Answer the calling to fulfil your dreams and live your purpose.
When we respond to what we are called to do, and we live our truth, we are living authentically. We can bring passion into what we do because there is not only a sense of purpose but a great sense of joy.
Living with passion is easy when you are using your God-given talents and fulfilling your purpose. The challenging part isn’t even knowing what we are good at. It is learning how to use that talent in the service of others.
Musicians join or create bands; artists use many different platforms to display their work. Each brings joy to the person sharing their talent and to the one on the receiving end. This is an easy example. Coaching, creating a product that helps people, sharing inspiration, cooking are all others. The list is endless because there is a vast amount of talent out there.
Living your purpose doesn’t mean life will be a bed of roses. It is not always easy, and there will be challenges, pitfalls and speed bumps along the journey. It means that you will be more joyful in your work, and you will bring joy to others.
A designer doesn’t always see the customer buy their product, but some people take home a new shirt, dress, or suit and feel good. The designer finds joy in making the creation while the others find happiness when they wear it. The two may never meet, but the designer is living their purpose, so it doesn’t matter. They answered their calling and followed their dreams.
It may take a while for you to figure out what your talent is. That is okay. Sometimes we have to look back to our younger self for guidance. We are less prone to negativity when we are younger and, as a result, are more open about what we like and don’t like.
Ask yourself this question. If money wasn’t an issue, what would you do that would bring you joy? Next, ask yourself how you could take that and turn it into service for others?
When we turn our dreams and talents into reality and begin living authentically, we can see the end purpose or goal. We will have to learn many things, but we can learn from others who are already doing something similar.
You may have to start as a hobby until you get enough forward momentum towards living your dream full-time. That is okay. Some hobbies are just that. They bring us joy but are not tied to our true purpose.
Only you can take action and respond to the call. Others can help and guide you along your journey, but the journey must be yours. Don’t be afraid to chase your dream. Go for it and share your talents with the world.
There will always be work ahead to turn our vision into reality, but nothing can happen until we first answer the calling.
