Finding your true calling can be difficult to do. A lot of people end up trying a few different products and services or even businesses before they eventually find the right one. For some, they have more than one true calling that is a combination of areas where they can apply their passions, experience, and strengths.
My journey has been a long and winding one, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I’ve held tight to my decision to enjoy the journey. If something doesn’t feel good, then I pivot. What’s interesting is that having tried so many different things has given me an incredible ability to help my clients with MANY different offers, because I’ve tried about everything once 😛 I’ve been a blogger, course-creator, coach and a few other things along the way. I know that I’ve finally found the PERFECT fit in the Mom CEO Club because it combines all of my favorite topics – giving me the variety that I crave, but all in ONE offer, so I can FOCUS!
Whether it’s creating a business, finding the perfect career, or volunteering for an important charity, you will know when you’ve found your true calling from these five signs.
1. It Aligns with Your Core Values
Your true calling should be an extension of your beliefs and worldview. You work every day to create a version of the world that you imagine because by making it so, you believe that you’ll make the world and better place. This is what your true calling means to you. (I have an incredible exercise in the Mom CEO Club where we walk through simple steps to create your life purpose and mission statement, and it includes your core values.)
2. It Doesn’t Feel Like Work
Your work is no longer the grind that it used to be. Your work should enable you to create the lifestyle you want, which includes your work. The lines between work and fun begin to become blurred as you are continually pursuing your ideal life. You build a business that SUPPORTS your life and other ambitions instead of requiring you to sacrifice everything. I often say that working on your business should often feel like self-care because it’s the learning and growing that nourishes your soul!
3. You Immerse Yourself Completely
When you’ve found your true calling, it is easy for you to become completely immersed in what you are doing, instead of watching the minutes tick away. Your work absorbs you, and you find yourself wishing you had more time to work. You don’t have to force work when you are doing something you love.
4. Your Stress Levels Decrease
To counteract the stress hormones that seem to be prevalent in a majority of people these days, it’s important to match them with a more significant amount of happy hormones. Working on something you love will naturally lower the cortisol and other stress hormones. When you find your true life’s calling you will start to notice an increase in your energy levels and an overall improvement in your well-being.
5. You Have Better Harmony in Your Life
One of the hardest things for people to accomplish is what I call harmony and others call balance in life. Too many people live their lives trying to keep one step ahead of their commitments and mounting bills. When you’ve found your true calling, your work gives you the opportunity to work, live, and have fun. The lines between each overlap and you find it hard to tell the difference between them.
Many people struggle to identify what it is that they are meant to do and struggle to decide on the path they should take. Sometimes, you need to take a step back and think about what you love to do and identify the business paths that come with it. If you want to feel inspired and encouraged by other moms who are searching for or have found their true calling in their business and life, you will LOVE the Mom CEO Club! We’d love to meet you!
