Discover your calling
YOUR CALLING is a special gift Higher Power has bestowed on you. You want this gift to benefit you and help others, and when turned into your career makes you excited, happy and fulfilled with your life.
When you discover your calling, you live with purpose and passion. It confers uniqueness on you and you operate effectively at a higher level.
Here are the characteristics of someone who has discovered their higher calling in life.
You are inspired every day. This means you are motivated to take daily action towards your dream, vision or goal.
You have that urge to share your gift with the world and make a difference. You want to make contributions that will change the world for the better.
When you discover your calling, you also experience excitement, happiness and a sense of fulfillment.
You are a living magnet
Most people spend a lot of time thinking about their special gift and the perfect execution plan. A better move is to start doing it first. You’re wasting time if you are thinking about the ‘what ifs’ because they are going to stop you in your tracks.
Remember you are a living magnet and you attract into your life based on what you focus on whether wanted or unwanted.
Energy attracts like energy in the vast expanse of time and space that comprises our universe. If you are emitting positive vibes, expect to draw good things.
Be sensitive to opendoors and new opportunities that will present themselves when you take the first step. Open your eyes and heart to the opportunities that come your way right now.
Follow successful examples
One way to get ideas on your calling is to research on the people who you want to be. You may want to be like Brian Tracy, impacting lives positively as he has done to millions of people worldwide. Write down the main things your successful example does and place yourself in his/her shoes and ask if you can cope with them.
If you don’t want to travel extensively like Tracy because you want to spend more time with your family, you may choose to create your website or blog and work anywhere around the world.
The more specific you get, the clearer the picture becomes.
Learn from your mentors
Do you know why your calling is a special gift? A gift is meant to be given away to others.
Oprah Winfrey had several mentors in her life. These were the people who inspired her to live her dream life. Her description of Maya Angelou as a mentor, mother/sister and friend is instructive. “She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life. The world knows her as a poet, but at the heart of her, she was a teacher. When you learn, teach. When you get, give” is one of my best lessons from her” Oprah wrote.
What important lessons have you learned from your role models? Such lessons could help you become the person you want to become.
Share your gifts with the people who matter
Cultivate the habit of sharing what you have with the people around you.
A gift is meant to be given away to someone else. Find that special person in your life and give him/her a special gift. It helps to improve and strengthen your relationship with that person.
I remember presenting a special gift to my wife. It was neatly wrapped. She was so excited when she opened the wrapper and found her special gift. That was how we were both wired. She was excited receiving it as I was in giving it.
Periodically give what is precious to the audiences who will benefit the most from your gifts. “Happiness is real when shared.”(Jon Krakauer).
Your life should touch many other lives
It was Johann Gottlieb Fitchte who once commented, “You could not remove a single grain of sand from its place without thereby…changing something throughout all the parts of the immeasurable whole.”
My mission in life is to touch as many lives as I can as long as I live. It is the main reason I contribute features to various newspapers on a regular basis.
Have you heard of the butterfly effect? How might the flap of a butterfly’s wings ultimately cause a tornado? Your life definitely has effect on the lives of the people around you. You should exert a positive influence on the people around you.
You should never underestimate the power of your gift and what it can do for you and for others. Small changes can have significant consequences just like how a pebble can send ripples from one end to the other end of a pond.
When you touched lives with your gift, it was a life changing experience for you and for the other person. Be determined to live with purpose and significance.
Let your life touch as many lives as you can. Treasure your life!
Do not procrastinate
Procrastination is the reason most people fail in life. Procrastination is the habit of delaying action or not taking action on our dreams.
A procrastinator may give a thon of reasons as to why he has not taken action on his plans. It does not make sense to procrastinate.
Most of the time it is not the lack of planning that is impeding us. We do not take action because of a lack of determination, conviction and dedication to our vision or dream.
We allow doubts to stop us in our tracks. We sometimes view the task at hand to be overwhelming.
Some people wait for perfect conditions which never come. They therefore remain stuck in life. In the end they become failures.
Most people do not take action because of risk and fear of the unknown. We need to overcome our fears, stick to our dreams and push ourselves onto the finishing line.
Get out of your comfort zone and take action to change the world.
The reason for writing on the Core Principles Of Manifestation is to help readers apply them to transform themselves into powerful individuals capable of achieving great things in life. The manifestation process involves taking the pictures in your mind and transforming them into reality. This is something everybody can do. With deep conviction, determination, ambition, singleness of purpose and having strong enough reasons why you want to do something, any goal can be achieved.
If you don’t give up, you will ultimately succeed. You were engineered for success and prosperity, go on and be it.
Wishing you a fulfilling life!
Yours in inspiration,
