Is it true that most people know their “calling?”
Peter Drucker spent most of the last 10 years of his life working with non-profits, much of that with mega church leaders.
In the new book Drucker & Me, here’s what he told his friend Bob Bufford about “calling.”
“I am convinced that many, if not most, serious believers at some level understand what their calling is, but that understanding may be buried under years of busyness and distraction. Yet, that suppressed sense of calling stays with them for years.”
As a life coach I’ve have talked to lots of you who want your lives to count but are afraid that acting on your calling would mean being irresponsible as a provider for your family. I have spent most of the last 20 years as a coach encouraging people to act on that gentle nudge toward doing what seems “impossible.” I have seen that simple encouragement unleash positive energy, lift discouraged spirits, and uncover resources that make the challenging seem possible after all.
Here is the essence of my “calling” and my business Value Proposition:
I help high potential individuals
Understand and apply their unique and most powerful talents and passions
So they can make a larger impact, leave a legacy and thrive financially.
Have you had a pretty clear sense all along about your calling? Is that calling blocked behind feeling trapped in the realities of life? Are you doing what you were put on earth to accomplish? What would it take to release you to fully live in that calling?
