Knowing your calling is the best gift to you

When you know what you really want to do in your life then that knowledge is one of the best gifts you can ever receive. This is because clear and concise knowledge of your life goals give you direction, purpose and mission. It makes your life meaningful. Jordan Peterson says that life is suffering and he is right because we all face hardships in life. Some people face more hardships than others. Having an ultimate goal in life makes all those hardships bearable. Other than that, it also gives you something to live for, something you can be known for in the world and something which fulfills you from inside. That is a really big gift!

Jeff Bezos said once, "You can have a job, a career or a calling. And the best thing is to have a calling." Certainly this is true. When you don't know your goal then you just drift around in life and you reach nowhere. But when you know your goal and you can figuratively 'see' it then you can make an action plan which you can follow in order to reach that goal.

So, how do you know what is your calling? We have talked about this method in one of our earlier articles too. The below points have been taken directly from one of our old articles: Finding your passion shouldn't be hard:

Here is a little list of things which you can do to identify your passion and what you love to do. This list is not absolute and you may try many more things but it will definitely give you a starting point:

1. Try doing everything which you want to do.
This one is really simple but difficult to implement. However, with the help of social media you can very easily create content doing what you love to do and post it online. When you will receive reactions and engagements from people you will know what you can do best. This will take time but it is 100% worth it.

2. Eliminate regret. 
Imagine, you are 80+ year old and are sitting at your home/retirement home and you are just thinking about your whole life. How do you want your life to be so that you have no regrets at that point in your life? Because that is the point of no return. When you are old, you can't do anything great and you just wait for the end. This is the harsh truth of life. Life is short and you must make it so you don't have any regrets when you leave this world. Regret is one of the strongest emotions in the universe. Make sure you don't have to feel it very hard.

The second point is taken directly from one of Jeff Bezos' interview where he talks about finding what you really want to do in life.

Lastly, you must spend time in figuring out your calling. It is very important. Even if it takes you 5 years or 10 years to figure out your true calling you must do it. It is worth living the remaining 70 or 60 years of your life doing what you love to do and loving every moment of it.

Thank you for reading. I hope this article helped you in some way.
