As children, we hear it all the time - "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Yet the answer to that seemingly simple question is not always clear, even when we reach adulthood. Many factors influence our professional paths, including our natural strengths and talents, our families' wishes, our own hopes and dreams for the future, and unexpected opportunities that arise along the way - or not. It can be difficult to distinguish outer pressure to succeed from inner ambition.
Even if you are firmly established in your career, you still might wonder if you're on the right path or if there is something more you could be doing with your life. After all, an occupation and a career are not necessarily one and the same, and working hard toward a long-held professional goal doesn't always bring the fulfillment you might expect.
Have you found your calling? The career path that's right for you? Or are you still searching for work that will satisfy your inner need to feel you're doing something important with your life? Read on to gain insight and predict whether you have found your true life's calling. If you haven't yet found the career that's right for you, there will be clear signs that your current job is out of sync with your true personality, skills or interests. These signs might include one or more of the following:
If you have, in fact, found your true calling, the signs are clear - even if you're the only one who believes in the path you've chosen. These signs might include one or more of the following:
If the information above has you wondering whether to stick with your current occupation or find something that is a closer match for your skills or personality, that's a sign in itself that you haven't yet found your true vocation. The next step in predicting which career is right for you is to consider your natural strengths and interests. Do you gravitate toward leadership roles, or do you do your best work when following someone else's direction? What about teamwork - do you enjoy collaboration or do you need autonomy? Do you think of yourself as a creative type, a problem-solver, a people person? Once you have identified your gifts and your professional "style," you can consider what type of work hours and environment you prefer. Relaxed, competitive, fast-paced, self-determined? The answers to these questions will steer you in the right direction, toward your professional destiny.
It can be difficult to follow your true path when doing so might mean accepting a more limited income for your family or facing the disapproval of someone whose opinion you value. But when it comes to your life's work, taking a risk - financial or otherwise - is sometimes the smartest thing you can do. Only you can predict whether that time is now.
