I sell real estate for a living. It is my calling.
Everyone is “called” to do something. It is the wise person who listens to that voice directing you on your life’s path and leads you to success if done right. You must know with absolute certainty that this is what you were meant to do.
If you feel like what you do is work, an obligation or drudgery, it is not your calling.
When you love your job, look forward to work and the day’s journey; you have found your calling. If you can’t wait to help others, then you have found your calling.
Some people might call it passion. But you can be passionate about something and it is not your calling.
Martin Luther King said it best:
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
Whatever you are called to do…do it well.
Do it with conviction.
Do it diligently.
Do it with persistence.
God will bless you for it.
