Hi my amazing friends. I don’t know about you, but I am still reeling myself in from last week’s blog; Fear is Energy? It was so inspiring that I read it over and over, about 5 times, and I wrote it, lol. However, it’s a new week, and time to focus on something equally as important. Before I begin, let me tell you again, that I so enjoy the time we spend together. It is my pleasure to hear from you, so please talk to me by posting a comment. Your posts are all so inspiring.
I sincerely want to help you find your vocation. What is vocation? The word comes from the Latin word “vocare”, meaning to call. A vocation is a strong impulse or inclination to follow a particular activity or career. Your vocation is simply your “calling”. Do you know that in an ideal world the two words, job and vocation, would be one word? Sadly, in our industrial society, and for many of us, a job is our reality, and a vocation is a far, far away dream. It shouldn’t be this way. We should never have to wake up and have to go to a job or “work”, a day in our life. We should wake up every day excited to conquer the world, because we are following our GOD given passion.
We at Resume Energy; firmly believe there are ways to change this. First, there are many ways you can incorporate your career or vocational aspirations into your job. And there are ways to find your vocation. That’s my gift, I have always been able to help match people with a career. About 20 years ago I discovered that gift and like many of us, closed the door to it, because I had a mortgage to pay and children to feed. I wish I could say the mortgage was paid in full, but guess what my children are grown, and I am available now to help you find your calling, your passion, your vocation, or career energy. You are meant to be something in life, and I want to help you.
Stay with me for a minute longer for a quick story. This week I had the honor of coaching, a hot, new college graduate, who is are you ready for this, “excited about following his professional dream”, let’s call him a “newbie”. Yes, he was excited about graduation, and all that he accomplished,, but I could also sense, that he was also “fearful” about finding his niche. While interviewing him, I could hear both his certainty and uncertainty about his vocation, while he shared how he needed a “job” until he could start his “career”. Now we older individuals know that we can’t let this happen to him. Resume Energy doesn’t want him getting a job for “economic survival”, settling for a meager job, and eventually losing sight of his dream career. We, with wisdom know, that this is how and where it all begins and ends. I am so thankful he has chosen Resume Energy to work with him. I want him to be what he is meant to be, and not get a job for economic survival.
To avoid that “I have to have a job trap”, he was given several assignments. One was to journal about his dream career, because he needs to be encouraged to dream big, and to talk himself into following his vocation. Daily journaling about your dreams, hopes, and fears accomplishes this. I believe that our society would witness an increase in the “economy” if we would stop suppressing our human spirit, by believing we all need jobs to fill the pocket. That thought is emptying our soul.
When you were born, you cried, and the world rejoiced around you, because a new baby was born. We are all born with gifts, talents, and qualities that can help us foster and find our vocation and fulfillment. You don’t want to reach your 60’s and look back and say, oh my God, I’ve been 35 years working for the same company, yes I have a pension, but I was so miserable, what was I thinking?
You have a great calling, a mission, and a vocation, let Resume Energy help you find them and connect them.
Please allow me to share one more short story! I had dinner this past week with a dear friend who I have known since elementary school. If you know her like I do, you know that she has always loved to sew. She has such a knack for all that sewing and quilting. While enjoying our time together, somehow the question came up about her newest creation, and she said these words, “I just want to teach the basics”. Why did she say that? For those of you who really know me, you know of course, I started sharing ideas on how she can make this happen. “My suggestion, get a web cam and start teaching the basics to the world”. She smiled, but I am praying that she really heard me.
We my friends, must open up to the familiar, and be willing to work outside those circumstances that are stopping us from manifesting our calling.
I have figured out one of my life’s calling; let me and Resume Energy help you find yours. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I can send you information on the great virtual resume and career counseling packages Resume Energy has to offer.
Are you either stuck in a dead end job, or not following nor perhaps found your vocation? It is never too late to reinvent yourself and unleash those talents and gifts that are dormant.
My best regards!
