Stumbling on Your Calling

With one inspired foot in front of the other

A friend confided that he really wanted to find out ‘what he wants do and be doing it already’.

It felt like a symptom of a larger common sentiment; this idea of uncovering your life’s work with a Eureka moment that could happen at anytime.

As Neil deGrasse Tyson puts it “when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock.”

What makes you feel proud of yourself, makes your brain focus a little narrower, your blood start pumping?

“Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”- Howard Thurman

Can you do a little bit of what makes you come alive today and a little more tomorrow?

That snowballs into ‘what you do’ and becomes a calling. Until one day maybe it’s not anymore. Then sit down and ask yourself again: what makes me come alive?

Because “the most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.” — Neil deGrasse Tyson

Generate your own motivation with one inspired step in front of the other.
