So many of us buy books, purchase videos and subscribe to self-help services, only to fall short of finishing them. Why? It seems like the focus is on the teaching, not the learning, i.e. the teacher not the student. Self-help teachers get rich and famous, but students don’t even graduate. Research shows we are generally bad at finishing what we start.
I looked for a book that would help me by serving me, where the author would be someone who would personally and figuratively “hold my hand” so that I would finish what I started. When I couldn’t find that book, I decided to write it. Craft Your Calling is that book.
The problem in the personal development and self-improvement market for the target reader is that every book merely tells you what you need to do to be a better version of yourself. Every author presents their list of things needed to grow and find meaning in life. Their end goal is to educate the target reader without regard for actual learning and growth.
In Craft Your Calling, you’ll be taken through a 30-day warm-up to prepare you to train for your calling. A calling is a worthy occupation where one derives meaning. It requires hunger and passion. It leverages the one true gift we have. We’re all here for a reason. We’re all here to do something great. But it’s not through our job. It’s through our calling. The Bible says in Ephesians 4:1 that we are to “live up to the life which God called you.”
- Your purpose in life is a character purpose. It’s who you are at the core. For example, I’m a coach. That’s who I am at the core.
- Your calling is how you fulfil your purpose. It’s not your career, but can be woven into how you make your living. This is why I define my calling as transforming careers into entrepreneurial ministries. In other words, I coach others to understand their purpose (their who) and see how it can be used to serve others in God’s name to make a living (their how).
After reading the book, if you decide to start your training, then I’ll be your coach. And you’ll actually get me, not someone else. I completed the journey upon which you’ll want to embark. I have crafted my calling, and my story uniquely qualifies me to be your coach. This book is not for everyone, but if you commit, then you won’t have to walk your journey alone. You will learn to wake up every single day and continually, steadfastly feed your good wolf. As you feed your good wolf, you will craft your calling.
