Here’s a fair question to ask yourself, “Is my story working for me?” If not, then perhaps it’s time to write a new story.
If your current story, which has been built over time as a function of your circumstances, isn’t taking you where you want to go, then what good is it? It’s time to create the circumstances you want to craft the story you want.
You don’t need a new city, a new job, a new house or a new thing, but a new story. One that’s different. One that’s useful. One that’s about opportunity and possibility. One that’s about connection and trust. A story that’s about your “why”, “for what” and “with whom”. A story that’s in harmony with who you want to be. When I realized this, it changed my life for the better. Here’s what I’ve learned:
- My purpose in life is a character purpose. It’s who I am at the core. For example, I’m a coach. That’s who I am at the core.
- My calling is how I fulfil my purpose. It’s not my career, but can be woven into how I make my 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).
