Sometimes we all feel like we are going around in circles and don’t want to carry on doing things that no longer resonate with us or a job that is not making a difference in the world we want to make. If you have already realized your need to find your true calling in life and create a personal mission, chances are that you will have to take some time off your everyday routine and listen to what is on your mind. You have all the answers, you just need to learn to listen.

Soul Searching

There are different ways of embarking on a soul searching journey. You could go on a trip, take a break, go on a meditation course, or simply catch up with old friends. No matter which method you choose, you are going to be able to make the most out of your mindfulness and listen to the thoughts you usually don’t notice.

Look at Your Values

Once you have identified what is missing from your current life, you will need to come clear about your values. You might be doing something you don’t believe in, or something that you straight disagree with. It is important that everything you do is aligned with your deepest values and beliefs. If your family is the most important thing in your life, spending 60 hours a week at the office might create an internal conflict.

Ask Your Friends about Your Strengths and Opportunities

If you want to discover your purpose, you will need to find out what you are good at and where you can improve. It is often hard for us to look at ourselves from an outsider’s point of view, and that is why you will need to ask your friends for help. Simple exercises, such as asking them about what they respect about you the most, and what your main strengths are will reveal new directions in your life.

Build Your Support Network

No matter if you are looking to make small changes in your life or big ones, you will need to build your own support network that will be behind you and keep you going, no matter how hard the journey is. Surround yourself with like minded people, and you can tackle every challenge.

Engage In Spiritual Awakening

No matter if you are religious, or grew up a Christian and distanced yourself from the church and organized religion, you can still get help from people who are ready to guide you on your spiritual journey. You can find a supportive community at the Universal Church, and find out more about the Bible and the ethical values the Western civilization shares. You don’t have to be spending every Sunday in church to get closer to your Creator and improve your relationship with yourself and others.  

Making the most out of your life often involves evaluating the past and finding new avenues for the future. Seek help and you will be on your way to discover your true calling in life.
