Legendary life coach Richard Leider says that â€œa calling is the inner urge to give your gifts away.â€?
How can a career become a calling? If work in the second half of life means better aligning our livelihoods with our values and aspirations, how can we proactively direct ourselves toward what could be called a bliss career?
How can we combine our financial needs with work that is personally fulfilling, relates to a deeply held interest or passion, uses our unique talents and skills, allows us independence and flexibility, or enables us to contribute to our near and far communities?
Would you be an entrepreneur? How about a social entrepreneur who starts a nonprofit? Would you work for pay, or is a paycheck not as important as it once was? Would you be a consultant? What skills would you need to learn for your bliss career? What kind of work would reduce your stress and promote a genuine sense of accomplishment?
Have you discovered your calling? How would you make your career into a calling?
