How do I find my true calling in life? This is a frequently asked question. Above all, we ask ourselves this question when we feel uncomfortable in our current job or when we ask ourselves about the meaning of life.
How can I follow my true calling?
Ring ring. The alarm clock rings and there is no reason to get up. Why I’m here? Why am I doing this job?
Here in this blog post, we shed light on questions such as:
- Why do many people feel dissatisfied with their job?
- What is my true calling and how can I find it?
The following tips will also help you you can find your own calling.
Find an appointment – step by step
We, humans, are the most intelligent species on planet earth. Our ancestors spent their lives to survive. The basic setting was eating or eating.
Nowadays we live in a society of prosperity.
As soon as our bellies are full and we have a roof over our heads, our basic needs are breastfed. After that, we have a need for security, belonging, and appreciation. The self -fulfillment is at the top of the pyramid.
When we arrived there, we ask ourselves different questions about the meaning of life.
This also includes the question:
- Why I’m here?
- What is my life’s work?
- What is my true calling?
- What’s the meaning of my life?
Everyone has their own concept here and in the end, everyone bears the answer. In my opinion, however, we are here to live!
I don’t just mean “to live” life but to create a life that enjoys living joy. So when the alarm clock rings in the morning wake up and get up to the day with anticipation.
Here are a few questions that you can answer to discover your true calling step by step.
Take your time to answer these questions. It is best to answer them in writing so that you can fall back on them later and add additions.
Below I list the most important steps.
Step 1: Get to know yourself (strengths, interests, values)
- What do I enjoy?
- What is my current hobby?
- What are my strengths?
- What is my talent?
- Which topics do I care about?
In the first step, you can also ask friends and family. Often they have a different look and have known us for a long time. You can also carry out personality tests on the Internet in order to get to know and experience yourself better.
Step 2: Explore professional fields (internships, information talks)
- What kind of professions are there that match my skills?
- Where could I do an internship?
This step is to find a professional field that suits your skills and topics that interest you. Professional fields are z. B. Health, service, construction, IT, art, culture, media, environment, and much more.
An internship is a great way to “sniff” into a new profession. This allows you to recognize immediately and, above all, feel whether the job could suit you or not.
Step 3: try out (change of occupation, independence)
Finally, you just have to try out whether you want to take change occupation or only small changes and adjustments are necessary.
Maybe you want to start your own business because there is no suitable job for you. Maybe you are a pioneer in your field and a pioneer of the topics that you want to share with the world.
Possible obstacles in the search for the appeal
Who does not know that? This loud voice in the head says: “What if?”
- I quit my permanent position and then find no new job.
- The new job is not as well paid as the old one?
- What happened if…?
Fears and doubts
will spread during the new decision. This is completely normal. You can also write down your fears and doubts here. Sometimes this helps a lot because then they are very followed.
Everything in the head often seems very diffuse and intangible. If you write it down, you can follow the fear to the root and find solutions for it.
Can represent an obstacle in the search for your true calling. Maybe it is time to look at your finances. What do I give out? Where does my money flow there? A good old budget would be a start here.
You can also simply look at and divide a 3 -monthly line-up of your bank account. How much do I give out and for what? And how much money comes in?
Then you have a good overview and may be able to delete unnecessary expenses.
There is always the opportunity to get into a new job very slowly. For example, you could reduce the hours of your current job and work in your new professional field for a few hours. Then you have the certainty that you still have a stable income.
Could also be a potential obstacle. Honesty is always best here. Talk to your partner.
I am quite sure that solutions can also be found here as long as everyone pulls together. Isn’t it better to have a partner who is happy? Would you definitely encourage your partner, to follow his heart and pursue his true calling?

Tips for finding an appointment
Tip 1: Use the resources in your area (career counseling, career centers)
You can make an appointment with career counseling, go to professional fairs, or consult career centers. You can also make an appointment with a coach that specializes in finding an appointment. With coaching, you will be accompanied step by step.
You don’t have to do everything alone!
Tip 2: Continuing education, training, online course
Invest in your future. Further training and further training are an investment in yourself. Do not see it as an extra edition, but as equipment. You boast of skills and skills to appear confident and as an expert in a new topic.
Tip 3: Surrounding with inspiring people
You are the average of the 5 people with whom you spend most of the time.
You may have heard this quote before. What are the interests of these 5 people with whom you spend most of the time? It can be an online person. Maybe an idol from YouTube or a podcast?
We are constantly influenced by the ways of thinking and behaving of the people with whom we surround ourselves the most.
Even your professional success will be influenced by your environment. We take over behaviors, thought patterns, and perspectives from others. If you are in an environment that loves security, e.g. B. in civil servants, it may be that you come across a great lack of understanding if you want to become self-employed.
Reflect on your situation. This is happy to record this in writing:
Write down the 5 people with whom you spend the most. What do these people like to do? In what job do these people work? Is it still what you want yourself?
If you want to change yourself, it is sometimes essential that your environment will change.
Tip 4: move back to your childhood
Children are authentic and playing is part of the main task of their lives. There are no obligations and no financial pressure. You just do what you enjoy! You are our teachers!
This should be the condition of everyone: do what we enjoy!
- What did you enjoy in your childhood?
- How did you spend your time? What was your hobby?
- Where did you spend your time?
The answer to these questions can bring you closer to finding your true calling
Tip 5: connect to your intuition
Often we humans just think too much. How about if you try to bring your thoughts to silence?
Sit down or lie down and are in silence. Watch your thoughts. You can also imagine that every thought comes in a cloud and you just let him fly.
Do not hold the thought, do not follow it. Just put it in a cloud and let it move on.
With a bit of practice, you will find that you are in a kind of timeless and weightless space in which thoughts no longer play a role. Now you can start to feel.
Our body is the best indicator to make decisions.
If your mind has come to rest, you can also carry out a few thoughts.
Think about a job or a work situation. How would it feel if you would do this work every day? What do you really want to do? What is it that makes you happy?
You can also make changes. Where is your field of work, who do you work with together, etc.? So you can see in which situation you feel comfortable and what is coherent for you.
Tip 6: Believe in yourself and start to live in your own calling
Maybe you haven’t found your appointment yet because you don’t believe in it. Or maybe you believe that work has to feel tedious and difficult. Might be possible you believe that money cannot simply be earned. Maybe you believe that there are no jobs in your dream field.
Your beliefs can prevent you from not doing what you want to do deep in yourself.
Beliefs come from our parents, school, or the media. If you start watching your thoughts, you can expose and then replace your beliefs. For example, you can think of now: I will find and live my calling. I’m absolutely sure about this.
Believe that is only a step towards success. You also have to start going that way!
Nobody says that the search for your calling is easy. It is work and above all, it is work on yourself! On this trip, you will get to know yourself better.
You will see and cope with your fears and doubts. You will expand your horizons by exploring new professional fields and trying out various options. At home, in a quiet closet, you won’t find your calling.
You have to go out and try new things.
It is worth investing time and effort to find the job that fulfills you. In the end, it is much more difficult and tedious not to go on this path, because you have to torture yourself out of bed every day and deal with something for many hours that doesn’t interest you.
Keep in mind how wonderful it could be to finally wake up in the morning and go for what your heart beats for. Go and believe in yourself!
You create your life!
In the end, there is only to say:
I don’t know if it gets better or if it gets different. But it has to be different if it should get better.
