RePurpose Your Occupation to a Vocation

Did you know that job satisfaction in the United States is at a 22-year low? I believe one reason is that too many people have tried to fit their vocation into their occupation. What do I mean by that?

The origin of the word vocation is “spiritual calling” (I would venture to say that most people don’t feel very “spiritual” about their 9 to 5). Your true vocation is linked to your life purpose. Unfortunately, not enough people understand their life purpose or do what’s necessary to transition to a career that reflects it.

With a deeper understanding of the word vocation, recognize that it is much broader than just your occupation. In a perfect world of course your occupation would be your vocation, but for most people that’s not the case. Many in the workforce are frustrated because they have a deep yet unfulfilled desire to do work they believe exemplifies and flows from their life purpose. Unfortunately, they don’t know how to make that a reality.

If you’re looking for a way to transition from your occupation to your vocation, I will provide a few clues in one my next posts.

Have you been able to find an occupation that closely aligns with your purpose? How did you do it? Looking forward to your comments.
