Calling scale sum: 3-7
Living calling scale sum: 7-24
You have a mild or vague sense of what your calling is. Around 43% of working adults feel this way and around 57% of college students feel this way. You also have some opportunities to live it out. Many people who find themselves in this group feel fairly content; they are not living out their calling to the furthest extent possible, but they are “doing okay.” The danger of this level of contentment is that it can lead to complacency, a settling for the “good enough” even while the “best possible” may be within reach. Ask yourself: What made me answer only “somewhat true” when asked if I understood what my calling was in life? What exactly is missing for me? A clear understanding of what is missing will help you gain a clearer understanding of what needs to be adapted or changed to make it more likely to be “totally true” that you understand your calling, which in turn will make it easier for you to live out your calling fully. Another question worth asking is this: How can I craft my job to make it more likely that I am living out my calling to the fullest? In chapter 7 of MYJAC, we offer several techniques to help you craft your job so that it aligns more closely with your purpose in life and gives you more opportunities to make a positive difference in the world around you.
