Calling scale sum: 3-7
Living calling scale sum: 25-30
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 are also generally able to live it out to the fullest. People in this group often have a job that gives them some sense of meaning and that helps others, and feel completely able to approach their job this way without constraints. This is in many ways a good spot to be. However, when a person feels unsure that she or he understands her calling, living it out for a sustained period of time is difficult. 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. To help you get there, we describe a number of strategies in MYJAC that you can pursue. For example, take an active approach, and start by assessing your skills, interests, personality, and values, and using this understanding of yourself to explore and identify occupations that would provide an excellent fit for your personal attributes. This process can be aided by the help of trusted friends or family, or a trained career counselor.
