Word #97 of 100 – Calling

Word #97. Calling.

What are you uniquely good at and love doing? This is your gift.

When are you “in the zone” –  doing something that makes you lose track of time and energizes you? This is flow.

What opportunity or injustice do you see around you that haunts you or grabs your heart? This is a clear need in the world.

The intersection of these three spheres – your gift, flow and an opportunity or injustice –  is your calling.

At Acton, we believe finding a calling is not an elusive, mystical venture. It is an actionable process based on diving deeply into these three spheres. Doing so takes time, intention, reflection, hard work and sacrifice. But unless it’s your faith or your relationships, nothing matters as much for your own sake and for that of the world.
