Over the years I’ve heard dozens of
stories of writers who have gone down a related career path only to realize
they had wandered off course from a deeper calling.
- Fiction writers who became reporters.
- Poets working as public relations officers.
- Memoirists writing copy for corporate websites.
When you make career decisions based on pragmatics or to meet someone else’s expectations, it is possible to land somewhere near your calling.
Near, unfortunately, is not close enough fulfill true calling.
Eventually, you experience a nagging feeling that something isn’t right, but you probably ignore it.
Either you’ve invested so much time and energy in the path you’re on that you feel you can’t go back,
OR you are afraid that we won’t be able to make it doing what you want,
OR you think you are too old and it’s too late (didn’t we already bust that myth?)
And so, you soldier on.
At some point, that nagging feeling becomes a scream inside your head.
Things fall apart. You are desperately unhappy. Or worse, you get sick.
You can no longer ignore that your life has gone off track, because you are not doing the work you were put on this earth to accomplish.
At this point, you are ready to step up. Which doesn’t mean you are not scared.
Most of us are petrified
