Passion 101: Discover Your Calling in Life

IMG_7064I believe finding your passion in life takes effort.  I know this sounds like common sense, but are you aware of the number of people that email me each month asking me about life and how to find purpose while doing nothing new and different.  You must take a different strategy, doing something new in order to discover something new.  Columbus might not have discovered a new route to Asia, but he never would have found the New World remaining in the known world.

      1. I started writing off and on and not seriously in 2005 when I was 37. It took me another 7 years to finally finish something and 3 more to get published. I know authors in their 60s and 70s who ate just publishing. That’s the good thing about writing, it doesn’t matter how old you are.

  1. I totally agree with you. Doing something new can spur you to finding something you will totally love. Like blogging for me- I just started doing this, and it is something that has given me more fulfillment than i thought it will.
    Still on the way to trying more new things.

    Thanks, Dray, for posting Graham Young’s article on “How to Discover Your Calling.”
    You are absolutely right that it takes doing things to find your calling. I had been to El Salvador twice and protested the US supported war. I knew for 30 years that I wanted to write this story! I finally really got my jumpstart when I was writing my thesis for my MFA in Creative Writing at National University! I never imagined it would take so long, but it turned out to all be perfect timing. I finally self-published my novel in March of 2015!
    It was worth ever minute that I spent on it! 😉 <3
    Sherrie Miranda's historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too:

    P.S. I am now working on the prequel. It's called "Crimes & Impunity in New Orleans."
