Why am I here? What’s the purpose of life?
These are questions nearly everyone has asked at least once, or continue to ask daily. In today’s Broken Brain Podcast Big Idea Tuesday episode, Dhru challenges us to think about the difference between our “calling” and the “expression of our calling.” They sound similar, but they are two very different things.
A “calling” is your answer to the question, “Why am I here?” How we put our calling to use is what Dhru calls “the expression of our calling.” The expression is where our skill meet our passion and is the outward execution of our internal calling.
For example, Oprah’s calling is to use her passion for teaching to uplift others. The Oprah Winfrey Show, her magazines, speeches, movies, and overall empire are an expression of that calling. Her calling was always there, even from a young age. The mission in her life is to get better and better at expressing and executing that calling. And I think we can all agree that she is phenomenal at doing that.
In this episode, Dhru talks about his three big ideas on finding your calling and purpose:
- Your calling has already found you.
- There’s a difference between our actual calling and the expression of our calling.
- We find the expression of our calling in action.
Dhru says the number one most important thing to focus on is this: remember the answer to the question “Why am I here?”, and let go of anything that doesn’t serve that higher purpose, especially your own limiting beliefs.
