What’s the Difference Between a Job and a Calling?


Job. Calling. Same diff? No! So what’s the difference?

The difference between a job and a calling is the difference between having to do something and getting to do something. It’s the difference between earning a paycheck and making an impact. It’s the difference between hoping to switch to something else and investing deeply every day because what you’re doing is WHO you are.

It’s the difference between working to live and living to work. It’s the difference between doubting whether anybody cares about what you do and believing with confidence that you are changing the world. It’s the difference between feeling like your life is running out and knowing that of all things, this—this is what you were born to do.

It’s the difference between settling for good and fighting for great.

Don’t be a settler. You have a calling. Fight for it.
