The first step is taking action. If you fall, get up. Keep taking action steps.
Discover your talents and gifts. There are many resources online, books at the library, bookstores, hire a counselor, a life coach, take a career college course etc.
If you already know in your heart your calling or purpose… then start the journey.
Experience if you like it, test the waters, talk with people that already work in that field and ask a lot of questions.
The journey can start with a visit or a volunteer opportunity at different places to check it out. Create a timeline to volunteer that you are comfortable with such as spending a couple hours, a day, a week, a month, etc.
Remember that mistakes and failures are normal and they are stepping stones to find your true path. Mistakes are life lessons that help you find the right path. If you don’t like something that is a good sign not to pursue it.
You can write all your talents, strengths and gifts on paper to start. You can create a map and decide which roads to take on the journey.
Expect detours and know that detours are there for a good reason; use clarity, wisdom and discernment on your journey.
Start by taking a small step every day toward your heart purpose, your dream, or your calling.
