Discover your five callings

Shelley and Chad kick off Season 2 with a series on "callings." In this week's episode, the co-hosts tee off the subject with their own working definition of what calling is and then dive into their own five-part framework for how to discern and build your callings.

Let us hear your calling stories. What are the most inspiring stories of people who have clearly found their callings? 

In what ways would you say you have found your calling already? How do you know who you are already? 

In what ways would you say you are still looking for your calling?

If you’re interested in callings go to Big Self School.com/corevalues and download the free activity we’ve created for you to get clear on your core values. It’s fun. It takes 15 minutes, and we believe core values are a critical component of your callings work.
