Our Unique Call ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
“So many terrible things happen every day that we start wondering whether the few things we do ourselves make any sense. When people are starving only a few thousands miles away, when wars are raging close to our borders, when countless people in our cities have no homes to live in, our own activities look futile. Such considerations, however, can paralyze and depress us…
Here the word call becomes important. We are not called to save the world, solve all problems, and help all people. But each of us has our own unique call, in our families, in our work, in our world. We have to keep asking God to help us see clearly what our call is and to give us the strength to live out that call with trust. Then we will discover that our faithfulness to a small task is the most healing response to the illnesses of our time.”
As Christian Women Entrepreneurs, we are called to make a difference in the marketplace through our gifts and talents and resources. And as Henri Nouwen states so clearly, each of us has our own unique call — in our families, in our work, in our world. Do you know what task God has called you to do here on earth? What problem you’re meant to solve? Do you know who you are at your core and the blessing you innately share with others?
In my interview “4 Keys to Start Your Business,” I discuss the essentials of entrepreneurial success: Purpose, Performance, Prosperity, and Platform.
I lead with PURPOSE.
Knowing your purpose is critical to building a sustainable business, regardless of the kind of business you own.
Without purpose, you lack vision.
Without purpose, you lack motivation.
Without purpose, you lack a north star to guide you.
If you are ready to take a deep dive into discerning your own life purpose — and discover why I believe purpose, performance, prosperity, and platform form the pillars of a solid foundation for your business — listen to my interview by clicking on the arrow below.
