Have You Settled For Your “Shadow” Calling?

He made some really good arguments.

I’ve been revisiting The War of Art by Steven Pressfield recently.

And this gave me goosebumps…

"Sometimes, when we're terrified of embracing our true calling, we'll pursue a shadow calling instead. That shadow career is a metaphor for our real career. Its shape is similar, its contours feel tantalizingly the same. But a shadow career entails no real risk. If we fail at a shadow career, the consequences are meaningless to us."


I think so many people are in this position.

They’re meant to write books and become an author… but instead they write for other people…

Or they’re meant to be an entrepreneur… but instead they help someone else build their business…

We pursue only a “shadow” of our true calling (we sell peanuts).

Because there’s no risk.

The risk — and the greatest reward — only come into play when we pursue our true calling.

To do that, you have to believe in yourself.

And you have to recognize the power you have within.

Charles F. Haanel wrote this…

"All power that anyone can possibly use is within, waiting to be made visible, first by recognizing it, then affirming it as ours."

You are more powerful than your shadow calling.

Everything you need to achieve your true calling… you already have inside of you.

It’s only that you have to reach out and grab it.

So here’s a tough question for you…

Are you settling for your shadow calling?

Or risking it all to pursue your true calling?

It’s never too late to make a shift 🙂
