I received an email:

“Dear Elvira,

I’m a 41 y.o., and I still can’t find my true calling. I’m always trying something new. At first, it turns out well but then I got bored. Can you tell me what could inspire me?”

My answer is:

“Sure. I have The True Vocation Meditation. It will give you temporary relief, but since it consists of false assumptions which vanish into thin air very quickly, you need to repeat it every other hour.

Also, I have a very good mat to fall flat on your face with comfort.

Actually, you’re deceiving yourself by saying that everything turns out well. Let’s face it: You try something, you don’t see immediate results, and then you quit. You’re bored not with a particular occupation, but with inevitable downfalls and the need to return to square one. You are looking for business that brings you immediate success. I’m afraid to disappoint you, but you won’t find it.

You may gain recognition when you’re at the top of your game. But being at the top means that you have all the necessary elements of your business covered.

For example, if you’re a fashion designer, you should know how to create outlooks, sew, organize photoshoots, and set up sales. If at least one element is missing, you can’t make it. Any serious business has numerous elements, and to master them all, you need huge reserves of perseverance and patience. If you want to be at the top, your whole life will consist of mistakes and failures. But in a few years you will become a true master—just because you’ve tried everything and eventually found what works.

Most people don’t need any “true callings” to be happy. If you’re impressed with somebody else’s results, it doesn’t mean that you want to pay the same price.

So, make a decision: either you stop searching for the perfect match and invest a lot into becoming a true master, or you admit that that doesn’t suit you—and there is nothing wrong with it. The purpose of human life is to be happy, not to impress others with achievements that wouldn’t bring you joy anyway.
