Oprah’s Lifeclass Episode 6: How Lady Gaga found her calling
Every single person who is born has a purpose, Oprah says in tonight’s episode. In this class, she shares real-life stories of how she, Lady Gaga and others found their callings. As they show us, sometimes, your calling is right in your own neighborhood.
Everybody has a calling!
Your’re real job is to feel your calling and begin honoring it now.
How a setback in your life can actually push you in the right direction.
(My comment: Like when you loose your job and finally start thinking about what you really want to do and use this opportunity t actually do it )
Life is teaching you all the time. Your life is speaking to you all the time in all of your experiences.
Diane von Furstenberg once said that she always new what kind of woman she wanted to be and so she set out to become that woman.
Doing what you don’t want to do is a message and everything around you in your life is messaging to you about you all the time.
Knowing what you don’t want to do often opens up the path to what you do want to do.
You will feel the calling of your heart, the opening of your life’s purpose through things that you don’t want to do and also from things that you really do want to do.
It’s a feeling. For most of us it’s just a little feeling that I really enjoy this. It’s feeding the heart of that which you love, that which gives you your juice, that which makes you come alive and when you are able to do that you are able to blossom in your own life and to give that kind of joy energy life force to what you do and who you are.
Noticing what you don’t want can make you figure out what you were meant to do.
Honoring and following your calling feeds and fuels your life.
It’s never too late to figure out your purpose and start to live your best life.
"Regret minimization" means choosing actions that create as few regrets as possible.
The way for you to know what it is you’re supposed to do, is to listen and be open to what you’re feeling. If you’re shut down, if you’re disconnected, if you’re not aware, you’re walking around literally sleeping your life. You will not be able to figure it out.
It all comes back to recognizing the power that is within yourself, that there is a deeper part of yourself that is not your ego, that is not your personality but there is a quiet, still place inside of all of us and when you ask what is it really I’m supposed to be doing. If you ask and you live with an open heart, the answer will show itself to you. The answer comes to you when you’re open to receiving it but you have to be awake to hear it!
Again what a great episode!
