Mickey剛失業,跟朋友Suzanne 一起吃飯,Suzanne 勸他說,這未必不是件好事。她說,

S: Back at my old job there were some days where I barely used my brain at all! I just did the same thing over and over again.

M: So what happened after you got fired? Did a new opportunity come your way?

S: Not exactly. It took me about a year to figure out that opportunities weren't going to come my way.... I learnt that you have to create your own opportunities.

M: So that's when you started your company.

S: Yeah! I always had an interest in gardening, so I thought to myself: There must be a lot of people who also have this interest and would like to have a garden but don't have the time to set one up.

Suzanne說,原來工作的時候,總是同樣的工作來回做,did the same thing over and over again. 完全不用動大腦,失業后,她用一年的時間才發現,機會不會自己找上門來,opportunities weren't going to come my way, 還不如自己去創造機會。于是她決定自己開公司,幫助那些喜歡園藝但是沒有時間整理花園的人整理花園。

M: So now you go around making custom-designed gardens for homes and offices, right?

S: Yes! I never would've thought in a million years that my interest in gardening would turn into a career! If I hadn't gotten fired, I would've never found my calling!

M: That's cool....and it does offer me some hope. I guess I need to do some thinking about what I really want to do.

S: I'm not saying it's going to be easy.... I spent almost one year doing odd jobs and trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Not having a stable income can be difficult.

因此,Suzanne 開了一家公司,專門為公司和家庭 custom-design 量身定做花園。她說,要不是被解雇,她死也不會想到自己的愛好竟然會成為職業,in a million years 是一種夸張的說法,就是無論如何也不會的意思。正是被解雇,才讓她最終找到了自己的 calling, calling is spelled c-a-l-l-i-n-g, calling, 一個人最適合的職業。Suzanne 說,不過,這個過程也很艱難,她足足打了一年零工才走出低谷,odd jobs 是零工的意思。Mickey 聽后深受啟發。

M: Yeah....right now I have some savings so I'll be good for about six months...but if I can't find something after that it's going to start getting tough.

S: Do you have a "dream" or something you've always wanted to do?

M: Well, I have always had the idea of opening a bicycle store. I'm talking about selling rare, vintage or special custom-made bicycles.

Mickey說,自己存款有限,撐半年還行,再久就扛不住了。Suzanne 問他有沒有什么夢想。Mickey 說,他一直想開一家自行車店,專賣那些不多見,古香古色,或是訂做的自行車。他在這里用的 vintage is spelled v-i-n t-a-g-e, vintage 意思是老式的,古典的。

S: Interesting! Cycling is quite a trend these days and if you can find bicycles that no one else has....it just might work!

M: I've always been interested in bicycles and I know a lot about them. I never thought I would have a chance to open a bike store.

S: Give it some thought! This could be your calling in life!!

M: I'll think about it! Thanks, Suzanne! Now let's eat!

Suzanne 說, Mickey 想開自行車店的夢想很有意思,因為現在很流行騎車,it's quite a trend. Suzanne 覺得 Mickey 可以認真地琢磨琢磨, give it some thought 好好想想,沒準真能行。Mickey 聽了很受鼓舞,說從來沒想到,自己這輩子真能有機會開一家自行車店,實現夢想。

it's not always easy for us to turn our interests into career,but we can think about doing some related works in square time. Then we can figure out whether it can be a calling in our life.

where is my dream
作者:Rabbit
i don't think that it's too late to dream your dream even you're 40 years old.now i'm 40 years old ,two children's mother,having a dream to become a elegant woman.so i do anything i really interested ,pianting,making handcrafts and learning english as well while other women at the same age are waching TV and playing mahjong.i don't think a dream have to have the busness with the career,it's just what you really want to do and makes you feel happy.

Back at my old job there were some days where I barely used my brain at all because I just did the same thing over and over again. My research ability and creative thinking gradually lost, and so I was laid off in the end. My god! No opportunities came my way in the next two years. However, I had no much savings and had to find another job to well support my family. Not having a stable income was really difficult. hat could I do?
作者:Silkmos
It took me about half a year to figure out that opportunities were not going to come my way. I have to create my own opportunities. Then I started my own business. I always had an interest in family education and thought to myself: There must be many families who are in need of family education but the parents don't have much time or aren't professiona.
作者:Silkmos
So I am going around making custom-designed education plans for those families. I never would've thought in a million years that my interest in family education would become a career. If I hadn't gotten fired, I would've never found my calling.
作者:gengzhezhe
i want change my job ,now i don't like my job at all. I am 28 years old, i have a boy.I am afraid that i wouldn't have enough money if i lost my job .I have never found my calling,though i often have an good idea when i meet and think about something
作者:FunkyWife
Calling is an interesting word.It's like a destiny mission for everyone from the initial life.I am still on the way to find my calling, and I believe it is not far away.
