Work and Career
Is there such thing as a "calling" in life? Is there a way to combine work and service? Is it possible to find work that feels like play? Many great writers have tackled these questions, and presented their unique perspectives on them. Below we have collected resources on the topic of work and career. We will be including new resources as they are added to SpiritSite.com
Barbara Sher has made a career out of helping people to find fulfilling careers. In I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was (read an excerpt), Ms. Sher challenges us to get in touch with what really makes us happy.
How do you find the courage to start the search for a new career? How do you tap into your own best resources to discover what you want to do and what you're good at? The insightful, clear How to Find the Work You Love (read an excerpt) offers simple yet profound strategies to help you answer those questions by focusing on four key elements to be sought in any life's work: Integrity, Service, Enjoyment, and Excellence.
Deepak Chopra has written extensively about the mind and spirit as they relate to healing. In The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success (read an excerpt), he demonstrates that the same principles that can foster healing can also increase harmony in work and daily life.
