The Job You Were Born For

7 Steps To Align Your Work With Your Life Mission

By Eileen Hahn

If you are not loving your job, living your mission, and feeling aligned with your current life and work, The Job You Were Born For will show you how to do that.

There are people in the world who happen to love what they do for a living—in fact, their work inspires them to get up in the morning every single day with a spring in their step and a palpable sense of purpose. Others, however, dread their day—from the moment the alarm goes off in the morning to the moment they step into their office and the onslaught of negative internal chatter begins. The disparity between these two kinds of people is unmistakable, and wide.

The Job You Were Born For is a revolutionary approach to aligning your outer purpose with your inner purpose. You no longer have to compartmentalize your work and your life mission. They can be beautifully intertwined. This book will light the way with a simple seven step roadmap to align you with your life mission. You have an opportunity to look inside yourself, to your very Being, and pull the unique essence of who you are into the world with joy and purpose. This book is not just about identifying the job you were born for, it provides tools and techniques to find that work and land that job. You too can do what you were born and designed to do—while loving every moment of it and making a positive impact in the world!
