There are plenty of people working in jobs that just aren’t the right fit. Either the work isn’t in their skill set, their coworkers are difficult, or the vision of the employer is contrary to their values.

I spent many years of my life with the belief that I had a great purpose, but only had a few hazy details. Waiting for clarity didn’t always work out, and the vision eventually faded.

“If you have a tiny twinge of passion toward anything, you have to jump right through it on your own,” Zoradi implores. “It is there that God will meet you.”
