Your spiritual calling is heavily influenced by enduring some kind of hardship.
Though your experiences with restriction and limitation can shape your beliefs regarding spirituality, you easily come to see sacrifice and even self-deprivation as instrumental to your spiritual awakening or fulfilling your calling.
You may need to leave your work, change careers or make a personal sacrifice in your career or one that effects your sense of security, in order to fully live up to your spiritual calling.
Removing yourself from the public, both from public scrutiny and from seeking fame and recognition, may be a key aspect that helps you fulfill your spiritual calling and focus on how you can best serve others.
Your sacrifice and spiritual routines can lead you to focus on helping others create stability and security. You may invest in helping others gain the resources they need or help others find fulfillment through work.
You can easily channel your energy from past hardships and strife into fulfilling your spiritual calling.
Although you may have experienced restrictions and challenges in the past, your struggles only fuel your sense of spiritual connection and fulfillment. You may look to tradition, dogma and to the past to make sense of hardship. In doing so, you are more likely to find fuel to perpetuate your spiritual mission.
This can make it easy for you to sacrifice what is important to you in order to be of service to others. Your views of self-sacrifice can be aligned with your views of purity through overcoming hardships.
You may find it challenging to cope with hardship and restriction in a productive way that feeds your spiritual calling.

You may experience hardships that could enhance your compassion and spiritual awakening, but at the same time you may let these hardships distract you. When you don’t lose your focus in the mundane limitations and problems in career, finance or daily life, you may come to embrace your spiritual calling on a deeper level.
At some point, you may feel that you need to go into a self-imposed exile of sorts. You may retreat from public life or make a dramatic change in your career. It may seem like you retreat into your own world or lose yourself in work.
Yet this is actually part of the process you use to regain clarity and connection with your higher calling.
As long as you’re careful to not use workaholism as an escape from your obligations and calling, focusing on work periodically or retreating from work can be a powerful way to recharge.
You may have deep insecurities about your foundation or your past.
A past hardship may be like a steady thorn in your side. Yet when you dig deeper to find ways to make peace with your past challenges and take responsibility for your spiritual quest, you’ll be able to thrive.
You may go through trial and error, going to extremes to avoid responsibility for your spiritual path at first. When you accept your mission and dedicate yourself to a path of service, though, you’ll more easily be able to act with confidence as you follow your spiritual quest.
