Early Recollections for Vocation Direction and Defining One’s Calling

As individuals search for meaningful work in a world where the workplace is constantly shifting, the focus of work becomes more about personal fulfillment than security. Helping individuals find what they are vocationally called to do, and guiding them in making the personal changes necessary to reach their goals will become increasingly important for counselors of all disciplines. This research investigates one avenue to finding that information, early recollections. Early recollections are researched for validity as a theory, along with the notion of having a vocational calling as opposed to other styles of work, along with issues that can interfere with the work life task; this research as a whole is then investigated to see if early recollections can give insight into the work life task in order to find one’s vocational calling.
