I believe that vocations or callings are not unveiled through trivial things like money, power and fame.
Aside from the satisfaction of restoring people’s health, there are many advantages that this profession offers. A practicing doctor is among the highest paid workers on earth.
With such a job, I’m sure of a secure and comfortable life. I can practice this job anywhere on earth without restrictions. Under the Hippocratic Oath, all medical practitioners are mandated to dispense medical services to every persons, including terrorists and enemy forces.
Any job that guarantees the aforementioned things cannot be considered a calling.
Callings require relentless duty to humanity and they do not guarantee fame and fortune.
Vocational jobs need people to be selfless and sacrifice their resources to ensure that people are happy.
Though mine came in an unconventional way, I believe my passion to become a doctor is a calling from higher spiritual authority, so that my talents are put to good use.
