The vocation is the inclination to any state, race or profession . The term comes from Latin vocatio and, for the religious, it is the inspiration with which God calls some state . That is why the concept is also used as a synonym for calling or convening.

In general, the vocation appears related to the yearnings and with what is inspiring for each subject. The vocation is supposed to agrees with pleasures, interests and aptitudes of the person.

The vocation is also considered as a process that develops throughout life, since it is built permanently . It implies discovering who I am, How am I and where do i want to go. The answers to these questions will mark the vocation and the path to be followed by the individual.

At the end of high school, each human being begins to act accordingly with his vocation. The choice of one career or of a job, for example, usually responds to the vocation. In many educational centers, they use the help of vocational counselors , who through a series of tests and talks try to make teenagers follow a path that satisfies them at the end of their compulsory studies.

However, the process of discovery The vocation itself is very complex and is not the same for all people. There are those who believe they have always known that they feel a strong bond with a certain discipline, and these contrast with people who reach half their lives and wonder what they have done and why. Vocational guidance usually fails more times than is right, since it is based on a closed recipe, which ignores the fundamental aspects of each person, and which aims to provide an answer in the shortest possible time.

In the real world, outside of tests and the euphoria of those who feel fortunate to be able to pursue a university career at the end of high school, most people express that their work does not represent their vocation, but chose that particular path because his parents practiced the same profession, or because they did not know what to study and paid attention to a vocational counselor.

Usually, who usually have clear your mission on this planet they are the artists, and that explains why the concept of vocation is so linked to art. The question is, then, why? Why does a singer who sits on a pedestrian street with his guitar and lives on the coins kindly donated by passers-by be more satisfied than an accountant who earns enough to support his partner and three children?

It is likely that the answer lies in how much each individual has deepened in their past, in their estate, in the reasons of each aspect of his personality, in order to study his needs, what makes him happy, as well as to defend himself from what threatens to bring down everything he has built. The vocation should be that which fills us, that gives each cell of our body an insurmountable sensation, an activity that while doing it makes us feel that we do not need anything else. Contrasting this with the rhythm of life that is being carried out today and with the growing tendency of people to cover up problems with noise and money, it is understood that very few have heard that called and that even fewer people have listened to him.

And this last point leads us to understand that the vocation requires a lot of work so that it does not become a waste of energy; knowing that medicine is the reason for my life is the beginning, and it will only make sense if I dedicate myself every day to study and become a more experienced and trained professional, with the tools enough to make my person really useful.
