Signs and Guideposts for the Creative Life
And Fred Buechner states this in a slightly different way: your vocation is "the place where your deep gladness meets the world's great need."

It then often takes some failures, perhaps depressions, to kick us in the butt, make us examine our lives and what we want out of them.
