To me just about everyone has one or many great passions that drive their whole being and give their life true meaning and goals. Some people have this but are for some reason ie: working at a job they consider boring when they have other passions they just don't take the risk to pursue. But i suppose a "calling" or passion certainly doesn't have to be a paid job. Can be being a parent also.
If you listen to Tony Robbins he says that one of the main sources of depression is people not pursuing their passions that give them great inner meaning and satisfaction.

It is almost like a religion.
The major difference is the taxable status of his assets vs His assets.
Man created God, therefore any conceivable construct - including a calling- is entirely possible once you take that leap of faith.

If it turns out you were wrong and you hate what you do, or suck at what you do after committing everything to it, you can always blame God for blowing your assignment.
