life´s achievement

There are people who have simply found their profession like a call. We reckon this usually, when a job is existent for the gift that someone has. If this is not the case, we often think the person hasn´t found his/her profession yet, and the search is focused on the spectrum of existing job descriptions. Who says, however, that the personal gift has to find itself in a professional image? Maybe the gift is a quality that can be lived in many professions, so that the job itself doesn´t matter.
Suppose each person has such a gift that wants to be expressed in the work with or without job description: What is your gift, your quality?
And how would you formulate this as your potential life’s achievement?
