Why don't we all get "The Call"...or do we?

Mother Teresa answered her call.

Her actions continue to make a difference every day, and throughout the world.

And though I've yet to read it, and Mother Teresa never wanted anything written that glorified her life, apparently a wonderful account that respects her wishes can be found in Something Beautiful for God by Malcolm Muggeridge.

But back to the original question, do we all get some sort of a "life's calling," and what's the loss if we don't pick up the phone?

At the end of the day, why is it so hard for some of us to admit we might, too, have some mission that even requires a call?
