A third way in which the term career is used to describe an occupation or a profession that usually involves special training or formal education, and is considered to be a person’s lifework.

"Your only purpose is to be who you are to the best of your abilities, because you are unique. You have never been this you before. You will never be this you again. This you only has one life to live. Therefore, your purpose, is to be this you in the best possible way you can. Thats it. No other mission or purpose. Now, careers and goals are your chosen methods of expressing yourself." -Bashar.
