Everybody has a calling, and your real job in life, is to figure that out as soon as possible, says Oprah in our featured video series this week.

These four one-minute videos share five ways to find your purpose. It answers the question, "who were you meant to be?"

The experts advice that to find your true calling, you should ask yourself, "what would you do if fear were not a factor?" or "what would you do if you only have three months to live - how would you spend it?"

In one of the videos, the interviewee said that the two biggest reasons people fail to answer their calling are envy and people-pleasing. 

"Envy is 'I must be like you to be happy.' People-pleasing is 'I need to be liked by you to be happy.'" 

With these two things pre-occupying your time and dictating your emotions, it becomes harder to do what you were meant to do. You need to stop worrying about what others are doing or thinking, he said.

"You have to live for an audience of one."
