Are you being called?
Jesus told His disciples," I came to serve, not to be served". A vocation is a call to serve. It is a profession, an urge, and a predisposition to undertake a certain type of work. It is a choice for which you are personally suited. The central question always is:" How best can I serve my God and others?" If you feel a calling to the married life, there are many Church ministries from which to choose. Many are in need of your service, as a Deacon, a Eucharistic Minister, a visitor to the sick and aged, or an usher. Whatever you choose, do something that serves others.
If you feel a calling to the priesthood or religious life, ask questions and talk to priests or religious. They can help you to know your vocation or career, or even your own true self. Above all, start with prayer. Whatever your vocation, if you are good at what you do, it is a gift from God. Only through prayer will you be able to recognize what vocation gift He wants to give you.
Books on vocations can be checked out at the church library. A listing of vocational books can be found HERE.
