Bestselling author and creative visionary Steven Pressfield says every person knows what their true calling is -- it may just be buried deep down inside. "There are ways, there are tricks that you can find out," he says in the above clip from this week's episode of Super Soul Sunday on OWN.

In the video, Pressfield outlines the questions you can ask yourself to help discover your purpose: "What are you more afraid of than anything in the whole world? Or what would you do if you knew you were going to die in three months? What would be the last thing that you would do? What would you do – it's the old thing that you have heard before -- if fear were not a factor or if money were not a factor?" he asks.

"So if there is a calling," Pressfield says, "That thing that you are afraid of, whatever it is -- then you sort of have to turn pro and do it."

Oprah has said many times that every person has a calling -- it's one of her core beliefs. "I do a lot of speaking around the country and I just did seven speaking engagements, seven cities in Canada this past winter and spoke specifically to that," she says. "Started every one of my gatherings saying, everybody has a calling, and your real job in life is to figure that out.

"That’s the job," Oprah says.

Oprah's full conversation with Pressfield on "Super Soul Sunday" airs Sunday, Sept. 29 at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.
