** Emil was really interested in a seemingly easy way of proving himself worthy of a promotion. The remnants of his days as pampered rich kid very likely didn't agree well with the usual career progression routes.
** Compared to her usual job, the expedition is basically a vacation with a pay to Sigrun.
** Trond from MissionControl literally got recruited at his own retirement party, and really needed something to keep him busy.

* Though the titular protagonist of ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' initially does her best to [[RefusalOfTheCall resist the call]] and obey her parents' wishes, her lifelong wanderlust and love for the ocean means she eagerly leaps headlong into adventure once it becomes clear that her people need her to go[[spoiler: and once she learns that her ancestors were in fact explorers who ALSO jumped at the call]].

However, you can also be ''too'' [[AmbitionIsEvil eager]] to jump, and end up [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope jumping off]] ''[[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope a cliff]]''. Beware shady strangers offering you everything you want. GenreSavvy bad guys, especially the [[{{Satan}} Big D]], will try to get you to [[MissedTheCall miss the real call]] by [[DealWithTheDevil jumping at theirs instead]]. They also sometimes tend to forget the baggage that comes with answering with the call, namely the fact that TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' webseries and novels, [[spoiler:Arthéon]] at some point decides that he needs a new start in life, so he decides to leave his gaming guild and become a solo player. He however quickly realizes that he has no idea what to do with the time that he formerly used up helping out his guild, so he plays this trope quite straight when he gets an e-mail that amonunts to "Hi, this is the game creator. I have a job for you if you happen to be interested.".
