Shamanism and Going to the Gods Willingly

Most people speak of serving the Gods because they are "called" or downright "forced". If they have a "choice", choosing to disobey has worse consequences than following. In the most extreme cases, the shamans, usually suffer severely and nearly die in order to gain the power of their Patron. From most descriptions of people who describe this, they seem hesitant if not totally in opposition, until they give up and give the Gods their way.

What I don't understand is this: why do the gods only choose people who are unwilling? Or, alternatively, why wouldn't they choose someone who is honestly willing to sacrifice everything?
