Good morning! Today’s quote accompanied an email from Cathy Rudder of Dallas Texas. She wrote:
I coined this phrase when I first started selling real estate, and my income was 100% commission. I used this motto to overcome my fears. These words were inspired by a quote from Ben Sweetland referring to how trapeze acrobats keep their “act together” and make the triples happen – all in sync: His quote was, “Put your heart over the bar and the rest will follow.”
That was 25 years ago. For the past 10 years, I’ve owned my own firm. Cathy Rudder Real Estate www.cathyrudder.com
This quote is truly an inspiring vision for greeting each day. When we “get out of our own way” and focus on our purpose, our problems are easier to conquer. But many of us take an opposite approach to our days, we focus on the problems at hand and believe we will “get to our purpose,” once the problems are solved. We don’t realize that we have it all backward. We must focus on the purpose at hand, for our purpose is always bigger than our problems.
When we stay centered on our purpose and our vision, problems shrink instead of grow. When we put our problems before our vision, they become roadblocks. How have you been living your days? Is your primary focus problems or purpose? Try filling your day with purpose, and watch the dramatic shift it will create in your life.
I fill my days with purpose–not problems.
