The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed – it is a process of elimination. ~ Elbert Hubbard
Good morning! Think about the journey you have taken on self-improvement. How many times have you succumbed to “adding” a new system, new tool, new approach, new mission statement, new goal? Consumer-culture has taught us to look externally instead of internally and that the next “tool” could be the “magic cure” for all of our woes.
Yet, when we look externally time and time again, all we do is add to the confusion of trying to decode our path. We have to wade through all the tools and systems. Today’s quote reminds me that often our answers are internal. Instead of adding on, we should focus our energies on looking within, chipping away the pieces that don’t work until we find our “core”.
We are all the sculptors of our own lives. What type of sculpture are you creating?
Daily I look within, reflecting and honing my purpose.
