Good Morning: Be the Sculptor of Your Own Life

“The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such
parts of the marble block as are not needed – it is a process of
~Elbert Hubbard
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”.
Your Turn:
We are all the sculptors of our own lives. What type of sculpture
are you creating?
Your affirmation:
Daily I look within, reflecting and honing my purpose.

And as always, don’t forget to start your day with a heartfelt: “Something great is going to happen today… I can’t wait to see what it is!”

And when ending your day ask yourself:
“What is one more thing I can do to make today matter?”
