Focus on What Counts…

At Keller Williams, we call it the “Big Why.” In our fast food world , it’s easy to forget what really counts. Oprah eloquently points to the heart the matter in an article that was posted on the Young Entrepreneur Blog.

All the responsibilities of being a parent, pet owner, business owner make it easy to forget to “Be quiet. Part of your responsibility is to honor the quiet inside yourself so you can hear the call. Take five minutes to center yourself in the morning…set your intention every day…if you don’t have five minutes, you don’t deserve to have the life of your dreams.”

I know that I am blessed because I am doing what I love. Watching as a new home owner finds their own signs about a house; a cardinal feather in the snow to a bird watcher, the colors of their home country in the cabinetry, the perfect climbing tree, these things make my long days worth while.

Going with the stream is much easier than against it. Life finds ways of showing us where our happiness lies. “…if you do work that you love, and work that fulfills you, the rest will come.”

I hope that this article inspires you as it did me.
