My hairdresser’s name is Phil. Phil and I have known each other for over 25 years and though he may not know it, he is a Habit Master™ extraordinaire.
Over the course of these years we have always engaged in conversations on the subject of life, life’s lessons, and our part in designing our own destiny. In fact we usually have so much to share during a visit that you would think you were listening to a talk show program or an Oprah interview.
And so it was that I had the most delightful hair appointment a few days ago. Excited to see me, Phil handed me an index card. “I discovered my life’s purpose,” he said as he handed me the card. And this is what I read:
“But here’s the thing,” Phil’s face lit up as I finished reading. “If I don’t read it every day, I tend to forget my commitment. I have to remind myself daily so I stay on track with it.”
I was totally touched as I listened to Phil. “I feel so much better when I read it and it gets me focused for the day,” he smiled. “I feel more grateful every day.”
I asked Phil if he’d like to see other people’s purpose cards and he said he’d love it. I know that I always love the thoughts and sharing that come in from all of you. And now Phil would like to see them too. So please share your purpose statements with us.
Thank you and have a great week!
