WHAT ARE YOU BUILDING….? Is a question to ask each day to know if you building the right structure for your life. Atimes many does not really know that whatever they do i.e attitude is like materials use to build the future structure of their life. Some live their life anyhow an expect a good structure in the future, my friend no way. Everything you are doing now and still do are materials that determine the structure of your future. HOW? Let me share a story with you
An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house-building business to live a more leisurely life with his wife and enjoy his extended family. He would miss the paycheck each week, but he wanted to retire.
The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go & asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but over time it w;as easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career.
When the carpenter finished his work, his employer came to inspect the house. Then he handed the front-door key to the carpenter and said, “This is your house… my gift to you.”
The carpenter was shocked!
What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently.
Can you now see it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then, with a shock, we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we would do it much differently.
But, you cannot go back. You are the carpenter, and every day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Someone once said, “Life is a do-it-yourself project.” Your attitude, and the choices you make today, help build the “house” you will live in tomorrow i.e the outcome of your future. Therefore, Build wisely!
watch out tomorrow for how to build the life your love?
