Most of us go about our lives without actively thinking about what purpose we are trying to accomplish.

Key Points From This Episode:
“Life is a marathon. It's not a sprint.“
“What is servant leadership? Jesus, of course, modeled for us, leaving the throne of heaven to suffer and die for us because of love. So, I had to figure out how to do that in the context of an office situation.”
“I became somewhat like a pastor in the workplace and it's one of the things I actually ended up enjoying most. These were the people that I was directly responsible for, caring for them, and watching and seeing them learn to be successful.”
“The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth, both spiritual truth and secular truth. So, I have developed a routine early as a believer to have a quiet time and devotional time every morning and ask the Lord for wisdom. I learned to depend on that.”
“The only way to be successful in real estate is the long haul. It's not a get-rich-quick scheme. It's a build well slow strategy.”
“If I'm loving God well, if I'm seeking Him and allowing him to form my character, then out of the overflow of that relationship with Him, I will love others well. Those two commandments, if I have a legacy, it would be built on that.”
“ I know what my assignment is from the Lord. I know what it is, and I'm doing it.”
“There is no problem that I would encounter, no circumstances that will come up that He won't give me an answer as to how to meet.”
