MKMMA, right off the bat, WOW! No, that ‘WOW’ isn’t a good wow… talk about a bruised ego! This really is not pleasant, except, that’s exactly the point, isn’t it? To beat down that ego that’s been bullying me into doing whatever it tells me to do? When do I ever get a say in my life? I’m here to change. I am clear on how necessary it is to achieving more fulfilment in life, which I’m certainly missing right now. And I also am fully aware that it’s going to take work, ‘No Pain, No Gain!’ But I never realized how I have been responsible for every single aspect of my current situation. Sure I try to be accountable for what I do, I just didn’t know that what I’ve done was not make choices about different things as they came up, but instead what I’ve done was set a pattern of ‘how’ I make choices, and that pattern, or habit, made a huge wall that has kept me from being able to explore and enjoy the world beyond those limitations.
I love, in The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino, in ‘The Scroll Marked I’ where he really explains the power of habits. I particularly identify with the portion that says, “I have surrendered my free will to the years of accumulated habits and the past deeds of my life have already marked out a path that threatens to imprison my future.” He must’ve been thinking of me when he wrote that! I’m so glad that the remedy is provided just after that dreadful description. Only a habit can displace another habit, so it’s time to habit build and establish those good habits!
Now for the good WOW! The MKMMA is opening my eyes and my mind to what my life really looks like! In one way, it has shown me where I currently stand, with my shortcomings and imperfections, so I have my work cut out for me. But in another, and infinitely more important way, it is showing me that my life “really” looks however I want it to look! Working on the Blueprint Builder and my DMP (Definite Major Purpose), along with reading The Greatest Salesman in the World, my mind is seeing “me” in a whole new light! “Today my old skin has become as dust… today I am a new man, with a new life.”
