Amazing week of still finding and showing kindness.
My word this week in the Franklin makeover is ENTHUSIASM. For me and my old blueprint thinking, people that showed so much enthusiasm were somehow not “REAL”. I have been way out of my comfort zone with this process, since when I was a child I did show a lot of enthusiasm only to be squashed like a bug and told how inappropriate and silly I looked. Well feeling like I have been let out of my cocoon I have been showing and feeling very enthusiastic this week. I have even surprised myself, on our tribe get together, I participated and was able to be enthusiastic while doing so. The feeling was so freeing now when doing my exercises I have the missing piece of the enthusiasm at a much higher level.
Changing my thoughts is changing my world. Giving our self permission to be, do and have. What a wonderful gift to give ourselves. Everyday doing the exercises leads to forming new habits. Being the observer daily we become self directed and more and more of the cement falls away to revel the golden child within.
Daily sits that invite our intuition to spend time with us, our future self to have a conversation with us. Life is great!!
Oh my goodness the weeks seem to come quickly. Spending time on a weekly basis on a virtue and scoring has a huge impact on not just awareness but also practicing the virtue.
I really enjoyed in the webinar the part about catching monkeys and how so many times we choose the banana over freedom.
This week the virtue we are focusing on is kindness. There is such a ripple effect doing this as I have seen. We do an act of kindness for someone then they pay it forward by doing an act of kindness for someone else. What a wonderful gift that can keep on giving.
Knowledge does not apply itself. I have been a great student in my life, great note taker but what I was short on was the application of what I have learned. Well with this experience that is no longer the case. The daily readings and sits all combined with the exercises allow the knowledge that we learn to be put into practice on a daily basis. What a difference this makes, very small price to pay to reap all the rewards.
It is just so amazing as we keep progressing how all the lessons and exercises are connected. I have developed such habits that I have always wanted and have been able to acquire through this MKMMA group.Actually enjoying the process of the exercises and the readings, the mental diet, having no opinions. Taking responsibility for all that I create in my life when it would have in the old blueprint easier to blame someone else or something else for my experience.
Looking forward to the makeover focusing on one virtue a week. I am applying knowledge daily. I am a choosing to let my light shine, having the courage to dare and the faith to do. Gratitude cards on a daily basis are a joy to write and flash with the other cards several times a day!
This week has been somewhat of blur as it went by so quickly. Then to add to confusion I forgot to push the publish button.
Spent several days watching the movies that were suggested to us. Watching and looking for the 4 tiny habits of persistence. I watched October Sky, Wild, A Good Lie, Cool Running’s.
Adding 3 gratitude cards daily and remembering to flash these piles as many times a day as I can. Even though it was the holiday’s I did manage to also participate with the family and friends in dinner and games as well as visiting and just hanging out.
Going back to before we started on this journey and reading that this would be a life changing experience and it is not about what you do, but what you become. The greatest gift that we can give ourselves , is to invest in us, by doing these tasks and exercises on a daily basis’s. We won’t recognize who we become, yet it is our future self that has been waiting for so long to be part of our lives.
This week has been so much more of the progression of tying everything together. With the new cards and adding in the 3 gratitude’s for each day. All of this during the holiday season so it definitely is also a test of the commitment and integrity to yourself in keeping your promises. I find that there are times that I have to stay up later or start out earlier so that I do the exercises. They are easy to do just as they are easy not to do. I am definitely reaping the rewards from doing them. Even my friends have seen changes in me from being more confident to being much more patient and relaxed, these things have improved my relationships. Living by the compass and not the clock helps to keep things in perspective for me.
Also keeping up the mental diet and opinions there is certainly much more awareness of this. Still at times having to stop what it is I am about to say realizing that it is an opinion and has not been asked for. I know in time these things are changing for me and the more I do the exercises the more I no longer keep those old habits.
Listening to my recording and adding in the mind gym to use both sides of my brain. Moved all the shapes around in the house into new spots this way subby has a new look on these and touching and filling in the shapes that are empty and saying what it is that is in those shapes. Having my dream board in the office where I see it on a daily basis and even adding new things to it.
All about putting knowledge into practice and using all the tools that we have in our belt now and the new ones that we have learned this week.
Totally looking forward to finishing the year off strong and starting the new year with a new blueprint intact.
Wow, standing in front of a mirror and saying my one sentence DMP for 50 minutes was so empowering. Doing 30 or more index cards with things that I have accomplished and finished was a very neat exercise. Knowing that the size of what i did was not what mattered it was a good flow and was finished rather quickly.
Adding the 5 senses to put myself into my dream is very powerful.
When doing my workout in the morning and listening to my DMP, I close my eyes and hear the sounds, smell the smells, taste the food, touch and see what is in my DMP.
I like the Bear hugs kettle when I have a negative thought because letting go is so much better than hanging on.
Mind Gym and the right and left side of the brain, using elbows to knee or lifting up left foot or right foot. Having fun with this!!
Reading Og and knowing that doing small actions over and over again I persist I succeed.
Haanel says that “The only way to keep from going backward is to keep going forward. Eternal vigilance is the price for success. There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential. You must have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.”
Back to have having a webinar was wonderful surprising how much I missed it not having one last week.
The 4 tiny steps that lead to the habit of Persistence.
- A definite purpose backed by a burning desire for it’s fulfillment.
2. A definite plan, expressed in continuous action.
3. A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances.
4. Friendly mastermind alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose.
Interesting as this came just as we are starting a 90 Day Blitz in our business. So these are the things that we need to do each and everyday. Just so amazing what it is that we create and the mechanism that shows up.
Having all these ways that we learn I am sure that subby is being inundated with my new pathways. Things are now becoming a habit and I am aware of linking everything together now. It really makes a difference when we make a promise and we are keeping that promise. Seeing many positive things happening in my relationships as well as in my business. Forgiveness and coming from the heart have made such difference for me.
Looking forward to week 12!!!
