Maybe I “misunderheard” when I thought someone said that after the first week of MKMMA everyone would adjust, become more organized, and start finding more time. From where I stand, week 1 went pretty smooth. Week 2, however, feels like I pulled an 80 hour work week at the sawmill (yes…that’s another story).
After attending two webinars, scheduling for the week, setting up note cards, reading 3 times a day, repeating notes out loud, moving my blog, watching tutorials, setting up additional WordPress content, looking for blue triangles (don’t ask…I can’t answer that yet), doing a revision of my Definite Major Purpose, attempting to create this post, maintaining my full-time day job, and household chores…I am exhausted! Thank God for the required task of sitting completely still for 15 minutes a day! And…I did get to spend one evening at dinner with my husband.
Well, now that I have that off my chest, I can say that I’ve noticed a difference in how much more positively I have been responding and reacting to people. I honestly believe that I am acquiring that renewed trait from the daily reading of the Blueprint Builder. In the 5th excerpt from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, it states:
I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself.
I’ve always considered myself to be a pretty decent human being but there is always room for improvement. I am beginning to listen more intently, offer more assistance, and relinquish the thought of anger when I encounter “old men who nod wisely and speak stupidly” (Mandino p53 – GSW).
Yes, I’ve been overwhelmed but I will continue to push forward.
