MKE – Week 3 (Year 2) – Smile :)
WOO HOO!! I am starting this day, with a smile, and a BIG shout of excitement!! This is my second year doing this, and one of challenges has been writing my DMP in present tense. The ground shook and opened up for me this week!! The light bulb has gone off!! As I was reading OG Mandino, it dawned on me as I was reading without the word, ‘will,’ that this is how I am suppose to be writing my DMP for my subby to get it!! Let’s look at a paragraph. Page 57 in OG, last paragraph. “As I read and re-read the words in the scrolls to follow, never will I allow the brevity of each scroll nor the simplicity of its words to cause me to treat the scroll’s message lightly. Thousands of grapes are pressed to fill one jar with wine, and the grapeskin and pulp are tossed to the birds. So it is with these grapes of wisdom from the ages. Much has been filtered and tossed to the wind. Only pure truth lies distilled in the words to come. I will drink as instructed and spill not a drop. And the seed of success I will swallow. Today my OLD skin has become as dust. I will walk tall among men and they will know me not, for TODAY I am a new man, with a NEW LIFE. Now, re-read that and take out the will’s. I feel that I have tossed my OLD self aside, and made space for the NEW me!! This is why I celebrate today with a BIG smile!!
There was a couple of things that stood out to me in Haanel, page 41:20; We learn by doing; through practice the athlete (us) comes POWERFUL! Also, page 41:22; Mentally concentrate on the object of your desire (DMP); when you are concentrating, you are impressing the subconscious!
If you are struggling, keep pressing. If it doesn’t make sense today, be patient and kind to yourself. The day will come, when the dots will connect and it makes sense!! You’ve got this!!
I leave you with a song by the group, Sidewalk Prophets, and their song, Smile. 🙂 Click on the link below. (There is a small intro, be patient for the song) It’s worth it.
Peace be your journey!!
