Week 17 I Give Myself Permision?
Ok here we are again. Week 17-1/2, and into the third week of the Franklin Makeover. Not sure what was wrong with the first Franklin that needs a makeover but what the heck.
We have 13 virtues we are to focus on each week. Not all at once mind you but one each week for the next 13 weeks, which takes us to the end of our MKMMA coarse. We had to pick two out of eleven as two have already been slotted in for us. These two had to be the one we need to work on the most and also the one we needed the least amount of work. The rest we were to fill in the blanks in no special order. Don’t dwell on it they said. Ok how many of us took more than a couple of minutes to fill it in? Took me 15min. DAH!
The second week was filled in for us with Kindness. (See week 16 for my Kindness report) The last one, week 13 is filled in with, See God or (Good) in Others. Whichever floats your boat. So I doubled my score in week two and now wonder how week three will fare out. We are to look and observe these virtues in others or even animals. Even if we see them on tv, radio etc. Ok let me know if you see any on the radio will yah? If we can see them then they are already in us. Those we have trouble seeing we in turn then know what ones we need to work on. As the MKMMA Team put it. R2A2, Recognize, Relate, Assimilate and Apply. Identity – Magnify – Multiply. Awareness is the beginning of change.
Here is what my Makeover spreadsheet is like.
Wk1 Well Organized Wk2 Kindness Wk3 Decisive Wk4 Taking Initiative Wk5 Enthusiasm Wk6 Persistence Wk7 Specialized Knowledge Wk8 Courage Wk9 Self Control Wk10 Pleasing Personality Wk11 Imagination Wk12 Discipline Wk13 See God in Others
As we started this week we added another affirmation, thus giving ourselves permission. So I promise to Give Myself Permission to be happy And Powerful to Grow
I am not sure but I seem to be finding this stretch oh how should I put it. Boring! Hum Drum! Getting to be too much of a “I get it now, how many times do I have to keep doing this?” Yeah I know! The Pay Off is Big. So after looking at my list I am thinking in order to pull through this last half of the coarse I need to give myself permission to do all virtues at once. Now how will that go? Lets see:
“I Promise to Give Myself Permission To Decide to Take Initiative with Enthusiasm and Persistence using the Special MKMMA Knowledge and Courage to maintain Self Control with a Pleasing Personality in giving all of my Imagination to the Discipline thus letting me See God and or Good in Others”
Breath Dan Breath! Man that was a mouth full was’t it? Should I have added a coma or two?
Now with all this in mind one must remember everything else we are to keep up on. All our readings. The DMP,POA,Service Cards. Emerson, Greatest Secrete, Press Release, Blueprint builder and the World’s Greatest Salesman. Of coarse for us smart ones we have most if not all of this on tape,cd etc. right? Oh and lets not forget our 15 plus minute sit after reading the Master Key for the week. How am I doing? Thank God a lot of this is Honour Requirements. There has been the odd night I turned in without completing everything. Dam! I forgot we also have been writing down 3 things we are grateful for each day along with having written about 50-100 things we have accomplished in our life. Like learning to ride a bike or to swim. We added to this our DMP Smart goals. Another 12 cards. We are to flash this cards daily to keep Subby happy. Most of this we are to do 3x daily. Sounds like having to swallow cod liver oil. Yum! Don’t get me wrong , this is all fun and no one put a gun to my head.
54 some odd days back I saw a video of Mark’s about writing 3 gratitudes per day for 90 days. No repeats allowed. Cool! I thought. So I started. Little did I know 20 plus days later we where going to be doing this. I have 2 baseball mitts full of flipping cards! I had not been faithful to this exercise. However, as we are not to repeat any I have this little note book I started this with. So in order to not repeat I end up flipping through the book to make sure I am good. Hey! Guess What! I have been doing this excise all along!
Well with the gratitudes anyways. Maybe I should Decide to create a small pile for all the accomplishments and smart goals. Oh also in this pile (my mind is failing. It’s late and I need more chocolate) is cards pertaining to 2-3 sentence stating a pleasant experience that we experience each day. I’m a couple of days behind here to. How does one fit in a life around this?So as you can see being Well Organized isn’t my best side, I forgot to add my first 2 virtues into my I promise campaign. Once again I manage to find something to torture your ears with. In Kindness I wish to leave you with a little something to take with you on the rest of this Hero’s Journey. Enjoy. Peace.
Use at Will!
