I have a quote on my smartphone screensaver which says, “The secret to your success is in your daily habits.” I have to admit that I am not one who has practiced good habits everyday. Through the Master Keys, I am working very hard on changing that. The thing I am having the hardest time with is being conscious of my habits on a regular basis. I have to become an observer of my behavior.
In the past when I have wanted to make changes, my bad habits would creep in. Now, I have to catch myself not following through. I have to really make that effort. It has not been easy right now because I am training for a new job. It has been two months of training, with a few more weeks to go. I am having a really hard time being able to do my reading during my lunch time.or even finding the time, because I am on information overload. I have four big binders of policy and programs I have to learn. I have had to find the time after work. I am not going to lie, it has been interesting trying to find where in the day to fit it all in.
I am seeing the results from starting these new habits. I find myself encouraging our kids to visualize and meditate on what they want. One big thing I have done is create a workout room for myself. I have a big goal to lose the weight and, really commit to myself. I need to take care of me. It has been hard the last few years. My sales job was very stressful. Add that to taking care of three teenagers and, a husband, it dd not leave a lot of me time.
I truly do believe that by learning how to use the mind within I am changing my life. Every time I try to talk myself out of something, or try to have a little doubt in my ability, that little voice creeps up and says, “No way, that is the old blueprint. We threw that old blueprint away. I am living my life by the new blueprint and, I am never going back, baby!”
