Success Is In Your Daily Habits Week 2

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!”

My Master Key Experience Week 1

Why is it so hard to follow through? You know how it is, we say we are going to make changes but don’t. Every year I make resolutions and, promises to myself I just can’t seem to keep. It is the one thing that I am most frustrated with myself about. It makes me feel like a complete failure.. Yeah, I keep a couple, but the most important ones, the ones that will make the most impact in my life, I fail at. Then I spend the rest of the year beating myself up because I did not accomplish what I set out to. Been there, done that. Over and over again.

I am excited about the process I am about to embark on. I will be learning, growing and becoming the person I have searched for. I’m not going to lie, I have my doubts. Am I going to be able to make the changes I need to make in order to achieve my dreams? Am I going to be consistent and, put in the work every day? There is still a part of me that is just a little afraid. But, that is exactly what has kept me from achieving all my dreams in the past. FEAR! Everything else I have tried has failed. What I am asking of myself right now is to just give this all I have. I am willing to be open-minded to this new experience.

This week, as I have followed the assignments, I have noticed myself looking forward to doing all my readings. I enjoyed working on my DMP. I am looking forward to the process of learning about myself. Really digging deep is going to help me decide what I truly want for my life and, for my family.

I was just telling my son last night about the power of visualizing and meditating on what you want. He has a few goals he wants to achieve with his art work. I explained to him that you think about you bring about. I now have to trust in the process. Only by doing so will I no longer allow my old blueprint to control my life.
