“But change must always be balanced with some degree of consistency.” — Ron D. Button
Consistency is my word for the year. I wanted to pick a word that would help me keep my focus on my goals.
Knowing that I do not always follow through has been the hardest thing for me to overcome. Through the years plans and goals have fallen through the cracks. Not for lack trying, but I have learned it has been for lack of knowing how to follow through. In the past I have given up too easily. I tend to give up the minute things don’t go the way I plan. I am now learning that quitting makes me a failure. I’m sure I knew this all along. I had to become honest with myself and completely admit that I had no clue how to go about this. Good intentions had not worked. Getting down on myself every time I failed and had to start over again, was not working.
What I love about the Master Key System is how you have these assignments you do and almost miraculously you find yourself doing the things you have to do. It seems almost effortlessly I am accomplishing the things on my list.
So, has it all been rainbows and unicorns? Absolutely not. This week was a particular trying week. Here it is Friday and I am rushing through this blog and my DMP because I have a job I have to go to. Working two jobs and having a schedule that is going to go off the charts coming next week, is really going to try my commitment.
During the webinar on Sunday, Mark said Week 4 is when people usually give up or commit 100%. I am choosing to commit 100%. I find myself thinking, I have to read my service cards, I have to read the Scrolls and the Master Keys. I remind myself throughout the day that these things need to be done. And I make it a point to find the time to make sure I accomplish them. I am not going to lie, I did fall asleep on Tuesday night and did not do the nighttime reading. In the past I would have felt like a failure and given up. But not this time.
I have become an observer. I am a work in progress and I know I have a long way to go. I will not let the old blueprint get in the way of the things I want in life. That is what doing the assignments everyday has accomplished for me. It seems like every week we add something new to the plate and I have to find a new way to add it to my to dos. When I feel like I do not have time or I might revert back to the old blueprint, I take out my Blueprint Builder and read it. Or I refer to the service cards and read the promises I want to keep at all costs. The next few weeks will be a test for me. I will have to try harder than I have before and trust that if I keep making the changes and being consistent with the Master Key System, I will succeed beyond my wildest dreams.
