Back on track after a break. Really starting to enjoy the work now. Getting pumped reading/flashing through the accomplishment and gratitude cards. I turn up the music so loudI almost have to shout and it gets real fun. These exercises make me realize no matter where I am today I have already accomplished many great things in my life and I am now realizing how grateful I am for those around me who have supported me in the past and are now supporting today.
Decisiveness has been difficult me and it seems it has gotten worse as time goes on. The homework for me this week was to notice every instance of decisiveness whether it me me or someone else. It helped me see it it real time and also how many times it occurs every day now that I am watching out for it. All of the sudden my office is cleaned and much better organized. I’m waking up earlier AND getting up out of bed almost immediately and begin my daily routine. Wait, my daily routine? That’s new. I like it.
The exercises, I don’t like to call them that but that word will do for now, are small tasks to repeat every morning, afternoon and evening to start building newer and better habits. These habits dictate that the first 30 minutes to an hour of the day and the last 30 minutes to an hour at night are to be reserved for personal growth. Masterkey leader Mark Januszewski tells us the last hour is crucial in re-programming our minds with positive and uplifting thoughts that will carry on through the night basking our subconscious mind in personal greatness. The video below with Jim Kwik builds on that and gives it a name “Personal Sovereignty” as he says we give that up if we don’t use that precious early morning time to plan out our day before we get bombarded with decisions and life. I’m taking the advice of both of these thought leaders and keeping the first and last hours of the day as “Personal Sovereign” time to start each day with a great purpose and positive direction. Mark J suggests we use that golden time in the morning to express our gratitude out loud and to relive a great moment from the previous day. I am using the last hour to reflect and to unwind to prepare my mind to rest but also reflect of the positive things in my life that I am grateful for especially reflecting on the awesome day I just had.
Have look at the video and let me know what your thoughts are about the two hours in a day that you can actually control. And will yield massive positive benefits in your life and in the lives of those around you.
This is a story about good and evil, positive and negative, love and the absence of love.
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied,
“The one you feed.”
It has been a fantastic week for me. I can’t wait until tomorrow morning so I can continue on this journey.
