This week it is explained how knowledge does not apply itself. That our actions are not governed by knowledge, but by custom, precedent and habit.
It is truly amazing to me, how often we revert to the habit or custom. I notice it in myself throughout the day. I have a thought and then make a conscious effort to change the action. I know it is because, that is the easy way out. I must change, take control and do what is not easy, or normal. Even though this is happening, I like to think, if it were not for MKMMA I would not recognize what I am doing, and not know HOW to make that change.
If I persist, I will win. I am not a quitter. The win is even sweeter if you have to work hard for it. I continue to improve myself by Learning – Thinking – Studying – Practice – these four steps repeated constantly along with “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, healthy and happy” help guide me to my destination.
I truly want to change to achieve my definite major purpose – procrastination is the monkey on my back. I must work towards removing it – courage and persistence every day and faith in myself and others – I CAN do this.
Our new exercise, the Makeover is interesting. Focusing on one virtue a week they helps us to see who we are and observing those around us. My first virtue is decisiveness, rather appropriate given my thoughts above. I must decide to do what I know is right NOT what feels safe.
