This week, my word in the Franklin Makeover is “persistence”. Wow! I’ve seen a lot of persistence. From my cat bugging me for something she wants or to get my attention to the salesman that called and called and called this week until I finally called him back! Sometimes persistence can be irritating!! But, I have seen persistence in myself as well. I persist every day in this journey with the Master Key Mastermind Alliance! I persist through the things we do on a daily basis. And, I am seeing that old self dying away!
Let me tell you about my day and why I say that this all takes time! I set my alarm clock for 6:00 every morning, but my internal alarm clock wakes me up at around 4:30 (got the subby working). I get up, do my skin care regimen, fix my coffee, then I do all the reading that I am committed to for MKMMA. I then go do my “sit” for about 15 minutes. Then, my workout for 30 minutes. It is now about 6:00. I get dressed, eat breakfast, read my email and Facebook and leave the house at 7:00, stop at Quik Trip to get my morning tea, and arrive in my parking lot at work around 7:50 – just in time to get in the office by 8:00. Whew! What a morning, but actually I look forward to it. I don’t see it as work anymore. I’m actually excited on Monday mornings to read the newest Hanaal’s reading.
You talk about the old self chipping away. There was a day that I would NEVER even think about getting up at 4:30. Are you kidding? I am doing things today that I would have never done before. I have more courage, more self-control, more kindness and definitely more persistence! I’m feeling that gold shining through! Can you see it in me, too?
