Week 3 already! Thankful that I am starting to get into a rhythm with all the assignments. I am finding easier, more efficient ways to incorporate our activities into my day. For example, saying \”DO IT NOW!\” at least 25x outloud with ENTHUSIASM…I easily complete on my drive to work in the morning and on the drive home. This week I have actually started to say \”DO IT NOW!\” much more often….going up the stairs, walking thru the hallway at work, anytime I see the word \”NOW. Also- having all my material cozy inside Og\’s book is a blessing! Thanks for the tip Mark J!
I was also grateful to feel significant empowerment this week, especially when I marked out all the \”wills\” in Scroll I of GS and in the Blueprint Builder. =) Now the passages have more energy and when I am reading them I feel more proactive and confident. I even went further, in the spirt of Thinking for Myself, on page 55 of GS, I also marked out the word \”difficult\” in the sentence..\”And how do I accomplish this difficult feat?\” Why should I assume that it is difficult? that is adding self imposed limitation. The readings are even more enjoyable. I am really starting to understand how critical word choice is and this insight directly links to revising our PPNs.
This week I rewatched Mark\’s intro video to the course as well as the intro videos to Weeks 1-3. Wise use of my time! Reviewing the videos helped me to get clear about the expectations, assignments, organization of the material, etc. Having experience with the actual material and assignments for a few weeks, things are becoming much more clear. As Og Mandino reminds us \”Any act with practice becomes easy\”. At the start of the class everything was new and we were inundated with a ton of information. I definitely felt overwhelmed and in a fog. Now things are becoming clearer. The 2 areas I am most challenged with as of now are: the Blog (need to watch videos for updating page and making it look cool=) and the SITS. The SITS are challenging for me. I was doing them in the evening at first, but I was often tired and felt like I did not have my best energy for the activity. Now I have adjusted and I am doing my SITS after lunch. I will tweak as I go and discover what works best for me. As Mark says, Press On…I will get better. Special thanks to Davene and Mark for the Hannel audios. I started listening to them this week (in addition to the reading) and it really helps to lock in the words and ideas.
PPN – What an amazing, challenging, and insightful exercise! I am still in the revision process and chipping off more cement, but I am anticipating much success as I fine tune my PPN. I am excited to be ONE with my true, authentic self and share my radiance with the world! =)
