Wow! Week 5 has been a huge eye opener for me. I am so grateful for this MKMMA experience. Contributing to the PIF scholarship pool (format is genius!!), I am starting to really feel part of the MKMMA movement. On multiple occasions this past year, I have paid for someone in the car behind me in the drive-thru. The feeling of paying-it-forward is so authentic and exhilarating! I love that the MKMMA course if funded via the PIF format for the scholarships. It carries with it an authentic, genuine, philanthropic culture..creating a movement that is larger than any single member. I am blessed and grateful to be a part of it.
Haanel Part 5- really resonated with me on a deep level. I found myself writing all over the margins and throughout the text. I love the concept of the mental house-cleaning and I have become aware of how important it is for me to take full responsibility of mine on a daily basis. Sentence 11 really speaks to me: \”But if we have stored away nothing but courageous thought, if we have been optimistic, positive, and have immediately thrown any kind of negative thought on the scrap pile…or mental material is now of the best kind…we can weave any kind of material we want..we know that the texture is firm, and we have no fear, no anxiety concerning the future; there is nothing to cover, there are no patches to hide\”. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Part 5 sentence 11. It gives me a concrete image, a pathway, clear instructions. And for the connection/link = our family completed major renovations on our parents house that we grew up in. We did a great job of planning, researching, being part of the process, and staying as positive as possible. The material (Hardie Board) is of the best kind and there are no patches to hide.
The mental diet and no opinions is so key for our success. I am generally a very positive person so avoiding negative thoughts is not as much of a challenge for me, however no opinions..well that\’s a different story. I enjoy helping people, but know I am aware that automatically giving my opinion may not be what the person truly needs. It is best for me to encourage them to think for themselves. Finally, Part 5 sentence 12 is key for me: \”The thing to do is to have this mental house-cleaning every day, and keep the house clean. Mental, moral and physical cleanliness are absolutely indispensable if we are to make progress of any kind.\” MIC DROP!!!! =)
