Week 13 has been a week of being persistent. The word fidelity keeps popping up in mind constantly. The holiday season is upon us all. No Webinar this weekend. Got to keep concentrating on that point of Traction in order to keep perpetuating the Law of Growth. Am I giving 100 precinct when it comes to making all the practices and exercises pay off? This is a passage from Scroll 2 in The Greatest Salesman,“Nor do I allow yesterday’s success to lull me into today’s complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure. I forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they were good or bad, and greet the new sun with confidence that this is the best day of my life” ( I eliminated the word will). I enjoyed a successful monday night’s performance with a group at a jazz club that was well liked by the people who were in attendance. What I would normally do like some folks, is savor that moment for a few days before I would re-focus my attention to other matters at hand. This time, I savored the moment and remembered the passage that I just stated a few sentences earlier in Og, and started focusing on the next day. Now that I understand that the whole is greater than the sum of its’ parts, there’s still that feeling of not experiencing everything (My networking businesses has to be jump started into an irresistible force) that I desire abundantly. To know that I have the power over everything that I desire to come into existence is HUGE. No superstitious beliefs or capricious actions are responsible for any outcome. When I give my report at the end of the day to my boss (my future self in the mirror), I want to experience a good feeling of excitement, satisfaction, and happiness when I tell him that I gave 100 precinct effort when it comes to helping him. I have the ability to be “anything I will to be”, so there should be no excuses when it comes to me being persistent. My efforts have to be such as one blow of my blade against a mighty oak. Everyday each blow might seem trifling and of no consequence, but from my childish swipes the oak eventually tumbles. AHA ; persistence. Here’s a poem that I really like:
I bargained with life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store
For Life is a just employer,…
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.
This time of the year really calls for persistence. Practice Prevents Poor Performance. The 15 minute sit is of crucial importance. Concentration and paying attention to everything, every detail is critical. “Whatsoever thing ye desire, when we pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them”. Now I know that they’re some folks out there that think that I’m suffering from the Ralph Kramden ( you remember the honeymooners? Hope I spelled it right) syndrome ( that thought is from my old self that crops up from time to time) waiting for everything to come to a screeching halt, but being persistent creates an unshakable, unflappable determination to see this new identity emerge from a thought into a new reality. ” No weapon ( thoughts, people, circumstance) formed against me shall prosper, and Love conquers all”. Love the first quote from the bible, the second is equally true. If they’re some folks that are not believers in the Spiritual, it still holds true according to a persons mental being or for those who would look at that statement from a scientific veiwpoint. That’s okay too. The point is that this is a true statement. That point of Traction that is so critical will be met with enthusiasm, knowledge of power, and using that power to achieve what my heart desires. It’s that point where hesitation disappears. Concentrating on the 7 Laws of the Mind, The 7-day mental diet are some of the keys that should be assimilated into one’s daily life so that it no longer exists as a practice but a disciple from here on thru eternity. Correct thinking and the usage of this power that I’m discovering should be used for the good in myself as well as others whom I shall be of great benefit to.
IF I PERSIST,
