This has been an awesome week. The time constraints of the holiday week have lifted. I seem to be “on top of things.” I don’t look at my email, or Facebook, or Twitter until I’ve done my morning rituals: Pray, read Scroll III, read my Blueprint Builder, my Definite Major Purpose, my promises, my service card, my movie card, and make my affirmations – most 25 times each, (Do it now, I can be what I will to be, I can do this, I am a talented writer, and I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.) I then read the assigned lesson in Charles Haanel’s The Masterkey System. I meditate for 15 – 20 minutes, and then I do my Qi Gong exercises.
When the above tasks are done, I write for several hours focusing on the promises I’ve made to myself in my Plan of Action. By this time, it might be near 11 A.M. and I will then open my email and focus on my social media commitments. I love keeping busy.
I also love connecting Haanel to Mandino. Haanel writes, “…the thought which we entertain brings to us certain friendships…and these in turn bring about conditions and environment, which in turn are responsible for the conditions of which we complain.” Mandino says it a bit differently. He writes in Scroll III, “I will hear not those who weep and complain for their disease is contagious.” Both of these quotes mean to me simply, “Be careful who your friends are.”
On Wednesday, I highlighted an entire page of Haanel, (sentences 30 – 35). What’s the point of highlighting if you’re going to highlight every word?
In Og Mandino’s Scroll III, we are focusing on persistence. I will never give up. Mandino writes, “Always I will take another step. If that is of no avail, I will take another, and yet another.” There’s no doubt that I am on the road to success.
