The journey continues on my Master Key Experience. We were encouraged to choose another one of Benjamin Franklin’s Makeover virtues. This week, I chose Discipline. As with the previous week where I had to be looking out for Kindnesses from others, as well as performing RAKS( random acts of kindnesses)- some without making it obvious. I again had to be looking out for signs of discipline, as well as applying discipline in my own life. It was challenging for me.

I chose Discipline to relate it more to my PPN, True Health. I am learning to not use negative words to describe my feelings/emotions on my journey. I was about to use the word, struggle in regards to what I regularly experience on my quest to true health. Exercising should be part of my daily activities, but this is the area that is often hit and miss for me. I realize that as I am getting older, it is not very easy to get down on the floor to do the exercises that build my core, such as yoga, or any exercise that is not jarring on my joints. In the training, we heard that, “Our makeover is bigger than we think…” this encourages me to constantly engage my subconscious(concentration) which will eventually grow the virtue(discipline) and abundance(achievement) on demand. MKE 17:9 adds to or confirms the discourse when it states:

” The subconscious mind may be aroused and brought into action in any direction and made to serve us for any purpose, by concentration. The practice of concentration requires the control of the physical, mental, and physical being; all modes of consciousness whether physical, mental, or physical, must be under control.”

Despite the fact that many days I feel like the boxer in the above picture, I keep going from round to round. I also need discipline in the area of my business to continuously conquer fear of the phone and applying NARC, but this is another story. MKE 14:27 tells me that “…you(I) must do so deliberately, after giving the matter careful thought and full consideration, and then you(I) must allow nothing to interfere with your(my) decision.”

I am also reminded by the Greatest Salesman that, ” I am nature’s greatest miracle.”

I always keep my Promises!

Melina, it is indeed! Just reading the words and repeating that one sentence, makes me feel so, ” I have a place in this world, and I have a purpose.”

Valarie, thank you for your post and for choosing ‘discipline’ as a focus. It requires courage because it is a word that challenges us because it calls for the breaking down of old habits that have become comfortable over the years. Like you, I haven’t exercised as much as I used to do and this morning I decided that my health is a very important factor in success.
The feeling after doing a small exercise is energizing, I remind myself to be kind to myself and take baby steps. The magic is in the consistency so I keep my goals small so that I always know that I win.

Keep going you are a star for reaching this stage in the MKE!
