Aloha! Another week on this program, and my excitement has not waned. In fact this week I was more actively involved in the exercises given by my team to accomplish, and my feeling of accomplishment continues to grow. The accountability offered is not like a big stick held over my head, instead it comes from the encouragement that, ” you can do it!” I really feel like I can do it.
Training last Sunday required us to create a chore card. On this card we only listed one chore we were to complete. This sounds easy, right? For me, the hardest part was to focus on this one chore, and not multi-task like I always do. In the past, I would be doing several activities at the same time, and then realize that I had many unfinished tasks, which in return would make me feel like a failure, and “unfinished.” Ever had that feeling? I would then sit in front of my TV in an attempt to de-stress. We wrote this chore on a card and a blue rectangle box was placed beside the chore. We were encouraged to look out for blue rectangle boxes throughout the week. This was to remind us of the chore we were to complete. I became more aware of my surroundings this past week as I constantly looked for blue, rectangle boxes. Most of the ones I saw were on signs along the road.
Another activity we were instructed to do was think about two main PPNs( Personal Pivotal Needs), which according to our trainer is, “oxygen for the soul, and they lift us up.. we embed them in our subconscious.. it is of purpose” and then our/my Definite Major Purpose(DMP) becomes authentic. Putting it all together, I am really understanding the power of our subconscious mind, and how much I/we need to send positive thoughts, feelings and desires to it. My two PPNs were, ‘legacy’, and ‘spiritual growth’. After choosing these I was unsure if these were really what I wanted for my “supply-demand blueprint.” I kept them because they are really very important to me, and if I am to build a legacy, and grow spiritually, my money goals, anxieties and fears etc. fall under these.
In a nutshell, mindfully thinking more positive thoughts, and celebrating small victories such as completing my chore are really helping me to feel more self confident, and preventing me from going into my headspace and pulling out the, “you did not complete what you said you would, therefore you are a failure.”
The mantra that motivates me and the others on my team is, ” I always keep my Promises!” The more I say it, the more I do not want to disappoint myself. This is the real deal guys, it is working and I am genuinely feeling stoked and ready for more. Mahalo, and see you soon.
