” That a man can change himself, improve himself, re-create himself, control his environment, and master his own destiny is the conclusion of every mind who is wide-awake to the power of right thought in constructive action.”-
– LARSEN

As we are nearing the end of the 9 weeks of the MKE, it becomes more interactive and personal.

This week we had the opportunity to create our own Movie Poster, or Dream Board. Every key point of our DMP or DHARMA had to be represented on this dream board, including our PPNs or Personal Pivotal Needs, along with our Smart Goals(what we were going to do to accomplish our desires), and then these goals were to be assigned a Shape which was to be used consistently throughout the dream board.

The “craziest” part to the whole exercise of the dream board was the making of a total of 24 sheets of our Movie Poster(dream board.) Putting these all around the house, in the car, to be seen constantly ( I guess to keep our dreams alive), was a little disconcerting for me especially for the fact that my husband is a minimalist, and had something to say about all the papers hanging around. He understood what I was doing, but still.

We were also introduced to the compass that was included on our dream board. The poem by Dale Wimbrow, ” The Gal in the Glass”, was what caused me to really think about whose opinion was the most important. My Achilles heel over the years has been to be very concerned about what others thought about me, and put a lot of importance on that.

The verse in the poem, ” For it isn’t your Father, or Mother, or Partner for life, who judgement upon you must pass. The person whose verdict counts most in your life Is the gal staring back from the glass…”

This is so revolutionary for me because I realize I have to get a whole lot of other voices out of my head.  Wow!
