Persistence. What a powerful and complex word. That’s my weekly virtue right now.
I would have thought that by now it would come naturally to me, the 4 steps to being persistent.
- Definite Purpose
- Definite Plan and action
- Positive mind and closed to all negative thoughts
- A master mind alliance
Oh how powerful our brain and thoughts are. The subconscious mind taken over and putting me back into cruise control without even asking me permission. How dare it! It’s as if the person I intend to become has lost the key to the gate, and has to find another way around.
Yes. I know. That is my old blueprint talking. I agree, I do not need to listen to it. I can be what I will to be, and I will to be better.
It starts with Honesty however. So I’m being honest right here and now to myself and all who read this. This is hard. This is difficult. This is challenging. I suppose that’s the point though. If it were easy, then everyone would be self directed thinkers, and a better world we would be in.
In order for me to be persistent, I must first be honest with myself.
I must be honest to myself and realize that it is already Friday, the week has come and gone, and honestly, I’ve only been in the driver’s seat half the time, on cruise control the other.
I honestly believe that one day I will be in the seat ALL the time, and my cruise control will be disconnected, disengaged and not able to work any more. It will try. It will always try. One day, though.
