CLICK! I woke up at 2 AM. It was like someone turned on a switch, and that was it; I wasn’t going to fall back asleep anytime soon.
I knew that I had to get my Press Release composed, and posted on my blog, before the end of Thursday, October 31, 2013. It was a requirement to maintain our Master Key Master Mind Alliance scholarships. I knew that I would have plenty of time, even if I woke up at my normal time, to get it done before the deadline, but the thought of it would not leave me, so I got out of bed, and went into my office to get started.
I’m the type of person that will spend at least three hours on something like this project, and it took me five. I wrote it, read it, rewrote it, read it, rewrote it… Well, you get the picture. In addition to writing the article, I had to select the pictures that I wanted to put in the post, and that’s a whole other can of worms. It’s funny how my mind works.
One of the first things that we were asked to do for the Master Key Master Mind Alliance course was to write our Definite Major Purpose, or DMP. This is basically the things in life that we want to achieve. For example, one of the goals that I have on my DMP is to help others, including family, and anonymously help people that I don’t know.
The Press Release was to be written as if we already accomplished the things on our DMP, and we were being interviewed about how we did it, and what we did. This assignment was something that struck me as just another writing assignment, but it was POWERFUL!
I got to a certain point in my writing where I get teary eyed, and the emotions that this project drew out were very strong. During the entire process of writing, and rewriting it really felt as though the things on my DMP had already been completed. I felt joy, excitement, fulfillment, contentment, and love.
I’ve never considered writing about my goals in this manner, but it was yet another tool that Mark J had up his sleeve to change our thinking, and rewrite the old blueprint that’s been embedded in our minds for a long time now. This is hard work, it’s not a walk in the park, we’re just in week 5, and I know that there are many that will drop out before the 26 weeks is up, and I wish that wasn’t true. I do know though, that I cannot wait to see what’s else is in store for us in the upcoming 21 weeks. If this is just the beginning, I can only imagine the remarkable path that’s still ahead of us.
