Hello fellow travelers on this MKE adventure. What a week it has been. Mark J challenged us to quit.

Not what I expect from the DO IT NOW team!

I believe that I have finally understood what the MMKEA is all about. There have been moments when I wanted to quit, not because I am a quitter, but I was compelled to action. I don’t know why, but that is part of the process. Find your WHY, and then find yourself. Or is it the other way around? I think it is both, as you need to find the why and yourself and then a plan at the same time.

Here is the game changer. As Mark J said we would all quit and/or be enlightened. And enlightened I have been. I see what the concepts of the blue print builder, the index cards are part of the process, giving us a chance to make our own reality true. The great part of building your own reality is that the old version of us is remade, improved and a focused version. Sort of a rewrite of the version we have been, I like to call it Michael 2.0 (or whatever rewrite version it is). I have found the old version likes some but not all of what is changing in me, and it’s fighting back. This is where my tug of war is.

The old me used to find ways to procrastinate, delay or put off to tomorrow what should be done today. Make a big plan and find other activities to keep me busy to not deal with what is most important. Probably because I didn’t know what is most important. And just when I think everything is great, the old habits show up and work to derail my growth.

Now that I have a better idea of what I want to do, who I want to be and how I want to live my life, I can see what I can will to be. Now I can take advantage of a hidden resource that I knew but was unaware of, that makes decisions and guide me. At first, I didn’t see or know why, but being an observer has been a challenge. This is a new skill, and perhaps for the first time, a better tool to use. Not always sure what I am looking for as a trigger, but I do see what the results are after the less desired habits show up and I use the MKE skills to actively change my actions. I can now see that this tug of war is not so much of a challenge but a choice, and I have the tools to make my future the way I choose to.
