So we made it to week 2.
When I started this journey, I was determined to make it through, as is still the case. For some reason I decided to start something new while also diving into the Master Key Experience. Initially I started to feel like it was a bit much with all the new things I was bringing into my life. New practices to put in place with MKE while learning the ropes of a new career. I started to think the timing was poor but shifted my thinking to embrace the challenge and push through.
One message that hit me in this weeks key thoughts section stated: The feeling of being overwhelmed is your subconscious telling you to quit…..over-rule it! This led me to start thinking about how often have I allowed this to rule in my life and prevent me from accomplishing certain things?
I want to be clear that I am grateful for the lessons learned in my life and if I could go back and do things different, I most likely wouldn’t. This is due to the fact that the smallest shift could have resulted in major differences in my life. Sure, perhaps life could have been better, but it could have also ended up much worse.
I believe I am right where I am supposed to be. I also believe that MKE has come into my life at this particular moment, because I’m ready to succeed in the program. With the lessons it will bring me, I can make the changes I need to in order to live my best life and positively impact the most amount of people.
This made me realize that I had to shift my thinking and I didn’t let the feeling of overwhelm get to me. I laid out what needed to be done each day, and just did the things that I needed to do. One big shift that has come much earlier than I expected, is the peace inside of me. This peace allows me to eliminate the concern I’ve had in the past of “Will I be able to get everything done today?”
You see, I’ve recently realized that I’m the type that constantly feels like there is never enough time in the day to finish the things I have to do……anytime an ‘interference in my schedule’ came up, you can imagine that it would lead to frustration inside of me. However, these past two weeks have resulted in a much calmer me with a determination that I will complete my daily tasks and assignments.
2 weeks in and these important little shifts have already started to make a big impact. This excites me to think about who I’m going to become after implementing this for 2 months…..and then 2 years!
Bravo Dan!! Way to be the Observer, put Overwhelm in perspective, and focus on inner peace. And like you said, you are just getting started! Cheering you on!
Way to go Dan. I agree, every time I listen to the wrong message, I not only do not gain any time, I thought I need, but more things are also added that I definitely do not need at all, and makes me want to go back to what I wanted to change in the first place. That was me before I found the MKE. Now, I work more, have more responsibilities, and am still able to take on more and more. It has made a ton of difference in my life. Keep up the great work. You are well on your way to the new and improved you.
Congratulations, Dan, on finding peace in the process.
Great two weeks Dan! It is exciting to see where we will be as we continue our journey!
Dan, as Mark says we all have greatness in us we just need to bring it out. Great that this is helping you to do that.
Kudos, Dan, for feeling less stress in Week 2 than Week 1, and for getting your Week 2 blog published on time! 🙂
