Week 15 MKE: Courage

Want a Franklin Makeover? No, it’s not actually making you out to look like one of the U.S. Founding Fathers. It is in fact something Franklin came up with to become a better person then he thought himself to be (and from what I recall my history teacher back in grade school taught me about Franklin, it’s rightfully so…). The Franklin Makeover can be explained here: http://www.ushistory.org/franklin/autobiography/page38.htm

Of course, MKE has done it again! Taking a great idea and making it their own by using the Law of Attraction to our advantage! For the next 13 weeks we’ll have a virtue to concentrate on. The more we think of that virtue of that week, the more we see it in ourselves. For it’s always been inside us from the beginning! We wouldn’t see it anywhere at all if it wasn’t!!

I chose Courage to be my first virtue. In the beginning it was a tad bit difficult, because truth is… I don’t get out much. So I ended up looking towards movies and shows. And those are quite reliable since most stories hold the call to action/the heroes journey within them, and that always require the main character/s to have courage for that first step! Thinking of this… Do realize what this means?!! It means we already have shown Courage! The moment we decided to join MKE was the moment we were courageous to take that first step! To better our lives!!!!!!!! ISN’T THAT AMAZING?!!!! OF COURSE IT IS!!!!!!!!! THIS IS REASON TO CELEBRATE!!! WOOHOOOOOO!

Today (Friday, Jan. 4th), I decided to go out. I wanted to see more Courage other than at work or on a screen. And I gotta say my Friday slot is the fullest so far, some I even accomplished on my very own! 😉 I wonder what Saturday and Sunday will bring me? I’m quite certain I know the answer to this. 😁 I’m also curious and excited to see what the next 12 weeks are going to be like! I’ll keep you all up to date!

  1. Courage is all around us and it is amazing once we take the time to observe and realize an action of our own or others is actually a demonstration of courage. I too picked courage and have enjoyed seeing this virtue… Never really thought about taking this class as courage, but you are right. That was courage personified!.

  2. Haha! A makeover to look like a founding father would NOT be desirable! 😉 However, gaining more of the 13 virtues in the MKE version is definitely worth working for! Love your illustration–what a cutie!

  3. Hey Adi, first I have to ask, are you an ENFP on the Myers-Briggs? I feel you are one of my soul sisters regardless. Thanks for including a link to Ben Franklin’s approach to the virtures. I saved it in Evernote! I especially like this truth he shared: “While my care was employed in guarding against one fault, I was often surprised by another; habit took the advantage of inattention; inclination was sometimes too strong for reason.” Just like the structure MKEMMA provides us, the great Ben Franklin needed structure too to become his Future Self. And look what he accomplished!

    1. I can’t recall what my last results were for the Myers-Briggs, all I remember is that my ‘E’ and ‘I’ switch from time to time. And thank you, I very much enjoy reading your blop posts as well! 😁

  4. What a great adventure to strike out on a hunt for courage! Reminds me of the tender Lion in Wizard of Oz… hunting for the courage that was tucked inside of him, waiting to bust out and be recognized! Thank you for sharing the quest.
