Week 16 MKE: Kindness

Hello! This week for the Franklin Makeover is kindness! I’m going to jump straight into it!

Seeing kindness everyday, everywhere, was a lot easier than it was too see Courage. I had so much fun with doing my anonymous acts of kindness that I’ll keep in mind to do it every now and then! The amazing thing I noticed the most was with how good I’ve felt all week, because my mind was focused on such a positive attribute that affects EVERYONE! How has this kindness week make you feel?

Honestly Time

Now, what a week it has been for me! Something incredible has flourished in my mind last weekend that I can’t get out of my head like a song. This idea consumed me whole, it affected my sleep to be restless! It makes me want to throw my current DMP out! To even quite my job, and have this the only thing I work on forev-… Hold on, I still want to keep my current DMP though! I’ve accomplished so much! Way would I throw that away! My heart still sings my DMP’s tune! Maybe I just need to add another instrument. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What is this idea that has swept me off my feet, you ask? It’s a secret ๐Ÿคซ, though here’s what I will share: I plan to start another blog, actually I’d love it to be a vlog, but I can’t wait and I want it to look nice (which would require something more equipped for the job than my cellular device). A blog will have to suffice for now. Since I want to make it nice and right, I’ll be looking into some things first before setting it up officially.

There was someone I looked up to greatly. I didn’t know him personally, but he inspires me all the same. He was intelligent, creative, diligent. If there was a deadline the next morning, even though everyone else said the job was done, he would keep working until the last minute to perfect it! “Keep moving forward.” He’d say. He was constantly working, creating, inventing. He had no time to waste!

He passed away a few years ago on the 1st of February. That seems like the perfect date to start. ๐Ÿ˜Š

PS.

One of my green triangle accomplishments has come into fruition! WOO HOO!!! Here’s a link to to my first ever webcomic! Enjoy!

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! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I wonder what Saturday and Sunday will bring me? I’m quite certain I know the answer to this. ๐Ÿ˜ 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!

WEEK 14 MKE: Podcasts

With where I work, I get to listen to music, podcasts, or the like. This I’m very grateful for! Recently, I found a podcast called Tribe of Mentors, hosted by Tim Ferriss. He’s quite successfull from what I hear. The podcast consists of him interviewing successful people. But the questions he asks are not of the typical kind. Each episode runs about 10-30 minutes usually, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to make time for it if you’re interested. (All links will be found at the bottom).

Right off the bat, I noticed some lessons we’ve learned from MKE. After listening to a few of the episodes, it lead me to Debbie Millman who also has a podcast named Design Matters. Being that my DMP greatly involves art and Design Matters is about designers and creative people in general, I was instantly intrigued and started bouncing between the two podcasts. Something Debbie said in her interview on Tribe of Mentors has stuck with me for a few days now.

“Busy is not an excuse.”

Her explanation was if you are too busy to do something, whatever it is that is making you ‘busy’ holds more priority, is more important, over the other thing. When do you find yourself saying “I’m too busy”? What are you too busy for? Is it truly more important? Will it help you and your future? I found myself paying attention to when and why I would tell myself that I’m too busy, being the observer once again.

I’m so glad I came across these podcasts! They’ve kept me focused on my goals throughout this week. Maybe they’ll do the same for you!

Peaceโ˜ฎ๏ธ

Week 13 MKE: One Piece of a Whole

It always bothered me when the pastor at my church would say “Praise Jesus”. “Jesus” this, “Jesus” that. Like he was avoiding to say anything directly about God. The reason it bothered me was because that’s who we were there for, God. Not his son. Jesus may have had a big part in the Bible, I’m not denying his importance what so ever! But to “praise Jesus” instead of God just didn’t make sense to me. It’s like praising the invention instead of the inventor. When we all know the invention would have never existed without it’s creator! Why does it feel like we are giving Jesus all the credit?

Haanel’s part 13 of the Master Keys made me realize something that answers this question. During our sit, we we’re to think about how we are one with “The Father” (aka the Universal Mind, God, or whom/what ever you worship). In the Bible it states that we are all God’s children! And of course Jesus is as well. maybe you already see where I’m going with this! Let me break it down anyway:

  • If we are all the sons and daughters of God, that includes past, present, and future people. Than this includes Jesus! (Obviously ๐Ÿ˜œ)
  • We are all “a part of the whole”, we all are one with the Universal Mind, “‘The Father and I are one'”! Again this includes Jesus!
  • “A part must be the same in kind and quility as the whole” aka all parts of the whole are “the same in kind and quility”!
  • Jesus is a part, I am a part, you are a part!!!

In conclusion, just the same as being one with “The Father” we are one with each other and with Jesus! Now when I go to church and hear everyone praise Jesus, I know we are praising ourselves!! And that is such a beautiful thing!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! ๐ŸŽ‰

Week 12 MKE: I’m Late, I’m Late, I’m Late, For A Very Important Date

Right off the bat, I would like to apologise for being late with my blog post this week. Before I knew it, it was Saturday morning! You would think by week 12 I’d have it down pat๐Ÿ˜…. Well no reason to hold on to a mistake, right? At least I have this up now!

So let’s get to it! The 50 min 1 sentence DMP. From the master minding at the end of last weeks webbie, a lot of you struggled in the beginning for one reason or another. The biggest one was having to look ourselves in the eye. . . I honestly don’t have that problem. I think what helped was how faithful I was to the gal in the glass.

I LOVED that whole experience! I used funny voices, made exaggerated movements! I sprits some perfume on my index card, drank coffee, at my dinner (because I didn’t want it getting cold)! I even came up with a little tune to go with my one sentence!! If fact, that tune came to mind whenever I needed that law of Substitution to come in play! It was a great experience, I felt so lifted up, so confident I’m my future!

I’m positive I wasn’t not the only one! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Peace

PS

One thing I need to be more observant on is whether my blog actually posts or if it just goes into draft mode. This has happened once before and it’s a little frustrating but I won’t let that get me down. Sorry for being even extra late then I thought I was. ๐Ÿ˜…

Week 11 MKE: What Motivation?

Hello! I occasionally watch a vlog made by a guy named Burnie Burns. He is a co-founder of a website called Rooster Teeth. I admire the work he does! He only did his vlog for the year of 2017, so you could say I’m a little behind. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love when the universe sends me moments of what some might call a coincidence.ย  This particular video popped up last Saturday. It fits well with scroll 3 and last Sunday’s webbie! Feel free to skip to these times in the video:ย  4:30-6:14 and 6:54-9:37

 

“I don’t believe in motivation… I don’t think its something that actually exists, and I don’t think its something you can cultivate.” ~Burnie

Woofta, that statement is sure to shack a few minds! This statement made me realize how much I was relying on motivation. And how little that has actually helped me get my butt in gear! So I took Burnie’s tip on having a streakย  app on my phone (Steaks – Simple, Easy to use, Daily Tracker for those how might want to try it out;)ย ). I only have 2 tasks on there so far:ย  Draw for Comic and 20 Minute Meditate. I kept it to things that were realistic, and what I wanted to keep up with after MKMMA. I’m already on my 7th day ๐Ÿ˜€ that can seem like a minor thing but its similar to our service cards! You gotta celebrate even the small stuff!! Maybe I’ll put some more of the daily services on there after I get more accustomed to using the app!

“Building Motivation Instead of Relying On It!”ย 

I love this quote from Burnie. It’s like another way of saying, “I will persist until I succeed.”

Week 10 MKE:

How was the break for everyone? No webinar last Sunday… I kinda missed it! I know there was a casual one that I could’ve joined but I didn’t have that obligation to go, and after all the socializing I just wanted to rest. From now on, I will make any casual webinar my own requirement!

Without that usual webinar, I feel like I’m missing something… I’ve kept up with all the requirements and have 2 wonderful mastermind partners! So it could be that I’ve become used to the routine of a webinar every week and now it feels weird not hearing from Mark and the rest!

I can’t tell you why, but I don’t know what more to write. It’s a short blog this week.

PS. I watch a vlog every now and then and this one I wanted to share
