So, life is not cooperating, and I am not fully back in the swing of things, but I am determined. I need to focus on the habits that will lead to my success. Which is very interesting because the next phase of the program is about becoming self-directed, focused and using the tools we have. When I first watched the webinar and was not focused. I went back over the lesson and re-watched the webinar and Mark J’s video for the week. Normally I blog about what I read in the lesson of the week. But this week I thought let’s change things up a bit.
I am blown away about what I missed. But what stuck out most to me is Mark J’s weekly video and his thoughts on fear. The gist of what he said is that fear is what cause us to avoid change. Isn’t that funny. Most of us avoid change, whether it is in our personal life or it’s in our professional life. We dislike change because of the fear of the unknown.
If you’re a network marketer, you fear the most important aspect of the work, which is making phone calls to prospects. That fear becomes exhausting and paralyzing so many people wind up failing. We often think if we eliminate fear, things will be better. In reality it’s not about eliminating fear. It is about living without fear and pushing yourself. When we try to eliminate fear that becomes our focus. What I know from the Master Key is that we focus on is what we want to manifest and create an abundance of. So, if we focus on eliminating fear we wind up with more fear. The focus then should be on persistent action towards our goals. If we persist, we will transform ourselves from a fearful victim to a fearless victor. That brings me back to the adage “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
The other day I was talking to my daughter, she started a new workout program. The workout program is strenuous and has a lot of cardio. My daughter was concerned because she has a heart condition. So, she tried the workout following the modifier and she made it all the way though it. The next day she did the strength-based workout. When I asked her about it, she said, “Well I didn’t die.” That’s my focus from now on. Trying new things and stepping out of my comfort zone will not kill me. It will only make me stronger and get me to my goals in life.
