MKE Week 18 – The Struggle Is Real

On the previous week, I described how I realized that I hadn’t changed my combinations and permutations for 2 weeks or more, and how it seemed that in some cases I was just going through the motions.

I started changing the combinations and that re-ignited the fun of the habits, which in turn generated more enthusiasm for the exercises.

Now on week 18, I found myself struggling with the Haanel sit. I am not having trouble doing the sit for 20-30 minutes, the trouble was focusing on the subject of the sit. The first couple of days, I just didn’t understand what I was supposed to think about during the sit.

My thoughts were on things I’ve been working on, so the sits were still very good for me, but I still wasn’t sure what I was supposed to focus on as per the lesson. The 20-30 minutes kept going between visiting with my best friend at a café, telling her about my adventure, and then mentally practicing network marketing skills.

By Wednesday, I decided to not fight it and just kept doing that. I was still reading Haanel every day and doing my 20-30 minute sit, and since I wasn’t fighting the sit, things just felt right. All that to just say, it is great to be a self-directed thinker!

I realized that the struggle during the first couple of days was with the old blueprint trying to convince me that I’m not a self-directed thinker and that I was doing the sit wrong.

I shushed my old blueprint and directed my thoughts for the sits exactly where I wanted. Chalk up another win, and removing some more concrete!
