Week 8 Jim Moll

The past two days have been a roller coaster ride! My euphoria and excitement were severely challenged by my subby, armed with the old blueprints. Vince Lombardi said “Fatigue makes cowards of us all”, I believe. This was not a physical fatigue; it was a mental struggle. When I tried using the Ben Franklin method of dividing a paper with a line down the center, then putting all the reasons for and against my continuing, the Old Blueprint had more entries, to my disappointment. I won’t list them; I’m certain you are familiar with many of the “reasons”, which are really excuses. Most people would likely agree with taking the easier path, for that way is the most common. Someone once said: “Successful people form the habit of doing things that unsuccessful people are unwilling to do.” Og Mandio wrote the answer: “I form good habits and become their slave…this is my will.” I promised that I would not give up, and I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES! Also, a promise made is a debt, unpaid.

By making public my thoughts and intentions, I hereby have another weapon against defeat, and I also have support from those who have CHOSEN this new pathway for self improvement. Robert Frost wrote how he chose the path less traveled, and that made all the difference. It is not a wonder why our mentors, Mark J and the fabulous Davene, have needed to take baby steps at times, had to hand hold, have had to cajole and get on the bully pulpit to get me to do what I need to do for the breakthrough which is in progress.  BELIEVE!
