DAY BY DAY
Have you ever read the book, The Slight Edge, by Jeff Olson? In it he demonstrates how small things can multiply exponentially when done on a daily basis.
Start with a penny, and double the amount every day. On Day 30, you will have over $5 MILLION dollars!
A single water hyacinth will reproduce and completely cover the surface of a pond by the end of 30 days.
The Master Key course starts off in Week 1 with a few short exercises to do each day. Now we are in Week 16, just halfway through the course, and a person could be totally lost and overwhelmed with the daily tasks. NOT so for the person who has been faithful all along in doing the exercises.
Every exercise is there for a purpose, designed to come at the subconscious from every possible direction and use every way thee is for helping you change your thinking so you can reach your goals. For this reason, the more diligent a person is, the easier the whole thing becomes. He doesn’t see all the bits and pieces that make up the whole. He sees it all together as one cohesive whole.
One of this week’s exercises, as part of the Franklin Makeover, is to focus on kindness. Take note of kindnesses done by others to yourself and to others. Look for ways of showing kindness to others. AND do two nice things without getting caught. Make someone else’s job easier.
As with so many of our exercises, such as the mental diet, no opinions, gratitude cards, mini-journal, and NARC, this exercise is wonderful for raising awareness of the kindness in others and where there is room for improvement in me. And reading of others’ experiences in the mastermind forum this week has been inspirational and exhilarating, as thousands of stories and comments have come in!
