Week 4 – Any Act with Practice Becomes Easy

Isn’t it funny how something you can read the same thing scores of times, and suddenly one day something stands out that didn’t before?

We’ve been reading Scroll 1 in The Greatest Salesman, three times a day since we began this course nearly four weeks ago. Og Mandino says:

“Eventually, I will find myself reacting to all situations which confront me as I was commanded in the scrolls to react, and soon these actions and reactions will become easy to perform, for any act with practice becomes easy.”

Just six little words. But my, what a punch when you realize their implications!

Think about habits you have formed over the years. Any habit… good or bad… How did it become a habit? It may not have been easy to do at the beginning. Riding a bike, for instance, or driving a car. You were probably clumsy, and had to think about every move ahead of time.

My first attempts at baking my own bread were disastrous. Heavy, compact, and inedible. After a few more attempts, I really did not know what I was doing differently, but my loaves of bread were light, airy, and delicious!

Practice makes perfect, because repetition cause the subconscious mind to take over. Our conscious minds don’t have to think about that any more, and can move on to new things.

Through MKMMA, we are learning lots of ways to get important things down into the subconscious minds. Many are good habits that would be helpful to everyone we know, while others focus on our own specific needs. All of it is propelling us toward the attainment of our goals and a better life.

Imagine being able to CHOOSE your own reality. The truth is, we all DO choose, only we don’t realize we’re doing it. Aside from circumstances truly beyond our control, our lives today ARE a result of our own choosing. Even in the circumstances beyond our control, we choose how they will affect us.

Choose today, what you want your life to be like in a year’s time. Combine it with all the positive emotions you will feel when it’s a reality. Think of it as a reality NOW. Today. With the positive emotions. And it will be, before you know it.

That’s it, in a nutshell. Your subconscious will show you actions to take, and as you do them, Subby will take over, and show you further actions to take.

ANY act, with practice, becomes easy.

  1. Here’s the line that really hooked and continues to hook me every time I read it!
    “In truth the ONLY difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the difference of their habits. A habit, good, or bad, could also be called an addiction. If we make a habit (or addiction) of giving of ourselves in order to help others get something they want, then over time the Law of Giving and Receiving creates an abundance for ourselves that we could not stop even if we tried.
