As I sit here in my dentist office at 7:00 AM I am thinking about where I am in the course. The dentist is a place we all love to hate but if we can get in the habit it’s a good thing. Of course you do need to have a good one. My fear of the dentist started when I was a small boy and had a tooth pulled. It was like a scene out of a horror story. The dentist literally put his whole hand over my face and he might as well have used pliers from a Craftsman toolkit. He later ran off with his administrative assistant. That memory has stuck in my brain all these years. Ten years ago I decided to try to change that. I still tremble but I go twice each year now.
The dentist is one bad habit I know of. Think of all the bad habits that we are not even aware of that hinder our personal progress and block us from our dreams?
As as we move through week 4 I am seeing how the Master Keys is beginning to come together. Of course there is much more to come. Our theme of quitting is appripo. So choosing to quit quitting is where I want to be. I would love to report it’s as simple as making the declaration–not. It’s a struggle every minute of the day. There are so many distractions or things that trigger our subconscious to go down our old path. We are changing years of subby training.
So my hygienist tells me that my investment in an electric toothbrush is paying off. My flossing could be better. :-). Like our MKMMA exercises they work but it’s work. And yes there are lots of distractions.
So, as with my dental journey I will not quit. This morning I was thinking that many of the tools in the dental industry are essentially the same as 50 years ago just like the themes and methods and knowledge we are learning in GS and Master Keys. Methods that are tried and true.
I will, however strike out ‘will’ from my DMP, GS scroll 1 and be proactive. I will is now — “I do it now.”
My do it now journey continues…
