Week 1 – We’re Back to Our Future!

The Unites States Constitution

It seems only yesterday I began the 2015 MKMMA pay it forward course and now I am back to audit the course a second time. The first pass was such a blessing to me in solidifying my major purpose in my life. The processes were so aligned with the way I think and know I can achieve what I set out to accomplish.

Between Haanel and Og Mandino, and the foundational principles they teach, I’ve been able to build a far more robust strategy for my life, my family and those to whom I wish to deliver value. Last year when I began these studies, I had my project management background to help with this type of planning but, to say this the next level of refinement is to do it a terrible injustice. These frameworks and mental conditioning instill a confidence and fearlessness that I had never before known and now relish as I move forward.

Mark J has a favorite sentence for Part 15 of Haanel and which he shared in our first week’s webcast. A portion of the sentence reads… ” the words out of which this temple will eventually be created are exact, that they are put together carefully, because accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success”. This has particular weight in our first week’s assignment as we start creating our life by design based on our Definite Major Purpose (DMP).

The DMP become our north star, the root objectives to which we can return and focus throughout the coming year or however long we plan to accomplish the goal. So, with that, I return to reading and re-reading my carefully crafted DMP knowing it is from this document, my own constitution if you will, combined with the guiding principles from this course that all return on efforts expended will return to me a hundredfold.

  1. Bob,

    Nice to see a friend in here. I too am returning and doing the class again as well as being guide. To support my wife and son I took the class as a new member. Long story- and delightful one at that.
    I too love the lesson 15 sentence. I live by that and have received it’s benefit in my family and life.
    I find the journey so different this time that I’ve check several times if something was changed. It was and it was ME. I am at Peace with myself and live in the present moment. I struggle with minor things and come back to Now-Here quickly.

    Joy, Peace & Light – BE – with you always; all ways.

    Robert

  2. Mr Bob,

    From student to sage!
    Your wisdom is more than most,
    Twice your age!

    As one of the 4 blog rovers this year, I look forward to devouring your variety of what all MKMMAers hunger for! And what might that be? Simply return to lines one, two, and three!

    1. Loren, thank you so much for your insights as my guide last year. Things are still looking up and getting better all the time 🙂

      1. Bob, what a wonderful bit of Intel to know you decided to continue our journey together – making this world a better place for family, friends, and even people we will never meet, as we laugh, and play, and grow!

        Your ability to detach from the outcome sets an inspiring example for all of us!!!

        1. Loren, how could I not become a permanent resident on the Isle of MKMMMA! No Way I say, I am destined to play a part at some point in the future and practice and persist I will (imagine me in a Yoda voice) Lol.
