It is 2 days away from the completion of the next step I must attain in order to stay abreast of the 2015 deadlines stated in my DMP. Normally when a deadline is looming and it seems I would not make it I would be upset, a tad angry and call myself names, not this time. I have grown in the last three months and the critical question I choose to ask myself is what one thing can I do right now to stay the course and achieve my goals?
The first thing that comes to mind is, ” I will persist and develop my skills as the mariner develops his, by learning to ride out the wrath of each storm.” This week I found comfort in those words because I know when the mariner is out at sea he cannot give up but must continue riding out the storm or he would never make it to his destination. In moving the date three months out means I am resetting the sail giving me the opportunity to learn additional skills knowing that when the time comes I will be better equipped to handle any situation.
Having made this adjustment, as I continue on this journey towards my destination, faith believing, I understand that there may be times when I would have to make even further adjustments much like the mariner who has to adjust his sails. The winds at times may be favorable and yet there are times it maybe unfavorable but in the words of the great Jim Rohn, “ The same wind blows on us all. The economic wind, the social wind, the political wind. The same wind blows on everybody. The difference in where you arrive in one year, three years, five years, the difference in arrival is not the blowing of the wind but the set of the sail.”
The Master Key Mastermind Alliance continues to give me the necessary tools for my journey. When the wind changes and it does I must always remember to thank Markj, his fabulous wife Davene, the rest of the team and the guides for putting together this course where we learn the importance of our thoughts, (thoughts can make us or break us), giving and receiving, having no opinions, gratitude just to name a few. A special thank you to Markj for heeding the call on his life to assist us in setting and resetting our sail.
