Since Sunday’s webinar, there’s something that has stuck in my mind. It was actually said during the Masterminding part after the webinar. I wish I could remember who asked the question, but Mark gave a profound answer that has had me thinking for the past 4 days.
So let me set the stage…the initial question had to do with finding the reading from Scroll 3 of The Greatest Salesman in the World more difficult than Scrolls 1 or 2. She was wondering why this one would seem so difficult. (BTW, the subject is persistence.) Mark said because she was highly intelligent that she was overthinking it. And that the real root of the issue was because she was fearful of becoming “big” (as in reaching her goals) that she was stuck in the minutiae of why this passage was bothering her. If she persisted, she would manifest her DMP and that scared her.
While I had watched the above clip in Week 7 and had often heard the passage before, for some reason this seemingly matter-of-fact remark hit me in the head like a 2×4.
My mother grew up in a situation where it wasn’t safe to stand out. I also learned those coping skills. I’m not blaming my mother at all; it’s what she had to do and she has always done the best she can wherever she is. But I didn’t grow up in that. I have some BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals). By repeating that old blueprint of it not being safe to shine, I’m not showing up for myself. I’m letting myself down. I’m also letting others down because of hiding what I have to offer the world.
So how do I get over this? I persist. And I win! I do the hard things. I take a step forward despite fear of what others think. I create a new blueprint where it is safe to shine and, in fact, it’s freakin’ incredible to shine!
I promise to take those steps forward each day. I promise to take those chances that bring me closer to my DMP. I promise to make the Gal in the Glass proud each night when I look in her eyes in the mirror.
And y’all know, I always keep my promises.
