Hello Everybody, I hope that you are all having a great week.  The virtue that I have been working on and observing this week is Persistence.  The dictionary describes persistence as:  To go on resolutely or stubbornly in spite of DIFFICULTIES.  That’s the tough one, it’s easy to persist on something of interest when the going is easy and the path is wide and brightly lit and everything is going your way and everybody is interested in what you are trying to achieve and everybody is well-wishing and there is plenty of assistance whenever you need it…REALLY???  Is life usually this generous when you are starting a project???  NOT BLOODY LIKELY!!!  LOL   But seriously folks when we start out on a project that holds quite a bit of interest or importance to us, we usually start with many great ideas and plenty of ENTHUSIASM!!!   For the most part the venture usually starts out positive and there are usually well wishers not everybody, but some and at that point we could care less of the negative opinions of others because we are on a mission and we believe that we we are on the right path to do something great.  Now you are on your way and things are going well but your research has started to dry up and you are seeking help and guidance from others and they may not be so cooperative and that once wide, brightly lit path has now become narrow and is now dimly lit and all of the opinions of the negative naysayers that you ignored at the beginning are starting to race through your mind and suddenly all of your well-wishers are not so positive any more and you start to wonder if you’re on the right path or if you’re just wasting time and resources…(I think you get the picture)…These are the difficulties and this is the time when persistence becomes key…This is when you need to dig your heels in, toughen up and just go for it no matter what.  Before I started the MKMMA I did not understand any of these principles.  I never attempted to start anything of any kind of difficulty because I just assumed that I could not do it.  When I did start any type of project, usually when  the first difficulty or obstacle appeared I was done.  I was in the habit of giving myself permission to quit without even a second thought.

Ever since I started the MKMMA Course everything has changed I have my DMP (Definite Major Purpose) when in the past I had no direction. I have replaced old habits with new good habits.  Through the Master Keys and Og and all of the activities, guidance and exercises, everything has changed in my life…Long story, short…I now know that I can manifest anything that I want in my life and instead of giving myself permission to quit, I now give myself permission to succeed.  I have given myself permission to Love and Become my future Self…I Persist and I Succeed.

I have observed persistence in others this past week I have seen it in Dogs and Cats and in other people, but if you ever want an excellent example in persistence, just watch a child.  After observing children this past week I feel that I am now an expert in persistence.  Children believe that they can do anything, that quality has not been taken from them yet.  They ask many questions (Masterminding)…They will try and try again until they complete the task at hand…When they have a request they start asking the adults, if one says no, they move on to the next and so on until they complete their mission.  It is fascinating, I could go on for hours….So if your ever in need of some persistence, just observe a child and you’ll be back on track.

It’s been a pleasure talking to you today, until next week…

I wish you Peace, Love, Happiness and Kindness…God Bless.

    Stephen I am in total agreement with you. MKMMA takes out the “in” and makes it “possible”. You are right on with your advice to watch children. Perfect example, watch a child learning how to walk. But I think they should also watch you too. You are and example to watch. You keep growing!
