One of the assignments this week was to watch a movie off their recommended list. I chose “Cool Runnings” and what a cool movie! It’s amazing how everything we’re learning and doing is coming together and making sense. They started off with a dream, and when that dream fell through, another one that was in a similar vein became a goal. They never gave up, in spite of all the obstacles. They believed it could be done.
The biggest take away for me was that they wanted it so bad, nothing would stop them. They also had to put in the work. It wasn’t just going to happen because they wanted it so badly. They had to fail, many times, before they got better. They put in the work. They also had to face many who thought they were crazy…a pie in the sky idea that was so out of the norm, that it could never happen. But it did! And what was so neat was that this was a true story.
So, if they can do it, why can’t I? They had a steeper hill to climb, and many more naysayers. Do I not want my dream bad enough? I know that I am my own roadblock.
I’ve been listening to Earl Nightingale as well and it’s so true about the 1 in 100 who is super wealthy. At least I’m 1 of the 5 still working (which I don’t mind at all) and not one of the poor. This course is a test. I don’t want to fail! There’s other stuff coming up in my life, and I feel like it’s pulling me down. I have to give it my all. Why is it so difficult, when it really isn’t? It’s that seesaw going back and forth. Well, this Saturday, I am going to do the Pain/Pleasure exercise and see if that works. Mark J said it would, so I believe him. I’ve been putting it off. For no reason. What the heck? I feel so ?????? I keep thinking, what if it doesn’t work? and then what if it does? This is nuts! Is this what they call procrastination? I’m almost wanting to do it now, but I want to give it my all because I want it to work. Saturday it is!
