The Struggle - Deborah Donaldson
decision to try

Ok…we are into week 3.  I am feeling like I am starting to get my routine down.

To be honest this week I am struggling a little bit with what to write about.  I am trying not to be too hard on my self.  I have been reading other people’s blogs and they are so insightful.This is a quote from Oprah Winfrey that really resonated with me.

Where there is no struggle there is no strength.

Oprah Winfrey

  I must be very strong!!

After typing this I did my reading for the evening and the passage that really struck was in the introduction to part three. 

Eliminate, therefore, a possible tendency to complain of conditions as they have been, or as they are, because it rests with you to change them and make them what you would like them to be.

Charles Haanel

If this is a struggle it must be because I am making it one.  My goal is to enjoy the process and know that I am growing and getting stronger.

One of the things that I have come to realize is that many courses tell you what to think.  This one is teaching me how to think and be true to myself and go after what I really want.  This process of discovering what it is that I really want and what kind of person I want to be is so important.  Twenty-Five years ago I knew what career I wanted and I went after it.  It was a lot of hard work and I accomplished my goal.  I have done it once I can do it again.

One of the other assignments this week was to cross out the word “will” in the first scroll of “The Greatest Salesman in the World.”  I did it because that was the assignment.  I really didn’t think that it was going to make that much difference.  Boy, was I surprised when I did my reading that evening.  I thought the scroll was so much more powerful.  It really is amazing how much of a difference one word can make.  I am even more motivated to develop the clarity of my DMP.
