There is a wealth of information and knowledge in Week 23’s Haanel.
If I were to start summarising what I garnered from these pages, I would have to write almost the whole thing out again. Suffice to say it is not only a great read, it provides in easy to understand language, the keys to success. This lesson was worth waiting for!
My Franklin Makeover word for the week was:
I’m enjoying reading the posts from MKMMAers. Wow there’s been a lot of change going on around the community. Congratulations to all who have continued on and have made significant progress in their journeys. Perhaps we’ll meet someday.
I’m imagining what it will be like to do the Master Keys again.
Feeling much gratitude.
Have a great week.
When you’re happy, life gets busy with things that you want to do, instead of doing things that you have to do.
Happy to be here.
Trust you had a great week.
My Franklin Makeover for Week 22: Self Control
Self–control, an aspect of inhibitory control, is the ability to control one’s emotions and behavior in the face of temptations and impulses. As an executive function, self–control is a cognitive process that is necessary for regulating one’s behavior in order to achieve goals. (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
Don’t you just love the inspirational information available at the click of a button? I enjoy times when I am researching a subject and come across writings by people, some people I had never heard of, and they absolutely “hit the mark”. These worldly people seem to have the ability to sum up in a few words the essence of an issue, thought or idea. I appreciate their abilities.
Today, I will be the master of my emotions. How will I accomplish this?
By many means, some that we learned only last week. We were challenged to change the way we look at things.
“When we change the way we look at things the things we look at change”.
In week 22, we were gifted with a new little tool box filled with lots of cool tools to use. With practice and a deeper understanding of these tools, we begin to skillfully craft our way through each day like talented artisans. Little by little, we feel and see the rewards of having mastered these skills. How joyous our lives have become.
This week’s Franklin Makeover: Imagination
Have a great week.
I live this day as if it is my last.
And what shall I do with this last precious day which remains in my keeping?
I have read these words (????) times during February, and each time I read this chapter, at some point during the read (not always the same point), I am moved or have an ah ha moment.
There are lots of reminders in this scroll about how best to use our time in constructive thought and activity or how lucky or fortunate we are. I’ve loved it.
I’ve written the following at the top of scroll 6 and will get to read this for another whole month:
I avoid with fury the killers of time
Procrastination I destroy with action (An area I need to work on)Doubt I bury under faith
Fear I dismember with confidence
Where there are idle mouths I listen not
Where there are idle hands I linger not
Where there are idle bodies I visit not
THE DUTIES OF TODAY I SHALL FULFILL TODAY
I always keep my promises.
My week 21 Franklin makeover word for the week was Courage. Nothing specific to relay, just that it was a great week and good things are happening. I feel that I am becoming a better listener and am more “open to receive”. I’m less rushed, not less busy, just less rushed. (That’s a very interesting observation I’ve just had of me. Thankyou.)
My week 22 Franklin makeover word is Self Control. Rather serendipitous for me that we changed to Scroll 6 this week – Today I will be master of emotions!
Have a great week!
