Week Two ~ MKMMA 2014 …. Baby Steps

Why is it that everything tiny is so cute?

Pygmy-Possum_Amanda-McLean---Copy-(1)

This week I was struggling with all the tiny things that make up my MKMMA daily schedule. Getting an overall picture of my mornings… middle of the day and end of the day. Especially because I was away from home. Traveling, and out of my normal routine.

Replacing old habits with new. Making myself do things at a certain time of the day… every day without fail… well, I did fail a couple of times this week. And that wreaked havoc inside, knowing that failing also becomes a habit.

So, going back to the small things, Blue Rectangles and Red Dots, ticking them off and seeing the old pattern of “the way things were”, becoming a new “the way things are”.  My new MKMMA “homework”, my MKMMA sessions, my MKMMA days becoming my MKMMA world. My new inner world.

Stretching out my comfort zone into a new inner life. It comes at a price. The price of commitment. The price of dedication. The price of promises KEPT!  And the cornerstones of John R Wooden’s Pyramid of Success, Industriousness and Enthusiasm, now make more and more sense.

Industriousness ~ There is no substitute for work. Worthwhile results come from hard work and careful planning.

Enthusiasm ~ Brushes off upon those with whom you come in contact. You must truly enjoy what you are doing.

Words are made up of small letters. And these two words leave the biggest clue for me this week.

Success… everyone is seeking success. It’s why I’m undertaking a 6 month course of self-discovery. Right?  But…. what is success… truly?

Webster Online says:

SUC-CESS   noun   (Latin successus, from succedere.   First Known Use: 1537)

1. obsolete :  outcome, result
2.

a :  degree or measure of succeeding

b :  favorable or desired outcome; also :  the attainment of wealth, favor, or eminence

3.
:  one that succeeds

If anyone knows about success it has to be Maja Angelou. I like her definition better than Webster. But, what about John R Wooden? How did he define success?

Well, Mr Wooden wasn’t satisfied with Webster’s definition of success. He felt like young people deserved a healthier definition,

Success is peace of mind which is
a direct result of self-satisfaction
in knowing you made the effort to
become the best that you are
capable of becoming.”

 and then laid out for them the ingredients of success in this chart. He put Success, according to his definition, at the apex.

Index cards, shapes and colours…. these tasks are keys to a new neural pathway. Baby steps. INDUSTRIOUSNESS!!!

Baby steps that have a cumulative affect to a life with purpose, on purpose and of purpose. A whole new life within ….. a life of beauty, with authenticity. Instead of all my new tasks being seen (by me) as painful intrusions into my old life…. you know, that old “comfortable” life that sucks totally, my point of view has flipped. ENTHUSIASM!!!

I WANT THIS!!!  No matter what the price. I want my PPNs and my DMP.

So all my baby steps are beautiful…. totally…..   baby-steps-to-big-dreams

  4. Wow… I absolutely agree with how you broke down the definitions of success! And Woodin’s definition is truly one to aspire to…. To become the best that you are capable of becoming. Profound. All these little things that we are creating as our habits, will for sure bring us closer to the people we are capable of becoming. Good to hear from a second time through MKMMAer.

  12. Fantabulous comparisons of past to present to future. I really enjoyed you bringing Maja Angelou’s definition of success since she was born close to me both geographically and chronologically. I must remember “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”
