Week 3 – Old Dog, New Tricks
So, how DO you teach an old dog new tricks? Well, first the old dog has to WANT to learn the new tricks. Even if it’s not his idea to learn a new trick, you can make it very appealing to him. You have to find a way to make it a burning desire to learn the new trick and you have to really stick with it. Over and over and over again, day in and day out without missing a beat. This is SOOOO important. You can’t miss a beat! Consistency is absolutely required in training a dog (and kids…) You miss one time and you’re back to square one. Start over. Maybe you can get back to where you were fairly quickly, but, even in the best of circumstances, you have ground to make up. You’ve had a momentum break. No way around it. If you miss more than once, well, now you’ve got a problem because now it can turn into confusion. Poor old dog isn’t real sure about what you want. You were doing so well, making such great progress, and then – a miss. Ooops. Let’s get back on track… until we miss a second time.
“That much gathers more is true on every plane of existence and that loss leads to greater loss is equally true.” (MKE Part One, Sentence One) “I will lose not a day from these readings for that day cannot be retrieved nor can I substitute another for it.” (The Scroll Marked 1)
I made the blog comment in Week 1 that this is not my first exposure to either The Greatest Salesman in the World or Think and Grow Rich. I have read them both more than once. But, I never followed the recipe with discipline. I’ve never had the structure imposed on me (nor the discipline to self-impose) to be committed and accountable to actually do it day in and day out without missing a beat. HELLO!
I must admit, there has crept in a doubt here and there. A question along the way of “is this just silly…?” However, I must also admit, just 18 days in I can see that it truly is seeping into my “other mind;” that mysterious source which never sleeps.
I may be an old dog but I still have a burning desire and a HUGE purpose.
I have kept at it 100%. I have missed not a day of these readings. And I won’t.
