On a recent webinar Mark talked about having a little funeral for your old blueprint beliefs. I did that today.
First I wrote out, on a couple of index card, some of the old beliefs that are holding me back: procrastination, fear, doubt, and so on. I was specific – such as fear of losing my identity as a nurse if I were to retire and pursue my dream. And I was general – such as fear and doubt – so as not to miss any.
Then I went outside to our backyard fire pit with a lighter and some matches (very cold today, wasn’t sure what would light). It took a bit, but my cards did light, and as they burned to ash I said goodbye to limits and hello to the New Me.
I also read a few lines from the new Greatest Salesman Scroll:
I live this day as if it is my last. I avoid with fury the killers of time. Procrastination I destroy with action; 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. I am not a thief. I am a woman of love, and today is my last chance to prove my love and my greatness. I live this day as if it is my last. Og Mandino
I am looking forward to the new scroll, the new opportunities, the New Me. Cheers!
