One of the sayings which MarkJ often quotes, during the course of his trainings, is ‘You were made first class, by first class and you’re entitled to go first class (… if we do one thing: render first class service to others)!
This MKMMA course, and its consequential journey, has caused me to ponder and reflect upon many relationships, including the significant establishment ones – you know the type I mean – parents, siblings, extended family, nearest+dearest closest friends, people of influence (both good and bad), and all the rest.
In the Scroll, marked IV, of ‘The Greatest Salesman in the World’, Og Mandino wrote:
Since the beginning of time never has there been another with my mind, my heart, my eyes, my ears, my hands, my hair, my mouth. None that came before, none that live today, and none that come tomorrow can walk and talk and move and think exactly like me.
When you consciously open yourself to the true consideration of these two sentences (or 49 words) and align them with the analogy which MarkJ compels and implores us to comprehend (refer my opening paragraph above), it all kinda wires and fires your collectively conscious thought understanding process!
And what a H-U-G-E slap on the butt W-A-K-E U-P C-A-L-L that one is!
BAM! Another correlation leading to an explosive epiphany for me this week!
What amazes me is that this MKMMA course is marrying up with and empowering my world, in its many varied kaleidoscope of interactions, in so many abstract but-actually concrete manner of manifestations !
Within me burns a flame which has been passed from generations uncounted and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better than I am, and I will. I will fan this flame of dissatisfaction and proclaim my uniqueness to the world.
And this takes me to the place that lies within. A flame purportedly fanned by previous generations, nurtured, without a doubt, personally, by my most monumental life mentor, my dearest darling Nan. And as I recall her spunk and savvy nonchalance, I also recall her dig-deep (always with dignity) spirit and personal values. This one’s for you Nan, my darling Vada : and so, in a completely enlightened understanding of my journey thus far, and the role you came to play, I say to you now: may the force be with you.
