As a result of the MKMMA Experience, I get to consciously choose. Prior to mastering the skills and principles in the course, I UNCONSCIOUSLY chose, sometimes with deleterious effects.
Haanel states in Chapter 19: “In seeking truth, we are seeking ultimate cause. We know that every human experience is an effect; then if we may ascertain the cause, and if we find that this cause is one which we can consciously control, the effect or experience will be in our control also.”
At first, when I looked at all of the undesirable effects and experiences I have in my history, this statement caused me to SCREAM.
“NO! That is NOT True! How could I be at cause of _______?
It’s not my fault that I dipped my toe into the Height Ashbury lifestyle of the 1960s. It’s not my fault that my first husband was an alcoholic ne’er-do-well. It’s not my fault that I could never seem to get that promotion! It’s not my fault that I worked for 27 years in a job I did not enjoy! It’s not my fault that my production fell”
BUT, if I am RESPONSIBLE, then I can examine my life, and my thoughts, and determine how the one lead to the other, for thought charged with feelings generates BELIEFS, and it is out of my Beliefs that my actions arise.
If I am RESPONSIBLE, then I can consciously choose my thoughts, and instead of being adrift of a raft with no rudder, I am at the helm of my Clipper Ship, swiftly sailing over life’s seas of adventure to the destination of my choosing.
I chart the course, provision the ship, man her, set sail, never lose sight of my destination, and welcome each and every thing that happens along the way, knowing that I created it in order to receive blessing and benefit from it.
If I am RESPONSIBLE, I am Destiny’s Child.
