I am on a journey of discovery.  I guess you could say that I’m at the point of no return.  It’s been 18 weeks of the MKMMA course, and it’s been anything but easy for me.  I struggle with organizing my time, and reading Haanel is like reading a college textbook to me.  

This week’s reading was not any different.  I read and re-read and re-read each line, but I just don’t get it.  Until I got to 29.

29. Power depends upon consciousness of power; unless we use it, we shall lose it, and unless we are conscious of it, we cannot use it.

That stopped me dead in my tracks.  

I was born for greatness.  God has gifted me with power.  Power to lead others to service.  Power to influence lives.  Power to serve and change the course of someone’s future.  But I’m not always conscious of it.  My old blueprint tries to keep me locked up in my basement with the dragon of fear waiting to gobble me up as soon as I attempt an escape.  But walking with Haanel for 18 weeks is showing me that the dragon is really without any real power, and if I chose to, I could break free.  

Power depends upon consciousness of power;  unless we use it, we shall lose it, and unless we are conscious of it, we cannot use it.

Wow.  He got my attention.
