Week 8 – PPPP & The Marathon



I had an amazing weekend with my wife at Chickamauga Marathon.  She is the runner, not me 🙂  As I watched her run this weekend I could see the Law of Practice in full motion.

Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance

My wife trained for 16 weeks to get ready for the race.  She had a plan and she followed it with pure diligence… and it paid off with a personal record and a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon.

She practiced and practiced and practiced, and when then time for the race came… it was a done deal.  I knew she would hit her goal.  The hard work was already done (now as she crossed the finish line I am not sure she would agree with that statement); she put out the effort and she was rewarded.

So what does this have to do with me and MKMMA.  It shows me that I have a plan with many simple exercises.  If I do the daily work, If I do the sit, If I read my index cards, If I read and listen to my books, if I listen to my self recording of my DMP, AND I add feeling and belief to the work;  it is a done deal…. the realization of my DMP is already a reality.  I just have to receive it.

I was also aware watching her run 26.2 miles that  I am also in a marathon, not  in s sprint. I am in this for the long haul, not just for the short 26 weeks this course runs (no pun intended)

So as I reflect on the marathon, this reading form Part 8 of The Master Key System also inspired me this week.

“18. The law of attraction will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions, environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual, characteristic, predominant mental attitude. Not what you think once in a while when you are in church, or have just read a good book, but your predominant mental attitude is what counts.

19. You can not entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts ten hours a day and expect to bring about beautiful, strong and harmonious conditions by ten minutes of strong, positive, creative thought.”

It is the thoughts we hold for the long run, not just in short sprints that will make up the results of the marathon of our life.   I choose to hold positive thought and greet each day with love in my heart.

As you run through you life this week, may you be blessed…

  1. Hey Scott,
    What a great blog. I was a long distance runner in high school. So I really got the feeling. Unfortunately, asthma and a back injury from a car accident caused me to drop back to 5 km runs (3.3 miles), many years ago. I miss running. After reading your blog, I am considering tying on the shoes again an run around the block to start. I love how you blend the experiences of your wife’s training with your’s in the MKMMA, truly brilliant.
    Take care, my friend.


  2. Wow! Congratulations to your wife. You must have been so proud of her; after all that hard work, focus and dedication…she did what she set out to do…she achieved her goal…that’s awesome! Great use of analogy. I like how you linked “the thoughts we hold for the long run” and compared it to the “sprints” and the marathon of life. Very fitting. Have a great week!
