Week 9 – Who Do I Want To Be?

Who am I?  How did I become who I am?  Do I like who I am?  Do I live every day to its fullest with no regrets?  How do I become what I want to be?  How do I know what I want to be?  Who do I want to be?  What do I want to do …and here we are again…and again…and again.  Me, myself and I have been having the same discussion over and over and over again, all my life.  This week I have been slammed repeatedly by one of the phrase’s I’ve caught myself asking myself; it’s Einsteins definition of insanity that provokes my thoughts ~ Doing the same things over and over again and expecting a different result?  Why do I live a life of “insanity?”  Why do I keep doing the same things over and over again and think that somehow, something will change?  Wow…flashback 9 weeks!  Except now I am armed with some answers and a whole new train of thought…a whole new plan of action.  Yeah, I know, I’m kind of a slow learner.  I got to take things apart and figure out how they work.  *Flashback to taking a TV completely apart when I was like 10.*  I still haven’t figured out if this is a good trait or a bad one, but I know now that I am taking on the biggest challenge that I have ever had; taking apart me and my brain and learning about what makes me tick.  I am not content anymore living my life as I am, for now I have come to understand that I have the power to design the life that I want.  “I have lived as an onion plant.  It has not pleased me.”  Please understand that I do feel that I have been blessed by what has been bestowed upon me.  I am in full gratitude of what I have, it is just that upon learning what I have in the last 9 weeks, I want to bring my life to a whole new level.  I also understand that in order to do this, I must answer the questions at the beginning of this post, right or wrong, a decision about those questions MUST be made if I am to have a starting point.  I have ALWAYS struggled with and even ignored the “how do I know my life’s purpose” question.  Never have I committed to answer it, until today.  It has been proven that decisive people are successful, indecisive people, well let’s just say “not so much.”  😉  I commit now to start making decisions, even if they turn out to be wrong, I will see the positive in the fact that at least I finally committed to making a decision.  I will no longer let fear dictate me to not make a decision.  “Your dream is calling, your dream is calling” keeps echoing in my head after Mark J responded to my request for help and guidance.  I have started to ‘listen’ to try to hear my dream that is calling.  I would like to share something that I have learned and will be concentrating on now.  How to know my life’s purpose:

1 – Who Am I? 2 – What Do I Do?  (What is the one thing right now that I feel supremely qualified to teach other people?) 3 – Who Do I Do It For? 4 – What Do Those People Want or Need? 5 – What Did They Get Out Of It – How Did They Change or Transform As A Result Of It? Doesn’t that make things a little more simple?  *grinning* …wait, were you able to answer all 5 questions?  Nope, I couldn’t, can’t…but I do know now that I am going to get the answers to all of them.  They might not even be what I really want, but I won’t know that until I try!  I also now know the fact that since I can’t answer all 5 questions, I am going to spend some time “sitting” and “listening” to “hear” or to be guided to the answers, to “hear” my dream that is calling. I also want to share with you a video that my friend and business partner Daniel Fenton shared with me.  God bless him for once again materializing something for me that created another “aha” moment in my life.  We were taught in our lesson this week about how our brain works, about how we think and process information differently between the right side and the left side of our brain and how the ‘bridges’ connect this information together for us.  We were also informed on how we are connected to Universal Mind and to each other.  Can you imagine a brain scientist having a massive stroke and as it is happening you are able to live this, although incredibly horrifying, incredibly insightful, step by step with her?  This is a powerful, revealing, educational video that has brought me up to yet another level of understanding.  It, once again, validates that what I am a part of in the MKMMA (Master Key Master Mind Alliance) is truly one of the most incredible experiences in my life. God bless you, as he has me, and my hope is that you will reach out to me and share your feelings, journeys and educations with me, as I have with you.  I look forward to hearing from you. Believe Rip

    1. This link didn’t work for me. I noticed another link didn’t work for the video either. If I can help you with this, just let me know and I would be more than happy to. Blessings….Rip

  1. Very good, Rip and thanks for being so open about the inner turmoil. I’ve also wrestled with the inner self, and agree that the MKMMA has helped so much with awareness of our thinking, and replacing old habits with new habits. The video clips were great! Thank you again for sharing so much!

  2. Drops of liquid are literally forming in my eyes and surely they will fall down my face…this second video was amazing! I had seen the first video in my wanderings of YouTube a few weeks back, love that too…but this one just struck me in such a powerful way. Thank you…I will be Re blogging as well 🙂

  4. What a beautiful post Rip. I love your honesty. I think many have been in the ‘boat of despair’ and felt up a creek without a paddle. The MKMMA is a powerful paddle and I can not recommend it highly enough. I have seen these videos before and they had a huge impact on me too. My life changed direction completely as a result of the MKMMA last year. I walked away from my 15 year teaching position as a private woodwind tutor in a private school, to set up my own courses to help others to reconnect with their imagination through music and creative arts. It took 12 months to put the course together, and although I am in the early stages of getting things up and running now, I know in my heart that I am doing the right thing. It just feels right. When you hit the sweet spot inside you will know. I am so pleased that you have persisted and you WILL WIN. I know you will.
