This exercise reinforced within me that I am a smart worker. Over the years I have had many hobbies and different jobs that required a lot of steps to be done before an end result was realized. I never really thought of them as goals, just something that needed to be done if you wanted to achieve certain things. I have always tried to decide realistically on what I want, making sure to do my research so I can get it done in a timely manner, asking someone with more experience if needed. To see this set of guidelines and to know I pretty much follow these suggestions gave my self confidence a boost knowing that I am on the right track with my work habits! 🙂 I am proud of myself that I can set an idea in motion and follow through to reach the end result I had in mind!

One of the more fascinating aspects of teaching is how often students compare how I teach to other famous teachers. To receive this comparison often inspires me to wonder, ‘what is it that they need confirmed before they even ponder the lesson.’ As I watch souls wake-up to the reality that I’m simply a store-clerk who points to something you’re looking for – that’s right in front of you – I smile!

Cheryl, as you awaken to the reality that you have been, are and will be THE most powerful teacher on the planet when it comes to teaching yourself, those who follow you will beg you to wake them up as well! You’re ready for the task – as noted in your comment above . . .

I never thought of a goal as having so many steps. For some of my lifes goals I know I could have achieved them faster
if I would have followed an outline and a set of steps that I were to do daily to achieve the goal. Like becoming a black belt
was easy if you followed the steps.

Granted, following the suggestions in Exercise 19 (E19) to decide what you – yourself – will have for lunch today is just silly. Should the day arrive you decide to birth a dojo that includes feeding 100 students their daily lunch E19 may come in handy.
