Law of Practice-Prefect practice prevents poor performance. Well dang I am in trouble then because not only is my practice been imperfect, I was totally out of sync for a few days. I am OK now but for a while I was totally lost. Everything felt off for me..but it was just my old blue print trying to stop the evolution of I that is occurring. I clearly had a breakthrough after fearing for my spiritual life briefly.
Everything is back in order. I realize now that every time right before I have a breakthrough, I start to feel sadness coming on and I start to feel stuck but I see now it is just my old blue print wanting to keep me safe from the unknown. It’s saying, “What is this new stuff coming in here? We play it safe, we don’t take chances.” What is this write a book stuff? We don’t share, we don’t allow people in that much! We don’t become vulnerable to the whole world! What is this?!” My new blue print is saying “Oh Yeah! We are on our way! We are going to live in our truth and help other’s do the same! We are not going to be carbon copies, we are going to be authentic and break down barriers and become the greatest version of I! Oh Yeah we are on our way!”
There is no greater feeling then to realize that my newbie is starting to present itself in many ways, blocking the old me from sabotaging the progress being made.
I now understand the mind and how perfect practice prevents poor performance. When it is fun it does not seem like practice and you can do it all day without pause or interruption but when it becomes a chore and your thinking about what you don’t want to happen, it is no longer fun to do. As an example, I remember the first day I actually picked up a basketball to shoot. I was 10 years old and had never physically played a game in my life but I had watched my brothers play and I always imagined playing with them in my mind as they played. I would watch basketball games with them, my favorite player of all time is Magic Johnson. I would imagine playing with my brothers and every time I would see myself passing to one of them leading them to the basket or shooting and they would say to me good shot! But they would never let me play with them in real life because I was too small and of course a girl. So one day I just picked up the ball and started shooting and I remember my dad saying dang you not gone miss one? I laughed and thought to myself I am just doing what I imagined. I had no idea I had just mastered something through practice in my mind. As a kid I just loved playing. It was so much fun and I always wanted to play the best person on the court and mainly it was a guy.
I was practicing and when it was time to play organized basketball in school I was unstoppable. My coach had me play every position. My position on paper was Center at 5’9 but I was taking the ball out getting back in only to get the ball back to break a press to then give it to the point guard to set up a play designed for me as the first and third options! Amazing what practice can do when it is fun.
Now that I am paying attention to everything it is amazing to realize how much power I gave up. This journey is a necessity but I have to always remember to keep it fun and so I am taking it all in. I know the payoff will be incredible. God Bless!
