Week 1- Déjà vu All Over Again

We lost a great man in September with the passing of Yogi Berra. images3The legendary Yankee catcher was known not only to baseball fans, but to all who remember his funny and infamous sayings like, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over,” or “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.” I thought of Yogi at the start of this Master Key Experience. Last year I was new and found the course a real challenge. This year would be different; it would be easier.  After all, I’d read all the material and done the exercises. This year, as a guide, I am privileged to work with some incredible members who, like me, want to change their lives. I was right about this year being different, but not exactly easier as I had imagined. When the DMPs started rolling in, I was knee deep in the process and thought of Yogi.  A new challenge,   “It’s like déjà vu all over again.”
He was a funny guy.  I wonder, would Haanel agree with Berra’s, “Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical?” How better could I have expressed the importance of specificity in smart goals than saying, “You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there?” Everybody knows practice makes perfect.  “In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.”

Yogi was a great champion, but we too are heroes heeding the call; taking the journey. Armed with our DMP, the exercises, Haanel, Mandino, and making our future self our new best friend; we are optimistic and rejoice in the knowing that now, finally, our lives will change for the better; or as Yogi said, “The future ain’t what it used to be.”
Thanks Yogi
