Past Tense DMP – what does that mean?
Let’s look at the present tense DMP, it is what we want, “Definite Major Purpose”, we write our DMP on what our heart tells us what is important. (does this make sense?)
Anyway… in my DMP i have a personal pivotal need of Helping Others. Specifically I want to have plenty of cash on hand so when there is a crisis or disaster the money is readily available.
I live in Arizona, and a year or so ago there were 19 forrest fire “Smoke Jumpers” who died when a fire turned against them and in 10 minutes they were gone. There was finger pointing on why and who could have caused this or what could have been done to prevent the deaths. There was some red tape where the widowed wives were suppose to get some benefit compensation to help with bills and living expenses but it was delayed. This touched me and I made it part of my DMP.
My DMP reads “When I hear of a local disaster or crisis where families need money now, & the system is delayed, I have $100K in immediate cash to make a difference & allow some relief desperately needed. I give anonymously without recognition & seeing the immediate help puts tears in my eyes.”
Last night, a neighbor passed away, mid 50’s, she left a husband and 24 year old son. I know they made little money, he worked at a grocery store cleaning the floor, and she was a server at a local Olive Garden. As neighbors we agreed to pool some money together to help with some immediate expenses.
I want to give more but i don’t have the means yet. This event has hit me and gave me more DESIRE & EMOTION to believe and to “Do It Now!”
The Past Tense DMP, when I read my DMP and think of the Smoke Jumpers I think that has happened in the past, and want to prepare for the future. Well, I am willing but not capable to help the neighbor.
I have “Firm Demand and Earnest Desire and it will bring about Attainment” as Haanel says.
I am Great, I have the Power, and it Will Be Done!
