Week 1 – Master Key 2016: Seeing Clearly to Throw Away the Old Blueprint

Master-Key-Book-CoverIt is Week 1 of the 2015-2016 Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) course.  I am so grateful that two of my friends and business partners are joining me in the course this year.   I got so much out of it last year that I am doing it again.  And I know that I will enjoy it even more this year.   I can’t wait to see the amazing things my partners will do as a result of the MKMMA course.

Sometimes, we all find ourselves to be “too busy” to accomplish the things that we know we need to do.  Together, we are going to dig in with this course, and defeat the old “blueprint” that can stop us from achieving our dreams if we do not control our thoughts.  This course will allow us to control out thoughts, which makes all of the difference in the world.

And, I am getting healthy just in time to participate fully in the MKMMA course.   I suffered a detached retina in my right eye about a month ago.  Thankfully, the surgery went well and I have recovered nicely.  I am so appreciative for the gift of sight.

The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel is some very potent and heady material to read.   As the week has progressed, I am beginning to immerse myself in it again.   I sometimes feel like I need to read it more than once per day.

blog-Og-Mandino-bookI have begun to again read The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Madino; it is a truly amazing book.

Quotes from Scroll 1 in Mandino’s book include: “… if I must be a slave to habit, let me be a slave to good habits.”

Another quote:  “…only a habit can subdue another habit.”

Another quote:  “…when an act becomes easy through constant repetition it becomes a pleasure to perform and if it is a pleasure to perform it is man’s nature to perform it often.”

I am also refining my Definite Major Purpose (DMP) statement.  It allows me to express my purpose, and focus on the greatest desires of my heart in 400 words or less.  I am rediscovering my “golden” self.  Watch this short Golden Buddha video to understand the metaphor:

Overall, I am feeling incredibly optimistic about my business, my family, and my future as expressed in my DMP statement.  There is work to be done in this course and in my overall life.  I feel up to the challenge.   And, as we are learning in the course, I always keep my promises!

I am elated to be a Servant Leader who knows, goes and shows the way, and because of this I am very wealthy for life.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
