Week 9 – Master Key 2016: Thankful for the Ability to Control My Thoughts

Thankful and HappyAll of the conditions in our lives – both the good ones and the ones we see as roadblocks – are conditions that we ourselves have created.   This Thanksgiving, I am so grateful to understand this.

It does not matter if you like what you have created.  Deal with it by controlling your thoughts.  Personal responsibility for your conditions is actually incredibly empowering.

From one of our MKMMA instructors:  If your words about yourself were actually your wardrobe, what would you look like?!?  You cannot entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts 10 hours a day and expect to bring about beautiful strong and harmonious conditions by 10 minutes of strong, positive creative thought.  What you think about will grow.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.   It reminds us to hug our significant others, hang out with our kids, and cherish our friends and business partners.

I am so committed to creating time and financial freedom for myself and my family.  And I am successfully leveraging my network marketing business to create an amazing future.  I want more time with my family and friends.  This Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) course is helping me to make that happen.  I am so thankful.  From our readings:

Character is not a thing of chance, but it is the result of continued effort. If you are timid, vacillating, self-conscious, or if you are over-anxious or harassed by thoughts of fear or impending danger, remember that is axiomatic that “two things cannot exist in the same place at the same time.”

Exactly the same thing is true in the mental and spiritual world; so that your remedy is plainly to substitute thoughts of courage, power, self-reliance and confidence, for those of fear, lack and limitation.

The easiest and most natural way to do this is to select an affirmation which seems to fit your particular case.

The positive thought will destroy the negative as certainly as light destroys darkness, and the results will be just as effectual.

Parting thought:  Were you very busy in 2015, too busy for friends and family?  Do you think you will be less busy by 2017 or 2018 if you don’t do something different, starting right now?

Do it now.  Do it now.  I have to – and you have to – do the work with every fiber of our beings.

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’.

Week 8 – Master Key 2016: 86,400 Gifts for My Future Self

86400 secondsThe Law of Karma is fundamentally that every choice has a consequence.  We are always making decisions.  Even indecision is actually a decision.

We get 86,400 seconds every day.  We have a choice on what we do with those seconds every day.  Some of us struggle with time, but we know from this MKMMA course that the world within makes the world without.  So what could possibly be more valuable than investing time on the world within, feeding our subconscious mind a positive mental diet?   Shut off the TV and stop wasting time surfing the web with no purpose.

For example, some people think they don’t have the time nor the money to start a Network Marketing business.  Most people I show this business to get excited about it and want to join, but some don’t.  They would rather invest their money on useless luxuries bought with credit cards, or cigarettes, lottery tickets and beer instead of sending their children to college without student loans.  Most people I show this business to get excited about it and want to join, but some don’t.  They would rather invest their time in TV, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter for hours every day instead of building wealth and retiring 15 years early.

By letting garbage into your mind (TV, garbage on the Internet, etc.) some of us are wasting so much time and losing so much money.  This “screen time” is a distraction that keeps us from thinking and using our imagination.  It also takes unnecessary time away from their loved ones.  Be present.  This is the only life you get; it is not a dress rehersal.

So called “Time Management” is a bunch of crap.   Winners manage themselves by controlling their thoughts.  Losers try to manage time, which cannot be done.  We get 86,400 seconds every day.  Even Oprah, Bill Gates and President Obama only get 86,400 seconds every day.

Eliminate the “time vampires” of TV, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter and other non-productive “screen time”.  The most precious commodity is time.  To accomplish this, you much control your thoughts.

Our difficulties are largely due to confused ideas and ignorance of our own true interests.  This is an issue when people are unwilling to commit 100% to their written statement of their Definite Major Purpose (DMP).

I am living into a bright new future.  I am having fun.  I am cultivating a loving relationship with the future me, which means that I don’t want to let down the future me, which means I will take action now to enable the happiness of the future me!

What if you knew what you want and why you are doing what you are doing?

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.

Week 7 – Master Key 2016: Persistent Practice Produces Perfect Presentations

Perfect 10We are always making decisions.  Even indecision is actually a decision.  Each decision has a consequence.

We sometimes procrastinate in terms of doing things for our future self because our subconscious mind sees our future self as a stranger.   If we can get more intimacy with our future self, we won’t procrastinate when it comes time to build our future.  This is why I read and reread my written Definite Major Purpose (DMP) statement.

In our MKMMA class we have learned that our difficulties are largely due to confused ideas about our true interests.  This is why we focus on our DMP, to have less confusion and more happiness.  And when we are happier, we are much better able to meet the needs of our families.

Use The Seven Laws of the Mind.  Let’s touch on two of them today:

  • The Law of Forgiveness tells us to give up resentments.  Resentments block the flow of divine ideas.   We are creating a demand from our subconscious for the positive, for our Definite Major Purpose.  Resentments block the supply of ideas and means to manifest our DMP.
  • The Law of Substitution reminds us that whenever a negative thought surfaces, just substitute another thought that empowers you and accelerates you toward you Definite Major Purpose.

Persistent practice produces perfect presentations (the 5 P’s). The important presentation we are making is to our subconscious.  I choose to be positive.  As part of the course, we are going seven days with no negative thoughts.  No complaints.  (It is not easy at first.)

What are you afraid of?

Week 6 – Master Key 2016: All You Need Is Love

blog-Og-Mandino-bookFrom Scroll II in Og Mandino’s Book:

I will greet this day with love in my heart. For this is the greatest secret of success in all ventures. Muscle can split a shield and even destroy life but only the unseen power of love can open the hearts of men and until I master this art I will remain no more than a peddler in the market place. I will make love my greatest weapon and none on whom I call can defend against its force.

In our Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) class, we have now moved on to reading Scroll II for the month of November.  Just as I got a lot out of repeatedly reading Scroll I, I am already getting a big boost in my life from Scroll II.  For example, in my business, it doesn’t matter if I have a great and obvious way for my customers to save on electricity or mobile phone service that my potential customer is somehow unable to understand.  I simply handle it with love.

My reasoning they may counter; my speech they may distrust; my apparel they may disapprove; my face they may reject; and even my bargains may cause them suspicion; yet my love will melt all hearts liken to the sun whose rays soften the coldest clay.

I love my potential business partners, even if they don’t join my team for now, or ever.  My efforts are all about helping them achieve the better outcome that they desire.  I have freedom and autonomy in my life as I proudly provide service and create productive leaders in my organization.  I provide exceptional training materials, personal training, and hands-on assistance as I recruit and develop successful leaders who are creating their own amazing realities.

I know what the Beatles were thinking of when they said that money can’t buy me love.   The Beatles also said, “All you need is love.”

More from Scroll II:

I will greet this day with love in my heart. Henceforth will I love all mankind. From this moment all hate is let from my veins for I have not time to hate, only time to love. From this moment I take the first step required to become a man among men. With love I will increase my sales a hundred-fold and become a great salesman. If I have no other qualities I can succeed with love alone. Without it I will fail though I possess all the knowledge and skills of the world.

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’.
