Week 14 – Master Key 2018: Some Gifts Mean More Than Others

Family - Dec 2017Merry Christmas!   Happy Hanukkah!  Happy Kwanzaa!  Happy New Year!

This will be the last Christmas that I will be taller than my son.

This will be the last Christmas before my wife gets a wonderful hero — a living kidney donor.

As I begin 2018, the greatest lap around the sun of my entire life (so far), I carry no resentments from the past.  I have learned from my past, but the past will not hinder me.  I forgive everyone.  I ask for forgiveness from all.

I am the architect of my future self and the future reality for me and my family, and that wonderful future is pulling me forward into action.

I am reminded of the some of the words of Og Mandino in The Greatest Salesman in the World:

Thus a new and good habit is born, for 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. When I perform it often it becomes a habit and I become its slave and since it is a good habit this is my will.

What habits enable me to build a huge money-making team?   First, I set appointments daily by making calls and/or having conversations using skilled words I have learned from my mentor.  Secondly, I show the short company business plan video during those appointments.  Finally, I just collect a decision (Customer or Associate, it is their choice).   All I do is repeat those three steps.  It is simple.  Like a basketball player with a nearly unlimited daily supply of balls and no shot clock, I just keep shooting, with persistence.   And my shooting percentage increases monthly, which makes it a joy to take even more shots.

The more people I talk to, the more money I make.

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 13 – Master Key 2018: Would it Be OK if 2018 Was Better for You than 2017?

TS_08172016_0518_colorAs we enter 2018, remember that it actually takes far less energy to succeed than it does to fail.

W. Clement Stone taught, “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.” Everyone wants to grow their business, but sometimes they neglect the main traction point of the business. For example, in networking marketing, we need to talk to people. That is the traction point.   And we want to do this in a skillful way that leaves the people asking us for more information as opposed to us pushing it on them.   If we don’t talk to people (the traction point) and we keep our business a secret, we won’t be able to help those people make money for themselves, and we won’t grow our own money-making teams.

In our Master Key Mastermind Alliance (MKMMA) class, we talked about that fact that it is really as simple as asking ourselves…..what am I going to do today to advance my business at the traction point?

Law of Growth:  Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

And I found out through our MKMMA class about an amazing concept called Neurological Associative Reactive Conditioning (NARC).  Animals can’t do it, but humans can.  We can associate both positive and negative feeling to anything.  It is our choice.  Think of food (feasting vs. fasting can both be good) as one example where we can apply NARC.   Think of sex (loving sex vs. abstinence can both be good) as another example where we can apply NARC.

Law of Dual Thought:   Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

We can use this to our advantage to talk to people on a daily basis.   I choose to be happy and excited about talking to people.   I have the privilege of making what I now call “Million Dollar Presentations” every day.   After all, with my help and my expert mentoring, the next great person I talk to could be a super star leader in my business.  He or she could enable geometric growth for life for themselves, and for me also.  I choose to think of my phone as an ATM Machine for my business.  It is all about the idea that I individually choose to attach to the action.

Only humans can do something like this:  Attach pain to NOT talking to people about your business, and tossing our dreams in the trash if we choose that path.  Attach pleasure to making calls and accelerating the life we have imagined.  You must attach feeling on both sides for NARC to be truly effective.

I ecstatically make “Million Dollar Presentations” every day!

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 12 – Master Key 2018: You Can Be What You Will To Be

Thomas and John Maxwell - Color - Aug 2016Would it be OK if your 2018 was better than your 2017?

Would it be OK if I showed you how?

You can be what you will to be, thanks to the Seven Laws of the Mind:

Law of Substitution:  We cannot think about two things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind, try to think about any positive thing or any fond memory.  

My comment:  Whenever I get a negative thought or have negative self-talk, I switch to saying this statement which gets me in a positive mindset and refocused on my business, “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.”

Law of Relaxation:  Mental effort defeats itself ~ exactly the opposite of physical effort. A relaxed, calm state of mind is the only doorway to progress mentally. Relaxation of thought is the only access to Infinite Intelligence.  

My comment:  Doing my meditative “sit” for 15 minutes a day.  Controlling my thoughts.   Progress is happening for me.

Law of Practice:   Practice makes perfect.  The 5Ps – Persistent Practice Produces Perfect Performance.

My comment:  We all know the importance of practice for anything that really matters.   Often, we just don’t do it because we have this (fake) ‘story’ that we are too busy.  Here’s a mantra that you can use now and in the new year:  “Do it now!”

Law of Forgiveness:  To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists.

My comment:  Just let it go.   Who are you carrying that baggage for, anyway?   Please don’t carry any resentment or baggage into the new year.   Leave the past in the past if you want to create a new future.

Law of Dual Thought:   Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

My comment:  For example, if you got a disappointing raise this year with your end-of-year performance review, you can simply use that as a reminder that your long-term priority is to build your own independent business.  After all, you may have already decided that by the end of next year your passive monthly income from your own business will enable you to leave your day job, anyway.   Now, it is a positive motivation for your long term future!  Another example might be when you attach love to the idea of helping others; you welcome obstacles and you can easily overcome the obstacles.

I Can Be What I Will To BeLaw of Subconscious:  As soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand, accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.

My comment:  Read the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.  We learned the following in this Master Key course… “The subconscious can and will solve any problem for us if we know how to direct it. The subconscious processes are always at work; the only question is, are we to be simply passive recipients of this activity, or are we to consciously direct the work?”  To change effects, you must change the cause.   And in this course we have already learned how to control the thoughts in our subconscious mind.

Law of Growth:  Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

My comment:  I am thinking about my business.  I am taking daily action in terms of my business and I am enjoying success.  Intention governs attention.  I give my attention to the Definite Major Purposes (DMPs) of the folks on my team.  When I do that, their business grows, and my income grows as a result.  (If we ‘think’ we are struggling, the Law of Growth takes over, and we struggle.  If we think we are making progress every day, the Law of Growth takes over, and our progress accelerates.)

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 11 – Master Key 2018: Positive Signs of Finding a Hero

Nikki Kendall Josh - Dec 2017My wife has dealt with dialysis for over two years due to a hereditary condition called Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD).  Her journey has been well documented at www.KidneyForNikkiBrooks.com.  As we start the holiday season, I am grateful to know that success is everywhere.  As we anticipate the appearance of our hero — a living kidney donor — I know that there is an abundance of success around us.

In general, sometimes we don’t have success it is because we are actually blocking it.  Often it is our own resentments that block the flow of divine energy.

We tend to be fascinated with how things like mobile phones and remote controls work.  Why are we often not fascinated about learning how our minds work?   Our minds are a much greater mechanism.

From our MKMMA readings:

The truth must be told to each generation and to people in new and different terms, so that when the Great Teacher said — “Believe that ye receive and ye shall receive” or, when Paul said — “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” or, when modern science says — “The law of attraction is the law by which thought correlates with its object”, each statement when subjected to analysis, is found to contain exactly the same truth. The only difference being in the form of presentation.

Like attracts like in the mental world.  Our faith is manifest through the Law of Attraction.  One of the best-selling books of all-time is Think and Grow Rich.   Notice that the first word of the title is THINK.

When you know that you know that you always keep your promises (especially to yourself), you will have self-confidence beyond measure.

Who wants to wake up every morning needing to ‘overcome fear’?   No one does.   The idea is to eliminate fear completely.   When you keep the promises you made to yourself, it becomes a successful habit.  You can start with writing down small tasks and creating the habit of doing them without fail.  You can start with organizing your office, or any normal task, by a specific date.  Before you know it you are effortlessly completing a so-called ‘bigger’ task such as making 10 calls per day to grow your network marketing business.  Your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between small/easy tasks and big/hard tasks.  You create a habit of actually doing everything you write down.

Fear eliminated.

Persistence is not a characteristic.  Peristence is a habit.  Know that ‘not quitting’ is not the same as Persistent Action.  And Persistent Action is easier once fear has been eliminated.  To have the Persistent Action you need for success (including wealth creation), you will need:  (1) A definite major purpose (DMP) backed by a burning desire, (2) A written plan of action (WPOA) expressed in continuous action, (3) A positive mental attitude (PMA), with your mind closed to all negative thought, and (4) a Master Mind Alliance, such as the course I am in, or it can be communication with an individual or group with whom you are in total harmony.

Success = DMP (Definite Major Purpose) + PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) + WPOA (Written Plan of Action) + MMA (Master Mind Alliance)

Check this out this video example of a Positive Mental Attitude:
