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:

Week 10 – Master Key 2018: Thankful to Pay It Forward

20150813_140420My adoptive mother Joan Brooks passed away in 2016, but she would have been 80 years old this past Thanksgiving weekend.  I am so fortunate that Joan gave her all as my mother.   She definitely paid it forward in terms of her love and care for me.  And I want to pay it forward for you, as you will see below.

The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner.

The words above are from Scroll III in Mandino’s book The Greatest Salesman in the World.  This passage really resonates with me as I help my network marketing team grow and succeed nationally.  I know that belief does not come from success.  Success actually comes from belief.  The correct order is BE, then DO, then HAVE.  Because of my belief, I am persistent.

Always will I take another step.  If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.  In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.

Persistence, baby, in pursuit of perfection!

Henceforth, I will consider each day’s effort as but one blow of my blade against a mighty oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes the oak will eventually tumble. So it will be with my efforts of today. I will be liken to the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger… I will persist until I succeed.

pay-it-forwardTo achieve my Definite Major Purpose, it takes persistence.  I am creating a “Life by Design”, with a happy balance of work, play, workouts, and family.  I am proud to help people earn Free Energy and Free Wireless Phone Service, and also to help people make life-changing money to enable their own amazing realities.  I cheerfully share my opportunity – paying it forward – and create productive networkers by teaching them exactly what to say and do to be successful.  I continue to do this, regardless of how long it takes or how many times I am told, “No Thanks.”  I am persistent.

So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win.  I will persist. I will win.

In summary, to have persistence and success, 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 with whom you are in total harmony.

This video may inspire you to persistently pay it forward:

Week 9 – Master Key 2018: Thankful to Be 100% Responsible

Nikki and Thomas - April 2014All 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.   We want to carry that attitude of gratitude every single day.

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 2017, too busy for friends and family?  Do you think you will be less busy by 2019 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 2018: What is Valuable? How about $86,400 Daily?

brooks-family-sept-2015-aThe Law of Karma is fundamentally that every choice has a consequence.  We are always making decisions.  Even indecision is actually a decision.

Imagine you woke up every morning with a brand new $86,400 in your bank account, but you can’t carry the money over to the next day.   You have to use it, or the bank deletes it.   You would spend it all, right?

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 (subconscious mind) 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, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter for hours every day instead of building wealth and retiring 15 or 20 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 rehearsal.

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 any other powerful or famous person you can think of only gets 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!   When I am happy, I can help enable the happiness of my family.   And nothing is more valuable to me than my family.

What if you truly 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.

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

Week 7 – Master Key 2018: Your Most Important Presentation

Thomas - July 2017We 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 views our future self as a “stranger”.   For example, some people delay working out, or some people delay financial investing, or some delay starting their Network Marketing business.  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 daily.

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 ourselves and 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 mind.  I have a big presentation every day.   I choose to be positive.  And, as part of the MKMMA course, we are going seven days with no negative thoughts.  No complaints.  (It may not seem easy at first.)

What are you afraid of?

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 6 – Master Key 2018: Love is All You Need

Thomas - CONNECT Oct 2017From 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 wireless 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.

blog-Og-Mandino-bookWhile I just had my best month so far in my growing network marketing business with Stream, 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.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “I have decided to stick to love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

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’.

Week 5 – Master Key 2018: Finishing Strong

Thomas in Tux - 2015Most people live life backwards.  They look at the methods available before choosing the intention.  The way that will work better for you is to first choose the intention, and then with the help of the subconscious mind, take action on the methods that appear.  Then you will achieve your intention.  Then you will be living life on purpose.

To help me R2A2 (Recognize, Relate, Assimilate and Apply) what I am learning in this course, I have posted a futuristic News Release based on how my life will look when my Definite Major Purpose (DMP) statement is already manifest.  Some of the methods have already appeared, and some have yet to appear.  The key for me right now is to take action on those methods with no hesitation as they appear.

I definitely see the value of verbally repeating my DMP statement multiple times per day.  This allows my conscious mind to direct the work of my subconscious mind.  This is from The Master Key System by Haanel:

At least ninety per cent of our mental life is subconscious, so that those who fail to make use of this mental power live within very narrow limits.

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? Shall we have a vision of the destination to be reached, the dangers to be avoided, or shall we simply drift?

Here are some excerpts from my own DMP statement:

My Definite Major Purpose is a “Life by Design”, with a happy balance of work, play, workouts, and family.

I am attracting passive monthly income by helping people earn Free Energy and Free Mobile with Stream.  Money flows to me effortlessly, and it is fun to help people.

I control my thoughts.  I enthusiastically schedule time weekly to talk to people and collect decisions.  I am giddy as I build teams that build teams that grow fast, without my direct involvement, achieving Stream National Director and profiling in my free brand new Tesla Model S on or before December 31, 2018, demonstrating competitive greatness.  With industriousness and self-confidence I create productive networkers by teaching them exactly what to say and do.  It feels amazing to enjoy financial AUTONOMY for myself and create a LEGACY for my family.  It is blissful to have time for weekly dates with my wife, my children’s activities, community service, extensive world travel, and completing cycling and swimming events.

Sometimes we fall down.  Will you get back up?  Will you finish strong?  Check out this video:

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