I have noticed that this week I was able to get a lot more accomplished in a day than before. I had very important paperwork to get done for the state, and usually I will hem and haw about getting it done, but I was able to get the information that I needed and put the paperwork together in less than three hours.
“Do it now!” is having an impact on me. I have noticed a quiet confidence just under the radar that’s got me excited about tackling bigger things in my life.
“The man who looks within instead of without cannot fail to make use of the mighty forces which will eventually determine his course in life and so bring him into vibration with all that is best, strongest and most desirable.” I am looking within and seeing that subby is changing my actions.
My level of focus seems to be getting better. I don’t bounce around starting things and not finishing them. I find myself completing things more easily and quicker.
These are just some of my observations about my week and how it went very smoothly. Even if it didn’t go smoothly, I can see progress, and that’s exciting!
With the Christmas holiday gone and New Years right around the corner, it is easy to get off track by letting the holiday, friends and family to determine the use of my time, instead of following my compass. I really had to prepare ahead of time for Christmas, so that I would follow through with my commitments.
I want to continue Keeping the fire stoked, so that subby will continue to cause my future self to emerge. “Do it now” and “I can be what I will to be” are just as critical to chant as they were when we started out on this journey.
Burning my DMP, POA, press release and BPB into my subconscious is the way that I will gain the success that I seek in life. As Hannel said in 14:18 “Back of every effect there is a cause, and if we follow the trail to its starting point, we shall find the creative principle out of which it grew.”
Doing the work, and keeping at it, will cause the effect to eventually come!
We are passing the midway mark in this course, and I am really anticipating the changes to continue coming with more intensity. I am a different person than I was when I started out on this journey, and will be even more so as the weeks go by.
So I am going to keep at it until I achieve my definite major purpose in life!
We are at the half way mark of our journey and I can see that there is much to continue to do. I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in this journey.
I can’t wait to see what week 18 is like being at the three-quarter mark. I am all in now and plan on loving my future self, by putting in the work that is required to create lasting change in my subby.
The sit is becoming more and more important to the changes that are to take place in me. ” Thought will bring about conditions in correspondence with the predominant mental attitude.” Coming into harmony with the Father, the universal mind, the creator and knowing that we are one, of the same substance, is of vital importance to helping subby to believe my DMP and to carry it out.
The more that I buy into the law of dual thought and practice it with conviction, the more I give my future self the opportunity to manifest.
As far as Hannel is concerned, the work that we are doing with all the thought conditioning (reading our DMP, BPB, POA, GS and the guy or girl in the glass) is a form of giving. In 13:22b he states: “It is exactly the same with us; we will get exactly what we give, but we shall have to give it first. It will then return to us many fold , and the giving is simply a mental process, because thoughts are causes and conditions are effects; therefore in giving thoughts of courage, inspiration, health or help of any kind we are setting causes in motion which will bring about their effect.” The more we do this, the more we get back. This is in line with Emerson’s law of compensation.
I really think that this weeks focus is vital to making big strides in my quest for change. Without persistence, I would not finish any worthwhile goal in life. Persistence requires my focus on what it is that I am being persistent about.
Whether it’s making calls to potential prospects or attending a toastmaster’s meeting to establish excellent speaking skills. I have to use persistence to reach my goals. I plan on eating the elephant one bite at a time. Og in “The Greatest Salesman” stated the following: “Henceforth I 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 (does) eventually tumble.”
The first principle of the Blue Print Builder states the following: “I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my definite purpose in life, therefore, I demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.”
Put these two together and you have the recipe for success in any endeavor. I want my subconscious mind to be totally sold on this reality, so I am doing whatever is put on our plate to work the burning desire into my mind.
This week has been full of stretching points. By stretching points, I mean that there have been things that I chose to do that caused growth.
One of those things, was having a mastermind partner. It’s one thing to hold yourself accountable for working on your DMP, but it adds a whole new dimension to your life, when you make yourself accountable to someone else.
Meeting daily with my accountability partner this week, has really helped me to stay focused on the things that I purposed to do to work on my plan of action. Knowing that you are going to have to explain what you accomplished the day prior, helps you to get those things done that you planned.
I used to be a major procrastinator, and would wait until the very last-minute to get things done. Since I have been involved with the Master Key Experience, I have been getting things done in a more timely fashion.
Having a mastermind partner has helped me even more to get those things done that I had purposed to do.
It has inspired me to want to start a mastermind group, so I’ve been doing some research on how to start one and what is involved in creating a successful group. I look forward to growing through this process.
This will be a short post!
The personal growth that I am receiving from going through this course is incredible. I know it is not just coincidence that I am seeing such a difference in myself.
My confidence level is soaring. I am doing things that I have been wanting to do for years. I joined Toastmasters in order to increase my speaking and leadership skills. I am setting up a mastermind group in order to support my DMP, but also to develop new skill sets and to develop a think outside the box mentality.
I’ve been on disability for over six years, and I have decided to get back into the work force even if it is in a limited capacity. “I can be what I will to be!”
I am more positive due to the mental diet challenge, and I’m I am very in touch with what I am thinking and what comes out of my mouth. While I was driving today, a driver passed me and cut in front of me real quick and out of my mouth came “You moron!” I immediately said out loud “that was not Christ like” and asked for forgiveness and forgave him. I said to the driver that he was not a moron. This would not have happened several months ago. I would have ranted about him cutting me off and been all steamed up about it for hours before I let it go.
I am responsible for my actions, emotions, and what I think. I don’t have to rant about how someone drives, it’s a choice that I make to do so! I can really choose how I think about anything that seems to be negative. I am making the mental diet a daily habit in my life. I would rather have to reset 100 times a day, than to continue in a negative mindset.
These are small changes, but the accumulative effect will cause great changes in my life over time.
One thing that still challenges me, is developing the skill of visualization. I am having a hard time seeing clearly the pictures that Hannel has us to visualize in the assignment. (Can I get some help here) Lol:} I don’t think I am a visual person. I will continue to practice until I get it!
I did the self assessment test, and I dropped significantly in points. I am happy about that. I guess this post wasn’t that short after all! Until next week…I’ll Keep at it!
This week I Have noticed, that opportunities have come up daily for me to manifest love. It seems like the more I focus on being 100% involved in this process, that opportunities show up for me to follow through with action. I especially notice these gifts, when I am driving. I have plenty of opportunities to say I love you to the driver in front of me, instead of ranting about how he or she are not doing what I want them to do.
With the mental diet, so far I have only been able to go one day without a negative thought or reaction. I have had many restarts so far this week. I will keep at it!
I really like the phrase “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.” I have put that on a separate card to use for an affirmation to speak several times daily, with the idea that I am loving myself and caring for myself.
This entire process has been an eye opener for me. I really want to get in touch with my future self and become best friends. I am starting to understand why we must do all these seemingly unrelated assignments. They all fit into the greater picture of causing the future self to emerge and to manifest our DMPs.
I am practicing the visualization techniques, I have a lot of work to do in this area. I have difficulty getting vivid pictures when I try to visualize things. I am going to keep practicing until I get it right.
Week 8 and I am seeing more changes in my actions. I am getting more done in a week than I ever have before.
My focus is much sharper and I can stay on task until what I initiated is complete. I find that my old tendency to hesitate or procrastinate when I am deciding to do task is gone. “Do it now” has replaced that! I find myself attacking tasks instead of contemplating first.
I find that I am saying my POA, Service card, DMP and the 4 promises with more enthusiasm now.
These are just some observations about the changes that I am seeing in myself.
The mental diet is making me so much more aware of how I think and what I am thinking. This can only have a profoundly positive affect on me as I continue to be the gate-keeper of my thoughts.
I already had a person ask me why I wear a compass around my neck. I told her that it was a metaphor about making the choice to live by my definite major purpose verses the clock, and that I manage myself instead of my time.
All I can say, is I’ll move onward and upward, and keep at it!
