This week I learned just how difficult it is to not have a negative thought. I even learned that being sarcastic is the same as being negative. I googled it. I went to the grocery store with the family and my youngest at the age of 7 was touching everything he passed by. He is not usually like this so I believe I was being tested and I failed. I finally said “I am going to slap your hand.” He just looked at me with that unbelieving look he has.
My husband is looking for the canned french green beans so we can stock up since the price is way discounted and the case is underneath 3 other cases. I am not able to help since my 7 year old again is standing right in front of me. I then begin to say how it is so much easier to go to the store solo. I am reminded by hubby about my 7 day of no negative thoughts and I remember someone on the mindset call saying this is a lifetime thing and I think of course it is because you have to keep starting over again and again.
I tell my husband the trick must be to live in solitary in order to have no negative thoughts. He is laughing and saying this is going to be interesting Mrs. Sarcastic.
I will keep trying I just want to know if anyone has made it to the 7 days yet.
I am on week 6 of the Master Key course and it keeps getting better. I keep learning new things. I am now letting go of procrastination which used to be a good friend so I thought. I am told it is part of my old blueprint.
I got rid of the blueprint of a quitter. When things seem overwhelming or difficult I just take a breath and think quitting is what I used to do but I can do this. It started with small things that I would procrastinate and not get done. I would actually complete them on a timely schedule. Like building a house one brick at a time. I am building a new blueprint one service, one activity at a time.
On the Mastermind call last Sunday November 1st, 20015 I heard this great thing. When dealing with negative people or unwanted opinions of others to do this:
I am on week 5 of the Master Key course and one of the assignments was to write a Press Release. I was feeling like this would be difficult at first but then I just decided to start doing it and see what happens. Funny thing is that as soon as I started writing it the words just came.
Usually I would take a long time deciding what questions to write and who was doing this interview in my Press Release. I just did it. No long questioning if this was a good choice or not. Overthinking seems to equal not getting things done.
It is all in our mind that some things are difficult when they are pretty simple. I am not sure why so many act like things are harder then they really are. It was kind of even fun writing out someone of the future.
My kids are starting to do things that this course has me do. I say “Do it now! 25 times twice a day. I heard my 8 year old doing this and my 7 year complaining about how annoying it was.
They told us how we should have a note pad to write down what our dreams are so that when we get up we won’t forget them. I really need to do this I have so many dreams that just disappear from my memory once I get up for the day. I think reading The Greatest Salesman and my DMP before going to sleep may have an effect on what dreams come my way. My son hears me reading this as well wonder if it effects his dreams.
This is week 4 for me on my journey of the Master Key course. They tell us this week we will all quit. This means we either quit the course or quit giving our less then 100% to it. We also vote on pay it forward choices.
I know wake up and in my head I hear a voice saying Do it now! over and over. I think about all the things we are doing for this course and at times I think it is a bit much. Then I think well they say it is science and it works. It is not complicated to do so just do it. Funny how you can have a conversation in your head with no one else to talk to and no voice for anyone else to hear. This really reminds them of what they keep talking about which is a world within.
If feels like it is a whole world within that no one but you sees. What would your world within be like?
You can change your whole state by just reading something with emotion. I read my DMP out loud with emotion and things just seem more clear and I get this surge of energy. So here’s to looking at what next week brings me.
This week I did not need to turn in a revision of my DMP. (Definite Major Purpose) I do however have to make a mini version of it which is called a trailer. You know like the trailer versions of a movie. This has been challenging for me. It reminds me of when I go away on a trip and I always over pack. This is an example of my not know what to choose so I choose to bring it all. I seem to always come home with many things that I did not use.
As I think about it. It would be much better to be able to pack with less. The wasted energy that I used in packing and unpacking. The heavier bag to carry. Just like the trailer I can focus on the highlights of my DMP. When you tell someone about a movie that is what you tell them. You do not tell them the whole movie.
On the Sunday Masterminding webinar Mark talked about how he used to think what if this worked for everyone but him. I thought I was the only one with those thoughts. I have gone to so many trainings where I have heard about how life changing it was for others and I get home and it just did not happen like that for me.
I am choosing to just follow the plan and keep on this journey and believe this will work. It is not like what I am doing is difficult or crazy so just keep plugging away. Do it now! Do it Now! I read this 25 times in a row. Anyone can do this but some will not. They rather keep doing what they have been doing and keep having the results in life they have been getting. No not me anymore.
This is week 2 of my Master Key experience. I wrote out my DMP and received feedback on ways to make it better. I read my DMP three times a day with enthusiasm which equals my family thinking I have gone mad. No more going to sleep with the TV. I now go to sleep with my DMP freshly read out loud. At least no weird looks on that one since my husband is working nights and kids in bed when I read that last thing before going to sleep.
My son now knows not to disturb me during my 15 minutes of sitting still time. I find it best to just tell them I am about to do my sit time so they do not come in and interrupt otherwise I could be starting over and over.
I am creating new habits. Good habits are being replaced with other habits. Something has to change in order for good changes to happen. One of the things I wrote in my DMP was to give up getting involved in multiple things at once and focus on one thing and succeed with ease. I was challenged on this this week by someone offering me an opportunity. I chose to focus on what I am doing now and not add more to my plate at this time. This is big for me.
I am looking forward to where this journey will lead me.
This week I started the Master Key course offered by Mark Januszewski and his lovely wife Davene. This is a commitment of 26 weeks. They say there is no try in MKMMA there is only DO!
This will consist of me writing a blog every week. I will be reading scroll 1 from The Greatest Salesman by Og Mandino 3 times a day. Did I mention this is everyday. The one kicker here is a read it right before going to bed out loud and after that no TV, DVD, internet or anything like that so I basically just go to sleep after reading it at night. I have to tell you it was awkward but I slept better doing this.
I had to create a DMP aka Definiteness Major Purpose and send it in. I am given a guide that will read my DMP and let me know where I should improve it. I am reading The Master Key everyday and then sit for 15 minutes daily. Sit without talking, or moving. This one is not as easy as it sounds. I dare you to try.
In the DMP that I wrote I explain what I want and it made me realize that I have not done that in a positive way since childhood. When you are a child you say I want this toy or I want to go swimming. You do not bring up what you don’t want like many adults do. Many when you ask what they want they will say they will talk about what they don’t want like I want to be debt free, meaning I do not want to be in debt. I want to fire my boss, meaning I do not want to have to keep going to that job.
In the Master Key course we are taught to speak and think with emotion of things you want and on a positive way because your subconscious will hear you. So be careful of what you say.
The next 26 weeks are going to be very interesting. I am looking forward to see this journey through.
