For 23 weeks we have been forming new habits, becoming un-opinionated observers, opening our thoughts to new opportunities, new insights, discovering our future and most importantly, discovering our true selves and this creative world we live in, that so many have isolated us from for so long.
I’m a better person
No doubt, I’m a better person. Oh yes. New, good habits are formed; bad habits are mostly gone. Seeing opportunities clearly replaces the death-grip of holding onto the old. Seeking new influential friends, making public presentations, replaces idle chit-chat.
Seeing “it” in others
We have studied Mandino, Haneel, Hill, Chopra, Waddles, Franklin, Wooden to name a few. When I meet successful people, little do they know I’m seeing these qualities in them. And little do they know how they got successful, but I now know.
On the flip side, I see where others fail to achieve their greatness. For now, I have to remove their lifestyle and pity. Once I start applying my new knowledge, getting understanding, and ultimate wisdom, I will be able to bring these people up. Similar to how Coach Wooden.
Great leaders are not people who “cut-the-fat” and replace it with compatible minds to theirs. Far from that. Those are very weak leaders indeed. They live in a lack and limitation, impoverished mindset, so weak they can only trust to surround themselves with people they trust.
You see a great leader is someone who takes a “rat pack” and motivates them to World Champions, as Coach Wooden had the talent to do for 40 years.
Similar so, that is what the great minds behind Master Key Mastermind Alliance have done for us. Taking regular people, brought up in other people’s dreams, to think for ourselves, to learn in 7 ways, solidifying new neural nets, forming new habits, new tendencies while paying acute attention to the details of our true selves and our true aspirations for ourselves and learning how we best take actions toward achieving our dreams by identifying our natural tendencies to action. Thank you Mark Januszewski.
Yesterday I thumbed through a book I’ve had for some 18 months but never read. It is called “Screw it, Lets Do it” by Richard Branson. I browsed to a later chapter and read what I thought was 2 pages, but it was really about 10. I started taking notes all over it. I really wasn’t learning much from Sir Richard. What I was taking notes on was Richards account of how he overcame struggles and pushed forward with ACTION. My notes were all one-liners from the authors and lessons we have studied in MKE.
I see how successful people get where they are. It is not a mystery. It is not a luck thing at all. It is mindset and action. They have the mind to achieve, and they tirelessly take ACTION, ACTION, ACTION, tirelessly. They never get exhausted like underachievers. They keep on going, pushing, in the services they render. And the more services we give, the more we receive in form of payment and future opportuinies.
Alas, I see what’s really going on and what it really takes.
This week, a week of least effort (sort of)
Our lesson in week 23 focused on the fact that it takes less effort to become successful than to fail. We studied Chopra. Specifically: Acceptance, Responsibility, Defenselessness. We made flash cards of these to be read daily. In summary,
Acceptance – Accept things as they are right now as being exactly the way they are because of universal laws. Sure they may not be the way we want them, but the situation is a result of universal laws and principles. So don’t fight the universe, you won’t win. So how do we change the situation?
Responsibility – Taking responsibility means taking charge. There is no blame. The situation is a result to work with. Actually, quoting Og, the situation is the seed of tomorrow’s success, right? When we take responsibility, we are exerting our confidence. We are well versed in realizing, recognizing, relating, assimilating and take action with our newly formed good habits. The more responsibility we take, the more effort we put into this “opportunity in disguise”, they more we receive, and the service returned to benefit others is due back to us in goodness and payment perhaps. But best of all, less stress! Right?
Defenselessness – So many hold themselves back by defending their opinion. Well what is their opinion? It is the sum of outdated things they learned decades ago. They argue, stress themselves, and that’s not healthy either. In Defenselessness, we do not defend. It is as it is, and we seek other points of view. When you do that, not only do you release the banana that’s holding you captive to the cage you are in, but you lower stress, get more free time, look like a hero, and are rewarded.
It’s all about becoming harmoneous. The Law of Least Effort solidifies that it takes less effort to become successful than to fail.
What a week! What a semester! What a future!
This week we learned how to take less effort. For this 23 week long semester, we have formed new habits, become un-opinionated observers, opened our thoughts to new opportunities, new insights, discovered our future and most importantly, discovered our true selves and this creative world we live in, that so many have isolated us from for so long. Life is bliss now.
The CONFIDENCE I have is PURE. It is the fact that I know I am creating a new future, FOR MYSELF that benefits all. I am of service. I am Nature’s greatest miracle. I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, (prosperous), loving, harmonious, and happy. I am the greatest salesman in the world. I realize that I am a spirit with a body. My spirit is creative and likened to the great creator of this magnificent universe that gives us our every need. I realize every thing has a spirit in and of itself. Everything is alive, us, plants, dust, wind, planets. All alive! All ever changing. The soul of money is service. Service in essence is a form of giving. And people pay us money for services rendered. The more service we give, the more we get. The more love we give, the more we get.
True Confidence for the future comes from our innermost spirit connected to the Universal Laws, connected to God, and all answers to every question we can possibly conceive is within us. This is awesomeness. This is what I live.
Thank you God, Jesus, and all the authors we study, and all my mentors I surround myself with.
Action. We will conclude our final lesson Sunday, then have commencement (meaning beginning) the Sunday after. Who will I invite?
For myself and achieving my SMART goals in my DMP, requires action. True, confident action I have in myself. I must be of service to people whether they realize it or not. I must make new friends, friends of influence and friends of service.
The fun is in the journey, and I’m totally ready for it!
I always keep my promises, Blake Corley
