Week 14 Persistence Plus…Right thinking,

Focus, Discipline, Passion, Determination, Good Habits, Love in Our Hearts…

I have always loved the study of the mind and success.  Reading about it has brought clarity but then it is the above qualities in consistent action that is the kicker.  Looking into anyone’s lasting truly successful life story we find all these qualities. They start out thinking right and then go about getting what they think about.  And they ride through the bumps along the way.  Discouragement, being mocked, life circumstances, doubt creeping in are all facts of life.  It is how we deal with them that defines a truly successful person.

October Sky and Cool Runnings were terrific inspiring examples of aspiration beyond reality – A few kids building a rocket and at the creation of a Jamaican Bob Sled team in the Olympics.

A few of the points that were made very clear to me are that each person had a very clear definiteness of purpose and determination to learn whatever it took to get what he dreamed.

They followed through when mocked.  Some took a break from their dream when faced with family circumstances and/or pressure to conform to what Dad or their community thought their reality should be.  It took an Influencer and Encourager to believe in them so they could  revive the mental power and courage to think for themselves and listen to that passionate voice within.  They studied and Practiced Perfectly.  They took each defeat as a learning experience and went the next step. They visualized the end result and always thought their dream was possible.

I loved these movies.  They are really good choices for where we are in our MKMMA hero’s journey.  I am looking forward to Rudy and Door to Door.

Key notes from Haanel’s Master Key Part 14

25. Thought is the only reality; conditions are but the outward manifestations; as the thought changes, all outward or material conditions must change in order to be in harmony with their creator, which is thought.

26. But the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you cannot take one step forward and two steps  backward, neither can you spend twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking.

27. If you enter into the discipline necessary bring about a radical change in your life, you must do so deliberately, after giving the matter careful thought and full consideration, and then you must allow nothing to interfere with your decision…

30.  Your world without will be a reflection of your world within.

“Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view.”  George Mathew Adams

Christmas and Forever

I love my family.  I am blessed with a family that are loving, kind and generous in many ways.  They live  on one coast and I on the other and my commitment is to visit at least once a year.  Expensive and challenging.  I want to see them and be with them and love them. And this year it is a Christmas visit.  First in New Brunswick and then Florida.  Awesome.  My home in Vancouver seems so far away when I am here.

My resolve each visit is to stay on track with my other commitments while away. However I invariably fall off on the rails in doing the things I promised myself I would keep up. You know what I am talking about?…the exercise and eating habits, and the MKMMA routines I really, really enjoy.  I thought I was getting stronger in my habits and persistence.  I am and there is still a lot to be done.  The inner diet is much needed now after being away for 2 weeks.

It is a great awareness to see how quickly the old patterns/ blueprints/self talk seeps in when I am not constantly infusing this new learned wisdom into my subby.

The 50 minute exercise is great.  Although I haven’t made it 50 min.  I am better doing the out loud exercises when I am alone and that hasn’t been happening lately.  Remembering what you said Mark & Davene “If we think of struggle that is what we create”  And I am choosing to live in the ease and flow of joyfully creating my life!

I have finally been able to listen to Week 12 in full and I am just getting to the cards. I can already see the value in having them handy.  It is wonderful to remember all the great things I have done and experienced.  It’s a fantastic reminder of a life well lived. And getting better, more focused and intentional.

Do it now!

I can be what I will to be!

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!

Ask and you shall receive!   Believe!

I always keep my promises!

Much love to all that read this.  Hugs.

I hope to see you in April 🙂

The cone exercise hit my funny bone

The cone exercise was so funny for me.  I could draw the box, the circle and then the cone without much effort to begin with.  Albeit the ends were a bit fuzzy and as I changed the colors it became even more unclear.

Then I noticed my thoughts were interfering with my concentration and focus.

“There’s no cone there” “Are you nuts” “What are you thinking-it’s a white wall!”  I started to laugh and laugh hard at what my monkey mind was doing. Then of course everything disappeared and it has been challenging getting it back.  That monkey mind keeps taunting me and I keep laughing out loud at it… maybe I really am nuts 🙂

Anyway, I enjoyed the awareness and laughter.  Next time will be better and on and off it has been.  However I have never been able to get that initial clarity back.  Meantime I will hold the cone in my sub and it will make me smile.

Too fun!  I love this exercise.

Mental Diet! DC! :-) :-(

Well, well, well…

Honesty is the best policy-right?  I fell of the rails for a bit.

Life has just gotten out of hand and I am in the process of healing it in.  I need to say NO! I mean really need to say NO.  I have been feeling overwhelm these past couple weeks and have reached the breaking point. I will need to disappoint some people so I can keep healthy.  Since I am a people pleaser this is work.  Does anyone think I need a new mindset right now? 🙂  I fully admit it.

I was doing so amazingly well the first 8 weeks. ALL my exercises plus were all done and I was feeling on top of the world.  I still am a happy person, however at the moment a very busy person.

I went gusto into creating this life I have planned and have implemented soon many activities to move me forward.  At this point I believe a little less gusto would serve me better.  And I do have an excellent mastermind partner.  He’s doing way better than I am.  Improvement is near.

Loving the course and exercises and reading however… I have not had a chance to review my DC s webinar’s.  Will do that asap.  Hopefully I can stay on board until I get there.

Love and Hugs to all of you.

Who wants to keep you in the dark?

This is a cause I support wholeheartedly!  We must PERSIST in getting this info known.

Maybe there are other MKMMAers that are interested in this info too.  I was shocked!  Monsanto is well known for GMO. But Smuckers ?  Land o Lakes?

Who wants to keep you in the dark?

Oregon and Colorado had ballot initiatives to require mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Junk food and chemical corporations are spending million$ to fight these laws to prevent you from knowing whether or not your food contains GMOs. Sadly, the right-to-know people were outspent and the initiatives failed in Colorado but as of this writing the Oregon vote is too close to call. Who are the companies fighting to prevent you from knowing if foods are GMO? Below is a list and a breakdown of what they spent in Colorado and Oregon respectively. (1)

Colorado/Oregon

Monsanto: $4.7/$4.8 million
DuPont/Pioneer (Oregon only): $3.04 million
Pepsi: $1.65/$1.4 million
Coca-Cola: $1.1/$.7 million
Kraft Foods: $1.03/$.87 million
General Mills: $820,000/$695,000
The Hershey Co.: $380,000/$320,000
J.M. Smucker Co.: $345,000/$295,000
Dow Agrosciences, a Dow Chemical Company: $300,000/$368,000
Kellogg Co.: $250,000/$250,000
Conagra Foods: $250,000/$250,000
Flowers Food Inc. (Oregon only): $250,000
Smithfield Foods (Oregon only): $200,000
Land O’Lakes (Oregon only): $760,000

There is presently a boycott of the above companies as they try to prevent you from knowing if your food contains GMOs. Please join it.

My Wage – Jessie Rittenhouse 1918

The original MKMMAer ?  🙂

Poem from 1918 by Jessie B. Rittenhouse.

“My Wage”

I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;

For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have paid.
