Week 8 – Re-adjusting and The Mental Diet

G’Day and Happy Friday!

From Emmet Fox Essay The Mental Diet 1935

Emmet Fox wants me to be very clear about this. if I change my mind my
conditions must change too. We are transformed by the renewing of our minds.
So now I will see that my mental diet is really the most important thing in my
whole life.

From Charles Haanel Master Key System 8-18/19 1912

18. The law of attraction will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions,
environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual,
characteristic, predominant mental attitude. Not what you think once in a while
when you are in church, or have just read a good book, BUT your predominant
mental attitude is what counts.
19. You can not entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts ten hours a day and
expect to bring about beautiful, strong and harmonious conditions by ten minutes
of strong, positive, creative thought.

With the world within being the cause of the experience we have it makes sense to be very deliberate in what we say and think each minute of every day.  It makes a lot of sense to make like the reaper and be conscious of what seeds we sow in the fertile soil of our subconscious; as this ultimately becomes the crop of predominant thought patterns each minute of every day.

With the principles fully explained so far regarding the conscious minds role as a gatekeeper to the ‘subbie’ because the ‘subbie’ does not have the capacity to reason or evaluate the information coming into it.  From our own thought, our consistent words used and of course the inputs from our environment.

Our ‘Mental Diet’ exercise this week adds to the no opinion discipline of past weeks and the start of the 7 day mental diet (7 days of no negative thoughts, restarting fresh with any slip to the negative unless caught and substituted within a few seconds); is the cessation of television for a week.

Out of this trio of challenging improvements, having and sharing no opinion has been the most difficult to master; lucky we don’t have a 7 day restart each time on this aspect.

I find as I have expertise in a variety of areas there is often something I wish to share to add value, however to do this is to invite the ego in for a run about as an uninvited guest. It is not my place to judge and decide anyone needs my uninvited opinion on any subject, let alone unsolicited advice as an expert. Stand back!! Listen and learn more about everybody.

The ‘No Negative Thought Diet’ has been much easier, however this only comes as a result of many many years of being more aware and mindful of how I think, realising early in my personal development that optimism and positive thought had far more to offer than pessimism and negativity.  All that said, the first few days had a few restarts included as thoughts slipped past the keeper before caught and substituted for a better choice.

No Television!! Well I thought it would be like that anyhow. In truth I am a little surprised how little I miss sitting with that old mate.  Time shared with the gorgeous Georgie has been more engaged, dinner on the verandah listening to the birds or frogs and cicadas depending how late we have left eating.

So the diet so far;

Form no judgement or opinion unless asked as an expert, allows the forming of a curiosity and increased attention to the details of life.

No negative thinking, requires the predominant thinking to be positive as a result of the duality of our thoughts; always seeking a new positive view of each situation to exclude the negative.

No TV, stops the crap coming in without being able to consciously filter it all out, while of course filling the mind with course content like the reading, the purpose, the plan of actions and service cards, the visualisation and movie posters.  Freeing up time every single day that was previously wasted, to complete promises.

The bike below had become a victim of procrastination and now we are enjoying each others company again.  Better thinking, more time and of course, “I always keep my promises” and “do it now!” ringing in my mind.

The re-adjustment, well the old blue print was finding excuses not to compete tasks and to not find time.  This week I pick up the baton of my personal race again and will come to the line a winner in March next year at the completion of this Master Key Master Mind Experience.

Week 7 – Shapes, Colours, Movie Poster, no opinion, linguistics and the start of a ‘Mental Diet’

As the assault on the ‘old blueprint’ continues from all learning styles; its resistance is evident daily.

I’d love to be writing about all the big epiphanies and breakthroughs, to be honest though I must be getting close to the seam of gold.  It feels that way and I know in my whole being that the disciplines and work, the mental labour, are equipping me for an amazing future. The field of diamonds is in my possession yet not feeling the gems are being gathered up.

Understanding the various learning styles are being deployed here to ensure all aspects are covered, coloured shapes may not be a primary tool of association for me.

My focus on my Definite Major Purpose and creating the intent to unfold it all is going well, my confidence and excitement for the future me is high and stable.  The Master Key Master Mind Process and the teams approach is of the highest of value; a unique offering in the personal development arena.

No opinions has opened my eyes to that compulsion to add my bit, even though deep down knowing it wasn’t adding value.  This has almost stopped and is becoming something I intend to continue for life, good grooming of the ego and setting boundaries for him.  Though having done so well, two of our adult children announced their new diet regimes this week which stimulated a cascade of opinion from me that I didn’t recognise until later in the day. Even though I am an expert in the field of health and nutrition, the opinion was not sought and was hardly a gift in retrospect.

The mental diet, seven days straight without a negative thought is a fun challenge, noticing and capturing the train of thought when conscious or having a restart after something slips past and becomes apparent.  No cursing self or others, no negative judgments of self or others.

I have been a pretty mindful person for some years and would be described as a positive optimistic person by friends and family, however this ‘mental diet’ has made me much more conscious of the struggle to project that image or behaviour.  There were initially a couple of days of restarts, frustrations with others and cranky at self moments. The deliberate restart of the seven days as a deterrent perhaps or even a trigger to be more heightened in my mindfulness to arrest the patterns has been very effective.  Today has been free of negative thought!!

I have had to manage around several obstacles this last two weeks, funny work patterns, fatigue and the sleep required to reset it.  Building a NWM business team slowly and putting on public wellness presentations to build some foundations for DMP unfoldment. So I am not in complete harmony with the alliance and a bit behind on some tasks.

On the upside things I have procrastinated over for a long time are getting done, my body is complaining about the exercise it has been exposed to and I am happy and exited about a business I had become complacent with.  All round a successful seven weeks (wow have never suck at a task with this level of focus that long before, I expect I am not the only one).

I can only encourage all those participating to continue and those looking on to get on board in the 2015 class.

This next week is a restart for me, I have days off coming up that are dedicating them to total absorption in MKMMA and go90grow (yes I am doing that too 🙂 )

Week 6 — Damn that old blueprint is well imprinted

G’Day and Happy Thursday / Friday

I would love to say that I am getting through this process unscathed by the wrath of the ‘subbie’, ego or old blue print.

A few gaps formed this week that have placed unexpected internal pressure on me and I am not sure I was my best at this week.

I am still here though and have identified the thoughts and patterns forming, or at least attempting to form.  At no point in my life have I maintained such continuity of action or focused thought, to the achievement of an even longer game plan.  There will be no retardation of my new life’s growth.

The value of the work being done here, the challenges to the old blue print and the focus on writing a new and fabulous story for all who participate; is beyond measuring.

The resistance I have experienced this week is testimony to how ingrained the programming of our environment can become over the course of a lifetime.

If we do not push through the natural nature of the ego protection, we can just resign ourselves to that life of mediocrity and quiet desperation.  Personally I didn’t pursue entry into the Master Key Master Mind Alliance because I was willing to settle into that.

Not only that, I have a strong desire to have the feeling of glee and satisfaction that seeing my dreams expressed into the world without, the thousands of people living happier, healthier and more prosperous lives as a direct result of there association with me and the work I have done.

This will not happen unless I develop the necessary self confidence within to bring to life my Definite Major Purpose.  To do that, I will use that purpose to leverage the power within; through the exercises of the course I can maintain the focus of my sun in the one spot long enough that the outcomes are obvious and irreversible.

To all those in the 2014 class, I believe that if you felt this was the way to where you wanted to go, then go with that intuitive guidance and ignore the niggling calls for the old status quo by the ‘subbie’.

Let’s do it!!

Week Five – Under the Pump or What!!

G’Day and happy Friday / Saturday

The headline says it all and dare I say it; I am taking on something new, having decided to expand my involvement with the MKMMA team and do go90grow from the next day or so.

It makes sense, but doesn’t make sense …..

The MKMMA will provide the mental foundations that make the go90grow skills really pay off and provide me with footprints in the sand I can follow and pass on, however the current load from MKMMA, Job and homelife are feeling a little crazy.

Can I do this, well, I can be what I will to be and I can do it now

Read my “press release” (quotie things) to see why it is important to stay the course and not retard my new life’s growth.

There has never been a time in my life when there has been so much continuous focus on achieving my purposeful deliberate success. Even with that I am not getting it all incorporated into life as I would desire it; thinking it will be great in the future to be able to go through this again and not have a demanding worklife getting in the way.

Not that I desire any unemployment to be gifted me by a well meaning universal creativity, more that the success which is mine as a direct result of this work is to allow me to chose how my time will be best spent.

I will catch up on some more activity tomorrow and jump into life with the gusto I deserve.

Week Four – Time to Quit!

Time to Quit!

Wait a minute … only 4 weeks in and I am tossing in the towel. Hell no, I am quitting any resistance I have to the concepts and new blue print building activities being asked of me.

G’Day and happy Aussie Friday

Wow week 4 you have been serving it up.  Had to watch the replay of the webinar just to get it straight and to drop the overwhelming sensation of ‘it’s all building up’ ‘how can I keep up’.

As I have mentioned I do not live a monday to friday 9-5 lifestyle, more like working all over the shop, 24/7 changing everyday and each week 52 weeks a year.  It is actually not possible to follow the model of the class to the letter. However what I can and will do is make ‘a fit’ that allows me to acheive all that is required to not only stay within my obligations but empowers me to achieve the spirit of the excercise fully.  I did it now and I did it my way!

Don’t be mistaken, I am following this class curriculum to the letter and am surprising myself how my past procrastination has been missing.. There is a drive to succeed and I am taking more action in the last few weeks to secure that then at any other time in my life.  This S#*#t works!

What I am choosing to do though is to embrace the life I lead right now, be gratefull for the Master Key Mastermind Alliance scholarship coming my way at this time and blend the two together 100% as best I can.  I know that there are so many people who are flying blind, living out someone else’s plan for them and bumping aimlessly from one challenge to the next.

I am quitting that life for good!!

I am quitting accepting failure as par for the course

I am quitting worrying about what other people are doing or thinking

I am quitting seeing my dharma as just a pipe dream and have started making it my destiny.

I am quitting the need to know all the details and have started to allow my world within to connect to that universal source for decisions.

I am quitting fear and it’s blanketing affect on the sun of my great ideas.

I can be what I will to be, and I can do it now!

Week Three – MKMMA is becoming life as I know it

G’day and Happy Saturday / Sunday

Week three has rushed to a close.  Where week one and two I seemed to pushed to fit everything in; more mentally than actually.

This last week has been a full one, with another tweak of the definite major purpose (DMP) to include my personal pivotal needs and more emotional charge, a summary or movie trailer of DMP and a combined book / business launch event to bring together.

Yet there was such an internal push to ensure all MKMMA obligations were completed to the best of my ability.

Yes this does imply it wasn’t a perfect application of tasks, however not for a lack of sticking what I can into whatever gaps appear.  Not working a regular job, as I have a role in the rail industry that involves staggered rostering on a 24/7 basis.  There have been interruptions from being there or being in bed to recover for the next turn of duty. So it has been challenging to shuffle this all together.

It is very interesting how the readings change each time now, i used to believe my comprehension skills were pretty good; however when new meanings and phrases suddenly popping up as powerful, proves that every good read deserves a couple of reads at least.

I have always known that meditation is of great benefit and would when under the pump ‘sit’ and disengage for a while.  For the first time in my life meditating for 15-20 mins each day or as Haanel describes it, sitting, is something I will be continuing as the end of day and sleep has obviously improved. If we include the known science around the health benefits in our decisions, it is actually a no brainer to keep it up.

I now this whole process has added value to my launch event this week, able to clearly think and organise all that was needed to be done.  More significantly I attracted so much help to set up and pack up, to help organise guests and make sure everything came off in the most professional manner. Thankyou Thankyou!!

To all my fellow MKMMA students, lets stay in harmony and choose to go at it 100% so we can extract the greatest benefits from the experience and generosity of our teachers.

Week Two – I Promise

G’Day and Happy Saturday

Week two of the Master Key Mastermind Alliance Programme is nearly completed and the internal pressure of a promise is showing itself to be a powerful tool.

Let’s start with the ‘chore card’. I have had the back end of a motorbike pulled apart for a long long time, nothing serious, just for painting wheels and rear frame.

The poor stead found itself tucked away in a spot getting surrounded by ‘stuff’ and covered in dust.  Meanwhile I ride all over the land on a temporary touring bike.

Procrastination abounding in my mindset, the fun bike hibernates.

When Mark asked for a chore that requires no help or resources to complete that had been undone; the poor dusty red beast came immediately to mind.  I made a promise to refit the wiring to the tail frame by Oct 12; what happened …… by the evening Oct 6, wiring done, tail reassembled and biked moved to the centre of the garage so it gets to be finished.  Yay! The pressure to do this task was compelling.

Then there is the daily CH sit still and the collection of daily reads.

As someone working wild shift work (heavy haul train crew, Hunter Valley) at present, organising a book and enterprise launch, while making time for life; there has been times where going to bed or staying in bed have been powerful options.  Yet the moment that thought enters the mind, “won’t hurt if I miss one” the passage “and i make a solemn oath to myself that nothing will retard my new life’s growth. I will lose not a day from these readings ……” from Mandino’s ‘The Greatest Salesman in the World pops straight in.  I read, I meditate and I review my Definite Major Purpose as i promised myself i would.

By the end of the next 24 or so weeks it is clear that new powerful habits and better access to the world within will be adding more than the expected value to my life and it’s successes.

Thanks MKMMA team for all the energy and support you add to the process.

Week One – Challenge Accepted

As I approach the end of week one of MKMMA ….
Defined Major Purpose has been massaged with the help of my ‘hands on’ guide, Carol; it’s feeling powerful.  As the DMP is part of the daily reading required it is interesting to see how the old blueprint intervenes from time to time. 

I have found using EFT while reading the DMP out loud is easing the tension the adventure brings up.

Today is the first challenge to reading habit by my work.  Timing will be out, however three sessions will be completed. 

My job gave me a good reminder today as to why my DMP is so important.  It’s 0540hrs on Saturday of a public holiday long weekend.  I have been on duty since 2030 hrs Friday and still 120km from home.

I hold myself in a point of gratitude to my employer,  gfc haven and wealth provider for future projects.  With such a well paid job to lean on DMP will unfold nicely.

Next week brings new lessons from The Master Key System and the Worlds Greatest Salesman.  How tempting it is to read ahead.

In the Spirit of Happiness, Health and Prosperity.

Week One – Challenge Accepted!

G’Day and happy Monday!

The first webinar of MKMMA this morning went for nearly 3 hours and the dedication of the MKMMA team to ensure no one is left behind in these early stages is great to see; although it becomes clear there is a certain “mother figure” that is not to be dicked around with 🙂

I have always encouraged clients to develop a written purpose to help guide their decision making and of course had one of my own that I have had for many years. Today I am reminded of where the power lays in accessing your purpose everyday.  Dharma, the purpose in life, is so important and from my experience with clients missing for most people.  Living a reactive life, being bounced from one external stimulus or disappointment to the next.

Is it any wonder so few people really enjoy the life they desire to enjoy, that so few create the success they believed when young they would.  The forming of a clearly defined Dharma, even if only to discover what your real purpose is provides a daily foundation upon which to build that day to be great.  Throw enough great days together and its a great life.

One thing for sure living a life of reaction and expectation, without deliberate thoughts and beliefs about how to create your life as you desire, means you will be surely living your life as part of someone else’s deliberate life.  Chances are they are not that concerned about how yours turns out.

I submitted a new Definite Major Purpose (DMP) today for the MKMMA experts to help me make it as powerful as possible in creating my life of purpose

Once my purpose is massaged to perfection, I will share it with you and you can hold me to account.

Now we start a 6 month journey through the writings of Haanel, Hill, Mandino and others, doing daily activities that is allowing all the shift in me away from an old blue print drawn up by some well meaning and some not so people in my past.

A process that is already allowing me to better access the world within, the power we all have built into us, to be who we want and create what we desire to fulfill our purpose in life.

This may ruffle some feathers in the world around me 🙂

Did it go through ok?

Sitting in that moment of doubt, wondering if the application actually went in ok.

Have done so many things quickly this arvo to get everything in place to qualify, yet a niggling doubt in my mind about the application itself being submitted, Mark J imprinted in my mind that some mucked that up last year 🙂

Hoping to hear something back soon
