Week 11 of Master Key’s MKMMA

There are many things I’m learning on this course. One is: “It’s not always easy to share your personal journey with others knowing we all believe so differently.

Mark & Davene ask for our honesty. Honesty is the highest of importance to me. So at this point I have to say I wasn’t sure if I could stay in Harmony with the Team this week. This is why:

In sharing my thoughts and re-posting others as well on the team I realize we are branding ourselves as it’s called in the Social Media Terms. This is what I’ve been working on. I’m online to share what I believe will help others on their Wellness Journey.

I have very specific Spiritual Beliefs and they are based on years of in-depth study & prayer. I’m not here to go into them. I do have to say I’m not if full agreement with the way scriptures are used in the master keys. This is not the time or place for me to share more. I talked to Davene as I do want to continue with the Course. She said to share how I feel.

Scroll 4 of Greatest Salesmen says “I am nature’s greatest miracle. I am a unique creature of nature.” “Vain attempts to imitate others no longer will I make. Henceforth, I will capitalize on this difference for it is an asset to be promoted to the fullest. ”

We are all unique on this MKMMA Team, even as we are in Harmony working for our personal goals.

The intro for week 11 says;

It is well, however, to remember that while every effect
is the result of a cause, the effect in turn becomes a
cause, which creates other effects, which in turn create
still other causes; so that when you put the law of
attraction into operation you must remember that you
are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise
which may have endless possibilities.

#18 & 19; We are first to believe that our desire has already
been fulfilled, its accomplishment will then follow. This is
a concise direction for making use of the creative power
of thought by impressing on the Universal subjective
mind, the particular thing which we desire as an already
existing fact.
19. We are thus thinking on the plane of the absolute and
eliminating all consideration of conditions or limitation
and are planting a seed which, if left undisturbed, will
finally germinate into external fruition.

I’ve been using the Desire for True Health & Wellness working from what I want (the end) back to now. I see it as accomplished and it is working. So I will continue studying the weekly lessons and apply what is needed for my Journey to TRUE HEALTH & LIBERTY.

Thank you to Mark & Davene for sharing your knowledge and the Team for caring about one another.

As you see, I created a block in my progress in blogging even tho I continued doing the reading and homework. Take time to recognize when you put up a block, identify why and remove it. I’ll be back with the following weeks. Week 12 was amazing for me.

Keep Growing & Sharing Your Journey.

7 Laws of the mind.

I make my notes on paper to read. Today I’m going to share the notes rather then take time to re-write.

Not quit sure how to write after the notes but you can see as I read this I have the colors & shapes as reminders.

The more I go through the weeks lessons I make adjustments. Sometimes I have to come back and re-evaluate.

Many times we want instant changes. Not is this world. However, when we hit that Breakthrough it is amazing.

Week 10 of Master Key

It’s 1-3-11 and I’m finally getting this info on my blog. I must say that as I read the assignment and do the steps each week I make written notes. I also add the colors & shapes at different points as I study the weeks reading.

There are many changes going on as I continue to study the Law of Attraction and apply the different ways of learning & remembering.

As I started page 1 of week 10 I thought of My Power of Intention. When I applied for this Scholarship #7 of the Rules for Scholarship  was to identify our Greatest Challenge.

I wrote: “My biggest challenge in my business right now is being consistent with follow up & remembering the steps needed to lead others as I continue on My Personal Wellness Journey. As you’ve read my post you’ve seen there are still some challenges that may not change for awhile that affect both of these. HOWEVER, the Challenges are getting easier to work with as I learn. Why?

Page 1 of week 10 teaches us by repetition:

Nothing happens without a definite cause. I CAN formulate my plans in accordance with exact knowledge. I CAN control any situation by bringing adequate causes into play. So as we’ve Learned : “I CAN BE WHAT I’VE WILLED TO BE.” A TRUE HEALTH & WELLNESS COACH ENJOYING LIBERTY.

1. I Choose to Control my Feelings or Emotions. I also Release,  Delete & Purge so I can fill in with the Positives.

2. I Choose to Think All Problems Through to the end. Like seeing the plant grow last week.

3. I choose to get down to the Bedrock facts, regardless of consequences. (I’m writing a book “Cultivating the Garden of My Mind” which I started before this course.

4. I Choose to Follow the Trail of Truth.  (Major Self Examination)

5. I Choose to Persist Until I Win.

I do have more thoughts on this weeks assignments so will come back and add to it.

Week 9 of Master Keys

Yes it’s Dec 31, 2010 and I’m still catching up.

If you read my post today on Persistence I think you’ll understand more why I’m behind & why this week’s info caught my attention.

Week 9 page 1 says: In this Part you may learn to fashion the tools by which you may build for yourself any condition you desire. If you wish to change conditions you must change yourself. Your whims, your wishes, your fancies, your ambitions may be thwarted at every step, but your inmost thoughts will find expression just as certainly as the plant springs from the seed.

On this MKMMA Team I can see many are working to Build a Business of different kinds to provide what they want out of life. I am doing the same. Enters the Challenge I’ve worked to overcome for 20 years. Physical, Emotional & Mental weaknesses.

I’ve been working on changing myself for several years. I didn’t start out in life with a healthy immune system. I’m going to be very honest here and say “I can’t agree with the part of the Law of Attraction that says we Attracted everything into our lives.” I was brought into this world by the decision of 2 teenagers who married to take care of a parent. Their choices those first years were not mine. Nor were they from Mature Adults. They were from kids trying the best they knew how to cope with life. From a sick angry grandmother.

Am I thankful for their choice? Yes, for without it I would not exist. Were all of their choices beneficial for my Wellness? No, however they couldn’t make choices on things they did not know.  I’m not writing this to Blame Them or hurt anyone. They couldn’t give what they didn’t have.

I do Believe that there Comes a Time when we Do Become Responsible for our Thoughts. With the right direction this can come at a very young age.For most it comes much later in life.

I have to say I was about 10 when I started realizing I COULD CHOOSE.  The Challenge then became how do I change the program of Illness I started out in life with?

I honestly didn’t know I could until about 20 years ago. My first Affirmation was “Every Day in Every Way I’m Getting Better & Better”. Then I read what Eleanor Roosevelt said:NO ONE CAN MAKE ME FEEL INFERIOR OR HURT ME WITHOUT MY CONSENT, IT’S NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY IT’S WHAT I SAY TO MYSELF WHEN THEY STOP TALKING.” I’ll share more on what I learned about this on another post.

I took from Scroll 2 and wrote it on the first part of Scroll 3 the thought:

I greet this day with Love in my heart for all. And most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which inter my body, mind, my soul & my heart.

I will cherish my body with cleanliness & moderation. I will uplift my mind with accurate knowledge & wisdom. I will feed my mind with meditation & prayer.

In reading the Master Key week 9 the Affirmation in paragraph 12: “I AM WHOLE, PERFECT, STRONG, POWERFUL, LOVING, HARMONIOUS & HAPPY” is very empowering. I read & re-read it. I have it on a Flash Card.

Par 17 -26 were of Great Interest to me.

17. He who has learned to bring the greatest spiritual
truths into touch with the so-called lesser things of life has
discovered the secret of the solution of his problem. One is
always quickened, made more thoughtful, by his nearness
of approach to great ideas, great events, great natural
objects, and great men. Lincoln is said to have begotten in
all who came near him the feeling awakened when one
approaches a mountain, and this sense asserts itself most
keenly when one comes to realize that he has laid hold
upon things that are eternal, the power of Truth.

18. It is sometimes an inspiration to hear from someone
who has actually put these principles to the test, someone
who has demonstrated them in their own life. A letter from
Frederick Andrews offers the following insight:
19. I was about thirteen years old when Dr. T. W. Marsee,
since passed over, said to my mother: “There is no possible
chance, Mrs. Andrews. I lost my little boy the same way,
after doing everything for him that it was possible to do. I
have made a special study of these cases, and I know there
is no possible chance for him to get well.”
20. She turned to him and said: “Doctor, what would you
do if he were your boy?” and he answered, “I would fight,
fight, as long as there is a breath of life to fight for.”
21. That was the beginning of a long drawn-out battle, with
many ups and downs, the doctors all agreeing that there
was no chance for a cure, though they encouraged and
cheered us the best they could.
22. But at last the victory came, and I have grown from a
little, crooked, twisted, cripple, going about on my hands
and knees, to a strong, straight, well formed man.
23. Now, I know you want the formula, and I will give it to
you as briefly and quickly as I can.
24. I built up an affirmation for myself, taking the qualities
I most needed, and affirming for myself over and over
again, “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving,
harmonious and happy.” I kept up this affirmation, always
the same, never varying, till I could wake up in the night
and find myself repeating, “I am whole, perfect, strong,
powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.” It was the last
thing on my lips at night and the first thing in the morning.

25. Not only did I affirm it for myself, but for others that I
knew needed it. I want to emphasize this point. Whatever
you desire for yourself, affirm it for others, and it will help
you both. We reap what we sow. If we send out thoughts of
love and health, they return to us like bread cast upon the
waters; but if we send out thoughts of fear, worry,
jealousy, anger, hate, etc., we will reap the results in our
own lives.
26. It used to be said that man is completely built over
every seven years, but some scientists now declare that we
build ourselves over entirely every eleven months; so we
are really only eleven months old. If we build the defects
back into our bodies year after year, we have no one to
blame but ourselves.
27. Man is the sum total of his own thoughts; so the
question is, how are we going to entertain only the good
thoughts and reject the evil ones? At first we can’t keep the
evil thoughts from coming, but we can keep from
entertaining them. The only way to do this is to forget them
— which means, get something for them. This is where the
ready-made affirmation comes into play.

It doesn’t say how long it took Fredrick Anderson to become a strong, straight, well formed man but it does say it was a long struggle. I tried to find out more online but couldn’t.

I’ve been rebuilding cells in my body & mind for 20 years. Now I see I can rebuild in 11 months. I’ve also been using a Special Technique to Release, Delete & Purge the negatives from My Body, Mind & Spirit now for 4 years. You can see and example on my personal website http://www.staystronginc.com tab Re-Design to Win in 2010.

Tomorrow begins a New Year. No I’m not one for New Years Resolutions. However, “I WILL PERSIST UNTIL I SUCCEED.”

So here is My Intention: To put to use all I’ve learned and REBUILD MY BODY, MIND & SPIRIT over the next 12 months.

As I work to do this I will be Working as a TRUE HEALTH & WELLNESS COACH sharing what I know works. I’ll work in Balance with the Healing Process as I Build my Gano Team, Share Comf5 Tools and Market My Re-Design Program. This will give me the Liberty & Financial Freedom I Desire.

You’ll see this Theme in most of my posts. I look forward to your comments & feedback.

I take time each week to really study the assignments the same way I’ve studied the scriptures since I was 8 years old. Some of what I read fits with my scriptural beliefs some doesn’t. I will work in Harmony with this Team in Sharing What I Do Understand & Believe to be beneficial.

Thank you for Sharing this Amazing Journey with me.

Regarding Persistence.

Mark ask us to watch this video with DJ Gregory and see the habits creating Persistence.  Did you watch it? Here is the link to copy and paste until I remember how to put it in right.

http://vodpod.com/watch/1165857-walk-on-dj-gregory-espn-video

If I wasn’t developing these 4 habits you wouldn’t be reading my blog. I will Persist until I WIN regardless of many challenges.

I’ll share how I saw DJ Gregory use these habits as well as my own use. I copied and pasted Marks in Black. Gregory in Red & mine in Blue as a True Health & Wellness Coach.

HABIT 1

A DEFINITE PURPOSE BACKED BY BURNING DESIRE FOR ITS FULFILLMENT.

This is not the usual ‘why’ you want to succeed.  It is about something much more….understanding who you truly are and allowing yourself to confess to yourself who you really are, what you really want…..fuggettabut what others want for you, your family, what society says you should want…..what is your purpose being on the planet and how will succeeding fill your heart’s desire……that desire you don’t let anyone know about…….and once you get it ……how will you feel, how will it benefit others……in essence how will it change your world and how will that positively affect the worlds of the folks in your life and beyond be affected?

Easy…….simple……just tell yourself the truth…..write it down and commit…..need more help? Here is the chapter about Desire

DJ Gregory found something he could do and attached as much emotion to it as possible. He didn’t work on Perfection but POSSIBILITIES. He was willing to go Public even though others would See his Struggle.

HABIT 2

A DEFINITE PLAN, EXPRESSED IN CONTINUOUS ACTION.

A Desire without a written plan…..detailed ……weekly…… is nothing more than a wish.  Continuous action is the key…..surfing the web is not action.  Contacting prospects is.

DJ was willing to crawl as often as he had to to be able to walk.

HABIT 3

A MIND CLOSED TIGHTLY AGAINST ALL NEGATIVE AND DISCOURAGING INFLUENCES, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances.

We always hear about being open minded…..but there is a time and a season from everything and once we understand this we’ve got to have a closed mind …..to negative thought, to looking at other deals, to distractions …..to everything except the point where transactions that advance the Definite of Purpose is the only thing we do when we are doing business.

Starting with his Parents who didn’t listen to the Drs saying he would spend his life in a wheel chair. They encouraged him. They didn’t baby him with their love & concern. They Empowered them with their Love & Concern. They Supported his Dream & Goal even though they knew it would be difficult at times.

HABIT 4.

A FRIENDLY ALLIANCE WITH ONE OR MORE PERSONS WHO WILL ENCOURAGE ONE TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH BOTH PLAN AND PURPOSE.

No master mind alliance, no success.  Period.

A master mind alliance is not a conference call where you bounce ideas around……an MMA…..Master Mind Alliance is created by you with mission statement and the core of that mission statement is for you to obtain your definite major purpose. Period.  Here is the only way it works.

The MMA you form is actually part of an organized plan.  It’s not an option.

Working in harmony, not mere cooperation, is not only easy but uplifting and will provide the ideas that are solutions to any and all problems.

I would say his first and most Powerful Master Mind was with his Parents. Then with a few Leaders in the Sport he learned to Love. He earned the respect from the Professionals in his field. I’m sure his Determination & Commitment to his Dream & Goal Encouraged Most of those he met.

THE PAYOFF

4 little, easy habits…….with a massive payoff in addition to the development of persistence.

Here is what Hill wrote and I have experienced when I adhere to this simple formula:

“These four steps are essential for success in all walks of life. The entire purpose of the thirteen principles of this philosophy is to enable one to take these four steps as a matter of habit.   These are the steps by which one may control one’s economic destiny.  They are the steps that lead to freedom and independence of thought.  They are the steps that lead to riches, in small or great quantities.  They lead the way to power, fame, and worldly recognition.  They are the four steps which guarantee favorable “breaks.”  They are the steps that convert dreams into physical realities.

They lead, also, to the mastery of FEAR, DISCOURAGEMENT, INDIFFERENCE.

There is a magnificent reward for all who learn to take these four steps. It is the privilege of writing one’s own ticket, and of making Life yield whatever price is asked.”

How I have and I’m applying these habits with more Intention.

HABIT 1

A DEFINITE PURPOSE BACKED BY BURNING DESIRE FOR ITS FULFILLMENT.

At age 15 I had Viral Encephalitis which went untreated until I almost lost my life. I had a Desire to be a missionary. This left me with what some call Coma Seizures. This did damage to the frontal lobe of my brain. Still affects the recall & memory.

I had a Desire to be there for my family. In 1985 the Dr prescribed an electric wheel chair to conserve my energy as I dealt with MS. I chose to pin my sweats to my socks and lift my legs with assistance of family and a walker. I didn’t want to loose my legs. Many I’ve talked to did just the opposite and are still in the wheel chair.

In 1990 the Drs gave me weeks to live due to an enlarged liver. My Desire was to LIVE. I looked at alternatives. Changed my liver & changes the MS.

********Today My Desire is To BE A TRUE HEALTH & WELLNESS COACH sharing with others what I KNOW WORKS. I’m working for Liberty as well as Financial Freedom.

Habit 2     DEFINITE PLAN, EXPRESSED IN CONTINUOUS ACTION.

I have my Plan of Action with My Gano Team. It is written down, we are Diamondairs. We work together at scheduled times on the phone. True Health & Wellness Coach with the Best Nutrition. Liberty & Financial Freedom. I have my Own Stress Release Program to Market within the next 2 months.

HABIT 3

A MIND CLOSED TIGHTLY AGAINST ALL NEGATIVE AND DISCOURAGING INFLUENCES, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances.

It is still easier for family and friends to see the challenges and say “You don’t have to do this. You can get disability. Hubby still see’s the disease rather then the progress at times. He wants to protect me. I know “I CAN BE WHAT I’VE WILLED TO BE”…… A TRUE HEALTH & WELLNESS COACH. I WILL CONTINUE TO PERSIST & WIN!!!!!”

HABIT 4.

A FRIENDLY ALLIANCE WITH ONE OR MORE PERSONS WHO WILL ENCOURAGE ONE TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH BOTH PLAN AND PURPOSE.

I have 3 on My Gano Master Mind and 2 on my Coaching Team. I do need to finish the mission statement.

So with Visualization, Intention, Practice, and yes Persistence I will Strengthen these 4 habits to WIN in 2010 leading me right into 2011 and beyond.

TO HEALTH & WELLNESS FOR ALL.

Week 11 with MKMMA Class Review

Today I took a few minutes to review my other posts. I’ll be back with specifics on Master Key 10 & 11. Right now I’d just like to review from last night.

When I started this Course my major reason was to Learn Better Ways to BE the Wellness Coach I’ve Chosen to Be. I wanted to Learn Ways to Be Consistent. I now Know That I Know that My Pivotal Needs are; True Health & Liberty. They each have Very Special meaning to me, my family & the lives of those I Coach.

You can’t Teach or Coach what you don’t know or are unable to do. Scroll 3 says eliminate some words. How, by The Law of Substitution. Gaining Knowledge of the How and Applying it until I form the HABIT.

I’ll be very honest here. IT HAS NOT BEEN EASY for the most part. Last night one thing made it easier for my. The Example of Sally. We were give the choice to Start Over with our Chore or Service Card. Why was that important to me?

I didn’t start out with Simple things I knew I could accomplish. I put down projects that had several variables. Then when I would re-read..”I PROMISE TO……I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES…Signed O. Darlene Wood I would see which project I didn’t get done. I knew how to Release, Delete & Purge the Negative Thought Pattern but re-reading it every day was a reminder of being BEHIND.

So as Scroll 1 says: TODAY I BEGIN A NEW LIFE

Scroll 2 says: I GREET THIS DAY WITH LOVE IN MY HEART & FORGIVENESS

Scroll 3 says: I WILL PERSIST UNTIL I SUCCEED

I PROMISE TO: Reevaluate my Service card & re-schedule to win by Dec 11-2010    THIS I KNOW I CAN DO!!!

Last night Mark & Davene talked about SELF CONFIDENCE being connected to Our CHARACTER. Also how we are affected when we Give Our WORD & KEEP IT. Working with multiple health challenges along with trying to meet requirements of others over the years has not made it easy to Keep My Word. To BE a TRUE HEATH & WELLNESS COACH I know how important this is.

Week 9 “I AM WHOLE, PERFECT,STRONG, POWERFUL,LOVING,HARMONIOUS & HAPPY” really fit with what I’ve already been working to be. I’ve worked on this for 20 years. If I had not I would still be in a wheel chair or not alive at all. This past 6weeks I’ve had 1 or 2 seizures almost every day. These make my body move in slow motion for a couple hours and affect my short term memory as well. By reading my DMP & Flash cards I have been able to lesson the severity of each episode. For this I am Very Thankful. One day they will be gone altogether.

I share this part not for pity from others but to help others see that THEY TOO CAN GET BETTER EVERYDAY if THEY MAKE A CHOICE, A DECISION TO DO WHAT EVER IT TAKES.

Thank you for letting me share today.

I AM WHOLE, PERFECT, STRONG, POWEFUL, LOVING, HARMONIOUS, HAPPY, SUCCESSFUL, FINANCIALLY FREE & I’M ENJOYING TRUE HEALTH & LIBERTY.

I AFFIRM THIS FOR MYSELF & ALL WHO I MEET OR WHO EVER TAKES THE TIME TO READ THIS.

Agape’ O. Darlene Wood
