Week 24 "Never Give up, Never Surrender"

The end of the class and the beginning of a new life!
I have been contemplating deeply this week as I have been reading the last  Master Keys chapter and I have come to the conclusion that the Hero's Journey is not a one time adventure but rather a trip to be taken many times over in the course of ones life.  My first journey began in High School with the lead in the school play, student government and sports.  I began another with college and living in another country for two years proselyting.   On my return I began yet another with marriage and family and career responsibilities.  Each adventure cultivates the desire for yet another journey and more growth and so now I have begun another more introspective, deeply challenging adventure with the Master Keys Master Mind alliance and have acquired the key to all personal achievement.  That key is the realization that I have always had the key; I am in control of the outcome of my present and future.  Hanell states 24:  4  "The whole range then of the theory and practice of any system of metaphysics consists in knowing the Truth concerning yourself and the world in which you live; in knowing that in order to express harmony, you must think harmony; in order to express health you must think health; and in order to express abundance you must think abundance; to do this you must reverse the evidence of the senses.  5. When you come to know that every form of disease, sickness, lack and limitation are simply the result of wrong thinking, you will have come to know "the Truth
which shall make you free." You will see how mountains may be removed. If these mountains consist only of doubt, fear, distrust or other forms of discouragement, they are none the less real, and they need not only to be removed but to be "cast into the sea." 6. Your real work consists in convincing yourself of the truth of these statements. When you have succeeded in doing this you will have no difficulty in thinking the
truth, and as has been shown, the truth contains a vital principle and will manifest itself."

In the play Henry V, "the battle of As-encore" just as the French are attacking, the king boldly states "all things are ready, if our minds be so."  That's the core of this training.  To control our minds!  The greater the faith I have in becoming the real me - the person God intended me to become - the more happy and fulfilled I am.  I am God's greatest creation and I can fulfill the measure of my creation and find contentment, peace and bliss by becoming that person.  One journey ends and another begins; there is no end to the adventure of becoming because to quit at one plateau means you miss the next higher one on the horizon...  the one that lets you see farther, breath cleaner air, and improves you climbing abilities.    The grass isn't greener on the other side, the side the world says is the path to follow, the way to happiness and success;  dog eat dog or just as bad - sloth.  No I prefer the road less traveled and that has made all the difference.  In the battle to conquer self, it's once more into the breach... for I have not yet begun to fight for the real me.  In the movie Galaxy Quest the reoccurring theme is Never give up... Never Surrender.  that's the plan for me... I have obtained all of my DMP statements with varying degrees of success during this course except the last one which I put for October 2015 and I know that as all conditions are thought creations and therefore any lack simply is due to  mental conditions in which the person fails to perceive the truth.  I will forever seek the truth.
Thank you MKMMA.

Week 23 Self Assessment Test

Here we are almost at the end of the course but the beginning of a new chapter in my life.  At the beginning of this Master Key program we all took a self assessment test to see where we were in controlling our own destiny.  We took the test again this week and after completing it I was amazed at how much change there was. I haven't really thought about it but when I saw the results there it was... I have grown and become more of the person I desire to be.  I realize that this too is just the beginning because now I have the understanding and the tools to do anything.  What are those tools...  success is found in SERVICE and CONCENTRATED THOUGHT found in SILENCE.  I have learned not to go forward is to go backward and one moves forward with faith.  I now understand the meaning, breadth, depth and consequences of fear in my life.  I have always feared that I would never get to be somebody... SOOO  I manifested in my life exactly that...   In high school I was a V.P. on the student counsel, not president, I was the lead in the school play but didn't get to kiss the girl, I learned a foreign language very quickly but lost it just as quickly when I stopped using it, I got the job of my dreams but have never been promoted to  higher administrative positions, I have run my own businesses successfully but never made the big money.  Now I know that I AM somebody - I ran the student counsel and made the president look good, I was the lead in the school play and kissed the girl I wanted to - and married  her, I became fluent in a foreign language,  I do have the job of my dreams and I love it, and I have run successful businesses that have blessed the lives of many people.  WOW!  I Am happy because I realized that any permanent satisfaction in life is not found in anything physical.  I will no longer throw away today hoping for success tomorrow for true joy is found in every moment of life.  I Am an adventurous, charismatic, powerful, loving, spirit directed, furtively wealthy man who lives the law of least effort by practicing acceptance, responsibility and defenselessness.   I have always had all I ever wanted and didn't realize it until this course.  Thank you MKMMA.  What a ride!

Week 22B I feel good, I feel great, I feel wonderful...

I didn't realize that this week was a No-Webinar-Week until I tried to get on...  Which was great!  the reading was Thoreau and to be honest I haven't figured it out yet.   I have had a lot of things to think about and catch up on and in doing so I finally understood / felt NARC!  I think?

I have been pondering on "THE ONE THING" that will fuel my emotions to change the old blue - print and get me to the next level and I have been doing some weeding out of unnecessary things and feeling miserable. Well I decided that when I finished my regular drill (getting my work done, reading, sit, 3 gratitude's, positive journal experience sentence, service, exercise) I decided to reward myself.  The one thing I really love and have been grumpy w/o has been movies.  I would own a movie theater if my wife would let me but she knows I would never leave... so anyway I allowed myself to watch a movie this week and I have felt great.  I was so excited to watch that I had a great time doing the requirements now am starting to love, and spend more time w/ those requirements because I want to - they have become habit but are now so much more than a chore -  and the reward of watching a movie now and then has been WONDERFUL!    I'm happier, less stressed, and am more excited about doing the things that fuel my DMP.

I have also overcome some of the guilt / uneasy feelings I've had about wanting money... I finally found a way to go after my DMP goal w/o compromising any personal values or standards and that has also relieved me of anxiety.  Og was right, I make my own weather.  I can be the master of my emotions and now having a clear and defined road knowing that it is the right one for me has made all the difference.  I feel good, I feel great, I feel wonderful...

Week 22 The Sounds of Silence

This week we were to find hours if not days to be totally silent...  I was so excited to go for it because my life is filled with noise.  for years we have called our home the "house of noise".   I have have 7 children, four still in the home - two in grade school, one a High School senior, one in college all of which bring their friends over as well as my aging mother who lives with us so I can care for her, four grandchildren who visit OFTEN, a wife finishing her degree and two dogs all in a 1200 sq. foot home.  The thought of just being still sounds great!  It's just not easily accomplished and being a man who always keeps his promises and having already scheduled my week before the webcast (Fri OATS) - I was only able to spend several hours at a time on a couple of days in total solitude...  I am working out my calendar to give me more opportunities to be quiet in longer periods of time this coming week.  However I did stop all radio, music, t.v. and any unnecessary talking or noise all week long and it was great.  I have been studying meditation and so this has been a double wammy for me.

I learned through the silence to be a better listener!  The sound of the wind, the rain hitting the windows, the breathing of the dog was always there, but I had never really listened to it.  I realized that I had never really listened to other things as well like - my daughter singing in her bedroom playing with dolls;  I always heard her but never listened to the words she was singing.... very insightful!  I learned to not be in a hurry to answer questions of solve everyone's problems...  I fell asleep.  I learned to follow impressions of thought from threads to tapestries.  I fell asleep.  I learned to be more gentle with others and myself.  I became more even tempered.  I fell asleep.  I lost track of time.  Some times my thoughts were focused and others I let my thoughts wonder where they would.  It was fun and invigorating and I'm excited to plan more time in the future to be alone with my thoughts.  What will I learn tomorrow!

I was also deeply interested in what Mark said about picking the ONE THING and focusing on it!  So while in my quiet time I redid the assessment where I took the five or so things in my DMP and numbered them and ranked them with each other and re-committed myself to the #1 item.  I'm waking up and going to make some real noise!

Week 21 Wherever you go - That's where you are

I have loved the reading in Hanell this week.  It seems if everything is coming together for me.  I get how there are natural laws that govern the universe and so of course there are spiritual laws as well.  When one understands that there are irrevocable laws in heaven and that all blessings are predicated upon obedience to those laws one only has to follow the law to receive the promised blessings.  Now we are beginning to know how to use these laws to bless the lives of others as well as ourselves.  THINK GOOD THOUGHTS!  We can change all outward conditions by changing our thoughts.  For example, I spent the bulk of this week in the hospital with my aging mother - I didn't want to be there and I know she certainly didn't want to be there - nevertheless we were there and the only thing to do was to make the best of it for her, myself and all those around us.  I emulated love for all the nurses and doctors, meditated when waiting (did a lot of meditating) prayed to make the right decisions for mom and after many, many hours, mom is receiving the help she needs and it was a wonderful experience.  Going through the refiners fire and testing oneself in the crucible of life chips off that old cement and reveals the glorious person inside.   Remember - wherever you go..... that's where you are!  Might as well enjoy the journey and make the most of each moment or as Og stated, "Live this day as if it is your last."  Make it into your greatest monument to who you are and what you can yet become!  Use every second to become the person you dream to become.

Week 20 Follow the yellow brick road...

"Procrastination I destroy with action;  Doubt I bury under faith:  Fear I dismember with confidence."  Og...

This week has been an interesting week for me in my quest for discovery... It finally dawned on me what moving the goal posts meant and I realized that is how I have lived my whole life, never really getting to Oz. I have always enjoyed the journey but have never arrived, I realized that I have kept my promises and that I have met all but one of my DMP statements yet have never really felt I was the person I really wanted to be.  I remembered also the powerful feelings and unveiling I had when doing the 50 min recitation of my one sentence summary of my DMP...  I realized that I was all those things I desired already, I had only to claim them... God did create me on purpose, with purpose, for a purpose.  The flying monkeys in my way is my last DMP which has to do with obtaining a monetary amount and although I have conquered all previous benchmarks I struggle believing in this one...  WHY?  It it the fear of the unknown that holds me back.  I have to let go to really be free...   Hanell stated. "Thought precedes and predetermines action;  action precedes and predetermines condition."

I know it is my thoughts and the old blueprint that is holding me back.  So I have doubled my efforts in meditation and am doing what Hanell suggested in that "in order to secure the larger supply your demand must be increased!" I am increasing the demand by supercharging my feelings  and emotions with my desire.  Hanell also stated "Thought is creative vibration and the quality of the conditions crated will depend upon the quality of our thought, because we cannot express powers which we do not possess.  We must "be" before we can "do" and we can "do" only to the extent to which we "are,"  and so what we do will necessarily coincide with what we "are" and what we are depends upon  what we think."  I realized that if I can't be somebody without riches, I will never be anything with them.  Therefore, I need to continue with the drill and serve more, continue meditating, exercise, find things to be grateful for, flash the cards, do the readings with enthuasiasm, and write a sentence of a positive experience every day while continuing to emotionalize my goal.  I also did the assessment where I took the things that will drive my success and ranked them and made my priority list and am following that with vigor.  I have a plan and a purpose, my yellow brick path is set - I Am destroying procrastination with action,  I Am burying my doubt with faith and I Am dismembering my fear with confidence and I Am able -  and in time going to reach the end-zone.  I always keep my promises.

Week 19 To Infinity and Beyond

This week has been great - there hasn't been a lot of distractions to deal with or my ability to deal with them has improved.  Either way I had an insight that I'm going to follow.  I feel I have been scattered in trying to focus my meditations and thoughts on several different things in my DMP.  So I decided to focus on one at a time until I manifest it and then move to the next one.  It seems to be working in that I focused solely on filling my tour this week.  I listened to a story about a man who was in the running for the "salesman of the year" award and the prize was a new car.  So he flew in to the announcement banquet 1st class - one way knowing he would win the car and drive it home.  AND HE DID.  Well in that same spirit I had arranged group air and went ahead and paid for an extra 10 seats knowing I would fill them and have been able to recruit all but three people.... and I have leads on twice that many who are interested in coming.  WOW! Once the tour is full, I will begin to "KEY" my next DMP with the closest completion date... my game.

I also realized that I need more practice / concentration and intensity with my meditation - and by chance I found and followed a pop up link to a really cool meditation program and I'm thinking about purchasing.  I would have thought the ideas expressed in this particular companies sales pitch were hooey if I hadn't been studying and practicing and seeing the real benefits of meditation from this class.   It's amazing and really is the KEY to the vault of all our dreams.  I know it works, I just need to be  more focused and with practice I know that there is nothing that I cannot achieve...

"The dye has been cast! I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made; I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow down, or be still.  My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I'm finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tainted visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, plaudits or popularity. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk with patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor with power. My face is set, my gait is fast, and my goal is Heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear! I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won't give up, shut up, or let up, until I have stayed up stored up, and paid up for the cause of Christ. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He returns for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner will be clear."  
                                     The Fellowship of the Unashamed by Dr. Bob Moorhead, Words Aptly spoken.

"I shall no longer ask myself it this is expedient, but only if it is right, I shall do this not because I am noble or unselfish, but because I need for the rest of my journey, a star that will not play false to me, a compass that will not lie.  I am no longer able to aspire to the highest with one part of myself and to deny it with another."
                                                                                                Cry the Beloved Country by Alan Paton, 

I am on my way to Infinity and Beyond!

Week 18 Knock Knock...

Knock Knock...
Who's there?

Wow - the lights are on and somebody's home... I AM
I man walked into a bar...  the guy behind ducked...  I AM that man who got hit in the head!  It was right there in front of me the whole time and finally it registered - sunk in.

As part of this weeks assignment I watched the documentary called "I AM".  I AM certain that if I hadn't been reading Hannell daily, sitting and pondering, constantly deciding  that which is my true Dharma or bliss, lookng for the characteristics in others that I wanted to acquire...  that I would have never understood or been ready to receive the overpowering lesson in that video. " What is wrong with the world?  I AM.   What is right with the world?  I AM.  It was as though I had been walking in a dream and finally woke up to the reality all around me.  AND THERE IT WAS - the realization that  I AM the master of my fate... I AM the cause and not the effect in my life...  I AM God's greatest creation;  I AM able to make this day the best day of my life.  All I had been struggling to understand and the bliss I was seeking for in life was that I wanted to matter...  I want to make a difference...  to be an influence for good in the universe... and I AM! 

When Moses asked the God of the Old Testament - Jehovah, what His name was so he could tell the Israelites' who had sent him... the reply was I AM that I AM.  Literally translated - the self existing one - He who is, was, and forever will be...   the past - the present - and the future; or in Hebrew - TRUTH = that which is the same today, yesterday and forever.  And I know the truth...  I can glorify God every moment of my life with every breath I take.

This is the best day of my life.

O me! O life!...  of the questions of these recurring;  of the endless trains of the faithless...  of cities filled with the foolish;  what good amid these, O me, O life?"  ANSWER.  That you are here - that life exists, and IDENTITY;  that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse....  That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse.  WHAT WILL YOUR VERSE BE?   Whitman.

And I Answer...
O me! O life!...   of the questions of these recurring (where did I come from?, why am I here? and where am I going?);  of the endless trains of the faithless... (the all consuming lie that those with things matter and those w/o don't) of cities filled with the foolish (The masses endlessly seeking for possessions believing that things are what supposedly make one happy);  what good amid these, O me, O life?"  ANSWER.  That you are here (that I AM important!  My presence can influence all those around me like ripples in a pond)  - that life exists (that I AM here at this time, in this place for a purpose - that it is not an accident that I AM where I AM, When I AM, and who I AM... All part of the divine arithmetic of God to bless His children on earth) and IDENTITY (I AM natures greatest miracle - no one is exactly like me );  that the powerful play goes on (God's plan of Salvation for His children) and you may contribute a verse (Become instruments in the hands of God for the happiness and salvation of His children) ....  That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse.  WHAT WILL YOUR VERSE BE?  
Answer...  I can be what I will to be... and I will to be All that God want's me to become...  and I AM - everyday I AM better than I was the day before.  Today is the last day of my life for every morning I AM born again, a new person that can influence the universe around me... a better person than the man I was yesterday.  For the last four months of this course I have been acquiring the habits to allow the real me to come out...  "to avoid the with fury the killers of time.  Procrastination I destroy with action;  doubt I bury under faith; fear I dismember with confidence.  I am a man of love and today is my chance to prove my love and my greatness"... Og.  I realize that the previous years of my life were necessary  for had I not been the man I was, I would not be the person I AM today.  What a great ride. 
Knock Knock...
Who's there?
I AM - what I will to be ---  And now I know what I will to be and I AM unstoppable!

Week 17 B? In Harmony

WOW - what a week.  After the video conference on Sunday I really had to step back to make sure I was "ALL IN" with this grand experiment.  "WHAT WAS I PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?"  i haven't been perfect in all my attempts but I have internalized the RED PENCIL idea and I'm not getting too worked up about not being in exact formation... yet I desire this with every fiber of my being and if I don't make the effort now, when do I think I ever would???  
I had already made more 3X5 cards than required, ( I have a stack by my bead, in the bathroom, on my desk at work, and I carry the big important ones in my shirt pocket) and I look at them throughout the day, I say Do It Now 25X several times a day (whenever I get in the car), I say "I am what I will to be" 25X several times a day and even added what I will to be from my DMP at the end of each statement, I am doing the sit and finding more time to be alone, I am reading Og and my DMP 3x a day w/ enthusiasm, I am reading my movie trailer mixed in w/ my cards, I am reading the Master Keys assignment every night before bedtime, I am doing my secret acts of service, doing the daily Franklin experiment -  looking for daily qualities I want to have and marking them on the chart, It took me a couple of days to find a paper w/ the obituaries in them - ich;  I',m planning a funeral for my old self and I am going to make my kids speak...  which I think will be fun;  I have my posters all over the house and touch the colors when I work out and think of the goal statements, I'm in the community w/ my kindness observations every day, I'm doing the blog; I visit the blog of other members and respond,  I watch the video, the webcast, keep up my service card, read the Blue print builder every night as well as the man in the glass - say I love you to myself, study the 7 laws of the mind, read my press release several times a week, read the giving and receiving card daily; am a constant observer;  keeping the mental diet so that whenever I say anything un-toward I get a literal jolt and stop!;  I have pretty much quit t.v. and I am reading books looking for the qualities I desire to acquire;   I  have created a MMA with another member and am working on my game;  I schedule dates w/ wife and family members ... I dive into each chapter and try to NARC it all.  For example, after scroll marked 4 I have begun to wear loud socks to remind me and proclaim my uniqueness, I carry a compass, I also have a puzzle piece in every pants pocket so I am reminded to put all the pieces of my life together, I wear a blue wrist band to remind me to meditate - and be calm; and I continually tweek and re-word my DMP so I capture my real heart felt desires... I have committed myself to never quit and that it is all worth the effort and ALL OF THAT has become second nature.  But........
Pondering this question has been the knock out punch for me!
I know that I committed to a new and better life...
That I am becoming a better loving person, the one I always wanted to be;
I am happier, working on being healthier;
I've committed to persist...
I believe that I am natures greatest creation...
I'm experimenting with mentally creating my day each morning around my DMP and then analyzing my progress at the end of each day.

THEN IT HIT ME...  I realized that the one thing I am still struggling with is the monetary amount I am seeking so as to finally be FREE.  I realized that I needed to know and believe w/ all my soul that I already am ABUNDANT and FREE.  I need to stop pretending it will happen and know that it will... to realize that I will find the answers to succeed.  I need to know that I already have sufficient for my needs now and that any extra I have or will have is for sharing with others - which will fulfill all my wants in my DMP.  I know that I have just been PRETENDING and saying that dollar amount of profit from my game in my DMP w/o really expecting or totally believing  it will come true.  I realize that I have to exercise total faith in the idea found in the blue print builder that the dominating thoughts of my mind eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transfer themselves into physical reality and that through the principle of auto suggestion any desire that I persistently hold in my mind eventually seeks expression!  I had created the very obstacle to reaching my ultimate goal by how I felt deep inside.  Oh I can imagine how great it will be and can actually feel the joy of having liberty but I realize that I was just pretending that it would actually happen to me.  I get that I need to be in HARMONY W/ MYSELF as well as with the MKMMA team.
I had missed the biggest point in the whole process.... The statement "I AM WHAT I WILL TO BE" needs to be authentic!  I'm starting over with real intent and faith that the laws of the mind are working for me.

Week 17 These are the times...

Thomas Paine wrote
"These are the times that try men's souls;  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it NOW, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.  Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; -- Tis dearness only that gives every thing its value.  Heaven knows how to set a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated."
The American Crisis I, Dec 19, 1776

This quote came to my mind all week as I struggled through the barriers of reaching my final statements in my DMP.  Mark said in his week 16 video that during these weeks most participants lose momentum or DRIFT... and after hearing that I'm afraid it may have been a self fulfilling prophecy!  Everything was an uphill battle.  I got sick, people cancelled there place in my tour, the individual who came to meet me from Florida about my game wasn't interested, my meditation time was always interrupted etc, etc.  Anyway, I am so excited for  the next web cast - they always jazz me up yet I realize that changing a 50 year blueprint is not easy or going to happen overnight.  It is worth the fight and I'm not fooling myself anymore with being satisfied with the old me... "for my final reward will be heartache and tears if I'VE cheated that man in the glass."  My family has already noticed a big difference in my countenance and persona...  I am a better person that I ever was and the reality that I can become so much more is worth fighting for.  I am fueled with intensity and self confidence in order to concentrate all the energy of my mind to "BE" a celestial person.  That is my persistent desire and most intense longing of my heart.  My thoughts fired with emotions will break the cement "tyranny" of my old self and bring freedom to my soul.  That is definitely worth the fight and I will not shrink my duty to my God, myself, my family, and all those whom I can bless in this world.  I will persist until l I succeed for I am natures greatest miracle - a child of God with unlimited potential - a luminous being of light temporally trapped in a mortal body waiting to escape and express my true potential which cannot happen if it has not been earned.  I have felt the divine spark kindle into a fire within to become better than I become a mountain, not a ant hill...  I can give more!

Thomas Paine added;
"... my secret opinion has ever been, and still is, that God Almighty will not give up a people to military destruction, or leave them un-supportedly to perish...."
I know that my greatest battles lied ahead and I will triumph in these trying times because I believe God will help me become what He wants me to be!

week 16 Go the Distance

Agaian amazing things are happening.  For example, my game mastermind had determined to talk to a certain individual in Florida about helping with my game and when we called to schedule a visit he told us he was already coming to Utah andwouldschedule a meeting w/ us next week.  OOOOOhhh.  That is so cool.  I completed a DMP for my mastermind and we are building the alliance.  I am so excited.  Ialso realized that i need to make a more detailed "working Plan of Action" for my smart goals in the true health part of my DMP.  I wrote that "on or B4 Feb 28, 2014 I always make healthy choices....  well knowing that I had until Feb 28th I kept fudgeing so I made step by step statements to eliminate candy, soda, chips etc. Etc. So by the time I hit the 28th I wont be going through withdrawls that could kill me.  I have been exercising and wieghed myself this morning and am two pounds under my goal.  THIS IS SO AWSOME.
Things are becoming easier to do and I know I have delveloped the target habbit Mark was gunning for with our reading and touching the shapes, working out, the sit etc, as well as many of my goals I set for myself in my PPN of Ture Spirituality. I feel I am becoming and have begun to re-write my DMP for higher / loftier steps.  THIS REALLY DOES WORK and I am so excited for the fulfillment of the rest of my press release.  I know know I can key anything and w/ the right amount of mental and physical effort I can achieve anything.  I am on my way, I CAN go the distance ... where there's a heros welcome right where I belong.

Week 15 Only the half mad are wholly alive!

This has been a great week for me in my Master Key, Master Mind journey.  I have had a lot of progress in insights and ideas while doing my meditation on INSIGHT.  This last chapter of Hannell has really exploded for me and I have found connections and correlations with the reading and my life.  I keep refining my DMP and getting closer and closer to my true desires and am able to more clearly focus in on who I am and who I desire to be.  I have also related to the latest chapter in Mandino where he states, "Within me burns a flame ... and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better than I am, and I will." I really feel it and I believe that every day I get closer to EDUCING  or to draw out my real talents and abilities.  To discover who I really can be.  Not only have I begun to do the Ben Franklin makeover in looking for qualities in others that I want to improve in but I have found books that highlight individuals from history who I can identify with as well.  I am filling my mind and life with the person I desire to be. I've become more outgoing, more charismatic, more friendly, more sociable, more LOVING with everyone in my life and I love it.  People may think I'm a little crazy but you know what they say.... "ONLY THE HALF MAD ARE WHOLLY ALIVE."  Besides, my favorite uncle was always the crazy one.

Week 14 "Oh I just can't wait to be king"

This week I have been laid up in bed with a bad back and I have had a lot of time to think and ponder... I realize from "the master Key part 14 that the law of growth works in direct proportion to the depth of feeling characterizing the thought and the intensity that I give it.  That is what made me think of the song in the Lion King, Oh I just can't wait to be king!

I want my DMP so badly and the feelings I have when I think of throwing that all away is devastating.  I'm trying to apply the NARC idea to eating right, working out, skipping T.V. building my game etc. etc.  I love the part in Og that states I will no longer make vain attempts to imitate others...Instead I will place my uniqueness on display. SO... I went to the store and bought bright, multi colored, crazy socks and I wear these to remind me that I am rare and of great value and the best I can be is to be me and accent my differences.  A reminder that I have unlimited potential and I am here for a purpose which is to bless the lives of others.  This the principle that stuck out to me in the movie Cool Runnings.  I loved the part when they realized that the best they could be was Jamaican and to do bobsledding the Jamaican way!They had a DMP to get to the olympics, a plan of action, positive mental attitude and most of all became unified through the experience.  This was a startling realization - for I had been meditating on HARMONY all week and there it was big as life and the key to their success in the movie.

I desire  my future  so badly but I still have 1% doubt that MKMMA will work.  I know that this small concern can kill my progress.  #26 of chapter 14 states that 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 and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking... so I am disciplining my mental attitude to erase all doubt.  I think what I need to accomplish that is to get my Master Mind Alliance together to organize all the pieces of my DMP  because I am not seeing how the to move forward and I now believe I will only be successful by becoming perfectly harmonious with a Master Mind Alliance... and for that to happen I have to give all I have and am to the team.  Simba lost his way for awhile but with the help of his friends he accomplished all he ever dreamed of and SO WILL I for  I AM NATURES GREATEST MIRACLE and I WILL PERSIST UNTIL I SUCCEED.  Fulfilling my DMP is a service to many, many lives. Oh I just can't wait to be king!

Week 13 Extra, Extra, Read all about it.

Wow, something amazing just happened and I felt compelled to write it down. I had mentioned that I had been blocked out of the site for some odd reason and I wasn't able to view the webcast until Saturday night and Holy Cow... Mark was right on... He said that this is one of the hardest weeks and most people usually skimp on their assignments and justify it - allowing the old blueprint to take over again and it's true.  I watched a few T.V. shows, didn't make it to the gym, ate too many treats...  I diligently did my reading every night but not with enthusiasm... I looked at my cards but w/o conviction, I was going through the motions but not internalizing it and when he talked about NARC (Neurological Associative Reactive Conditioning) and explained how we need to find something that causes real pain... BOOM!   not fulfilling your measure of my creation - Boy I felt that!  I was so ashamed that I had literally put my dreams in the trash, let myself, my family and my God down that I never want to feel that way again.  Although it was a painful experience, I felt blessed for having that stark realization and grateful to be kicked in the head to get back to my definiteness of purpose.  I am not involved in Network marketing so my traction point isn't calling people but rather building a Christ-like person within myself.  The million dollar door I need to go through is right in front of me and I am turning the handle.
Thank you God for helping me see what I can really be and how to get there.

Week 13 The Gift that keeps on giving...

This week has been a busy one with Christmas and all... But what a good one!  The greatest gift of all is becoming the person God want's you to be and then magnifying those abilities to the benefit to everyone around you.  That is what happened to me.  I couldn't get into the system to view the web cast or get my blog list so all I could do was re-read last weeks material and work on the 5 senses to make my DMP come alive for me or as Hanell states:  " fertilize the thought with a living purpose".  The holidays are wonderful but bring about a lot of old blueprint problems that I was even more aware of because of the Mental Diet.  I also spent extra time on the 7 laws of the mind...   I realize that this process is an "Unfoldment" but wow what an amazing week unfolded for me.  I had to re-write my DMP because I have accomplished so many of them.  I am truly grateful for this process and the life-changing experience it has been so far.  I can hardly wait for the next half of the course.

Week 12 - "Wherever you go, that's where you are!"

This week I started out a little less motivated but after the webcast (I have to watch it on Tuesdays / Wednesdays because I have Church meetings on Sunday when it is originally broadcast and it's not uploaded by Monday and Tuesdays I am most often work late so this week I watched it on Wednesday and WOW!  I am so excited.  In fact I always get super motivated after the webcasts... They are amazing and inspirational.  Especially after the 50 min assignment in front of the mirror... THAT WAS AMAZING.  Last week or so I read that we should be able to put our DMP into 10 words... So I Did and so when Mark asked us to go to the mirror I already had a statement I could use... Well after about 10 minutes I began to see that I needed more, so I added or changed a word here and there, defined it in my head and came up with a phrase that after about 30 min actually made me weep for joy and excitement because I realized that I am that man!  That experience combined with the "sit" assignment this week from Hannell, I realized that I am connected with omnipotence - I am a child of God with divine potentia.
Anyway I realized that whether I am stuck at home tending the kids/grand-kids, running errands, at work or fulfilling an assignment, I am still building the real me.  Like Buckaroo Banzai said, "Wherever you go... That's where you are!"  And I am in the process of becoming the best me - of fulfilling the measure of my creation, of becoming a better me so I can serve others and I want to enjoy every moment of it.  Og said in scroll III that "we greet the new sun with confidence that this is the best day of my life!"  Well with stimulating the five scenes with my DMP as often as possible so I am seeing, feeling, tasting, touching, and hearing my dreams... each day does become the  best.  Hannell says that "money and property are not freedom at all,  the only independence is found to be a practical working knowledge of the creative power of thought"....  the power of the mind to bring into existence anything we desire," and I can do that every moment with my vision of who I am becoming.   WOW!   It truly is an UNFOLDMENT - THAT PERSISTENT PRACTICE AND CONCENTRATION LEAD OT PERFECTION. It is a law that operates with mathematical exactitude.  Understanding is not application, and now after 11 weeks of faith in this system I have created a habit of doing and am beginning to see how it will work for me.  I have stopped T.V and am using the time to meditate, exercise, read, connect with family;  I'm saving the last hour of the day to put the right thoughts into my subconscious so it will crank on them all night long...  I'm reviewing the cards, saying my affirmations with more enthusiasm every day believing that  the system works 100% of the time and I just need to tune it to the right frequency of thought...  And I think it is working...
For example, last night I had an opportunity to do a tour presentation, but it had snowed heavily and most of the people who were invited cancelled due to the weather... But not knowing if there would be anyone else I went anyway... I waited an extra 45 min past starting time and was just about ready to leave when a family came in.  It was great - we had a wonderful time and I think they will accompany me to Central America this summer.  Wow.  Og said I persist until I succeed.  When each day is ended, not regarding whether it has been a success or a failure, i attempt to achieve one more sale.  I DID!  But my day wasn't over.. I went home around 9:00 pm and helped put the little girls to bed, then cleaned the kitchen, and sat to do my reading.  When I was finished and began to meditate, I remembered I had promised I would take the custodian / janitor of my building some caramel popcorn.  So I grabbed the ingredients and made a batch finishing around 11:00.  It was at that moment that I had the thought hit me "I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES... And I had.  I am becoming the person I have dreamed about.  IT WAS AWESOME.  I know that wherever I go, That I am that man I want to be and I am exactly where I want to be!

Week 11 - I think I can, I think I can, I think I can... I DID!

Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.
That is our assignment and the theme for me this week. 

I have several degenerated disks in my lower back and am often quite sore.  These last few months has been worse because of all the extra lifting and work in my 3rd part time job.  Well I had a friend who has an inversion table and he let me borrow it for a week and it really helped.  So I began to imagine one - did some research and picked the one I wanted and during my sit imagined how wonderful it will feel to have it.  after about two months it happened.  This last week, I came home from work and my wife had purchased the exact one I had been in-visioning.  I don't know where she got the money or knew the one I wanted but there it is in my basement.  Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them... really works.  Now I am  putting more feeling and desire into the accomplishment of my DMP.  I am so inspired, excited, and more faithful that those things will manifest as well.
What a terrific ride.  What Og said is true... Today is the best day of my life.

#10 Dec 5th I CAN be what I will to be... and I will fly!

":It's strange.  The gulls who scorn perfection for the sake of travel go nowhere, slowly.  Those who put aside travel for the sake of perfection go anywhere, instantly". (Jonathan Livingston Seagull)

Mark J. was right that there would be pain and some death throws as the old blue print kicked the bucket.  Breaking the chemical addictions of the past.  This was the hardest week for me yet... maybe it was the holiday and all the old triggers... habits/ expectations.  I did all the reading, recitations, meditating, etc. but I kept having to push back the thoughts that this won't work for me, or I'm wasting my time, I'm nuts, or my concerns about my wife's worry that I have joined a cult!  Well I made it and I know that "I CAN BE WHAT I WILL TO BE".

I am so excited for the new me and my future!  As I stepped back and looked at my journey I realized that I am really having a good time and I had to make some adjustments to my DMP and work at each item patiently in order.  I put more red circles on my favorite snack foods and was careful of my portion sizes at Thanksgiving as well as limited the amount of pie I ate -- I also had the biggest test with my MENTAL DIET.  I messed up my date night with my wife and missed the movie we wanted to see and for a moment the visceral feeling and disappointment / self recriminations hit me like a ton of bricks and I had to repeat to myself  the affirmation that "I'm whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy" as well as quickly grab my picture of my wife at the beach and it was gone...  Hannell states " positive thought will destroy negative as certainly as light destroys darkness."   IT WORKED!  I suggested we go shopping; found a great deal on the kids Christmas presents / saved several hundred dollars and had a great evening.   Now I am moving forward... I marked off another of my DMP statements by joining the family marathon over thanksgiving... Everyone else got sick and  I was the only one to go, but I did it!  I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES.

I made a manifestation card with a list of steps to make my next DMP statements come true and am focusing on them and letting my mysterious mind which never sleeps take over and find the answers.  I am so excited that when I have a free 10 minutes instead of turning on the TV like I used to do, I know am imagining what the next step will look like and how I will feel when it all comes together.    Like Hannell says, "holding in mind the condition desired;  affirm it as an already existing fact." ...  That's what I'm doing and I am excited for the outcome.  I must admit I didn't understand a single thing in chapter 10 and I hope Mark explains it in the next video conference and that is something else to look forward to.  Like Fletcher Lund Seagull said, "you've got to understand that a seagull is an unlimited idea of freedom, an image of the Great Gull, and your whole body, from wingtip to wingtip is nothing more than your thought itself" and I am ready to fly!

Week 9 A Happy Thanksgiving.

AS instructed...  This week I have been trying to see the fulfillment of my DMP as a service to others and that idea alone has been a tremendous experience.  With three married kids we decided years ago to hold our family Thanksgiving on Wednesday.  That way there wouldn't be any pressure for the married kids and the in-laws.  It has worked out great over the years but this year my wife is working on an advanced degree and has had major stress with over the top assignments and projects.  This Wednesday was no different so we decided to be UN-traditional....  We gave all the kids and grand kids all day passes to Boondocks (a family fun center) and met there around noon.  We played miniature golf, rode the go-carts, went bowling, played lazer tag etc. etc.  Then around 5:30 we came home and I barbecued some marinated turkey breasts, we had instant stuffing, rolls, salad, baked sweet potatoes, beans all on paper cups and plates (easy clean-up).  I had previously had made four apple pies and we drank my homemade apple cider and grape juice. After dinner we played games until late into the night while my little girls and the grand kids tour up the house. It was the best Thanksgiving ever.  My wife was also able to finish an assignment and still feel a part of the festivities.  The best part was that previously on Monday, my wife had invited over a contractor to give a bid on expanding the family room / kitchen area.  WOW... That is one of my DMP goals and I had never told her.  I sat there in the house all Thanksgiving thinking how much more comfortable the party is going to be when we finish the re-model and that every second with my family is precious.  I was also able to visualize all my other DMP ideals fulfilled as I spent time with my family.  To be my best self for them makes my heart beat and life is truly heaven on earth.  I got a glimpse of eternity last night and realized in my heart that all  I want in life is really being in the service of others.  GIVE MORE GET MORE.  Do the remodel, take cooking lessons, invite the neighbors over to eat, let my kids see the joy in serving others - "Affirm it as an already existing fact"  I get it!  Love, eat, and praise God for this bounteous life.

#8 11-20, Keep Moving Forward...

 I am all caught up and moving forward.  I was having a hard time seeing colors and shapes.... so after making my movie poster, I made a whole bunch more shapes w/ their corresponding color and put them all over the house.  For example, Red circles are for true health and one of my DMP statements is to make healthy choices so I put a red circle on the fridge, the pantry, the treat box, my office desk and workroom etc.  I have really struggled to meet my true health promises and this has really helped.  After the webcast, I bought some snickers bars and other favorite treats and put them where I can see them and then put a red circle on each of them so when I see them I am more excited to not eat it, keep my promises and be in great health than I am  to just satisfy my sweet tooth.

I am also wearing a blue wrist band to remind me to meditate and I carry a compass in my pocket every where I go.  I have yellow triangles on all the doors to remind me to follow the spirit and to draw closer to my Father in Heaven.  Green is to remind me to GO AND DO it now!  To be the person I am dreaming of being.  I also am wearing a necklace to remind me to be more patient and give all my time to my wife and kids first.  I have been so caught up in doing my reading, meditating etc. etc. so I can become a better person that I was neglecting the family which is the reason I want to be a better person in the first place.   To be my best for them makes my heart beat and life becomes heaven on earth.   And it has been so helpful.  I can feel the difference...  In chapter 8:24 of Master Keys, I know that successful men make it their business to hold ideals of the conditions which they wish to realize.  That is what I intend to do.  8:25 He states that if you have been faithful to your ideal, you will hear the call when circumstances are ready to materialize your plans and results will correspond in the exact ratio of your fidelity to your ideal.

I have been studying Qi Gong to help me meditate and am so excited to keep moving toward the person I desire to be.  when I am happy with who I am, then everyone around me is more at peace and I find we connect on a much deeper level that we ever have before.

I have loved the Battleship exercise although going backward to it's beginning has been more difficult for me than thinking of a part and moving forward from it's creation to its placement in the battleship.  The first night, I followed the instructions given by Hannell and saw all the steel back to the smelting, the digging of the ore, and the geologist who discovered it.  The next night, I did the same thing with the wiring and then the next night again with the power plant in the ship - I determined it to be nuclear.  It has been so much fun that I can't wait to see what my imagination will come up with tonight.  Hannall was right...  with this exercise, everything  has taken on a different appearance, the insignificant becomes significant, the uninteresting interesting;  the thins which we supposed to be of no importance are seen to be the only really vital things in existence ---  especially me!

I know I can't force anything but I am so excited to see what happens on Dec. 8th.  Until then, I'll KEEP MOVING FORWARD.

Week 7 "I'm in the dynamic flow of giving and recieving"

This week I have spent hours laboring over the 20 min assignment to build my movie poster, make 8 8X10 + the 16 various copies and 3x5 bookmarks....  But their done and put in places around the house, in my car, office, wallet, pockets and everywhere else I can think to put them.  Now I'm making my soundtrack to my DMP.  I love it all even though I feel I am a week behind...  I have generally  been a week ahead. For example, a few weeks ago I picked red for true health, Yellow for spirituality, Blue for meditation, and Green for DO IT NOW! GET ER DONE assignments and service, and then color coded my DMP.  Then the next web cast we were told to do that exact thing. Wow...  This has happened several times in the past month and I feel like I'm getting the direction were going and then to have it verified has been a thrill.  This is fun.

I am excited to work on the 7 day mental diet and got my first opportunity this week when I was downtown with my wife and little girls and locked the keys in the car.  So rather than get mad, we made a night of it all, walked across the street and went to dinner, shopping....  By the time we finished and walked back to our car our rescuer had arrived with the extra set of keys.  I like the new me!  I like being inspired and acting on those impressions and then finding out  I am on the right track...  I'm excited to really create a new blue-print for myself and my future and I'm getting a glimpse of how I can get there.  (Live in the dynamic flow of giving and receiving)

Week #6 Lights, Camera, ACTION!

Wow, It's happening and I love every moment of it. As part of my DMP I have been meditating, desiring, focusing on becoming more charismatic, self confident, outgoing and creative.  Several weeks ago and completely out of the blue I was asked to M.C. a talent show for the whole county where I live. BIG STEP!
I began early each morning by  mentally creating my day and envisioning how funny I would be, how commanding and vivaciously I would introduce each act and then during that day ideas would come, jokes would materialize in my head and the program began to flow.  This last week I spent hours upon hours designing gags with prizes that would lead into each talent and uplift the audience as well as give credit and applause to the performers.
Then the big night, Friday came and I will admit I was mildly nervous wondering if  the audience would think my jokes and skits were funny and relevant but I was prepared and took that step into the darkness... and into the spotlight and it was great.  I wasn't perfect but it flowed well, I was able to adjust to fit the schedule of the performers and even concluded with a quote from Mandino about love. I was rewarded with applause, laughter, and some giving a standing ovation.

That was a fantastic feeling but the really great part happened after.  My wife and I met this couple who came up to say thank you and remarked that some of the jokes I had made about Korea and adoption were funny...  I told them that they were all from real experiences and they couldn't believe it because the husband had also lived in Korea and they were interested in adoption.  My wife and I have been adoption advocates for years and were able to answer some of their most urgent questions.  We spoke for over an hour and then made plans for a future dinner get together.  On the way out my wife mentioned how much she wanted to help this couple which is another  manifestation of  one of my DMP's - to help others with adoptions.  BOOM  It hit me like a boulder that things were falling into place to fulfill my hearts deepest desires and I was immediately humbled, awestruck, excited and quite honestly full of absolute faith that all the other dreams will come to fruition. 

I am so excited to see it all unfold that each day is becoming an adventure in possibilities.  Mandino was right... that you will begin to awake each morning with a vitality never known before, an increase in vigor, enthusiasm and desire to meet the world and overcome every fear... and yes I am happier than I ever believed possible.  

The light was on... The camera was rolling... and the Actions flowed to surpass all expectations.  WHAT A GREAT MOVIE!

Baby Step - Today I begin a new life - Week #5

I feel good, I feel great, I feel wonderful!  Wow what an interesting week.  first of all I really loved the idea of looking for all the things in life that bring joy and boy did I find some - Children playing and laughing in their Halloween costumes, The crisp evening air and a full moon, the pungent aroma of ripe grapes, crisp tart taste of fresh apples just picked from the tree, colorful fall leaves throughout the neighborhood and on the mountains, breathtakingly bright blue sky that hurts your eyes to look at to name just a few.

I also love the "Law of Giving" idea which states "wherever I go, I bring a gift.  I may bring a compliment, a prayer, a trinket, a flower... but I promise I will give something to every person I encounter....  W/o expectation of reciprocity..."  Well I  wanted to be in the dynamic flow of giving and I have just spent countless hours steaming grape juice - which I love - so all my family,  neighbors, when ever someone came to the house, or I knew I was to meet someone for the day, I gave them a bottle of grape juice.  It was fun and it really meant something to me to give that away because of all the effort that went into growing, harvesting, cleaning, steaming and bottling it.  IT FELT GREAT.

Well Hannell and Emerson stated " GIVE MORE GET MORE".  So I was wondering if all this was really going to work for me and I was watching some video clips after the video on the MKMMA tab in the Laziest networker in the world web site and heard a story of a woman who wanted a cosmic sign that she was important and an eagle flew in to her car and I thought that would be awesome!  So the next morning when I take time to spiritually create my day I meditated on getting some amount of money just as a test. Well that afternoon I had an acquaintance come to the house (who I gave a bottle of grape juice to) and they needed some Landscape Lighting supplies and I  had some to just give her but sheinsisted on paiing me and gave me a really good price for them.  Hhhmm.

Then later in the evening my wife got a call and found out that there was some money from her late father's estate that had been held back for taxes that would be sent to us w/i the week.  Again HHhmmmmmm.

Then after 9:30 pm I remembered that I said I would take a Charlie Brown movie to work for a co-worker and I got on the phone / internet and couldn't find it anywhere to rent.  I thought about "Always keeping my promises" and what I could do to get that movie.  My wife decided to put it out on her Face book page and got a reply from a neighbors' daughter that her mom had a copy and my wife told me to give the neighbor a call.  I was in the middle of doing my readings so I put off calling and just as I finished I got a call from the neighbor who told me she had the movie and that her husband was out and would bring it over to my house in 10 minutes....    WOW!  HHHMMMMMM.  Guess who got a bottle of grape juice???

So the morale of the story is that I am now visualizing my DMP with more enthusiasm and excitement than ever before knowing that It will work for me once I train my subconscious mind.  

BABY STEP - Today I begin a new life.

Master of the Vineyard

Wow - what a great week...  Although I feel behind in making connections with colors and my DMP, I have seen some real progress.  I got angry once this week but caught myself and laughed because that hasn't happened for a very long time and I realized that I am beginning to manifest my true self and I love who I am becoming.

I found myself living the part in Mandino where he says "Today I am born anew and my birthplace is a vineyard where there is fruit for all.  Today I pluck grapes of wisdom from the tallest and fullest vines in the vineyard...  ...Today I savor the taste of grapes from these vines and verily swallow the seed of success buried in each and new life sprouts within me." 

This is harvest season and my grapevines are ripe and full.  The smell is intoxicating and I have been diligently picking several boxes a day and washing them, separating the fruit from the stems and steaming the juice so I can bottle it.  I have done this for years and every fall it seems such a chore but now I am loving the process.  * It's true that "thousands of grapes are (steamed) to fill one jar with (juice), and the grape-skin and pulp are tossed to the birds."  What I have learned is that the hours it takes to harvest, clean and bottle the juice is similar to the hours and effort taken to retrain the subby to produce the juice of success in my own life.  I have maliciously been spending hours separating the dross from my life literally feeling the intensity of the pressure cooker to produce the sweetest of life's experiences.  AND OH HOW I LOVE GRAPE JUICE.  The first tastes of this years juice is  exquisite!

It's interesting to note that when I have finished a batch at the end of the evening and then leave the pulp in the steamer, by morning I will have an additional two quarts of juice in the collection pan.  It has also been that way for me after doing the mental exercises of reading and meditating, by morning I have extra energy, ideas,  hope, excitement etc.  so although the process is still difficult and tedious to retrain my subby, I'm excited and look forward with renewed effort to continue the process and lay up in store a lifetime of drinking from the sweet juices of my harvest.

Wait for iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit

This has been a great week.  I have really focused on my DMP, going over every word to make sure it was right and I had some insights to tweek a sentence or two, change a different word or two and BAM!!!!!   It seemed to really hit me It rang true - like I finally got it right and I got so excited.  I'm still tweeking it here and there but now IT ALL seems different - and like Shawn Spencer on Psych when he knows what's going to happen and tells everyone to "wait for iiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.... I know that's all I have to do  -  just like a gardener who plants  his crops and then waters, nourishes and then waits for a season to partake of the harvest, that's all I have to do.  I'm working on nourishing the seeds of my DMP by continuing the reading and focusing my thoughts on FEELINGS and building good habits.... the problem is I saw a little green shoot pop out of the ground and it feels like Christmas when I was a little kid and I just can't stand the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait.

Death Therapy, It's an absolute cure!

This week has been crazy and yet I'm still here and if I don't do something about my future today, when will I find the time to get it right?  That's the mantra from Mark J. and it's the one thing that has kept me going. I understand and believe that to have harmony in the world without, then I need to control my thoughts and feelings and determine for myself how my daily experiences are to affect me.  But if the world without is a reflection of the world within.... then my world within is way too busy!

Amid all the bustle, I have been working on my Definiteness of purpose or (DMP).  I think I have it on paper but I am struggling to determine what I really want for my future.  I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO SAVE THE WORLD.   Mark J. had us focus on a list of Personal Pivotal Needs and then shut our eyes.... ponder... and then open them and write down the first two that came to our minds and hearts.  Well I did it and I realize that in acquiring those two, I will in the end need to acquire them all but secretly I hope I picked the right ones to start on!  Nevertheless, I'm on it and I filled out my 3X5 card and put down my promises color coded with blue... I'm repeating "Do it Now!:" as well as my DMP out loud with enthusiasm 3X a day;  reading the Haanell material, the Greatest Salesman in the world 3X a day; saying the Blueprint out loud and taking a few minutes to meditate.  Made my blog, watched the videos, and am caught up on the 2nd weeks Webcast. I am taking time for the kids and date night with my wife and so far the big change..... Not so much!  I realize this is a process and it takes a season to prepare the soil, fertilize, plant and then grow the new blueprint.  I'm just so hungry I'm starving to death.  Maybe that's the point.

The Start of My Blog

As I begin a new adventure of self discovery I have really struggled deciding where to start.  I am working on my Definiteness of purpose and feel to focus only on the personal / spiritual growth I desire and ignore any work related objectives and focus primarily on changing the world by changing myself.  Therefore, my adventure is to create a better me that is totally honest with others as well as myself.  I hope to boldly go where I have not dared to venture before and find within myself the true measure of my creation.
