Week 8: The Journey Continues- Halfway There!

It is hard to believe we are half way done with the Master Key Experience (MKE). On the one hand look at how fast the time went bye. One the other hand, look at how far we have come and all that we have learned. As an example, I never would have thought about having a blog before MKE. I know you are probably saying, “yah, we guessed that.”

Although I have attempted to change my negative thoughts in the past, doing it on my own had mixed results. Coming off a stressful job experience a few years ago, I was consciously trying to remain positive during a job hunt. I would stop when I would get negative and tell myself I was wrong (I know, negative) and that things weren’t going in the wrong direction. They were going to be better. A non-response or a “thank you, but” message did not have the same impact on me as it had because I would say, “that was just the wrong job for me” and “there is something better out there for me.”

It is a bit different when one is trying to make a positive, permanent change. When things change in your situation, you can’t go back to old ways later. You don’t get to be negative because your new coworkers or associates or friends or even family members are negative.

Don’t do it to fit in. Be positive and stand out!

Speaking of which.
Diet report: I did a bit better this week. Definitely made it past Sunday, this time. Made it to Wednesday afternoon, before I hit a rough spot. Then I had several restarts before I was back on track. I guess I still have a problem with doing things I don’t want to do.

The good new is that some family members have changed their attitudes, too, without knowing it. If (when), I was thinking negatively and was around others, I would catch myself, and then apologize to those with me. I also made sure they knew I was not speaking about them. It calmed down my daughter before she had a chance to fired up. I also tried to compliment others more often, instead of criticizing. Right know this is still a conscious effort, but the goal is to be more genuine and automatic about it.

I hope you are seeing improvement as well! Don’t forget to celebrate your successes. It is easy to forget it and not reinforce the good things going on.

Are you spending any time thinking about what champions do and don’t do? I know that I don’t practice enough. I need to do more fundamentals. It took me a long time to understand what that even meant in real life.

If you have your own business and someone tell you about all the free throws Kobe Bryant would shoot after losing a game, it doesn’t translate until you can break your business down and see what you must do daily to be successful.

Did you make calls? Do you practice what to say?

Are you prospecting? Do you practice what to say and how to say it? Are you enthusiastic?

Do you practice handling objections, practice closes? Are you seeking out the champions in your business and asking them questions to help your game?

I heard this week that successful people have libraries and the rest of the people have big screen TVs. Although I did not actually cut any electrical cords this week, I also did not watch much TV at all.

I don’t know about you, but I could really relate to the time vampires and the need to stay focused. I’ll admit it. I am easily distracted. Squirrel!

I was already aware of and battling several time vampires. This week I felt more empowered in my battle and even when they grabbed ahold of me, I was better prepared for the fight. How did you do?

I really liked the idea that you can’t manage time, only manage yourself. Do you remember a show called Heroes that was on for 2-3 years. This was just before all the superheroes and mutants came on the scene. There was a character who could slow down or stop time. He was unaffected by time. Isn’t that what we have been seeking for ourselves in the past.

Look at how many calendars, planners and date timers are available at the nearest Staples store? There is a whole industry full of consultants and gurus who, for a fee, will train you, your team or your company to better use time. With that in mind, how much more exciting and freeing is it to consider that this is all a hoax and that we should instead manage ourselves. Wow! Its like the battle has gone from multiple fronts to just one foe on one front. Ok, why is it that we always turn out to be our own worst enemy? Well at least we now know who we are fighting and we are more aware of our enemies’ tactics and weaknesses.

I am also very excited to have heard a definition of success that I can actually work with. Be the best you that you can be! Outstanding! I had heard something years ago about seeking to be a peak performer. Basically striving to be your best and to do it all or most of the time. That seems to have been replaced by Take Massive Action, or 10x your efforts or copying practices of the highly successful. Isn’t it liberating to see that I only have to max out my own skills and abilities? Be the best you that you can be! Isn’t that clear? Like Popeye said, “I am what I am and that’s all that I am”. He had it all the time. Forget Rocky and Bullwinkle (although I do love them). Popeye is the man. Stay out of fights, eat your spinach and do some good out there.

Until next week, don’t just be good, be great!

Week Seven Guest Blog Post #2 Dawn Anderson

Definition:  INTENTION [in-ten-shuh n]

 1. an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.            2. the end orobject intended; purpose.

So after setting the intention, then we visualize.  We just like the inventor or the architect see a clear mental picture of what the end result will be.  Like the architect visualizes his building and the inventor visualizes his idea….we develop with a firm faith that which allows us to render an image with complete accuracy in order to create it.
Whatever we think about expands.  So if the process of thought is that of poverty, loss, lack, anxiety, distress and fear, we sow a seed which harvests more of it.  On the other hand if we sow truth, wisdom, abundance, health, and love the inevitable result is more of the same.  Therefore, concentrate on the things you want, not the things you don’t want!  We plant the seeds!

Week Seven Guest Blog Post #1 Carolynn Sokil

Leave the HOW to the END – DoWoo #101/365

foot downI put my foot down…AND I have to admit…it feels bloody fantastic!

beach-house-1152x864Shortly after meeting each other Walter asked me “Can you picture yourself living on a beach…in a hut?” It was an emphatic answer YES!!!!

So…fast forward to present day (12 years lager) and I ask myself ‘What HAVE we done (besides get married and grow a child)?  We have this ultimate vision in our minds of a little piano bar – called Loud Smiles (of course). The ‘where’ took a few years to fine tune – Costa Rica. And similar to our good friends who live in Kauai now (rather than brrr Boston, MA where they hailed from) once we landed in this fantastic country we chose – it felt like home.  That was 8 years ago.

What has irked me since then is that our ‘when’ keeps moving farther and farther away.

WHY?

I also admit our‘plan on ‘how’ to get to Costa Rica has had numerous twists and turns. Challenges which have encouraged me to wallow in strife, frustration and yes, even tears.

WHY?

don't need stuffWhile I admit i like ‘stuff’ I don’t NEED ‘stuff’. A simplistic life is all I desire. My only requirements: Walter, Gregory, our adopted daughter (from there – once we get there), the dog (of course) and it needs to be in a warmer climate with a laid back ‘island time’ feel. I envision this as a place and space where I can reconnect back to what is important – my family and my artistic side, spending hours creating – a place where people are not concerned with what you drive and how big a home you have – being who I was meant to be – to myself and my family.

WHAT have I done instead?  My time has been spent working in a hectic corporate environment, then it has been spent creating alternate businesses to allow me to work from home, all the while remaining trapped with financial responsibilities and surrounded by the possessions of our material world.

WHY?

I don’t honestly know.

Upon reflection it appears I was doing what I thought one needed to do to get where we wanted to go.  We work hard. We save. We work some more. We hopefully save some more. And EVENTUALLY we get to go there. The same way most people go to school to get a degree to work for someone else to eventually work their way up the ladder, to retire so they can hopefully do the things they always wanted to do.

I was concentrating on the HOW.

WHY?

While having a healthy nest egg in the bank before we leave for Costa Rica may be ‘optimum’… I’m now realizing – truly recognizing – what I’ve been doing to myself in order to get there.   THISis where my foot came down.  I am a talented, smart, creative, personable person (hey, that felt GOOD!). I can do just about anything business wise and if there is something new I need to know in order to earn a living – I’m also a very quick learner.

The decision has been made. We are all in agreement. We have the where. We now have the when.  It’s the HOW which is not known but also no longer a concern.

There are the 6 questions we are to ask ourselves: WHO? WHAT? WHERE? WHEN? WHY? and HOW? How has always been part of this group but was – like the song on Sesame Street “one of those things which is not like the other”: It did not start with a W.

epiphanyWe are to concentrate only on the Ws.  It’s not our place to figure out the HOW.  That one is spelt differently for a reason – with the W at the end rather than the beginning. So that’s where we will leave HOW – at the end – allowing it to take care of itself – to unfold AFTER everything else has been taken care of.

So – it seems similar to the BE DO HAVE.  You must first BE.  Then you DO. THEN and only THEN will you HAVE what you envisioned.

So here is another one of my DMP’s I worked out what was keeping me from My Souls Desire and it was not prioritizing all of the things I was doing re: businesses and then “Focus Daniel-san Focus” was the Action to do…”do it now do it now do it now” x25

What Happened and What Didn’t Happen?

My 1st book Journey into Grace was put on hold I just wasn’t receiving anymore information…BUT then a joint collaboration with my friend Bronwyn manifested something else a Set of Mandala Affirmation Cards. I AM an as yet still an un-paid MKMMA Guide I AM manifesting that Guides get paid 🙂  Our Kauai Compound has grown and I AM selling from it 🙂  The sale of WOW SUP Hawaii LLC didn’t sell as a contract came in as part of a government adventure.  One of my Cats Tama went to Cat Heaven which was heart breaking 🙁 Our Container Living Space is still in the planning stage BUT we just secured another build in Wailua on the Big Island of Hawaii so thats a bonus.

Life happened and it is time to re-assess and update my DMP…Always changing as I grow and pieces and parts of my DMP are completed and celebrated.

Aloha
