This week is half way through the 6 month Master Key Experience and in this post I am going to share my revelations from this week and how much of an impact it has had on me as a person.
This week has been tough for me to maintain keeping up with the daily readings and tasks. I was struck down with a stomach bug, the kids started school holidays and I also felt the sting of the resistance.
Our old blueprint wants to pull us back to that place that makes us believe that we aren’t capable or deserving of what we want. We question why it is such a long path when challenges and obstacles show up. This is where the masses weaken. They start to lose hope that they can ever achieve their greatest purpose. I will persist until I succeed is a great reminder to what it takes to reach our deepest desires!
“The prizes in life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning: and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter upon the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner”.
Whilst I have been less diligent with my readings and tasks I have started to notice how much of an effect the words we have imprinted in our subconscious have had on me. The old me was so attached to my ego that whenever someone did me wrong or I felt threatened in any way I needed to ‘react’ in a way that was destructive and based on fear instead of love.
This last week I felt the sting of someone else’s words and whilst I wanted to react with my ego I took the time to find peace and go to my heart and respond with love. I can’t tell you how much freer and better this feels. As we have been learning in the Master Key Experience our thoughts can be controlled and we can attach any feeling to them that we want to. We can choose to live in fear or we can choose to greet and respond with love.
I have also noticed that through this journey my life’s purpose is slowly revealing itself and much different to when I started. Through self-growth and self-reflection we learn to tap into our true heart and forget what the ego wants and focus on what our heart wants.
AWEsome Post Jenni Thank you for sharing your Thoughts and Observations
From Warwick & I EnJoy Your Holidays and “Live Your Dream”
For years the debate raged…but without rage. Masterminds are so productive and powerful when there is true harmony. The debate centered the “pay-off”
POINT: Promising a pay-off that would insure success in all ventures and encouraging people to develop 4 tiny habits over a 6 week period…operating as if the “promise” of a pay-off would be believed and the “insuring” of success would sweeten the pot more than enough to entice members to engage fully, daily, in 4 tiny actions
COUNTER POINT: Inform the members excactly what the pay-off would be and operate as if their understanding of acquiring the bigger habit of persistence would ignite even deeper engagement in the 4 little habits.
For the diligent, the treasures are just beginning… they will be coming in abundance for the faithful during upcoming progressions, [shhh..and in the 2 we are currently working into the members daily lives]
In the end we took turns arguing both points of view. This is a wonderful exercise with a mastermind group by the way. The arguing of both sides of a point does lead to wonderful enlightenment while reminding one that it is “purpose over ego” – very effective, try it out sometime.
What none of us could get past was faith. I’m not talking about the kind of faith most instructors would like…faith in the teacher. We’re talking about having faith in the members and really understanding what they’d been reading for two months was illustration after illustration of the steps to persistence.
At the core of the decision we made to share only that there would be a pay-off but not define it was both the seed and the battleship exercises.
The Battleship: The promise of success in all ventures. To imagine being successful with ideas members are getting a clear mental picture of daily, with effortlessness is the battleship. The opportunity to “think” is thereby created. What does that mean? It means that by focusing on being successful, knowing one would be successful before they even begin is an ideal for most of us…and looking at what we were asking members to do, daily, is, really, a pratical application of that battleship exercise.
The Seed: The 4 tiny habits, no matter how well one engaged, have been planted. Something to build on…something to take a hard look at…and ask, “did I do my best?” If one looks at that without judgement, great discovery abounds.
The bigger discovery we hoped for and the years have proven this to be correct, is that
many members have shared they simply did not do their best daily…and while regretting it to some degree, it was correctable regarding persistence with a little back tracking but there were no longer “half-baked” efforts moving forward…no more “doing the exercises as if they were a ‘to do’ list”…they moved all-in, daily.
Was it a trick or a lesson?
Does that really matter? No, not to us. The second half of the course has multiple progressions and combinations….all building to extrodinary pay-offs, really extrordinary and the “discovery” of a falsehood sets, we felt, members up for bigger successes by exposing a massive lie.
You can’t be here and not be here.
The truth is you can be here and not be here. Yeah, here I go again with the “whole is greater than the sum of the parts” speech. You are in a Mastermind Alliance that has a specific “cause” …no matter how you engaged with the 4 tiny habits that develop the bigger habit of persistence, do better. You are here, you are in this thing, you are part of something special or very special. What makes it “very” special is you taking everything you can by giving more than you ever imagined possible.
Give more…and you’ll get more.
You’ve already begun to develop a “habit” that less than 5% of the people on the planet, according to Hill, ever have….persistence. Real persistence. Not that crap the motivational speakers peddle from stage; that “don’t quit” nonsense. You know better, I know better… hell, anyone with common sense knows better.
PAY THE PRICE. Practice persistence the rest of the way with each and every progression….we are running multiple progressions and have been for a few weeks….dig in, be persistence…especially that part about continuous action…you don’t have to think about what to do…it’s all spelled out for you each week. The treausres that await you cannot be found, they must be earned…you’ve got the “map” but as Og points out, the “map” regardless of the detail, will not carry you over one inch of ground nor yield the treasure that is waiting for you to claim in.
We simply cannot urge you more strongly to leverage those 4 tiny habits that make up the bigger habit of persistence with the uncoming and the on going “progressions” we have built into the course. Day-by-day improve and embrace. When you discover, via persistence on these tasks any 10 year old can do what you are crafting for yourself you will be, as Og says, “Happier than you ever believed possible. Matter for fact, I promise, if you’ll fully embrace this current progression as we reveal it, you will state, absolutely, that you are, in fact … happier. And when you discover the science behind what happens in a happy brain you’ll want everyone you know and care about to have what you have…the compulsion to share this self-crafted gift will stun you and “you’ll really like you” even more.
And one more thing…the “continuous action” in the persistence formula is really driven by that buring desire Hill wrote about…that earnest deisre Haanel wrote about…more gusto with those DMP reads….more often….you’ve got so much more to give….and I promise that the pay-offs will dazzle you…and that’s not the best part.
The best part?
The best part is that the treasures will be yours! You will have earned them with the “hard mental labor so few are willing to do” Haanel. And better yet, the more you give those treasures away that you earn, the more they will return to you…
This week my Guest Blogger is Brony Russell, She is a talented Ceramic and Multi Media Collage Artist living in Australia and someone I had the good fortune to meet many moons ago in New Zealand in a mountain town called Ohakune…She has inspired me and shown me how discipline and persistence DOES pay off, she is so focused when she begins a project and follows through to its completion…
