Week 22 states that EVERY thought produces an impression on the mind, which is a seed that will sink into the subconscious and form a tendency that will attract other similar thoughts. So, I guess we should always see our mind as a blank canvas on which we can paint any picture and create our desires. I’ve definitely noticed that people that are focused on what they feel is negative or wrong around them always seem to be swimming in even more negativity. I’ve also heard that there is no such thing as a successful pessimist! But, we know that there is a lot of negative in the world, and some might simply call this reality. If we ignore this reality then are we ignorant? I don’t think it’s about be ignorant as much as it is about not letting that negative reality paint any kind of a picture on your blank canvas. There is always more good than bad, more positive that negative. Remember that darkness cannot overcome light? Has anyone ever told you that you are overly optimistic? If you have heard that then take a good look at the person saying that to you – they are probably not where they want to be in life. Chapter 13 states ‘weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions’; I would also add that ‘weak is he who permits others’ thoughts to control his actions’!
I love this phrase from The Greatest Salesman. Too often we work ourselves up over things we think really matter. I’d be much better off to take steps back and breath before reacting in an emotional way or putting too much thought and energy into things we cannot control. I live in a beautiful house with a nice yard surrounded by trees and snow. I can allow myself to just sit and take in the beauty. No need to be “doing” something all of the time or thinking. Less is more and I am happy to move forward simplifying my life and taking it more with ease and relaxation.
This chapter talks about the wheel of today’s joy will bring tomorrow’s sadness. I have always said that, that we live on the circle of life. Great day, great day, good day, good day, not so good day, sad, depressed, great and great again. Life has ups and downs and I always no that when I am down it will be pretty good again soon. I let things pass in and pass on. Live in the gently flow of life.
Ben Franklin always seems to pop up in these types of study circles; success, innovation, founding principles, self discovery, etc. He was quite an amazing person. They don’t just let any slouch on the $100 bill, right?!
So I choose ‘taking initiative’ as the first week virtue. It’s not that I don’t take initiative well, but it just reminded me of that ‘future self’ thing we learned several weeks ago regarding procrastination. That really hit home with me and it’s something I’ve been very aware of and I have improved many little task things in my life because of that. I noticed it on both ends with others this week. Some just ‘doing it now’ and others putting things on the back burner so to speak. Either way it has enhanced that awareness in me and motivated me to get those little chores done. The reward is simply knowing that…

The movie title “Cool Runnings” translates to peace be the journey. This was evident at the end of the movie. With a chance to win an Olympic medal, the Jamaican bobsled team suffered a run ending crash. They did not cry. They were not angry. They did not blame one another. They proved to be champions, and carried their sled down the track, across the finish line, and finished the race. This among roaring cheers from their fans across the world.
This movie was a true test of perseverance and overcoming adversity. It was about teamwork and working as a mastermind to fulfill a burning desire. A test of the will and digging deep into your soul to learn the man within. The men failed and failed again, all along the way to perfect their skills. We are taught to our own heart and not those of negative ill. We believe in ourselves and in the good of others.
We were also taught about ridding the old blueprint, as Junior had to overcome his past weak emotions when encountering his strict father.
Our DMP and burning desire will lead our vision to victory, just as it did to the Jamaican bobsled team.
Happy New Year!
Great Evening Everyone! If you are reading this you have something to celebrate. We made it through another year. What a way to start it off with knowing I am Nature’s greatest miracle. That statement is powerful within itself. MKMMA is helping me to understand that very lesson in life. Once you learn how to utilize your God-given tools your opportunities are limitless.
From everything that happen in 2014 was very timely my readings along with my life circumstances, The subby is starting to cooperate instead of being rebellious. It’s easy to do and easier not to do, I’ve learned that you just have to do. The readings of Haanel had us to focus on harmony this week, something I long for. He also touch on why we do think so negatively. Once again it was a very intense week. I have to learn to practice what I’m learning…

So what I am realizing more and more is that so many successful people in all walks of life have the common theme in their thinking of, “the Universe”. They pay attribute to the Universe an are often felt guided in daily activity, notice strong coincidences, or see their desires come through at a much faster rate. They all have vision and methods that we are learning in the Master Keys. And much of this is to simply have the vision of your desire, and the Universe or subconscious will figure the rest out and know how to attain. It feels like thousands of people have read Hanel or Napolean Hill…..this goes back hundreds of years and that most of the great leaders and thinkers of the world all believe in this congruent general philosophy on life.
I received a seasonal message from SUCCESS magazine the other day that included this quote from Orison Swett Marden, past publisher of SUCCESS magazine, “There is only one thing for us to do, and that is to do or level best right where we are every day of our lives; To use our best judgement, and then to trust the rest to that Power which holds the forces of the universe in his hands”
This is all very powerful and we have amazing guidance in our MKMMA with our readings, exercises, and vision boards. I love reading the blueprint every day and my DMP. And I recently noticed that it truly is much more effective when I read slowly and pause in between sentences.
