Master Key week 18 – Follow Your Bliss

“30. The race has usually been for money and other mere symbols of power, but with an understanding of the true source of power, we can afford to ignore the symbols. The man with a large bank account finds it unnecessary to load his pockets down with gold; so with the man who has found the true source of power; he is no longer interested in its shams or pretensions.
31. Thought ordinarily leads outwardly in evolutionary directions, but it can be turned within where it will take hold of the basic principles of things, the heart of things, the spirit of things. When you get to the heart of things it is comparatively easy to understand and command them.
32. This is because the Spirit of a thing is the thing itself, the vital part of it, the real substance. The form is simply the outward manifestation of the spiritual activity within.

33. For your exercise this week concentrate as nearly as possible in accordance with the method outlined in this lesson; let there be no conscious effort or activity associated with your purpose. Relax completely, avoid any thought of anxiety as to results. Remember that power comes through repose. Let the thought dwell upon your object, until it is completely identified with it, until you are conscious of nothing else.
34. If you wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.
35. If you wish to eliminate lack, concentrate on abundance.
36. If you wish to eliminate disease, concentrate on health.
37. Always concentrate on the ideal as an already existing fact; this is the germ cell, the life principle which goes forth and sets in motion those causes which guide, direct and bring about the necessary relation, which eventually manifest in form.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System” Part XVII

As You might know I´ve had a turletgo_2bulent time in my life for the last month or so and in addition to that I launched what we call a “90 day run” for my business which basically means talking to a lot more people than ever before in my life.
I mentioned in last weeks post that ramping up the minimum daily contacts has been so much easier than expected and I´m mesmerized by my consistence and stability while taking on the daily tasks.

Especially as I have a confession to make here, prospecting on the phone is NOT my favorite and having to deal with some of the excuses and BS people bring up is nowhere near my choice for fun.

So what has this all to do with Joseph Campbells advice to “Follow Your Bliss”?

Well, as it turns out it has everything to do with it!

Finally during my sit today I gained some understanding of why the daily routine of contacting people finally has become not only bearable but actually desirable.

It´s the shortest, most direct and smooth way to manifest my DMP that I have access to right now. And that means by doing the work and sticking to the plan

I´m FOLLOWING my BLISS!!!find-place-inside-theres-joy-and-joy-will-burn-the-pain-joseph-campbell

The work itself might not be that blissful, just as hauling water and fetching firewood hundreds of years ago probably not was anyones idea of having fun. Just as these activities ensured survival of self and family, the work we do today is what ensures survival and manifestation of our dreams.
And in pursuing our dreams there can be only joy!

Funny enough my Subby knew that long before I did – my conscious mind rejected the thought out of habit and “pretended not to know”!

heroofownstoryNow is the time to up the ante and start getting better at the daily tasks, the habit has been formed a lot faster than I could ever have hoped for and I´ve started to improve my skills.

“I increase my knowledge of mankind, myself and the goods I sell, thus my sales multiply. I practice and improve and polish the words I utter to sell my goods, for this is the foundation on which I build my career and I never forget that many have attained great wealth and success with only one sales talk , delivered with excellence.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World” The Scroll Marked IV

So, that leaves us with the “Bliss Part” of the whole equation and I´d like to share a short video by some people who did some tiny bit of what the future holds for me:

Let´s start moving on that compass

I don´t know if You´ve ever been in that situation but a few years ago I was hiking with a friend, both him and I very used to move around in the mountains combining some 45 years of experience. With just one more night left we start in the morning and pretty soon get wrapped up in low clouds with visibility down to virtually 15 meters or less at times.compass
As we both knew the area from several previous tours we committed the cardinal mistake of convincing ourselves that we knew where we were going and just didn´t unpack the compass…

Needless to say we got ourselves in a situation where none of us had a clue where we were or how to get to where we were going – ever seen that happen in life???
Well, I´ve seen it happen in my life countless times – being stuck in habits, doing things a certain way believing I was doing the right thing, just most of the time getting lost while following something outside of myself. Distrusting my self, my instincts and my inner voice and instead turning myself inside out by trying to live by others ideals.

Which brings us to a similar situation as above mentioned just a few days ago, my wife, the Marvelous Maria, and I have developed a habit of paddle boarding in the morning and the other day we were greeted by a wonderfully foggy_supsmooth see and…a lot of fog…
Frankly, the guys at the water sport center didn´t want us to go out at all…

It´s good we knew what we wanted and were willing to trust our selves, at times we didn´t even see the next buoy marking the swimmers area. Anyway we stayed our course and made it there and back again, easy as we used the tools and skills available to us.

And that´s what the Master Key´s all about for me!

In the latest post I began to write about the project I´m launching this fall to turn the downward spiraling health of the human race around and for me it´s all about addressing the kids as most adults are far to entangled in their habits to be easily accessible or even approachable.
To influence the kids we need to get into the channels of information they enjoy to use, which basically boils down to social media, gaming and conforming with their peers. Needless to say it´ll take some money to utilize the first to (and BTW that´s the way to influence the nature of peer pressure they´re conforming to).

During that SUP tour through the fog an idea was born and later refined in the sit:

Later this year, right now it looks like mid November I´ll hike major parts of the E4 trail on Cyprus, from Larnaca to the Akamas peninsula and the city of Polis, which is about 220km or 135 miles. At Agios Georgios I´ll exchange my hiking gear for a SUP board and paddle around Akamas, past Paphos and Limassol to finish at Makenzy beach in Larnaca just a few hundred meters from the start.
Right now I have all the equipment I need for the first part, though I don´t have a board, no one tagging along in a boat for safety, and no plan “B”.
On the other hand I have the power of my subconscious that already has started working in mysterious ways, bringing circumstances, friends and strangers together to make this happen and I know that I know that I know, come November I stand on exactly the right board on exactly the right time and enough people follow, share and contribute so that the greater project can be launched on schedule before the year is at it´s end!

Of course I write about the experience as often as I can get to an internet connection (if You have a satellite to spare, please let me know) and do my best to get this adventure over to You alive and kicking.

If You think I can do this or not, if You want to contribute and can or can´t do so, or just want to put a though out there, PLEASE comment below and share with Your friends what´s going on.

Mahalo, I appreciate You!

The end of the beginning

The last day of the MKMMA Live Event we got a 30 day follow through program to help us deepen and enhance the experience. Together with the exercises we received some good news and some bad news…
The good ones being that this is easy to do 🙂
The bad ones that it is equally easy not to do 🙁

I instantly made the decision to DO them and, man, am I happy I did!

Don´t worry, I´m not going to ruin this for anyone by telling You about the exercise – just that they helped me thoroughly evaluate not only my MK experience, but my entire life experience so far and made it really clear to me how I got to were I am and where I´m heading.

Let me tell You a story:

A little over 15 years ago I got involved with Network Marketing for the first time, it was a health company and I was approached in my capacity of a medical professional. At some point during a training we were supposed to define what we wanted to contribute and my instinctive answer was that I wanted to affect 1 million people in a distinctly positive way. Needless to say I had no clue as to how to even get close to that number and at the time “how” was very important to me. So I got on with my life, got pretty successful selling the products, never managed to build an effective team and did my best to “forget” or rationalize away the idea of helping a million people.

Long story short, I got out of that company and over the years I worked with a few more, some deals turned out pretty well for me and a few (that were “ground floor opportunities”) folded and went south.

Having been into training a major part of my life and working as a manual medicin professional for years and years the next logical step was to expand into functional training and I started to plan a project where I wanted to provide teenagers with free access to a training and wellness website while financing this by selling the same service under another name to people over the age of 20. Needless to say this never got of the drawing table, just to many challenges at once while juggling the normal day-to-day-stuff of running a small business…

All the while I´ve seen the development in our society from the point of view of a manual medicin professional. Only 15 years ago I saw almost exclusively clients who had actually DONE something out of the ordinary to need my services. Today that applies to few people except athletes who train on a very high level.
Most people I met the last 10 years are in pain for living their daily life, going through their routine of work, commute, enjoying free time and leisure activities.
So what changed? Well the daily routines did, the way we live our life in the modern society did and most of all the way we move (or not) and fuel (or not) changed immensely.

And what does all this have to do with the MK?

Well, I honestly think that everything happens for a reason, that every time we make a choice it leads to the next opportunity for choosing and that every choice shapes how we will choose next and that habits are stacked onto habits until we are controlled by our habits.

Back to Og for a second:
“As a child I was slave to my impulses; now I am slave to my habits, as are all grown men. I have surrendered my free will to the years of accumulated habits and the past deeds of my life have already marked out a path, which threatens to imprison my future.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, Scroll I

Everyone who´s been through the Master Key Experience knows that habits can be changed and how this is done. On the other hand we also know why we so often failed to change in the past .

“Work is necessary – labor, hard mental labor, the kind of effort which so few are willing to put forth.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 7:4

During the past four weeks of going through The 30 Days Thought and Action Plan my mind went back to the thoughts mentioned above time after time and I could not let go of the urge to really make a difference for millions of people health wise, what was still missing was the approach.
Everyone knows that it takes internal motivation to change our habits and I think You´ll agree with me that most adults of today are indeed to caught up in their daily lives to muster that motivation. Even if they learned that better health is actually quite easily achievable.
In his book “Outwitting the Devil” Napoleon Hill talks about what he calls “Hypnotic Rhythm” as the last state of habit that cannot be reversed or changed easily.

“Q: And if I did surprise you and publish it, how long would it
be until you lost your kingdom?
A: Just long enough for one generation of children to grow
into understanding. You cannot take the adults from me. I
have them too securely sewed up. But if you published this
confession, it would be sufficient to keep me from gaining control
of the yet unborn and those who have not yet reached the
age of reason.”
Napoleon Hill, “Outwitting the Devil”, Chapter 6

So the answer must be to influence the young to help them establish healthy habits instead of copying the behavior of their parents.
After all we´re right now, for the first time in known history, looking at a generation with a shorter expected life span than their parents – not really an ideal role model for the future, right?

I´ve got a few ideas down, some people to contact for assistance and support and a weekend of silence in front of me to do some deeper thinking on the subject.

Oh, and BTW, I could use some help here – it´s a pretty big task 😉 – so if You feel this endeavor is something You´d like to take part in, please contact me!

To be candid with You I´ve always felt a little envy towards people who got this “greater than them selves” cause to work for. I always thought that must be awesome – and now I know it is!
I hardly really know were to begin this and now idea how to complete it, I´m just filled with a very fulfilling feeling of gratitude to the process that lead me to this point and am committed to continue trusting that same process.
Equipped with the knowledge, skills and methods from the Master Key Experience I know that anything is possible and thats a good start! Now it´s time to follow my bliss and see where it leads me, looking forward to an awesome journey!

Which leads us right back to our old friend Joseph Campbell:

Week 16 – To Believe or not to Believe…

Kindness

This week we´re focusing on kindness in the Master Key Experience, kindness that we observe around us and also our own kindness to others.
The effects are remarkable, already after a few days I felt more harmonious, happy and content with my life!
Of course it seems obvious now that this resource for happiness was always there for the taking, I just did not consider it until suggested in the MK.
I hadn´t thought of it, it was not part of my beliefs which leads us to the main topic of this post….
I remember a question I read many years ago in a blog post by Randy Gage:

“Does this belief serve me?”

As my life at the time was far from where I wanted it to be, I know the answer was: NO!!!

Challenges:

  1. I didn´t know what belief didn´t serve me…belief3
  2. I didn´t know what belief would serve me…
  3. If I had I woulnd´t have known how to change it…

That´s kinda defines the term tough luck…

Years later I took the Go90Grow course and in the “Think & Grow Rich” part of it I learned how a THOUGHT charged by FEELING create a BELIEF that causes an ACTION which produces a RESULT

BLUEPRINT

So this brought up as many questions as there were given answers:

  1. What results do I strive for?
  2. What actions are necessary to perform to produce those results?
  3. What beliefs do I need to create that will trigger the necessary actions?
  4. What feelings need to charge my thoughts?
  5. What thoughts do I need to entertain?

And that helped a lot!

So where do I go with this?Always do_

Well, there is probably as many answers to that question as there are people reading this blog post. Everyone has, or at least should have, different answers to the questions above and that goes for the last one as well.

The reason for that is that we have to DECIDE!!!

Decide what we want! What we need to do to get it! What we have to give up! What we are willing to give up to reach our dream! Decide what feelings we want to feel, what emotions we want to experience!

Remember: DMP + PMA + WPOA + MMA

And then… Determine what is the  discrepancy between where we are and where we want to be!

“The difference between my current reality and my vision is defined by the gap between the person I am and the person I am becoming!”

And the gap can only be closed by thoughts, which means we are in total control of closing it!!!

“17. Therefore, to control thought is to control circumstances, conditions,
environment, and destiny.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 16

Screenshot 2014-01-11 23.08.47

So lets go about that:

“18. How then are we to control thought; what is the process? To think is to create a
thought, but the result of the thought will depend upon its form, its quality and its
vitality.
19. The form will depend upon the mental images from which it emanates; this will
depend upon the depth of the impression, the predominance of the idea, the clarity
of the vision, the boldness of the image.
20. The quality depends upon its substance, and this depends upon the material of
which the mind is composed; if this material has been woven from thoughts of
vigor, strength, courage, determination, the thought will possess these qualities.
21. And finally, the vitality depends upon the feeling with which the thought is
impregnated. If the thought is constructive, it will possess vitality; it will have life,
it will grow, develop, expand, it will be creative; it will attract to itself everything
necessary for its complete development.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 16

So let us connect back to “belief”:

Skärmklipp 2015-01-17 00.12.50
(click on the pic for expanded view)

What this tells us is that the word stems from the verb “leubh”: to care, desire, like, love(!)

So do You LOVE Your DMP???

Of course You do!!!

And that´s all it takes, remember:
a THOUGHT charged by FEELING create a BELIEF that causes an ACTION which produces a RESULT
