Master Key week 17 – You gotta love Master Mind

Hey, as You know I´m usually a pretty up-beat and positive guy and admitting that I just have some of the absolutely worst weeks in memory doesn´t come easy…

That said (apologizing for being murky here, just not ready to write about the full experience) , life sometimes throws us a curveball that´s more difficult to handle and those are the times when preparation, skills and habits really hit the road.

If You followed this blog for some time You know that one of the first and foremost benefits I got was that I´ve stopped “sweat the small stuff” – and so it´s very interesting to observe my reactions when facing radical unwanted and unexpected changes in my life without having any option to influence the situation.

So, first of all I just love the gratitude exercise – finding the three things to be grateful for every morning (and journal about a positive experience or thought from the day before) really sets me up for finding more things to be grateful for and avoid getting stuck with negatives, habitually focusing on positives for years really helps when seemingly negative things happen.

Secondly, the drill has been so helpful – reading my DMP and POA out loud so many times has programed my mind to get the stuff that´s on the card done. Regardless if I feel like it or not (and, frankly, when it hurts inside it´s easy not feel like doing stuff), “just” because I keep my promises.
And it´s just amazing how I always feel a lot better about myself, the world and my life after I kept my promises then I would if I just didn´t do the work!

Think about this – only a year or so ago I found it hard to talk to 2 people/day even 4-5 days/week. Now, with my life turned upside down, I talk to 10 or more every day (yes, even weekends) and it feels easy!
That´s the power of telling Subby what´s supposed to be done after having trained it with proven methods.

Thirdly, knowing the difference between what I can control and what not and really (that´s for real REALLY) focus on the things I can do. Thereby letting the rest, and the results of my efforts, take care of themselves. As they always will!

And, last but not least, the wonderful people I mastermind with and who I got as friends because of this course. Especially Lance Botha from South Africa who helps keep me on track every single day through a short laser call in the morning.
I´m so grateful for him taking this time out of his schedule every day and this is a great contribution to my staying on track!

Best thing about that is that the law of compensation immediately rewards his kindness with additional success in his own endeavors!

For me combining the three quotes below sum up the benefits I´ve experienced over the last couple of weeks thanks to the Master Key.
I´ve surprised myself with how I´ve thought, felt and behaved while facing a devastating situation and I´m forever grateful that I did the work that over time put me in a place better than I ever imagined!
