Master Key week 15.2 – Staying on the Path

So this is how it feels like, the day before starting my first 90-day-run ever for my business. Part eager to get started, part intimidated by the effort necessary to pull it of and mostly determined to see it through.

You might wonder what a 90-day-run is and basically it´s a system for kick starting (or re-starting) any business by doing the main thing a lot for 90 days straight. No weekend off, just do the work and love the overtime!
If You want to know more You can send me an email and I promise to get back to You!

Anyway I took the opportunity to spend one more 24 hour period in the woods, camping outside between Friday and Saturday. Admittedly I was a little stressed out from the first “real” week i Stockholm after more than two years (that is knowing that I´ll stay here until April 20th and have no sunny beach to look forward to in a week or so…) I messed up my plan slightly and ended up doing over 22km (about 14 miles) starting a 2PM. This time of the year that is 4 hours of hiking in the darkness.

Doing a hike through a dark forrest at night with only a headlamp lighting the way has a lot of similarities with life in general or going through the Master Key Experience as a member.

We determine where we are – here – and that we want to be somewhere else – there – so we find out which path to follow to get there. We build a mental picture of “getting there” and start our journey.

Most of the time we cannot physically see our target so we depend on holding it in our mind and follow the markers that 2016-01-08 15.09.17we believe lead us from here to there. Part of the road is easy, smooth and visible.
Every now and then we get to a part that´s harder to follow, maybe we loose sight of the mental picture or the markers we follow are farther apart. At times we might even get of the right path, our attention being distracted or our mind just relaxing enough to miss a sign or two.

Regardless if this happens on the path of life towards our chosen goal or in the dark forrest it´s obvious that the farther we drift from the path, the harder it is to find our way back to it.
I guess most members have felt this at some point when falling a little bit behinourdeepestfeard on the requirements, maybe a tad overwhelmed when new requirements were added in or just freaking out when getting more in contact with who and what we really are.

So what do we do when we get lost?

Get back to where we were still on the path, in the woods that means backtracking our own steps. In life just return to the point when we still followed the plan – if we had added in to much new stuff, strip it away again and start adding it back in at a slower pace that is easy to handle. It´s like a workout program, if You´re out of shape You might wanna start with just a few sessions per week, not working out 5-6 days in a row!

The interesting thing is that we grow to meet the tasks, when I first learned about this way of doing a 90-day-run I was 100% convinced that I would never plan to do one. I just seemed totally overwhelming and I got stressed just by thinking of it.
Today, just a few years later, my only concern is that it might not render the results I plan to achieve through the effort. I have no doubt in my mind that I can do the work!
And as focusing on behaviors, not on results, is the best way of establishing habits that lead to success – I feel pretty set!

And at the end of the journey we find our reward, it can be a shelter in the woods (actually the pic 2016-01-09 09.45.11is from the morning after sleeping in that same shelter), the achievement of a goal or manifestation of a DMP.
Or it can be the wonderful feeling knowing we did our best with the resources we had and became the best we could possibly become.

Either way it requires, absolutely requires, us to find our way back to our chosen path.

No matter what and no matter how far from it we already drifted away from it!

And at the end we find that “there” has become “here”, the “then” moved into “now” and however we long for the “there” and “then” we´ll never be really happy moving forward without embracing, loving and enjoying “here” and “now”!

Week 12 – Game Changer

“1. There is no purpose in life that cannot be best accomplished through a scientific
understanding of the creative power of thought.
2. This power to think is common to all. Man is, because he thinks. Man’s power to
think is infinite, consequently his creative power is unlimited.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 12

And he continues:

“4. The only way to keep from going backward is to keep going forward. Eternal
vigilance is the price of success. There are three steps, and each one is absolutely
essential. You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to
dare; third, the faith to do.”

So what is really said here is that every single human being, and that includes You and I, has an unlimited power to create anything we want from life and we do that utilizing a simple 3-step plan:

  1. We acquire knowledge of our power – eg stepping over the thresh hold
  2. We find the courage to dare – eg gathering (or rather creating) the information needed
  3. We develop the faith to do – eg collect a decision (from ourselves)

Step 1:
For me the first step was the issue for over 40 years, it started to get solved through studying Outwittingthedevil ThinkandgrowrichNapoleon Hills “Think & Grow Rich” and “Outwitting the Devil” and the real breakthrough for me came with “The Master Key” and this course.key_1
I acquired knowledge of the power we all share and accepted that I not only have power but am part of the strongest force in the universe, infinite intelligence!
So for me step 1 came out of studying the truth to the point where it washed away the lies I´d been told!

Step 2:
So where do we find the courage?HillDefinitenessofPurposeScroll
For me it came out of my DMP, deciding on what I want, getting great help (and, boy, did I need some help in the beginning…) in developing this into a real blueprint for my Subby to work with. AND (drumroll) finally realizing that I manifested one of my PPN´s!!!
I´m just about finishing the complete re-write of my DMP with one changed PPN and, candidly, I just know that everything there is manifested in the future!
Accepting that I can decide on my future and start working on manifesting it provides me with all the courage needed.
I mean, my future self depends on me finding that courage, how could I possibly let my friend down???

I guess it´s all about being kind enough to the future me to not leaving him to take care of the crap I should have taken care of myself and rather have him inherit the wonderful loving life he and I both deserve and are born to live!
Me, in a chat with Mark J on Skype December 6th

Step 3:
“Staying faithful to the exercises is applied faith” – paraphrased from Mark J

So by doing the exercises we are actually proving to ourselves and our subconscious that we have faith in the outcome, thereby creating the faith needed to pursue our DMP.
Ironic, isn´t it, that the same action that is proof of our faith at the same time builds just that faith?

So, was it a little hard in the beginning to get the “drill” going in my life?
No, it was actually a lot more than a “little hard”!

Was it worth it?
You must be kidding!!!
If anything I´d liked to have been even more diligent, even more disciplined, done an extra read every now and then, finished the assignments even earlier.

Fortunately I have a choice to do that from now on, to do my BEST today so that my best buddy, the future me, will enjoy life even more, deal with more high quality problems with even loftier solutions and look back on years of love, harmony and happiness!
