Master Key week 14.2 – A little more than a year ago…

…I wrote this post on New Year Resolutions. Its still valid and I´ve had another year to work on my habits making some previous undesirable ones very desirable as well as the other way around.
Most important the continuous work has fine tuned my desires and knowing exactly what one wants definitely helps in completing the actions necessary getting there – even if these actions don´t always come naturally for our personality type!

Please enjoy:

So, it´s that time of the year again… End of one year and soon the beginning of a new, at least according to our western concept of the calendar.

What is it that makes this time of the year so special in relation to change for so many people in our society?
What  is the real difference between January 1st and, let´s say, November 11th?
Is there even any real difference or just a perceived one?

Anyone in for a resolution this year? What will it be this time?

  • Eat healthy?
  • Loose weight?
  • Quit smoking?
  • Start training?

Lots of possibilities so…..  Will it work out?

Everyone know most New Years Resolutions don´t get realized – we might (and, believe me, I´ve been there and done that in past years…) hang in there for a few weeks or month and then “something” happens….we get of track and never seem to get on it again….until next New Year!

So, how come?

By making a resolution we basically start a war against ourselves, a war against chemical addiction that has been in place for years, maybe even decades! A war we have no chance of winning!

“The conscious and subconscious are but two phases of action in connection with
one mind. The relation of the subconscious to the conscious is quite analogous to
that existing between a weather vane and the atmosphere.
Just as the least pressure of the atmosphere causes an action on the part of the
weather vane, so does the least thought entertained by the conscious mind produce
within your subconscious mind action in exact proportion to the depth of feeling
characterizing the thought and the intensity with which the thought is indulged.”
Charles Hannel, “The Master Key System”, Part 14

So, our New Year Resolution is the equivalent of trying to change the atmosphere by manipulating a weather vane – and that, I´m sure we can agree on, can never work!

Real change has it´s origin in the world within – a thought that´s coupled with feeling creates a certain belief that causes a specific action that produces a result.

“5. This puts us in an entirely new relation to our environment, opening up
possibilities previously undreamed of, and this by an orderly sequence of law which
is naturally involved in our new mental attitude.
6. Mind is creative and the principle upon which this law is based is sound and
legitimate and is inherent in the nature of things; but this creative power does not
originate in the individual, but in the Universal, which is the source and fountain of
all energy and substance, the individual is simply the channel for the distribution of
this energy. The individual is the means by which the Universal produces the
various combinations which result in the formation of phenomena.”
Charles Hannel, “The Master Key System”, Part 14

To create a different result we need to start with the thought and attach the feelings that build the belief supporting the action that needs to be taken to produce the desired result.
And that starts with deciding on a desired outcome, igniting this desire with feeling and thereby deliberately chose the belief that will lead to the action necessary to get the desired outcome.

“In truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the differences of their habits. Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure. Thus, the first law I will obey, which precedeth all others is – I will form good habits and become their slave.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, The Scroll marked I

“26. But the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you
cannot take one step forward and two steps backward, neither can you spend
twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of
negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of
fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking.
27. If you enter into the discipline necessary to bring about a radical change in your
life, you must do so deliberately, after giving the matter careful thought and full
consideration, and then you must allow nothing to interfere with your decision.
28. This discipline, this change of thought, this mental attitude will not only bring
you the material things which are necessary for your highest and best welfare, but
will bring health and harmonious conditions generally.
29. If you wish harmonious conditions in your life, you must develop an harmonious
mental attitude.
30. Your world without will be a reflection of your world within.”
Charles Hannel, “The Master Key System”, Part 14

This brings us to the question why so many people live lives with resolutions and no real change and for me this was a two step process.

  1. I honestly didn´t know better
  2. I was not willing (yet) to put in the work – frankly, real change is hard work…

“I will never consider defeat and I will remove from my vocabulary such words and phrases as quit, cannot, unable, impossible, out of the question, improbable, failure, unworkable, hopeless, and retreat; for they are the words of fools. I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind should infect me then I will work on in despair. I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep mine eyes on the goals above my head, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows.
I will persist until I succeed.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, The Scroll marked III

“I persist until I succeed!”

No room for a bail out here, backdoor closed, bridges burned…
No retreat, no surrender – I persist and I win!

“24. Yet there are many who are not ready to enter into the discipline necessary to
think correctly, even though it is evident that wrong thinking has brought failure.”
Charles Hannel, “The Master Key System”, Part 14

Week 25 – Oooops, was I wrong….

I remember when I had my first vacation that was longer then two weeks, it was in December 2011 and I traveled to Thailand (and through Thailand) for three weeks and found it immensely enjoyable. Even asked myself why I hadn´t done something like it earlier!
The interesting part is that this was almost 15 years into working my practice as a Dr of Naprapathy, having enjoyed quite some success during that career, though never feeling I could leave the clinic for “that long”.

All these years I did long weekends of during summer, worked between Christmas and New Year, only taking a week or two of every August to go hiking and unwind my spirit in the wild.

It was a choice I made, and I´m sure that choice helped me build my practice in some ways by being available – and of course I had all the right excuses ready for myself and others:

  • I don´t need to take time of, I like my work
  • Working in summer and during holidays is perfect as so many clinics are closed
  • As I don´t put on that many hours/week I don´t need vacation
  • ….

All of these points (and more…) are totally valid and true, that´s why these excuses worked for me all these years.
The big truth is, though, none of them comes even close to my real reason for never spending longer periods of time out of town… FEAR!

Fear to loose clients!
Fear to make to little money!
Fear to not being liked!
Fear to be out skilled!
Fear to not be good enough!
Fear to not be enough!

“2. Fear is just the opposite from money consciousness; it is poverty consciousness, and as the law is unchangeable we get exactly what we give; if we fear we get what we feared. Money weaves itself into the entire fabric of our very existence; it engages the best thought of the best minds.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XXIII

So, I never felt enough, never felt like I did enough, never felt I was good enough…
And I was never satisfied or grateful, just always chasing more!

Looking for something outside of myself to solve my lack of self esteem, entering business ventures and relationships mostly for the reason that someone wanted to work/live with me resulting in more or less dysfunctional situations.
Living without exemptions in the world without, searching for answers anywhere but within!

Filling the empty space with work (or busy work), training, booze and other distractions – ironically enough feeling my best when I was alone in the mountains, hiking with “me myself and I”.

Could have found a clue there, right 😉 ???

In 2010 something started to change in me, slowly and almost unconscious at first – I started to take a tiny, careful look at what I wanted, got out of a business partnership that had become very imbalanced and hit a record year after master minding with a colleague who had no ulterior motives. I even acquired the means to by a fun car, a Audi TT Quattro ´99, the one I still drive when in Sweden.
2011 my business as a health professional sky rocketed, I met my wife to be and hit bottom physically while preparing for the Swedish Nationals in Cross Fit. My body basically shut down its performance and I had to face the fact how much of my self worth was anchored in being physically fit and high performing.
Reaching an emotional low feeling I wasn´t even worth taking time from my therapist, whom I was actually paying to help me (besides that he is a good friend).

Despite all that my practice was thriving leading to another record year while I stopped digging and started climbing out of the hole I had put myself in. Rounding up my year with that trip to Thailand I mentioned above, giving myself three weeks traveling alone doing a lot of soul searching and thinking!

Few month later I got in touch with Mark J and Go90Grow, did a first run through pretty half heartedly, applied for the live event, took the course again and, over time, got more and more involved leading into the Master Keys Experience.

So, what´s the point here???

Well, thanks for asking 😉 – shows that You´re still here with me!

Early tomorrow morning we embark on a flight to the US after having spent 10 days working in Stockholm (2014 we spent 11 weeks total working the clinic) facing a 9 week long stay beginning with a road trip through the south western states followed by two weeks on Kauai experiencing both the MKMMA and Go90Grow live events.

The amazing thing to me is that we can do this because I was wrong before, I don´t depend on a steady income for living the life I want. I don´t have to be available, live on other peoples terms or belittle my own dreams to have a secure financial situation.
Most important it makes absolutely no sense to be of service for the fearful reasons I leaned back upon before.

“10. The power of attention is called concentration; this power is directed by the will; for this reason we must refuse to concentrate or think of anything except the things we desire. Many are constantly concentrating upon sorrow, loss and discord of every kind; as thought is creative it necessarily follows that this concentration inevitable leads to more loss, more sorrow and more discord. How could it be otherwise? On the other hand, when we meet with success, gain, or any other desirable condition, we naturally concentrate upon the effects of these things and thereby create more, and so it follows that much leads to more.
11. How an understanding of this principle can be utilized in the business world is well told by an associate of mine:
12. “Spirit, whatever else it may or may not be, must be considered as the Essence of Consciousness, the Substance of Mind, the reality underlying Thought. And as all ideas are phases of the activity of Consciousness, Mind or Thought, it follows that in Spirit, and in it alone, is to be found the Ultimate Fact, the Real Thing, or Idea.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XXIII

By concentrating on what I didn´t want to happen and trying hard to prevent it from happening, I did not only attract and manifest more of the same, I also spent so much energy that could  have been put to use working towards definite positive ends.

“It takes less energy to succeed than to fail!” Mark J

Especially not even knowing what success looks like for oneself, running around in circles trying to avoid whatever is perceived as possible failure.

The best part still is: All that time fighting to keep up, to stay in the game and be on top of things, I knew that there was something deeply wrong about it – I just couldn´t see what it was or how to get it right…
What was I pretending not to know?

Week 23 – Emotions and health!

So, for technical reasons this is gonna be a quite short post – my MacBook fell to the floor last night and the screen stopped working…
I connected a projector and can sit looking at the wall instead of a screen, let´s say its a tad uncomfortable for the neck.

On the other hand I´m impressed with my calmness in the situation, once more it´s a pleasure to observe how my reactions have changed.

Especially considering this weeks theme in the MK, Haanel describes how our thoughts and emotions affect our health.

“7. We are all using this power every minute. The trouble is most of us are using it unconsciously and thus producing undesirable results. The problem is to use it intelligently and produce only desirable results. This should not be difficult, because we all have had sufficient experience to know what produces pleasant vibration in the body, and we also know the causes which produce the unpleasant and disagreeable sensations.
8. All that is necessary is to consult our own experience. When our thought has been uplifted, progressive, constructive, courageous, noble, kind or in any other way desirable, we have set in motion vibrations which brought about certain results. When our thought has been filled with envy, hatred, jealousy, criticism or any of the other thousand and one forms of discord, certain vibrations were set in motion which brought about certain other results of a different nature, and each of these rates of vibration, if kept up, crystallized in form. In the first case the result was mental, moral and physical health, and in the second case discord, inharmony and disease.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XXII

Reading this it gets really obvious how a positive mental attitude does is not only good for business, it can literally be considered Life Saving!
Try the Mental Diet for Yourself and find out – just fill out the form to the right!

“13. The way to health is founded on the law of vibration, which is the basis of all science, and this law is brought into operation by the mind, the “world within.” It is a matter of individual effort and practice. Our world of power is within; if we are wise we shall not waste time and effort in trying to deal with effects as we find them in the “world without,” which is only an external, a reflection.
14. We shall always find the cause in the “world within”; by changing the cause, we change the effect.
15. Every cell in your body is intelligent and will respond to your direction. The cells are all creators and will create the exact pattern which you give them.
16. Therefore, when perfect images are placed before the subjective, the creative energies will build a perfect body.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XXII

Week 14 – New Years Resolutions vs. Real Change

So, it´s that time of the year again… End of one year and soon the beginning of a new, at least according to our western concept of the calendar.

What is it that makes this time of the year so special in relation to change for so many people in our society?
What  is the real difference between January 1st and, let´s say, November 11th?
Is there even any real difference or just a perceived one?

Anyone in for a resolution this year? What will it be this time?

  • Eat healthy?
  • Loose weight?
  • Quit smoking?
  • Start training?

Lots of possibilities so…..  Will it work out?

Everyone know most New Years Resolutions don´t get realized – we might (and, believe me, I´ve been there and done that in past years…) hang in there for a few weeks or month and then “something” happens….we get of track and never seem to get on it again….until next New Year!

So, how come?

By making a resolution we basically start a war against ourselves, a war against chemical addiction that has been in place for years, maybe even decades! A war we have no chance of winning!

“The conscious and subconscious are but two phases of action in connection with
one mind. The relation of the subconscious to the conscious is quite analogous to
that existing between a weather vane and the atmosphere.
Just as the least pressure of the atmosphere causes an action on the part of the
weather vane, so does the least thought entertained by the conscious mind produce

Charles Hannel, “The Master Key System”, Part 14

So, our New Year Resolution is the equivalent of trying to change the atmosphere by manipulating a weather vane – and that, I´m sure we can agree on, can never work!

Real change has it´s origin in the world within – a thought that´s coupled with feeling creates a certain belief that causes a specific action that produces a result.

“5. This puts us in an entirely new relation to our environment, opening up
possibilities previously undreamed of, and this by an orderly sequence of law which
is naturally involved in our new mental attitude.
