We Reap What We Sow

It has been a tough few weeks. We are in a review of the Master Keys this week. I’ve been feeling totally overwhelmed lately and I can’t put my finger on a reason why. Discouraging thoughts. Fear of the future. Will I be able to set out to do what I know I am capable of? What keeps popping into my head?…..we reap what we sow. Here is some proof from that we do indeed reap what we so. From The Good Book……

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. Galatians 6:7

As I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same. Job 4:8

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. Luke 6:38

I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds. Jeremiah 17:10

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:6

And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. Mark 4:24

It’s a darn good thing I have my personal “tools”…my DMP(Definite Major Purpose), the movie poster, the shapes, the positive affirmations, the POA(Plan of Action), writing gratitudes daily, the couple sentence journal written daily, on and on. These tools are getting me past my funk this week…..no doubt about it!

Part 9, Point 25 of the Master Key Book says:

“Whatever you desire for yourself, affirm it for others, and it will help you both. We reap what we sow. If we send out thoughts of love and health, they return to us like bread cast upon the waters; but if we send out thoughts of fear, worry, jealousy, anger, hate, etc., we will reap the results in our own lives.”

I will not continue to sow seeds of fear and worry into my world! I am sowing love and health to myself and all of YOU!

Thanks for reading.

Have a great week!

Peace Be The Journey

Back in the early 90’s I remember one of my babysitters taking me and my brothers to the movie theater to see Cool Runnings. The story about 4 athletes and their coach who had the determination to compete in the Olympic Games as bobsleders. Who remembers that movie? The film was one of my favorites growing up.

We were asked to make this weeks blog topic about the 4 habits of persistence and to review a movie(Cool Runnings) that supported these crucial habits.

Persistence.

Persistence is needed to accomplish anything you choose to undertake.

There are 4 tiny habits that you must have that make up “persistence”.

1) A Purpose – The team was determined to compete in the Olympics at all costs.

2) A Positive Mental Attitude – Derice was the definite leader here. Throughout the movie “NO” was not an acceptable answer for him. He persisted with his positive attitude.

3) A Plan of Action – The team trained hard despite living in Jamaica, never seeing ice before. They had a plan when they reached the trials and the Olympics to physically train hard in the harsh winter environment that they had never encountered before.

4) A Master Mind Alliance – No one succeeds without a mastermind! The Jamaican team had each other as a mastermind. They pushed each other to excel. It’s simple to give up if you are working towards something by yourself…but if you have masterminding partner(s) with you along for the ride you would find it difficult to throw in the towel.

I hadn’t seen Cool Runnings in years. This is hard to describe…..I am learning and growing personally everyday and when I watched this movie I viewed it from a totally different perspective. I saw the movie for the first time in a different light. I saw for the first time that there was no stopping these guys from fulfilling their goal. ‘Can’t’ was not in their vocabulary. They were unstoppable.

“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!” ~ Og Mandino

I appreciate the time you’ve taken out of your day to read this and I want to encourage you to go watch Cool Runnings again if you have seen it, or if you haven’t seen it before check it out and look for the 4 tiny habits of persistence.

Be careful of what you feed your brain, because what you think about and what you tell yourself is ultimately what you become.

Peace Be The Journey…..

Have Some Faith!

From the Bible   Faith – The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

From the dictonary -Faith – Something that is believed especially with strong conviction.

Henry Ford went bankrupt multiple times before having tremendous success with his creation of Ford Motor Company. Ford said, “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, either way, you are right”. Henry Ford believed especially with strong conviction that he would succeed. Had Ford not had tremendous faith in himself and his team in creating his Model T, Ford Motor Co. may not have ever existed.

Faith.

I had little faith in myself up until recently. My faith is growing slowly but surely. Let me share with you some things that have triggered a spark in this brain of mine.

Charles Haanal quotes Mark 11:24, from the Bible, in his book The Master Key System – “Therefore I say to you, what things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them”.

You must have a goal in mind, or something you want. Everything that has ever been created started with a thought. So, every night I sit still and quiet my mind and think of what my heart desires and I picture myself taking possession.

You absolutely must greet everyday with a positive mental attitude. I have removed words from my vocabulary such as quit, cannot, unable, impossible, out of the question, improbable, failure, unworkable, hopeless, and retreat as Og Mandino suggests in the book “The Greatest Salesman in the World”. Og says “for they are the words of fools”.

I’ve created a written plan of action as a “how to” achieve what it is that I want. This includes the details on how I am going to achieve my goal, how it would make me feel to achieve my goal, and a date as to when it will be achieved by.

You must be persistent. I’ve observed that every successful person in business invests all of their mind, all of their time and every fiber of their being into fulfilling their dream. They pour their blood, sweat, and tears into it. They ignore the obstacles they encounter. They pour their heart and soul into whatever it is they are pursuing. They are obsessed with their goals and dreams. Successful people persist until they succeed.

Lastly, create a mastermind group. Napoleon Hill defines a mastermind in his book “Think and Grow Rich” as “the coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony”.

Baby steps, slowly but surely, everyday I will persist until I succeed!

I would love to hear what you thought of this blog so please feel free to leave a comment below.

How’s your faith in yourself these days?

I believe in you!

Nobody Will Accept This Challenge!

New Year’s resolutions. Out of the number of people who create resolutions for themselves on Jan. 1st  how many of them will actually fulfill their goals?  Maybe a small fraction? I’m betting it’s a very low number of people. This post was written to help you tip the scales in your favor.

So, why do we wait until the new year to set goals?  Why not start now…today?

Let’s say I set a goal today to lose that 10 pounds that has been hanging around. I figure if I set that goal today and I can make it through Christmas and New Years without fail, my chances gotta go way up to losing that 10 pounds and fulfilling my resolution!

I’ve been taught to refrain from using negative words in your goal statement, add emotions to it, and to set deadlines. So instead of “losing 20 pounds”, say “I weigh 165 pounds and I look amazing by March 31, 2017. Oh, and remember from an earlier blog of mine if it isn’t written it isn’t True!

Write Out Your Goal/Resolution. Write it down. Hang it on your bathroom mirror. Read it multiple times a day….out loud! Sharing your desire with someone you know will help you to stick with it too! Do whatever you gotta do to get it embedded into your brain.

Persistence is key. Og Mandino writes in his book “The Greatest Salesman in the World”       “I will persist until I succeed.”

Read your goal statement multiple times daily. Add “I will persist until I succeed” at the end of your written goal.

While writing this I came up with my goal. Whenever I eat gluten(wheat, barley, rye) I feel sluggish and I’ve fallen off the wagon recently for some reason.  Well, as of right now no more gluten!

Gluten free and feeling incredible by March 31, 2017 and beyond! I will persist. I will succeed!

So, the challenge? I’m challenging you to write down some goals today, or this week, or how about right now!? Don’t wait until New Years….

Do It Now!

Do Your Best – Week 6

Mark J., of the Master Key Mastermind Alliance, says “Do your best! This is NOT to be mistakin’ for doing ‘the best you can’. Losers whine and say ‘I’ll do the best I can’. Winners just do their best!”

Coach John Wooden and his “Pyramid of Success” has been mentioned multiple times through this course thus far. If you haven’t heard of Coach John Wooden, I hadn’t heard of him until recently, he was referred by many and voted The Greatest Coach of All Time by his peers. He was noted, not only for his basketball coaching success at UCLA but, for coaching people in business and in life. I recommend looking him up…he was a remarkable human being!

Coach Wooden’s pyramid of success is made up of human traits and values that are needed to become successful. This was his guide to becoming great….at anything. Check out the pyramid here. The two cornerstones of the pyramid are Industriousness and Enthusiasm… Industriousness, meaning Hard Work, and Enthusiasm, showing intense and eager enjoyment in what you are doing. If you don’t have these cornerstones…chances are slim you’ll be successful.

Wooden’s definition of success is “peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming”.

I can see why Mark J, his wife Davene, and the rest of the crew talk about Coach Wooden and incorporate him into their course….they are truly doing their BEST to help us students become the best that we are capable of becoming!

Thank you for reading,

Ryan
