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,

I Have No Opinion Week – 5

This week, I’m going to be the observer of my life and, ideally, give NO OPINIONS….verbally. As far as mentally, I am to recognize that I’m thinking of my opinion and I will dismiss it. I’m to be the “non-judgmental OBSERVER”.  If someone asks me for my opinion directly I can give a response, but it must be positive and kind.

I asked my wife today if she knew how many times the average person speaks their personal opinion generally about something or someone in a day? Before my wife could answer I said “A TON of times!” You know what I mean….for example, that woman in the car next to me that can’t hold a constant speed and keeps speeding up and slowing down while chatting away on her cell phone….I said aloud ”maybe if she wasn’t yapping away on that cell….um, wait, I have no opinion. I have no opinion. I have no opinion. I have no OPINION!”  I’ve programmed myself, unknowingly, to verbalize my opinions (most always negative ones) about other people’s bad driving habits. What a Hypocrite I am. Who am I to judge? I’m not a perfect driver.

I’ve been an observer this week of other people’s conversations….loaded with opinions!  Man, it is tough to bite your lip. I’d like to chime right in and agree or disagree with the topic at hand, but I think to myself “I have no opinion.”

Og Mandino, in “The Greatest Salesman in the World” writes “I am slave to my habits. My actions are ruled by appetite, passion, prejudice, greed, love, fear, environment, habit, and the worst of these tyrants is habit. For it is another of nature’s laws that only a habit can subdue another habit.

So, I’m on a mission…..that mission is to dramatically reduce my negative, verbal opinions and replace them.

I hope you’re having a great week.

Drop me a comment below. Follow my blog. Let me know if you’re like me and you have opinions too!

Thanks,

Ryan

Week-4 Excellence Is a Habit

shaq-excellence-is-a-habit

As I began to think of ideas on what to write about today, that pesky voice inside my head kept yapping away, trying its best to make me listen, trying its best to make me go back, to get me to follow my old blueprint, which I realize would lead me down the path of mediocrity.

“What could you think of that wasn’t written before? Just go to bed.”  That voice!….. grrrrr.

The truth is, that voice has been a part of me for years and years and sadly it ain’t goin’ down without a fight! I created this voice. My voice was created from all my past experiences, and what I told myself on how to feel about those experiences…good or bad.

We all have that voice in our heads, like it or not. I’m learning to ignore it. Block it out. Change the subject. If you’re telling yourself right now you don’t have a voice in there, ummm that’s your voice telling you that!

I’ve been taught that perfect practice prevents poor performance(ppppp)! We play how we practice. Right? So, I’m working and practicing to form new habits.

breaking-bad-habitsHaanel states in the Master Key System…Form the habit. Unless you do this, you had better not start at all, because modern psychology tells us that when we start something and do not complete it, or make a resolution and do not keep it, we are forming the habit of failure; absolute, ignominious failure. If you do not intend to do a thing, do not start; if you do start, see it through even if the heavens fall.”

This is exactly how I am forming new habits. Every week I come up with a new service. I have something that I need to get done. A chore. But, ‘chore’ doesn’t sound like fun so it’s called a service….that sounds better right?!

Exactly how I wrote my service for this week ‘Fertilize all fruit trees by October 23rd.’

And the process goes like this. Think. Write. Promise. Read. Do.

I thought what I wanted to do….fertilize the trees.

I wrote it down on the service card.

I promised 3 times per day that it would get done.

I read it on my card 3 times per day.

Done!

Every week we are going to add another service. And, every week the service will get bigger and better too.

It feels great to be in service!

The subconscious mind is more powerful than anything you can think of. So THINK of what you want to create for yourself. It’s up to you what you want to create.

I love comments….feel free to share your thoughts and maybe you thought of a service that you want to get done. I’d love to hear about it.

Thanks for reading.

Week – 3 Inconsistently Consistent…What?

I know….I am a week behind with my blogging as I type this. Cut me some slack, ok?! On second thought, Don’t…I don’t deserve any slack.

No Excuses!

Last year, when I signed up for my scholarship to the Master Key Experience course, one of the requirements I had to fulfill was to take a personality test. I didn’t question why I had to take the test, I just did it. Little did I know that I would learn so much about myself by doing this!

There are 4 colors in this personality thingy, blue-red-white-yellow, that specify what type of personality type you are.

I’m a YELLOW!

Some strengths of a yellow personality are: happy, sociable, trusting, fun-loving, carefree. <<Those are soooo me!

But, there is always a ‘but’, some of the limitations of the yellow personality are: uncommitted, self-centered, disorganized, impulsive, and inconsistent. And, this last characteristic leads me to what I would like to write about today….Inconsistency!

I’ve been inconsistent in the past in most all aspects of my life. One thing in particular is not doing what I said I was going to do.  But, the Master Key Experience has changed that. The funny thing is that being inconsistent is so easy and seemingly effortless to fix.

“Do It Now!”  I repeat this short sentence 50 times per day, out loud, with ENTHUSIASM! Repeating it over and over is programming my subconscious to not procrastinate and to be consistent on getting things done.

I read my Greatest Salesman in the World 3 times per day. I read my DMP 3 times per day. My index cards with tasks and services on them 3 times per day. I read the Master Key’s Once a day and I sit as Haanel suggests at the end of every chapter to get my mind right for the day.

I’m really diggin’ the course the second time around and I’m feelin’ good!

I’ll be back tomorrow as I gotta get my week 4 blog posted up…..because….I Get Things Done On Time….Consistently!

Take the personality test to find out what your color is. It’s free and it’s a ton-of-fun to learn about yourself.

If your a negative nancy and your glass is half empty…type in your name and email below and I’ll send you the 7 Days of Positive Thinking…aka…..The 7 Day Mental Diet and lets grow and have fun together!
