Week 17/18 Vacation Time Away

Time away…..We went to Tulum, Mexico

It was a great vacation and break away from winter, a chance to recharge. I did bring “The Greatest Salesman” with me along with DMP, blueprint, service, 4 promises. I did complete them about half of the time and for the most part was relaxing and letting my mind go and to relax.

Really no break throughs and no big AH-Ah moments. Just sun surf and sand.

We visited the Mayan ruins in Tulum. Very interesting to visit and learn about people who were there hundreds of years ago. Our guide told us about how the Mayans grew to a large empire in the area and had trade routes and eventually got so big that they had an age of decadence that used up all their resources and eventually caused shortages and food shortages due to their extravagance. I could see how that very thing is happening now and that history and maybe even human nature doesn’t seem to change be it the Mayans, Romans or us today. We seem to go so far and grow so big that we eventually collapse ourselves and scatter into little nations only to repeat the pattern again in some new form.

Week 16 Kindness

Kindness: the quality of being friendly, generous, considerate. A kind act.

kindness2

This week we were asked to focus on not only practice acts of kindness but to also observe and look for kindness. A far cry from what I usually look for as I am usually wrapped up in my own life and focused on the next task, job or family thing I have to complete. (The Clock)

So it was a step back from just focusing on me and my agenda and to concentrate on kindness, giving and focusing on others. (The Compass)

What did i experience this week was that I was not so tied up with deadlines and watching the clock. I was focusing on other things and looking on how I could give without expecting anything back. Trying to give random acts of kindness without being noticed. So I bought people’s coffee who were in line behind me, put money in the parking meters. I generally do random acts of kindness so this week I decided to up the ante. I’m not a good blood donator as I usually get really nervous, light headed and pass out but I decided I would do it anyway. I was determined to make it happen and to push through my… I guess you could call it fear or anxiety. I did give blood, I did almost pass out but it was way better than the last time twelve years ago and the nurse said I would probably be even better next time so come on in and try again.

I will take that as a win.

The big part of my week was sharing and giving of my time and my knowledge to others. So for the whole week I shared, taught and coached people in regards to real estate investing, landlording, finding investment partners and also in what I have been learning in a course I am taking called Go90Grow which is all about learning the right skills for network marketing.

This was a big leap for me as I have always been good at talking with people one on one but speaking to a group actually terrifies me!

I have had something in me in past year pushing and prodding me towards talking to groups of people and I don’t know what it is or how to describe it, but for some reason this week with focusing on kindness I was driven to do this. To give of myself, to put myself out into an uncomfortable, unfamiliar space and do it! just do it for them.

I never planned or was looking for this week to be about me at all.

I focused on what I could do to provide the most good and the most giving. What I experienced was when I focused on doing for others I ended up pushing myself into areas I had been resisting for a very long time. I broke through my barriers by focusing on others because I didn’t want to let them down, because it was about others and I didn’t have a chance to think of me or my fears.

Week 15 Into the Black Hole

The Black Hole of Fear is trying to take hold. My old habits coming in…scarcity, no luck, your not good enough, what if no one is buying, what if your investments collapse, looks like the economy is going to get worse, the price of groceries is going up, maybe you can’t do it, maybe this is not for you, you can stop now and try something else.

How do I snap out of this?

I stopped.

I stopped everything I was doing, i stopped the thoughts, i stopped the process.

I sat down grabbed my flash cards and put some music on that amps me up! I went through the cards looking at what I have done in my life and what I have been grateful for in my life.

It’s still there, the negative wants to pull me into the black hole of despair. NO! NO! I’m in control and I’m going to starve you till that connection dies off. Screw you negative/old habits I am in charge!!!

I pull myself out of that mind set and I scream it out loud NO FREAK’EN WAY AM I GOING BACK!!!!

I read my DMP. I say to myself , Why am I hear? What am I doing? Why am I doing this?

I read Chapter Fifteen part 3,4,7 in The Master Keys

“Difficulties, inharmonies, and obstacles, indicate that we are either refusing to give out what we no longer need, or refusing to accept what we require.”

“Growth is attained through an exchange of the old for the new, of the good for the better; it is a conditional or reciprocal action, for each of us is a complete thought entity and this completeness makes it possible for us to receive only as we give.”

“All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials of further growth.”

HUH, I am in control. I decide….Hmmmmm

Time for a sit and to be still. I sit for a while not keeping track just being in the moment.

It comes to me, I am living the change I want in my life and the reason I am getting pulled back is that it is my old blueprint my old habits that are mounting an attack within me. An all out attack trying to get me to go back to my old pattern, trying to pull me back to the black hole of what was.

Ah-Ha!! I’m aware of what is going on and I do not allow it to continue. Break Through!!! BOOM!!!

All that negative/old habit junk melts away…..

The new blue print/good habit marches forward, VICTORY!

Week 13/14 Family Christmas

Griswold-House-700px

Over the Christmas break and Holidays I focused on giving. Giving of my time, my full attention and of my knowledge to those around me. I focused on hearing what friends and family had to say and not so much on what I had to talk about. I listened and was engaged with the person that was talking not fidgeting with my phone or looking over their shoulder at what was going on but actually focused on the moment.

Sometimes family and family gatherings can be charged with emotions and my family is no different. So I focused on going into the situation with a clean slate, leaving old emotions at the door. What I experienced was peace. I was an observer and a listener I had no opinion and wherever I could I gave. I can honestly tell you that I did not feel waited down with emotion. Someone would comment on a past event or someone is this or that or the economy or government or whatever and I would listen or choose not to listen and walk away. Wow, it was nice to do that and not let my EGO get in the way and try and voice or push my opinion onto someone else.

Christmas was fun, relaxed and non confrontational, a peaceful Christmas Who knew there could be such a thing.

When everyone had a chance to talk about themselves and everything else then they would turn to me and ask me how I was. It was usually near the end of the evening but by then I think they had talked themselves out and were willing to listen. That was my chance to talk and share with them how I was learning and changing my life with Master Key. I was able to let them know what I was discovering, how I was moving forward, how frustrating and wonderful at the same time it was to be apart of very amazing course. Some people were engaged and some were not and that was ok. I was not there to convert them or push my agenda onto them. I was there to be with everyone and to share what was going on in my life when asked. It was refreshing to not be involved with the negative stuff and to share what was happening positively!!!

Week 12 My Bridge

This week has been full of wins.

PHYSICAL WINS

Someone shoveled the snow from the vacant house. I received in the mail a special mortgage renewal rate and it was exactly what I was going to go in and battle the bank to get but the war was already won.

reading part 12 of the Master Keys Mastermind Experience and thinking on the valuable words written.

Part3
We know thought is building for us the thing we think of and actually bringing it nearer, yet we find it difficult to banish fear, anxiety or discouragement, all of which are powerful thought forces, and which continually send the things we desire further away, so that it is often one step forward and two steps backward.

MENTAL WINS

This part alone describes the back and forth battle I am currently in. Like a boat in a storm going back and forth. The difference is I know and I can see the light on the horizon and I constantly steer my boat towards the end of the storm. It does not matter how many times I have to correct course or how many times that sea sucks me backwards I still head towards the end. Why, because I have too, I have to keep going and I cannot stop myself. I need to come out the other side and just knowing that helps create a calming effect, my compass.

I build the bridge
I control how it is made
If it is to be made at all
I build it, whether I am aware or not
By my thoughts
What I focus on
It gets built
