MKMMA Week 14

The last of the holidays come and gone after today. It was a good time to finally make peace with someone who had made some serious offenses to me and I honestly didn’t feel he deserved my forgiveness yet I offered it anyway and strangely enough, I felt better.

Now  in week 12, I had a realization that I shared. It made more sense to me after hearing the “Strangest Secret” where we are told  it doesn’t take much to excel and stand out these days.

Earl also tells us that when we add value to people’s lives, we will realize our dreams. I know that I developed an ability to provide a service to others that I had almost given up on. Partially due to lack of persistence but mostly because I had a lot of mental hang ups. The problem is, I figured out that it is my purpose to help people to enjoy their hot tubs.

Why? I am very good at it and many people thank me for what I have done for them. Plus it is very satisfying for me to help these people with something that I find really easy to do. With very little effort and treating this like a hobby, I average about 2-3 new customers a month.

Now I suddenly find myself with no job income. I am not terrified but curious as to how all this will play out. Having the ability to provide a service that people want and need gives me a head start and all I have to do is provide a way for more people to find me.

Perhaps the events are a blessing because as they say a JOB typically means Just Over Broke. Being in a rut of living small has been a prison of my own making. I am thankful for this opportunity and to have a supportive wife.

Now, more than ever, I have a reason to “Do It Now” and success will allow me to give more to a good friend.

MKMMA Week 13

My old self often feeling defeat because of negative programming which has prevented me from taking charge and moving forward. We learn to ignore the negative and replace it with different thoughts.

Through persistence and focus on what I want to achieve,  I can create the life I want. No, this isn’t necessarily easy in some respects but living in doom and gloom is much more difficult.

I realized that I have the ability to use my talents to serve others and help myself realize my dreams if I refuse to give up.

MKMMA Week 12

Persistance, Forgiveness & What Is Right

Do it now and never give up have been taking root. When my wife suggests doing something now or later, I say let’s do it now and she joins in.

I also had a moment of realization that I have developed a talent over the years that I almost gave up on. That talent is making people’s hot tubs an amazing experience. This happened while my website had been blacklisted since the first of November but somehow I had received a couple of orders and an email thanking me for my help. Then an previous customer where I live had sold their house and moved away for 2 years, moved back into another house with a hot tub but will not use it until I transform it. I then had to ask myself why am I not using this ability to help a large number of people? Over the past 8 years, I have helped about 200 people in the US, Canada, UK and Europe and the majority of them have thanked me.

Why had I almost given up? Same reason I have never taken my photographic abilities too seriously. Sure I have made many people happy with my images and won many awards yet the voices saying you need to get a real job or my mind saying you’re not good enough have won.

Having the negative voices in my head were one thing, being with someone for 20 years who was never satisfied with anything I did was like having an anchor around my neck. I realized that I had never completely forgiven that person. There were also some other people in my life that I realized I still had resentment for.

Law of Forgiveness
To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists.

To be trapped in my own prison of un forgiveness and resentment for what has been a 25 to life sentence has been literally sucking the life out of me. Luckily, I have been shown how I have been self destructing and never feeling good enough over the last several years by the simple exercises of reading the 7 Laws of The Mind and writing down 50 things I have done right in my life on index cards to review. Seems all I could do was think of everything I have done wrong. How sick we are to build and live in our own mental prisons. This gave me a whole new focus and is freeing me up to get through the 7 day mental diet.

Realizing that I have done a lot of things right in my life has been difficult since we are wired to thing negatively  and it seems as if I had all but forgotten any accomplishment I made in my life. We must make a conscious effort to train our minds to think about what is right with ourselves and the world.

Law of Growth
Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

I finally feel the chains coming off so I can be free to be whatever I choose to be.

Thanks to Mark, Davene and Marea for helping me unlock the chains that have been dragging me down. I hope to see many others break free so their world will be a better place to live also.

 

MKMMA Week 11

Week 11 comes after recovering from an exhausting  work trip last week.   I enjoyed how weeks 9 & 10 were tied into this week.

So much to stay on top of to reinforce good habits, opinions and negative thoughts still creep in but I am aware of them and cam replace them. Definitely a lot going on and a lot of little things getting a bit better.

MKMMA Week 10

Week 10 came and I found myself on an unexpected work trip to Florida for the week which had me going for 12-14 hours a day. This didn’t leave much time for anything else but to reflect on the transformation process while driving between customers.

By the end of the week I was worn out but had lots of positive things to think about and to practice having thoughts of love towards those I came into contact with along with attempting to add value to them with my actions. My biggest challenge was to deal with Miami drivers that seem to have a love affair with their horns. In the end, I was able to let it roll off and not get upset and focus on helping those I came to help.

MKMMA Week 9

I understand that replacing old habits with new ones is important because no amount of reflection or awareness will accomplish anything without action.

I understand no matter how good an opinion is that it is still just an opinion. How many conflicts have been started by opinions? To rid myself of opinions is the only way I can get out of my own way.

I understand that I need to learn to truly love my neighbor because with just love, I can succeed.

At times it seems impossible to do these things but I understand that being aware and making the effort is what develops the ability to succeed at this. No excuses allowed.

MKMMA Week 8

To say this has been a struggle is an understatement. It is hard to believe how much baggage I have collected over the years. I realized I have numerous opinions and even though I thought I was a somewhat positive person, I have struggled with the 7 Day Mental Diet to eliminate the entertainment of negative thoughts in my head. One of the blogs I’m following really describes this well.

Then there is the nasty procrastination thing which is why we are told to repeat “DO IT NOW” and to write down little tasks on a card to do with a completion date. Starting with I promise to… and ending with I always keep my promises. Gosh how many promises to myself have I broken?

So many hang ups but my favorite blog this week narrowed it down to 2 words. STOP IT. Please take the time to watch the video on this post, it is not only entertaining but truly drives the point home

Thanks to everyone making this journey possible.
