This past Sunday we had our first webinar of the Master Key Experience with Mark Januszewski and his team.
We covered a lot of stuff. With the exception of a couple of internet connection issues, the webinar was great and covered a lot of cool stuff. We were also given several assignment.
One assignment I have been working on this week I have been going over Scroll I of the Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino. I am reading it 3 times a day this week. The first time is when I arise in the morning. The second time is at lunchtime. The third time is at night right before I go to bed, and the third time I have to read it out aloud. Doing this will help it sink more into my subconscious mind.
We are being taught to stretch ourselves and get out of comfort zones. This I like because there is no success to be found in the comfort zone, and you grow and become a better person when you do the uncomfortable things.
We are also being taught to change our thinking and influence our subconscious mind in a positive way. We are being taught how big an influence the subconscious mind has on the decisions we make, and most people are not aware of it. Most people think they are ruled by their conscious mind, and nothing could be further from the truth.
We are also being asked to meditate 15 minutes a day. I like this because meditation is used by many successful people, and it really helps your creative juices flow.
All of this sounds like a lot to do, and frankly it is a lot to do. However, I have learned that if something is very important to you, you will find time to take care of it. If you have a very busy work schedule and someone you like is interested in going out with you, you will find some time to go out with that person, no matter how busy your schedule is. We make time for the things that are very important to us. If we don’t make some time for something, it usually is not that important to us.
We are also currently going over the section in Napoleon Hill book, Think and Grow Rich, which discusses how Edward C. Barnes had a burning desire to be partners with Thomas Edison. He came to Edison’s dressed like a tramp and said he wanted to Edison’s partner. Edison gave him a low level and menial job, which Barnes took. Barnes never gave up on his burning desire to be partners with Edison, and several years later he did partner with Edison when . This story shows how when you have burning desire and never give up on it, you can truly accomplish your dreams.
Hill also shares the story about a warrior who took his army to fight an enemy with more soldiers. When their boats arrived at the enemy territory, the warrior had them burn all the ships and told them that with the boats burning, they either had to defeat the enemy or would perish, since they had no means of escape. His army wound up winning because that was the only way they could survive since they burned all the ships.
The point is people have to a burning desire to win and be willing to burn the ships and cut off all areas of retreat and pursue their dreams and not give up.
I am learning a lot this week and excited for the upcoming week’s lessons!
