MKE ~ Week 20

Lately I’ve been noticing more and more of these small indirect common occurrences and I wanted to point one out, because being aware of what is happening around me is a direct reflection of the knowledge I’ve gained during the MKExperience.

Back at the end of December I decided to create my own yearly planner because everyone else’s version didn’t suit my new lifestyle. One of the things I decided to implement was cool sayings or motivations that I have come across. One of them I found that I put in my planner was “I will persist until I succeed.” Come to discover that this saying is in scroll three of The Greatest Salesman in the World. Now I didn’t know that this saying was in the book until a few weeks ago when I finally got to scroll three.

There is a power of the unknown being tied to a future known.

Keep your ears and eyes open and in the end, it will all make sense!

Until next time….

MKE ~ Week 21

Cool situation that I wanted to share…I had been involved in a fitness challenge at my gym for 5 weeks. The prize for the top 3 finishers was a 7-night hotel stay in Mexico, so I went into the challenge with my MKE mindset. I did all the things I was supposed to do like eating right, checking in daily, and showing up to my workouts, but as an added bonus to this challenge, I worked every day visualizing that my name would be on the list of winners! With 50 people in the challenge, I came up as one of the winners! The day of the announcement I sat for a minute and just smiled at how cool it was that I manifested my outcome! I certainly wasn’t the biggest loser in the bunch so being on the list was confirmation that I can manifest my future 🙂 True Health & Legacy!

MKE ~ Week 19

I Am….

This movie had a great message. I do remember growing up always hearing that all parents wanted for their children was to be happy. This is something definatly not taught in school or the medical world in our country. I love how other countries and cultures grasp this concept early on. We need to tone back the technology advancement a bit and spend more time with our loved ones, friends and communities building a group of happy people 🙂

….and now that I know it exists, when I retire I’m moving to Denmark to go live in co-op housing!

MKE ~ Week 18

Thankful…

I find my self feeling thankful during the webinars because they are always re-encouraging me to stay on track. I find my old blueprint contently getting in my way, but some days I get right back up and keep pushing forward. The messages I receive from other members and my guide is also a great support system that I’ve never experienced in the past when trying to work towards a goal.

Always the message I need, right when I need it!

MKE ~ Week 17HJ

It’s hard to juggle two things at once.

I started the MKE assignments weeks after most. I’ve been playing some form of catch-up every week to try and keep my head above the MKE waters. I am committed to this experience and know how lucky I am to have the advantage to work with every one on Mark’s team as well as the mastermind groups (which I’m at fault for not taking advantage of.)

I struggle to do my assignments everyday and when I do get them done, it is usually only my morning assignments like the SIT, reading the MKS Lesson, BPB, POA, Service Card, Law of Giving and 30 minutes of who I intend to become and the 10 minute demanding of self-confidence. I have yet to do my afternoon exercises and my sacred evening routine is scattered at best.

The other challenge I started along the way was a fitness/nutrition challenge through my boot camp. 5 weeks of eating whole foods and getting in my workouts. Well, the eating whole foods part has taken up my life, I feel like. I feel like I spend most of my day working on food intake. Preparing, cooking, eating. I’m also challenged with doing food prep for the week. Which most say is the best form success.

I’m not a cook. My husband, God bless him, has always taken care of that. But, now i’ve put that on my shoulders, as much as I can so that I can be accountable in this journey.

Juggling two things at once is hard. I’ll push onward and upward, keep on keep’n on and I will succeed.

MKE ~ Week 17

I got sick week 17. I couldn’t get anything done. I thought of my assignments every day as well as my lessons from MKE but had little energy to get all my items checked off my list. Being sick always throws me off my rails. It is hard to motivate. Everything felt like a chore. I feel like I’m failing myself by not giving 100%.

But…I will keep trying. I’m not perfect yet, but I will work towards it.

MKE ~ Week 16

Procrastination, hesitation, wavering, delaying. This was the theme of my Master Key Experience the first half of the course. By week 12 I realized that I needed to make a decision. Be in 100% or move on and try later. I have diligently put in an effort on a daily basis to catch-up with my assignments, daily tasks, weekly tasks and being more prepared for the weekly webinar. I’ve spent a good amount of time organizing all my folders, MKE work bag, checklists and the good’ol index card pile. I’ve created a system that keeps me organized on a daily basis.

After today’s webinar segment on all of us being extraordinary and that our soul is rooting for us, I encountered a moment of pride. I fell off the praverbial MKE wagon and got right back on and continued forward. I’m plugging away at being 100% caught up and on target.

I acknowledge that I have 40+ years of ” stinkin’ thinkin’ ” like Laurie said. I carried that old blueprint in with me for the first half of the course. I’d start something and quit along the way. This time I’m assessing and correcting and getting back on track. These lessons are too vital to lose and take advantage of.

An example of an old habit and a new habit…I used to set goals without any foundation and I’d do it for a week or two, maybe a month, then life would get in my way and I’d fall back into my old blueprint. An example of this is walking my dogs. I’ve had dogs my whole life. Never was it instilled in me to walk them, because we always lived with acreage or my mom would take them on her horse rides. When I was a young 20 something, I had a cute little St. Bernard puppy, who grew into a very large St. Bernard. At the time I lived in a 2 bedroom townhome with a backyard the size of a walk-in closet. During this period, I HAD to walk the beast, but that was the only short period of time I constantly walked a dog (2x a day). Later in life, after my husband and I bought our home, we had a decent backyard and that space became their area to exercise and do their business. Walking them wasn’t a necessity, so we rarely took them on walks. Within the last few years, I’ve discovered the health & behavioral benefits of walking dogs, but because of my old blueprint, I’d set the goal and flounder. I always let life dictate my time and there never seemed to be the time in my day to give to their walk. Since week 12, I have tied this service to Hill’s second blueprint item of concentrating 30 minutes a day on the person I intend on becoming. Now with much enthusiasm, I walk my dogs EVERY DAY, put on some good relaxing meditational/yoga music and think of the person I intend on becoming. It is a very peaceful time being outside, in the fresh air, seeing my future self and seeing my dogs enjoying themselves.

This used to be a chore! Now it is one of the moments in my day that I look forward to the most because this is the 30 minutes I spend seeing my DMP movie (I’m a great actress).

Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure.

Wishing everyone a steller week ahead!
