The Beginning of Something Great~
It’s been a week, since my long-awaited Master Key Mastermind Alliance (MKMMA) began. Back in June, I discovered a video on YouTube, and watched Mark Januszewski. I can’t say that I remember which video was the first of Mark’s videos that I watched, but what he said ‘rang true!’ He was as eager to ‘find success in the network marketing industry, and had a lot of great traits, like persistence, motivation, good attitude, and the like, but had failed five times. The thing that made a difference for Mark, was learning new ‘skills’ and gaining an understanding of the subconscious mind, which makes our decisions for us. Wow! I was learning a lot of new things I had never learned, and couldn’t get enough of this newfound information. Over the summer, I watched all Mark’s ‘skills’ videos, typing the skills out in a word doc, so I could ‘etch’ everything into my memory bank. I learned about Mark’s ‘once every three years’ MKMMA, and knew this was the next step I needed to take, to get where I wanted to go. Like Mark, I had a lot of the characteristics of success, but was stuck in failure.
The Journey Begins~
One of my favorite ‘self-help’ authors is Og Mandino, and one of our assignments is to read the 10 scrolls in ‘The Greatest Salesman in the World’ three times each day, starting with Scroll 1. Hmmm, I read this book twice over the past 20 years, but now I realize that all I did was read it. This time it’s different. I’m actually committed to the process outlined in the book. Each word has rich meaning, and is very personal to my life. Some of my favorite lines……..”Today I begin a new life.” “Failure no longer will be my payment for struggle. Just as nature made no provision for my body to tolerate pain neither has it made any provision for my life to suffer failure. Failure, like pain is alien to my life. In the past I accepted it as I accepted pain. Now I reject it and I am prepared for wisdom and principles which will guide me….” “And how will this be accomplished? For I have neither the knowledge nor the experience to achieve greatness and already I have stumbled in ignorance and fallen into pools of self-pity. The answer is simple. I will commence my journey unencumbered with either the weight of unnecessary knowledge or the handicap of meaningless experience.” “Herein lies the hidden secret of all man’s accomplishments. As I repeat the words daily, they will soon become a part of my active mind, but more important, they will also seep into my other mind, that mysterious source (subconscious mind) which never sleeps, which creates my dreams, and often makes me act in ways I do not comprehend.”
We all have a general idea of what we want to accomplish. I did. But, the years are piling up behind me and my ‘starting point’ for this journey was not where I wanted to be at this point in my life! I am committed to this journey, because it really is a decision to be committed to my Definite Major Purpose in life. “Legacy living” …….the things that really matter and make a difference, long after the last breath is expired. Let my journey begin, because it’s never too late to begin!
