Master Key Week 13 – The Truth is Everywhere

YOU CAN’T MISS IT

Once you know the truth, really, it’s not only everywhere, it becomes impossible to miss and seeing it makes me feel good…about me.

Master Key members are working hard, that’s no joke.   Over 200 people have already packed it in, a touch over 300 remain standing, scraping, learning and growing.  Pretty normal, because learning how to change is hard work, really hard work.   Most people what the rewards of an education but going back to school, post graduate school, is a shock…bravo to the adjusters.

These magnificent members, that’s no hyperbole by the way, are challenged daily but they “get it.”   Get what?   Unlike those who don’t have the time daily to dedicate themselves to

Succes is service
Succes is service

learning the Master Key, this remarkable group has figured out that if they want a different outcome, they’ll need to learn how to create change within…breaking mental habits that are 10, 20….40 or more years old.  To do it they must learn and help others.

The “get” that this process, breaking mental habits that made their future predictable…and unsatisfactory, and replacing it with new habit, no matter how difficult, is worth it…because not only will they create a new reality, one of their own choosing, the payoff is even bigger.   They’ll have trained their brain to effortlessly create change in the future.   It’s a two-for-one hit.

A couple weeks ago one of the members let me know that the 4 tiny habits that develop the larger habit of persistance was “anti-climatic” …persistence, which most people do not know, is not a characteristic or something you have or don’t have.   It’s actually a habit comprised of 4 tiny habits the members have developed and re-inforced for weeks.

ANTI-CLIMATIC

Anti-climatic?   Good grief.   The 25 year study of Napoleon Hill was based on this one thing and people that develop this incredible habit can, let me quote Hill here, “write their own ticket.”   Hill goes on to point out life will yield whatever we want with this habit, wealth in any one of the 13 riches of life…..or all of them.

Can anyone imagine having the ability to write their own ticket who did not have it before, having the habit that is the single difference between happiness, fulfillment and wealth plus piece of mind…and failure?   Well, these members have it and I won’t gush on about how hard they’ve worked…they have all earned it…and, like myself, they can see how everything is not only connected that brings abundance where ever we would like it…they can see the truth and how these things connect in everything that is flourishing…it’s almost surreal once you understand the truth and apply it.

Years back a wonderful movie, Jerry MaGuire was released….and everyone, well most everyone loved the story, loved Jerry and the performance of Cuba Gooding won him an Academy Award….but what’s really interesting is in 45 seconds or so of screen time, everyone really loved Jerry’s mentor, Dickie Fox.    How could this be?

From this great movie, once “show me the money” got burned out in our daily laungage the majority of the quotes, 5 tiny cameos by the Dickie Fox character, is what most people remember and quote today when that flick comes up in conversation.

Why?

Well, for people who understand the “truth” of being, of universal law…Dickie Fox is the man, plain and simple.  He’s DA MAN!

While the movie overall was about enthics and principles …it was really the Fox character who carried the bigger truth…the key to success in anything…the same thing these surviors of our challenging, once a year course, carries.   Dickie Fox quotes survive because the truth has a “ring” to it that is irresistible.

See how many pure truths you can pick up….how many connections you can link together  that spell out authentic success…something that is earned in the mind first.  You see, once you “know” the truth, you see it everywhere that good things are happening for others. How someone can call developing the habits that produce a mindset like this is beyond me but, hey, we keep working and love them all….loving them all is part of the “secret to success”   Long time readers of either of our blogs know we don’t believe there are any “secrets” but success sure plays in the minds of the masses as a “secret”…I guess people just think it can’t be this simple…..

 

 

CONNECTIONS TO START YOU ROLLING

If you don’t love everybody, you can’t sell anybody.

Our members learned this in both the “blueprint builder” and Scroll II of Mandino’s masterpiece, The Greatest Salesman in the World.

I wake up and say….this is one of the 4 tiny habits, a positive mental attitude from within.

Tomorrow’s another day….roll with it…..winning and losing are both impostors and have nothing to do with character.  Scroll III

I love my life, I love my wife and I wish you…..Dickie knows a rising tide raises all ships and the celebrating the success of others builds a success consciousness….Haanel, Law of Growth

Personal relationships….praising others and improving himself to be better at them…Scroll I

If this is empty….Scroll II, the last paragraph, eh?

So….members, for those stopping by….let them know how many nuggets you heard from Dickie that validate the same truth we’ve been working on together for nearly 3 months now…I know you see the truth everywhere….in these simple 48 seconds, BAM!

Share below the truths you see and how they play out for you….I’d love to know what you see that I don’t or see what I see but have found some cool ways to put these truths into your new reality…to forge a completely different outcome

Master Key Week 12 The Final Surrender

FINAL SURRENDER

The word “final” is so…so…final.   I can remember starting so many diets only to go sideways within a couple days and, after shoveling in some sugar, throwing the last few bites away and saying, “that’s the final time I have sugar, starting now.”

And we mean it.   Only to restart over and over.   So it never really was final and nothing ever is until the deep relief, not anger, swells up in the gut…and we know, we just know we

OK, I mean it this time
OK, I mean it this time

are done with something…we are no longer stating a preference, we’ve made a decision.

You know what I mean?   That relationship that we swear is over, one final statement only find ourselves in a “push-pull-athon” for a couple weeks or months.

All this time, up to week 12, I still has a tiny reservation.   I mean the diet thing is a perfect example…I knew focusing on food and weight was only going to draw it back into my life.   I knew I needed to replace, as Og talks about in Scroll I, that unhealthy habit with a healthy one and focus on it, the new habit….knowing, if I kept holding that and apply the Law of Dual Thought to it…the Law of Growth would take over and, presto, new habit.

The first sentece of 12 led to complete and unconditional surrender.   I mean, really, who likes to admit defeat.   And BAM!   There it is!   Conditioning.  We do we feel surrender is a defeat?   No matter, we do…at least most people do.

TWO SENTENCES

1. There is no purpose in life that cannot be best accomplished through a scientific understanding of the creative power of thought.

2. This power to think is common to all. Man is, because he thinks. Man’s power to think is infinite, consequently his creative power is unlimited.

I put the book down to really let what was going on internally run it’s route…it was more than mental, it was physical…that swelling in the gut where you know, you just know something is over.   And it was over.   Relief, some fear…but really, mostly, relief.

And that day…the true adventure began…and I knew, really knew, even things that did not work out actaully were good things, even though I might know how they were good…the setbacks and speed bumps and pseudo failures were all moving me to my purpose.

What was over?

Was surrender the magic lamp?
Was surrender the magic lamp?

I stopped denying that we are creative…that all the conditions in my life I had created by consciously or unconsciously holding those thoughts…that the Law of Growth was not some cute idea…the surrender, from sentence one, came in the phrase, “creative power of thought.”   When I coupled that with “Man is because he thinks,” my eyes well-up with tears…I did not know, at first, what I was really feeling.

So I put the book down and let is simmer…not trying to control it…just letting it do it’s thing.   A matrix of feelings, mostly old blueprint stuff tried to take over.   I gave it no resistance, just let is slosh around.

See, I realized that I was feeling something, maybe for the first time in my life, maybe not but I was feeling something I could not, instantly, define.   I was uncertain.  It is in uncertainty that we find wisdom…if…if we don’t reach for something comfortable, something familiar.   I knew, really knew, that all that fear based suff I was feeling was simply an imposter…trying to impose on my discovery…

So I sat…still

And I sat.

And sat.

WHAT IS THIS FEELING?

My eyes welled up again.   I had identified the feeling.

Freedom.

I was free of the bondage of self…free falling in uncertainty yet, for the first time, knowing it was only going to be OK, it was going to be amazing.   I knew, really knew that new vistas would be open.

If we surrender to the idea that we are creative….without judgment of our past..and that we always have been creative….and that we always will be creating our day, our life by the thoughts we hold…all I had to do was one simple thing.   Create something I wanted and not give another thought to what I did not want.

Surrender to the “truth of being”  is beautiful, not a weakness.

And so amazed as I sat there in the mid 90s that I knew, some how, that sharing the Master Key with others was what I wanted to do.   And I let my imagination run…and run it did.

I could see new technologies…somehow…people around the world would be able to mastermind with other kindred spirits who just weren’t buying “average” and we done with the world’s ideas for them…

OK…I’ll start one person at a time….[and I did]                                                                                               I’ll go back to school to teach better..[and I did]                                                                                        and then I’ll share it with groups in my home..[and I did]

Surrender birthed a rich flow of ideas
Surrender birthed a rich flow of ideas

And I started thinking about getting it world wide….and I looked at my computer and thought, “Someone will invent something…the methods will show up…I’ve just got to hold the intention”   And….[I have held the intention and people have invented stuff….]

And I remember thinking once people can attend from all over the world….we could have a retreat to mastermind together…to meet each other ….and it could be in an exotic place.

All that washed over me in a matter of seconds…and now, here in 2014, in an exotic place, Kauai, we are having our first annual retreat …and people will come from all 4 corners of the world…and make connections with others that help them with their lives…

Yeah, go figure, a guy like me seeing surrender as a victory…week 12…always a soft spot for that one, that wonderful moment in the mid-90s sitting at my kitchen table on Plum Island and letting the feeling…..LETTING….the feeling….just be there until I understood it.

Freedom from the bondage of self…check out the retreat … if you love adventure, you’ll simply love what we have planned to celebrate that great day I surrendered.

Week 11 – The Payoffs Begin for the Dilligent

THE DEBATE

For years the debate raged…but without rage.   Masterminds are so productive and powerful when there is true harmony.   The debate centered the “pay-off”

The Debate

Share the prize now or later?
Share the prize now or later?

POINT:  promising a pay-off that would insure success in all ventures and encouraging people to develop 4 tiny habits over a 6 week period…operating as if  the “promise” of a pay-off would be believed and the “insuring” of success would sweeten the pot more than enough to entice members to engage fully, daily, in 4 tiny actions

COUNTER POINT:  Inform the members excactly what the pay-off would be and operate as if their understanding of acquiring the bigger habit of persistence would ignite even deeper engagement in the 4 little habits.

FAITH

In the end we took turns arguing both points of view.   This is a wonderful exercise with a mastermind group by the way.   The arguing of both sides of a point does lead to wonderful enlightenment while reminding one that it is “purpose over ego” – very effective, try it out sometime.

What none of us could get past was faith.   I’m not talking about the kind of faith most instructors would like…faith in the teacher.   We’re talking about having faith in the members and really understanding what they’d been reading for two months was illustration after illustration of the steps to persistence.

At the core of the decision we made to share only that there would be a pay-off but not define it was both the seed and the battleship exercises.

The Battleship:  The promise of success in all ventures.   To imagine being successful with ideas members are getting a clear mental picture of daily, with effortlessness is the battleship.   The opportunity to “think” is thereby created.   What does that mean?  It means that by focusing on being successful, knowing one would be successful before they even begin is an ideal for most of us…and looking at what we were asking members to do, daily, is, really, a pratical application of that battleship exercise.

The Seed:  The 4 tiny habits, no matter how well one engaged, have been planted.   Something to build on…something to take a hard look at…and ask, “did I do my best?”  If one looks at that without judgement, great discovery abounds.

The bigger discovery we hoped for and the years have proven this to be correct, is that

Are you all in?
Are you all in?

many members have shared they simply did not do their best daily…and while regretting it to some degree, it was correctable regarding persistence with a little back tracking but there were no longer “half-baked” efforts moving forward…no more “doing the exercises as if they were a ‘to do’ list”…they moved all-in, daily.

Was it a trick or a lesson?

Does that really matter?   No, not to us.   The second half of the course has multiple progressions and combinations….all building to extrodinary pay-offs, really extrordinary and the “discovery” of a falsehood sets, we felt, members up for bigger successes by exposing a massive lie.

The lie?

You can’t be here and not be here.

The truth is you can be here and not be here.   Yeah, here I go again with the “whole is greater than the sum of the parts” speech.   You are in a Mastermind Alliance that has a specific “cause” …no matter how you engaged with the 4 tiny habits that develop the bigger habit of persistence, do better.   You are here, you are in this thing, you are part of something special or very special.  What makes it “very” special is you taking  everything you can by giving more than you ever imagined possible.

Give more…and you’ll get more.

You’ve already begun to develop a “habit” that less than 5% of the people on the planet, according to Hill, ever have….persistence.

Authentic persistence is Aladdin's Lamp
Authentic persistence is Aladdin’s Lamp

Practice persistence the rest of the way with each and every progression….we are running multiple progressions and have been for a few weeks….dig in, be persistence…especially that part about continuous action…you don’t have to think about what to do…it’s all spelled out for you each week.   The treausres that await you cannot be found, they must be earned…you’ve got the “map” but as Og points out, the “map” regardless of the detail, will not carry you over one inch of ground nor yield the treasure that is waiting for you to claim in.

And one more thing…the “continuous action” in the persistence formula is really driven by that buring desire Hill wrote about…that earnest deisre Haanel wrote about…more gusto with those DMP reads….more often….you’ve got so much more to give….and I promise that the pay-offs will dazzle you…and that’s not the best part.

The best part?

The best part is that the treasures will be yours!   You will have earned them with the “hard mental labor so few are willing to do”  Haanel.   And better yet, the more you give those treasures away that you earn, the more they will return to you…
