I remember when my daughter was younger and going through school; for me there was always a sadness when the school year ended and summer vacation began, and vice-versa. I was accustomed to the routine and activities of the season and when that season changed there was anxiety and sadness (and maybe even some fear) of what the new season would bring. I felt that way again as we moved from Scroll #1 to Scroll #2 in Og Mandino’s book, the Greatest Salesman. But after the first reading, those feelings of fear and anxiety vanished instantly because it’s all about the LOVE! Que the B-52’s and sing along with me…
The Love Scroll is a little ol’ scroll that we can sing together. Love scroll, baby. Love scroll baby! That’s where it’s at!
Alright, now that all of us Elvis impersonators have landed safely from our parachute jump into Soldier’s Field, let me recap Week 6.
We’ve moved into multiple and deeply different ways of influencing the subconscious mind this week. The amazing fact that we can actually influence our subconscious mind and reset our blue print to one that we choose is so important for us to keep in mind. We are finding the ability of “touching” or reaching the creative part of our frontal lobe within these last few weeks; that is, if we’ve been faithful and shown fidelity to the exercises, and not merely painting by the numbers and checking off the to-do list. Noticing and pausing to observe what’s going on and connecting/linking the shapes and feelings, realizing the experience of creating that new blue print, visualizing and letting it wash over us rather than just doing the assignments and checking them off the list.
FEEL the experience! Let it wash over us, and really feel the experience, not only feeling what it will be like to achieve our DMP and being a part of a master mind, but that we’re participating in our life right now. The moments that we’re stringing together with our study of Haanel and the exercises – is an experience, so let’s be in the experience, while simultaneously being an observer. This is such a remarkable opportunity for all of us to discover our true self and our own true gifts. We were given life for a purpose, created for a purpose, and as soon as we find our gifts, the purpose becomes clearer and clearer, and it’s thrilling to come to this realization through the MKEMMA. Mark encourages us, with enthusiasm, to keep it vital, dig in, dig deep, do our best not the best we can. Winners do their best; losers do the best they can.
Haanel 6:7 – “We are accustomed to examining the mechanism of the implements which we use for tilling the soil, and we try to get an understanding of the automobile which we drive, but most of us are content to remain in absolute ignorance of the greatest piece of mechanism which has ever come into existence, the brain of man.” Most people will never come to discover this, or experience their true bliss – what a terrible thing it would be for us to come to the cusp of this knowledge ourselves and decline to create a life of elegance and opulence effortlessly, so let’s dig in! Let’s learn how to harness this power and use it for the greater good. We’re standing on the threshold of greatness.
Wooden says that greatness is when someone maximizes their potential. We all have different but equal gifts. We just need to find our own personal gifts and do our best.
Let’s discuss the metaphors – have you bought into them yet? We need to live by them.
- Our Life’s Movie – we are the author, screen writer & director of our life, and like all movies, we need a poster. Our movie poster (not a dream board) will give our DMP vitality if we’ve been doing the exercises of what our life will look like. Link the shapes to our goals (shapes/colors/feelings). When we see the shapes around the house or outside in daily life, we’ll see of the movie poster and the feelings FLOOD back to us instantly. Build it with your heart – yeah, baby, yeah!
- Compass – This represents our Darma or DMP. We are either living by the clock or by the compass. It’s the pathway to our bliss, our purpose, it’s our hearts desire, follow it! Don’t let it get old. It tells the old blue print to take a hike as the new blue print gets clearer and clearer.
Haanel 6:18 – “The man who looks within instead of without cannot fail to make use of the mighty forces which will eventually determine the course of his life, and so, bring him into vibration with all that is best, strongest and most desirable.”
We’re providing ourselves multiple ways to create an earnest, burning desire; the first step of three steps of acquiring the power. We’re surrounding ourself with constant interruptions to the old blue print and creating an earnest demand that will protect us from the old blueprint, inducing the marvelous power within us.
AND, we need to master mind with ourself to bring the best out in ourselves – Guy in The Glass exercise; face him/her every night and ask ‘Did you do your best today?’ If we can we say ‘We did okay, we did a good job today’, then we’ve done well; and, we should always say ‘I love you (state your full name, not like in Blazing Saddles)’. When we start do our best, we’ll be looking forward to seeing him/her every night.
I love you, brother.
