Master Key Experience Week 13; Dreamers

They are the architects of greatness, their vision lies within their souls, they peer beyond the veils and mists of doubt and pierce the walls of unborn time. Makers of Empire, they have fought for bigger things than crowns and higher seats than thrones. “Your homes are set upon a land that a dreamer found.” Master Key week 13 introduction.

The preceding paragraph caught me the first time I read it a week ago and every day as I read it captured me more. “Your homes are set upon a land that a dreamer found.” Think about that for a minute, let it really sink in. Now look around your house. Look outside, at the exterior, the lawn, the landscaping. Look at the inside structure of your house. The walls, the rooms, closets, book shelves, look every where. What do you see? Do you realize that the house you are living in was your dream or vision if you built it or it was someone else’s dream and vision if you bought it from some one. Regardless it was some ones dream to build your house. Someone made a decision to be of service so you and I could live where we are living today. Here is that word again “Service.”

I can vividly remember the first time I saw the house I live in today. we had told the realtor what we were looking for and he immediately said I believe I know the place your looking for. It’s going to take some work but I believe it will work for you. He was correct that it was going to take some work but all we could see was the potential. I didn’t share with the realtor until later that for six years on my vision board I had the picture of a green building with white gutters, white trim and white doors to build my business out of. That green building getting on my dream board is a story in itself. When I was in my twenties I found myself always wanting what someone owned. I didn’t realize it at the time but it was a form of envy. What I eventually figured out was to be happy for others for what they had. To thank God for being so kind for giving them the mindset and financial ability to own that specific item and to give me the wisdom and knowledge to do what I needed to have a like item to build my business or live my life with also. Not theirs, the one God would give me the ability to own. Yes the green building is still on the property, much larger today and very functional. I can still see myself walking through weeds four feet high to get to the white walk in door. Entering the building a warm feeling came over my entire body. This building was ready to be of service and I was ready to go into action. The process of cleaning the ten acre property was an immense task but a very rewarding experience. The thoughts of “do it now” were in my mind all day long. The other thoughts were where everything was going to be placed and as we grew how I was going to add more building space. I could clearly see a well kept prosperous property that would be of service to many people. Yes the homes, property and business’s that each of us live in or work from were  created by someone’s dreams. How grateful I am that the world is full of “Dreamers.”

I have said for years what separates people is their “Thinking.” Being a part of this “Master Key Experience” has added a completely new level of thinking to me. I find myself not needing to be right all the time. Not desiring to give “MY Opinion” every time some one says something I don’t agree with or believe in. I have truly learned “opinions” are the ugly relatives of negativity. There is so many things that are in the process of getting better.

I am so “Grateful” for the Master Key Experience. Many times in my life I have studied and learned and when my learning reached a certain level I slowed the learning process and just worked night and day. My concern in starting this thirteen weeks ago was not would I start it but would I stick with it for twenty six weeks. Give two hours plus every Sunday afternoon. Do the assignments everyday. I did not want to start one more thing and not finish it well, to the best of my ability. Now I wake up every morning thirsting and hungry to get to my lessons to see what I can learn and apply today. One of the big things I had lost was my do it now attitude. I proudly can say now every time I see something that needs done a “Do It Now” sign is brightly shining in my mind. And dang it feels good to act on a task and finish it now!!!!

To my guide Sheila I say “Thank you.” Continue to push me, do not let up on me. We are now starting the second half.

To Mark and Davene and all the Master Key staff “Thank You.” Your materials and webinars are extraordinary.

Increase in me that wisdom Which discovers my truest interest, Strengthen my resolution To perform that which wisdom dictates. Franklin

I look forward to the future,

Master Key experience Week 12- Knowledge

Week twelve reminds us again that knowledge does not apply itself; we as individuals must make that application, and the application consists in fertilizing the thought with purpose.

Each week as I read the lessons they validate the success’s and failures I have experienced in my life. The success’s have always been fortified by cause and purpose. During these times work was never work but “Life.” Maybe a better way to explain it is “Service”. What I did during those times was of immense service to others. I never seemed to run out of energy. Get tired and needed rest yes, but my energy levels were always present.  Plus my mind was full of positive forward thinking thoughts. Success is about application. “Power is Knowledge Applied.”

A few lessons earlier Mark had us add, “Visualize my new reality as a service to others,” to the top of our DMP statements. Every one of these lessons brings me closer to God and a clearer understanding of Him. In my younger years as I read a great book it shared that the way to Greatness was to find a way to be of service to many. All of the Master Key lessons validate this statement.

Master Key Week 11 Belief and Faith

Jesus said “Believe that ye receive and ye shall receive.” Paul said “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

During the webinar this week I learned the true definition of “persistence.” Is persistence “not quitting?” Is persistence “just stick it out?” Definitely “NOT.” Persistence in its truest form is “Following A Definite Plan, Expressed In Continuous Action to the attainment of your definite major purpose!!!!” This is the difference between successful people and failures. Successful people have a definite plan and through Faith and Belief follow the Plan. Failures just hope, well hope is not a strategy. Successful people understand by following a plan things and people will come into place through thick and thin to make it happen. As Og says in the scroll, “The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Always I take another step. If that is of no avail I take another and yet another.” Continuous forward movement.

What are the Four Tiny Habits? The Golden Keys.

  1. A definite major purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment. Ask yourself, when in my life did I have a purpose that I fueled with desire continuously that it was not fulfilled?
  2. A definite plan, expressed in continuous action. ” Whoa” are you telling me I have to apply myself? Yes and when it is a definite major purpose it will not be work. It will be life. Your life will be fueled by an uncommon energy.
  3. A mind tightly closed against all negatives and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances. Protect your mind! Acknowledge not everyone is going to be your cheerleader. There will be many times you will need to say, “I Am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy.” Love those people be courteous and kind, they just don’t understand. It’s ok. Remember it is God who has given you this purpose. He believes in you. Believe in Him and have Faith.
  4. Friendly alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose. You have people in your life who you can share your purpose with and who will stay with you through thick and thin, deepen your relationship with them. If you don’t have those people find them. Mentors have guided and supported me in all my life.

Believe and have Faith follow your plan,

Master Key week 10 Abundance & Knowledge

Paragraph 23; Knowledge will not apply itself, you must make the application. Abundance will not come to you out of the sky, neither will it drop into your lap. 

The Master Keys teach us knowledge applied is power. This lesson again is a breath of fresh air. The length of this Master Key session is so important to long term change in a persons life. This whole ten weeks have been an extreme validation  of what I knew already but had for some reason stopped applying in my life. Even when you reach any level of success to continue your growth you must surround yourself with a mastermind. As I have read this lesson my mothers words keep ringing in my ears; “Jim surround yourself with good people.” Good people have been Angels in my life so many times. 

What is tied to Knowledge Applied ? Abundance. Abundance in all areas of life. What drives Abundance? A Definite Major Purpose that is cause driven. 

Here is what I am prepared for; to fulfill my Definite Major Purpose in my life. Fortified by a mastermind of like minded people. Acted upon through a well thought out plan of action.
