For things to change you have to change. It sounds pretty simple. If you think about it, it really is simple. So what’s the problem? Why haven’t you done something about your present circumstances? If you’re not happy where you are in life do something about it.
I’ve had many conversations throughout the years with friends, family, co-workers and in some cases total strangers complaining, whining, complaining, and whining. All sounding like a scratched record. I guess the old saying; “Misery loves company” is true.
“Hold in mind the condition desired; affirm it as an already existing fact. By constant repetition it becomes a part of ourselves.”
I guess change is easy. What makes it difficult is the guy/gal in the mirror. Many of us make life much more difficult than it should be. The reason why I think its so can be summed up in one word. Truth. Most people don’t or refuse to make a thorough self-inspection. They are afraid that the cause of their misery is closer and easier to solve than they are aware. After all, why the constant invitation to there pity party. I respectfully decline.
“Truth is mighty and will prevail.”
If the truth is the underlying principle in every business or social relation, then I had to be truthful with myself. These folks were holding me back. Sometimes disassociation is the most difficult thing to do, but the most liberating thing to do.
“I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.”
WOW! I like the sound of that. I can visualize how my life is right now and tomorrow. Join me! You’re invited to enter the “Secret Place of the Most High.” Can you keep up with me? It requires a change of pace.
“Thought results in action. If your thought is constructive and harmonious, the result is good.”
Most people have goals. Many never accomplish their goals. They give up at the first sign of failure or they are convinced to change course. Many times the change of course is brought about not by outside influence, but by the person in the mirror.
There is a destructive tenant that is allowed to occupy our mental home. This destructive tenant is bad news. It’ll convince you that your tomorrow is not going to be better than your today. Just like the alcoholic who falls off the wagon, you reach for the “feel good” bottle. You intoxicate yourself resulting in destructive behavior. You conclude by saying, “Life is meant to be just the way it is.”
Oh if there was only someone who could come to the rescue and evict this destructive tenant.
Lucky for all of us there is the long arm of the immutable Law that has the ability to evict this destructive tenant from your mental home. You will be able to freely choose what you think. You will be provided with an assistant to prevent this destructive tenant re-entry into your mental home. You will develop a shield protecting you from destructive tenants wreaking havoc in your life. This assistant is called Imagination. Constructive imagination will steer you in the direction that blocks destructive thoughts leading to the future you desire.
In order to maintain the power of constructive imagination working in your favor at all times it will require mental labor. Constructive imagination, considered to be the hardest kind of labor, will be developed by exercise. No pain, no gain.
Have you ever thought of an idea and shared it with a close friend or family member? You thought they’d join you in your excitement and urge you to go forward full steam ahead with your great idea. You could just hear them say, “Gee, why didn’t I think of that?” Suddenly you’re disappointed. They say it’s not such a great idea. In fact, they talked you out of it. Bummer! You walk away and continue with your life. That trusted person had no vision.
Try that with a child. The child doesn’t know or understand failure. Children are dreamers. They have vision. When I was a kid I was superman and batman. I ran around my house with my towel wrapped around my neck. That towel was my cape. I jumped off furniture because I was a superhero. You couldn’t convince me otherwise. In fact, my mother cleverly convinced me to eat my beans because all superheroes ate their beans. Beans gave me superpowers.
Many adults are zapped of their dreams. No vision. They do things they hate but continue doing them anyway. I bet you know someone who goes to a job they despise or live in an undesirable neighborhood. They complain about it, but do nothing to change.
“You Can Be What You Will To Be.”
Just like a superhero, you have the power to change your circumstances. You can follow the simple steps that will allow you to tap into who you really are. It’s as easy as 1,2,3.
By the way, you don’t have to do this by yourself. Forget about miserable people. You have millions of silent mental workers ready to help you. And if that’s not enough, there are millions more ready to be called to help. You will develop faith. You are a superhero! It’s all Childs play.
Every movie begins with a thought/idea. The movie goes through a vigorous revision/editing process. It eventually winds up in a movie theater. The movie is then nominated for and eventually wins the Best Picture award. But very few people, if any, ever think about the process. Have you ever wondered how some people whom seem to have it all get their start?
I remember the days when I was buying all the real estate properties I could get my hands on. Most of my family and friends would say, “Gee, you’re lucky to be able to do the things you’re doing?” It was all I ever thought about… BUY! BUY! BUY! Talk about going on a shopping spree. I was craaaaazy. I didn’t care where or what condition the property was in. I was laser focused about buying properties no one wanted in the worst neighborhoods. I didn’t see a rundown building in a crime-ridden neighborhood. My vision went far beyond what was in front of me at the moment. I began my real estate journey with the end in mind.
We are creating our movie (DMP). Guess what? Your movie has a star and that star is YOU. In order for you to win the Best Picture award of your life, you must go through a vigorous revision process. Is it frustrating? Absolutely! Is it worth it? You better BELIEVE it!
“Every thought sets the brain cells in action. At first the substance upon which the thought is directed fails to respond, but if the thought is sufficiently refined and concentrated, the substance finally yields and expresses perfectly.”
Like the rays through a perfectly still magnifying glass focused on one spot for any length of time, the effects become immediately apparent. DREAM BOARD, MOVIE TRAILER, PRESS RELEASE, COLORS, SHAPES, SMART GOALS, INDEX CARDS, NUMBERS… BAM! A star is born.
Are you beginning to see a pattern here? I begin my blogs with a phrase or sentence that triggers an instant thought that I get from each week’s webinar. This one sentence brought me back to 1974. My father used to work in a factory. He retired from his job 35 years later. My mother had the toughest job on the planet. She raised three kids.
My father used to come home from work every night filthy. Many Saturday’s were no different. Talk about Mike Rowe’s “Dirty Jobs” television series. At a very young age, I knew I didn’t want that kind of a job. On the other hand, my best friends dad used to come home from work in a suit and tie. A sharp looking businessman.
Prayerize, Visualize, Actualize
There was a big difference between the two men. Their thoughts. My friend’s dad with the suit and tie and cushy, clean job lived in a rental unit in an apartment building down the street from us. My friend’s father took the subway to work everyday. He didn’t own a car. My father with the dirty job owned his home. A home that was paid in full. My father owned a brand new 1974 Plymouth Duster. Red in color with a black vinyl top. My father grew up in the mountains of Puerto Rico, spoke little English and had a 6th grade education. He was a product of a different system. He had a different mindset.
“You can originate thought, and since thoughts are creative, you can create for yourself the things you desire.”
My mother used to say that God created me. Since He’s the Creator of all things I can be whatever I wanted to be. Huh. Sounds familiar?
My brain was trained that it’s not what you earn, it’s what you do with what you earn. I knew at a very young age that I didn’t want a job. I found out later in life that what I wanted to become is called an entrepreneur.
“Half the battle is admitting you have an addiction”
I never thought of myself as being an addict. To the average person that word has so much negativity attached to it. But I am an addict. I am addicted to what I consider insane success. I use the word “insane” because many of the people closest to me think I’m crazy. Instead of being satisfied with the 9-5 grind, I have biiiiig dreams. I have “out of this world” goals. Hence, I must be crazy.
It was a little over 14 years ago when I was lost in my thoughts. I parked my car in front of my massive home. The biggest in the neighborhood. I walked into my brand new house. I walked into every room. I was mesmerized at the colors and details of every room. My wife stood in her beautiful kitchen. I stood inside my three-car garage in awe at the size of this massive garage. One month later I hired a builder to build me the house that I vividly saw before it was built.
I now know that my Neuro Nets were fired together in full throttle creating the relationship that was at the time my burning desire. Those Neuro Peptides were definitely running wild. Oh how insane!
I’ve abandoned my old self. I know that I am not crazy or insane. I’m just addicted to find my true self. My compass is pointed in the right direction to learn the proper instructions to create from within instead of responding from without. I can be what I will to be.
Hello my name is Noel Figueroa and I am a success addict.
When I first heard these words many years ago it had a profound impact on me. It allowed me to refocus attention on myself. If I was going to get the “ball” to advance toward the goal line, I had to look at the man in the mirror. There was one big challenge though… the “HOW”.
Master Key Lesson three takes this concept to another level. The watchman at the gate has to be on duty twenty four hours a day, without overtime or holiday pay, guarding against forces like the Internet, cable TV and well intended but unqualified opinions of others from entering and corrupting subby.
I sat. I thought. I was honest. I concluded that I allowed past failures hinder future achievements. I abandoned the watchman at the gate letting looters (world without) sabotage subby (world within). I was stuck!
My blueprint wasn’t as clear as I thought it was. I used words, which to my surprise, blocked the intended messages to subby. The “HOW” I learned is designed by the simple exercises and use of the index cards prescribed in the Master Key System.
“… the few moments spent each day on this new habit are but a small price to pay for the happiness and success that is mine.”
The difficult part of this whole process is that it’s sooo simple. Many have been conditioned with what I call the “Fast Food Mentality”. We want everything now. We want results yesterday. As the old saying goes, “What’s easy to do, is easy not to do.”
“… I must practice the art of patience for nature acts never in haste.”
I’m sure there’s more enthuuusiasm to come in the weeks ahead. Buckle up!
“I drink as instructed and spill not a drop. And the seed of success I swallow.”
I love the bridge analogy. Talk about an “aha” moment.
I’ve always understood that the subby was dumb. Come to think of it, maybe I didn’t. However, I never had the blueprint to recruit the forty billion workers necessary to construct/develop my bridge (DMP). I found myself on a bridge to nowhere.
I remember getting off to a great start when I embarked into my business venture some thirty plus years ago. I couldn’t place my finger on what triggered the events that eventually diminished the bright flame of Burning Desire within me. It was the “methods to determine intention” portion of the webinar that allowed me to understand that my foundation was flawed.
The Master Key Experience is allowing me to understand the proper way of creating my new blueprint to mobilize my forty billion workers. The formulas outlined in week two is beginning to open the vault to my new blueprint. I truly feel the enthusiasm as I prepare to execute these childish, yet profound daily exercises.
New Habit + MKS + GS = New Blueprint
If enthusiasm is the key to reigniting my BURNING DESIRE thereby resulting in a new blueprint, I’m feeling the burn. As Mills Lane used to say, “Lets get it on!”
I am not a fan of loooooong drawn out videos/webinars or those professionally trained copy writers who write exhaustive “story telling” nonsense. I’ve wasted too many hours watching / reading many of them to only find myself disappointed. I truly value my time. I refuse to sit and watch a long drawn out sales pitch.
I’m a simple man.
I didn’t know what to expect from Sunday’s Week One webinar. I thought to myself, “two freakin hours?” I was ready to click on that little red X, the “close” button, on my computer.
As 4pm (eastern time) fast approached, I leaned toward my computer. I was about to click the “JOIN WEBINAR” tab. As Dirty Harry famously said, “Go ahead, make my day.” I was ready. I had my finger firmly on the trigger. I’m going to click you out.
Three plus hours later, I walked away with a different mindset. The Golden Buddha video, the cement and dragons and other points too many to list in this blog. It all made sense. This was different. I was engaged. Like a good movie, time just seemed to fly. I was actually “listening” and following along with the webinar handout. I stuck around during the Q & A like a bystander at a crime scene. I was curious. I am impressed.
Network marketing is a challenging profession. Jim Rohn described network marketing as “herding cats.” The real challenge is becoming the leader you were created to be. As a network marketer, I was taught how to build a business the wrong way. And you were probably taught the wrong things too.
Think about it for a minute. When I was a full-time real estate investor I purchased real estate by non-traditional methods. Meaning I had to be creative. To be creative you have to develop a relationship with the person that was going to invest their money in you. That person will invest in you if they liked and trusted you. Of course your credit played a role, but if you had great credit but were not credible, you didn’t get the money.
Network marketing is no different. You must gain the trust and be liked by the people you do business. It’s that simple. Somehow that message was lost. As a result, frustration sets in and many people quit and give the network marketing profession a black eye. I don’t blame the disgruntled former network marketers. I place blame in the industry and many of the “gurus” that tell you to recruit your friends, family and everyone you come in contact (the 3-foot rule). As Dr. Phil would say, “How’s that been working out?”
If you are new or have been a network marketer for a few years and you are struggling, you must understand that your lack of success is not your fault.
After six companies and years of trial and error, I came across this powerful information that changed everything for me. It was that simple.
There is no such thing as shortcuts to success. But if you want a blue print to get you there faster, it all starts right HERE.
My wish for you is that you get the proper skills to get you started on the right foot, going in the right direction so you can build your business once and build it big to last your life, your children’s life and your grandchildren’s life. All you have to do is click HERE.
