Loudly Proclaim – Wow! What a Ride! – Week 13

 What a ride? Have you been falling of the wagon?  It is not unusual during the holidays to become lax in some of the habits you have created.  The real question is, will you get back on the wagon and complete your ride?

Passionite_leadership_SkillsI suppose you could call it a near death experience — as I have certainly experienced an amazing recovery this week. And all thanks go to the wonderful team at Training Solutions LLC – talk about a booster shot!

I had fallen off the wagon, and back into the old addictions of self-deprecation and pity… turns out there ISN’T a road to recovery that doesn’t involve addiction… and thanks to the Law of Substitution I am back in the swing of things with an addiction to the MKMMA.

Now I am ADDICTED to getting out there and doing the reads – and to making SURE I get the services and P.O.A. promises done!

I suspect it was a portion of my subconscious that loves the number 13 which made week thirteen really connect all my internal systems – mind, body, subconscious AND conscious minds – with the philosophy behind the Master Key Mastermind Alliance.

That and taking over the entire detached three stall garage for my “readings”… ’cause, ya know – BE EPIC! (oh and #BePhenomenalOrBeForgotten )

yes-man-movie-poster-2008-1020412886And – that seems to be exactly what I needed.

When I look back on my decreased participation – and thus my MUCH reduced belief (Thought + Feeling!!) in what I was doing in the MKMMA – it coincided with the change in weather.

Weird… I know, but I had moved my reading ‘inside’ as Minnesota tends to get…cold, at least for those First and Last readings of the day,

and as I moved inside I had to be aware of my children sleeping first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening.

2940012693280_p0_v1_s260x420So I read to the (guy in the) bathroom mirror with “H.E.M.” – that’s supposed to work right? Hesitation, Emphasis, and Modulation – it’s supposed to help you connect with what your are readingsaying.  Though, I guess when you have spent decades clamping down on your emotions, that’s a bit like using a tissue to swat a fly – the motions are all there, they just lack a bit of IMPACT.

kant small

Best way to manipulate a group is to control the three sides…then synthesis appears to be THEIR decision.

Add to that the fact that I have “known about” H.E.M. for many years – and used it intentionally to connect OTHERS to what I was saying… my subconscious was having none of it.  I mean c’mon my Mother taught me about Hegelian Dialectics when I was in high-school and I read every book I could get my hands on about “body-language”, voice modulation, “Thesis – AnitThesis – Synthesis”… all ways and means to a manipulative end(s) — right?

I mean – I would have to accept manipulation – even of self – for this to “work”…

Combined with ‘misses’ on my P.O.A. and service card commitments as my intensity waned – my belief began to falter.  Having experienced it for almost three weeks now – I can tell you it is VITALLY important that you DO NOT put anything on those cards that you cannot – or will not (yet) -commit to doing 100%.

I know that no wealth or position can long endure, unless it is built on Truth and Justice. Therefore I engage in NO transaction that does not benefit ALL whom it involves.  MKMMA Blueprint Builder #5

If you do – you have entered into the realm of propaganda rather than self-improvement. We all inherently know when we are being manipulated – even when it is WE doing it to ourselves.  And in the case of our efforts with the MKMMA we must base everything on truth and justice.Having moved out to the garage – my morning and evening reads are completely un-tethered again.  Intensity is no longer an issue.  In the first few weeks of the MKMMA – my neighbors 1/2 mile away could hear me, now out in the garage – I wouldn’t be surprised if they could again… and I don’t have to allow ANY mental effort to be expended on concern for my kids sleep.  The Emotion is back in the reading – and the TRUTH buried in the words on my re-written cards can be extolled from the “mountaintops” again.

I am able to converse full out with the man in the full length mirrors set up ALL AROUND the garage – as I walk, shout, kneel, jump and dance – everywhere I can see the man in the mirror (my future self!) celebrating and commiserating (!!) with me as the layers (and years) of clay are F(reakin’) SHATTERED off of my self-image.

Take over the WORLD with your attitude and dreams.  Build big or go home – cause you only get one run through in this life.

From all of this I can absolutely state that you MUST do WHATEVER it takes to get emotion connected with your reading – and bring that ‘high’ into your sits to give your subconscious something to WORK with as it manifests the plan and connects the Universe to your demands.

Just keep Swimming- Week 12

Persistence, it is a common theme in the Master Keys.  If you want success, persistence will get you through the tough times.  This rings true especially around the holidays.  Schedules are filled with many things that call out your old blueprint and trip you on your hero's journey.  Here are some of  my insights from the first time through the course in 2014.

Week 12: Take Another Step


there is no testimonyMy experience with MKMMA has been a great journey with very few bumps in the road and some major breakthroughs and enlightenment.  That is until this week.  I am not entirely sure what triggered the fierce return of my old blueprint after so many weeks of building the new one, but it has been working to trip me up all week.  I have felt like I am spinning my wheels and going no where.  However I will NOT give up.  No matter how many failures I encounter, I will NOT give up.  I will fight with every fiber of my being because my future self deserves the life I desire.

it is ok to fall down

I have been hanging on to Scroll III.  I will persist!  I can relate to the young bulls being pricked by a picador.  Each day this week, my old blue print has been knocking me down.  I recognize that each day , my old blue print has been testing me.  It does not want to give up its hold now that I know the key to success and it is fighting for control.  I have had a very busy week, struggling to fit everything in.  It would be easy to look down on my struggles and failures, but that wouldn’t help me at all, so I read my index cards and make sure I end the day with a success even if I did fail at somethings.  I may be experiencing some failures, but I know if I persist, success hides behind all these struggles.  Always I take another step.  One step at a time is not too difficult.  I never consider defeat and I keep my eyes on the goal.

Each day I get to start new.  I will keep stepping one step at a time until I permanently stamp out my old blue print.  When I struggle, I will find solace in the Master keys, The Greatest Salesman, my accomplishment index cards and DMP to build my watchman at the gate back up.watchman

Tomorrow brings a new day and I persist.  I win!


I will persist

Patience, Persistence, and Perspiration: Week 11

Patience, persistence

Patience, Persistence, and perspiration are an incredible combination to help us obtain success.  I discovered this in the first round through the MKE  and it was huge for me  Here is another of  my posts from 2014.  I hope you enjoy the insights I had from week 11.

This weeks webinar was very emotional for me.  I was having an emotional day to begin with and I have not really pinpointed the cause and since it is in the past that no longer matters.  When Mark revealed that we have been building up to the pay off and we would find out on the webinar, I was really excited to find out what the payoff was.  When he said that all the work, if we had been diligent  has already instilled in us the 4 tiny habits needed for success, I was happy I had been giving it my all.  In fact this maybe the most work I have ever put into anything other than being a great parent.  He still had not said what they pay off was.  I was eagerly waiting to hear what it was.  When he said it was persistence, I had an emotional response.  It was one of mixed emotions.  On one hand I was surprised it was such a simple thing and on the other hand I was excited, because I knew I had been persistent and I could continue to be persistent. I got chills to know I had the power in me all along and now that I know it there is NOTHING I cannot accomplish if I set my mind to it.


As has been the case throughout the course, the Master Keys fit hand in hand with the webinar.  In Master Key 11:17, 11:25, and 11:35 we see this quote from the Bible

“Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24”

All the exercises leading up to this week has been strengthening my belief in receiving all of the things I desire.  I now have a buzz inside me when I think of my future.  I know I have a lot of hard work ahead of me, but that buzz is so thrilling, almost intoxicating, and I can hardly wait to get to work, now that I KNOW I have what it takes, PERSISTENCE, to get all my desires.  As Og says in Scroll III,

Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road.  Never will I know how close it lies until I turn the corner. Always will I take another step.  If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.  in truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.  I will persist until I succeed.

Now that I know I have what it takes to succeed I WILL NEVER STOP.  I have already seen the Law of attraction working in my life and I am fired up for what the future has in store for me.

I will persist


Affirmations are the Best way to Fail – Week 10

Admit it - you've heard them.  Perhaps you've even used them.  But please - PLEASE - tell me you haven't fallen into the belief that Affirmations - in and of themselves - have some magic Mo-Jo that can bring you everything you've ever dreamed of in life.

That somehow, by merely stating something over and over (and over...) you can magically manifest a state of being as a goal in life.​

Seriously? Can you share some of whatever it is that you've been consuming?

​Perhaps if we define the problem with Affirmations as Goals, it will become more clear.  Especially as affirmations can be an absolutely essential part of your overall success plan - though they can't be the end game so many people see them as.

There are four parts to success:

  • A Definite Major Purpose
  • A Positive Mental Attitude
  • A Plan of Action
  • A Mastermind working together

In the first item, a Definite Major Purpose, the intent is to create a series of Goals laid out in the form of a Document that describes our future Reality.

In order to do this we need to be able to state what it is that we want our Reality to be in terms of S.M.A.R.T. Goals that even a child could clearly understand.

Thus to be a goal, it has to meet these criteria:

Specific : is it stated in a clear, concise manner that does not vary in it's interpretation?

Measurable : can your goal, your definition of a future reality, in fact, be measured consistently and without ambiguity​

Achievable : this one is more ambiguous in terms of discerning the "problem" with Affirmations as Goals - but, is the Goal actually achievable in terms of the Universe we play in?

Timed : any goal without a deadline is merely a dream.  Without the pressure to actually produce our subconscious will always take the easy road...no deadline, why work hard?​

Realistic : in relation to the other parts of a SMART goal - is your desire realistic?

So where do affirmation statements like the one below fit into that list?

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.

In terms of a Specific, Measurable, Timed Goal - how does one measure the definition of "perfect"? "strong"? "harmonious"? perhaps 'Happy'?

The reality is that none of those things can be defined consistently across any two people on the planet.  

Therefore the content of an Affirmation - in and of itself - cannot be a 'goal' as it describes something un-measurable and variable to each person that recites it


While they do not, in fact they cannot, create the reality for you, Affirmations help build a personal belief that such a "state of being" is possible.

Click to Tweet

Our Reality - that Specific, Measurable essence expressed in how we interact with the external universe in which we exist - can only become manifest through the effects that such a belief makes possible. 

 Our subconscious is always looking for something to Create, and in a document like our Definite Major Purpose we are defining those things we wish it to Create for us.

Take for instance a statement like :

“I easily make financial decisions that bring abundance into my life.”  

Without a date - when would this statement 'have to' be manifest?

“On or before January 1st 2017, I easily make financial decisions
that bring abundance into my life.”

Would pennies at a time be an acceptable manifestation of reality?

“On or before January 1st 2017, I easily make financial
decisions that each bring $1000 or more into my life.”

So... once every decade? Perhaps you meant year...how was your Subconscious to know...

“On or before January 1st 2017, I easily make daily financial
decisions that each bring $1000 or more into my life.”

Once your Subconscious has manifested a goal - it easily becomes an Affirmation, and you should consider - for purposes of a Definite Major Purpose - changing or removing it to allow for the next big change in your reality!  Because, in order for Subby to Manifest an affirmation (as statement of fact or 'being') ‘continually’... it may have to manifest a state of being that is the opposite!!


Planting the Seed of Imagination- Week 9

Planting the seeds of imagination is critical to manifesting our Dharma.

Without a clear mental picture, we are leaving our creative mind to drifting with no clear direction.  The sit for week 9 helps us focus on building up mastery of using our imagination.

It is really interesting to be the observer and to go back and see where I was and how far I have come on this journey to my future self.  This week I am including my blog for week 9 from 2 years ago.  The exercise to plant and grow a flower within our minds eye during our sits is one of my favorite sits throughout the course.  It amazes me how much I learned from this exercise the first time through the course.  I hope you enjoy reading about it and would love to hear how your experience with this exercise was as well.

Week#9- Visualization is a Product of the Imagination

Red Sunflower

This weeks sit exercise is to visualize a plant, a sunflower for instance, and bring it from the unseen into the seen.

Visualization is the mechanism of the attachment which you require.  Visualization is a very different process from seeing; seeing is physical, and it is therefore related to the objective world, the “world without,” but Visualization is a product of the imagination, and is therefore a product of the subjective mind, the “world within.”  It therefore possess vitality; it will grow.  The thing visualized will manifest itself in form.  The mechanism is perfect; it was created by the Master Architect who “doeth all things well.’  Master Key 9:15

I really like this exercise as it lets me think of warm spring days with the sun beaming down and gentle breezes blowing.  I could feel the warm soft dirt on my hands as I planted the seed and smell the earth.  It was very vivid to me.  I plant a garden every year and I could relate to the exercise very easily.

I decided to visualize my spirit as the seed I was planting. I dug a hole in the dirt and placed my seed in the fertile soil and covered the seed of me with dirt.  I saw the water that was soaking into the dirt around me as nourishment, the master keys.  As the outer layers of the seed coat softened and let in the water, I realized it was the cement from my cement Buddha falling away and letting in the concepts to nourish my subconscious.  The water was these concepts and as the seed filled with the good thoughts it swelled and sprouted my roots and stem.  The roots were my subconscious lengthening and reaching for more, going to work to help grow this seed into the wonderful flower it was destined to be.

As I took in more water, my stem finally burst through the soil into the bright, warm sunlight, the Master Creator.  He was looking down on me and radiating his love onto me.  I was being fed from below the ground by the water and above from the Master Creator.  I continued to stretch toward the sun, growing my first sets of leaves and climbing ever closer to my destination.  I could feel the sun soaking into every cell of me and nourishing me as well as the water rising through my stem to reinforce the nourishment.  I kept climbing and developing.  Now I have many branches with leaves and buds are beginning to form.  My roots dig deeper and my foundation is firmly set in the ground.  Soon the buds begin to increase in size and the blossom burst forth in all its glory.  The sunflower, my spirit, has made its appearance in the world and I look on the Master Creator for the first time.  For the rest of my days, my gaze stays steadfast on the Master Creator, following His perfect plan for me.  I can feel the energy flow through me from the Creator to my roots.  I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.

sunflower poem

This was a very powerful visualization or me.  It made Master Key 9:33 alive for me

When you are enabled to make your vision clear and complete you will be enabled to enter into the spirit of the thing.

I truly could feel my spirit in the seed and feel the energy flow through me as that seed grew into the sunflower.

Embrace these exercises and let your mind go to work for you.

Destroying Battleships Again… Tearing Them Down Piece by Piece- Week 8

Destroying Battleships Again… Tearing Them Down Piece by Piece.  One of both Don's and my favorite exercises is the battleship exercise.  From this exercise we have discovered the tools to take any goal and tear them down to the basic elements necessary  to build that desire. It is great to look back at what we discovered the first time we were assigned these exercises.  Here is Don's blog from 2 years ago.  We hope you find insight form it.

MKMMA – Week 8 – I see Plans within plans – The sleeper Awakens!

dune-quotes-understood-process-first-law-of-mentatI've been destroying battleships again… tearing them down piece by piece.  Ripping into the heart of them in an attempt to understand what made them… In the end I discover this grey, unyielding behemoth is nothing but cold lifeless assemblies…

built by the minds and dreams of others

Built for the purposes of yet others behind the scenes

to protect or destroy according to the will of others.

I've been destroying battleships for days now – I am getting better at it, finding the nooks and crannies as yet intact – peeling them open and gazing inside to find the plans and dreams of others have hidden there too.

Up until today it was just a ship.

Until today it was ‘just an excercise' – a plaything of the mind that might provide insight – though remaining simply one more chore to complete…

DD450-1-A Constructing the Battleship Today I realized something.  As I mentally lifted pieces apart and set them aside I began to realize – if I really wanted to take my DMP and make it real – I had to take a cue from this process.  I had to admit that amazingly stupendous things can and ARE built from the dreams and imaginations of great minds.  Though more often than we realize, until we've torn that hatchway open enough times, they are built by people who have no knowledge – no thought – given towards building their dreams.  Having never known of, much less journeyed through, a course like the Master Key Master Mind Alliance – these people spend hours, weeks, years, and sometimes their very lives, building what amounts to the results of other people's dreams.

So here I am tearing apart another battleship – and it hits me.  It's me. Each layer of the hull that comes off reveals a little more of myself – not just the un-populated galley-ways of an emotionless hunk of metal, but the empty and unfulfilled dreams that used to enjoy frolicking in an unlimited imagination – and are slowly uncovered (dead? perhaps not yet?) buried here in me.

article-2336822-1A2DD175000005DC-951_634x478Now I'm pissed – shredding into the wiring that makes this machine function without care – following the cable trays and race ways of miles, and miles, (and years…and years) of wires laid down in pursuit of building someone else's dream.  How can this be. Why was such a thing constructed – to what (whose?) benefit have its pieces been accumulated – thrust together by my unknowing effort and the expense of time – of life (my life!) in its doing.

The pile of mangled steel and tangled wire is building around me in my mind.pile_of_scrap_metal_with_crane_11fh1519rf

As I dismantle this thing, walking around it, grabbing the next piece with realization of it alien-ness to the vibration underneath.  I begin to notice that it's not all gray, lifeless, otherness.  There is an energy within – perhaps the coal-fired furnaces that power it.  I lift off yet more pieces – eager now to get at that which makes this construct of other people's dreams tick… perhaps I can find out WHY.  Why was all this built around and within me – enveloping my dreams, usurping their proper place and ultimately making of me … someone else.

imagesI think therefore I CAN be what I will to be I am.  At first, as I peel back these final layers, it is merely a rhythm within the sound of my beating heart.  The excitement mounts, grasping this last layer – and that rhythm becomes more distinct: “I can be what I will to be.  I can be what I will to be… I CAN be what I will to be… I can be what I will to be.”  It's a thought we have been repeating over and over, part of our morning ritual..and it's purpose and power became very evident as I mentally shifted  -DO it NOW- a final shield out of place to reveal that white hot, pulsing (yet blindinly beautiful) power within.

Today I am reminded of the first thing we read when starting this course, this unbelievable journey of self-discovery:



As the tears well up, realizing that these dreams I have uncovered as I destroyed the old facade that was me are NOT lifeless, another piece clicks into place – another step on the journey has been irrevocably taken.  I decide today to be an observer of the plans and actions requested of me for purposes not my own.  I decide to gently, firmly, and with intent – plant these dreams in the newly tilled, fertile soil of my imagination – and care for them as they, as I, deserve.  Now that the knowledge is had it cannot be taken away from us. Now that we are aware of the wonderful things that CAN be built with our lives – I think it's time to take them back and build some wonderful things WE choose.

I choose to follow my dreams, to chase them down and, catching – achieving- manifesting them… to lift them up high and let the world see the amazing, wonderful, limitless ME that CAN BE all that I will to be.

Peace be the Journey people –  #BePhenomenalOrBeForgotten

Thanksgiving turkey

Thanksgiving, Is it sneaking up on You?

Thanksgiving turkey


Wow, Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks from today!  Time seems to be screaming by these days.  This fall has been  warmer than normal, so Thanksgiving snuck up on me because it still feels more like late summer to me.

Thankfully, there is 2 weeks to prepare for this holiday focused around giving thanks for all that we have been blessed.  I find that being gluten-free, preparing ahead of time is essential to having an amazing experience for your Thanksgiving meal.

Let me help you have the Ultimate Gluten Free Holiday.


Visualization- Finding Our True Selves- Week 6

Visualization of our true selves can be a challenge when we are not used to the exercise. One of the things we love about the Master Key Experience is that we are all on a journey to finding the truth of our heart and we form a common bond.  Through the masterminding and sharing of ideas we are able to help each other discover how to visualize and see our future selves.  Tracy, one of our tribe from this year, has shared some of her experience with her success of using visualization.  Things are really  starting to manifest for her.  Hopefully you will find some hope, strength , and encouragement by reading her post as well.  Please go to her post and like, comment , and share.


Love and Idealization

I love the direction my life is moving. For the last ten years I have been on a self discovery process after my relationship of 27 years with my husband died. I was 13 when I met him.

At the age of 40 I realized that I had no idea of who I was, what I wanted and had no sense of self. My previous life was all about my husband, my kids and my job at the phone company. I followed the rules, did what everyone suggested that I do. I was a good girl. When everything collapsed I was left attempting to pick up the pieces on my own with two teenage boys, a job that was pushing me out the door and low self esteem. After working several jobs and getting farther behind, I stepped into the world of  Entrepreneurship. I heard that it is a self development process with high compensation attached. There was a lot of resistance from my family and friends with my choice. I had a lot of work ahead of me to transition into the woman that I wanted to be. I have also heard that you attract who you are emotionally. Since I was a woman who liked to serve, I would find guys who needed a lot of help and it helped me determine that I was on the same emotional level. I decided to step back and work on myself. I have not been in a real relationship with a man for several years. My life was better as a single woman than adding a man who would not add value to my life. Of course I thought of the type of guy that I would like to have, I even wrote it on paper. A kindred spirit, someone who loves God, who wants to serve others, who has a great sense of humor, who was in business and understood what that was like, someone who is encouraging and supportive, who loves family, is stable financially and strong emotionally. I had a very long list. I had read the list to my  mom one time years ago. She said” I know who that is” I said” What and you have not introduced me” She laughed and said ” Yes it is Jesus Christ” Again it was a very long list.

Once again this process of idealization, visualization, earnest Desire will bring about Confident Expectation, and this in turn must be reinforced by Firm Demand. I turn 50 next year. Life was not meant to be solo, even the animals in the ark came 2 by 2. One of my smart goals is to have a happy love life on or before 06/17. I received an email through an online dating sight from a man in the United States, I responded thanks for the email (always courteous) however I barely have time for a coffee with someone who is local. He responded that we was moving to Vancouver BC and that is why he is connecting with me. (Old blueprint, sure you are)  I decided to take a risk, and we have been communicating ever since. We have connected on so many levels. We talk and text  every day. He has all of the attributes that I am looking for and more. Our marriages were very similar and our life goals. He worked his business first and then had a family. I had a family and now focused on business. I have not been this excited in many years and he is flying to Vancouver this Monday. We have scheduled our first date. So grateful. Life will give you what you ask for, most of us do not ask for enough.


Sits, I Love My Sits and I am Possessive of Them-Week 5

Sits are an important exercise in the Master Key Experience.  It has been shown that all successful people take these sits daily and it is integral to their success.  Our guest blogger this week, Louise, tells us how she has come to love her sits and has become every possessive of the time.  
Please go to her blog , post comments, and share if you are moved to do so.


Week 5 – That place…of pleasant associations


I have shared about how much I love my SIT.  So much so, I have become very possessive of that time.

Here I am in Week 5 and Haanel tells me to ‘mentally select a place which has pleasant associations.’  And just like he writes, ‘ At first, you will find yourself thinking of everything under the sun, except the ideal upon which you desire to concentrate.’  True,  I did think of many places BUT they all had ideal aspects.

There weren’t really MANY places, just a couple. The first one was from my childhood.  A room in which my imagination flourished.  I felt very safe and absolutely anything was possible.  Another place is a beautiful park over looking the Hood Canal with the Olympic Mountains in the background.  The last place is very similar but not a park setting.  This one is a scene that smacks you in the face as you follow a curve in the road heading northwest.  As soon as you come out of the turn, your breath escapes your body involuntarily when your eyes focus on the magnificent sight of mountains, water, rocky beach, hundreds of eagles, all framed in majestic evergreen trees.

Exactly my question!  How do I pick one place?  So I sat peacefully, selecting the pieces I wanted in my ‘place which has pleasant associations’, and it is being built.  Wow!  What a place, too!!!  I have felt it’s wonder all day!  Tomorrow the mental picture will get more detail and with every SIT become more complete.  The prize awaits.  For ‘all life and all power is from within’.

Each new discovery is like a gift.  I love presents, who doesn’t?  Truly, every day is a celebration with GIFTS!!!!

I can be what I will to be!!!

I always keep my promises.




In the Flow of Giving and Receiving- Week 4



In the flow of giving and receiving.  What does that mean? Giving is the same as receiving. For us as Master Guides for the Master Key experience, one of the aspects of being in the flow of giving and receiving is sharing our members blogs.

When we see a message we resonate with or that we feel other members would enjoy reading, we get the pleasure of sharing it.  We love giving them the spotlight for a week.

This week we are sharing Joanna McCallister Schutte's  week 4 blog post.  Give her some love and head on over there and like, share and comment on her post.


Week 4: may need new highlighter

Once again, this week I am blown away by all that I am reading & learning.  It is difficult for me to stop myself from highlighting almost every sentence when reading the “Master Keys.” I honestly will need a new highlighter before long!

How is it that I have never heard of this book before?! I can see how some of the ideas do skew to the “woo-woo” side, but based on scientific facts and research, he leads to very logical conclusions.  Ideas that make me think about things I never really have thought about before- such as what is “I.” It is not just my brain, but more spiritual, or as he says, the “world within.”

I am excited for the time when I “do not wear (themselves) out.” The concepts of having energy, good health, continuous positivity  and NOT wearing out has been beyond my reach until this class started. I frequently run in cycles of high energy, getting things done, then do the self-sabotage thing. I have not felt that I could maintain high levels of achievement.  I felt it required too much energy that I did not have.

Making a goals list hurt because I always failed before, so I got to the point where I did not make goals lists. What was the point when I was just going to fail?  “Modern psychology tells us that when we start something and do not complete it…we are forming the habit of failure.” (Hannel 4.12) Ouch- This was me.  I never made lists, I was very reluctant to start something new because I am a “perfectionist” and I don’t like failure, I hated having a goals list because I never accomplished it anyway.

Now, shew-wee, now things are different. I have hope. I am already seeing some small changes. The “Do it now” has probably helped the most with my procrastination problem. I am doing my best to remind myself that I am achieving my small service tasks, but I am still scared. The “big ones” scare me, I have failed so many times before, I hate failure. It sometimes hurts for me to read these new services this week, I get a pit in my “gut” and it is hard for me to imagine my success when I am remembering past failures.

Speaking out loud helps so much! My voice is louder than the whispers of doubts in my mind. I want to do my best because when else will this be easier? When else will I have the chance to have a new start?

I have to remember that every day can be my new start, built upon a foundation of the achievements of the day before. I am slowly building the foundation of success, and I can only go upwards from here.
