This has been a very DEEP thinking week for me.
It has been profoundly impressed upon me a couple of things.
1. OMGosh, the shear number of THOUGHTS that bombard me on a given day, hour, minute is almost insane as I am becomming the observer in so many areas of my life.
It would be awesome if EVERY THOUGHT was positive and I am learning how to be the effective "Watchman at the Gate" as these thoughts pour in. The Master Key Experience has given me amazing tools to master my mind.
Ok, lets move on to another thought process that came to me yesterday morning as I was sitting there concentrating and focusing. Each morning I spend at least 15 minutes in a SIT. Completely still, with a relaxed state of mind and a relaxed body. I focus on my life and concentrate on all of the amazing habits that I am learning in the Master Key Experience. This is the time when I connect myself with God and his amazing blessings and abundance for my life. This is the time when I come into harmony with the God of all creation and I LISTEN, VISUALIZE and LEARN.
This is what came to me yesterday.
I am NOT responsible for changing the world. (This realization takes a lot of pressure off and allows me to breathe) BUT, I am responsible for changing the world God places in front of me each day. That starts by changing ME so I can be open and alert to what God puts in front of me each day. NOW, how beautiful is this? The Master Key Experience is precipitating that change in ME. Imagine for just a moment the vision of 300,000 self directed thinkers ALL changing the world God places in front of them each day. The END RESULT: The world is changed. I am but (1) person but MY CONTRIBUTION can and does changes the entire world. It starts with ME.
I think it is so cool that the very thing that allowed me to breathe ABOVE ends up manifesting because I decided to change ME and the ripple effect is unstoppable. That is what you call FULL CIRCLE!!!!!!
This week has been absolutely CRAZY....
FACT 1: My Definite Major Purpose is SOLID
FACT 2: My Personal Pivital Needs (PPN) are ON TARGET
FACT 3: The Law of Attraction works 100% of the Time....PERIOD
FACT 4: My daily and weekly circumstances are irrelevant to FACT 1,2 and 3
What does this mean?
The challenges of my daily experience are designed to help me GROW. If life was easy and there are NO challenges, there is NO GROWTH.
The Master Key Experience Master Mind Alliance (MKEMMA) is the greatest FOUNDATION for developing a Definite Major Purpose and our Personal Pivital Needs. Until we build the correct foundation, our current foundation (Subconscience Blueprint) is the only reality we know. Once you have a Definite Major Purpose and Personal Pivital Needs that are REAL and SOLID, the old Subconscience Blueprint is FALSE and INEFFECTIVE.
This week has really crystallized for me how easy it is to fall back into the "Comfortable" reality of my OLD SUBCONSCIENCE BLUEPRINT. I did not like the events of my week but I have 48 years of responding in a certain way. Just because I have 17 weeks of Buiding a NEW SUBCONSCIENCE BLUEPRINT, that does NOT mean that my old blueprint is gone.
As a matter of fact, I am reminded of a move from 2001 called "A Beautiful Mind" with Russel Crowe. In a nutshell, his character was delusional and everthing that he believed in life was false. As this came about in his life, he was taken thru the mental health process of shock theapy, mental drugs, etc. At one point through this process, he was spending time with his college roommate and the roommates daughter. (By the way, this was a complete delusion) However, once he realized that the little girl was a delusion, he made the decision to ignore her forever even though she loved him very much in the delusion. In the end, he came through the delusions and at the end of his life, he received a Nobel Prize. Here is the point that I am trying to make here:
After he received the Nobel Prize, he came into the hallway to meet his wife and as he hugged her, he saw the college roommate and girl crouching in the corner. His wife said, "What is it honey". He just smiled and simply said, "Oh, it is nothing"
How does this relate to my OLD Blueprint?
The OLD Blueprint NEVER fully goes away. The question is: Are you feeding it? If you feed the OLD Blueprint, I give it vitality, and the Law of Attraction will work completely to make sure this reality continues to rear it's ugly head. If I feed my NEW correct Blueprint, I give it vitality and the Law of Attraction works on my behalf to bring that reality into manifestestation. The choice is mine. Will I accept the call of the Hero's Journey and walk into the unknown or will I refuse the call and fall back into the comfortableness of my previous miserable existance where the false delusions determine my lack.
I CHOOSE LIFE. I CHOOSE the Heros Journey. I CHOOSE to embrase the unknown and uncomfortable so that I can become ALL that God has called me to be. AMEN.
The Dictonary defines "OPINION" as:
A View or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.
We have been practicing "NO OPINIONS or NEGATIVE" for several weeks now in the Master Key Experience Master Mind Alliance (MKEMMA). It has not been until Week 16 that I have seen so many examples of the unbelievable damage that "Having an opinion" can create.
I am determined to be SWITZERLAND!!!! I am going to be neutral from this point forward. Instead of giving an opinion, I choose to be an example.
In #5 of the Blue Print Builder (an excerpt from Think and Grow Rich, by Napolean Hill), it says this:
"I will engage in NO TRANSACTION WHICH DOES NOT BENEFIT ALL WHOM IT AFFECTS"
This one statement alone is what I am going to focus on each and everytime I have a decision to make or a comment to make. This is the ammunition I need to keep my opinions to myself. I choose to make this world a better place by taking my opinions out of the mix.
Welcome to the Master Key Experience 13 week makeover.
READY, SET, GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
January 1, 2018
I am so fired up as the Master Key Experience has shifted and I cannot wait to take the FOUNDATION that I have built over the last 14 weeks and begin the application phase. For the next 13 weeks I am going to dig in even deeper. I am even more committed and I am taking it to the next level.
13 Virtues with a weekly focus on 1 at at time.
Self-Control (Moderation), Kindness, Discipline, Persistence, Specialized Knowledge, Decisiveness, Courage, Imagination, Taking Initiative, Pleasing Personality, Well Organized, Enthusiasm and See God in Others.
I am becomming a MASTER OBSERVER from what I am learning in the Master Key Experience. This world is about to NOT recognize me (Og-Scroll 1).
I have always heard that ANY dead fish can swim with the current. It takes a LIVE FISH to go against the current. Well, I am ALIVE and nothing is going to stop me.
2018 is the best year of my life. My business grows 10x and my Definite Major Purpose is being realized.
Peace and Blessings to everyone.
What a great movie. I watched it so many years ago and yet, it takes on such a different meaning today. Yes, it has the 4 tiny habits of persistence.
DMP: Definite Major Purpose... They had a vision and nothing was going to take them out.
PMA: Oh yes, A positive Mental Attitude all the way down to the end as they carried the bobsled across the finish after crashing
POA: Plan of action....They were from Jamaica....Seriously, NO SNOW, NO Bobsled, NO support. They had everything going against them and yet they TOOK ACTION and executed.
MMA: Master Mind Alliance....They supported each other and became a force for working with and thru each other.
Here is something that I was NOT expecting from the movie and it is a realization that is coming true in my life moving out of 2017 and into 2018. LIFE IS MESSY!!!! You can have all (4) of the habits of persistence and YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE but that NEVER guarantees that it will be a smooth ride.
In the movie, there were so many UPS and DOWNS. Even with persistence, it is going to get CRAZY and MESSY. That is OK. It is called LIFE. Take a deep breath and know that you are endowed with EVERYTHING you need by your creator to persist and succeed. DON'T QUIT, adapt, adjust, change, grow and WIN!!!!!
Last night I had an awesome experience that I would like to share.
I came to a realization about my business that threw me into a bit of a tailspin. I found myself in a contemplative FUNK. For about an hour and a half, i just did not know where to go with it. I called on a mentor and asked if she had some time to mastermind with Pam and I. We picked a time for 9 pm. At about 8:30 pm, as I was digging deeper into the rabbits hole and starting the conversation coming at 9 pm in my head, it hit me that my OLD BLUE PRINT was up to tricks again. Needless to say, I have had some contemplative FUNKS in the past. Just then, upon this realization, my NEW BLUE PRINT came to rescue and I realized is that my upcoming mastermind needed to start with the amazing gratitude for all of my successes in my business in 2017. There have been so many successes and our growth has been amazing.
Everything changed. My contemplative FUNK disappeared and I was present in the moment smiling and thinking about solutions instead of well, you know!!!!! Our mastermind went great and I have ideas on how to take things to the next level. I am so thankful for great mentors and the Master Key Experience. I am learning how to stay in harmony with the God of all creation and learning how to direct my thoughts in a way that manifests my definite major purpose in life.
From the first time I read Chapter 12, I was blown away. So many things have come together this week.
"The Only real power which you can have is the power to adjust yourself to Divine and unchangeable prinicples. You cannot change the Infinite, but you can come into an understanding of Natural Laws.
Other phrases used in #9 are:
1. The reward is...
2. your ability to adjust your thoughts...
3. Your ability to cooperate with....
4. will indicate the degree of success with which you meet.
WOW!!!! Our complete success hinges on our ability to be the "Watchman at the Gate" and "Come along side" and adjust to the natural laws of the infinite.
SHORT, SWEET and to the point this week but to add anymore to this post would dilute the power from above. What an amazing revelation.
Hello everyone. This week has been a very interesting week for me. I have a story to share with you.
I have served on the Alzheimer's Association as a local board member for 3 years now. I had made the decision to take a break at the end of this last year as I am in the process of learning the process of saying NO on occasion. Four years ago, I moved to Lake Charles, La and I knew noboby. Today, I have a vast network and I find myself everywhere and involved with so many worthy causes. This is great and I have been extremely blessed to be accepted into this community as my wife, Pam and I have. However, Pam and I have a dream of building a Log home overlooking the Cumberland Mountains on Norris Lake in Tennessee.
With this being said, we have a 2-3 year plan to transition out of Lake Charles, La and move to Tennessee to accomplish this dream. This is what shaped my decision to let go of the Alzheimer's Association board seat. It is time to wind down on many of my commitments by learining how to gracefully say NO to those endeavours, although worthy, will tie me to Lake Charles and could in the long run hinder the focus on my thriving business so that our dreams stay underfunded and just outside of reach.
Then, 12 weeks ago, the MKMMA is delivered into my life and the Definite Major Purpose takes shape. Yes, the log home is a part of that DMP.
Here is where it gets really interesting though. So is GIVING massive amounts of money to the Alzheimer's Association and 4 other charities. Hmmm. The new blue print and the subby begin to work the magic.
I resigned my seat at the Alzheimer's Association a couple of days ago and when I did, something just did NOT feel right. I was not sure just what it was so I tried to ignore it (old blueprint rearing it's head). I slept on it and the next morning, on the way to work, my wife called me and said that she just did not think that the decision was justified and asked me to reconsider. It hit me like a ton of bricks right then. I immediately called the Director and asked her to rip up my resignation. Further more, I told her that I needed to be MORE involved not LESS involved.
Overnight, my entire countinence and reason for resigning became invalid. As we have learned in the MKEMMA, GIVING is so important. I am so excited to GIVE even more this next year and to let go of something else that does NOT reflect my Definite Major Purpose and can be released.
One of my Tribe members, when I was sharing some of this on Marco Polo, responded with an amazing thought process.
Deborah made the point that my NEW blue print allowed me to sleep on it for a night with an uneasy understanding only to help me see that it was not about releasing but GIVING MORE.
I love this process and I love the future Troy Van Dyke
Last week my post discussed progress NOT perfection. In the last 7 days, I have come to a revelation that although, a bit negative, allows me to progress forward. My family and I went on a cruise this week. We had an amazing time. It is been a struggle to follow thru on all the Master Key habits that I have been forming over the last 10 weeks and I realized that although the old blueprint is on its way out, a lifetime of the old does NOT leave willingly because of 10 weeks of focus and concentration. I am so thankful for all the recordings that I have done up to this point. They are the saving grace this week as I was still able to progress (although slow going) even when the days events kept me from my newly forming habits. The recordings were simple and non-invasive to the days events. They kept me thinking and moving forward.
This last week has reminded me that "INTENTIONAL" action and "FOCUSED" concentration on these new habits will forever be a must. Yes, it will get easier along the way but life does NOT stop because we are creating a new blueprint. Instead, life continues and our new blueprint will help us to live life with more passion, love, persistence and bliss.
This week has been very interesting. This was the first week that I have been out of town during the Master Key Experience. I found myself challenged with getting everything done and the beautiful thing is that I really MISSED it. I was prepared to succeed and had all the tools ...ie...og/cards/MK, ect.
I totally missed my connection with my Marco Polo tribe and I had to miss the webinar for the first time. Totally NOT cool. I felt like i was left out of a part of my life.
Here is the thing. The Master Key Experience has truly become a part of my life and I cannot imagine NOT practicing these principles everyday. That is a good thing for sure.
Here is what my conclusion is: Perfection is NOT the goal. Progression IS the goal. There may be times in my life when there are unforseen obstacles to me performing these services. However, I am rapidly developing the habits that will last a lifetime and during those times where Perfection is NOT possible, Progression is. I will smile, laugh, do my very best and move to the next day without getting down and frustrated because I understand where I am going and I will get there. I am very happy with my progress even though it is NOT perfect at times.
