Eleven weeks have past by and I am still in the scholarship program for Mark J’s, otherwise known as the WORLD’S LAZIEST NET WORKER, Master Key System! Eleven weeks of thinking and articulating multiple times daily the purpose for my life. Let me ask this, when is the last time YOU thought about what you want out of life for eleven straight weeks?
The topic of this blog post is more about looking back in order to see what it is I have achieved, thus far.
First and foremost, after participating in the Go90Grow program with Mark J in 2012, I thought I had conquered doubt, negative self talk and lack of confidence. Participating in the Master Key course, has demonstrated that I needed even more improvement in this area. I have persisted and done the exercises and have observed a marked change in self reliance and confidence. I have found the affirmation, “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy,” to be an incredibly powerful boost to my self confidence. This affirmation has done amazing things to build belief in myself. I am now certain and uphold within myself the unbridled belief and unwavering faith that I will, in fact, accomplish my goals as set forth in my definite main purpose statement. Each time negative self talk, a judgement of someone or myself pops into my head, I repeat the affirmation. I am pleased to report that the law of substitution is working brilliantly!
Sometime early in September I eliminated television in the evening hours. I later went on a diet of absolutely no media for one week. Interesting experiment! Every once in awhile now I watch a little television with my family and have come to observe after this long period of no media, that media really does play a large part in shaping your mental outlook on life; in fact, it’s all negative! Just confirms that LESS IS BEST!
I have noticed that my husband joins me from time to time during the evening hours, as I do my evening reading of the Og Mandino’s, THE GREATEST SALESMAN IN THE WORLD. He has told me that finds comfort and serenity in the readings. This is great progress! I enjoy these moments we have together.
It always helps to have objective data on hand in addition to subjective, right?! My score has dropped six points from the previous test. My score on the onset was 28, now it’s 22.
Have I achieved the monetary gain necessary to accomplish my goals? I must be brutally honest and say no, not yet. But, I am making progress. ” I will never consider defeat….. I will persist until I succeed.”
To quote Og Mandino, “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. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road…. So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win.”
