MKMMA WEEK #20 – Cooperation and Service

handshake

This month I noticed several people come to my aid.  It’s not like people haven’t helped me before.  I am grateful  I have had a lifetime of people assisting me to get to where I am. However, right now in my life without the cooperation and service of others I know I may not have been as fortunate as I am.  For some reason I am noticing it more often and can see that when you have the right people in your corner everything happens with ease.

I work in the sales industry and assist people to make a regular income on their money. I guess I have done a good job because the referrals this month were outstanding.  All I did was let my clients and friends know that I was putting on two informations sessions per month and magically new clients appeared.  It is true.  When you help enough people get what they want you will get what you want.

For the last 20 weeks every day we have been reading the “self-confidence” formula from the book Think and Grow Rich… “I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others…”

I know that I am of service because I believe in what I do. It’s working for me and I know it can work for others.  When that happens being of service comes easily and others will  give their cooperation to make your plan happen.

At my last meeting I  smiled to my newest client who came by way of referral and said, “I am so glad I helped you find a way.”

In health,

Brooke

MKMMA WEEK #19 Easy To Do, Easy Not To Do

toothbrush

It’s amazing how things work out.

Whenever we start something new it always seems hard.  For example, when we start working out for the first time we first must make the decision to do so.  Then figuring out when, where and how we are going to workout can seem overwhelming.  But if we don’t have a plan and commit to the decision it’s never going to happen. The things we say to ourselves can be incredibly negative like I can’t do this, it’s going to hurt, I don’t want people looking at me, I don’t have enough time, I don’t have enough money or I need the right clothes.  I know you have had these thoughts.  How do I know this… because I have had the same thoughts at times.

Once you get going and have had some success in showing up and doing the work.  It feels really good despite the fact that you may feel overly tired or sore since your body isn’t use to your new lifestyle.  You may want to skip a workout from time to time or not finish because your negative thoughts are still lingering in your head.  It really does take time to build up a positive mental attitude on a consistent basis. Week 19 Section 17 of the Master Key says, “…the fact remains that if your thought is powerful, constructive and positive, this will be plainly evident in the state of your health, your business and your environment; it your thought is weak, critical, destructive and negative generally, it will manifest in your body as fear, worry and nervousness, in your finances  lack and limitation, and in discordant conditions in your environment.”  The worse thing you can do once you get going is slip up and revert back to your old ways.  It’s so easy to do and sometimes we pretend not to know we are going backwards.  What are you pretending not to know?

Here’s what I have noticed after 19 weeks of the Master Key.  I came home last night from dinner and watching a live band around 1 am.  It’s not unusual for me to be out with friends socializing  and having a good time.  That’s what I like to do and I do it with ease.  Since I tend to come in late 2 to 3 times a week doing the reading and gratitudes had been the thing that I would complain about.  But something happened!  I noticed last night that I came home got cleaned up for bed and recited the “Gal in the Mirror” after I brushed my teeth.  Got into bed and read, “The Greatest Salesman in the World” along with my personal goal and I wrote out 3 gratitudes with no thought.  It was as easy as brushing my teeth.  No big deal… it’s just what I do.

If you do anything long enough that is good for you it will become easy.  It’s easy to do and it’s easy not to do.  So whatever you are fighting not to do even though you know it’s good for you.  Stop it!  It will get better.  You will become better and it will happen when you least expect it.  Keep going and watch your life flourish.

In health,

Brooke

MKMMA WEEK #18 -Take 100% Responsibility

 

it's your faultI have always been the person that others come to for support, understanding and advice. This week more than ever I noticed how troubled and unhappy other people are.  Here I am walking around with a smile on my face noticing all the beauty that surrounds me.  I am grateful for everything that is happening and the things that I know will happen.  I am walking with a bounce in my step and really taking the time to listen to others.  I feel I understand what is really going on.  Have I become that person that instinctively knows exactly what to say and can feel the energy of others. I am going through the basics of my life with ease.  While the people around me are struggling to pay their bills, they are unsure of how to make their life better.

I can say without a doubt that the Master Key is the only course that has helped me think in this manner.  I have goals written down but they have nothing to do what anyone else. I have noticed that so many people blame others for situations that they are not happy about.  If only they could understand that they are 100% responsible for their life.  When I listen, I hear their desperation and honestly I would love to say something. But… I quietly listen and support and offer no opinion unless asked.  I remember the question that many people ask when they are looking for advice.

“What would you do if you were me?”

The truth is no one could ever answer that question.  I am not you and I wouldn’t likely do what you have or would do.  People have to come to their own decisions and live with the consequences of those decisions.  At this moment I feel as if I am the sane one in a crazy world.  It feels pretty good to be me.  So for now I’m going to keep going in the direction that I am headed.

I take 100% responsibility for me and my happiness.

In health,

Brooke

MKMMA WEEK 18 – Don’t Wait Urgent!

urgent

By now I have said “DO IT NOW” out loud a minimum of 6000 times over the course of the Master Key Experience. We are in week 18 and we are to say, “do it now” 25 times twice a day.  For me these three words have changed my life.  Years ago I was a get it done right away person with a lack of patience and somewhere along the way I had let some things slip.  I had always made a point to do the things I didn’t like to do first thing in the morning when I woke up so I could spend time doing the things I like. However, I had not been consistent in doing that over the last few years.  Procrastination happened.

I thought I could get away with the do it later attitude.  This lackadaisical way of being wasn’t serving me and once I started saying, “do it now” daily, my habits have changed immensely.  Not only, is this get it done, don’t wait attitude allowing me to be more aware of how I spend my time, it has also added to my happiness factor.  I am happy 95% of the time and maybe 5% of the time I have disappointments from the things you just can’t control… life happens.  I can change my thoughts quickly and not dwell on the negative.  I am mastering the 7 Laws of the Mind and today I taught them to my mother.  During my conversation with my mom she informed me her sister, my aunt was admitted to the hospital to be having triple bypass surgery next week.  A disappointment I can not control but also not a surprise, as my aunt has chosen a life which did not involve “TRUE HEALTH.”

The timing of this news is ironic seeing we were asked to read the obituaries everyday this week.  Something I have never done.  In fact, I had stopped reading the paper as I really don’t like knowing bad news.  I am pretending not to know that a whole lotta bad stuff is going on all around me.  I have been in my own little bubble.  Reading the death notices was interesting there were a variety of people who have left us.  It really didn’t matter how old they were although there were typically more elderly written about.  Most were survived by a list of people and the obvious choice of words were passed away peacefully.  I am wondering what that really means?  It rarely would say what they did for a living as that does not really matter in the end.  It was all about how they made others feel if at all. It made me think there is a reason we should not wait to get things done so we can do the the things that really matter.  That, true health, which is one of my pivotal needs is the most important thing.  Without your health what can you really do and it may end your life prematurely.

I know I’m going to die which is why I have paid for my funeral and arrangement a couple of years ago.  I don’t want to leave it to my only daughter who is only nineteen.  When you get your head out of the clouds and stop pretending not to know we all have limited time to do whatever it is we are going to do on this earth.  We better get cracking because we may never wake up tomorrow.  Healthy or not.

Don’t wait to tell someone you love them.

Don’t wait to take your child on a trip.

Don’t wait to start working out.

Don’t wait to have a baby.

Don’t wait to start your business.

Don’t wait until you are not scared anymore because you will always be scared.

Don’t wait Urgent!

In health,

Brooke

MkMMA WEEK 17 -Just Imagine…

prosecco

Just imagine if you could:

  • Be anything you wanted
  • Do anything you wanted
  • Have anything you wanted and
  • Had enough money and amazing health

To live the life you imagined.

But wait… oops you don’t have much of an imagination.

That’s me. My imagination is lacking that’s why this week’s Franklin Makeover is all about imagination for me.  Observing others imagining and getting myself to imagine my perfect life is a work in progress.   The one thing I have been good at, is imagining my perfect relationship.  It’s easy to get lost in my dreams of the perfect man for me.  He’s in my life right now and we started seeing each other just after the Master Key started.  I imagined the perfect date with a man I have been seeing for a few months now.  Instead of waiting for him to plan the perfect date, I went ahead and made the arrangements myself.  I thought… what if I treated him the way I wanted to be treated.  So… I made reservations at an exclusive restaurant in my area that you cannot just walk into.  I have eaten there before, the food is amazing the atmosphere is very romantic.  It had been his birthday a couple weeks prior and I had been unable to spend that day with him.  This was kind of a  belated birthday celebration.

The man of my dreams met me there, it was the middle of the week and he was coming from work.  He had walked in and since I could see him I greeted him at the door with a big hug and kiss.  We walked to the table together and the first thing he says is, “you look amazing… I mean you always look good but you are glowing. And wow this place is beautiful I can smell the food from here. Thank you so much for taking me here I have tried to get in several times and was turned away at the door, it’s always packed.”  Wow… I thought I had know idea he had wanted to come to this restaurant and a beautiful compliment like that, the date was off to an amazing start!

We talked, laughed and ate over a bottle of sparkling wine and before I knew it three hours had flown by.  For me there is nothing better than being with someone you adore.  He said, “honestly Brooke I don’t know what to say this was fabulous, thank you!”

Just imagine… that you could create your perfect day, week, year and for me it was the perfect date.  Being treated special, is something everyone wants in there life and I know I felt even better than he did.

Give more get more.

In health,

Brooke

MKMMA WEEK 16 – Kindness Goes A Long Way

winter2016

When Mark J asked our group to do random acts of kindness for others as an assignment this week I was excited.  I had consciously started my random acts of kindness journey a few years ago.  For me it was about giving compliments on facebook and in person.  Giving a hug as much as possible instead of a handshake, sending an email or making a phone call out of the blue to say hello I’ve been thinking about you.  I will also mail a card from time to time just to say how much I appreciate your friendship.  The one thing I know for sure is it  feels good to make others feel good.

Although, doing something nice for others is a part of my life… for some reason when asked to focus on this I found it challenging. Doing random acts of kindness so that people would not know it was me leaving the kind gesture.  However, more interesting was how much I noticed all the random acts of kindness people would do for me.  My gratitude factor was super high this weeK!  I have been writing out 10 gratitudes every night for the last four years.

On Monday we had our first real snow day in the town that I live in.  I am Canadian living an hour east of Toronto, Ontario so snow is part of our culture however, this year the weather has been unusually warm for this time of year.  When it snowed on Monday I was disappointed as I knew I would have to go out to shovel the snow before I could get out of my driveway to go yoga.  It was the heavy wet snow that weighs fifteen pounds every time you had to lift.  A very good workout but very time consuming.  I was all ready and dressed to go… hat, scarf, mitts, boots and extra long winter coats.  I open the front door and I see that my driveway was already shovelled.  Holy Cow! Amazing!  What a way to start the day. What a way to start the week.  The first act of kindness was for me.  I love my neighbors.

Since I had time I went outside anyway and shoveled the other neighbors sidewalk and walkway.  One act of kindness leads to another act of kindness just because it feels so good.  Once that was done I had an amazing Bikram Hot Yoga Class the heat felt amazing.

This week has been great I am at an all time high of happiness.  Kindness goes a long way!

In health,

Brooke

MKMMA Week 15 – Out With The Old in With The New

durhamoppmeetingjan2016

This past week I was asked to speak to a group of people  living in my town about my journey in using a particular line of products that have assisted me in living a healthier lifestyle.  I was not surprised by this offer nor did I hesitate in saying, “YES.”  I have been wanting this to happen for over 4 years.

I noticed after agreeing to speak to these people who are on the same path as me, wanting to achieve true health.  That my mind started to tell me I was not good enough to speak to these people.  That if they knew the truth about me and my journey to a healthier lifestyle I would be known as a fraud.  I am the person who has never been consistent in my use of the products. That I am up and down in my mind and in my weight.  I train then I get injured then I stop and then I start again.

I am consistently inconsistent.

As the time got closer to the day I was to speak, I got sick.  Yes… a severe cold/flu happened to me this week.  The aches and pain, the runny nose, the cough and of course the wicked headache that wouldn’t go away.  Wonderful, I thought to myself, this is my reason for not showing up to this event.  I won’t have to tell them about myself… I am sick and it’s not a lie.  Just as quick as I thought of calling the whole thing off… it was time for me to read.  The habit that we Master Key people have developed, that won’t let us go.  And there is was people… “Difficulties, inharmonies and obstacles indicate that we are either refusing to give out what we no longer need, or refusing to accept what we require.” 15-3 MK

I was inharmonious with what I wanted and what I was willing to do to get what I wanted.

Why couldn’t I just tell the audience my truth?  I am unique!

“I am rare, and there is value in all rarity; therefore, I am valuable.” Og page 69 of the Greatest Salesman in the World.

And so feeling sick I popped a Tylenol Cold and Flu the evening I was to speak to 50 plus people that included doctors, health care professionals, fitness professionals and people doing their best to be their best.  I stood at the front of the room and spoke my truth, from my heart.  It wasn’t that hard and it felt really good.  Before I knew it, it was over and I knew that I made a difference for the people listening to me.  I made an even bigger difference in myself.  Growth!

“Growth is attained through an exchange of the old for the new, of the good for the better; it is a conditional or reciprocal action, for each of us is a complete thought entity and this completeness makes it possible for us to receive only as we give.” 15-4 MK

I was able to throw away my old ideas of who I thought I should be for who I really am.  To show my unique self with all of my faults; that I am consistently inconsistent and I have still progressed and made a difference in my life and the life of others.  I didn’t give up and my health has improved 100%.  That I am  proud of myself!  I gave more and I got more!

Harmony.

Out with the old in with the new.

In health,

Brooke
