One of the things I learned early in the Master Key Master Mind course is that thoughts are causes and results are effects. When we control our thoughts we control the results. This may sound simple but I have found that implementing this concept is not easy. An understanding of the Seven Laws of the Mind helps in this process. Mark J and his MKMMA team have been like builders constructing a home. First they laid the foundation and then continued to build on it. It has also been that way in teaching us to understand the power of thought.
They have incorporated the power of practice. We have continually and consistently engaged in activities requiring we actively control our thoughts. This practice of course improves our skill and we gain more control of our thoughts. Lesson 21 of Haanel states that the secret of success is to think Big Thoughts. Prior to this course I would not have fully grasped the power of that statement. I would not have realized that thinking does indeed make it so. I can now utilize the Law of Attraction and think of those things I want more of, such as peace, harmony, good health and adequate finances. The untutored might say this is being a ‘Pollyanna’ and that one doesn’t get finances just by thinking. I would differ, because I spontaneously and out of the blue received an offer to refinance my home. The refinance was completed in two weeks from the call to offer the new mortgage to the closing. This refinance paid off my credit cards and provided the funds to purchase a new vehicle. I needed the new vehicle with automatic transmission very much as due to arthritis of the left hip, I found it painful to drive my standard shift vehicle. You have guessed right this was included in my DMP (definite major purpose). I did not include the refinance, in fact that had not occurred to me. My focus was just on a different car. Subby [my sub-conscious] provided the means.
Lesson 21 also includes comments on prayer. I pray frequently and have had most of my prayers answered. But, there are times when I pray and feel I am not getting the answer that I want. Prayer for me is holding a conversation with God. Therefore I often remind myself that prayer is not a monologue with me just asking. I must also listen to what God is saying to me. I have found our sits seem to facilitate this process for me. There is a designated time each day when I am ‘still’ and seem to hear His voice. I have found that when I listen to this voice things go well for me. I have also learned that God doesn’t always give me everything I ask for and some times He gives me my request and I wish I had not asked for that.
This course, though not at all spiritual, has drawn me closer to my Maker. It has caused me to engage in more in depth thought and take control of my thoughts. I am now aware of my ability and power to control my thoughts. When they are not positive I can quickly utilize the Law of Dual Thought to replace the negative with a positive or different thought. Since I am in control I can focus on thoughts that will aid me in achieving my major purpose which is good health, harmony, peace and adequate financial resources.
Thought is indeed powerful. If I think little—achievements, finances, etc.– these things will be drawn to me in small amounts. However if I think big—large rewards, large accomplishments, six figure incomes, etc.—these things will be drawn to me, for like attracts like. My charge is to practice thinking only thoughts that are helpful and beneficial. Thought is indeed power and Lesson 21 teaches that the secret of power is the consciousness of power.
You may be thinking what does all of this have to do with improving my business or increasing my income. It is everything. Our thoughts are the causes and the results/effects evolve from those thoughts. I utilize the Law of Attraction to capitalize on this concept. Check out the video below.
