Week 12 MKMMA – Moving Forward

The deeper I get into the MKMMA course, reading Og’s The Greatest Salesman in the World, and Haanel’s Master Key the more I find out about myself. One of the ways I find out more about myself is when I ask questions, something I never considered important before starting this journey.

Now when I ask myself questions I look for the cause that has given me the effect, especially when it is an undesirable effect. When I do this I start to discover why things have unfolded the way that they have, almost with pinpoint accuracy.

I change the cause to get a different effect, a different result. There is some work involved though, and a willingness to let go is important too.

So Og mentions that if I persist I will succeed, and according to Haanel there are three steps to keep me moving forward and my success is determined by my eternal vigilance. The first one is I must have knowledge of my power, got that; second, the courage to dare, working on it; third, the faith to do, working on it. Haanel also states that each step is absolutely essential. So as I write this out I can see why I am making progress, but not the progress I’d like to see. Am I upset with myself, a little. Will I get over it? Already done. Do I know what to do to keep moving forward? Absolutely. I have the knowledge, and I know it doesen’t apply itself, I have to make the application and the application consists in “fertilizing the thought with a living purpose” …”and it must be sharp, clear-cut, definite. Charging my thoughts with feelings creates the belief necessary to take action to get the results I desire, I must focus. I know what I need to do,I’ve fallen behind with what’s needed to keep me in forward motion, so what did I do? Made a promise to myself. What do I know about promises? 

Haanel 4-12:

“Unless you do this, you had better not start at all, because modern pychology tells us that when we start something and do not complete it, or make a resolution and do not keep it, we are forming the habit of failure; absolute, ignominious failure. If you do not intend to do a thing, do not start; if you do start, see it through even if the heavens fall; if you make up your mind to do something, do it; let nothing, no one, interfere; the ‘I’ in you has determined, the thing is settled; the die is cast, there is no longer any arguement.”

Time to get it done.

Your post was an excellent read; to know I am not alone in this and to gain some insight on how to clarify my thinking (Sits) on where I want to focus. Thanks again.

    Great insights! I have always sought to be somewhat stoic, so charging intent with emotional energy can sometimes be a challenge. This needs to be something I commit to to help me with the rest of the goals!
