MKMMA Week 12 – A positive mind alters my life

                                              Today I am grateful for 

                                             1: I am healthy, I am able to take care of my family and chase my bliss.
30285-What-Are-You-Grateful-For-Today-
 2: I have the capacity to love myself and others.

3: I am liked by the people who I care. 

Above is my daily routine –writing down three things that I am grateful for before go to bed. With this attitude and gratitude, I start my day with vitality and a mind filled with happiness! 

Mostly every morning, I wake up with vitality. The first phrase that I say to my son in the morning is ‘it is a beautiful day, isn’t it’ no matter it is sunny, rainy, windy or snowy…I can perceive as what Og mentioned ‘I love the sun for it warms my bones; I love the rain for it cleanses my spirit’ I love the wind for it blows away my negativities, I love the snow for it purifies my soul…I realize that the world within has massively influenced my world without. When I saw the leaves fall, I feel no more sentimental instead I think of the harvest food that I could benefit for my family’s healthy diet.

Moreover, I have heard before that the positive thoughts boost immunity. I think it’s true because I feel I am no more be weak, no more be contagious. The power of positive thoughts triggers emotions, which activate organs, in turn affect our health. I love the world that I have created. I know this reality brings me closer to the place where I want to go, to become the person I aspire to be !!! maxresdefault

I have successful done my first 7 day diet. I found that I was more capable than I thought to deflect and substitute a negative thought to a positive one. I feel so proud!!! I find that the law of relaxation is the foundation for building my mental home, without a relaxed mind, I wasn’t able to observe objectively, to think all the skills that I have learnt. I will go for the next 7 day diet, but I will try to confronting people who are likely to arouse my inner evil.

The power of a positive mind alters my life. The positive thoughts increase my vigor and my enthusiasm; positive thoughts strengthen my immune system so that I am happier and healthier day by day. Every day I start a new life, and I greet this day with love in my heart.

MKMMA Week 11- Practicing gratitude when unwell

 

Gratitude-400x300-e1342375406101

This week has been a bit exceptional due to I have been unwell. I have decided to practice gratitude in order to keep up my positivity… So this post is going to be a more lighthearted and positive post, is one of those posts where practicing gratitude feels like I’m pulling teeth:-)  If I had positive life quotes on my wall, I would be tearing them all down right now, because right now I feel like hell. And for the past few nights while I’ve had a fit of caughing, combining with a fever. I have thought to myself many times that I would rather die than feel like I’m surfering. I will take sharp pain over a dull and constant one anytime. In spite of this, I know that I am committed to doing my gratitude practice for at least 7 full days, and this is when I probably need it the most.

Health is something that I primely take for granted. Being sick for the past week made me realize how fortunate I am to be a healthy, functioning human being most of the year. Granted there are the few times that some form of cold or flu makes me feel useless for a couple months every year, but I know many people have far worse conditions. The fact that I can wake up every morning and breath, walk , do most things without inhibition is a priceless blessing.

When reflecting on gratitude, I am always reminded of the people I see everyday. 1. my son’s preschool teacher. I don’t know how she puts up with all the life challenges and still manages to have a smile on her face all the time. 2. My mom who has been sick with an arthritis still goes to work everyday without a single complaint. 3. a mom from school, she has a very positive energy and always thinking to help others, she says thats why she is alive everyday… 4, my master key partner Chiara, she is like a sun ray to me, maybe its a bias of where she comes from – Italy, anyway she had a surgery this week as well, but she inspires me of how she effectively use the law of substitution to keep up her positive energy up…

I am often inspired by all these women and the manner in which they live their lives. Meanwhile, I hope these weekly gratitude practices will teach me how to appreciate what I have now and live life to the fullest.

I am grateful for while I have been sickSick-Leave-Law-in-NYC

1 My husband cooks for me, I can have a good rest

2 A hot shower clear out my airways

3 I still have appetite no matter how sick I am

4 I still can read Og’s book, my cards and check MKMMA

Hope you all had a wonderful past week !!! I am on the way to the good health again… keep you posted till next week 🙂

MKMMA Week 10 – I am a MKMMA sincere believer

 

 

I sincerely believe in master key master mind alliance coursetumblr_nr8k3cezIs1s8ji6co1_1280. In past 10 weeks study, I have gained much more than I have paid for. From the first week, I didn’t know whether I could have the expected benefits, but I see the changes around me and within me week after week… I have had struggles to adjust the new blueprint but its soooo worthy!!! My faith with the course becomes stronger and stronger. Every morning my day starts with a ‘thank you’ and vitality, my physical reality emerges from the positive thoughts, the vibration goes on and on. I love what I am doing, and I am in love with MKMMA… ‘I am dancing in the rain…’

The most significant thing is that the master key master mind helped me connecting to the spirituality. That’s really huge to me. I was lack of knowledge of cause and effect, was governed by the feelings and emotions. I learnt how to create the perfect ideal. Hannal mentioned ‘all nature testifies to the operation of the law by silently, constantly expressing itself in the law of growth. Where there is growth, there must be life; where there is life there must be harmony… if your thought is in harmony with the creative Principle of Nature, it is in tune with the Infinite mind, and it will form the circuit, it will not return to you void…’ I have been creating wisdom, strength, courage and all harmonious conditions are the result of power and we have seen that all power is from within. I am growing, I don’t give a shit to the atrophies; I love who I have become and will become; I feel calmer and more peaceful; I am capabThe-Laws-of-Attraction-is-this-You-dont-attract-what-you-want-You-attarct-what-YOU-AREle to control attention and focus, this is critical, YES!!! I apply the knowledge to my daily life, repeating the practice … ‘I love your energy’ ‘where do you get that energy every day?’ ‘Would you like to share a bit with me?’  I just love the new reality, I feel so thrilled of the reality that I have created. I feel the law of attraction becomes more operative, I find that the things I seek are seeking me.

Now I have an unquestionable faith with this course, I just enjoy every day I do, surround by the colored shaped goals, affirmations and the readings… be in the environment where I want to be, where can help me to grow. However, there are still so many unanswered things I need to discover. I know where I should reach out for help, where I should be grateful for, that’s MKMMA, Davene, Trish & Mark and all gangs, you guys ROCK!!! I believe in you …

MKMMA Week 9 – Celebrate every tiny victory

Do you celebrate the tiny victories? Start by viewing the video here to enjoy what I am going to share with you this week 🙂 

I love this video because it reminds me of a very important truth.  

“If we don’t celebrate the tiny victories, how do we keep ourselves inspired to keep moving forward towards the big ones?”

Since when I was a uni student, I worked so hard and was so focued to get a desired grade, and then I just directly moved to the next challenge. Same as we are growing a business there are bound to be setbacks, challenges and obstacles. Sometimes being so focused on what needs to be done or what’s not going well can blind us to the many opportunities there are to celebrate the tiny victories. When we got something done is like a step forward. A step is a step, a tiny clueless victory. i-may-not-be-where-i-want-to-be-but-thank-god-i-am-not-where-i-used-to-be-403x403-nk7sgsthe small step itself is what keeps us hopeful. It’s some direction, although you don’t know if it’s the right direction. It’s a movement, moving forward.    

Mark mentioned that we have been doing the 4 habits in the past weeks without knowing, yeah… thats true!!! we really need to learn to celebrate when we are ‘winning’ instead of waiting until we have ‘won’. Celebration creates a positive energy, new peptides and momentum that can keep us energized and enthusiastic about doing what it takes to grow what ever we are undertaking. 

To get started…

1.  Celebrate the tiny victories with the people who you trust12109320_1002855679766038_6188347320832682521_n

Having people in your life that you can talk to about even the more private details of your personal and professional life helps make celebrating accomplishments that much more significant and satisfying. 
Share your successes with someone you trust.  No matter how small the accomplishment…even if it is about money.

2. Sincerely Celebrate with Others.  

How do you feel when you see someone achieving something that you want for your life?  

This is a tough one.  It is so easy to either slip into feeling jealous,  or some other negative emotion.  Although it is hard to do, I have learned that one way to ensure you are on the path to accomplishing what you want in your life is to celebrate it when you see it in the lives of others. 

It seems counterintuitive, but what you resent you repel. Really work through any feelings of jealousy or inadequacy that come up for you when you observe the success of others. Doing so will put you more in touch with your own journey. Learn to admire what you want out of life, no matter where you see it. 
 
3. Small Sized Goals

 Every big goal is accomplished in stages. If you want to succeed and enjoy the process you have to take that big goal and break it into smaller measurable steps. Create incremental goals to serve as checkpoints along the way.  

This will ensure that you are moving in the right direction and help you to pace your progress accordingly. Learn to acknowledge yourself for work you are putting    towards your goal and celebrate along the way. We all need encouragement…use celebrating small goals as a way to give  yourself something to look forward to!!
Small victories add up. It’s almost like a completing a puzzle. You celebrate one thing (that fit together), you step forward. You keep going and going and going until you look back and see how far you’ve come. —> That is a BIG victory, hooray! So, do you have any small victories you would like to celebrate?  Feel free to connect with me on Facebook or Twitter I would love to celebrate with you.

MKMMA Week 8- The Power of Space & Choice

“Between stimulus and response there is a space.  In that space is our power to choose our response.  In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”   -Victor Frankl

 I have great respect for Victor Frankl, his quotes inspire me to no end. I admire his words that have been such contagious to light up people’s lives. However to apply to my own life, although I have a psychology academic background,  I wonder if its been a challenge I have to accept.

The webinar of week 8 was another insightful lesson. The critical point that I learnt was we have power to control our response. In another words, we can learn to recognize, empower, and make use of this ‘space’, with such awareness, we can find our growth and freedom. Within that space, no matter how small and minute it is, there is still a moment in which we can make a choice. Within that moment of making a choice we can observe and without judgment, we can radically accept that we are triggered, and thenmindful_youth_stimulus_response_frankl, we can ultimately choose how to respond to the trigger using The Law of Substitution, the scroll 2, the colors and the shapes, BPB, the index cards, DMP and the movie trailer that we have read out loud 3 times /day from the past 8 weeks…

It reminds me of few weeks ago, I had an emotional battle with some of my family memebers. When I was in the throes of an emotion (stimulus) and on a verge of an urge (response), the waves engulfed me and I couldn’t think about anything but the constant push and pull of the waves bringing me down and the desperate attempt to gasp for air. In that moment, I wasn’t able to make a choice, I simply reacted emotionally, reflexively and habitually.

Frankl found his ‘space’ through finding meaning. Others find it through prayer, meditation, breathing and so on. Personally, I have found some tactics which work for me. when I face a tough and emotional situation, I think about the meaning of my reaction, for example, I realize that my parents tended to be critical, that makes me always fall short. I intentionally leave small itty-bitty space where I can think about skills I’ll want to use so I won’t give in to the urge. Secondly, I see what behind the situation, such as when a person seems antagonized me; Third, think about the person I want to be, for instance, I dont like that I have the tendency to become quickly frustrated in difficult situations, wanting instead to be a patient person with a intellectual choice…

Today is my first day of the mental diet, I find that I am more able to focus on the blue rectangles and the red circles which linked to my PPNs. Since my intention shifts on the things that are more important than hatred, envy, complaining and so on, I feel I have the power to make a choice of what goes in mthe-law-of-substitution-iiy mind. I got a phone call from a relative who complained about the service of my company that I work with this morning. The phone call came in just right after my reading of scroll 2, best timing 🙂 I reacted with love. I listened to all the story he talked about, and realized that he was under financial difficulty. I calmed him down and directed him to a new perspective with a silent ‘I love you’ from my heart. The problem was solved peacefully. I wasnt defensive or angry instead giving out love. ‘ For just as love is my weapon to open the hearts of men, love is also my shield to repulse the arrows of hate and the spears of anger’. I continue to enlarge the space, fill in all the knowledge to every single second out of 86,400 sec per day, I want to enjoy the moment in the space between me and the urge, so called FREEDOM.

Whatever your situation calls for, you will find creating ‘space’ is incredibly powerful parts of becoming the person you aspire to be.

MKMMA Week 7 – Seven Day Mental Diet

If there is a diet related to eating, there is a diet related to thinking. Emmet Fox calls the thinking diet as THE MENTAL DIET… ‘‘physically our whole body is composed of the food that we have eaten in the past, mentally our mind is composed of the thoughts that have dwelled upon past experience’ ‘the most important of all factors in our lives is the mental diet on which we live. It is the thoughts we allow ourselves to think, the subjects that we allow ourselves to dwell upon, which make us and our surroundings what they are. The point is if we want to make our lives happy and worthwhile, which is what God wishes us to make it; we must begin immediately to train ourselves in the HABIT of thought selection and though control.

logo-trans

Some people eat junk food, and the others eat healthy food. In the same way, people think negative thoughts, others think positive thoughts.

You can reduce the amount of food you eat, lose weight and shape your body, and you can also reject certain thoughts and substitude some more motivating and positive thoughts.

You can follow a certain diet, and eat certain food in certain quantities at certain times. Similarly, you can follow a mental diet, rejecting negative thoughts and overthinkings, calming your mind, and strengthening it.

You can take care to intake healthy foods, and you can also take care of what you think, what you put into your mind.

You may fill your mind with thoughts from morning till night, as most people do, or you can choose to give your mind some rest. You can choose to follow a “Mental Diet” and reduce your overthinking and mental uneasiness.10-day-mental-diet-challenge

I realize that I have not been able to effectively control my thoughts, the negative thoughts. I learnt some great deals from Emmet Fox on how to control the negative thoughts in seven days. Before starting the 7 day diet, I need to allow this diet stirring up all my challenges, it means things are moving. For the moment, I feel that all the exercises have awaken all of my buried negative thoughts that have been repressed for a very long time. THAT IS A GOOD SIGN:-) … if my world rocking on its foundations, I dare greatly, I let it rock and when the rocking is over, and the picture will have reassembled itself into something much nearer to my heart’s desire, my DMP… Then during the 7 day diet, I need to take a step to avoid having a contact with people who are highly likely to arouse the devil in me. Next, don’t classify the positive and negative thoughts; if your brain tries to deceive you, your heart whispers the truth. Also I made a how to list of implementing the mental diet.

  1. Concentration. I gain the inner power to observe my mind on the thoughts of my choice by improving my concentration. 
  2. Observing the thoughts I am thinking are useful and can help me in anything good.
  3. Acknowledge the fact that I can choose my thoughts. Thinking is usually an automatic process, but with more awareness of what is going in my mind, and with some self-discipline, I  will be able to reduce the time spent on unnecessary thoughts.
  4. Try to choose my thoughts, and reject thoughts that cause strain, stress and unhappiness. This might not be simple and easy, therefore, don’t be frustrated if I fail over. Keep trying, and till I gradually develop this skill.
  5. Always remain the power of being present. No thoughts about the past and the fears about the future. My mental diet should not include thoughts of anger, resentment and envy.

My biggest challenge is to forgive. As the law of forgiveness mentions that to access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentmentharness-the-power-of-your-thoughts-and-live-by-the-universal-laws-19-638 against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists… I have learnt that forgive someone let go without accept what they have done to you, don’t let the feeling of indignation and resentment entertain my thought. 

I would say that daily Mental diet can lead to reducing the mental noise, and gaining inner peace, mental focus, and mental mastery.

I promise to go on the 7 day mental diet by 14 November, 2017

                                                 I always keep my promises

MKMMA Week 6 – Out grind the old blue print !!!

Aloha, we are on the week 6 already. This month we are directed to the Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the world scroll 2. Oh I just love it, begins with ‘I will greet this day with love in my heart’… I read read read with emotions and feel feel feel the love !!! Also I do enjoy putting the colored shapes around my house, and putting the ‘gal in the glass’ on the side of the mirror. I am making my movie poster with my son, thats a lot of fun !!! thats the committment I made for the course, because I cant wait to see the compound effect. aaeaaqaaaaaaaad3aaaajda2otzhnmm5lwvjywqtngy1mc1hyjzjltjjzgm0odg0ngzmzg

However, the old blue print always gets in my way, tries overtaking my new one. Most time I do the daily works written on the index cards, readings outloud. Sometimes I skipped to read GS 3 times because I feel it sounds a bit boring. And then, the next day I read 1 time and then some days no reading… Also Emerson’s essay is quite challenge, it takes me near 2 hours to read with a dictionary. I know that those exercises help me to build new habits, with those new habits I can be what I will to be and I can go where I want to go. The picture I visualize everyday about the future me is clear, is so great, and I love the future selfie. All the exercises we do helps me to become the person I want to become. Like the iceberg, under a manifestation of a new reality is a lot of the hard work. Those hard works are fantastically dull, every day, day in the day out Grind. I have learnt that some successful people that I look up to, they just grind it out during the dull, aduous, boring, monotonous and mundane times more than I do. when I dont feel do the work, they are grinding ; when I find the excuses and call it a day, they are grinding further; when I promise to talk to 2 people per day, they keep grinding 5, 6 or beyond. It is the thousands of balls hit on the practice green that is not filmed; it is the thousands of calls that they make that dont result a sale; It is all these moments depite the boredom and mundaneness that they kept grinding.

I want to be on the top of the success, so I’ve got to learn to master the mundane. Because it is in the mundane where drift happens where excuses are easy to  come by. no one is watching at all, those are honored request; the weather is bad; its the weekend, its late or whatever thought satiates the psycholgical desire to remove the nose from the grindstone. Skipping doing the exercises is building the habits for failure. I will out grind the thoughts that the old blueprint have made. And I keep grinding to establish the stronger new habits.
