Hello again, I’m back. We’ve been reading “The Greatest Salesman in the World” by Og Mandino. This month we have been on Chapter 11. This book you don’t read all at once. It takes months or just short of a year if you follow the instructions correctly. Wow, how it helps and sinks in. The teachings you really get and is easy to apply in your life. Right now we are learning about Natures greatest miracle. You really realize the gifts you have and how you can apply them in your life. How you can make a big difference in the world and apply in your life.
Sorry about no posts over the holidays. I actually posted 12 and 13 together, but have realized that for some reason I did it wrong and they did not end up live. Anyway, back to the blog. I’ve learned a lot over the weeks from the Master Keys Master Mind Course. I think I notice more things in life and take charge or control of things when in the past I lied idol or didn’t even notice the opportunity. This weekend I was at The Badgers National Wrestling Tournament with 2 of my boys. Wow, talking about top competition in the country. Unbelievable. Anyway, I noticed perseverance and unbelievable will in these young boys. I saw wrestlers pushing themselves even farther than they thought they could push for a goal. All I can say is wow. Something a lot more of us can do in real life. I learned from these boys, if you want it bad enough and plan for it, anything is possible. My son Colton had a tough weekend. But he went to practice tonight. He had told my wife that he was going to practice tonight because practice was cancelled Monday night (do to -14 below for a High), and he needed to train and get better. You have to realize this is a 3rd grader who is very competitive. But still, what if we all had that determination in our real lives, not just sports.
That is why I did not make a New Years Resolution this year. That normally means something that last 1 to 3 weeks and then it is forgot about. But life resolutions, now that’s worth living for. So I have committed to several life resolutions that I’ve put into action in my life and put a game plan together to follow it. I recommend you all try this. For example, don’t just say “I’m going to lose xxx amount of weight this year. Put a game plan together with meals, workout plans, and fun things to do in your life that might change your regular “BluePrint” or schedule that you are used to and do more active things regularly. Hopefully I’m getting the point across.
Bye for Now,
Here we are again. Life keeps happening and we move forward.
“It is well, however, to remember that while every effect is the result of a cause, the effect in turn becomes a cause, which creates other effects, which in turn create still other causes; so that when you put the law of attraction into operation you must remember that you are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise which may have endless possibilities.”
This is so true. I’ve been doing things to expand my business, and automatically things that I did not expect or anticipate are happening. What you think about happens in ways you may not of thought of.
The old blueprint keeps creeping in. I think it may always. But we are a third of the way through the class and I see some of my old habits are gone and new ones that were hard at the beginning of the class, I don’t even think about, they just happen. Life is a journey, and you can choose to win most of the time and grow and move forward. Or you can stay the same or move backward. It is your choice. Ive chosen to move forward.
Well, a lot of changes are happening. Our Family life has gotten busier, 5 boys are on 3 different wrestling teams. Been very busy, but the new blueprint has been starting to overpower the old blueprint, without me even trying to change it. I know this doesn’t make sense if your not in the class, but breakthrough’s are happening. Mark says to trust the path he is taking us on, and I’m starting to see the benefits. Forgiveness. I found I’ve had a lot of anger at a couple of old friends that had done some bad things. I found myself thinking about it a lot and last week I found myself forgiving them in my mind and what a relief. I’ve found myself now thinking about the positive things we used to do and all the good things I’ve learned from them. What a change in thinking.
Im back. This week in class I had a lot of ah ha’s. I finished my recordings and wow, how that has been helping me focus and keep my stinkin thinkin out of my mind. No TV this week. Didn’t realize how much I watched it. Have found that I’m getting a lot more done. Action in my business has naturally been happening. Things that I normally have to work at or work my way up to doing, I have been just doing, subconsciously. Wow another breakthrough. As far as loving everyone and forgiving everyone. It didn’t really sink in right away. But the last 2 days it really has, and it is like a big weight was lifted off my chest. In fact, it has made me think of some of the good things about a person. So I guess I’m proof that anyone can change and in a big way. I’m seeing clearer every day of where my business is going and my press release is coming to life. Sorry I’m all over the board on this blog.
I always keep my promises,
If you noticed week 7 missing, somehow it is up above. Still learning and growing with the blogging. In week seven we are going 7 days without having a negative thought. I’m realizing how negative people are. It has become a norm. I’m catching myself in a negative thought and immediately thinking of something else. That happens a lot, didn’t realize how negative a person is. My thinking is becoming more clear and I’ve noticed that I’m starting to control my subconscious thinking. What an experience. This class is one of the most amazing things that I have experienced in my life.
By for now,
Another earthshattering week. My life seems to be getting busier, but yet simpler and more focused. This week we wrote a press release of what our life will be like, but write it in current time like it already happened. For me I found this very easy, yet I kept changing it, and I have been finding out how more focused my goals have become since I have started the MKMMA course. Starting scroll ll in “The Greatest Salesman in the World” by OG MANDINO was exciting, but a little different. I have gotten so used to scroll 1 that I guess it is a habit.
Here we are again. So excited in week for to be moving forward 100%. Has anyone else noticed that life still seems to get in the way. My old blueprint of what I’m used to do in certain cases still tries to pop in their. And some times he wins. But the great thing is I’m subconsciously or consciously noticing it. I guess that’s why this is a 26 week course, we have to stay the course. What I have found is whatever life throws at me, I’m 100% committed. Even as things are getting thrown at me, other things are being thrown at me, maybe I’m not making sense. For instance, I set a goal to do a few basic new things with my business, and that seems like it automatically set things in this world into action. People in my group are automatically calling me and telling me the same thing and how they wanted to move forward and asking me to help them, instead of me bugging them. Anyway, I’m looking forward to all the great things that we all have to look forward to. I can tell you one thing, I have a lot of great gifts that I’m going to be bringing to the world and it is getting crystal clear of how it is going to come together.
By for now,
I always keep my promises, Shawn
Wow, what a week so far. I have started to realize some of the skills, actions and drills we have been doing, I have been automatically implementing them in my life, or at least noticing them. For example, I was watching the Kids at wrestling practice yesterday, and a particular move we were working on, their were a couple of sloppy things or (bad habits) in the move they were doing. They were just little things, and on 90 % of the kids it wouldn’t matter. So we worked on perfecting the move with constant drills with the right (habits or techniques). What we learned with practicing the good habit, or right way to do the move, (repetition) we created a new habit in the move and the sloppy old habit slowly is disappearing. So what I’m getting at, is my subconscious mind is slowly automatically noticing and implementing some of the simple skills I’m learning. I’m noticing that these success skills can be implemented in all parts of our lives. Don’t get me wrong, I’m learning a ton, but my mind is still struggling with some of my old habits. The new ones don’t always win, but I’m conscious of what’s going on and now know over time that I will be able to change or do anything in my life. I’m finding that this class is one of the most important thing I’ll ever do in my life. Its like getting a masters degree in life.
Till next time, Shawn Bornholdt
Remember everyone, this is my 1st blog, so I might go off on tangents. Week 2 has been exciting and challenging all at the same time. I have noticed that some of my bad habits are diminishing and I’m slowly gaining new more positive habits. I catch myself on what I call “Stinking Thinking” and automatically change to I can do that. I’ve been noticing not even second guessing myself. See, we have spent most of our lives being told we cant do something, so its an easy copout. It is becoming easier to do some of my new habits and less of a chore, becoming automatic. Stay tuned as the journey continues.
