Welcome to Week 13 of my MKMMA journey! We are at the half way point and every week I learn new tools to crush the cement in my life and plant my DMP deeper into my subconscious.
When writing out three daily gratitude’s on index cards was introduced in MKMMA, I was so happy because expressing gratitude has been a part of my daily life for some time. When I received Christ into my heart at nine years old, I can’t say that I understood how having a heart of gratitude would play out in my life, but over the years this power has revealed itself.
When I joined my network marketing company in 2011, one of my millionaire mentors suggested making a daily gratitude list by writing out ten things I was grateful for every day with twenty on Sunday. It was recommended that we form an alliance by getting a partner and email your list to your partner each day. Over the years, I have had different partners and we always made it a habit to gift one another our year of gratitude at the end of each year.
In addition to daily gratitude, it was highly recommended to write an annual gratitude letter dated December 31 for the following year. I always have made it a habit to write this letter on December 31 of the current year for the following year. This has been my habit for five years. My letter often will include key areas I wish to write about like: Health, Businesses, Finances, Faith Walk, My Husband, Serving, Personal Development, Recreation, Family. The point is whatever is important to you. I would read it aloud, share it with others, and read periodically throughout that year.
Just like our MKMMA recipe for success by reading our DMP, having a Positive Mental Attitude, a Plan of Action and our Mastermind Alliance, so it is also true of expressing gratitude for that which has not yet happened in the physical world as a tool to bring it forth.
We know then that Master Key 13:12 comes as no surprise to us who are already leveraging the power of the mind. “12. If then, we find that certain persons seem to possess unusual power, what are we to conclude? First, we may say, it is not so, which is simply an acknowledgment of our lack of information because every honest investigator admits that there are many strange and previously unaccountable phenomena constantly take place. Those, however, who become acquainted with the creative power of thought, will no longer consider them unaccountable.
Furthermore in 13:15 It will be found that the creative power of thought will explain every possible condition or experience, whether physical , mental or spiritual. 13:17 goes on to say, If we think of some form of material wealth we may secure it. By concentrated thought the required conditions will be brought about, and the proper effort put forth, which will result in bringing about the circumstances necessary to realize our desires.
Gratitude opens many doors that could never be opened otherwise.
