When I read the assignment for Master Key 11, I get fired up like a Pentecostal preacher. Can I get an Amen!
11:22 – The fruit of this thought is, as it were, a gift of the gods, but a gift which few as yet realize, appreciate, or understand. The recognition of the marvelous power which is possessed by the mind under proper conditions and the fact that this power can be utilized, directed, and made available for the solution of every human problem is of transcendental importance.
Every human problem…wow!
An excerpt from 11:34 reads,
“Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them,”
Notice that there is no limitation, “Whatsoever things” is very definite and implies that the only limitation which is placed upon us is in our ability to think, to be equal to the occasion, to rise to the emergency, to remember that Faith is not a shadow, but a substance, “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
This deserves hashtags of: #desirepraybelieveachieve and #Mark11:24.
Peace, Love and Harmony to all.
Now about my guest blogger, Bill Kiefer, Bill has previously taken the Go90Grow course so he is no stranger to these principles when he received his scholarship to MKMMA. Enjoy his Week #11 Blog post!
This weeks lesson has been an eye opener! We discussed the concept of persistence and how it really applies to everyone, everyday. OF course, my pre-conceived idea of what persistence really is was completely shattered This is becoming an ongoing theme in this course!
One thing that Mark J keeps harping on is that most people look for guidance in slogans, books and seminars. The problem is that we all look for the quantum leap, seeing massive gains in all aspects in a few short days or weeks all because we read a book or attended a seminar. This idea of having quantum leaps applies to the “idea” of what words really mean. What I am trying to say is that we all have an idea as to what a word means and how we can apply that in our life, but through this course I am realizing this is the furthest thing from the truth.
This concept really applies to the word “persistence”. The biggest thing I have learned this week is that persistence means nothing if there is no ACTION attached to it! Most seem to think that persistence is the act of showing up, not quitting and staying the course. While that is partly true, not taking action is a passive activity. Being persistent is an active concept. Just showing up and not quitting does absolutley nothing to get anyone closer to their goal. If we do not actively do the things needed to further our lives, we are just going through the motions and we might as well quit. The results will be the same.
Now I know that being persistent means showing up every day AND doing the activities that need to be done to grow. The activity is the most important part! Continuing to work hard and “mastering the mundane” leads to growth, there is no other way. Now, when I say I am being persistent, I can look at my activity and know that I am doing what I need to do to succeed.
