Well… the course officially finished two weeks ago and of course I’m late in writing my final blog post…. oh well… nothing unusual there… but I won’t beat myself up rather “I will laugh at myself for man is most comical when he takes himself too seriously” 😉
It’s been an incredible 6 months, hard to believe it really. I’ve decided to enrol in the continuation program because honestly, this isn’t the end at all, it’s just the Commencement…. Once you’ve had a taste of the teachings and wonderful things happening inside the MKMMA, you realise that personal development is a lifelong pursuit and I wanna be a part of the MKMMMA for good. The ideas, theories, lessons discussed and digested truly are food for the soul. I’m so grateful to have been introduced to some of these great though leaders….
- Emerson (even if I do struggle with some of his material)
- John Wooden
- W.Clement Stone
- Earl Nightingale
- OG Mandino (my man!)
- Joseph Campbell
- Napoleon Hill
- Emmet Fox
- Mark and Davene Januszewski
To name just a few.
I’m going to try and write a quick summary of some of the things I’ve learned over the last 6 months….in no particular order.
New habits take an average of 6 weeks to embed. With the MK tips (cards and shapes) they take less time… an average of 3 weeks.
The subby doesn’t know sh*t, but it controls everything…you gotta feed it good stuff.
Thoughts + feelings = actions = results. It starts with thoughts.
Persistence is something you can develop. We developed persistence by creating new habits and then executing services and tasks.
I carefully sculpted sentences to create a DMP. Words are the highest form of architecture and the pathway to success…know thyself. We all have a purpose. You gotta write it down so you know exactly what you want. It has to be crystal clear.
I learned how to be kinder, more grateful and live in the present appreciating the gifts and miracles that surround me everyday. The happiness formula. I see great virtues in everyone and everything around me.
I developed my visualisation and imagination skills… I learned to listen to my soul. To sit in silence, to be connected with a power far greater than myself… the universal mind. This is a powerful exercise and something I will continue to do. It’s amazing to disconnect sometimes and just enjoy the silence.
Everything is in a constant state of movement. The answers are everywhere. Nature is perfect in every way.
The 7 laws of the mind… I love those guys. I completed the 7 day mental diet. WOW that was a breakthrough.
Met some amazing people throughout the journey, like-minded, beauties. Masterminds can be very powerful. God knows, I wanted to quiet many times, but some kind words/gestures from the other course members kept me going to the end, and I’m proud for finishing… even though the journey ain’t over.
KINDNESS! I’m kinder (I think, I hope). It’s all about GIVING. Give more get more. This mantra I will live by.
I’m sure I’ve forgotten some things, it’s impossible to sum up everything we’ve learned but I just wanted to name some of things that really stuck with me and will continue to do so.
I know I’ve still got so much to learn and I was far from the best student. I’ve realised a lot of things about myself that I still need to change. For example, I don’t always get things finished, I procrastinate so much to the point where I can’t even get going sometimes, I am bad at managing my time, truly awful and I try to do too much sometimes. Also, I don’t always do the homework, sits, reads, etc… and I find excuses for not doing them. But I’m glad I’ve had these realisations, it’s useful to know thyself, to be the non-judgemental observer. I will continue to develop and correct my bad habits.
All in all, I would recommend the MKMMA to anyone and everyone. I feel empowered, happy and purposeful. For the moment, I feel like I’m heading in the right direction, that I’ve found my purpose… but I’m also listening, knowing that at any moment that could change.
When your heart speaks, take good notes.
