blog-you-are-powerful-beyond-beliefKnowledge does not apply itself.  It takes the development of new habits, and consistent action.   If you have studied the book Think and Grow Rich, you are familiar with the formula for success:

Success =

DMP (Definite Major Purpose) + PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) + WPOA (Written Plan of Action) + MMA (Master Mind Alliance)

I am getting so much out of my MKMMA (Master Key Master Mind Alliance) class.  I have learned that anything one focuses on becomes abundant.  When you are shopping to buy a new Honda SUV, you see Honda SUVs everywhere.  If you are a guy with a pregnant wife, you see pregnant women everywhere.

Thus it is very easy to reinvent yourself.   Last week we focused on the virtue of kindness, and kindness manifested itself all over the place.  This week I am focused on the virtue of industriousness.

Industry – Lose no time; be always employed in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.

The virtues we are looking for are everywhere.  I already know this before I see it.  This is because the world within determines the world without.

Someone once wrote, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.”  Most people see a few others with success, love and riches, but they are focused on their own lack.  The Law of Growth takes over, and they get more lack.   If you wish to eliminate lack, focus on abundance.  If you wish to eliminate fear, focus on courage.  If you wish to eliminate disease, focus only on health.

You are powerful.  Right now.  You have to give yourself permission to have access to that power.

You can’t claim your reward, if you continue to cling to what you lack.  We reap what we sow, exactly.  For example, in Network Marketing, if you think that once you start getting big checks, then you will become a great leader, you are misguided.  The people and resources that you need will show up if you now live inside the correct principles, such as The Law of Growth.  Otherwise, you will struggle.

I am not only going to identify people and actions related to the virtue I am focused on, but I am also going to give those people compliments.  This is powerful.  This means I can give a gift to everyone, anytime I want.

People are caught up in measuring up to others.  And the result is that they are stranded in a place called “never enough”.   I have my own goals, and I don’t measure myself against others.  Coach Mark J. also taught us to ask ourselves nine words to move from “comparing” to creating.  The words are:

What did I do right?

What can I improve?

I am elated to be a Servant Leader who knows, goes and shows the way, and because of this I am very wealthy for life.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
