Week 4 – I Can Be What I WILL to Be!

Right now – as I’m writing this – I’m just going off the top with sharing my Week 4 experience with you. Previously, I’ve talked about linking certain colors I see to my personal pivotal needs: autonomy and liberty. I’ve been focusing on blue rectangles and red circles. It’s been a struggle, but I’ve managed to link only when consciously focusing. And I mean being alert. It’s all a new experience for me, so even if it doesn’t seem to make sense at first, I wholeheartedly trust that it’s going to manifest my PPNs!

Here’s something awesome I want to share. For the first time EVER in my life, I purposely ate grapes WITH their seeds, and loved it! Sounds crazy, but here’s why. In Scroll 1 of The Greatest Salesman, Og Mandino has me calling my birthplace a “vineyard” where there is “fruit” for all. This vineyard contains age-old “grapes of wisdom” and within these grapes are the “seeds of success”. Once swallowed, new life “sprouts” within me. I’ve been reading Og’s material conditioning my mind for the past 26 days now, so it isn’t hard to link this grape to success in all areas of my life.

As promised, here are photos of the “chore”, now called service, I did last week: removing the crooked basketball hoop from the wall in my back yard.

This week’s service will be revealed in Week 5.

The following is pretty funny. During one of the daily 15-20 minute “sits” I’ve been doing, where I sit still on the same chair in the same room, in complete silence, relaxing my body and mind, this past Wednesday, half way through the sit, my sister walks into the room and throws me completely out of my zone, not knowing what I was doing. I told her that this is part of my daily routine, explained the whole thing, and I’m surprised that she didn’t burst out in laughter. She took it as something normal, some kind of meditation. And I thought that was the coolest thing of her to say that.

Today I’ll be signing up with Go90Grow, where I’ll be learning some of the very best network marketing skills on the planet, to take my business to a different direction – walking the trail of success!

This week I’ve learned that I must be in service to other people. So, I’ll be making a conscious effort to make people’s days without compensation. I’ll be helping out the organization pictured below. It’s called ‘t Vinkhuys (Note: link redirects to Dutch website).

Basically, it’s a place where tons of activities are held by various organizations, clubs and societies. In favor of the local community in my neighborhood Vinkhuizen (just outside downtown Groningen), the activities range from children’s programs to sports events to language courses to creative workshops. All kinds of fun stuff to do that I can be contributor to.

Along with the “Service” card and the “DMP – Movie Trailer” card, this week I’ve added a “Giving” card. In this card, I promise to give a small gift to everyone I encounter, whether it’s a compliment, prayer or a flower. I promise to be a grateful receiver of kindnesses, smiles and compliments given to me. I promise to give hope for life’s virtues with every encounter and I promise to give without expectation of equal return.

Part 4 of The Master Key System taught me that I can be what I WILL to be! My will is to be the greatest network marketer I can be, helping other people succeeding in this beautiful industry, so in return I can provide for myself and my family and be set for life!

Very eventful this week was, I’m looking forward to the next one as I’m finishing this one strong.

Until then, take care!

Week 3 – I Always Keep My Promises!

Last week I made a promise to achieve autonomy and liberty in my life. This week I will demonstrate that I always keep my promises. I got the chore done. What was my chore? To vacuum under my bed. Yes. A monumental achievement in my journey.

In all seriousness, that was chore one in a progressive list of future chores. I got something done and my subconscious mind picks this up as an achievement. This week I have a different chore I need to complete before October 20th. It’s a little tougher, but I’ll get it done. Next week I’ll reveal what it is. “Subby” doesn’t know we up the ante every week. That’s why this is so EXCITING! We get something done weekly and we link that to our purpose in life. So this week’s chore is not a blue rectangle, but a red circle. I’ll be focusing on red colors and link these to autonomy and liberty.

In the previous week I talked about fear. In Part Three of Charles F. Haanel’s Master Key System I’ve learned that “the arch enemy of the Solar Plexus [the organ of the subconscious mind] which must be destroyed before there is any possibility of letting any light shine is fear. This enemy must be completely destroyed; he must be eliminated; he must be expelled forever; he is the cloud which hides the sun; which causes a perpetual gloom.” 

I remember Michael Jordan saying: “Work ethic eliminates fear.” This week I found out that long before that legendary NCAA basketball coach John R. Wooden said that it all starts with industriousness (nothing substitutes hard work) and enthusiasm (meaning God or spirit in you). These are my two favorite words right now, probably for a long time.

John R. Wooden's Pyramid of Success

Haanel’s take? “When you find out that you are one with the Infinite power and you consciously realize this power by a practical demonstration of your ability to overcome any adverse condition by the power of your thought, you will have nothing to fear.”
In other words: you have endless potential. You’re just not conscious of it. When you overcome a tough obstacle in your life just by thinking the right thoughts – and you realize that – you’ll KNOW that you can overcome anything and fear won’t bother you ever again.

See, I’m an introvert by nature. Throughout my adolescence I was more of a socially awkward loner than that guy everybody wants to be around. This changed in my adulthood, because I overcame my fear of not being liked. Now I’m just being me instead of trying to be that guy. People notice that and they love me for it.

It’s even deeper than being yourself. You have to understand that your “self” is actually an extremely powerful, yet dormant entity within you waiting to “awake” and reveal itself. The more in-tune you are with that “Super-You”, the more “Super” you become. Realizing that you CAN become a successful writer, you CAN become a successful dancer, you ARE able to lose weight, you HAVE enough awesomeness in you to make lots of great friends, you ARE capable of running a profitable business; takes time to realize. Time and consistency.

I believe that I CAN succeed in the home based business industry. I put in the time (26 weeks) to discover my best self. Along the way I will be wildly successful in all areas of my life.

Stay tuned for week 4!

Week 2 – Jumping Into The Pool

Good morning from beautiful Groningen, Netherlands!

Here we are at the second week of my voyage; the unfoldment of my life’s greatest discoveries. Last week I got my feet wet. The pool is nice and warm. Now let’s jump in.

I’ve decided to think about my future as if it’s a movie. So, I hope you’ve got your popcorn and beverage as we get to watch it scene by scene.

In week 1, I developed the understanding of the teachings mentioned in that week’s post. Many of our lives can be considered motion pictures. We are the protagonists of that beautiful, dynamic, thrilling, dramatic, hair-raising, eye-popping, heart-racing, fast-moving film called life. As the hero’s, we embark on an adventure, go through trials and tribulations, encounter a major crisis, only to emerge victorious while ending up as human beings totally transformed.

Okay, so why do we come out on top?

Well, many people have their own ideas about failure and success. According to Og Mandino, failure is “man’s inability to reach his goals in life, whatever they may be”. This is most profound knowledge. Many of us have dreams, desires and goals. As long as we’re still alive, we haven’t failed, because our life isn’t over. We still have ample time to succeed in whatever endeavor we wish to thrive in!

As little children, we learned how to stand up straight, then as we fall flat on our faces we learned how to walk. An important factor in our fast learning was our absence of fear. Kids do not fear ANYTHING. They don’t have to worry about money, they have BIG TIME dreams about fancy racing cars and 10,000 square ft. princess castles. Around the age of 5, that fearlessness gradually gets beaten out of us. We’re being told what to do and what not to do. We had to “act normal” and “behave” or else we’d “get it”… Schools, governments and mainstream media condition us to limited belief. We feel as though we’re not good or smart enough to have, be and do anything we set our minds to and unfortunately we get paralyzed by fear.

In this week, next to all the readings and practices, I’ve been asked to state clearly what my two Personal Pivotal Needs (PPN’s; immaterial needs I MUST achieve in my lifetime) are and write them on an index card. My PPN’s are:
– autonomy (only having to answer to myself)
– and liberty (being completely free; financially and spiritually).

Also, I had to write down on another index card a self-chosen chore that I need to complete before October 13th. On that same index card, I would draw a blue colored rectangle next to the chore I’ve written down. What does this symbolize?
Once I do the chore, I will be drawn closer to my PPN’s and every time I see the color blue, I will get reminded of the chore.

Lastly, I would write on both index cards:
– “I promise to…” on the top
– “manifest autonomy and liberty”
– “repeat “Do it now” 25 times twice a day out loud”
– and “I always keep my promises” at the bottom and sign my name.

This is all a process of injecting excitement and enthusiasm into my subconscious mind, so that it can cooperate with me in harmony, instead of working against me, sabotaging my beliefs and actions.

As far as the 15 minute sits; I’ve successfully managed to control my body. This week I’ll do the same exercise every day to control my thoughts.

I’ll be sharing my progress in week 3.

Cheers!

Week 1 – Getting My Feet Wet

Hiya folks!

So this is my first week of the 26-week Master Key Mastermind Alliance course and boy what an experience! I’ve never had so much detailed information and clarity at the same time.

In this post I’ll be sharing with you what I’ve experienced. I’ve learned new things, but just as importantly I’ve been able to grasp the things I was still in the process of understanding.

After a weekend of preparation, my daily routines officially started off on Monday the 30th of September 2013.

Since then I’ve been getting into the habit of reading. As we all know, we have a conscious mind and a subconscious mind. Because the subconscious mind makes all the decisions, we have to feed it the right thoughts and feelings so we can make the decisions in life that best serve us.

A crucial part of feeding my mind with positive messages is daily reading. The material that I’m reading every day is:
– Scroll 1 of Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World (three times a day);
– Week 1 of Charles F. Haanel’s The Master Key System (once a day);
– The chapter “Desire: The Starting Point of All Achievement” from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich (once a day);
– The “Self-Confidence Formula” (a.k.a. “The Blueprint Builder” in the course) from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich (once a day); and
– my very own “DMP” (Definite Major Purpose), where I describe my life’s greatest wants and desires in full detail (three times a day).

Besides reading, there’s a daily exercise and weekly assignments.

One of these assignments is the blog post you’re reading right now. I’ve learned about blogging at the course earlier this week.

The daily exercise I apply is: sitting completely still in a room, alone and undisturbed, for anywhere between 15-30 minutes. As I’m doing this exercise I’m getting control of my body and letting my thoughts roam.

Already I can feel the results of these daily routines. Every day I wake up with a purpose, ready to face any challenge that stands in the way and conquer it! I’m getting my bad habits replaced with good habits. Also, I’ve learned that regardless of what my background is, I was made first class by first class and I’m entitled to a life of abundance.

Greatness is inside us. As soon as we realize that all power comes from within, nothing will stand in our way of obtaining the object of our lives’ greatest desires, because anything less won’t satisfy us.

Soon I’ll be sharing more about the journey. Stay tuned!

Have faith,

Mohammed Al Rubaiy

PS: Today is also my mother’s birthday! That makes the day even more special than it already is!
