Catch Up Time – Post 346

I can’t believe I haven’t posted a blog since April. Things have been busy but I can’t believe it has been that busy. I know that in April and May I was busy with some very intensive training programs and then in June I spent a lot of time traveling to both coasts. A combination of Business and pleasure. I’ve got so much to share with you so I will try to do much better keeping up with these blogs.

As I was driving from Monterrey California to Reno Nevada a couple weeks ago I kept thinking about the law of attraction and the role this universal law has played in my life. As I have shared with you guys before, I am a Christian so for me the law of attraction is biblically based. I believe that God is the universal force. I’m not going to get into a theological discussion here so you can put your defenses down. I just wanted to give you a brief background about my prospective.

I went to California for two reasons. I wanted to spend some time with my son who is stationed there in the Navy. We haven’t been able to see each other since he graduated boot camp last winter. I also was hoping to have a chance to spend a day or two with Cory Gold. 

 


Before I left for the trip some things happened to prevent Cory and me from getting together but, while I was disappointed, it didn’t stop me from going. I really wasn’t sure what was going to happen on the business side of the trip but I was trusting that things would work out and make that part of the trip worthwhile. I knew that the right circumstances and the right people would show up so I was excited about the trip. 


A few years ago I had been a guest on KSCO radio out of Santa Cruz. Since Santa Cruz is close to where my son is stationed I decided to stop by the station on Saturday to meet the owner in person for the first time. I ended up spending 2 hours with him talking about the radio business and talking about the home business I am in and how to take things to the next level. 

Just to show you how this law of attraction works; while I was there I met Pharmacist Ben Fuchs. He is another radio personality that has a daily show on stations all across the country. He actually lives in Colorado and was there for a seminar that he was speaking at later in the day. Well Ben invited me to come to the seminar so I did just that. 

Well while I was at the seminar I met several other folks that I had talked to on occasion but never met. I found out that they were fans of my blog and had attended many of my webinars. These folks were excited to finally get to meet me in person. It was a really humbling experience. 

I also met Phyllis and Andy Anderson at this event. Up to that point I had never heard of them but it turned out that they were multi-million dollar earners in this business and they invited me and my son out to dinner after the seminar. We ended up talking for hours about exactly what it was that they did to earn their income, giving me some incredible advice on how to take my business to that next level. A lot of information that I am implementing in my own business as we speak. 

They also really stressed the role that the law of attraction played in their lives. 

I wanted to share with you folks some of the things that I have learned from the Andersons and from other people regarding the Law of Attraction and how to put it to work for yourself.

To get a better understanding of the Law I suggest that you start out going to YouTube and searching for a video called “The Secret” be sure to look for the complete movie. Now I warn the more devout Christians among you that the video is a little, actually a lot on the new age side of things but if you really think about it you can find a lot of biblical parallels. In fact I’ve done a blog post about it in the past. Just visit AIMHighWithKeith.com and check out the archives.

Go watch that movie then stay tuned for my next post where I will talk about this and other things that I have learned in the last few months in much more detail.

As the late Jim Rohn always said, “REMEMBER THE SAME WIND BLOWS ON ALL OF US ITS THE SET OF YOUR SAIL THAT DECIDES YOUR COURSE!!” Set your sail for success today by learning the skills for success.

Week 20 – Let Go and Let God – Post 330

Let Go and Let God

I am a big proponent to the “law of attraction.” I have personallyletgo seen this universal law manifest itself in my life. Being a Christian, I believe that God is the center of the universe and everything comes from God and the Law of Attraction is God at work in our life. In my own personal life I can look back throughout the past a see just how this Law has affected my life in every way without me even being aware of it.

There have been numerous times that I have gone through some very challenging times. In each and every one of those times I gave the problem to God. I prayed, read scripture, contemplated. And in every instance the answers came to me and I followed them. This MKMMA journey has been no different. In fact this MKMMA journey has made me even more aware of the ways that God has influenced my life. Through MKMMA and a more focused awareness of the law of attraction the phrase “Let Go and Let God” has taken on a new meaning.

I’ve heard people throughout my life claim that they gave their problems to God and nothing happened. Because of this they now have doubt about the very existence of a higher power. They even ask, ‘if God really did care, then why does he answer some people’s prayers and not others? I asked and I trusted but nothing happened for me?’

I never really had an answer. Why did it seem that God answered some people’s prayers? Why didn’t He answer others? We see people like Joel Osteen; he gets up there every day and talks about God answering. He talks all the time about great things happening to people when they give it to God. I saw the same things but I could never answer the WHY?

Well my first clue as to “why” came a couple years ago when I came across a movie called, “the secret.” Now the movie tends to be a little too much on the “new age” side for my sensibilities but as a Christian I really connected to what was said in the movie on a more spiritual level.

It talked about putting out there, into the universe, what it is that you want to attract into your life. I found this concept so fascinating as it relates to prayer and asking God because as I mentioned before I could look back in my past and see instance after instance where I put forth a desire and over time, all the pieces necessary to make it a reality came into my life. I started exploring why this seemed to work for me in the past and what I discovered was there is just a little more involved in the process than just asking.

I could see many times in my past when I asked and nothing happened. I started looking at what it was exactly that I did that was different when things worked out compared to the times in my life when I did not have success.

We have all heard the scripture that says, ask and you shall receive, but have you looked a little further in the scripture. In every instance when someone asked and received there was another step involved. What was that extra step?

In every instance the person took an action. They believed enough in the fact that they would receive they took an action toward receipt of what they asked for. They Let Go and Let God then acted as if God had already answered them moving themselves toward that goal. Think about it, every time someone came to Christ and asked for a healing what was Christ’s response? He told them to go do something, take an action, take a leap of faith, show they believed by taking an action and then they were healed.

For example he told the leapers to go down to the river and wash themselves and they were healed. He could have just healed them without them taking the action. But he gave them instructions to follow and then when they took that action they received what they asked for. The same thing has happened in my life so many times I can’t even count.

When I lost my job at the end of 2011 God had already put into action the path for me to follow to replace that income. The problem was is that I was not ready to Let Go and Let God. I had forgotten what I had learned throughout my life. Yes I was praying for help but I wasn’t listening, letting go and following His lead. I was following my own lead. Doing what I thought was the right thing. I wasn’t really believing and trusting that things would turn around. I resisted the path God was laying out in front of me. In fact I couldn’t even see the path because I was stuck on the idea that I had to get another full time pharmacist job. I didn’t even see that he was giving me the tools and the opportunity to pursue a different path full time. A path that had I paid more attention I may have never had to return to pharmacy.

Looking back now I see that God had brought so many people into my life during those two years of unemployment that had I followed my life would be totally different now. Over that two year time frame God brought many of the top leaders in my network marketing company into my life. He even allowed me to have the opportunity to travel with the founder of the company not once, not twice but on five different occasions. God had in mind a new direction for me and I just couldn’t see it. It’s true in the back of my mind I wanted to move away from pharmacy. I had been praying for years for God to show me a new direction but I wasn’t willing to listen and let God.

I laid my concerns at God’s feet. I knew and expected that God would bring the right people into my life and I didn’t see it. I knew I had to be willing to be open and follow his lead, but worry had consumed me and I did not see Him in front of me. Two years later I found myself back where I was before I lost the job. Back working 70 to 80 hours per week in pharmacy.

God put the movie “The Secret” in my path. He knew spiritually that I was ready for the message even though the movie was not a Christ centered message. He knew in my religious formation that I would see this movie in context of my Christian background. He knew that my intellectual side would pursue this idea further and look at how this principle applied to my walk with him.

The story hadn’t ended there. There is another part of the formula that I had not fully focused on at least not until MKMMA entered my life. Yes I did recognize I had an opportunity in network marketing because I was open and wanted more our of my life but I still had not developed a keen awareness of my surroundings. God wasn’t finished yet.

Remember I was praying to find a way to replace my income. That I was burned out and unsatisfied with where I was in my life; my career path wasn’t fulfilling a deeper meaning, a deeper purpose.

A big part of the Law of Attraction’s success come from taking some action toward what it was that you wanted but there is another part of the formula. I had to develop a more intense awareness of the things that were around me. The tools, the opportunities, the people that were there and have been there all along that I just did not see because I was so focused on taking care of needs. I could never even began to think about the deeper, more intimate desires for my life.

For the past three years I have been so restless. Things in life just seemed so out of whack. Yes I lost my job and then found another thanks to God but it did not feel fulfilled. Something was just missing. Call it mid-life crisis, burn out or whatever you like to call it but life just did not seem to have a meaning any longer. I knew I should be thankful for where I am in life and for all that I had accomplished but where I am and where I thought I would be by now just didn’t match up. My restlessness had become all consuming.

I had found what I believed to be a way to rectify this restless feeling. I knew that network marketing held the answer for me because it could give me the time freedom and financial freedom that I needed. But how do I switch from being a successful pharmacist working for someone elses dreams to becoming an entrepreneur pursuing what I wanted out of life.

To be successful in this new endeavor I needed to develop a new set of skills. It took 5+ years in college to become a pharmacist so I new it was going to take a little time to have the same success so I began taking classes and reading everything I could get my hands on in the way of coaching and personal development. On this quest I met many fantastic people, some virtually through books and on-line, others in person. I consider them mentors.

Last year on this journey I came across a network marketing trainer, Mark Janeszuski. His training systems and videos gave me insights into this business that I had never even considered. He made me start considering the other person. What did the prospect think. What they thought about me; what they though about themselves; what they thought about my opportunity and how I could build better rapport with the prospect.

It was in this training that I finally began to look inward at myself and what I thought about me. What I had been thinking and how I have been holding myself back from success. I began to realize that I determined my own success and failure more than the action of the other people around me. That’s how I became aware of the MKMMA program; actually more of a self-discovery, self-awareness program.

It has been through this program that I have developed a deeper relationship with my God because through this program I have become more keenly aware of myself; the various universal laws and how they affect me. And the Law of Attraction is just one of those universal, God given laws.

The point is folks, set some goals. Not just some goals but think outside the box. Look deeply into yourself and at what you really want to accomplish in life? I’m not talking about the material things that you want. Those will come as you achieve the deeper more meaningful goals for your life. For myself it boils down that I want to achieve autonomy and liberty. That is I want to be able to be personally responsible for my accomplishments or failures. I don’t want others to tell me yes I can do something or no I can’t. I want the freedom to be my own boss; to achieve at my own pace and to help as many others as possible realize their inner most desires for their life.

Once you determine the deeper more meaningful desires of your life start thinking about what you need to do, what people and what tools need to be brought into your life to accomplish those goals. Start working toward attracting those things into your life, paying close attention to the things that come your way and start taking actions, no matter how small they are that will put you on that path.

While you start following that path, relax, let go and let God. Trust in the direction you go and keep your mind open to the possibilities of change then be conscious to the people and circumstances that come into your life. Just because something that happens doesn’s seem to be the right circumstance, be open and take a deeper look at whatever it is.

You will be amazed at what happens. It’s kind of like when you buy a new car or maybe a new pair of boots or something. Once you buy it you suddenly see other people all around you that have the same thing. They have been there all along you just never noticed. The same thing happens once you Let Go and Let God and you open up your mind to be conscious to the people and circumstances around you that can help you move in the direction of your deeper major purpose of life. Some have been there all along God will bring the rest to you if you trust.

Week 13 – Why some have success while others don’t – Post 317

Why do some people have success while others don’t?SuccessFailure

Do successful people possess some supernatural powers that others of us don’t have? Not really. From a scientific view point we are all basically the same. We have all come the same basic building blocks of life and we all share the same primordial DNA. Yes we all have different abilities, traits, talents. Some of us are physically stronger, others have finely tuned critical thinking skills, while others excel in the arts. But successful people can be found within these various groups.

Does success therefore come from Divine Intervention. We all know people that live their entire life for God but never seem to get a break. And we know of people that are pure evil yet still seem successful. I just don’t see an all knowing, all loving God being that unfair. Why even try if you have no control of the outcome. Instead I believe God put us all hear and gave us all the basic laws of the Universe. It is how we use those laws that determine our success.

Maybe some people have success while others don’t because that’s just the way it is. No sense trying to figure it out. If that was the case then Columbus would have never discovered America. The world is flat after all, that’s just the way it is. The Wright brothers would have never flew because people can’t fly. We would have never landed on the moon, etc. Because of the universal power of thought, someone thought it could be done and succeeded.

Thought alone isn’t the answer. I have often heard “you become what you think about most.” If that’s the case then why haven’t more people achieved success?

In the movie The Secret they discuss the law of attraction at length. In one part they discussed when people dwell on debt or illness they always seemed to get more of the same. People that have achieved success discuss in the movie how when they concentrated their thoughts on success, success came their way. Many people that watched the movie came to the conclusion that all they had to do was concentrate on what they wanted and it would just happen.  Nothing happened for them so they threw out the law of attraction.

The law of attraction is one more powerful tool that can be used to achieve success. People failed to see in the movie that the law of attraction is not a lottery ticket for success. Instead it attracts circumstances to you that you have act upon which then brings the next circumstance.

I see this in my own home business. I talk to people all the time that need and want extra income in their lives. Some don’t believe it’s possible; they don’t believe they are worthy or only the lucky could reach those goals so they reject what I have to offer them. Others have a lottery mentality. They join expecting instant results. They never put in the necessary effort. Fail, quit and say it’s not possible, those things never work.  Yet it’s working for me and thousands of others.

So why do some people have success while others don’t?

When most people think of success they are thinking of material wealth. Haanel talks about how we utilize the law of attraction to manifest material things like wealth. We concentrate on wealth. Circumstances come along to get us there. We take action on those circumstances and finally achieve material wealth only to discover we’re not satisfied or we are only temporarily satisfied.

This is where I believe the power of creative thought comes in. We must use creative thought to define exactly what success means to us. We need to start with what do we really want? What we really want is happiness and harmony. If we are truly happy we can have everything the world has to offer. If we are truly happy we can make others happy.

Haanel says we cannot be happy unless we have health, strength, congenial friends, pleasant environment, and sufficient supply to take care of our own necessities and to provide for those comforts and luxuries that we are entitled to.

I now see how all the exercises we have been doing in this Master Keys course have all been created with this end point in mind. Our DMP helped us to determine what our own definition of happiness would be. All the exercises of been toning up the skills needed so we can better utilize, to maximize the way we use the universal power of thought.
