You are currently viewing Beef Stroganoff- MKE Week 11

Character, Mastery, Persistence, Plan, Purpose, and Self-Confidence were recurring themes in this week’s MKE. These are also the areas of my life that are in constant tweaking and development because of the trajectory I am on .

For Character, ending all my services/chores/actions with ” I keep all my Promises!” is the tool that helps with my growth in this area. I am constantly reminded that even if the skies are falling, whatever I promise to do, I must do it. Being a woman of my word and finishing what I start, help to build my character.

This will also build my self-confidence because as my character(reputation) is being built from doing as I promised, self-confidence is a spin off. John Wooden however states, ” Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” Over the years what people think of me has always been the all important thing for me. I am changing that in my subconscious when I read ” The Gal/Guy in the Glass.”

This in your face activity forces me to remember that at the end of the day, I must be true to myself, and it didn’t really matter what others thought. How can I say” I love you” to myself in the mirror when I have not been true to myself? Heavy stuff!

I am learning to analyze my actions and thoughts more on this journey. When I look back on things I have started and not finished, or career moves I have made because I was not seeing results quickly enough, it is because I have just not been persistent enough and did not build the habits of completion. Calvin Coolidge says,

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.. persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

I acknowledge now that no matter how many programs I have purchased, or how talented I think I am, if I do not persist in what I am doing it will never come to fruition and then my tendency has been to blame the inability of the program or course, or my lack of talent as the reason there was no success. Mark J talks about this in the trainings as me not taking responsibility. I am learning to do this better.

Consistently working on or referring to my DMP(Definite Major Purpose), keeps my plan ever before me and reminds me of my purpose for doing the MKE and everything else. Building my character, embracing my purpose, being persistent and developing more self-confidence all result in mastery. Pretty soon my not so healthy habits will be replaced by better ones.

I must also remember and practice giving more. How do I do this? As I give more persistently and help others to accomplish their dreams, my dreams will also be accomplished successfully in my business, health and life.

All my endeavors equal nothing if my thought life is not consistently checked and improved upon and if I do not believe that I can accomplish my DMP or my heart’s desires. I must also believe that my ‘desires have already been fulfilled, and its accomplishment is coming.’ This is what I call my Faith, and Master Key 11:35, reminds me from the Bible that:

” Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.. to remember that Faith is not a shadow, but a substance, ” the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

What is the final step in all this? Mark J says I must, ” Get rid of Beef Stroganoff!” In other words, I must get rid of my own bu** sh**! That is, get out of my own way and allow the Law of Attraction to do what it must- which is, to bring my Faith into manifestation. The more I give, the more I get.

I always keep my Promises!

    A lovely post and the way you finished it is strong. The power of giving is often misunderstood. I recently watched a film called “The Giver’ I found it most powerful in that when we fill ourselves with knowledge, understanding, and Wisdom, we have so much to give!!!! ~So much that it can change the world.
