The reading in the Master Key System from a couple weeks ago really came home to me again today. It said: “Knowledge does not apply itself; we as individuals must make the application, and the application consists of fertilizing the thought with a living purpose.”
As I read that again, I realized that’s exactly what I’m doing when I look each day to see what it is that I can have and can do…I’m applying what I know (I get what I focus on) to my daily life with a living purpose just like it says.
I see how I wasn’t really participating in it fully throughout my day before…and am excited that I am now! It sure was easy to fool myself into thinking I was doing everything I could do by following the instructions in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance. I realized though, that I was just living it in a compartmentalized way. I was just getting the lessons done, and not applying the principles as I lived the rest of my day. I love awareness. It gives me the opportunity of choosing to change…and that’s empowerment in itself!

About seven years ago I took a three day seminar that opened my eyes to how powerful we all are.
During those three days, we affirmed to ourselves over and over in the mirror that we were amazing .
At the end of those three days, we were to write an affirmation for ourselves that we were going to be saying to ourselves every day in the mirror for all of the next year.
The affirmation I wrote for myself was exciting and is the most empowering thing I have ever come to realize about myself. I will share it with you a little later. To this day, I still have it memorized. After the year was completed, I stopped saying it at some point, and I’m not sure why. You’d think I would have continued saying it, because that year I earned the highest income I’ve ever earned in my business. Now as I focus more on looking at each day with intention to see what I can have and what I can do, I am recommitting to saying this affirmation. It changed my life and results then, and I’m sure it will do it now. Here it is: “I am powerful! I decide and get clear on what I want, and it is magnetized to me. I am AMAZING!” Because I’m wanting to train myself to remember to look for what I can have and what I can do, I may be saying it like this: “I am powerful! I decide and clear on what I want, can have, and can do, and it is magnetized to me! I am AMAZING!” To have every day be one that we are powerful, all we have to do is acknowledge that we are that powerful…saying it in the mirror to ourselves with enthusiasm helps our subconscious mind believe it too! I just gave you a gift – I hope you open it and use it!

I had a session with a very good friend the other day. She is very intuitive and helped me realize a flaw in the way I’ve approached my days. I told her I haven’t been making progress like I want to be, and that when I went into my email all I got done before I ran out of time was getting rid of what I didn’t want.
She told me that instead of focusing on what I want to get rid of in my life, surroundings etc. that I need to be focusing on WHAT I CAN HAVE, and WHAT I CAN DO to have it. This reminded me of something I learned many years ago – that how we do one thing is how we do many things. My clarity about the way I was approaching my email helped me to see (when it was pointed out) that I was doing that same thing in most areas of my life!
My thoughts went to when I made presidents’ club several years ago. I looked at what I wanted, I “sold myself” on the idea and believed I could have it because of a certain circumstance, and then I decided what I could do to have it, and I got it!
That’s how I will be approaching my days from now on. What can I have? What can I do?

There is no meaning to anything except that which we give it. Two people can experience being stopped on the freeway when they are in a hurry to get somewhere; one will rant and rave about how terrible it is, and even berate other drivers; another will realize and affirm that the delay is putting them in perfect timing for something. The result of the experience is different for each person. The person who is knowing it is terrible that he got delayed will most likely have an unpleasant day awaiting him, missing appointments or not being able to get the things done he wanted to. The same experience for the other person, however, gives him perfect timing for his appointment, and he even meets someone whom he is excited to meet in the store by chance, and he wouldn’t have met them if the timing had been any different! This is an illustration of one of the laws of the universe – we get what we put out, AND WE CAN CHOOSE! It works like a boomerang.
We choose by how we respond to our surroundings. We can know what we are choosing and putting out by observing what is coming to us. If we don’t like it, we can change our thoughts and interpretations and get something different. We are powerful!

Celebrating! This week’s reading in the Master Key System Haanel wrote brings home some real progress I’ve made, and I’m Celebrating that progress! Let me tell you about it, and you can also know how to have the results to celebrate for yourself too!

In Week 10 of our reading, Haanel writes: “The ordinary man has no definite knowledge that nothing happens without a cause, and thinks chiefly to justify himself when things go wrong. If he fails as a businessman, he says that luck is against him. If he is a poor office man, he says that he could succeed better at some outdoor work. Instead of thinking his problem through to the end, he seeks to console himself with explanations and excuses. He thinks only in self defense.” That used to be me! This is my second time through the MKMMA Master Mind Alliance, and I know that the first time through brought me out of this self-defeating way of acting. Haanel goes on to say, “ On the contrary, the man who understands that there is no effect without an adequate cause thinks impersonally. He gets down to bedrock facts regardless of consequences. He is free to follow the trail of truth wherever it may lead. He sees the issue clear to the end.”

When something doesn’t go like we would like it to, it’s easy for us to cover our eyes and make excuses instead of looking with our eyes wide open to see what the cause of this thing was. It’s easier to justify ourselves and make excuses, because we just might find out that we’re the cause, and we think that would make us feel bad. Nothing could be farther from the truth, as long as we are willing to choose what will give us different results when we figure it out. It takes guts to admit that the cause was squarely in our corner because of our own thoughts and/or actions. I used to do that; then I chose to empower myself!
Instead of figuratively putting my hands over my eyes so I can’t see how I created a circumstance, I look with my eyes wide open!
When I see that I was the one that caused something I didn’t want, I feel empowered. That’s quite different than what I once thought I would feel if I looked and saw that I was the one who created problem. When we follow the trail of truth instead of covering our eyes, we have a choice. Having a choice and knowing we can affect our own life results is very liberating….because without it there is only a feeling of helplessness. Somehow, when I used to have my hands over my eyes, I must have thought helplessness was more desireable than what I would get if I looked. Now I’ve found that choice is empowerment and beats helplessness hands down! The key to feeling empowered is to understand the information in the Master Key System. I feel so blessed to understand!
