Week Thirteen: October Sky

Part of our assignment this week with the Master Key Mastermind was to watch one or more of four movies that speaks to the very life lessons we have been learning these past 12+ weeks.  The first of the four movies I watched was October Sky.  How inspiring!  Young Homer, a high school student in a coal mining town was inspired by the Sputnik rocket he and his town observed on its maiden run.  The seed of desire was planted — His dream was big with possibilities and he had the willingness to take extraordinary measures and efforts to see it manifested.  As our teachings clearly urge, he established a “mastermind alliance” among his peers and surrounding adults to support and encourage him as well as contribute to the process.  His teacher, Miss Riley was extremely instrumental in nurturing his early defined DMP (definite major purpose) until it was strong enough to withstand the usual push back from those with myopic vision.

One of my favorite lines in the movie is an exchanged between Homer and one of his “early-on” adult supporters–a welder.  Homer’s request for further welding assistance was repeatedly turned down.  The welder said, “You don’t give up do you?”  Homer’s reply, “I can’t!”  …and he didn’t.  Even when the look of despair was all over his face.  At one point he was looking up to the the stars in the sky with despair all over his face because he was traveling away from his dream as he was being lowered below the ground into the mines.  Wow…what a great visual…

Finally remember, to launch your dream it most likely will required a short term sacrifice for the long term benefit.  More specifically, you may need to maintain your “day” job while consistently working on your dream in every waking moment beyond core commitments.  Despite nay-sayers including key loved ones, little Homer kept believing, kept learning, kept growing and kept pressing on to ultimate success.  It’s a delightful movie to watch and even more inspiring .  Check it out!

Week Twelve – Get Honest & Get Busy Now!

alt_12-09-13

Each week in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance we are given instructions to prepare for the week, key thoughts and reminders to keep in mind and a list of honorable and tangible requirements.  This week prep bullet number 3C arrested my attention.  It states, “It’s time to get completely HONEST with yourself…it’s time…RIGHT NOW to start over if you messed up…restart now. Your future life is worth it. “Do it now.”

I love the grace of a restart. In the past I’ve labeled it a rebooting, redesigning, etc. and have often encouraged my coaching clients to begin by being completely honest with themselves–and with me.  What do you REALLY want?  What have you REALLY been doing toward the goal you indicated as important?  Once they have come clean, it is then time to release any feelings of condemnation or regret associated with “messing up” — “clean the slate” and begin again.  I choose to allow myself the same opportunity and commit today to begin again with a renewed focus and associated actions to be back on track for mental mastery and ultimately optimal physical manifestations.  The Word speaks of forgiveness and restoration generously given and I choose to fully accept it, exhale, roll up my sleeves and get busy.  You too can do the same. No matter what may have been or is the issue, exhale, roll up your sleeves, get honest and get busy!

Week Eleven: Cease & Desist

CEASE AND DESIST DEMAND

Pursuant to Title 11 of the Winner’s Code – I Persist, I Win!

December 11, 2014

Cie Jai’s Subby

606 Comfort Lane

Stymied City, RS (Restricting Success)

Dear Ms. Subby:

I am writing to notify you that your defaming, slander, and limiting of my potential must stop immediately.  You are infringing upon my optimal success.  Accordingly, you are hereby directed to

CEASE AND DESIST ALL UNDERMINING AND LIMITING ACTIVITIES.

More specifically, it has come to my attention that you are defaming me by claiming I’m intended to live a nice but mediocre life.  Further you’ve tried to pass off as true that I will quit changing my blueprint because of setbacks in my efforts in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance work.  WRONG!!

The truth is, I am indeed powerful beyond measure and will absolutely experience exponential growth, success and fulfillment in the weeks, months and years to come.  The truth is I’m the head and not the tail, above and not beneath.  The truth is I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  Yes, the truth is I am fearfully and wonderfully made and no weapon, including your hindering attempts, shall prosper.  The truth is I will never give up–I will never give in–I will never give out–it’s not over until I win.  I persist, I win!!

If you continue to engage as this restrictive and hindering force after receiving this letter, your actions will be evidence of the need to apply the full force of my mental reconditioning law enforcement agency.

If you or your rationalizing attorney have any questions, always remember my answer and commitment is, “I Persist, I Win!!”

Sincerely,

7 Star Diamond Coach, Celeste Jonson

Week Ten: Persist, Win!

images-33

This week in our Master Key Mastermind journey we switched to read the scroll marked 3 for 30 days in Og Mandino’s Greatest Salesman in the World.  The message: I will persist until I succeed!  That is such an important message to live by following the first  i.e. Today I begin a new life and I will greet this day with love in my heart.  There are so many quotes and messages around the topic of persistence and I thought I’d share ten of my favorites with you.  Enjoy

10 Great Messages on Persistence

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.  Calvin Coolidge

Indeed Mr. Coolidge!

Growing up in a group home, and with an undiagnosed learning disability to boot, the odds of success were not on my side. But when I joined the high school football team, I learned the value of discipline, focus, persistence, and teamwork – all skills that have proven vital to my career as a C.E.O. and social entrepreneur.  Darell Hammond

Sounds like the Master Keys Darell…

Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.  Hal Borland

Think about that…

Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.  Bill Bradley

Start the engine!

Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.  Denis Waitley

No more excuses…it’s time to win!!

Energy and persistence conquer all things.  Benjamin Franklin

Old Ben at it again!!

As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.  Denis Waitley

Indeed.

The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.  Napoleon Hill

The Law of Substitution.

Paralyze resistance with persistence.  Woody Hayes

That’s a good one!!

Throughout human history, in any great endeavour requiring the common effort of many nations and men and women everywhere, we have learned – it is only through seriousness of purpose and persistence that we ultimately carry the day. We might liken it to riding a bicycle. You stay upright and move forward so long as you keep up the momentum.  Ban Ki-moon

Say amen somebody!!

Either way you look at it, I choose to persist until I succeed.  I win!!
