Week 2 – The Hero’s Journey – Sock It To Me


I’m nearing the end of week two of this incredible 26-week journey into my soul; the Genius that lives within me.  And already Og Mandino’s promises are coming true.  On page 56 of The Greatest Salesman in the World, he writes, “…I will begin to awake, each morning, with a vitality I have never known before.  My vigor will increase, my enthusiasm will rise, my desire to meet the world will overcome every fear I once knew at sunrise….”  I can’t believe I am resting in the arms of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance; well not really “resting.”  I’m doing my work, but it’s Fun, (with a capital F.)

I love all of the readings and the assignments.  I am at 100%; haven’t missed a task.

I’ve always been a collector of miracles, and tiny ones have been arriving in my pocket this week; so small that I barely notice.  I am a writer who is working on her first book.  The book is very much part of my DMP, (Definite Major Purpost.)  While writing I often find myself kissing myself on the shoulder, (MUAH!), then adding the little masterpiece to my ever-growing manuscript.  Where are these little bits of perfection coming from?  The Universal Fountain of Supply, that’s where.

In The Master Key System, Charles Haanel claims that my conscious mind is the gatekeeper to my subconscious mind protecting it from wrong thoughts slipping in, allowing only good thoughts to enter.  I must ever be vigilant and think good thoughts.  My conscious mind has the high function of completely reversing conditions in my life.

Whoa!  Just think about that for a moment. That’s pretty potent!  There’s only one word to describe that idea, (which I hereby borrow from Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and any other dude from the Beat Generation.)  That word is “deep”!

Can you imagine having the power – I mean really having the power – to choose your destiny?  And all you have to do is THINK.
