Week 05 – Some Key Learnings

This was a good and bad week for me… good because I continued my trek on working exercises aimed at teaching me how to train my sub-conscious, but bad because I suffered a bad fall while knocking on the doors of prospective customers. Although I banged up my already bad leg, it turned into a positive, as I was able to show myself that even in this less than desirable circumstance, it is possible to maintain a positive mental attitude.

I thought this is a good time to summarize my leanings thus far.

  1. The circumstances of life we find ourselves in are the product of our own creation through the thoughts which we have, in times past, engaged in. We are simply receiving “our own”, and therefore have no just cause for complaint.
  2. Our Subconscious mind accounts for more than 90% of our mental thought. Most people never learn how to leverage their subconscious, which is mostly reacting as a result of our habits and hereditary influences from the past.
  3. The good news is that we can change that “Old Blueprint” of the subconscious mind by making proper use of the “gatekeeper”, i.e., our conscious thought processes. We can use our conscious, or Objective mind to create a new blueprint.
  4. Once we truly master the ability to train the subconscious (Subjective) mind and create that “New Blueprint”,  we experience changes in our outward circumstances. This doesn’t happen due to some mystical “new-age” experience, but rather through our influence through natural laws.

The new assignment for this week was to create a new page on this blog that was entitled “Press Release”, and was to contains am imagined interview that takes place some time in the future after my DMP (Direct Major Purpose) has been realized.  You can find this at the top of the page.  It took some time, but was fun to write.

In the first scroll of Mandino’s “Greatest Salesman In The World”, there is a paragraph that talks about how the creation of the new, positive habits causes us to face each day with new vigor, excitement, and a readiness to face the world without any of our previous fears.

I am beginning to experience this. It is freaking awesome!

    Enjoyed your post! Trust the leg is well on the mend. Love the paragraph…waking with a new vigor…too. Actually experienced doing so one morning this week. Immediately could bring my reading to mind. The pictures is adorable and captures it all so well!

  5. As verification of the truth found in Og stating that “Problems are merely opportunities in disguise,” may I suggest, Clay, the lesson you learned in discovering your ability to keep a + mental attitude, under less than desirable circumstances, may be worth far more than the amount of distress you had to endure to obtain it?
