MENTOR :: MOTIVATOR :: MOTHER ::
Mind blowing for sure!! Each week I continue to put the pieces together. It is alike a huge puzzle that I have not actually seen the picture of the puzzle. Each week I start to understand how last week fits into the this week. It is so exciting and eye opening.
Substitute constructive thought for destructive thought!! (Part of Week 8) Really, why did I not think of this before! I do have s strong word I use when a thought tries to get into my brain and I do not want it there. I say the word "impervious." When someone says something rude or something that use to be (many of the negative thoughts are gone and in many cases I don't even remember what they were, I say to my self I am impervious and the thought stops. What I did not realize in many cases I would substitute a constructive thought about the destructive thought. Being more aware of this is really exciting. Now in Week 9 I am actually replacing my destructive thought with "I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy." Boom! I have also shared this affirmation with several people I know.
My character is not a thing of chance, I have been working on this for years. When I do or say something that is out of character for me it weighs on me, I have learned to give myself grace. I am careful what I say. Our words have a ripple effect on the people around us and the world around us. Much of what I have learned over the years has created incredible relationships for me with my son and daughter, and for my husband and me. I do have a lot of love in my life and tremendous friendships. This is all because I learned to say "Thank you" when I am complemented and I studied and realized the importance of gratitude, forgiveness, and respect. I believe "respect" is the reason my husband and I have been married for 37 years and that we enjoy each others company everyday . . . and my goal to bring home all of my pie!
Chaos vs Cosmos! For some reason this phrase really hit me. I know people who live in complete chaos and that use to be me. You would not believe the things that were happing in my life because I was not present to my surroundings. I was rushing from one thought to the next and never really appreciating anything good I had in my life. I was constantly wining and pointing the finger at everyone for everything that was happening. It was the banks fault I was over drawn, it was the guys fault that stopped to quickly and I ran into his bumper... this happened 3 times! There are way too many things to list here, and besides I am not that person anymore however, (you are experiencing my future self) now it is easy for me to recognize the chaos in someone else's life. I see how the laws can create chaos if not used correctly.
Imagine you wake up everyone morning with a full pie, you most favorite pie, this is appropriate since it is Thanksgiving and I love pumpkin pie, especially my husbands pumpkin pie! He makes the best. Each encounter during the day you have the choice to give a pice of your pie away! Someone cuts you off on the way to work, you get upset and say a few words and whoops, there goes a piece of your pie. The goal is to keep all your pie and bring it home to your loved ones. If you give it away all day to an employee you made you mad, or your boss says something you didn't like there goes another piece of your pie. We have a saying when someone comes home and they say that had a bad day, we ask them if they gave their pie away. And, if they are in a bad mood of course they gave all their pie away and they have nothing left for those they truly love. Using this example and the pie metaphor has kept me from having a lot of really bad days. I always want to save as much pie as I can for my family.
The mental diet, I believe is a life time example of how to live a truly happy life! While, it was apparent to me during the mental diet I could do a much better job. I am still working on my 7 days straight, I am embracing it every day! Thank you for this exercise. I feel I have master much and still have a lot to learn.
I have had to start over daily because of my negative thoughts. The great thing is that most of the negative thoughts I use to have about myself I have worked really hard on those over the years. However, the subby is in charge and I realize while I consciously I am not saying them to myself subby is really the one in control and the bad habits are deep seaded in there. I am recognizing how may new habits I have acquired over the years and a real recent one is to floss 2-3 times a day. So far I am doing great and I am starting to feel the nudge when I don't do it. The subby is still there trying to convince me I don't have to do it and it is okay if I don't do it. Just like all my other tasks during the MKE!
I get it now, I am starting to understand the method to the madness!!
My DMP is really starting to come together and with the help from my guide I am starting to feel the energy when I ready it. It makes me smile when I read my press release. I have added a few images to my "Movie Trailer Board" and I am feeling there energy there too.
As you can imagine (I am a yellow) I love doing the activities that include the 3x5 cards, the posters and coloring for sure!
I always keep my promises!
I realized that last week was a blur! I had started on my Movie poster and never finished it, I was late with my DMP and I did not do my blog. I went back and realized how far behind I was and while I did not want to quit I gave myself grace. And, then I remembered on one of the MasterMind calls someone else was feeling overwhelmed and trying to catch up . . . "Do what you can and start right now!"
I am seriously loving all of this and I have realized that I have to really prioritize here. I have more than full time job, I have a Network Marketing team that is growing. My current job is demanding and many days it turns into a 12 hour day. I feel like I am managing a lot in my Network Marketing team that I have been growing for nearly 10 years. I make a decent income and I know I can make more.
I currently have little time to spend with my husband during the week and it is easy for me be distracted on the weekends getting to spend time with him. I am realizing I need to work smarter through the week so I can spend the weekend with him . As you can see from my movie poster that my husband and I have been able to travel quite a bit for business and for pleasure. I want to continue to do that. We have purchased our new camper and truck and have been to many places already this past summer. We have already booked several trips for next year. I want more time to travel and be with my husband and for me to be able to do that I have to understand what I really should be doing in my business. I have signed up for Simple6 Master Mind and if you are in Network Marketing I highly recommend you do it too . . . and I would hurry because it starts this week (Nov. 10) and it is FREE!! https://simple6masterclass.com/
Joe Rogan Experience
Joe Rogan caught up with my husband and me in Austin while we were traveling around the country in our camper. He was very intrigued about how we were able to make money and even support organizations that are fighting human trafficking, serving our Veterans, and supporting families of children who want to play hockey and asked us to share all the amazing places we have visited in our beautiful country!
Joe: So Marianne how is that you and your husband are able to travel the country?
Marianne: I have earned a residual income with my network marketing business that has allowed me to travel around the country with my husband and serve the people we meet along the way with their health and even their income. What makes what I do so unique is that the products that I represent really work and the people I serve get terrific results and they share with the people they meet along the way.
Joe: Tell me more about the camper you live in and the truck you pull it with.
Marianne: Joe, I am glad you asked about our camper. We searched for 3 years to find the camper we wanted that would provide us the most comfort in the smallest space. It has all the technology you could ask for including a WiFi extender and a solar panel. But, the truck is the most impressive with twin turbo engines, pretty loaded Ford F150 and you can’t even tell the camper is back there, especially when going up a hill.
Joe: What are some of the amazing places you have been?
Marianne: We travel to different locations, usually every few weeks, and we make a plan to travel for a a month or two at a time depending where we are going. We have traveled down the West Coast visiting Washington, and the Redwood Forest. We have also traveled down the East Coast through Maine and down to Florida. Because of my business being worldwide, as you can imagine, we have lots of friends in the United States and occasionally we head to an airport and take off to Australia, New Zealand, and Scotland to see Loch Ness! We have seen Gettysburg and toured Manassas National Battlefield Park and Yorktown Battlefield Colonial National Park. My husband and I have become a bit of history buffs.
Joe: What words would you use to best describe the life you have created for you and your husband?
Marianne: I started out with Autonomy and Liberty! I created a life of freedom to come and go as I please and a way to bring my husband with me by earning an income that allowed me to pay off our camper and our truck to give us financial freedom. It gave us choices about when and where we wanted to live. We made our home base in Longmont, Colorado because both our kids and their families live there. We plan to make a new home base once it makes sense to move. We travel around the country visiting family.
Joe: I heard that you and your husband like to give back. What does that look like for you and Ken and why did you pick the particular organizations to support?
Marianne: As you know, Joe, human trafficking has grown over the years and has basically been ignored as we focused on other so called distractions in this country. It breaks my heart that thousands of children are taken every year never to be returned to their family’s along with teenagers and young adults. Most of the people involved have been above reproach until now. We also support Homeless Veterans who have been forgotten. We support an organization that builds tiny homes for Veterans and they have programs to get them back on their feet, address their needs to get them back into society. And, we also support families who have children who want to play hockey and are not able to afford the programs. Hockey is very expensive and when we were struggling financially there was an organization that supported our son so he could play hockey. We have given back many different ways over the years by volunteering our time and now we are able to support them financially. My life is about serving the people I meet and giving back to organizations that are close to my heart. I want to thank you, Joe, for letting me share our story of freedom and giving back.
God Bless you and your audience!
Joe: Marianne it has been an honor to spend time with you today and thank you for all you are doing to support and serve others!
We never know what to expect in life... sometimes the darkest moments become the brightest moments. Like you, I have had a life of ups and downs and at certain points in my life I wasn't sure if I could go get much further down.
