Week 12 – Mental Diet Mastermind Success

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michael @ 6:14 pm

It was a week like most others, many ups and some downs. As far as my commitments to read Og, my DMP (Definite Major Purpose), POA (Plan of Action) and Blueprint builder – well, each day started on the right foot. However, I failed to read a second or third time on many days. I ran or walked 6/7 days last week which is good! I’ve not had a SIT (15-20 minutes of silent meditation) at all this week, in spite of the fact that I read how crucial it is in Chapter 12 of Charles Haanel’s Master Key Experience. I will resume that this week! In spite of my failures, there was a victory this week of almost breakthrough proportion. And that was with the affirmation cards.

As expected, not sticking with my POA, or the SIT is directly the cause of the downs, and when I was down this week, my wonderful wife said, “Go read your cards.”  On last week’s webinar, we were instructed to write 30-50 cards stating personal accomplishments, and other positive aspects of our lives… things that made us feel good.  I did that, and I’m glad I did.  When I was down, I took my wife’s advice,  sat down and read those cards, and immediately turned my attitude and my day around!  The rest of the day was great.

Why?  Three Laws –

The Law of Dual Thought: I can attach any feeling I desire to any thought – my choice.

The Law of Substitution: I can instantly replace a negative thought with a positive one.

The Law of Growth:  Whatever I think about grows, and whatever I forget about atrophies, without exception.

So recommitment is in order, and it begins immediately!


  1. Awesome Michael, I hear you and I sure can relate with your struggles, but I love to hear your revelation, keep flashing this cards and you will praise the lord for it.

  4. Thank you for being honest! Great that you don’t give up and that you know how to put yourself in a positive state of mind. You have the power and you will succeed coming back to the daily exercises with SIT and reading. Just go for it! You can do nothing but win!
