2016 Week10-Change

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

Yup…still struggling with that.  :-/  C’mon, gimme a break…I’ve lived that way for 50 years.  Can’t just wave my magic wand and make it change…much as I wish.  I know I need to do the work to make the change…so I am…and I am focusing on letting my light shine as a favor to my future self and to all the others that I will help by doing so.

So three weeks have gone by in a flash again!?  This past week I noticed that I am in turmoil…bad turmoil… *squirrel*…I mean good turmoil.  I can only believe that in letting go of that which I do not want anymore (in order to get what I do want) I am destroying parts of me that is creating feelings of *here come the tears*                     ………       I can’t put it into words…

Okay…composing myself…  I am flashing back to the assignment of having be the silent non-opinionated observer for the week.  I still remember the sheer horror of becoming aware of what an opinionated person I was…am…was…am…WAS…  The awareness of that was heartbreaking, to put it mildly.

I shared on our mastermind that week and so vividly remember being told congratulations… yeah!!!…. celebrate…  What???  I was dumbfounded!  What are you talking about…did you not just hear what I said???  I am an opinionated bastard!!!… NO…NOT good!…NOT celebrating…  Why are you happy about hearing what I just said, I asked.  The answer took a long time…I mean a looooong time…to penetrate into my head and for me to understand it.

It’s not the fact of what I am that is being celebrated.  It is the fact that I am now AWARE of it!  Change can only happen, it can only begin… IF you are aware of the thing that needs to be changed.  So the celebration was not about me being an opinionated non-silent observer, the celebration was about the fact that I was now aware of me being an opinionated non-silent observer and NOW I can focus on change…changing me…changing my bad habit!

2016 Week09-Shrinking

Yes…I am still fighting about letting my light shine.

I listen to this clip multiple times a week…it still brings tears to my eyes…which to me, means I still have some work to do with it.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children do.  We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

For too long…as long as I can remember, I have “played small.”  I have shrunk around people, in hopes of not making them feel insecure around me.  Now that the awareness has been brought forth, it has opened my eyes and brought about a new perspective to me…and…as always…is horrifying me!  I am trying to chase back to this origin of belief…why…at what point did I believe it was mightier…it was right to shrink rather than to let my light shine?

Selfish!  Yes…that is the way I will approach my shrinking, as being a selfish act of myself.  “We are all meant to shine, as children do.”  Then I will begin to let my light shine!  “And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”  Unselfish!  Letting my light shine unconsciously gives other permission to do the same…. *Epiphany***

“As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  I’m in!  I can do this!  I will do this!  I AM doing this!!!

Lots of sits has brought me to lots of epiphanies.  Lots of awareness has brought me to new perspectives.  New perspectives have brought me to new ways of thinking.  New ways of thinking has brought me to new feelings.  New feelings have brought me to new beliefs.  New beliefs have brought me to new actions.  New actions have brought me to my new life.  My new life has brought me to such joy and happiness…I am grateful.  I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!

2016 Week08-Wait…WHAT?

Emerson loved the good and his life was a symphony of peace and harmony.  Carlyle hated the bad and his life was a record of perpetual discord and inharmony.

WOW!      Awareness…perspective…

Choice.  What once was, through the forming of our habits, has become subconscious…and happens without us ever consciously thinking about it anymore!!!???  Once we have lived the situation and decided our ‘feeling’ about it…over and over again, it becomes truth to us.  YIKES!  I have chosen to be how I am.  I can be what I will to be!  The very first time I looked at a glass half… is the glass half ‘full’ or half ’empty’?  Do I want my glass half full or half empty?  How did I first view it and how did I view it each time after the first?  Did I realize that I was creating the future me then?  “I” created in my mind the conscious decision to allow my subconscious to react to this situation exactly the same from that decision on.   *thinking*

Justin, my mastermind partner, brought to light the simple fact of origin.  Taking the thought back to the origination of the decision to see from our perspective, was it…is it truth…or lie…half full or half empty.  Building a lifetime of decisions based on truth that becomes evident are lies…is horrifying upon the moment you see your truth as lies.  What is truth?  Is my truth lies to someone else?  Are my lies truth to someone else?  What causes us to decide how we do at first…state of mind?  Does a bad state of mind doom us from that point forward?

My new awareness is teaching me to keep away the negative…and OMG, even hating the bad is bad!  Law of Growth dictates that which you focus on grows, that which you don’t, atrophies.  Love…good = peace and harmony.  Peace and harmony are becoming my friends.  I choose to now focus on the positive…half FULL from this point forward.  It has shaken a core element in me that is allowing me to recreate me and my life to EXACTLY how I want it!  I BELIEVE

2016 Week07-Step by Step

Remember that old scary game…step by step…closer I get…I remember chasing my sister around the house at night chanting that…  I’m kinda reverting back to childhood memories lately…could that be my new blueprint rewinding back and looking to overwrite my old one???…Hell Yes!!!  Wasn’t that what I wrote in one of my first posts about starting this journey…wanting to reboot myself with a wiped, clean hard drive ready to load a whole new operating system onto?  HELL YES!!!  It’s happening!  Step by step…bit by bit…old unwanted chips of cement are being chipped away and slowly I am starting to see my gold…starting to hear my dream that is calling.  It has been a truly amazing journey so far and I am readying myself for the incredible journey that I am finally stepping into…answering the call!

You have to let go of the life you have in order to get the life that you want.  That was a tough one!  I’m mister not like change….eeeeerp….rewind…what did I say???  I am mister let’s change it up meow!  Goodbye old crap…hello dreams!  Let’s see…what do I want?  Such a change of mindset…I am so happy…so full of love and life and gratitude and possibilities…I great this day with love in my heart!  I create my own daily schedule now…doing WHAT I WANT TO DO!!!  YIPPEEEEEE!…my DMP (Definite Major Purpose) is manifesting!!!

Awareness has created a new perspective for me now…and I plan to keep digging in further and further.  During our last MKMMA, Mark J shared a video that brought tears to my eyes.  I have seen this video a few times but for some reason, never connected with it the way I did today.  So much so that I have to put it on my blog now so that I can stay with it and gauge my growth by the reaction I have each time I watch it.

“…there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you…”   O    M     G    That was ME!!!  I’ve done this my whole life.  I would usually never allow myself to “gloat” around others whenever I was having a great day…or share something awesome that was happening to or for me…or, or, or…I can think of a pile of things.  That is exactly what I would do…SHRINK…so that others wouldn’t feel insecure around me!  I even just had this discussion with my Dad a few months ago!!!???  He reamed my butt for “shrinking” and not shouting from the rooftops.  Looks like I got some work to do…


2016 Week06-Linking

I’m getting a fix on how to link…and learning to train myself to do it…to focus on linking. It brings back thoughts of ….you know how you never really see any Subaru’s on the road…UNTIL you buy one, then they’re all over the place!? Kinda like that! My challenge has been trying to remember to remember…does that make sense? Kinda like the before stage of seeing Subaru’s on the road…before you are sitting in one driving it. Hmmmmm Experiment thought…tomorrow look for Subaru’s. At the end of the day write that number down. …or did you get home and forget all about looking for Subaru’s? …my experiment; I look for Blue Rectangles …2 new customers, 2 new clients, 2 new business partners 12/31/16, Red Circles …save my clients $500,000.00 12/31/16, Green Triangles…Managing Director 12/31/16, and Yellow Squares…10 clients & 250 customers 12/31/16. I’ll tell you if I do as well as the Subaru results 😉

I’m going through an amazing learning journey that is hard to put into words. Well…okay…maybe two… my new favorite words; Awareness and Perspective. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Oh my goodness, YES! When you realize that you are in control of WHAT you are looking for…and you use that power for good, to search for only good, which is exactly what we want for ourselves anyway, really…right? Then only good you will find and all that good that you’ll find will make you just that much more positive and happier…yes? Oh….I smell another experiment coming; Let’s count how many good things we can see tomorrow. A random act of kindness…or any other small incident that touches your heart or makes you smile. I know there have been a lot more sightings by me! …and if I can get more people looking for happy, wouldn’t that bring more happiness into our world? I Believe …Blessings

2016 Week05-MyDMP

Leaving you hanging on my Definite Major Purpose…shame on me! 😉

My PPN’s are: Helping Others and Liberty

I awake each morning excited and grateful for the blessing and promise of a new day. Enthusiasm swells inside me and starts driving every cell in my body toward creating new ways to help others with my network marketing experience and financial wisdom. Whomever God decides to put in my path today, I will help. I help people without expectation of reciprocity because I know I am in the dynamic flow of giving and receiving. I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy.
By helping 2 more people become my Ambit customers, 2 more people become my Common Sense clients, and 2 more people join with me as business partners, on or before January 31st, 2017, I have made at least $10,000.00. Everyday I gladly exchange watching TV and hanging out, for productive time, working with business partners, clients, and suspects, to acquire the money that is mine. On or before July 31st, 2017, I have hit the $10,000.00/month income level and tears of happiness stream down my face as I realize I have reached Liberty!
I am effortlessly connecting with smart, motivated, coachable people, hundreds of them, that blooms confidence inside me like a rose bud blooming and sharing her beauty for all to enjoy. Each person that joins with me boosts my spirit and enthusiasm and from within I erupt with even more unrestrained happiness as I have connected to what my heart wants, helping others financially and spiritually.
Collaborating with these people, using the Hero’s Journey skills, helps us to identify their hopes and dreams. Helping them reach their goals fulfills me more deeply than I could have ever imagined. On or before December 31st, 2016, I have saved my clients over $500,000.00 of interest they will never pay a lending institution.
My positive, enthusiastic attitude continues to bring me to higher and higher levels of success, education, and knowledge. My enthusiasm, confidence, intelligence, achievements, friends, happiness and wealth are growing daily by leaps and bounds, which makes me feel absolutely ecstatic and unstoppable.
Each time I bring someone from not knowing or understanding the big picture of his or her financial situation to knowing and understanding it and implementing a strategy that creates their debt free future, it makes me feel rewarded, grateful, fulfilled and complete.

Definite Major Purpose

MY Definite Major Purpose

Fifty-some odd years in the making…FINALLY initialized and beginning! I was going to say done…but then realized, it will never be done…it will always be changing and evolving, like me!

For as long as I can remember people always asked me…what do you want to be when you grow up, what do you want to be…and now in the MKMMA Mark asks me “WHAT DO YOU WANT?” Yikes! Stop asking me….I don’t know!!! I would go round and round and round in my head trying so hard to narrow down what I wanted to do. I had always had problems making decisions in my life…even the simple ones, so how was I supposed to decide this…and do I really have to???

I came across a read which brought about an awareness which brought about a change in me and my attitude about making decisions. NOT making a decision, especially when others are involved, was…is, the ultimate self-centered, controlling trait of someone to be in control of someone else. Another Yikes! The more I thought about this…the truer it seem to become. Then I become involved in situations where my lack of decision-making became a strain on the people involved…and I began to see this analysis as truth…and it was not very pretty. Of course awareness leads to a change of perspective…and perspective, to me, means a reason to change when what you are looking at doesn’t please oneself.

So I have started focusing on making decisions. A great perspective came to me in another read; God did not put in me the ability to make the right decision every time, but he did put in me the ability to make a decision and then make it right! Making decisions has become my new awareness and my new goals. Deciding that my two PPN’s (Personal Pivotal Needs) are Helping Others and Liberty, started me on my way to focusing on what I want. Now I formulate incorporating my Personal Pivotal Needs into my life!…into my NEW life!!!

2016 Week03-Focus

I was trying to get in my head this week what I need to have in order to be able to do better than before. Some of the words I brainstorm with are; Focus, Understanding, Action Plan, Scheduled, Commitment, Concentration, Practice, Taking Action, Hard Work, Big Payoff, Discipline, Drive, Desire, Why, Success. There is a level of commitment … or schedule of events that I need to acquire. I am working my way toward acquiring the right blend of each of the qualities mentioned before to jump start me up onto the next level of my life.

It is sometimes during these times of thinking and writing that things click for me. Sometimes even after reading my writing something clicks or I become aware of something. Sometimes someone will leave a comment that brings everything all together for me and I am filled with gratitude. Thank you.

This week, as each week, I renew myself. I renew my thinking, I think, I sit, I meditate…I create my world within to create my world without. I listen to my heart, not only allowing but, actually focusing on having it guide me. It feels so …like a weight has been lifted off of me… so… free to be able to do what I want!!! I schedule each day for what I want to do… simply amazing! Why had I not been able to see what I see so clearly now…then? …because I did not have the awareness… because I didn’t want to step out into the unknown, the scary unknown. Old quiet desperation was a lot more comfortable and familiar than stepping outside that realm and seeing what the world was waiting to share with me!

Looking forward to tomorrow!


…and 2 weeks are gone…BAM! Time has a new perspective to me…I LOVE MY NEW LIFE!!! Doing what I want…really…freaking…awesome! When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. WOW!…there’s a mouthful because soooo many things are changing for me. I used to have thought that things were changing and not understood the reason those things changed was simply because I was looking at them differently. So many new things to look at! The world is full of little inexplicable miracles which I am blessed to be a part of.

Third time’s the charm they say…well hello third time! Last year I was able to let go of my 30 year banana, this year I am really excited to see what letting go of the life I had so that I can have the life that I want produces. Nose to the grindstone (no nose comments)…now. I need to get into my planner and write my life into play. I find that the more I have in my planner…written in my handwriting, the more I get accomplished. If it isn’t written, it is not true- I have heard and now understand why. I notice having it in my passion planner gets it done! …but yet I still strive to use it as much as I wish I could…blue, red, green, yellow colored pencils and using my left hand feels so not like me…so cool!

I am trying to get the linking going on but it is taking a lot of … … trying to remember what I am supposed to be thinking…linking. Blue rectangle, or blue, or rectangle…2 more customers, 2 more clients, 2 more business partners by December 31st, 2016. How do I keep that in my mind…get it into my mind, let it into my mind and past the gatekeeper to get it into my subconscious where it will take care of the linking from now on so I don’t have to worry about worrying about it anymore 😉

Focus Danielson, FOCUS!

I Believe!

2016 Week01-Beginning

Already September 25th is upon me again. Years fly by as months used to. How many Septembers do I have left? As the 3rd session of the MKMMA begins, I am happier than I was last year at this time and I look forward to this session with a “3rd times the charm” optimism. Last year I let go of my banana 3 months after the start of the session. 3o years with Snap-on Tools seemed not only enough, but after I let go, it seemed like way too many! It amazes me that when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. I’ll keep sharing my two favorite words: awareness and perspective. When your awareness of something surfaces, there is a complete new perspective of it. These words have been such a huge part of my life these last two years and I will continue chipping off the cement and searching for my gold. For those that ask “What the heck does that mean?”

I am pretty excited for what is about to happen in the next 6 months as I strike out on my journey again. I am grateful for and to those that will be with me, will support me and those that will accept me as I continue changing myself to be the person that I want to be and chase my dream that is calling. I Believe!
