I LOVE DOGS! I love everything about them and like all breeds, especially huskies and pit bulls. This is one of my gifts and I feel I serve the world in this capacity with all kinds of things having to do with teaching, training, and finding the right pet for the right owner. I enjoy sharing what I know and being out in public, speaking in all kinds of surroundings. I am well thought of in the community and am asked to come back again after I speak.
The purpose of a Master Mind group is to get 4-10 like-minded, positive, proactive people together who want to make a difference in their lives and other people’s lives using the power of prayer. Visitors are always welcome. The ones that are supposed to stay with us always do.
Two group members, Miriam and Dave came from Michigan and used to go to Jack Boland’s church. Miriam says the whole point to the meetings is to support. “If your partner’s request is to grow two heads, then it is your responsibility to support them in growing two heads!” That’s it. Pretty simple and immensely effective.
Update the lists: I hadn’t updated my To Buy File in over a year. This is important to do. Even though we’d talked about perfect gifts throughout the year they weren’t in writing so my sweet husband, who prides himself in surprising people, had nothing to go by (or buy in this instance). So for Christmas I got two floor mats for the truck and a 5 pound container of Greek Seasoning. “I bet you’ll never figure these gifts out.” Uh, noooo. . .I never would have imagined. . .I accidentally let it slip that the floor mats were on the Do NOT give for any occasion file which hurt his feelings. We both felt bad and really didn’t have to.
For the Moving Towards Values Exercise, pick partners that support your beliefs and do not purposely challenge them or “push your buttons”.
Pick jobs that align with your values. (When you are happy you make more money anyway!)
Choose friends, relationships, organizations and hobbies that most align with your values.
These are the values that are your special gift to the world. Use them wisely, but most importantly, just utilize them!
For the Moving Away Values Exercise, pick a maximum of 10 values you would do anything to stay away from for this exercise. If you don’t see one that is important to you, then add it to the list. Now, taking two of the circled values at a time ask yourself or your partner. “Which is most important to me, this one—or this one?” Hint: Which value most sucks the life right out of you?
What are you doing in your life to put up roadblocks? Do you know your Life Purpose? Do your friends empower you or drag you down? Make changes in that area if necessary. Do you do things for your health that helps you carry out your purpose? Is the way you spend your money helping you to carry out your life purpose?
