Week 12 Money Grows

 

Japanese Proverb “Money Grows on the Tree of Persistence” With my MK course, the first two weeks of December we have been reading Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World. We are currently on Chapter 10, the scroll Marked III. “I will persist until I succeed.” I recognize that I am tested by life each day.

These first 2 weeks I have been tested just like the young bull in the fight arena. We have been in the process of selling the house that we had remodeled. Built in 1936, it needed much repair and remodeling. We started with a 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath house. We finished with a 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath with a small garage apartment in the rear. Since the garage was built originally on the lot line with a dirt floor, it could not be torn down and rebuilt on the same spot. We lifted the good parts,(roof and much of the siding) poured a foundation, put in a bathroom and call it a “Casita”.

My test came when we had a buyer that works for the Railroad. We build to city code and remodel to the same standard. Little did I know, until last week, that the Railroad has a different set of codes that they require. There were 12 items to be corrected and we went about making the adjustments. There were 2 items on the list that had us tearing up the house we so nicely remodeled. Since these two items were to city code, we simply documented the information and passed that information to the buyers.

This was the test. Those two items would blow the entire contract with our buyers. The Railroad requires certain repairs that exceed city code, that we were not aware of at the time. Here we are on closing day, Friday, scrambling to satisfy the Railroad. We finally understood the the Railroad guarantees their employees that the house can be resold in five years when they are transferred again to another assignment. We did close Friday and the two repairs will be done to Railroad standards.

Thru this process I was thankful to be reading my Og. Knowing that as I persist, success does come, we are tested each day like the young bull.

Love, Harmony, and Persistence

Week 17a Persistence Is

 

This week in my Franklin planner we are using for the next 13 weeks, I had written persistence. The assignment 4 weeks ago was to give an order to the 13 character traits given on the Franklin makeover.  So as assigned, I wrote them down, no particular order, just a random assembly of the words assigned.

Persistence…firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

At this juncture, I can say that persistence has produced unimaginable results.  At the start of this week I had been working for about 3 weeks on getting finances together for a project I am working on.  On Friday I received the “Preliminary Term sheet” with that financing from a local bank.  It was my third try and my third bank.

Yea, persistence pays off, or was it the Blueprint Builder? “I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people.  I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others.”

This whole experience with MKMMA has been amazing and this week in particular I feel completely blessed to be here.

On the lookout continually for better health, “True Health” due in part to two of my family members very ill for several years with Lyme disease at their young ages of 36 years.

Today, by chance?  Or divine order….(this is what I believe)..

I was in a meeting to hear about a new Laser treatment and at this meeting was a Nutritionalist. After her presentation,  I had an opportunity to converse with her directly about her knowledge on Lyme disease.  At the time I had no idea if she was familiar with Lyme disease, but as it turns out she even knows the Doctor we have been working with to help my family.

The information she was then to convey to me will make a tremendous improvement in the way treatment will commence.  She believes in all natural treatments and has a protocol she uses with Lyme that has been effective for others.  Her suggestions will give a great advantage and I am hopeful once again for health of my family.

I am so excited about our course in the Master Key…These happenings are all part of the new dharma I am projecting.  The last 17 weeks, I have felt that others were “getting it” and I was not.

Persist….I am (and family) whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy2014-12-18_1136
