Week 1 – post 3

Just downloaded the worksheets and items for week 2 – which kicks off tomorrow. Some of it I’m confused about – there is a lOT to understand. One thing I’m digging is the reading aloud of the Master Key lessons. They are deep and it takes doing the reading two times a day to have it sink in. At least for me.

I’ve been putting a lot of emotion into my DMP reading, and believing I can attain it, mostly… Am I the only one that questions themselves? I’m looking forward to joining, being a part of a mastermind to find out.

Week 1 – 2

Reading the daily selections (and there seem like a lot) of the Master Key – this is the longest and brings with it the most questions and excitement. – And the Blueprint two times a day, the first scroll from The Greatest Salesman – three times and day and my Definite purpose statement (haven’t yet heard from by guide whether it’s in alignment) three times a day and my greatest challenge is keeping all this reading and how often straight! I’m actually reading the Master Key material twice a day because I can do morning and night – yesterday, the first full day I worked a long time on my Definite purpose since I have 4… uncertain if that is too many, however they are vital to me. Anyhoo… since I write, love to write – decided to jot some of this down today…

Yesterday we also went over the Digital Solutions first class, mostly showing peeps how to do stuff on line… One thing I found of interest is that we will be sharing our blogs and have the requirement to read other people’s blogs. We shall see that that brings forth!

Week 1 – post 1

Took the first webinar on this journey into learning/experiencing The Master Key System yesterday. Avalanche of information and it was great.

A bit overwhelming and even though the leaders and team have done many things to make it easier – a video for nearly every step (truly awesome), and still there is a LOT to do, learn, accomplish!

Last night I took the papers up to my bedroom, read the Master Key sheets – the Blueprint page, the beginning of my DMP and the scroll 1 from The Greatest Salesman that I found online since my book is on its way. Was that everything? Sigh…

The biggest win for me was the commitment I’ve made to not watch a screen, or check my phone after doing the reading which I didn’t. So I slept well! Then this morning, I read it all again and sat in silence for 15 minutes. I actually sat in silence again when I came back from doing my barn chores. I want to get very clear so this sitting/meditation is vital.

More later as this adventure progresses. Uncertain who may be reading this, however thank you, if it’s you!

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
