It was interesting to observe my body’s reactions to my commitment to participate fully in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance sponsored by Mark and Davene Januszewski. It was as if my subconscious mind was anticipating dramatic disturbance in the status quo.
My internal gyroscope was on tilt! All sorts of fears and questions arose. What if you fail, again? What will your wife think? How will you make sure to succeed? What if you’re not good enough, skilled enough or sufficiently diligent?
My body even attempted to get me to make bad choices in response to the internal chemical cascade caused by the fear.
This was a great example of the truth that we are all driven by the thought, feeling and belief patterns of our subconscious mind. And, changing those patterns usually brooks resistance.
Fortunately, I was ready for the resistance, and I recognized the pattern for what it was. And, towards the end of the week, I remembered a reassuring scripture:
“Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see thesalvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed.” Doctrine and Covenants 123:17
I took this as a love note from a loving Heavenly Father. We only need do that which is within our power. As we cheerfully do so, His grace covers any gaps and assures ultimate success. And my fears abated, and my faith returned.
I further learned by this lesson a great truth about network marketing. Network marketing is the same. We cheerfully do all that lies in our power, working a proven, simple system, and then we can watch the system deliver, over time, the results to which we have committed. In other words, it’s not about doing everything, at least not all at once and not necessarily all at first. We do our part, the system does its part and the Lord does His part.by
