The Master Key Mastermind Alliance Dreams Aloud – Do you? (Week 5)
When did saying our wishes out loud become a bad thing?
Probably, right around the time we started to talk at our birthday parties. Our parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles would say, “Blow out your candles!! Make a wish!” Sure, it took a few more birthday parties to understand what a wish was, but once we got the hang of it, we wanted to wish all the time. Our dreams and wishes excited us!!! We wanted to shout from the roof tops!!! While the room filled with smoke, smiles spread across our faces just as our lips parted to share these amazing ideas with our beloved family members. Then came the inevitable, “SSSSHHHHHH!!!!! Wait, don’t tell us your wish!!! If you do, then it will never come true!!!” Our smile would fade, a look of confusion would furrow our brow, and then came the explanation – “Well, see. You want your dream to come true, right? So, if you tell us, it won’t come true. Understand? You have to keep it close to your heart, tell no one, and then it will come true. Won’t that be great?! So, don’t tell anyone, okay? Good.”
Mum becomes the word…
Just when you thought you had it all figured out, your cousins and friends pounce on you all covered in cake crumbs and beg you, “What did you wish for? For my birthday, I wished for a super duper amazing toy, and I never got it. I never told anyone, and it didn’t come true. Come on, you can tell me. I won’t tell! Sooooo, what did you wish for?”
What do you mean it didn’t come true? So, we share our birthday wish in a sheepish whisper. In turn, maybe we get nods of approval or occasionally we are tormented for our silly choices. Either way, they were our cherished dreams shared with enthusiasm figuring they would someday come true. As we grow older, we find if someone had simply overheard us they may have been able to go to the store. By keeping mum, we blew out our candles, shielded our dreams, and never received the assistance, love, and support to make our birthday wishes come true. So, was it all worth it? Was that the right advice or encouragement we needed in our youthful exuberance?
Shout it from the roof tops!!!!
My head is full of Napoleon Hill of Think and Grow Rich, Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World, and Charles Haanel’s book The Master Key System. Everything tells me to SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!!! The more we keep quiet and to ourselves, the less time our subconscious ever gets to manifest our desires into reality. There’s an old saying that we only use 10% of our brains. What if that’s because our subconscious rules the other 90%? By talking aloud and speaking with enthusiasm, we move our wishes into an area of our mind where dreams really do come true. Wouldn’t that be worth it?
Putting it Out There…WITH ENTHUSIASM!!!!
Our Master Key Mastermind Alliance has been asked to dream aloud through press releases. (Go ahead and check out mine!!) The ‘guide’ for our adventure, Mark J, kindly went first, but we’ve been asked to take some of our inner most desires and make them public for all to see, read, comment on, and otherwise put it out into cyberspace with enthusiasm!!!! The days of keeping mum are over. Through love, support, guidance, humility, encouragement, and lots of personal courage, we can achieve everything we wished for on our birthday every year for the rest of our lives. What do you want? Say it out loud! Scream it from the rooftops!! Watch it come true in unexpected ways as you share with others!!!
