Awesome! Week two in MKMMA has been so inspiring for me. I am all in for the 26 weeks for 4th time. I just finished a very tough mental and physical challenge called 75 Hard.. and it was Hard on the body and the mind. The key was I was totally committed when I started. I told my friends, my family, and most importantly myself that would complete the program exactly as it was laid out. Cool part… I did it. I set an intention and focused all my energy on the end result. It was completed in my mind before I every started.

MKMMA 2022 – 26 weeks for me is already done.. I have my end in mind and I know the outcome because I have already set it in the world within. It is a done deal as I already see myself talking with my guide at the end of week 26th about how great it is to have finished the first part of this journey together.

So this week, we had a very cool assignment at the end of Part II…

Now be perfectly still as before, but inhibit all thought; this will give you control over all thoughts of care, worry and fear, and will enable you to entertain only the kind of thoughts you desire. Continue this exercise until you gain complete mastery.

Master Key System, Charles Haanel

Wow… that’s a tall order. I kind of chuckled as I thought about this, How many times do ask someone; especially your wife or a child, “What are you thinking about?” and the response is nothing.

Have you ever tried to think about nothing. Let me tell you it’s a lot harder than you might think.

Here’s how it usually goes when I start this exercise. I close my eyes and set my intention to think about nothing. Here we go.

• 5 seconds later. I need to make 20 calls today. Oh… I need to clear my mind… think of nothing.
• 10 seconds later. My DMP is great. so, looking forward to the new life. Oh… I need to clear my mind… think of nothing.
• 20 seconds later. I wish I did not have to go to the cardiologist . Oh… I need to clear my mind.. think of nothing.
• 15 seconds later. Dawgs play at 3:30 Saturday afternoon. Love afternoon games. Oh… I need to clear my mind… think of nothing.
• 10 seconds later. Need to do OATS tomorrow & Schedule time with Erin. Oh… I need to clear my mind… think of nothing.

… And so it goes through my 15 minute sit. I think about nothing AND I think about everything.

So why is it I am trying to think about nothing? It is a vital exercise in learning to control my thoughts. To learn to notice what thoughts I am letting into my internal world. To see which thoughts I am adding emotion to. To allow my conscious mind to become the gatekeeper of my subconscious mind, my inner world.

The more I control my thoughts, the more I control the inner world and soon my perfect inner world will become my perfect outer world.

I so look forward to this exercise each morning; it is just like lifting weights. The more I practice, the stronger I get.

Have a blessed week and find time to think about NOTHING.

  • This is great insight and very helpful to me. Thank you for sharing in such a vulnerable way.

  • that is very cool completing 75 Hard.
    I am looking forward to reading your Week 26 post about talking with your guide 🙂
    thanks for sharing about your experience with this week’s exercise 🙂

  • I just loved reading about your experience with the sit, Scott! I’m sure many can relate to that (at least I do, and it made me smile).

  • Beautiful blog on the “Sit” and about thinking about “Nothing.” Interesting isn’t it? I love this week 2 exercise because of that. I challenge myself to clear out all thoughts and it is getting better and better. Thinking of “nothing” at all is Fun and a great experience. Thanks for sharing your experiences. Keep up the great work.

  • Hi Scott, great blog! Wow, 4 times through MKMMA! and yet, still learning. This is a testimonial of the need we have for good habits…love your second x second account of the sit. it is awesome to sit and experiment with the work…thank you for sharing. And, by the way, not familiar with the program you took and completed with 75 Hard, but congratulations for your effort and completion.

  • Great observation Scott! My mind traditionally is always going a mile a minute, so this week’s sitting exercise will be especially challenging for me as well.

  • Fantastic post, Scott! Thanks for sharing. I had the same experience, but like you said it would get easier with time. Like today, I refused to look at the TV’s at my gym when I worked out because it was mostly negative conditioning like shooting and crime reporting. Controlling the assaults from without is as difficult as controlling the thoughts from within.

  • Great read Scott thanks for sharing nothing. 😀I am looking forward to reading more from you.

  • Hi Scott, I loved the comparison between lifting weights and controlling your mind. It is true “The more I practice, the stronger I get.”

  • Wow, Scott, a minute-by-minute play. LOVE IT! And whoever knew that nothing would mean so very much! Great blog post! Thanks for sharing!

  • You get it, Scott. Controlling your body is the first step toward controlling your thoughts.
