Post MKMMA 2016/17: Who Me? Refusing the Call to the Hero’s Journey!?!?

Nah…I just do it in my own way.

I am grateful and celebrate each day!  As I continue on my life long journey in life and my MasterKey MasterMind Alliance, at times, I redirect the path I take on this journey to achieve the accomplishment of my Definite Major Purpose.  

Today, I laugh with the World is my slightly modified version of Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World The Scroll Marked IV.  I am fortunate that I have been laughing with the world and myself my whole life.  Our Creator naturally put that life skill in me since I was a child.  I am so thankful for that as I had the gift of much life experience young so it kept my mind focused on the important things in life.

Mark J once posted the below pic with “Learn to dance with the chaos!”

I love that as it is true to life.  I live an amazingly content life with an abundance of happiness.  However, no one gets to control the weather and there are times when chaos enters everyone’s life.  I am in the process of modifying my DMP a bit.  I also need to re-write my futuristic press release to match it.

Those of you who follow my social media may have caught from my Facebook a couple of times last summer that I challenge the State of Illinois.  It is still sad to me that they transfer the child support funds that my ex-spouse has paid on time and is owed for my son’s well-being and care late.  When I am fortunate, it is a day late and has run up to a week late.  This is a significant challenge as I lead a life of what I like to refer to of affluenza.  What does that mean?  I may not be living lifestyles of the rich & famous, but we live in a comfortable apartment in a reasonable neighborhood, and we choose to send our son to private school.  We choose to do this as I was brought up in a family where I was taught that you provide your child with “the best education that you can afford”.  Sure, I could send him to public school, but will my son receive his Spanish class, will he be taught special classes like engineering or the money saving kids club?  Will he have to service his community to graduate?  I believe in all of these things and my ex-spouse supports it as well.  Therefore, I have this bill coming out and I choose to spend money on the best swimming lessons I could find at Foss Swim School.

The below is a link to a video I took of my son swimming over two years ago.  Now, he is mini-Michael Phelps.  This is the same child who the first few lessons was scared to put his face in the water.  My child is like me with some Sensory Issues and can be high energy and fun, and the teachers there work amazingly with him:-)

I do these things as I believe in cost vs value and the value of sending my Golden son to these Golden schools is priceless.  However, because I don’t live “poor” when I have called the customer service number that handles this area of the State of Illinois, I was told that it is paid out as they are able.  I researched around with single parent friends and found the ones who qualify for government assistance still tend to get paid a day or so late.  I can be paid up to a week late.  I had a choice to make.  I could choose to spend my time fighting this which we all know that government issues are not easy.  I could choose to whine, moan, and complain and continue to watch my bank account suffer the consequences.  I could choose to change my son to public school and no longer give him the swim lessons or I could add additional work into my schedule.  I chose to add additional work into my schedule.


It has been an amazing experience.  Although adding the additional time working in another area as to not sacrifice my bank account in the short term might not seem like it would fit my Dharma (another word for DMP), it has introduced me to incredible people, continues to expand my network, and has brought me even more supporters in my life.  The most important aspect, I have the peace of mind of not having a concern of when my son’s payment is going to hit as no matter what school, swimming, and all of our other expenses are deducted out of my account on time.  Should you relate to the above issue, please reach out to me as I can help not only in the short term, but in the long term as well.


This has been a great period as I step closer and closer into achieving my current Dharma and see the next level around the corner.  I recently had the fabulous experience as a network marketing professional to share the #WorldsLaziestNetworker’s #RecruitingAndDuplicatingMasterySummit.  Although the #FreeTickets are gone and the free duration has expired, you may go to if you’d like to be added to the waitlist.  I share this as I only share information in which I hold a strong belief.  It also has allowed me to bring in a little extra cushion for myself and my son as some people who have the life-long dedication like I do to their business careers chose to spend $67 to have a lifetime of access.  I did not get rich sharing this which was never the point.  I am happy that I was able to enrich some lives, help others,  and learn a new life skill of being an affiliate marketer.  There were 24 Multi-Million Dollar earning presenters.   I am learning so much from them and continue to learn everyday.  I noticed that I was even in the top 10% of affiliates with it being my very first experience passing up some of the presenters.  I do not state this to brag.  I state this as it allows me to share that I have learned a wealth of information.  In my life of wealth, that I not only have physical health, family health, relationship health, but I am also increasing my financial health daily.  LIBERTY, HERE I COME!

I can’t wait to share my successes in True Health!!!


I promise to live my definite major purpose everyday which provides me with my personal pivotal needs of Liberty & True Health.

I always keep my promises!  Golden Cathy Bea Hallihan


MKMMA 2016/17-Week 17: A Helper Learns Wealth & Lives a Golden Lifestyle

I’m grateful and celebrate each day!  I expected to get out this blog a day or two ago, but I am technologically improving each day.  I ran into a challenge that required me to reset my lap top.  I’m thrilled that talking it through with a helper in information technology allowed me to learn and fix my lap top myself.  Thanks Ken!




This has been a very interesting week.  I’m so in the flow of abundance.  I have turned down some business partnerships that are not in 100% harmony with my definite major purpose.  I am launching my wealth and life coaching business and what makes me unique is I also incorporate your health through neuroscience, nutrition, and exercise.  I’m negotiating out a potential facility to offer a program for families that will also benefit a non-for-profit that is close to my heart.  Finally, I have made a verbal agreement with the Marvelous Mark Januszewski to have a joint partnership in a health and wellness endeavor.  We are starting defining our purpose and plan after the launch of Go 90 Grow which is his network marketing skills training including an active “Think And Grow Rich” practice of which I am an affiliate and grateful lifetime member.  I maintain my other business endeavors, and of course, my priority remains to be a leader for myself, my son, and society.  There is not a more important job than my connection with myself and being a Golden Mom to my son.


As a helper and an outside observer to the world at large, it appears that I am not the only helper who was less than stellar at living up to my financial and leadership potential.  What I learned from my own journey (and I find that which many helpers relate) is that we are so focused on helping others and as many causes as we can that we lose the vision and execution of helping ourselves.  This is evidenced with our own personal wealth and sometimes even our health.  We unintentionally do not put our maximum effort into the leadership role in which we so effectively can thrive as we are too distracted with our addiction to being a helper.  For myself and many others I know, the subject of wealth and money are taboo.  We feel (yes, we are those feelings people and self-righteous!) as if we are not servicing when being an unstoppable force in creating wealth.  In fact, my Bodacious Blanca also known as my intellectual side states the facts.  The fact is the more wealthy that I make myself; the more help that I can provide to others and the causes that I choose to service.

MKMMA 2016/17 Week 16: Persistence & Industrious Are Critical Virtues

I’m grateful and celebrate each day!  My apologies for being off the blogging radar. I have not fallen off the program and am in the perfect spot for where I should be right now.  I find that once you trigger how the laws of attraction works for you; it goes to my blog of Help!  I’m Being Attacked by the World of Abundance.

To give you an anology of the above, it’s like I’m in a game of dodgeball with 50 great balls being thrown at me at the same time.  However, I have only two hands to catch.  Therefore, I must decide which balls are the critical ones to catch.

Any time that you are pursuing your dreams, you will have people with less than love for you who many like to refer to as “Haters”.  I know these people question when they see me less visible as their negative attitude tells them something is wrong.  My real friends and supporters know that means that I am busy being industrious or taking some time in silence to process a major life choice to lead me to my greatest success.  I hate to tell the people with less than 100% love for me, but the saying, “there is a thin line between love and hate is true!”  In fact, your haters love you, but are suffering from the deadly sin of envy.  Instead of supporting you and seeing you as an inspiration or motivation for him or her to pursue his or her own dreams, they throw you a dodge ball filled with garbage.  Don’t catch that one!  If it hits you, take a shower and continue to move forward!

Want the great news!  My DMP manifests much more quickly than I can keep up with you or even try to explain to you.  However, those of you struggling with these virtues, remember to have your mentor and helpers along the way.  “Nobody makes it without a Mastermind!”  Never quit; keep persisting forward!!!  Please watch the below video to sum it all up.

Week 4: MKMMA 2016/17-Giving Kindness

I give kindness as much as possible in my life.  When I see that I can do better, I take accountability.  I am moving slower with my blogs this year.  This week, I need to share the kindness with myself to get my week 5 blog out as well.


The funny thing as we talk about giving is I have had many people ask me over the last two weeks if I am always this kind.  I say thank you, and my goal is always to lead with kindness and love.  You find a domino effect occur from this.  This is the whole law of giving.  In essence, what you give out will come back to you.  Many times, it comes back greater if you keep your eyes and ears open.

What are you giving to the world today?  We each have something.  I give kindness, love, and encouragement as much as possible.  I give gratitude and acknowledgement.  I give regardless of whether or not it comes back as that is a part of love.

I am grateful and celebrate each day.

I promise to live and give to my definite major purpose which provides me with my personal pivotal needs of liberty & true health.

I always keep my promises.  Cathy

Week 3: MKMMA 2016/17-Continuing to Fine Tune

Watching the week 3 webinar sat with me in a few ways.  The first is as Davene and Mark went over DMPs, I found that Liberty does seem to give me both time and financial freedom which is from where my brain was initially coming.  It sits better with me when I read liberty over autonomy and gives me a huge feeling of joy so I have chosen to keep liberty.  It was great to try on autonomy.  I do require that as well, and all of the personal pivotal needs are met when we focus on our two primary needs.  True health always sits with me.  If you don’t have your health, what will anything else do for you?

I also am refining my own DMP.  I remember going through DMPs last year.  I tuned in to being even more detailed.  Words and specificity are so important to train my brain to go after what I desire.  Therefore, I have been able to improve it further.


The other link that I thought about with our changing weather and fall settling in is how appropriate it is to be reading Scroll 1 in Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World.  “Today I begin a new life.  Today I shed my old skin…”  Today, outside my place leaves are changing colors and they are shedding as I am changing to create a better version of myself with the many other members of the MasterKey Mastermind Alliance.  What a beautiful and harmonious Universe!

I promise to live my definite major purpose which provides my personal pivotal needs of liberty and true health.

I always keep my promises.  Cathy

I am grateful and celebrate today and everyday!


Week 2: MKMMA 2016/2017 Personal Pivotal Needs

Okay, so I am behind in my blogging which is not part of the good habits.  However, I do forgive myself.  Part of my journey last year was definitely realizing that driving to perfection is wonderful, but we are perfectly evolving human beings doing more to be a better version of ourselves.  It is that time of year with large weather changes in Chicago throughout the day.  For me, that seems to be the hard time for allergies in the early fall especially as well as late spring.  Although my duration of sleep has been good, I was not waking up well rested.  Is it possible to push past that…yes.  However, that continues a viscous cycle of a lack of care.  With health and wellness being one of my endeavors, I need to make sure that I am taking care of my own as one of my personal pivotal needs is true health.


Going through this program a second time had me lean in more to autonomy versus liberty.  Last year, I was listening to that cast in the airport and remember being on the border of liberty and recognition for creative expression.  The good news is no matter which personal pivotal needs you choose, you will find that you indeed get them all after accomplishing your chosen two.  What I noticed this year is liberty, the financial freedom for which most people desire versus autonomy being the ability to come and go as you please.  Autonomy is more important to me.  I can not buy back time with my son to handle the responsibilities with him.  Even some day, when he is an adult, I would still rather have freedom with my schedule over a little more money.  The good news is that these needs come as a package deal.

I gratefully realized that I really have my needs met.  Now it is a matter of manifesting them in a great abundance.

I am grateful and celebrate life everyday!

Week 1: MKMMA 2016/17 Continuing to Create Good Habits

I am happy to be back doing my second round in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance.  I have both new friends and continuing friends on this journey with me.  I believe in ongoing journeys as if you want to maintain life changes and continually improve, it makes sense to keep and improve your daily practices.

I always love the story of the Golden Buddha as the analogy reigns true.  My little one is just a young second grader, but he comes home with interesting statements and questions at times already.  I work with him on objective facts versus subjective opinions and allow him to see that anything can be improved with practice.  It is critical that I lead that example for myself and for him as I am his role model.

If you have not read my blog before, I have attached last year’s week 1 which includes the Golden Buddha.


This year, I am fine tuning my DMP.  Continued progress and improvement are critical to be my best, most Golden self.  Another key, no pun intended, is right there in scroll 1.  “If I must be a slave to habit, let me be a slave to good habits.”  I continue to develop good habits to service my purpose.  When we change our world within, which is our thoughts, and follow that with action, our world without (outside world) matches.

I am grateful and celebrate life everyday!
