Week 16 – My Master Key Experience

The Master Key Mastermind Alliance, or as we call it, ‘The Master Key Experience’ is based on and is a study of Charles Haanel’s work ‘The Master Key System.’ But that is not all of it, that is more a framework not the end all be all of the program. It would be impossible to describe this in a paragraph or two so I will share my experience to this point ‘My Master Key Experience.’

Our life is our thoughtsThe outer world is a perfect mirror of our inner world. The circumstances of our life and our situations all come from how we think. Our thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, biases, prejudices, self-talk. I can’t (why?) I’m not good enough (who says?) I’m not big enough, old enough, young enough, skinny enough, fat enough,….//Fill in the blank//  you get the idea.  We have created beliefs from outside input and it is from these beliefs that we act and react.

An immersion into introspection and self discovery.  Painful at times exhilarating at others, insight and epiphanies abound. Time consuming and some times just plain a pain in the…,  Well, I knew this was going to be different, a true experiential happening, not a lecture series to feel like I accomplished and check off my to do list. Yes, self actualization course for the year , Check! No this has been hard work lots of forward progress, back sliding, regrets, rethinking, re-framing, and thinking. Really thinking!

This is not a do the exercise and be done with it class; No, this is grow-learn-tear down-build then grow some more. I am the caterpillar becoming the butterfly over and over again. As I strive to remove the negative and the concrete that has been layered over me for 50 years. Striving to become the once and future golden child inside.

26 weeks seemed like a long time to dedicate to this project but here I am 17 weeks later and I am in awe of the growth and insights I have found already. But I am also now more aware than ever before of what I do not know and how much more there is  to learn and explore. At the end I know this is not over. This is like college commencement I will take the tools and use them to continue to learn, develop, explore, and create myself on my own without the structure or classroom environment. Good thing I have a lifetime to get to know me!

Teacher my head is full may I be excused!

The journey

Master Key Experience

WEEK 8 – MKMMA experience continues to grow in Focus

I Think Therefore I am! – Descartes

I once heard someone say “You are where you are, living the life and experience you deserve” I got incensed, He went on to tell me “Your circumstances are your own fault” now I was angry!  Maybe you are having negative feelings reading this and like me at the time thinking how can you say that? I did not choose to live like this! It was someone or something else’s fault.  But is it?

“We become what we think about” – Earl Nightingale

The Master Key part 8 – The lesson really knocks the wind out of excuses of thought. “If your thought is constructive and harmonious, the result will be good.”  and this one is killer,

“Any line of thought persisted in cannot fail to produce its result in the CHARACTER, HEALTH, and CIRCUMSTANCES of the individual”  

WOW! I am where I deserve to be or I am where I created to be, by my own thoughts. How? If I don’t like where I am then how do I change this?

IMAGINATION! 

Listen to what you say to yourself over and over, remember a thought repeated and with emotion becomes a belief, and you see that you are imagining a situation in your minds eye or reinforcing an image in your minds eye.

example: This always happens to me! when ever xxxxx then I get xxxxx OR Why do I always lose on these things OR I can’t win!

Do any of those thoughts sound familiar? Eh? Well stop it!

Imagination is the constructive form of thought – IE it creates things!

“You will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions, environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual, characteristic, PREDOMINANT mental attitude.” #18 Master Key System

Watch what you think and how you Imagine your life. Imagination and repetition is the key. “We can substitute habits of constructive thinking for those which have produced undesirable effects!” #3,4

To have a better outcome then use your imagination and substitute constructive thoughts for destructive thoughts. You are cultivating a mental attitude which will be conducive to constructive thought habit. Be aware of how you talk to yourself then stop it and change the narrative!

Line #24 “Successful men and women make it their business to hold ideals of the conditions which they wish to realize.” “Thoughts are the materials with which they build, and imagination is their mental workshop.” 

Imagine a better you, Imagine a better world, create your own circumstances and life! This is the train I am thinking in terms of IDEALS and using my imagination through relaxed reflection and projection and creating an AWESOME life and experience!

Now I understand and I agree, I am where I am because I created it in my own thoughts! And LOVE IT!

Enjoy your life! (it could be the only one we get!)
