My Master Key Experience


Week 3 MKMMA – Ups and Downs


I think someone had mentioned that progression through the MKMMA course would be like a roller coaster ride, a lot of ups and downs. This Monday was one of my biggest ‘downs’. I felt the weight of everything pushing me down. How is it that I should struggle with something that potentially changes my life for the better, for myself and everyone else around me? Why does my old Blueprint wish me to THINK that I can’t do this? Then I refocus, organize, continue to dig in and things start to get better again. I plan my week (still work in progress), time with my maker, giving thanks, time with family, and time for this course. The Law of Compensation works in wondrous ways.

Then at work on Tuesday night a… THOUGHT… came to me: When was the last time I got on a roller coaster ride, anticipating on the way up, that on the way down I would be in so much grief, worry, doubt, fear? OK, maybe a little bit of fear and some thoughts of ‘why did I decide to do this?’… but the last time I was on a roller coaster ride, and it was a pretty big one, when I descended down the first monster hill, you couldn’t wipe the smile off my face! It was such a rush, I was in awe the whole time, enjoying the thrill and excitement of every single up and down, twist and turn.

Why should I look at my journey through this course, my life, any differently? I choose to enjoy this incredible ride called life.

Then I looked back through the Master Keys and there it was in the intro to Master Key Part Three, paragraph two: “Eliminate therefore any possible tendency to complain of conditions as they have been, or as they are, because it rests with you to change them and make them what you would like them to be.”

Change comes from a choice. Think about it.

I would like to end this weeks blog with another quote, this time from Napoleon Hill: “… it’s the excitement and adventure that make it all worthwhile. If you never make the attempt you may never know the depths of despair, but neither will you experience the exhilaration of success.”
