Week 24: The Master Key Experience
Week 24 is the “official” end of the Master Key Experience.
Made it! Deep breath. Smile. It’s hard to put into words the impact the Master Key Experience has had on me. One of there slogans is #TheresNothingLikeIt and I’d have to agree. It was unlike any of the personal development courses I’ve taken.
It also was one of the most challenging courses I’ve ever done. And that’s saying a lot considering every year for the last 20+ years my wife Suzanne and I take at least one personal growth course to improve ourselves.
Looking back, what made it so unique and challenging is that it’s designed to go beyond book learning and motivational talk to actively create positive change in your life!
The challenges arose because I wasn’t letting go of my old blueprint — the one that kept me in a nice, safe comfortable box.(If you read along here from week to week, you can see how I (i.e. MY EGO) fought against this course most of the time). I still struggle, but now I have the awareness, understanding and tools to overcome the struggle.
If I had to boil down the Master Key Experience to something I could put on a T-Shirt I’d say Transformation Happens Here.
The Master Key Experience is all about transforming your life.
Now transformation is a pretty big word with even bigger implications, so I don’t use the word lightly. The Master Key Experience begins by helping you create a new blueprint for your life. Then it helps you to transform your thinking and how to use your emotions to transform the belief about yourself. With a change in belief comes changes in behaviors to allow you to live that new blueprint.
The 24 weeks of the Master Key Experience mirrors the 24 week Master Key System mail order course create by Charles F. Haanel a businessman and philosopher back in the early 1900’s. (He also turned it into a book a few years later). One of each week’s assignments is to read a chapter from the Haanel course and contemplate its teaching.
A little history about The Master Key System…
The Master Key Experience is built on the foundation of the Master Key System – a 24 week mail order course create by Charles Haanel a businessman and philosopher back in the early 1900’s. (He also turned it into a book a few years later). The Master Key System has been cited as heavily influencing Napoleon Hill (author of the famous Think and Grow Rich), Rhonda Bryne, author of The Secret (movie and book) and even Bill Gates!
Charles F. Haanel is part of a long line of New Thought thinkers and writers, starting with Ralph Waldo Emerson, and continuing through famous leaders like Dale Carnegie, Emmet Fox, Ernest Holmes, Wallace Wattles W. Clement Stone and more currently with people like the late great Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Michael Beckwith and Gary Zukav to name just a few.
The creator of this Master Key Experience course, Mark Januszewski was personally mentored by W. Clement Stone, a famous businessman in his own right who partnered with Napoleon Hill to write the famous book Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude. So there’s a direct lineage here from Haanel to Januszewski.
But I digress…
The Master Key Experience goes beyond the Master Key System book/course by utilizing the latest science on what is know about the brain and learning. It utilizes a variety of exercises and experiences to help you change your thinking about yourself and what’s possible for you.
In doing so it creates a proper mental environment to help become inspired and focused on your blueprint — what really want to manifest in the next chapter of my life.
Once the new blueprint is developed, everything is intricately and purposefully designed to help create the foundation for a positive mental attitude to step into a new blueprint for the life one wants to live.
Bottom line, you can not manifest positive change in your life at the level of your current thinking.
Now 24 weeks later I’m living out that blueprint with the launch of Our Bold Future, the further development of some pet projects. I’ve also applied to become a Certified Guide in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance.
Ah yes the guides, I haven’t mentioned them yet.
Napoleon Hill once said, “no one succeeds without a Mastermind. This idea shook up my usual go-it-alone Desperado mentality. A mentality I believe is shared by many, particularly here in the United States.
The official title of the Master Key Experience course is the Master Key Master Mind Alliance (i.e. MKMMA) Early on, each participant is assigned a Certified Guide to help them through the process. My guide was especially helpful in assisting me in the development of my blueprint — keeping me focused by pointing out areas that weren’t clear or were incongruent with what I stated thatI wanted.
I believe the addition a personal guide and the opportunity to Mastermind with other participants of the course are two of the key things that transform this from just another self-development course to a unique and ultimately life-changing experience.
Which is why I’m so excited about my decision to become a Certified Guide for the Master Key Experience!
My overall Mission in Life is to create a world of hope and joy, passion and prosperity by empowering myself and others to live our dreams of a better life. The decision to become a Certified Guide was an easy one because it’s a vehicle to allow me to live my Mission in a very direct way.
Therefore I will be continuing my journey on this blog as well as delivering additional ideas, thoughts and actions to help you unlock the Master Key to Freedom and live the life you want to live going forward.
NOTE: Due to a limited number of guides, there are a limited number of spaces for the next MKMMA. And since it is only offered once a year (starts in late Sept/early October) I encourage you to sign up on this website to get on the waiting list. You can do so here.
In the meantime, as part of signing up to get on the notification list, I’ll email you a free copy of the 7 Day Mental Diet. This classic report by Emmet Fox is designed to help you develop a stronger positive mental attitude. Developing a Positive Mental Attitude is a key component in the formula for success to achieve anything you aspire to manifest.
