One year ago I started on a journey. Without leaving home. (Except for that trip to Kauai, but more on that later.) I am talking about a journey of self discovery. And it’s called the Master Key Experience. Or you could call it the Hero’s Journey, but for that also – more later.
I came across this program sort of by accident. Or perhaps it found me. I have been a student of Network Marketing for some time, and a while back I came across the teachings of Mark J, “The World’s Laziest Networker.” He has great trainings and a very down-to-earth philosophy. It was because I am on his mailing list that I learned about another side to Mark J. I asked for more information. Got put on a list and received the 7-day Mental Diet (which I ignored at that time). Then I started to watch the information videos for the Master Key Experience. It blew me away – this is what I needed and wanted. I had been thinking of getting a personal coach, but nothing had felt right, so far. Well, this felt right! Part of the deal is a guide, kind of like a coach, who gives support and, well, guidance.
And even better – the entry is by scholarship – no upfront fees! Well, one dollar. I knew there was an expectation of paying something at some point (there always is – in this case there is a choice, we can ‘pay it forward’ for the next session). So I figured: sounds good, I have nothing to lose (a dollar), and if I am finding value, I am more than happy to pay when the time comes. So I put in my application.
That was one year ago. Have I changed? I’m pretty sure I don’t look any different. And in lots of ways I don’t feel different either. But in many ways I do. I don’t know if anyone else would say I have changed. I am still my optimistic, cheerful, smiling self. But I do feel a new confidence and belief. I have a much clearer vision of my future, and I’m now taking the actions I need to take, in order for that vision to come true.
A year ago I felt stuck. Stuck in a rut, stuck in my business, stuck in my body. You can read my first post about how stuck I felt here. I wouldn’t say the journey has been easy – it is work to make lasting change, and it doesn’t happen overnight. But now I am filled with this knowing, that everything is working out as it should.
It starts with the formation of good habits, which include setting aside time to study and reflect. It pushes you to be the master of your mind and therefore your life. Eventually I did conquer the 7-Day Mental Diet, and that freed me to stay positive in environments of negativity.
I have learned much, but still have much to learn. This year, my plan is to follow along with the course again (I am now a Lifetime Member). I will surely have a different perspective and will learn and apply more. This is a lifetime process, after all.
Maybe in a year, or two, I will become a guide and help others the way Jorge (my guide) helped me.
Will I go back to Kauai? I hope so, but probably not next year. Kauai was amazing. It was a retreat to follow up, and expand on the teachings of the 6 months plus. I met amazing people, some attending multiple years. I can understand what draws them, it’s not just the beautiful tropical paradise (though that is nice as well). It’s the chance to spend time with like-minded people in the pursuit of a worthwhile goal – to improve ourselves and by extension the world. To create a tribe of self-directed thinkers!
My friend Julie, who first taught me about CANI, has a vision of the consciousness of the world raising. And, as my new friend Davene says, “a rising tide lifts all ships.”

This will be active for a limited time only – once the course registration closes, you will have to wait until next year!
