Week 23 Master Key Experience: Money

This week’s Haanel talks about the money consciousness and how it permeates everything that we do. Money has really seemed to pop up a lot this week as an issue to deal with.

I have put myself in a position that I need to perform in my business to produce income by paying for the hotel and flight to Las Vegas for our big International convention in May. It seems that since I have done that, the time available to focus on my business has diminished and been overcome by work events. I recognize that this must be my old blueprint of lack rearing its head again with the old pattern of poverty consciousness.

The win is that I now recognize this poverty consciousness for what it is, and now have a plan to move forward with MORE enthusiasm and more focus on just the tasks that are productive! Not managing time, but managing ME!

Week 22 Master Key Experience: Emotions!

So here it is! This week has been hyped for a while telling us that we will be able to take our negative emotions and empower us with good! WHAT? How is THAT possible?

Like everything else that we have learned in MKE, you need to learn to trust the process. And the team hit on ALL of the big ones! Fear, Anger, Guilt, even Hurt Feelings, but the biggest one for me is Unworthiness. Hard to believe if you look at my life. Successfully raised three successful kids, retired after 28 years as a Lieutenant Colonel, won my company’s Fitness Challenge not once, but twice! So far I am the only one to do that! And yet it is easier to focus on the fact that I am not making enough money from the business to pay for all of my products (I can’t help it if I LOVE our products!), let alone the company conference coming up in May.

So this week was very timely for me as I put myself in a situation where I HAVE to perform! So what happened next? Out of the blue, the other gentleman who was named Co-Champion with me on the last Challenge reached out on a text message and said, “Dude, you got this fitness thing DOWN! But now we need to focus on growing your business!” And I am not even in his downline! Maybe this Law of Attraction thing works!

So my new project is learning to use Fear and Unworthiness to drive my business to the levels of success that I desire! And then my upline reached out today saying that they want to help grow my business as well. WOO HOO! Let’s put into practice what we have learned and TRUST the process! Taken me a while to GET that, but it is starting to make sense now. Plus, not only do I have Mastermind partner now, I have TWO! And so it continues!

Week 21 Master Key Experience: Starting to get “FOCUS”!

Oe of the challenges that I have had in recent years is a phenomenon called “monkey mind”. It basically means that your mind is going all over the place and it can be difficult to focus on tasks for any period of time. Adding onto that is society and self-help gurus telling you that multi-tasking is the ONLY way to get all of the things accomplished during the day.

Fortunately, last week Mark was able to punch me in the mouth and get my attention long enough to convince me that multi-tasking is NOT the only way to accomplish my tasks! In fact, if I focus on ONE task at a time and complete, I will actually have MORE time to accomplish the other tasks to the standard I have set for myself!

Since I stopped multi-tasking and focusing on completing one task at a time, I have really felt my overall focus increase and the monkey mind has become much quieter! I used to have to really concentrate to get through the Master Key readings (or any reading for that matter) and now I feel I am able to better take in the information that is presented to me AND to understand it! I wont lie that there have been many passages in the Master Key that have me feeling like I am reading Old English and it just has not clicked. I am going back and reading some of the past lessons and understanding more! SWEET!

I have always considered myself to be a lifelong learner, but the Master Key Experience has taught me how to be a much more effective learner!

Week 20 Master Key Experience: The small epiphany that makes a HUGE impact!

There was so much great info on this week’s webinar! I love how we go back and review previous material as it ALWAYS sheds light on it in a way that I did not see. But the part that really impacted me this week was Mark pointing out that there is no such thing as multi-tasking!

While I have heard that before, for some reason it just really stuck with me this time. I realized that I have been attempting to multi-task at work and saw that I was not getting tasks accomplished in a timely manner and to the quality that I wanted. Once I heard that from Mark, I focused on the most important tasks and completed them quicker and to the level of quality that satisfied me. I am still working on letting go of the less-important tasks, but I believe in my heart that with this focusing on one task at a time that there will soon be an abundance of time to complete those other tasks! This made my week so much more fulfilling! Thank you Mark!

Week 19 Master Key Experience: Old Blueprint not dead yet!

I found myself doing a lot of traveling for work the past couple of weeks, working very long days, all while being in the middle of a fitness Challenge and coaching a team that ranged from the East Coast to Afghanistan. And yet I had developed the habit of my reading three times a day. Okay, I admit it is usually only twice a day, but those times are sacred. Flashing through my cards is becoming one of my favorite habits and when I don’t do it, I feel a piece is missing. I always get a smile on my face when I read certain cards such as “my granddaughter thinks I am smart”, or I feel a sense of pride when I read the card that says “I was a Fitness Champion…TWICE!”

And yet some days it was a struggle to keep the positive thoughts always in the front of my mind, particularly when it related to one particular person! The best part about that seemingly negative issue is that I was cognizant and aware of those negative thoughts! PROGRESS! It is the little victories over time that will eventually lead to winning the war and achieving the life that I have dreamed of! And while I have learned more patience as I have gotten older, I am beginning to have less patience with achieving my goals which helps me to DO IT NOW and pushes me to make progress on a daily basis! Loving the process!

Week 18 Master Key Experience: The Magic Card

It took me FOREVER to get caught up on Week 18 as I have been traveling for work and working long hours. Bad excuses, but that is my story and I am sticking to it!

The big takeaway for me was the addition of a single card, or I should say 10 of them, to my already growing decks of index cards. This one immediately struck me as having an immediate impact! “What would the person I intend to become do next!” While not going to make a bracelet like “WWJD” did, this one sentence really has me thinking every time that I read it! I take particular care to create a mental picture every time I read it, which is five times per card deck! Excited to see how this simple phrase will impact my future ME!

Week 17 HJ Master Key Experience: Time to start making decisions

This week is the first time that what we are supposed to do has not been very regimented. Some people LOVE that! As a veteran of 28 years in the U.S. Army, I HATE it! What am I going to do? I don’t know which week’s I should look at that is going to give me the most bang for my buck! And the Emerson essay? OMG! It is so LOOOONG and I frankly don’t understand much of what he says anyway.

Yep, that is how I started this week. Then I remembered the 7-day Mental Diet. I recognized how negative these thoughts were and how they were NOT serving me. So I started replacing those thoughts with positive thoughts such as “this will give me an opportunity to review some of the slide notes and see which one I want to dive back into. Also with Emerson, I would read that essay in sections and really ruminate on what he is trying to convey. And you know what? It WORKED!

I was able to review several of the past lessons because I followed directions and printed out the lessons and notes and kept them in a binder that I always pack and carry with me when I am traveling! It has reminded of the importance of some of the exercises that we are doing and some that I have let slip. I have renewed my desire and commitment to doing the right things!

One of the things that I teach in my classes that we deliver around the country is a discussion of Measures of Performance and Measures of Effectiveness. Measures of performance are much easier to measure since they are things like “Did I read the Greatest Salesman chapter today?” Yep! That is easy. The measures of effectiveness are much “squishier” and harder to measure because they measure things like “Am I happier?” Much harder to measure that one! One of the ways to think about that is “Am I doing things right?” (Measures of Performance) and “Am I doing the right things?” (Measures of effectiveness) We cannot expect to gain maximum results if we are not doing the right things…..right! And so I have re-committed to doing ALL of the right things….right!

Week 17 Master Key Experience: Cards, cards, and more cards!

The webinar this week really focused on the benefits that we gain by flashing through our 3×5 cards multiple times throughout the day. And I am seeing the method to the “madness”!

Perhaps the Law of Growth is finally kicking in, orbit has been there the whole time and I am finally recognizing the changes, but the index cards is making sense to me. I have had to re-write a few cards because I keep them in my pants pockets so they are readily available and get trashed getting pulled out! 😳

Played some catch-up this week and that felt AMAZING! I am very competitive and I HATE to be behind! Looking forward to experiencing epiphanies this week!

Week 16 Master Key Experience: Putting the pieces together

Four months! Hard to believe that this much time has passed and I still feel like such a newbie! I have been so faithful with my readings and feel like I have somewhat half-assed my cards, shapes, and colors. But when Haanel talked about how knowledge cannot apply itself, it really struck a chord with me! THAT is why I am feeling like a newbie! I also was reading my DMP and at the bottom it says “I will do ALL of the assignments EXACTLY as I am told. I always keep my promises”.

I did a FB Live for a Fitness Challenge where I talk about how easy it is to break promises to ourselves, but much harder to break promises to other people! Hence the Mastermind. Yes, I can be taught! Looking forward to playing catch up, but really doing the “thing”!

Week 15 Master Key Experience: Knowledge does not apply itself!

This week’s readings really made me think much more in depth about how thoughts bring about creation. But the part that really hit home with me was the 36th paragraph!

During our SIT, we were to dwell on the fact that knowledge does not apply itself. BOOM! Seems obvious, but I was one of those people that bought all kinds of courses and books so I could learn the best way to prospect, or be a better husband, or hit a better racquetball shot. And then I would never finish the course/book and would not put into practice what I DID read!

Taking action is becoming my new mantra. I have heard people talk about Russell Brunson’s books saying that if you just read something that he says, put it into IMMEDIATE action, you will not have to spend thousands of dollars to attend his live events and will have the success you desire!

The same thing is true with my network marketing business. I find that I actually have some success when I am doing the right things that expose my business and drive it forward!

Some of you are probably shaking your head, although probably not in this group. I imagine that most of you are giving me a mental slow clap because yet another on is finally getting it!

Week 14 Master Key Experience: The DO!

I am slowly starting to see where the exercises that we have been doing are actually leading somewhere! It really hit me when Haanel talked about how the athlete can read all kinds of books about physical training but until he actually puts forth the physical effort to implement what he has learned, nothing will happen!

I can see where we have been training our minds in different ways so that we can be in harmony with the Universal Mind in positive ways that will bring about positive results! Not just in the Law of Attraction but in our everyday interactions with those around us. The Law of Dual Thought has had the most profound effect upon me thus far as well as the Law of Growth. Trading positive thoughts for negative thoughts has really been a game-changer for me!

I have always known that I am a child of God, but this week’s reading really helped point out how I can be in harmony with Him and tap into His goodness not only through prayer, but with being in harmony with Him because He made us in His image! And our minds are the radios with which we can communicate with Him. AMAZING!

Week 13 Master Key Experience: New tools!

Week 13 was a shift in how I am thinking about the whole Master Key Experience. There have been many of the exercises that I have been faithful with on a daily basis, and some others, such as the colored shapes, not so much!

Part of that issue is the the wife will not allow the colored shapes to be placed around the house, so I have them at work! I am in the process of updating my DMP so that it evokes more emotion as I really see the benefit FINALLY!

There are times during this process that I feel like I am a slow learner, but then I realize that I am at least a learner! I remind myself that I AM becoming a better person and my thought life is definitely improving!

So excited to continue this journey and become the best person I can become!

Week 12: I AM good!

This week was great! Too often I (and people I associate with) focus TOO much on the negative things or the things that we did not get accomplished, and we miss out on the AWESOME things that we DID accomplish! BOOM! Another epiphany for me!

I am usually pretty good at lifting up the people around me, but I plan on doubling my efforts in that area and focusing on what they ARE accomplishing as I believe that when we focus on what we did get done, we are more focused on getting the other tasks completed!

I did NOT make it the whole 50 minutes with my one line DMP (I was raised Catholic, so confession is good for the soul!), but I am doing my cards of what I accomplished and looking forward to Week 13!

Week 11 Master Key Experience: Circling back and gaining increased understanding!

I love/hate how much this journey pushes me! There are so many tasks to do and seems like there is never enough time to do them! So that is my old blueprint working out a way to stay in charge. It HAS been a challenge to get in ALL of the exercises, but I have been focused on the core readings and looking my movie poster. I am working with Michelle Dahlman on Masterminding and she told me that she is re-working her DMP with Danny Linkert, which got me to thinking that my DMP does not evoke enough passion to really drive it home, so now I am re-looking mine! AHHHH! The process is never-ending!

Lifelong learners like us understand that we are never done with the process, but I have never begun such a DELIBERATE process to change previously! I STILL don’t understand the whole color chart thing AND my service card only has a couple of things on it. My “excuse” is that I travel a lot and that I cant really do services around the house. Do I need to be more creative? YEP! So that is my focus this week. Am I behind schedule? YEP! But I will PERSIST until I am successful!

The Mental Diet has me more cognizant of negative thoughts entering my mind, even though I still have not been able to go 7 days in a row without having to restart, usually due to my boss! DANG! Now I have to re-start again!

Week 10 Master Key Experience: Backsliding?

This was a challenging week for me. Not only is it the beginning of the holiday season, but I also had to assist with teaching a course in a different building than where my office is located.

This put a huge kink in my normal routine and interrupted my “flow”! Plus I was working right next to a person that definitely caused negative thoughts to flood my mind! The Mental Diet at least caused me to identify that those negative thoughts were there and so I actively tried to replace those negative thoughts with positive ones!

While I was relatively successful, I feel that just identifying that the negative thoughts existed was a HUGE win! With working longer days, it also through off my reading and I focused on GS, DPM, and Haanel. I also was not able to listen to the webinars about finding my purpose, but that WILL happen at the first part of this week! How do I know? Because I ALWAYS keep my promises!

Week 9 Master Key Experience: Staying the course

Hard to believe that it is Week 9 of the MKE already! Last week I feel like I had a real epiphany about how important attaching emotions to our goals will help them become more “real”! I have worked on using more emotion when I read out loud, trying to channel James Earl Jones….and it seems to be helping!

Still struggling with the whole shapes thing, but have committed to getting it “fixed” over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend! The Mental Diet (I quit calling it the 7 Day Mental Diet since I have been working on it for MORE than 7 days!) is a HUGE challenge, but if nothing else it is forcing me to focus on my thoughts instead of just allowing them free range around my brain!

I know that although I don’t know how, I am trusting that all of the pieces will come together to AMAZE us! Channeling Mr. Miyagi!

Scott’s DMP Press Release

Hi! This is Bill Phillips and I am here today with Scott Nelson to discuss the amazing success that he has had in the past 9 months. It has been nothing short of spectacular! So let’s get into the interview!

Bill: Scott, thank you so much for taking time to sit down with me and tell me the story of the success that you have had in the last 9 months. I know that my readers are dying to know how you did it!

Scott: Thanks Bill! I sometimes have to pinch myself when I wake up in the morning that this is MY life that I am living!

Bill: Can you take me back to the moment that you changed things to start on the path to success?

Scott: Certainly! It all started back in September of 2018. I am really not sure where I received the information from, but I must have seen an ad or an email that talked about something called the Master Key Experience. I had been looking for something to help me change my mindset to help me experience success and provide me with the ability to live where I wanted and to travel where I wanted to, when I wanted! For some reason, the information about this course really resonated with me. So I decided to give it a try. WOW! I had no idea that there would be so much time and work involved, but as we progressed, Mark and his team explained that we have been conditioned to think a certain way that has NOT been serving us for years! And in my case DECADES! So it was going to take a lot of time, effort, and energy to change all of that conditioning. But I stuck with it, and indeed change did come, and along with it came the success that I had been craving!

Bill: That sounds amazing! What kind of success were you craving that you saw “manifesting” for you?

Scott: Bill, as you know I represent Wakaya Perfection, particularly their line of products that support the ketogenic lifestyle. My wife and I had seen phenomenal results not only in losing weight, but in how we felt and our overall health! I feel so blessed to have found Keto and I am never going back! Well, I was just telling a few people about our success with keto and the products, but once my inner blueprint changed and I decided I wanted to go BIG, opportunities and people just seemed to come out of the woodwork to help me achieve my goals! I had a friend of mine who had talked about helping me develop sales funnels and put a bunch of people into my business had forgot about that and was almost avoiding me before I started changing my blueprint. But once the new blueprint started taking hold, all of a sudden he was energized to help again an he was absolutely key in getting my business to EXPLODE! In a matter of 7 months, I went from almost nothing in my business to several hundred which propelled me to the rank of Diamond within the company and has given me the income that I needed to quit my job as a contractor and start traveling where I want to, not where my boss tells me to go! Although my wife certainly has a say in where we go! LOL!

Bill: That is AMAZING! And you think that just because you were changing how you think, your friend changed how he perceived this project and jumped on board? Pretty woo woo stuff, dont you think?

Scott: LOL! I used to think the same thing, but I have EXPERIENCED how transforming how we think and how we change our VIBRATIONS, changes how we are perceived by other people, and more importantly….God! He made this earth with energy at the very core of everything’s makeup, so if we change our energy from negative to positive, we attract positive things! I don’t claim to understand it all, I just know that it WORKS!

Bill: Well that is absolutely apparent with the success that you have achieved! What do you think is the greatest moment in the last year?

Scott: Well of course, helping all of those hundreds of people see incredible improvements in their health and financial situations is extremely gratifying, but the one moment that will always stick out to me was when my wife and I were in Las Vegas for the 2019 International Carubi Con where we were going to be recognized as a Diamond couple. My wife had hocked her wedding ring a few years ago when we were in debt and struggling in our marriage, so she had been wearing a cubic zirconia ring since then. My dream had been for years to finally be in a position that I could buy her a REAL diamond wedding ring! I will never forget when we went into Zales the day before we were to be recognized and I purchased her a 2.5 carat diamond solitaire ring! Her eyes literally sparkled like the diamond on her finger! She was a giddy as a school girl and couldn’t stop giggling! And she is 52 yrs old! LOL! THAT was something that I had dreamed about for SOOOO long and to finally make it happen the day before we were recognized as Diamonds in Wakaya Perfection made it that much more special!

Bill: WOW! That is quite the story! So in closing, what would you tell our readers?

Scott: Make a decision! Make a decision to change what you are doing currently so that you can have the life that you have always dreamed of having because it CAN happen! Not changing what we are doing and expecting different results is the definition of INSANITY! So change what you are doing, and get the results that you want. But you have to execute those changes with ENTHUUUSSSIASM, or they will not happen!

Bill: Great advice! I think I need to talk to you about this Master Key Experience. Sounds like I could definitely benefit from it! Until next time, this is Bill Phillips. Thanks for reading!

About Scott

I am a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel of 28 years. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, but have never been able to realize those ambitions due to my time in the Army AND my own emotional blocks. I am THRILLED that God pointed me to the Master Key Experience as a means that will methodically break down the emotional blocks to my success that I have held onto for so long and help me become the man that I have always dreamed of being!IMG_4995

Week 8 Master Key Experience: Emotions!

I have been hearing about how important emotions are to the process of changing our thinking since Day One of the Master Key Experience, but I never really understood until this week!

I mean, I am a DUDE! We don’t show our emotions! That is for women, or for men who are much more “in touch” with their feminine side! But then I realized that emotions were not things that made me soft, but provided enthusiasm, purpose, direction! If I could feel excitement about my DMP, it would drive that desire deep into my SOUL!

The visualization piece really hit me this week like it has not before. The paragraph that talks about how a businessman has to visualize the organization with hundreds and thousands of people in it and all of the things that must take place to create success really resonated with me because I want a large network marketing team, but I had never VISUALIZED what that would look like and FEEL like! Light bulb moment! But I have to visualize it in such a way that it evokes strong emotion so that it creates such a desire that I feel it deep in my gut that I NEED this to happen, or I will burst!

I am so much more focused on accomplishing all of the daily tasks with EMOTION to actually drive them into my subby and force him to believe and start manifesting the desires that I am planting!

Why didn’t I hear this information before? It would have made such a big difference! The truth of the matter is that I was NOT ready to really HEAR and UNDERSTAND the information. Once I had heard it enough times in enough different ways, it finally clicked with me! So excited to see where this takes me!

Week 7 Master Key Experience: Who knee my brain was so negative?

Another great webinar with great info. Still working on learning to sit and have my brain focus. There is a reason that focus is such an important skill since it is so difficult to attain! I started on the 7-day Mental Diet and the first day I had to re-start a half dozen times! Part of the issue is that I have a rude, socially stunted man as a boss. So I went in with an attitude that could have been better. Surprisingly, this is the first week that he has been civil since I have worked there! I started to focus on starting each day with love in my heart, and it seems to be working!
