#1 thing I learned will change your day and all your days to come

#1 thing I learned will change your day and all your days to come.

When I was a kid I had this poster in my room and I still remember it so clearly to this day.

It was a 2 frame poster cartoon, 1 frame above the other like in the newspaper just not left to right but top to bottom. The top picture was a cartoon of elevator doors open and you’re looking in at a bunch of people. You can tell they’re going to work. All grumpy, mad, sad faces and holding briefcases and stuff.

To the left of the elevator door is a woman in profile heading to get on the elevator and she is holding a baby on her shoulder so the baby’s face was looking back in the other direction.

Then the bottom frame was the elevator of people with the woman and she is facing you and you see the back of the baby and all the people in the elevator have huge smiles on their faces.

I just loved looking at that poster as a kid. I think that’s why what I want to share with you impacted me so much.

I have looked all over the internet for this little gem but can’t find it. This picture really was worth a thousand words.

Now I want to share this because you are not going to believe this #1 thing I learned today from my good friend Jana Martinez.  This #1 thing I learned will change your day and all your days to come.#1 Thing I Learned Will Change Your Day

It’s the very first week of the new 2016-17 Master Key Mastermind Experience class and we are all super excited about making real and lasting change!

Jana did an awesome Learn to Read Faster webinar for us today and at the end of the webinar she told us this one thing that I CAN NOT believe I have not heard before.

Ok here goes this 1 thing I learned will change your day.

Smile!  Ha! Are you kidding me. Nope I’m not. SMILE!

So here’s the thing.  If you smile and hold that big smile for 17 seconds you will release all those happy, pleasure hormones.  These hormones are knows as endorphins.  You’ve heard of those, right?

These are triggered by the movements of the muscles in your face, which is interpreted by your brain, which in turn releases these chemicals.  If you’re stressed out the SMILE because it not only releases endorphins, but get this, it also reduces cortisol which is the stress hormone!  Double the benefit!#1 Thing I Learned Will Change Your Day#1 Thing I Learned Will Change Your Day

Ready for the triple benefit?  When you smile you look better, younger and happy which attracts people to you.

17 Seconds can change your entire day – the effects last four hours!  Can you believe that, half the work day, if you have a job!  Smile twice and your entire day is better. Smile 6 times a day that’s it to change your day and all your days to come.

And guess what?  If you hold that smile for 65 seconds you actually lower your blood pressure!  That will change all your days forever.

Here’s a classic laugh out loud for ya! It’s one of my favorite TV shows ever and I now it will make you smile.

What is Your Because?

You hear it all the time, “I can’t because…”

So what is your because?

Because you don’t have enough what? Time ~ Money ~ Resources ~ Education ~ Connections ~ Friends ~ Family ~ Love ~ …. Fill in the blank.

You can’t achieve more because.

Well that bullshit, the sentence should read I can’t because I’m full of shit and don’t want to get of the proverbial couch and do something with my life.

We’re lazy, you’re lazy, I’m lazy. Americans are the laziest people on the earth. Elbert Hubbard wrote in 1899! in A Message to Garcia,the most reprinted publication of all time, besides the Bible, “No man who has endeavored to carry out an enterprise where many hands were needed, but has been well-nigh appalled at times by the imbecility of the average man – the inability or unwillingness to concentrate on a thing and do it.”

So here is your opportunity to stop acting like the “average man” do something with your life, here is a starting point for you.

And if you’re like me and tried 100s of things, books, classes, therapy, groups, more books and videos on and on and on and nothing made much difference then here is your answer too.

The reason all the self-help stuff doesn’t work, the silly leadership stuff, the walking on coals, the spending $1000s of dollars getting up sold and up sold, the reason is that there is no accountability and no real support.

You can’t do it yourself. There should be no such thing as self-help. What we all need is to become self directed thinkers and that is what our course is about.

It’s about joining a community of people who what more from their lives – Do you want more from your life?

It’s Never Enough No It’s Never Enough – MKE Week 19

It’s Never Enough No It’s Never Enough – are part of lyrics from a great song by the Bare Naked Ladies. “Life in a Nutshell”. Love that title too. I’m grateful to that band for reasons you don’t need to know but do you ever feel it’s never enough no it’s never enough? Why, why do we feel that way sometimes. Maybe all the time…

Concern about your resources could make you feel uncertain today or everyday. Is this due to your feeling that life isn’t going according to your plan particularly when you compare yourself with others? Even though it may seem as if you don’t have enough or that you are lacking in some way, you may wish to bring your attention to what you have in life that is truly precious and the gifts that the universe has given you. Perhaps today you can create a gratitude list for the things that you have.

There a great song in the movie “White Christmas” sung by Bing Crosby & The Incredible Rosemary Clooney, and part of the chorus is “count your blessings instead of sheep” and I try to remember that scene everyday.

Count your blessings instead of sheep. Some of you may not know what that reference means. The origin of that particular reference is for years if you couldn’t fall asleep the remedy was to count sheep in your mind. Kind of funny and weird when you think about it, just bore yourself to sleep really.

Anyhow, one of the best remedies for the feeling of lack, as eluded to above, is to remember all the things you’re grateful for or in other words your blessings. So here is a great tip for that, start with the letter A and write all the things that begin with A that you are grateful for:

So I start with Air – without that blessing don’t mean nothing.

Arms I’m super grateful for my arms – I saw this woman on a documentary one time and she had no arms and was taking care of her baby… with her feet and her mouth – AMAZING. Although she was super strong for doing that it made me more grateful for my lovely, strong arms! Sometimes I’m not because genetically I have to work very hard on them as they carry a lot of body fat and I feel super self-conscious about them – So I’m very grateful to remember how grateful I am for my arms. Wow so I’m grateful for 3 things already!

I believe you can see how this could become a huge list and never enough as a distant memory.  So work at it everyday – it’s a great tip I believe. So do it today even if you realize you are nature’s greatest miracle and that you and your life is perfect as it is and you are always evolving!

I love you!
It's Never Enough

do you really have ethics?

Do You Really Have Ethics? Week 14 Master Key Experience

Do You Really Have Ethics? Week 14 Master Key Experience

So you’re walking by a large shallow pond.  You see a small child on the other side floundering and will drown in seconds.  You realize you’re wearing your $200 or 300 pair shoes designer shoes.  There’s not time to take them off – what do you do?  Do you really have ethics?

Of course… of course – saving the child is the ethical thing to do! Of course.  Do you really have ethics?

So now you have that $200 or $300 or $2 or $3 and you could send it to Oxfam or Unicef to save the life of a child or many children what do you do?  Or 1 hours a week if money is an issue.  Although I’ll tell you right now if your not tithing don’t expect anything to be coming to you.

So do you have ethics?

Well according to a recent poll less that 5% of Americans tithe in any shape or form.  So I’m saying you don’t… You don’t have ethics unless your in the 5% who do contribute.

I must digress here and let you know BEFORE you contribute to anything, especially a “religious” type of organization, check and see how much of what you are contributing is going to the end user.  Charitable organizations are only required by law to send  a mere 17% to the end user.  I know it’s disgraceful, ask yourself does the government have ethics either.  It should be no surprise that 95% of Americans don’t either.  Due to the fact that they are charitable 501C3 organizations they also must, by law, also make their financials available to the public.  So do your homework and make sure that at least 50% is going to the entities they are claiming to help BEFORE you give them any of your hard earned income?

They are out there – charities that are ethical and they are easy to find.

I believe this is a valuable question to ask I know that most people won’t do anything differently, even when confronted with the fact that their ethics may be a little shaky.  Most people don’t do anything differently when confronted with modes of behavior that may be unethical in some shape or form.

So it comes down to one things, as it always does, personal responsibility.  We all have a personal responsibility to help and be of service to others who need our help.

It’s just a question and I know the Master Key Experience members will appreciate asking themselves as they are self directed thinkers!

Mahalo & Aloha,

Week 12 Master Key Experience Harmony

Week 12 Master Key Experience Harmony

Harmony is on my mind today.  Week 12 Master Key Experience Harmony is on my mind.

Why is harmony so difficult to attain with humans.  All other life forms on this planet have zero trouble achieving harmony.  Every other life form!  Everyone except us.

The lack of harmony among humans is astonishing to me.

Ego, opinions, lack of personal responsibility, unwillingness to do what ones says they will do – so frustrating.

Hey, I’m not perfect and I do this stuff to.  I guess it’s free will run riot.

Anyone I’m focusing on being as harmonious as I possibly can today and everyday.

I’m frustrated this week and I usually am around this time.

It’s so sad when people quit the class and it’s so hard when people don’t get what we are trying to do.  It’s so sad to me when people don’t want to do the work.  Do what they promised they would do.

That’s why we have everyone write “I always keep my promises” all over everything we do.  Every card has, “I always keep my promises”.

People today think nothing of blowing off a promise, missing appointments or lying about showing up.  It’s crazy.

I’m at the end of the baby boomers and I gotta tell ya, my parents would NEVER make a promise and not keep it.  They were both from the greatest generation.  That group of people  although maybe more prejudice about things were certainly driven by integrity.  Fear of God.

What I mean by Fear of God is not hell and wrath of God type stuff but Karma if you will – if you do a certain action you are going to pay a price good or bad.

People don’t believe that today, if you hurt someone, if you lie, if you steal, kill whatever you will pay a debt for that action.  The same is true for being kind, inservice, loving humanity – there is a payment for that too.

I’ve always said that peace of mind is my birthright, it’s on my DMP.  So few of us have peace of mind. Experience a calmness and quieting of our minds.  If you desire peace of mind get into harmony.

Let’s get into harmony, be kind, shout praise from the roofs, when tempted to critique bite on your tongue.

I love you!

Transform your life


Tomorrow Never Comes

Master Key Experience Week 10 Tomorrow Never Comes

Tomorrow Never ComesMaster Key Experience Week 10 Tomorrow Never Comes

Today is December 3rd, 2016 and Week 11 webinar is tomorrow but, tomorrow never comes.

You may say, “What do you mean Davene, tomorrow never comes?”

Well I’ll tell you.

When my husband Mark was writing his book, “Standing Tall, Acquiring the 13 Riches of Life Effortlessly” he wrote this one, what I though was, a very funny verse.

“Look, you can never get there because once you get there … you are here. Happiness, health; real wealth is here, not there. I mean it might seem like we’re playing with words but we are not. The Verities and the thirteen riches of life are here, not there. Most people believe life begins for them when they get some place, ya know? When they get there. We all get trapped in that moving goal post thing. That’s the irony! Trying to get there prevents us from being here and here is the only place wealth is can be,” he says.

I tell him really I’m confused with the “here and there” thing and “now we’ve got the moving goal posts.”

Asks me to walk across the lanai, points to a spot. Says, “Go over there.” I do.

He goes through the sliders and out of sight. He asks me to yell to him my location … “so tell me, if I was looking for you, would you say, ‘I’m there’ or would you say ‘I’m here?’”


He comes back out on the lanai.

“I told you to go over there…but when I asked you where you were, you said ‘I’m here’. You can never get “there” Doc exclaims. “As soon as you get ‘there’ you are here” 

from “Standing Tall, Acquiring the 13 Riches of Life Effortlessly” by Mark Januszewski

I just love that – stop trying to get there, you’re already here! Enjoy it!

I Love You, The Fab D

Down The Shitter Master Key Experience

One Little Holiday And Everything Goes Down The Shitter Week 9 MKE

One Little Holiday And Everything Goes Down The Shitter Week 9 MKE

It’s already Saturday and I am late and totally forgot because of one little holiday and everything goes down the shitter week 9 MKE.

So I’m super late writing my blog.  I just realized that it’s Saturday and I have NOT written my Week 9 MKE Blog yet. So down the shitter week 9 MKE almost.  Saved at the last minute, better late than never.

So Thursday was Thanksgiving in the United States of America and that is a high holiday here.  I’m not sure why if you consider what our European ancestors actually did once they got here.  Not cool.

Anywho, this one little holiday threw me completely off the tracks of completing my work.  So Down the shitter Week 9 MKE blog. My checklists are empty and I’ve missed the mark on a bunch of stuff.

I love that little cartoon that says something about if I don’t die till my to do list is done I’ll never die.  I can’t remember it but I remember thinking – that’s me.

My work will never be finished.  And I’m grateful right at this moment that I do have alot of work to do.

Although not enjoying that this one day holiday derailed me.  It’s been a theme in my life that I get very nervous and confuffled right before holidays.  Sometimes I could not go to school right before holiday vacations.  Not sure what it’s all about but it happened this week.

There may be a task here of digging to this, analyzing is my hobby, to find out if there is a piece of cement that needs knocking off.  Or not.  I’ll leave it to the Universe, but I am grateful that it’s been brought to the forefront of my mind.

[thrive_optin color=”orange” text=”Give Me 7 Day Detox” optin=”8859″ size=”medium” layout=”horizontal”]

So many, many things to be grateful for I can’t list them

Had a great Thanksgiving and I hope you did too.

I love You,
