Master Key Mastermind Alliance Week 13


The Master Key Mastermind Alliance Week 13 has a week off next Sunday because this is Christmas Week for some of us.   AND 13 is my lucky number – I was born on Friday the 13th!  So lucky!

Being Christmas week, I think I lost a day because I thought today was Friday and it’sMaster Key mastermind Alliance actually Saturday.

This is a quality challenge, because the weather is beautiful everyday sometime I forgot what day, month and even year it is on a regular basis.

Yes I am saying that losing day is common place for me.  But I’m super grateful though.  Living in Kauai does have it’s upside too 🙂

Anyway, this week has been so full of awarenesses and epiphanies that it has been a bit overwhelming.

It’s hard to believe the we are half way through the Master Key Mastermind Alliance experience and I am so, so grateful for this year’s class.  I have grown unbelievably through their example. Mahalo nui loa class of 2015-16.

The thing I’m the most grateful for this holiday season, it’s been the greatest gift, is the forgiveness.  Ah such a relief.

Forgiving others, some who probably don’t even require my forgiveness, and self forgiveness.  The peace of mind that comes from authentic forgiveness is so beautiful I can’t even describe it.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not been an instanenous occurrence not by any means.  In some cases it’s been years, decades!

There have been some recent changes and “in my face” examples of how unforgiving I have been in the past and I won’t say I regret the unforgiving person I have been but I will say it’s been a waste of time that I forgive myself for wasting it!

Master Key mastermind AllianceWe at the MKMMA are committed to excellence and today on this blog I want to publicly say mahalo to our Guides, Master Guides and staff that all work so hard to make this course a life changing experience.

I love you all!

How Can A Pebble Make You Happy

Years ago I did this weekend retreat called A Cursillo.  Here is a description:

The Cursillo weekend is an invitation for you to experience the love of Jesus Christ on a personal level and to bring this love and joy into your daily life.

I gotta say for that time in my life I felt very loved.  The people who run the Cursillo encourage your family, friends and even strangers to write you notes and letters and give you little gifts whatever they want to show how you are loved.

There are other things that people will do like fast or give something up (sacrifice) for the time you are at Cursillo to honor what you are doing.  While I was there my sister put a pebble in her shoe to remind her to pray for me and send me love and strength.  My sister sacrificed comfort to be of service to me.

This got me thinking about a challenge that we have with people who decide to take the giant leap into the Master Key Mastermind Alliance experience.  Now lots of people take the course and experience real life changing stuff so it’s important that we give them all the help we can.

Sacrifice is a big part of what we teach members in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance course and the other day I was reminded of the pebble in my shoe thing.

seaturtleWe were standing on the rocks watching the sea turtles in Poipu and a tiny rock slipped into my shoe and I walked with that pebble till I got to the car.

The led me to thinking about sacrifice and service and our members.  See we have these Certified Guides that are there to help our members through the course.  Yes, we offer this amazing one on one support.  So I am working out ways to assist the Certified Guides in helping our members make it through the entire course and making their lives better.

When we think about becoming better, and part of becoming better is giving up the things that are in our way, we have to include sacrifice.  Sacrifice in other words means giving up or overcoming whatever is in your way of achieving the life you want.

This is a struggle for most people.  If they can even think of what it is they want their life to be in the first place then they can try and figure out what is getting in the way of achieving that life.

So I have a suggestion.

pebbleinshoeIf your life is not what you want it to be e.g. are you happy, do you know your unique talents, do you experience bliss?  Are you happy in your job, your relationships, your living situation, with your family, with your friends.  Do you feel whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy?  If you don’t then put a pebble in your shoe.  Walk around with that in your shoe all day and try and figure out what it is that you must give up or overcome to achieve a blissful life.

This is just an experiment that I’m trying out so go ahead and do it and let me know what happens.

The Master Key Mastermind Alliance changes lives and it can change yours too.  Check it out at

Aloha & Mahalo from beautiful Kauai

Another Miracle of the Master Key Experience


Working hard and having the right mind set certainly helps.  This amazing life didn’t just appear before my eyes.  Hard mental labor had to be applied daily.

The hard mental labor most are not willing to do, as stated by Charles Haanel the author of The Master Key System – which is why so few have amazing lives.  That’s sad to me because this is not easy but it’s very simple.

The “Master Key Experience” is the fastest and easiest way possible to achieve what you really want in life.  This course was created by the magnificent Mark Januszewski.


Because I received ANOTHER email today that blew my mind, made me cry a little, made my heart soar, made me cover my mouth, say OOOOOOOO and thank the Universe.  In the words of the immortal Dirty Harry, “go ahead made my day.”

Well it happened today.  Another “Master Key Experience” member and Certified Guide for the “Master Key Experience” just made my day!

Like I said ANOTHER email.  Because I get alot of these “blow your mind” emails, thank the Universe I do, but this one was particularly rewarding and humbling.

The reason for that is when we received this marvelous woman’s DMP (Definite Major Purpose) statement a few years ago, A DMP is what our members are required to do.  Write out their goals in a particularly powerful way.  Anyway when the DMP was received it was assigned to my daughter – The Dynamic Dayna Marie Merry.  Now Dayna was an apprentice at critiquing DMPs at that time and wisely asked for assistance.  Dayna said, “Mom she wants to move to Ireland but she’s so negative about it I don’t know what to tell her”?  So she sent it to me to help.

When I saw the DMP it was indeed extremely negative and needed some improvement but I could feel the true desire written in it and gave her some educated feedback.

This person ultimately because a Certified Guide with the “Master Key Experience” and now she gives educated critiques to new members on their DMPs.  So that’s cool – but you have got to read what I received this morning from that very person:

Just wanted to let you know that I am moving with my family to Ireland in August!!  Yes I had it in my DMP and it’s manifesting right before my eyes.  We put our house on the market May 1st and we were in contract 3 weeks later.  Our next adventure is just beginning.  I am embracing all that goes with moving and there is a lot as you know. 


This is a blow your mind email and is just another in a long line of bliss, joy, happiness, courage, strength, perfection, power, love DMPs that have come to fruition through the Master Key Experience.

There will be many, many more to come and I hope if you are reading this that you’ll be one of them because I know you deserve to be deeply happy everyday of your life.

The joy I feel at being able to humbly serve the great beings that inhabit this planet is indescribable and I feel truly, truly blessed by God, or whatever you choose to call this marvelous Universal Energy, that helps me daily.

Top 6 Attributes of a Servant Leader

When people use the term Servant Leader it’s almost always wrong in principle.

That person is they are referring to is NOT a servant leader.   I say to myself – “it’s just a catch phrase people are throwing around”. Ya, what else is new.  People are forever throwing around “politically correct” phrases that they don’t even understand. constant posting of the podcast that Richard Bliss Brooke of, did with the genius mind Mark Januszewski, The World’s Laziest Networker (Click Here to hear that podcast) is an answer to this constant throwing around of this very important phrase describing people out there as Servant Leaders.  Here are 2 true Servant Leaders.

If you really want to be a Servant Leader don’t bother with the gurus and book writers out there. All they are is good writers and good promoters NOT servant leaders.

Here are the top 6 attributes of a Servant Leader.

1. Listening
2. Empathy
3. Healing
4. Awareness
5. Influence
6. Commitment to the growth of people

So there you go and here are a few tips on how to become better at these essential attributes.

1. Listening – this seems easy, but most are very, very bad a listening.  They’re too busy looking at their iphones. LOL
No really this is super important.  Listening to what someone is actually saying is cool but even more important is body language. About 90% of what someone is saying is in their body language. So shut your pie hole and watch the body’s response to what you say.

Find a free course in body language or watch a video about interpreting what someone is saying without talking.

The 2nd greatest way to listen is to try to figure out their personality type.

Here is a quick way to try to figure out personality type. Ask yourself 2 questions about the person you are listening to.
1. Does this person make decisions quickly or slowly?
2. Does this person care more about people or concepts?

There are 4 personality types – Red and the Red would be quick and concepts.
Blues – Blues would be slow and people.
Whites – Slow and concepts.
Yellows – Quick and people.

Super easy just listen to what personality color they are and you’ll be listening without even trying.

If you want to find out more about color code personality types go to

2. Empathy is essential, there an old saying “Walk a mile in my shoes” truly do this , in service, and you’ll be all set and you’ll be a Servant Leader.

3. Healing – Have the knowledge, support and resources that people under you need to do their jobs effectively and that have a happy workplace.  This is a healing environment.

4. Self-Awareness is the ability to look at yourself. How do you effect the people around you. Take 100% responsibility for all your relationships. How could YOU do better?

5. Influence is NOT persuasion. Learn what makes someone tick and then identify the vital behaviors they need to change and influence them to change those behaviors. Try telling vicarious and compelling stories to help someone change.  Ya it’s work but being a great leader is work.

6. Commit to People’s Growth personal as well as professional. Make sure that you understand their developmental needs to do their jobs.  Do whatever you can to help them achieve their goals.

Here’s a way to do 5 and 6 simultaneously.

Another way to influence someone is to find out what they really, really want to achieve in their life and use that information to get them to do what you know will help them grow. This way you use 5 and 6 together.

The easiest way to find this out is to ask this question, “If you had all the money and all the time you wanted what would you do?”

Use this to leverage behaviors that will get them closer to their goals.

Be a Servant Leader!

MKMMA Week 11 – What’s the Point?

While reading Luc Griffet’s awesome MKMMA Week 11 blog post this movie clip popped into my mind.

One of the major themes of the Week 11 section is Persistence.  Mark and Trish wrote a brilliant webcast last week about how all the MKMMA members have already developed the amazing gift of Persistence.  They didn’t even know they were doing it!

It’s so awesome to tell them all what the have already accomplished in just 1o short weeks.  A new life.

Then, as usual with me, anger and resentment set in, it makes me sad too, but real anger wells up when thinking about all those A$&h0L3s out there telling people to be persistent.  Man do I get mad at gurus!!!

I want to punch them in the face for being so selfish and just wanting to sell crap to people by touting bullshit like telling folks to persist without out telling what to persist at!  Right! common sense not so common.

OK so anyway, (restart the Mental Diet, again) I thought about this clip from the movie Lincoln which is a great movie that was based on only 5 pages of the great Doris Kerns book “Team of Rivals“.

So watch this and you’ll understand what Luc meant and what I agree with.  Persistence is useless if you are not conscious of what you are persisting at, right!?

Persist at truths.  If you don’t know the truth then be quiet and listen and you’ll hear it.

You know, you’re just to busy with self centered crap.  Swamps, deserts and chasms like iphones, tablets, facebook, instagram, TV, movies, bullshit drama and chaos, that if you think about it you probably created, going to concerts, out drinking & partying, depression or some other time waster that you created in your life in the first place.

Find out what your true North really is.  If you just put that friggin phone down, sit quietly and still for a few minutes with your eyes closed you’ll be surprised at what you’ll hear.

Mahalo & Love,

MKMMA Week 4 – The Old Blueprint

With Gold Key On Home Construction BlueprintsThis is our 5th MKMMA class.  It’s shaking out about the same as the previous 4.  That’s because we are dealing with humans.

I rejoice in all the MKMMAers who are sticking it out and doing the work and going the extra mile to improve their lives and the lives of all who surround them.

Not it’s not easy but it’s very, very simple!


I know the MKMMA course is not perfect, as we are human too.  Pretty close though.

Humans pretty much will all behave about the same when confronted with the reality of their current lives and circumstances.  Most of which they are NOT happy with. BTW.

Just watch the some TV if you don’t believe me.  No I don’t mean watch a TV show or shows, I mean really watch it.

Oh I know you don’t watch TV, ya nobody watches TV.  😉

Zero good news on the news – which isn’t news since it not the truth.  Reality TV?  Zombies?  Drugs, violence, murder, that’s what humans want.

Even PBS is funded by the Koch Kriminals.

It can sometimes be sad to be idealistic in the world in which we live, where you have to search for good news and heroes.

Our mission is to show as many people as possible that THEY ARE heroes, that they deserve peace, joy, happiness, bliss and all that life has to offer.  IF and only IF they are willing to do the work!

Anyone who has the courage to change is a hero in their own life!  What is better than that?

Sadly so many won’t answer the call, the call to become a hero.  They will let their old blueprint, the one that makes them so unhappy, win.

This is a hard week for me because so many will go back to their lives of quiet desperation, as Thoreau so beautifully stated, such a sad truth.  So that’s it – I let it go.


I rejoice in all the MKMMAers who are sticking it out, diggin in and doing the work and going the extra mile (without judgement) to improve their lives and the lives of all who surround it.

Not it’s not easy but it’s very, very simple!



Here Is Your 1 Solution to Everything!

Just created this new Opt In Campaign The 7 Day Mental Diet based on Emmet Fox’s great work.

My friend and a member of our Master Keys Mastermind Alliance course Marea Adejuwon gave me this great idea, so I did it.

If you opt in on my list you get this great Solution to Everything.  Most people are too busy to take the time to read 4 pages that will change their lives forever, but some of them will do it.

A a great part is the campaign is on 5 emails – Everyone know we all get to many emails.

I’m just back to blogging after a long, long time and we are launching Master Key Mastermind Alliance course again soon so I’m getting back in the blog saddle.

We had a very eventful summer so blogging was not at the top of the list.

We had a grand daughter the same weekend of the Go90Grow Live Event here is Kauai, that was actually kind of cool that it happened then.  Little Soul is now 4 months old it’s hard to believe.

All my dreams are coming true and a little native hawaiian grand baby was one of those dreams.  I get to take care of the angel Soul every Sunday & Monday for now.

This is because of the principles laid out in The 7-Day Mental Diet and the Master Keys.


Make Yourself, Well, Better

I looked up the word “better” in the Thesaurus on my computer.  Here is the first line under the adjective good, which is the first synonym of better.  So I could write a blog about “Make Yourself Better” and I was looking for a better way to say better.  😉 I love irony.

Fine, superior, quality; excellent, superb, outstanding, magnificent, exceptional, marvelous, wonderful, first-rate, first-class, sterling; satisfactory, acceptable, not bad, all right; informal great, OK, A1, jake, hunky-dory, ace, terrific, fantastic, fabulous, fab, top-notch, blue-chip, blue-ribbon, bang-up, killer, class, awesome, wicked; smashing, brilliant.

Dictionaries and Thesaurus are crappy from my experience.  Fine – really, Fine is first and smashing and brilliant are last.  WTF is this world about.  Fine is first!!!

I find it shocking that fabulous or top-notch are not first.  Don’t you?

In looking for a better way, well not better but a way that has less hits on google, a better way to say “Make Yourself Better” I decided to Thesaurus that thing and these are the dismal results.  Fine is first.

What did Donald Sutherland say about FINE in the movie “The Italian Job”:

F – Freaked-Out

I – Insecure

N – Neutoric

E – Emotional

Yep, that is what is going on with most people who say they are “fine”.

My take is that you’re not fine you are bang-up, you’re killer, you’re AWESOME!!  Do you believe that?

Can you look yourself right in the eye, while looking in the mirror and say, loud and proud, I AM FANTASTIC, TERRIFIC, HUNKY-DORY (ya sorry about that one, but it’s cute try it).  Can you stare into your own eyes and say, “I’m all that AND a bag of chips?”  Can you even just stare into your own eyes?

I’m guessing no you can’t, at least you can’t comfortably.  If you stare into someone else’s eyes for more that a few seconds you’ll get uncomfortable, even someone you know and love dearly.

Mark and I, well actually just Mark, did this exercise at the recent Go90Grow Live Event here in Kauai where the participants looked into each others eyes which holding onto each others DMPs – or Definite Major Purposes that were written out, and the crying started almost immediately.  I applaud the first few cryers!!!

Have you ever tried for even thought about why you can’t do that without some kind of strong emotional response?

Your life is never going to be what you want it to be unless you start asking yourself some of these hard questions.

It’s easy to be broke, stressed, tired, fed up!  Yes, that easy compared to starting in the mirror and loving yourself.  Go ahead try it and let me know how it goes.

I read this today, “The philosophy of education is that not matter what happens, something in you has to change.   If you have been changed by contact with another person, that has taught you something.”

This is what we are trying to do with our courses Go90Grow for MLMers and The Master Key Mastermind Experience for everyone else.

http://mkmmacourse.comIf you want things to change in your life you have to change your mind FIRST.  Let’s change your mind.  Here is a link to all the blogs from the last The Master Key Mastermind Experience Course that we ran.

I challenge you to read these and not be compelled to find out more.  Start in the first weeks of these blogs and see that change that occur over time.  I guarantee all these people can look in the mirror and very happily and comfortably say, “I love you!”

Mahalo & Aloha from Kauai,

So Chelsea, daughter number 1, says Mark and I have not been spending enough time together.  She’s right, we have been working alot.  With Go90Grow and Master Key Mastermind Alliance running at the same time it’s been a challenge.

Anyway she gave us a wonderful Christmas gift of a New Years Eve Cruise down the NaPali coast and since it’s Hawaiian Humpback Whale season it’s twice as good.

Here is the short video of the cruise highlights:
