MKE Week #2 – Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!

Well, it’s been an interesting week, to say the least. I’ve found that my subconscious mind has been “ruling the roost” for far too long, and doesn’t intend to give up it’s lofty position without a fight! It tries to talk me out of everything and sabotage me every step along the way. You don’t have to do your DMP, just tell them you’ve got a bad cold (true) and you’ll do it next week when you feel better. You don’t have to do a blog entry, just tell them you had writer’s block and couldn’t figure out what to write. You don’t have to say things out loud and especially with enthusiasm, what will other people think?! It’s embarrassing! And who will know if you sneak a peak on the internet after you supposedly retired for the night? What harm could that do?

I think you get the picture. So that’s what inspired the title for today’s entry. You know how they say that phrase ” LGRTR”(with enthusiasm), before the start of a boxing match? Well that’s what it’s been like all week. Like 2 heavyweight boxers standing toe to toe. In one corner the new me trying to remain calm and resolute. And in the other corner my old subby trash talking and casting doubt and fear.

I’ve experienced a lot of tragedy in my life lately. My father died. I lost my job, lost my car, my mom’s cat died and I found her dead on the floor. It’s been permeated by struggle, loss of freedom and a sense of grief over a lost way of life. And right on cue, there is my subby cautioning me that, you know you thought things couldn’t get much worse, but they can. You’re getting adjusted and used to your new way of life. Don’t rock the boat. You can settle for less. Why risk it? If you make any more changes, you could lose everything! I guess I am seeing first hand how stubborn and desperate my subby can get when it feels threatened.

So for me, now’s the time to re-evaluate and get rid of many of the possessions that are cluttering up my life and the old ways of thinking that are zapping my energy.  It’s kinda scary at times, but also exhilarating.

I love this quote that I recently ran across from St. Augustine:

“A lot of truth is like a lion, you don’t have to defend it, let it loose & it will defend itself.”

So that’s all for now. See you on the other side of freedom.






A Beacon To Others

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

This is my very first post.

I started this blog to chronicle my growth as part of my journey through the MKE (Master Key Experience) training. It is my intention & sincere hope that this blog will serve as a beacon to others, bringing light to the darkness and hope to the restless. As Zig Ziglar famously said, “you can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”

I will lay it all out on the line here. No holds barred. Giving you a piece of my heart and soul. Sort of the rest of the story. Perhaps some of this content will resonate with you. If it does, I hope you will share that with me. I am very excited to get started on my journey!
