MKE Week 1 – A New Chapter In My Life Begins And It’s Growing On Me

minutes remaining

A week ago, when I first heard about the Master Key Experience with Mark & Davene, I was not sure I could commit to a six month-long program. As I weighed my decision to join, I had visions of both failure and success with this class.

One minute I could already see and feel the pride in myself for completing the program many months from now. The next minute, I was back to depressing thoughts of getting bored with the daily tasks, not getting them done and losing my scholarship.

This last part got me thinking about how deep and quickly those dang negative emotions cut through everything good I was considering. I mean, here I was not even in the program yet and already I was thinking thoughts about something bad happening!

It was then that I decided it was now or never to reach out for help in making permanent changes so my life could be mine again!

So, while I still had time to apply for a PIF scholarship on the Thursday before class began, I hit that submit button. I crossed my fingers and toes that I would get in.

And I did! I let out a huge breath of relief when I got the email saying I had landed a spot.

Now that I was officially in, I eagerly prepared for the first call, organized all the print outs, binders, index cards and colored pencils. I even borrowed my daughter’s pencil case so I wouldn’t lose anything. And here I was, in my early 40s and back in school!

On the day of the call, nerves took over and doubt clouded my thoughts all day. Would this be like so many times before where I begin strong, burn out then quit? I was not looking forward to those little thoughts and I pushed them away quickly. Over and over again, I reminded myself why I wanted to join Master Key Experience and gradually all the doubt fell away.

I’ve been in for a few days now, doing the daily steps in order as instructed. And you know what? Something amazing has happened. I really notice that things are beginning to shift and it’s so awesome to see.

Here are a few of the biggies… I feel myself more present with my children, I’m listening better with everyone in my family, I’ve stopped checking social media posts all times of the day, I’m not procrastinating nearly as much, and I’m doing more income producing activities with all of my online businesses.

Wow, if this is the results of just my FIRST week, I can not wait to see what’s going to happen as the course goes on. Will be back to report more on that in my next blog post.

  • Shows the power of decision and how one choice can make a huge difference! (Bet you are now really happy that you didn’t let the old programming win!) Congratulations Sarah, for the win!

  • Bravo Sarah!! Congrats on saying Yes! to your Hero’s journey and embracing the first steps. I recall having very similar rollercoaster of emotions as I started the MKE back in 2016. I can absolutely confirm that the mental wrestling is worth it- the skills we learn can be applied right away and to all aspects of our lives. Thrilled to hear you already feel more present with your children = this is proof you are being the Observer. Cheering you on every step of the way!
    P.S. Great smile in your profile picture!

  • Congratulations on your blog and getting a scholarship. Great job at starting to chip off the cement!

  • Wow, Miss Sarah, thank you for sharing with us. Great to have you here and I am looking forward to seeing you grow from within to without. See you at the top.

  • So glad you’re here Sarah, and already seeing the benefits of being a ‘self-directed thinker’. My first year was over-whelming because I had a lot of cement to chip off, but like you, I quickly became AWARE of the self-imposed limitations that were being released as I continued to do the work. Some of the exercises and daily tasks may seem foreign right now, but it is so worth it when you start having the break-throughs that take you, and the people around you, by surprise. I am so proud of you for DECIDING to join the MKE, and to do the work on yourself that ‘most people’ will never do. Enjoy your Hero’s Journey.

  • Absolutely right Elena. Sarah is the Facebook Friend that we talked about, and I am honored and humbled to be the one that ‘opened the door’ to The MKE…and Proud of Sarah for walking through that door to her real self.

  • I got chills when I read your post, Sarah. The changes start happening immediately.. it’s amazing. I love this. Thank you for sharing!

  • Hi Sarah, So exciting you already see the shifts taking place for you. You have started your journey, congratulations

  • What an awesome blog Sarah and what a fantastic first week. You will notice a difference for sure and you will wonder where they came from?

  • Thank you Sarah for sharing your marvelous start! I am excited to continue reading about your awesome journey with the Master Key Experience.

  • Great job Sarah. Thank you for sharing your experience in just a few short days. You are definitely at the right place at the right time.

  • Sarah…I am so glad you are here on this journey. Your evidence is strong and should be applauded. Keep facing forward, moving through the terror barrier of doubt, because there is so much more on the other side. ♥️

  • Way to go Sarah taking that step and joining this year’s class. Way to jump in on completing the daily habits. Keep up the great work.

  • Congratulations, Sarah, on getting your spot and on submitting your first blog. That pesky cement sure likes to taunt us, doesn’t it? Keep up the good work and watch more miracles happen.
