Here it is … Week 5 of the MKE.
Mark has noted that it is about at this point where people either dedicate themselves 100% to the program or opt to leave with no hard feelings. I will be upfront and say that I have decided to join the latter group.
For personal reasons, I am withdrawing from the program. And, no, it has nothing to do with the ‘pay-it-forward’ decision by the group. I laud that idea and support the concept of making the training available to others who may benefit from it through the financial contributions of current participants.
My reasons have nothing to do with this plan. And I will not be discussing my reasons in this blog entry. As noted, it’s personal.
However, I am not leaving feeling any animosity towards the Master Key Mastermind Alliance. Indeed, over the past five weeks, I have learned some extremely valuable concepts that will definitely help me as I move forward in life.
I have known about the use of SMART goals for quite a while. I suspect many of us have. But knowing about the idea and implementing it are two different things. Thanks to the MKMMA, I am committed to implementing the SMART goals strategy into my goal-planning sessions. It’s been a real wake-up call in this regard.
The use of the recipe cards to peg the mind to what we wish to achieve and to accept the small achievements as steps along the way to greater accomplishments is brilliant! No one has ever shared this idea with me before. It is definitely entering my toolbox for self-improvement skills. If you are not in the MKMMA and wonder what the heck I’m talking about, ask and I’ll explain it a bit more.
Basically, it involves using a series of recipe cards to note goals, chores and things you’d like to accomplish, and attaching simple geometric shapes and colours to those things. Then, when you see those colours and shapes when you are out and about, it will trigger your memory and commitment to the associated goals or chores.
It is a tool I see myself using for a long time to come.
One thing I am doing with it is I am creating separate cards for each shape and colour. On those cards, I will note everything that is associated with that specific colour. I think this will help me to better recall and relate each coloured shape to specific goals and promises.
And The Greatest Salesman in the World? What can I say? I’ve known about the book for years. I even had a copy once when I was involved with a network marketing company. But I never used it as it should be used. The MKMMA really opened my eyes to show me what a great resource this book is and I will continue to use it as prescribed in the writings themselves.
If you want to change your life and would like a bit of a guide to help you along the way, I recommend this book. Read it, but do so as it describes and read each scroll multiple times before moving on. It’s in the rereading that so many truths and concepts are finally grasped.
And so I come to the end of my brief involvement with the MKMMA. I have nothing but best wishes for all involved and I believe those who are carrying on will accomplish amazing things in their lives.
This does not mean the end of this blog, however! I will continue to be here, writing and sharing as we all travel through this life together.
Keeping it real!
