Week 1 – My thoughts on Master Key Mastermind Alliance Experience
My name is Julie Ebanks – student for the next 6 months. Below are my thoughts on my first week on the MKMMA course.
Wow was my initial reaction – what a lot of information to take in. I felt overwhelmed, scared, excited and nervous all at the same time and thinking can I do this. Its been a very long time since I was a student. How will it affect me over the next 6 months?
Priority I knew I had to get myself organised. Felt slightly at ease once I’d printed off the paperwork and placed them in the folders.
I was chomping at the bit to read the Greatest Salesman (So I read up to page 14). I did not go any further when I saw the video with Mark emphasising do not read the scrolls. Blast!! I was itching to continue but managed to contain myself.
However, I found it was very interesting observing my own behaviour when I decided to sit down to write my DMP, and the thoughts going around in my head. i.e. Maybe I should start on it later, what can I have to eat. Maybe I should call my friend. I think I’d watch some TV.
I found myself thinking ‘DIG IN Don’t let the ego win’.
So far I have felt comfortable settling into my reading routine. (I love reading anyway). I‘ve always found the following trait interesting. With each repetition of reading, there was always a sentence or paragraph that stood out and I would think to myself I don’t remember reading that section and why did it stand out??
I loved the exercise of sitting still for 15 – 30 minutes after reading the Master Key. I was surprised at how well I completed this exercise. It was peaceful and relaxing, I felt connected to the energy around me. When I opened my eyes Maxi and Tango (my cats) were looking at me rather perplexed. I had to laugh when I saw the look on their faces.
When I read and heard that one of the tasks was to set up Twitter and Blog I could feel the resistance rise within me because I am a very private person. I have never felt comfortable being on Facebook . So for me it is ‘hanging out your laundry of smalls for all to see’. I realised I had been used to ‘hiding’ and it made me feel vulnerable – Ironic, as I am a people person. Another lesson the universe is showing me about myself. Time to come out into the light – the cement is definitely being chipped away.
I have also noticed a subtle increase in synchronicity, just little things but situations that seem to fall nicely into place just when it’s needed.
All in all enjoying the experience of going into study mode, and looking forward to the next webinar.
