I just read a wonderful blog by James Clear which beautifully illustrates the power of observation. I relished the truth of what he shared, and my heart overflowed with gratitude for MKMMA. Self-Mastery includes mastery of the way of Observation, and forsaking the way of Opinion. I recalled scenes from The Last Samurai wherein Katsumoto, informs Col. Algren that “The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life.” Can you observe at that level? If you could, how would it serve you?
Another critical skill mastered in the Master Keys is the identification of your DMP, your Definite Major Purpose. Not only do you identify it, but you are taught the skills to create it, to bring it into your reality as the life you live.
What drives you? What is it that could cause you to LEAP out of bed each day with ENTHUSIASM, eager to get going? Samurai live the Bushido Code, two characteristics of which are Courage and Justice.
Are you doing Justice to your life purpose, to the desires of your heart? Do you have the Courage to do so?
The Master Keys is your Hero’s Journey. When you answer the Herald’s Call, you say “YES” to
being the Hero of your life, to becoming a Samurai. At that place and time, you are filled with promise and possibility. We, like Katsumoto, are, in essence, asking you, do “You believe a man can change his destiny?”, and like Algren, your inner most heart whispers back “I think a man does what he can, until his destiny is revealed.”……and then you wonder, will the Master Keys reveal mine?
In the Master Keys, you develop new habits, the habits of living a successful life. Algren describes the Samurai’s daily habits, saying “They are an intriguing people. From the moment they wake they devote themselves to the perfection of whatever they pursue. I have never seen such discipline.”
Discipline, in this context, means focusing on what matters, on what makes a difference in your life. Distractions Not Allowed!
As a Master Guide, I am a Samurai, for the meaning of the word Samurai is “to serve”. Everyone connected with the MKMMA Experience is there for one purpose, and that is to serve each member as they boldly step into their greatness.
