Silence. It’s on both sides of the coin! So how do you know if you’ve won the toss? Flip the coin. Watch it land. What does the side facing up say? SILENCE!! Turn it over. WHAT? The other side of the coin says the SAME THING!! Is this game rigged?
Not really, for there are two kinds of silence. The one, experienced on a silent retreat, feeds the soul, centers your heart, and strengthens your mind and spirit. The other permeates cultures at varying levels, stopping innovation, prolonging the practice of destructive habits, behaviors, and customs, preventing the honest sharing of ideas, the giving of forthright feedback, the deepening of relationships, and even your success, both as an individual and as a part of a greater vision or mission.
As a long term survivor of the corporate worlds of financial services and mortgage banking, I can personally attest to the damage created by a culture of silence. Management sings the song of employees being the most valuable asset of the company, and then asks you to go to a client’s home to collect a payment at 9 o’clock at night in a neighborhood that is all but locked down because of a prison riot. When I realized where I was, I pulled over, removed all of my jewelry, and then foolishly continued on ‘the mission’. [True story] The lack of trust combined with the undercurrent of anger resulting from this disconnect resonated throughout the company. That culture of silence hurt profits, destroyed careers, and encouraged small acts of defiance and rebellion. In other words, the company’s mission was sacrificed because no one believed they could speak truth to power, and live.
What has the power to shatter the culture of silence in marriages, relationships, companies, communities, and even countries? What, or who, is powerful enough to become the Caped Crusader who Kills the Silence and opens infinite possibility for good?
YOU are the WHO!! The WHAT is comprised of a set of tools which, when practiced, literally change your brain, and your mind. Mastery of them empowers you to be a GAME CHANGER on whatever level you choose. Where do you learn, and practice these skills so that you can make a difference? You do so by embarking upon your own Hero’s Journey via the road called The Great MKMMA Adventure. It’s not for wimps. Only those who want to discover their greatness and authentic power need apply. BUT, if you ARE one of those, then the Master Key Master Mind Alliance experience is for you. It is your key to a life you only dream as possible.
Here’s Mark J sharing about the course.
The exciting thing is that another course is forming this fall!
