MKE WEEK 16: Are You in It to Win It?

Week 16 of the Master Key System and Experience focuses on the Power and Law of Creation. “It’s never too late to be the person you might have been.” ― George Elliot

To Be or Not to Be? That’s one heck of question in this Pandemic.

The first six words of Hamlet’s Act III, Scene 1 soliloquy are without doubt the most famous line William Shakespeare ever wrote. It’s also one of the most recognizable quotes in the English-speaking world.

Six words.

All one syllable.

Not a single word over three letters long.

That’s the power of simplicity in action.

And simplicity in action is what this message is all about.

Whether your goals and dreams are TO BE OR NOT TO BE is solely dependent upon your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, associations and actions.

It’s as simple as that.

Untapped human potential is the greatest plague of mankind…and the quickest and easiest of all problems to solve.

On a global scale, there’s a chronic disconnect between thoughts and results. The goals that companies and individuals set for themselves far too frequently have little resemblance to the results they actually achieve.

In an effort to improve their results, most people will focus on effects and search for new ideas, strategies, and technology enhancements without ever focusing on the Universal Laws of Mind and Thought.This only succeeds in perpetuating the problem because they are looking for the solution in all the wrong places.

Here is the rub…

The #1 reason why individuals, teams and entire companies under-perform is not because of a lack of knowledge, intellect, experience, or information.

It is not because of poor cash flow.
It is not because of sub-par networking skills.
It is not because of intense competition.

While all of these factors play a part…they are not the main villain…they are merely symptoms of a much larger concern.

The primary reason and the root cause that holds people back from achieving their goals and unleashing their greatness is due to their failure to follow a very Simple Formula. A Formula which focuses on the Natural Laws of Mind and thought:

DMP + PMA + WPOA + MMA = Desired Results

This Simple Formula is a devastating competitive advantage…It is the ultimate force multiplier… It’s the reason why your dreams and goals are TO BE OR NOT TO BE.

The greatest waste of untapped resources in this world during this Pandemic are the Universal Laws, Power and Laws of thoughts, your hopes, dreams, ideas and intentions that don’t translate into purposeful results.

So what’s the solution?

We can state with the certainty of a man holding four aces… that your solution is in the Master Key System and Experience.

Improving your execution of this Simple Formula is the savviest move you can make as superior execution removes the barrier between the life you are now living and the one you are capable of living.

People can do magnificent things when they are willing to step into the arena, roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty using the Master Key System and Experience.

In Week 16the Master Key System and Experience focuses on the Power and Law to Create. It is broken down into several important areas to assure you if you are in it you will win it [whatever it may be].

[1]: Ben Franklin Kindness Virtue Makeover

The week has been very encouraging and uplifting for me personally in the Master Key System. In the Master Key Experience, we focused on the MKE-Franklin Makeover second virtue of kindness this week!   

Wow, I am finding it everywhere! I love noticing it, I love giving it and I love even more doing Random Acts of Kindness also! Knowing I made a difference in someone else’s life.

Kindness Defined: noun:  The quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.

This is not a difficult task for me, as I do this anyway, without reciprocity, but it made me try even harder.  

Best of all, we are not only focusing individually on kindness, but we are also doing so collectively.

Imagine if you will, just for a moment, what it might look like if the entire nation that we live in was part of this grand assignment that we are all blessed to be undertaking this week.

It had me thinking, how do we keep the momentum of kindness going? 

The group has witnessed and performed thousands of acts of kindness.  I feel really good being a part of this week’s group effort and feel fantastic practicing the MKE Franklin Makeover techniques with intention.

[2]: MKE Og Mandino Makeover Greatest Miracle Exercise

Og Mandino told us, multiple times a day for the past two weeks that we ARE nature’s greatest miracle! Reminding us; that we did not come here to be ordinary. We came to make a difference, for ourselves and others!

[3]: MKE Part 16 Exercise

Charles Haanel, in this week’s Master Key, has us focusing our thoughts and intentions on Harmony and Happiness.  The Master Key System tells me to try to bring myself to a realization of the important fact that Harmony and Happiness are states of consciousness and do not depend upon the possession of things.

  • Things are effects and come as a consequence of correct mental states.
  • If I desire material possession of any kind my chief concern should be to acquire the mental attitude which will bring about the result I desired.
  • This mental attitude is brought about by a realization of my spiritual nature and my unity with the Universal Mind which is the substance of all things.
  • This realization will bring about everything which is necessary for my complete enjoyment.

This is scientific or correct thinking. When I succeed in bringing about this mental attitude it is comparatively easy to realize my desire as an already accomplished fact.  When I do this, I will have found the “Truth” which makes me “free” from every lack or limitation of any kind.

[4]: MKE Part 16 Exercise: Gaining Spiritual Power and Understanding of the Natural LAWS to Get What I Want!

Law of Periodicity.

The Master Key System tells us that the activities of the Universe are governed by a Law of Periodicity. Everything that lives has periods of birth, growth, fruitage, and decline. These periods are governed by the Septimal Law.

The Law of Periodicity provides that the whole universe undergoes minor and major periodic cycles. The doctrine of constant renewal is central to the Ancient Wisdom philosophy.

The Law of Periodicity, or Law of Rhythm, states that everything in the universe has a natural cycle. The ocean tides go in and back out, night follows day, cycles of cooling follow cycles of warming, the locust come out of the earth every 17 years, even woman’s monthly premenstrual cycles are based on this phenomenon.

The Law of Periodicity manifests itself as follows: Human life on the earth plane is divided into periods of seven years.

Law of Seven

The Master Key System tells us that every “thing” that lives has periods of birth, growth, fruitage, and decline. These periods are governed by the Septimal Law.”… The Law of Seven

By applying these as 7-year cycles to our Human Life Expressions, makes it much simpler to form and Reform energy in 7-year cycles with grace, elegance, and ease so we get what we desire.

According to The Law of Seven, everything in the universe is created and sustained by vibrations — energy enlivening matter produces vibrations. 

Thoughts and feelings are vibrations, the wind rustling in the leaves is vibration, light reaching us from the sun and the stars is vibration. The whole of our life is vibration, everything that we perceive through our senses and everything we think feel and do.

The Law of Sevens governs the days of the week, the phases of the moon, the harmonies of sound, light, heat, electricity, magnetism, atomic structure. It governs the life of individuals and of nations, and it dominates the activities of the commercial world.

The Great Law Energy is. Each of the seven natural laws is a corollary to one great, overarching law: Everything is energy. In other words, we live in a kind of energy soup. Every molecule that makes up every bit of matter contains a huge amount of energy. Energy, which is essentially dimensionless, is everywhere and in everything.

Law of Seven Cycle of Life

The Master Key System tells me that life has a cycle and is growth. Growth is change.

Each seven-year period takes me into a new cycle.

  • The first seven years is the period of infancy.
  • The next seven the period of childhood, representing the beginning of individual responsibility.
  • The next seven represents the period of adolescence.
  • The fourth period marks the attainment of full growth.
  • The fifth period is the constructive period, when men begin to acquire property, possessions, a home, and family.
  • The next from 35 to 42, is a period of reactions and changes, and this in turn is
  • Followed by a period of reconstruction, adjustment, and recuperation, so as to be ready for a new cycle of sevens, beginning with the fiftieth year.

Law of Seven Cycle of Life and Hero’s Journey

Those familiar with these “Cycles of Life” will not be disturbed when things seem to go wrong. They can apply the principle outlined in the MKE lessons with the full assurance that a higher Law will invariably control all other laws, and that through an understanding and conscious operation of Spiritual Laws, we can convert every seeming difficulty into a blessing.

When people go through life changes, they will generally follow the 12 Steps and the 3 Acts found in the Hero’s Journey. The hero learns the rules of the new world and endures tests, meets friends, and comes face-to-face with enemies using these Spiritual Laws.

 A person can turn any goal into an epic adventure and become the hero of their story if they follow the 12 Stages of The Hero’s Journey and understand the 3 stages of their journey.

The 12 Stages of The Hero’s Journey are: Ordinary World. This is where the Hero’s exists before his present story begins, oblivious of the adventures to come. Call to Adventure. Refusal of The Call. Meeting the Mentor. Crossing the Threshold. Tests, Allies, Enemies. Approach to The Inmost Cave. Ordeal.

The 3 Act Approach: The initial plan to take on the central conflict begins, but setbacks occur that cause the hero to try a new approach or adopt new ideas.

Taking the Hero’s journey you can gain the character, wisdom, and strategies to change your life to where you want it, or you can lead a team to prominence. 

Spiritual Power and the Law

The Master Key System tells me that the power to create wealth or success depends entirely upon spiritual power. There are three spiritual power steps:

1. Idealization,

2. Visualization and

3. Materialization.

Every captain of industry depends upon this power exclusively.

In an article in Everybody’s Magazine, Henry M. Flagler, the Standard Oil multi-millionaire, admitted that the secret of his success was his power to see a thing in its completeness. The conversation with the reporter shows his power of Idealization, Concentration and Visualization.  All spiritual powers.

  • Do you have an actual Idealization, Concentration and Visualization of your present life and yourself [your whole life]?
  • Have you, or could you close your eyes and see your total life?
  • Do you see the events in your life?
  • Do you hear the events happening?
  • Did you go as far as that?” “Yes.” “How clearly?” “Very clearly.”

Law of Cause and Effect

The Master Key System tells me when I have a vision of my life [the law], I see “cause and effect.”

I see that thought precedes and determines action [effect].

If I am wise, I shall come into a realization of the tremendous fact that no arbitrary condition can exist for a moment.  That human experience is the result of an orderly and harmonious sequence of first thought and then result.

Thought is the plastic material with which I build images of my conception of life. Use of those thoughts determines my reality.  As in all other things my ability to recognize the Law of Cause and Effect and use it properly is the necessary condition for attainment of any and all my desires.

Law of Attraction

The Master Key System tells me the conditions with which I meet in the world without, correspond to the conditions which I find in the world within me. This is brought about by the Law of Attraction.

Application of Universal Laws

[1]: How then shall I determine what is to enter into my world [mind] within?

The Master Key System tells me whatever enters the mind through the senses, or the objective mind will impress my mind and result in a mental image which will become a pattern for the creative energies.

  • These experiences are largely the result of environment, chance, past thinking, and other forms of negative thought, and must be subjected to careful analysis before being entertained.
  • On the other hand, I can form my own mental images, through my own interior processes of thought regardless of the thoughts of others, regardless of exterior conditions, regardless of environment of every kind, and it is by the exercise of this power that I can control my destiny, body, mind, and soul.

The Master Key System tells us it is by the exercise of our spiritual power that we take our fate out of the hands of chance, and consciously make for ourselves the experiences which we desire, because when we consciously realize a condition, that condition will eventually manifest in our lives.

It is therefore evident that in the last analysis thinking is the one great cause in life. Therefore, to control your thought is to control your circumstances, conditions, environment, and destiny.

[2]: How then are we to control our thought? What is the process?

To think is to create a thought. The result of the thought will depend upon its form, its quality, and its vitality.

  • The form will depend upon the mental images from which it emanates. This will depend upon the depth of the impression, the predominance of the idea, the clarity of the vision, the boldness of the image.
  • The quality depends upon its substance, and this depends upon the material of which the mind is composed; if this material has been woven from thoughts of vigor, strength, courage, determination, the thought will possess these qualities.
  • Finally, the vitality depends upon the feeling with which the thought is impregnated. If the thought is constructive, it will possess vitality; it will have life, it will grow, develop, expand, it will be creative; it will attract to itself everything necessary for its complete development.
  •  If the thought is destructive, it will have within itself the germ of its own Dissolution. It will die, but in the process of dying, it will bring sickness, disease, and every other form of discord.

The Master Key System tells us our ability to differentiate it into form is our ability to manifest good or evil.

Good and evil therefore are not entities. They are simply thoughts and words which we use to indicate the result of our actions. These results are in turn predetermined by the character of our thought.

  • If our thought is constructive and harmonious, we manifest good.
  • If our thought is destructive and discordant, we manifest evil.

Creating Your Conditions

The Master Key System tells us if you desire to create a different environment [result], the process is simply to hold the ideal in your mind, until your vision has been made real.  

Give no thought to persons, places, or things.  These have no place in the absolute. The environment you desire will contain everything necessary; the right persons, and the right things will come at the right time and in the right place.

It is sometimes not plain how character, ability, attainment, achievement, environment and destiny can be controlled through the spiritual powers of:

1. Idealization,

2. Visualization and

3. Materialization.

But this is an exact scientific fact.

The Master Key System tells us you will readily see that what we think determines the quality of mind, and that the quality of mind in turn determines our ability and mental capacity, and you can readily understand that the improvement in our ability will naturally be followed by increase in attainment and a greater control of circumstances.

Natural Law and Creative Process

The Master Key System tells us Natural Laws work in a perfectly natural and harmonious manner; everything seems to “just happen.”

Evidence of this fact is to simply compare results of your efforts in your own life when your actions were prompted by high ideals and when you had selfish or ulterior motives in mind. You will need no further evidence.

If you wish to bring about the realization of any desire,

  • Form a mental picture of success in your mind, by consciously visualizing your desire; in this way you will be compelling success, you will be externalizing it in your life by scientific methods.

We can only see what already exists in the objective world. What we visualize,already exists in the spiritual world.

This visualization is a substantial token of what will one day appear in our objective world if we are faithful to our ideal.

The reason for this is not difficult.

Visualization is a form of imagination. This process of thinking forms impressions on the mind. These impressions in turn form concepts and ideals. They in turn are the plans from which the Master architect will weave the future.

The psychologists have concluded that there is but one sense, the sense of feeling, and that all other senses are but modifications of this one sense.

This being true, we know why feeling is the very fountain head of our power, why our emotions so easily overcome our intellect, and why we must put feeling into our thought, if we wish results.

Thought and feeling is the irresistible combination.

Visualization must, of course, be directed by the will.  

We are to visualize exactly what we want. We must be careful not to let the imagination run riot.

Imagination is a good servant but a poor master. Unless it is controlled it may easily lead us into all kinds of speculations and conclusions which have no basis or foundation of fact whatever.

Every kind of plausible opinion is liable to be accepted without any analytical examination and the inevitable result is mental chaos.

We must therefore construct only such mental images as are known to be scientifically true.

Subject every idea to a searching analysis and accept nothing which is not scientifically exact.

When you do this, you will attempt nothing but what you know you can carry out and success will crown your efforts. This is what businessmen call far-sightedness. It is much the same as insight and is one of the great secrets of success in all important undertakings.

Wealth Creation Under the Laws

The Master Key System tells us that wealth is a product of labor. Capital is an effect, not a cause, a servant, not a master, a means, not an end. The most commonly accepted definition of wealth is that it consists of all useful and agreeable things which possess exchange value. It is this exchange value which is the predominant characteristic of wealth.

When we consider the small addition made by wealth to the happiness of the possessor, we find that the true value consists not in its utility but in its exchange.

This exchange value makes it a medium for securing the things of real value whereby our ideals may be realized. Wealth should then never be desired as an end, but simply as a means of accomplishing an end.

Success Creation Under the Laws

The Master Key System tells us that Success is contingent upon a higher ideal than the mere accumulation of riches, and he who aspires to such success must formulate an ideal for which he is willing to strive.  With such an ideal in mind, the ways and means can and will be provided, but the mistake must not be made of substituting the means for the end. There must be a definite fixed purpose, an ideal.

Prentice Mulford said: “The man of success is the man possessed of the greatest spiritual understanding and every great fortune comes of superior and truly spiritual power.”

Unfortunately, there are those who fail to recognize this power. They forget that Andrew Carnegie’s mother had to help support the family when they came to America.  That Harriman’s father was a poor clergyman with a salary of only $200.00 a year.  That Sir Thomas Lipton started with only 25 cents. These men had no other power to depend upon, but spiritual understanding. It did not fail them.


From my MKE Week 16 exercises I learned to bring myself to a realization that harmony and happiness are states of consciousness.

  • They do not depend upon the possession of things.
  • That things are effects and come as a consequence of correct mental states.
  • If I desire material possession of any kind my chief concern should be to acquire the mental attitude which will bring about the result I desire.
  • This mental attitude is brought about by my realization of my spiritual nature and my unity with the Universal Mind which is the substance of all things.
  • This realization will bring about everything which is necessary for my complete enjoyment. This is scientific or correct thinking.
  • When I succeed in bringing about this mental attitude it is comparatively easy to realize my desire as an already accomplished fact.
  • When I can do this, I shall have found the “Truth” which makes me “free” from every lack or limitation of any kind in my life.


Mark Twain, who said…

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
