Week 9 Changed Everything….oh, the possibilities


It’s not easy promising people a “pay-off” that will insure success in any venture they attempt.   For a lot of reasons.

1] It sounds like magic…which triggers doubt.

2] If it doesn’t work, for everybody, you lose trust and are dead in the water.

3] It is a prediction about the future outcome, always shakey ground

The list could go on and on but there are reasons we decided to do it, to promise everybody that if they would do just 4 simple things, make them habits, they would have something that guarantees success in any and all ventures, business or personal, as long as it was inline with point 5 of the blueprint builder …that it was inline with the Universal and benefitted all the lives it touched.

And, really, of the 4 things we are doing during this “progression” the most challenging is the Mental Diet.   Until Lesson 9.   Once I read, studied and lived Lesson 9, I realized there was no risk at all, not really.

The “pay-off” to the progression is a slam dunk…anybody who has “it” does succeed at the things they undertake, 100% of the time.   The risk part, really, was successfully running together 7 days without a negative thought.

My pal, Charlie

And Charlie, [Charles Haanel], spelled it out for us in sections 27 & 28, BAM!

27. Man is the sum total of his own thoughts; so the question is, how are we going to entertain only the good thoughts and reject the evil ones? At first we can’t keep the evil thoughts from coming, but we can keep from entertaining them. The only way to do this is to forget them — which means, get something for them. This is where the ready-made affirmation comes into play.

28. When a thought of anger, jealousy, fear or worry creeps in, just start your affirmation going. The way to fight darkness is with light — the way to fight cold is with heat — the way to overcome evils is with good. For myself, I never could find any help in denials. Affirm the good, and the bad will vanish. – Frederick Elias Andrews


The tears streamed from my eyes, good one.   I knew all members could be successful at the mental diet, a pre-requisite for getting the pay-off to the progression…but it was never about me and my belief.   Would they believe it?  27 & 28 were the answer…sort of.

It was the “action” expressed in those two thoughts that let me know they could all believe in naviagting the mental diet…but the tears came from me understanding what I had just read in 25…connecting to my core understanding of Emerson’s Law of Compensation, give more, get more.

25. Not only did I affirm it for myself, but for others that I knew needed it. I want to emphasize this point. Whatever you desire for yourself, affirm it for others, and it will help you both. We reap what we sow. If we send out thoughts of love and health, they return to us like bread cast upon the waters; but if we send out thoughts of fear, worry, jealousy, anger, hate, etc., we will reap the results in our own lives.

And I bawled like a baby, really.  Right there on the kitchen table, sobbing uncontrollabley like a child …and feeling better by the second.   Had it finally happened?  Had all these lofty thoughts come together at once?   Had I discovered the real path to abundance earlier but simply not recognized it?




This is a form of paying-it-forward, blessing others…wanting, really wanting the best for each and every person.   The possibilities are really endless, are they not?

There is no logical end to the ripple effect of giving without expectation of reciprocity, none what-so-ever.

A tiny, tiny gesture, if it comes from the heart has no logical end to the good that it can do.    One of our Certified Guides, John Kennedy, shared this with me a very short time ago…notice the “no logical end” idea….including someone sharing it with John, me sharing it with you and, who knows? We’ve got something special here with the Master Key Experience because while this will “move” you…unlike the majority of the public, it won’t shock or surprise you…you’re already doing it!

With your heart and give, this week off, this affirmation ““I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy” from Lesson 9 with your heart as many times as humanly possible….so you can create endless possibilities in the lives of others….and let me know how it feels and, hey, observe how the universe responds…..I’d love to know.


keep giving to keep growing

    Thanks so much for everything Mark.

  • Sharon Wiginton says:

    I love paying it forward!

  • Thank you Mark for putting the current readings even once more in perspective. The seven (magical number) affirmations are another grove in the key that matters very much. I looked at the meaning of all seven words and they have all the building blocks for our body mind and soul to say with confidence “I can be what I will to be”. Another thought from the exercise came to my mind and that is that I have the desire to plant a seed, that I can follow with its progression, having nature also teach me patience and the skill of observation for detail. I also like the thought of the plants developing the roots in the world within while the plant slowly develops in the world without. I am very grateful for everything that is currently happening and providing all these fabulous lessons for me / us to learn from and create what we were given the freedom to do, provided we listen to the heart. Thanks again to you, the fabulous Davene and the awesome experts that you have attracted.
