Master Key Week 15 – The Impact of a Mentor

I struggle with how much of “me” to put into these public blogs. I struggle with what to say that is relevant and uplifting. Back in 1991, I worked for a guy named Kyle Brown in Albuquerque, NM at a store named BizMart, which got bought by Office Max in 1992. Kyle was the kind…

Master Key Week 14 – Surrounded by…

  I’ve been out in the middle of the ocean for over two weeks off the Mexican Yucatan peninsula. It’s an unusual experience because so far, I have done very little work. Most days are spent in the same conference room waiting for the Mexican crew to start drilling. I would like to say I’m…

Master Key Week 13 – Santa’s Lesson?

I’m leaving tomorrow to go offshore; Ciudad Del Carmen, Mexico on the northern side of the Yucatan Peninsula. Not a vacation, work. So we opened my Christmas presents last night for Melanie’s benefit. Afterwards I was feeling pretty happy and was reflecting on how life has twists and turns. I was feeling a little frisky and…

Master Key Week 12 – The Law of Growth

I’ve been reading the Seven Laws of the Mind for several weeks now. I’m constantly reminding Kimberly about the Law of Substitution or the Law of Dual Thought when she’s pissed off. It seems to fit. I’ve also know for a couple years from watching “The Secret” that any attitude you express must be positive;…

Master Key Week 11 – Visualize the Dream

Last year, I was on the Maersk Valliant drill ship.  I got onboard the ship in Curacao and rode it all the way to the coast of Louisiana.  It was my first time on a deep sea drill ship.  The ship was as big as the Carnival Dream, which I have been on.  Not as much…

Master Key Week 10 – A New Look at an old Blueprint

I have spent this entire week trying to get caught up before I go back offshore next week. It’s a real challenge to stay in perfect harmony, but I will persist until I succeed. Doing my press release this week was a real eye-opener.   Back in 2008, I was living an hour east of Raleigh,…

Master Key Week 9 -What the bleep…

I’ve heard of the movie “What the Bleep do we know!?” for quite some time.  Jerry Clark (clubrhino.com) interviewed the Producer of the movie, Mark Vicente, back in 2006 for an audiobook I listened to last year.  I still haven’t seen the whole movie, but the clip hit me differently this time. Everyone has a…

Master Key Week 8 – Subtle Changes

I am much more aware these days.  I don’t know if it’s the total life change I’ve undergone in the last 8 months or the fact MKMMA has made me more cognizant of my world within, but either way I notice a lot of things more readily these days. Just a few minutes ago I…

Master Key Week 7 – Restart

Travel is tough.  Constantly moving around, city to city, place to place.  I travel professionally to offshore oil rigs.  It takes me about a week before I really feel connected to the time zone again.  Maybe it’s part of getting older or just road weary, but it’s a real challenge to stay focused. This week…

Master Key Week 6 – I will greet this day…

This journey has already been tremendous in many ways. I started the week off the coast of Mexico on an oil rig.  Getting off the rig was the problem.  The weather was bad the day I was ready to leave, so I sat around all day for a helicopter that never came.  The following day,…

MKMMA Week 5 – Sinking In!?!

Week 5 started off pretty good. (By the end of the week I was in Mexico working offshore)  Kimberly and I sat down together and worked on our DMP’s and other MKMMA tasks.  I’m pretty happy with my DMP, although my certified guide will probably tell me there’s no sacrifice in my 400 words. It’s…

MKMMA Week 4 – The Path Less Traveled

I’m still battling my old blueprint.  It’s mostly that I have no control over my schedule and can’t seem to figure out a way to be consistently in perfect harmony.  There’s simply too many outside pressures.  I know it’s an excuse and I’m trying to get my head around the concept of taking control of my…
