 “PREFACE

Charles Haanel wrote The Master Key System a century ago, and it still remains the gold standard in personal development and self-help. All modern self-help experts can trace their teachings back to Charles and the Master Key System, including Napoleon Hill, W. Clement Stone, and Norman Vincent Peal. In fact, The Master Key
System was the basis for the best-selling movie and book The Secret.

The Master Key System is all about success. Whether you want to start a business, lose weight, or improve relationships, the Master Key System will help. To be blunt, it’s up to you to determine what success means to you! By studying this book you will learn the secrets that will:
* Allow you to completely eliminate fear and worry from your life.
* Unlock you hidden potential, developing self-confidence and power.
* Become a magnet that attracts people, resources, and events that create success.
* Move you towards your goals and dreams.
* Think constructively and systematically.
* Learn to control your mind and emotions.
* Draw health, abundance, and success to yourself like a magnet.
* Learn to live harmoniously, eliminating problems and chaos.
* Develop the “millionaire mindset” that will help you earn and accumulate more money.”

At this point, you might be asking yourself…

“WHAT’S THIS #MKMMA (MASTER KEY MASTERMIND ALLIANCE) AKA #MKE (MASTER KEY EXPERIENCE) I’VE BEEN HEARING SO MUCH ABOUT?”

Having become a certified guide myself this year, this is what one of my personal guides last year has to say about it:

“The Master Key Experience taught me to shed my old skin, kind of like a dermabrasion or a facemask process.  It was an all natural facelift as I feel ages younger and better than ever before.  Now, how does a personal development course do all that?  I still don’t know.  I am just grateful for the opportunity to be guided on a journey to self discovery.  So grateful am I to have skills which turned my life upside down, that I became a certified guide in 2014 to assist and provide hands-on support to future members as they take part in their own discovery process.

Your Reflection

Take a look in your reflection, who do you see?  We’ve all thought about things at one point or another.  Changes we wanted to make in our life.  Things we wanted to get done.  Improvements we wanted to implement.  We spend each December agonizing over our New Year’s Resolution, and then each February kicking ourselves for having quit.

The Master Key Experience is a personal development course that makes every day possible to achieve each resolution with success that is effortless.  Don’t wanna take my word for it?  That’s cool.  The course starts up again in September, and it’s only a buck (yes, that’s $1 USD) to get your pay-it-forward scholarship.  #There is nothing like it!”

So, while you wait, check out the free skills on a positive mental attitude.  Type in your first name and email address in the boxes below the ones with the arrows, and they are yours (In addition to MASTER KEY SYSTEM, which I will ALSO send to you).

In either case, I will make sure to put you on the early notification short list for the next program beginning in September.

STAY THE COURSE

Last week is the week MKMMA members focused on Master Key Lesson 15 by Charles Haanel, which points out that:

“20. We know that the Universal Thought has for its goal the creation of form, and we know that the individual thought is likewise forever attempting to express itself in form, and we know that the word is a thought form, and a sentence is a combination of thought forms, therefore, if we wish our ideal to be beautiful or strong, we must see that the words out of which this temple will eventually be created are exact, that they are put together carefully, because accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success.”

WORDS

Therefore, what better time to look back at…

Words from the past, our childhood…

Heavens to Murgatroyd!

Would you believe the email spell checker did not recognize the word murgatroyd?

Lost Words from our childhood:

Words gone as fast as the buggy whip! Sad really! The other day a not so elderly (65) lady said something to her son about driving a Jalopy and he looked at her quizzically and said what the heck is a Jalopy? OMG (new phrase!) he never heard of the word jalopy!!

So they went to the computer and pulled up a picture from the movie “The Grapes of Wrath.” Now that was a Jalopy!

JALOPY IN GRAPES OF WRATH

She knew she was old but not that old…

I hope you are Hunky dory after you read this and chuckle…

*WORDS AND PHRASES REMIND US OF THE WAY WE WORD*                                     by Richard Lederer

About a month ago, I illuminated some old expressions that have become obsolete because of the inexorable march of technology. These phrases included “Don’t touch that dial,” “Carbon copy,” “You sound like a broken record” and “Hung out to dry.” A bevy of readers have asked me to shine light on more faded words and expressions, and I am happy to oblige:

Back in the olden days we had a lot of moxie. We’d put on our best bib and tucker and straighten up and fly right.

Hubba-hubba! We’d cut a rug in some juke joint and then go necking and petting and smooching and spooning and billing and cooing and pitching woo in hot rods and jalopies in some passion pit or lovers lane.lovers-lane-beata-sasik

LOVER'S LANE

Heavens to Betsy!  Gee whillikers!  Jumping Jehoshaphat!

Holy moley!

We were in like Flynn and living the life of Riley, and even a regular guy couldn’t accuse us of being a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill. Not for all the tea in China!

Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when’s the last time anything was swell?

Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A.; of spats, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes and pedal pushers.

Oh, my aching back. Kilroy was here, but he isn’t anymore.

Like Washington Irving’s Rip Van Winkle and Kurt Vonnegut’s Billy Pilgrim, we have become unstuck in time. We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap,

rip-van-winkle

and before we can say, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle! or This is a fine kettle of fish! We discover that the words we grew up with, the words
that seemed omnipresent as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and our keyboards.

Poof, poof, poof go the words of our youth, the words we’ve left behind. We blink, and they’re gone, evanesced from the landscape and wordscape of our perception, like Mickey Mouse wristwatches, hula hoops, skate keys, candy cigarettes, little wax bottles of colored sugar water and an organ grinders monkey.

MICKEY MOUSE

Where have all those phrases gone? Long time passing. Where have all those phrases gone?

Long time ago: Pshaw.

The milkman did it.

Think about the starving Armenians.

Bigger than a bread box.

Banned in Boston.

The very idea!

It’s your nickel.

Don’t forget to pull the chain.

Knee high to a grasshopper.IRON CURTAIN

Turn-of-the-century.

Iron curtain.

Domino theory.

Fail safe.

Civil defense.

Fiddlesticks!

You look like the wreck of the Hesperus.WRECK OF THE HESPERIDES

Cooties.

Going like sixty.

I’ll see you in the funny papers.

Don’t take any wooden nickels.

Heavens to Murgatroyd!

And awa-a-ay we go!HONEY MOONERS

Oh, my stars and garters!

The Katz Pajamas

It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter had liver pills.

This can be disturbing stuff, this winking out of the words of our youth, these words that lodge in our heart’s deep core. But just as one never steps into the same river twice, one cannot step into the same language twice.

Even as one enters, words are swept downstream into the past, forever making a different river.

We of a certain age have been blessed to live in changeful times. For a child each new word is like a shiny toy, a toy that has no age. We at the other end of the chronological arc have the advantage of remembering there are words that once did not exist and there were words that once strutted their hour upon the earthly stage and now are heard no more, except in our collective memory. It’s one of the greatest advantages of aging. We can have archaic and eat it, too.

See ya later, alligatorSEE YOU
