In order to create lasting change, you must work from the inside out.
Creating lasting change means you must become aware of what you think, what you believe, what you feel, and your actions based on those feelings to bring about a different outcome.
The week 1 Master Key Lesson explains it this way.
- There is a world within – a world of thought and feeling and power; of light and life
and beauty and, although invisible, its forces aremighty.
- The world within is governed by mind. When we discover this world we shall find the
solution for every problem, the cause for every effect; and since the world within is
subject to our control, all laws of power and possession are also within our control.
- The world without is a reflection of the world within. What appears without is whathas been found within. In the world within may be found infinite Wisdom, infinite Power,infinite Supply of all that is necessary, waiting for unfoldment, development andexpression. If we recognize these potentialities in the world within they will take form inthe worldwithout.
I would get so excited at first that I had finally found the answer I was looking for with a list of actions I can take but because those new actions never got to the root I only experienced temporary relief but if I was having a stressful day those new ways became too uncomfortable and my old way of thinking and acting would kick in and I’d go back to doing what is comfortable even though I didn’t like the results it produced.
At first, I thought it was just me, that I just wasn’t good enough, I need more willpower but I soon learned it is every human being that follows the same pattern. The Master keys gave me the power to break that pattern and get to the root of the problem, my thoughts.
If you are feeling stuck in a destructive cycle of thinking, believing, and acting you are not alone, without the proper tools you will continue to be stuck until you make the decision to learn and practice going deep into yourself. When you become curious about your feelings, good or bad you can process them in a healthy way which will bring about the lasting changes your heart has longed for.
It brings tears to my eyes when I think back at how many years I suffered trying to change failing feeling an overwhelming sense of guilt and shame and now discover that I had the power with myself to change I was just never given the tools to access that power.
I can remember many Monday nights, I would get nervous while preparing for a speech at our Tuesday morning Toastmaster meeting, I would get bombarded with negative thoughts that my speech would fall on deaf ears, I would forget the key points and that made me very so nervous I would not sleep very well that night.
After feeling this way a couple of times I realized I never really dealt with the root of why I was so nervous. The only way I overcame my nervousness was to ask myself why I was so nervous and I learned to shift my thoughts from thinking about failing and reminded myself the audience does not know what I am speaking about.
I also learned to view my speech as a gift I was giving to my audience and this totally changed the way I prepared for future speeches and after each talk, I received raving reviews.
This is my 6th time going through the Master Key Experience course and I am so excited to share this experience with the hope to inspire you to take this course in the future. There is no other course that has given me the power to make lasting change in my life and I am the person I am today by doing inner work.
I will be sharing my experience each week and I am open to speaking with anyone who would like to develop these skills and create lasting change in their life. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
