Week 10 – Start Over

start over

This entry is coming straight from my heart.   Throughout our life we come to a crossroad where we can give up or continue and push through the hard times.  The best part about this time is that we can start over is we failed to get it right the first time.   Failure should be embraced and looked upon as a tool for success.  In order to become successful when must learn how to fail and what not to do.

When I was younger, the moment I failed I hung my head low in shame.  I really disliked to fail doing something.  Now I get frustrated however, I’ve come to realize that in order to succeed, failure is a necessary evil.  The reason that I call it by that name is because without learning from failing we would never have the opportunity to truly enjoy success.   Think about it for a second.  If all we did was win, how could we know what it felt like to handle defeat?  Now turn that around, if we experience losing, when we win, we can enjoy the spoils of winning.

Please understand that along with becoming successful, losing is part of the recipe.  The major question to ask yourself is are you willing to start over in order to win.


Week 9 – Grabbing The Wheel

Some people think that you can jump into something without a plan and make it to your destination.  I was one of those people for most of my life.   Until I realized that where I always wanted to go, I never made it.  So things aren’t taught to everyone; or the person providing the education doesn’t have the knowledge to enlighten you with the correct map to your required destination.  If life you can’t jump on the computer and type in google maps and input where you would like to go and 2 seconds later have step by step instructions to your destination.  In life you have to find the right guide and grab the wheel.

When I speak on grabbing the wheel in your life, I’m talking being in control of where you are driving yourself in the future.  I can only speak about my journey and hope that it will make sense to you while on yours.  The first step to get to where you want to go is by grabbing the wheel and controlling the direction in which you travel.  Without grabbing the wheel you will allow outside forces steer the direction of your life.  I don’t know about you, however when I allowed others to dictate the direction of my life I wasn’t happy.  We were all born to live a happy life and it up to each person to take control and steer themselves to the destination of choice.

By grabbing the wheel, you tell your subconscious that you know where you want to travel.  After looking over my life and realizing where it was I wanted to go, I was able to map out a plan to follow until I arrive to my destination in life.  I encourage everyone that reads this blog to Grab the Wheel and control where the car (your life) will end up.  We can become whatever we will to be.  The key to success is getting started and Grabbing the Wheel of life.

Week 8 – Shine From Within

As youth we were taught to change our surroundings in order to change our reality.  This was very hard for me to achieve.  Trying to change the outer realm without the proper training was a never-ending battle in my life.  The choices I made seemed to only make things worse.  Focusing on the things that made me unsuccessful only brought the same results into my life for 37 years of my life.  Like the old saying goes, “Doing the same thing over expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.”  I had to do something different in order to change my life.

So I decided to change what I was doing in order to achieve a different outcome.  I enrolled in the Master Keys with Mark and Davene Januszewski.  For the past 8 weeks I started to work on ways to change my belief system and my bad habits that kept me in limbo.  At first I thought that I would find a quick fix to my situation.  What I found was the root of the problem on why my situation never changed.  Believing that I could change the world that I lived in without changing my world between my ears were the lessons taught to me.

What a mind-blowing experience thus far.  The child like exercises have brought out the kid inside of me.  That’s part of the reason for my success in this course thus far, I’m enjoying the process of learning.  When I had the moment when things clicked within, I started to shine from within and lit up the world around me.

Please stay tuned for more information on my journey and find out when you would be able to partake on this journey as well in the future.

Week 7 – Let’s Give Up!

Week 7 – Let’s Give Up!

When I say let’s quit now, what’s comes to your mind?  Most likely you are thinking stop what is causing you problems to complete.  That was the same think I thought when my mentor Mark J made this statement on one of our webinars.  However, he later explained that there are 2 type of people in this world.  Those who will see this phrase and give up and those who will stop making excuses and get it do.  Nike says it best, “Just do it!”    I’m following the latter.  No more excuses for me, my mind is made up.  That’s the first step of recreating your mental blueprint.  Understanding that we have the power of choice.   Whatever you read will trigger the subconscious to produce the feeling that was programmed within it.  We can control what we plant in our subconscious therefore, what is harvested once it matures.  With that being said, I challenge you to think about what you hear before you take action.  When you make a conscious effort to make an intelligent choice, great things will occur.


After reflecting on this one power statement I wondered, what else am I reading and immediately having negative thoughts about?  What about you?  Is this happening to you as well?  Here’s an example that I would like to share with you.  The word FAILURE.  What comes to mind when you read it?  Be honest with yourself.  Before my journey with the MKMMA group only negative things came to mind.  However, now I realize that I should embrace failures because now I’m able to see where I made a mistake, now it is up to me to correct it, hence learn from it.  Wow, did you just catch that?  I hope so.  We choose the way we look at things.  Now it’s up to you to embrace your journey in life and Quit Now!

Week 6 – The Knock at The Door


Week 6 was a very trying week for me.   My old blueprint tried his very best to take over my life.  Telling me to give up and stop trying to change who I am.  I almost listened to the old blueprint.  I figured out that in my life when I’m on the verge of change I tend to move back to the bad habits that I had.  Not this time in my life.  By understand how your subconscious works and why it’s so hard to change your way of thinking, I’m going to meet this challenge with the proper weapons for battle.  This is a battle for my life.  A battle to create who I dream of becoming.


The way we feel, act, think and surround ourselves with; creates the person that we will become.  I can be what I will to be.  This is a fact and anyone can become what they truly want to become in life if they do the right things.  There are some many examples in the world to choose from.  Your favorite sports athlete want to become great in that sport so they put in countless hours of practice to get where they are at in the particular sport.  They trained their muscles and mind to become the best that they could be.  There is no different with our minds.  We have to put in the countless hours of practice to create what our Personal Pivotal Needs are.  It not an easy undertaking to say the least.  However, it will be worth every single second of the work that you put in.


There are always things in life that you look at and say this shouldn’t be here.  Like the rose that grow out of the concrete.   Our mind are as beautiful as Rose’s and more powerful than any computer that was created.  We must tap into the power and release it the correct way in order to create the life that was promised to each and every one of us when we were born into this world.  Never give up when the going gets hard.  Look at it as a test of the mental strength in side of you.  Embrace the challenges and become stronger than before once you make it pass that obstacle and wait on the next one to formulate and challenge you.


We are more powerful than most of us know we are. Once you tap into your subconscious and exercise it correctly, the power will be yours to create whatever you desire.  If you are reading this blog, I pray that you don’t let your old blueprint dictate who and what you dream on becoming.

Week 5 – When Your Subby Talks You Better Listen

Living in a world where there are so many distractions it’s hard to focus on what actually good for us.  Growing up around people that was focus on taking and not giving left an imprint on my subconscious that I wasn’t aware of.  Bad habits were created that I believed were right.  It wasn’t until I started to question my beliefs that I realized I was walking around in circles.

I’ve been involved with the MKMMA group for 5 weeks now and I’m learning to access the power of the subconscious to guide me to the future that are directly tied to who I was born to be.  Do it now and I can be what I will to be, are the chants I hear daily whispering in my ear.  I remember when I was about 12 years old and I would hear voices in my head instructing me to do a certain action.  Never did I tell anyone because of the reaction I thought I would get from others.  Now I realize that it was my subconscious helping me along my path.

The key to a healthy subconscious are the seeds you plant.  If you plant bad seeds follow bad instructions.  We as people tend to focus on the things that we try to do instead on allow the great power in the universe to provide the blueprint.  When you truly know what you want for yourself whatever it may be, plant the seed in your subconscious and allow it to provide the path to success.  There’s no magical spell to make this happen.  The power comes from the conscious mind, which is the gate keeper of the mind.  The subconscious reinforce what is planted and uses the universe to guide us to the harvest.

When we try to change the life we live most people try to control and change body.  The body is just the vessel and not us.  The mind control everything.  So why not listen to the subby when it talks?  I believe it’s ok to listen as long as you plant the proper seeds to harvest.  Listen to that little voice in your head that tells you to pursue your dreams.  Make sure that you control your vessel to perform the task needed to become successful.

Week 4 – The Dark Place



When I first started out on my journey of entrepreneurship I thought that in order to become successful that I had to focus on things that rest outside of my body.  I’m here to tell you that for 2 whole years I was working on the wrong thing.  I had success doing what I’ve been doing.  More than most people in my industry when they first start.  However, I realized that I was at a crossroad and I didn’t know how to get to the other side.  This is what I call my “Dark Place”.  The place where the trouble of all your bad habits puts you when you are fed up.  This Dark Place makes you feel like nothing you do to make it better can.  Most people don’t know how to get out of this dark place or why they are in the Dark Place in the first place.  I’m here to explain to you that that the Dark Place is needed for personal growth.


I was able to find my Dark Place by using the exercises given to me by my mentors in the MKMMA group.  Daily I sit still and connect to my Dark Place.  Everything that is beautiful started off in a Dark Place.  For 9 months a baby is formed in a Dark Place.  When we plant seeds to harvest we plant them in the ground which is a Dark Place.  So it only makes sense that in order to grow any business we make utilize our Dark Place which is within us.  The answers AKA fertilizer comes from within.  In order for anything to grow in the outer world, the foundation must be built within where it’s dark.

So after 2 years of trying to learn how to build my business in the world outside the body, I came across Mark J and the MKMMA group while in my Dark Place and decide to fertilize the seed within me with the right food to grow properly.  It’s only been 4 weeks since I started the class and many people around me has seen the growth within me without me trying to make it know to the world.  The law of attraction is truly powerful.  I’m learning how to grow within first in order to allow my subconscious to lead me along the path in the word without.

I’m very excited to understand that my Dark Place in life was needed in order for my growth not only in business but, life in general.

Week 3 – Back To The Future




Back To The Future

What if we had the power to go back in time and change the course of how our life turned out, would you do it?  I believe that most people reading this blog would say, “Yes”.   Well believe it or not we all have the power to change the future.   I didn’t understand this, however after my 3rd week of my MKMMA class it became clear what to do.  I will try to explain what I mean.

We all are going through something in our lives that we wish we could change.  Going back to the Future is a metaphor for me saying get back to when we were kids and when we had no FEAR.  When we had no FEAR we were the most powerful.  So whatever the hurdle is, it’s FEAR that holding us back.  Let go of the FEAR and trigger the events that will allow you to become the person of your dreams.

I don’t know about you but I wanted to become successful by the age of 35.  However, every time I started something I wouldn’t complete it because of FEAR.   I listened to the people around me telling me that it would be too hard or that I could not do it.   Those words gave my conscience the power to instill more FEAR in my life.  Now that I went back to when I had no FEAR of failing, I changed my future.

When we eliminate Fear from our lives we can achieve anything we want.  Without FEAR our subconscious can work on showing us the plan we should take to get what we want.

I would advise each and every one that took out the time to read this blog, sit back and think about what FEARS are holding you back from the life that you seek.  In order to get what’s truly ours in life, we must find out what’s holding us back.  We must look back in order to move into the future.

So I demand of you to go Back to the Future!

Week 2 – Harvest Time


Most Olive farmers wait 5 to 12 years before they harvest the fruit that we consume in our food and drinks.  The question may be asked, why am I’m speaking on this?  Because 97% of people look for instant success in life and business.  When will the time come that we realize that things take time to manifest and when it does you will reap harvest of your dreams.

Week 2 of my MKMMA journey has been eye opening.  I’ve starting to see blue rectangles everywhere.  My subconscious is telling me to “Get It Done” every 20 minutes.  I feel the power of the subconscious reworking my life’s blueprint.  I’m so excited to be able to use life itself as the road map directing me along my journey.

I’ve tried and learn many things along my journey in life.  As my blueprint is changing and my subconscious is revealing where to connect the dots.  I’m not wasting my time trying to make it happen, it’s happening without thinking about it.  Just like me breathing or my heart pumping the blood throughout my body.  Everyday I’m in awe of what’s happening before my eyes.

I’ve started on my journey as an entrepreneur 2 years ago with an incorrect blueprint on how to finish my life’s masterpiece.  I’ve relied on others to get me to where I wanted to be instead of relying on the universe to guide me.  Most people regret failure however, I embrace it.  If it wasn’t for my failures, I would not be able to understand what to spend my time focusing on.   We learn from our mistake and use them to move into the world that attracted to our core needs.

When you are guided by the wrong blueprint you will never become successful.  Success will come only when your true blueprint is recognized and you work toward attracting it in your life.  Life is created in our subconscious however, we can control it.   Your mind is fertile soil and anything that you plant will harvest in time. Then and only then will it be Harvest Time.

Week 1 – Sacrifice


Most people are not willing to sacrifice time to in order to receive their rewards.  It’s sad to say however, it’s true.  Most people truly don’t a change in their life because they are satisfied where they are at.  Most don’t understand that by just thinking that we want change isn’t going to make it happen.  It takes work and time to make the change take effect.

I can only talk about my experiences in life.  At the age of 15 I decided that to get out of the city of Youngstown, Ohio on a basketball scholarship.  That was my thought (the cause), (the effect) was playing basketball as much as possible when others was out selling drugs, going out with girls, doing whatever it was that wasn’t going to help me achieve my goal of receiving a scholarship to play basketball in college.  I lost a lot of so called friends because of this however, I made friends that was more compatible with me because of the dreams that we shared.  Think about it this way, the law of attraction place others in my life that were attempting to do the same thing that I was. We started to share our dreams with each other, meet up daily to play ball, go to basketball camps together during the summer and play against each other during the season.

I said all that to say this, I’ve been involved in network marketing for 2 years now and had more success than the average person beginning out on this journey.  When people ask me if I’m at where I want to be I reply, “No”.  The reason is because I became a slave to bad habits of the industry.  I see why a lot of people love working with new people in the industry because they don’t have any bad habits to break.  You see between the time I went to college to play basketball and now I picked up some very bad habits in my life that caused confusion.  Why do I say this?  I lost focus on life and beginning chasing it money and not preparing to receive it.  Not realizing that our mind creates how we live on a day to day basis.  I wasn’t ready to sacrifice my time to achieve the reality I envisioned.  The now was to appealing then the future.

After becoming a home based business owner I’ve learnt a lot of lessons and it feels like I’ve come full circle now.   I remember how bad I wanted to go and play basketball after college.  I had a plan and focused my mind on achieving my goal.  The end result was a $60,000 scholarship to Robert Morris College.  My goal now is to make $20,000 a month from my home business.  I’m working on the plan now.  However, step one is to sacrifice my time to have fun now in order to plan out how I’m going to live in next 3 years.

Life is what we create it to be and if you are not willing to write your own movie, you will live the life around those you hand with the most.  How can I say this?  Because we attract who we are.  If you are not willing to sacrifice your time for success those around you are not willing to do the same thing.  So look at how your closest friends around you and welcome your future with open arms.  IN order to change you have to change the way you think.  You have to realize you are the writing of movie of your life.  However, are you ready to sacrifice what it takes and step outside of your confront zone?

Most people pray for answers, and I hope this is what you were praying for, a kick in the behind to get you started on your path to greatness.
