Week 3 – Overcoming Fear

Week 3 of Master Key Master Mind was an incredible week!  Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a new result.  Having said that, one must wonder why we approach new and challenging things with skepticism, procrastination, and reluctance to jump in!  We believe it can be best understood with a four letter word – FEAR!

The definition of FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real!  So, we must decide do we have FAITH or do we have FEAR?  We cannot possess both as they are mutually exclusive!

As we embrace our  new habits and gain massive confidence, we generate a much different outcome.   The elimination of FEAR is an incredible feeling to experience!  Once we learn to accept that a thing in motion stays in motion one can move forward, regardless of the obstacle!

The solar plexus is the body’s constant generating central point of energy distribution.  There are several ways this flow of energy is interrupted such as resistant, discordant and negative thoughts.  The greatest inhibitor of energy distribution is FEAR!

So, the fear-laden individual reads an obstacle as a STOP SIGN.  To the contrary, the confident and fearless individual views an obstacle as a growth opportunity!   The obvious lesson simply becomes, remain true to the changes we are moving toward and know there is an infinite universal power for all to become one and the positive changes will manifest themselves.


Week 2 The Law of Attraction

Week 2 of our journey through Master Keys MasterMind Alliance (MKMMA) has been very interesting.  The Law of Attraction has definitely been at work.  During the week, we had the blessing of keeping our two baby granddaughters while our son ran his business.  Busy, yet rewarding, it putting it lightly!  We looked forward each day to reading Scroll 1 of Greatest Salesman, and anxiously fulfilled our personal growth assignments with MKMMA.

While only just beginning our growth and knowledge expansion process, we are beginning to experience some really neat things!  While there have been several instances, two of them I would like to mention. The first occurred while our family was visiting the Texas State Fair earlier in the week.  While at the fair, on two different occasions, we were approached by complete strangers and complimented regarding the way we looked and how we made them (the strangers) feel!  WOW!  What a smile can do and how contagious a smile truly can be regarding helping someone else have a better day!

The second occasion occurred at our granddaughter’s 4th birthday party we held in our home.  Our son, our granddaughter’s father, invited his new girlfriend and her parents.  While attending the party, Terry, the mother of our son’s girlfriend, approached us regarding our “business” and began to discuss how bad she hates her job!  Terry indicated she was ready to “throw in the towel at my job, cash out my 401K, and move to the country!”  What Terry was really saying to us was, “Can you please help me live like you live to have the liberty and autonomy that you have???”

The Law of Attraction is very, very powerful!  Yet, we must NEVER forget:  Where much is given, much is expected!  To attract more, we must become more!   MKMMA is a lifestyle, not a fad!

Week 1 – The Chains of Habit

WOW!  We are so grateful for the opportunity to be part of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance!  Simply stated, “WHAT A WAKE-UP CALL!”

It has been quite enlightening to be able to begin understanding why so many of us make a lifetime of decisions doing the same thing our previous generations made, obtain the same result, yet expect a different result – HABITS.

One of our favorite teachings this week was the realization that it takes a hundred years to create the olive, yet an onion plant is old in nine weeks.  We recognized prior to MKMMA  that we were made to accomplish big things, as well as destined for greatness, but we were totally unaware of how similar we were living as an onion plant!  However, the truth is, the only difference between success and failure is our HABITS!

The three times daily reading of Scroll I in Og Mandino’s, “THE GREATEST SALESMAN IN THE WORLD” is life-changing.  Having read this book previously, the habit we encapsulated at our earlier reading was reading only once per day, without regard for the specific instructions to read multiple times per day!  Is it really any wonder that we did not get out of the book the same results that we KNOW we will this time?

To gain an understanding of the world within and the world without is quite interesting.  To understand that we have a God given gift of an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent mind within us.  But, until we become conscious of the power of our mind, we cannot express powers that we don’t possess.  Our world within is governed by our mind and our world without is a reflection of our world within.  BOOM!

Our potential sits idle, anxiously awaiting to be discovered and we must keep chipping away at the cement to find our “golden buddha”!   Most leave this earth accepting mediocrity as the best they can do and yet offer their advice to younger generations while all the while NEVER finding their own “golden buddha”!

In closing, our first week in MKMMA has made us keenly aware of the following:

“The Chains of Habit Are Too Light To Be Felt Until They Are Too Heavy To Be Broken”

Food for Thought – Never to Late!

Action may not always bring happiness… but there is no happiness without action. – Benjamin Disraeli

A few years ago in a tiny office out in the desert, two young men started what is now the world’s largest software company. That company is Microsoft, and the two young men are now billionaires Bill Gates and Paul Allen. All success, whether in business or personal, starts small. You can do the same, even late in life. Ray Kroc was in his fifties when he opened a place called McDonald’s. Start small and watch your business grow big!

This is exactly how Direct sales works. You first find a company that you can sell out to that has a product that is Life changing, and the timing is right. Then go to work and you will experience the same results as these people did such as Bill Gates, and Ray Kroc no matter how old you are and what stage you are in life.

Most people do not understand that you can start your Network Marketing venture as you work and share as you go. You can start it as a stay at home Mom or Dad. You can do it as a student in College. The list goes on or you can simply do the 9 to 5 JOB “just over broke” and leave nothing for your family but a box of pictures and an old worn out couch. Yes you will probably never reach the Billionaire status, but most people live very comfortable lives due to the extra effort and building a team of people that do not want to just settle for minimum income when you, Yes you can build an extraordinary income and legacy for your family. Why W8 start today and 2015 will be a great year for you and your family.

Whatever you believe you to can achieve!

Let go!  Let God!  Let’s make 2015 you and your family’s greatest year!  We can never explore new oceans if we can’t lose sight of the shore!


Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Matt 5:7

Happy New Year!





Food for Thought – Contribution

The secret of being tiresome is to tell everything. – Voltaire

Hopefully you do not spend much time watching the news on television or reading the newspaper. It is important to stay informed, but many people consume too much fluff. Let’s continue to use our energies to accomplish worthwhile goals — things that some day may make the news! The world awaits your contribution, and one of the keys is to watch less and do more.

Once again when Denise and I started working from home full time the first rule was simply no TV until late that Evening. Then if we had time we may watch something meaningful. This is a very simple rule to focus on business at hand first.  The activity of staying focused on a  specific goal will result in that goal becoming a reality. How many of us would love giving back to some charity or simply helping someone get out of a current loss off a job, or a loss of a partner. I was reading a story of Glenn Beck the other day of how he and his family were helping the less fortunate and He received so much from the experience he shared with many people. I will attach the story and I encourage everyone to read it and let’s share more the true Love of Christ, it is our responsibility. This is news.

A Christmas Story


Only, as the Lord has assigned to each one, as God has called each , in this manner let him walk. And so I direct in all the churches. 1st Corinthians 7:17

Whatever you believe you to can achieve!

Let go!  Let God!  Let’s make 2015 you and your family’s greatest year!  We can never explore new oceans if we can’t lose sight of the shore!



Food for Thought – Nitty Gritty

Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises. – Demosthenes

Many things should be shared with others. Share your enthusiasm, your ideas, your encouragement, your lunch. or anything else that will help them. But never share your “nitty gritty.” These are your irritations, aches, pains, complaints, or anything else no one wants to hear. The fact that you do not share unnecessary and mundane things will be appreciated, and you will be welcome in any company.

Once you master this sharing with others it will be very rewarding. Share your success and all the greatness that you have learned doing your Network Business. Always take any issues up with your Leadership or the Company. Never take an issue down to your team. It is a lot more productive to deal with only positive and success. Negative and failure can and will be less fruitful. So I choose the path of least resistance. Be very Grateful, Positive, Caring, and this will always put you and your team on a path to success.

Whatever you believe you to can achieve!

Let go!  Let God!  Let’s make 2015 you and your family’s greatest year!  We can never explore new oceans if we can’t lose sight of the shore!


Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, ” I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12




Food for Thought – Quality People

I had six honest serving men — they taught me all I knew. Their names were Where and What and When — and Why and How and Who. – Rudyard Kipling

Success comes quickly when you expand your circle to include new, quality people. Those are people who can teach you, challenge you, and encourage you. Old friends and business associates can be wonderful, but your circle of associates must constantly expand if you are to reach your full potential. My belief is that many of your new, important opportunities come from new friends and associates. Searching out these quality people gives you the best chance for progress toward your goals.

There have been so many quality people Denise and I have come to know through our journey with Network Marketing. They are friendships that will last for a lifetime. Who we associate with is what we become. How many times have you heard the old saying “birds of a feather flock together,” well the same holds true in Network Marketing. We do our very best to be Professional and run with those that choose to become the same.

Once you master the Professional Network Marketing aspect of this business the Law of Attraction takes affect. It becomes part of your moral fabric to engage in conversation with others and they will tell you their wants and desires. You have what they have been searching for to help them become the Difference Maker for many others as well. In this business we are one person away from changing the whole dynamic of not just our lives bet theirs as well. Let’s go and become the quality of people that this world is starving for and become a Difference Maker.

Whatever you believe you to can achieve!

Let go!  Let God!  Let’s make 2015 you and your family’s greatest year!  We can never explore new oceans if we can’t lose sight of the shore!


And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2





Food for Thought – Motivated

God does not want us to do extraordinary things. He wants us to do ordinary things extraordinarily well. –  Bishop Gore

The majority of us will work for someone the most of our lives. Decide now to be the best employee they will ever have. Spoil them with your performance. Some will not deserve your dedication, but do it anyway. It’s really for your benefit, because there is no faster way to promotion. People around you will notice and the word will spread, even to other potential employers. They will advance you if your current employer is unwilling.

In Network Marketing the true is the same for yourself. I will explain in the since that we can be our own boss. One of the first rules we teach others who become part of our organization is to be the best Distributor you can become, People will notice this and always rely on you for great service. The result for you will be many referrals to other people as well as advancement with your Direct sales company.

You teach this and you will have success growing like Wildfire on your team of people. Denise and I went the extra mile to not close out a day that we made every delivery the same day that we promised we would do. We have an incredible base of retail customers that love how we take great care of them, as a result we have life long friendships from simply being the most Professional Network Marketer we can be, So can you.

Whatever you believe you to can achieve!

Let go!  Let God!  Let’s make 2015 you and your family’s greatest year!  We can never explore new oceans if we can’t lose sight of the shore!


“You will eat, but you will not be satisfied, And your Vileness will be in your midst. You will try to remove from safekeeping, But you will not preserve anything, And what you do preserve I will give to the sword. “

Micah 6:14



Food for Thought – Obstacles

There are more goods bought by by the heart than by the head.  – George Henning

It has been said there are so many  reasons for failure, but no excuse for it. This statement has an important point. You may not deserve the bad things that have or will happen to you, but you can and must overcome them and go on to achieve success. Keep your eye on the goal ahead and ignore any unfairness that comes your way. Today’s most successful people have had to face and overcome many of the same obstacles. You can too!

When we first started our Journey in Network Marketing. Denise had just left her very successful career at a Major Corporation to pursue Network Marketing full time in 2001. Two months after she began what was already developing into one awesome new career for us working from home. When a tragic accident left my daughter bed ridden from an accident that ended up with the worst infection in the bone you can have. Several surgeries later “12” to be exact Loyd had to come home to take care of Brittany 24/7. We told ourselves that this would not be the obstacle to slow us down building our business but the fuel to grow the business. We did just that and are still enjoying the benefits of hard work for two to three years that we worked with a purpose.  You to can build your own Destiny at your own pace with your team helping them do the same. While spending more time with your family. How many of you would love to teach your children how to become a Professional Network Marketer?  How many of you would love to spend the last years of your life doing what you love to do? Raising your own Grandchildren or your own Children such as home schooling them. Work with your Church or build  a foundation to help people. Our lives have been forever changed thanks to Network Marketing.

Let go!  Let God!  Let’s make 2015 you and your family’s greatest year!  We can never explore new oceans if we can’t lose sight of the shore!


“And hope does not disappoint; because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”

Romans 5:5


Food for Thought – Just Ask

There can be no such thing as a necessary evil. For if a thing is really necessary, it cannot be an evil and if it is an evil, it is not necessary. – Tiorio

You don’t g-e-t until you a-s-k. For years this rule has been the number one way to get what you need or want. History shows that many great things have been accomplished by ordinary people. They succeeded because they asked others to join them. People cannot read your mind. If someone has the ability to meet your need,  just ask.  Always make it a win/win situation by providing something of value to them in return. This rule applies across the whole spectrum of relationships.

When we started our Network Marketing Journey we did not wait for someone to have to tell us everything we needed to do. We dove right in and learned as much as we could as fast as we could. The most important lesson of all is to share with everyone in your warm market as soon as you can. All it takes in most companies is the three right people. The main reason we started a home based business is to get rid of debt, have more money at the end of the month, retirement and time freedom to spend with the family. Most people are living lives of quiet desperation. You have the key to help them out of a situation that may be silently drowning them. What I call an opportunity is where you can refer someone to that opportunity and they can make a lot more money from that opportunity that will pay them for a lifetime and pay you as well for a lifetime. Here a some statistics on Network Marketing.

-Someone starts a new home business every 10 seconds (U.S.).

-15.8 Million people working from home full-time (U.S.).

-Another 38 million or 12% of the total population working from home part-time (U.S.).

-8,493 new home businesses open every day (U.S.).

-Increasing by over 600,000 people per year (U.S.).

-82% of distributors are female and 18% are male (U.S.).

-By 2015, it is estimated that 50% of homes will be involved in the MLM Industry (U.S.).

-$28.56 billion in Direct Sales (Network Marketing) in 2010 (U.S.).

-23% of all Network Marketing sales are related to the Wellness Industry (U.S.).

-Average work from home income $59,250 per year (U.S.).

Morale to the story unless you engage in conversation and listen to what is going on in the lives of others you will never have the opportunity to be the difference maker to that someone desperately looking for what you have to offer. Just A-S-K.

Let go!  Let God!  Let’s make 2015 you and your family’s greatest year!  We can never explore new oceans if we can’t lose sight of the shore!
