Giving to Others, But Not Receiving – What was I thinking?

My Master Key Experience 2020/21: Year 2, Week 4

The Law of Giving & Receiving.

I was introduced to this law seriously in late 2019 and have been reading the short script below almost every morning since. It is coupled with a strict MKE routine of other newly introduced habits from then.

I have always believed in karma and the saying, “What goes around comes around”, but to have this brilliant tool introduced into my life and knowing how much I have benefited out of it now, I am simply so grateful. Who would have known? And this is only after one year! Why would I stop practicing it? It now also stands out so much, how my beautiful wife, Ninin has always (and right in front of my face for 13 years) naturally been in the flow of Giving & Receiving all along, but I needed the MKE to show me. The Law goes like this:


Wherever I go, I bring a gift. I may bring a compliment, a prayer, a trinket, a flower. But I promise I give something to every person I encounter. I promise to be a grateful receiver of the gifts that surround me, pausing often and noticing nature, kindness, smiles, compliments which I gladly receive with a thank you. I promise to give hope for joy, affluence, kindness and love consciously with every encounter, regardless of the brevity. I promise to give without the expectation of reciprocity from the channels I enrich, because I know I am in The Dynamic Flow of Giving & Receiving.

Deepak Chopra – The Law of Giving & Receiving

This daily habitual reading has helped me to:

GIVE WITHOUT THE EXPECTATION OF RECIPROCITY: When I first heard this, I found it hard to swallow, because I believe that not only myself, but the majority of society are taught that we should be rewarded when we do something. I know I did for years – “Eat your brussel sprouts Darren, there’s a good boy and you’ll get some dessert”. “Study hard and you’ll get a gold star on your report card.” I did all that for years and I had always expected something in return, even if it was just a pat on the back or acknowledgement to satisfy my (at the time) insecure ego.

GIVE SOMETHING TO EVERYONE YOU COME ACROSS DURING THE DAY: A gift, a hug, a cup of tea, coffee, a compliment or even just a smile. I actually didn’t find this hard to do, and coupling this with the practice of kindness, this was ok for me to keep doing and improving on.

BEING A GRATEFUL RECEIVER OF THE GIFTS THAT SURROUND ME: I had heard about practicing gratitude and I thought “yeah, yeah, whatever”. Often I was too focused on the past and present and missing out so much on “The Now”. I also had a hard time receiving compliments and gifts, no matter how much I gave to others.

Wow, was I blocking the flow. It is so cool to look back now and appreciate my journey. I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR EVERYTHING that has happened to me, including all my mistakes, 30 years of depression, a relationship breakup, child custody battles and more. Of course there was heaps of good stuff in there, but I am grateful for all of it.

Being a grateful receiver and practicing a simple “Thank You” is so powerful when you live it. We deal with some beautiful people who look after the homeless and they are definitely heart warming Go-Givers, but I’m not sure that they are in the flow of receiving.

A very good mate of mine passed away from a heart attack earlier this year and I was pleasantly surprised and proud of myself how emotionally strong and composed I was compared to some of my other great friends. It felt really good. And I would have normally been pretty emotional and sad for months. I accepted it far quicker than I would have imagined, and I felt ok about it. After all I know he wouldn’t have wanted me to be sad for months, just as I wouldn’t want others to be sad over my passing. The MKE helped me through it, no doubt about it. I know I am simply becoming more and more connected to my authentic self – to the truth. It’s really, really cool.

It didn’t happen overnight, but it’s happening. Why would I want to stop doing ANY of the MKE habits?

Success is Service


If a Child Needed Guidance, Would You Help Them?

My Master Key Experience 2020/21: Year 2, Week 3

This goes out to anyone who has spoken to a child at any time in their life with the intention to help them in anyway. By the way, that’s almost everyone.

No doubt when you gave some guidance to that little girl or boy, you felt, that what you were saying to them was right because of your experience. And you did this because you care about them and because they were learning and simply didn’t know what you know. We want the best for kids, Right? Of course we do!

So, why do many people not do the same for their own subconscious mind? Our Subconscious Mind is gullible and will listen to us and believe exactly what we tell it, whether it be positive or negative. And it will act upon it.

Would you willingly tell a child to believe in something that you knew was wrong? Would you have them speak negatively about themselves? Would you have them worry over things that may not even happen? Of course not. But why do many, many people do this to their own minds? What about our own inner child / our subconscious mind?

There’s lots of crazy stuff going on in the world that we can’t control. But there is ONE THING that we can control and that’s our thoughts.

Throughout my many years of searching, reading, studying and hands on practice to help myself and others in my life, the best thing I have come across is the Master Key Experience because it has simply been the best thing to help me to control my thoughts. It’s even shown me how we can actually “rewire” our brain and get rid of negative thoughts if we work on it. If we don’t work on it, we get what we get and we go to the grave with that.

Thoughts That Fire Together, Wire Together

Rewiring the brain in a big way doesn’t happen in a hurry, especially for us who have a few years under our belt, BUT it will work when we do something about it. A few years ago I made a conscious decision to put in the work, change some habits day by day and not be one of those people who spend more time watching tv than they do on working on themselves, so they could (if they do the work) create a better life for themselves.

I’m grateful I utilise the MKE tools and skills to not only work on my subconscious mind to create a better life for myself, but importantly also for my beautiful kids.


Week 2. Revolution

This is great Angelica. So good to read with your enthusiasm and faith. It doesn’t happen sitting on the coach and you’re well aware of that. Go girl 🙂

New Consciousness

:A sudden, radical or complete change

:A dramatic and wide- reaching change in conditions, attitudes or operations

:A forcible overthrow of a government or social order, in favor of a new system

However you would like to word it… I am definitely ready for a revolution. I have been ready for as long as I can remember. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t want to change or improve for the better. How we become prisoners to our own thoughts, feelings and habits is clearer now and more simple than I could have even imagined.

As I sat in bed last night preparing myself for my new routine of reading and meditation. “Today I begin a new life. Today I shed my old skin which hath too long suffered the bruises of mediocrity”. I think to myself, surely no one else is reading this 3 times a day? I…

The Master Key Experience – year 2

October 5th 2020

Hey Great People!

Well here we go again beautiful people. It’s October and we’re into it, another year of the Master Key Experience, and how exciting it is. I am so honoured to be in it this year as a guide.
The past 12 months have been just fantastic and manifestation of my Definite Major Purpose has occurred in ways that I could not have imagined. As the experts such as Napoleon Hill, Charles Haanel and Wallace Wattles say, you just focus on what you want and not what you don’t want and your purpose will manifest. It hasn’t happened over night, but it’s happening. Why would you not want to keep up with the habits when you see results?

My DMP is a statement that I wrote approximately 12 months ago and I have been reading it aloud at least twice a day, every day for the past year, along with a few other habits.

I asked for autonomy and I’ve got it. I asked and focused on helping others (as another one of my personal pivotal needs), and I got it.
And now I have the privileged of guiding others in their journey of manifesting what they want to achieve through their DMP. These are more beautiful people who simply want to take control of their lives.

The MKE is the hardest thing I’ve ever done but also the best thing I’ve ever done. It is a challenge, because generally many people are pretty negative.

I have met and collaborated with so many beautiful people on the same wavelength and the same mindset in the past year and now I get to do it again with more beautiful people. So cool. Here we go and it’s only the second week of the 6 month program.

Onwards and Upwards

Who is the Greatest Person on Earth?

Hey Great People!

It’s funny, if I had of heard this question before, I would have looked at it as an egotistical thing and I would of instantly judged and thought “Oh, who’s the wanker that wrote this?” LOL – I’m the one who put this video together.

AND, if I happened to be interested somewhat, I would have looked on the “outside” to find the answer. Little did I know this answer (and many more answers) lie within me – and YOU for that matter. And that’s what this video is about.

It blew me away, when I connected to the greatness within me. I was fortunate enough to come across the #MasterKeyExperience and all the beautiful people involved in it around the world, in 2019. And I know now, it “Called Me” just at the right time, even though I had been searching for “something” for 25 years or more.

I actually used to think I was a bit of a dummy and used to look up to many others as though they were better than me – crazy. I pretty well only let that go just last year, half way through the course. I had heard the saying before “The Truth Shall Set You Free” and never much thought about that, but WOW, how true that is.

Seriously, why do we say, do and act in certain ways because we are worried what others think of us?

How caught up in the B.S. of life we really can be, that shelters us from the truth, simply because we are so “conditioned” from our outside world. It’s not your fault, these habits go back many years. No doubt you’ve heard how “kids lose their innocence” when they’re about 5 years old? Well the MKE is all about reconnecting to that and encouraging the true greatness that has always been within you. Actually the MKE is many things to many people and this video shows that. Check it out.

I have a beautiful daughter and 2 champion boys who are growing up and watching and learning about the MKE and my involvement in it. My whole family is watching me do it including my beautiful supporting wife, not to mention my friends who are “watching” on social media – lol. Hey, it’s all good, I get it. Successful people are the ones who do things that unsuccessful people are not prepared to do.

I am so grateful that I can pass this onto my boys as they grow up with it, and gives them the opportunity to keep a lot of that “cement” off of their uniqueness. (See the movie “Golden Buddha – below” in regards to that cement). Guaranteed, they’re going to have a far easier life than most other kids. And you won’t “get” that unless you get the MKE.

Anyway, the MKE is about to start again this year and those who choose not to take that step into their own greatness this year will have to wait until next year. As for my addiction to it, it continues.

This year I get to do it as a Master Key Guide – What an honour.

Why would you not want to connect to the real reason you were put on this planet, especially when you know that you know that you know, you have something so special to give to the world.

Every one has something unique to offer the world and the MKE helps you connect to that.

Peace all.

Life IS Great when you focus on Greatness.

The Master Key Experience: What is it?

July 2nd 2020

Hey Great People!

QUESTION: Have you ever been watching a movie, a sports game or a musician and REALLY been enthralled with an individuals performance? – You connect with them, you admire them, and maybe even feel that you are in their shoes?

Some call this the Heroes Journey (Mythologist Joseph Campbell) Well, these MKE people have had that calling of their own Heroes Journey.

Go to Our Channel

I have had the privilege not only to go through the MKE, but also to collaborate with these beautiful people – AND many more. The MKE isn’t just a weekend event with some people you hang with for a short time, it’s an ongoing collaboration. The generosity and the value we all get and give each other, even after the event, is mind blowing. There are so many Go-Givers we work with and get support from, and they understand that when we connect to our true inner selves, we gain so much from life.

You may have heard of the saying “You can count all your good friends on 1 hand”, well the MKE blows that saying right out of the water. The connections made within the MKE are testament to that.

But hey, don’t listen to me. Click on their photos in our Youtube channel and see what they have to say. 🙂

The Master Key Experience Retreat: Online from Kauai

June 15th 2020

Hey Great People

Another Positive from COVID-19 allowed me to attend the MKE Retreat online, that is usually in Kauai, Hawaii. So many good things have occurred in my life due to this situation that many others are stressing about.

Don’t get me wrong, I feel for those who have suffered, but I was made redundant 2 and 1/2 months ago and I have done nothing but focus on the good stuff and good things have come my way. And they continue to – We are what we think.

Many of us from around the world, gathered on zoom calls for 4 x 5.5hour sessions to continue to promote and grow our true selves. The MKE looks at the premise that we are all born golden, but the world around us can change who we were truly born to be. This brilliant helps us to reconnect to the gifts that are already WITHIN us!!

We are all so grateful to Mark Januszewski, his wife the Fabulous Davene and Lori Enrico for putting this together to encourage more people to be Self-directed Thinkers.

Here’s how people describe their Master Key Experience:

JANE: “It’s the best Self Development Course I’ve taken. There’s Nothing Like It”

PAMELA: “It’s about becoming a Self Directed Thinker, based upon your deepest desires and passions.”

NANCY: “It’s a Self Discovery experience that will help you overcome the negative and accentuate the positive in your life.”

REBECCA: “It is the key to bringing you to your best life, to exercising and discovering your bliss. I can’t tell you what your experience will be, but it will be perfect.”

RICK: “It’s an experience like no other with hands on support to reach your bliss”


The Master Key “Guide” Experience – Speaking in “Colours”

June 3rd 2020

Hey Great People!

There is a saying in Sales: “You can’t say the right thing to the wrong person and you can’t say the wrong thing to the right person” – Do you think that’s right?

As long as I can remember, I have always been interested in why people do the things they do and why they say the things they say, including myself. People are the way they are for a reason and I’ve found it extremely beneficial to have a non-judgmental and open mind about what people say and do. And now, through my study to be a Guide in the Master Key Experience, I am exposed to another fantastic tool. And I am studying this so I can communicate more effectively to the 4 main personality types that we all are. This is so I can improve my communication and relationships with the people in my life and to grow my passion (and baby) that is Global Heroes.

I did the free test myself in early 2019 and then paid to do the full test shortly after. I wanted to know more about myself – We can often be looking for the answers “Out There”, but as most people know, The Real Answers Come From Within. I am a BLUE and Blue personality types core motive is Intimacy. We like to connect to people on a personal level and some of the strengths we have are, compassion, sincerity, loyalty, intuitiveness and dependability. Some limitations we can have are worrying too much, being too sensitive, perfectionism and moodiness. But BLUES love to serve. Typical Blues are nurses, teaches and carers to name a few.

REDS – They like to be in charge. Their core motive is Power. They know how to take action and want to see production. But they can be insensitive.

YELLOWS – They like to Party, Woooohoooo! Their core motive is FUN! They usually are the life of the conversation and like to talk a lot and be noticed. But often are not very organised.

WHITES – Their core motive is PEACE. They don’t like to be rushed and like to have all the facts in place before they take action, but are known to be indecisive.

But we love them all! It takes all types and when we understand more about people’s behaviours, WOW, what a fantastic tool to have in our kit. What colour are you?

As a blue, you can see how I have included in this blog, all of you and your Colours. And that is because I want to connect to ALL of you.

Wouldn’t it be great if everyone on the planet got more INTIMATE, to see how POWERFUL we could be to create more undefined and FUN in this world?

Maybe there’s something in THIS!!

The Master Key Experience – More Manifestation

May 22nd 2020

Hey Great People! undefined

More manifestation has occurred from things I wanted back in October 2019.

As Master Key Experience course goers, we created our own movie boards with pictures and objects of what we want to manifest in our lives. I have been so pleasantly surprised this past week when a couple of times I’ve glanced at the movie board and smiled as I’ve acknowledged things (including pictures of people I want to work with) I’ve obtained on it. And just like we were told during the course, “Don’t worry about HOW things will be manifested, just do the habits, it’ll come”. And it has. We were also informed that the manifestation may come from avenues unknown. And they have. – Just amazing!

It is hard mental labour to introduce and continue with new habits when all other distractive activities are happening around us, but is it worth it? YOU BET. I have known I’ve got something special to offer the world for some time and I feel so good, knowing I’m on a brilliant journey to my higher self whilst helping others reach their higher self at the same time. Why would anyone not want to do that? I’m actually getting a bit teary now as I write this, when I think about how Mark Januszewski, his wife The Fab D and all the beautiful team, guides and associates have and still are creating so many ripple effects from the MKE course! And then I picture the ripple effects that I’m making now and going to continue to make as I manifest my Definite Major Purpose – WOW, just WOW!!

I am also so blessed to be on this journey, with some beautiful souls I’m meeting more and more, and communicating with from all around the world.


The Master Key “Guide” Experience – The Influencer

May 11th 2020

Hey Great People! undefined

What another brilliant tool to live by – The Influencer book. No, it’s not about controlling people, but more so to guide people to help themselves so that they can take control of their own lives as opposed to being part of “the machine”.

This is our latest study in what myself and some other beautiful people around the globe are doing, so that we can help others to be Self Directed Thinkers, just as WE were guided to be, when we did the MKE. What an exciting journey it is and it compliments our Master Key Experience together to date, as we watch each other grow and shine more and more. And this is so we all can be who and what we were born to be.

Unfortunately, many people don’t connect to the unique gifts they were born with, because to get there, we have to step out of our comfort zones a bit. But what really is more comfortable? – Conforming to “the machine” or connecting to your true self?

Are you willing to give up the life you have for the life that is waiting for you?
