It’s been a very, very long time since I was in the second grade. Sr. Eugene Marie was my French teacher, and we called her Ma Soeur. I remember trying to comprehend first of all, why I was even learning French. I lived in Hawaii! We speak pidgeon! I had no idea when I would ever use this language from a country that was halfway around the world from me. But, I would go on to take French for 10 more years, through high school. Do I use it? Not on a daily basis, but on a recent trip to Italy, I could still recognize words that were close to the French I learned almost 50 years ago. I guess those lessons stuck with me after all.
So now, as I begin the Master Keys Mastermind Alliance course, I feel as if I am back in that second grade class, with brand new pencils and notebooks, ready to learn a new language again. Was the first lesson overwhelming? Uh, yeah! I read through the Master Keys and say, what the heck does that mean? I do my drills (read my DMP, Scroll #1, Master Keys) and my mind just goes numb from overload. But this time, I don’t think it will take 50 years for me to use what I’m learning!
