MKE Week 15 – “I’m Still Nature’s Greatest Miracle” by Guest Blogger Shelby Nolan

Shelby Nolan is a Certified Guide with the Master Key Experience and quite the writer.  I have learned a great deal from her and love reading her blog.  In her Week 15 blog Shelby mentions a recent post that Mark J put up on Facebook that also happened to catch my eye and compel me to share it on my page.  It was an image (a picture says a thousand words) that shows how schools program our kids to conform and become “good little consumers”.  The purpose of the Master Key Course is to create self-directed thinkers…to help adults like Shelby, myself, the other guides and all of the members HELP THEMSELVES… become hero’s in our own lives.   It’s about Self-Reliance!

Here’s Shelby’s blog….Enjoy!


It’s one year later and guess what?

I’m still Nature’s Greatest Miracle!

nature's greatest miracle

We are in week 15 again :-) of the MKMMA program and because we switched to a new month as well, we moved to scroll IV of Og Mandino’s Greatest Salesman Of The World

“I am nature’s greatest miracle”

Since the beginning of time never has there been another with my mind, my heart, my eyes, my ears, my hands, my hair, my mouth. None that came before, none that live today, and none that come tomorrow can walk and talk and move and think exactly like me. All men are my brothers yet I am different from each. I am a unique creature.

“I am nature’s greatest Miracle”

As I think back to week 15 of 2014 I remember thinking this…

“Holy crap!!! Do you mean to tell me that I am not like everyone else on the planet? I don’t have to act, dress, say, do or believe the same things that everybody else does? I don’t have to conform to everybody’s standards of living or ways of doing things?”

Today, this is an even more important thing to realize than it ever was. As I observe people with my MKMMA glasses on, I see them going about their lives with blinders on not realizing that they have special gifts to offer to the world, that they are a miracle with their own uniqueness that if allowed to shine would enhance not only their lives but the lives of others around them. I was like this for a long time, why?

I saw a post from Mark J today on Facebook that explains a bit about why.  This is just the picture, but I believe it says a lot about what our schools did and are doing to us and the generations after us.

conformity Sad to say the least :-(

This is what our schools say… “if you conform you can be whatever you want in life and if you don’t you’ll be a failure”

Are you freaking kidding me????!!!

Ever wonder why you are hearing about so many parents homeschooling their kids? (Kudos to them!)

This is why…
All the schools teach is how to pass a test. They don’t teach real life skills and they definitely don’t teach kids how to think for themselves. They teach them how to be consumers and conform to society…..

      Thank you, Shelby! It’s my pleasure and my privilege to be able to share your thoughts and insight as we continue on this journey.

    Love Shelby’s post and your generosity in drawing our attention to it. Conformity is definitely the basis of lack of achievement and self confidence. Cookie cutter assembly line education systems are not conducive to developing the full potential we all start with.
