WEEK 2 – MY MKE EXPERIENCE

To tell my story, I must start from the beginning.

I was one of those children who got physically ill when the teacher gave out essay assignments.  I just wasn’t good at writing even in my own first language, which is Afrikaans.  I got so scarred that I couldn’t think.  I was never good at putting my thoughts on paper.  Even when I left school and started to work.  Every time, I was asked to write a letter for my Boss or a proposal I would try everything to get out of it and let me tell you I am not scarred of work.  I just didn’t want to fail because I knew writing was definitely not my strong point. I really hated writing. 

So, what changed for me?  I started with the MKE course and what did they do, they told me on the very first day that I had to write a blog.  I couldn’t believe my ears but, in my application, I told them, I wanted to change.  I want to re-write my blue print and yes, you guess it, I had to change my attitude towards writing.

Here we go.  The first three days I felt completely lost.  I didn’t know if I was coming or going but when I was awarded this scholarship, I decided that I was going to put all my effort into this project.

I started reading the book and documents and oh my, what a shock.  The book was ok, but the Master Key was a very different story.  I didn’t understand a word.  I could see it was English but I really had to concentrate on what I was reading.  I had to re-read the Master Key over and over, it was extremely difficult for me to comprehend.  I persevered and slowly it started to make sense and every time I read it, I understood it a little bit more.

I really enjoyed The Worlds Greats Salesman and by now I had been reading it for a few days.  One morning I woke up and suddenly I had words flowing from my mind.  I started writing my thoughts.  I couldn’t believe it, I was writing.  Wow, it was an amazing feeling.  I wasn’t scared of writing anymore.  The words were flowing from my mind like a river.  It was the most amazing feeling I felt in very long time.  I felt alive and wanted to study harder and faster.  I put all my energy in to doing this course, every day, the whole day. 

I was still lost with what I was supposed to do but I just kept on trying, to figure things out and by Wednesday I finally got the hang of it.  I wrote my DMP.  Amazing, did I really do that?

Now just think, if I was able to get over my fear of writing in a few days on this course, imagine the possibilities of what I can achieve in the next six months.

Let the journey continue!
