So I've been reading the Master Key System and I'm going on week 8. But I feel like I haven't mastered the exercises. And I've even skipped one or two.

Should I just start over or just back up. I haven't studied like I should have but I'm so curious to see what's next.

Any suggestions?

Ideally, you would want to start from the beginning again and try your best to master a lesson a's easier said than done though!

Your question hints that perhaps what is getting in the way is your curiosity to see what is coming up.

If that is the problem, then - despite all the advice to the contrary - it might actually be advisable to just read the book the whole way through so you can get this obstacle of waiting-for-the-big-secret-to-be-revealed out of the way...because you won't find it. :)

You'll then be ready to take the exercises seriously because that is where the real secrets to this book are to be found.

Thank you soooo much!! That was a great answer because it's so true. I'm a curious reader. I like to reserach before I dive in. I guess I just needed someone to give me premission to "cheat" :) Thanks a lot!

Each lesson builds on the one before it. If you want to master it, your best path is to do the lessons in order, and master each one before moving on to the next.

Start over. I'm sure in this book it says "there is a difference between simply thinking and directing our thoughts constructively, systematically.." or something similar. You can read the whole book but it is not the same as programming it's lessons into subconscious patterns. I haven't completed it or come close but have read it and without a solid foundation you will collapse into your old way of being in a relatively short time. It really sucks that way and I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy.
