Laura’s Graduation Spotlight

I’m pleased to present Laura da Silva as our newest Mindset Mastery Honors Graduate!

It’s been fun watching her go through the Mindset Mastery process, and to see how quickly she recognized the little clues that helped her fine tune her goal achievement skills.

Some background, and a glimpse inside her journey, in her own words:

(Comments below come from the Forum)

“I went to a workshop that Leslie was speaking at, and that is where I started learning about life outside the box. I went home and read the Jackrabbit Factor and it was life changing! … 4 years [later]… we [felt we were] in a rut and need[ed] this program to help us get back on track.”

The search is over – moving on to bigger and better things!

“Prior to [a certain week’s] assignment, I had practiced visualizing, and receiving, for quite some time (I even used it to get rid of hiccups 😉 ). For this assignment I chose to visualize the office manager I need for my business. I had an idea of what I wanted and I received several resumes, but nothing that ‘wow’d’ me. So I really focused on it at this time. That morning (approx. 4 hours after doing so), I received an amazing resume. In her resume was listed word for word what I had stated I wanted/needed! Super excited!”

Upwards and onwards:

“When I started this program I had in mind the end results that I wanted to see (to be a lot more financially stable). However, God had another plan for me :). Through this program I learned, and continue to learn, so much about myself and my mindset and how it hinders me from receiving the blessings that are waiting for me. They are at the half way mark and it turns out I have had to do some ‘house cleaning’ in my mind in order to get to the half way mark. It wasn’t an easy road, but a road I would take again! This program provided me with the tools to clean out my life and put my mind on a different track than it was on. Along the way I have learned to manifest blessings I was ready for. If I had received all I set out for immediately, I would not have learned what I have needed to learn nor would I have grown. Thank you Leslie for this program as it has helped me so much, I am definitely a different person that I was when I started this program! It’s incredible how many ‘aha’ moments I had along the way, and continue to have! My life will continue to flourish as I continue to use these skills!”

Phase 2 Goal – $10,000 in a month – Achieved.

“It took me a long time to realize that I did accomplish the goal, because I had expected it to be generated monthly. …It was later that I realized I had not stated ‘monthly’ but rather ‘in A month.'” (Lesson learned!)

Program feedback:

“I really enjoyed this course as I was able to learn so much about my subconscious and that there are terror barriers to break through to get to our goals instead of retreating. Learning about the laws was also very helpful in understanding obstacles Thank you!!!!”

Creative Ways for Teens to Pay for their Phones

The following idea comes from Livia Pewtress (http://learnlivefly.com), shared with permission.

(Read the FULL story here).

She writes:

[There] are a few … things we do to help keep the light and connection in our home, and not have our family time hijacked by technology:

  • Devices charge in the kitchen and in the loft, not in bedrooms.
  • All devices are plugged in and off by 9 pm (we are not perfect, but trying)
  • Mom/Dad have the passwords and can look at them at any time.
  • They do not use apps that have not been approved
  • We limit the games available to educational ones
  • No technology until we have had breakfast/devotional (not perfect here either)
  • Priority on family meal times – tech-free
  • Engage in uplifting tech with them (we snuggle and read together. Between books/chapters, we watch Random Acts, How things work, and other inspirational content… then discuss what it takes to get things done, celebrate the genius of others and find ways we can serve!)

But then she had a BRILLIANT idea that would help her daughter pay for her own phone bill, too!

As she implemented her plan, not ONLY did her daughter get the money she needed to pay the phone bill, she ALSO came away from the experience with insight and inspiration to meet ALL of her future goals.

Too often, we underestimate what our kids can do!

Way to go, Livia!

Be thankful for sandwiches, too

From Jackrabbit Factor, we learn that finding and eating “sandwiches” on the path might not be the ultimate goal, but it can provide sustenance and energy for chasing the next “rabbit”. (Read it for the full analogy)

It other words, don’t begrudge the sandwich.

Will Davis put it this way. He said:

“I took a break from looking for jackrabbits to enjoy a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the path, before picking up the search [again], and being led to the right one.”

Notice: he allowed himself to ENJOY the sandwich, and then he caught his rabbit more easily.

Sometimes we have to give ourselves permission to rest and refuel. It’s not just ALL about rabbits.

We thank God for sandwiches, too.

Immediate Results

I received a fun message, reminding me of how simple it can be to apply the principles for truly immediate results.

Check this out:

Hi Leslie! I was thinking of you today. I had lost your book in my daughters room and she finally found it several days ago. I’ve been rereading all of the underlined portions and did something that worked!

I got my car washed yesterday and they put a scratch in my clear coating. My husband said to go back and ask what they would do to make it right.

When I read all of the reviews on Yelp, everything was terrible! My initial reaction was “Why should I even go back? They’re not going to fix anything anyway!”

I decided to apply what I learned in your book.

I decided to be grateful that they were actually going to do something to fix my car and be happy as I was driving over there.

When I got there I met the manager and asked him to come and look at my car. He said, “Are you angry about it?

I said, “I’m not mad. I’m just kind of bummed.”

He said, “I can fix bummed.”

Long story short, he waxed and buffed the scratch out of my car, cleaned up the milk on the inside that the other person had missed. He even offered me a 25% discount for him to do sealant on the whole car to protect it.

He was super nice. I even hugged him goodbye. He said he’s always willing to fix things when customers come in with a “Can you please help me” attitude.

Had it not been for your book, I would’ve gone in with a completely different emotion.

I know you probably have hundreds of stories like this, but I couldn’t help adding one more! Really love your books. Really love how things can change so quickly just by using the way we think!
