Well, there IS one clue that can assure you that your goal really CAN – and WILL – be yours if you don’t cancel the process. Sometimes that little assurance is all we need to muster the strength and courage to take one more step.
And then step-by-step, we get there.

Leslie: It’s so good to be here, and I’m really excited to share tonight, some ideas that are going to really open, your mind to some possibilities. And my objective tonight is to be, not just another tele class. What my objective is tonight for you listeners, is to give you some powerful nuggets that are going to change the way you see life. Change the way you see, goal setting and give you an infusion of hope. Maybe on a level that you haven’t experienced before. And the reason this is my objectives for you is, because where I am coming from, and what I’ve been through. I can assure you, that I know what it feels like to wonder, does the break to ever come? My husband and I, just a little bit of history, for those of you who are not familiar with me and my work, and why I do what I do. So, when we married it was utmost, top of the list, my most important goal was to be, a stay-at-home mother. And that is what my husband also wanted for his children as well, but, turns out financially we weren’t able to do that.
When the first baby came along I decided, alright we’re going to just figure this out. We’ll find a way. You know there will be some miracle. We believe in God, and we’ll have faith, and it’ll just work out. And that first year I stayed home with the baby. And at the end of that year my husband had a situation where he lost his job, and we had gotten ourselves into debt that year, and I was forced back to work, and, it was one of the most depressing periods of time in my life, for me, because it was contrary to what my goal really was. And so, we had some friends that encouraged us to start attending seminars with them, because they could see that doors kept closing for us. Opportunities weren’t showing up for us. And they attributed that, because of the things that they had learned, to the way we were thinking. There are different levels of thinking. And when an opportunity comes along, or when a setback happens in your life, there are multiple ways of thinking about those experiences. In those incidents, and how you think about them determines what comes next.
And so, they invited us to start learning with them. And I counted it up and over seven years, the next seven years we attended more than 100 seminars. And we had traveled, and we had spent grocery money to attend seminars, we had spent money we didn’t have to learn how to think better. Because something inside of me told me that if you can just learn how to think about this, things will go better. Doors will open. Things won’t fall through just before they’re about to break, you know, for the better. So, I cannot tell you how many times, I would attend a seminar I think oh, oh. Oh, I get it, I get It. This is going to work, and would be excited for about two weeks, and then we’d be back to where we were before, or a little worse off because we were discouraged again, and thinking, you know what, that hype doesn’t last, that motivation doesn’t last. And I started to get cynical. Finally, I attended one, where the lights did finally go on, and within three months we tripled our income! But it took me that much time to get all the pieces in place, before the breakthrough.
And what I’m here to tell you today is, that the breakthrough does come, and that one breakthrough that we had, wasn’t the last breakthrough we needed. Throughout life we’re going to continually need another breakthrough, another breakthrough, another breakthrough, to achieve our highest potential. That’s what life is all about, is, is, facing challenges and overcoming them, one after the other, after the other. And at the end of our life, it is my hope we can look back and say, you know I conquered. I was victorious. I did what I set out to do, and I am fulfilled. And feeling happy, and fulfilled along the way, as well. Well you know about that, motivation doesn’t last comment, I had somebody tell me once, yeah well neither did breakfast, and, neither did your shower. And so, when I was wanting to give up reading another book, or attending another training, or something that was to help me achieve my goals better. Oh I get so discouraged, and so tired and so weary of spending the money. And uh! you know, and I’d start to think, you know those seminar people, they have all my money, no wonder they’re doing so well. You know, and I, I looked at it from every angle, bitter, uh cynical, suspicious and yet, when I listen to their words, I’d come away thinking, you know what there is something to this. Why can’t I just, why can’t I put all the pieces together? I get a piece here, I’d get a piece there, but the breakthroughs didn’t come. Well, I learned that, you know, yes, breakfast doesn’t last. Your shower didn’t last, motivation doesn’t last, and inspiration doesn’t last. And so, it does require, a steady diet, and a commitment, to a steady diet, of feeding your mind. Feeding your spirit. And one by one, those nuggets come along, and those puzzle pieces start to fall into place.
I’d like you to think about the combination lock, and how, the kind that has the little dials, with the numbers on the several different disks, that have to rotate into place.
And so maybe the combination is nine, five, three, four. And you might have nine in place, but the other numbers might be two, one, six. Yes, the nine is in place, but the lock does not spring open. And, what I learned is, that each time I would put myself in a position to learn something new, one of those, one of those, pieces would click into place. And I, I, took notes, copious notes. Those, all those years of attending seminars, and every time I get it, an aha moment, like oh my goodness, I’d never thought it that way before. Wow, that’s powerful. I’d write it down. And my journals are full of these nuggets. And looking back, I gathered those up, and after our breakthrough, and I was so excited about the, the, breakthrough, and the difference it made, and that it was permanent. And that life was truly different, and freer. And I, I realized, I have got to teach, what I’ve learned. But again, I wasn’t looking for career or anything. And so, I looked for ways to share the information, while raising my family. And so, a lot of what I do is through books, through teleseminars, and whatnot. So that, I can still be the mom, that I want to be. But, here’s the thing, I would go to these events, and I would get a nugget, and one of those dials on my combination lock would twist into place. The thing is I didn’t know how many of those dials, were on my combination lock. I get so frustrated that the people who would attend these seminars with me, and they’d get their breakthrough. They’d sit next to me, they’d get their breakthrough and then their income would go through the roof, that next month. And I think, well I was there. I heard the same thing. Why was that, the big breakthrough for them and not for me? That was good, and I got something from it. But my lock didn’t spring open. Well here’s the thing, every one of us, comes from a different place. We all have different thinking patterns. We all have different backgrounds. We all have different upbringing, and different mindsets that were passed down to us from our parents, and grandparents. And so, there is a formula for success. There is a predictable, dependable, formula and success really depends, on how you think. It doesn’t depend, you know you’re not going to lose the weight you’re trying to lose if you eat less. If the mind set hasn’t shifted first, you might lose it, but to keep it off, and to have that new lifestyle, the shift has to take place in your thinking, and in your heart, and in your belief.
And so, what I found out is, that the person sitting next to me at those events, they may have already been farther along than I was in mindset preparation, and so they only needed one more dial turned into place. I, had more than a hundred of those dials that needed to be turned into place, but when that last one turned into place the lock sprung open. And so, I encourage you, don’t stop learning. This class may not be the class that springs the lock open, but it will get you at least one battle closer, if not ten dials closer. And maybe you only have two more to go. And so, when you’re feeling discouraged just remember, line upon line, it’s step by step, and that breaks through will come.
So, here’s something that I would like to share with you, and that is that there are thought frequencies, there are different levels of thinking. Albert Einstein said, “That the significant problems we face in life cannot be solved, at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” And that is one of the first things we need to realize is that no matter what we’ve been through in our life, and no matter what we’ve faced, what challenges have been inflicted upon us, it is always, and always has been, and always will be our choice, on how we respond to them.
And so, our life is not unfortunate because we’ve had unfortunate things happen to us, but it can continue to be unfortunate, if we continue to respond to those challenges at a lower level of thinking that keeps us where we’re at.
And so, how do you get to the higher frequencies? Well by learning, by associating with people who have higher levels of thinking, and it doesn’t mean a person is better than another person. But there are different ways to think about things, for example, when you have a setback in your life, and for many, many, years we’d have a job loss, or we’d have a medical emergency, or we’d have a car breakdown, and my first reaction was anger and frustration. And I would throw fits, and I’d. I’d, rage, about why does this always happen? Why can’t we get ahead, and rage, rage, rage. That response, to that kind of a problem is at a level of thinking, that invites and perpetuates the same kinds of problems.
And so, let me give you a hint on how you can respond differently, at a higher level of thinking which, by natural law will start moving your thoughts to a higher frequency, where solutions are. It’s like a radio broadcast. A radio broadcast that continually is full of inspired ideas, and solutions, and possibilities, and answers. And it’s always there. It’s as close as an idea away. You think about a local radio, radio station that you’ve listened to before. Right now, perhaps, it’s not on because you’re listening to this class, but that radio station, is still in this room. The broadcast, that frequency, is still in the room, and all you need is a receiver to tune into it, and you can change stations. Well thoughts are like that, in fact, as I’ve trained people to think at the level of solutions and success, one of the most common responses I get, is that, they’ll come to me, and they’ll say I’ve got, I’ve got, so many ideas. I got, I got, so many things, there’s not time to do everything. I don’t even know which one to do, I can’t, I can’t handle, all of these solutions, all of these ideas, all of these ways to succeed. I just don’t know what to do with all of them. And they, and they feel a responsibility to do something with every one of them. And I have to just remind them, that you know, you’ve just raised your personal vibration. It’s a vibration, that tunes into a higher-level frequency, a broadcast of empowerment, and bright ideas, and solutions, and inspiration. Inspired, divine ideas, and when you’re on that frequency, there’s a flood of it. And so many times we go through life wondering. I’ll just get that one idea that would solve this problem, man, I’ll change everything. But when you tap into that, it’s a flow you, get into this flow of ideas, and you have to understand that they’re not all for you, and you don’t have to act on every one of them. You just pay attention, and listen for that little voice inside that says, that one’s for you. Go do it.
And so, that was kind of a tangent, but one of the things I promised to share with you, on this call, is how to know if you’re on the right track, how to know if you’ll reach the goal. Maybe you’ve already tapped into an idea that you feel like is going to take you where you want to go, and you’re in the groove of it, and you’re feeling on fire about it. You’re like this is it. I’m passionate about this, I know it’s going to work. But then you have those days where, if you’re not seeing much evidence that it’s going anywhere, you don’t see evidence of success, and sometimes you just need a little assurance that it’s still progressing, because you know, I’d seen movies where you had to go the distance. The hero had to, overcome insurmountable odds, they had to be superhuman. And these hero movies, they’re so inspiring that your thinking, man. I’m not sure I’ve got it in me to go that far, to go beyond, to do the extra that would get you through all the challenges. And here’s what I learned, that when you set a goal, and you set it properly, and I’m going to explain to you how to do that. Once you set a goal properly, and you take a step, in the right direction, there are teams that are going on, in the world around you that you are unaware of, that are lining up the opportunities for people, the resources, everything you need, is on its way to you. And so, in reality, you don’t have to go the distance, and claw your way to the end. You only have to go halfway because it meets you in the middle. And so, when you’re feeling discouraged, like I don’t know if I can take another step. As long as you are believing that, you know, I need a break. I’m going to just take a break, and regroup, and get to sharpen my saw a little bit. You can trust, that those unseen situations, and unseen assistance, is still working its way to you.
What I do, is I imagine conversations happening between people I don’t know. It’s just some big people out there, and thinking, you know I set a goal, and I need this resource, and I need that resource, and X, Y, Z. I need all of these things in order to achieve that goal. I don’t have them right now, but I believe they’re out there. And so, what can I do right now? What can I, do right now, to get me one step closer? Well, first thing is, I make sure I’m on the right frequency so that I’m not doing things that perpetuate, the entrapment, that I’m trying to get out of. How do I do that? By imagining the goal accomplished. If I can see the goal accomplished on the screen of my mind, and answer the question, how is that going to feel, to have that done? And if I can answer that question, with a true feeling, that feeling is a vibration. And it puts your body, your body is a receiver, like the radio is a receiver. Your body is the physical tool, that you’ve been given, over which you have, you have stewardship over this body of yours. And your mind is the switchboard that determines what your body is going to do. Who you’re going to talk to, what phone calls you’re going to make, where you’re going to walk. It, your mind is, the control center of what your body is going to do. With something else, that we don’t know about our body, until we learn this, is that our body is on, it vibrates just like everything else. The table in front of you is vibrating on a molecular level. You zoom in close enough, and you’re going to see that the atoms and molecules are bumping around and vibrating. Our bodies doing the same thing. And the feeling, is nothing more, than a conscious awareness of a particular vibration. And so, when you’re in this feeling, that this rage, that I used to get into, ah nothing is going right, I am in a very low vibration. That radio station is tuned to a low station, with the kinds of broadcast that’s only going to get you more of the same. It’s like trying to solve the problem, with the same thinking that created the problem. You’re not going to get anywhere. That you change your vibration, by allowing yourself to feel the victory before it’s really yours, because in truth, your subconscious mind cannot tell the difference, between an experience that is real, and one that is imagined. And so, if you’re imagining it, it, thinks, you’re really experiencing it. So then when you go about your regular day and it’s, it’s, already experienced this victory, and it notices subconsciously, you’re noticing that your environment, doesn’t match, that new internal truth that, this victory is yours. It’s going to be like a radar for you, and it’s going to help you tune in to those conversations, to those people, to those resources that are already within reach, that you are not aware of them, because you’re not yet on that frequency. Get on that frequency by imagining, daydreaming. Letting yourself fall in love with the idea. People ask me, so how often do I have to think of my victory? How often do I have to feel it? And I say, “Oh are you married?” And they’re like, maybe it, maybe they say yes, and I say, “Well when you were engaged, or when you were dating your spouse to be, how often did you have to think about them? How long did you put it in your calendar, make sure you think about your fiancée three times a day, for ten minutes? No, you were in love with that, you were in love with that person, and you couldn’t help but think about them. And that’s the same way when you’re locked onto a goal, and it’s just how you can know, you’re going to reach the goal, is if you can’t help but think about it. When, when, everything else in life is a distraction, because you want to be daydreaming about that goal. And if, you’re not there yet, it’s because you don’t believe in the goal yet. You don’t really believe that it’s possible for you. And so, here’s how you can get to that place, where, you, you, can believe it’s possible, and you start feeling it, as though it’s true, and then your subconscious mind kicks you up into that higher frequency. And, and, you’ll find yourself in an elevator one day next to a person, and some days you have, no, inclination to say hello to that person, but that one day something says, “Say hi.”, and you find out that person is a key to helping you achieve your goal. They have a resource that you’re looking for. Perhaps, perhaps, you have a resource they’re looking for. And there’s an exchange that can take place.
What I, can guarantee you is, that everything you need to achieve your goal is already within your reach. It’s already in your world. It’s a conversation away, it’s one contact away. The person that you’re looking for, to be a part of your solution, you may not know them, today, but somebody you already know probably knows them. And so, I just want you to start thinking about possibility. And let’s talk about how to know if you’ll reach the goal.
So here’s another analogy I want you to consider. I want you to think about setting and achieving a goal, kind of like placing an online order. If you perform each step in the order process, you can be certain that this thing you want is going to be shipped, right? It’s not going to show up immediately, but it’s on its way. That’s kind of how I look at, my goal achievement.
So, suppose you’ve set a goal to sell 20 widgets, or something during the month of February. I’m going to compare the online bookstore, to life’s distribution system.
Okay, number one: is to decide what you want. So, just as I can’t expect the bookstore to send me a book before submitting my request. Okay, I want to buy the book. Maybe I want to buy an antique copy of the book, As A Man Thinketh, by James Allen, and we, I can’t expect the bookstore to send me the book before I submit my request, right? And neither should you expect clients, to show up who are going to support a vague sales goal. So, you’ve got to be very clear on what your goal is.
Take the dollar figure you want to reach., so that life can deliver the right clients.
Number two: put it in writing. So, before I can place the order for the book, I had to find the right order page, for that book. However, before I can find the right order page, I had to type the right key terms into the search bar. Now think about it, wouldn’t it be absurd, if I enter, not, Catcher in the Rye, not anything written by, Poe, in my search for, As A Man Thinketh, you know, even if, the search feature, was smart enough to exclude all of that, how long would it take me to get to the book I want? There’s millions of books, say on Amazon.com, if I’m going to punch in, not, Catcher in the Rye, not anything written by, Poe, I’m going to be looking for a very, long time. So, precision is going to save time. Write down what you want, and be precise, as you can. You know, don’t talk about getting out of debt, when you really mean, that you want financial freedom. We’ve got to choose our search terms carefully, so that we can be taken to the right order page, of life. You’re not looking for the Desc, order page, so quit using that term.
Vague orders, let’s talk about them. Vague orders bring vague, results. And so, we never see the connection between our requests, and what shows up, Too often, were placing careless orders unknowingly, and then we wonder why life doesn’t go the way we want it to go. You know, I was talking to Sharon Lechter, one time she is the co-author to the, Rich Dad Poor Dad, books, and we were doing a class together, and she mentioned something that I thought was very, very, interesting. She said, “Worry is like playing for something you don’t want, or you know, and let me give you a little hint on this one, I am a praying kind of person. I believe in God. But, I used to pray like this. I would imagine on the screen of my mind and get really worried about the disaster at the end of the month, that would happen, if we didn’t find the money we needed. And so, my prayers would be, please help us get this money, because, oh my gosh, this was going to be disastrous. And you know, I believe that, God operates by natural laws. I am, I am, all about the science behind this, because to me there is no contradiction. You may, you may, believe only in the science side of things, you may only believe in the spiritual, religious, godly, side of this, but to me I think they work together very, very, nicely. I think the universe was created by God, and that it operates by law. And so, if part of the law of success says that you have to be aligned body, mind, and spirit, to what you’re trying to accomplish then, it’s very important that when you’re praying, you’re not praying with a, an image on the screen of your mind of the disaster you’re trying to avoid. That’s like placing an order in the search, or using in the search window, not anything written by Poe. So, get that straight. Picture it as though it’s done. Feel gratitude, as though it’s already been granted. Get emotionally connected to it, and then, thank, your Father in Heaven for the blessing, before it’s even yours. I know my children have done this before will that where they’ll come to me with a hope, and a belief that what they’re about to ask me is going to be granted, and they’ve already got gratitude in their eyes, and they’re hopeful. And it might be a timing thing, I might have to say, no, but it’s something, that I love to grant, when I can.
Okay, back to this order form thing. You’re going to again, put what you want in writing. Big orders, bring big results, so be specific. Now commit to the thing, that you want, by putting it in writing. It’s like entering it into an imaginary search box. It’s the fastest way to get to the right order page. Write it in present tense, as though it’s already happened. And I’m going to have you go get my book, for free it’s at: JackrabbitFactor.com. It’s a story, this is a story that I wrote, that was all of those seminar notes woven into a story. So, that it wasn’t just a list of bullet pointed ideas, on what you should be doing, should do this, should do this, should do this. Honestly those books are very discouraging to me. I needed for me an experience that would take it out of my head and change me, change my vibration. That was the intention for this book, The Jackrabbit Factor. That a person reading it would have, would end up on a higher frequency, just through the mere action of reading the story. And so, it was meant to be entertaining, and meant to change you, so that you’re at a higher vibration. And I can pretty well guarantee that by the time you’re done reading that book you’re going to know, that you can achieve anything. So, and again, that’s free, jackrabbitfactor.com.
For maybe your written statement might say something like this: February 28th.. a year I have now sold 20 widgets. Getting it in writing takes you to life’s, so-called order page, but you’re not done yet. Neither the book nor the clients are on their way until you’ve completed the entire order process.
Number three: Add to Cart. In my book buying experience after entering, As a Man Thinketh, in the search tool, it takes me to a long list of different books. Some were brand new reprints, some were from the 1980s. I spend some time narrowing them down, until I find the one that I want, which is more than a hundred years old, and I actually did this. I do have a copy that’s a very, very, old copy of this book. Then after identifying the specific choice, I click the button, Add to Cart. It’s a logical step, right? After all, I can’t expect the store to ship the book, until I have told them precisely which one I want. So, this step is comparable to adding detail to your goal statement. You need to spend time creating a more detailed description of the thing you desire. Instead of the date, I have now sold 20 widgets you’re going to write:
The date. I am so happy and grateful, now that I’ve sold twenty Widgits. I am Astounded, at how easily the clients came into my life. I’m grateful that I was able to provide them something of great value. It’s going to help them accomplish their objectives. They are for a price that was fair. We are establishing a positive relationship and expect to do more business together in the future.
So, you see how that puts description? It helps you, get very specific on exactly what you want. In fact, it’s important, so that when it shows up, you can know, oh my gosh that was, that’s a process that works, and you can repeat it. When it shows up vaguely, and you’re not sure. I wonder if I had anything to do with my intentional goal setting? I’m not sure, then you know, you don’t have quite the confidence in doing it again, but if you do this step, you have just added your revising to the big part in the sky, if you want to call it that.
Number four: Enter your shipping address. Okay, just because you’ve said, Add to Cart, doesn’t mean it’s on its way. You haven’t paid the price yet. After the book was in my shopping cart, I had to tell the store where to send it. This step assigns the book, that I want, to the location where I am. So, your bringing connection from one to the other. It brings together the two key pieces of information into one virtual place. Without this step, the bookstore can’t send you the book, because they have no address for the package. Well, goal-setting is no different. Just as the book and my address had to merge into one database, the thing you want needs to be merged with your personal information too. I know there’s kind of a stretch, but if you can grasp this analogy, it leads to better results. So, notice during this step it’s not the actual book, that comes together with my actual house, it’s simply a representation of the book that comes together with the representation of my house. Just that information, on each of them came together for the same needs to happen with a representation of the thing you want, and a representation of you. Okay, so, how’s that work? Well you picture it done, in your mind, see yourself signing those final contracts, with the power of disciplined thoughts. You merge the thing you want with the person you are. Your mind is the virtual database where it all must come together, before the order is filled.
Number 5: Receive confirmation. Alright, so, back to the bookstore, after I fill in my shipping address, it asks for my credit card information. And this is where I pay the price for the thing I want. In setting a sales goal, to pay the price, traditionally refers to you, pounding the pavement, making the phone calls, pulling late nights. You know, skipping lunches, whatever, but that’s wrong. At least it’s wrong, if you really want to leverage this strategy. And this gift that we have to, to, learn how this works.
The last thing required, before you receive the order confirmation, in real life, before you can know if the goal, is really on its way, is to allow yourself to experience, the feelings you expect to feel, when the goal is reached. It’s not really easy to do, but if you need to take your visualization exercise just one step further, and here’s an example. Imagine this, you’re signing those final contracts, and you’re shaking the customers hands. And, as you’re doing this, you should really be, you know, your hand is out, and you imagine feeling these customers hands, and having that warm exchange of goodwill. Then you feel the elation well up inside your chest. And you escort them out of the room, and you close the door after they leave. And you feel that cold metal doorknob in your hand, and you hear the heavy wooden door click shut. You walk to your desk, you sit down, with a big, huge, grin on your face, and you sit back for a moment. And then you reach for the phone, to call your spouse, and you hear the dial tones, dit, dit, du, dit. And then you hear him or her answering. “Hello?” And with tears in your eyes, you tell that loved one, “I did it! It was a miracle! I did it! Let’s go out for dinner tonight. We can celebrate. And your spouse is screaming on the other line, and can hardly speak, and the kids are chattering in the background, “What’s going on? What’s going on?”. Okay, that’s your price. That’s it. Don’t watch yourself doing it, be yourself doing it. Don’t be an outsider looking in. Be in it. For all you see of yourself is your arms on your arm rests, and you’re lap, in front of you. And your feet, you know, way down there. If you spend some time generating those kinds of images in your mind, and feel the exhilaration of success, you’ve done it. You’ve paid the price. And as, those feelings flow inside of you, and tears really, well up in your eyes, that, is, your confirmation. That’s how you know, the goal is on its way. If you can feel it. And as you experiment with this, and you think, you know, I just can’t feel it, just can’t feel it. Though you don’t have your confirmation yet, and that’s okay. Take some more steps towards it. The more you port the idea, the more you, fall in love with it. Eventually you will feel it.
Printing that receipt, is optional. By describing your assurance in this moment on paper, so, that you can look at it later as a hedge against doubt. Trust life to keep its promise that it’s on its way and go about your business in peace. It doesn’t mean you sit on the couch and wait for it to show up. No, no. but, you don’t have to frantically rush around pushing, forcing, you’ve already paid the price go about your business with a calm assurance, that it’s already a done deal, and that the people you need to speak with, the resources that you’re going to need seven days from now, are going to be there seven days from now. Okay, you don’t get lazy. You stay focused, because the way you show faith, is by your action. You don’t show faith by sitting back and expecting things to show up, in spite of you. You must work. You must go through the action part and let me explain the last part of this.
The right clients are, on their way and will connect with you naturally, as you go about your day to day activities, naturally. You know people in your life – naturally succeed. They don’t have to break their necks. They don’t have to pull late-nights and sacrifice their family time, and sacrifice their, their, health, and all of these things, to force their success. They just are successful. You know people like that. So, spend time with your family. Enjoy a little recreation. Be at peace, because in the right time you’ll have a thought to call so-and-so, or follow up with someone else. Just follow the thought. Do what it dictates, because, once you receive that confirmation you can know, I am on the thought frequency, that is in harmony with success for that goal. I’m there, I’m there. Now I can trust the thoughts that come to me, are going to be the ones that will lead me to the right resources, and the people and the, the,opportunities. It will lead me there. But when you start falling into fear and doubt, look, you just lost that level of thinking, you’ve just dropped down into a different frequency, and you shouldn’t be quite so eager, to trust the thoughts that come to you there. Okay, so, if you’re feeling the fear again, if you’re worried, don’t worry about it. Just go back to that place, see it again, feel it again, and know that you’ve turned your dial back up to the right frequency, and you can trust inspiration that comes, at that place. Okay, so, in the right time you’ll have those thoughts.
Now here’s number six: Expect it to come. Expect it. And open the door when it does. See, after I made the payment to the bookstore and I received my confirmation, the book was on its way, and I didn’t have any evidence except for that little confirmation page, that says, your book is on its way. But, I didn’t see any truck, I didn’t see any packages flying through the air, nothing. You know. I just had to believe that confirmation, but really how worried are you when you place an online order from a reputable company that it’s going to come? You know it’s going to come you. Don’t think about it, you just wait, and you go about your business. You don’t sit at the door for four days either do you? No. You, you, stay in production. So, I made my payment, I received my confirmation, and the book was on its way. I needed only to expect It watch for it. Refrain from cancelling it. Okay, you can cancel orders. And answer the door when it arrives.
So, as for your goal to sell twenty widgets, if you’ve gone through the entire order process, and received confirmation, and if you want to be formal about it, you, and I’ve done this before, I’ll pray. I’ll ask God, is this mine? Can I expect this success? And there have been times where I have felt such an overpowering outpouring of love, and peace, and I choose to trust that, as a confirmation from God. But once you receive the confirmation, whether it be formerly that way, or through just being able to see it. and feel the success, to where the emotion is real, and then you know, you’ve put yourself on that frequency. Then expect it, watch for it,
and refrain from cancelling it with unbelief. And when opportunity knocks because it will. Simply answer the door. By faith, it comes to you, but it’s by action that you receive it. I’ve had my breakthroughs. I’ve shared what I’ve learned. I’ve seen thousands of people take in the information and have tremendous results with it. Some of you may have heard of, “The World’s Best Job” a few years ago, that was – I understand we have some people on the call from Australia, and a few years ago there was a contest for the world’s best job, and the winner of that contest is going to be the island caretaker, for the Great Barrier Reef, tourism industry. And their job was to live on a Paradise Island down there for six months, and taken in all of the tourist attractions that are available there, and blog about it for a six-figure income. And so, that was, The World’s Best Job, and there were thirty-four thousand applicants for that job, all over the world. And the man who won that position, he was from England,his name was Ben Southall, and he was on a Canadian television interview, news program, and talked about how it was, The Jackrabbit Factor, that helped him achieve that job, against those odds. And if you’ve ever been up for a job, and you’ve been in competition with other applicants for that job, that’s one thing. But imagine competing against thirty-four thousand. And so, the principles work. and they’re true. And here’s the other thing I want you to understand is, that I don’t have it all figured out. I can tell you that. Even after I wrote, The Jackrabbit Factor, and even after it went global, and was translated into several languages, and everything. We had some serious setbacks of our own, and what that did is, it made me question the principles all over again. It made me wonder if man, maybe it’s not it’s not, doesn’t seem to be working anymore. I don’t know, maybe I need to pull the books off the shelves and make a public apology. And they’re all out there you know. What am I going to do? How am I going to keep teaching this? I it’s not working for me anymore. And that was one of the hardest periods of time in my life, that I can remember. And that little voice in the back of my head, every time I’d want to quit, would say, “Keep teaching, you don’t make the principles true or false, by how well you’re living them.”
I hated hearing that, but I can’t tell you how many times I heard that. And so, I would keep teaching, but I got very honest with my students, and let them know, look I’m still figuring some things out. Obviously, there’s some fine-tuning that needs to take place. What do you do when everything that you think is supposed to go right, goes backwards instead? Oh well. What do you do, if you know? And, all of a sudden, I had 300 new questions about how this works, or how it doesn’t work. And as I worked through those, I had mentors come into my life, that gave me more nuggets that would help me understand it better. That would help me understand what, what, I was doing wrong, that I didn’t realize was wrong, and that’s why I had to write a sequel to, The Jackrabbit Factor, called, Portal to Genius, and that book, takes everything that I learned since writing The Jackrabbit Factor, and really filled in those gaps. I invite the listeners to read The Jackrabbit Factor. It’s where it all began, and it’s the powerful, powerful, principles in story form, so that you don’t have to think. You just enjoy it, and it will change you.
But what I wanted to share is that, over the last 10 years, I have taught many, many, seminars. I have taken people through many programs. I have charged up to 12,000 dollars for some of the programs that people have participated in. And frankly I felt like I was giving them a really good deal. And it was a good deal, because our mentor, who for many years was Bob Proctor, some of you have heard of him, I’m sure. We paid him a lot of money to learn from him. There was one year that we hired him, to train us, in these principles. And we paid him $100,000 to train us in these principles, because we’d already seen them work, take us to tripling our income, man, if we can, just do that, what more could we do if we just learned it better? Learned it more efficiently or avoid some of the traps that we have fallen into, and so we paid him $100,000, plus what we’d already paid him, prior to that for the smaller trainings. And so, I’m telling you all this to let you know, that the trainings are valuable, and they do pay. The information does pay. And so, I’m excited to let you read The Jackrabbit Factor, for free, and all of the other trainings. We’ve been trying to make them available to more people, and more affordable. So that, for people, who don’t have $100,000 to spend, for those who don’t have $12,000 to spend, my most powerful program is eight hundred and fifty dollars. A budget-friendly way to stay on this, thought frequency. I know that this is going to help a lot of people.
And in fact, the success you enjoy is going to be dependent upon how you respond to life’s challenges. It’s dependent upon how you respond to life’s opportunities. It depends on how you respond to what I’m telling you tonight.
And so, what I’ve done is I’ve made it affordable for anyone. You’re going to get to take in what’s there. This is the kind of information that will feed your mind. It will feed your spirit, and it will change the thought frequency that you live on. And by doing that, you’ll find that the success comes more naturally, and this is the regular diet of personal development and learning that I invite you to participate in. And when you’re ready, that right teacher, or opportunity will appear, that has your next epiphany. And it’s when you want it bad enough, that you’ll do what’s uncomfortable to find it. Go watch, “The Visual Aids That Changed Everything.” For many people that has been that final gift, falling into place, so that, their lock springs open. And again, jackrabbitfactor.com, will give you that free eBook.
Now something else that I would like to mention and keep it on your radar for the right time. I’d like you to put in the back of your mind, I’m planting the seed to attend, a Genius Boot Camp. A Genius Boot Camp is the workshop where you put into practice these principles. In class and we take you to a higher frequency of thoughts, and you bring a challenge, you bring a problem, and one of the prerequisites is that you read The Jackrabbit Factor. A recommended prerequisite is to read, The Portal to Genius, before you get there. And also, to bring a problem that you have not, discovered a solution to yet. I’d like to leave you with a really important thought.
If you can imagine it, then you can achieve it. That’s something that, Napoleon Hill thought, “That if you can conceive it, and believe it you can achieve it.” For many years I thought it was evil to be rich, and I’m still sensitive to that concern. I know that having success can cause a desensitization to things that maybe, you hold dear spiritually, and so just remember this, money doesn’t make you good or bad, it just makes you more of what you already are. And so, sometimes, a lot of money can expose those flaws, that could be addressed and improved. And so, don’t be afraid to succeed. There are things that you were put here, on this planet to do. People’s lives that you’re meant to touch, and contributions that you are meant to make. And so, what this information can do, is help you accomplish, and achieve those life purposes, and whatever it is you, have set for yourself. You can have what you want. You can achieve whatever you want to achieve. And by being smart, you can set goals, that are in harmony with your core values. And experience the fulfillment, and success and freedom that is available to you.
I wanted to thank you for joining me for this class. I hope it has been useful to you. I hope you’ll join me on this journey, and you’ll find that you’re not alone. There’s places to get answers. There’s a community to be a part of, and people and friends that can aid and support you on this. And you’ll get answers. You know what to do if your spouse doesn’t believe the way you do. How do you teach your children these principles? All these things I’ll help you with, and I look forward to doing that. So, have a great night, thanks again, and we’ll see you on the inside. Take care.
