Q. What was your Phase 1 Inconsequential Goal?

For my midterm experience I chose to visualize a picture I wanted to give my nephew as a wedding gift. Weeks before I had looked online and there were no pictures of the specific thing I wanted to give him. I was hoping to find one at the store down by the wedding. So when it came to deciding on my midterm experience I thought this would be the perfect thing. I had previously purchased a similar picture for my nieces wedding last summer. So I visualized the store and the picture hanging on the wall and the clerk lifting it down to me. I wrote in my goal I wanted a large beautiful picture of the specific place he was getting married and it was under $30. I thought about this for several days before the wedding. I couldn’t remember what my nieces picture looked like specifically, but I knew I wanted something similar to that. But I didn’t really picture in my mind the actual picture, rather that it was in the store hanging on the wall.

So when I arrived at the store I walked to the exact spot on the wall I had visualized the picture hanging. And there it was…. a somewhat large… somewhat beautiful…. picture of the specific building I was looking for and it was only $20. It was right where I had visualized it, and met every criteria. Except it wasn’t the size I wanted, not the color I wanted, and I didn’t like the picture. I wandered through the whole store and looked at every picture and nothing was what I wanted. So I ended up getting another wedding gift.

I knew I had successfully created the midterm experience, but I was not satisfied because I didn’t like the picture. I was a little disappointed. On the way to the wedding as we approached the building there were cars lined up all along the street. I realized the parking lot was full. I really didn’t want to park clear out on the street and walk a long way in the the cold winter conditions. I quickly had the thought to visualize a perfect front row parking spot. I saw the image in my mind of me pulling in the the perfect spot in the front. I was so grateful I didn’t have to walk a long way in the cold wearing a dress. Just as I pulled in the parking lot a car pulled out of the very best spot in the very front of the building. Success!! I felt really good about the parking space.

Later as I was thinking more on the picture situation I wasn’t satisfied. I then realized one of my biggest problems has been “vague thinking produces vague results”. I needed to be more clear. I knew exactly what size I wanted the picture to be in my mind, but I just said large. I knew what color scheme I wanted the picture to be, but I just said beautiful. I knew basically what I wanted the picture to look like, but I visualized a picture on the wall and the store clerk lifting it down, not the actual picture I wanted.

So really I was successful with what I created, I just didn’t create what I really wanted. This was the biggest lesson to me so far. In my life I have been successful and I have created a lot of things. But I haven’t created the life I want because I have been vague in my thinking. Now is the time for me to be more specific and really create what my heart desires!

Phase 1 Feedback

In just a few short weeks I can already feel a huge difference in my attitude and my life. I am manifesting small things to myself all the time. I think about things and they appear. I am really learning to find the lessons and analyze things when they don’t appear to be what I want. I am seeing when I am holding myself back. I am recognizing wrong thinking. I am able to consciously make choices to create the life I want.

I feel more inspiration and love from God. I am so grateful for the changes in myself and even in my family just from changing my thinking. I am excited for what else I get to learn.

Q. What would you tell someone who is facing their fear right now?

To face it. What is the worst that can happen? What can I learn from this? What is standing in my way? Do some self reflection and pray for answers. I think considering all the scenarios and the worst thing that can happen is very empowering. Then I would say just take one baby step. Then just one more. I have found by doing this the monster turns into a mouse.

Q. What was your Phase 2 Short Term Goal, and on a scale of 1-10, how did you rank it in difficulty?

It was a 10.

I have just completed all the modules and my Phase 2 goal. Wow! I have learned so much I don’t even know where to begin! It has taken me a week since completing the module to gather my thoughts together and share in the group.

My goal was to take my daughter and her best friend to Greece this summer with my sister and her family. My first struggle with this goal was feeling like I shouldn’t “want material things.” I believed my mind should be set on more eternal principles or things that “meant something.” I felt like it wasn’t fair for me to want “a fancy trip” when some people just want to put food on the table or a roof over their heads. The more I worked through these issues the more I learned about myself.

I learned that when I listen and follow inspiration then it doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing or what anyone else thinks. I started to ask why did I want this goal? What was the purpose? Why was it important to me?….. I want to see the world, and I believe God wants us to experience the beauty in this world he has created. I love mythology and want to see and learn all about the beginnings of Greek mythology. I love spending time with my daughter and traveling….But the biggest reason and the most important WHY for the trip was my daughter’s best friend.

This young 15 year old girl lost her mother unexpectedly within 3 months of getting diagnosed with brain cancer. Her mother passed away in January. She is an only child and her parents are divorced. Her mother was her world. She and her mother traveled all over the world. Her mother was an International flight attendant. Traveling is what they loved to do together. When her mother passed away she told my daughter that now my daughter would have to go on trips with her, because it wasn’t always fun just going with her dad (dad’s just don’t love girl shopping).

So I decided I wanted to take her somewhere traveling with us. I wanted to go to Greece because my sister and her family where going and it would be the perfect trip for me to take my daughter and her friend. It would be safer than going alone, and I could hang out with my sister while the teenagers did their thing. We wanted to wait to invite the friend until things had settled with her mom’s passing. I didn’t want her to feel like we were trying to replace her mom.

Within a few days my daughter and her friend were talking and the friend randomly said “I want to go to Greece this summer, I’ve never been there and I have always wanted to go”…..That is when I knew there was so much more to this goal than just a fancy trip. This goal mattered and would likely be very important. It was a witness to me that I made the right decision. I could feel her mother thanking me for taking care of her daughter. I know this trip will give us a lifelong bond. She will know I love her and that my daughter and I will always be there for her.

It was at Genius Bootcamp when I really began to love and accept the idea that it was “okay” to have and want what appear to be “material things”. I visualized the girls giggling on the long plane ride, I saw them running on the beach, and shopping, and eating ice cream cones. I could feel the warm sun beating down on us and seeing the beautiful blue water. And I visualized their smiles and their excitement seeing all the neat sites. I visualized them taking selfies and posting on instagram. It filled my heart with utter joy and I KNEW this is part of God’s plan for me. This is a worthy goal.

So now that I had accepted the goal and knew I needed to go to Greece, I had to figure out how to pay for the trip.

So my phase 2 bite size goal was to register and make the first installment payment on the trip since that could be completed within a few weeks. I worked and re-worked the wording of the goal. I started with asking for the exact money I needed to accomplish the goal, but tips from Leslie and others led me to narrow the goal down even better. The ultimate goal is to go to Greece, not XX amount of dollars. The bite sized piece of the goal is to sign up for the trip and make the first installment.

So I wrote my goal that the first installment was completed and my other financial obligations for the month were met. No dollar amount or anything that complicated it. I wanted to make sure the payment didn’t come from sacrificing out of my regular monthly needs. Switching the goal from asking for a specific amount of money helped me really focus on what the end goal was, not on money. I read the goal over and over several times each day.

Some days I wouldn’t be excited when I read through it, but as I kept reading over and over usually by the 4th or 5th time I could actually feel the joy and excitement of accomplishing this part of the goal. I always made sure to keep reading it until I did feel joy and excitement.

My first obstacle came when I finally signed up for the trip. When I first had the idea to go there were 14 spots. By the time I signed up there were only 2 spots left and there were 3 of us. I actually laughed out loud….but I knew we were going and was excited for this first test. I asked for permission for 3 of us to go because we would all be sharing a room anyway. I continued to believe. It took a few weeks and they never got back to me and I had a few passing moments of doubt, but I continued on, knowing it had to work out.

I got an unexpected refund check on some insurance I over paid. That would help with the installment. Finally we got approved for 3 people in the same room and it was time for the first installment. I didn’t have the exact amount of money that was needed for the installment payment but I didn’t worry because my goal was that the installment would be completed and I knew I was going to Greece.

I called and told them what I could pay. I had a slight fear of how they would react, but kept firm in my belief. I was shocked, but they said, “Don’t worry, we will take this partial payment and then apply the balance to the future installments.” I did it! I had made the first installment payment. It wasn’t perfect and it wasn’t exactly how I thought it would be, but it happened.

I still had a few weeks left in the modules, so I continued studying and set the next bite sized piece of the goal to have the second installment completed. I knew I had accomplished my first goal, but the money was short and so panic and fear crept in. The terror barrier came up….I doubted if this was going to work. I had to really work hard to hold on to my faith and belief in the goal even though I was still worried about how to pay for the whole trip. But I laser focused on just the next installment. I was expecting my tax return to pay a big portion of the trip, but surprise….my accountant did some cleaning up of my books etc and applied some extra income from one of my businesses to me personally this year, and that expected tax return became very small. I was devastated. Several other things in my life all fell apart at this same time and I really struggled….But I remembered how important this goal was. I visualized the girls with me on the trip. We were laughing and having a great time together. Then I was reminded that we just need to set the goal and work in faith. We can’t plan and expect where the necessary parts are going to come from. I was grateful for the small tax refund I got and was again reminded how important this trip was. I knew I could trust God to get me there. HE wants me to go and HE will help me get there. Not the IRS or myself or anyone else.

So the next installment came and I was again short. But I payed what I had and now was just having faith that the trip would be paid for and I was going.

Two days later I received all the money I needed for the entire trip completely unexpectedly from a source I never even thought of. I knew instantly that was God’s work and that I AM on the right path.

I gave sincere heartfelt thanks to God in that moment.

Q. What would you rank this goal now, if you were to tackle it again?

3-4. Now I worked through some hard stuff, but I still have a few “money” issues that scare me and limit me. I would have an easier time than the first time through, but I still have old programming and things I need to work on.  I am going to keep refining myself.

Phase 2 Feedback

Mindset Mastery has changed my life.

I have studied the Law of Attraction quite a bit and no matter how hard I tried it never seemed to work. I felt something was missing. I found it in this course! There are many laws that govern our success and our lives. This course was so helpful in teaching about all the ups and downs in life and in our goals. Finally someone who talks about how things aren’t always perfect! I needed to learn how to get through the downs and how to see more ups. I loved the idea of life’s ups and downs more like a staircase always leading you up.

I love that the course has actual assignments that make you think, practice, and study what you are learning. It makes you take ACTION. All the studying, reading, dreaming, and positive attitude are just a small portion of success. One of the biggest things I learned in this course is just to keep moving. One step at a time. I love the analogy that you can’t go anywhere with both feet firmly planted on the ground. We get where we are going one step at a time.

I loved breaking my goal down into bite sized pieces and action I could take. I learned how to navigate hard situations, and how to keep focused on my goal and my beliefs. I have learned to put faith in God, trust his plan for me, trust the laws, and just keep moving.

If someone wants to work with you, learn from you, or get help with Emotion Code, where can they learn more?

I’m just getting underway, but I can be found here: www.facebook.com/liftupmysoul/

Congratulations, Angi!

Annette Myers’ Graduation Spotlight

I’m pleased to announce Annette Myers as a new Mindset Mastery Graduate!

Annette is a wife and mother of five beautiful children, and is in the process of starting a small business, providing craniosacral therapy for emotional release. When Annette began the Mindset Mastery program, she introduced herself to our private Facebook group with the following:

Hello everyone. My name is Annette Myers. I’m new to Mindset Mastery. I am a pediatric physical therapist. I recently discovered the amazing benefits of craniosacral therapy, and have started doing more of this work, with a focus on emotional release. In the past I have had challenges with anxiety, which has limited me from becoming who I want to be. I also feel the emotions of everyone around me, which has been a huge learning experience my entire life. I have been giving serious work and attention to my thought patterns over the last few years and have made significant strides. I am looking forward to this program to continue to allow me to create what I want! I’m happy to be here!

Q: What was your Phase 1 Inconsequential Goal?

Annette: I set my inconsequential goal to be having fresh flowers on my kitchen table. I kept visualizing, and it didn’t happen. After a week or so, I realized I had some mums growing in my yard, and that I could cut some of those for my table. Yet I felt like I was “cheating” to do it that way. However, after a couple of weeks I did it anyway.

After 3 weeks, I realized I just needed to keep moving, even though I wondered if I was “cheating” to move on to lesson 13… Yesterday I wrote in my journal for lesson 13, still wondering if I should wait.

Yesterday afternoon I walked into our Thanksgiving dinner, and immediately began to smile when I saw these flowers on the tables. I instantly knew that one of the bouquets would be going home with me! I was excited about it all day long. And I was right! I can’t help but smile every time I see these gorgeous flowers on my kitchen table.

Here is one of her breakthroughs as she went through the Mindset Mastery lessons, in her own words:

I had a major “A-ha!” moment today. It seems so obvious now that I almost feel a little silly sharing it.  But the immediate prompting I had after journaling about it was to share it. So despite disliking being vulnerable (or even being “seen”!), here goes!

I started Mindset Mastery because I know I need to change my thought patterns. I’ve been working on it for a long time. However, I admit that I have struggled with how to apply the information, because all the goals and activities are centered around “prosperity”. I have struggled with every activity or assignment that has revolved around prosperity, because I couldn’t see how it applied to me and my particular challenges. I already have financial prosperity.

Today I was working on Module 12. I really didn’t even want to work on it this morning because I was struggling with some of my “usual” anxiety. I had let myself spiral into the belief that my situation will never change. It even deteriorated into a lot of self-recrimination for it. It just felt like I was incapable of changing anything in my thought patterns.

The starred item in lesson 12.1 encouraged me to pause and think about what prosperity looks like for me now, and to think about whether my concept of prosperity has evolved. I’ll admit that I thought, “Not again. I don’t see how this applies.” But I dutifully did it.

Then the lightbulb went off. I finally came to the realization I want EMOTIONAL prosperity! The dominoes started falling into place for me! This is how this program applies to me!

I want emotional and mental prosperity! I want an abundance of joy! And I have as much control over that as I do my financial prosperity. I get to choose whether to allow it to happen.

After all that I have been seeking, after all the “work” I’ve been doing for many years, I finally see what I truly desire. I finally see how it fits!

Q: How effective were you at being able to think truth in spite of appearances? 

Annette: I think I have made a huge shift with this over the last few months. It is still very difficult, but I’m starting to recognize where I’m NOT thinking truth. I’m learning to reframe my thought patterns.

Q: What was your Phase 2 short-term goal? 

Annette: That I would be guided by the Spirit in finding a wonderful doctor I connect with, and a therapist who does EMDR extremely effectively, and that I would have fantastic growth experiences with both of them by Dec 14. I adopted the affirmation: I am ecstatic that I have emotional prosperity.

Q: Did you accomplish the goal?

Annette: Yes, I accomplished this goal. I was guided to a medical doctor’s office who practice functional medicine in addition to traditional medicine. I was extremely anxious going in. I ended up being see by a doctor who I wasn’t scheduled to see, but the person I was supposed to see just “happened” to get sick. She was perfect for me. I was also led to a therapy practice that had someone who does EMDR. She has been perfect for me, and has been a huge blessing in my life. The steps just lined up. I actually manifested what I wanted, in something that was VERY important to me! I cried all the way home from both appointments, in gratitude.

Q: Was there something you were prompted to do, which helped you achieve that goal?

I chose to write about my worst case scenario of what would happen if I didn’t get emotional prosperity, and if things continued to go downhill. Doing that helped me see how much I use “all or nothing” thinking, and almost always go to the worst in my mind. It allowed me to realize that thinking this way is NOT truth.

(If you’ve been receiving my newsletter for a while, this may not be the first time you’ve heard about Annette. After she experienced her breakthrough, she created a powerful post of her own about her epiphany: Read it here.)

Fast forward to today, and Annette Myers is an official graduate of the Mindset Mastery program! 

Congratulations, Annette! You’ve done an amazing job!

Going Debt-Free with Rare Faith

This stuff is real, folks.

Read feedback like this (below), and you can get some extra courage to test the Rare Faith principles in even more areas of your life than you might have previously considered. Check out this case study. Crystal writes:

I’ve struggled with the idea of money in this way, that if you choose a profession that makes a lot of money, you get it. If your passion is in a field that doesn’t make money, then you make do. That’s life, that’s how society works.

We live in a very affluent part of town… and so my neighbors, church friends, etc. are all medical or legal professionals. When we built our small home in the most expensive neighborhood (thanks to purchasing family land) I struggled with the idea that because my husband prefers not to work in the medical or legal profession, we were stuck.

So my inner battle began with why the Lord would make it so. Why do we have precious metals, diamonds, and luxury if all we were meant to do was survive and endure. My family growing up did ok, but not great. I felt a huge void and frustration, feeling the ‘piety mentality’ of our religious culture. I didn’t feel like anyone that did well was terrible, in fact, I believed all those I knew that had wealth were great and wonderful people. But somehow there was a disconnect with me, that I wouldn’t be a good person anymore if I had wealth. And then there was the guilt of feeling ungrateful that what my husband brought home wasn’t good enough. I am always grateful. We make double now than when we were in school, but we’d still be considered below poverty level on the national level.

In comes the game changer. We built our home in 2014, and it was a miracle of miracles on how that happened. In so doing, we had deferred loans from friends/family that would come due in 2015 that would be beyond our budget. In August 2015, my Stake President gave a challenge to get out of debt. He said to be out of consumer debt in 2 years and then completely out of debt in 5 years, because we can’t help others when we are in bondage.

We came home and immediately realized my husband’s income would need to double if we were going to make it. So logically, it would be impossible. And then I got REALLY excited! Because if this is a challenge from the Lord, HE would create the miracle and the means to accomplish it.

That same month, my mom called and handed over the family business. It immediately brought a little in that would pay the extra we needed for the family loans. Because of the family business, we were able to pay off $65,000 in 2 years. Completely unfathomable to our circumstances.

Then in April 2017, I found the missing piece to my puzzle. Both my husband and I are ‘number nerds’. Finance has always been easy for me to understand, and I found a platform and company that followed the same core values and interest in helping people. I had flexible hours, and could even work with my kids with me, and it has been an amazing journey. That was my first introduction to mentor-ship and leadership that cared. I felt like I was seeing in color for the first time, and everything in my life improved. My family relationships improved, my desire to be closer to God improved, and I was making money doing what I LOVED. The only hang up was that I was still struggling internally with the ‘piety mentality’.

I felt the abundance mindset take over [some] and that helped a lot … [but] I didn’t know what to do. I felt like I just needed to deal with it; however, I [also] knew [the piety mindset]… would be a major setback. …

Then a new entrepreneur friend talked to me, and she had been using a vision board for years and had success with her different businesses … We talked one day and she mentioned she just learned about a book called the Jackrabbit Factor. She had just started reading it with her daughter and thought it was pretty good. So I looked it up and lo and behold, I can access it immediately through a free download! WOW!

…I read it in two days and sent a huge thank you to my friend. She laughed and said ‘Wow, I’m still only halfway through, now I really want to get through it!’

Soon after I learned about the other books and read them. They filled in the void! They answered all my questions and silenced my fears / doubts / concerns. When 3 different sources explained the idea of the camel going through the eye of the needle and rich man scripture, I knew that the Lord answered my unspoken prayers through your work. I will be forever grateful that you followed through with the process and writing and sacrificing to share what you learned. And it’s a miracle to see how the Lord works through your efforts to bless SO many! Now with 2 years left, we know that we’ll be able to become debt free!!!

My mom came home from her mission to Brazil at the end of June and spent the rest of the summer with me. She is an incredible woman, but has dealt with a lot of hardship. She is my best friend, and when I read your works, I shared them with her. She is trying to reinvent herself (as most do in retirement) and I’ve seen a strength come through that hasn’t been there before. It’s beautiful to behold. The way you explain concepts, it resonates with her and gives her confidence to not give up and to continue to develop and create an impact in her new stage of life.

After learning the principles and laws, it was fun to reflect on past blessings / miracles / experiences and recognize that they followed the principles. For example, I have 4 brothers, no sisters, and I’m in the middle. I always dreamed of having a sister, but always wanted an older one named Catherine. That’s a tall order to give your mom! In 2012, my younger brother married a beautiful woman named Catherine, and she happens to be 5 years old than him, making her 3 years older than me! WOW!

Then we always wanted a play house growing up, but never got one. Then we have a house of our own, 4 young kids that would love one, but because we have goals to get out of debt, it’s not even close to the top of our list. It almost became one of those things that we didn’t think we would ever buy because there would always be something else that we’d spend our money on. Then our sweet old neighbors call me up one day and says ‘I saw the cutest playhouse, so I got one for your kids, it’s coming in a couple weeks’. I since learned her friend actually ordered it online because she doesn’t use a computer and didn’t know what our house looked like. I’m thinking its a plastic one. It shows up as a couple boxes of lumber, we get it put together, and it completely matches our house color, down to the same red door and color of our mailbox. My kids LOVE it and it’s better than anything I would have imagined.

Now I truly believe that we have miracles and blessings, I talk a lot about the Lord knowing the desires of my heart, even the unspoken ones, and fulfilling them. I really appreciate what I’ve learned from your books, podcast, and overall content. We are looking forward to doing your e-course and someday I plan to attend a 3-day course with my husband. I feel so empowered, and I see that in my mother.

I know I’ve written you a novel, but I wanted to thank you for working SO hard those years long ago, as you went through your own struggles and breakthroughs. I love to see how we can still bless others through our trials, it’s incredible. We also enjoyed the event your son hosted, it was wonderful. I feel a sense of urgency to figure out everything the Lord needs me to do, so that I can create the springboard for the intense positive influence our children will have in the world. Leslie, thank you for being you! All the best! – Crystal C.

Thanks so much for your amazing story, Crystal!
