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!

What’s YOUR story going to be?

I want to see YOU graduate, too!

Learn more about the Mindset Mastery program HERE.

___________________

The Mindset Mastery Program is not to be confused with the Mindset Fundamentals Ecourse.

The Fundamentals Ecourse is a powerful exploration of the principles that govern success, and takes an introductory approach for effective goal setting. It also fills the gaps to give you a basic but complete understanding of the principles, so that you have a solid foundation on which to develop true mastery. 

By contrast, the Mastery Program is focused on the *implementation* of the principles and the *achievement* of your goals. It is full of interesting assignments that take you step-by-step through two experimental goals, challenging your thought processes, helping you experience success, and setting up a pattern in your thinking that you will be able to utilize over and over for effectiveness with all of your future goals. I hope you’ll join me in one of these programs, to help you take your understanding and success to the next level in ALL the different areas of your life. Learn more about the difference HERE.

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!
