Celebrating 10 Years

(Continued from “Who is Leslie Householder?“…)

But along with all the UPs of this journey, I’ve also had my fair share of DOWNs, disappointments, frustrations, and defeat. I hit brick walls, I get mad, sometimes I just want to hide under my covers for days at a time.

Over and over I’m tested on what I know to be true, and over and over (after a period of maddening trials and doubts), it proves itself true all over again.

One day I hope that I will have learned it so well that I don’t have to keep going through the refiners fire under increasing levels of heat. Maybe one day my Maker will be able to look at the work in progress that I am and finally say, “It is finished.”

One thing that has helped me pick myself up, dust myself off, and start all over again, is to go back through the materials I created ten years ago when I was just plain excited and invincible, and when I was applying the principles with untarnished enthusiasm and expectation. I still believed that the principles were simple, so the process should of course be easy, too.

With that childlike faith and ambition, the success pretty much came predictably, and it was my excitement that carried me to it.

But then the challenges began to grow tougher. That innocent faith had to be coupled with grit and dogged determination.

And then, I began to unearth some of the trainings I created in the early days, and began to listen to them again. Some of them I had completely forgotten about, but in a beautiful way, the older, more tired me began to re-learn some important principles from the younger version of myself.

It awakened some things in me and restored my faith in the process. It restored my faith in myself, and in the Lord who helps me.

I found the strength to start dreaming again; and inspired by what I was re-learning, I decided to make it easier for my readers to experience the same kind of boost I experienced.

My social media accounts became active like never before, using the Rare Faith theme. I made more items available for free. And best of all, my 8-week eCourse became more robust than ever without a price increase.

So, for less than the cost of a nice date night dinner and a movie, the MINDSET FUNDAMENTALS™ eCourse will give you the mind-food that will pick YOU back up, dust YOU off, and help you START ALL OVER AGAIN, too.

I’m seeing miracles again! And so can you.

Gratefully, the hope, the vision, and the expectation for good things is flowing again. And as a result, so are the blessings.

So join me on this journey of reawakening those long-since buried dreams. As the poem says, rest if you must (like I did), but do not quit.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

So let’s stay on the right track now, together.

You’ll find that we, as human beings, tend to make things more complicated than they need to be. Wake up again. Come see what I mean…
