Don’t force the rose to bloom

Today’s Mindset Mastery Program participant spotlight is on Harmony H. She writes:

When I hit my emotional rock bottom a few months ago, feeling great stress and fear about money, I turned to the Jackrabbit Factor for help. By studying it, I was able to lift myself out of the despair and fear. It helped me change my attitude and expectations so that I could break through stress into emotional freedom.

Then I started the FTMF course [now called the Mindset Mastery program]. I’m only halfway through, but already the course has thoroughly grounded and expanded upon many of the principles illustrated in the Jackrabbit Factor. I now feel wonderful and expectant about my goals, and I’m already grateful for the prosperity to come and for all of the opportunities I have to give to the world.

As I embark on Phase 2 of the course, I’m setting a goal to complete a certain number of chapters of a book that I’ve known I’ve needed to write for years. I’ve been terrified of writing it for just as many years, too! In fact, in the past, I’ve sometimes felt so frozen up with fear and terror that I thought writing this book would be utterly impossible. But now, having studied the [Mindset Mastery program] and gained a new awareness of jackrabbits everywhere, I feel quietly confident and capable of meeting — perhaps exceeding — my writing goal before the course is done.

Sometimes in her blog or in her other resources, Leslie talks about dreaming big and making sure that the short-term goals fit the long-term vision of our lives. Before starting the [Mindset Mastery program], I didn’t really “get” that. I was always thinking in the short-term. The course has taken me through a series of exercises in which I’ve learned how to relate my pursuits to a unified, long-term, whole perspective on my life. Again and again, the course has directed me to write, re-rewite, and re-write my vision of how I want my life to be. With that repetition and emotion, I’m starting to feel the joy of dreaming big — in a way that is consistent with my personality, my values, my emotional and spiritual needs, and my own unique take on life. My big dream may look nothing like the person’s next door, and I love my dream all the more.

One of the things that I value about the course is the length of time it takes to complete it. We each change at our own speed — if we force a rose to bloom, we only damage it, but if we allow it to open on its own, we can experience its beauty and grace. This class has let me bloom in my own timing. It’s also taught me about discipline and setting aside time in my busy life for self-development. If I had taken only a weekend seminar, there is no way that I could have assimilated all of this information and blossomed open in that short length of time. The course is also cumulative, so that my self-development has been consistent, focused, and steady, traits that I value greatly. I would not have had this steady growth experience and increased focus if I’d put together a patchwork of teachings from multiple authors. I’m looking forward to growing and increasing my focus even more in Phase 2.

I also value the community… I’ve found that, for me, the [online community for program participants] is an integral part of the home study course. I’ve met wonderful, giving people there who are so willing to help others. I’ve also found that they’re willing to ask for help, too. It’s a community where peers can teach one another, and where mentors can ask for guidance and help, too. It’s also a place to meet great friends who share a healthy outlook on life.

Thank you, Leslie and Trevan, for making your course available as an effective home study alternative. You’ve brought a lot of integrity to the written page, and I am so looking forward to meeting you and our community at mentor training.

Blessings,
Harmony H.

Learn more about the Mindset Mastery program HERE.

The 12-week Mindset Mastery Program is not to be confused with the 8-week 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. 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.

Stephanie’s Graduation Spotlight

“Weekly hiker wannabe, tortilla chip addict and aspiring housekeeper, Stephanie loves reading and deep conversations, avoids cooking when she can, may or may not play drums when feeling so inclined, excels on the shooting range, and has spent 26 years prepping her 7 kids for the counseling they might need from her imperfect parenting. Like you, she hopes that all her broken, but best efforts, will be enough in the end.” (Bio from her blog, JustWalkingEachOtherHome.net)

Stephanie is warm and personable. I love the way she greets her readers:

“If you and I weren’t just communicating through the computer screen, I would offer you some creamy hot chocolate… I actually don’t like hot chocolate, but the rest of my family does. And I want you to feel like family. 🙂”

And now, I’m pleased to present Stephanie now as our newest Honors Graduate!

It’s been fun watching her go through the Mindset Mastery process, and to see how she’s faced and overcome some tremendous challenges along the way.

Keep reading to find out how she earned an all-expenses paid week long vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with her husband.

You did it, Stephanie!!! Way to go!!

Let me back up first, and explain a little bit about what it’s like to complete the program. To achieve HONORS status, a graduate must achieve a total of at least 303 points. But I’m not sure I’ve EVER seen a graduate earn as many points as Stephanie did – coming in at a whopping 443 points.

In her own words:

Day 1 – November 21: “I am loving spending every day listening to a podcast or reading from one of her books. We just received our workbook and course today. I am SO excited to get started. My children have already noticed a difference in me, wondering why I’m so happy. When you wake up in a place of already dreaming your new dreams, how can you be in a lower vibration?”

Mid-course – January 9: “I am LOVING this program! My husband and I have been working on it together, and it has been amazing! Our paradigms are changing, and we are SO excited for the future! My husband lost his job the week before Christmas, and we are certain this means that we are moving towards our big dream! Because of the smaller things we have seen while applying these principles, we have a greater degree of faith and hope for the future. The loss of his job is just evidence that God is ordering our lives.

“I wholeheartedly recommend this program! The pieces are finally coming together in our understanding with Leslie’s simple and clear writing. I am so grateful to Leslie and Trevan for being vulnerable and sharing their experiences with the world so that we can learn from the good and the bad. This simply gives the rest of us an opportunity to spend less money and less time to learn how to move forward in a monumental way. Thank you!

End of Course: “Wow!! What an amazing journey I have been on. The last couple of months have been like a dream. As my husband and I have learned these principles, we have experienced so many blessings. I have re-written my story on a number of occasions. I have found lost articles. I have attracted things that I have needed. I have improved relationships. I have taken steps toward my big goals that are huge for me. I have qualified for an all expenses paid vacation with my husband. I have attracted new customers and new distributors to my business. I have had experiences that I have visualized. My home has become more ordered than it’s been in 5 years. I’ve been given household items I have needed that I hadn’t even written down yet. I have found a huge stack of clothing in a thrift store that were exactly the size and colors I wanted, and all for the prices I had visualized. I have a new story of success I could share on a daily basis.

“I am simply overwhelmed with the abundance and blessings that have come our way as we’ve obeyed the proper laws of thought. I have loved the lessons of Mindset Mastery. They are clear and succinct. The exercises have truly helped me to internalize the principles.

“The Phase 1 goal was a wonderful preparatory exercise to build believability and to propel me forward in understanding. The Phase 2 goal was rather terrifying, but all the tools for success were included in the training along the way, and it was a success!

“I am so grateful for the help along the way as I posted in the private Facebook group and got feedback from fellow students and from Leslie, herself. This course has been a game changer. I recommend this wholeheartedly, without reservation to anyone who is willing to dream big and learn that they can live big as well!” 

Now, you may remember that I have talked about Stephanie before:

Such as in the post “These Laws Affect Everything!!” or the one about the UPS man, “What happens between point A and point B“. Powerful stories, both of them, inspiring the rest of us (including myself) to test and prove the principles again and again.

But what I have NOT yet shared is her Phase 2 goal experience:

According to Stephanie, it ranked 9 out of 10 in terms of difficulty / believability. (It’s important to identify how difficult it feels to the participant, no matter how difficult it may appear to anyone else, because what is easy for one person can easily be terrifying or completely unbelievable to another person. The purpose of the program is to help each participant achieve something that is expressly difficult for him or her. Then, by applying what is learned through that process, the participant is ready and equipped to face, conquer, and achieve any goal they choose to tackle in the future. It sets up a pattern for success, which can be repeated again and again throughout one’s life.)

Here’s what happened:

Q. What did you rank your Phase 2 short term goal, in terms of difficulty, on a scale of 1-10?

A. 9

Q. What was your goal? Did you accomplish the goal?

A. To get 10 new preferred customers in 2 weeks. I DID accomplish the goal.

Q. Please describe your experience.

A. I had a couple other goals I wanted to do for my Phase 2 goal, but when I tried to move forward, I couldn’t feel the peace. The only one that brought peace was to get 10 new preferred customers in 2 weeks. My purpose for this were multi-faceted:

1. To qualify for an all-expenses paid week long vacation with my husband in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

2. To re-qualify for my monthly product so I wouldn’t have to pay for it.

3. To inspire my team to apply these principles so they can get their product for free as well.

The deadline I set was 2 weeks… the day before my team training, where I would teach them these principles.

Nothing happened for the first week or so. I was reaching out to people, but nothing. Then a friend set a goal and decided to offer a $25 discount for new customers. This was inspiration for me to help me move toward my goal, and I began to offer that to prospects.

It wasn’t until the day before my presentation that anything happened.

[Did you notice that?? Two weeks to complete the goal, but it only STARTED to come together on the last day!]

But it came out of nowhere …someone …had a son who wanted to try the product, and I was able to set him right up as my first new customer. So I had one. And I chose to keep believing.

I went to the training, and on the way there, I expressed gratitude for the journey and for my new customer and for all the other customers I’ve gotten along the way. I also asked the Lord to make up the difference for anything I was doing wrong with the visualization, as I was doing the best I knew how.

A thought popped into my head. The Law of Gestation! 2 weeks just wasn’t quite long enough for this goal. But the second thought that came was a reminder of my 3 purposes for the goal. And all three of them could still be accomplished if I signed up 9 more customers by the end of the month. I had 4 more days! I felt a renewed hope, and a renewed faith.

I couldn’t do anything but believe on Sunday. Monday I touched base with a few prospects but I was gone all day cleaning the temple.

Everyone kept saying, “Can we talk on the first of the month?” Or “Can we talk next week?” It was almost comical.

I asked the hard question – seeing if they could bump up our conversation because my goal was attached to the end of the month.

On the 30th of the month things started coming together.

I began to hear back from people, and they began to set up appointments to sign up as customers the next day.

I felt impressed to write Leslie to ask if she knew someone with anxiety/depression. What followed blew me away! She offered to have me share an experience about the prosperity principles, and she would include it in her newsletter. Then she said she would include my story at the bottom to help people with the anxiety struggles. I feel so blessed for her kindness, generosity, and connections. I could see that God was ordering my world.

After my interchange with Leslie, I felt inspired to post on Facebook that if anyone had been lurking in the shadows (who had already seen my video and knew my story) and wanted to try the vitamins, I would give them $25 toward their first order. I had 3 people sign up from that.

On the last day of the month I was on the phone from 10 a.m. until 6:30. I shared my story, answered questions, and signed up customers. I had 8 people signed up, and at the very last minute my husband and I were called by our church for a meeting. We were gone for 2 1/2 hours at the prime time for me to find my last 2 customers. Instead, I went without dinner until 9:15, and got home at 9:30.

I felt like a pregnant woman in transition. I was emotional, exhausted, and ready to quit. I just wanted sleep.

As my husband went into the store to get us food, I recognized that my vibration was low, and that I wouldn’t be able to get inspiration until I increased it. So I visualized my goal again, felt gratitude, and the peace returned. But at this point I also surrendered. I told the Lord that it was okay if it didn’t happen. That I had already qualified with Cabo and was super grateful. And it was enough. But then I ended with, “It may or may not happen, but I choose to believe.”

My cousin’s name popped in my head. I texted her as soon as I got home, and she said she was ready to try the vitamins! We were on the phone at 10:30 p.m.!

I only had one to go – and the contacts on Facebook were not panning out. I was only 10 points away from the free product, and I had the idea to sign up my son to buy something that would qualify. I kept holding out a little longer in case something else came through. When it didn’t, I pressed “submit.”

I went to bed feeling concerned that maybe I had blown it.

Thankfully when I woke up in the morning, the Lord was able to teach me!

I met every goal. Cabo. Free product. 10 customers. And having a story to share with my team!

And where I was paying every new customer $25 toward their order, I only had to pay $22 when I signed up my son. And I actually get the product!

The biggest lesson learned this time, is that I seem to attract what meets my PURPOSE for my goal, even when the goal isn’t met in the way I think it should be. This happened in both my Phase 1 goal and Phase 2 goal. So I want to be more clear in my purpose and focus more on that in the future!

I had originally wanted to get my customers before I did my training, to help others learn these principles. But it didn’t happen. I only had 1. But I was able to be grateful for the 1 customer I did get, and for all the other customers I’ve gotten over the last 19 months. As soon as the gratitude was there, I was told in my mind that the reason it didn’t happen in that timing was because of the Law of Gestation. When I realized I could still meet the PURPOSE for my goal, and had 4 more days until the end of the month when it had to happen – I just felt grateful, and believed it would come to me.

Stay tuned, because Stephanie is preparing to conduct trainings for youth groups, adults, and businesses to teach the principles of prosperity. She is currently working on the Mentor Training program. You can follow her by signing up for her mailing list at the bottom of her blog: Just Walking Each Other Home

Again, Stephanie, my hearty congratulations.

PS. Funny story

As I was preparing to process Stephanie’s graduation application, she was going through some old emails and came across a conversation from 2007, more than ten years ago (!!) where a friend talked to her about me, and my books—a conversation she didn’t even remember having! She realizes now that she just wasn’t ready back then. Click here to read more about that.

These laws affect EVERYTHING!

I broke my tailbone about 6 years ago. Suddenly I couldn’t be physically active, I was unable to do my regular duties, and quickly lost confidence in myself. In a short time, my house spiraled out of control. Add to that my family’s unconcern about its condition

Occasionally, I like to spotlight different students in our Mindset Mastery program and share their experiences with learning to apply the principles. In this case, I want you to pay attention to how a vivid dream can literally FUEL you.

Today’s spotlight is on Mindset Mastery student Stephanie Francom, who writes:

When I started Mindset Mastery I had NO idea the powerful reach of these principles! I mistakenly thought it was only about financial gain and business goals. But no, these laws affect EVERYTHING:

I broke my tailbone about 6 years ago. Suddenly I couldn’t be physically active, I was unable to do my regular duties, and quickly lost confidence in myself. In a short time, my house spiraled out of control. Add to that my family’s unconcern about its condition, and our state of disarray (and my frustration with it) cemented into my mindset a habit of negativity for years.

But in the last 2 months, as I’ve been going through the Mindset Mastery lessons, instead of ruminating over everything that is going wrong, I began visualizing things the way I wanted them to be. Now we’re knocking out one project at a time… and sometimes the things I visualized even began happening completely without me!!

True order has begun to manifest itself in my entire physical world. My basement, which has been my biggest mess and dread for years, was cleaned up in just 5 1/2 days when my daughter and son-in-law needed to move in for a few months. Then – get this – my 14 year old came to me and asked if she could clean out my pantry and paint it!

We’ve taken 4 loads to the dump (with another load ready to go) and 4-5 loads to donate to the local thrift store. We’ve painted a room, finished our kitchen cabinets, cleaned out a bedroom being used for storage, gotten rid of enough books to get rid of some bookshelves, cleaned out an office, made a huge dent in the worst storage room we have, and today my son-in-law is putting up shelves in the laundry room to organize it!

All of this started at the very end of November – and the majority of it has taken place in the last 3 weeks! Not to mention all the other big dreams and goals that are in process.

I am so grateful to have learned these principles, they are completely transforming our world inside and out!!

Way to go, Stephanie! As they say, “When the dream is big enough, the facts don’t count.” In other words, when you’re fueled by a dream, you can’t help but get moving, and there isn’t any time to think about what’s wrong! In my life at least, I’ve noticed that when I am hot on a rabbit trail, I have more energy, I feel better about myself, and I get more done.

What Stephanie didn’t say (but which she’s given me permission to add), is that she and her seven children have all come face to face with one or more of the following disorders:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • panic attacks
  • bi-polar
  • ADHD
  • PTSD
  • OCD
  • Postpartum depression
  • self-harm
  • autism
  • addictions

…but 19 months ago she found a vitamin supplement that gave them their lives back. Honestly, I don’t know if she would have been open to, or capable of believing in the Mindset Mastery program enough to give it a try, if she hadn’t first found a solution to their debilitating conditions.

Now, as you probably know, the FDA has some pretty strict rules about making miraculous claims in connection with supplements, so I can’t outright say what they found, and neither can she. But she’s also given me permission to give you her contact info if you or someone you love is struggling with any of the above conditions, and are interested in knowing more about her family’s experience.

First I’ll share her quick 3.5 minute story below, and then I’ll tell you how you can get in touch with her.

 

Scariest thing ever. But I’m ready to share my story.

Posted by Stephanie Lyon Francom on Tuesday, October 10, 2017

I don’t get a penny for telling you about this, and you should know that I can’t officially endorse the product because I haven’t tried it myself, but I believe there’s someone out there who may be able to really use this hope right now.
