#50: Why do my Finances NEVER Change?

In this audio, Katie Vrajich interviews me as part of her Healthy, Happy Women Summit, where she interviewed five different women about topics that women seem to struggle with most: body image, food relationship, money relationship, parenting, sexuality, and mental health/self-care. My topic was on the money relationship segment.

As Katie says: “When you’re slogging through trials it is definitely easy to lose sight of where we’re going and why! I feel a renewed desire to share what I know and lift all the rest of the people who are currently slogging.”

Participant Feedback:

“THANK YOU…!! The cure for doubt is action…:)!! God cannot steer a parked car… The solution to every problem is only an idea away… What is the one thing, to do today? Decide what I want, and put it into writing, and then imagine…THANK YOU Leslie and Katie…” -Tina

“That was wonderful! I really enjoyed the positive feeling today. I will go check out your books, and I look forward to writing down what I want and taking the next step toward it. I want forward growth, even with the backwards steps.” -Janelle

“Thank you so much for this. I love the help with understanding some of these laws. Especially the part about how one negative moment doesn’t kill the dream. And thank you for your amazing books!!” -Aimee

Meet Katie Vrajich

Introducing… Official ThoughtsAlive Mentor Katie Vrajich!

Katie had a complete turnaround when she read the Jackrabbit Factor. She went from apathetic, bored and BLAH, to excited, grateful and determined!

She quickly chose to do the Mindset Mastery Course, and according to Katie, “It changed everything!” Within the next year she and her husband tripled their income, and they decided to repeat it again for brand new, next-level goals.

She says they learned so much along the way. Katie continues to offer support and inspiration for life. Seriously, this journey is not always easy. It is rewarding and good, but reaching big goals requires big changes, and sometimes those changes are very painful!

She wants people to know that they are not alone in their struggles.

Learn more about Katie at her Family Blog, see what she’s up to at her Mentoring Page, get her FREE Report: 6 Secrets to Getting Unstuck and Creating Momentum Now, or check out her online Healthy, Happy Women Summit (where I was a guest speaker).

“The more support that one has on this journey, the better, so if there is anyone out there trying to hit crazy goals this year too, please come and tell me about it! Declare it to the world (or at least me.:))!” – Katie

Are You Making it Harder Than it Has to Be?

When making a phone call, if you dial the numbers right, it works. Children who have never used a phone often have trouble making it work right for a while, just as we can have trouble making the laws of success work to achieve our goals.

It takes practice!

When a goal doesn’t happen the way you expected, it’s easy to get discouraged. That IS the COMMON thing to do. The uncommon thing to do is brush yourself off and ask the hard question:

“Where did I go wrong? What more do I need to know? In what way am I making this harder than it has to be?”

Most people ask those questions, rhetorically, but not with a real intent of finding answers. And in fact, sometimes they don’t WANT the answer, because it’s just easier to say, “That law of attraction thing doesn’t work.” Truly, it’s easier to blame our failure on things outside of ourselves.

On the other hand, uncommon people ask hard questions with a firm intent to find the answers. They seek for answers, even if it means they have to admit that there may be more to learn.

Uncommon people get uncommon results. Uncommon people enjoy an uncommon lifestyle. If they ask hard questions and find answers, then next time they pursue a goal, they can apply new understanding, and get better results.

Or not…

Here’s why: For me, this question / answer / new attempt process happened HUNDREDS of times before I actually saw it really work even ONCE. I know hundreds of ways it DOESN’T work. Each failed attempt showed me something else that I needed to tweak about my approach.

Think about it… The first time a kindergartner tries to use the telephone, chances are good that s/he will dial the number wrong. When that happens, it would be foolish to say, “This phone doesn’t work!” The PHONE works fine. The user just needs to be extra careful to dial ALL the right numbers, in the right order, with no extra numbers inserted along the way.

The law of attraction works FINE. You’ve just got to be careful to dial ALL the right numbers in the right order, and not insert any extra ones along the way. When you do it right, it unfailingly works the way it should.

And the good news is that when you see it work once, you gain confidence, and eventually realize that it can work for you EVERY time. In fact, it can become second-nature, just like using the phone. Then, after experiencing some success, you discover that it can even be easier than THAT… like discovering the redial button.

But I have some BAD NEWS…

The one element that does NOT go away, no matter how slick you are, or how smart you get, is the TEST to exercise faith when all appearances indicate impending disaster. Yes, no matter how good you get at the process, and no matter how much money you make, you’ll always get plenty of opportunity to exercise faith, make sacrifices, and stretch yourself OUT of the comfort zone to accomplish the next goal.

You just get to a point where you learn to accept the difficult nature of the process. Sorry to burst your bubble.

The knowledge I share here does not avert the challenges, it just gives you the power to overcome them when they show up… the power of subconscious goal achievement in spite of difficulty… the power to have PEACE of MIND through the process.

And yes, you CAN HAVE your victory. You can have the MONEY you need. You can find the job, or succeed in business… You can have the FREEDOM you seek!

Just try again, and learn from your mistakes. That’s how you win.

Find out what else you may need to know, so that you can achieve that oh-so-elusive goal. I want to help. Read the Jackrabbit Factor story free, so I can reveal the common mistakes people make with the law of attraction; or if you’re ready for more advanced answers, start the 12-week Mindset Mastery Program.

You can succeed!

If we could see into the future

(scroll down for video)

So many of our decisions are based on fear of the worst case scenario playing out. Of course! We want to avoid those disasters, naturally. But what if we chose to live our life, always expecting that something wonderful is about to happen?

What if it works out?

What if the results are going to be amazing?

If you knew you could not fail, what would your goals be?

When facing a decision that has the potential to effect powerful changes in your life, go ahead and think through the worst case scenario. That’s okay. You want to be wise and fully informed of the possible problems that decision could cause.

Just don’t stop there!

After you’ve thought all that through, then take at least as much time thinking through the BEST case scenarios! What if it works?? What if it changes your life forever? What if you succeed?

In both cases, you are literally initiating the co-creative process, designing your future experiences. In each case, as you imagine the outcome and let yourself feel it as though it has happened, you send an energetic pulse out into the world, which resonates with, and activates the resources needed to begin gathering for its realization.

What happens on the other side of your decision is not random. It’s not a roll of the dice. It’s not a coin flip. What happens on the other side depends on you – your thoughts, and your consistency of emotion about those thoughts. Are you seeing the worst case and constantly worrying about it? That’s emotion. Or are you imagining the best case and constantly feeling excited about the possibility?

Your emotions determine AND fuel the world’s response to you. I intentionally didn’t say “the Universe”, although that’s what most people seem to call it. In truth, you don’t really need the “Universe’s” resources… you only need a tiny piece of what already exists right here on your own planet.

In most cases, you only need a minute slice of what exists right there in your own community, or circle of influence.

So stop thinking that what you need is “out there somewhere”. Most solutions really are only an idea, or conversation away – words exchanged between you and someone you know, or between you and your Father in Heaven through prayer.

So today, imagine what’s possible. Once you really understand the laws that govern prosperity, you’ll discover that the resources you need really are always there for you.

To learn more about how to successfully put these concepts into practice, join me for a special event called, “The Science of Getting Rich – LIVE” Study. It’s a 3-day seminar in the Phoenix area on October 18-20, where my husband and I (with a small group of students) will study this life-changing text together, “Leslie-style”.
