The Kickboxing Bag

The following share comes from Mindset Mastery Program Honors Graduate Laura Da Silva, who writes:

“At the end of 2017 I became interested in learning kickboxing (it was like my body was “craving” it). So for Christmas my husband, Laerte Da Silva, got me 10 classes at a local kickboxing gym. I loved it! I loved the results!

“But I wasn’t impressed with the monthly price, so I decided I wanted to get a kickboxing bag so I could do it at home! In the meantime I continued to kickbox with just my gloves as I kept thinking how great it would be to have a bag.

“A few months later I wrote the following statement:

“‘I am so happy and grateful now that I have a kickboxing bag that is 69 inches tall (the one in the picture has 4 height levels to choose from!) and 18 inches in diameter. It cost $50. It is a free standing bag that is easy to fill with either sand or water. it has a vinyl cover and is made of high density foam, making it strong and durable. It is black and goes from the base up. I enjoy using it to strengthen my body. It is also a great way to release any negative emotions. I love using it, as I continue to love kickboxing.’

[An bag like this generally sells for $140-$300]

“Within a week my husband found one as described, and brought it home to me! So excited!”

Congratulations, Laura!

Laura’s Graduation Spotlight

I’m pleased to present Laura da Silva as our newest Mindset Mastery Honors Graduate!

It’s been fun watching her go through the Mindset Mastery process, and to see how quickly she recognized the little clues that helped her fine tune her goal achievement skills.

Some background, and a glimpse inside her journey, in her own words:

(Comments below come from the Forum)

“I went to a workshop that Leslie was speaking at, and that is where I started learning about life outside the box. I went home and read the Jackrabbit Factor and it was life changing! … 4 years [later]… we [felt we were] in a rut and need[ed] this program to help us get back on track.”

The search is over – moving on to bigger and better things!

“Prior to [a certain week’s] assignment, I had practiced visualizing, and receiving, for quite some time (I even used it to get rid of hiccups 😉 ). For this assignment I chose to visualize the office manager I need for my business. I had an idea of what I wanted and I received several resumes, but nothing that ‘wow’d’ me. So I really focused on it at this time. That morning (approx. 4 hours after doing so), I received an amazing resume. In her resume was listed word for word what I had stated I wanted/needed! Super excited!”

Upwards and onwards:

“When I started this program I had in mind the end results that I wanted to see (to be a lot more financially stable). However, God had another plan for me :). Through this program I learned, and continue to learn, so much about myself and my mindset and how it hinders me from receiving the blessings that are waiting for me. They are at the half way mark and it turns out I have had to do some ‘house cleaning’ in my mind in order to get to the half way mark. It wasn’t an easy road, but a road I would take again! This program provided me with the tools to clean out my life and put my mind on a different track than it was on. Along the way I have learned to manifest blessings I was ready for. If I had received all I set out for immediately, I would not have learned what I have needed to learn nor would I have grown. Thank you Leslie for this program as it has helped me so much, I am definitely a different person that I was when I started this program! It’s incredible how many ‘aha’ moments I had along the way, and continue to have! My life will continue to flourish as I continue to use these skills!”

Phase 2 Goal – $10,000 in a month – Achieved.

“It took me a long time to realize that I did accomplish the goal, because I had expected it to be generated monthly. …It was later that I realized I had not stated ‘monthly’ but rather ‘in A month.'” (Lesson learned!)

Program feedback:

“I really enjoyed this course as I was able to learn so much about my subconscious and that there are terror barriers to break through to get to our goals instead of retreating. Learning about the laws was also very helpful in understanding obstacles Thank you!!!!”

Congratulations, Laura!

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.
