#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

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!!!!”
