#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

The GUIDED Mindset Mastery Program

ANNOUNCING! The “GUIDED” Mindset Mastery Class 

No more “going it alone”!

I love the Mindset Mastery Program. It’s been around for nearly 10 years and we’ve seen hundreds of students experience it’s powerful process.

But previously, the only two options for completing the Mindset Mastery program was 1) regular online, or 2) premium shipped (with my assistance at the midterm). In both cases, it was primarily a self-directed course, with optional interaction with fellow participants in our private Facebook group and discussion forum.

However…

While some people are naturally motivated to push themselves through the lessons and challenging assignments to graduate with Honors, others have more difficulty staying on track. 

Sometimes participants get to one of the more challenging lesson assignments and then pause, digest, prepare to tackle, and then wrestle with it… ultimately overthinking how they should proceed, and they get stuck. Paralyzed. And too embarrassed to admit it and reach out to the community for support.

While there is no deadline for completing it in these two formats (one of our graduates took 4 years to complete it), and while the online community is always available to help a person get over the hurdles, sometimes people think they are the only one struggling, or that they should be able to figure it out on their own, or they doubt anyone in the group would understand why they’re stuck, and actually know how to help.

The good news is that the Mindset Mastery program is rooted in principles which are accessible to everyone, no matter what their background, experience, or skill level. It meets each person where he or she is at, and helps them level up and increase their confidence in achieving goals with Rare Faith.

The bad news is that so far, we’ve only made the program available to those with one learning style.

That’s why it’s time to create a THIRD enrollment option:

The GUIDED Mindset Mastery Class

This brand-new 15-week course is a hands-on, structured, group-paced course, patterned after a tremendously effective program format, where you meet for one hour each week online with your Expert Guide and eleven other class members, as you go through the program step-by-step, week by week, together.

You’ll be guided through ALL of the 24 Mindset Mastery lessons online, with a proven system for holding you accountable, and keeping you on track for graduation.

When does it start?

NEW SCHEDULE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, our original plan to hold this class on Thursday evenings needed to be changed, so…

We will have a mandatory Tech Check on Wednesday, January 2 at 8pm MST. The remaining sessions will be held Wednesdays (Jan 9 – Apr 10) – from 8-9pm MST.

A great way to kick off the new year!!

How much does it cost?

One semester takes you through the entire class. Cost is $497, but if you are already a Rare Faith newsletter subscriber and want to claim one of the 12 maiden voyage “pilot program” spots, you can get a discount. Check your Rare Faith newsletter for the promo code. Discount applicable only through November 26, 2018.

What do I get? 

When you enroll in the Guided Mindset Mastery Program, you’ll get all the same materials that come with the online version of the Mindset Mastery program, a knowledgable expert guiding the class through each challenge and fielding questions along the way, and an accountability system for keeping you on schedule and progressing toward successful graduation.

You’ll experience the powerful life-changing journey in a small group of 12 like-minded students, who are experiencing the same process with you from week to week. You’ll enjoy ongoing support, so you can more easily make progress at a steady pace through every single one of the mind-expanding units, from start to finish.

Who is this for?

The Mindset Mastery program is for anyone who wants to gain practice and confidence in applying that “Rare kind of Faith” that causes things to happen. This is accomplished as a scientific experiment, of sorts, in two phases:

Phase 1 – You use the principles to experience success with an INCONSEQUENTIAL goal, in which the outcome is beyond your natural control.

Phase 2 – You use the principles to experience success with a MEANINGFUL goal, in which the outcome is beyond your natural control, by:

  1. Identifying a long-term, life’s purpose goal.
  2. Identifying a shorter-term goal that is difficult, meaningful, or important.
  3. Identifying and accomplishing a bite-sized piece of the shorter-term goal, which is beyond your natural control, to which you apply the principles, with success.

Through this proven process, you’ll experience the success pattern for yourself, and teach your brain a skill that you will be able to repeat again and again for making steady progress toward the achievement of ALL your goals, throughout your life.

Not just for newbies!

This class is not only a fresh start for NEW enrollees, but it also provides a fresh start for existing participants who got stuck along the way, or for veteran graduates who want to experience the process at a whole new level, and who want to enjoy fresh, new success.

There will also be an opportunity to learn how YOU can potentially facilitate future classes for a home-based income.

Registration opens November 1st. Registration is NOW open!

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”.

Applying Rare Faith in the simple things

We moved into our new home last month, and we’ve been uncertain whether our beloved cat “Tom” would be able to go exploring without getting lost in the new environment. So we kept a careful watch on him for the first week, but eventually braved letting him out.

When he didn’t come back as quickly as usual, I began to feel worried. He finally showed up, but only after I went walking, calling for him up and down our street. I never saw him, but shortly after I gave up and came home, the kids discovered him at our door. He must have followed me there; I think he got our houses mixed up. After that, he never strayed far.

That was nearly six weeks ago. However, last week, after a night exploring, he came home looking like a wreck. We weren’t sure what happened, but his tail was matted and he walked with a limp.

We cleaned him up, and by morning he seemed to be himself again. Nevertheless, my kids decided that we should probably keep him inside from that point on. He’s getting older, and seems to be more forgetful. So one of my children put a sign on our front and back doors that said, “Don’t let Tom out”.

Last night, after the family was in bed, I noticed Tom sitting by the front door, longingly looking up at it. He seemed so sad and hopeful, waiting patiently for someone to notice and grant his freedom. He doesn’t make a noise, or try to get eye contact, he just looks up at the door and waits. Should I let him out? What if he doesn’t come home? What will the kids think if we lose him or if he gets hurt again because I “broke the rule”? I took a chance. I couldn’t stand to see him just waiting there, trusting someone would grant his wish without granting it, so out he went.

Usually when he goes out before bed, he’s waiting by the door again by morning. My son usually leaves for school first, so when I came downstairs, I assumed Tom was already somewhere in the house.

But I didn’t see him all morning, and after running my errands all day, I began to wonder if he ever made it home. Worried that I’d be in trouble with my family for letting him out, I hesitated to ask if anyone had seen him. Eventually I became concerned enough to ask each of the kids: “Have you seen Tom?”

No, no sign.

By 8:00 pm I was seriously concerned. Nobody had seen him to let him in again, and I knew he must be hungry, if he was still out there somewhere. So I went to a quiet place and offered up a prayer. I imagined my cat downstairs crunching his cat food. I imagined seeing him at the bottom of the stairs, and me saying, “Well, there you are!” And I imagined how grateful I would feel knowing he was safely home. Picturing him back in the home put a smile on my face, so I knew I was ready to begin. I spoke aloud:

“Dear Heavenly Father, I’m concerned about Tom. If it’s okay with you, will you please send some angels to go find him, and guide him home? I know you can hear me, and I know there are plenty of angels who are available, ready, and willing to help… [I imagined it again, and felt it again, as though it had happened] …thank you for bringing Tom home to us. He has been such a gift since he showed up 11 years ago.”

With that, I ended my prayer and chose not to worry. I imagined the angels on assignment looking for him. I also had a distinct thought, that they don’t magically wave their hand and – poof – he’s at the house, I thought maybe they didn’t immediately know where he was, either, and that they probably had to roam around a bit to find him. It made me think of the Law of Gestation. Maybe things take time, because the “unseen help” is, in many ways, just like us, and it can take time to do the things they’re trying to do. So I pictured them searching, and guiding him home, and even that put a smile on my face.

Fifteen minutes later I hear the front door open and my son yelled, “Tom’s back!”

That smile came back to my face, and I immediately knelt down and expressed my gratitude (again) for sending the help. These Rare Faith principles really do work, and they work – not just for the big things – but also for the simple, daily concerns like this one.

What if we approached our goals the way Tom approaches his? He doesn’t complain, he just focuses on his objective (literally, he just sits there looking at the door), and trusts that he’ll get the help he needs. Do you keep the image of what you want accomplished in view? Do you stay focused on it, with an expectant, trusting spirit? Or do you worry that your desires won’t be noticed? Do you beg and plead for them over and over again, while wondering what you’ll do if they aren’t met?

Try seeing your goal accomplished, and answer the question, “How will it feel when it is done?” But answer it with a feeling, not with words. Feel it. When you’ve done that, you’re ready to ask. Ask once. Then get back to your life and do what you can do for yourself. Trust that you’ve been heard. Trust that there is unseen help that cares about you, and is getting busy orchestrating the ideas, resources, and people you’ll need to accomplish it. Imagine that happening! And believe until it happens, even if it never does, don’t let YOU be the limiting factor. Your job is to believe. It will happen or it won’t. So what. Just make sure you did YOUR part.

I’d like to invite you to read more stories that help you build that belief. That’s what Portal to Genius was designed to do.
