Life Vision
30 Affirmations to Manifest the Life of Your Dreams
15Jan 2019

You have all the potential to create your dream life and manifest everything you’ve always wanted.

But the first (and perhaps most vital) step for manifesting the life of your dreams is to believe in yourself and your power with every cell in your body.

The art of manifesting is all about learning to believe something before it can be seen or proven.

It’s about knowing that what you want is already out there, and it wants you too… and that you have the power to bring it into your life.

Affirmations are like your wish list to the universe, experienced in real-time. They help reprogram and realign your subconscious mind with what you truly want to create. More…

Written by Lifebook Member Wendy H.

I was 40 that year.

I had been on a journey of self discovery for several years already. Finding my purpose in life, the “why am I here” question.

When presented with the opportunity to attend Lifebook, I did not hesitate. I’m glad I didn’t.

The experience was so much more than I could every imagine. To me, it’s like a fork in the road. Do I go this way or that? I went the Lifebook way and the affects are really immeasureable. You really don’t know where you would be now without having written your Lifebook, but for sure it’s a place different than where you are.

Thinking deeply and expressing deeply about every area of your life sets in motion parts of the universe opening to you that have not yet opened in your lifetime.

For me I have grown, and evolved more in the past 4 years than I could ever imagine.

Opportunites are constantly being presented to us as we live our lives, but often we are not ready to accept them. So, they pass us by and may never come again. Your life goes down this path instead of that.

Writing my Lifebook and continuing to evolve my Lifebook has prepared me to be ready. Not only am I ready, but I create opportunities based on my Life Vision. It really is amazing what we have the power to create in our lives. The choice is up to us. We are the driver. We get to choose. We write the story of our lives.

Lifebook is the vehicle to write my life story, to live my life vision, and to fulfill my life’s purpose.

Thank you!

25 Powerful Quotes to Awaken Your Wisest Self in 2017
03Jan 2017

“He wrapped himself in quotations, as a beggar
would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors.”
-Rudyard Kipling

There’s no denying the power and potency of quotations.

Humans have used them as inspiration and guidance for thousands of years, like road signs from all the wise men who walked the path before us… Like little glowing gems of insight that shine their light and lead us closer to our truth.

The wisdom they contain floods our imagination, and reflects to us the same wisdom that lies hidden within our own heart and soul.

Here are 25 powerful quotes to help awaken your wisest, most illuminated self in the coming year…

“There is a dance only you can do, that exists only in you, here and now,
always changing, always true. Are you willing to listen with fascination?
If you are, it will deliver you unto the self you have always dreamed you could be.
This is a promise.”
– Gabrielle Roth

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe,
deserve your love and affection”
– Buddha

“Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual,
you have an obligation to be one.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt

“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own.
No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame.
The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.
This is the day your life really begins.”
– Bob Moawad

“You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked.
Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”
– Louise L. Hay

“Love begins at home – with yourself. The more you learn to appreciate yourself,
the more you realize that you, not your partner, are the source of your own [happiness].”
-Margo Anand

The key point to understand is that prosperity is an internal experience, not an external state,
and it is an experience that is not tied to having a certain amount of money.
-Shakti Gawain

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
―Lao Tzu

“If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet;
how important you can be to people you may never even dream of.
There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
– Fred Rogers

“True belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world.
Our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”
― Brené Brown

“You are very powerful, provided you know how powerful you are.”
– Yogi Bhajan

“Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one’s own sunshine.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

“There is nothing noble about being superior to some other man.
The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.”
– Hindu Proverb

“Maximize the power of the beliefs that strengthen you and neutralize those that weaken you.”
– Rosalene Glickman, Ph.D.

“Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.”
-George Addair

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.
So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.
This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
-Steve Jobs

“Savor life: don’t just breathe it in; exhale the moment to intake the next.”
-KC Rhoads

Don’t get discouraged; it is often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day
that says I’ll try again tomorrow.
-Mary Anne Radmacher

“Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth”
-Pema Chödrön

“Our deepest wounds and our soul are intimately related.
If we journey far enough into the inner landscape of our wounds,
we discover there the mysteries of destiny.
Our wounds are essential facilitators in our soul lives.”
-Bill Plotkin

“There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful
as expectation of something better tomorrow.”
-Orison Swett Marden

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream;
not only plan, but also believe.”
–Anatole France

“The vision is one of wholeness, of embracing everything, because every situation,
whether pleasant or unpleasant, is an opportunity to become more aware about who you are
and how you can expand your capacities.”
-Margo Anand

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
– George Eliot


11 Meaningful Ways to Celebrate the New Year
27Dec 2016

By Jessi Kohlhagen

It’s been said that New Years Day (and how you choose to spend it) sets the intention for the entire year to come.

For this reason, January 1 will always find my family and I wandering outside, basking in Nature. This is our way of grounding, cherishing what’s most important, recommitting to being the best human beings we can be, giving thanks for the limitless abundance all around us, and honoring our roots.

However you choose to celebrate, this is a beautiful invitation to step into some of the most meaningful experiences you want to create for yourself… to actually embody them, give them a felt sense in your life, and allow your entire year to grow from that space.

Here are 11 meaningful ideas for celebrating this New Year:

Spend Time In Nature

As I mentioned above, this can be a powerfully healing and inspiring experience. See if you can invoke absolute presence and contentment wherever you stand — nowhere to get to, nothing to do. Just observe the world around you, from the smallest leaves to the limitless sky above. Go on an adventure. Commune with the Nature that exists all around and within you. See what you see, find what you find, go where you go.

Do A Reflection Ritual By Candlelight

This article would be incomplete if it didn’t include the year-end reflection ritual Lifebookers have come to love so much. It looks something like this: light some candles, brew a cup of hot cocoa or pour a glass of champagne, and settle in for a few hours of open-hearted honesty and reflection by the fireside. Go through the simple but powerfully thought-provoking questions one-by-one, and let this magical process invite greater truth, acceptance and growth into your life. More…

One Young Woman’s Life-Changing Lifebook Experience
26Jul 2016
Comments Off on One Young Woman’s Life-Changing Lifebook Experience

By: Felicia Drayton


I’d have to say a lot has really happened. Just prior to the start of Lifebook I accomplished the goals I had for myself for the prior year such as having a $1000 in checking, $5000 in savings, studying Spanish, achieving my bachelor degree, obtaining a job that pays $50,000+ a year, and having a healthy and active lifestyle.

I was worried that I wouldn’t know what else to do with myself honestly because my life had changed so much already, but I didn’t want to get stuck, stagnant or become routine where life isn’t exciting for very worth living. I knew that Lifebook would help me keep the momentum going or help me gain momentum in areas I know I didn’t often look at or even consider a category to make a goal of.

After much contemplation, I’ve come to really consider the things that would really make my life wonderful, happy, enriched and worth living.

I feel like I have gained ownership of my destiny, of my future.

I’ve learned it’s not so much about the rat race as it is about the experiences in life, the memories you make, the personal goals you set and accomplish that empowers us and brings us to life, especially for when it comes to building great relationships with myself and others.

I have a stronger sense of integrity due to having a daily ritual that allows me time for myself that I never felt I had before Lifebook (on days other than my days off of work). I have organization such as a budget, sleep schedule, daily journaling, exercises and productivity such as reading, studying Spanish, and researching natural health. My life has never had a better flow and I can feel the momentum of old ways dissipating more and more everyday.

I’ve never had more confidence in knowing exactly what I want to do in all 12 categories of my life.

A vision of becoming a naturopathic doctor once felt impossible, but with Lifebook I’ve realized that in order to fully become the person I want to become, this is exactly what I need to work toward. Plans may change along the way, but with focused action, it’s no longer impossible.

I’m possible.

Jeb’s Personal Blueprint to Excellence

Comments Off on Jeb’s Personal Blueprint to Excellence

Creating your life consciously is something I never thought about. I’ll tell you what I did think about: creating my lunch consciously. That’s about the timespan and consciousness of planning I had in my life previous to this course. Even at that, my lunch changed half the time.

I had some goals, but really having a method and an awareness of taking the time to dissect them in a way that can be introduced in small and meaningful ways was never present before. This journey started with a commitment to others in my life, and ended with a commitment to everything in my life.

Creating lifebook is literally creating a personal blueprint to reach excellence in every aspect of your life. More…

Finding the courage to walk through life’s doors

Comments Off on Finding the courage to walk through life’s doors

Written by: Lifebook Member John O.

In health and wellness, I was inspired to begin meditation on a nightly basis.

I have never meditated before. I have no training in meditation nor have I ever read about it. I simply closed my eyes, took deep breaths and cleared my mind.

At the end of a 15-minute session, I had a vision.

I was standing in front of a wall of locked doors. I had unlocked several but it was clearly taking me a long time to open each door. I looked up and saw that the wall extended on forever in all directions. I felt frustrated. I felt like I would never have enough time to get to all my doors.

I then saw my group at Lifebook, all standing in front of the doors in their lives, some locked, some unlocked, and some opened. Some were unwilling to walk through and some had their doors wide open for us all to see. Each member had their keys in their hands. Some were banging their heads and hands on their doors. There was so much sadness, stress, frustration and uncertainty. More…

6 Powerful Habits That Are Changing Robert’s Life

Comments Off on 6 Powerful Habits That Are Changing Robert’s Life

I can remember attempting to be strong and reassure my fiancee’ that Lifebook was going to be something amazing; yet I had no idea what it really was. I was out on a limb.

What I did know, was I pushed all my chips in to be part of a massive project for my career. I was under the impression that Lifebook would be a nice little off shoot of this project. It took only a couple weeks after being in the lounge to quickly realize that Lifebook was the foundation of the major project I pushed my chips in for.

I felt I had a clear vision of where I wanted to go in most areas of my life, yet, my purpose and strategies were beyond unclear. After 4 days of what most of you know to be a mindspin, I was at my best!

I felt CRYSTAL clear on my vision and felt I could breath fire with the strategies written in front of me.

My fiancee pulled out amazing things too that she had no idea where crushing her path to the lifestyle we both wanted.

We have been working so diligently over the past 10 weeks implementing things on multiple levels. More…
