Who Pushed the Apple?

Two brothers sit beneath a tree after a long journey. One is a quantum physicist, the other a theologian. They are both hungry, and soon the wind blows and the tree sheds an armful of fruit. The physicist says, “How remarkable it is that my thoughts can cause the wind to blow so that the … Continue reading Who Pushed the Apple?

Adversity and Unifying the Family

Back when all my kids still lived at home: Tonight was our weekly family night, an evening set aside to spend time with the kids and improve our family relationships through activities and instruction. However, more often than we’d like, it’s actually the only family argument to open and close with prayer (as songwriter Michael … Continue reading Adversity and Unifying the Family

When Someone Steps on Your Hair

“Leaning into” your problem is less painful than pretending it doesn’t exist. One afternoon as I was playing with my kids, my sweet little two year-old stepped on my hair. The instant I felt the pain, I pulled away to get out from under her little feet. It was my instantaneous reaction, albeit not very … Continue reading When Someone Steps on Your Hair

Determination

Here is a tough question – one that is easy to answer when things are going well, but what about the times when the challenges are more than you can bear? When it looks as though all opposition is stacked against you, do you decide that the dream is just too far out of reach? … Continue reading Determination

Speeding up the Prosperity Process

As described in Hidden Treasures, the seventh law is the Law of Gender/Gestation. In a nutshell, it states that every seed in nature has a specific and finite gestation period before it reaches maturity. Our dream-seeds also have a finite gestation period, and must be held with belief, and nourished until they have sprouted and … Continue reading Speeding up the Prosperity Process

Where to put your focus

Here’s a question I received from a student at a State University. He writes: I’ve absolutely loved the Jackrabbit Factor and it’s been of great help. In fact. I’m hoping that when summer is over, I can purchase the program that you have to offer, so that I can fully comprehend the law of attraction … Continue reading Where to put your focus

Success via The Road Less Traveled

You are remarkable. Do you know that? That’s because you’re actively seeking to improve your life, or you wouldn’t be reading this now. And because of that, I also know you’re swimming upstream against the flow of mediocrity because most people just won’t bother.

Grateful for… Everything?

What would happen if you could feel grateful for EVERYTHING?
Is it even possible to feel grateful for everything? The fact is, feeling good about your problems literally activates certain laws of success for happier outcomes.
And who doesn’t want happier outcomes?
I talked about the following just two weeks ago, but this piece merits a repeat:
When you change how you feel, the nature of your surroundings begins to shift ever so slightly. People begin to respond to you differently. Someone who may not have had two words for you before may suddenly feel compelled to talk with you,… Read more

How many goals at a time?

One of my readers recently wrote: “I have a question. Can you have more than one goal at one time? Or is it too overwhelming for you and your mind?” That’s a really good question. Here are my ramblings on that: You can have as many goals as you want, but there should be an ultimate overall goal that steers the ship, and helps you determine all the other goals that you should set along the way. Before I talk about focusing on one versus juggling several, there are three things to consider: ~ What is my overall goal in life? ~ Do each of the smaller goals contribute to my overall prosperity goal? ~ Which goals must wait until

Finding Hope In Spite of Appearances

When you understand the laws of thought, it is possible to look at life’s problems and actually feel good about them. There are rewards for those who do this.
Hey there – this is going to be one of my deeper posts. I want to speak specifically to any of my readers who are dealing with something especially heavy.
Now, I’m about to throw some deep philosophical stuff at you. Heavy things merit a heavy discussion. So to begin with, read these next lines very carefully, one at a time. Consider each of them, and see if they ring true… Read more

Think Prosperously, Behave Frugally

Positive Thinking Tip: optimism will lead you to financial solutions, but be smart and live responsibly in the here and now.
Here is a question from one of my readers that I thought was worthwhile to share with  you.
Question:
How do you think, especially speak, feel, and act as though you are rich, and…
A. not spend money you don’t have?
B. still give positive responses as though the money is here now to people asking you to do things you don’t have the money for???
How do you “feel” like the money is here now, when you see… Read more

Prosperity Tip: “What if I Forget?”

“The solution to every problem is only an idea away.” — Portal to Genius
But what if you get the idea, and then forget what it was?
I was driving home one day and was pondering a really powerful “aha” moment. I thought, “Ooooh, I need to write that one down…” But by the time I could stop and commit the idea to paper, it was gone. It was one of those slippery fish that escaped before being speared by the pencil.
That really worried me, because every now and then I have a spark of inspiration that provides me… Read more

These Prosperity Laws Aren’t Working!

Here’s a question I received that I think is worth discussing. The reader said:
“Since reading the Jackrabbit Factor and feeling elated, it seems that our finances have gone down the tubes. I have not been able to pay bills on time, money is taking longer than usual to come in, we have bounced checks, etc. I know right now I am dwelling on the negative, but wondered why this is happening just at the time that I feel I have discovered the answer?”
Here’s my reply, somewhat modified:
When you’re aiming for big changes, it’s normal to face equally… Read more

Good in the midst of tragedy

I want to share a letter I received recently, because of how it illustrates so powerfully the fact that the principles are not only true for money, but for more important, eternal things:
Leslie,
I don’t think I’ve had the pleasure of meeting you in person yet, but I’ve been a fan of you since being introduced to the Jackrabbit Factor almost a year ago. I recently felt prompted (and even guided in how to approach it with my husband) to purchase the FTMF program during a sale. I knew it would be great, and the principles taught were powerful.… Read more

Nix the Scorekeeping

If you’re married and working toward a goal, sometimes living the principles can be especially challenging because deep down you have certain expectations of what your spouse is supposed to be doing.
Heck, it can be hard enough achieving goals with all the lofty expectations of what YOU are supposed to be doing!
At one time I had to come to terms with the fact that I was in another one of those “temporary seasons of imbalance” and decided to just hunker down and get through it. My husband agreed, and was there to support me, filling in gaps wherever… Read more

Unseen Help

there is unseen help. When your goal is detailed and clear, the help stays on task with maximum efficiency.
I love the idea that there is unseen help available when you set out to accomplish a difficult goal. However, there are things you must do, or you may never see EVIDENCE of that help.
I know you’ve probably heard this before, but one of those things is writing your goal down.
I thought I already understood this. In fact, I had been teaching seminars on that very concept for a decade. But then I learned a very expensive lesson.
In … Read more

Using the Vacuum Law to Replace a Car

An excellent question came in recently. This couple has been studying the book Hidden Treasures, and wanted to use the Vacuum Law of Prosperity as described in the final chapter to replace their car. Read their question, and then see how I answered them. (Names have been changed):
Question
“I re-read Hidden Treasures, finishing it last night with my wife. When we got to the bonus chapter about nature abhorring a vacuum, in the questionnaire it asks what is something we own that we don’t like. Well that would be our car, we still owe close to $6,000.00 on it.… Read more
