[Mindvalley] 12 Dimensions of Mastery (Lifebook Challenge)

Mindvalley – 12 Dimensions of Mastery (Lifebook Challenge)

Format Included: Mp4, PDF, Mp3
Dimension: 1920x1080p
Files In Total: 71

The Lifebook Quest
In Just 30 Days, Emerge With A Complete Vision For Your Entire Life
Powered By Mindvalley’s New Quest Learning Methodology, Lifebook 30-Day Quest takes you into Jon Butcher’s precise methodology to examine 12 important areas of your life and create precise visions and strategy to move each to the next level.

This course is for people who refuse to live ordinary lives and are willing to level up their game to create extraordinary results in 12 different dimensions of their life that modern education overlooked.
Here’s a secret that many of the world’s top performing people know:
Our schools and universities do not teach us the actual skills that lead to success. Not by a wide shot. They were designed to create cogs in the wheels of industry. But not men or women who truly live remarkable lives of happiness, meaning and success.
Thus, most of these truly successful men and women take their initiatives to define success.
Lifebook was a method started by one such man. Jon Butcher lives a life so unusual he could be a candidate for those famous Dos Equis “The World’s Most Interesting Man” commercials. But what makes him unique is that his life was planned and curated….every bit of it…using a method called Lifebook.
Today, Lifebook Members are outliers who ignore the traditional definitions of success our broken education system teaches us. Instead they live a life of their own design, achieving unprecedented levels of success, happiness and fulfillment in all of the most important areas. Areas that traditional education has so far missed.

What You’ll Learn
Twelve Ways The Lifebook Challenge Will Transform You
In Lifebook Challenge, we’re going to look DEEPLY at what having it all MEANS, what it LOOKS LIKE and whether it’s possible for you. Jon will share secrets and best practices in each of the categories, explore how to eliminate the obstacles that are holding you back, keeping you frustrated and stuck – and then we’ll share powerful exercises with you that will move the needle IMMEDIATELY in the following 12 categories of your life.

01 Health & Fitness
While many people struggle to be in control of their health, you will have a system to put you in great physical shape, one that will help you look good and feel great and be strong and vibrant. This category also has immense effect on the other categories of life.

02 Intellectually
You will know exactly what you need to do to be fulfilled and challenged. This is an incredibly important and often overlooked area of life. You will have a system to be creative and process the ideas that are coming to you.

03 Emotionally
You will start being more joyful and FEEL GOOD the vast majority of the time — this is key to having the Lifebook system work for you. You’ll get the recipe to create emotions at will so you can be in full control of your feelings.

04 Character
We usually don’t get trained to set goals for our character. In Lifebook, you will pay attention to your character and shape it to become strong and solid with high self-esteem and an overall feeling of pride about the person you are.

05 Spirituality
Very few people have taken time to sit down and define their spirituality. In Lifebook, you’ll not only define it, but you will also understand the value of spiritual fulfillment, will be in touch with your purpose in life and actually start living that purpose.

06 Romance
If you’re married, you will shift gears and move towards a fantastic marriage, not a mediocre one. A passionate, loving relationship – a great sex life – with mutual respect and admiration. If you’re single, you will have a strategy to attract your soul mate.

07 Parenting
If you’re a parent or you want to be one some day, you will know exactly what to do to be the BEST parent you can be and set an amazing example for your children about how to live a great life.

08 Social
Studies show that nothing correlates with your happiness more than your social connections. In Lifebook, you’ll learn how to consciously create your extraordinary social life and build friendships that nourish you and pull your life forward.

09 Career
You will have in your hands your values for a successful career that stimulates and fulfills you – where you look FORWARD to your work every day. For the first time, you’ll have clarity on the work you love and the work you’re good at.

10 Finances
You will radically transform your relationship with money, and learn the systems you can use to create financial abundance for yourself while creating value for others — and do that in a financial model that works so you can create wealth and have all the THINGS and experiences with the people you care about.

11 Quality of Life
You will transform your day-to-day lifestyle, and start valuing your quality of life more than anything in this world. You will start surrounding yourself with the things you want, the car you want to drive, the environment you want to be in and the adventures you want to take part in. The environment is extremely important. In Lifebook, you will have the strategies to create any kind of environment you want whether it’s creative, warm, inspiring or sensual.

12 Life Vision
You will tie together all that you’ve learned in the other categories and develop a single compelling vision for what you want to experience on a daily basis. All well-crafted life-visions entail having crossed a threshold to an extraordinary life where the heavy lifting has been DONE, and the urgency and stress are GONE. You’ve hit a tipping point where you’ve got your life figured out, and you’re enjoying it without this daily immense energy output that is exhausting, draining and overwhelming.
