Shelly’s story: The kind of success that matters most

I received a letter the other day from one of my former Breakthrough to Success participants — and what she had to say made my heart soar.

I’d like to share Shelly’s letter with you in its entirety because it demonstrates how you can achieve all the financial and career success in the world – but still feel empty inside. It’s also a great example of getting clear on what you REALLY want – and how visualization and intention setting can help make your biggest dreams a reality.

Here’s what she wrote:

Hello Jack,

First, let me say what a huge difference you have made to my life. I read The Success Principles years ago when it first came out and used its lessons to create success. I still have the highlighted, worn copy that I read regularly to gain inspiration.

You talk about tripling your income. I did that and then some. I got the house I always wanted to live in, the car, started to take amazing vacations, and was promoted regularly moving quickly up the chain.

However, this update is not about financial or material success – it is about family success. When I attended Breakthrough to Success in 2012 for the first time, I was in a long-term relationship that was stagnant. I was in my mid-thirties wondering what to do. I was lost and feeling off balance. I had achieved many of the financial and professional goals I had originally set for myself, but I felt like a failure on the personal side.

It felt as if I had traded one for the other – that I could not be successful in multiple areas of my life. Honestly, I was a bit arrogant about my professional success and I used it to avoid questions on my personal life, which, while not tragic, felt like a mess.

I went to Breakthrough to Success hoping to create more success professionally. However, it became abundantly clear how much I needed to focus on the personal side of my life when I had a breakdown moment on the first day just from the hug session.

By the end of the week I was inspired but still needed work. I knew I needed to gain more insight and break through the layers I had been hiding under. During the “Come as You’ll Be” party, I walked around telling everyone I was married to my future husband and had two kids – but these were the goals that seemed most daunting.

In 2013, I attended BTS again with these same intentions in addition to the professional goals I set for myself.

Fast forward now to 2015 – I am very happy to share that I have been able to manifest both of these big and seemingly unachievable goals through focus, meditation, and visualization.

My love and I had our marriage ceremony in Oct 2013 and we now have a seven-month old little boy. Using the visualization techniques I learned from you, I also was able to use hypnosis techniques to have a completely unmedicated birth! The hospital staff was amazed how quickly I was able to give birth (just three hours after getting to the hospital) by visualizing my son moving down. I was told I was smiling through the contractions. I would have never believed any of this was possible without attending Breakthrough to Success!

At the end of your sessions you ask for an update. This one was a few years in the making but the one I am most proud of achieving. I still have more big goals so once the little one is older I will be attending once again BTS to continue growing.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making a different in so many lives!

Thank YOU, Shelly, for sharing your story. I’m thrilled to hear that you have the family you desired for so long. Your story is an inspiration to us all!
