Lifebook stories on boosting motivation

“Now at the age of 51, I have the body back that I had at 17”

Lifebook stories
Gabby W., Lifebook Online student

“When I did Lifebook in the spring of 2017 I came across Jon’s picture of his body at the age of 29 and 49. The picture fascinated me and challenged my subconscious to believe that everybody has to look and feel old just because it has been born a certain number of years ago.

The picture also inspired me to set a goal for myself in the Health & Fitness category to get the body back that I had at 17. I was never terribly overweight but the weight just kept creeping up a little bit every year since I was 20, no matter what I did.

Over the past 10 months, I have completely changed my diet and exercise and now at the age of 51, I have the body back that I had at 17! I hope this picture will challenge some more subconscious beliefs and inspire others to do the same.”

Gaby W., Germany

“Lifebook has helped me find my way back into the ever-flowing river of life”

Lifebook reviews
Sophia Nunner, Lifebook Online student

“I could write a book on what and how much I’ve learned during this Lifebook journey. This is my first personal growth program, and I don’t think that I need any other, ever. I give you all my gratitude for creating this absolutely amazing program. In every little detail, one can see that this is pure passion in there. And that’s what it makes it so unique and powerful, in my opinion. So, thank you for that!

I’ve already been on my way back to the bright side, since around Christmas last year. But Lifebook has definitely turbocharged everything and given me immense power.

Lifebook has helped me find my way back into the ever-flowing river of life. It has helped me to order my thoughts, and my ideas, and gave me tons of inspiration and the confidence to create my very personal and unique life vision. I discovered that I already have a truly amazing life, but I’ve always focused on the negative, so I could barely see it. I’ve learned that I don’t need to wait for anything or anyone to live the life of my dreams. I don’t need to wait for the government to change, I don’t need to wait for or try to make the people change, my job change, my friends change. I can’t find anything on the outside that I’m lacking inside. I’ve found out that I am everything I need. 

Therefore, I simply need to BE the change I want to see in the world. And everything falls into place. So little, and yet so much.”

Sophia Nunner, University Student, Austria

“Loved the program and excited to keep moving forward, beat cancer and have the life I envisioned!”

Lifebook stories
Patty Cruz, Lifebook Online student

“In March of 2022, I discovered that I had breast cancer and the health journey has been challenging. I was looking for something that would keep me inspired, help me go through chemo, and make it worth going thru treatments to “make it to the other side” of this. 

Cancer and treatments slowed down the fast pace of my life and I used it to reflect and lay the foundation for what it is that I want to create. 

In Lifebook, I found the structure to follow to help me define what it is that I want in each category of my life, dream about it, and set the foundation to create it. 
Loved the program and am excited to keep moving forward, beat cancer and have the life I envisioned!”

Patty Cruz, Consultant, Austin, United States

Lifebook reviews on finding clarity and purpose

“What a game-changer in one’s life plan”

Lifebook stories
Jean-Pierre Perreault, Lifebook Online student

“Hi ! Wow! Lifebook. What a game-changer in one’s life plan. I truly encourage everyone to go through that process in his or her life. Personally, That’s what I needed to step forward. 

After separation, and with the 2020 pandemic which dragged my business down, I needed a boost to clear my mind of the mess the last few years had brought to my life. Lifebook has helped me to clarify the vision I have for my life. I tried to keep it to simple strategies to implement. Fortunately, a few categories were already doing fine. So, keeping these alive and even increasing the level of these spheres of my life has helped me to engage more easily in the ones I truly needed to make better; like the social and emotional categories. That’s when digging into the Lifebook program helped me the most. I wouldn’t say it is perfect yet; but at least, I clearly know where are the gaps and breaches to fill. 

I also have all visions of each category thought through for the first time in my life. The process is in progress, and I feel in control. 
Thanks, Missy and Jon! As well as to everyone sharing their stories in the discussions!” 

Jean-Pierre Perreault, Pain Expert and Speaker, Montréal, Canada

“I just couldn’t get enough of this program, I was like eating this stuff for breakfast!”

Lifebook reviews
Craig Anderson, Lifebook Online student

“Throughout my entire life, I have always had a clear vision of the life I wanted and truly believed I deserved but it has always been out of reach. I often felt like there had been some kind of mix-up somewhere in the universe, and I was born into the wrong life. I felt I was living behind a glass wall from the life I was destined for. I could see it, but I was never able to detail it or relate it to others for fear of being labeled delusional and a dreamer. 

Now, thanks to Jon and Missy for having the courage to open themselves up and make Lifebook universally available, I have that clear vision documented for the first time and I can articulate it.

I chose to do the journey at my own pace, partly because I learn better this way and partly because I just couldn’t get enough of this program.

I am truly grateful to Jon and Missy for their inspiration and the hard work they, and all the Lifebook team, have done to make this available to ‘joe public’ like me. Thank you all so much.”

Craig Anderson, Systems Software Developer, Lisbon, Portugal

“Lifebook provides an amazing path for my journey”

Lifebook student
Tri Nuraini, Lifebook Online student

“Before I joined the program, I was jumping around so many resources working on my own personal growth journey. They are amazing indeed, and I am thankful for so many benefits from them, but then I realized that I need some clarity on what it is that I actually want and what kind of life I actually want to create. 

Lifebook provides an amazing path for my journey, I found clarity about who I am and who I want to become. I have never been so clear in my whole life, looking at my life in 12 categories, and envisioning my future from my deepest core. Now, I am more focused on my goals and I am confident that I can create the life that I envisioned. Lifebook has driven me to raise my consciousness to a whole new level, I am more purposeful in everything I do. 

Life feels even more magical when I put everything down in my Lifebook. Not only that I started taking inspired actions, but I am also surrounded by people who support my growth and goals. During working on my Lifebook, I made an important decision in embarking on my new career path, I ‘accidentally’ found a mentor and a coach to help me in categories that I need to improve, and I made beautiful friendships where we support each other in our Lifebook journey. 

I love my Lifebook so much, I look at it every day and I am excited to embrace the life that I have envisioned. I know in my heart that I am getting closer to my life vision each day. 

I am humbled by the guidance provided by Jon and Missy Butcher. I am forever grateful for them and Mindvalley for bringing this quest to life.”

Tri Nuraini, Life Coach, Jakarta, Indonesia

Lifebook reviews on living life to the fullest

“After the program, my love life changed. It feels like almost overnight”

Lifebook student
Rondi Pruitt, Lifebook Online student

“You cannot go through this program and not make changes. 

Before this program, my 12-category assessment scores were lower in almost half of the categories. I do not have a bad life but I did not know how to identify strategies for improvement. I did not have a way to identify what areas I needed to focus on. 

During the program, I was able to bring awareness to different parts of my life that I have not really focused on. One category I didn’t realize I was taking for granted was the love category. I’m in a happy marriage but there was something missing. When you bring awareness you are no longer able to ignore that part of your life. When you bring consciousness to your life you want to make it better. Now I am focusing on all areas of my life.

After the program, my love life changed. It feels like almost overnight. I am more in love with my husband and we are connecting on a much deeper level. I decided I wanted an amazing love life and why I wanted it. I made a shift in myself and that shifted our marriage in the process. You cannot go through this program and not make changes. I am grateful for this program.”

Rondi Pruitt, Financial Clearance Manager, Kansas City, United States

“I was able to organize my thinking, renew my vision for my life, and gain clarity on my life”

Lifebook student
Marianne Clyde, Lifebook Online student

“I was experiencing some burnout from the struggle to take two non-profits through COVID. 
One survived the other did not. 

I retired from a 30-year career as an award-winning therapist and businesswoman and bestselling author feeling rather depleted. 

I took about 5 months to travel, rest, and then discovered Mindvalley; I took several quests which helped pull me out of my slump. This led me ultimately to Lifebook where I was able to organize my thinking, renew my vision for my life, and gain clarity on my life, my relationships, and my purpose. 

Amazingly, I have become so inspired again to gain control and get energized to get back out there and refuse to tolerate a mediocre life. 
I feel younger, stronger, and re-empowered to use my energy and wisdom once again to encourage and empower women around the world that they matter, their lives matter and their gifts and wisdom are essential to change the world.”

Marianne Clyde, Retired, Warrenton, United States

“Within the six-week journey, my eyes opened to the subtleties that have been holding me back for years”

Lifebook student
Karen McFarlane Holman, Lifebook Online student

“Before Lifebook, I was actually doing great, scoring 111 (Excellent). However, after going through the process, I realized that I probably would have just maintained the status quo without the awareness that Lifebook brought me. 

Staying at the Excellent level would have been fine, right? But I don’t want just “fine” – I want to blow this life out of the water.

Within the six-week journey, my eyes opened to the subtleties that have been holding me back for years. I have stepped up my game significantly in two categories, and I can already see that two more are about to level up. I’m thrilled beyond words that my amazing life is already here – today I took my post-assessment and I scored 126 (Extraordinary)! 
Thank you, Jon & Missy!!”

Karen Mcfarlane Holman, Inorganic Chemistry Professor, Salem, United States

Lifebook: Is It for Me?

Maybe Mindvalley’s Lifebook reviews inspired you to take a closer look at what could happen if you took full responsibility for creating your dream life. 

If you have doubts about whether Lifebook is the next step for your life transformation, you can ponder on the advantages that it can bring. However, as for any other self-actualizing journey, there might be moments of hardships that you have to consider.

Lifebook is for you if you’re committed to…

  • Getting clear. Maybe you’ve been having problems not knowing what you want from your life. That happens because sometimes it may be difficult to see your life vision as a whole from the beginning. This is why Lifebook helps you find clarity step by step by sectioning your life into 12 categories.
  • Finding purpose. Your motivation is your fuel to power through life changes and challenges. Defining your purpose will guide you to achieve the life you desire.
  • Setting goals. Having clear goals on everything you want to accomplish acts like a roadmap presenting you with every single step you need to take.
  • Discovering your setbacks. The things keeping you stuck might be easier to remove from your life than you’d have expected. Through Lifebook, you become more aware of what’s holding you back.

Lifebook is not for you if you’re not committed to…

  • Taking full responsibility. Once you start defining your life vision, you realize how much power you truly have over what your life looks like. And as the saying goes, with great power comes great responsibility.
  • Keeping yourself motivated. Maybe you get all excited about the new life waiting for you and that’s amazingly powerful. However, sometimes keeping the motivation constant after the initial enthusiasm fades out might be a bit of a challenge.
  • Letting go of what no longer serves you. Making space for great people, opportunities, and experiences in your life requires letting go of the old. While you’re changing, you should consider that some people and experiences won’t resonate with you anymore and will slowly fade away. 
  • Creating new habits and routines. As Albert Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” So creating new habits that will serve you is a must in building a new exciting way of living. The results won’t cease to follow.
