When you first subscribe, you fill out a survey to get to know you better and send you the perfect tools for your journey. The survey is quick with questions related to the type of books you like to read (spiritual, business, mind & body) and your line of work.
The introduction letter gives you simple pointers to get on your way to your goal, such as taking the time to write down your goal along with the date you want to achieve them.
The box was well packed and I can already see some tools I already use and treats! The theme is Goal Setting and Vision Board.
Loukin Screen Cleaner. These days, anyone uses phones, tablets, or computer and they are bound to get dirty!
The kit includes a screen cleaning spray and a microfiber cloth. They are perfect around the house for my computer and laptop, the VR glasses, the tv screen, and my phone.
Sharpie Fluorescent Yellow Highlighter. I can’t get enough highlighters in my life. I write a lot for my work, and I like to print out my texts and scribble on the paper and highlighters are a life saver. I also like to use them with my to-do list, and when I’m taking notes.
Post-it Flags – Blue. I use post-it flags more than I want to admit. I like the larger size to write down a word or two on the color side for an easy way to go back where I want in a book. I usually use a pencil as I find the pens will smear a bit.
Wood design Notebook. This classic notebook is sturdy so you don’t have to worry about throwing it in your bag.
It’s lined and comes with a bookmark, and closes with an elastic band. I like the design as it’s classy and gender neutral.
This month’s book is “The Magic of Thinking Big” by David J. Schwartz, ph.d. From Amazon :
The Magic of Thinking Big gives you useful methods, not empty promises. Dr. Schwartz presents a carefully designed program for getting the most out of your job, your marriage and family life, and your community. He proves that you don’t need to be an intellectual or have innate talent to attain great success and satisfaction—but you do need to learn and understand the habit of thinking and behaving in ways that will get you there. This book gives you those secrets!
Believe you can succeed and you will:
-Cure yourself of the fear of failure
-Think and dream creatively
-You are what you think you are
-Make your attitudes your allies
-Learn how to think positively
-Turn defeat into victory
-Use goals to help you grow
-Think like a leader
This sounds like an interesting read and I’m looking forward to thinking in a more positive way about my goals for 2019.
On top of the office staples we received, we also got these two sheets of paper. One is a Self-Confidence Formula, well needed when your project is not going the way it should be, or when you have a setback or criticisms. This formula is almost like a daily meditation to remind you of the person you want to become.
The second is a Let’s Take Action, 8 actions based on this month’s book “The Magic of Thinking Big” Success Principles.
We also received this useful chart to get the most out of the book and act on it in our life. I especially like the last question “What holds you back from thinking bigger” as this is a reminder that you deserve to think bigger and you need to face your fears to make it happen.
The last working tool we received are these Weekly Gratitude Lists. I like that we have one paper per week, and they fit nicely in the notebook so there are no excuses to not fill them out!
These two little cards are business card size, so you can carry them in your wallet every day as a quick reminder.
On the back of the “Muse Illuminate” card, we have a list of our monthly affirmations, and on the back of the other card, we have our main goal and its due date!
And of course, personal development wouldn’t be the same without a little treat! We received these Russell Stover Assorted Chocolates to eat while reading our new book and taking notes!
I was really happy with my Muse Illuminate. I really appreciate all the extra tools such as the chart, the Let’s Take Action card, and the Self-Confidence Formula to really dig deep in this month’s reading and get the most out of it. All the other goodies were nice and really useful to get in this box. This was a great box to help us work on our goals.
