free private victory starter kit

December 17th, 2013   |   SpiritThink About It


To show my gratitude for your support throughout 2013, I have five gifts planned for you over the next five days!  There are no outside sponsors or companies associated with these gifts. They are simply from me, to you.


Today I’m exciting to share a gift that everyone can enjoy!

As you know, I have been practicing the seventh habit of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (my favorite book of all time) since June and have seen it make a huge difference in my life.

I’m now such a huge proponent of the Private Victory (spending one hour a day on your mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing) that I started a Facebook group and mastermind group devoted to this oh-so-valuable habit.

Since there may be some people planning on trying this habit in 2014, I thought it would be a good idea to create a Private Victory Starter Kit.

This kit includes a pledge, a log to track your progress, inspirational quotes you can cut out and hang in your home, and a resource guide with suggested books, podcasts, and other resources you can use during your private victory time.

Remember, it is not important to do the same thing everyday, it is important that you devote the time to these three areas of your life daily.

On a personal note, a few people have asked me how I’m able to read so many books lately – I can honestly say that before this habit I always thought that I “didn’t have the time” to read. Now, by simply reading about 15-20 minutes from a spiritual book and 15-20 minutes from a non-fiction book, I am blowing through books pretty quickly. ((If you are curious about what I’m reading during my Private Victory, you can now check the blog sidebar.))

I can also sincerely say that I am a happier, kinder, more positive person when I have done my private victory in the morning. I’m more prepared and capable to take on the challenges of the day.

On the other hand, doing it in the morning is not required. Spend the time in chunks or all at once at some point during your day. That’s it.

As you know, I write this blog to help those looking to design their lives with intention. This single habit has proven to be the cheapest and most powerful habit I can offer.

But don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself!

    Thank you so much for sharing the private victory starter kit. Just downloaded it and I am looking forward to getting started on my own private victory’s this evening.

  • This is amazing! Thanks for sharing, Jess. I love my morning PV, and it’s helped me read more books this year too.

  • arin

    absolutely love this idea! we make time for what’s important — and spending time with ourselves is equally important! going to download this tonight, and get started right away 🙂 thanks for sharing! Heart of Chic

  • Exactly! I would go as far as to say that making time for ourselves and our abilities (in this habit, for example) is most important. We can only give others (kids, family, partner, career) what we are capable of. And this habit helps us become more capable so we have more to share. Truly.

    I hope you enjoy the habit!

  • Yay! That’s great to hear, Sage. : ) It really does make such a difference, doesn’t it?
