The keys to consistent progress in the direction of your dreams are clarity and focus.
But how do you gain that clarity and determine what to focus on? If these questions are tripping you up and keeping you going in circles, you’re not alone. They’re the most important questions but they’re also some of the most challenging to answer because they’re deeply personal.
When you want to change or improve your life, you have to know what that looks like first. I’m always working on clarifying that more and more for myself as I progress on my own journey of building my dream life and setting goals.
Mindvalley’s Lifebook Online spoke to me because of this, especially going into a new year where I’m focused on goal-setting and making plans. Its purpose is to help you get crystal clear on what you want in multiple areas of your life so you can take aligned action and continuously improve yourself along the way.

Mindvalley’s Lifebook Online Review
What is Lifebook Online?
Lifebook is one of the most popular personal development programs in the world. It was developed by Jon and Missy Butcher, a happily married couple of thirty years and serial entrepreneurs who both experienced financial and emotional hardship in their youth and climbed their way to the top.
They’ve built a life of wealth and purpose by following a system they’ve shaped over the years. They call it their “lifebook,” a book in which they’ve each collected wisdom, lessons, individual values, and notes on what lights them up in life in order to have a guiding light on how they want to live.
Their lifebooks have guided their actions for decades and they attribute their fulfillment in all areas to it because it’s kept them clear and focused on what they want in life. Whenever they’ve strayed off course, they’ve used it to find their way back. Over the years, as they’ve evolved, it’s evolved with them.
“Most people are so busy with what happened in their lives, they’re so busy on the treadmill of life, most people out there are overwhelmed and exhausted. They literally don’t have the time — well, actually they do, they don’t take the time — to really sit down and think through what their happiness and their fulfillment require, to understand the vision of the person you want to become and what the life you want to live is because without it, you don’t have a decision-making framework to guide your actions. If you have a life vision and you know exactly where you want to take your life, that’s your North Star. Every decision you make, every action you take, has to line up with that North Star.” — Jon Butcher, Founder of Lifebook
In the Lifebook Online program, they show you how to create your own lifebook so you can design a lifestyle that suits your individual values, beliefs, and desires. Though they don’t teach the program live anymore, it is now available online through Mindvalley.
Who the Class is For
This program is an all-encompassing personal development system that touches on every area of life so you can create a lifestyle that is uniquely fulfilling to you.
It’s well-suited to people at all stages in their personal development journey, whether you’re just starting out and feeling lost and unsure of where to begin, or if you’re further along but could benefit from something that pulls it all together.
If you are itching to expand and uplevel your life, or you’re feeling stuck and aren’t sure how to pull yourself out of a rut, then this program will probably greatly resonate with you.
Though there is a lot of wisdom and advice delivered throughout the program, the main focus is to take you on a journey of self-discovery. The goal is to dig deep and hone in on what you feel personally aligned with for different categories in life, so you know what “success” and “happiness” look like for you in a practical, tangible sense.
In every lesson, Jon poses thought-provoking questions for you to reflect on and gives you time to think and journal on them. The point of the program is not to just give out advice but to actively inspire true revelations and clarity on what you want in each category.
The program explores 12 key areas of life:
- Health & Fitness
- Love Relationship
- Quality of Life
- Life Vision
Ample time is dedicated to each category with lessons usually clocking in at around an hour and a half, which includes time for reflection and journaling. He shares his own answers to each question, as well as answers from other Lifebook students as examples so you have some guidance on what to be looking for to get the cogs turning.
To see if Lifebook Online is the right fit for you, you can start out with a free masterclass that will give you a taste of what to expect.
Whether you go on to take the full program or not, the free masterclass How To Have Unshakable Vision & Clarity In Times Of Uncertainty offers a lot of value on its own so I highly recommend checking it out to see if the content resonates with you.
I’ve read a lot of personal development books, taken several life coaching courses, and absorbed a lot of self-growth content over the years. This was definitely one of the most comprehensive and effective programs I’ve taken.
The concept of creating a “lifebook” that you can refer back to is a brilliant idea. Collecting everything in one place allows you to return to the lessons and revelations you’ve had in your personal development journey more easily to help with actually applying and internalizing them.
Lifebook Online is one of those resources that I’ll return to more than once for a refresher. While there wasn’t anything necessarily “ground-breaking” about the class, the material is presented in a very straight-forward, practical way that did get me thinking and I had some interesting realizations as a result. There were a lot of great reminders throughout the class that I’d heard before but it helps to hear them again, and from different perspectives.
What I like most about Lifebook Online is that the step-by-step process really takes you on a journey that pulls all of these different areas of your life together into a clear, focused blueprint. This kind of intense clarity is what makes a difference when you’re making life decisions, both big and small.
It’s a long program, but it’s well worth it.
