Since Brian Mayne created Goal Mapping in 1995, this system for success has touched the lives of over 4 million people. Among the many who credit their success to Goal Mapping is world-champion athlete, Katalin Kónya.

Dear Brian

I would like to start to express my gratitude to you for sharing your technique with the world. Here I would like to share my story with you to show how much you influenced my life.

I believe that Goal Mapping is a great tool to turn our dreams into reality. I was really happy when I saw that you will come to Denmark and hold a Goal Mapping seminar where I could learn how I can become a certificated life lifter. Even though I am unemployed at the moment I found the money to participate the course. But then something happened that made this plan impossible. At some point I was sad because I missed this opportunity but on the other hand I was the happiest person in the world.

The reason I could not participate at your course was that my first Goal Map I have ever made became reality. (maybe I could say it was your ‘fault’) :D

The weekend when you came to Copenhagen I had to be in Crete and fought kickboxing World Championship.

But let me tell a bit more about my story:

Maybe I can say that subconsciously I have used Goal Mapping earlier in my life. When I was 18 I have made a sign that said I will be the World Champion in Hungarian and I put it on my wall. But in 2005 I lost a really important fight and I thought I was a failure so I quit kickboxing. I stopped fighting but I have never stopped dreaming. I was dreaming about to become a World Champion since. Unfortunately that time I did not know how to work with the mental challenge I had after the fight.

About 2 years ago I reached a point in my life when I knew I needed some help. I started to read about personal development, nlp and other techniques. Day by day I applied these small techniques and I started to see changes in my life.

In December of 2012 I met a trainer who told me that he would like to open his own kickboxing club. I was really happy and I decided to start train again. In February of 2013 I participated my first kickboxing training after 8 years of break. From the very first moment I knew I found the right person to help me to be a World Champ. I told him about my dream and we made a promise to each other that we will do everything to reach our goal. I trained 6 days a week. We trained hard like I would fight World Championship tomorrow.

I have bought your Goal Mapping book in July of 2013 after I heard your name from Anthony Robbins. I ordered your book right away and I didn’t put it down until I finished reading. As soon as I finished I made my first Goal Map.

Then things started to happen pretty fast. At one training my coach told me that he was asked to be the national coach in kickboxing in Denmark. And he was asked to pick some people who could represent Denmark at WKU World Championship in October. He told me that he knew I was ready and I would be the best person to fight for the title. My dream came true.

On the 24th of October 2013 I became the WORLD CHAMPION!

As I said I believe that Goal Mapping is a perfect tool to make our dream come true. It helped me to use my mind on the right way. Thank you for sharing Goal Mapping with me! Luckily I will participate at ELEVATE 2013 in Copenhagen in November and hopefully I will have the chance to express my gratitude personally.

Have an outstanding day!

Kind regards,

Katalin Kónya,
WKU World Champion and future life lifter
