MAKE THE LEAP FROM SIMPLY SURVIVING… TO THRIVING.
Are you – as a family – finally ready to start thriving as you raise your kids on the autism spectrum?
Way too many CLAIM they are, but aren’t really ready to commit what it takes. Are you? Here’s why I ask.
WE WERE EITHER GOING TO FAIL HORRIBLY… OR THRIVE… AS A FAMILY.
There was a time when it was SO hard we were… well, frankly, we were FAILING AS A FAMILY. My wife and I were always arguing way too much, our typical kids were struggling with feelings of neglect and we were in a terrible downward cycle.
I’ve heard that the stress and tension in an autism home can equal that of a combat soldier. I’ve never been in combat, but I have never felt the kind of tension and stress our family was suffering from.
One Saturday morning we suffered through a REALLY HARD 4+ hour meltdown with one of our sons. You know the kind, right? There were holes kicked in walls, my son had smashed his head through a window and my 2 older “typical” sons were hiding and simply afraid.
Because of the stress, it caused my wife and I to get in to a real bad argument.
You know, we want to blame someone and sometimes we take our stress out unfairly on each other. I’m sure in retrospect, that’s what was happening.
Anyway, I walked out of the house – just to cool off – and as I walked around, I thought… “This isn’t what I signed up for.” Then I remembered something my Dad had taught me when I was a younger athlete when he told me, “If you’re ever toward the end of a game and you’re losing you have two choices. One is to give up – the other is to say to yourself, I’m going to do everything in my power to win. I’m not going down without a fight… and give it everything you have in your heart.”
Then he said, “I recommend you tell yourself, I AIN’T GOING DOWN LIKE THIS” and fight like crazy with everything you have. If you’re going to lose, go down with the biggest effort anyone has ever seen.”
So at that moment, I walked over to a big Pecan tree, fell to my knees is prayer and said, “I ain’t going down like this” and plead with God to help me.
After a lot of prayer and quite a few tears, I walked in to my wife and apologized, because I’m sure I said some things I shouldn’t have said.
Then I said, “This is not what I signed up for.” When she said it back to me I remember we decided right then and there that we were going to fix our family. We didn’t know how or what to do, but we were committed.
Here’s what we did know however. We weren’t going to try and fix our sons on the spectrum. We were going to fix the way we managed the situation.
But here was the problem. There were no guides, no books, no training on how to experience happiness and joy AS you raised kids on the spectrum. We could find nothing.
So we decided, we’d create the guide AS we worked to fix our family. So, as a family, we decided that no matter what happened in the future, we would try our best to LEARN to THRIVE in our situation.
Simply surviving was not an option anymore (frankly, it was TOO HARD) and was not an acceptable outcome. We determined we would work as hard as it took to FIND the joy and happiness in our lives no matter what happened moving forward.
Are you at that point… because…
THRIVING WILL REQUIRE A DIFFERENT MINDSET THAN YOU’RE USED TO.
We’re looking for families who are willing to commit. Families who are ready to take a leap of faith. Families who know they CAN’T keep living like they are. Families who DON’T WANT to keep living like they are.
We understand. We want to help you.
Trying everything you can think of (just because it SOUNDS good) doesn’t work. You’ve got to spend sacred time on the right things in the right way at the right time
YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT ACTIONS TO TAKE AND WHEN.
What if you could leverage our families experience?
You may be asking, “Who are you guys? Why should we trust that you can really help us?” Great question.
We can teach you the IN’S and the OUT’S. We can show you what worked and what didn’t. We’ve documented, learned and LIVE what we share. We’ve developed a reputation as THE go-to family for those that are ready to THRIVE.
We’ve written a book. It’s called Thrive In Chaos. You can get it here if you’d like to read about us: www.amazon.com/Thrive-Chaos-Kyle-Alek-Jetsel/dp/1940847982

And we’re not just talking about ONE-TIME RESULTS. We’re talking about LONG-LASTING RESULTS BASED ON PRINCIPLE BASED TECHNIQUES.
Practice makes perfect.
Nonsense. Practice makes permanent.
Too many people are practicing tactics that are “just plain wrong” and making them permanent.
We’ll share with you the principles (The Pillars to THRIVE) behind all we do.
THEN… your actions (and practice) will FIT in to the “PRINCIPLES” that have been proven to work… over and over… and over.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: WE ALREADY EXPERIENCE HAPPINESS; DO WE STILL NEED THIS?
A: If you find yourself ever thinking or saying, “I don’t think I can take this anymore” this may be for you. If you find yourself trying to escape your circumstances, this may be for you. https://www.facebook.com/AutismLaughterTherapy/videos/1394587850586709/
If you’d like to create a family where everyone wants to be together and your home is a place of refuge and happiness – even when it gets hard, this may be for you.
IS MAKING THE LEAP RIGHT FOR YOUR FAMILY?
I want to be clear. This isn’t for most families. This isn’t a laundry list of tricks and techniques to learn to cope.
This is heavy-duty, life changing stuff.
MAKE THE LEAP IS NOT FOR YOU IF…
- You want to FIX your child on the spectrum
- You’re already handling things – every time – in the very best way possible
- You simply want to learn techniques. This is principle based information that will require more depth of understanding and work to put in to practice
- You won’t commit the time to implement what you’ll learn
- You think you already know everything
MAKE THE LEAP IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF…
- You’re already working hard and just want to get better results from your efforts
- You feel kinda stuck and want to get better results from your massive efforts
- You’re committed to learning to challenge yourself and take the time to learn to do things right, then taking the RIGHT action
- You understand the VALUE of a long-term commitment to overwhelming joy and happiness
WHAT WILL YOUR FAMILY LOOK LIKE IN 2 YEARS? 5 YEARS? 10 YEARS?
Take a long hard look at what you’re doing. If you expect it to “Just Get Better” that’s not a very good plan.
Is it getting easier or harder? Are you still experiencing the same turmoil? What will change in the next 2 to 5 years? Will you be prepared for your child to hit (gulp) puberty? What is your plan?
What will you do to go from simply surviving to THRIVING?
We can show you the real-life nuts and bolts of THRIVING. No hype involved; no smoke and mirrors. Just real-life, here’s how you do it TODAY information.
We know how to get where you want to go. Do you REALLY want to learn?
