The Million Dollar Formula

"What's the hardest part to creating life the way you want it?" a friend asked me over lunch. I thought for a moment and replied, "Learning to stop figuring out how you will get what you want."

My friend looked confused. She asked, "What do you mean?"

"If you try to figure out how you will get that new car, or that new house, or that new relationship, you'll limit yourself to what your ego can see and do," I explained. "Turn your goal over to your unconscious, which is connected to the spirit of everything and everyone, and let it bring the goal to you and you to the goal. Just follow your inner promptings and act on the opportunities that come your way, and you'll get there."

Well, I'm not sure if my friend understood what I was saying. But a few days later I was sitting in a limousine, being driven to have dinner with eight wealthy, wonderful, self-made people. All of these people started with nothing. Many of them started as I had: With empty pockets and hope in their hearts. As I sat in the limo, a part of me couldn't believe I was there.

"How did I get here?" I remember thinking to myself. "I'm in a beautiful limo, with beautiful people beside me, going to have a beautiful dinner that some other beautiful person is going to pay for. I'm just a nobody kid from Ohio who left home to find fame and fortune. I used to dig ditches, drive trucks, work in the dirt, the rain, and the heat, and for never enough money to pay my bills. How'd I get in this limo?"

The secret to increasing your business or manifesting whatever you want is:

1. Know what you don't want.

2. Select what you do want.

3. Clear all negative or limiting beliefs.

4. Feel what it would be like to have, do, or be what you want.

5. Let go. Act on your intuitive impulses and allow the results to manifest.

Truth is, there's no "one way" to achieve anything in this world. Some people get new cars by winning them, others by struggling to pay for them, others by happily paying for them, others by other means. What I told my friend at lunch is the truth: You can't orchestrate the world to do your bidding. Instead, state your intentions and let the world arrange itself to bring your goals to you. I was in that limo because I didn't plan to be in it. I allowed, acted, trusted, and accepted.

I followed the five-step formula. And when the limo pulled up, I got in. Finally, I can't find any better way of ending this book then with this quote from Frances Larimer Warner, written in 1907. When I was interviewed on a late night talk show one evening, they asked me to read this quote to them twice. Then they were silent for a moment while the meaning of these words hit home. I'll end this book with those same words, and wish you "God speed" in making all your dreams come true. And when your limo pulls up, get in!

"If we plant a seed in the ground we know that the sun will shine and the rain will water, and we leave it to the Law to bring results...Well, the desire you image is the seed, your occasional closing of the eyes in imagery is the sun, and your constant, though not anxious, expectation is the rain and cultivation necessary to bring absolutely sure results..." -- Frances Larimer Warner, Our Invisible Supply: Part One 1907

Meanwhile, my adventures continue and my life is one of magic and miracles. How do I stay clear and focused? I work with several people these days to keep myself on track. .

Ann Taylor Harcus is the person I've been working with most recently. I first heard of her because of her ad in New Age Journal. Her ad has a "magnetic charge" to it. The ad said she heals people on a cellular level. She has helped more than 10.000 people, so far. She's endorsed by Dr. Bernie Siegel. The ad went on to list some of the problems she has helped people release: Health issues, many problems, allergies, anger, fear, relationship issues there's an impressive list in the ad. It almost sounds too good to be true. But the add also says you can have a free 15-minute phone consultation with her, to get a sense of her work. I called, met Ann by phone, and have been working with her ever since. If you want to work with someone to help you achieve your dreams, I offer Ann. Her website is at http://www.innerhealing.com. Her email is Miracles22@aol.com. Her phone is 1-816-478-0722 or toll-free 1-888-816-7822.

Suggested Reading and Listening Books and tapes can keep your mind focused on the positive and help you keep going toward your dreams. The following are my suggestions for extra fun. I've only listed the books that are still in print. With a little searching you can also find countless other wonderful books, now out of print, to keep your inner fires stoked. Just pick whatever title calls to you and enjoy it. As you complete that book, you'll be led to others. Relish the journey, my friend! You're in for a treat!
