According to the results of a survey I just sent to my database, the number one thing people want to know is how to attract more money using the Law of Attraction. With that in mind, here are a few choice quotes to stimulate your thinking/attracting:

“The sole purpose of money is to express appreciation.” – Arnold Patent, Money

Think about it. When you write a check to pay a bill, do you grumble and complain, or do you feel grateful for whatever service you received? I admit for the longest time I would feel lousy when I paid my bills. Now I don’t. Per Patent’s insight, when you feel appreciation, you begin to attract more to appreciate. To attract money, appreciate money and what it brings you.

“Middle-class people talk about things that came from a millionaire’s idea.” – Keith Cameron Smith, The Top 10 Distinctions Between Millionaires and the Middle Class

I love that quote, too. It makes me stop and think. Whenever I find myself talking about some product or service I greatly admire  — such as a Bugatti Veyron super car worth over a million dollars — I stop and remind myself that it was just an idea. Someone created it. I’m now desiring it. But if you step back and look at the creative process, it was somebody with a dream, who took action, that got me and everyone else talking. To attract money, be the doer of what others talk about.

‘You have no idea what’s going on, but you’re in charge.” – Guy Monroe, Austin Vocal Lab

That quote might seem out of place in the world of attracting money, but consider: most of your life is directed by your unconscious. Ultimately, you have no idea what’s happening, or why. Yet in the midst of the seeming chaos is a captain who can steer the ship through the storm. That captain is you. When you declare where you want to go, you direct the ship, the crew, and the sail to go in that direction. This applies to money, too. Who’s in charge of your money, anyway?

“Prosperity allows us to turn our attention to more transcendent matters – to yearn for lives not just of material comfort but of meaning, balance, and joy.” – Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project

I love Gretchen’s book, The Happiness Project, and encourage you to read it. For now, her insight about money being a tool to elevate your thinking and desires is right on the money (no pun intended). When you think of money as bad or materialistic, you limit how much you can attract; but when you realize money is a symbol and a ticket to a higher state of being, you open the doors to attract all you’ll allow.

Just food for thought…

Ao Akua,

    Ahoy Joe,

    Another great article. Obviously I like the, “captain who can steer the ship through the storm” analogy. Too bad you don’t do boats.

    Your living full-time on a sailboat pirate friend,

    Joe, it had never occurred to me to see money is an expression of appreciation. I feel as if I’ve had an “Aha” moment! Next time I pay a bill, I will feel grateful for what that money has brought me….food, heat, clothing, fun, laughter, entertainment, the smiles of people I love…So glad I just read your post!

    Hello dear Joe Vitale.
    Excuse in advance for my unimportant English language.
    Resolve it will be presented:
    My name is Dmitry. I live in Russia in city Reutov, near to Moscow.
    I am a student.

    I write this letter to thank you for your books.
    I wish to thank you, that you have written the books and have allowed to translate them on Russian.
    Now your books are at us in Russia!

    When I have read through your book “KEY”, I began to think of my life more.
    It wanted to me to become kinder, more joyful, more noble.

    All people live in a society. And not always it turns out to be kind, noble. But your book helps people to become better.
    Now I have read through only one your book and the book has liked me. I am going to read through other your books.

    Thanks you! You help people to reflect освоей lives!
    You help people to make their life better!

    Thanks you!!!


    Yours faithfully to you.
    Dmitry S.

    Dear Dr. Joe Vitale:
    I think this will be a long post, because there so much i will like to tell you, some things related to how your book about the key help me continue growing to be a better person, a better human being in this world, and how is helping me to understand all the world arounds and enjoy my life
    Well, i first know you from the dvd of “The Secret” and af first i must say i feel sooo good when you talked about how to use the imagination, presonally, i loved the talk about the car
    But i also have a little feeling that was saying in my head “i don’t like this guy” and i always have that feeling, until a very good friend of my, actually, my spiritual advisor, a very old and wise woman, lend me your book about the secret key, the complement to the secret, and i realized about how wrong i was.
    Reading your book i arrived to your blog, and i’ve always been afraid to try to reach and communicate with people like you, but a frase in your book engraved in my mind “if you are afraid to do something, then you have to do it”, so here i im, trying to reach you and i hope we can get in touch
    My name is Pablo Neir Stegmaier, im from South America, i live in a town call Temuco, in Chile and even that it’s away from many things, the “secrets” start finding me. in my shorts, but intense 24 years, i have learned, since i was very small from oriental philosophy trough martial arts, then i learned how to meditate, but life gave me obstacles, and i got distant from all this things i learned, so i met my spiritual advisior, and i start to get in tocuh with all those thing and more, i learned metaphisics, the mayan culture and way of life, the mayan calendar a litlle of psicology and the secret, and well, people, because i recently finish my studies in the university and i gradute from Phisycal Therapy, and i can say that people can teach you some much,
    Well, what i try to say is that i will love to get in contac with you, maybe to have a talk and who knows, have a cigarrete together if we can ever meet each other.
    I think that i can learn much form you, and maybe give you something to learn.
    I hope you read this and write my and email.
    With all the good energy that i can give you
    Pablo (if you prefer, that’s Paul in english)

    Hi Joe, my name is Anabela, I enjoy your books, cd’s and dvd’s. I LOVE the way you make my mind swoosh and travel miles, within SECONDS of reading some of you stuff!! I guess I am now past being a Joe fan, and have morfed into a Joe junky! Only sometimes, (teensy-weensy times), do I feel that you sometimes sound like one long advert. Maybe its a cultural thing, since I’m not American. I’m writing to you from the green hills and fresh waterfalls adjacent to the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Will continue to read you. Thank you for who you are. Anabela

    Hi Joe

    I have been reading your book, ‘Attract Money Now’ and I have a question. Its about the tithing thing. You say that we shouldn’t expect to set an intention and then wait for the money to fly in through the window. We have to act.

    Then, in the section on tithing you talk about making a donation of $15,000 and unexpectedly receiving a check for $35,000.

    The question is, was that the ‘magic’ of tithing, or did you just get paid for value you had already provided.

    I can’t get past the idea that people only give you money because you give them something they want more than the money.

    People don’t just randomly send you checks do they? Or if they do, can you send me their contact details.

    I am sure that like most people, I have had plenty of million dollar ideas. If only I had acted on them!
