My father just sent me this High School graduation picture of myself. This was Joe Vitale in 1972 in Ohio:

And here is Joe Vitale aka Mr Fire last week in Bermuda with Jack Canfield:

And here’s another recent photo of Joe Vitale:

What the – ?

That kid in 1972 had no idea of the roller-coaster he was about to step on as he left High School: homelessness and poverty, confusion and desperation, anger and hurt, yet on to the nickname “Mr Fire!” and world-wide success, happiness, wealth, and fame, with thirty books (such as The Attractor Factor),  eleven movies (such as The Secret), and his own Miracles Coaching program helping thousands worldwide.

You explain it.

When people ask me how I went from nothing to something, they are looking for the magic pill answer. They want me to name the one book, or one event, or one person, or one action, that changed it all forever.

Well, I did do one thing.

And it may surprise you.

The one thing I did to transform my life was this: everything.

I read all the books, attended all the events, struggled and squirmed, panted and prayed, worked on myself, took odd jobs (some I hated) and more — all as I pursued my passion: to write bestselling books that inspire people.

Today I do that for a living. My next book will be available any day now. It reveals my original seven step formula to help anyone attract money now.

It’s called Attract Money Now.

And I’m giving it away, free.

And then go look at your High School picture.

Ao Akua,

Dr. Joe Vitale

PS – Where did Joe Vitale get the name “Mr Fire!”, anyway? Back in the early 1990s I met a woman who began calling me that whenever we met. When I asked her why, she said, “You set a fire under the butt of everyone you meet. You’re always inspiring people. You’re Mistah Fire!” The name stuck, though the woman moved on. And onwards we go.

    I can honestly say that the sincerely smiling eyes didn’t changed at all.

    You learn everything. It’s so true.

    People always think that when they find one book that they believe can instantly change their lives, but it actually doesn’t, they’ll complain and tell everyone that the book is just a junk

    That’s such a good answer: “do everything”. That’s exactly what I’ve been thinking (and) for the longest – at least it inevitably builds up to *something*.

    I love the pic; thanks for sharing…it makes me think that you should right a book geared toward younger children (I have three 7 and under) telling them in simple terms about “cleaning” and attracting money (and whatever else they want in their lives). Hearing it from such an amazing source as yourself would be wonderful. You could touch an entire generation so that they don’t have to “relearn” it all as adults. Just a thought…thanks for all you do!

    Love the analogy of how you got your name “Mr fire”. I’m looking forward to reading up more about you and how you attract success – exciting! regards Fleur Brown

    Excellent article Joe. I truly appreciate all that you’ve brought to the world, I own a number of your audio programs as well as books like The Attractor Factor, Meet and Grow Rich and Zero Limits. We’ve used many of your cleaning techniques for our adopted daughters and they’ve made breakthroughs they never thought possible in their lives. I agree with Beth that possibly working on some sort of book for children regarding cleaning and laws of attraction techniques may be something to consider in the future, as I think people need to start developing these skills at an early age to lead prosperous, happy and fulfilled lives.

    The transformation is inspiring as your books. Thanks for giving your next book for free.

    Dear Joe,
    I am writing you from my room in Abruzzo, Italy. I am just reading the Attractor Factor I bought just 2 days ago. I liked when you helped the Italian restaurant guy with your marketing ideas. In these two days I started to realize that behind some of my ideas there is some “but…” and behind that “but” I find subconscious excuses and powerless beliefs.
    I have a blog on which I write all my thoughts about how people can find serenity. I have only a subscriber yet… myself… This is not a complain :mrgreen: My blog is still very young.
    Four years ago something “exploded” in my life scenery and that event pushed me to find spiritual help outside but I new the only help for myself is INSIDE myself and not somewhere else. After that I started to write, read books (my fist book was Jonathan Livingston Seagull: wonderful! , paint (and I still paint and sell it) and going deeply in new knowledge from whom share knowledge like you do.
    What I do Now?
    Plans… but giving my entire attention to the only step I am doing right now. This is the first role in the game called LIFE. Thanks!
