I started this blog on November 6, 2005, four years ago today.  I did it because SEO expert Brad Fallon and I spoke on a cruise ship where he said everyone needed a blog.

I was skeptical. I thought blogs were self-indulgent wastes of time. Brad said maybe so, but the search engines liked them. I listened, wrote a few brief blog posts, and caught the bug. I haven’t looked back since. I love writing my blog.


But the look and feel had to change over the years. A few years ago I left Blogger and installed WordPress. That’s been working fine until I heard Erica Douglass speak at Pat O’Bryan’s Unseminar 6. She’s a young, successful online entrepreneur with a popular blog. I listened, took notes, and implemented most of the changes she suggested within 24 hours.

There were still more changes to be made. That’s where Craig Perrine stepped in.


Craig is the coauthor (with me) of Inspired Marketing, and the man behind the Attract Miracles website. He completely redesigned  my blog’s look and feel. I loved it but we could never find the right moment to upload the new blog.

But then a hacker broke into my blog and completely wiped it out.

For at least two days I didn’t have a blog at all.

That’s when Craig told me, “Now’s the time to install your new blog.”

We did. And what you see here is my reincarnated blog.

There are numerous lessons here:

1. When the experts speak, listen. I listened to Brad . I listed to Erica. I listened to Craig.

2. Take action. When Brad told me to write a blog, I did — within a few days. When Erica told me to fix it, I did — within 24 hours. When Craig said the new blog was ready for upload, I said do it — instantly.

These are the very secrets you need to follow to achieve and attract the goals you want.

The thing is, most people won’t do the very things they know are right for them to do.


They fear change.

The known may not be ideal, but it’s comfortable. And we always like to be within our comfort zone.

I’m urging you to get a little uncomfortable and try something new.

Think about something you’ve been meaning to change — whether a blog or a life pattern — and take action to change it right now.

That’s how you reincarnate your life into something you prefer.

It can begin right now.

    Thanks Joe – sorry to hear about the hacker thing, but things are better than ever. Love the blog. This is my first visit (although I’ve read your other work for years now). This particular message was what I needed today. I’m exiting the comfort zone. It’s scary, but boy do I want the change. I’m taking a great big gulp and seeing what happens. What a beautiful life!

    Hello joe,

    This example is best for me. Yes, i am still afraid of to bring change in my life. I mean, to my friend. You said, we all are supposed to live within our comfort zone. I agree with it and then you said, we need to accept some uncomfortable changes. There are so many uncomfortable changes for my friends, i feel if i try them, i will have no problem with them.

    My friends are not being honest with me. They are all time lying and thinking how to get advantage from others. Signals also came many times to leave them. I have been hurt when they do negative thinking or makes just show to me.

    But today, i will go for uncomfortable changes for my life. I will see what happens after that. I will take actions. I will leave them as they are. I will go ahead.

    Can people be comfortable with change? As in the comfort zone is in the constant change and growth? This would be delicious.

    um, I filled out your form as instructed (“If you want to get in on this, you need to sign up below and I’ll email you the secret link to get your own FREE copy of Attract Money Now.”) then confirmed my email, and see nothing of this book anywhere.

    Here is your chance to provide the book as I am interested, else I will report you to the authorities and let them deal with you as a scam artist (and not a true follower of the Secret).

    oops nevermind. you need to tell people that another link will follow in the email. I am glad you are not a con artist 😉

    You have a wonderful way of sharing real life experiences with others that make it much easier to believe it is possible to change and believe the universe is conspiring in your favor! This post seemed the perfect time to tell you how much you have meant to me over the last 2 years since I first saw “The Secret”. I wrote an article about this that was just published on the creativity-portal http://www.creativity-portal.com/bc/stories/lisa-crone.html and I, too, hope that I can inspire others as you do so beautifully! Thanks so much!! -Lisa C.

    Hi Dr. Joe! I love the new look of your blog.

    You have inspired our family so much. We just bought your program “The Secret to Attracting Money” and it is really so helpful in turning our money magnets on. We’ve been doing the exercises you suggested and they really work! Yesterday we attracted $40 bucks on the streets of NY (http://jmjfamily6.blogspot.com/2009/11/i-found-20-on-street.html) and now, we’re looking forward to attracting bigger amounts in the days to come!

    Thank you so much. One of my dreams is to meet you in person. I really love you, Dr. Joe! Keep blessing more people!
