"You Can Have It All"

In the early 1980s one of the authors who inspired me was Arnold Patent. He came out of nowhere with a book titled You Can Have It All and quickly went on the cover of national magazines and even appeared on Oprah.


Arnold is still around. He’s eighty years old and still writing and speaking. I interviewed him recently for my Hypnotic Gold members. He’s an easy guest, as he’s so loving and relaxed.

One of his tips for growing is what he calls stretching.

The more you reach for goals that you think are beyond you, the more you will stretch yourself into being the kind of person who can reach those goals.

He also noted that you can’t dramatically change without a coach.

He openly said that books and audios won’t do it, even though he (like me) offers both.

He said you need someone to take you beyond yourself. In his opinion, that’s a coach.

Of course, I agree. That’s why I started Miracles Coaching more than four years ago. Books and audios helped me, but coaching transformed me.

When it comes to stretching, just talking to Arnold was making me stretch beyond my limits. Through our interview, he was a temporary personal coach to me.

For example, as you may already know, I had been contemplating buying a Spyker car for well over a year. It’s a hand-made exotic sports car from Holland. It’s rare, stunning, and expensive. Since I already attracted several nice cars, including a Rolls-Royce Phantom and three Panoz sports cars, I wouldn’t let myself even test drive a Spyker.

But then I remembered Arnold and the idea of stretching.

I had to admit I was letting my limiting thoughts stop me from trying out the Spyker. I had to come face to face with my own issues of deservingness, wealth, status, opinion, and much more.

Please note: It’s not about the car. It’s about stretching.

As a result, I flew to Houston to do one thing: test drive that car!

I wrote about that experience in a previous blog post (April 2nd: Are You On the Right Path?). It illustrates how taking action leads to unexpected miracles.


Now it’s your turn.

Please think about what you have been afraid to do.

That fear may be a stretch for you.

But stretching often leads to transformation.

Go read Arnold Patent. I endorse him and his work. As his famous book title declares, you really can have it all.

But in order to experience that abundance, you may have to do something you’ve been afraid to do.

The next move is yours.

I wonder what joy awaits once you take the first step to stretch into what you want….

    This is a great article on the Law of Attraction. Would you mind if I wrote a short article about your blog? Thanks!

    Such inspiring words! Usually I’m not a sceptic but while reading your books I found tons of limiting beliefs inside myself, which have been blocking me all these years without me even noticing this diligent “autopilot”. That’s why it’s so inspiring to hear the same truths from other great people like Arnold Patent, Albert Einstein or Mark Twain. Thank you for this book recommendation,- gosh, there is still so much to learn, it’s almost overwhelming. How did you manage to pay your coach while being homeless? How can a miracle coach help a beginner with no money? Or is this program for the advanced students? Lots of love to you and your cat! Eva

    I has read your book “The Key”. It’s amazing. But I’m interesting, if I want to be with the person (very very much), who is married and has child. I;m married too and have a child. But I love him and I want to be with him in spite of everything. I want to try to lead of your advices. How can it be the miracle if I want to break people’s lifes.
    Sorry for my English.

    thanks for clarifying. What would you tell beginners-homeless and unemployed people- what would be the best start for all the discouraged ones who forgot what it’s like to believe in themselves?

    HI Joe I am a long time fan of yours and just today I was listening to “Beyond Positive Thinking” in car that you recorded. I love your audio products especially because I can use them in the car and make that time on road well spent. I have to constantly deal with limiting beliefs and swat them away. Currently reading Attract Money Now. Thank you for your seemingly limitless sources of inspiration.

    So true! I love your awakening course and am planning to order some more audio programs of yours. Is there a site where I can see ALL the audios and all the books you created/produced? Thanks a lot!

    I just listened to your free audio,- WOW!!!! Thank you so much for your love, it is shining through each word. Every time I listen to your audios I face one of my limiting beliefs, thinking that now you are going to start repeating the things over and over again. But you never do! Your words are always fresh and full of love. Thank you for this!
