I’ve been offering masterminds in my Rolls-Royce Phantom for about a year and a half now. ABC News filmed one of them last January when fitness celebrity model Jennifer Nicole Lee was the rider for the night.
They are idea fests. We brainstorm everything from product ideas to marketing strategies, from copywriting to spirituality, from Internet marketing to the Law of Attraction.
Since I’ve written about fifty books, in the areas of marketing and self-help (from The Attractor Factor to There’s A Customer Born Every Minute to coauthoring the definitive book on masterminds titled Meet and Grow Rich, with Bill Hibbler), our masterminding evening can touch on any or all of these areas – and more. I just let inspiration lead the way.
During these one-of-a-kind events I’ve met some of the nicest people in the world, too, who have flown in from all over the world – from Japan, France, Switzerland, Italy, etc.
I love these events.
Now that I have an even rarer car in the 2008 Spyker c8 Laviolette — the only car of its type in the world — I thought I would offer the Spyker Mastermind experience.
The difference here is the car. I saw it in person two months ago and haven’t been able to forget it. So I attracted it. Spyker is a handmade car from Holland. Only about 30 exist in the USA. It’s a James Bond-ish street jet built on airplane technology, and the one I now have is as rare as a car gets.
The Spyker is not a Rolls-Royce, though it’s just as divine, and just as expensive. Since it’s a two-seater coupe, I can only have one passenger, and you need to be OK with a tight space for at least the ride to and from dinner.
Here’s some promotional info on this unique car:
“The Spyker C8 Laviolette is an exotic high-performance Dutch super car named after an early 20th-century Spyker engineer, Belgian race car builder, Joseph Laviolette. This is an all aluminum, hand built, mid-engined sports car, with aerodynamic ground effects, side air ducts, and electrically operated single hinge tilting doors that is definitely a showstopper.
The C8 Laviolette seats two in its luxurious quilted Connolly leather interior and features a unique glass canopy reminiscent of a fighter planes cockpit. Two separate compartments keep the driver and passenger slightly apart, delineated by a chrome bar that bisects the unique chrome gearshift lever. The C8 Laviolette’s 4.2-liter V-8 engine from Audi produces 400-horsepower and 354 foot pounds of torque, goes 187 mph, and can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just under 4.5 seconds with a six-speed manual transmission.
In 1914 Spyker merged with the Dutch Aircraft Factory N.V., and from that moment on their design has been heavily influenced by airplanes and aerodynamics, as seen in the Spyker logo consisting of an aircraft propeller and a wire wheel. Spykers are the ultimate statement of individuality; a creation of timeless beauty in the form of a state of the art technology package with spectacular performance. Every Spyker is as much an individual as its discerning buyer, hence Spyker’s slogan, ‘Crafted For Individuals’. “
If you’re interested in a Mastermind evening with me in my Spyker — or in my roomier Rolls-Royce Phantom – just notify my office and we’ll set a date for your experience.
In fact, I have several cars, and you can choose the vehicle you’d like to experience for your very own mastermind evening.
You might like to ride in the ’76 Jag formerly owned by famous bodybuilder and movie star Steve Reeves, or the ’97 Panoz Roadster formerly owned by rock star Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, or maybe the ’02 Panoz Esperante formerly owned by movie and TV star Patrick Dempsey of Grey’s Anatomy.

Last weekend I went to Dallas to relive my homeless days while a TV crew filmed it all.
I didn’t like going there.
I didn’t like being there.
But I’m glad I went through it.
I was finally able to break through the black cloud I’ve unconsciously carried from three decades ago.
When people ask me how I went from homeless to bestselling author, all I can tell them is I never let go of my dream, and I persistently and relentlessly worked toward making it a reality.
I worked at my dream while I was homeless, in poverty, struggling with no job at all or jobs I hated so bad I cried driving to and from them.
But I never gave up.
I kept going to the library, kept reading self-help and self-improvement books, and kept applying what I read.
It all helped me.
But it wasn’t enough.
I needed something more.
The giant breakthrough came when I got a personal coach.
I wrote about this in my book, The Attractor Factor, and I’ve told the story many times.
While you’ll grow with books and audios — and you should keep reading them as nourishment for your mind and soul — the dramatic leaps to new levels will come more easily and quickly with a coach.
That’s why I started Miracles Coaching more than four years ago.
It’s to help you dissolve your hidden limitations and blast up the ladder of success.
It’s to help you attract miracles.
To help you taste what I’m talking about, you can have a 30 minute free session of Miracles Coaching.
Just go to —
Again, it’s free.
It’s a gift to you, to help you move forward.
And all you have to do is request it.
It’ll help you have a better day, too.
Isn’t it time?
PS — I know you may be nervous about talking to a Miracles Coach or signing up for that free session. The first time I went to see a personal coach, I could hardly breathe. And my car stalled on the way there. I knew this was my inner resistance to leaving my comfort zone. But I also knew I had to do something to change. So I told myself and my car, “I’m going to that session no matter what!” As a direct result, I left the old unhappy and unsuccessful me and became a new man with amazing levels of new success I only dreamed of before. You can have this, too — or something even better. Go see — http://www.miraclescoaching.com

Note: The caricature of me is by Jamie Linfoot of New Zealand. He created it and gave it to me as a gift, after reading my books, including Attract Money Now.
As I wrote about in my book, The Attractor Factor, one of my fundamental beliefs is “There is always a way.”
I don’t care what the problem or challenge happens to be. Either a solution, cure or healing exists, or one can be created. That empowering belief helps me use the Law of Attraction to attract a solution.
I have used that underlying premise for decades now. It’s helped me handle cancer scares, IRS audits, weight loss, pet health issues and more.
For now, let’s talk about pet health issues.
I love animals. I’ve had pets my entire life. At one point I owned eleven cats. Yes, eleven.
Cats age and often get ill, just like humans. Yes, I’m surprised, too.
Recently one of our senior citizens, Chelsea, couldn’t move her back legs. She would hop to food. She couldn’t walk, so she mostly dragged herself. It was sad to see, and scary. We didn’t want to think of losing her, or her suffering.
I took her to the local vet. They took x-rays. They came back with the results: Chelsea’s spine was fusing at the base. She needed surgery, but at her age (fourteen) it wasn’t a good idea.
The vet offered no hope.
I didn’t accept surgery or ‘nothing’ as our options.
I knew, “There is always a way.”
I jumped online. I Googled “cure cat spine problems.” One of the top results was about acupuncture for pets.
Acupuncture for animals?
I’ve done acupuncture. I don’t like needles any more than you do, but I have to admit it worked for me.
Would it work for Chelsea?
Was it possible?
I searched my area and found a local Austin, Texas vet who did chiropractic work and acupuncture on cats and dogs.
I drove Chelsea there. Here she is getting her first acupuncture treatment:
Did this treatment work?
Was it worth the drive, cost and effort?
The very next day Chelsea was walking.
She is not perfectly normal yet, but she moves her back legs, walks with a limp rather than a hop or a drag, and looks happy and healthy.
Again, if you come from the empowering belief that “There is always a way,” you open your mind to seeing new possibilities.
Here’s a video of Chelsea getting her second acupuncture treatment:
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….

I flew to Houston recently to do one thing: test drive a Spyker, a hand made exotic super car from Holland.
It was a departure from my usual way of doing things. I never take a day off to fly to another city just to see a car. But it felt right. It felt like I almost couldn’t stop myself from doing it.
That bothered me.
I wondered why I was so intent on seeing that car. It was a stretch to see it. I had to interrupt my day, my business, my life. But I know the power of stretching to increase personal growth. I also know the power of trusting those hunches. So I stretched.
Now here’s where this gets interesting.
I thought I was going to see the Spyker. After all, that’s why I booked the flight.
But from a higher plane (no pun intended), I actually went there for a completely different reason.
Yes, I went to see the car. That was the sole purpose of the trip. But once I knew I was going anyway, I started to think of what else I could do in Houston.
Recently I had been interviewed for three different CNN radio shows out of Houston. The host liked me and asked to talk about filming a TV show with me. I told him about Operation YES, my movement to end homelessness. He liked it. So we planned to talk again soon.
Well, since I was going to Houston anyway, I asked if he wanted to meet. He did.
As it turns out, I loved driving the Spyker car. It’s fast and furious and oh so unique looking. But it’s also tough to crawl in and out of it, like entering a fighter jet.
I didn’t buy the car.
It appears the real reason I went there was the CNN interview. It was intense brainstorming, high energy, and led to solid action. We made plans to make a realty TV show out of my helping homeless people with the Law of Attraction and my other work.
So why did I go to Houston?
Was it the car or CNN?
Obviously I consciously thought it was for the car.
But unconsciously I was really going there for CNN.
The lesson here is to trust the process.
Even when it may seem like you are off track, you may actually be on the right path.
You might doubt yourself or feel disappointed when you take action for a reason (such as to see a car) and it doesn’t work out.
But if you relax and breathe and remain aware, you will probably find there’s a better reason for the action you took.
Since you can learn from everything and everyone, it’s most likely true that you are always on the right path.
Assume that’s true and see if life takes on more of an exciting charm.
What if what you’re doing right now, no matter what it is or what you prefer, is exactly the right moment for you?
What if there’s something in this moment that is for you to see and act on that you hadn’t previously seen or considered?
Think about it.
For funsies, you can watch me meeting the 2008 Spyker Laviolette in Houston right here:
