Last Thursday ABC News sent journalist Dan Harris to my home to interview me about everything from the movie The Secret to the Law of Attraction to James Ray to the entire self-help movement. Along the way we took a ride in my Rolls-Royce Phantom and talked about masterminding, attracting money now, and more. It was quite “the day.”
This was ABC News’ second visit. They were here in January to film the entire Rolls-Royce Phantom Mastermind with fitness celebrity Jennifer Nicole Lee.
Being filmed in a Rolls-Royce with a gorgeous fitness model at your side is a lot different than being interviewed by a sharp mainstream TV news reporter. TV journalists can be pushy and confrontational, and you never know what they’ll ask, all while a video camera is recording your every word and expression. These interviews are often called “firing lines” for a good reason.
Dan Harris is an exception. Oh, he asked the tough questions and he kept firing questions at me, but I could see he’s a caring man with a sincere curiosity about life and people. And I had of course Googled him before he arrived and knew he is passionate about indy music as well as journalism. I saw that he is an exceptional man with an amazing ability to ask questions under pressure. I liked him. Still do.
Still, most of his questions came from a basic belief that money is bad. “You actually charge $5,000 for your Rolls-Royce Mastermind?” Yes, and I’ll be raising the price in March. “You sleep at night selling self-help books?” Of course. I’m helping people and offering solutions to their woes. “You help people to attract millions of dollars?” Actually, I help them to attract money now. “You’re OK marketing all the time?” I’m not marketing, I’m offering.
And so it went. It occurred to me later that I should have asked if ABC News charged their advertisers, and if they slept well knowing they were selling questionable drugs (with side effects such as possible death), etc. I also wondered if the interviewer got paid for sitting around and asking me questions. And doesn’t ABC News promote/market their upcoming TV shows all day long?
It’s so easy to be a critic.
The interview was from a Stage One perspective, as explained in The Awakening Course. It was all about “Who’s the victim?” and “Who’s to blame?” The other three stages of awakening, and certainly Zero Limits, could never be understood on this first level, where the interview took place.
The ABC News TV show will air in May, if not sooner. It’ll be an hour long special on positive thinking. They’ll have people against it (believe it or not) and they’ll have people for it (like me). They’re also interviewing Rev. Michael Beckwidth and Bob Proctor. On the nay side, they’ll talk with Bright-Sided author Barbara Ehremreich and Sham! author Steve Salerno.
You and I will have to wait to see how ABC edits the show. Meanwhile, I wanted to mention a brief moment Dan Harris and I had after the interview in my office.
Since Dan is deep into music (he’s also a drummer), I told him about my Alien Guitar. He asked to see some of the videos Nerissa and I created where I reveal the alien guitar to the person on camera but not to the camera/viewer. He laughed as he watched one of the clips. I offered to show the alien guitar to him while we filmed the moment but he said it might look like he was promoting it.
I then told him that my master strategy was to get a buzz going and then go on David Letterman to show and play the Alien Guitar. I told him I wanted to wait and get people really talking first.
“I wouldn’t wait,” Dan said. “I’d contact Letterman right now.”
“Sure. His show needs so much content that they’ll latch onto this right away.”
I paused as I considered his advice. Then something dawned on me.
I looked at Dan and said, “You know what you just did with me?”
Dan looked at me and asked, “Encourage you?”
“Yep. That’s what we do in the self-help movement.”
Dan nodded, letting it seep in.
“We listen for the latent desire already in a person and then encourage them to take action to make it real,” I explained. “Just like you did with me.”
I wish that moment had been filmed. It demonstrated what self-help and coaching is really all about.
Again, we won’t know what the entire ABC News show will be like until they edit it and air it in May. (Nerissa filmed the entire interview on her flip cam, so we can match their editing with what was actually recorded.) I think the show will be great. After all, I’m thinking positive.
As for now, I’m grateful to have met Dan Harris and attracted ABC News here. It could mean an appearance on David Letterman, with my alien guitar, will happen soon.

Fitness model Jennifer Nicole Lee was one of the most recent people to attend my private Rolls-Royce Phantom Mastermind.
Why would an already successful woman who’s been featured on Oprah, has a top infomercial selling her Ab-Circle Pro fitness product, is on the cover of hundreds of magazines, is seen on Home Shopping Network on TV, and has a brand new bestselling book out, want to spend time having dinner and conversation with me?
As Jennifer told me as we met for the first time and got inside my Rolls-Royce Phantom, “I could talk over coffee with friends at Denny’s, but what’s that? I want to go to the next level in my life and business. I want to brainstorm with Dr. Joe!”
We had an exhilarating time talking, brainstorming, eating (she ate almost all of her 20 oz Vitale Steak), drinking, laughing and riding around in the lap of luxury.
I loved being with Jennifer. Of course, what’s not to love? She’s fun, smart, sexy, high energy, upbeat, and dedicated to self-improvement.
She came with luggage. Not the emotional kind but the travel kind. What was in her bags? All my books and audios, which she wanted me to sign.
Clearly, this woman knows what it takes to succeed. She already transformed her life by losing 70 pounds and winning bikini contests and getting everyone to notice her, including Oprah.
But she’s not stopping there. She’s reading, growing, doing and more. She came to me for help in reaching the next level in her career, and help is what she got.
What did Jennifer say at the end of our evening together?
“My Rolls Royce Master Mind Experience with Dr. Joe Vitale positively cannot be expressed in words! It was beyond this world! Just in the first 15 minutes I got so many amazing prosperity ideas and concepts that will definitely help me increase my abundance and joy in life. Dr. Joe Vitale is someone who you must master mind with to take your entire life to the next level.”
One of the reasons Jennifer is already so successful is she takes action.
She told me repeatedly that when she reads my books or listens to my audios, and she gets an idea, she jumps. She moves. She makes it so.
It was no different with her attending the Rolls-Royce Phantom Mastermind.
She heard about it, checked it out, and then booked it to make it happen.
I generally only offer one Rolls-Royce Mastermind a month. But these days I’m doing almost one a week.
When you’re ready to jump to the next level, contact my office for dates and more information. Just email my assistant Suzanne at suzanne @ mrfire.com. You may also call my office at 512-278-1610. Or see https://www.mrfire.com/phantom
Are you ready?
PS — ABC News filmed the entire evening with Jennifer and I for a news show that will air on national TV later. That was unusual, as all the other masterminds are private, but it shows that SOMETHING BIG is happening during these Rolls-Royce Phantom Masterminds.
Note: Jennifer Nicole Lee’s website is at www.jennifernicolelee.com Her new book, which I wrote the foreword to, is in book stores now and of course at Amazon. It’s great. Get it.
Years ago I wrote a dissertation for my Doctorate in Metaphysical Science called “Got Spirit”? It was an in-depth study of the most popular metaphysical, new thought and new age movements and the marketing practices their founders used to establish them.
I wrote it because so many people seem to have a negative attitude toward money and marketing that I wanted to see for myself how the biggest and most famous spiritual movements got that way.
I suspected the greatest meta-physicians — from Jesus to Phineas Parker Quimby to Mary Baker Eddy to Ernest Holmes to Mother Teresa — were all comfortable with money and either did marketing or had someone do it for them.
It was an illuminating study. Turns out every one of these spiritual teachers and their movements knew the value of money and marketing. Each did everything from writing, speaking and advertising to publicity events to get attention and attract followers.
If that’s the case, then why do most metaphysical practitioners today — most people, period — dislike marketing and money?
The most obvious answer is they believe, “God will provide.”
That reminds me of the story of the man with a beautiful garden in his backyard. One day a man walked by, saw it, and stopped to admire it.
“You have an amazing garden here,” the stranger said.
“Thank you,” said the owner.
“It’s really God’s garden, isn’t it?”
“Yes, it is,” replied the owner. “But you should have seen it when God had it all by Himself.”
The point is, God (or the Divine or Nature) provides us with the basics, and we have to do something with what we’ve been given. If we just allow things to grow in the backyard, we’ll have a jungle, not a garden. Someone has to tend to the earth. Even if we’ve been given (or learned) the talent to heal, we have to let people know we have it for us to be able to use it. In other words, we have to spread the word.
It’s no different than what Jesus, Phineas Parker Quimby (pictured above), Mary Baker Eddy, or even Mother Teresa did. If someone hadn’t helped them spread the word, we wouldn’t know of them today.
The success of Unity Church is a case in point. Charles and Myrtle Fillmore managed to raise all the money they needed to build and expand their business. It wasn’t until 1942 that the real secret of their financial support was revealed. The Fillmores had created a now famous “Dedication and Covenant” on December 7, 1892, that read:
“We, Charles Fillmore and Myrtle Fillmore, husband and wife, hereby dedicate our selves, our time, our money, all we have and all we expect to have, to the Spirit of Truth, and through it, to the Society of Silent Unity.
“It being understood and agreed that the said Spirit of Truth shall render unto us an equivalent for this dedication, in peace of mind, health of body, wisdom, understanding, love, life and an abundant supply of all things necessary to meet every want without our making any of these things the object of our existence.
“In the presence of the Conscious Mind of Christ Jesus, this 7th day of December, 1892 A.D.”
Please note that while the Fillmores signed an agreement with Spirit, they also wrote, published and distributed materials to market their message and their offerings. In short, they had to do both: Implement marketing and work with Spirit. I call it the phrase I coined: Spiritual Marketing. It could have easily been called Spiritual Money.
The point here is that money and marketing are not separate from Spirit at all. They are in fact Spirit.
When someone says, “I don’t care about money, I just want to follow Spirit,” they are revealing their own limitations about the reality of the world.
Money is Spirit.
Saying you aren’t interested in money, or marketing, is a form of self-delusion. You don’t need to be in love with money to appreciate it and attract it. When you realize it’s a tool of Spirit, you are in a position to create miracles.
Dr. Hew Len, my coauthor for the book Zero Limits, is clear that money is of Spirit. He uses the ho’oponopono practice to clean on everything, including any negativity around money. As a result, our book is a bestseller and I send him huge checks for half of everything that I ever receive from anything related to Zero Limits products. He simply receives.
When you have Spirit, you can have money.
They aren’t separate.

Does the Divine want you to be rich?
According to at least three books, the answer is yes.
There’s Paul Zane Pilzer’s God Wants You to Be Rich.
There’s God Wants You Rich by Scot Anderson.
There’s God Wants You to Be Rich by Bright Winner.
You get the idea.
All three books are very convincing.
Apparently God really wants you to be rich.
I don’t doubt it. I can’t imagine the Divine wanting me to suffer, especially since I already did that for decades.
I’m more inclined to believe a loving Divine would love me enough to want me rich and happy.
I think the better question is, “Do you want to be rich?”
There’s the rub.
In my latest book, Attract Money Now, I point out that the first step in beginning to attract money is to get your head on straight.
That means clear up the negative and limiting beliefs you have about money.
Money is not the root of all evil, for example.
Money is not bad.
You are not bad.
If you think money is bad, or that you’re not deserving, do you really think you’ll allow yourself to have any?
I gave a fiery and “in your face” presentation about all of this at Pat O’Bryan’s Unseminar 6. If you were there, you remember it. If you weren’t, you can watch it on a DVD you can have free.
Just go get a copy of the hardcover printed edition of my new book right here. When you do, you’ll also get the DVD.
If you’re struggling with attracting money, it isn’t the Divine keeping you broke. It’s you.
Do something about it and go read my new book. It’s free here.
Or buy the hardcover (and get the free DVD) here.
PS — You might also consider personal coaching to speed up your results. It’s at Dr. Joe Vitale Miracles Coaching Program.Note: If you buy any of the books mentioned above (other than my own), I don’t make a dime. Just FYI.
When it comes to “the secret” to success — especially in manifesting money or using the law of attraction to attract money — few know what I do is the very thing I teach: I get clear, connect with the Divine, and act on what I receive.
Let me explain…
A few months ago I received a divinely inspired idea, complete with marketing plan. It was so sudden and so complete that I stopped everything and wrote it down. I’ve been acting on every step in it since that day. Some of my own staff think I’m nuts to implement the idea, but virtually everyone else thinks it’s pure genius.
Here’s the idea in a nutshell:
The first leg of the plan was to write another book. I wasn’t keen on that. I’ve already written maybe thirty books, including The Attractor Factor. But I’ve learned not to argue with the Divine. So I’ve written a new law of attraction book, called Attract Money Now. The seven step formula in it was mentioned in my Nightingale-Conant audio program, The Secret to Attracting Money. But it was only mentioned. I suspected it could be turned into a whole book. So I took that tiny section and expanded it, explained it, and made it my new book, called Attract Money Now.
I then decided I would give away the book. Yes, for free. This is where some on my own staff thought I was losing focus. They feared “You won’t make any money.” I knew in my heart this was the way to go. There are numerous stories of authors who gave away the digital version of their book, who saw the hardcover version of the same book skyrocket in sales. Not enough people give away their goods due to fear. Well, I’m not afraid. Plus, Chris Anderson’s new book, FREE, proves giving is a terrific way to make money. Besides, I truly want to help people. By giving away the book, I give people access to the very formula they need to attract money now.
Then, I shot a television show about the book. I’ve been involved in numerous infomercials over the last twenty years. I could have made one for the book. Instead, I wanted to create a TV show where I gave away the ideas in the book, had some testimonials from people who have used my ideas, and then urged the viewer to go read the book, gratis, at my website. Obviously, I am paying for the air time, paying to create the show, and not making a dime from either. Still, I am following the Divine plan.
This is a real secret to success: when the ideas come, act.
Will this plan work?
I’m honoring my heart, my passion, and the Divinely inspired marketing idea. It can’t help but work.
This is how you truly attract success:
You get out of your ego and its petty desires and instead allow the Divine to direct your way.
This is why I say I gave up intentions and now follow inspirations.
Big difference in results.
It will be two weeks before the TV show is edited into something worth airing. When it’s done, I’ll post it online so you can go watch it.

PS – Above photos were snapped on the set of my TV show for my next book, Attract Money Now. You can see Pat O’Bryan at top, Victoria Belue Schaefer in middle, and then Scott York (looking at his iphone). The cover of Austin All Natural magazine with me on it is evidence people want to hear more about how to use the law of attraction to manifest money or attract wealth. Is this exciting or what?
