I’ve been in Los Angeles filming my own TV show.
But the story behind the TV show is far more amazing than the title or the fact that I have one.
You see, ten days before the filming, there wasn’t a show at all.
This miracle manifested in just over one week.
I’m glad you asked.
People have wanted me to have my own television show for over ten years.
Right after the movie The Secret hit the online world, and mega shows like Larry King Live had me on as a guest twice, and Oprah aired several shows of her own on the subject, Hollywood corporate types called me in.
They wanted to discuss a major TV show. At one point I sat in an office with several women who run the major network prime time shows, and Lisa Nichols and I were considered for our own show.
We’d be dual hosts and play off each other.
We’d take turns coaching people.
Both Lisa and I loved the idea.
But as time went on, they didn’t pursue the show.
At least not with me.
I’m told that happens every hour in Hollywood.
At another point during this frenzy for The Secret, a Cuban businessman wanted me to have a television show for the Latino market.
He didn’t seem to care that I spoke little Spanish.
He was going to pair me with a popular Spanish movie star, and we would co-host a TV show.
That petered out, too.
But it wasn’t more than a year or so later that yet another group of people came to me, wanting me to have my own show.
These were actors and actresses and behind-the-scenes workers in the movie industry.
They were all fans of me and my work.
They came to my home; I went to theirs.
We had many exciting meetings discussing my own show.
But after a few months of travel and talk, I got tired of it and pulled the plug.
It just didn’t feel like the right time to do this.
The kicker was when I was robbed in LA.
I took that as a sign to stop.
At yet another point in this adventure, I “had lunch with God” and was going to create an entire television network.
Not just a single show, but a network that would air numerous positive shows.
It was going to be called The Abundance Network.
I met several times with an investor, friends in the media, and more.
We were excited and passionate.
We planned big things.
But that didn’t materialize, either.
Years went by.
Then, in mid February, a man I met 17 years ago — 17 years ago!!!! — contacted me.
He told me he was producing TV content for Amazon, and that Amazon was buying tons of film and shows for their Prime Members.
He also said he wanted to shoot some episodes of me.
I had no idea what he meant or where he was going or what he expected, but I’ve learned to remain open-minded and to nod and say YES to most of life’s opportunities.
Even though I was beyond busy with promotional plans for my new book, The Awakened Millionaire, and my new online course, The Awakened Millionaire Academy, I said I would find a way to fly to LA for a single day of shooting.
I did exactly that, too.
The original plan was for me to film about 18 five-minute episodes.
It would simply be me talking to the camera about subjects I always talk about, from the Law of Attraction to The Missing Secret and more.
It sounded quick and easy.
But the day before I was to leave Texas and head to LA — the day before!!! — I got an email from the producer saying they now wanted to film an entire television talk show with me.
He added they wanted to film a dozen full-length shows.
In one day.
They said they were going to have a set, two chairs, and a number of guests take turns sitting in the hot seat. That I was to talk to each, coach each, and help them through a breakthrough — live and on camera.
I’ve done this before, of course, when I filmed the episodes for The Secret Mirror and The Secret Reflection, both online products of mine.
But I’m being told about this change the day before my flight leaves!
But this story doesn’t stop there.
On the morning of my flight (!), as I’m packing my luggage, the producer asked me to tweet a notice to my followers that if they could get to LA, they could get on the set and be part of my studio audience.
That was before I even got to the airport!!
Are you beginning to see how miracles take place?
You prepare for them and intend them, but then you let go for the Universe to take over the details.
And when the Universe sends you your cue to act, you must act, even if it’s the day before or day of your flights and you are already busy doing other things.
This is how my own TV show came into being — within only ten days.
After ten years of incubating, it only took ten days to manifest. 🙂
And yes, we filmed 14 episodes – in one day.
I’m not sure when it will air or what is next, but I remain open, willing, and grateful.
PS – On the day after my marathon television shooting, I requested an Uber car to take me to the beach. It was time to relax. The driver was an upbeat but struggling reggae musician. He said he was grateful for his life, his family and all he was doing. He smiled big and his heart was open, but I could sense his impatience with his music career. So I told him I was once homeless, had been in poverty for more than ten years, and was now in Los Angeles filming my own TV show. His head reared back and he bellowed a “WOW!” of excitement. I added, “Stay the course, my friend. In time, dreams do come true.”
