“I love you, Joe.”
I was sitting at the San Diego airport, minding my own business, my nose stuck to my Blackberry, when the gentleman now sitting beside me looked at me and said those words.
He heard me speak at the NSA convention the day before. Lots of people have been saying “I love you” to me who heard my talk.
Of course, they’re supposed to say it silently, and not to me, but saying it at all is a good thing and a good start.
The man turned out to be a creative genius. A fan of my P.T. Barnum book, There’s a Customer Born Every Minute, and a full-time corporate magician with a Disney-like imagination. He even lives in Orlando.
His name is Giovanni Livera. He’s got passion in his eyes and he’s plugged into the electric current of life. He’s writing, producing, creating. He specializes in astonishing people. He is all about creating experiences for people.
He performed some jaw-dropping magic for me. Made a coin disappear and showed me where it reappeared – under my watch. I never saw it coming. Or going. Or reappearing.
I was astonished.
He handed me a copy of his book, Live a Thousand Years. I started reading it on the plane home and was riveted. The thing is a masterpiece.
It’s about a man who stops time, loses all the numbers on his watch, and regains them one by one as he learns life’s lessons. I strongly suggest you get the book from Amazon.
But my thought for today is about passion.
I heard Donny Deutsch say on his TV show, The Big Idea, that the most common trait of all the people he interviews, who are successes despite all odds, is their passion.
They don’t focus on money. They focus on doing what they love. They may use money as a way to measure their success, but that’s not the focus or the end result.
That’s the real secret.
And the real magic.
Giovanni has it.
So do you.
But you may have to let it out.
PS – Giovanni’s website is www.giovanniexperiences.com Take a look. No charge to peak inside. Might find some magic there.
Note to all Texas readers: I’ll be doing a book signing for Zero Limits in Wimberley, Texas on Saturday, July 28. It will be at www.ranchodeluxe.net from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. That’s at Rancho Deluxe, 14010 Ranch Road 12, Wimberley, TX. I rarely do book signings these days, so if you’re in the area, drop by and say hi. Feel free to bring friends. Let’s party.
The miracles coaches who run my Zero Limits coaching program at http://zero-limits-coaching.com forwarded the following email to me (used here with the permission of the author). This helps illustrate the three stages of awakening I describe in my book Zero Limits. Enjoy. – joe
I have completed my 2nd pass through the Zero Limits book and have listened to a fair portion of it more than once in audio form.
I am positively buzzing with excitement. Not only do I believe I really ‘get it’ but, by clearing the channel between me and God by cleaning ME, I have already seen fantastic miraculous events occur in my life. Not the least of which is the fabulous response I relayed to you yesterday for my Champion Success Workshop on the 28th. I have received even more paid registrations since my last message and I have not even sent my email promotion to my list yet.
I was particularly impacted by the description of the 3 phases Joe provides in the Epilogue. As I read it, I was inspired to write this email to you.
I have no idea “why” I have been inspired to write this, but if I have learned anything at all, it is to follow inspiration when I get it. I am 100% certain there is a Divine reason and that is good enough for me. I apologize for its length but I hope you will indulge me while I ‘gush’ in sincere appreciation for you. =0)) I also sincerely hope you would be willing to share it with Joe, along with my sincerest thanks and gratitude for all he has done in bringing all of this growth and enlightenment, as well as all of you wonderful people, into my life. I can honestly and sincerely declare that I will never be the same again. Thank you!
Relative to the Phases Joe describes, I think I did not spend much of my life in Phase 1. As you two know, I (or better stated “Stevie’) moved right along into “action”, working to earn value, love, and attention, and quickly entered what I would describe as Phase 2a. Al-beit driven by “Stevie” and the memories he loves so much, for the vast majority of my life, I considered myself to be “in control”. As in, “I make it happen”, ”I drive results and create my worldly success”. “I am the one” (Remind me to relay a funny image about the phrase “I’m the leader” and a Disney film next time we talk. You’ll laugh)
While earning millions of dollars and experiencing what most would consider a wildly successful career in VC backed hi-tech startups, living for 30+ years in Phase 2a, wealthy and miserable, ultimately lead me to total burnout and on to seek something better. Something that ‘made it all make sense’. I thought leaving the corporate world for a home based business was the answer. Much to my surprise, after making the full transition and ‘earning my way’ to the top of the program, I found to my dismay that Stevie was still running things and I had not improved my situation one iota. In fact, in one way I had made matters worse by letting go of a high 6 figure income and several 7 figure stock option deals. In relative desperation, I began seeking elsewhere for the answer. I overheard someone mention The Secret and by following a series of inspirations that followed, I devoured that movie, the What The Bleep movies, The Attractor Factor and a 1/2 a dozen or more other similar books and audio programs. I was still totally lost. Then through the miracle of ‘Joe’s email invitation’ to the Miracles Coaching Program, I entered Phase 2b, which roughly aligns with what Joes describes as Phase 2 in Zero Limits.
In Phase 2b, I have become intimate, to varying degrees of success (LOL), with intentions, clearing counter intention, recognizing and following inspiration, again with varying degrees for proficiency; painfully so when I was not so ‘present’ (LOL). It is important for me to say that were it not for you two and the Miracles Program, I do not believe I would have successfully navigated to Phase 2b successfully. Certainly not in the time I believe I reached a meaningful level of recognition and acceptance of Responsibility. Clearly there is still lots of opportunity for continued growth and as you know I am ravenous for more of that (of course being cognizant and cautious to love Stevie enough to keep him quiet)
After experiencing Zero Limits, I now feel as if I am screaming at Mach10 right through Phase 2b into Phase 3 with my total and complete recognition, identification and acceptance of the fact that there are Zero Limits and the Ho Oponopono method of healing. I know I have been communicating my excitement about this over the last few days, but today, during my quiet time completing Zero Limits for the second time, I felt totally, unbelievably, and irreversibly, transformed.
I accept the high probability that I will continue to struggle from time to time, but as much as I said the very same thing just 3 weeks ago, it is even more true today, that I have never felt more connected to the Divine. LIFE IS GREAT!
I find myself continually and “incessantly” cleaning. In virtually every challenging experience I ask myself, “what is it in me that has caused me to experience this thing this way…whatever it is God, I love you, I am sorry for holding the memory that created this experience for me, please forgive me, and thank you for healing me. And every single time, something miraculous happens. Perhaps not as I expected it, perhaps not as I ‘said’ I wanted or ‘intended’ it, BUT, if not how I asked for it, something better. Every time.
And, I have also found that when I have a good experience, it is automatic for me to immediately express sincere gratitude, “oh thank you for bringing this experience to me”. And then, something else GREAT happens. WOW!
I am so appreciative to every person, every thing, every circumstance and every event that has been divinely manifested to bring this experience into my life this way, I am literally (and somewhat embarrassingly) tearful with joy. I feel so joyful, it like my heart is to big for my chest. I suppose this is what God means when he says “that your joy may be full”
Anyway, I just had to communicate this to you. Life is truly miraculous when we can get ourselves – our egos and our memories – out of the way.
THANK YOU, I LOVE YOU ALL.

I’m sleepy here in San Diego but I’ve noticed a trend with the critics of my latest book, Zero Limits.
They seem to object that there is only one cleaning method revealed in the book, and that to learn more you have to attend a seminar.
I want to say that the most powerful cleaning method I know of is the one in the book.
You don’t need another one.
The one in the book is what Dr. Hew Len used to help heal that entire ward of mentally ill criminals.
He’s been using it for 25 years now.
The one in the book is what I use all the time, every day, even right now, as I type this.
Again, you don’t need anything more. The book was written as an entertaining story to convey the one method in self i-dentity ho’oponopono that I believe is the single most important one to use.
And again, if you want more, attend a seminar. Dr. Hew Len and I will do a Zero Limits one in Maui in December. He offers them on ho’oponopono all the time.
But all you really need is what’s in the book.
PS – Most people “get” the book and call it an awakening device all by itself. This post wasn’t for them. 🙂
If you prefer audio listening over reading, you’ll be glad to know Zero Limits the book is now on audio and available for download.
The audios were recorded by me and by Dr. Hew Len, my coauthor, with contributions from others, too. It is the entire book on audio. It makes for a beautiful listening experience. I’m very excited to have the blend of Dr. Hew Len’s charismatic voice with my own on this recording.

Personally, I think www.audible.com is easier to search, but do whichever works for you.
Also, if you missed the action packed teleseminar the other night with Noah St. John interviewing me about Zero Limits, it’s now available online at www.NoahandJoe.com I think it was one of my best calls ever.
As a reminder, the Zero Limits Group Coaching Program starts soon. Details are at http://zero-limits-coaching.com
The book Zero Limits is an official bestseller at Amazon. If you haven’t gotten it yet, see www.amazon.com or www.bn.com or ask for it at your favorite book store. There are also details at http://www.zerolimits.info
I guess that’s enough “Zero” talk for today.

Thank you. I love you.
The response to my “Kirk Loves You” post from the other day (http://blog.mrfire.com/health/kirk-loves-you/) has been great.
We raised just under $3,000 for the $15,000 Quadriciser machine that Kirk needs to begin to retrain his body and mind so he can have some movement.
And that $3,000 came despite problems with the Paypal buttons on his site at www.amazingkirk.com (They’ve since been fixed.)
But I decided it’s too important for Kirk to wait for the machine, so I wrote a check today for the full $15,000.
I’m not saying this to brag, but to offer a lesson or two for you:
I learned a long time ago that the more successful I am, the more I can help others, like my family, friends, good causes, or even people I don’t know, like little Kirk.
Too many people fear success. I was there once, too. But when I realized that the more I create wealth in my life, the more I can help myself and others, that fear dissolved.
I also learned another secret long ago:
I wrote about this in my book, The Greatest Money-Making Secret In History. The basic message is this: give whatever you want to get.
If you want money, give money.
If you want love, give love.
It seems to be a karmic secret or law: give to receive.
Unless you block the receiving, it works every time.
In fact, shortly after I decided to write the check for $15,000, I received twice that in unexpected income.
That’s how this law works.
My gift to Kirk is also my gift to me.
When you get these lessons, prosperity and much more will come your way at an accelerated pace.
In fact, I was just in the hot tub, doing my daily meditative gratitude session. As I thought of Kirk finally getting this machine — one his mother has wanted for him for years — I began to cry.
I realized that life is truly beautiful.
But what makes it beautiful is you and me, and what we do.
I really do look forward to shaking Kirk’s hand one day.
PS – Thank you for contributing to help Kirk. All contributions will go to the fund to help him with whatever he needs. You can still contribute at www.amazingkirk.com
