A New Way to Program Your Mind to Attract Money, or, Why I Was Upset about a Check I Received for $125,689.58

I just received a check in the mail for $125,689.58.

I didn't know what it was for.

It looked real.

I wanted it to be real.

But was it?

A letter with the check began, "The enclosed check is a real check. But you can't cash it or deposit it. It's non-negotiable."

Huh?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was instantly aggravated.

Why send me a check I can't use?

Why make it look real?

Why get me excited and then dash my hopes against the rocks?

I was all set to go buy my BMW Z4 M when I realized this check, which I thought was unexpected income, was a lie.

What a dirty trick.

I went back to the letter that came with the check. I read it. Turns out the woman who sent it created a service to do what she did to me: send real-looking fake checks to people, made out for colossal amounts.

Now why would anyone want to do that?

I looked at her site and figured it out.

You send yourself an authentic looking check, made out for a huge amount, to get yourself imagining what it would feel like to actually have a real one for that amount.

It's a new way to program your mind to attract money.

I started to get it.

This is a cool way to bring to life the fourth step in my book,The Attractor Factor.

And I liked the idea so much I went to the site www.getbigcheck.com/joevitale.html and ordered a tycoon sized check for myself and a surprise big check for Nerissa.

I'm going to put mine on the wall and look at it every day.

And one day soon, I'll receive a real, cashable version of the check.

After all, it all begins in your mind.

This is a way to embed your desire in your brain's control center.

Obviously, this service could be a terrific direct mail attention-getter, as well.

Imagine sending a prospect a large, real looking check, with their name on it, and then beginning your letter to them with something like, "Note the million dollar check attached to this letter. I'm writing with a million dollar idea for you..."

Get yourself a check.

Expect wealth.

Ao Akua,

PS -- I still wonder if people who receive these checks unexpectedly will be excited or miffed. It's a little like telling them they won the lotto and then saying, "Ha! Got YOU!" I'll be curious to see how well received the checks are. But from a mental programming standpoint, I think getting a check for yourself and people you care about is a wise idea. Do it.

Hi Joe,

Well, I can certainly see the effects it would have on people to get a "check" like that in the mail.

I hope you received mine. It wasn't for no $125,689.58. Just a bit smaller: $50. But at least mine is real. :D

I remember getting those in the mail years ago. Seems like direct marketers have been using them for years. What a great idea!

I've also read your book, "The Attractor Factor", three times and used your formula and have a publisher for my book! Yay!

It works!
