Belting Out Bags: LOA Works

Last weekend my chiropractor, Dr. Rick Barrett, saw me carrying a soft leather bag, something of a stylish saddle bag, and said he wanted one just like it.

The thing is, I bought the bag over a year ago for $150 and didn't think I could get another one.

The man who sold me the bag specialized in selling belt buckles and belts. His bags were a one time offer.

But I mentally told myself I would see if I could attract one for Dr. Barrett.

I would think about the bag every day, at least for a moment or two. I would tell myself that I want to find the man I bought it from and ask him about the bag. But I kept letting it go and doing other things.

But then yesterday I received an email, out of the blue, from the very man who sold me the bag.

He was checking to see if I had received a belt and belt buckle he had sent me as a gift.

I thought it was amazing that he wrote me, as I hadn't heard from him in well over six months. But I seized the opportunity to reply and to of course ask about the leather bags.

He instantly wrote back, saying he doesn't sell the bags anymore.

But he looked in storage and found two bags there, of different sizes.

He offered to send them both to me, for free.

He said, "You are such an Attractor Factor guy that I feel like just giving these to you."

I was stunned.

But I also knew this is how the Law of Attraction works if you are clear: you state what you would like to have, but without any attachment to the outcome. You just playfully put it out there. When the universe puts the opportunity in your face, you take action. That's it.

And notice the win-win-win here:

Not only will Dr. Barrett get to choose the bag he wants from two different size bags, but I'll get the other bag to use as I please.

And the man who gave me the two bags?

I'm sending him a box of gifts -- such as The Missing Secret DVD set, my Humbug DVD, and my new book Buying Trances: A New Psychology of Sales and Marketing, and a few other surprise goodies.

And he's also getting some publicity, as I'm giving you his name and website: Rob McNaughton of

Ao Akua,


PS -- Last night the famous action-packed movie Die Hard 2, starring Bruce Willis, was on television. The lead character, who barely survived terrorists in the first movie, is again barely surviving bad guys in the second movie. At one point Bruce Willis says, "Why do these things keep happening to me?" I said out loud to the screen, "It's the Attractor Factor, bro." Until he gets clear, he'll keep attracting the same stuff, and never realize he's the magnet. Not being clear makes for a great movie but a lousy life.

Please read my entire post here as I have a burning desire within me and will not rest until my dreams are fulfillled and everyones dreams around me.

I recently started a discussion group on 'The Secret' and The Law of Attraction. However this isnt your typical discussion group. I have a tremendous vision for this community, which has grown to 150 people in 3 weeks. The uniqueness of the community is that I typically spend 30 minutes presenting via teleconference and the last 30 minutes is collaborative and interactive, where we facilitate conversations between the community participants. It started out as a six week course that I decided to host as a passion of mine and has grown vey quickly.
I've read your books, have seen The Missing Secret, and am a student of QuantumPhysics and the Law of Attraction. I own several companies, one of them being a virtual learning forum for entrepreneurs and professionals to come together to connect, collaborate, and innovate their lives. We started out focused on a niche market in financial services and since my recent launch of our course on The Law of Attraction, we have decided to branch out into different industries. Our structure is exactly what people need to implement any tool or system into their lives. People feel a tremendous sense of belonging and hope as part of our community. I am certain that we can take ideas, concepts, teachings, and systems and help people accelerate their progress through a structure like this. We are currently doing this with the financial services industry. What I would like to ask of you is an opportunity to help spread your message with you. I'm young, ambitious and have a tremendous track record of success in the corporate world before I left several years ago to becme an entrepreneur. I have a tremendous stage presence and an abiltiy to attract people through my passion and conviction. If you woud like a dynamic presenter and an absolute student of the Law of Attraction and success, then I would like to help you in any way possible. I know that opportunites are coming your way left and right, but I am steadfast on my journey to be a star in your field and I have begun the journey. I could get about 3-400 people on a teleconference to help promote your book zero limits, but more importantly I have a bigger vision for where I am headed and would like to offer up my help to spread your message. My last teleconference was on removing limiting beliefs and I talked about your story with Dr. Len. The conference call was only 60 minutes. We went 15 minutes over and our technology people said not one line dropped off the call, thats how captivated they were. I can send you a recording if you would like. You can go to my website at to check out my company and my background. We are also penetrating the Asian markets, particularly in India. Many of them have never seen the secret but are completely intrigued with my course. Joe, you talk about defining moments and mentioned the one you had on the Missing Secret. My Defining moment would be if you accepted my offer to spread the message, in the true spirit of inquiry.

Hey Joe!

I really liked the $100 Bill Buckle and asked my wife to get me one! Suzanne and I went on a River Boat Party Cruise this weekend for a birthday party. The cliff on one side of the bank was lined with the most amazing mansions.

For a glimpse at our night-ride down the river, check out the picture of the river boat all lit up at
