You're being lied to

Joe Vitale recently sent the following email to his list.

The subject line is: You're being lied to.

He writes in the email that he's "really sick of the 'experts' who are trying to explain the Law of Attraction to you."

Is Joe now a critic? One of those evil critics who would be better off doing something more productive than criticising other people? Because that's what he calls people who are critical... and it seems that not only is Joe Vitale being critical of other people who teach the Law of Attraction, but he's also accusing them of being liars.

Which teacher of the Law of Attraction would be a liar, Joe? Would that be Rhonda Byrne in her new book? Or your friend James Ray? Tell us, Joe, who is the big "expert" liar here... and no cheating by confessing your own lies... we're all well aware of those.

The email is specifically designed to suck people into a trial run of his Miracles Coaching program... you know the one... the one that is described in this blog post here: Joe Vitale's Miracles Coaching Review. There are links in one of the comments after the review that describe the program's scammy sales pitchfest that I suggest you read too.

Edited to add: here's a post from someone that was probably sucked in by this very email. Help me to not help Joe Vitale help me.

Being who I am... you know the keeper of the pyre... I receive emails. Sometimes its from people who just need to vent some about their experiences but don't want the shame of their experience being publicized. I understand... I've been there. I listen, I write back, and I keep their confidence. It's not my job to tell their stories.

But I can tell you that there are other stories out there. Apparently Joe knows the stories too... the stories about how Joe Vitale's Miracles Coaching program is just another front for Prosper Inc., a company that has some shady dealings behind the scenes. He knows the stories about how how Joe Vitale's Miracles Coaching program is really just a book-study program for which they charge people thousands of dollars.

The Rolls Royce Masterminds get the press from ABC News (press that fireboy thinks is unfair - oh, cry me a river... is it fair to take someone's last few thousand dollars for a promise undelivered?), but I'd hope that you take a deeper look at the Joe Vitale's Miracles Coaching program. This sucks in far more people and delivers far, far less.

In the email Joe sends out, he says that he credits coaching with helping him recover from homelessness. Funny, last time I heard him speak, he credited a pencil and free books from the library.

Here's the body of the email below.... and coming soon, a preview of Joe Vitale's new program, The Abundance Paradigm. Here's a hint: No matter what way you slice it, it's still the same loaf of nutrient-deficient white bread.

I'm really sick of all the "experts" who are
trying to explain the Law of Attraction to you.

Maybe they actually believe what they are saying.

I don't know but I can't stand to see you mislead.

For that reason, I want you to take me up on my
offer to get a taste of Miracles Coaching, to see
if it is right for you.

No cost.

No obligation.

I know you may be nervous about talking to
someone about Miracles Coaching.

I know because I've been there.

The first time I went to see a coach, I could
hardly breathe.

And my car stalled on the way there.

I knew this was my inner resistance to leaving
my comfort zone. But I also knew I had to do
something to change.

So I told myself (and my car), "I'm going to
that session no matter what!"

As a direct result, I left the old unhappy
and unsuccessful me and became a new man
with levels of new success I only dreamed of

You can have this, too -- or something even

Go see --

How bad was it for me before I got a coach?

A few months ago I went to Dallas to relive my
homeless days while a TV crew filmed it all.

It sucked.

I didn't like going there.

I didn't like being there.

I didn't like reliving the misery.

But I'm glad I went through it.

I was finally able to break through the black
cloud I've unconsciously carried from three
decades ago.

When people ask me how I went from
homeless to bestselling author, all I can
tell them is I never let go of my dream
and I persistently and relentlessly worked
toward making it a reality.

And I worked at my dream while I was homeless,
in poverty, struggling with no job at all or jobs
I hated so bad I cried driving to and from them.

I never gave up.

I kept going to the library, kept reading
self-help and self-improvement books,
and kept applying what I read.

It all helped me.

But it wasn't enough.

I needed something more.

The giant breakthrough came when I got
a personal coach.

I wrote about this in my book, "The Attractor
Factor," and I've told the story many times.

While you'll grow with books and audios --
and you should keep reading them as
nourishment for your mind and soul --
the dramatic leaps to new levels will come
more easily and quickly with a coach.

That's why I started Miracles Coaching
more than four years ago.

It's to help you dissolve your hidden limitations
and leap frog up the ladder of success.

It's to help you to understand the Law of
Attraction, so you can actually get the results
you prefer.

It's to help you attract miracles.

To help you taste what I'm talking about,
just go to --

Again, it's freeee.

It's a gift to you, to help you move forward.

And all you have to do is request it.

It'll help you have a better day, too.

In fact, your first miracle could be that call.

Isn't it time?



PS - You can listen to an interview with
one of my Miracles Coaches, and watch a
short video about Miracles Coaching, at
the site. Again, it's at --

Coming Soon: My new audio program will be out
late October: "The Abundance Paradigm: Moving
from the Law of Attraction to the Law of
Creation." You'll love it. :)


  1. Oh, goody, BBF. I'm glad you hit on Miracles Coaching again. Good job. And it's interesting that a critical piece would appear on the Powerful Intentions forum. I guess those people are growing too. :-)

    To tell the truth, I haven't read all of The Attractor Factor so I don't know which Miracles Coach Joe would be referring to in his email (and in The Attractor Factor) as being the one who ushered in his giant breakthrough. Does he mean sweet Mandy Evans, or is he talking about the nefarious "Jonathan" the sex predator? He has described both of these individuals as being his Miracles Coach at one time or another in his life. (As you no doubt know, he pretended to tell the whole shocking truth about "Jonathan" in The Attractor Factor. But apparently he left a few things out.)

    Joe writes in his recent email that as a direct result of seeing his first Miracles Coach, he became "a new man with levels of new success I only dreamed of before." But according to him, he was still living in near-poverty and struggling mightily for about fifteen years after his "homeless" stint, and in that time frame he met both Mandy and "Jonathan," so apparently the transformation was not immediate, but... oh, my brain is hurting again. I try so hard to keep his stories straight. But I simply cannot.

    But I guess that's okay. Joe can't keep his stories straight either.

  2. why so much hating on Joe Vitale?

    Sure he's a huckster, but there are millions of hucksters out there. Why pick on him?

    Why not tell us about what you do believe in, what powerfully moves you, and what you think would powerfully move us than waste time slandering a guy who found a game he likes that works for him?

  3. Thanks again for the link. I am so glad my article is helping people and making a difference. And to think, I thought I was just ranting!

  4. What happened to your blog? I keep checking back, but never anything new. Colour me disappointed...
