For the first time ever, one of the rarely discussed formulas for building wealth and achieving success in all areas is revealed in The Attractor Factor. Popular marketing and spirituality guru Joe Vitale argues that those who try hard and fail need to remake their inner beings in order to easily attract success, wealth, and happiness. Many people do the right things but get the wrong results; it's not so much what they do, as what they are inside. The problem for most people is self-sabotage. In five easy steps, Vitale shows anyone how to become happier and more successful by doing a few simple things differently every day. Part wealth-creation guide, part spiritual road map, part autobiography, The Attractor Factor offers inspiring, effective answers for anyone who wants to feel better, be happier, get wealthier, and get ahead in life.

So many books, so little time...
Read/listen to the last half of the book first, then read/listen to the first half.
I did enjoy this book, but my expectations for the over all content of this book was not met, hence the 3 star rating. I got this book because I had seen Joe Vitale on The Secret. First I would say that over all I found the book well written and interesting. Perhaps I was looking for something more enlightening to come from him, but this was not really in the early part of the book. The early part of the book covers his time where he positively intentioned his OWN email seminars, and how he was able to convince many people to enroll in his training seminars on line for $1,500 so that he could get the BMW of his dreams. That seemed to be manipulative to me, as he covers how he got his BMW and not how his course that he was giving changed the lives of the people he charged $1,500. Again I would have been more interested in how the lives of those who attended his seminar were changed. Otherwise he is just how to sell things to people who have self esteem problems and need someone to tell them what to do with their lives.
Then he talked about how he applied the same principles on how to get his country estate. If all I wanted was a fancy car or country estate, then I would have satisfied, but I wanted something more, life changing, which was covered later in the book.
The later part or second half off the book was MUCH BETTER when he discusses the principles on positive spiritual prescriptions on creating positive intentions. He should have skipped all the personal stuff on how he acquired things and rather on how he changed the lives of people who read his work on making positive change in their lives. There again the later part of the book was much better.
I guess I don’t need to know about his divorce and how he is now much in love with a new partner. It doesn’t provide anything to the work, but seems rather being self serving.
Before I purchase this audiobook I regarded some of the negative reviews from previous readers. However now after listening to it myself, I am completely surprise that there are any negative reviews. It seems that some of the things that the author talks about are completely misunderstood. He didn't mean to take advantage of anybody he is simply trying to ilustrate the comcepts taught in the book. On the other hand I really appreciate his frank-talk style and the fact that at the end of this work he addresses some very important questions that religous people like myself may have in regards this book's concepts. This books is very enlightening and gives the law of attraction an essense of reality, the author truly teaches how to apply
the law of attraction in your daily life and takes the mysticism and essense of fantasy out of picture. It converts the concept into a practice of daily life even when things go wrong. The seemingly marketing references don't bother me since I am familiar with some of the authors he refers to. This is a great book I am going to listen to it till it sinks well in my mind.
As the book started I was not all that impressed. Then about a quarter of the way through the author struck a cord. The rest of the book was great. I highly recommend it.
I saw Joe Vitale in The Secret; then I listened to him on The Master of the Secret Series. While there is no question he is a good marketer and also trying to market his own stuff, once you get the end you will know he truly is trying to make the world a better place by helping people. Very sincere guy (even though you wouldn't know it by the first part of the book).
After the first introductory chapter, the book gets interestinly informative. Joe Vitale shares a lot of detail on the process of receiving and attracting "desires, situations,and, people" into our lives. The eyes of my understanding were opened to new techniques and thoughts. I am delighted I attracted this ebook into my life! My life is getting better and better.
I absolutely loved this audio book. For me, it was extremely inspiring and I acutally looked forward to completing it. I like the fact that Joe Vitale speakes of his successes, as it is refreshing to know that the deliverer of the information has experienced all that he preaches. I really feel inspired to have, do and be anything that I want after listening to this audio. Participate in the exercises that he ask you to do. I found out a lot about myself and the beliefs that I carry around with me which blocks the manifestations of my dreams.
I ordered this after listening to The Secret and was so disappointed. I wish Icould give it no stars. It was little more than a personal brag-session and promotion for the books and seminars he publishes. He even ridicules someone because they don't want to pay $100 for one of the seminars he markets (that's how he attracts money btw). I was turned off immediately by his narcissistic and self-serving manner. The book was poorly written and poorly read--in fact, he did some of it in "dialogue" fashion which was excrutiating to endure. Stick with The Secret or someone interested in actually helping you live a better life. This man seems greedy to me.
I truly enjoyed Joe Vitale's Attractor Factor, it is truly one of the most complete self-improvement / law of attraction books out there with lots of experiences and quotes from other gurus aside form many exercises to perform, I think this audiobook is worth a try.
I am very comfortable knowing that I NEVER have to hear about his Z3 again if I don't want to. However, not only is this is a great compliment to The Secret but I forsee myself listening to it at least a 3rd time if not more. If you have listened to either this or the secret and not the other, get the other! This was an autobiography of sorts which gave this Self-Help (actually self creation) book personality enough to be not only be palatable, but also touching. In my opinion if a book can't make me feel something, it's not worth reading again. The way Joe tells the story about the Italian Restaurant owner really touched me. AND Everything in this Audiobook works! Just let go of you have been and do what is outlined in the book. It's worth it!
In the first part of the book you will be given a list of web sites where you can buy self help books and products, if your not willing to make the investment, shame on you (or so the author says). No wonder how he has become rich.
I hate to buy a book and get los of marketing and so little meat.
If you are looking for a serious book that can help you then look elsewhere.
