The Million Dollar Experiment is up to about $20,000 now, with 310 public participants, 89 of which are already in the money. 25 people report receiving more than $100 so far. Obviously all of this info is reported via the honor system, so feel free to interpret it however you see fit.
One of the most common pieces of feedback I’ve been receiving about this experiment is that it helps people expand their thinking about money. It increases the chance of noticing financial opportunities, and it also brings existing financial blocks into conscious awareness where they can be dealt with. Many people have said that focusing on the intention helped spur them to take some simple actions. For example, several people reported starting their own blogs, and some are already generating income from them. These people are planting seeds for their financial future. Some of those seeds may be eaten by birds, but every once in a while there will be a seed that grows into a huge money tree. If you never plant the seed, you never get the tree.
In order to help support those who’ve joined this experiment (and anyone else who wants to achieve greater financial abundance), I’ve been looking to find some self-made millionaires who credit some or all of their success to the process of forming and holding a clear intention. My goal is to interview them and to share their stories here for the benefit of all. I’m happy to report that the first person I contacted about this said yes. He’s a self-made multimillionaire who started broke. I’m sure some of you have heard of him, but I won’t mention who he is until the interview is ready to be posted. He and I spoke on the phone for about 30 minutes, and he explained to me how this process expanded his thinking about money and allowed him to push beyond self-imposed limitations. I thought about doing an audio interview, but I figured it would be best to do the interview via email, so his responses can be posted here as text. He checked out our Million Dollar Experiment and thought it was a great idea. He told me he actually did something similar a few years ago to make an extra million dollars on the side (attempting to manifest money from all new sources rather than from current income streams), and he reached his goal in 17 months. Not bad, eh?
I’d say we’re on the right track so far.
If a million dollars represents a huge sum of money to you, you may not even be able to imagine how this much money will come to you. Imagine it coming to you anyway. Continue to hold the intention, and allow it to become possible for you. Even while the path from point A to point B remains unclear, keep focusing your intention on point B, and allow the path to unfold in its own perfect time.
Once again, here’s our intention…
In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all, I intend $1,000,000 to come into my life and into the lives of everyone who holds this intention.
