Create a Miracle


Author: Vincent Genna  |  Category: Spirituality

Did you know that the most key ingredient in making everything we attempt become a reality, that the most fundamental and innate ability we have, that the most talked about and taught practice in every self-help and spiritual book, that the number one most important element of our spiritual and physical existence, most of us have completely lost tract of? Before I tell you what that innate ability is, I would like to conduct an experiment to attempt to bring that most important trait back into light.

With your help, I am going to attempt to create a miracle in your life! If you would like to change or add something in your life, get clarity about something about a decision, see a dream come to fruition, get a promotion at work, or heck even get a new job, then this is where you need to be for the next four weeks. It will not take much of your time each day at all. In fact, it will help you to practice some of those things- you-should-be-doing-everyday-for-your-well-being anyway.

Here is what is going to happen. Every Monday for the next four weeks, I am going to give you a VERY simple exercise to practice each day for the week. THEY WILL BE SIMPLE PRACTICES, THOUGH THEY MAY BE DIFFICULT TO DO CORRECTLY!

Here is my declaration. Within the next four weeks, if you follow ALL I say to do and with passion and belief, you will begin to see your desire or dream coming to pass! Suddenly and unexpectedly, over the next four weeks, or possibly sooner, you will see or hear your desire begin to come to fruition! Give me just four weeks of your time and heart, and I will give you the ability to create a miracle in your life! It’s that simple!

It works all the time for everyone who puts the time in. Let’s discuss that point for a minute… Several people told me in the past when I did this that they wanted to do this or started to do this, but then ran into time constraints. Really? You can’t take the time to create a miracle for yourself? There are four primary reasons why you won’t have the time for this:

1) you already have all the miracles you want or need. Really? Then you need to be a guest on my show to help others create their dreams!

2) you don’t believe you can create anything.  If you are on my website reading this, something is telling you this may be a possibility. Besides, you may be tired of being a victim in your life. Now you want to be an active participant controlling the moves;

3) you’re afraid you won’t be able to make it happen. Self-doubt is a very normal fear. However, it speaks to a deeper issue of not believing in yourself and who you truly are. Then for sure, you need to be doing this and listening to my show. Let’s conquer that fear together! And,

4) you’re afraid it will happen! In actuality, this is the majority of people’s fear. As Marianne Williamson wrote, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” This is very true. Admitting this gives you the responsibility of having to live up to being co-creators with God, and that scares the hell of you! You know the saying, “Ignorance is bliss?” Here is why this is a realistic fear. You have gone through your life learning how to cope with what has come along. Ok, so you dealt with the good as well as the garbage that has come your way. If you acknowledge that you had the ability all along that you could have created it differently, that would make you kick yourself where the sun don’t shine even more than you already do. Also, since you have learned to cope without creating the life you wanted or fulfilling your dreams, you would go through such disappointing pain if you were able do it once, but then lost the ability to do it again. So, you’d rather not try altogether. WELL, IT’S TIME TO GET OVER YOURSELF AND START LIVING UP TO WHO YOU TRULY ARE-MAGNIFICENT AND POWERFUL BEYOND BELIEF!  You know you are miserable NOT being who you are.

Whichever one of these four fears you fit in, what do you got to lose to try? The least that will happen is that you will be no worse off than you are today, but you will have an amazing stress-reduced four weeks from my exercises. The best can be is that you learn how to create the life and miracles you want!

To be continued tomorrow…

The Rewards of Reading

What have you been reading lately?

Or should I ask when was the last time you read a book?

I hope it is not the latter 🙂

In a social gathering, you can usually tell who the frequent readers are. Wide readers think and speak well. They win the admiration, respect, and good opinion of others because of their great knowledge base.

Reading expands the mind. In fact, many people consider it as one of the satisfying pleasures of humans, for it involves physical as well as mental activities.

Reading is primarily a mental activity. After all, you read with your mind and use your imagination to paint the setting of the story you are reading. You use you mind to imagine the joys and pains of the main character as the story unfolds or you bring into play the different arguments and ideas brought to you by the author in the self-help book you are holding or the blog you are reading.

Reading helps you develop an extensive vocabulary. The reader may not know exactly what every single word means, but he will have a good general idea.

Reading makes you alert and curious about new words and information. Some readers develop “the dictionary habit”. Every time they come across a strange word, they try to figure out what it can possibly mean by the context. If they cannot do this, they refer to the dictionary. This is a great way not only to improve your mother tongue but also to learn a foreign language.

Likewise, reading develops intellectual curiosity by exposing you to a variety of materials. As in other forms of activity, you learn by actually doing.

Reading trains you to have an active and open mind. Merely grasping the writer’s idea is not enough. You must make a positive response to what you read. Be an active, not a passive, reader. Develop the habit of drawing your own conclusions, the habit of active thinking, of agreeing or disagreeing with the author. Keep your mind open; understand and weigh the ideas that you read. A practical part of active reading is the drawing of conclusions.

Let me share four basic rules for effective reading and better comprehension:

1)   Try to read more and more. Remember, practice makes perfect. Practicing in the correct way makes even more perfect.

2)   Develop the habit of reading for main ideas. Look for the subject and predicate. Do not waste time on details or little words.

3)   Learn to read with focus and concentration. Think of what you are reading. Do not let your attention wander somewhere else. Good readers read with understanding.

4)   Learn to budget your time. Experiment with your reading time. Try purposely to read faster. Give yourself a time limit on specific material that you read. Especially on this tip practice makes perfect 🙂

Reading is a stimulating mental activity. It expands your reality and capability. You have so much to gain in discovering the joys of reading. Go ahead; grab a book right now!

Almost like having your own personal Coach

The next best thing to having your own personal coach!,

Amazon Review December 6, 2010 By Patricia Gomez Wilkie “patgwilkie”

This book is the next best thing to having your own personal life coach. Barbara Hofmeister – author, coach and public speaker – is herself an inspiration as someone who is living the life of her dreams whilst she is in turn inspiring and encouraging people across the globe to have the courage and confidence to go for their dreams.

Success is not the result of magic, but of determined action. The steps are:
1) Know what you want.
2) Believe you can get it.
3) Take massive action to get it.

Now, as Barbara insists, it’s important to treat this book as a workbook and do all the exercises, otherwise it will not work. If you follow the steps in this book, you’ll be well on your way to living the full life you’ve always wanted.


5.0 out of 5 stars Making My Choice TO BE!!, December 20, 2010 By Anna Banguilan This Amazon review is for: To be or not to be – the choice is YOURS!

Thank You Barbara Hofmeister! You are truly an inspiration! Having a conversation with you is truly FUN and energizing AND now, I have “worked” the book and revisited many things and discovered even MORE!! I have shared this book and will continue to share it for those who WANT TO CHANGE!
You have to “work” the book. Yes, you can flip through it, but it is MORE than a book to read, it is a book to facilitate change on a cellular level, get in to it! When you buy the book, be sure to have a journal also standing by. Do the assignments, get inspired and take the action!!
Love it!!

“To be or not to be – the choice is YOURS!”

Where Did My Life Go?

If you feel like you’re just treading water through your life right now you’re not alone. Most people at one time or another feel the same way.

The mediocrity, the fatigue, the lack of drive or passion is a slippery slope, and before you know it you find yourself wallowing in apathy, lying on your sofa watching TV and wondering how you got to this point.

Here’s a truth for you:

In life you’re either moving ahead or moving back. And if you feel stuck, frustrated and in a life of someone else’s making, you’re probably going in the wrong direction.

Time is our greatest enemy. Once gone, you cannot get it back – no matter what you do. One day you “wake up” and you are 40, 50, or even 60 years old and wonder what happened to all those great dreams you once had.

And that’s why you might catch yourself saying…

Where did my life go???

Of course you probably have all kinds of hopes and dreams, but it’s as if every year that goes by you’re drifting further and further away from them, and you start to wonder if realizing these dreams is ever going to happen.

Albert Einstein said: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.”

Tell me, do you want to continue…

  • to lose precious time?
  • to live a hectic but unsatisfying life?
  • to fear ending up broke?
  • to be afraid of old age?
  • to think you could do and be more but still don’t take the right action?

Or do you want more today, RIGHT NOW!!!

You don’t want to end up with “the song” still in you!

You want and deserve Success!

You want and deserve Financial Freedom!

You want and deserve Happiness!

You want and deserve Fulfillment!

This book is not only words; it is a vivid life experience. I think this is very important, when the writer knows what she is talking about. This is not surmises or guessing how it should be, but a strong belief and knowing of the subject! After reading this book you are starting to believe there is nothing you can’t do.

The TO BE book by Barbara Hofmeister ranks in my list of best books next to those by Zig Ziglar, Napoleon Hill and Tom Peters. You’ve got two options: not read it for whatever excuse, and live your life at the same level of excuses … and keep on complaining on how tough life is for you … or read it, act up on it, and expand your life to it’s highest potential. The choice is yours. I already read it and can recommend you to do the same.

Time to wake up

Hi Barbara,

Yes, I have read your book and have written down the 5 things on the “Wake-up call” chapter. This week I’m going to dig more to answer the “What do you want” chapter. I’m in the wake-up call phase, just awake 5months ago, and I’m just glad that I accidently found you on Twitter. This is so exciting Barbara, I never done this kind of writing before

This (work)book is a “must-have” for anyone seeking to fulfill their greatness. If you desire to do, be and have more in your life, then get your copy TODAY!

Don’t be trapped by convention…

You see how we live, trapped by convention, culture, expectation of others etc.

You don’t live that way, and seem to have done it differently from an early age. From your experiences, you understand why we do what we do, and how we can change our lives by being honest with ourselves about what it is we really want from life, and then working towards achieving that.

I think many self-help books are fluffy. They are written for one purpose – to make money. The people who write them have a holier than thou approach.

Not you. You talk to your members as one of them and actually get us to get up and do it.”

A Myriad of Resources

Barbara, your new book “To Be or Not To Be: The Choice is YOURS” is a wonderful, practical and clearly written workbook. I love the quotes and other references you make to a myriad of resources. If you REALLY want to make your dreams come true, then USE this book to address those fears, the negative self-talk, and commit to doable steps to make it happen. I so enjoyed having you on the radio show.

What T. Harv Eker says about the TO BE book

Barbara Hofmeister with T. Harv Eker

We all have had dreams and big ideas on how our life could be and at one time in our youth we truly believed that they would happen. Unfortunately as we go into adulthood and keep hearing that we must be sensible and have to learn and earn a living, these dreams fade more and more into the background. It seems as if “reality” catches up with us and our big ideas appear unrealistic and gradually recede while “real life” takes over.

However for some reality is different. These people actually live the amazing life we once dreamed about. For them everything seems to be effortless and they get to the top of their fields in what seems to us to be a straight line. The truth is few do and if you speak to them or read their biographies you will learn about their struggles and challenges and realize it took them 10, 20, or 30 years to become the “overnight” success we see today.

Still, in the end they achieved what they set out to do. So what is the difference between them and those of us how seem stuck in a mediocre life?

I have studied success stories all my life and the one secret is that these people never gave up on their dreams. To truly manifest your dream life, to manifest your successes, you need to focus on them at all times. It’s that simple – even if it is not always easy to do in the midst of a busy life. Our society focuses on negative, on the problem and not on the solution. Just watch the news or read the newspaper to verify that. However if you focus on the problem you will not be able to see the opportunity that lies in every challenge.

When I set out to help transform lives I did not know how I would do it. I started by learning from the best. I modeled them and in some cases offered my services to them; even for free. I wanted to see firsthand how they did it. Have you ever tried to get to a really successful person? Usually you need to get past layers of staff and that is not easy. But if you keep at it long enough someone will eventually let you through. It is a matter of perseverance.  You need the determination to get there and it is the same in all worthwhile endeavors. Half heartedness gets you to a half lived life that usually leaves you wanting more and that is probably why you are here reading this now. You know there is more to life but that “more” seems to elude you.

Today you have come to the right place at the right time. In this book Barbara helps you recover your dreams and offers you the roadmap to your personal success. Now all you need to do is follow through. The steps and techniques she lays out take you through an easy to follow process that will help you rediscover your purpose and passion. It will also help you define the beliefs and fears that have been holding you back. It’s a powerful process that can completely transform your life. However, this is not a reading book. It takes some effort from your side to actually do the exercise offered herein. You have the choice to put this aside half read or to make a commitment to yourself and your loved ones to truly live the life of your dreams.

What will you chose?

How life can change fast

“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.” – Mike Murdock 

 As you are reading this I know you are willing and ready to change some things in your life but as we all know – alone – it is difficult. That is why life coaching is so extremely successful.

When I first had a life coach – and yes, I still have one – I started just for fun to see how it worked. I wanted to know what the buzz was all about and Oh boy did I realise what a great help a coach can be.

You see to change our habits and the believes we have grown up with takes more than just an idea, a self-help book or good intentions. It takes true commitment and continuous reminders of that commitment. That is why AA and Weight Watchers work. They are asking people to make, sometimes drastic changes in their drinking or eating habits and support them in their weekly meeting.

Life coaching is similar. Your coach is your partner in the change process. She/he will support you, remind you, prod you and mastermind with you each step of the way. They will help you get unstuck and keep you moving forward.

Sometimes it takes only a few coaching sessions and you have overcome whatever obstacle was in your way and can now continue by yourself – you are unstuck! Other times you might make it a longer relationship because there is more than one area in your life that you want to change; that you want to improve on. You decide! After all it is your life, isn’t it?

It is an undebatable fact that life coaching works extremely well as long as you have the right coach. I suggest to try a couple before you start. Most of us offer a free introductory session.

Give it a go – life will never be the same!

To your unlimited success
