Happy Freakin’ Friday!
As usual, this is my weekly postcard to you where I introduce a topic, question, or mystery you may want to reflect upon. Today, allow me to share an intriguing story with you.
One that may, or may not be true…
Several months ago, I was conducting a seminar in Mexico City. At the last afternoon break, I was signing books and taking selfies when a guy in his early twenties approached and began by saying, “I can’t believe it!” I asked what he couldn’t believe. He said, “Thursday night I had a dream. I dreamt that God told me, this weekend I would meet a famous prosperity guru who would make me rich. On Friday my friend sent me a WhatsApp message with a link to this seminar. I had never heard of you before, but when I saw what it was about, I immediately signed up. And now today I met you.”
“What else did God reveal to you in this dream?” I asked.
The young man replied, “He said to me that you were going to give me a watch that would make me one of the wealthiest people in Merida, Yucatan.”
I slipped off the watch I was wearing, one of my favorite Concord models, with a mother of pearl face surrounded by diamonds, which is worth about 60K. (Which is a lot of money in Mexico.) I reached for his left hand, placed the watch in his palm and said, “You mean like this?”
His eyes grew very wide, his hand holding the watch was quivering slightly and he blurted out, “Can I keep this?”
“Of course,” I replied. “I have dozens of watches. Please enjoy it in true prosperity consciousness.” I patted him on the shoulder and excused myself to sign a book for the next person waiting.
After the seminar, once again I was surrounded by people for selfies and questions. This took over an hour and waiting at the very end of the line was my new best friend with the watch.
This time, he asked if I would do him a favor and accept the watch back. When I asked why, he responded, “Instead of the watch, can you teach me the prosperity consciousness that makes you so rich that you can give away something so expensive, so easily?”
As you may have guessed, I did accept the watch back, and now he’s one of my “Padawan Jedi” studying the principles of prosperity with me. This story leads to three questions you may want to think about…
PROSPERITY TRUTH BOMBS! Check out this episode of Carl Harvey’s podcast interviewing me. There is a lot of fresh insights into living a prosperous life that you’ll find extremely helpful. And Carl’s a madman, so it’s amusing AF. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Thought for the day: The words you speak (and your posts on social media) reflect the prosperity consciousness you possess.
