The Greatest Money-Making Secret in History!

The Greatest Money-Making Secret in History! 

If you want money, you only have to do one thing.

It's the one thing some of the wealthiest people on 
the planet have done and are doing.

It's the one thing written about in various ancient 
cultures and still promoted today.

It's the one thing that will bring money to anyone 
who does it but at the same time most people will 
fear doing it.

What is that one thing?

John D. Rockefeller did it since he was a child. He 
became a billionaire.

Andrew Carnegie did it, too. He became a tycoon.

What is the greatest money-making secret in history?

What is the one thing that works for everyone?

Give money away.

That's right. Give it away. 

Give it to people who help you stay in touch with your 
inner world.

Give it to people who inspire you, serve you, 
heal you, love you.

 Give it to people without expecting them to 
return it, but give it knowing it will come back to 
you multiplied from some source.

In 1924 John D. Rockefeller wrote to his son and 
explained his practice of giving away money. He 
wrote, " the beginning of getting money, 
away back in my childhood, I began giving it 
away, and continued increasing the gifts as the 
income increased..."

Did you notice what he said?

He gave away more money as he received more 
income. He gave away $550 million dollars in his 

Some people think Rockefeller started giving 
away dimes as a publicity stunt to improve his 
image. That ís not true. The public relations man 
who worked for Rockefeller was Ivy Lee. 
In Courtier To The Crowd, a great biography of 
Lee, Ray Eldon Hiebert states Rockefeller had 
been giving money away for decades on his own.
All Lee did was let the public know.

P.T. Barnum gave money away, too. As I wrote 
in my book on him, There's A Customer Born 
Every Minute, Barnum believed in what he 
called a "profitable philanthropy." He knew 
giving would lead to receiving. He, too, became 
one of the world's richest men.

Andrew Carnegie gave enormously, too. Of 
course, he became one of the richest men in 
America's history. 

Bruce Barton, cofounder of the famous 
BBDO advertising agency and the key subject 
of my book The Seven Lost Secrets of Success 
also believed in giving. In 1927 he wrote:
"If a man practices doing things for other people 
until it becomes so much a habit that he is 
unconscious of it, all the good forces of the 
universe line up behind him and whatever he
undertakes to do."

 Barton became a best-selling author, business 
celebrity, contributor to numerous causes, and 
very, very, wealthy.
While some might argue that these early 
tycoons had the money to give, so it was easy for 
them, I would argue that they got the money in 
part because they were willing to freely give. 
The giving led to the receiving. The giving led 
to more wealth.

 I'll repeat that:

The giving led to the receiving.
The giving led to more wealth.
 Today it's fashionable for businesses to give 
money to worthy causes. It makes them look 
good and of course it helps those who receive it. 
Anita Roddick's Body Shop stores, Ben Cohen 
and Jerry Greenfield's ice cream, and Yvon 
Chouinard's Patagonia, are living examples of 
how giving can be good for business.
But what I'm talking about here is individual 
giving. I'm talking about you giving money so 
you will receive more money.
 If there's one thing I think people do wrong when 
they practice giving, is they give too little. They 
hold on to their money and let it trickle out when 
it comes to giving. And that's why they aren't 

receiving. You have to give, and give a lot, to be
in the flow of life to receive.
  I remember when I first heard about the idea of
giving. I thought it was a scheme to get me to
give money to the people who were telling me to
do the giving.

 If I did give, it was like a miser. Naturally, what
I got in return was equivalent to what I gave. I
gave little. I got little.
  But then one day I decided to test the theory of

 I love inspiring stories. I read them, listen to
them, share them, and tell them. I decided to
thank Mike Dooley of for the
inspiring messages he shares with me and
others every day by email.
 I decided to give him some money. In the past I
would have given him maybe five dollars. But
that's when I came from scarcity and feared the
giving principle wouldn't work. This time would
be different. I took out my checkbook and wrote
a check for one thousand dollars.
 It was the largest single contribution I had ever made in my life
at that time.
 Yes, it made me a tiny bit nervous. But it mostly
made me excited. I wanted to make a difference.
I wanted to reward Mike. And I wanted to see
what would happen.
 Mike was stunned. He got my check in the mail
and nearly drove off the road as he headed home.
He couldn't believe it. He even called me and
thanked me. I enjoyed his boyish surprise. It
made me feel like a million bucks. (Note that!

   I loved making him so happy. I delighted in
giving the money to him. Whatever he did with
it was fine with me. What I got was an incredible
feeling of helping someone continue doing what I
believed in. It was an inner rush to help him. I
still rejoice at sending him the money.
  And then something wonderful began to happen.
  I suddenly got a call from a person who wanted
me to co-author his book, a job that ended up
paying me many times over what I had given away.
   And then a publisher in Japan contacted me,
wanting to buy the translation rights to my
best-selling book, Spiritual Marketing.
They, too, offered me many times what I had
given Mike as a gift. A true skeptic can say
these events are unrelated. Maybe in the
skeptic's mind, they aren't. In mine, they are.

 When I gave money to Mike, I sent a
message to myself and to the world that I was
prosperous and in the flow. I also set up a
magnetic principle that attracted money to me:
As you give, so you will get.

 Give time and you'll get time.

 Give products and you'll get products.

 Give love and you'll get love.

 Give money and you'll get money.

 This one tip alone can transform your finances.
Think of the person or persons who have inspired
you over the last week. Who made you feel good
about yourself, your life, your dreams, or your

Give that person some money. Give them
something from your heart. Don't be stingy.
Come from abundance, not scarcity. Give
without expecting return from that person,
but do expect return.
As you do, you will see your own prosperity

That ís the Greatest Money-Making Secret
in History! 

"If you see it, touch it.

If you touch it, feel it.

If you feel it, love it.

If you love it...Give it."

Because NOTHING speaks to the UNIVERSE louder, of your

BELIEF in self, abundance, and love, than giving.

And when the Universe hears, more will be added unto you. 

NOT AS A REWARD, but because you truly believed... in self, 


and love.
