When host Moneeka Sawyer asked Dr. Joe what his mission was, guest Dr. Joe Vitale answered: “My mission is to inspire people to go for and achieved their dream, and I do that through my books, through my audios, through my talks, my speeches, my music, the movies I’m in. Everything that I’m doing is in the direction of awakening people. I want them to be free. I want them to dissolve all their limiting beliefs. Whether it’s about money, success, empowerment, so that they can live this life of being an awakened millionaire with that balance of the spiritual and the material all enclosed in one. And to do that, I inspire people. That’s my goal. That’s my mission.”
The conversation turned to Dr. Joe’s challenging journey to success, starting with being homeless. Dr. Joe Vitale shared: “My Thailand friend, his name is Andres Pira, said that I was one of the inspirations for him because he had heard, I had been homeless way back in the late 1970s in Dallas and that’s long before the Internet. That’s long before a lot of things like wonderful shows like this that we take for granted today. Back then it was a lonely, dark night of the soul. I was homeless and I went into poverty for a good 10 years when I lived in Houston. 10 years of struggling and I wanted to be an author, but I was not an overnight success. I would wait. I’d send out my manuscripts. I was persistent, I was productive, I was creative, I was relentless, but it was not happening right away.”
Dr. Joe went on to say: “What happened to me is what I teach, and what I want to have happen to everybody. Your beliefs are creating your reality. Now, as I say that, and even when I first heard that, it’s like, that’s impossible. How did my beliefs create homelessness? How did my beliefs create poverty? How do your beliefs create bankruptcy or struggle or unhappiness or misery? How does all of that happen? And what I teach in my work and in my books is that you have to go deeper than what you consciously are thinking, into the subconscious mind/the unconscious mind. It is a database of software programming. This is the data. This is the belief system that you inherited, for the most part. As we’re all born into life, we start unconsciously downloading beliefs. Everybody around us such as your parents had their own baggage. They had limiting beliefs about relationships. They had limiting beliefs about money, success, deservingness and whether you could have a blissful life. So then you end up being an adult, like I ended up being an adult and you look around and think, how come I’m not happy? How come I’m not blissful, how come I’m struggling with money? How come I’m not a success? How come I’m unemployed? How come my business doesn’t work so well? What we have to do is dig deep and find out what are the beliefs that are operating.”
Dr. Joe Vitale is a prolific author of many bestselling books including The Attractor Factor, Zero Limits, Anything Is Possible: 7 Stops to Doing the Impossible, and his latest, The Miracle: Six Steps to Enlightenment.

As the interview concluded, Dr. Vitale left this parting thought: “I believe at this point in time there isn’t anything that’s impossible.“
