Here is the success story of one of my favorite authors J.R. Rain.

In October 2004, my car was repossessed. I lived in a basement storage room for four months. I

stole food from grocery stores and from my roommates who lived in the real house above (I am reminded of the movie classic “Metropolis”). My brother eventually gave me $500 that saved my butt.

In the summer of 2005, I declared bankruptcy. I owed almost $70,000.

In April 2009, I moved to a single-wide trailer in Washington that I bought for $500.00.

For most of 2009, I primarily received free food from the local Help House, which gave me two bags of groceries each week, including dog food for Sadie.

In August 2009, I published Moon Dance on Kindle.

9 months later, in April 2010, Moon Dance hit #1 on the Amazon vampire charts.

Beginning in April 2011, I had the #1, #2 and #3 best selling vampire novels on Kindle for four straight months.

These days, I no longer live in a single-wide trailer. I live in a three-story home that overlooks Puget Sound.

Many have asked what I did to help turn my life around. A lot had to do with timing. After all, I had a number of books ready for Kindle when Kindle opened their doors to indie authors. Except I didn’t have success on Kindle immediately. It took 9 months to see my first wave of success.

In January 2010, I bought a book called MONEY, AND THE LAW OF ATTRACTION by Esther and Jerry Hicks. I put the exercises within the book to work. Each day, I focused on removing the feeling of “lack” from my life, and replace it with a feeling of “abundance”. Trust me, this was hard to do, especially when I was waiting in line for free food at the Help House. But Law of Attraction doesn’t need much from you. All it needs is a few minutes of your time each day. During these few minutes, your job is to take your mind off your present worries, and put your mind onto abundance. Or, more accurately, onto what it would “feel” like to have abundance. Your goal is to capture that “feeling”. That’s it. Capture that feeling and live within it for a few minutes each day. Play games with it. Write out how it would feel. Write pretend checks for things you want to buy. Weird, I know, but such exercises help capture the “feeling” of abundance. Next, make a conscious effort to refrain talking about what you don’t have.

Then be ready for inspiration to strike. Be ready to take inspired action. Don’t push anything. Wait for a great idea. Wait for inspiration. Wait for that wonderful nudge from God and the Universe. That nudge means that’s something wonderful is waiting for you.

I wish you success in all things. Remember, you are loved more than you know. It’s no accident that you are here on this earth. You are no accident. Life is no accident. Enjoy the journey, my friends.

Much love,
J.R.

    ” Impressing story “

  2. Thank You J.r. for sharing your story. I appreciate it. It is a principle that my parents have lived by all their lives and I am slowly starting to see the wisdom in this perspective. I have always been grateful for the many gifts the Creators and the Holy Ones that have given me in the past but now I am also asking for their assistance in helping me create my own abundance for the present and the future. I know that with Their Guidance and my perseverance my writing will one day give joy to others. Thank you Sara for posting your blogs.
