Many years ago, I attended a lecture given by a man known as “Norvell.” At the time, he was referred to as the “20th Century Philosopher” and frequently gave lectures to capacity crowds at Carnegie Hall in New York and at the Wilshire Ebel Theater in Los Angeles.

Norvell was one of the first public speakers to conduct seminars on the subject of creating success through mind power development. He also

wrote over twenty-seven books on the subject. His first book, Meta- Physics – New Dimensions of the Mind, became a classic best seller.

I had just finished my Ph.D. work in psychology and was not quite sure which direction I wished to take in the course of pursuing my career. One day I saw an ad in the paper announcing Norvell’s seminar, and thinking it might be an interesting experience, I decided to attend.

I remember sitting in the audience, eagerly awaiting this man whom was known as the “20th Century Philosopher.” When at last he appeared, he was wearing a white suit and began talking to his audience in a voice that was quite deep and theatrical.

I later learned that before becoming a public speaker and involving himself in mind power research, Norvell had been a vaudeville entertainer. Later, he lived in Hollywood, where he became a personal advisor to many Hollywood Celebrities, including Howard Hughes.

While this theatrical background served him well in captivating an audience, it was also quite apparent that Norvell had thoroughly researched his subject matter.

This was the first time I had ever been exposed to the metaphysical rather than the psychological aspects of the mind. It occurred to me that if these two fascinating fields could somehow be combined, the results would be truly dynamic!

With this in mind, I took it upon myself to approach Norvell at the conclusion of his lecture. I asked if I could meet with him that evening and he immediately agreed, almost as if he already knew what I wished to discuss.

To make a long story short, that was the beginning of my speaking career. I served as Norvell’s protégé for a period of three years, during

which time I traveled with him and presented my own series of lectures and seminars. Sometimes we worked together. At other times, I worked alone. Norvell not only taught me how to properly “deliver” my message, but also how to utilize what he referred to as “The Good Luck Wheel of Fortune.”

One thing he repeatedly emphasized was the incredible power of mental imagery. After explaining that the mind’s creative powers were triggered by images or “mental pictures,” he always stressed the importance of properly focusing that power in order to achieve the quickest and most effective results.

One of the techniques Norvell regularly employed was The Good Luck Wheel of Fortune.

I soon realized that this was not only a powerful too, but one that was also a great deal of fun to work with. In actuality, it is a physical picture of a person’s desired reality combined with affirmations and a “source” focus. Here is how it looks:

The Good Luck Wheel of Fortune is extremely valuable because it forms a clear, sharp image, which can then attract and focus positive energies upon specific desires and goals. In a sense, it is like the blueprint an architect uses in designing a building.

The illustration shown may be copied and adapted to your own use. All you need do is fill it in with appropriate pictures and words cut from

various magazines, books, newspapers, drawings, etc. NOTE: It is always best to use colored images since these are known to have greater power and impact upon your subconscious mind.

I urge you NOT to be fooled by the simplicity of this idea! Although it may seem like a form of child’s play, it is actually a powerful magnet that will help you to draw everything good into your life.

While you may be able to create what you want without a Wheel of Fortune, using one will cause things to happen that much faster. I know it has worked for me, and I’m sure that it will work for you!

Listed below are some helpful suggestions for creating your own Good Luck Wheel of Fortune.


It should be at least notebook size. A large poster size is even better, particularly if you have the room to mount it on a wall. The larger the size of the wheel, the more you will tend to focus your attention upon it.


Example: In the space next to No. 1, where it reads, “I DESIRE,’ you may wish to write in one of the following:
A new or used (name of automobile) To earn $1,000 in the next 30 daysTo meet someone who can assist me with…


Example: In the space where it reads, “I AFFIRM,” you may wish to write in one of the following:
I choose to attract the right automobile at the right priceI choose to accept that a new moneymaking opportunity to earn$1,000 is available to meI choose to be attract someone who will assist me with…
As you will see, affirmations, when properly used, are powerful tools for manifesting your desires. The word affirmation means to “firm up.” By using positive statements, you are “firming up” your expectancy of desired end results.

You will notice that affirmations are always phrased in a positive way. It is important to affirm what you DO want, not what you DON’T want. Instead of affirming, “I don’t want to be broke,” you should affirm that you will create a moneymaking opportunity that brings you all the money you need.

When properly phrased, your affirmations will motivate you to take ACTION! This means you are no longer willing to wait for something to happen, you are ready to MAKE things happen!

The affirmations listed above strongly imply that you will attract your desires, which simply means that you will take positive steps to find what you are looking for. Affirming that a money-making opportunity is open to you implies that you are not expecting to win a lottery, but that you are open to any opportunity that will enable you to earn the money you desire.

Look at your Good Luck Wheel of Fortune and repeat your affirmations at least twice daily – once in the morning, and once at night.


Place illustrations, a photo, or possibly a picture out of a magazine, in the spaces provided. If your desire is somewhat abstract, select an image that tends to suggest the desired end result – anything that will help you to make the connection in your mind.
A color photo of the automobile you desire A picture of a $1,000 bill or ten $100 billsA picture or drawing of someone doing what you want this person to assist you with.
The significant thing here is to show your desire in a completed form. Do not use images of how you are going to accomplish the end result, since if you do, you will limit yourself. Leave it up to the subconscious mind to figure out HOW.


Write down the name or definition of the “source” of your creative ideas. It could be a religious name, or possibly just the words “Infinite Source.” Whatever it is, this is the source from which everything is formed. It is extremely important to acknowledge and remind yourself that all good luck comes from an Infinite Source that works through your mind.


Write down a specific date that you expect to complete a project, fulfill a desire or reach a goal. Until your subconscious has been trained to respond to this process, it may take a little longer than expected. In any case, allow at least twenty-one days to complete whatever it is you desire.


Mount your Good Luck Wheel of Fortune in a conspicuous place where you are sure to see it many times each day. Each time you look at it, you will be programming your subconscious with strong visual images, which will quickly work for you.


Use Mental Imagery to speed up the manifestation of your desires. We think and create through mental images, so, in addition to reviewing the information on your Good Luck Wheel of Fortune, take a few moments and close your eyes. Start with Desire No. 1 and just “see” yourself experiencing the desired end result.

Make sure YOU are in the picture. Again, you should attempt to observe the scene in completed form. Since we all tend to think in images, and since our minds are teleological, they will begin to draw us toward whatever we picture with ever-increasing intensity.

There is nothing magical about the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune, nor can it be classified as a form of superstition or wishful thinking. Rather, it is based on a scientifically sound principle, which assures us that the mind will respond and cause us to move toward and ultimately create any image we focus upon. The Good Luck Wheel of Fortune can greatly

assist you here, since it enables you to clarify the desired end result so that your mind has a crystal-clear picture of your intention.


In case you haven’t figured it out by now, the primary purpose of the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune is to stimulate your C.M.I. (Creative Mental Imagery).

Every creation begins with an idea – an image. The subconscious mind is stimulated to action or completion through images. In Gestalt psychology there is a concept known as “closure.” In regard to imaging, it works like this:

The subconscious mind goes into a state of anxiety if there is a conflict between what we have and what we want. It is always in the process of trying to resolve the conflict between our thoughts and images with what we actually have in our physical reality. It works around the clock, even when we are sleeping, to close the gap or resolve the conflict.

The reason C.M.I. and the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune work is that they increase our anxiety in a positive manner by creating discontent within the subconscious, which stimulates your subconscious to create whatever you focus your attention on.

As you look at the images and repeat the affirmations on your Good Luck Wheel of Fortune, you immediately set up a conflict in your mind. For example, if you are focusing on a certain amount of money while you are broke, the subconscious must go to work to resolve the conflict in your mind.

Since the subconscious mind can’t tell the difference between a real or an imagined experience, it thinks that you are rich because you are constantly programming it with thoughts and images of riches, the conflict or anxiety builds until your subconscious finds a way to resolve it.

You will then be led to ways in which you can manifest the riches you have been focusing on and imaging through the use of the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune.

All of this happens without any effort on your part. Your success depends upon your willingness to hold onto the thoughts and images that support your final goal.

Your marvelous subconscious success-producing mechanism has no choice but to lead you to the people, circumstances and conditions to complete the closure between what you have and what you want. So, I urge you not to underestimate the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune. Let it work for you!


Quite simply, the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune encompasses three vital elements of the creative process: DESIRE, BELIEF and EXPECTANCY. Actually, you could sum up these three words in a single word. INTENTION. Intention is your desired end result. The clearer you are on your intention, the faster you will be able to achieve your end result.

Intention sets the laws of mind (the operation of the conscious, subconscious and superconscious) into motion. Your intention is what positions the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune so that chance opportunities are presented to you to complete your desired end result.


We sometimes desire things that are not in our best interest. In many cases, there is something better available to us, which we may not be aware of.

With this in mind, it is best to complete your mental imagery exercise (Step no. 5) with the following statement: “I accept this or something better!”

In every instance, it is wise to hold onto your goals lightly, even if you think they are the only ones that are ideally suited to you. When you have a heavy emotional investment riding on a specific outcome, you often force things to happen. Then too, you will be extremely upset if things do not turn out exactly as planned.

Meanwhile, your subconscious may be trying to alert you to an outcome with far greater potential, which you will fail to see once you become too focused on a specific end result.

It is important to be mentally flexible and to make the necessary changes to bring about the perfect end result. Should you get the nagging (intuitive) feeling that some changes are in order, all that is necessary is to change your mental images and your Good Luck Wheel of Fortune accordingly.


The Good Luck Wheel of Fortune can also be useful in helping you to discover what you want. Quite often people are not sure what they want but would know it if they saw it or were exposed to it.

A few years ago I met a man in a Las Vegas casino. His name was John. John made his living as an electronics repairman. His hobby was traveling to Las Vegas to enter the slot machine tournaments.

He told me that he would compete against other players who all started with the same bankroll. The person who had the most money after a specific period of time and play was officially declared the winner. Personally, I think slot machines are a fast way to part with your money, but John actually made profit on the tournaments.

As he and I continued to talk, I glanced toward a nearby roulette wheel and casually mentioned that it reminded me of something I had devised called the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune. When John asked me to explain what it was, I told him it was a mental and visual process of focusing the subconscious on producing a desired end result. “Of course,” I said, “it helps to know what you want.”

“Unfortunately,” John responded, “that rules me out. I’ve never been the type to know what I want. I enjoy what I do for a living, but I think there must be something more interesting to do.

I’ve always envied people who seemed to have their sights set since the age of nine or ten. It must be wonderful to be that focused and that certain about things. As for me, well, I have some vague ideas, but nothing I’m really zeroed in on.

Your Good Luck Wheel of Fortune really intrigues me, although I don’t know how I would ever use it. Oh well, I suppose it can’t work for everybody. I only wish it could. It sounds like a lot of fun.”

“I think the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune could work for you,” I insisted, “just in a different way. If you are open to suggestion, John, there is something I would like you to do.”

Noticing the receptivity in his eyes, I went ahead and outlined my plan.

“For the next twenty-one days, I would like you to clip out items or pictures from various newspapers and magazines that hold some special significance for you, capturing both your eye and your mind. Take a few moments to examine and think about every item you clip out.

At first you will have a random collection of things, but as time goes on, a pattern should gradually emerge. I believe this technique will demonstrate where your greatest powers and interests lie. Eventually, you will know what you want and will be able to use the Good Luck Wheel of Fortune to help you acquire it in the shortest possible time.”

The next time I talked to John, which was about six months later, he was extremely excited. I knew, even before he told me, that some major changes had occurred in his life.

“You were right, Dr. Anthony,” he said, with great enthusiasm. “I’ve been clipping out items, just as you asked me to do, and one day I realized that most of them had to do with either electronics or playing the slot machines.

It got me to wondering if there was any possible way of combining the two. With some further research, I found several companies in Nevada that sold used slot machine. Where I come from, slot machines are illegal for gambling purposes. However, they are legal for home or private use.

To make a long story short, I opened a store that sells antique and modern restored slot machines. Since I have an electronics background, it wasn’t hard for me to learn how to repair them.

Business is fantastic, and I’m doing something I really enjoy! In addition, I’ve put together several ‘junkets’ and taken people from where I live over to Las Vegas to the slot machine tournaments. I can even write off the expenses on my business. I owe it all to you because your Good Luck Wheel of Fortune helped me to focus on what I wanted to do

and gave me the inspiration to search out the connections to make it all possible.”


As you can see, anything is possible if you have the means, the knowledge and commitment. The Good Luck Wheel of Fortune is designed to accelerate the manifestation of your desires. Give it a chance and I can guarantee you that the more you use it, the more you will WANT to use it!
