Hello and thank you for visiting and reading my blog. My name is Joe Dalio. I am married with three daughters, and I live just outside of Buffalo NY.

In many ways I have been blessed in life. However, in many other ways I’ve just been the typical “average Joe”. I have reached a point in my life where average is no longer good enough. I strive to live the abundant, extraordinary life God has in store for me and to bring as many people as I can with me.

During the past five years, I have readย close toย 50 books about the power of the mind and how we can combine that with God’s power to live the life we want to live and reach the highest level of success. This blog is a place for me to share the great knowledge I have learned, and help others bring life to a higher level.

I certainly hope the information here puts a smile on your face and inspires you to take your life to a higher level. Just like real pies, life is sweet. Savor the flavor and enjoy the blessings : )

    I just started blogging a few weeks ago and am so happy to connect with yours. So many Christians don’t seem to know the truth of the power of our thoughts. They leave it for the new agers to use and misuse. I hope I can communicate this truth in my own way as you are doing so well? Are you a pastor and do you have a couple of books you recommend?

    • joedalio says:

      First of all, please know how much I appreciate the positive comment. It means a lot. To respond and answer…I believe God is always there for us, but He has also given us a free will that He expects us to use responsibly. I believe maintaining a positive frame of mind is part of that responsibility. It is also Biblical. My favorite verse is Mark 11:23-24.

      Thanks for even thinking it, but I am not a pastor. I am a middle school Spanish teacher. I do have aspirations to write and speak for a living eventually. I have read many books on the topic, and I am very thankful for all I’ve learned from them. One of the best is “The Power of Positive Thinking” because it was written by a Christian pastor, so the ideas are all Biblically based. I have also written an e-book which I hope to download here shortly. In the meantime, if it’s ok I can e-mail you a copy. Just let me know.

      Thank you again for making my day : )

  2. Joe, I’m glad to meet you. I think I’m going to need your feedback, since you’re an expert on what fascinates me too!

    • joedalio says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words. It’s great to meet you too. I will say that I am far from an expert. I have just learned a great amount of excellent, helpful information and reaped the benefits by applying it to my life. It is my mission to share that information to help others reach a higher level in life. I would be happy to provide any feedback. Based on the information you provide, I believe I can learn a great deal from you too : )

  3. Hey Joe,

    Hi Joe,

    I just found your blog and wanted to say that I think you’re doing a great thing here. I recently began studying the Law of Attraction and quantum physics. I am tired of living a life of scarcity and passing this horrible lesson on to my children. God created this amazingly abundant world, and I believe He wants us to enjoy it to the fullest as we honor and glorify Him in all that we do. I have just begun writing a book for my children, compiling all that I am learning about the LOA, but filtering it through the lens of my own Christian worldview. My hope is that through the process I will gain a greater understanding of the LOA, while at the same time working with God to change my current reality of debt and “apparent” lack. This is actually my Secret because I haven’t told my friends or family that I am doing this. So shhhhh…. ๐Ÿ˜€ My hope is that my life with truly be transformed when I present it to them and that they will take it to heart and have, what I hope and believe will be, a Godly instruction manual for the Law of Attraction. I have come to realize I have taught them to believe in a life of scarcity and lack, which was passed on to me from my parents and theirs before them. Hopefully I will be able to break the cycle of scarcity in my family and provide them with a way to a new, God honoring life of abundance and joy!

    I pray the Lord blesses you and your family with an abundance of everything good! I look forward to reading more of your great posts.


    • joedalio says:

      Hi Susan…I very much appreciate your comment. I especially enjoyed reading it because I can certainly relate. In many cases still, myself and my readers are the only ones who know I am trying to accomplish those “secrets” and how I am going about it.

      I certainly dont know it all yet and still have a ways to go. However, I am certainly willing to help you get to where you want to go. Just let me know any way I can be of assistance. Have a wonderful day ๐Ÿ™‚
