This is a place where people can come to share and to learn from each other.
Hello, and Welcome!
My name is Marty Marsh and I’m the creator of this Great Living Today site and author of a number of ebooks on living life using the Law of Attraction.
I think it is wonderful and amazing that the Universe saw fit to bring you into my life. Right now I’m reaching out, giving you a cyber hug.
When I graduated from high school I was given the “I Dare You Award” which included a book by the same name authored by William H. Danforth, founder of the Ralston Purina Company. That little book was my first exposure to the self-help genre of books and programs. I was hooked, and I understand that the I Dare You Award is still being awarded to young people to this day.
It was sometime in 2002 that I had my first experience with Esther Hicks and Abraham and I have to tell you I was very turned off by the whole notion of “channeling” some entity from the great beyond. I couldn’t understand why this really intelligent woman who was saying these amazing things couldn’t just take the credit for it. So I dug my heels in and actually missed out on years of hearing — and learning and applying — some really good stuff. (I got over myself eventually and I’m making up for lost time now.)
Then it was around 2004 that I really started paying attention to the ideas behind the Law of Attraction even though I had been studying and practicing that philosophy long before. I just didn’t realize it. All the great teachers like Jim Rohn, Earl Nightingale, Napoleon Hill, Wallace Wattles, and Emmet Fox were all teaching the Law of Attraction, they just weren’t calling it that.
It was when I discovered, and became friends with, author Michael Losier that my interest in the Law of Attraction really took off. I then took training from both him and Rebecca Hansen through their Law of Attraction Training Center to become a certified Law of Attraction Coach and Practitioner. I immediately saw how LOA could be applied to business and marketing and eventually became the teacher for the marketing part of their training program. I even set up the first iteration of this site with the intention of using it as my home base for teaching the law of attraction and simple living principles.
My life sailed along beautifully for many years. In fact, I’ve always believed that I lead a charmed life, always getting what I want and always having what I need. Even during the times that life was rather bleak. But I always pushed through and always came out a better person on the other end.
But, at some point I lost my way.
I stopped deliberately practicing the Law of Attraction and found that while my life worked quite well when it came to relationships and overall happiness, my work took a dive and I began to feel as though I had nothing of value to offer the marketplace. By this time I had been self-employed for a long time.
I sunk lower and lower and was miserable and became nearly broke. Everything I had invested and cash in the bank slowly evaporated as I struggled to find my purpose and my way in the business world. I was unhappy, had little to no self-confidence and it was showing in the lack of money coming in to my bank account. I would watch the money that I had disappear and beat myself up for not being able to do something about it.
In short I became very afraid and I let that fear rule my life.
I kept wondering how the rest of my life could work so well, and yet my work and business could be doing so poorly. I had a terrible fear of dealing with money and so I chose to ignore it. And I hit rock bottom. I think I had to hit rock bottom so I could have something to push off of to start going back up.
“Rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.” — J. K. Rowling
And then I remembered and returned to my law of attraction studies and started using it deliberately, especially in the areas of money and wealth and mindset around all of that. I still have those fears come back up but now that I am more aware, I can turn those fears around pretty quickly. I definitely live by the principle of when I hear myself saying “I don’t want…” something, to turn that around and ask myself, “Then, what do I want?”
It was re-immersing myself in these studies that lead me to re-create this site again. I wanted to spend time in the work around the site to help remind me all of the time to be using the law of attraction in a deliberate way. (I always teach what I need to be learning myself, the most.) And, of course, I’ve always wanted to share this way of thinking with other people. Having this site allows me to do just that.
You see, more people today are demanding more than ever from their lives — not only in terms of material comfort but also in terms of strong relationships, work satisfaction, spiritual connection, and optimal health regardless of age. I will strive to seek out and deliver the direction, information, and inspiration that people are looking for.
I am also currently seeing a resurgence in interest in the Law of Attraction and in creating a continually growing Law of Attraction (LOA) Community. Until just the last few years, people interested in this ancient spiritual principle found knowledge in a relatively small set of books, classes and web sites.
Today, the still popular movies like “What the Bleep Do We Know?” and DVDs and books such as “The Secret” attest to the fact that Law of Attraction awareness is becoming more and more mainstream, and that people are eagerly seeking more information about this principle that changes lives for the better.
There is a current convergence among LOA resources that indicates the time has come for a wider sense of community. Publishing companies such as Hay House are not only publishing books (a traditional route for communicating about LOA), they are also holding mega-conferences with multiple authors. Projects such as “The Secret” present LOA teachings from a number of success gurus.
What the Law of Attraction community has lacked, however, is a common meeting ground, a communications forum that covers all aspects of living by LOA principles.
I envision Great Living Today to be that vehicle.
My overarching purpose with Great Living Today is to showcase LOA not just as a theory, but as a practical application in our everyday lives. To bring home — via interviews, features, columns, articles, classes and programs — inspiring examples of how the principles of LOA are being used today to create great lives — by “ordinary” people as well as by LOA luminaries.
I invite you to come here often to learn more and more about the Law of Attraction. It’s not a message you can hear just once. Once you immerse yourself into the deliberate practice, you’ll find you crave more and more reinforcement from not just the provided information but also from other LOA practitioners.
And if you have something to contribute — a blog post, a tip, an idea, a suggestion, a few words of kindness — please share with us here. The more we all share, the more we all learn, and the better each of our lives becomes because of it.
In addition, your contribution by commenting on blog posts and participating in the discussion groups, is key to the success of this sharing community.
You can never give too much away!
I give away a lot of valuable life enrichment tools and share a lot of information here about how to live your greatest life. I believe you can never give too much away. Whether that’s time, information, or money. My intention is for this site to be a vibrant and growing space for all of humanity, and I’m adding something new all the time.

And just one more thing before you go…
It is always my great pleasure to share with you gifts of inspiration that come in a variety of forms. I’d love to send you a small gift that will help remind you to be happy all of the time.
It is my main mission to get this message out — about the power of the Law of Attraction and how to use it deliberately — to as many people as I can reach, and with it, a message that living a more simple life just may be the answer to what ails you. With your help I can do just that.

P. S. I love to travel. And I believe that practicing the principles of the Law of Attraction have enabled me to have many wonderful travel experiences, but sometimes our dreams take a while to manifest in the way that we want. For 4 or 5 years prior to meeting my husband, I had dreamed of buying an RV and traveling the country full-time.
My dad and I would go out and look at RV’s and we had a great time together doing this. I think he secretly hoped I’d never find one so we could just keep sharing that time together. After I met Bill, who would eventually become my husband, we discovered that we shared the same dream. So we spent about a year together not only looking for an RV but figuring out just how we would pull-off this living full-time on the road gig while I was still trying to run a business.
But pull it off we did. And spent nearly 6 years on the road and loved every minute of it. The only reason we aren’t out there right now is because (1) I wanted a private office where I could shut the door and concentrate on my business and (2) our daughter presented us with a grandson and we don’t want to be far from him. That’s another story of manifestation that I’ll tell you about some time. Ben is very special to us and I love him with all my heart. He is the source of great joy for us both and I’m delighted that I get to be this little guy’s “Papa.”
Recently we just spent 3 weeks in Hawaii. It’s the first time I’ve taken a real vacation in my life — meaning I didn’t work while I was there. It was heaven. And to tell you the truth, that time away from it all worked wonders to help me re-think and re-shape the direction I want my life to take. That trip all started with a calendar, but I’ll save that story for another time, too.
The point is, without the deliberate use of the Law of Attraction, none of this would have happened with the ease and grace with which it all did.
My life is very good. I want your life to be very good, too.
