My Story


“You have no guarantee that life will be easy, but you can be sure that you make your life meaningful.”

– James Arthur Ray


He is the author of six internationally best-selling books including his New York Times bestseller HARMONIC WEALTH: The Secret to Attracting the Life You Want; and a co-author and contributor to THE SECRET. 

Ray has worked with over 1 million people from 143 countries through his audio, video, coaching, and life and business leadership programs.  Over 1 million people have attended his live events worldwide.

His new book REDEMPTION, The Price of Leadership in Both Life and Business is set for release in 2018.

James Arthur Ray’s company hit the Inc. 500 in 2009 as one of the fastest growing most successful privately held companies in the United States, and possibly the world. 

In 2007, he was awarded the distinguished Toastmasters award for Outstanding Communication and Leadership.

His book Harmonic Wealth was voted as one of the top celebrity reads by People Magazine in 2008.

Fortune Magazine wrote a full feature article on him in 2008 heralding him as the new leader in business and personal performance. 

James has appeared numerous times on Larry King Live, Piers Morgan, The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN and Oprah.

After rising to the pinnacle of his profession, he and his company were involved in a tragic accident in 2009 and he lost everything. Since that time, he has applied the same strategies he taught his clients for decades to rebuild his own life and business and to conquer versus quit.

James’ life story is told in the CNN Documentary ENLIGHTEN US released on CNN in 2016 and now on Netflix.

Because of his experience in building from humble beginnings and scratch, as well as rebuilding after hitting rock bottom post terrible crises, James has the unique experience and ability to help those at the top, those on the climb, and those who must put their life back together to get up and climb again.

In his mission to positively impact a minimum of one billion lives and businesses worldwide, Ray continues relentlessly to bring his experience, resilience, adaptability, and wisdom to all those he’s blessed to serve and support.

James resides in Henderson, Nevada.

“I am inspired by your resiliency! Keep going and doing what you love. Until you have experienced a catastrophe, you won’t know what you are truly made of. If you can come back and rebuild, so can I!!!
You give me hope!”

– A. Ferrara

“James Arthur Ray, good to see you back bud. There were many times I wondered how you would come back from a traumatic experience. You have always been an enlightener, one who will now push forward through this physical experience to continue a vision.”
