Rule of Success Get Unstuck


What keeps people stuck? Month after month, year after year, that 97% of the population are stuck. You’ve got people graduating with all kinds of degrees, and the results would indicate that they know very much at all. Most people don’t understand what’s going on inside, there’s something that’s stopping them that’s called a paradigm. See when paradigms are in control nothing changes and that’s why most people have the same results year after year. People know how to do better than what they’re doing, the problem is that they don’t know why they’re not doing what they know how to do. See it’s the paradigm that produces the result, and if we’re going to change the result there’s only one way to do it. Just one, you can change the curve at a man’s environment is a merciless year of him as a human being, and if change his environment. All he has to do is improve on his environment will improve and reflect the changing man. All you have to do is to know its power hundred percent. Even the president is in the same place at the same time. Your spiritual DNA is perfect so is mine, there’s perfection within you, you got to learn, just draw it out.

However, once your desire has been firmly established, it is an expectant attitude that ensures your goal or dream is not uprooted or replaced by any opposing idea to see. When you understand how this power works, and your conscious relationship to it, you’re not going to be knocked off track by circumstance because you are expecting
the right thing to happen as if I found the 10-acre lot because I was looking for the 10-acre lot. Most people don’t expect it, they just think because they changed vocations, they change towns, they change spouses, they change clothes, they change cars, that everything’s going to happen, no. You don’t change the kitchen by painting the outside of the house. If you want your results to change permanently, and dramatically, you’ve got to change the inside.

Rule of Success Control Your Happiness


Everybody wants to be happy, but not everybody is happy. You know I can take you back to the man who gave me this book, his name is Rey Stanford. During those times, I was a very unhappy individual. I was a sad soul believe me, and I remember one day he said Bob you have to change. Would you like to be happy? Well, I used to think that was something that happened to some people but you weren’t control of it. I really never knew that I can control my own happiness, I didn’t know that, and I’m gonna tell you something. There’s a whole lot of people who don’t know that, otherwise you wouldn’t find so many people who are pretty sad. I’m going to tell you a secret Bob, he said “If you get it you can benefit from this, until you’re very old man” he said. You are in control of your own happiness. I’m going to tell you why you’re not happy? There’s a thought energy flowing into your consciousness and you know what you do? You bottle it all up inside, all of your energies focused on you.

You are the only thing that you think about, like “poor me”, “I wish that some money”, “I wished”, I wished, I wished, but your thoughts are always about yourself. If you find someone else to help, if you can help someone, and I’m gonna tell you there’s a whole lot of people out there want help, if you focus on helping other people you’re going to be one happy person. No, I don’t think I got it right away. But he knew probably I wasn’t gonna get it right away. I don’t know I was trying to figure out how to get some money, how to help myself? I want you to think about this for a moment, there so many people need help. In Chapter 14 of The Science of Getting Rich is a powerful concept, that leave everyone with the impression of increase, if you do that you’re helping people. Happiness is always found in a person who is focusing on helping other people.

Rules of Success Shift Your Paradigm


Stop and think of any large company, you can go and ask the leaders of the company who are your stars? I mean the ones that are really making it happen, and they’ll get a few, say what are they doing that’s so different? Why don’t you find out what they’re doing it and teach it to everybody? Well everybody can’t do it, why they can’t do it? You know something the stars don’t know why they’re stars, and they will say well they’re smart, some of them aren’t very smart, smarts got nothing to do with it. They have shifted their paradigm, they’ve knocked the wall down, and they built an image and they followed the rules, they just didn’t know what they were doing, I didn’t know what I was doing, I was there know for a million dollars here, I had no idea what I was doing, I said I was cleaning offices, that was almost incidental. What I was reading “Think And Grow Rich” every day, also I was listening to the recording every day. I was reprogramming my subconscious mind.

Rule of Success Use Your Imagination


Attracting what you actually want, I think James Allen put it in his little book “As a Man Thinketh” he said you don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are. Now think about that, if you want to attract what you want, you’ve got to see yourself already with it. You’ve got to understand that you’ve already got it. First of all, clearly understand this, nothing is created or destroyed that means everything’s already here, if not in one place certainly in another. Where did the iPhone come from, the iPhone came from series of ideas that individuals entertained in their mind, and they kept holding the idea until the stuff came to them that enabled them to build the phone. The stuff had already been here, nothing is created or destroyed, all science, all technology dates that. If nothing is created or destroyed everything that is already here. Our problem is we’ve got to wait until we see it outside, before we believe we’ve got it.

Start dealing with the non-physical world with the invisible world, with the world that you can’t see through these little peepers that you’ve got here we call eyes. Start to see yourself mentally you’ve been given the faculties to do that. Use your imagination, see yourself already in possession of the good you desire. That will flip your mind on to a specific frequency and you do think on frequencies it’s on that frequency that good you desire is going to start coming towards you, and you will start moving toward it. If you want to attract what you actually want, you’ve got to see yourself now already with it. And no it’s only a period of time until you moving toward it and then moving toward you and you become one with it.

Rule of Success Get Real Success


Success is a funny word. Earl Nightingale had a great definition for success, a person is successful if they know where they are, and they know where they’re going, and they’re progressively moving in that direction. He said “Success it is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal” anyone that has a goal and they’re moving towards that they’re successful. Most people think that you’re successful if you have a lot of money, but it isn’t. I wouldn’t say mother Teresa has a lot of money but she’s a successful lady.

Rule of Success Serve


Serving is an interesting word like most words it’s misunderstood, see the average person is looking at the opportunity is something they’re going to get so they’re out looking to get something opportunity is what you’re going to give. See it’s the person that’s thinking of an idea, how can I do more? How can I provide more service for the people we provide service for? Do you know? I spend almost all of my time thinking of how I can help you more than I’m helping you. I’m here in my studio, we spent a million dollars building this studio so that I can communicate more effectively with our clients. Opportunity is in giving it’s not receiving it’s not getting, it’s giving, it’s sharing, it’s putting something out there.

Rule of Success Develop Your Will


When President John Kennedy asked the father of the space program Dr. Wernher Von Braun what would take to build a rocket that would carry a person to the moon and bring him back safely to earth, he answered him in five words, “The Will To Do It” pretty light, simple answer for such an enormous question, but I’m going to tell you some, the will to do it, had a lot of power in it. What do we mean by that the will to do it?

“Will” is one of your higher faculties, your perception, reason, memory, imagination, intuition, and the will. Will is a mental faculty that gives you the ability to hold one idea on the screen of the mind to the exclusion of all outside distractions. You know it would be hard-pressed to figure out how many things that grab your attention at any given time. But there’s all kinds of things going on around that are begging your conscious attention. You can block them all out and keep one idea on the screen of the mind with your will. Will is our mental faculty, the ability to hold one idea on the screen of the mind to the exclusion of all outside distractions. It’s the will that gives you the ability to concentrate. Concentration is a powerful mental tool. How you develop your will? I’ll tell you, take your pen or a little black marker and go opposite to your favorite chair. There’s a wall opposite to your favorite chair, put a little dot on the wall when nobody sees you doing it, and nobody will ever notice the dots there. Every time you sit in that chair focus on that dot, bring all your conscious attention to bear on the dot.

Now when you do that your mind may wander. That’s okay don’t feel bad, does it wander to bring it back to the dot. Every time it wanders if you concentrate on that dot for a half a second you’ll probably set a family record. Our mind is so busy, focus on the dot you’ll find your mind wander don’t feel bad, bring it back to the dot. You can get to the point where you can concentrate for quite a while, and I’m telling you, you concentrate for a while you’re developing great powers. Or get a candle in the candle holder and put it somewhere around your favorite chair. When you’re alone light the candle and stare at the flame until you mentally become one with the flame. Now your mind may wander don’t feel bad about it bring it back to the flame. When you learn to concentrate on one thing, you can concentrate on anything because that is how you develop your will.

Rule of Success Study Yourself

Study yourself

I met a man here in Toronto, he was one that originally involved me to study at Stanford and he told me that if I don’t want the result that I’m getting in my life that I need to change myself because it is my results, and if you’re going to change yourself, you need to find out something about yourself, and to me it makes sense. I don’t think it was an earth-shattering idea, it wouldn’t give anybody a brain hernia, but it may help us to make sense to do. So I study myself and I found out that most people don’t know who they are, they really don’t. Average person can tell you their name, if I say my name is Bob Proctor they are two names, one comes from my father and the other from my mother, to me they’re called names but it’s not me it’s my name, then some say this is me, well this is me but this is me neither it’s my body like you never flown down here to the studio and say my body won’t be in today and it’s sick. We don’t say it’s my hand, my leg, my body, my name.

Who am I? Well that’s an interesting question and I believe if a person will start to study that and look for the answer they’ll find it. I think we live simultaneously on three planes of understanding. We’re spiritual creatures, we have an intellect, and we live in physical bodies. But because we lack awareness or understanding of who we are we’re totally locked into the physical world, and we let things outside of us control us. Ninety five percent of the population are reacting to life, they’re not living at all.

Rule of Success Manage Your Activities


Think of this for a moment, do you know that every living soul gets exactly the same amount of time? Exactly the same amount of time, figure it out. You get all there is. A hobo sleeping under the bridge or on a park bench, there is no material possessions, none, does nothing of any constructive nature, that person gets exactly the same amount of time as the most productive industrialist in the world. We all get exactly the same amount of time, so what we do with the time that makes a difference. I want you to think of the number of time management programs, almost everyone under the sun has time management programs.

In fact, I made one, one time spent a lot of money on it, and then I found out it was a dumb waste of time and money, do you know why? Time can’t be managed. I was having breakfast with Earl Nightingale one morning, and was downtown Chicago, and I was going with him on his speaking engagement and it was early in the morning, he said “you want to meet for breakfast?” Whenever Earl Nightingale said you want to meet me, I was there and I always made well-prepared questions, and I remember I ask him a question, “how did you learn how to master time management?” We’re having breakfast and I can still hear his fork hit the plate. He said “what are you talking about? I’ve never mastered time management, he said time can’t be managed, I merely manage my activity, and he took a little card out of his pocket, he said every night before I go to bed I write down six most important things I have to do tomorrow, these are goal-achieving activities, and when I wake up, that’s when I start working on and if I don’t get them all done I’ll add them to tomorrow’s list.

You should have about six, now if I have three that I didn’t get done today, that doesn’t mean I have nine for tomorrow, like six plus these three, those three become part of the six, you have to do the next day. When you wake up you give all your conscious attention to do those things, so you cannot manage time, but you can manage activity. You can manage your activities, make certain that what you’re doing really makes a difference. Make certain that you’re spending your time on activities that are productive, that are taking you in the direction of your goal.

Rule of Success Trade Your Life For Worthy Goals

Worthy Goals

The law of success is a pretty interesting concept. There have been books written on it, stories told on it, and lives have been spent looking for it. Let’s understand that everything operates by law. The whole universe operates by law, the definition of success I ever heard was one that Earl Nightingale originated way back in 1959. He said, “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” Let’s break that down for a moment, success is the progressive, continually moving, progressive realization, constant awareness of a worthy ideal, an ideal is an idea that you have fallen in love with, and ideal is an idea that you intellectually, emotionally, and physically involved with, an ideal is an idea that you fall in love with.

Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal, so you don’t ask Are you worthy of the idea? Are you worthy of the good? Is it worthy of you? Now you’re getting into love success, it is worthy of you to see. What you’re gonna do is trade your life for whatever it is you’re going after. So you want to make up your mind whatever your goal happens to be, whatever you are pursuing make certain it’s worthy of you because you’re chained trading your life for it. The law of success calls for you to continue moving forward to a predetermined objective in life, and bringing your life in harmony with the laws that govern the entire universe.
