Its been WAAY too long but I guess these things happen. I love collecting these stories. Here is another great one. It really does speak to the power of authenticity
By Bob Proctor
No more effort or energy is required in order to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty. The difference between the two lies in your level of awareness.
The information I’m about to share with you is extremely powerful and, in many cases, could set you free from the constraints that keep you from realizing your full potential and release you into the freedom and all of the good you desire. Yet you cannot be free until you know exactly what it is that governs, shapes, and directs your behavior and ultimately, your results. If you’re not careful, your thinking and results can be controlled by your paradigms.
Everything I teach is based on the premise that thoughts are things. Your thoughts create your life. And, for many people, paradigms can be the foundation upon which your thoughts are created.
Paradigms are your mindsets. Your ideas, the little habits that your brain has developed over the years. The “operating system” on which your mental processes run. Your paradigms create the prism through which most people view and make sense of the world around them. Information is presented to your mind in one-way or another. Your mind runs through all of the things it already knows about that piece of information and figures out where it fits in with the bigger picture. Then your mind makes a determination whether the information is good or bad, desirable or undesirable, possible or not — all of which can be influenced by your existing paradigms.
Like most things, paradigms in and of themselves are neutral. If your paradigms are positive, you will have a happy, growth-oriented life, a healthy self-image, and the ability to adapt successfully to changes, upsets, and unforeseen events. Conversely, negative paradigms can keep you stuck in old ways of thinking that can be very limiting. Negative paradigms keep you as imprisoned as does a cell and a set of iron bars. Maybe even more so, since it imprisons you in the place where all true freedom resides: the mind.
It follows, then, that if you want to create change in your life and start getting new and different results–you’ve got to change your paradigms. How do you go about that?
Step One: Write down one thing – that goal, that dream, that challenge that you have not yet resolved in your life. The subconscious mind thrives on detail so describe it to yourself as vividly as you can.
Step Two: Write down every association that you connect to this thing; everything you think about it, good and bad, everything that the thought of it brings to your mind.
One approach I have found extremely effective is to “map” it in much the same way that writers come up with plot concepts.
Draw a circle around the words or sentence you came up with in Step One. Then, in the space around that circle, write down your associations as they come to you, encircling each one and connecting it with a line to the original encircled goal. When you feel like you’ve come up with a substantial number of associations, take a good look at what your mind has shown you. You’re looking at your paradigms.
Step Three: It’s time to address your paradigms and ask “why?” I suggest that you zero in on a few of the most powerful paradigms, the ones that have the biggest negative impact.
Ask yourself, “Why do I think this? Where does it come from? Where did I get such an idea?” Keep on digging until you’ve exhausted every possible scenario.
And finally, now that you know what your paradigm is on any given topic, create an affirmation that will assist you in re-programming your mind, something that is the
opposite of your paradigm.
For example, if your paradigm is you’ll never earn a lot of money, your affirmation might be:
I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me on a continual basis through multiple sources of income. I am a magnet to money; I now have all that I want.
Write your affirmation on a 3X5 card and repeat it daily, as many times as possible. In time, you’ll begin to notice yourself thinking and acting in a different way. And, just when you think you’ve got it, it will be time to work on another paradigm!or
This is the most important video you will ever see.
Bob explains what the secret to life is.
|The day before John Kennedy’s inauguration, President Eisenhower told him that he would find no easy problems ever came to the President of the United States. He said if the problems were easy to solve, somebody else would have solved them. Kennedy said he found that hard to believe, but came to realize it was true.
Abraham Lincoln had learned that lesson one hundred years earlier. Lincoln was no ordinary person. He had moved himself from a very ordinary station in life to a position where big decisions are made. President Lincoln also learned that a position of responsibility not only brought with it big decisions, it also attracted numerous critics who would attack at every opportunity. Those opportunities arose whenever he made a decision with which his critics did not agree.
It is recorded that a close friend of President Lincoln’s once asked him if all of these attacks bothered him. Lincoln’s answer was a classic, one you should keep in mind the next time you make a tough decision and you are openly criticized.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any further business. I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won’t amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten thousand angels swearing I was right would make no difference. What a great attitude. It is also great advice to follow the next time you make a tough decision and are attacked by your critics.
From Bob Proctor
A wise man of the Orient once remarked, There are three kinds of salespeople in every company: rowboat salespeople, sailboat salespeople and steamboat salespeople.
Rowboat salespeople need to be pushed or shoved along. They generally start too late and quit too early. Because they are attempting to move ahead in the most strenuous manner, they take frequent breaks from their work and never seem to get very far. In their minds, because they seem to be working hard and investing a considerable amount of energy, they believe they are doing a good job. The rowboat salespeople are almost always puzzled by their small paycheques.
The sailboat salespeople only move in the direction of their desired goal when a favourable wind is blowing. They leave their success entirely in the hands of circumstance or some other outside source. When the winds of the surface are blowing in their direction, this group are all smiles and honestly believe they deserve the credit for their good fortune. Unfortunately, this misguided group generally ends up on some rocky shore blaming nature for their failure. These sailboat salespeople are equally puzzled by their sparse compensation.
The steamboat salespeople are in great demand and are well compensated. They move in the direction of their chosen destination continuously, through calm or storm. They are usually masters of themselves, their surroundings, and their fate.
Whenever they are slowed down or stopped from moving ahead, they are aware the problem lies in the engine within. They immediately begin their necessary repairs. The steamboat salespeople know that neither the winds of the surface nor their physical strength is retarding their progress … it’s inside. They solve the problem and move forward to fame and fortune. Are you in sales? Start your engine and win!!!

This is a very interesting interpretation of how we perceive our reality
Nearly thirty years ago I invested $750 in a personal development course. A lot of money then. People laughed, they thought I had lost my mind. The beautiful truth was, it helped me discover and develop my mind. In the course, Paul J. Meyer the author and Chairman of Success Motivation Institute shared an easy to under stand, five-point program on how to become a millionaire. Listen carefully.
1. Crystallize Your Thinking
Determine what specific goal you want to achieve. Then dedicate yourself to its attainment with unswerving singleness of purpose, the trenchant zeal of a crusader.
2. Develop a Plan for Achieving Your Goal, and a Deadline for Its Attainment
Plan your progress carefully: hour by hour, day by day, month by month. Organized activity and maintained enthusiasm are the well-springs of your power.
3. Develop a Sincere Desire for the Things You Want in Life
A burning desire is the greatest motivator of every human action. The desire for success implants “success consciousness”, which, in turn, creates a vigorous and every-increasing “habit of success”.
4. Develop Supreme Confidence in Yourself and Your Own Abilities
Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths, instead of your weaknesses … on your powers, instead of your problems.
5. Develop a Dogged Determination to Follow Through on Your Plan,
Regardless of Obstacles, Criticism or Circumstances or What Other People Say, Think or Do
Construct your Determination with Sustained Effort, Controlled Attention, and Concentrated Energy.
Opportunities never come to those who wait … they are captured by those who dare to ATTACK.
