The Event That Changed Bob Proctor’s Life

Have you ever wanted to change your life? To do more? To be more?

Bob ProctorDo you yearn to fulfill the greatness that you know is within you?

Many people do.

But are they prepared to do the necessary work?

Sadly, most are not.

Are you?

Many successful people credit their success with making a decision to become successful after reading a book or attending a course.

Bob Proctor is one.

I recently came across a nice biography on Bob Proctor at Mindperk.

Here is what it said:

Bob Proctor is widely considered one of the greatest speakers in the world on the topic of getting rich.

He teaches people how to understand their hidden abilities to do more, be more and have more in every area of life. His teachings are based on Napoleon Hill’s ‘Think and Grow Rich,’ and his delivery is second to none!

For more than 40 years, Bob Proctor has focused his entire agenda around helping people create lush lives of prosperity, rewarding relationships and spiritual awareness. As one of the world’s most highly regarded speakers on prosperity, he is internationally known for his inspirational and motivational style.

Bob Proctor knows how to help you because he too came from a life of want and limitation. In 1960, he was a high-school dropout with a resume of dead-end jobs and a future clouded in debt. One book was placed in his hands – Think and Grow Rich – which planted the seed of hope in Bob’s mind. In just months, and with further support from the works of Earl Nightingale, Bob’s life literally spun on a dime. In a year, he was making more than $100,000, and soon topped the $1 million mark.”



There is more at Bob Proctor’s website.  One statement really stands out. Here is what he said:

You’ll need a telescope to look back to where you were.”

Wow! Can you imagine doing that?

Bob also told the following story, which we are reproducing for your enjoyment and inspiration. Here is what he said:

On October 21, 1961, a man by the name of Raymond Stanford sat down with me. He put an ‘R’ on a sheet of paper with two ‘H’’s and a ‘W’ beside it.

Ray said, “Bob, let this ‘R’ represents results. The two ‘H’’s represent happiness and health. The ‘W’ represents wealth. Do you think I’m a happy person?”

I said, “Yes, I think so.”

Ray asked, “Have you ever seen me sick?”

I had to admit that I hadn’t.

Then, Ray asked, “Have you ever seen me without any money?”

“No, I haven’t.”

Then, Ray proceeded to tell me that he thought I was one of the most miserable people he had ever met.

He said, “You’re never healthy, you always have a backache, or a cold or something. And you’re always broke. Why don’t you change this?”

I didn’t really believe I could. I was making $4,000 a year and I owed $6,000.

Ray said, “You can have anything you want. But you’re going to have to change the way you’re looking at your life.”

“What do you mean?”

Ray responded, “You’re looking at the fact that you never went to school, and you don’t have any business experience. You’re putting yourself down, and figuring out all the reasons you can’t change.

“Your problem isn’t a lack of education. Your problem isn’t a lack of experience or money. You’ve got a perception problem. You’re looking at yourself the wrong way. If you would change your point of view of YOU, your whole world would begin to change.”

Today, the company that I own does millions of dollars in business. It operates in 47 different countries, and it’s growing every day. And here I am 55 years later with a healthy body and very cheery disposition.

All I really did was change my point of view.

I want you to think about this story for a few moments, and relate it to your own life.

If you’re not as happy, healthy and wealthy as you’d like to be, I urge you to step back and look at your situation from a different perspective.

But don’t just look at it in a general or superficial way; go further than you ever have before. Look beyond the reasons you’ve come up with for why you can’t change or get what you want until you “see” a way to improve your current circumstances.

Do it now, and prepare to rewrite your story.”



Can you imagine doing this in your own life?

Well, can you? Why not? Others have!

Stop looking for reasons and excuses as to why you cannot do something and set your mind to finding reasons why you CAN!

We have enough under-achievers in this world. Become a doer: an achiever; a success. Change your perspective. Change your mindset.

Do it now!

What possible reason is there for you to wait?

Wouldn’t you like more moments of positivity, and a higher awareness of your purpose in life?
