Bob Proctor is one of the best well-known self-development speakers in the world. He was the star and speaker of the hit movie, “The Secret”. He has performed more than 40 years of research and is a perfect example of the fact that his methods work. You Were Born Rich by Bob Proctor was originally inspired by Bob Proctor’s journey while reading the book, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
Throughout Bob’s first year of reading Napoleon’s bestselling book, he made his first $100,000.00. The very next year, he achieved his first million. Think and Grow Rich is focused on the fact that everyone is entitled to the same amount of success. It is meant to help people achieve not only financial success, but success in the realms of a person’s mentality, emotional health, and overall life in general.
This book brings a lot of attention to the belief that a person can achieve whatever they want in life if only they have faith that it can happen. It is about coming up with a vision, keeping that vision on your mind at all times, and then taking the simple steps toward achieving it.
since most people have a difficult time knowing the steps needed to make their dreams a reality, Bob Proctor has created this book as a guide. It is designed for even the most inexperienced individual to follow and become successful as a result.
In You Were Born Rich, Bob Proctor discusses what he refers to as the “Acorn Analogy”. It is focused on how an acorn can quickly fall from a tree, disintegrate, and then becomes covered and dirt and ultimately, “planted”. From there, the acorn begins to attract the matter needed to grow. The matter can also be referred to as energy. If understand and utilized, the “Acorn Analogy” can help people to create success in their lives.
This book was designed to help people to “snap out of it” and get with the program. There is really no such thing as “meant to be” in the world of success. There are no “destined” results except for the one’s you create for yourself. Before a person can really create a noticeable change in their lives, they must understand how to attract the right types of circumstances and energy to make that change necessary.
You Were Born Rich by Bob Proctor helps people to understand that no matter who they are, what types of degrees they have (as well as the one’s they don’t), how educated they are, or how horrible their past has been that they too can become rich by simply believe in themselves and understanding how their own personal beliefs about success influence their lives.
One of the most beneficial things about this book is that it provides everything you need to know about creating your own destiny. It is impossible to know what to do without direction. You Were Born Rich by Bob Proctor breaks everything down into easy-to-understand instructions that anyone can comprehend.
Think about the last time someone gave you a compliment. It could be your boss, your friend or even a stranger on the street. What was your reaction? Did you graciously receive the compliment and reply with a heartfelt “thank you”? Or did you stammer and find it difficult to accept the compliment? Or maybe you would try to discredit it by saying, “Oh it was nothing really”, or “It was all HIS idea” or HER idea “not mine?”
If you said “yes”, you’re not alone!
Since young, we have been taught to be humble and not brag about our accomplishments and wealth. This is especially true if you’ve been growing up in Asia, where unconditional humility is a common practice. For example, when we visit our relatives, our parents would always remind us to give compliments to our elders the moment we step into their homes, before we expect to receive anything in return.
While there is nothing wrong about being a great giver, the problem is that most people have been so accustomed to giving that they find it uncomfortable to receive! The biggest reason why most people aren’t getting what they want in life is because they have not learnt to be gracious receivers. If you’re not willing to receive, you not only deny yourself the chance to benefit from the kindness of others, you also stop others from experiencing the joy of giving.
If you want to attract more Wealth, Love and Success, you must learn to strike a balance between giving and receiving.
Here are 3 simple exercises you can try that will help you to find that balance and attract more success into your life.
Learn to Receive Compliments Graciously
No more returning compliments for a specific time! If someone gives you a compliment, you’re not allowed to give them a compliment at that time because it dishonors them. Instead, be grateful and respond with a simple “Thank you!”.
Learn to Celebrate and Count Your Blessings
Rejoice every time you receive a gift no matter how small (or big) it may be! Even if you find a 10-cent coin on the street, celebrate and say to yourself “I’m a money magnet!” If you get a small discount off a grocery store item, don’t think it’s a mistake. Accept the situation, smile AND celebrate! Abundance comes in many forms, so be grateful and count them all as your blessings.
Learn to Reward Yourself
Life is not all work and no play! Each time you feel like it, take some time off to rejuvenate yourself and nurture your spirit. Go on a short holiday, treat yourself to an extravagant meal or simply buy yourself that expensive gift you’ve been eying for a while now. When you learn how to pamper yourself, you emit a powerful vibrational energy that tells the Universe that you live abundantly, and by the Law of Cause and Effect, you will start to receive more opportunities to live a more rewarding and fulfilling life
Success rewards those who take positive action.
Try the exercises for just 1 week, you’ll notice that by getting into this new mode of receiving, you’ll start to create a joyful energy that attracts greater success and an abundance of good things into your life
