You Were Born Rich By Bob Proctor

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.

Secrets to success of world’s 50 richest people

By Rachel McArthur Special to Al Arabiya EnglishTuesday, 15 March 2016


It may be hard to comprehend that a small number of individuals could be worth the same as a whole country, but Wealth-X’s latest ‘rich list’ shows that the top 50 wealthiest people in the world have a combined fortune of $1.45 trillion. That’s nearly equal to the GDP of Australia.

The recently released report – compiled by the wealth intelligence firm in collaboration with Business Insider – shows that the United States is home to 29 billionaires on the list, more than any other country. Only one billionaire from the Arab world – Saudi Arabia’s Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal – made the top 50.

But that doesn’t mean that they’re the only rich people in the world of course. In fact, there are a lot more billionaires than you may think.

“No one knows billionaires like we do,” Mykolas Rambus, Wealth-X CEO, tells Al Arabiya English. “Forbes has identified 1,694. [As of today] we have found 2,355.”

Men vs. women
Back to the top 50, however, and there are a few key trends. Firstly, there’s a distinct lack of female billionaires – with only 4 in the top 50 compared to 46 male billionaires. But the oldest billionaire goes to a woman: 93-year-old L’Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt, who’s ranked the 17th wealthiest person in the world, with a net worth of $29 billion.

Tech on top
Meanwhile, when it comes to the sector with the most billionaires, technology comes out on top, thanks to 13 personalities in the top 50 that includes Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos – estimated to be worth $56.6 billion – as well as Google co-founders Larry Page [$38.5 billion] and Sergey Brin [$37 billion].

The youngest billionaire, of course, is the 31-year-old co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg. He’s ranked eighth, with a net worth of $42.8 billion.

So is there a reason why they’re more successful than others? What do they like to do? What traits do they have in common? Rambus gives us the lowdown on what makes a billionaire.

1) There is only one characteristic billionaires have in common: “And that is an obsessive personality,” says Rambus. “Their financial wealth is only a powerful indicator of their behavior.”

2) Traditional education isn’t a key factor. “Learning yes, education no. Billionaires are some of the most learned people on the planet, but not necessarily heavily degreed.”

3) But working hard definitely is. “Billionaires are on balance some of the very hardest working people you will ever meet. Consider them as having mastered work-work integration. Remember, they are obsessive personalities whose success happens to be manifested through money.”

4) Good diet and fitness habits play a large role in their success. “Barely sleeping and being constantly on the go requires constant physical maintenance.”

5) They use their money differently. “Most billionaires are entrepreneurs, and a result they are used to taking risks. It is how they made often times their first fortune and have grown it since,” Rambus explains. “But to be clear, billionaires take highly calculated risks, and many of them would not see their decisions as risky at all, and they look for opportunities constantly.”

The Biggest Reason Why Most People Don’t Get Rich

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

From Homeless to Millionaire – 3 Success Lessons from Chris Gardner

My name is Evan Carmichael and I believe that the fastest and most effective way to build a business is to model the strategies of people who have already done what you’re trying to do. I call it Modeling the Masters.

Today we’re going to look at how a high school dropout and homeless man would go from living on the streets and bathing in public restrooms to building one of the most successful stock brokerage firms in America. This is the story of multi-millionaire Chris Gardner and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success.

“Find something that you love. Something that gets you so excited you can’t wait to get out of bed in the morning. Forget about money. Be happy.” – Chris Gardner

Chris Gardner (born on February 9, 1954) was the only son of 12 children that was being raised by a single mother. His single mother was trained as a schoolteacher, but wound up taking on numerous part-time jobs in order to provide for her family. Gardner and his siblings were transferred back and forth between relatives and foster homes. His mother had been imprisoned twice; once, for allegedly receiving welfare while working, and the second time for attempting to burn down the house of Gardner’s abusive stepfather. Gardner’s prospects were narrow coming from an environment such as this.

While on a sales call, Gardner met a man who was impeccably dressed and drove a red Ferrari. As fate would have it, the driver of the Ferrari was a stockbroker. When Gardner heard that the man was earning over $80,000 a month, he decided that his future lied in investments. He had no education, no experience, and no connections, but that was not about to stop Gardner from achieving his new dream. Once he had decided to become a stockbroker, Gardner immediately set out to find an investment firm that would give him a chance. In one brokerage firm, Gardner finally found a manager of a training program who was willing to give him a shot. However, when Gardner showed up for his first day of work, the manager who had hired him had been fired and no one else had ever heard of Gardner or his new position. He left with his hopes disappointed.

Action Item #2: Be the Best You Can Be

Action Item #3: Remember Your Roots


“Baby steps count, as long as you are going forward. You add them all up, and one day you look back and you’ll be surprised at where you might get to.”

“That’s when I learned in this business, it’s not a black thing, it’s not a white thing, it’s a green thing. If you can make me money, I don’t care what color you are. So that’s how I deal with that to this day.”

“I was Chris Gardner, father of a son who deserved better than what my daddy could do for me, son of Betty Jean Gardner who said that if I wanted to win I could win.”
