Bob Proctor at Montreal event, September 19, 2007

without comments

I attended the Health and Wealth celebration featuring Bob Proctor at the Mont Royal Center in September. Like a lot of people, I had seen him in The Secret and I had read one of his books (You were Born Rich) but I didn’t really know who this fascinating man with the white hair was. I had read that he was the heir to the teachings of Andrew Carnegie, Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) and Earl Nightingale/Lloyd Conant. He had been ‘chosen’ to keep this tradition alive. His life was transformed, he says, after reading Hill’s book. Once you are in the lineage of Wattles, Carnegie, Hill et al, your mission is to spread the word. Proctor continues to maintain a work and speaking schedule that would exhaust people half his age (he is a trim, energetic 73).

With all the flurry around The Secret, his schedule must be even more hectic and busy. Like most empowerment authors and professionals, Proctor had a tough youth and worked in a series of dead-end jobs until he got enlightened by a series of authors and mentors. His life turned around radically, he says, when he began ‘building an image in my mind; straying true to it and letting it manifest.” “Don’t be governed by tradition and old recordings in your head from the past, create new and original ones.” Make a decision for what you want because “results are the results of your level of awareness.” If you aren’t aware, you’ll blow it, he states emphatically. Are you resisting change and fighting to stay where you are, in your comfort zone? Well, the best way to expand your awareness and change your life around is the path to wealth and success he took many years ago…Find a mentor and a life and business coach! “Effective education combined with professional life and business coaching over a reasonable period of time will expand a person’s level of awareness and make him successful!” Ask yourself: What am I presently doing? Is it working? What would work? What doesn’t presently work? So put all your energy in what works and stop doing all the rest. If your present paradigm has you wired to stay where you are, (a paradigm is a multitude of habits), it will act like a thermostat and keep you at the same ‘temperature”, i.e. not succeeding, static. “And if you aren’t moving forward in your life, you must be going backwards.” So, be willing to change your paradigm. Your present habits have come from the “past generations”, i.e. such as your parents, teachers. Old programs. Install a new one in your mind. “Change just one question and you can change your life.
Most people live from the Outside to the Inside. But the most limiting behavior comes from living from the Outside to the Inside. Usually, it begins with a comment made by an adult (parent, teacher) to a young child: “You’ll never end up doing anything good with your life because you are lazy.” The adult can tell the child that he is lazy or stupid and the latter will spend his life with this limiting belief…the Outside will condition the Inside perpetually. Other negative beliefs can be added to the mix thus creating a paradigm. “Begin living from the Inside to the Outside by choosing and deciding to create new images of success. Make a decision: I’m going to begin living in a new way, starting today.”

Bob Proctor, recently quoted in the media about the The Law of Attraction, stated: “When we get even a glimpse of who we truly are, we are absolutely dazzled–because we’re spiritual beings. When we grasp that truth, then we realize that all the knowledge and power we need, we already have.” We see a man whose mission is to help people discover this reality for themselves, to discover who they truly are, and how they go about going that.

The planning of the September event (Sheldon Kagan) was mediocre at best. The other speakers Jerry Roberts, Archie Robertson, etc…made pitches for various products (books, land, and so forth). Sitting in the audience, you often had the impression that you had paid good bucks to listen to people do their infomercials. I suppose that comes with the territory and takes some getting used to. Finally we had to sit through a much too lengthy Christian Limoges (N.D) presentation on healthy habits, the need to eliminate poisons from the body and other such information. So, by the time Proctor hit the stage at 10:20, many people were ready to leave (or had already left) and Proctor remarked that he had never spoken this late in the proceedings, ever.

Nevertheless, I thought that much of what he had to say was worth the wait! It is unfortunate he didn’t appear earlier, in prime time. Maybe the organizers will attract the winning formula the next time around!
