Is success just something that happens to people? Is it like winning the lottery? Do we get “success” by having things handed to us or knowing the right people? Or, is success something much more complicated than that?
Success isn’t a game of chance. Things will happen that are out of our control, but really, success is a science. It doesn’t just happen — it’s something that grows out of your mindset and the way you live your life.
For example, a fear mindset isn’t going to produce abundant results. Neglecting to set goals isn’t going to make things happen. To have abundance, we need to think abundantly. To make things happen, we have to push ourselves to reach hard goals. And to learn from our mistakes, we need to be willing to hear from others and use their wisdom to fuel our dreams.
Success doesn’t start in the future. It starts right now. It starts with the thoughts and the stories you tell yourself. It starts with how you treat the people around you.
Today on The School of Greatness, I have an expert on the human mind, Bob Proctor, to teach us the science of success.
Bob Proctor is a New York Times bestselling author, motivational speaker, success coach, and expert on the human mind. In short, he’s a master thinker. One of his bestselling books is called You Were Born Rich, which is all about finding success in your present, rather than reaching for it in the future. Bob is also featured in the popular film The Secret, one of the most popular self-help films ever made.
Bob was a high school dropout who started off his career working low-paying jobs. At age 26, Bob read a book that changed his life: Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Bob moved from making a couple thousand a year to hundreds of thousands to over one million a year. He’s spoken about his journey around the world and has been featured on a number of TV shows, such as Ellen and Larry King Live.
Bob Proctor partnered with attorney Sandy Gallagher to create the Proctor Gallagher Institute. The Institute offers elite programs and coaching courses that teach people how to use the power of their own minds to create the ideal life.
Bob says he was going nowhere before he “woke up” to how the universe works. He’s passionate because he figures that if it could work for him, it could work for anyone.
I had Bob on The School of Greatness back on Episode 835, where we talked about how having an abundance mindset naturally creates an abundant life. Today, we talk about the practical things we can do to change our mindset and set ourselves up for a life of success.
Join me on Episode 950 to learn the secrets to unlock your mind for greatness with the master thinker himself, Bob Proctor.
