Welcome to the creating wealth show. This is your host, Jason Hartman and we are at a 10th show today, Episode Number 530. Episode 530. Our guest today will be the ever so famous Bob Proctor, you’ve certainly heard his name, I’m sure he is a very well-known success coach, you know, the involved with the secret many books and programs and so forth. And just a really good interview with him as we talk about all of the mindsets necessary for success and growth and abundance in our lives. So we’ll get to him in a moment. But first, I am coming to you today from the beautiful Hilton La Jolla, California. And I’ve been at a mastermind meeting here for the last couple of days. I’m with Fernando, we are out on the golf course. And also we have Coco my dog here, Coco Say hello. Can you say something? She’s not? She’s not she’s not saying anything as she Fernando. I think she might speak because she seems very intrigued by these birds and, and animals here and, and movement. A little bit of wind too. So anyway, Fernando, I wanted to get a little bit of a recap and your thoughts on our venture Alliance mastermind, our first inaugural weekend that we finished Sunday afternoon comments.
I enjoy that quite a bit. It was as you said it was the inaugural event. The venue was beautiful San Diego was just very nice. And the venues you know, the meals that we share together, I think were top of the line, I really enjoyed it. The meetings were very productive. The the comments that I received and personally what I thought was the most helpful part of the mastermind is really having people do the round robin on the hot seat and explain to the group, where they are, what their their aspirations are and ideas on how to go forward with their portfolio. I think that that helps everyone in the group, not just the person that is in the hot seat. And it really brings a sense of community and a sense of
Jason Hartman 3:15
intimacy. I mean, it was it was hard. Yeah,
yeah, that you don’t see in, in a larger group. It was a it was a smaller group. And I think it was just the right number of people in the correct format for jelly to occur between the members. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Yeah,
Jason Hartman 3:31
good, good, good stuff. You know, I gotta tell you, you don’t know that. I’m gonna say this. But one of the highlights for me. In addition to what I already mentioned, on the last episodes intro, you know, of course, the hot seats were fantastic. The venues, all of the venues were fantastic. But I tell you one of the highlights for me, Fernando was seeing the expression on your face, as you and your lovely wife walked in to George’s in La Jolla for lunch. And it was especially intriguing is, you know, you’re you’re a wealthy guy. Okay. You know, you’ve been to beautiful places around the world and nice restaurants and so forth. But I wish I had a camera for it. Because the expression on your face when you walked out on that terrorists at George’s and you just said beautiful.
We were very impressed. I mean, I I haven’t been to the Jolla and it was just, it was just the views and and you know, one of the things that we did that was kind of unexpected was a segue, right? Yeah, right. And, you know, we got to ride along the coast. Just Just beautiful scenery. And just it was very enjoy for me, we, my wife and I both had a great time. The the events were were just just about the right. gift, intensity for the group to really get to talk a lot and really the networking and getting to know people at a deeper level is a big part of the mastermind, you don’t you don’t see that in, in other formats.
Jason Hartman 5:07
Yeah, it’s a, it’s a deep personal level, that community that, you know, as I as I always say, the stock and trade of friendship is shared experiences. And so one of my big goals with the venture Alliance mastermind is to have people share experiences together, so that they can, if they choose to, you know, there’s no requirement to it’s just a one off thing, so that they can do deals together so they can invest together, that’s the idea. get people to be in this friendly, intimate, community oriented environment, so that they really know each other, because, you know, on the spectrum of investing, you have what I believe in and still believe in and have believed in for many, many years is that people should be a direct investor. So they don’t violate commandment number three, so they don’t leave themselves susceptible to the three major problems. So the three problems with not being a direct investor is, you know, might be investing with a crook and idiot, or someone taking all the money off the top. So the way that the people get to vet each other, is they hear them speak, they hear them share, they know, their level of experience, they know where they are, they know their level of intelligence. And so when they do deals together, you know, it’s hopefully they trust each other. And, you know, they vet them that way, by just the personal relationship of knowing them. They know their level of competence. And then also, you know, if you there’s not a management fee off the top any big management fee of a fund manager, so, like in a wall street or a traded investment, so that’s really my goal for the venture Alliance to create this environment for people to do deals together. Now, of course, at you know, our our normal events, meet the Masters creating wealth. You know, we’ve had clients get together those events, and I highly recommend and you know, those are super inexpensive, that people just attend some of those live events, so that they can meet us they can meet our clients and go from there. So yeah, that’s good. Other comments on that before we get to our guest today, Bob Proctor?
Well, just to kind of round off the the weekend the venture Alliance, we had a guest come in to talk and give a perspective on his own mastermind, I think that was very useful and, and we’re his mastermind
Jason Hartman 7:29
three days here. We’re going through which is an excellent,
Jason Hartman 7:33
we’ve had five days of masterminding here in a row, you know, Fernando, we had, we had the venture Alliance over the weekend. And then Monday morning, we started here at the La Jolla Hilton with another mastermind and this is the third and final day
of it. And I think by the time we’re done this week, our brains are gonna be full, we’re gonna have to really pick there’s so many nuggets, and I hear this from people that were there and I can see it myself where you learn so much in perhaps it won’t just just give you an idea right away, but it will go into your radar screen, and maybe a few months from now something that that somebody mentioned, will trigger and you’re ready to take advantage of that it germinates,
Jason Hartman 8:11
you know, the seed is planted, sometimes it’s even planted subconsciously. A lot of it is in that way. It’s it’s the concept of not even a specific idea or technique. But the concept of you can do it too. Because you you see all these people around you. And you see what they’re doing. And and you know, they’re just regular people who happen to take action on something. And people have different sized portfolios, different businesses, different investments. And so that I think that’s another part of it, not just a specific idea or technique, right.
And of course, as far as the business at hand. You presented a couple packages all over did a great job presenting one of the packages, you presented yours.
Jason Hartman 8:53
And when you say package, I just wanted to find that for the listeners who obviously weren’t there most people weren’t. I presented a couple of deals that I’m working on to the venture Alliance, one of them really interesting and exciting, but kind of speculative, like I would never present that on the podcast, or at one of our, you know, bigger public seminars. It’s specifically for this kind of exclusive group. That’s a real exciting potential giant homerun, that, you know, could be an $8 million investment that turns into Who the heck knows, maybe it’s a $40 million investment or a $40 million dollar cash out deal on that. So, you know, who knows what it might turn into could be a flop? I don’t know, you know, it’s a speculative deal, like I said, but occasionally some speculative deals could be could be home runs with proper due diligence and research, obviously, you know, not not totally speculative. And then all of our analyst for the venture Alliance, he presented a portfolio of homes, you know, and I can’t remember how many were in that one was it 3040 houses or something? I don’t remember. I don’t remember either. But yeah, you know, he looked at that. So that’s what you were saying.
Yeah, I think that that was that was a very interesting and again, people, people don’t don’t get to see these deals, if you’re not part of that community, you know, it’s very difficult for these larger deals to, to show up in front of you. And with the guidance and the filtering that happens for them to even be presented. It comes with value, you know, if I have it vetted by people that have been in the business for a while, or people that are, are involved in real estate, I feel, I feel very differently about how the deal might make sense for me or not, I would never just go out there and try to find this on my own, it would just be too speculative. So another piece that we did is we presented our vision for the company that we are forming together, and I got good feedback out of that, as well, the software company after company, I think there was very valuable. And we also presented that at this mastermind. And we got very valuable feedback on
Jason Hartman 10:59
different kinds of feedback.
Yeah, different angles. And, you know, the, again, the intimacy in the networking, the level of, of trust that happens through a mastermind, really pays for itself, when you get that straight feedback. And you’re not looking for people just to shake their heads and agree with you, you’re looking for truth,
Jason Hartman 11:20
you know, does that make sense? That’s what happens when you deal with vendors, contractors and employees, they tend to nod their head. Yes, they’re kind of the Yes, man syndrome, right. But here, when someone doesn’t have a direct stake in it, you’re gonna get some constructive criticism. And that’s what’s good. The other amazing thing about our venture Alliance meeting is that, like, you know, you can present something and someone will throw it just one little nugget, one little resource, one little connection. Oh, I know, so and so. And I can introduce you to them
that like that one little thing could be worth, you know, half a million dollars. You know, we just had an example today. Right, right. One of the members, Cory mentioned, one of the companies that I work with that does rent collection, and what did you say you can say he can say four to $500 a month or something like that, just from that little comment. And that is awesome. I obviously learned quite a bit, especially from him. Right. But it’s just an example of the exchange that happens during these these masterminds.
Jason Hartman 12:26
I think that i think that’s summed it up pretty well. So we’re not going to talk about venture Alliance on every podcast. Don’t worry, folks. We just came off that weekend. And we’ve been at this other mastermind. So we’re kind of jazzed up about it. But And last but not least, before we get to Bob Proctor Our guest today, I want to let you know that Fernando and I are headed to Chicago, in Grand Rapids, two markets of ours, one where we’ve got some interesting land contract opportunities in Grand Rapids, some interesting a single family home investment opportunities in the Greater Chicago area. And we are headed there next month, we will be there in July. And this is not a formal property tour, we were trying to plan one for somewhere around July 25. But it just isn’t coming together for us for various reasons. So what we wanted to do is something a little different kind of along the lines of our private tour option, which some of you have taken us up on where I go meet you in a city or another investment counselor meets you in a city and we do a private property tour for you. This won’t exactly be that, but it’ll be a little bit of a, we’ll call it a Hangout tour. And I think we’re gonna be there. We figured if a few of our listeners want to come along and join us, we might as well have that we’re gonna put something on the website with very reasonable pricing, if you want to join us. And we’ll we’ll probably start in Chicago, and then we’ll head over to Grand Rapids, that’s about a three hour drive. It’s probably a very pretty drive, because you go right around the great lake. So I think that’ll be neat. And you can just join us and hang out with us for a few days. Fernando, do you have the exact dates on that?
Yes, it will be July 16 through the 19th. The 19th is Sunday, and the 16th is Thursday. So it might be a good idea to plan on getting there late on the 15th, which is Wednesday. We would then take advantage of the full day on the 16th and 17th and 18th. And then on 19th. We’ll wrap it up to Sunday. After the the event. Jason and I are going to another mastermind meeting in San Diego. Yeah, yeah, back here.
So we’re flying back Sunday night from from Chicago to San Diego. So these are the days
Jason Hartman 14:48
My life is starting to feel like one giant mastermind.
You’re going to be the master of your mind. So there you go.
Jason Hartman 14:55
Hey, Napoleon Hill is right. These things are so valuable. I just I just cannot Believe it, it just can cut cut years off your learning curve and your success and growth curve. So it’s really a great thing. Anyway, hey, thanks. Let’s get to our guest Bob Proctor today. Check the website Jason hartman.com. For updates on our Chicago, for lack of a better name, hang out and tour, an informal property to or no seminar just a informal hang out with us and, and tour around. And we will go from there. Okay, here’s Bob Proctor. And let’s talk about success. It’s a 10th show.
It’s my pleasure to welcome Bob Proctor to the show. You’ve probably heard his name. He is chairman and co founder of the proctor Gallagher Institute, author of many best selling books, including spiritual marketing, proven five step formula for easily creating wealth from the inside out. Also, you were born rich. Now you can discover and develop those riches, author of the new book the ABCs of Success, the essential principles from America’s greatest prosperity teacher, Bob, welcome. How are you? I’m just doing great, Jason, thanks for having me on your show. It’s good to have you. And you’re coming to us today from Toronto, Canada. Is that correct?
Bob Proctor 16:10
I am in Toronto. That’s right. I’ll be in Phoenix tomorrow by noon. Oh,
Jason Hartman 16:14
there you go. Well, you know, Bob, I’ve been following your work for many, many years. You know, how long have you been doing what you do
Bob Proctor 16:22
that 35 years? So
Jason Hartman 16:24
that’s a long time. By almost anybody’s standards, I guess it sure is. And I think maybe I’m the Dean of personal development moniker needs to switch from Earl Nightingale to you possibly give him that length of time. So that’s great, good stuff. Tell us a little bit about your general philosophy of success. I mean, you know, your body of work is so large, how many books do you have, by the way?
Bob Proctor 16:48
Oh, I don’t have that many books. I’m more I’m more into programs, I’ve only got three or four books. But I’ve got a lot of different programs, that info where there’s instructional work showing people how to recognize who they are, how to change their self image, how to change their paradigm, how to set proper goals, and then how to achieve goals. Setting goals and achieving goals are two different things. So I create a lot of programs. And I’ve been doing that for a long time. If
Jason Hartman 17:20
we were to sum up the you know, the the Bob Proctor ideology or philosophy? Is that possible to do? Can you kind of kind of do that just give us sort of the high level and then I want to dive into a lot of this stuff?
Bob Proctor 17:31
Well, I don’t really know if we can do that. I believe that we are God’s highest form of creation, I believe we’ve been given creative tools that we actually have failed to really understand and develop. And so I believe anyone can achieve anything that they can think. Solomon many, many centuries ago said that as a person they get in their heart. So are they we become what we think about all the great teachers have taught that. That’s the one point that all great leaders have agreed on, they’ve disagreed on virtually everything else, but they have agreed on that one point. And so that’s really what I teach people, I show them how to control their thinking, how to understand their mind, and how to make changes in their condition behavior.
Jason Hartman 18:25
Yeah, excellent stuff. You know, it all it all starts with those foundational things? Well, you know, we’re all given a set of circumstances and Voltaire likened life to a game of cards are saying something to the effect of we can’t choose the cards we’re dealt, but we must choose how to play those cards in order to win the game. And circumstances do not make the person do they. It’s controlling our thoughts and our own beliefs and self talk, isn’t it?
Bob Proctor 18:51
Yeah, what James Allen said that he says circumstance doesn’t make the manic reveal. They reveal him to himself, their circumstance, or the expression of what’s going on inside. He said, mind is the master power that molds and makes a man is mind. And evermore he takes the tool of thought and shaping what He wills bring forth. 1000 joys or 1000 meals, we think in secret, and it comes to the past environment is about our Looking Glass. That’s a difficult one to accept for a lot of people that their environment is they’re looking glass. It’s an expression of what’s going on inside.
Jason Hartman 19:29
You know, it’s not the other way around. Is it? So how do we how do we get control of our thoughts? I mean, some people really struggle with that, you know, you tell them think differently about this. But you know, it’s not just a matter of saying do that. Is it or is it that simple?
Bob Proctor 19:46
No, no, it’s not. It’s not it. Listen, there’s a very small percentage of the population who are in control of themselves. And yet that is one of the key things in life if people have learned how to take control of themselves. They could have anything they want in their life. And we’re not taught enough about ourselves, we’ve got to learn who we are and what we’re doing. And when we start to really understand that, then we’re in control. Napoleon Hill said, the person who masters himself through self discipline to never be mastered by others. While most people are mastered by something that’s going on outside, our thinking, really controls us. But our paradigm generally controls our thinking. We don’t think thoughts that cause a respectable amount of discomfort, we’re conditioned to live the way we live. And if that conditioning doesn’t change, the results don’t change. And they change the results, it causes a lot of discomfort. People have to understand that they have to understand what’s involved in changing the conditioning. that’s essential. That’s essentially what we teach Jason. Okay, so
Jason Hartman 21:01
I want you to drill down on that if you would explain the concept of paradigm for a moment, if you would,
Bob Proctor 21:07
well, a paradigm is nothing but a multitude of habits. And if you go back, how did you get here, you were conceived, you’re a little particle energy from Mama, little particle and of energy from your dad came together, and they became the nucleus of you. 290 days later, you made your debut on the planet. Now during that 280 days, you are developing, but you are developing from mom’s DNA and dad’s DNA. That’s called genetic conditioning. That’s why you look like your relatives. Then after birth, our subconscious mind is wide open, our subconscious mind has no ability to reject it links up to anything you give to it. And the subconscious mind was programmed by the people that surround you, with a product or an environment, we’ve heard that 1000 times. And that’s why if you were born in America, you probably grew up speaking English. Pardon me, if you were born in China, you probably grew up speaking Chinese. If you were taken out of your home, an English speaking home and put into a home in China, you would still grow up speaking Chinese and have no knowledge of the English language. If I had an associate over in Kuala Lumpur, he had a little boy at four years old could speak four languages fluently. And no one thought anything of it. Well, the paradigm is that conditioning, it’s all the conditioning, genetic and environmental that has come together. Our self image is formed before we can even develop the ability to think. And so all that conditioning is in our subconscious mind. 97% of the population goes through life, never changing it. If it’s changed, it’s changed very little. But no dramatic changes. Every now and then someone makes a huge change. I was one of those people. I didn’t have any idea what I was doing. But I wasn’t satisfied with the fact that I had made a huge change. at a particular point. I decided, I want to know, how did this happen? I was earning well over a million dollars a year. I had no formal education, too much high school, I had no business experience. I was running a company in seven cities in three countries. And I thought, you know, this doesn’t make sense. And so I started to study, I wanted to find out what happened. And since that’s what I was looking for, that’s what I found. seeking your find is good advice. Right? Yes. It’s
Jason Hartman 23:32
really amazing. And I love how you say that. All of all of the leaders from you know, every religion, they’ve all agreed on this thing that we become what we think about that as we think so shall we become. But we’ve got to figure out how to control those thoughts. So, you know, maybe a little more Bob on controlling those thoughts. But also, you know, once we know how to control them, we have the toolkit for controlling our thoughts. What should the thoughts be?
Bob Proctor 24:02
Well, first of all, they should be whatever you want them to be. We were given the ability to choose. J Martin Cooley wrote a marvelous book one time called your greatest power, and your greatest power is the ability to choose. But learning how to control them is a lifelong process. All of nature’s creatures respond to outside stimuli. We’re being bombarded with colors, with sounds with people with all kinds of stuff. Our sensory factors are picking all this up. That’s mental activity. Most people refer to that as thinking it’s not thinking at all, the average person doesn’t think Earl Nightingale used to say if the average person said what they were thinking they would be speechless. We have higher faculties. And Einstein put it very well. He said, the intuitive mind is a sacred gift. The rational mind is an obedient servant. We have created this society that is honored The servant and has forgotten the gift. We have never been taught how to utilize our higher faculties. We have perception, intuition, the will reason, imagination, and memory. And these higher faculties are what enable us to choose our thoughts to alter the course of our life to alter our life, to control our health, to control our wealth to control our race relationships. But we’re not taught how to utilize these marvelous tools in school. In fact, they discourage you from using them in many schools. When a child is preschool, their imagination is in high gear, they’ll sit and they’ll take the top off a potter something a little baby and turn it into something in their mind. We don’t know what it is. But they play with almost anything for imaginations at work, then they go to school. And it’s called not paying attention or daydreaming. And they’re punished. Well, pretty soon they stop using your imagination. And as a result, we got enormous corporations worldwide, with little tiny, creative departments. What they don’t understand is the whole company is a creative department. No one’s more creative than another, it’s just as some are utilizing more of their creative potential than another.
Jason Hartman 26:20
So So creativity in our culture, really, in many ways, has discouraged that but you know, Bob, in comparison, you know, I always like to say, compared to what, in comparison, when you look at, I think that’s one of the huge advantages of the United States and Canada, but the US has really got that like, rugged individual thing going on for them, right? Because that’s part of the founding, that’s the you know, about conquering the West, it’s the whole, it’s kind of part of the American ethic. In that there’s a there’s just a lot of creativity here, especially when you when you compare it especially to say China, for example, you know, very good at copying things very disciplined. But again, that the creativity, that’s where the money is, that’s where the, you know, it’s there’s just so much innovation, you know, you look at these tech companies, and, you know, you look at Uber and Lyft and Airbnb and you think, why did I think of that? You know, Facebook, I mean, those are simple ideas, relatively speaking. But again, when there was nothing to copy, you’d be pretty, pretty creative to come up with at it. It was it was a new paradigm, wasn’t it? Well, creativity is the opposite of routine. And you see, I think we go through phases, the internet, brought in enormous wave of creativity. It was the Wild West, it’s a new concept. And it’s really just moving into high gear. So
Bob Proctor 27:52
there’s, there’s always been a small group that have been very creative. They, they don’t follow routines, they make breakthroughs. They’re always interested in making something better. You see, I always say there’s no right way to do anything, it can be a good way. It can be a valid way. But there’s always a better way. And America does lead the world in that I think America is the greatest country in the world. And I think it is because of the inner innovative ways the entrepreneurial spirit. And I guess it goes back to how the country was originated, but
Bob Proctor 28:30
phenomenal opportunity for people.
Bob Proctor 28:34
But that creativity is only really exercised by a minority of the population where everyone could do it. I think our educational system has to change and change dramatically.
Jason Hartman 28:46
No, you’re you’re darn right about that. It’s a mess. I mean, for all the money we’ve thrown at it, it’s it’s still, it’s still a pretty lame thing.
Bob Proctor 28:54
Well, first of all, we don’t have an educational system. We have a system that helps people gather information, education, isn’t remembering things. It isn’t studying a book and coming up with answers. It’s it comes from the Latin you do co meaning to reduce, to develop or to grow from within. I think that amount of story put it best. She says that child is not like a cup, that you try and fill up with knowledge that the child is like a cup, that cup is full, what we want to do is bring it to the surface, all the knowledge, all the power that there ever was or ever will be is omnipresent. The way to do anything is already here. If you can think it, what you’ve done is Move your mind onto a frequency that exists on and then hold that image and you can actually cause it to manifest.
Jason Hartman 29:38
Yeah, very good point. Speaking of manifestation, it’s been maybe what 1516 years since the secret. We’d love to get your thoughts on, on on that, given that it’s been out there for so many years now.
Bob Proctor 29:51
It from 2006 it’s been nine years. And yet it was a phenomenal breakthrough. Rhonda Byrne did a tremendous job, it, it’s upwards of half a million, half a billion people, but it’s invaded. It’s just bombed their mind, and I think it woke the world up, I think it’s made a phenomenal difference. The Secret cause people to think, now there was a, I believe the secret led people in the wrong direction in one respect. It teaches you can have anything you want, you don’t get anything you want, you get anything that you internalize, you’ve got to take the one the ones in the conscious mind. And that’s not where the power is. The power is in the subconscious. That’s universal intelligence. And you’ve got to take that wand and deposit it in the treasury of your subconscious is William James from Harvard used to say, and when you’ve done that, you move yourself into a new vibration, you set up an attractive force, you move different, everything starts to happen. The Secret really lead people on to that it’s done a phenomenal job.
Jason Hartman 30:59
Yeah, it sure has, you know, Bob, but one of the I think the misnomers of the secret, or the way people have maybe misused the concept is,
Bob Proctor 31:09
you know, they’ve kind of sat back and think, well, if I just keep thinking this, it’s gonna just drop into my life without work, right? Do you want to kind of drill down on that concept a little bit? Absolutely. Listen, no amount of thinking, or memorizing is going to make a person successful in life. It’s the understanding and application of wise thoughts that count, you’ve got to move into action, you got to get out there and do it. You can sit and think until you’re an old old man or woman, and it’s not going to happen. You’ve got to internalize the thoughts, which produces the action she desire is nothing but an idea that has been turned into your emotional your subconscious mind, through repetition. It takes root, and it starts to grow. That the secret came from the book, the science of getting rich by Wallace wattles. In that book, he points out that desire is the effort of the unexpressed possibility within seeking expression without through your action. So you got to get got to build the desire, you got to get whatever it is you want. churning in your subconscious, you really got to get white hot with it. Yeah,
Jason Hartman 32:23
good point. Good point. Tell us a little bit about what you’re up to nowadays, your latest and greatest venture that you’re working on?
Bob Proctor 32:29
Well, I first of all, I’m building a studio, in my backyard, literally. And the studio is cutting edge, I’m going to be able to press a button and two cameras with 14 inch or 21 inch teleprompters on them come out of the ceiling. There’s a couple other cameras on tripods in there. It’s in a floating room, it’s soundproof, there’s a building within the building. And I am going to start pumping out a lot of great work, we’ll put a lot of stuff on YouTube, and I’m starting something called the inner circle. And the inner circle is going to be live, it’s going to be broadcast for two hours a week. Anyone can join it, it’s a membership site. So if there don’t happen to be there, when we’re broadcasting, they can tune into the recording of it. But I’m going to show people how we do what we do. We operate very fast, we have a phenomenal team of people. And we come up with an idea that ideas out to market within a week we we really move fast. We have a design team, we’ve got a marketing team, we just got a great group of people. And we work very fast, we’ll be talking about how I pre prioritize my day, what I’m doing that particular day, how I’m doing it, and projects that I’m working on how I do get them to market fast. While the show’s on, if I come up with a thought for a book before the show’s over, I would have the design of the cover of the book right there with me, it would be done. I’d have the design finished, we’d be able to put it up and show it to everybody. And we’d have the outline for the book done. This is all be done in two hours, there would be no hang around till it got ready. We would we’re going to show people how to do it. A lot of people want to know how do you do this? How do you do that? How do you spend your days? That’s what we’re gonna teach them?

Yeah, fantastic. Excellent, excellent stuff. Bob, you have some good content out there on how to find your purpose. And I think a lot of people struggle with that maybe they’ve they agree with and they’ve internalized the concepts you teach. And others have taught throughout history about, you know, everything that we’ve just discussed, whether it be goal setting, and you know, the controlling of the thoughts and the paradigm and so forth, but they don’t know where to go with it. Exactly. You know what they want in life. How can someone find their purpose,
Bob Proctor 34:50
you know, I think that’s probably one of the most important things in the world. Les Brown is a good friend of mine and he says something that I love and I’ve quoted him Many times, he said, the two most important days in your life are the day you’re born. And that day you discover why you’re born. A purpose is not something you decide on, it’s something you’ve discovered. Your purpose is why you get out of bed in the morning. Your purpose is why you’re living, why you’re here, I believe you and I, and everybody else is hard wired to do something exceptional. I think we’ve got enormous talent locked up within us. And if we don’t discover the purpose, it may never be expressed, it’ll just go to the grave in us. We’ve got to sit down and ask ourselves on a regular basis, I recommend the person take 1530 minutes, every day, until this is done. Get a notepad that has nothing in it. And don’t tear the page. And sit down, ask yourself, just go to a quiet place and said, What do I really love doing? What do I really love doing? I don’t care, but they can pies. What do you love doing? That’s what you should do. That’s where your purpose is. And make no mistake about it. If you’re doing what you’re love, you’ll do it very well. If you do very well, you’re going to do very well in your life. I was watching a woman one time on TV, she had been a dancer in a chorus line in Vegas. And she finally quit because she knew she wasn’t a good enough dancer to be a star. And she didn’t want to just stay in a chorus line. And she thought, what else and she loved that. What else do I love to do? I love to bake pastry. So she made up her mind, she was going to be a great pastry chef. And she moved to France. And she started to mentor under some of the great pastry chefs of the world. And now she is a great pastry chef, it was an interesting story. So you see, it might be to be a great pastry chef, it might be to be anything. But what do you love to do until you recognize that I don’t think you’re ever really going to feel fulfilled. And after you decide on your purpose, you decide what you love to do, your vision is how you’re going to do it. If you could visualize a funnel going right from your forehead going out and get wider. And it’s a vision, it’s a long range vision, it would be a multiplicity of goals. And they’re all on purpose, every one of them would be serving your purpose. So the vision is how you’re going to execute your purpose. And then your goal is taking a bite out of your vision, because you can only focus on one thing at a time. So you take the first thing out of the vision and say this I will do and you discipline yourself and you do it. Great point. Great point.

Before you go, Bob, give out your website, if you would. And then I’ve got another maybe two questions for you quickly, they can go to Proctor gallagher.com. Excellent. You talked a little bit about goals earlier at the beginning of the show. And then you just mentioned it again, some quick advice on goal setting, if you would, you said we can only really focus on one thing at a time
Bob Proctor 38:06
goals should be something you really want Jason, most people set goals to do what they think they can do, they’re playing it safe, they don’t want to fail. When you choose the right goal, you will not know how you’re going to do it. Steve Jobs did very well. He said you cannot connect the dots looking ahead, only looking back. So what you’ve got to do is what do I really want. And describe it in the present tense. I’m so happy and grateful now and describe the goal in the present tense. And then just keep thinking of how you can and the ideas will start to come to you in only
Jason Hartman 38:46
one goal at a time. Really, I mean, if you just one, if if you made a shopping list of all the things you want, the goal would be the one you want the most. You see it’s already here, it’s on a higher frequency. And what you’ve got to do is raise your conscious awareness to that frequency. But moving towards it, probably everything else on your list will fall into place as you go towards the thing you want. That is that is usually how it works and amazing level of synchronicity. But you know, just any closing remarks, any questions I didn’t ask you anything you want to share with the audience that we didn’t touch on during this talk.
Bob Proctor 39:24
There’s a quote that I love. It’s by Dean breaks. And if a person is struggling if they’re having a problem, this is a quote that I always play with. He said Do your work, not just your work and no more but a little more for the lavishing sake, that little more which is worth all the rest. And if you suffer as you must, and you doubt as you must do your work, put your heart into it, and the sky will clear and out of your very doden suffering will be born the supreme joy of life. When I’m faced with a challenge, that’s what I keep repeating Do your work, go to work, do your work, not just your work no more but a little more for the lavish and take. That’ll get a person through the hurdles.
Jason Hartman 40:07
That is some excellent, excellent advice, Bob Proctor. So nice to talk with you today. Keep up the good work on your part website, Proctor gallagher.com. Thanks again for joining us.
Bob Proctor 40:19
My pleasure. Thank you, Jason.
I’ve never really thought of Jason as subversive. But I just found out that’s what Wall Street considers him to be.
Really now How is that possible at all?
Simple. Wall Street believes that real estate investors are dangerous to their schemes? Because the dirty truth about income property is that it actually works in real life.
I know I mean, how many people do you know not including insiders, who created wealth with stocks, bonds and mutual funds? those options are for people who only want to pretend they’re getting ahead.
Stocks and other non direct traded assets are a losing game for most people. The typical scenario is you make a little you lose a little and spin your wheels for decades.
That’s because the corporate crooks running the stock and bond investing game will always see to it that they win. This means unless you’re one of them, you will not win.
And unluckily for wall street. Jason has a unique ability to make the everyday person understand investing the way it should be. He shows them a world where anything less than a 26% annual return is disappointing.
Yep. And that’s why Jason offers a one book set on creating wealth that comes with 20 digital download audios. He shows us how we can be excited about these scary times and exploit the incredible opportunities this present economy has afforded us.
We can pick local markets, untouched by the economic downturn, exploit packaged commodities investing and achieve exceptional returns safely and securely.
I like how he teaches you how to protect the equity in your home before it disappears and how to outsource your debt obligations to the government.
And this set of advanced strategies for wealth creation is being offered for only $197
