What is a Successful Mindset?
The best way to understand Mindset is to first understand exactly what a 'Successful Mindset' actually is.
TOP MINDSET MENTORING TIP
"A Successful Mindset is INTENTIONALLY and CONSISTENTLY FOCUSED, with a BURNING DESIRE, on a CHOSEN thought or group of thoughts, that are bound to a CLEARLY stated Goal OR Outcome. This Mindset is CONTROLLED, DIRECTED and DRIVEN by the IMMENSE and HARNESSED ENERGY of the COMPLETELY GOAL ALIGNED Conscious andNigel Brennan, Founder/CEO at mindsetmentoring.com
Focus is a process that you can learn by first understanding that YOUR Mind is actually a Focusing Mechanism.
Think about that for a moment. Your mind has all the attributes of a laser like focusing mechanism.
Then we need to ask ourselves, what is the primary source of information or raw data that our mind is accustomed to focusing on? The answer is of course our thoughts. These thoughts can be 'Positive' or they can be 'Negative'. Okay, now what?
Here is where it starts to get interesting.
We can actively 'choose' what thoughts we actively think and what thoughts we decide to focus on.
Okay, well if it was that easy, wouldn't everyone just have 'Positive' thoughts and their lives would be all shiny and rosy?
Not quite. Here's why.
Consistency of Focus
The 'Consistency of our Focus' on a particular thought, goal or outcome is EVERYTHING. This is what separates those who live their lives the way they want and those who do not.
It is all about focusing on what you want, consistently. Which brings me back to the original point. The mind is a focusing mechanism that when understood and used correctly, WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE.
This is 'The Secret' of all successful people. Their ability to focus. Consistently. They literally Create their own reality through the process of 'focusing consistently' on the outcome they are looking to create.
Abraham Lincoln put it well when he said, "The best way to predict your future is to create it."
It is also true, that the best place to hide something truly special, is in full view of everyone.
Which brings me to the book, 'You Were Born Rich' by Bob Proctor, Star of the Phenomenal Hit Movie, 'The Secret'.
'You Were Born Rich' is a GUIDE that will teach you HOW to focus consistently.
Let's get started.
'You Were Born Rich' by Bob Proctor
'You Were Born Rich' is an International Bestseller by Bob Proctor. Bob is rightly regarded as the 'Mentor of Mentors' because of his ability to teach in a very clear and straightforward manner. This is a key part of his genius and is one of the key reasons why he is so sought after, by so many people, all over the world. Bob's ability to communicate Life changing ideas and concepts is legendary. In this blueprint for Successful Living 'You Were Born Rich', Bob outlines, in clear and easy to understand language, the steps which he used to go from being broke to being regarded as a global expert in Mindset and the 'Art of getting what you want'.
Power of the Mind
Bob's story alone, is a phenomenal read. HOW he actually began to understand the power of his mind and then use this information to completely change his life, is even more astonishing. He couldn't even read. As he said himself, "I was going downhill fast and picking up speed."
In this book, you will learn HOW to use the information that Bob learned to make him a global success, in your own life.
Sandy Gallagher is the President, CEO and Co-Founder of the Proctor Gallagher Institute.
In the introduction, Sandy explains the importance of this book and how she came to meet Bob Proctor.
"If you are looking for something new in life, something more fulfilling, exciting or a new path to travel on, you just found it. Sit back, relax and don't lay this book down until you're finished. It has a magical quality about it.
Permit me to briefly share my experience with Bob Proctor and the information he shares. In August of 2006, I walked into a seminar in Vancouver, Washington and my life began to move in a totally different direction.
For the prior twenty years, I had operated a very successful legal practice. Little did I realize that the information I was receiving in that seminar would cause me to close my practice, leave the law profession and begin a totally new career.
The information that would cause me to make such a radical shift is the information that you are holding in your hands."
Sandy was so astonished by what Bob had to teach, that she closed her highly successful Law Practice and joined with Bob to create the magnificent 'Proctor Gallagher Institute (PGI). Today, PGI with both Bob Proctor and Sandy Gallagher at the helm, is a world leader in both Personal Development and Growth and Business Development for companies of all sizes ranging from Entrepreneurs to large Corporations.
Sandy goes on to explain their first meeting. "Bob Proctor was conducting the seminar that I attended and from the front of the room he was firing ideas at a rapid clip - ideas that were taking us on a journey and we were traveling in the opposite direction to the one I had been following my entire life.
Through my formal educational years and my entire professional career, I was on an orthodox path that ninety some percentage of our population follows their entire life. And among that group, I was at the top of the class, enjoying what most people regard as real success. However, as I followed Proctor on his trail of ideas, I began to feel as if I'd been living in a prison my entire life and I was finally beginning to experience freedom.
These next few words echoed in my mind over and over again in the coming days — he said,
"Most people are extras in their own movie."
I realized I wasn't the star of my movie at all. I was really an extra. Someone else was always the star, and I was forever trying to please them, trying to measure up to what I thought their standard was, never performing at a level that I believed they considered acceptable.
I was forty-three years old and I had been doing what I thought other people thought I should be doing with my life. While I sat in that seminar, I took many of the ideas that you are about to explore and permitted them to activate my imagination. I began to dream of what my life would be like if I would just follow my own path, do my thing, and do it to the best of my ability every day.
I was getting excited. I can promise you if you will permit yourself to get emotionally involved with the ideas that you are about to read, you will get excited. I mean really excited, dreaming of what you are capable of doing.
It was in that seminar that I became acutely aware we are "Born Rich". You are, I am and so is everyone else. However, by following someone else's path, we squander those riches. We never truly develop them and become the person we were meant to become.
You are about to experience a feeling of tremendous power. It will flow into your brain. It will change how you feel. It will change how you act. It will totally and completely shift your perception of life.
Bob Proctor has done a magnificent job laying out the chapters in this book from the beginning to the end, like an easy to read map that will guide you from where you stand right now to any destination of your choice."
Sandy continues with a more detailed description of what you can expect.
"By letting the ideas in this book fill your consciousness, your life will instantly become a fascinating journey. But that journey is not going to begin as if you're walking through a beautiful flower garden. When you lay this book down you'll be confronted by construction sites, detours and potholes—in other words, a respectable amount of resistance from virtually everyone you know.
I am speaking from experience. This is not something I've imagined. As you begin to live your dream, you must keep in mind, you are moving in the opposite direction to that which you have been conditioned to follow.
On the Korean Memorial wall in Washington, D.C., in bold letters, these words are engraved "Freedom is not free." If you're going to live your life, the way you want to live, understand the price is high. It does not come easy. However, the rewards are phenomenal. They are rewards that only a very small, select group of people ever collect. I enjoy those rewards today. I enjoy mixing with people on a daily basis who also enjoy them. You see, the beautiful truth is, that when we begin to experience freedom, we attract into our life other people who are also enjoying freedom.
Yes, the rewards are tremendous and they're there for everyone. Make a decision right now that you will read and re-read this book until you are well-established and very familiar with the path that Bob Proctor has laid out for us here.
As you become comfortable on your journey, remember the lessons that are taught in the lyrics of a great song written by Oscar Hammerstein II, "A bell's not a bell 'til you ring it, A song's not a song 'til you sing it, Love in your heart wasn't put there to stay, Love isn't love 'til you give it away!"
As you begin to live with these beautiful ideas, you'll only truly enjoy them as you begin to share them.
The destination I established prior to that seminar ending was that I would be part of the inside circle of Bob Proctor's company and marvelous things have happened since I set that goal.
Today I am the President & CEO of Bob Proctor's group of companies, operating in 89 countries, scouting new trails every day.

Earl Nightingale was Bob Proctors Mentor. Earl was a Mentee of Napoleon Hill, the author of 'Think and Grow Rich', the Phenomenal International Bestseller responsible for much of the Personal Growth and Self-Development Industry that we are all so familiar with today.
Napoleon Hill was of course the Mentee of Andrew Carnegie, the great Industrialist, who is responsible for sharing this incredible information about HOW to be successful, through Napoleon Hill's writings.

"Taking Action is the Real Key to Success. Developing the 'Habit of Action' is the Fuel that Drives the Momentum of a Life Defined by Success."
The key to understanding your life and where you are right now, is locked up in your subconscious mind.
This is where the 'magic' is stored. This is what Dr. Bruce Lipton, one of the founders of Epigenetics meant, when he said,
"Your Life is A Printout of your Subconscious Programming."
- Dr. Bruce Lipton
When you finally understand this, all things are possible. The doors within your mind become gateways to be opened and explored as you venture into a new and exhilarating future!
This 'Subconscious Programming' is called a 'Paradigm'. I dive into Paradigms and explore this fascinating world and their impact on our lives in my blog post entitled 'Start a New Life by Understanding you are already perfect'.
Now for some really exciting news on Paradigms and your Subconscious Programming. You can change or upgrade your internal operating system or paradigm, just like you do when upgrading to the latest version of your mobile phones operating system. You can do this by accessing your own internal belief system or Paradigm that resides in your subconscious mind. You have the ability to chart a new course in life in order to reflect a 'New Direction' you would like to take.
This is 'The Secret' to success in Life. Learning how to reprogram your subconscious mind and then aligning your subconscious mind with your conscious mind, in order to FOCUS on the goal that you wish to attain or the life you wish to lead. This is the Essence of Success.
'You Were Born Rich' by Bob Proctor, is a Blueprint for a life changing New Mindset which is often required in order to change and transform your own life. You may then have the opportunity to impact the world around you, in a more meaningful way.
What is even better is the fact that you will learn the foundational tools, a 'Blueprint' if you will, for living a Successful Life.
The information which will be given to you in this book, is responsible for generating real astonishing wealth for both individuals and companies. Use it wisely.
I suggest you read one chapter a week (or one chapter a day whichever is more suitable for you) in order to allow the words to fully soak into your subconscious. Introduce Repetition as a mode of learning. This will involve reading and rereading paragraphs or sections until you fully understand and integrate the information. This is KEY. Then teach this technique of learning to your Daughters, Sons, Sisters, Brothers or your Nieces and Nephews. The impact this will have on their ability to learn and on their lives in general, will be profound.

Introduce Repetition into your Personal Learning Process as it is The NUMBER 1 Strategy for Learning and Integrating NEW Information. It will Literally CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
In this blueprint, 'You Were Born Rich', Bob Proctor outlines, in clear and easy to understand language, the steps which he used to go from being broke to being regarded as a global expert in Mindset and the 'Art of getting what you want'.
"Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment."
— Zig Ziglar
Bob Proctor himself say's the following about the use of repetition in learning.
"Repetition is exposing yourself to a new idea over and over again. The point of repetition is not to memorize information, but rather to impress the idea or image into your subconscious or emotional mind enough times that it replaces the old idea or paradigm that resides there."
Success, Repetition and Paradigms
Bob Proctor talks more about this topic in his Blog Post 'Success, Repetition and Paradigms'
"Consciously entertaining an idea—in this case, your goal—is easy.
Emotionalizing the idea so that it gets planted in the subconscious mind is anything but easy because your paradigm is deeply rooted in you. It has been running the show for a long time, and it does not want to change.
Let's say your goal is to lose 30 pounds in a year. That's a worthy ideal; however, your paradigm wants you to stay just the way you are.
The paradigm doesn't want to lose the weight, so it's prepared to throw up roadblocks to keep you at or near your current weight.
When you start snacking on carrot sticks and hitting the gym, your paradigm fights back with statements like, "Come on… one piece of bread isn't going to hurt you" or "You've got too much to do to go to the gym. You can go later."
So, you must keep repeating your goal and impressing the image of the slimmer you over and over until it starts to take hold in your subconscious mind.
That's because initially, the image is weak because it's only in your conscious mind. It's like a little sapling planted there. Repetition works to loosen the soil of the conscious mind and allow the new image to take root in the subconscious mind.
The more you impress the image into your emotional mind, the stronger it becomes. Eventually, the old image (the paradigm) weakens, and the new one replaces it, and you move into the vibration that the image creates.
When that happens, you are in resonance with being—and remaining—30 pounds lighter, and you will reach your goal."
If you understand the importance of what you are reading here from Bob, you have taken the first step to creating a new life or at the very least, improving dramatically the life you are currently living.
"Those who know the truth learn to love it. Those who love the truth learn to live it." Bob Proctor.
