Bob Proctor “You Were Born Rich”: Book Review

Bob Proctor is featured in “The Secret” but he has been teaching wealth for a long time. I read his book “You Were Born Rich” and the following messages stood out.

  •          Prosperity consciousness. Identify how you really feel about money. Look at the words you use, how your parents brought you up, what you think rich people are like. Look at the results your attitudes have brought you so far. You need to change your thoughts about money if you are to change your life. Abundance is in your thoughts (you were born with this wealth). You cannot have physical wealth until it exists in your mind.

“I dream my painting, and then I paint my dream” Vincent Van Gogh


  •          “Remove the lid from your marvellous mind with respect to your own earning ability.” Understand that you don’t need to know how it will happen. You need to see the idea you want to make happen, regardless of whether you think earning that much is a “reality”. If you continue to think you can only earn $50,000, then that is all you will earn. If you set your goal much higher, you remove the limits in your head, and that will reflect in your life.
  •          The seed planted will grow in time. Don’t keep changing your mind about what you want. Keep focussing and putting your energy into it and it will come to fruition.
  •          Start now. Don’t put off the changes until you “have the time” or “have the money”. You will not have either unless you make the time.


  •          Specific wealth recommendations.   Set up a savings account. Get life insurance. Pay yourself first (10%). Set up orderly debt repayment.


  •          Money must circulate, it needs to flow. To you, and from you. Love people and use money. The “vacuum law of prosperity” means that you have to make room in your life for the new by getting rid of the old. Give of yourself and your money, and it will come back to you. Let go of old ideas, and pick up new ones.


  •          Persistence. Belief that whatever needs to happen to help you get there will happen. Persist even when people think you are crazy or misled. Success often happens one step beyond failure.


  •          Take more risks towards the goal you want. “What is the razor’s edge for you – the one step every day that will get you closer to where you want to be? To make you better than you are today?”
