Be in Business FOR Yourself but not BY Yourself

Be in Business FOR Yourself but not BY Yourself

– Hello there and welcome. I’m Bob Proctor. I’m going to share something with you that could change the course of your life. It could make everything so much better. To do this, to explain it properly, I’m going to tell you a little story. It goes way back 57 years. A man gave me this book. He said “Bob, do exactly what I tell you and you can have anything you want.” Now, when he said that I was flat broke. I had $6,000 dollars in debt and I was only earning
$4,000 dollars a year. The prospect of things getting
better were pretty slim. I’d two months high
school formal education. I had absolutely no business experience. I was not in a good spot. But he said “Listen they’re all reasons why you can’t win, Bob” He said, “If you do what I
tell ya and study this book, ‘you’re going to figure out how you can”. Now this is Napoleon Hill’s’ book, Think and Grow Rich. He spent his whole life studying 500 of the world’s most successful individuals and he found there was a golden thread running through their life. And that’s what’s in this book. I’ve never stopped reading it. I then found a condensed
narration of the book by Earl Nightingale. Where Earl took and he
condensed the whole thing and he put it on a long playing record. And I would listen to
that and listen to it and listen to it. In fact, I had started my own company and I used to play the records to the sales people every morning. Well, one morning, it was very early. Just finished the sales meeting and just finished playing Earl’s record and I said at the end of the meeting, I said, man I’d really love to meet him. One of the sales people
said, no you wouldn’t. I said what do you mean I wouldn’t? He said if you really wanted to meet him, you’d go and meet him. And I thought, you know something? You’re right. I get on the phone and
I got an appointment with Earl Nightingale. Now that wasn’t an easy thing to do. Earl was the most listened
to man in the history of the broadcasting industry at the time. Earl Nightingale and Lloyd Conant started the Nightingale-Conant corporation, who’d literally started the
personal development business as we know it today, in recorded fashion. He was considered the Dean
of personal motivation. There was probably a
couple of million people that would have loved
to sat down with him. But I got the appointment. At the end of the meeting, I
had a wonderful time there. When I was leaving I said,
Earl, what is the big deal? What is the real secret of
life to making things happen? Well, he said there isn’t
any secret to success, Bob. He said it’s a simple
matter of figuring out what you absolutely love to do and then make a decision to
dedicate your life to it. Then everyday you’re going to
be doing what you love to do. So the problem with most
people is, they never decide what they love to do and
they don’t make a decision to dedicate their life to anything. They just go from one thing to the next. Well, I’m going to tell you, I had a feeling come over me right then that I’ve never felt since and I never had before. At that moment, everything in me changed. We talk about vibration, my
energy shifted just like that. Because I knew exactly what I wanted to do and I knew what I loved doing. I wanted to do what he was doing. And I wanted to do it with him. Now this was a preposterous
idea, but that’s what I wanted. They had a program, was a
distributor, a consulting program. They would bring people in
and train them and teach them how to mentor, how to
coach, how to consult with this kind of information. Literally how to change people’s lives. I went to a meeting that was being held by the Nightingale-Conant
Corporation in Montreal in Canada. And they explained exactly
how the business works. I sat there and I thought this is
almost too good to be true. But I became a distributor
at Nightingale-Conant or a consultant at
Nightingale-Conant corporation. That wasn’t what I wanted. I wanted to work right with Earl. And I determined the best way to do that is get them to pay attention to me. So I thought I’m going to
learn how to sell this stuff and I’m going to sell
more than anybody else. Now, I didn’t even know how
to sell very well at all. But that’s what I did. And I’m going to a tell
you, when I started in, I was rather shy, I was quiet. I had had a respectable amount
of success at that time. In fact I had a very successful company. We were operating in Toronto, Montreal, Boston, Cleveland, Atlanta
and London England. So I mean I wasn’t
looking for things to do, I was very busy, I was
earning a lot of money, but I wasn’t doing what
I really wanted to do. I wanted to do what Earl was doing. And so, I, got out of
the company that I had, and I went to work there. It was just a rich rewarding experience. And it gave me the opportunity
to do what he was doing. I began coaching people. I began doing public speaking. Something that was the
furthest thing from my mind. But talking about these great ideas. They have literally changed my life. When I figured out exactly
what was happening in my life all I wanted to do was
teach it to other people. I came to the conclusion that
if a person wants to win, they need a very good coach. They need a mentor. I see a mentor as a person
that can transfer the energy from their mind to the mentee’s mind. They can take all the things for success and give it to the other person. And we call that coaching
today, or mentoring. I found that coaching people
is the most rewarding thing you can do. Helping people find a track
to run on in their life. How to live the way they
really want to live. It is absolutely incredible. And that’s how I started as a consultant. As a distributor of Earl
Nightingale’s programs. That was in 1965. You know, in 1968, my office
was just about ten feet from his office. And I was his vice president of sales. Now that didn’t happen just like that. I had to make a lot of things
happen for that to happen. But that’s where I ended up. I ended up working right
with Earl Nightingale. A number of years later,
I was sitting in a den, in my home on Maplewood
lane in Glenview, Illinois. And I took my pen and I wrote down that I was going to build a company that operated all over the world. I was going to share this information that I had been learning and working with and I
was going to make certain that I would get as many
people as possible involved in this information. I wanted the whole world to
know what I was learning. I was experiencing something in life that most people never experience. I was spending my days doing
what I absolutely loved. Sitting down with individuals
and provoking them to think and think
about what they’re doing and how they’re living
and what they’re earning. Most people are not living
the way they want to live. You’re probably not living
the way you want to live. But you can. You see we are God’s
highest form of creation. There’s nothing on the planet that will even come close to us. Do you know that you and
I are the only creature on the planet, that’s totally disoriented in their environment? All the other little creatures
are completely at home in their environment, they blend in. We’re totally disoriented, because we’ve been given
the mental faculties to create our own environment. The problem is, school
never teaches us that. We don’t learn it at home. Most people never learn, they can literally create
their own environment. We can create our own economy. We don’t learn that. It’s missing in our educational system. The Proctor Gallagher
Institute is dedicated to waking the world up. We’ve been in this
business now for 57 years. And we’re very good at it. We’ve been at it longer
than anybody else, I believe in the industry today. Here a few years ago, I made up my mind, I was going to do what
Earl Nightingale had done. And so we started a consulting program here at the Proctor Gallagher Institute. And we take people and we train them how to do what I’m doing. D’you see, I know there’s a
lot of people come up to me in a seminar and they say, I’d love to do what you’re doing. Well, you can. I’m looking for people that was like I was back in 1965, I wanted to do what Earl Nightingale was doing. If you’d like to do what I’m doing, I’m want to talk to you. I want to sit down with you. I want to show you how
you can do what I’m doing. You see, this business I’m in, is the most incredible business
that anyone will ever find. I have found there’s two
forms of income in life. One is psychic, the psychic income and that’s
the satisfaction we get from how we spend our days. The other is our material
income, the money we earn. And it’s the money we earn that permits us to do the things we want to
do and go where we want to go and live the way we really want to live. So if a person is living the
way they really want to live, I believe they need an abundance
of both sources of income. They need a lot of money,
because it costs a lot of money to live today. And they need a lot of satisfaction. Well, d’you know, I don’t
know any way you can get more satisfaction than
you can by sitting down and helping another person figure out exactly what they want to do and then share the information with them that gives them the
courage and the confidence and the calmness in their
character to step out and do what they really want to do. Now, if that appeals to you, I want to talk to you. I want you to talk to our company. I want you to take a
look at the opportunity that we’ve created here at the
Proctor Gallagher Institute. I want you to listen really carefully because this is the highest
paid profession in the world. What I am doing, what I’m suggesting you
take a look at doing is the highest paid
profession in the world. And I say that, based on something Earl
Nightingale taught me, oh so many years ago. He said, Bob, compensation,
the reward we receive for the service we rendered is
governed by an absolute law. And he said, there’s
three parts to this law. I want you to study it and
then I want you to live by it. Well, my ears were open. I was available, I wanted
to know what it was. He said the law of compensation is clear. It states the amount of
money you earn is going to be in exact ratio to the
need for what you do, your ability to do it and
the difficulty there is in replacing you. Well I want you to stop and think of just how much the world needs someone to show people how to live they way
they really want to live. 90 Some percent of our
population are lost. We have people graduating
from universities all over the world, with degrees coming right off
the end of their business card and they can’t even find work. They don’t understand that they
could literally create work. But they don’t know that
and they don’t even know they don’t know. We find people that have
doctorates and masters in business, administration
and they’re broke. There’s something wrong. About 3% of the population
are really living the way they want. 90 Some percent are not. There is a screaming need
for this all over the world. Everywhere we go,
there’s a tremendous need for someone that can sit
down and explain to a person how to take a pen and
decree your own destiny. That’s what we do. That’s what I’m suggesting you look at. Number two, your ability to do it. How good are you at it? I’m very good at it. I’m not much good at anything else, but I don’t want to do anything else. I’ve spent my whole adult
life, preparing myself to sit down and help people learn to live the way, Earl
Nightingale taught me to live. Living the good life. Now the person that
becomes very good at that. They can write their own ticket. The can sit and literally
write their own ticket. We’ve got a great company
and we’ve got a phenomenal, ongoing, never-ending training program. You see if you are decided that
you wanted to work with us, do what I’m doing, do what we do, we want to train you. We have some of the most
effective people in the world in this industry at the
Proctor Gallagher Institute. You would be getting training
that’s second to none. We would show you how to fill
that need very very well. It’s the need for what you do, your ability to do it. We’ll show you how to master it. You’ll have the strength of a company that’s been in business for over 50 years. All over the world. It doesn’t matter where you live. We work there. If you will join us
and do what we suggest, we’re going to show you how
to become very effective. And when you do, the third part of this law of
compensation’s taken care of. It’ll be very difficult to replace you. See, the people that are
difficult to replace, their stock goes up. Just think about it for a moment. If you’ve got somebody that’s
very good at doing something, they become very difficult to replace. So listen again. Number one, the amount of money you earn
is always in direct ratio to the need for what you
do, your ability to do it and the difficulty there
is in replacing you. This is the highest paid
profession in the world. Bar none. Now if you really want
to change your life, if you really want to change things and you want to have fun doing it, and you really want to feel
good about what you’re doing everyday, you’ve got to
sit down and talk to us. We will explain how this works. The Proctor Gallagher Institute, is a phenomenal organization. Sandy Gallagher, who
is my business partner, is a brilliant woman. She saw this as an opportunity and she became a
consultant with our company about 10 years ago. She bought everything we had. She studied all of our programs and then she decided
this is what I want to do for the rest of my life and
she was a very successful, Security’s attorney. She graduated university, many years ago as the number one banking
lawyer in all universities in the United States. Then of course she worked
with one of the top firms on Wall Street and then moved to Seattle where she was from and became a partner in a big law firm there. But she decided she was
going to leave that, she was going to do this. Now, she’s my business partner today. Brilliant woman. We’ve retracted some of the
best people in the world. You’re going to love the
people in this company. I have never worked with such
a skilled beautiful group of people as I am today. And they’re the people
you’d be working with. You see as a consultant with
the Proctor Gallagher Institute you’d be working for
yourself, but not by yourself. We’re all here to support you. You’re there to support us. We work together, it’s like a family. We have the best information
you’re going to find anywhere in the world for a person to live the way
they really want to live. It all goes back to that
meeting I had with Earl. He said, Bob, the idea’s simple. Decide what you love to do, then dedicate your life to it. If you would love really helping people, if you would love showing
people how to clear up all the problems in their
life and cut a clear path to living the life they want,
we can show you how to do it. It is absolutely incredible, it’s a great business. If this really appeals
to you or you think, gosh this sounds pretty interesting. I want you to take a
look at the opportunity that we’ve created here at the
Proctor Gallagher Institute. You’re under no obligation. It’s just to lay out this as
a great business opportunity. We will answer all the questions you have, then you’ll be in a position to decide, is this really what you would like to do? I guarantee you, if you’re
inclined to want to help people, you don’t have to look any further. You have found the right place, because that’s what we do. And we’ve got a group of professionals that are doing it. There’s men and women
that are involved in this, that just absolutely
love what they’re doing. That’s the way you want to live. That’s the way I’ve been living. I’ve had a very rich,
rewarding life, I really have. You can too. I think it’s one of the
greatest business opportunities there ever was come down the road. I saw it myself way back in the 60’s and I decided to duplicate what Earl Nightingale
and Lloyd Conant had done and that’s what we’ve done. The Proctor Gallagher Institute
today stands way up there. One of the top companies in this industry. We help thousands and
literally millions of people all over the world. We would like you to join us. Leave your information, come
and let us explain this to you. You’ll be glad you did. It’s Bob Proctor, thank you.
