Hello there and welcome, I’m Bob Proctor. I’ve got something here I
think you’re going to like. I spent five years working
with Earl Nightingale, he was considered the Dean
of personal motivation, he’s been gone since 1989 God bless him, but he helped a lot of people. He was the most listened
to man in the history of the broadcasting industry for a number of years. But working with Earl
was a great experience, he was a wonderful mentor. He taught me one thing, he said, “Bob, the first
five or ten minutes “of any day is probably going
to dictate what your day’s going to be like.” D’you know I thought about that
and I found out he’s right, that’s a very important time for me, the first five or ten minutes of a day. I have an idea that I
think you can benefit from following Earl’s advice. Just watch this for a second. Welcome back to Six
Minutes and today’s idea is worth its weight in
gold without question. Habits. Good habits will give
you results that stick, bad habits will destroy everything. This is Bob Proctor, and I’m going to be one
of the first to admit I have some bad habits. That’s right, all my habits are not great, so if you’ve got some bad
habits don’t feel bad, so does your next door neighbor. So does your mentor, your coach. So does your mother and
father if they’re alive. So does everyone. And the trick of life is
to replace a bad habit with a good habit. I used to hang around bars all the time, and one day I went in, I picked up a glass and I looked around and I thought, “They’re all bums in here.” And then it dawned on
me, “I’m always here.” I learned something, I put the glass down and I said “I’m never coming here again “and I’m never going to drink this,” and I never did. That was a long time ago
but you know what I did? I went from spending
all my money in the bar to the racetrack and I started
to bet it all on horses. So I went from making somebody
with a bar get wealthy and then I started to feed the horses. And one day I woke up
and I learned something. If you don’t consciously
and deliberate replace a bad habit with a good habit, you will automatically
create another bad habit. Now what is a habit? A habit is an idea that has been planted in the garden of your subconscious mind and then repetitively fed for
a sufficient period of time that you act on it without
giving any thought to it. I’ll give you an example. I want you to right now mentally imagine you’re pulling on your
underwear in the morning. What foot do you put in first? I put my right foot in, if I tried to put my left
foot in my underwear first I’d stagger and I’d fall over. You may say, “What’s
this got to do with it?” It’s got everything to do with it. Why do I put my right foot? You may put your left,
certainly a lot of people do. Well when I was just a little gaffer, didn’t have a clue of
how to put underwear on, my mother or my grandmother
or my father or somebody came along and had the underwear out, “Put your foot in here! “Your other foot!” What did they do? They had the underwear prepared as if they were going to put it on. So pretty soon I was doing
it like they were doing it. They, through repetition,
planted the idea in my mind. Well now think of this. You don’t just form habits
of how to get dressed. You form habits to do
everything that you do, and some of them are not that productive. Any idea that you keep dwelling on and impressing upon your subconscious mind becomes fixed in the subconscious mind. A habit is nothing but an idea that’s fixed in the subconscious mind that you act on without
giving any conscious thought. Many years ago I went in to train the The Prudential
Insurance Company of America their agents. I ended up training all of their agents. And I only got them to do two things, this is in the early 70s. I got them to form the habit of being in front of a prospect before 9am and ask everybody they talked to to purchase $100,000 worth of insurance. I said, “You don’t have to sell them, “just give them the
opportunity to say no.” Do you know that sales
in that company went up by hundreds of millions of dollars? I had a retired VP tell me
he thought it was a billion. Just changing two habits. What habit do you want to change? I’m forever checking out habits I’ve got. I’m in the habit right
now of changing my diet. And d’you know something? I’ve been doing it for
going on three weeks. It’s getting easier but
it’s still not that easy. I still like to reach
over and eat some of that when nobody’s looking. Doesn’t work, doesn’t work. I’m looking. What habit are you going to form? And you shouldn’t try to
form more than two at once, it’ll become too big and too heavy and you won’t form any. Make up your mind you’re going to do it, every day, every day, every day. Until you don’t have to think about it and then you’ll automatically do it. I guarantee you this idea
will change your life. Think about it all day because that is definitely
an idea that will give you results that will stick. This is Bob Proctor and thank you. Well there you go, what you just saw was a clip
