Bob Proctor discusses how results happen. He says there is a large group of people who believe that results just happen. But that is not the case. Results are the physical expression of what’s going on inside. If we let the outside control what’s going on inside, there’s going to be nothing but a repeat performance.
Bob has found that results always tell the truth. You can blame everything under the sun, but the results tell us what’s really going on. If you don’t like the results, you are the only one who can change them. So, take a close look at your results, and ask yourself, how do my results happen? If you’re going to change the results you’re getting, it’s absolutely essential you change your paradigm.
Bob shares a quote from a book saying, “There’s a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing until they believe that they can acquire it.” The state of mind must be belief, and not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential to belief. Closed minds will not inspire faith, courage, or belief. Remember, no more effort is required to aim high in life to demand abundance and prosperity than is required to accept misery and poverty. It’s clear most people don’t understand that. They struggle and struggle throughout their whole life, when with a lot less effort they could have gotten all the results they wanted.
There’s no point in struggling to try and change your results. Buckminster Fuller put it well when he said, “Never change things by fighting the existing reality…to change things, you’ve got to create a new program that makes the existing program obsolete.” You can create your own economy. There is a phenomenal power that flows to and through us. That’s what thoughts are made of. You can think anything you want, either positive or negative. Your thoughts affect your feelings, and your feelings are expressed with and through your body in your actions. The composite of all three—thoughts, feelings, and actions—are what produces results. And that composite is what we call attitude. Your attitude produces results.
