Bob Proctor and Decision Making
There is a short piece on decisions from Bob Proctor that we think is especially valuable. It will ring as true by those who have been practicing the Law of Attraction for a while, and will help those who are just getting started.
As Proctor quips, "James Allen may have been thinking of decisions when he wrote, 'We think in secret and it comes to pass. Environment is but our looking glass.'"
Bob Proctor does not coddle the timid. He expects adults to be able to make decisions based on whatever information you have at hand at the time. And, we know from all the teachers that the first step in mastering the Law of Attraction is to make a decision about what you want, and then to form a clear picture of already having it. -- If you can't make a decision about what you want you can't be successful at manifesting money....
Proctor tells the story of John Kennedy asking Werner Von Braun what it would take to build a rocket that could take a man to the moon, and the answer was "The will to do it." As Proctor reemphasizes in another tale, "all the money in the world is available to you once you firmly decide to do something."
We become what we think about, or as Dooley says, "Thoughts become things." So, whether you are in control of your decisions or not, they will come to pass. When you make a decision to watch TV rather than reading a good book, and when you make a decision to buy the pizza rather than going home to make the salad, and when you make the decision to put your children in front of the TV so that you can fold the clothes, rather than taking them on an adventure, you are making small, incremental decisions that are affecting your future and limiting or increasing our efforts at manifesting money or anything else we want in life.
If, on the other hand, you make a firm decision to provide, for example, the best education that is available for your children, you will find a way to make this happen even if you don't see the way at the time of the decision. And then, every inspiration of a move to action must be followed. Remember, you have to be more and do more to have more.
Dr. Abraham Maslow who spent his life studying "self actualized" people, said that self actualized people did work that they thought was important and enjoyed, so that there was little distinction between work and play.
(James Arthur Ray
spends time on this as well, in his new book.) And, they did it well. Finally, they had values that they had chosen, rather than values that had been imposed on them.
Bob Proctor points out that life is short. It can be wonderful if we have the courage and the self esteem to make our own decisions purposefully, rather than following the masses.
Remember that every decision counts when manifesting money. Every decision will move you forward or will move you away from your dreams.
As Bob Proctor quotes Thomas Edison “If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” And, Bob adds, "By making a simple decision, the greatest minds of the past are available to you. You can literally learn how to turn your wildest dreams for manifesting money into reality. Put this valuable information to use and recognize the greatness which exists within you. You have limitless resources of potential and ability waiting to be developed. Start today - there’s never any time better than the present. Be all that you are capable of being."
The first decision might be to make all your decisions count!
