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 from Six Minutes to Success,

it's a video.

You see I believe Earl Nightingale was right,

in fact I've followed his advice now for many, many years,

it's helped me earn millions of dollars

and build a company that operates all over the world.

We've got a super affordable idea for you.

And we're going to let you try this for two weeks

for one dollar.

You can't miss with it.
