What Bob Proctor Told Me In My 20's That Changed My Life...
When I was in my 20's, the legendary Bob Proctor asked me to go to his house in Toronto so we could work on our "Expression of Your Power" program together.
I asked, "Why?"
He said, "Because you need to see what rich people live like."
I'm like, "What?" I said, "I don't need to go to your home."
He said, "You're flying. You're doing it this weekend."
I'll never forget it.
Mind you, back then I was a know-it-all 20-something who was comfortable just skiing all the time, working her W-2 job while doing this entrepreneurship thing as a 'side gig,' thinking you had to work really hard to make money, and playing small ball.
I got on a plane because you just do what your mentors say.
Of course, I had every excuse why I shouldn't or couldn't and I needed to ski or whatever, probably like you guys have excuses.
I got on a plane, flew to Toronto, and we hung out in his house.
When I walked in to his home, my jaw literally dropped.
He had maids running around, people with dry cleaning, his personal chef brought us food, people washing clothes, people scheduling calls – people doing small tasks for him so he could focus all of his energy on growing his empire.
I thought, "Oh, my God."
He said, "Do you realize what's happening?"
He said, "You stay focused, compartmentalized, and absolutely intent making money to pay for all this."
He said, "Because if you're running around scattered doing all of these things, you are never focused enough to ever get anything done properly."
This blew my mind. I had never seen this before.
He told me having his team do small tasks was not out of arrogance, but out of necessity. He needed these people around him so he could dedicate 100% of himself to growing.
Bob's mission of personal development for people around the world was greater than him doing dishes himself, or cleaning his own house, or washing his car, or getting himself coffee...
Seeing this firsthand changed my life.
It made me believe in creating a similar system like this for myself – so I did. I hired a scheduler and a personal assistant shortly after that & the rest is history.
To date, I employ people all over the world in a variety of jobs. I don't cook, I don't clean, heck, I don't even pay my own bills – my team does.
Again, this isn't out of arrogance, but out of necessity. It's necessary for me to focus my energy on growing my team and spreading my mission.
And that's the same method I teach my community now – it's the same level I want you to reach.
You might be afraid of creating a team or creating systems because your reason for staying in your comfort zone is greater than your reason for growing & expanding.
Your why is not strong enough for you to remove your hands from the keyboard and grow a team of people who believe in your mission.
This is why I sometimes let my clients ride in my private plane with me...
...so they can see what it takes to get to this level and understand that growing means you need to be doing a lot more leading and less actually doing.
I remember telling one of my clients, "You got to see what it's like to never have to go through security."
I said, "You have to get motivated to want something in life bigger than you have than have an excuse for staying comfortable."
Yes, I've built systems and an amazing team to allow me to do what I want when I want, but I still work my butt off.
I work in a different way, though. I work to expand and grow instead of muddling around in everyday business activities.
I needed to get my mind out of the realm of playing small and doing what I had learned in school...and move into a place where I could truly express my power into the world & move on my mission.
You need to do the same.
