Praise for Bob Proctor:
“Zig Ziglar may be the master motivator, Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield of Chicken Soup for the Soul, the master story tellers; Anthony Robbins may be the guru of personal development, but Bob Proctor is the master thinker. When it comes to systemizing life, no one can touch him.”
—Doug Wead, presidential historian, philanthropist and public speaker
“I was blessed to meet Bob Proctor at the beginning of my career as an author and speaker. Because of his wisdom and guidance, I was able to make more money my first full year of speaking than I did at the top of my career at Sprint Communications. Bob’s insight enabled me to jumpstart my business in a way I would have never been able to do without his help. I wholeheartedly recommend Bob Proctor to everyone who is ready to transform their existing reality.”

—Jay Abraham, Fortune 500 Consultant

—John Assaraf, president of Re/Max of Indiana
"Bob Proctor is known to so many as someone to listen to, to watch, to learn from. The secret gift of Bob is that he gives you to yourself. A return to innocence, where a paradigm shift takes place, if you allow. From there, awake and aware, you can be anything you want."
—Paul Gilman, musician, producer and composer, and owner of GilmanSound

In The ABC's of Success, Bob Proctor lays out exactly what it takes to be successful in every area of your life. The way the book is laid out is unique. It's in alphabetical order, listed by subject, such as Achievement. Bob pulls no punches. Tells you exactly what is required of you to be successful in virtually every given area you can think of. Yes, it does have a Law of Attraction twist, but Bob says that The Law of Vibration is the primary law we are working with. The Law of Attraction is a secondary law.
All in all, fantastic book. Short but sweet. One of the best out there as far as this writing goes.
If you search Bob Proctor on YouTube, you will find literally hundreds of videos that he is made over the years. Bob is blunt. If you are a knucklehead, Bob will tell you you’re a knucklehead, not to be mean, but because you need to know if you are to do anything about it. Then he’ll give you a little story and a way to change what you’re doing.
“The ABCs of Success” is not a book with an overarching storyline. Rather it is more like a collection of Bob Proctor parables gathered from his decades of service to his fellow man. Each parable stretches for only a few pages and each may be consumed in a few minutes. There are a lot of them, and just like Aesop’s fables, each can be amusing or sobering and each ends with several quotes that reinforce the story.
I read Bob’s book on the Paper White Kindle. The Kindle format makes it easier to enlarge the type for older eyes and it is simple to bookmark particular pages that I wanted to come back to and reread. I already have several stories bookmarked and annotated. One of them is is the chapter “Worry” about which he writes “92% of what you worry about never happens.” It includes the magical $2000 check. Another is “Tough Decisions”, Lincoln’s answer to critics. Still another is the “Quixote Attitude. (You’ll have to buy the book to find out what that is.)
In one of Bob’s seminars, he mentioned that he carried a Moroccan leather bound copy of Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”. He said he read a little bit from it every day and after years of reading it, he still found new ideas. I believe that Bob Proctor’s “ABC’s of Success” may be such a gem.
It allows you to understand not just how he has become the force in the world that he is, but how the principles that he has applied are available to us all---if only we will do the work necessary to use them.
This book is literally an ABC guide to the success that you want for yourself, whatever that might look like for you. He shares with us the importance of not settling, and not believing that just because something works for you doesn't mean it is the "right" way. He also encourages us to realize the potential given us within, in our mind and in our will---and to use them to the fullest of our ability.
I found myself so inspired by this not just because of the mantras he shares but the quotes from others that are sue to make you smile. Like this one by Dorothea Brande: "Act as tho' it were impossible to fail." That quote really should motivate to look at every opportunity as a lesson to learn from and to improve with. There is also the quoting of one of my favorite scriptures: "Seest thou a person diligent in their business? They shall stand before kings. (Prov 22:29)"
If you are looking to move forward in your life and wanted to find a guide that could lead you were you want to go, it all begins with Bob Proctor's ABCs of SUCCESS.
I wholeheartedly endorse this book and all of Bob Proctor's works. He is a master of his art and has changed the lives of so many in his 50 year career. Thanks Bob. :)
