Publisher's Summary

Zig Ziglar may be the master motivator, Mark Victor Hansen of Chicken Soup for the Soul the master storyteller; Anthony Robbins may be the guru of personal development, but Bob Proctor is the master thinker. When it comes to systematizing life, no one else can touch him. He is simply the best. Bob Proctor collects thoughts like Imelda Marcos used to collect shoes. He strings them together in exquisite arrays, one thought leading logically to the next until a whole method has been constructed.

In You Were Born Rich, Bob Proctor has done it again, this time taking you step by step to the surprising discovery that success is not always reaching out for something that you don't have but rather only reaching over and rearranging the pieces already there. The great value of this audiobook is that you can instantly apply the conclusions to your own life. It will begin to impact you long before you reach the last chapter.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Not at all what is advertised

I got this believing it was the actual audiobook to You Were Born Rich. it isnt. It is an audio edition of a You Were Born Rich seminar. The absence of the seminar workbook makes this audiobook almost worthless. Yes, there is good material presented. But without the visuals, it's value is diminished.

Disappointed at two things

The book is great! Bob gives amazing tips on how to change our old thinking. The explanations he shares about the smallest things in our ways are simple but wow. I am so doing the exercises he's advised.
The reasons I'm giving it a 4 star are:
1. Since the book was a live seminar, the notebook that attendees had wasn't provided as a downloadable PDF format. I was in the clouds when he referred to what pages to go and gave instructions on it.
2. The relaxation exercise could have used relaxation music on the background. I was at all times distracted at Bob's swallowing every time he spoke on this exercise, and his breathing sounds were just too weird. It didn't work for me. I even used headphones to concentrate better, but nothing.
The instructions on it were a little inconsistent (room of images and going up in the elevator) and not very detailed for a beginner like me. Don't get me wrong, I loved everything else, but the relaxation exercise definitely NEEDS FO BE CHANGED.

a $15k seminar in a audio format , awesome

Review by @taratodaylive FB and @tarapannell on twitter
the book was very engaging and I had no problem getting through it as I was irritated when I needed to step away from it to do other things. Because the book was read by the author it was lively and entertaining . The lessons in this book are invaluable and I am so happy we have access to Bob Proctor, material. This has been life changing for me. Thank you, I couldn't ask for more for my few dollars spent on this .

Best approach to teaching the powers of the mind

I have listened to this book 3 times through and certain sections countless times (from chapter 9 on I have lost count on how many repeat times I have listened). I am so excited to be able to pass the wisdom on to my children who are 2 and 4. When they are old enough to understand, they will be inundated with this book and the strategies taught.

Needed!

This information should be taught in every school from grades k-12! A thorough understanding of this information should be required to graduate from high school!

I really enjoyed this book. the stories and examples really made it come alive. Bob's humor really makes this book easy to get through. I did not find any stagnant sections and found it very easy to get through.

Lacks depth

Not nearly as good as the original book written in the 1980s. Something was lost in all of the preacher like "live" presentation.

Deceptive repetitive with an dodgy agenda

Honestly do not waste your time or money on this. I couldnt bear this after 3 hours.
First of all its not an audiobook but rather live recordings from seminars.The sound quality is terrible and the speakers are literally shouting the whole way through. Secondly this is another book peddling new age/occultic ideologies/beliefs. I wasnt looking for a 'religious' book just practical information. What you get instead is generalized ideas, pseudoscience, psuedo mathematics and stuff thats already been written by people like Brian Tracy and other followers of Madam Blavatsky (they all mention her at some point as the greatest mystic or whatever). What was actually insulting was the misquoting of bible scriptures and historical figures! At first I just thought it was a mistake here and there but after 8 misquotes and in particular misquoting EINSTEIN I concluded that this was deliberate. They know their audience and demographic will never search the origins of a quote even with google (Sorry if you are a typical western world male with very loose knowledge of other cultures and even the Bible) However Im the type of person who will go and look it up and make sure it was Socrates, Plato or Jesus who said it. For me it is as much about the character and integrity of the author as it is about the the content. So my conclusion is that they have an agenda and I wont be brainwashed.

Loved This!

This is the best book on the law of attraction and abundance mindset that I’ve read. If you are into LoA then don’t hesitate to buy this book. It’s actually a recorded seminar they held many years ago but the content is still very relevant. These are my favourite excerpts:

- When you get the feeling you can’t do something it’s a reflection of your conditioning and not a reflection of your potential. -

- The power is always with you. It’s just a matter of learning how to direct it. -

- We have a self image problem. Our self image sets the boundaries of performance in every area of our life. We act, behave and feel according to what we consider our self image to be. This is our stumbling block. -

- We don’t get what we want but we do get what we are. -

- You will either step forward into growth or step back into safety. -

- Let’s us not look back in anger nor forward in fear but around us in awareness. -

It also includes a recorded meditation by Bob as the final chapter. I’ll definitely be listening to it again and again!

Has a bad after taste!

What disappointed you about You Were Born Rich?

The presentation is rather old fashioned and the message less than average, its as if the Speaker does not believe in the message and is narrating it as a bystander.

Has You Were Born Rich put you off other books in this genre?

Yes

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Voice not the most pleasant to listen to... even after powering through to listening for a while the message and author's voice leaves you bruised and feeling cheated.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment

Any additional comments?

Will stay away from this type of product in future.

Born Rich - Bob Proctor

Would you listen to You Were Born Rich again? Why?

Yes but I would start it at Chapter 5. Prior to this I zoned out a lot because there were too many in depth explanations of the processes and I was waiting for it to get to the "real stuff". I think even for someone who knows nothing about the power of the mind it would be a tough slog. At Chapter 5 it started to get interesting.

If you’ve listened to books by Bob Proctor before, how does this one compare?

Haven't listened to any of Bob Proctor's works but am interested enough to listen to something else.

Which character – as performed by Bob Proctor – was your favourite?

N/A

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were many ah ha moments

Any additional comments?

It really reinforced the importance of having a good self image. It reinforced everything that I already know but did half heartedly.

The way the information was presented put a more important slant on things. They presented like evangelists from the pulpit and were very loud in their delivery. Listening to it in the car I had to turn up the volume because of the road noise then when stopped in traffic had to turn it down again.

I loved the stories and case studies, although sometimes wonder if they all happened as told. I could imagine someone else not believing that the results were possible. It did make me excited about my own possibilities though and there are a couple of things I want to try out now.

Seriously worth the time investment

Do yourself the biggest favour of your life, & listen to this every day for 90 days, & totally watch your life change before your eyes.

While this may have been recorded back in the 1980s, the only thing that has changed is our technology, every part of this seminar is as relevant today as it was when it was recorded.

In a word, brilliant!

Worthwhile

Yes, the seminar format (complete with 80’s theme song) is dated, but the information is relevant and spot on in the modern world. Bob’s enthusiasm is contagious and the way he uses stories to illustrate concepts is entertaining and makes things easy to understand. I personally learned a lot from this, and have a feeling that I will be returning to listen again and again.

Seminar not book

I purchased because I thought it was the book but this is a live seminar that has pdf downloads. Also draws diagrams that we can’t see.
