Known as one of the world’s biggest Law of Attraction experts, Bob Proctor is a great believer in the “Law” and continues to teach others its philosophies to this day. He believes that if you allow yourself to feel and visualize what you want in your life, you will attract it. But long before his role in the movie, The Secret, about Law of Attraction principles, he was a leader in the world of personal development and his insights and strategies ignited career transformations worldwide allowing him to build multi-million-dollar fortunes time and again.
But Proctor’s earlier life was not one of prosperity. He was a high-school dropout who struggled to find success and it was not until a friend gave him Think and Grow Rich, a book by Napoleon Hill, that Proctor’s life changed dramatically. His entrepreneurial spark had been lit and he went on to start his own office cleaning services company, earning more than $100,000 in his first year. Proctor then joined the Nightingale-Conant Organization, a company that produced personal development material recorded on vinyl records, where he was mentored by expert Earl Nightingale. After achieving a high-ranking position with the company, Proctor decided it was time to go off on his own and begin teaching others how to achieve their goals, just like he had done.
And today, Proctor is a world-renowned speaker, New York Times best-selling author, consultant, coach, and mentor, whose foundations of success and motivation to achieve, include mental strategies as well as actionable methods which allow individuals to thrive in today’s rapidly changing world. And most recently, Proctor is featured in Navigating the Clickety Clack: How to Live a Peace-Filled Life in a Seemingly Toxic World, alongside several other New York Times best-selling authors Jack Canfield and Christy Whitman. Contributing authors include Liz Acar, Marcus Bird, Maria Bradfield, Natalie Cook, Jeffrey Gignac, Karen Kan, Kate Moriah, Kelly Moser, Kim O’Neill, Angi Ponder Reid, Donna Riley, Deborah Robbins, Jani Roberts, Trisha Schmalhofer, Venetta Demos Stathis, Lea Williamson, and Ariel Yarger. All are real-life examples of individuals who are living a peace-filled life and will share their personal stories of how they feed their beliefs with thoughts that support their desires and beliefs.
Many might wonder, “Exactly what is the “clickety clack?” In 2005, Keith Leon S., owner of Beyond Belief Publishing and the man behind the concept for Navigating the Clickety Clack: How to Live a Peace-Filled Life in a Seemingly Toxic World, and wife Maura, befriended a man named Fletch Rainey, at the Agape International Center of Truth in California. Rainey, founder of a group called, “The Spiritual Posse” became one of Keith and Maura’s spiritual mentors guiding them through troublesome times pertaining to finances, business challenges and constant changes in an oftentimes challenging world. Rainey referred to the times filled with uncertainty as the “clickety-clack.” Thinking back to his childhood days of riding a ten-speed bicycle and needing to change gears, there is the moment when the chain jumps from one gear to the next. The sound it makes is a clickety-clack. Yet, as a child riding a ten-speed bicycle there are no concerns about the action of changing from one gear to the next, but for that split second as they shift, the clickety-clack does require one to take note. To Rainey’s point, if you have faith in the process, things will all work out just as they should. And as Proctor believes, everything just is. It is neither good nor bad, it just is.
When asked how the clickety-clack has shown up in his life, Proctor’s response was, as to be expected, presented with a positive nature and opportunity for growth. The clickety-clack is simply a part of life because we truly never know how things will turn out. As he illustrates his point, the Wright brothers didn’t know how to get a plane in the air until after they flew it in the air. When you’re working to accomplish a goal, it’s natural to be pursuing something you don’t yet know how to do. The purpose of a goal is to grow and to seek things that make you better than you currently are. But with the pursuit of perfection also comes the moments of clickety-clack. Out of the confusion comes a higher degree of order, ultimately the end goal is accomplished and this is when everything falls into place. However, it is perception, which many to believe as reality, that allows some to remain the course and some to falter. Proctor explains that it’s all about perception and things are not always as they appear. One may perceive a certain “gear change” as a failure that is about to happen or as the natural progression of movement, to the next stage. And Proctor reminds us that we create our own reality through managing our thoughts and beliefs.
With Covid-19 becoming a household name since the spring of 2020, our world has delivered us with many daunting challenges. In Navigating the Clickety Clack: How to Live a Peace-Filled Life in a Seemingly Toxic World, readers will be enlightened by Proctor’s personal, insightful approach on how he stays peaceful in a seemingly toxic world.
