Bob Proctor Goal card

by 28 comments
Hi All

I have a bob proctor product and have come across many of his products in which he always goes back to the use of a goal card.

I just dont understand how this is to be used exactly, can anyone explain?

Thank you

    Hey James

    LOL I have like 50 of them in my office. As well as about 25 copies of his courses from a former partnership with one of his consultants.

    The idea is that you write a concrete goal that you have decided to achieve at all costs. You carry the card around all the time, look at it as often as possible to keep reminding yourself of your intended target.

    The purpose is the programming of your self image. The more you think about something you intend to create, the more likely you will be to think of ideas and recognize opportunities to achieve it.

    I no longer use goal cards but I use a "mental shadowboxing" technique that I talked about here:

    Hey Justin wow thank you

    So for example my goal at the moment could be to reach my target weight of around 168 pounds, so as well as visualising do i write on a card the affirmation that i use which is : i am so happy and grateful now that i am 168 pounds?

    and this card i look at all day long? with the date that i think ill get to the desired weight?

    thank you

    ps: when you said the more you think about something the more likey you are to achieve it, by thinking do you mean visualising?

    Hey James

    Yeah pick a goal and desired date and follow that process. On a side note, I find it bizarre that my intended weight is the exact same... 168 WEIRD!

    Regarding thinking vs. visualizing, etc... I personally don't think it matters. Thinking basically is visualizing because we all pretty much think in pictures. Whatever it takes you to create the emotional state of "already having achieved your goal" is what you should be doing. I write a detailed description of my life as though the goal is achieved. Other people meditate about it. Just create the feelings of having your goal in the present moment and you will move towards the goal.

    It is a universal law!

    thanks james

    so youre saying create the feelings in a conscious state? i mean cos most including bob always say get into a relaxed state no?

    and so whenever i look at the affirmation on the goal card i should read it and get the feeling of having got it whether i can bring up the visualisation im working with in my relaxed sessions or not?

    ps: omg that is weird your 168 wow is that the law of attraction at work then?lol

    I think you're worried too much about "doing it right" in my opinion

    If you use the card to help you constantly focus on your goals, create the feelings of having it now (i.e. excitement, happiness, etc...), then this will help you take the required action to reach your goal.

    Thinking about your goal in a relaxed state can only help as well.

    Personally I don't know "the rules" per se, I just know that focusing on your goals and working hard to achieve them will always work if you are committed to the cause! Good luck

    I dont know Bob Proctor's method... But Earl Nightingale's Method goes something like this..


    write on a card whatever it is you want to achieve or have...

    write it in present, personal tense with an exact date of its achievement..... ex. I earn $100k by September 2011

    Then.. read it aloud every morning upon rising and right before you go to bed each night. Also carry the card around with you all day long and read it whenever you need some inspiration. Do this for 30 days... if it is not achieved than do it again for another 30 days. remember to keep your mind fixated on what it is you want to achieve... Do not let worry or any other doubt come into your mind.


    * I can say.... I do this and it works!

    I needed elaboration! Thank you! I guess I worry too much if I'm doing it right or not. I find that the 'mind chatter' gets in the way. They say awareness is the first step, I'm glad I'm at least aware of it.

    wow this is exactly what I have read and heard too and trying to understand. Bob's method is this as he worked and learnt from and under earl for 5 years.

    So the key to reading it in the morning and at night i understand, and reading it aloud, well can you kinda define that more for me, as in loud? and how many times do u read it? and do you read the date too with the affirmation? I assume its an affirmation you write correct?

    Okay so in the day you pull the card out and read it thats all, you dont visualise it, or anything you just read it?

    thank you

    and would you mind sharing some positive experiences you have had from doing this?

    yeh im the same i worry if im doing it right simply because i feel alot of time has passed without any results therefore doing things wrong and also i dont want to do something and realise later all that effort was wrong or wasted for thats usually how i end up feeling so i always try to do it right otherwise why try...some say this is a perfectionist attitude or conditioning or belief, maybe it is but then how do you change this or should i? lol

    Thank you (might make this a new thread a question about visualising to change perfectionism lol)

    The idea of using this is to install belief and certainty in your mind. it is to keep you focused and moving toward your goal.

    So if you want to know "how loud" and "how many times" ..... well I dont think that matters.. i think what matters is that you believe what your saying as something you are going to create. One test I first did when I heard the "The Strangest Secret" by earl nightgale involved me improving my income to a certain dollar value.

    I would write the statement every evening on a card.. By ______ I earn ______ for ______.. I would read it before I went to bed and upon arrising.. After I read it i would do some visualization as I law in bed to fall asleep..

    I would read it maybe once or twice during the day.. (it came into the habit that I wouldn't necessary read it but Every time i reached in my pocket and felt the card I would think about what it is and I really beleived it would happen... (It was quite a big increase in income let me tell you >>double what i was currently making)

    I also did other excises like reading great books and doing little exercises like writing on the top of black piece of paper .... How can I earn XXX amount of money by _____? Then come up with 20 answers...



    so i did this for 30 days and nothing happened...



    I decided to try it for another 30 days........... NOTHING HAPPENED


    so I decided to do it for another 30 days ..... except about a week or so into that month I got really busy.. so much that I sort of did not have time to make it happen. Alot of really tough things happen including me getting fired.... I totally droped the habit...



    well about three weeks later I started a new company............ It was not until about another 2 months later that I looked back and realized that my income had doubled... I don't mean came close to doubling.... I MEAN IT EXACTLY DOUBLED.... That is when I started taking this method pretty serious.. I have used this method to create many more things in my life...



    I suggest listening to the THE STRANGEST SECRET by Earl Nightingale.

    Hope that clarifies some things for you . Good Luck

    Here is a link to the first 15 minutes of "The Strangest Secret"

    in the second half is where he talks about his goal setting method..... I'm sure you can find it on youtube somewhere...

    thank you im going to listen to the clips you posted later as dont have time at the moment but thank you

    you said you wrote this: By ______ I earn ______ for ______.

    so yo u would read the date everytime you read the card, i mean you read starting from the word "BY"?

    also after the word "earn" came the numerical amount, but what came after the word "for"? (im not sure what the word for is for?)

    and if its okay with you would you mind giving some more examples of how this has helped you and what other things you have created?

    would you say this method also motivated you to take action even if or when you would procrastinate or avoid taking action of our anxiety or fear?

    thank you

    Hello. Just saw this thread and I found it quite interesting

    I had one doubt about Goal Cards though, do I put down my immediate short term goal, or my long term one. For example, my goal is to do a PhD in my field, and get recognized for my work. I have enrolled for the program , and I am almost 1.5 years in and so far, it hasn't been going great. My qualifying exams are coming up in 2 months, so I write down on my goal card 'Acing the Qualifying Exam' or 'Complete my PhD'?

    Just a confusion. Would like to hear your opinions on it

    Thanks!

    Write down whatever goal gives you stronger emotional intensity. Picture each goal complete. Which one feels more real and more exciting?

    The idea here is you want to condition your mind and body to behave as though the goal is inevitable.The more you do this, the more certain you become you will achieve it. The more certain you become, the more you BELIEVE it... and the belief is the real key. If you believe it completely, you will make it happen.

    When I was a teenager one of the books I read taught this very thing. I used to carry an index card in my wallet stating the goals I wanted with a timeline. It was a great idea then and it is now. In fact I think I just might start doing this again! Thanks for posting!

    Bob Proctor is also in The Secret. It is based on the same principles that Nightingale talked about. The full movie is on Amazon. I would highly recommended to anyone interested in the power of the mind and the law of attraction.
