First Class Abundance

About ten years ago Bob Procter told me if you aren't flying First Class, you're still in poverty consciousness.

It took almost all of those ten years for me to agree with him. I resisted paying the extra money, thinking I should use it for something else.

Well, that's scarcity thinking. There's enough money for First Class and everything else IF your mindset is one of abundance.

Today I'm there. Today I only fly First Class.

Thank you, Bob Procter. I should have listened to you long ago.

I totally agree, but I also wonder how this works when money is incredibly tight. You just trust that the Universe will provide, I suppose.

Joe I'm really curious; of all of the speakers from The Secret, which one do you look up to the most, think you've learned the most from, or that you think communicates the message the most clearly?

I love it when you guys do joint-venture-type conversations and mention each other on your blogs etc.; it shows a real respect and comraderie for one another.

Dear Joe:

Bob Proctor also changed my life. I have been associated with Nightingale-Conant since 1968 when Bob was the head of sales and training - way back when.

Along with the late Nick Carter (V.P. of Communications) as my mentor for 32 years and Bob's teaching foundation in Lead the Field and Strangest Secret one could not ask for more. In 1968 NC had only 3 programs and it was Nick who traveled and spoke with Earl, and side by side with Earl built the company - - I have seen the tremendous growth in the Performance Improvement & Life Enrichment Profession first and over the last 39 years.

One THOUGHT can change an ATTITUDE (depends how you define these words) and the Actions, Feelings, and Moods are changed. Bob Proctor changed quite a few thoughts for me in 1968. His specialty was showing how the MIND works and how ATTIUDES can be changed.

I retired in 1980 and now live in Las Vegas, after spending 15 years in Hawaii. If you are ever in Las Vegas I would like to share with you these thoughts from Earl and Bob.

...Earls Formula for getting Rich.(20 Min.)

...Earls thoughts on the ESSENUALITY of Personal Growth - the 3% rule that will guarantee our Security.(5 Min.)

...Earl's Strangest Secret to Success and 5 things you must do to pay the price. -(One sentence)

...Earls and Dr. Hyatt's definition of Happiness and four simple factors to achieve.

...Nick Carter's one sentence that explains why people have problems with communications and his 3 steps to Desire. 1. Set the Star 2. Develop a can do ATTITUDE 3. Never give up. (To him the rest was fluff)

A Goal and dream to build a resort in Hawaii called Kealohalani (A little bit of heaven) for those in the Performance Improvement Profession to go to and - - - relax, learn, and teach. The time table is 1/11/11 for completion and the initial phase will require $250 Million in venture capitol.We hope it will be on Molokai (The Friendly Isle).

Maybe this is "The Mansion" you are seeking - - FIRST CLASS ABUNDANCE - and a tax deduction with trips to Hawaii, Vegas, etc. to oversee. Who better than you has the Imagination and Experience to a least give this project a thought.

In Gratitude & Expectancy,


DocJTR (


"The Strangest Secret" - "You Become What You Think About."

"The Secret" - "1. Ask 2. Believe 3. Receive."

(This is where I do my volunteer work since I have retired.)

PS Any Ideas please let me know and THANK YOU & BOB and all the Leaders in the Field from all the people you serve. As Earl defined money - "It is the REWARD for Our SERVICE - As Ye Sow So Shall Ye Reap - The Law of Cause & Effect.

What a concept! :-)
This is SO TRUE. And not everyone can yet fly First Class... but I assert if you come from Abundance Consciousness, you might just get bumped up to where you "belong"! It's happened to me!

Next time I book a flight, I am definitely going to have this in mind!

Thanks as always Joe!

In Wealth and Abundance,

Joe, this is a good point.

Of course some of us can't afford to fly first class or live a first class lifestyle (yet!), as we're currently working towards our financial success.

How would you advise us to feel abundant whilst watching what we spend?

Regards, Peter

Hi Joe,
One of my new hobbies is to visualize my hubby and I in 1st class when we travel. He has been bumped up before on business trips.... I haven't ...yet! =) The last trip we were on we ended up manifesting $300 vouchers instead, for flight in the future for taking a voluntary bump and hanging out at the Dallas - Fort Worth Airport for an extra hour and a half. I see myself in First Class on my next trip, though! (after I take a voluntary bump and get another travel voucher, of course!!!)
Kind Regards,

There's something I've been struggling with a bit about this 'abundance consciousness.' I see most of the people touting this philosophy are white males barring Lisa Nichols and Oprah.

I think the black community and other ethnic communities can benefit from this philosophy but it's difficult to get someone to believe in it when they're living paycheck to paycheck and seem to have insurmountable obstacles in their way. It's difficult to tell someone to 'be happy now' when their kids don't have healthcare, they were just laid off work and don't know what's coming next.

I don't know what the block is for me and others of my race but i know it is there. I guess i'm asking, how? How to make it work and believable for the people that need to hear it most?

-Thanks for your time
