Episode #31: Bob Doyle star of from How Thoughts Become Things movie

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Bob Doyle is best known for his contribution to the film and book “The Secret”, as a law of attraction expert. Bob Doyle is now featured in the new movie called "How Thoughts Become Things"


He has been teaching these principles through programs, live events, podcasts, livestreams, coaching, writing, and even virtual reality, since 1998. He is driven by his passion for creative self-expression and his work is heavily focused on helping people decide who they want to be and how they want to express themselves.


Bob found this work as a result of a years-long journey to find a career that allowed him to express his creativity and value the most, and his frustration with a lack of success led him down more metaphysical paths, which eventually led to his understanding and adoption of Law of Attraction principles. Through his own success, he was inspired to share what he learned, and has continued to do that since that time.


Recently, Bob’s attention has shifted from the metaphysical aspects of the Law of Attraction or “reality creation” process, to a more grounded and ​biological ​look at what controls our experiences... our brain.


Bob believes that an understanding of how our brain is processing our experience of reality, empowers us to create NEW realities with a simple decision - and you’re not required to believe any “law of attraction” ideas if you’re not comfortable with metaphysical conversations.


Bob has always been focused on bringing these principles down-to-earth so that you can achieve profound results without taking any leaps of faith that would actually slow the process down.


Bob believes that all of this should be the MOST fun and creative endeavour we can ever undertake, if we will only allow it to be so.


In addition to his Law of Attraction work, Bob has also been a voiceover artist since 1985, and the host of The Bob Doyle Show, which is more of a variety show where Bob showcases his other outlets of creativity including music, computer animation, virtual reality, and more.

Okay. So let's start with the first question. Oh okay, yea hi then, welcome back for another episode of life according tiasmind. My Name Jezzemine Sammy, and I'm a towel of Yourd author, public speaker and chat advocate. He's passionate about inspiring children and adults to unleash there in a child. I actually say let go and to him. Today enjoying a very special guest, and his name is Bob Doyle and he's a start in a new movie called how thoughts become things. Thank you so much for joining me. Is Okay, you introduce yourself to our listeners. I I'm Bob and I was originally best known for for being in a similar film, like thirteen years ago, called the secret, was also about, you know, creating our life basically starting with our thoughts, and so how thoughts become things has happened, you know, like thirteen years later. It's a nice update. It's a focus on the brain and the science of it, and so it's a real honor and pleasure to be a part of it. Thank you. And so we're going to start with the first question. What Your Success Habits? Okay, so this is great. My Success Habits are not your traditional I don't know what a lot of other traditional business people might tell you. Mine is so much about mindset because, you know, my message these days is really about the quality of our thoughts, obviously, like how thoughts become things, and making sure that we, each of us, is very clear on where we want to go and who we want to be, like what is our vision that really excites us and inspires us, based on who we truly all are. And if I do that every day, then I trust that what's going to come to me, the plan will basically unfold. You know, the the success, my success habits, my success activities, may vary depending...

...on what it is that I'm actually working on, you know. So it's more of a mindset and the mindset is always be getting into the feeling of how I want to feel, doing the things I love to do, and then act on things as they come to me. That is amazing and like some of the things that you talk to on the movie as well about mindset as well, was really interesting because when you're talking about how, when a new born baby is born into a family, they don't really have control of what they're going to do when they grow up. And something I like to say their mine is like a photograph, so whatever you project to them, that's what they're going to project back. So it's really amazing. That's the whole concept of wiring. That that I was really that's kind of my focus in the movie and in the work I'm doing right now, is that whole concept that we are such we're just so open when we're little and we don't know how to evaluate information and decide whether or not it's good for us, bad for us, limiting or whatever. We just don't know. So you know, like all of you, have been very blessed to be in such an environment where you have been given these positive thoughts and you know how to create a vision for yourself. But a lot of people do not, because, you know, they're their parents are struggling and they have their own sets of limiting beliefs and it's it's you know, that's the majority of people. So so it's it really is very important those first few years to put good things in and teach a child how to find the positive in virtually any situation and to learn that just because everybody else gets upset about something doesn't mean that you have to and that there are other ways to look at things. That is amazing. So that when we went to the second question, what mistakes have you made along the way and what did you learn from them? Okay, the biggest mistake I made, and I made it more than one, which is not following my intuition, like when I get when I get a gut feeling about something, like I an opportunity that I should or shouldn't do and let's say, my ego wants to do it because there's a good money...

...out making opportunity or whatever. It looks good on paper, but something inside me is saying, I don't know right, but I do it anyway. Well, that almost always bites me right and that's happened, you know, a few times, and it's easy to do. We're all human, right. I try to be very conscious about those things, but it really is, you know, ignoring red flags or whatever you want to call it, but just not trusting that that guidance system that, you know, I didn't really even know I had from most of my life, you know, and once I learned kind of what it felt like then it was like now it's my responsibility not to ignore it and if I do, I know that something might hot happen that's not going to be so great. Yeah, that's amazing. Like most people don't really choose to follow the intuition, as you was saying, but when you follow it it's like a pathway that is unlooked, like a door. So you might need to find the key on a journey, but once you listened to your intuition, you'll find the key eventually. So it's amazing. I always that's brilliant. I always say that intuition is is, is our communication with the rest of the universe. Basically, you know, we're creating a vision, we're basically saying this is what we want, and the universe and all of its creative intelligences is is responding, you know, through our intuition, with with with whether it's an idea of something to do and action to take, or maybe it might be a coincidental meeting. That's I just call that exchange of information back and forth. Are Intuition, but we have to be open to hearing and acting on it. And depending on where you are in your life, it may not be easy to do that at first. It gets easier as you do it. That is amazing. So next to into the next question. What was the had this decision you ever had to make? M Why? I think one of the one of the pivotal decisions was when I in two thousand, when I left my corporate job, when I decided I am not going to get a paycheck anymore from anybody. I'm going to figure it out. And I had tried,...

I had done several things, entrepreneur type endeavors and not done so well. But in this last job I just got to a point where I have to, I have to I cannot be an employee anymore. And so, but I but I struggle with that for a couple of years, you know, before I actually left. So the fear of that, because I had a young family and, you know, a lot of responsibility and and no real assurance of anything at all. And so that was that was definitely a big, huge turning point and it was a tricky summer, but it was the beat. I had to do it. Yeah, because it got me to where I had my big Aha moment which led me down the path of you know, where I am now and what I'm teaching. So it's kind of like what you said about intuition as well, listening to what your hat has to tell you. Yes, well, I ignored my heart for a long time. It was screaming, it was making itself very clear that I was supposed to be doing something else. And so no, but I rationalized it, rationalized all that fear. Basically, I think, you know, if a lot of us are just dominated by fear and we delay taking action on things that we want to do or we never take action at all on things because of fear, and I know that that was a huge part of my journey getting over those you know, I had to major transitions. I had my job and then later I had a divorce, and those are all huge decisions that, you know, intuition was saying one thing and then ego was saying another thing, and so it just, you know, it went all longer than it needed to, and people suffer like that all the time. Yeah, it's amazing that you chose to follow your hull, because you're doing what you're doing today, which is amazing. And so what some of the steps of people should follow to help them to heal, forgive and then to go on to live a life with builder gratitude? Well, those are. There's a lot of good stuff in there. Look, the first step to any of this, in my mind, and it's what I keep I'm driving this point home to everybody I'm talking to, is, you know,...

...when you talk about self improvement, who is the self we want to improve? Do we want to try to fix a sort of, quote unquote, broken version of ourselves, or do we want to create a whole new one? Like who do we really want to be in our lives? Get forget everything up to this point. Forget who you've been, why you've justified it. Who Do you really want to be? And you can become that. But now you have to, you know, you have to think on that. That has to be your persistent thought. You have to marinate in that vision and get the feeling of it and all that, so that your brain now can rewire to, you know, a new way of thinking, in a new way of interpreting life. But that is how dramatic change you know will happen, starting with that vision of who do I want to be, because everything is informed by that. Once you know who you truly want to be, that then you can decide what you want to have in your life. But until that time. If you're acting from who you've been, if you're feeling limited, if you're whatever, you're not liking, if you try to design a future from that place, you're probably going to think from a limited place. It's not going to be it's not going to be infused with the feelings you want. It's all about fixing a problem. So I really highly recommend that people just start from scratch. That is amazing and like what you're saying. Who is the stuff that you want to improve? So you can even be what you said about, quote, the broken pop yourself. You can even choose the hell a little bit, or you can choose to held the whole of your body so that you have like a freshness late. So yeah, yeah, yeah, we have to be careful because I've after coaching people for like twenty years, I understand that if people identify themselves at any point in the journey of like being broken or I've got this issue, if they if they're not careful, they're going to that's going to be part of their identity, right and they're going to own that unnecessarily. It's just wiring. It's a story. It was a part of their life or they went through something and it doesn't have to be there for ever. But they...

...can't keep talking about it, they can't keep identifying themselves with it. They have to forget that completely and speak into the new version of themselves and they will eventually literally disconnect from any any kind of connection with that old version of themselves. But people tend to keep their story alive. Oh well, I'm much better now, but you know, I used to do this or I and then, but you're keeping it alive when you do that. Yeah, I'm like. One of the things that was said in the movie, I believe, is that, for example, when people wake up, what they would norly do is even brush their teeth. will go get a cup of coffee and then wash. But there was one I forgot who was saying it, that they were saying. When you repeat those again, your brain just automatically does it. So if you acknowledge yourself as being a broken person, being a person who doesn't have a purpose in life, then that's what you're going to be recognized as in life. That's correct, and you're both by others, because that's how you're going to occur to everybody, and then yourself, because you're going to perpetuate it. That story just it's going to impact every decision you make about that. That could change your life. But if you believe that you're broken and well, that's just the way it is, then you're not going to take the action because you don't believe anything could happen for you. But that's just a decision. Like if you took the action and then took another action and began to take that you know, do the rewiring. But look, I want to acknowledge that it is not easy and as adults, which I'd mostly deal with the wiring is so many years old, they getting people to commit to doing a new habit of specially thinking and reaction. I mean it is a lot to ask of a person and and but, but unfortunately that is just how it is. And you can take it on as like, Oh, this is going to take forever, which will only make it so right, or you can say, Oh, I get it, I'm wired this way because of this now and it's been on autopilot and now I can change it intentionally and I won't take nearly as long. So and then that will be your truth. That is amazing. So another question. Why do you think is important for families to watch how thoughts...

...become things together. The when you're going through change, transformation, if you get inspired by the film, for example, and then you say, Oh wow, you know, I want to I want to take this on, I want to think a bigger thought for myself. I want to dream big. If everybody in the family is on the same page, they've all seen the same movie, they've you've discussed it, you know, you've kind of got an understanding of okay, well, these are these principles and this is the implication. Now you can be a support system for each other. If just one person watches it and the others don't, and they don't they can't get into the conversation. You start talking about, you know, being intentional, about visualization or whatever, there's there. You may or may not connect, and then you're just flying solo. And if there was any sort of if there was anybody in the group who is like just didn't believe it because they didn't discuss it, or whatever it is, you know, they that will make it difficult, more were difficult, for you to sustain the mindset you need, because family is it's really deep emotionally. We get we get triggered by family. You know, where no one else can trigger us in a certain area, a family member can say something and the new spiral. And so if everybody's on the same page with something as important as this, the foundation of creating a vision for the for the family and for the individuals, than that is a great thing. That's amazing. Like what some of the things that helped you to get to your successes today? Not Quitting, because you know it was. It was truly a I I quote unquote, failed so many times. I mean you know, but the key to all of this and getting anywhere is that distinction that just fee. Failure does not mean to stop. It's just feedback it. You try something, it didn't work. What can I learn from this? How can I modify it and move forward? That's how all the great inventions take place. There are countless errors, countless thing and we just don't hear about it. We hear about the successes or but this is how it works, this is how we walk. When we learn to walk, we fall and fall and fall and fall...

...and fall, but we are committed and we walk. If we could just take the rest of our lives and all the learning that we do in the same spirit. You know, we we a lot less anxiety. That's amazing, like what you're saying, like when we're baby, when we learned to what we can. People going like we fall down. Not many people like to acknowledge their failures. Many, like you said, many people like to acknowledge what they did right. But if you're not really acknowledging the things that you did wrong, if they occur again, how are you going to like deal with them? For example, like if things happen in your company and you wouldn't really like a lot of people to know about it, but only tell your close friends, that will only be kept in a box forever. But wouldn't people like to share their failure so that if other people want to, for example, stop a business and they go through a hard time, it would be helpful for them to learn that some people went through failures and it's okay to fail, but one thing is to get back up and keep on going. So yeah, it is. The thing is to get back up and keep on going. And then what will make you do that is a vision that is compelling and inspiring to you. If it's not your vision, if it's somebody else's vision. If you're not fully on board, then you know it's going to be really easy to quit and get you know, had let resistance get the best to you and you're old wiring just take right over. But if you're inspired by your own vision and you just know that, no matter what happens, I'm going to get there, then it actually just makes the whole journey so much easier. What was your favorite part about being in the movie? Well, I think it was just a revisiting of the the whole concept was good. After you know origin, you know so many years from the first from the secret, and also because we were talking about more science type of stuff, you know, more biology of it than the energy and you know, more metaphysical stuff, which I got no problem with, but for a lot of people it's harder to get their minds around and some people won't even look at it because of that. So if we...

...can talk about just brain science that any scientists are in agreement with and how this will make your life better or how you can create your life by design, they don't even need to know that the law of attraction or whatever is at play. It doesn't make any difference. And so that's why I've really put a lot of my focus into just let's just talk about the brain and how it's processing things. And, Oh, by the way, here's what happens energetically when you do yeah, so that's like one of the things I was said in the movie about thoughts and thinking. So there's a difference between thinking and having a thought. So thinking it is just be like something that would just pop up, but a thought would be something that you actually took time to think on. So it's okay if you elaborate on what you think. The difference between thoughts and thinking is, well, I I may be wrong, but I see it the other way around. Thinking is a deliberate act. I am now going to think about this. Thoughts come in all day and those are the things that are not deliberate. And so yeah, I mean we're riddled with thoughts, with that, because we're triggered. We're triggered by so many things. Were triggered by thoughts, and I mean rights and sound, all of our senses, right can trigger these random thoughts that just show us a picture or give us a memory or sweep us with a feeling, you know, or whatever, and those are going to just come all day because we're human and we're reacting. We can choose to fixate on them and give them some time and attention. Now we're thinking about them. Yeah Right. So you know, I guess in the context of the movie, we do want to do some thinking around who we want to be. Yeah, right, because of the thoughts about who we could be or could be random all over the place. Some could be empowering, some could be disempowering, depending on who we're talking to, the time of day, did we get enough sleep? Right? So I think thinking is just more of a deliberate, conscious act. Thank you. Thank you so much for being on the show. Is there? Is there a final message that you'd like to leave everyone with? Well, just this, I guess. The sooner...

...you start getting clear on who you want to be in the world, like if you're really focused on what you want to have and getting fixated on all I'm how am I going to get this money? or I would invite you to take a step back from all of that. If there's any WORRI or stress or anything about creating your vision, it's probably because you're creating it from a place of a way of being that you're not a hundred percent satisfied with and you'd like to be a more empowered version of yourself. So take the time now to create that person. Who Do you want to be? And and if you need some help with that, just go through your day. As you go through your day and you find yourself feeling sort of disempowered, like one of those things happens that always get you in a bad mood, stop for a moment and think, okay, I'm just I'm going on my programming right now. I'm getting upset about this. What how would I like to be about this? What would feel way better than this? And imagine that person, that version of you that would act in that way. You may have to give us a little bit of thought, but but imagine that and then see if you just can't do it instead of going the other way. That is ultimately what is going to do the rewiring. But it starts with being conscious about the fact that you're that you're being triggered in the first place. That is amazing. It's any like social media, where anyone can find you. I am very easy to find, very easy to find on facebook. If you know, if you just type in Bob Doyle, you'll find all sorts of things. I've got meat. Bob Doylecom is just sort of like where you can find out everything. That is amazing. I'll be sure to go into that website as well. It's been an absolute honor having you on my show and I hope you listeners have learned a lot from what Bob is saying and to just really take in everything and to input some of it in your life. So I hope you guys enjoyed watching this episode and thank you so much. By.
