Mindy Paul, International Business Man For the past few years you have been changing the lives of hundreds of people around the world with your teachings and experience of how you were able to go from a high-school dropout to a very successful entrepreneur, building multiple 6-figure businesses at an early age. You have a powerful story. Can you share some of your biggest lessons with our readers? I always believed that more was possible. However, I used to think, “There must be a secret!” I knew I had to get guidance from someone who knew the science behind success. I understood the idea that there must be a solution, a system of some sort that, when followed, would guarantee a certain amount of ‘success’. I realised that just as we take our car to the mechanic to be fixed, I needed to get myself to the mechanic of success. I had a hunger for it, a fire burning within me, so I kicked myself out of my comfort zone and got myself around the right people. The number one thing you need to do is make the decision. You’ve got to be ready to do whatever it takes to reach your dreams. I committed myself to proving my naysayers wrong by going all in, and I made the conscious decision not to let my lack of ‘experience’ hold me back. You need that winner’s mentality! This entails knowing who you are and where you want to go. What’s your vision? Write it down! We spend more time planning our next holiday than we do mapping our next steps in life. When you make it your mission to refine your vision, you’ll find clarity fast. From your experience, what do you believe separates those who succeed with their goals from those who don’t? If you don’t have a goal, you’re essentially lost. Your goal is the destination you can set your sights on and, once you have that, you just need to follow the map that will get you there! Imagine a captain of a ship navigating through the seas with no map. Sooner or later, the ship will find itself lost and lacking direction. The same applies to business — and to succeed in business, you need direction. It all begins with a defined goal. I know you’ve been working closely with Bob Proctor, international speaker, author and star of the movie ‘The Secret’, as part of his inner circle for quite some time now. How has he impacted your life? Since meeting Bob Proctor, everything in my life has changed. I have spent well over £150,000 hiring mentors, coaches and attending seminars all around the world, but Bob Proctor’s teachings single-handedly changed my life and business, which is why I’m so passionate about educating business owners on his material. I went to him because he’s the authority when it comes to human potential, and I now have the honour of working with him on a 1-1 basis. He’s helped me scale my business to new, international heights, and he’s also armed me with a wealth of transformational knowledge that I now share with my clients on a daily basis, and the results always excite me. Having accelerated your growth with the help of one of the world’s top coaches, how do you believe coaching can impact a business’ growth? The impact is phenomenal but a particular experience with Bob instantly comes to mind. One time when we were in Toronto together, I was opening up to him about my life story and how I felt I was capable of so much more than I was doing at the time. Bob simply responded, “Mindy, It’s not working your way so why not try it my way? Until you find out that I’m lying and I don’t know what I’m talking about, do exactly as I say because I do know what I’m talking about, and I don’t lie!” Let’s just say I listened to his advice and since that day I haven’t looked back! We all have huge amounts of potential locked up within us but we also have an abundance of limiting beliefs holding us back. We see ourselves with a limited amount of potential, and this is known as self-image. Most people try to change their results first but, frankly, you can’t change your results permanently until you change your beliefs, and that is done through a proven system that Bob has taught me, and I can teach you.
