In Bob Proctor’s Six Minutes To Success, he talks about a concept called The Razors Edge. This concept has most likely been around since the beginning of time, but it was made popular – under a different name – in Napoleon Hills groundbreaking masterwork Think and Grow Rich. The principals states that the majority of people attempting to accomplish a goal are literally just inches away from completing it. The average person is programmed to quit right before the finish line. This brief analysis will attempt to flush this out in detail.
On my journey to self-improvement I have smashed directly into The Razors Edge concept on numerous occasions. Of course I was not aware of this principle early in life, I can look back and see how I was effected by it’s existence. There is a strange bit of programming within the human mind that tends to sabotage people who try to accomplish big goals. The purpose of the programming is unknown, but it’s existence was undoubtedly placed there for a reason. History is filled with people who attempted to accomplish great things and decided to stop inches from the goal line. I myself have been tempted to quite right at the point of victory on many occasions. Maybe this is the law of attraction reading the inner doubt and hesitation and interjecting itself. The law of attractions states that you will attract into your life the things you think about in your mind. For example, if your consistently thinking about the reasons you will fail then your subconscious mind picks up on that and guides you to fail. Most of the time the person will be none the wiser on the reason for their failure. On the flip side, if you decide with your mind that you will succeed and repeat those thoughts throughout the day, studies show your chance of success is much higher.
I was first introduced to these concepts by Bob Proctor and have been studying them religiously every since. When you always seem to fail these ideas can seem very foreign and – for lack of better words – full of shit. When one begins to apply these powerful concepts into their mind you can start to see results immediately. One of the main things I would notice is the use of limiting language in my speech. I have now made the conscious effect to eliminate all phrases that don’t serve my goal of being successful. When I head to work for the day I don’t “try to make money” instead I “make money.” Or when I talk about my company I don’t say that “I will try to make it successful” instead I say “my company is successful.” The concept of programming your brain first to help you achieve the results your want in your life is the key. This is primarily called the Law of Attraction, but is also referred to the Law of Vibration. The key concept here is that nothing stands still, everything is constantly in motion. Therefore, the vibration you are in effects everything around you and what you attract into your life. Now lets bring this concept back to The Razors Edge concept we initially started with.
As Bob Proctor says, “You are just one inch away from beauty and success in your life”. It’s true, we are all very close to achieving the life we have always wanted. Sometimes though that last inch or two turns into a wall that’s very hard to break through. I know from personal experience that a lot of people out there have pushed hard for a goal, only to fail time and time again. This is the most critical time in the process because the failure will stop 99% of people from pursuing their dreams. The winners know that when they reach that final resistance, they have reached the razors edge. That’s when you know it’s time to push even harder until you break through. What is it going to take to get you to blast through the resistance in your life? Maybe you need to get up an hour earlier, maybe you need to give something up, or maybe you just need to believe in yourself. The fact of the matter is that you made your mind up to achieve a certain result and now is the time to take it! Double down on your dreams, redouble your efforts, and hit the barbwire until you accomplish your dreams.
