Bob Proctor, one of the most legendary figures in personal development
He was a coach, mentor, successful speaker and the author of the New York Times bestseller You were born rich.
As a young man, in the 1960s, Bob had low self-confidence and little ambition. His prospects of success were clouded. Until one day when Napoleon Hill’s Think and grow rich fell into his lap. It was the first book he had ever read and it changed his life forever. He began applying the book’s teachings and soon enough, he was earning more money and was being successful.
Eckhart Tolle explores presence, thinking, and spirituality to help you understand what presence means, how thinking and non-acceptance drive a lot of human pain, and how to live a life that reduces suffering.
His teachings focus on the significance and power of Presence, the awakened state of consciousness, which transcends ego and discursive thinking. Eckhart sees this awakening as the essential next step in human evolution.
Dr Jordan B Peterson is a Professor of Psychology & Clinical Psychologist. As for who he is, I’d suggest listening to some of his lectures, reading his book 12 Rules for Life and deciding for yourself.
Please look into this yourself. People who characterise him as alt right and try to smear him because members of the alt right like his work are dishonest and will not give you an accurate representation of Dr. Peterson’s character. I (Alex) personally think he is a really great man, but that’s because his work really helped me to sort my life out. I will not claim he has never made any mistakes, but considering how much of his work is on the internet he has a remarkably low number of slip ups.

A prolific author and speaker, Alan Watts was one of the first to interpret Eastern wisdom for a Western audience. Born outside London in 1915, he discovered the nearby Buddhist Lodge at a young age. After moving to the United States in 1938, Alan became an Episcopal priest for a time, and then relocated to Millbrook, New York, where he wrote his pivotal book The Wisdom of Insecurity: A Message for an Age of Anxiety. In 1951 he moved to San Francisco where he began teaching Buddhist studies, and in 1956 began his popular radio show, “Way Beyond the West.”
