Interview With Law Of Attraction Expert Bob Doyle From Wealth Beyond Reason

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Bob Doyle is The Founder & CEO of Boundless Living, Inc. You may know
Bob from his appearances in the popular movie and best-selling book,
“The Secret”. Bob was one of the featured “teachers” in both. Before
“The Secret” was featured on, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, “Larry King
Live, and “Oprah” – Bob had written his own book called, “Wealth Beyond

Bob Doyle - Author & CEO of Boundless Living, Inc.

For years Bob had jumped around from career to career, trying
desperately to find something that provided a solid income for him and
his family, but also tapped into his sense of passion and creativity.
After 4 years at his last corporate job, he literally felt like he was
dying and made the decision to quit his job, give up his salary and
benefits, and create a business of his own.

This proved to be quite a challenging endeavor. Bob was $70,000 in debt
and had started to receive phone calls from creditors. Further, his
various attempts at creating a business that was both fun and profitable
were simply not working. Ironically, the businesses he was trying to
create were focused on helping people to live their lives by design, and
although he could “teach” these concepts, there was clearly simply a
component he was missing, as his own life clearly showed.

It was at this point, he set a new intention for himself. Instead of
putting his attention on “solving his money problems”, he instead
focused on what he truly wanted his life to look like. He created a new
inspiring vision for himself and let go of trying to “figure everything
out”, and instead decided to follow his intution into inspired action.

The dramatic change of approach eventually led him down a path to the
answers he was seeking. As a result of what he learned, he was able to
finally create a business that he loved, and was very lucrative.

Soon, he wrote his first book, “Wealth Beyond Reason“, based on his
Internet program of the same name and built up his Internet presence of to a 6 figure, and eventually a 7-figure income
and now he is helping others live the life of their dreams and own their
own terms, utilizing the same principles that facilitated the change in
his own life.

Here is our interview with Bob Doyle.

Abundant Health Center: Bob, hello. Thank you for taking your time to
speak with us today. A lot of people (I think) get confused by the
title of your book, and of course now it is an entire course, “Wealth
Beyond Reason” – but it’s really more than “material” or “physical”
wealth isn’t it? Would you mind explaining what it means to you and how
you came up with the idea to write this wonderful book?

Bob Doyle: Well, the book of course was based on our Internet curriculum
in the Law of Attraction, also called Wealth Beyond Reason. And
honestly, I wrote the book based on the material in the program because
I needed something physical to give to people at an upcoming speaking
event! I never really ever planned to write the book. It just showed up
as an inspired action to take, and I’ve definitely learned to follow
through when I get a “nudge” to do something like this.

One of the first things we do in the program and the book is help people
to define what “wealth” really means to them. Obviously, our natural
inclination is to associate wealth with the amount of money that we have
– but for the purposes of the work we do, we distill a different
definition of wealth which is, in essence, the ability to do what we
truly want to do, whenever we want to do it.

That may mean you have a lot of money and that financial abundance
facilitates your ability to live the life you want. But many people have
passions or callings that bring them great happiness and fulfillment,
but don’t necessarily require huge bank accounts.

In any case, it’s important for people to get clear on what they truly
do want – what really inspires them in a powerful way – so that they can
understand what “wealth” really means to them.

A.H.C: Was it during the time of writing the book that you started the
Bill Phillips “Body For Life Challenge”?

B.D.: Actually, the Body For Life Challenge came 2 years BEFORE I was
doing any of this work, but it was an key part of my journey, because it
was during this time that I learned a tremendous amount about what drove
people to successful results in ANY area of their lives.

A.H.C.: Isn’t this when you really started helping people achieve their
goals? Because at this time you created a website / forum for people to
come to and participate in their own “body revolution” at correct?

B.D.: Bodychangers was the result of following my newly discovered
passion for fitness – and moreover, what were the keys to success in
taking on a physique transformation. After all many more people TRY to
change their bodies dramatically than actually succeed. Bodychangers was
a study in what the successful people did. After a while I began to see
patterns among the most successful that transcended simply the diet and
exercise program they chose.

The most successful and inspiring stories on the Bodychangers web site
came from people who had an extremely powerful “WHY” with regards to
their reasons for taking on the transformation. I saw that when people
got clear that being more physically fit was going to to help them live
the lives they truly wanted – to allow them to truly be the best and
most powerful version of themselves possible – their results far
outweighed those who took on an exercise program to simply have their
jeans fit better or something similar.

A.H.C.: So, not only were you working on your body with the Bill
Phillips Challenge, but you were also learning more about personal
development in general. How did your work with BodyChangers eventually
evolve into the work you do now with Boundless Living?

B.D.: After about 2 years of interviewing around 150 people about their
physique transformation stories, I was starting to feel myself burn out
a little. I was feeling that there were common themes among the
interviews and that even if I never did another interview, the site
would still be able to help people the way I intended it to.

At the same time, I felt called to expand what I was teaching outside of
simply the fitness area – because what I learned from all those
interviews was the importance of getting clear on what inspires you –
what you’re passionate about – and who you truly want to be. It was
during that time that the name “Boundless Living” popped into my mind,
and I knew then that I wanted to start making a difference for their
lives as a whole.

When I finally had the “ah-ha” moments in my own life as to why things
weren’t working, and as a result created the Wealth Beyond Reason
program, I knew it was time to bring my work with BodyChangers to a
close and focus my attention on my work with the Law of Attraction and
following ones passion.

A.H.C.: What are some of the books that were the biggest influencers on

B.D.: The book that turned it all around for me was David Cameron
Gikandi’s “A Happy Pocketful of Money“. It’s an amazing study of how our
lives in this Universe work, and discusses the principle of “wealth
consciousness” (something I was definitely struggling with prior to
reading the book.)

I was able to gain an understanding of the power of our thoughts and
beliefs on a quantum level and that made all the difference for me.

Another book which I read YEARS prior that opened my mind to all kinds
of possibilities was Richard Bach’s “Illusions“.  In my mind that’s
must-reading for every human.

A.H.C.: Bob, you work with people from all types of different
socioeconomic backgrounds, in fact, you work with clients from different
parts of the world…what are some of the common denominators that you
find are holding people back from what they want to have (and what they
can have) in life?

B.D.: For the most part, it all boils down to the limiting beliefs we
have. These beliefs come from all sources: parents, friends, society,
television…the list goes on and on. Different cultures have their own
sets of beliefs of course, but wherever there is a belief in limitation
that is passed down to us, it creates something called “resistance” in
us as humans. This resistance is real energy that has an impact on what
we can experience in our lives. The scientific aspect of this
conversation gets a little deep, but suffice it to say that if we want
to attract anything in our lives – be it money, a healthy body, or a
great relationship – our belief system has to be in alignment with
having that or we will always run into problems realizing our goals in
these areas. This is actually what most of my work is about.

A.H.C.: What are three key things that people should know if they want
to transition out of the daily grind of a corporate job and start a
business of their own?

B.D.: First, they have to get super clear on what they want to do and
WHY they want to do it…and that reason should go beyond just “making
money.” They need to identify how, through this business, they are going
to creatively express themselves and their passions…as this is the
best way to assure they bring their most powerful and focused energy
into their work.

Secondly, they need to start recognizing what limiting beliefs they
might have lurking under the surface as it pertains to success in
whatever business they take on. Some of these beliefs may be very
obvious such as “I don’t know anything about running a business”, but
other beliefs run a lot deeper and may take a different kind of “work”
to deal with. Again, that’s what I help people do every day. It’s
absolutely essential.

Finally, they’ve got to be committed to taking constant inspired action.
This doesn’t necessarily mean they have to “work hard” (though it may
look from the outside that they ARE working hard.) It means that they
learn to follow their own intuitive nudges in terms of what action to
take when. If you’ve never done this before, it can take some practice,
but learning to trust and follow your intuition is what makes any
endeavor fun and seemingly effortless.

A.H.C.: Where can our readers find out more about you, the work that
you do, and the coaching that you offer?

B.D.:  Virtually everything I know I put into the Wealth Beyond Reason
program, which can be found at, but we
also have smaller programs that address certain aspects of “living your
life by design” that can be found at – I
also post regular updates on Twitter, FaceBook, and YouTube.

A.H.C.: Is there anything else that you would like to add?

B.D.: Human beings have enormous creative potential. However, we’ve
learned far more limitation that possibility. However the limitation
we’ve learned to a great degree is an illusion that seems real because
of the impact those limiting beliefs on our ability to “attract” the
experiences in our lives that would make us feel more powerful. You can
do yourself no greater service that to take the time to decide what you
truly want your life to be, learn a bit about the energetic nature of
the Universe and your role in it, and commit to taking consistent
inspired action in the direction of your most inspired dreams.

A.H.C.: Bob, thank you for taking the time to speak with us today.

B.D.: Totally my pleasure.

Body Language Expert & Life Coach - Mark Edgar Stephens

Our intertivew today is with Communication and Body Language Coach/Expert, Mark Edgar Stephens.  Mark first made a name for himself on TLC’s (The Learning Channel) relationship and dating series, “Date Patrol” as a Communication and Body Language Coach.  During this time Oprah Winfrey called Mark an “authority on love” when she invited him to aa guest expert to help, “The Oprah Winfrey Shows” select a deserving couple for a Million Dollar Wedding Giveaway.
For two seasons, Mark then went on to work with and help families in conflict as the Host, Expert, and Life Coach on HGTV’s, “Under 1 Roof” series.  Mark was also the Body Language Expert that helped contestants on NBC’s game show, “Identity”.

You can read more about Mark and his work at his website – You can also follow Mark on FaceBook and on Twitter.
Abundant Health Center:  In this day and age of $5.00 a gallon gas prices, high
 unemployment, and people losing their homes what is one of the best things that a
person can do to either maintain or regain a healthy sense of self worth and mental calmness?
Mark Edgar Stephens:  I strongly suggest breathing deeply, laughing out loud, breathing
deeply again, laughing out loud again, breathe some more, and then laugh some more!!!
Truly, beyond lengthywords and lofty concepts, I’ve found the simplicity of breathing deeply
and laughingoften seems to turn perspectives around no matter the situation that arises. Both
activities bring more oxygen into the body and into the brain, releasing the endorphins that
make us feel a natural high, regardless of gas prices, unemployment numbers, or housing
difficulties. The recipe could read like this: Breathe deeply, laugh out loud, and then
repeat, again, and again, again for the rest of your life. I use this recipe often in my own
AHC:  How important is a “healthy” attitude?
MES:  A “healthy” attitude is EVERYTHING. We experience what we believe to be true for us.
A healthy attitude includes being grateful for everything no matter how it shows up in our
lives, finding laughter even in the toughest of situations, loving fully and out loud, and
forgiving ourselves when we forget to do the first three things I mentioned above.
AHC:  Mark, you’re known as the, “Look For The Blessing” guy, how does someone look for the
blessing in what they may perceive as a failure or tragedy?  Also, what are some of the benefits
from taking the time to Look For The Blessing?
MES:  There is a blessing in everything that happens to us, in everything we perceive, and in
every moment of life. It is our responsibility and our right to live in the blessing. Failure
and tragedy are both opportunities to question our ego’s need to keep us in a fearful
place. When we believe that things “out there” in life are bigger than we are, we become
fearful and feel small and disempowered. Using the same amount of energy to find what
good comes from each event, situation, and perception is the opposite. We become
stronger and feel better when we can see that life is simply a series of changes. Moving
with change as a blessing, no matter what form that change may take, is infinitely more
powerful and beneficial than lying down in the misery of a victim mentality. Finding the
blessing in every situation is like fueling the car for a long trip. It creates peace of mind
for the long drive ahead and allows the mind to see new possibilities that may not have
been visible before the perceived failure or tragedy.
AHC:  In your book, “Who Are You Choosing To Be?” you tell the story of losing your
wallet, along with your money, credit cards, and identification right before your first
appearance on, “The Oprah Winfrey Show”.  Would you mind sharing with us how you found
the blessing in this and how you found a calmness for yourself in an extremely stressful and
frustrating situation?

"Who Are You Choosing To Be?" by, Mark Edgar Stephens

MES:  I was nervous about appearing with Oprah Winfrey as an “expert” in my field. At the
time, Oprah was the biggest talk show on television. I wondered if I really had the goods
to appear alongside internationally recognized authorities to do the job being asked of
me. I was questioning my worth. When my wallet and money went missing hours before
the show appearance, I panicked. I called my coach at that moment and he started asking
me the questions that helped me to turn my perceptions around. With his help, I was able
to realize that my worth was not in my wallet. My identity was not in my wallet. My
nervousness disappeared. I knew that even without any identification or money, I was
still Mark. My worth and value were NOT outside of me, but very much inside of me.
Without the theft of my wallet, I may not have had this realization. I went on to have one
of the best television appearances of my life. It was truly a great blessing.
AHC:  I have heard you say before, “When in doubt, BREATHE!”  What exactly does that mean?
MES:  Breathing is the simplest thing that we do. We do it automatically and without thought.
However, when we add consciousness to our breathing, it has the ability to slow down
our out of control thinking, bring greater amounts of oxygen into our bodies, instill a
sense of calm, and allow inspiring thoughts to flow into our minds. Deep, deliberate
breathing is the key to instantaneous emotional relief.
AHC:  Is this the same as, “Deliberate Breathing”?  Would you mind explaining for our
readers what exactly Deliberate Breathing is, how they can do it, and the benefits that
they will get?
MES:  Deliberate Breathing, as I describe it, is a three-breath process. The first breath
identifiesany tension or discomfort in the body. The second breath focuses upon the identified
area without judgment or intention other than to breath into the area identified. The third
breath is a free breath that allows awareness to move through the body. The result of this
three-breath process is that without any effort, the area of the body that was seeking
conscious awareness (ultimately, physical pain and discomfort are bodily
communications asking for recognition of a misalignment of thought and/or emotion)
becomes less tense and more relaxed. Subsequently, the entire body and mind release
tension and allow a greater flow of oxygen into the respiratory system. With the
increased intake of oxygen, the mind clears allowing moments of unexpected inspiration
and possibility to follow.
AHC:  Mark, over the years you have worked with a lot of clients.  You’ve had some extremely
 successful companies bring you into their businesses for coaching and you’ve also had personal
clients that are extremely high achievers and you’ve gotten results for these people.  For our
readers what are five actions that they can start doing today to move their lives in the direction
they want and start achieving their hopes, dreams, and goals?
MES:  It is interesting that the five actions I suggest are not the usual steps you might find in a
business achievement manual. Nonetheless, what I know is that an increased sense of
love, gratitude, forgiveness, laughter, and appreciation are the five keys to achieving any
goal that is in alignment with true satisfaction and success. Success and goal
achievement mean nothing if they are not accompanied by these five daily, lifelong
actions. Love is the primary key for any sense of achievement. Without it, nothing is
worth doing. With it, everything has a sense of purpose. A sense of gratitude for all
things that appear in your life leaves no room to look for lack. Forgiveness of self and
others, allows you to move forward out of blame, shame, and guilt (big obstacles to
happiness and satisfaction). Laughter is the antidote for sadness, anger, and regret.
Active appreciation is the action that rallies others to your cause and creates enthusiasm
in everyone you meet. Without these actions, there is no goal or achievement worth
pursuing. Recently, someone asked me my definition of success and I said, “to laugh
hard and out loud at least once everyday.” I know what it is like to NOT do so. I
wouldn’t trade the experience of hearty laughter for any amount of money, award, or
accolade in the world … and I mean that.
AHC:  Your book, “Who Are You Choosing To Be?” came out a couple of years ago and
was very well received, I have to ask, when is your next book coming out and can you
give us an idea of what it will be about?
MES:  Ah, the next book … that is an interesting question. I’ve played with the idea of
everything from a book about body language to a book about following creative nudges
to a book titled, “The Big Hug.” At this moment, I’m not actively working on a new
book. Whatever the next book may be, I am sure it will have a lot of humor and laughter
in it. If it hasn’t been clear from the previous questions, laughter is of paramount
importance in my life. It has the ability to go above and beyond words and heal on a very
primal level. For anyone reading this, what book do you think should find its way into
the universe. Give me a creative nudge. Let me know what you’d like to read about that
is of a “feel good” nature, and I’ll write it. Deal?
AHC:  What other projects are you currently working on?
MES:  Currently, I appear with Dr. Drew on HeadLine News analyzing the body language of
persons of interest in the media. Dr. Drew is a great guy and I really enjoy my
appearances on HLN (HeadLine News). I will be appearing on a new television talk show called, “Broad
Topics” with three very interesting women in late April. I don’t yet know the air-date. I
am teaching public speaking and body language workshops in Los Angeles, and currently
working on a relationship curriculum for a one-day seminar with a friend who is a
psychotherapist. We have different points of view that complement one another nicely.
AHC:  Is there anything else that you would like to add?
MES: For anyone interested in bringing me in as a speaker, facilitator, or workshop leader in
communication, body language, public speaking, relationships, or human behavior,
please don’t hesitate to contact me directly through my website, I always enjoy presenting this material about which I am
so passionate to all sorts of groups. And, finally, I am working on a somewhat “secret”
project. It is a very funny, hybrid documentary/reality series for the web. The
entertainment industry calls it a “mockumentary.” Basically, we are taking a very big
poke at my work in reality television and on-camera therapy. I can tell you I am laughing
out loud every day we are filming. This project has taught me that if you can’t laugh at
yourself, then you’re missing a lot of good laughs. I don’t know when it will be released,
but you can bet I will be posting on FaceBook and Twitter when the time comes.
AHC:  Mark, thank you for your time and insights.
MES:  You’re welcome.
