Namaste, and welcome to another edition of Live Love Engage. And I have a delightful guest with us today.
We’ve already been sort of getting into the interview, but, uh, I’ll, I’ll bring her on right now and welcome Judy Balloff to live love engage. Happy to be here. Was looking forward to it for a long time. Yeah. Well, I’m excited, especially, as I said, we’ve been already before, before all of you got to, to watch and listen.
we’ve been kind of getting in there. So let me let share with you a little bit about this lovely woman and, what she’s all about and. Why I wanted to be able to talk with her and, and share our conversation with you today. So, uh, Judy has more than two decades of experience in the financial services sector.
She’s been responsible for business development and portfolio management of privately held companies from start-ups to middle market. She’s also been a senior private banker with Wells Fargo Wealth Management and did retirement planning at New York Life. And in 2021, she published her first book called 365 Days of Abundance, and I think she even has another one coming up too, which we’re gonna talk about in a second.
But I, I thought, let’s, let’s start our interview right there with what prompted you to write this initial book that you came up with? Thank you for asking. I love to talk about it. I was, because of my career in the insurance business I got introduced through the women’s market at my company to a course we could take with Bob Proctor.
It was called, Principles of Prosperity. Hmm. And I don’t know about you, but when I was a young banker, I was probably 35. I read Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill because I was a young mother, trying to pay for braces and bikes and you know, summer camp and I, Think and Grow rich, I wanna be rich. Like that would really help
So I read the book and at the end of it, I was not rich and so I put it on the shelf and didn’t, I don’t even, I think the copy got donated or something, never saw it again. So I was surprised when I was watching the course with Bob Proctor that here this book pops up again. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
And Bob’s suggestion. And I think all of us could take a little kernel from this and use it in our own. He said, Watch each lesson. So it was covering the 13 principles of that book, which that’s what there are. he said re, watch every video. They were like 25 or 30 minutes long. Watch every video about that principle every morning for a week.
Hmm. So it takes you, you know, three months to get through the whole thing. But what that did is you picked up something new every time you listened to it. And what I found in it was this, once in a while, oblique reference to the universal laws that caused me to start research. I asked my study group at, at my company, I said, Have any of you heard of the universal laws?
And nobody have is said, Nah. Well, I mean kind of. Sort of, but not really. Yeah. So I said, I’m gonna look up what they are. So I looked them up and typed them up in a neat little list for my whole study group, and they all said, Oh yeah, thank you. But it had really piqued my interest. I had this hunger to know what they were, where they came from, why they’re important.
And as I did that study through 2020, remember Covid happened March 13th, 2020. And so I was working from my home office and so every time I had spare time, I’d be, I got, books started stacking up around me on the floor. Do you ever do that? Like stacking up on the floor? Cause there’s no room on the shelves.
And I was totally amazed I, I, I couldn’t believe what I was reading. I kept seeing references back to the holy scriptures or back to the 13 principles that Napoleon Hill, like what you find is everything is beautifully connected in this spiritual mysterious way. Mm-hmm. which is so marvelous. It can keep you full of gratitude every day.
So I got up on January 7th, 2021 and I said to my husband, cuz I’m the early riser, and he was kind of watching the news in bed, you know, like waiting to get up and I said, David, I just got this idea. I wanna keep these principles and universal laws in my head and heart Every day. somebody should write a book.
That has a daily, you know, like you could keep up with yourself, right? And then of course I walked downstairs to get breakfast and I heard this little voice say, you could write the book. I love it when those voices talk to us. That’s something my book came about, You should write a book about love. It’s like, yeah, yeah.
I dunno. So I called my daughter in Spain, who’s an editor that by career, that’s what she is. Oh, nice. And I said, so Taylor. If I wanted to write this, I got this idea and she had, I had told her about being in the Bob Proctor class and stuff, so, so it wasn’t new information to her. I said, This is the book I wanna write.
I already have the, the formula. I know what it’s gonna look like, yada, yada, yada. And she said, Well, if you wanna finish in time for Christmas sales, you would need to write three posts a day every day. So, At that point, I was full-time at my company. I was trying to make a really high level to get to go on this big fancy trip that they canceled, of course, because of Covid.
But whatever. I won the trip. I just didn’t get to go. and so I said, Okay, so I will get up and I’m not an early riser. See, when you have a definite purpose, you will do anything to accomplish it. Mm-hmm. anything, you really will. Oh yeah. And I got up at five 30 every morning, even on vacation. In this beautiful resort, went out on the porch of the, David was sound asleep.
I had set the alarm for five 30, get up and write on my computer for, for two hours until I got my three posts done. So that’s how the book came to be born. And it’s, it’s such a good book. I read it every day. I love that. I love that. And, Yeah, it is interesting. All of these principles and, and we were, we were talking before we got on how, how it seems to, they’re all well, and you pointed out they’re all connected and, and they’re all, do you know Napoleon Hill has an idea, but then they’re, that it’s.
There’s foundations for this in the Bible. And in fact, I, I actually took a course one time at a, at a Unity Church that was called Prosperity for You, and it was really dealing with all of the different times in the Bible where they talk about abundance and things like that. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. so tell me a little bit though, cuz you and I know one of the things we, we wanted to talk about were.
These seven P’s to control your thoughts. And, and I think that’s in, now you decided to write a companion guide or something. So tell me a little bit about that. And this is actually a book by request. Ah, many of the podcasters that interviewed me and we discussed the seven P’s to control your thoughts and here’s why it’s so important.
there was a survey done in the early forties asking peop, a thousand people. If they thought every day. Hmm. They said yes. They thought every day. The second question of the survey was, what do you think about? Hmm. 95% of them did not have an answer. Oh, wow. So this is what the survey said. They said, if you think every day you will be like a giraffe in a field of mice, you’ll be so rare.
8:06 Hmm. That’s a quite a picture if you think of it. It is, yeah. A giraffe and a field of mice. I had to think about it like for two seconds before I got it. I was like, Uh, I’m not sure I get that. But now that I understand it, and the reason that’s true is because 98% of us really live on autopilot every day.
Yeah. We do the same things every day, and it’s not, I mean, paradigms are good and bad. There’s good paradigms. You know how you drive someplace and you don’t know how you got there. Right, Right. It’s a paradigm that your brain built to save you mental energy. Exactly. And we’ll just get you there safely.
There are also bad paradigms, like how we react to, to stressful, sad, depressing. Mm-hmm. irritating situations to people that we don’t like or we don’t feel like us, like we have autopilots set up. There’s paradigms for everything. Yeah. And some of the work you do when you start studying these principles is you start examining your own paradigm.
And doing the work on them. And that’s how I developed the seven steps. And as I talked about them on podcasts, podcasters would say, Are you gonna put that in a book or something? I would love to use that with my kids. because think of when we’re raising children, how hard it is to teach them to control their temper, to not bicker or to be nice to the kid at school they don’t like.
Right. These are, these are character qualities that we as parents need and want to pass on to our children in the next generation. So I called my daughter and I said, again, my editor daughter, I said, What’s the shortest book you can write? Cause I knew the seven principles wouldn’t. It wouldn’t be a 400 page book, like 365.
Right? And she said you have to do 28 pages, Mom. She said, So type it up. And she said, If we need to put quotes or fillers or something to get you to 28, we actually got to 32. It worked out well. And there’s space in the book to like do some of the homework. There’s writing spaces, you can do some of the homework.
So it, the book was really specifically written for the podcast men and women who said, If you ever put that in a form where I could use it with my kids, tell me about it. I’ll buy it. Wow. So that’s why I did it. Awesome. But I’m suspecting that it’s not just cuz people might think, Oh well this is just a book for kids.
But I’m thinking that, Oh no, no, not at all. Right. have you ever been in heavy traffic and seen road rage? Mm-hmm. It’s pretty scary when you see somebody jump out of their car and run over the next car and start screaming at them and you’re the car behind and you’re like Please don’t pull out a gun and shoot somebody I Right for that.
It’s, it’s a Self-control is a really, really, I mean we, our parents called it self-control. I thought, I call it now thought control. Mm. Because you. We are not really living. We shouldn’t be living by our emotions. We are, but we shouldn’t be. My son is an Army vet. he was in the Iraq war, got medevac home to Walter Reed, jumped outta planes and broken every bone in his body, and he had really bad PTSD.
And that’s 12 years ago. So when I started writing my book, Gloria and I started talking to him every day about. He was going through a really bad spell where he’d lost a job and he couldn’t find one, and money was tight. And, and many young people go through this often, and I said, Graham, you know that you are the one that’s deciding to be that sad and depressed, that you don’t have to be the way. he goes.
Mom, I can’t control my, my emotions mom. I cannot control my emotions. Mm. I said, Oh, yes you can. And so I started regular. Reading him affirmations and pieces from the book and we worked on it and worked on it. Graham does not let, That’s my son. He no longer lets his emotions control his day. It’s an amazing, amazing, if that’s the only blessing that I ever get out of writing this book that will be worth it to have, because I went through the last 12 years of the anger and the temper fits and the depression, and for many times he’d go down the rabbit hole and drink.
Now he, he’s sober now, so that’s, that’s not his solution anymore. But he still was letting his emotions run his day, which many of us do. Yeah. Oh, well that’s a blessing that you’ve been able to help him. No, it’s, it’s a wonderful blessing. I’m very grateful for. Absolutely. Can you share with us like what are, and I’m sure all of them are equally important, but what would be, let’s say, maybe the, if you had to pick one that someone could maybe even start implementing today, which, which, which P would it be if you would indulge me if I can go through them quickly so you’d understand where the one we talk about would be.
Sure. Yeah. So I tell people to use this. Try using it first in a stressful situation. That’s like bad traffic, something not high on the level of things that you don’t wanna screw up. Right? Right. So let’s say you’re in traffic, the car cuts you off without their blinker. On normal, your normal reaction would be to pound the steering wheel.
They’re like, Oh, oh, can you not use your term signal? I can’t believe, you know. And if you’re a person that swears, you’d probably say a few cuss words on the on the way. Right so here’s my suggestion that when that happens, number one, powerful breaths, take three of them.
That activates your parasympathetic nervous system, which is gonna calm you down a little bit. Mm-hmm. if that doesn’t work, Oh, I don’t have it on my wrist today. I usually wear a rubber band whenever I’m on a podcast. When I was teaching myself to get off autopilot, I wore a rubber band in my wrist and I snapped it whenever my thoughts went the wrong way.
So you’re in the car, Pull the rubber band, second P. Yeah, same thing. It’ll center you in your body cuz it’ll hurt a little bit. Yeah. And you’ll go, Oh, I’m not that kind of person. I don’t wanna cuss and swear and pound the steering wheel. That’ll just stress me out. Number three, prayer. There are no atheists in fox holes.
But if you’re not a person of faith, you just believe in talking to the universe, you can still do that. Help me have a sense of humor. Help me see the other drivers. Help me to be calm. Mm. And if that doesn’t work, patience. Count to 10 really fast. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. All three of these can be done in less than five seconds.
The big ones, the last three are the ones you work on. You can start with you, the question you asked, the ones you can start working on now. Number five is positive mental attitude. Mm-hmm. Napoleon Hill actually told us that he believed a positive mental attitude was the number one character quality to bring you success in life.
He didn’t even say happiness, he said success. Yeah. That’s pretty interesting. and what can you do to develop a positive mental attitude? You can read Judy’s book, you can read the Bible, right? You can start a gratitude journal. Mm-hmm. all of these things rewire you to be a positive person to look at. And learning the universal laws will really help you be positive because the universal law of relativity is a really.
Kicker like, because it basically says to you, nothing’s bad, nothing’s good. Everything’s neutral. Things have meaning because we give them meaning. Mm-hmm. That still blows my mind every time I use it. I know. Number six is pattern practice. What pattern practice is, is rehearsal, literally. So pick two or three situations where you tend to, maybe it’s talking about politics with one of your friends or children or colleagues.
Maybe it’s traffic. Maybe it’s you and your spouse have this same argument over and over and over and over, and it’s a trigger for you. So write it down, write down these three things. Then think about how would I like to react? What would really make this better? And then rehearse that. Mm, when this happens, I’m gonna do this.
When this happens, I’m gonna do this. And the last one is paradigm shifts. Now this is actually gigantic and it’s going to take time. It took me a while and I was working with my mastermind group, which is also a principal in Think and Grow Rich. I was working with my mastermind group and we were helping each other identify our paradigms.
Cuz some of our paradigms can be, Many of us who grew up in Christian homes have really difficult paradigms about money we need to let go of. Mm. Did your father say this? My dad said money doesn’t grow on trees. Or he said, Turn that light off. I’m not made of money. Like everything is about a lack. Yeah, exactly.
It wasn’t about abundance. That’s a paradigm and we don’t think it’s affecting us. But it is, if we don’t shift that paradigm to being one that serves us instead of hurts us. Right. So that’s a quick going over of the seven Ps and obviously the little, the quickie little book has them expanded and some examples there in some places to do some work on it.
I like that. So why should listeners do what you’re suggesting? What do you think is a real ultimate benefit of doing this? The ultimate benefit is to live a life of peace and abundance. It’s why I named the book what I did when I was in the fourth month of writing every morning at five 30 in the morning, I was sitting at the desk and all of a sudden this feeling flooded my body, and I said, I don’t even care if I make a lot of money doing this.
I am so happy. That is the definition of abundance. Mm-hmm. to be that happy, to be totally satisfied with where you are at this moment. And it’s also learning these principles and applying ’em to your life means that you’re gonna live today, not yesterday. Not tomorrow. And it’s, it’s freeing. It’s just makes you free.
Free from worry, free from stress. I have not had, I just moved 18,000 pounds of furniture to another town 600 miles away. I wasn’t stressed a bit. I had, I got blisters and my feet hurt so badly, but I was not stressed. I didn’t worry about. Go back to the law of a, one of the universal laws is the law of attraction.
Well, the law of attraction, Gloria, and you can actually find verses in the Bible that actually say this very thing is dependent on the law of vibration. So similar to a radio station, we’re all on a frequency every day. Yeah. So if you’re in the car traveling on a trip and you want the country station, you can’t tune it to the Rock and roll station.
You have to be on whatever the country station is. We’re the same way. We cannot attract into our life the right buyer for our house, the right mate for our life, the right health for our bodies, unless we’re living on that frequency. So vibration is more important than attraction. If you’re on that vibration, you will attract what you need in your life, no more, no less.
So that principle goes with the law of giving and receiving, and the law of giving and receiving says, You will not have anything in your life that you have not already given away. And we should think of that cuz sometimes we’re like, Should I donate there? Yes. Yes. Give away the stuff you don’t use and God will provide Jehovah Jireh, the Lord will provide every day what you need.
Absolutely. And what are those things called that have the sand that runs back and forth? I always forget the name of it. Oh. Uh oh yeah, there’s the, yeah, cuz I mean it’s, we use it as a timer, but there is a better word for it too. Hourglass. Hourglass. Hourglass. Oh, good job. You get a gold star. I don’t know why I always get stuck on that one.
An hourglass. So when I was taking that Bob Proctor course, one of the stu, I took a master class with him after that course. And he just died this last January. I know he was a huge loss, but he did write the forward to my book before he went to the other side. So wonderful. Really wonderful. And he said this, one of the guys in the class, they had a Q and A session at the end, and one of the guys in the class said, I have so many projects.
He was kind of like full of himself. I have so many projects and so many important things to do. I don’t have enough hours in the day. And Bob Proctor and I bought one of these in the. Truck right now, but I have an hourglass that sits on my desk and whenever I get one of those, can’t get this all done.
I just take the hourglass. And that’s what Bob did is he took the hourglass and he said, You see this Mr. Jones? This time hasn’t come yet. Can’t do anything about that. This time is over. Can’t do anything about that. See the neck, see this little neck? That’s the only time you have any control of. Mm-hmm.
So do what you need to do in that moment. To further your definite chief aim, whatever it is, if you make and remember God doesn’t have any time. Mm-hmm. we created time. Absolutely. Yeah. We’re, we’re finite human beings and we need structure. Right. Yeah. But I don’t know what time I will be a famous transformational speaker, but I know I will be at some point.
God, when I am ready And prepared. God will put that in my pathway to speak to the right people at the right time with the good news that he created us to live this kind of life of abundance and peace and joy, and we have attracted to ourselves. Some of the stuff that we’re dealing with in this world. Oh yeah, absolutely.
I mean, and it, and it is, you know, right there in the Bible, you know, what you, what you sow is what you reap, I mean, you know, that’s like, you know, right there basic. But, but they also, that. Yeah. That we are not, you know, don’t, don’t worry about, there, there’s another part in, in the scripture and I, I used to, there was a song I used to sing in choir that would say, Don’t worry about don’t worry, don’t worry about tomorrow.
Because, you know, see the lilies in the field, they don’t care. You know, the birds don’t care. Everybody, you know, we won’t toil or spin. Right. Is that, Yeah, that’s it. That’s it. Yeah. Yeah. And, and the time thing too is, as you said, it’s time is an illusion because I also find that when I am in particular excited about something and, and I’m like, Oh, I wanna get, you know, I’m really happy I’m doing this, then.
You make the time to do it because it’s fun. You’re, you’re enjoying yourself and, and time seems to be a little bit more elastic then, and you can get it done. But when you are like stressed and, Oh yeah, I’ve got all these things to do, frankly, I think time moves slower, then, because you’re, you’re, you’re not in the right vibration.
You’re, you’re too stressed out over it when you could just relax, focus on one thing at a time and, and get it done. Well, and I think tools. I mean, I’ve always been a person that likes to start with a tool like to you. I developed these steps because I needed these steps. I wanted to change. An example is during, remember 2020, there was so many family fights about politics because everybody had a different position on it.
All the building’s burning and like, should people be prosecuted, Like whatever it was. And my youngest daughter, who’s my editor, was visiting me at the time in between their posts cuz her husband teaches for the American school. And we were in the kitchen and somehow we got on the subject of everything that was on the news and we got in a knock down drag out.
There was tears, shouting, anger, accusation. Our husbands were trying to keep us apart in the room. Okay. and she finally stormed outta the house to stay at a friend’s house and didn’t come back for a week. I used my seven P’s and I did a par. My paradigm was to believe I’m right. I’m standing up for my view, the world has to change.
Like I decided I was change. I’m not in charge of the world. I, I know the only power I have is to vote and pray. Yeah. And give, Yeah. I mean, that’s really my new mantra. If somebody says to me, Oh, isn’t Ukraine horrible? I said, It is. It’s just heartbreaking. Like, what are you gonna do about it? I give, I pray and I’ll vote.
Cause I wanna keep a president in office who will take care of countries like that, who are fighting for Rights. But that’s the only 3 things we can do, right? Absolutely. Yep. Yeah. Anyway, so what I did is I said, That’s my daughter. I love her. I want a new paradigm. I wanna shift paradigms. And so now the way our relationship works is if we have a point of disagreement.
We both state our position and we go, go away for a few days, bring back our research to say, Would you read this? Would you read this? And see, we might not come to the center, but we have lost the acrimony and the stress, and the hurt and the tears, and the why do I want that in my life? Right, Right. Why do I want to be fighting with people that I love?
So it’s, it’s such a powerful change. I mean, my life is totally different than it was two years ago, and I’ve always been a basically a happy person. Like I haven’t been a grouchy person, but I gossiped at the water cooler. I had bosses that I was like, I was just like any normal chick, like living through life.
I don’t do any of that anymore. I don’t scream at the people in traffic. I don’t gossip about people. I try and I’m not perfect. Oh, please, please, please. Don’t anybody say voice. She’s full of hers out. No, no, no, no, no. I still fail miserably and have to go back and get forgiveness and forgive myself. Have God ask God’s forgiveness and go forward and you know, I’ll, I’ll go back to my book.
I’ll go back to my Bible. I’ll find a place where that good word is. Absolutely. And that’s what’s great about the fact that you, you have tools, you’ve got resources, and because yeah, we are humans, we are going to make mistakes and that’s okay as long as we keep learning from them. It’s when we just give up that we have a problem.
But if we can just say, Okay, what can I do better next time? let me go. As you say, you know, go, let me find something in the Bible. Let me go back and, and practice and, and I love what you did with, with your daughter to be able to come to that, uh, at least a meeting of the minds, even if it’s not necessarily gonna be in agreement, but at least you can, uh, agree to disagree, as I say sometimes, but at least, at least you’ll understand each other better.
That’s, that’s the first step to anything, so that’s wonderful. Well, she moved me and I actually did move closer. She had me read a book called The Tight Rope, which was about a really poor family from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, I think it is. And, and I didn’t realize how many things the government had done over the years to keep.
Prejudice in operation. And so, not that I can change the government, but it, it was better for me to get an education about some of the stuff I had paid no attention to. And sometimes when, sometimes Gloria, when we’re in the church, we kind of get ourselves in a bubble. Mm-hmm. Oh yeah. And, and, you know, poking the bubble and swimming outside is actually really good for us.
So that we we’re never going to bring people to the side of God and his son. If we aren’t out there talking to people, Yeah, we can’t, We’re not gonna do it by staying in the bubble. So it’s really important. That’s cool. Is there anything else that I should have asked you about that I haven’t that, that you think would be maybe any other important point you wanna leave our audience with before we end today?
Actually, yes. I think many people who listen to podcasts. They’re letting their thoughts run wild while the person’s talking, saying, Oh, she’s different. She survived open heart surgery and five strokes. But it was just a happenstance, and so now she talks about it. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. The statistics on people having open heart surgery at my age at 64 and having five strokes and going back to work and get, having a fabulous career and making half a million dollars from 64 to 69, that’s not what usually happens.
But I’m not special. I just used these tools. God’s Word. Study. Study,the people that studied having better, better thoughts. There’s a whole bunch of people you could study. Joseph Murphy, Florence Scovel Shinn, Bob Proctor, Ralph Waldo Trine, Napoleon Hill, Napoleon Hill. Napoleon Hill Foundation publishes 20 or 30 books with all the other papers they found of Napoleon Hill after he died.
There’s some great, there’s really good things like, yeah, I love a novel sometimes too, and I love a good movie, but Bob Proctor left this kernel for me. I consider him one of my mentors, and he said, Every single day of my life for 60 years, I get up and I have my, and everybody has to have their own morning routine, but the piece of his that I took was I spend 20 minutes every day and I either listen to a recording of Joseph Murphy, or, you know, I can’t, the names just don’t come as fast as they on a talk, on a talk show, but, 20 minutes every day.
So I, I, that’s the books that I took with me for my temporary living. I have 10 of them here and I read 20 minutes a day from something. Yes, I, I read my Bible every morning, but there are, God has inspired people to, to learn and think and write about other things that are actually good for us. So find the thing that’s good and love ways.
and stay away from the thing that destroys turn off the TV once in a while. Because if all that news and negative information is going into your subconscious, that’s what will run your thoughts. Mm, yeah. Absolutely. And that’s what I wanna leave with people is find a way to get control of those thoughts.
It will create the reality you want.
