My mom and dad instilled a great work ethic in me at a young age. I grew up on my uncle’s farm/ranch operation in South Dakota and where he raised cows and hogs and grew oats, barley, and corn. I was used to hard work.
From 1977 to 1986 I worked in the oil fields in Wyoming. I moved to Seattle in 1987 and became a journeyman electrician. In 1991, I proudly joined the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
In 1997 I came to a crossroads in my life while working in Portland, Oregon. I wasn’t happy with the direction my life was headed and didn’t know exactly where or how to start making changes. However, I had a clue that my drinking had to be part of the first steps to changing my life.
December 20, 1997 was the last day I drank alcohol. Once I quit drinking I realized how much influence alcohol had on my thinking as well as my decision-making abilities. It definitely had a negative control over my mind.
I also started my home-based business and met people with a different mind-set. I started listening to the people talk on our training calls, and hearing about the different books they were reading. However, I didn’t have a lot of time to read. Then I discovered cassette tapes and CDs, and started listening to them on my drive to and from work, and during evenings at home after work.
A friend also introduced me to sleep-learning, which is a way of learning by listening to tapes while sleeping. These subliminal tapes played music with affirmations that I could hear with my subconscious mind. As my personal growth expanded, I discovered I had to allow myself to change in order to enhance my life. This was just the beginning of my rewiring, both consciously and unconsciously.

“This writer has introduced you to a myriad of people, bands, music, movies, books, companies and more, but I can honestly say that I have NEVER had the sheer pleasure of introducing anyone more than this next man and his brilliant company.
“Innovative and unique are adjectives that can not be in play for many. In fact, as time goes forward, innovative and unique are hardly used at all anymore. But with Robert Wilson – a man who used his skills, talents, and unbelievable intelligence and creativity to put together a motivational system – he found a way to call out to hearts, minds, and souls everywhere and led them to that ‘almighty dollar’ and that success that they always wanted to achieve. Unique and innovative are literally the ONLY two words in the English language that sum this man up.
“In this introductory article, I am going to give you a brief overview of what Robert Wilson stands for, and how he became the monumental mind that he became. His background is a story of pure heart – which makes it completely understandable why he went forward in life with a heart as large as he owns.”
