Bob Proctor’s eternal wisdom

The legendary speaker and author Bob Proctor has been and continues to be a great motivation for millions all over the world. An institution in his own self and a great admirer of Napoleon Hill, Bob has been passionately giving himself for the cause of personal development, educating people all over the world. One can only realize the power in his teachings by watching his videos or listening to his audios. Most of his videos are available on YouTube for free.

In 2006, Mr Bob Proctor featured in the blockbuster documentary movie The Secret which featured many other authors and speakers who emphasized upon and discussed about The Law of Attraction. About a decade ago, he co-founded the Proctor Gallagher Institute with Sandy Gallagher – a successful banking attorney in the U.S., and someone who was taken aback when she heard Bob for the first time in one of his seminars in Vancouver (in 2006) and had decided back then to work with him and be his closest adviser.

In his mid-twenties, Bob, with a very little formal education, started a cleaning business and he went on to take his then meager earning of $4,000 a year to over $1,000,000 a year in under 5 years by following his mentor and reading, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, among other steps that he took diligently. He worked closely with Earl Nightingale from 1968 to 1973 at Nightingale-Conant, before starting his own personal development company. Interestingly, Bob Proctor continues to use the same copy of the book, every single day of his life. Now that is dedication and consistency. Bob is now 82 years old but still a student – someone who is passionate and believes in continually learning.

After becoming a millionaire, it took 9 years for Bob to get to know exactly what he had done to transform his fortune. Like he stresses in his videos, he knew he wasn’t smart and intelligent enough to earn so much, so he really wanted to find out what exactly he had done to transform his life. Since then he had decided to dedicate his life to the cause of personal development, by sharing all that he knew. Almost all of Bob’s talks are focused on Paradigms (conditioned way of thinking; why do we what we do) and money. Other aspects like imagination, visualization/visioneering, positive thinking and goal-setting revolve around Paradigms.
