As the world increasingly advances in technology and civic society, the day to day problems we face in life become increasingly more complex.
This is why doing even simple things such as going to school, making a friend, or picking a career option is tougher today more than ever. At times like this, motivational speakers come as a beacon of hope and encouragement to many people.
Bloggers, writers, and speakers in the motivational sector have been gaining tremendous popularity over the years, and have been garnering an insane amount of following, thanks to the wide reach of the web.
Be it reading their books, hearing their podcast, or attending a conference by them; those interested in their work will find easier and easier ways to reach out to them.
Even before social media, many popular motivational speakers got their words to us in several different ways.
When it comes to talking about influential speakers, the name ‘Bob Proctor’ has long stood out from the crowd.
The famous motivational speaker has a net worth of $20 million, he is also an entrepreneur, a business counsellor and consultant, a writer, and a teacher.
It has been over 40 years since he has been advising individuals on how to strategize our ideas so that we live the most fulfilling and glamorous lives.
Let me walk you through his early life, his achievements, his ventures, and beyond
Born on July 5, 1934, in Ontario, Canada, Proctor was a high school dropout, and by the age of 26, he had reached a stage where has working several odd jobs trying to make ends meet and wondering where his life was taking him.
It was then when the turning point of his life took place. He came across the book titled Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
It was almost as if the book had found him, because much like many others before him, the words in the book inspired him to such an extent that it served as the motivation he needed to move higher and go bigger in life.
Proctor then went on to open a company of his own that provided cleaning services to corporates, and the company soon progressed from a few thousand dollars every year to $175,000.
His business expanded to numerous cities around the world, including London, Cleveland, Toronto, and Atlanta. He also went on to take a job with author and personal development coach, Earl Nightingale, in 1961.
It was after he started working with Earl that Proctor increased his rank in the society.
He kept getting promoted, and within a very quick span of time, became the vice president of sales.
While still continuing his work, Proctor felt the urge of wanting to share his ideas and start teaching about the human potential and success.
He started with holding motivational seminars across the United States and Canada.
That’s when his career took off in this field, and to this day, Proctor holds the privileged title of being one of the very first experts on the creation of wealth.
If we look at all the material provided by his books and seminars, there’s a lot we will come across that will help us grow. He has a unique quality to instill hope and confidence among his readers and audience.
After delving in motivational speaking, Proctor launched a network of 19 companies that provide a wide range of services in personal development.
Some of the areas they covered were book publishing, seminars, and personal coaching.
After becoming the CEO of Life Success, the popularity of Proctor spread wide and far.
There’s not much we know about Proctor’s personal life except that he is married to Linda Proctor, and the two of them have a son named Brian Proctor.
In 2006, Proctor was seen in the movie The Secret. While being on Larry King Live, he spoke the concept of self-development from his perspective.
He spoke about how we should be on the quest to recognize our best selves and polish that version so that we can walk forward on the road to success.
He also emphasized on the importance of imagination and creativity and how they’re important factors in making us happy and helping us achieve our dreams.
Being a motivational speaker, it’s no surprise that Proctor has an immense variety of inspiring words to share with us all.
Here are some of the most valuable quotes from Bob Proctor that can serve as motivation to all of us:
Bob Proctor has authored many books and also been a part in the creation of several books.
Some of the famous titles that we’ve seen him be a part of include You Were Born Rich (1984), Become a Magnet to Money Through the Sea of Unlimited Consciousness (2006),
It’s Not About the Money (2008), Stop Wishing, Start Winning (with Dean Philpott) (2011), The Infinite Power Within (with Lorie Gannon) (2011), Thoughts Are Things: Turning Your Ideas Into Realities (2014),

Among his numerous achievements, we also know Bob Proctor as one of the leading experts in the Law of Attraction. He continues to teach us about it even to this day.
From talking about how this law works, to the Law of Vibration, Proctor has shared his knowledge with us regarding this subject, trying to tell us how we can implement this law into our own lives.
Bob tells us that if we feel and visualize whatever we want in our lives, we begin to attract it to ourselves.
He goes on to state that there have been several successful people in this world who didn’t know how they would rise to success, but they were certain that they would get there.
He makes us believe that even if we don’t understand the law, we should never reject it, because the law is always active, and we will always attract the way in some way or the other.
The Law of Attraction plays a huge role in all the teachings and seminars of Proctor, and can be found all the way from the 1970s to even his teachings from today.
Proctor Gallagher Institute logo
The Proctor Gallagher Institute is where Bob Proctor and Sandy Gallagher provide life and business coaching to individuals.
Their vision includes trying to improve the quality of everyone’s lives on a global level by improving the quality of individual thoughts.
Sandy Gallagher says her life changed after attending one of Proctor’s seminars. She was a successful banking attorney earlier, but she knew her life’s calling was elsewhere after meeting Proctor, which is when the institute was created.
The institute’s goal includes teaching and empowering the audience, and providing them with products, seminars, services, and events in order to help them understand the laws of the universe.
The institute helps us reach our full potential by using the power of our mind. Two of the most famous programs offered by the institute include “6 Minutes to Success” and “The Science of Getting Rich”.
It’s very clear that Proctor knew exactly what to do in order to bring the audience in. Of the many things required to entice us and get us intrigued, marketing is definitely one of them.
Intelligent marketing is what Proctor applied in order to make himself into a popular brand.
Every business, in fact, needs strong marketing in order to get under the spotlight.
The 6 Minutes to Success program was created to give us a constant dose of inspiration and advice to succeed.
It entails taking steps every single day so that we can improve and get the results we desire. The program sends us a short video on our email every morning.
This video talks about universal laws, relationships, money, health, or anything that can help us attain success.
These videos are meant to not only teach us, but also motivate us to take inspired action throughout the day.
The program aims at us developing efficient habits that can help drive us to the point of success. These videos help us in getting into the proper mindset in order to achieve our goals.
Along with the daily videos, the program also comes with a starter kit, workbook, and an action planner.
Everything has its own positives and negatives. Let me now take you through the pros of cons of Proctor’s 6 Minutes to Success program.
Before we can decide if the program is for us or not, we can go through the free videos available online.
These talk about the various aspects of Proctor’s work, and explain the lessons and concepts that make up the program. If we do decide to go for the program, its starts at an affordable price, which is $29.97 per month for the basic version.
The premium version costs $99.97.
The institute has a great presence in the online world as well. The YouTube channel of the institute has more than 37 million views and over 625,000 subscribers.
The comments section is usually filled with positive reviews, which proves that the program works great for many people. Bob also happens to be a very competent coach.
All his videos are very clear and direct, and we get something useful every day. Anyone who watches them on a regular basis does begin to feel the change gradually.
If we’re a member of the program, we also get the ability to discuss the program with the other group members.
The discussion area of members-only enables us to talk about any problems we could be facing in relation to the course. This discussion group also allows us to join in on some helpful conversations regarding attaining wealth and so on.
The program, however, is not meant for close-minded individuals. It will work for us only if we have a constant desire to bring about improvements in ourselves and our lives, and become successful by living an easier life.
The lack of personal interaction could be a problem for some. If that’s what we want, then we will have to pay extra money to attend the seminars from the Proctor Gallagher Institute.
The program offers no refunds either. Therefore, if for some reason, we might have to discontinue with it, we certainly won’t get our money back.
However, for the programs that are more expensive, there are staggered payment options available that we can go for instead.
This could be one to opt for in case we feel the circumstances might change in the near future.
All in all, Proctor is indeed a genuine person, and his course has helped many individuals in the past. Therefore, we have all the reason to believe that it will help us, too, if we decide to go for it.
