Proctor Gallagher Institute (PGI) operates in the United States and Canada, and we support consultants and conduct business all over the world. For over forty years, PGI (previously Bob Proctor Seminars) has been helping people understand who they are, what they are capable of, and how to live the life they really want.

PGI’s teachings are built on the premise that we all have a power flowing in and through us that is far superior to any condition or circumstance around us. We show our audience how to use their thoughts to direct this power to achieve whatever results they choose in this lifetime—earn more money, enjoy better health, create harmonious relationships, or start a business.


Purpose and Vision

To significantly improve the quality of lives globally by elevating the quality of thoughts individually.


We believe that, rather than hammering information into our heads, education is becoming aware of and developing what we already have inside. We teach our audience how the mind really works, and how to expand and develop it to create extraordinary living for themselves and others.

Proctor Gallagher Institute is among the largest and most successful brands in the world in the personal development business.

This was a turning point not only in Bob’s life, but also for the entire personal development industry.

No other personal development company has the longevity, rich lineage and two powerful, but totally opposite, masters of the mind—Bob Proctor and Sandy Gallagher—who have joined forces to change millions of lives around the world.

Two Master Thinkers, One Mission
Bob and Sandy have totally different backgrounds, educations, upbringings and paradigms. They are also from different generations, different genders and have different point of views.

Since 1961, Bob has gone from down and out to changing the world – Bob was a high school dropout who found himself jumping from low paying job to low paying job; he was never able to get ahead.
At age 26, he had a steady career as a fireman. He was earning $4,000 dollars a year, and he owed $6,000. He couldn’t see himself ever getting out of debt or living an abundant life.
Then something amazing happened …

A man named Ray Stanford gave Bob the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, and gave him very specific instructions: “Do EXACTLY as Napoleon suggests in this book, and you’ll be a success.”

At the time Bob didn’t fully grasp or believe that he would be a great success, but he believed Ray believed it. So he took a step forward and followed Ray’s instructions. This was a turning point not only in Bob’s life, but also for the entire personal development industry.

Bob took the book seriously. It was the first book he had ever read and he followed it to a ‘T’ … studying it every day, and applying it to his life – he was obsessed with this new information.
Bob saw an opportunity cleaning floors and he bet on himself. He quickly became a successful business owner earning 6 and then 7 figures operating internationally.

Completely baffled by the truly dramatic changes that had occurred in his life, Bob had to answer the burning question – WHY? Why did his life change? How could someone with no education and no business experience be creating such success?

He knew if he could answer this question, he could share it with others so they could do the same – and he set out on a new journey.

He studied the mind, human potential and himself with some of the greatest minds the world has ever known. In addition to continuing to read Think and Grow Rich every day, Bob worked shoulder-to-shoulder with Earl Nightingale and Lloyd Conant for five years.
After 9 years of study, Bob found his answer. And in doing so, he had a key to unlock a treasure chest of success and fulfillment for people around the world.

In 1973, Bob launched Bob Proctor Seminars, one of the first seminar and training companies.

Then in 2006, there were two major developments. The first was the release of the movie The Secret, which Bob starred in. The movie changed the lives of millions. Bob was quickly spotlighted on popular TV broadcasts like Ellen and Larry King.

The second development was Sandy Gallagher.

Bob’s Teachings Change a Genius Business Woman’s Life

Sandy went from ‘having it all’ to fulfilling her purpose –

Sandy was a successful banking attorney earning in the upper six figures. She handled billions of dollars in mergers and acquisitions, was an adviser to boards and executives of Fortune 500 firms. By most standards, she appeared to have it all and was the vision of success.

Although she was very successful, Sandy wasn’t fulfilled and she didn’t have the time freedom she longed for.

One day Sandy found herself at what she thought was going to be a leadership/business seminar that was actually a Bob Proctor The Science of Getting Rich event. At the time, she didn’t even know who Bob Proctor was.

While she at Bob’s event, Sandy’s entire life changed in a moment. A moment of clarity where she realized she was completely missing a crucial part of a fulfilling life – purpose.

When Bob asked the audience to write their goal in their binders, Sandy wrote in the tiniest

little text:
I want to create a program with Bob Proctor to bring into the companies I have worked with for 3 decades, I want to be in the inner circle of this great company and be Bob’s closest advisor.

Fast-forward to today and Sandy is not only Bob’s closest adviser, she’s the Co-Founder, CEO and President of the Proctor Gallagher Institute.

She not only created a program to bring into corporations, she’s created multiple programs with Bob and has more on the agenda for the coming years. Her life is full and she’s living her purpose by helping millions of people around the world with the very best information available.

Bob Proctor | Chairman & Co-Founder

To millions of people across the globe, the name Bob Proctor is synonymous with success.  Long before his role in the movie The Secret sent him into the realm of superstardom, he was already a legendary figure in the world of personal development. His insights, inspiration, ideas, systems, and strategies are the dimes on which countless lives have spun — the sparks that have ignited career transformations, personal epiphanies, inner awakenings, and the creation of million-dollar fortunes the world over.

Bob is the heir to the legacy of the modern science of success that began with the financier and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie’s great challenge to the young reporter Napoleon Hill to discern a formula for success fueled Hill’s creation of the renowned book Think and Grow Rich.

Upon discovering this book at the age of 26, Bob’s life changed in an instant, leading him on his own quest for the secrets of success. That quest led him to Earl Nightingale, the famed “Dean of Personal Development” who soon became Bob’s colleague and mentor. Today, Bob continues to build upon and spread the remarkable teachings of these three giants.

As a speaker, author, consultant, coach, and mentor, Bob Proctor works with business entities and individuals around the world, instilling within them not only the mental foundations of success and the motivation to achieve, but also the actionable strategies that will empower them to grow, improve, and thrive in today’s ever-changing world.

Through the Proctor Gallagher Institute, Bob, Sandy Gallagher, and their team teach the principles, fundamentals and strategies that help people and organizations create the results they want in life.


Not long ago, Sandy Gallagher was an esteemed attorney with a successful 21-year career in banking law. She regularly handled billions of dollars in mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, and other big-ticket transactions, and was an advisor to boards and top executives of Fortune 500 firms.

But then an encounter with personal development authority Bob Proctor set Sandy on a new path that would change her life.

Through Bob’s teachings, Sandy finally understood the “why” behind all of her success and she knew then that her next mission in life was to teach others how to do what she had done. And she became determined to join forces with Bob in order to fulfill that mission.

Sandy created and ended up collaborating with Bob on a program called Thinking Into Results, which is the most powerful corporate transformational program of its kind.

Today, as the co-founder and CEO of the Proctor Gallagher Institute, Sandy and Bob are helping people all over the world transform their lives through powerful coaching, training, and consulting programs and seminars that show people how to create the life they really, really want.
