Early Life and Earl Nightingale
Bob had a lot of difficulty growing up – he didn’t know exactly what to do with his life, actually becoming a high school dropout. Trying to search for what his next step would be, his search for inspiration led him to read the Napoleon Hill book entitled “Think and Grow Rich”. At the age of 26, he started working for Nightingale-Conant, which was headed by Earl Nightingale, a radio personality and author, mainly focused on motivation, having a meaningful existence as well as developing the human character. He headed the radio adventure series “Sky King”, and he is the author of “The Strangest Secret”, considered one of the greatest motivational books of all time. Bob moved to Chicago, and was mentored by Nightingale who helped shape him to the person he would become.
Rags to Riches
Proctor soon became the Vice President of Sales at Nightingale-Conant, and his ability saw him quickly climb through the ranks. The group was mainly responsible for teaching self-development and growth. Eventually, he got the idea of starting his own similar company which would deliver motivational lectures and encourage self-help. With the connections he made during the start of his career, he started his company which steadily grew in numbers especially in Canada as well as in the US, and soon he was travelling around the world.

He’s also appeared in television shows such as “Larry King Live”, promoting creativity, imagination, and realizing the path to your best self.
He authored the book entitled “The Secret”, which would lead to the film of the same name which consists of interviews designed to teach Bob’s belief on the Law of Attraction. Prominent figures of the topic are shown in the film including Michael Beckwith, Jack Canfield and Bob. The film had its buzz during the time of its release, and was even promoted by Oprah Winfrey, and later UFC Champion Conor McGregor. However, critics also claimed the film focused too much on questionable wealth enhancement, and other critics claimed that the film felt like it was indoctrinating viewers into a cult.
