Bob Proctor Gallagher Institute Reviews

Bob Proctor, head of the Proctor Gallagher Institute, is a popular life coach, self help author, sales consultant, and professional speaker.  

Proctor has been in the mentoring industry for over 40 years and was one of the featured instructors in popular "The Secret" DVD.

How Does it Work?

Proctor is a self-help guru with a rag-to-riches life story.  After working many dead end jobs he moved to Chicago to work for his life time heroes Earl Nightingale and Lloyd Conant.  

He worked his way up to V.P. of sales and used the skills he learned there to start his own seminar and sales training company.

For over twenty years he worked with Prudential Insurance, creating custom sales training courses for over 20,000 sales people.  Several years after that Bob Proctor moved on to do the same for Re/max.  

Over the years he has worked with several large corporations and has helped transform their sales staffs.

Through his own company, LifeSuccess Productions, Bob offers a variety of motivational and self help books, videos, and coaching options.  

Most notable titles include: "You Were Born Rich," "Success Puzzle,"The Winner’s Image," "The Art of Thinking," and "The Secret DVD."  Bob's company also offers options to work directly with them as a consultant/coach teaching his materials to others.

Some of his infomercials would have you believe that he's going to teach you how to make money and attract wealth.  However, his materials tends to focus more on improving self qualities and changing people's mentalities.  

That maybe what some people are looking for while others want a concrete framework.

If people are looking for someone to show them how to make money in a formulaic way then Bob Proctor may not be the guy for them.  

However, if you need a spiritual and motivational pick me up then you can listen to and learn from his materials.

Bob Proctor was a phenomenal person who spent countless hours giving.
December 29, 2022

I notice that everyone who has done the Bob Proctor Coaching program has good things to say and two types of people that have negative things to say, one is the person who got “scammed” by someone who sold them thinking into results but this isn’t Bob Proctor scamming them it’s just his material and there’s the people who “can’t afford” the course which is due to the negative and limited mindset that Bobs programs actually shift making you realize that you CAN afford anything you put your mind to and to look at things from a higher perspective which will change everything.

I personally am 3/4 of the way through the Bob Proctor Coaching course that at one time I didn’t think I could afford too but I was wrong. This course is absolutely phenomenal, yes the foundation of the 12 month course are books yo can buy or courses you can buy for less but it’s the structure, the audio files, the workbook and the extra videos that make the course worth every penny and then some.

Bob Proctor is a scam
December 25, 2022

I signed up to become a PGI consultant a few years ago. The price for the program was $32,495.00. I was told I would be easily able to double my income within a year. I left my job because I believed and trusted the organization that is represented by Bob Proctor, the international expert in the personal development field.

After more than one year of a very hard work with no results, I started to wake up.

And I started to understand how unethical and unsupportive this business is, and at what scale Bob Proctor's authority is used to make people pay thousands of dollars for almost nothing.

Today, after a few years of experience and information I got from other consultants, I know that I was one of many who got scammed. If you want to send a testimony, please write to bobproctorisascamatgmaildotcom giving as much information as you can. I will keep you updated with the case.

Don't do it.
April 15, 2022

Please stay away if you want to save your money.

Everything they sell you is already on the web, there is nothing extra or appealing when you buy. The support is ridiculous except when it comes to taking your money.

Don't do my mistake and pursue your self development journey doing your own research.

Bob made his money working as a cleaner, and his fortune while selling his "secrets" which is a bunch of crap. Work hard, never give up and you don't need any of this stuff that they scam you with.

DebbieRaymond May 05, 2023

Dear Naya,

Thank you kindly for providing a review and your feedback. Your time is truly appreciated. Your enrollment from October 2019 into our PG Consulting Program is confirmed and you appeared to be doing quite well even enrolling your first four clients by June 2020!

However, in September 2020 you emailed that your business and your family suffered a tremendous crisis due to events beyond your control. We understood and offered financial and moral support, but we never heard back from you until this review. Perhaps you were unaware of our offer(s) due to the issues you were facing at that time.

It may be that our communications were missed leaving you with a negative view of your experience. We still wish to help! We’d be overjoyed to work with you to get reactivated and complete your training when you are ready.

Please feel free to contact us for individualized support and a full restart in the program if you are still focused on your goal of helping and coaching/teaching others as a business for yourself. We are eager to give you a fresh start as if it were day one of your training.

Amazing teachings
January 30, 2022
This is self help meaning YOU have use the tools to help yourself ! Amazing company and teaching . However if you are a complainer its not for you!

Anna February 01, 2022

Bob Proctor's work is based on an incorrect view on how the mind operates. His ideas are very un-modern, based on the sight available in the 1930's or even earlier. Today we know a lot more about why we think as we do, and the paradigmidea is far too shallow. I would never pay for that. Join a 12step group instead. They teach more or less the same and cost nothing. Of course there are some bits to it that might fit you. But please be careful.

Do the work and it works
January 13, 2022
This program works if you do the work. My fiancée and I started it in August 2021. It has changed our lives like we never thought possible. We are real estate investors. We started not as successful in real estate as we had hoped. Thanks to this program, in two months we made more money than we have in two years. You get out what you put into it.

Proctor Gallaghar Institute is a Big scam - Beware
November 13, 2021

This is a scam. Let me tell you how PGI consultants sell the programs. They would make a group of own people. The PGI consultant will interview his own people who will praise power of thinking into results program and then the PGI consultant will post this video on facebook, youtube, insta and all social media platforms to lure people into buying their program.

Once you pay money, you will not get any help and you will be asked to tell lies on videos so that more people can buy this program. I have been fooled by one such consultant named Manish Jain by using these techniques and i paid USD9000 for the thinking into results program.

The PGI consultant was easily approachable for initial 6 months ( i made payment in 6 months installments ) but after 6 months, it is not easy to talk to consultant. If during sessions, you ask about progress plan, he would tell you to sell TIR program and would tell you that you are failing because of your paradigms.

If you get money from anywhere then " it is because of TIR" If you lose money, you are creating vacuum to get more wealth" as per TIR consultant. I suggest everyone, please dont get fooled by PGI and their consultant. they are here to make money by playing with emotions of people.

Anna February 01, 2022

I share your vision. Unmodern shallow knowledge. Looks more like a sect than anything else. Sorry for your loss.

SusanHill March 13, 2022

I have come to the conclusion that it’s a SCAM.

NajaY April 15, 2022

Yes it is a scam, and they even teach you how to scam people into buying.

Bob Proctor Evil Scammer!
October 1, 2021
The Proctor Gallagher Institute stole $7000 from me and their courses have nothing in them that you can't find for free online. What's worse is that the information in the courses does not work. If you follow his advice you will be so gullible that you will continue to get scammed by every scammer out there. Bob Proctor will brainwash you into a positive feedback loop using NLP sales techniques and it will destroy your life!

Kanwal November 13, 2021

I completely agree with you. PGI and their consultants are part of a scam. Let me tell you how PGI consultants sell the programs. They would make a group of own people. The PGI consultant will interview his own people who will praise power of thinking into results program and they will tell you how a guy’s salary became 500 times and how a business was transformed and then the PGI consultant will post this video on facebook, youtube, insta and all social media platforms to lure people into buying their program. Once you pay money, you will not get any help and you will be asked to tell lies on videos so that more people can buy this program. I have been fooled by one such consultant named Manish Jain by using these techniques and i paid USD9000 for the thinking into results program. The PGI consultant was easily approachable for initial 6 months (i made payment in 6 months installments ) but after 6 months, it is not easy to talk to consultant. If during sessions, you ask about progress plan, he would tell you to sell TIR program and would tell you that you are failing because of your paradigms. I suggest everyone, please don’t get fooled by Proctor Gallaghar Institute and their consultants. Their sole objective is to make money by playing with emotions of people.

SusanHill March 13, 2022

I also completely agree. I’m just glad I did not buy the program.

Sloppy Materials, Sloppy Thinking, False Promises
March 30, 2021

After paying a fortune (thousands of dollars) you then are told you should buy an additional work book for over $100 (otherwise you can print out all the materials yourself). The book is shipped in the mail and has obvious typos, even though the copyright is 2009 - so it's been in print for 11 years with typos.

Here are the specifics - the book is Thinking into Results, Program for Leaders, by the Proctor Gallagher Institute. The typos is on page 14 and reads as follows "You should be able to articulate your goal in once concise sentence."

Having said all this, the program does function like a self-guided cognitive psychotherapy routine which could have some benefits to some people, but googling self-help videos probably will save you a lot of money if you spend the same amount of time you'd otherwise spend on these poorly crafted materials.

Great Inner Game
June 24, 2019
In my opinion and experience Bob Proctor is probably the greatest coach if you are seeking “inner game” self belief change. No one understand it and explains it better than Bob. But if you ant some advices and tips which you can implement in your business then his materials is not what you should be looking for. It all depends on what you need. Mind you, “inner game” and mind set is probably the most vital element for success which can in turn even attract things to tour life.

I am very grateful to Bob Proctor
January 22, 2018

I have studied a lot of personal development but my life did not really change for the better until I started studying Bob Proctor.

I took the paradigm streaming course and I bought every single audiobook he has on Audible. I listened to the books over and over for two years.

My thinking changed and my life has changed too.I managed to land my dream job, all of my relationships have improved, and I no longer have issues with other people.

My finances are better but not where I would quite like to be. I am going to continue to study Bob's material for years to come.

December 23, 2017
This is a scam........

SusanHill March 13, 2022

I agree 100%.

November 11, 2017
i like the review of Bill Illinois. Bob proctor explains the law of attraction the best. however the cost of his programs ridiculously High. i didn't take the course n if i can afford in future i wont mind buying it. Generally speaking we c presentation bfor buying any product n his presentation is good but not clearly defined contents of course, may b sometimes vendors don't like discloser. My stance is, if u can comfortably afford, buy it otherwise buy books instead.

PatrickCvetic December 23, 2017

I really don't give a @#$% if coach book is legit or not. I don't want the $<"(>,% calls

PatrickCvetic December 23, 2017

I wish this butt would stop calling my phone

January 13, 2017
I have spoken to someone about a course re B.P's teachings. I can fully understand it and do "get it" but the cost of this course (admittedly its for 24 weeks)is £3495 Sterling (British Pounds)- my initial thought was that it was very expensive which I thought it would be, then 2nd thought was , well how much do you invest in yourself and your mind. Then I came across these reviews and was shocked at the number of disgruntled customers. I already do have a number of books, CDs, on mindset, goal mapping & life mapping. After thinking about it and reading many of the comments here, and looking at other courses available within my own company, I decided not to take this course on board.

SusanHill March 13, 2022

Good call. I was doing the same and in fact contacted them about doing a purse and was promptly contacted, however after reading reviews I will not be pursuing this program. It is a scam what what I’ve seen and read.

December 14, 2016

Bob Proctor teaching is really poor. It makes you go through a marketing loop that makes you feel there is more to it until you discover that the only thing it is about is paradigm and at the end of the program they try to enroll you in MLM schemes.

Their Matrixx program is a shame : overpriced, of average quality, information you can find on amazon.

Their newsletter is a shame : repetitive and non segmented.

What shocked me is a promo for an event made for an MLM con, Wolfgang Sonnenburg. The email claimed to be a generic success event. And during the event we were surrounded by MLM recruiters everywhere. Not to mention the poor quality of the information taught. Half of it in german translated in poor quality.

Yea, join us for a "free" webinar then you realize you're a seal surrounded by a bunch of killer whales

SusanHill March 13, 2022

I am so glad I found these reviews before I bought the course. It looks very much like a scam.

KimberlyFank March 18, 2022

Unless you invest in the program, I would not say it's a scam. Proctor Gallagher does a great job teaching you how to think differently with clarity, if you are looking for change in your life. It is self study with video and workbook, what you put in for the work you will get more out of it, I have no regret.

I went through the consulting training, For this training, there are weekly and bi-weekly calls as a consultant. I just finished the program and I have no regret.

Bob Proctor clearly gives you his formula for success. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Anyone can buy this book for 5 dollars and transform their life. However most people want the magic pill to success and don't want to work for it. Bob's products are for those who want a coach, either way it is not a magic pill and you must still do work.

I have not purchased anything from Bob Proctor,

but when I was released from prison and had lost everything and had very little support being homeless

in the beginning of the 2014 winter, staying up at George Webbs all night and sleeping at McDonalds during the day, sleeping on floors in drug houses

(one was an efficiency apartment the size of a small living room with 5-6 people sleeping there)

while they did heroine, crack, pills, and rampant depression surrounding me. Along wit one of my friends over dosing and dying.

( I grew up in fostercare until I turned 18 which consisted of living in grouphomes, fosterhomes, and homelessness and eating out of dumpsters and sleeping outside, then later went to prison for 3 years for shooting bullets into a live cafe) much more terrifying experiences.

No parents, mostly homeless men for mentors, lost and hopelessness were my feelings! -with a little bit of hope still burning.

During this time a colleague introduced me to "THE SECRET" and this supported and woke up something inside of me to never quite no matter what.

So... while homeless and with almost NO sleep I walked 3 miles

(with no jacket with freezing winter winds blowing through my bones)

to the college I previously enrolled in (Milwaukee Area Technical College)

and to take an accuplacerror test to finalize my enrollment, and surprisingly scored higher then average.

I kept telling myself I would make it and that the universe(GOD) will provide and so while my cousin and i were sleeping in McDonalds, she was able to get someone to agree to take us in.Yes!!

These people were crazy and borderline hateful (slowly found this out), but I managed to continue my goal which was to score higher than everyone in every course I took.

A few months later I was booted from the crazy people's house(still grateful for their help) moved into an RV I purchased from student loans and received a letter from the college that I made it to the HONOR ROLL (first time in college)

Later, attended 2 colleges at the same time while still homeless(lived in RV for awhile then city ordinances came down on me, so I couch surfed)

found a room in a rooming house and woke up every morning at 6 and ran in Washington Park in the middle of winter everyday.

Now I have a career making $60,000 a year and have built a business, created a mastermind group with a long lost cousin and we are slowly going through all our concepts and dreams together. WE WILL BE MILLIONAIRES!!




I will soon be taking the course myslelf, it will work for Me because I SAY SO, and the UNIVERSE IS LISTENING.

What is $7000 anyway? If you are that scared then go half with someone and take it togetger. But figure it out and never quit no matter what!

November 26, 2016
For those who rated Bob Proctor's material poor...Just just didn't get it. If was because of you paradigm that has not been shifted.

November 22, 2016
Well, you don't have to buy Bob's company's products -that are overpriced by the way- since there are torrents to download them for free, because in my humble opinion knowledge isn't for sale and must be free. So you only get disappointed after buying a product from his company and then finding out that it wasn't very helpful for you. However I think that the information in his products is so valuable and helps a lot. Good luck pals

November 17, 2016

Can someone please give me some idea of the material you go through with this program. More like in what succession. What book/cd/video do they start you on and how are you to use it.

Id be grateful for any help with this

November 12, 2016
Bobs a good guy. He teaches proven principles in an excellent way. You don't have to pay 7000 to benefit from bobs wisdom. I bought an excellent program by him for about 100 whose ideas helped me make many times that amount. I got the program from Nightingale Conant, whose programs are excellent and come with a money back guarantee. If you want an introduction to what bobs about without spending anything look on YouTube.
