“Bob has passed away and has moved on to the next phase of his eternal journey,” Gallagher wrote in a Facebook post.

“I am so grateful to Bob,” she continued. “Please join me in sending love and light to Bob and his family.”

Proctor’s cause of death has yet to be revealed.

Born on July 5, 1934, Bob Proctor is a self-help author and speaker from Canada.

He is best known for New York Times You Were Born Rich and his role as a consultant in the movie The Secret.

Proctor’s materials have always emphasized the need to have a good self-image in order to achieve success, with lots of content related to the Law of Attraction.

Proctor had low self-esteem and lack of desire as a young player, he left Danforth Tech after sustaining a thumb injury from a hacksaw and had no goals for the future.

At age 26, Proctor was working in a Toronto fire department when he met a man who gave him the book Think and Grow Rich, the first book he had ever read.

Soon after, his life began to change under the influence of this book. To help pay off his debt, he started cleaning the floors and making money.

Proctor went on to found a cleaning services company, which he claims made over $100,000 in his first year despite having no formal education or business experience.

He went out of his way to do more research on the subject after realizing the true value of the book.
