If there is one person that stands out in the field of motivating others, Anthony Robbins (a.k.a. Tony Robbins) is considered the most recognized figure in the world. For three decades this passionate soul has shown the world how to create a life of abundance just by mastering that magic muscle between the left and right ear.
Critics mocked his intelligence and cynics detested his approach, but Tony was teaching a great lesson to people who listened. Tony’s basic, yet powerful introduction into the world of psychology changed millions of lives by showing the simple art of mastering the mind.
I was introduced to Tony the same way tens of millions were almost 20 years ago. The non-stop marketing of Tony’s programs eventually pulled me into a world I thought was only make believe, but I was wrong. It was a world of hope.
Most people don’t realize that to make it in the outside world a person must conquer their inside world. In other words, a person must master his or her own mind. Tony articulated perfectly how the mind works through association and how the basic principles of belief in one’s self would cause a person’s pattern of thinking to change, therefore, producing a different approach to life.
It was that powerful knowledge Tony repetitiously taught in his programs that saved many from a life filled with mental hardship, poverty and misery. Tony installed a wealth of knowledge that for many helped create a life of passion and new direction most thought never existed.
His recipe for success was simple. Decide what you want, take action on what you want, share the knowledge you’ve learned, and never stop learning. These basic principles can be found in any book of success and Tony has read hundreds of them. No wonder why he has achieved so much and influenced so many.
Life is not the enemy as most would believe. It is the person who thinks life is the enemy that ultimately lives with lack and misery. All problems can be solved with knowledge and passion for change and Tony mastered it with his heart and soul.
Tony is no magician, but a fearless person who is not afraid to risk everything with his immense talent to create anything he wants in life. Some consider him just a charlatan who used his salesman mentality to make it. Indeed he did, we are all salesman in our own lives and Tony is living proof of the American dream.
Without a doubt, Tony Robbins is definitely “Americas Mentor” to millions. Read his story and find out how this humble man who had nothing created a life he wanted and changed millions as a result. You will never think the same way again.
