I personally thought Tony Robbins was just another typical “make money, grow rich, be successful” type of motivational speaker, which never really resonated with me. That is until a friend sent me this interview yesterday.
I have a short attention span and, as you can tell, I am not easily impressed by motivational speakers…but I was able to sit through this entire interview in bed, until 2 in the morning and still feel inspired as I am writing this the next day. So I hope you believe me when I say this is worth the watch!
For those who don’t know, Tony Robbins is an American motivational speaker, personal finance instructor, and self-help author. He became well known from his infomercials and self-help books:Unlimited Power, Unleash the Power Within andAwaken the Giant Within.
In this interview, Tony Robbins shares what it takes to have an extraordinary life, and both he and Marie Forleo become vulnerable while sharing their own struggles and recent learning curves.
I can honestly tell that from comparing this interview to his older content, he has grown immensely. He is not afraid to say that he is a work in progress and eternal student. And most importantly, he has not lost sight of why he does what he does, which is a genuine and heartfelt desire to be the best he can be in order to uplift others and ultimately, the whole world.
I hope this interview will be as life-changing for you as it was for me! Before scrolling down to the interview, here are a few inspiring quotes from Tony himself.
“Success comes from taking the initiative and following up… persisting… eloquently expressing the depth of your love. What simple action could you take today to produce a new momentum toward success in your life?”
“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”
“In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”
“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”
“It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.”
“You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.”
“It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.”
“Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment.”
