Who Is Tony Robbins?
So, who the hell is this guy Tony Robbins? And why is everybody is talking about him? Now, I will speak to you about who this guy is. I’ve shaken his hand and I’ve met him. Not a total groupie so I’m speaking on the outside and let you know who he is and what he is all about.
So, Tony Robbins. Tony Robbins, Tony Robbins. You hear hear about him everywhere. He’s huge guy. He’s like 6’6. And he’s very famous. What he is just to kind of… I know he tries to call himself a personal grow fixcellerator.
I’m sure he has these terms if he wants people to call him. But what he is, is he’s a motivational speaker. And I’m going to kind of lay out a bit about who this guy is, how he helps people, what he does, if his for you if he is not for you.
And I’ll talk about my own personal experience. But he is a motivational speaker. And first off, I want to define each of these words separately. What is motivation? What is motivational? What does that mean? It’s really about being able to will your self to do something.
It’s not forcing you to do something. There are coaches like Garrett J. White who actually take you to like a boot camp. Like a navy seal boot camp and literally kick your ass and literally punch you in the face.
You know, or have you punch each other people in the face. That’s outside. That’s like a different form of motivation. That’s like getting an ass whooping. And that could be helpful sometimes. But for Tony, what he does is he helps you figure out from inside of yourself why you might, may or may not want to do something.
So let’s say you want to be an entrepreneur but you just haven’t done it yet. Let’s say you’re in a bad relationship and you’re comfortable but you’re scared to leave it but you know you got to leave it.
Tony helps you figure out by really it’s question asking. If that’s what you really want and helps you form your own conclusion on what to do. He’s not out there telling you “Leave that man, leave that woman.
” He’s not telling you, “Start that job or get out of that job.” He’s helping you arrive at conclusions usually you already know what you need to do. Usually you know to get out of that relationship and you to quit that job or whatever that is.
But he helps you kind of build up the will power and the reasoning to do that. That’s motivation. Comes from inside yourself. It’s already there, it’s just about getting it out there. The second part is I said he is a speaker.
That’s what he does best. I know he has podcasts, he has books, he has YouTube videos. No offense Tony. Non of these mediums, he excels that. What Tony Robbins was made for is not Twitter, is not Instagram, it’s not YouTube.
Tony was made for in-person speaking, okay? I argue he’s the best in the world at what he does. And that’s speaking. Motivational speaking. You go to one of his events, you will be floored by how much energy is in the room.
It’s like an earthquake is happening when the room gets up. People are so amped. And people are all there to make a personal change. He’s just really great as a speaker in person. Not on the other mediums.
So that being said, who is he and what does he do. And basically like his story… I’ll kind of paraphrase things. He comes from California. He was like a poor boy. Living in California. Had like a broker household.
He was, you know, like beat up or something. I don’t know yet. He had like really sucky childhood. I guess his mom got beat up or something. Some stuff like that. I think it’s like… His mother’s boyfriend has beat him up.
Some crazy thing like that. And he was like, “I’m going to be better. I’m going to be successful.” He went to his own self-development things when he was young and he was working jobs as a janitor and stuff like that.
And he was able to work out of… He learned this stuff called NLP whic stand for neuro linguistic programming. But basically, he learned how to use the power of language of verbage and of body language to help people make changes in their life that they already want to make.
But they just haven’t been able to make. And where he really got famous in the beginning was with helping people stop smoking. These are people that wanted to stop smoking. They were like, “I don’t know.
I just keep going back.” And he help people with weight loss too. And what he would do… I mean he did a lot of stuff. But basically it was the power of body language and all that stuff. You’re mentally, you know, fu**ing with people.
Back then he did some like hypnosis type stuff. He’s really gnarly on what he does. Now, fast forward to today, what he really helps people out with is it’s a very broad array of spectrum. It’s helping people make those changes.
Really, I’d stand these 2 key areas which is accelerating their success or getting success in business. And helping people decide on those… Make those decisions that they know they need to make. And also making those decisions in their relationships.
You know, a lot of people stick around in relationships because their comfortable, their convenient. They don’t want to be left alone, they have abandonment and he has helped people overcome those issues at least for a little bit and make those decisions that will take their life forward for good.
My experience with him is… I’m a pretty big fan of him. Of his speaking and his message and of self-improvement. I don’t really read his books. I don’t really listen to his podcast or his YouTube videos.
I’m not really a fan of him in those ways. But in terms of his events, I’ve gone to about a dozen of his events. And what I’m going to speak to is about… You know, the one in particular time which was in Schaumburg, Illinois, August 2012.
That was where I made my decision to actually quit my job and start my own business. And on those decisions I knew I had to make for a long time. And you know, I was lazy or I was just… There’s inertia there.
I was scared to quit my job. I didn’t know what it meant because I knew if I quit my job, I wouldn’t have steady source of income. And you know, that was scary to me. Every thing up until that point in my life had taught me, go to school, get a job, work your way up at job.
I was never taught in school, “Work for yourself and how you manage your finances. And here’s how you do it.” You’re never taught that. Nobody in my friends or my family members would agree with that as a viable option.
Yet, I knew that’s what I wanted. So, to make that decision, I mean what Tony did specifically was he did something called the Dicken’s process that was on his event. Where he ask you question. He says, project what’s something you know you need to overcome but you haven’t done yet? And I thought in my head.
And I’m like quit my job, right? Start my business. Work for myself. Because I know if I quit my job then I have more time to make more money working for myself. And I thought I would end up okay. But just hadn’t done it yet.
Now, he said, “Okay. Let’s say you don’t change that. That thing you know you need to change. Where will you be a year from now?” And he says, “Really imagine it. Imagine what it looks like. Imagine what it taste like.
Imagine what it feels like. Imagine what it’s smells like. Or where you are. Who are you around? Who’s in your life, who’s not in your life? How do you feel on the day-to-day basis.”, Etc. You really.
.. Makes you go like specific and deep. Like, really imagine it like it’s an actually thing that’s actually happening. Versus just being like, “Oh, that sucks.” Okay? Then he says, “Okay, let’s say that this problem remains in your life for 5 years in the future.
What’s going on? Are you still single? Are you married? Who are you with.” Etc. Says, 10 years, 25 years, 50 years if you can go that far. You know, 50 years of me never making that decision I knew I needed to make.
Where I saw my life was really… You know, I won’t go in depth but not where I wanted to be in life. My life wasn’t horrible. You know, it was fine. i was on a good career path. But it wasn’t where I want it to be.
Then he says, “Okay, let’s imagine you change this. Put that thought behind you and make it black and white.” You know, it’s like he’s doing this mental stuff with you. Then he says, “Imagine you do change.
Where are you in a year, 2 years, 5 years.” You have these kind of 2 options. He really makes you paint these 2 options in front of you. And he forces you to make a decision. And I basically put that bad one behind me.
And when I stepped into who I was to become and who I feel I’ve become in some respects. You know, I actually cried. And I am not a crying person. I cried because I couldn’t believe I was so close to letting my life slip away from me.
And go down this path where I’ve never made a decision, right? Because my life was going to go down that other bad path where I work my job my whole life by default. I just didn’t have to make a decision, right? By not making a decision that I was making a decision, in sense.
So, that was my story with Tony. And from that point in my life. everything change within 3 months of attending that event. I had quit my job, I had given myself 60 days to quit my job. And 30 days to give my boss my 30-day notice.
I’m a big advocate of giving my bosses 30-day notices because I think it’s just respectful and… You know, it’s hard to hire people. But by the time I had quit my job, what it actually happened is my boss had offered to pay me for political reasons with the clients.
He had offered to pay me my salary for the next 6 months in full for really doing nothing. Just answering a few emails. And I had landed 2 clients which paid me $10,000 a month each. Because that was another decision I made at this event.
I knew I had to be charging more from my services. I had to hand out in different places and stuff. You know, it’s not just like thinking and it’ll become stuff. You know, you have to actually do the work.
So, I started finding different clients. And basically, I went from making $6,000 a month to $30,000 a month 3 months later. Through a series of decisions that I’ve made at Tony Robbins’ event. And the guy is a genius at what he does.
Which is motivational speaking. And he is amazing. And He’s a highly successful person. A very smart person. And I have a lot of appreciation for him. Now, one thing is I’d like to invite you to learn more about is Tony has come out with his own digital product.
And I’d probably will have a link somewhere in the description about his own digital product because that’s something that never had an actual digital course before. So, I think that’s really interesting.
And if you want to experience a little bit of tony at home. The only thing beyond the the fence, I recommend his digital course. Now, if you learn some information from this or if this helped you out in anyway learn about Tony Robbins and what he is about, it was kind of a long way to answer, I know.
