How to Change the Quality of Your Life

I wanted to give you a quick video from one of my past weekend events where I shared about the power of questions - change the questions you ask yourself and change the direction of your life.

Also, click on this link to see a great clip on the Power of Questions that you can send on to your friends and family! Power of Questions Mini Movie

Remember, it’s not the events of your life that determine how you feel and act but, rather, the meaning you create from your life’s experiences. Learning to ask empowering questions - especially in moments of crisis - is a critical skill that will ultimately shape the meanings you create, and therefore the quality of your life.

Stay Strong and Live with Passion,

156 Comments to Shift your Focus: The Power of Questions

  1. Tony,

    Thanks so much for being such a powerful force in those who want to listen. It’s easy to become depressed and not focus on our own passions living inside of each of us. What we think is what we become.

    I have been divorced now for two years after being married for 32 years. My now ex decided he was gay. It’s been a huge hurdle for me and my daughters, but I know within me I am getting stronger every day. You too have added to helping me find my passion… some I didn’t even know I had.

    Keep up the great work! We need this more than any other time.

  5. Hi Tony,

    I am just beginning my faith journey, I am making my money machine and am selling property on Land Contract, I had two buyers then a lady went to property (I have not been there in four years) and told me the roof was leaking and mold was growing, Deals on the brink of No Deal, Integrity or no integrity. What to do.. I called both buyers and told them roof leaks and mold growing. Cannot sell property as livable but will sell land only. Both buyers stated I’ll take it. Integrity won out. Deal saved. Thanks for the encouragement, I have been with your programs for almost two years and increased my net worth because I put leggs under it. Now I’m headed for the cliff and needed cash flow. God I love you. I am small peanuts, but thats today, your honesty and integrity is making me someone I can be proud of. I sincerely wanted to benefit these people and I have been totally honest and the people love it. Here’s to growth no matter where you start. I finally have a mentor that has my best interest at heart. You have given me an honest leader, with my best interest in mind. I have also helped you by purchasing your products. I am trying to keep relationships that I used to walk away from now I try to work it out with integrity. Thank you.

  7. G’day Tony,

    Thanks again for a great video. The power that questions hold really is incredible, and having learned that in my own life, and then having explained to me properly when I first saw you on the Gold Coast at DWD, I really do understand what a change in question, at least the quality of question can do for me, family, friends and clients. We all have our challenges, I still have mine certainly, but change the quality and the focus and absolutely we can make it happen. Whatever “it” is. Thank you again my friend for providing such amazing content. I’m wrapped that you have latched onto blogging and the power that videos such as this can have. I will be here daily to check out the latest. Thanks mate.

  9. Hi Tony,
    I absolutely love your blog, there may only be a handful of entries but each one is powerful and highly valuable.

    Checking out your new updates always anchors me back to the culture I have embraced as I surround myself with Powerteam friends who think and behave alike. Have the right team is especially important now with so much doubt out there.

    Power of Questions is at the core of inner dialogue and I am grateful for these type of constant reminders. Hope you integrate your blog with Twitter, Facebook and some of the other High Visibility Web 2.0 properties that can allow us to keep a pulse on what your blogging and sharing with us.

    Great to serve at the opening of OU this past year as well as DWD last month… see you this coming March in NJ.

    Hugs and Blessings to you and Sage,

  11. Great stuff, Tony!

    I guess it’s like J. Todd Ferrier said: “We are what we think; as we desire so do we become! By our thoughts, desires, and habits, we either ascend to the full divine dignity of our nature, or we descend to suffer and learn.”

    All the best,

  12. Eugene (Editor, Varsity Blah) on January 22nd, 2009
  13. thanks for your videos again…

  15. I love your teaching your methods are so powerful

    Here is a question for you. How would you like to be a consultant on my new reality TV show Inspired by you and the biggest loser TV Show?

    You can find out more by going

    All I would be asking for is a once a week video message to the contestants.

    This show is a result of your teachings and the power of the question what would my dream life look like. And this is one of the answers to that question.

  19. Dear T-Rob,
    It’s amazing how in times like 2009, a “time of struggle” I’m not feeling like I’m struggling. I’ve lost (and gained) a lot this year. But, your power of questions has brought me from a HUGE, broad focus, to a smaller-more intense spectrum of opportunity. I’m NOT struggling because I know that because I’m focused so passionately, I WILL get by, I will succeed. When I forget these valuable lessons, when I DO struggle, I always come back to asking a BETTER question. I’m finding for myself, stronger and more meaningful answers. Thanks for the hot tips, you’re awesome man. :) Keep rockin! I sent your training link to my entire email list of friends/family. Thanks again. Best to you and yours.

  21. Great Job Tony,

    You are really rolling with the times. This new blog is excellent. If you could make it better, how would that look? (hehe)

    Have a great weekend!

  22. Vinnie F on January 22nd, 2009
  23. One of the greatest inspiring blog I’ve ever met! Thank you for the things I know in such a quick and inspiring way. This morning will be the new morning of a new life for many people in the world. You have remind me that I as a coach have a powerful tool to apply to myself: POWERFUL MIRRACLE QUESTIONS! Let me remember this. EVERY MOMENT IN my LIFE.

  24. Evgeny Leshchenko on January 22nd, 2009
  25. Hey Tony!!!

    Thank you once again for the great tools you have given me! Everytime I am at a crossroads and my mind decides to challenge me, you always have a message. Whether it be via a book, CD, DVD etc, it completely empowers me to make a decision that I stick by come hail, snow, storm- anything! And the most powerful tool “IN A HEARTBEAT”. This is one tool that I can not thank you enough for! :D

    Living strong with bucket loads of passion!!!!!

  27. Tony,

    Thank you for all you do. I’ve been following your work for over 20 years and although I have never attended one of your seminars you have been an inspiration to me and now I am so glad you are sharing these resources so that more and more people can find you too.

  29. Why oh why do I never lose weight?? ;) What a simple but eye opening video you just published. This does not only apply to my dieting, but it’s just the thing I feel I’ve been loosing during the past couple of years.

    I’ve been changing from an extremely optimist person to a less of an optimist and I just realized that to a large extent, I’ve started to ask the wrong kind of questions and had a less positive inner dialogue.

    This will change. I will find the positive (full) energy again! :) Thank you so much for sharing these videos.

    Kindest regards

  30. Hanna on January 22nd, 2009
  31. Thanks Tony, it is true. Ask better questions and you will get better answers. This has helped me drastically change my state the last 2 years. Thanks again as always.


  32. Tim Davis on January 22nd, 2009
  33. Tony: Thank you for sharing your knowledge and your love. As we start this year, I am working my emotional muscle to get to the state I need to be in. Today video serves as an excellent reminder that we can put in state at a moment notice. Today I am choosing to be grateful to my Lord for all the wonderful gifts he gives me everyday, to engage with my fellow partners in the defense of our nation, to get back to my books to continue to grow intellectually and with my community to give back to those who are growing like I am.

    God bless and see you tomorrow :)

  34. Aurea on January 22nd, 2009
  35. Wonderful to have this support in what many see as dark times but what I see are opportunities.

    Thank you for your tips and tools - they are a powerful way to enable us to live with PASSION!

    My email address has changed to:

    Bless you for being there for us. You are on my gratitude list.

  36. Sue Kennedy on January 22nd, 2009
  37. Your work changed my life and I want to thank you for that!
    Hopefully I will one day shake your hand and tell you in person. But for now I strive to make progress and continue to learn from your programs and videocasts.

    Best wishes,

  39. Hi Tony,

    Thanks for this….I’ve heard it before but it’s always good to get it again and to be reminded of the gem that is consistency!

    The world at the moments needs this type of positive influence and I believe that we need to work together during these times of transition in order to take things to the next level.

    Blessings from Ireland.

  41. Thanks Tony - Great blog! I just found out the other day about your blog and am very happy to have found it. I have listened to you for years and I especially like how you pointed out Norman VP (one of my all time heroes) in an earlier video. I have ADHD, and that’s a problem, but like most problems I have found ways to take advantage of it to improve my life and my circumstances through positive thinking and the understanding that problems are not here to keep us down, but to rather build us up. Some can’t see that yet, but once they do… oh my! Thanks for doing what you do and offering yourself on this fantastic blog!

  43. Hi Tony,

    What a compelling start to the day. The Power of Questions is so powerful it is what takes me from knowledge to action every day and is a daily ritual. For many years I searched for the answer to how I could move myself from Knowledge to action, after being a “Seminar Junkie” for sometime my life changed when I met you and created daily habits of excellence.
    God bless you Tony

  45. Hello Tony,

    UPW March, 2007 NJ when you asked on the stage; “I’m looking for a strong man”, I raised hand and run to you on the stage, not knowing that I will end up having a short tango dance with the Giant. All of that came from asking a quality question which was” How can I get so close to Tony where I can feel his heart and he can feel mine more than ever?” I never knew that I will also get a chance to talk to the master in person and have a memorable photo with you after the seminar (back stage). I keep asking myself great questions daily and I want to thank you for educating me in my life. You lessons are so invaluable and I would love to share them with more people. I am based in Tokyo, Japan and it would be great if you give me the permission to put a Japanese subtitle on your short videos and introduce your blog to Anthony Robbins Japan community. (more than 200,000 fans.)
    Love you Tony.

  49. Mr. Tony,

    Thank you for sharing your experience with us ! Yes, you are right most of us don’t ask the right questions… I remember my self 5 years ago… the questions i was asking… and i remember myself 2 years ago far away from home in Malaysia in a 3 star hotel with no money in my pocket… and only few clothes and 2 books that i bought in Singapore.. Awaken the Giant Within and Unlimited Power: The New Science of Personal Achievement…

    Thank you is not enough !

  59. The clear, concise and powerful technique you share to “Shift Your Focus” is amazing.

    Thank you,

  61. Tony,I always enjoy your mentoring my brother. Your video doesn’t work though!


  62. Peter Horrill on January 22nd, 2009
  63. Tony -

    Thank you so much for yet another great reminder of just how powerful the tools you share are. Powerful questions are the basis of all that occurs in one’s life - good and bad. Thanks for the reminder to continuously ask the right ones!

    Your video blog rocks! Kudos to you and your team for adding this fine resource to our toolbox.


  64. Judy on January 22nd, 2009
  65. You have always been a great inspiration to me. Having said that and seen a lot of life it seems as if I’m being pulled toward in different direction. I’ve always own my business and now I feel the need to regroup and go back to the basics. How crazy does this sound. I’m almost forty and the military seems like a good chose to regroup and serve my country and God. This decision is of course to join the reserves and go back to college and live near my daughters. I just to the entrance exam and can chose whatever job I want. But since being a coach also for 22 years I feel the need to lead. Just wanted to see if you have thoughts on this matter? Sincerely, Brad

  66. Bradley on January 22nd, 2009
  67. Hi Tony,

    Me and my parents used to battle depression and exhaustion, but we seemed to continuously go around in cirles…that is until we found you.
    I am 19 and i still find it hard to get through sometimes but i always turn to your get the edge and personal power set, you remind me i can do anything. When i was about 13 i was about 13 stone, i used to get bullied at school and my parents could not afford new school trousers to fit me so they used to cut into my skin and sometimes even bleed, when my parents brought the first book unlimited power, i read it and lost all the weight! now i am my ideal weight and i am so happy, my life really changed, i became positive and i made so many friends, i felt my self esteem go up and even started modelling. Anyway i always wanted to tell you that you really did change my life and i will always be grateful to you!!!! Thank you Tony!!!!!!


  68. Hannah Cousins on January 22nd, 2009
  69. Hi Tony,

  71. Hi Tony,

    I just love these videos! I look forward to them! I have been caught up in a really negative thought pattern lately, and realized I have been asking myself lousy questions and of course getting the lousy answers they create. Thank you for readjusting my focus and showing the way to a full life. God Bless!

  72. Edie Buchanan on January 22nd, 2009
  73. Dear Tony Robbins

    My question just one, how I can attend you date with destiny seminar in Australia this years with free?
    That was so funny may be, but I will ask every day until I receive my answer.

    Best regards,

    Marcus Totok Hermawan

  74. Marcus Totok Hermawan on January 22nd, 2009

  77. WOW, wow, wow! Did I needed that one after yesterday’s NYNL. The power of questions keeps you in check throughout the day…IF you ask powerful, positive questions EVERYDAY!

    PS: Who’s your tailor Tony, talk about a POWER suit! Gotta love it baby!

  78. Jim Edward on January 22nd, 2009
  79. Tony, thanks for making our lives better.

  81. I was wondering if there will be any small conference meetings going on in the future. I travel to the west coast ever so often. and I need T Robins (BOOST). Times are changing along with my life. I need wind in my sails, and new spring in my step…. Please keep me in mind on the seminars. All the Best Jay McCamis

  83. “Rituals to put you in a state, and there are rituals that put you out of a state”

    I haven’t come across this till today. And dang, I just adjusted the way I sit even in front of my desktop watching this video. :)

  84. Daniel Richard on January 22nd, 2009
  85. Tony thanks , again and again and again
    The odds are not good but the drive thank to you is building, I wish I could tell you that things are the best , but going over your video’s over and over again I am now feeling better!I can not remember how long it has been!
    In November I lost my mom and a year before that my dad. I live in Arizona and have been with out family for 16 years. I went through a bad divorce and was told by the court system to just go make a new life. I did that AND IN THE PROCESS LOST ALL. I was in big trouble two years ago,almost at the end! I could bare no more and I stumbled apon an audio of yours. It gave me strength and I for the first time in 14 years got help with my depression. I have since started to deal with unforgiving leagle problem from divorce, and now work full time job. the waters have been shaky and at time I start to slip,but I am able to pull myself up! I am doing much better and it is just because –god gave us Tony Robbins. so thank you Tony and thank you god for you have provided!

  86. Dave Silenzi on January 22nd, 2009
  87. Thanks Tony, it’s amazing that you are sending all these information for free…. THE POWER OF GIVING!

  88. Sam on January 22nd, 2009
  89. After listening to Tony’s powerful synthesis down here in Brazil on my tape player ( You heard it right! Cassette Player !) for the past 14 years’s a bliss to watch him readapt and rewrite his references which have remained consistent with his core beliefs throughout the years; Tony’s empirical attitude has harmonized w/ most of my passion towards Spinoza’s , Henri Bergson’s and all other superior empirists ; If you ever come to Rio de Janeiro , Give me a Call …I’ll show you around for free!

  90. Sérgio Câmara on January 22nd, 2009
  91. Dear Tony,

    I just started studying your materials last November, and in this short time you have helped me so much that I am writing you in profound gratitude to ask:

    How can I be of service to you?

    To be clear, I am not looking for a job (thankfully I am happily employed) or for anything else but for the opportunity to give something back to you of all that you have already given to me.

    To give you an idea of my skills, I have an MBA from a top 10 business school and experience in Fortune 500 companies. I am fluent in Spanish, conversational in French, knowledgeable about recovery from addictions (14 years sober in AA with no relapses), about marriage (8 years and counting) and about playing drums and bass.

    I am good at studying complex business problems, getting to the core of issues, and coming up with solutions.

    I have also been told that I am good at helping people through personal challenges, and that my words can touch the emotional fibers of others.

    If you think of anything I could do for you please let me know and I’ll do my very best.

    You can find my personal info in your database in orders #245859 and #9022079. My contacts within your company have been Sam Sanchez and Kay Knuteson (kudos for both, they are great!)

    Sincerely, Very Grateful

    P.S. I have adopted the following incantation for my every morning hour of power:
    “I command my subconscious self to put all my will and all my resources at the service of God and at the service of all humanity, now!”

    P.S.2. I will attend your Unleash The Power Within Seminar in the NY area on March 11-15, 2009.

  92. Very Grateful on January 22nd, 2009
  93. Tony,

    Thanks for this simple tool that we can use every day in every moment.

    It is the simple tools and messages that create the most value for me. I appreciate the reach out from you and your company. It is a great way to start my day.



  94. Gregg Schillinger on January 22nd, 2009
  95. Hi Tony,

    I was at the July UPW in Toronto! Thank you for your years of research and encouragement for all of us. What a life changing event.

    I love your blog. Keep up the great work! It reaches so many.

    I have recently suffered the loss of my mother. I was her caregiver, business partner and best friend. I have been grieving and trying to focus on my new life without her. Your blogs have been a God sent!

    I am trying very hard to take this life changing event and come out not only making her proud but more importantly, myself proud. You are the ultimate reminder of the choice I have to life with passion or just live. Passion and integrity have become my focus.


    My warmest regards,


  96. Miranda Christoff on January 22nd, 2009
  97. Does anybody else also have a problem viewing this?
    The other videos work for me, just not this one…
    Tony, why does this always happen to me???
    Just kiddin

  98. Mo Sayid on January 22nd, 2009
  99. Thanks for the messages Tony. I plan on starting my 2009 out on the right foot. It hasn’t been there in a long time. Also started reading like you said. Right now I’m reading the SECRET. It seems to follow a lot of what you say in your seminars. I’ve been to the Power Within. I too am in a dead relationship. Have been for year. Pretty have stayed for the kids sakes. But I think they are starting to see things now. My husband is a pessimist. I just can’t take it any more. We’ve pretty much been apart now for 2 years. He was arrested back them and decided to keep it from me. I found his car in the impound lot. I’ve been waiting for him to tell me. Never has. So I closed the book. I think it was a sign to move on. So I printed your steps and plan on working on them. I’ll keep you posted.

  100. Robin Mitschke on January 22nd, 2009
  101. thank you so much. the world need these ideas more than any other time.

  102. mehdi derakhshani on January 22nd, 2009
  103. Just checking if I timed-out or I should resend my last post…if the last reached you Tony then you got my “thank you” OK. Do not worry about posting it. Thank you again for all that you and yours do for us and ours! :)


  104. Roxanne on January 22nd, 2009
  105. Hello Tony!

    After so many years of practicing to keep-in-step with your wonderful acquired knowledge base, which you so passionately share with others, I finally send you a thank-you note…I apologize for waiting so long.
    I mentioned above that my journey through the years have been full of “practicing” to get things in focus. It is ongoing with trials and errors, but I feel there will always be productive-process in my life … if I keep trying (which I will!) : D
    Again, I am grateful that you have reached out via the web more intensely now, sharing teaching tools that many of us need as reminders to get up and begin “practicing” to master our state of mind once again!
    I have gone back to school, in my fabulous forties : ), determined to finish up and get my degree. This is just one lifetime goal I am working towards. This will be (my BS) accomplished next term, and my Masters will be next on the agenda. And I know with the issues I deal with in my life, as many others do, I would not have pushed me forward, on many occasions, without the care and keeping of your ongoing goals and desires to help others. This is a practice I would love to be part of in a bigger way somehow.
    I have found you, and the teachings of “The Secret” (many teachings that you practiced and shared years before) to be my mind-vitamins. I see nothing but good things in the teaching tools that have been handed down, and self-obtained, for so many years by a few special people driven by the desire and excitement of helping others. You of course are one of these people. You truly radiate with sincerity and empathy concerning the way in which people live out their gift of life. Even when many of us from time-to-time forget to remember it is a “gift” to be grateful for.
    I am up to my rambling so I will stop and get to my last point. (I do wish this were not for public reading…but I thought it the best way to reach you and your team, as you mentioned you have been reading, or trying to, all the postings here.) I have made a goal to reach out and find a way to volunteer this year, with something I find productive and valuable in helping others. I have been keeping my eyes and ears open for ideas and opportunities to do so using my capabilities/line of work. I have come up with one, so I thought I would stick my neck out there and see what happens. I was listening to yet another encouraging video of yours this morning. And it made me wonder if I could play any type of roll in what you are trying to do via the web. This may be silly, and it may even be rude to think you could use a volunteer in this area. I, as I mentioned, am finishing up my degree in the field entertainment media art and design. I am a traditional artist and have gone back to school to learn and work in the digital world. More of what I do can be found on my site …

    The site is simple, a work in progress as I work on my degree. I have not presented all my work/portfolio in professional order yet, but if there is anything in my knowledge base that I can volunteer to support your online presentations ect please let me know. I would consider it an exciting privilege indeed to volunteer my services in a productive way!
    I had an idea, and thought it best to act on it immediately with an “action”…This may not have been the “right time” to do the “right thing.” Hee hee But I do not think a little embarrassment will cause too much pain. :)

    Thank you again Tony, for all the push and positive excitement you give to the lives of others.

    Wow! - Here’s his most recent “tweet” from Tony Robbins (1/22/09 2:06):

    “It’s me spellrus! Not my staff! ;-) tony”

    (P.S. Tony -> Try putting “@” in front of spellrus to get @spellrus in your tweets and make this a link to that person’s Twitter home page ;)

  111. Hey Tony,

    I’ve been teaching this for many years, but here’s the thing - I originally learned it from you Tony. So, you have helped me to help others, and hopefully, they have passed it along. Life is circular, thanks for being part of my circle!

    At your service,

  115. Hi Tony,
    THANK YOU! for continuing to share! You are very significant in my life and in the lives of the families whose children are being helped by your work!

    I have a program (85% of your teachings!)that is pulling kids out of Autism and other special needs (changes seen in 2 weeks and work is done in under 6 months!) and it is from what you have taught me over the past 18 years! I use questions, modeling/mirroring (to get inside their heads), 6 human needs, look at and change behavior as seeking pleasure avoiding pain, changing states, nutrition!, anchoring, and the list goes on.

    So again, THANK YOU for sharing!

  117. Tony,

    I loved it when you said, “your life comes from your rituals”. I have recently found out how true that is in my life. When I make the conditioning patterns you teach a daily habit, my life goes better and shows the difference. I don’t have tot ell anyone what I am doing, they can see the improvements because I am happier and more produtive in my life.

    Thank you for sharing your video. It helped reinforce what I already know from what you teach and helped motivate me to continue.

    Sending the best,

  119. Tony,
    In 1986, I felt like I had no future. I was 40lbs overweight, uneducated, INCREDIBLY shy. After listening to my first set of Tony Robbins tapes, I lost 40lbs, got my first sales job and really started to count my blessings instead of focus on all the negative parts of my life. 23 years later, 2009, I am in the best shape of my life, have a successful company that I built from the ground up ALL BY MYSELF THAT EMPLOYS OVER 100 PEOPLE AND has sales over 10 MILLION A YEAR. I HAVE AN INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER AND WAKE UP FEELING GRATEFUL FOR A LIFE I CREATED FOR MYSELF WITH YOUR HELP. THANK YOU TONY.

  123. Tony,

    For the past couple of decades you’ve been teaching me about myself. This video is no exception. When things are going well in my business, relationships and life, it’s because of what I choose to focus on. It is a function of asking myself the right questions. When things are not going well, my focus has shifted to a non-productive place.

    I carry you around in my car with me, and one of my favorite questions from your CD series is “What else could this mean?” It’s not what happens to us, it’s the meaning we attach to what happens that makes a universe of difference.

    Keep doing the phenomenal work you do in the world. I am inspired and uplifted every time I think of you.

    Be very blessed,
    Valerie Love

  137. Ohhhh Tony thanks so much for that kick in the butt, I totally needed it. I teach children with severe behavioural and emotional disorders(I sometimes show them your vidoes:). We’ve been having a lot of issues with the kids pretty much beating the snot out of eachother on the school bus. In the last week I’ve been more aggressively approached by some parents who are, for good reason, really upset about this. One of which was today. I was almost in tears feeling powerless, frustrated, and that the parents of my students think I’m one of “those’ teachers that doesn’t care about their kids. I came home in a total funk ruminating about all the things they said and taking it EXTREMELY personally. I opened your video and halfway through you doing the ‘focus on a color’ activity I started laughing at myself. It donned on me that I am totally focusing on the wrong things right now AND creating meaning to these things that is of no benefit to me or my students. SO just a huge thanks to you for sending that out, and to the universe for working out the perfect timing on it:)

  138. Alethea Heudes on January 22nd, 2009

  141. Tony,

    I just loved this particular session which made me feel so great! I have an investigation going on at work that had been weighing me down and I have been thinking and working positive that this too shall pass and I will get cleared. Thank you. :)


  142. Lilia on January 22nd, 2009
  143. “Negative feedback”

    I wander whether Tony would ever take notice of any comment which is “not praise” provided that the negative feedback is fair and well considered.

    I shall refraim from giving any negative feedback publicly however I must acknowledge that, on balance, Tony has made a good contribution to hummanity.

  144. Craig Mcintosh on January 22nd, 2009
  145. Thanks Tony for your inspirational videos. Personally, your teachings on gratitude and dedicating what your doing to someone have really helped me. For the past weeks whenever I’ve gone into work, I’ve dedicated my shift to someone important in my life and its actually given me more energy throughout my shift and more fulfillment at the end of the day. Thank you!!!

  146. Shawn on January 22nd, 2009
  147. Tony,

    As always your messages come at the perfect time!

    I work out 7 days a week and people always ask me what I do to look the way I do…I always tell them come and follow me for a week and you’ll know how, and the first thing you have to do is start getting up at 3:30AM everyday. Everyone has the same 24 hours and if they choose to sleep, fine, I choose to live!!!!!!!!

    As always, thank you, live with passion and always, always THINK BIG!!!!!!!!!

  148. Tom Lewandowski on January 22nd, 2009
  149. Thanks, Tony. I am a trader starting my own hedge fund. I had a particularly challenging day today, but this video helped me change my state. Instead of asking the question “What did I do wrong?” I changed it to “What did I learn from this?” WOW what a state change that caused! I am now looking forward to trading tomorrow knowing that I am empowered with more knowledge than what I had this morning. Thanks again, and God Bless you and Sage!!!

  153. Hey Tony.. mind if I share with your group, testimonial.

    1) Tony taught me 16 years ago The Power Of Questions!!

    I went to one of his seminars, I had purchased the 30 Personal Power Program, before going and
    The first question I asked myself was…
    How can I take a picture with Tony while there was 2,000 energetic fans in attendance? If you go to my Website you will see a picture of Tony and me on stage.I was the second person on stage to take this picture.

    2) Second, I asked how can I become a Best-Selling author,within days I was offred the opportunity and within a year I became a Best-Selling author.

    3)How can I find a course that is aligned with my spiritual belief, my values, psychology, and complete wellness..within
    weeks the opportunity came my way.I now have a Bachelors Degree in Metaphysics and I am handing in my thesis in days for a Masters Degree.Not bad for a guy in high school that used to think I was dumb, I believed then, not now.

    This is not to brag ..but to share a testimonial on how Tony taught me The Power Of Asking A Quality Questions.

    A Million thanks, Tony, this simple analogy is still to this day bringing me incredible peace in total wellness and properity.

    God Bless

  159. Hi Tony, Thank you for your powerful reminder about focus and our quality questions. I started the Dr. Gundry’s Diet plan that was introduced at your Life Mastery in Newport Beach. In the past I always thought I would never be thin again. It’s old age and my weight is what it is. So I in faith tried Dr. G’s diet — Oct 3rd first day and today’s date Jan. 22nd, I have lost 22 lbs. I practice your mantra of focus and a better question and had a “must” for doing the work. I am loving my new NYDJ skinny jeans and loving my body more than ever before. Thank you Tony!!

    Well, looking at me, you could have probably guessed my ritual… but ahah! In a heartbeat, with the power of questions, my rituals start to change! (I tricked you!)

    Thank you for your lead and to have given me small reminders of how to take control of my energy, my life!

  170. Will on January 22nd, 2009
  171. Thank you Tony, you saved my life! 7 years ago I was a walking time bomb. I lost my business and I was 70 pounds overweight. I hit rock bottom. Not only did I lose my business but also because of my weight I had high blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and I suffered from gout. One day I went to the doctor with a walking stick and my doctor gave me a stern warning about my weight. Around the same time I read your book “Unlimited Power”, then I listened to “Personal Power” and I bought “Get The Edge”. In six months I lost 70 pounds and never gained back. Six months later when I went back to my doctor, for a moment, he didn’t recognize me.
    Since then I turned my finances around and I have kept the weight off for 6 years now. I still run 6 miles every morning, 6 days a week, as I listen to your “Hour of Power” and do the morning rituals. I’m 49 years old. Because of you I think I can live to 100! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  172. Chee on January 22nd, 2009
  173. I bought your programs since you and I both were kids. I still listen and know you had the basics down years ago (neat to see how “chunking” and a few others concepts are added) I’m trying to get the rest of my crew following your great ideas. I personally really need help out of this economic mess. I develop assisted living facilities and depend on the type of support you offer.

  174. John Steitz on January 22nd, 2009
  175. Tony, Thank you for your help at DWD in Arizona. My crazy 8 was demolished when I understood what my primary question was about. Thank you for the emails and video streams. these tools have help me minimize my fears durring the winter time of my business. I am free and loving life. I am so greatfull for my mastery experiance.

    Your friend.

  176. Richard Walker (Utah) on January 22nd, 2009
  177. Thanks Tony

    Love what Jill Koenig wrote above, “What’s good about this?” I’m going to go even further and say, “What’s great about this?”

    Yesterday something serious happened and I decided to chuck a project in - fortunately my co-producer picked the project up and ran with it and inspired me to carry on. His words were, “We’ve come too far to throw it in now. Last year I was ready to quit and you inspired me to carry on.”

    I am more inspired than ever in my mission, and I was up at 5.30am this morning getting things done.

    Thanks coach, bring it on.

  183. hey tony,thx for considering this whole blog thing, there’s alota key people doing it, its a great benefit for people gathering info on there on role models and mentors, i read some of your other comments and the guy thats 28 that wrote you a book about himself wanting to know what you would do if you were him is really onto something, i know you cant possibly respond to everyone that wants an answer like that but what if there was a program, a program that was more specific on things to do,especially for someone in there 20’s/30’s someone who is at a major pivot point in life,don’t get me wrong i like your latest project’in times of crisis’ of course i haven’t been able to aford it yet, im assuming its a positive outlook program witch im already positive about the economy anyways, the economy being in the shape it is has giving me opportunities i would have never had in the past like rental properties i can now afford and nicer vehicles at affordable prices and so on,anyways id love to be one of the lucky one’s to get a response from you,good by for now an i hope some day i get the chance to meet you personally

Having been with you on 9/11 in Hawaii and in Australia the following year at DWD, I have now written and published a book “The Essence of Womanhood - re-awakening the authentic feminine” available on Amazon.

  189. Dear Tony!

    Thank you for great inspiration ! I am going for 5 days in Master Practioner NLP here in Norway, out of were i am going to be on stage one day and talk about values. I am so excited that i have come so far after an extreme challenges for the last 8 years.

    Short, my husband died of cancer nov 2007 and suddenly i was alone with two children. I was freightend and in the process of grief something happend, i started to shift my focus on getting a new life, which meant that i needed to be in charge and secondly, irrespective of what happens i am never going to lower my standards. I have got some talents and skills in dealing with people, lets start focus on these things and i did set up a plan for myself. I am, by the grace of God, now well on my way and the best part, the process towards these goals is the best! I am so strong and happy that who knows what could happen, by end of 2009 my life is going to be turned around.

    Your books, NLP, greatfullness and beeing 100 mentally present and focused in what i do, i am settling for not less than the sky! Big words!!

    If you want to explore Norway, you will be my guest og honour!!!

    With all the best and a big hug!!!

  193. Hi Tony,

    oviously I’m another great fan of you and your work! I guess nothing’s wrong in saying you saved my life.

    Now, having a chance to get through to you (instead of a maybe- just- a- little- less- than- totally- empowered Company), let me ask you a question that’s been on my mind for quite a while:

    Is it possible there is another way to enormous wealth than adding massive value? Like: Ripping off others who add massive value and expect not much back? Lying and deceiving? Just plain stealing? From employers and employees/ customers and suppliers/ the state/ other countries/ share- and stakeholders/ friends and family/ … ? Actually destroying value?

    I’m not saying this will make you happy forever, but it is a way of becoming financially abundant! And I believe if less folks had chosen that way, america might be in a much better position!

    All the best for you and everyone you care about!

  194. Andy on January 23rd, 2009
  195. Tony,
    Thank you for sharing this with us. It reminds me of your interview with Steve Covey and discussing making a paradigm shift to change your perspective and point of view, your focus. Remembering to do this really helps me understand when something is serving me in a positive or negative way. When I shift my focus, paradigm, I am able to get in to a state that serves me better and helps me to get closer to where I desire. Thank you again.

  199. Lightbulb Moment!!! Thanks sooooo much!!! The simple statement “do the right thing at the right time”. Its the last part of this statement that for me personally created a shift or defining moment. Now when I connect it to the first part of “doing the right thing” I will expect miracles.

  200. Sharon on January 23rd, 2009
  201. Hey Tony… You are the master, a key to opening the door! You are right on the mark. Anyone that has been to a Tony Robbins event knows what I mean. Let yourself go, create and enjoy the time with Tony, his great team and those around him.

    A NEW YOU!

    I want to say thank you for creating this website. I am a huge fan of yours and have recently attended your UPW event in Orlando. It was great experience that I would never forget. The tools that I have got are helping me to conquer life challenges and are taking my life to a new level. As you said, we have to constantly condition ourselves to become what we want to become, and this site helping me to keep on track and keep fresh. I am looking forward to your new videos and materials.

    Thanks again and again

  211. Make progress or make excuses, or as you have often said, ask a dumb question, you’ll get the wrong answer!Not HOw come this always happen, but how do we solve…

    I am having a very hard time watching the videos (very slow to download even at high speed) I wish I could have a TR TV network channel… is that in your coaching future? What if? Isn’t it time?
    I’m in, sign me up, here is my credit card…

  212. Marie-Piere Kennedy on January 23rd, 2009
  213. Tony,

    I want to thank you for posting this Video blog! After attending DWD in Orlando, I came home and made some major changes involving my finances. I made a decision to stop making money in a shady way, and the second I came home I stopped. It has been extremely challenging, but I know it was the right decision. Sometimes I wished I still had the extra money every month, but I knew I could never become fulfilled if I did not let go of what I considered my safety blanket.

    I live in Vancouver and for the last week it has been very foggy causing a huge inconvenience, but the question I asked myself was, “how can I relate this to my life?”. I was in my car, driving and was thinking about how I could only see five feet of road ahead of me. I continued to drive, knowing that road goes on for many miles. The fog was inconvenient, but one day, very soon, it would clear.

    Thank you for all the tools you have provided me with, they have been invaluable in my transformation over the past year!

    Your Friend,

  214. Dustin Douglas on January 23rd, 2009
  215. What can I do Right Now to get closer to my goals?
    How will I feel when I have gotten there?
    Why not do something right now?

    Ok, good. Asking the right question, change the ritual of negative thought, get into my body…ask the right questions and GO…

    Life will never be the same again! Yeah…thanks Tony.


  216. Elicia Burton on January 23rd, 2009
  217. Hi Tony,
    I decided to make a change in my life this year, I feel like I have to and I must to. I’m just tired of living with no meaning.

    I started to feel better just watching the video and it makes me feel strange but in a good way. It is amazing the effect that you have in a normal person, just like me.

    I’m going to keep checking the blog and I’m to start applying all of your great ideas.

    I really wish we can meet someday, it would be a great experience.

    I’ll keep in touch.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do this.

  219. Anthony, thank you for having the balls to live your life on purpose. You have been a huge inspiration and guide in my life’s path. One day we will meet and you’ll be asking me of the extrodinary things I’ve done and how I’ve done so. You have taught me to think instead of react and for that I will always be great-full.
    Peace and Love,
    Tyler Sirianni

  223. Thank you, Tony, for changing my life. Your first book made me more confident and inspired me to make this world a better place.

  225. Tony,

    I own a company out of Chicago called “”. It’s a real estate brokerage similar to a Coldwell Banker business model but it focuses on “condos only”.

    I want you on the board of directors. I’m building it to a $100M value over the next five years by expanding it to LA, Miami & NY before liquidating in mid 2013.

    I’m a recent student of yours (UPW 2001 Chicago) and have sent more than 40+ people to UPW over the years on my own dollar.

    Please contact your rep “Angie Carpio McCall” to reach me by phone. My email address is It will be well worth your time.

    Warmest Regards, Brian Kuzdas

  227. Hey Tony,

    I consult for a number of businesses and my life and the life of my new fiance has changed incredibly in a very short period since i have started practicing what you teach.

    Apart from the big up i wanted to say that you should look at setting these up as a podcast/ downloadable resource which people subscribe and can get an hour a week (lets say) downloaded directly to their MP3/ipod.. I am sure you and guys down the road ( At apple) can get something amazing sorted.

    If you are on the other hand in need of ideas it would be an honor to consult for you and your team if you need any advise…

    best regards

    Nick ( London)..

  228. Nick M on January 24th, 2009
  229. Great message, attended UPW in Orlando in 2008….needless to say, it did change my life. Keep sending these messages, they truly are inspirational.

  233. Thanks Tony for your continual support. I lost my job last year in an industry that I have been in for the last 30+ years. I am now building an independent professional consulting business in which I need to continually hear what you have to say. I have been listening to your CDs for the last few years and while the adversity never ceases, how I deal with it gets better. I am stronger each day. You have helped me so much and now my two daughters ages 19 and 23 are listening to you much more and they share your words with others. Your new video clips are great. Please keep them going. One day when we get back on track financially we hope to all come again to one of your live programs. Keep it going! Jeff

  234. Jeff on January 24th, 2009
  235. Hi Tony,

    Thank you for all the valuable information that you have sent out. This has allowed me to re-focus personal goals.

    Although I am stuck when it comes to my profesional goals. I have worked for the same company for 17 years and my goal from day one was always to get to the executive level. I am one step away from where I want to be but I have been in this spot for 10 years. I am continously being told to just play the game and your time will come. But I can not seem to get in that door with the people that will make this decision to get me where I want to be. I am one of the strongest at my position and I have done everything and more that the company has asked including personal sacrifice, yet I am bypassed without an explanation. I see people with less experience get promoted. How do you get past the political game that seems to be completely out of your control.

  236. Earle on January 24th, 2009
  237. Dearest Tony,
    many thanks you for yet another AHA-experience video.
    My memory was refreshed on your talk in Aarhus, Denmark, a couple of years ago; and I realized how much that talk have meant to me and how I have lived by your words: Conditioning my focus and knowing the ability to change my mindset in a heartbeat. With patience and focus I am now in life exactly where I wish to be and moving on to get more of life - in charge, in gratitude, in focus. Thanks for pinpointing it to me!
    Let me also say that your New Year New Life video was really great! I firewalked in Brazil last year and you are so right about those first steps and then how to keep going. So apart from the firewalk giving understanding as to how amazing we are as humans, you brought me this new view to my firewalk, thanks.
    I hope to see you back in Denmark sometime soon.
    Will, focus and strength

  238. Tina, Denmark on January 25th, 2009
  239. For months Ive been reading some of the most wonderful TESTIMONIALS on here…so very Inspirational, the site appears more a Testimonial Site than a Blog! An excellent business rejuvination…

    Keep up the great work! We need this more than any other time.

  243. Tony: Finally received your new Change dvd series last week and it is better than all the rest, which I have!! And watched the dvd tonight and bawled like a baby watchng
    Gary’s story and how you guided him to “forgive” himself for his tragedy. Your skills are so powerful. You are speaking at the IEG Conf in Chicago in early March and I plan to come to your general session speech–look forward to getting there early to get a good seat–you have been my mentor and coach for the last ten years…Ive downloaded all your programs to my ipod and listen to you daily on shuffle when I run—your insight and encouragement and positivity are always a welcome part of my day! Thank you.

  244. Brad Back on January 25th, 2009
  245. Tony,

    Wow. I can’t believe I have the chance to thank you in person for the gift of Quality Questions and for the 10 Day Mental Challenge.

    I really hope you read this, because for over half a year now, I have been doing the Morning Power Questions every single day without fail. And I want you to know that they have - you and your gang have - completely changed my life and elevated my experience of happiness to such higher levels….that I now absolutely LOVE LIFE and feel so happy and excited every single day!….I can’t wait to pull the rest of myself up and see what else is up there on the table for me to enjoy. (There is still much for me to master - but for starters, I love being in such a happy state every day!)

    Just yesterday I was walking through town, wondering how I could be so happy inside myself, for no particular reason even when there are still so many challenges in my life. The joy has come from adding your wisdom to my existing spiritual practices.

    Do you know, this time last year, I was so worried about losing my marriage to the man I waited 30 years to find, and ran away from home to be with (to avoid having to go through the process of an arranged marriage).

    We were due to spend summer on a small boat sailing from France to Greece, and based on the conclusion of our last summer away, I was so worried I wouldn’t be able to last the course without ruining it for both of us, and losing him.

    Enter Stage Right - Tony’s wisdom on the Power of State, and the Morning/Evening/Solution Finding Power Questions.

    I now understand my husband so much better. And myself too! :-) And we had the absolute best time away on our boat and enjoyed our 5 year anniversary together out there too. I can now see so many wonderful qualities in him I was blind to before.

    And you know what else what? Whilst everyone else was sunning and sleeping every day, my day was devoted to studying the martial arts in the morning and your book Unlimited Power in the afternoon and evening (in between swims). Days of sheer perfection.

    Thanks to you and your gang, I had the best year ever last year! And my relationship with my parents is better that it has ever been todate too. Once I master all you teach, I know all my relationships will be healed and cohesive again. And I’ll be able to contribute more at last.

    Tony, I really appreciate all that you do. And your gang too.

    How can I tell you what it means? …maybe somehow, you will know in your own heart what you have given to me and those that I love.

    Your videos are brilliant. Please keep them coming. I’ve been telling everybody about them!

    I’m determined to attend one of your seminars soon. I’ll manage it somehow!

    I’ve asked your team when you’re coming to England to deliver UPW. We love you over here you know! And we need you too!!!

    Really, thank you Tony. And my heartfelt thanks also to your family and all who help you with your mission. You’re making huge beautiful differences in the lives of so many.

    Oceans of Love,

    I can’t tell you how much I love your e-mail video clips! I share them with friends, family and even post it on Facebook!! I’m a Realtor and in these challenging times, clips like these helps me pick up and ask better questions. You came into my life about 9 years ago and I’ve been grateful ever since. Thanks for being you!

    You rock. I have your new program “Creating Lasting Change” and it is fantastic.I have been using your tools for over 20. They have helped me transform my business and life.This new program is now taking it to an all new level. I’ve never been more excited about the future.

    Thanks Again

  258. Billy cox on January 28th, 2009
  259. Thank you, Tony. Life seems so much better when we learn to “love the questions”! Looking for an ever-improving quality of question is a really fun game to play with myself.
    My favorite question, which can transform my mental state in a moment, is
    “what can I learn in this situation?”

  260. Robin Ann on January 28th, 2009
  261. Tony,

    Thanks for the tools to get 2009 off to the right start. I dusted off “Get the Edge” and started it again. I’ve been a big fan for years. I’m always surprised how coming back to your basics seems like a new start again. I’m glad you’re there.

    I have to laugh. You mentioned in “New Year, New Life”, the momentum you get once you start the firewalk. I did the walk probably 15 years ago. It was a great experience. And, you’re right. Once you start walking across those embers, even the slowest of us learn to “pick it up”! The next morning at breakfast another participant was asking if anyone got burned in the walk. I actually did and had a purple welt to prove it for a couple of months. She was happy to see it (I took off my shoe and showed her) because she thought there may be some “trickery” involved in the walk. My being burned convinced her (and me!) those were real embers and damn hot!!

    Thanks for all you do. We all need a coach!

    Take care. God Bless.

    Dear Mr. Robbins,

    Twenty-three years ago I was struggling with finding a way to get my life back on track. I was drinking alcoholically and using drugs. At the end of my line, I locked myself in my apartment and refused to leave. A gentleman that I worked with had noticed my struggles and showed up at my door after I had missed two days work. He refused to leave until I opened the door and walked across the street with him to what he called a small gathering of friends. It was my first AA meeting. He was an angel put in my path.

    Two years into my recovery, I discovered that I was pregnant, another miracle, considering I had been under the impression that I could not have children. I made a vow at that moment to my higher power that I would break the chain of dysfunction that had been handed down thru the generations in my family.

    It was that moment my needs shifted to growth and contribution.

    The last twenty years have been spent raising those children and honouring that vow.

    During that time I have spent every spare moment working on my own growth and giving back to other suffering alcoholics & addicts. Not unlike your feeding people, after someone fed your family, I have a burning desire to help other people break their patterns. It was during this time I became aware of your work, and have devoured every bit of information that I have been able to afford.

    My children are now at the stage where they are starting to lead their own lives, and I am ready to branch out and dedicate my life to continuing the vow I made all those years ago, which is now my passion.

    Yesterday, I learned that you would be in Australia giving the DATE WITH DESTINY, In April, and it is your last live appearance in Australia. I need to be at that event. I am not financially able to afford it.

    It is my hope that your companies have some form of scholarship program, and I would like to apply to it if you have.

    My soul is hungry to help this world, and your work feeds my soul, I promise you, I will give back, and I will bring this work to others.

    I would like to thank you for all the work you do, for your consideration on this matter and your dedication to making this world a better place.

  265. Hello Visitors,

    I wouldn’t say it great video yet. If you think that it is great video then you have to prove it by implementing it into your life.

    Who are you? Where are you? Why are you? How did you come here?

    Please think and answer above questions to yourself.
    As always, have a great rest of the week!


  266. Farhan on January 30th, 2009
  267. Hi Tony,i purchased your new programme and wanted to post the blog .For some reason i could not do it and i have been advised to send this email.

    Any way i wanted to say thank you for constantly looking for ways to improve peoples lives .

    I have listened to many of you programmes and experienced the seminar unleash the power within(thanks to you son for getting tickets for me) i also had 10 coaching sessions,i also red your book,but let me tell this new programme helped me to put everything i learned from you together and finally understand how you do it and start working on my self in order.It like putting puzzle together.(keep in mind that i had chance to listen to first 3 Cd’s only and finished exercises) I can’t wait to finish the programme.

    I emigrated 4 times, i was burn i Russia,moved to Israel,Canada ,Austria then back to Canada and i have to tell you i had many different(dis empowering believes).I was so unconfined and shy that i was afraid to open my mouse when i was asked a question.When i was in Israel i was so depressed that i was thinking to kill my self,but one thing kept me going.Something inside of me was looking for change.One day my client gave me your Cd’s with RPM planning and that started change in me.I have long way to go to get to where i wont to be but now at least i know how and what to do.For some reason i always taught that we are given a chance to live in paradise, but as human beings without understanding our self and how to direct our thinking we created the world of uncertainty and greed.My ultimate goal in life is to master my self and help as many people as i can to change their lives.

    I wish you all the best.

    Thank you form the bottom of my hard.Edward

  271. Tony, Thank you for CLC. I have completed all the tapes and realized in the last day’s session that I need to get control of myself.
    Truly, thank a million for the “aha” moment.

  272. Marilyn on January 31st, 2009
  273. Hi Tony,

    It’s funny that you mention this because I was trying to reach you for 2 reasons… (talk about timing hehe).

    First, I’m building this non commercial Subconscious Mind website where people can download free Mp3 files to implant affirmations into their subconscious mind to both elimate self sabotage and attract what they want and to explain them how important this is, I posted a 3 minute audio clip where you talk about your own self sabotage when you were 19 and I was hoping that you let me use this little 3 min clip (please please please, let me use it :-) ).

    Second, I am recording Mp3 audio programs (affirmations) lasting about 8 seconds each that people can listen at night and I was wondering is it would be better to do those affirmations in the for of a question instead.

    Like For example, instead of…

    “…you make $500/week with your new project”

    it would be something like…

    “…how would you make $500/week with your new project?”

    It would be nice to have your feedback on this experimental project that could impact a lot of lives.


  274. Richard on February 1st, 2009
  275. Hi Tony,

    Using great questions is a proven sales method, so why not sell myself on happiness, wealth, freedom, and more! Once again you are on target.
    Sharing this message freely is a powerful demonsrtation that you mean it when you say, “giving is living.”

    All the Best,

  277. Hey Tony,
    WOW I love this technology stuff too! I now can come back and watch and get great reminders over and over.
    As a Mastery Graduate these reminders are terrific…. my heart loves learning.
    Thank you for sharing yourself with us.
    Happy Day,

  279. I would like to thank you so much for everything that you have done. You are a great inspiration to me. I am in college now and am in the process of reading your books. I would love to have a the privilege of being able to help people in my future career.

    I would really like to create a fan site about you along with your greatest quotes and information/advice. If you could contact me about that, I would greatly appreciate it, as I would like your permission.

    Thank you

  280. Alexander on February 2nd, 2009
  281. Hi Tony,

    I really thank you for your works. It changed my beliefs on what is possible for me and people around me. And more importantly, you awaken the giant within me and taught me how to use my Personal Power.

    I wrote a book entitled ,”The Ultimate Success Formula” and if you are willing, i will really want you to be the first to read it.

    I understand you are a busy man, helping millions of people everyday, so no worries if you can’t do it.


  282. Sean Seah on February 4th, 2009
  283. Thank you Tony. Miss your seminar in UPW. Now have waiting for you to come to Singapore in Sep 2009. It’s going to be awesome!!!

  284. Cyrus on February 5th, 2009
  285. hi tony
    to quote you nothing hasd quite kicked me over the edge yet in terms of personnel development including your own tapes and now these very useful emails im still finding it a real struggle though at times i think i may be struggling even with your help without it i would probably be on some serious medication. Any way are you upmfor a real challenge, forget teh rubber snakes and ladders and even the learned helpless wall street traders. after a traumatic stay in hospital at age 4 i have a major medical phobia i managed to get through a \minor opersation under local anisthetic last year thanks to your tapes plus 3 months of cbt and 3 months of hypno therapy but still found it so traumatic that my phobia is now possibly7 even worse. so heres the challenge get me to have a blood test ( not the pin prick in the finger one but a proper needle in the arm job for a cholesterol test (im 55 and shoukld really be having stuff like that done on a regular basis) live on stage infront of one of your audiences. O and by the way did i mention im also terribly shy and get very nervous and easily embarrasseb=d infront of people (like large crowds especialy). So you up for it cos nobody else has been able to get the job done. i will of course like your million dollar customers pay you a significant percentage of my next years income if it works , mind you as ive lost money in my business for the last 5 years this isnt much of an offer. If i dont turn things around soon ill be fighting the repo men for my copy of personnel power.
    i feel much better for that as i have taken action towards achieving one of my goals which is when i first saw the info mercial for get the edge and bought the tapes i decided i wanted to turn my life around enough to appear on one of your subsequent infomercials as an endorser of your programs still got a long way to go as the stack of one percents keeps falling over and having to be sorted out again from scratch
    one last piece of advice i need from you before i go ( i could carry on with trivial stuff for days) i still beat myself up for not making adequate progress as in oh no i only improved .75 percent today or i went back .63 percent on tuesdy oh no im a failure give me your best tool for that challenge.
    hey this sending you e mails is really a good tool i feel much better

    live long and prosper oops wrong web site
    live with passion
    ( this passiion person must have a very crowded house)

  287. Hi Tony,
    I have just finished reading Awaken the Giant Within and loved it! So here’s my question.
    I saw that you were coming to Australia in April 09 and was bowled over. I would love to meet with you but unfortunatley as a media student I can’t afford to pay for your seminar. Even if I could have 10 minutes of your time I’d be grateful.

    Is there any chance I could have a complementary ticket to your event or even help out in return for a ticket?

    I really believe that I will meet with you somehow.

    I am just embarking on a very exciting career in Film and have finished my first film script.

    I look forward to meeting with you one day as you are such an inspiration.

    Keep delivering the magic and have a great day.

    Best wishes
    Kate Rees Davies

  288. Kate Rees Davies on February 6th, 2009
  289. Hey, Tony.
    I have an interesting question relating to drug use. I have been doing a lot of research on drugs lately since for the most part, being a first year college student they are all around me. There seems to be a lot of propaganda about the effects of drugs and actually a lot of unknown information surrounding them especially involving hallucinogens.

    I am mainly curious about psilocybin mushrooms. I have experimented with them rather extensively and I can say from personal experience that they are not addictive which I suppose is a plus but really unrelated to my main point. The Mayan’s had a literal interpretation of this species of mushrooms they called them “Flesh of God”. I believe they called it this because of the profound spiritual experience that incurs when you eat them.

    I have also been reading up on theology and have found some biblical references that show that it is possible that Adam and Eve were allowed to eat the forbidden fruit aka it was not forbidden but there was some form of government that mandated the prohibition of the “sacred” fruit aka mushrooms and canabis and that this prohibition was in fact sin. The bible has no doubt been changed over the years by man and thus justified certain injustices and there are far too many to list.

    I was just commenting to ask about what your views on Canabis and Psilocybin Mushrooms? DO you have any profound experiences that you could share with me etc? Imagine that they were legal and answer the question if that helps.

    Thank you,
    Eric Geller

  291. What are the rituals that but you in the wright state and what are the wrong ones. And how do you know you have the wright rituals for the wright time????

  292. Calan Romero on February 15th, 2009
  293. T:
    You always show up with what’s needed at the right time. March 20th I will be sober 22 yrs and saw some good looking hyper guy on Home Shopping at 3am (no booze no sleep) I figured if you were full of it at least you were cute and I could look at ou on the Personal Power II set (1988 or 89?) So my sobriety was saved and turned into a great thing because PPII taught me how to LIVE. Last thing, I have been to UPW (scholarship thank you!!!!!) and am a crew freak, love the coals in the toes haha, and had been awarded a scholarship to 2007 DWD in Dec. After flying home from crewing UPW Atlanta in Oct/Nov 07 the NEXT MORNING my SUV was slammed on the interstate (I was awake for the whole roll haha) rolled 2x as I watched 80 mph traffic coming then hit by an oncoming car that could not move, causing my truck to spin upside down about 20 ft down the interstate (keep your race cars dude). I immediately thought I sure hoped I had made the world better than before I was here and I hoped everyone knew how much I loved them. Then I felt this huge, warm presence in the vehicle, calm and direct. I did not hear anything but felt a question from the presence and I said outloud (physiology haha) I AM STAYING, I HAVE A DATE WITH DESTINY in less than a month. It felt like the question was resolved and the presence left. While the first responders did nothing til they heard my voice (called the truck an ‘outta luck truck’ their nickname for no survivors) they were totally amazed that I was alive and awake. Having Addisons and Pan hypo everything (had the same tumor as you but at 28 with growing feet, they operated) I started to crash and told them steriods, call my endo and pray because I was headed to my date with destiny in December and I would haunt them if they let me down. You better believe I was there in Dec and am eternally changed and grateful.
    And now the blog. I call us Tony’s Kids and if we ever needed guidance and direction BACK TO WHAT WE KNOW it’s now and from someone we trust, which is you.

    Thank you for coming into my life years ago at such a pivitol point, giving my sobriety direction, thank you for the years of learning you have committed to and then sharing it, thank you for UPW and DWD, the opportunities to crew and give back, and thank you for committing me to the DWD in Dec 07. I truly believe much of my survival that day was the love and power from UPW the days before and knowing I had a commitment to you and me.

    Ok, one more thing (hmm, sound like somebody you know?). I want to thank God (or whoever everyone believes in) for giving you Sage. For all you have done for people, the country, and I don’t have room for the things you have done, but you deserve to be happy and content with someone very special and having been hanging with you for awhile I see what she does to you and for you and for that I am grateful.

    Bless you both, laugh hard, love often and keep the huge smile going!

  307. Hi Tony. I attended your Unleash the Power Within seminar in New Jersey over a week ago now and I’m still high from it ! Thank you so much for putting these mini videos on. It’s a great way to review all the lessons we learned at the seminar.

    I also purchased your RPM system while I was there and I’ve just finished going through the program and setting up my binder and it’s terrific. I can see this really working for me. I only have one problem. When I bought it there were no weekly planning sheets included. I think that was an ommission since the salesperson told me everything would be included that I would need this year. I decided to go on your website and just buy some but when I found out how much it would cost for shipping I didn’t. $80 to send a $10 package of forms to Canada seems a bit excessive to me. Are there no other options ? I really admire your work and would like to keep supporting your business but that price just doesn’t work. I’d appreciate any input you might have on this problem. Thank. Joanna

  311. Hi Tony,

    Another amazing video and perfect timing for me to. A great reminder that I am in control of my day and my life, not external circumstances.
