What Do Happy And Successful People Have In Common?

In this 8-minute video, you’ll discover one of the many key distinctions shared by happy and successful people: Clarity and focus.

And finally, you’ll uncover the transformation power of turning your “shoulds” into “musts”.

As always, feel free to share this video with your friends and leave me a comment here on my blog.

  1. What an amazing gift at a time we most need it. When a lesson’s to be learned, a teacher will be sent. Thanks Tony. (Leadership Mastery 2008)

  3. Tony -

    What a great positive message for all of us. Everything we see, read and hear lately makes you want to pull the covers over our head and say ‘wake me when it’s all over’. Lots of us are struggling financially, personally,and emotionally. Having a source to help us focus on what CAN be, not what IS is extremely refreshing… PLEEEAASE keep it up…

  5. Tony,

    Will you continue sending out these wonderful tidbits?

    Thank you so much for bringing these snippets to the internet. In thess extraordinary times it is wonderful and almost life saving to me to have an extraordinary person in my life like you. Thank you for sharing hope, direction, abd surety with all of us. I may not have the contacts that you do but I can only hope that every person that I leave a positive an uplifting impression on every person I come into contact with.
    The love energu that you and your wife project is incredible. THANK YOU !!!
    I can not afford it now, but I must send both my children and my husband to UPW. When I hit my goals I would like to finance an at risk young adult to come to your UPW once a year.

    I will see you at DWD 2008 in Orlando.

    Trinty, Fl ** HEY ANNE! I WILL SEND A FEW OF THESE OUT.. AS YOU MIGHT GUESS WITH 4 KIDS, MY WIFE AND 12 COMPANIES I HAVE LIMITED TIME BUT I WILL PROBABLY SEND A FEW OF THESE IN STREAKS LIKE THESE NEXT FEW DAYS. AND THEN I AM IMMERSED IN SO MANY OTHER THINGS BUT I WILL RETURN TO THIS! ESPECIALLY AFTER READING SO MANY NOTES FROM PEOPLE BEING TOUCHED. SEE YOU IN ORLANDO FOR DATE WITH DESTINY ITS MY FAVORITE AND MOST POWERFUL PROGRAM!!! ;-) TONY

  7. Tony! I went jogging with you at Life Mastery, in I think 1992 ish in Hawaii at the Hyatt Waikaloa. I haven’t followed you since much because I seriously set my goals in those 10 days. I did the Pamper Pole / Fire walk etc. I remember your trainers telling me I was an achiever as you made us run!. I was making $60,000 at the time at age 22ish. I thought I had more money than anyone I knew In WI
    at my age (FYI Mary Lou Schneider sent Me) so I focused on designing my wife. I met a Angie within a year that met that description exactly and TONY! we have been married 15 years now and last year I made over 1 million dollars. I barely made it through high school and never went to college!
    Tony, I am stumped, I have all I ever dreamed of, SUPER HOT WIFE, Great career, kids, toys/ fyi I started track days with a GSXR 1000 last year and am now an advanced rider doing 185mph at RA. I am living the life but frustrated that it came, I guess too easy???
    Gary Frank 920-997-8020 920-738-1970 home gary_frank2000@yahoo.com
    I would love my 9 and 14 year old, an wife to come to a sem and meet you, is that possible?
    You are the most important person to influence my life, period, Thank you for teaching me, way back. FYI I do give over 10% to my church, even when I am scared about the future, and I STILL HAVE MORE THAN I THOUGHT POSSIBLE.
    Live with passion bud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Gary ** CONGRATULATIONS GARY.. IT’S NOT THAT THINGS HAVE COME TO EASILY IS THAT MOST OF WHAT YOU HAVE (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF YOUR KIDS AND YOUR WIFE) FULFILLS YOUR NEEDS FOR SIGNIFICANCE AND VARIETY… WHICH MOST PEOPLE HAVE A HARD TIME FULFILLING IN A POSITIVE WAY.. BUT BEYOND EVEN EXPERIENCING LOVE WE ARE ONLY FULFILLED LONG TERM BY THOSE FINAL TWO NEEDS…WE MUST GROW AND WE MUST CONTRIBUTION IN WAYS BEYOND OUR SELVES –NOT BASED ON EXCITEMENT, SIGNIFICANCE ETC BUT IN A WAY THAT NO ONE KNOWS BUT OURSELVES. I MENTION THIS BECAUSE BY THE WAY YOU DESCRIBE YOU LIFE I CAN SEE YOU ARE A KICK ASS, COMMITTED, ACHIEVER.. BUT WHAT WE ACHIEVE NEVER GIVES US LASTING HAPPINESS IT’S WHO WE BECOME AND WHAT WE GIVE THAT GIVE OUR LIVES A SENSE OF EVERLASTING MEANING AND THE DEPTH OF FULFILLMENT THAT YOU DESIRE AND DESERVE. I AM SURE YOU ARE MAKING THOSE CONTRIBUTIONS BUT AS WE TEACH AT DWD YOUR “BLUE PRINT” OR MODEL OF THE WORLD JUST NEEDS TO BE UPDATED FOR YOU TO HAVE THE LASTING FULFILLMENT YOU DESERVE. SORRY FOR THIS OVERLY SIMPLISTIC PARAGRAPH BUT MY GUESS IS YOU WILL READ INTO THIS THE PATHWAY TO THE DEPTH YOU SEEK. GOOD HUNTING! ;-) TONY P.S. YES. BRING YOUR CHILDREN AND SAY HI AT ONE OF THE PROGRAMS. I’M IN ORLANDO NEXT FOR DWD DEC 11-16.

  9. Thank you so much for sharing your teachings and work so that others can find their way through the fog of life.

    I have recently began to adopt and adapt many of your teachings to try and help break free of my own personal imprisonment. Intellect can be as much a curse as a gift for many who have become trapped by their own unconsciously crafted intellectual/emotional prisons. The insights and tools you present have helped me unlock the first few chains and I hope to free myself fully and start my work soon.

    With many trials ahead I am thankful to have found your guides and hope someday to be worthy of the teachings therein and to be an example to my family and those around us.

  11. Awesome! This video came into my life on just the right day as I was agonizing over writing a section of my dissertation! Why agonize? No more negatives. I’m focused on asking intelligently! Thank you so much

  12. Margot on December 3rd, 2008
  13. Sir, curiously its said, “I would that you were cold or hot yet being lukewarm I will spew you out of my mouth”…hearing the pointed metaphor about selecting room temperature according to our indivdiual self image & the comfort zone struggle. Is it when we lay dormat,we lack growth?…within my silent self there chatters a monkey mind bouncing from object to object such a little monkey in a big world…I am seaching & knocking…To interfear with the universe beyond my exsistance drives me, balancing my entangalment in the affairs of this world, caution…I am not so sure that all that is, is to be any different, other than how I dispense love.. Mother Terresa embraced those who could not feel God , she being that representitive..I intently listen for the word of Him in whosoever will speak it…continue

  15. Tony,
    Thanks for sharing your insight. It’s always uplifting to hear your positive mental and emotional injections! Your messages are a true “shot in the arm” for the hard times we are going through today. I would also like to present and idea to you for a reality series where people could put to practical use your messages in their lives to achieve financial and emotional success.
    Looking forward to hearing more from you soon, as always an excellent message and a wonderful idea!

  16. Rae Nell on December 3rd, 2008
  17. Thank you so much for these videos. It’s a blessing to have snippets to bring these important principles to the forefront of my mind, and to have a place to come back to if I need a refresher.

    Have a Joyous Day!

  18. Mrs. King on December 3rd, 2008
  19. We really enjoyed that video and think it is great that you’re doing this. We can’t wait to see the next video you post because this information is priceless. We are reading Unlimited Power right now and are making life changes and creating our destiny. Talk to you soon.

  25. Hi Tony!

    It’s great to wake up in the morning and the first thing that I would do is watch the videos that you have posted! What a great way to start the day. Totally motivated!

    I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to create this blog and all the information in it!

  26. Li Lian Lee on December 4th, 2008

  31. Tony,

    Just as many of us are slipping back to old familiar patterns out of fear and strife… you fire a shot across the bow of our common ship. Thanks for the wake up.

    I stood a few feet from you in San Jose a few years ago after walking over the fire at UPW… I wanted to say thanks but perhaps felt awkward or unworthy. Well, I want to take the opportunity now, as I struggle with new challenges to say thank you brother, for sharing, for caring, and for reminding us and empowering us to create lasting change in our lives.

    I hope I have the opportunity once again to say “Thank you!” in person… this time I won’t shy away! Graciously yours,

    Paul ** HEY PAUL! PLEASE DON’T EVER THINK YOUR ARE LESS WORTHY THAN ANY HUMAN BEING! WE ARE ALL HERE FIGURING THINGS OUT. I REALLY BELIEVE IN MY SOUL THAT EVERY PERSON I MEET IS SUPERIOR TO ME IN SOME AREA OF LIFE. NOT BECAUSE I’M AN INFERIOR PERSON BUT BECAUSE EVERYONE HAS HAD A DIFFERENT FOCUS IN LIFE. I ALSO KNOW I HAVE AN UNIQUE LIFE THAT GIVES ME UNIQUE INSIGHTS AND ADVANTAGES BECAUSE OF 3 DECADES OF OBSESSED FOCUS ON WHAT MAKES US TICK. THIS MAKES ME TRULY FEEL WE ARE ALL EQUALS AT SOME LEVEL. I KNOW THERE IS SOMETHING DEEP TO RESPECT IN EVERYONE AND I KNOW I AM WORTHY OF THAT LOVE OR RESPECT FROM MYSELF AND OTHERS. WITH SO MANY WONDERFUL MESSAGES JUST WANT YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE TO KNOW I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THE KIND WORDS. AND I AM THINKING OF YOU ALL IN THESE CHALLENGING TIMES THAT WILL LEAD US ALL TO BECOME MORE OF WHAT WE ARE CAPABLE OF.. BEST TO YOU! TONY

  32. Paul D. on December 4th, 2008
  33. Tony, great lesson thanks for your help and leadership…!!

  39. Tony,

    That was absolutely incredible. Each and every time I see you in presentation or hear you on cd… I’m not only inspired, but I’m reminded of how easy it is take control of my life, and experience the fulfillment we all secretly desire. And this all starts with clairty, focus, and vision!

    Your free video footage is appreciated more than you know!

    Thanks!

  41. Someone tell me WHY I only found out about this brilliant guy AFTER he held his last show in Australia???????????????????????? =(

  42. Eman on December 4th, 2008
  43. Outstanding! I remember five years ago when i tended UPW and you told us about the power of focus and being clear about what I want. That understanding alone have transformed my life completely. The last five years have been like an incredible movie. The most rewarding years ever. Love, purpose, carreer, health everything. Thank you!

  45. Hey Tony!

    Thank you for this! I had forgotten how easily you are able to encourage me and make me want to change my life for the better. I read Unlimited Power 11 years ago and it changed my life drastically back then. I lost 11Kgs in 26 days, went for my first holiday outside South Africa 3 months later and trippled my salary within a year.

    Watching this video now I wish I had kept doing what you teach and kept following your developments.

    Anyway, going to start a change right now by going for a desperately needed walk, but I’ll check this blog regularly.

    Thanks for this!

    regards,

    Dirk

    Your video and speech really inspiring especially at the downturn of economy crisis, it gave me the inspiration of moving forward and gain more pleasure by using the downturn as the change.

    Many thanks to you,

  71. CAN YOU PLEASE FIX YOUR VIDEOS. BOTH TONIGHTS AND LAST NIGHTS. THE VIDEO DOESN’T COMPLETELY DOWNLOAD FOR ME.

    MAYBE YOU CAN ALSO UPLOAD ON YOUTUBE. THEIR VIDEO STRUCTURE IS REALLY GOOD CAUSE YOU CAN MOVE THE VIDEO BAR TO ANYWHERE IN THE VIDEO AND IT WILL START FROM EXACTLY AT THAT POINT.

    YOUR VIDEOS ARE AWESOME BUT UNFORTUNATELY I CAN’T SEE THEM ALL. PLEASE FIX ASAP!!

    THANK YOU

  72. Alexander on December 4th, 2008
  73. Hey Tony,

    One of the things I am grateful for is you. Your work impacted me greatly when I was in college and I made a life altering decision to pursue training and development as a career. I have stayed on course and started my own company about one and a half years ago.

    You are a force for the good and thank you for impacting my life in such a powerful and beautiful way.

  77. Hi Tony,
    I’ve grown a lot from attending your UPW and listening to your programmes. I find this idea of small bit of information absolutely amazing to exercise our emotional muscles… as I think you call them. In the seminars there’s only so much you can remember for some of us…. anyway!!!.. so little reminders on a regular basis surely open up new doors and I love that. It’s inspiring.
    Thanks and all the best.
    Love and light

  95. Tony,
    Thanks for this tremendous and outstanding initiative of yours to share key nuggets of your outstanding seminars. I have participated in all your Mastery University events and are also a member of the UPW Fire Team and have crewed several of your events over the years. Thanks for reminding me the importance of RPM and the key to ask specifically what I want and need in all aspects of my life.

    GOD will continue blessing you and Sage the way HE has done over the years and will reward you with a CROWN for all the good you have done to humanity. Let me HONOR you for your LIFE and the GOOD in you.

    Love my friend..

  102. Justin on December 4th, 2008
  103. hi!!
    i think you should compress your videos because they are too huge for most people to view on a normal internet connection.
    Also to download the video, it’s almost 100 MB that is huge!!

    keep going though!1

  104. sara on December 4th, 2008
  105. Thank you. I couldn’t agree more. Knowing what I want, adding the emotional power of why do I want it, and having a plan flexible enough to allow for adjustment when it’s not working. Very powerful stuff!

    Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all.

    -Greg

  106. Greg on December 4th, 2008
  107. Hi Tony and congrats on your 2nd video.

    These messages are so important. They never are out of date, so keep’em coming. Great reminder!
    A question: Is there a chance you come back to Germany to do a seminar? My country is suffering from so much negativity and pessimism (I think it’s partly due to the horrors we brought over the world during WW II) we really could need a new direction. I learned that you came to Frankfurt years ago…maybe it’s time to reconsider and come back? (I’d love to buy you lunch :-))

    How about it? Any plans to do so?

    All the best from Munich

    Gregor

    PS: I never got around to thank you, so here I go. In the summer of 2005 I purchased Personal Power on CDs. Being very very close to a deep depression I needed to change my life. I started your program and about 5 weeks later I quitted smoking and haven’t felt the desire to pick up a cigarette since.
    In early 2006 I found the courage to leave a relationship which had no future, I set her and me free finally. In april 2006 I met my future wife via the internet. In late 2006 I moved from Berlin to Munich to start a better job. And just two months ago I started working at my dream job (I am a movie critic).
    I got married this may. The last two and a half years have been the happiest of my life. If Personal Power would cost 2500 Dollars instead of 250 I’d advise people to go and get it (I did not get paid to write that :-)). It worked, it really did. So that’s it. Thank you Tony!

  108. Gregor Wossilus on December 4th, 2008
  109. Thanks Tony for everything, your easily the best coach I’ve ever had!

  110. Sean on December 4th, 2008
  111. Hi
    Thank you so much for your videos - just what we need to give us boost - and a kick along to dig a bit deeper.

    Unfortunately I am having a bit of trouble watching as it stops and starts. (could be our not so fast internet in Australia) The talks have been fine and uninterupted - it would be really cool if there was an option for the audio only for us in slow land!

    thank you for changing our lives so much!!! We have gained immense strength over the past 8 years from your teachings. I still pick up new things whenever I listen to a tape - even if I have listened to it 5 times(or more)! It depends where we are in life as to what we pick up on and take as important at the time.

    kind regards Judy

  112. Judy Hackett on December 4th, 2008
  113. Hi Tony,

    I had first listened to your tapes way back in 2000 - Unleash The Power Within - and have had such an impact on my life. With in 2 years of listening to your tapes, I was able to come out of a dead end job and start my own business. Now, I am a full time entrepreneur.

    This new blog of yours is awesome and the daily video you put out is excellent. I think, these videos, in this format, on this blog would be a great resource for budding entrepreneurs!

    Keep up the great work and thank you for the start your gave me!

  117. Hello Tony,
    Thanks again for your wonderful messages!
    I am convinced that excellence requires conviction, but I have some doubts about the “musts”. In my life I have observed others impose things on themselves, asking too much from themselves by following certain musts. Some of them got ill from too much pushing. Also, I had the chance to work with mentally disturbed persons and noticed that their thinking style is often based on “musts” (irrational musts if you want).
    Shouldn’t there be a differentiation between healthy “musts” and “insane” ones? And how can we decide the limits?
    Although I think I got your message right (in my opinion the contemporary illness is lack of motivation/drive/musts), would appreciate to have some clearance on the subject also for the other watchers.
    Thanks again,

    Ioana

  119. After seeing the $100s,I would have asked for more, taken it…and then called you weird!! :) hehe

    I didn’t expect a new video so soon! I look forward to learning new things to keep my mental juices flowing in the right direction. I value how you practice and preach contribution.

    “Life will pay whatever price you ask of it”.

    I love the lesson. I have just started Napoleon Hills book “Think and Grow Rich”. I am only on chapter 4 but I can see how the principles he talks about can work if one uses them.

    In “Think in grow Rich” a formula Mr.Hill talked about in Chapter 2 How to transmute ones desire for riches into its financial equivalent with 6 steps,the following is an exerpt from the book:

    First. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say, “I want plenty of money.” Be definite as to the amount. (There is a psychological reason for definiteness which will be described in the subsequent chapter).

    Second. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. (There is no such reality as “something for nothing”)

    Third. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.

    Fourth. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desiring, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.

    Fifth. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money your intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.

    Sixth. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. AS YOU READ-SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE YOURSELF ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MONEY.

  125. Thank you! In my dream I have unlimited resource but to get to this supply I have to have a real goal that will use this supply. To find that fleshed out Goal is the biggest problem I have, I think that what you have pointed out is very true and some how this is broke in my soul. My reason to be is lost, but that is the ‘comfort level’ I guess that has come in my life. Life will give you what you ask, I guess that is very true.

  127. Hi Tony,
    Thank you so much for this video.
    I saw you on TrafficGeyser! Wow! Never expected to see you there sir! Much love and gratitude from Tokyo.

  129. Hi Tony,
    Thanks so much for doing these videos. They are a great inspiration and just what I needed to hear. Its funny how that happens so often when you are looking for, and open to recieving, lessons and learning.
    You are truly an amazing man and have touched my life. Since 17 I have been learning from you and have made near miraculous progress in my life and in the lives of others along the way. Through me, you have impacted hundreds of people, and through my experience in that 7 year process, I have become a person of influence and inspiration in my community. I always love to tell my story of a young boy looking to get more out of life and being recommended to your personal power II program. The amount of serendipity and coincedeces that happended immeadiately after that moment were simply majestic. Affluence is now a regular occuring factor in my life and I will not stop here. I just had my 24th birthday and celebrated with a FIRE WALK at your recent Vancouver event. (which I attracted a free ticket to) I am looking forward to meeting you again in Florida next week and have a gift for you.
    Thanks for being an inspiration in my life and allowing my inner guide to develop and become a beacon to others. I will never forget the potential I have seen in myself from acting on the knowledge I have gained from you and other mentors, and I will continue to nurture and foster that ability in myself.
    You are MAJESTIC.

    how true is this. Its unfortunate that the media and central government don’t understand the contents of this video.
    All I have been hearing over the last few years is that recession is on its way - surprisingly enought its here!

    Thanks for these little clips - really enjoyable

    Tony

  136. Tony Lockwood on December 4th, 2008
  137. Another powerful and true message you’ve shared for these current uncertain times. With so many people losing their jobs, clarity and focus — along with grit and faith — are requirements. (I’m in North Carolina and we’ve been repeatedly hard hit over the last few years, this year and the last few months most particularly.)

  145. Thank you very much for the video upload, a nice way to get the message to a wider audience.

    I am certainly hooked and will be forwarding to my friends.

  147. I always find that Tony is a compelling and striking character that is so into people and for them to get the best out of their lives, and that means change. Whatever money it cost to see him live it is worth it, because the cost is far less in the long run compared to the changes you will receive if you put in 100% effort and combine it with the tools you will get from Tony. For that change that 180 degree turn about that you have always wanted. Nike says ‘Just do it’ Make the committment for the victory of your life.

  148. Sarahellen on December 4th, 2008
  149. Thank You, as always, it is nice to be able to keep the focus on where I choose to be instead of all the fear out in the mass media at the moment.

  151. Hi there,

    Just watched your “The Power of Clarify and Purpose” video.

    This won’t mean much to you - if it even gets to you - but I wanted to send it out there anyway: Thank you.

    Enjoy your day,

    Have a nice one.-

  155. Tony,

    You know what’s awesome about this video? It’s how I found it. You sent me an email to go watch it… and I’ve been on your list for a decade, yet all of your previous emails seemed like they were done by your marketing team vs. this one. ie: You figured out how to have a 1:1 conversation with me.

    I heard one of my friends was helping you (Jeff Walker) along with Kern, Filsaime, Koenigs, etc. Looks like some of their thoughts have rubbed off and glad to see you’re blogging personally!

    If you ever need help figuring out how to get more web traffic, I’d be glad to help as my site gets over 15 million unique visitors monthly.

    Later,

    Just got your 2nd email. This has totally focused me for today after listening to your inspiring message. It is funny how you know what you should be doing but it takes someone else to tell you before you do anything. R.P.M. good way to fire up.
    Thank you.

  167. I am in the process of finding myself, unlocking the potential I know I have. This is how I cam across your website (ted.com) and have purchased some of the books you recommend. I believe what you teach is the right way. I am doing my best to make it happen for me, too and I know that if I only stay with it - it will happen. Thanks for your support. You say helping people is what you love doing; you are helping me. Thank you.

    Great story… Life will pay any price…
    The blog is a brilliant idea and we really appreciate the chance to respond directly. We are catching up with an old friend of yours at the Gold Coast for a 3 day seminar, Scott Harris. Can’t wait. Love and Blessing, Margherita

  183. Hi Tony,

    Thank you so much for the gift of these 2 videos in the last 2 days. I am really looking forward to the next one. I just returned from Wealth Mastery in Melbourne where I was fortunate enough to reconnect with my Australian/Fiji family from Life Mastery in March 08. I now have a strong connection with them and I am very grateful to have renewed my focus which I am keeping everyday. These videos from you help enormously to keep me on track. It’s like those books that you can pick up and open to any page and find exactly the words that you needed to hear in that moment, on that day. Something else that has really helped me since Wealth Mastery is to read every morning these words ‘What ACTIONS am I committed to taking TODAY to consistently and continuously work towards my goals?’. And then I read my top 4 goals that I wrote at WM which I will achieve over the next year. This has really helped me to only invest time in the things that help me get closer to those goals rather than wasting time on what I call ‘the fluffy stuff’. Thank you so much Tony. I have now completed Mastery University and will also be glad to see you again for DWD on the Gold Coast in 2009, this time with my partner who I am excited to be marrying 10 days after DWD finishes. I met him only 2 months after completing my first DWD in 2006 and I know, without a doubt, that the changes that I made during and after that event allowed this beautiful soul into my life.

    I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL. Bless you.

    Love and Light to you and Sage and your Families for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  193. Hiya Tony,

    Thanks so much for the material you have been sending. I’m from South Africa and I have to tell you that I cannot find anyone here that sells your material. A number of years ago your CD’s were advertised through Glomail but I’ve never seen it again. Do you have anyone distributing your DVD’s over here?

    I have to say that I thoroughly enjoy what I have managed to access via the internet and then of course what you have sent recently

    kind regards

    Cheryl

  195. Dear Tony,

    Thanks for the videos - they were just what I asked for as a christmas gift!!

    How about giving Twitter a shot too?

    Lots of love from Germany!

  198. Nik on December 4th, 2008
  199. Awesome stuff Tony.

    Just wanted to say “thanks.” I’ve haven’t attended a live seminar (yet), but picked up “Time of Your Life” and it totally changed how I spend my time.

    Yesterday’s video started my day off right, and today’s no different.

    Never thought I’d get to thank you in person….But this darned internet fad might just go somewhere ;)

  200. Andy on December 4th, 2008
  201. Thanks Tony!

    Only 48 hours ago, during a coaching session with Jayne Jewell, I was struggling to identify my new goals, I felt that although I was acheiving my weekly commitments that it just didnt feel like I was making the sort of impact I wanted to, and therefore wasn’t feeling resourceful. I concluded that all my goals existed at some point in the future and that I hadn’t been clear about or celebrated the incremental achievements. I realise now that I have to set up these “way points” and celebrate each and everyone to build a sense of fulfilment.

    Todays video has inspired me to get clear and focus!!

    Cheers,

  204. Clare Jenkins on December 4th, 2008
  205. GUESS WHO??? I hope Im the first comment in here!

    The Shoulds into Must’s video didnt play smoothly like the first video it cut in & out frequently.

    May I offer a suggestion? Would you consider creating your new email video’s personally, meaning not directing your voice & focus toward a large group of people in a room, but instead to *us* the viewer making it more personal to us here in the internet world! We would love you to talk straight at us making virtual contact! Food for thought!

    Love your work regardless of your presentation preference!

  207. It didn’t work for me today, there is no sound. Yesterday was brilliant, although not sure about that shirt Tony!! Thanks for doing this…I am in my final year at university and am needing the support as my motivation seems to be flailing! I hope that i can make it work or whatever the problem is gets sorted!

    Thank you again Tony, you really are an amazing man.

  209. Hi Tony,

    I think it’s fantastic you’ve started a blog! It’s so refreshing to receive your valuable and positive guidance in a way that is so direct, personal and unfiltered. READ ALL ABOUT IT! - as they used to say in the News business. Tony Robbins has a new blog!

    Thank you,

  211. hi my name is olivier saintot from france and i just watched the two videos;i followed tony’s work since 1990 i attended seminars in us and bruxelles it’s a good idea this blog and to keep in touch with thoses kind of video,i’m sure that people will feel very helpful!
    see you olivier

  212. saintot olivier on December 4th, 2008
  213. Thanks for another great video Tony… especially with this message that I’ve been struggling with recently.

    By setting my standard to “own my own business” (or not have a job), I succeeded in exactly what I asked for. The problem is, I didn’t set targets for the business and haven’t taken it to the level I know I can.

    Who would have thought it’d be so hard to come up with reasons why I want to be financially free or be a millionaire… one step at a time I guess :)

    Thanks again,
    Craig

  215. Hi Tony,
    Very impressive talk. You are my hero. Nice to replay your seminar thousand time. I plan to met you some day. Now on, I’ve plan to take NLP Practioner course and struggle to find the money to get fees for that NLP course this May. I want to be like you some day Tony. Actually I’m from Malaysia. Adios!

  217. Tony,

    I think most or all of us here have either purchased some or “all” of your available material …

    So, these daily vids are a GREAT idea. Many of us really really want to see some of your older stuff, audio and vid that was never released to the general public. We have been all wishing that you would set up a tony robbins archive for us to view at any time !

    Because these different phases of your life parallel unique parts of our biz or lives, for instance, starting a biz you might want to listen to the earliest stuff, while trying to tweak your company you might want to listen to something like “creating lasting change.”

    Wish there was a way for some of us “veterans” to really communicate our ideas to you. I suggest a “tony robbins” challenge, where the guys with the best ideas get to speak with you and be involved with the project !

    Thanks for providing good value here.

    We sure how this daily vids keep coming ….

  218. nake harper on December 4th, 2008
  219. Does Tony have a program to help companies improve their liquidity? (cash?)

    My firm specializes in helping companies generate cash flow and I want to see if there is an area of common ground.

  220. Juan Colina on December 4th, 2008
  221. This is great Tony! Keep the messages coming. What a positive way to start my day! Thanks for a reminder to do my RPM planning for the day.

  222. Barbara parker on December 4th, 2008
  223. Always thought, “Where can I find videos from all the lectures, events from Tony that seem to always be recorded… I would love to be able to see them!”
    Now they come from the man himself!… Thanks Tony!…

    You gave me the tools when I was 22 to create the vision and structure to balance the Wheel of my Life. Great to see you active on the internet.

    Is the book “Inner Strength” only do in 2010??

    Cheers,
    Chris from Vancouver

  224. Chris on December 4th, 2008
  225. Tony, it looks like your message could reach many more people by doing some fine tuning and setting up a fun new media infrastructure for your blog.

    As a fan and a new media consultant I’d be honored to volunteer and support your new project.

  226. Nik on December 4th, 2008
  227. Hi Tony,
    Thanks for your work and for your energy! You talk often about clear goals but I wonder if having clear directions works as well. I feel more motivated knowing that I’m moving forward step by step without having too much pressure on me about achieving all the time!
    Any help about it?
    Thanks
    R.

  228. Roberto on December 4th, 2008
  229. Thank you Tony for sharing your videos… It helped me to see things clearer. Thank you for your generosity to share out your teachings. Looking forward for your future video.

    God bless and live with passion.

  231. Two days in a row, I wake up with my coffee and Tony Robbins!!! How wonderful is this!?!
    I have your series, I have heard these things before, but I have borrowed the cds out to a friend. It’s good to come back to your words of wisdom often, I find it helpful.
    Thank you for your advances in technology, you give me the incentive to work toward the abilities to use your coaching services Tony. I want that more than anything!
    “Live with Passion!”

  239. Thank you Sir. I need to take this reminder to heart. It’s too easy to get wrapped up in the minor details of life.

  240. Ryan Hollis on December 4th, 2008
  241. Thanks so much for these wonderful videos! What a fabulous thing to do - I’ve watched each just before I get my kids up for school and start my day (which is pretty rough if you wake up and the house is freezing and the kids dont want to get out of bed and the morning news is horribly depressing). This has really helped me to wake up in the right state and to remember all that I have learned at your live seminars. totally changed my state of mind on these cold mornings.
    I had received an email a while back from your organization, asking whether I would want videos such as this, but as a single mom the prices stated werent something I could afford at the time. This is truly a gift for you to provide these at no cost. Thanks so much, Tony, and Happy Holidays!

  242. Barbara Wells on December 4th, 2008
  243. Thank you so much for these videos. This has come at a great time for me as I am at a huge crossroads and about to take the next step forward. RPM is how I have worked before but had no name for it! I now have a conscious structure for the next phase…

  244. Kathleen Wells on December 4th, 2008
  245. Love your idea to share little clips of your seminars. Great way of sharing and motivating in these hard times. Much appreciated!

  249. Hi Tony,

    It’s been a while. We last saw each other in Salt Lake City in the late eighties.

    I attended the “Unleash the Giant Within” seminar and you took a picture with me and signed my copy of Unlimited Power.

    I wanted to say thank you for what you gave me at that seminar because it contributed to a big change in my life. I made a decision to take charge of my life and “live it with passion”.

    The things you taught helped me overcome a lifelong problem with an addictive lifestyle that hurt many people close to me. It helped me get focused, re-state my past experiences, to find my dream, my passion and to go for it.

    I have been able to start a career as a Stand-up Comedian and have my own show, and coach other comedians, because that’s the way I can contribute. I help people to laugh, and with that, give them a break from the hurts in their lives. Laughing helps them heal. And helping people heal is my passion. I love to make people smile and laugh.

    As we parted on that day in Salt Lake City I said to you as you climbed into the Limo: “Thanks Tony, I’m going to apply what you taught me and some day we are going to be friends” Well, the truth is since then, you have always been my friend and have accompanied me on many travels… because your message is anchored in my heart.

    Thank you for this wonderful Blog and and the new messages and mentorship. I will be telling everyone about it. I continue my quest and know our paths will cross again my friend.

    Cheers, Smiles, Laughs and Success,

  251. I am a student of Tony for past 5 years. Through out these 5 years I have gone from highs to lows to highs in my life, through it all I discovered a huge deal about myself and how I am in the drivers seat without knowing iit. Before I was not clear, never had a plan. The results were a huge degree of stress and frustration. Now I these teaching are deep and at least for me I need to go back time and time again and everytime I go back to the material I find something new to use to improve my situation.

    Without a dime I started a company. Grew it to 92 associates and staff.Sales grew over 2 million dollars per year.Why? Because I knew I must make it happen.

    Now We are seriously challenged to the point that I am losing sleep every night. Thank you Tony for the message, I wake up to this wonderful reminder. It re-engages me now it is part of my hour of power.
    Thank You Kindly

  253. Hello Tony,

    Thanks for the video…..

    I have ordered many of your programs over the years and my two favorite music cd’s to do housework to (I am a house-husband) are the music cd’s from the Personal Power 2 that I bought in 1995! I am tired though and am almost at the point of being discouraged, but as you said recently, being grateful does eradicate fear…….

    Thank you for your positive efforts :>)

  254. Jay on December 4th, 2008
  255. Dear Tony.

    At least this blog gives you a personal touch. Simple and clear.
    Your main site is professional, but gives also a distance between
    You and the people. So this blog is great. I am happy that you have
    A drive for this.

    Seeing your videos, listening to your voice makes me feel doing great
    Things. Keep on doing this. You changed my life.

    PS: While exploring the “whole Internet thing” what do you think about facebook?
    Would this be an option for you keeping touch with the people?

    Best wishes and thank you
    Neil

  256. Neil on December 4th, 2008
  257. Tony,
    Thank you for the reminder to be clear on what we want as we do continue to receive what we put our focus on. If we are not where we want to be right now it is because we have not been clear. I really enjoy the messages. Thanks again.

    Brian

  258. Brian Inselman on December 4th, 2008
  259. Thank you so much for the intention of sharing these videos. I’m sure they are of great value to many at this time.

    However, I know this may be very difficult for some people to realize but there are parts of the world that do not have high speed internet connection. I happen to be one of those people who live in an area where high speed internet is not available and I know there are many others as well. You are probably not aware that with a dial up connection yesterday’s video would have taken me over 24 hours to download. While I appreciate the intention to share valuable information, videos have little value to those of us with a dial up connection.

    I know you are solution oriented people, I would make the suggestion that you have the same wonderful speeches available as mp3 audio files. Or even as good old fashioned transcripts. These forms are much faster to download with a dial up connection and will help you reach more of your audience that you are seeking to connect with.

    Right now it’s very important to reach as many people as possible with messages of hope and Tony Robbins is a master of that. Please consider offering alternative downloads to get the message of hope to as many people as possible.

    Thank you

    You always bring me back to what’s important and what to focus on. Please keep the mini seminars coming.

    With all the negative news, etc. you are always the shining light in the dark. Thank you for delivering this to my email.

    Thank you very, very much for this free videos you put up. I have so long wanted to see and hear more fro you but didn’t feel I had the money to purchase your DVD’s etc. (I will in the future though;)

    Todays message is crystal clear and inspiring, thank you and I look so much forward to the next videos as well!

  271. Tony,

    Thanks for the “reminder” videos. I’ve used your material for years and have been to UPW. The UPW seminar is truly one of the greatest experiences of my life. Now, having said that, I’m getting lazy and your videos have inspired me to reevaluate and get back being a “do-er”. Thanks. Have a great Christmas. Stay faithful and finish strong!

  272. Lane on December 4th, 2008
  273. Hi Tony,

    Firstly,thank you very much for share your wisdom with us,especially in this diffcult time.
    I have downloaded your video and I’ll share them with my best friends and colleagues.
    I came to learn about you through Mr Chen Anzhi who’s teaching and promoting your lession in China now.
    PS,with your authentic American style accent, these videos are good materials to learn English. thanks again.

  274. Michael Li on December 4th, 2008
  275. Tony
    Over the years you have given me the tools to see my purpose.
    I am now finding it hard to find my new purpose with the loss of my job.
    Thanks for the reminder.
    Regards
    Ray

  276. Ray Czenszak on December 4th, 2008
  277. Thank you Tony! I have come full circle in my life and to have you coach me again is an honor. I share these with my clients and friends. Thank you for having so much certainty in your purpose! I am learning how to “want” again therefore, I ask. I appreciate you!!

  278. Beverly Orr on December 4th, 2008
  279. Tony,

    I have been to your seminars and they fundamentally changed who I am. These messages help remind me of the direction necessary to keep on the track you placed me on. Thank you for what you do. Your messages are universal and delivered amazingly. I always thought I was a tremendous public speaker until hearing you and now I have stepped it up and my direction has never wavered. Thanks.

  280. Michael Marlowe on December 4th, 2008
  281. A daily dose of Tony. Fantastic!!!
    Keep in coming please.

  282. Mary DeVizia on December 4th, 2008
  283. Tony, this is perfect for me. It is better than a morning newspaper to get your day started right. Oh my gosh! I just had the most amazing business idea for you! How about a subscription based business model for your graduates to enjoy. It might kill you to come up with clips like this every day, but I am sure you can dig up lots of clips from the archives. I am inspired today. Thank you

  284. Donna Cassidy on December 4th, 2008
  285. Hi Tony,
    I just got your email early this morning (5:00) when we are all getting up to get ready for our day. Again, it was my first email which was great.I listened and watched “Clarity and focus.” Of course, I am downloading it to my laptop so I can review when needed.

    I’m always saying “I need to be clear to my staff to what my expectations are of them AND I also want to be clear on what my staff’s expectations are of me as well.”

    This is real stuff and the key is focus, focus, focus!
    By giving us these videos this each day and being after to blog to others can really give us the EDGE, we can help each other and that’s what its all about!!!

    I hope my small input will also help others!
    Everyone … no matter how you feel…
    Get off the couch, get dressed, go outside, close you eyes, listen and feel your environment! Feel alive and then …
    put your mind in the right place to … listen to Tony!
    He’ll change your life! He has and is changing my life, my families life, and all around me! Don’t let anyone, especially YOURSELF steal your JOY in life! God has given you so many blessings! As I said yesterday in my blog, I got cancer in 2001 and that was a blessing to help me see life as God intended. With love, joy, and passion! Right Tony?

    Get out there and LIVE!!!!

    Sandy

  286. Sandy on December 4th, 2008

  289. Tony,

    Without knowing it you have been one of my top mentors since I was 21 years old (I’m 44 now) and over the last 20 plus years, your training and equipping has turned a long hair boy, into a successful man.

    This video clip was fantastic and I am going to take time today to blog on it and pass the love on to others.

    Thanks for caring more than most would think is smart.

    Never Give Up,

  291. Hello Tony and Sage,

    Early Christmas greetings from The Netherlands! We are so thrilled with your new blogs, (having both seen you in person) we are sending your messages as a gift along with our electronic Christmas greetings. What wonderful gift to pass along to contribute! Here is my Christmas thought for you… Why don’t you run for office in the USA? You would make a wonderful President!

    Best Wishese, The Jansen’s

  292. holly jansen on December 4th, 2008
  293. Thank you Tony.
    I live in London, England.
    You have always been an inspiration to me. You have in somany ways kicked me on the butt to move on with my dreams which i believe is in the process of achievement.
    I am working towards becoming a motivational/inspirational/public speaker, and my area of specialisation will be Personal Developement for Global impact.
    Please based on your persoanl life and career experiences, do you have anything to encourage me with.
    I have taken the liberties to speak about you to others and refer to you as one of the people i look upto.

    Many Thanks for all those strong words you rlease every time i listen to you.

  294. Hillary Davies on December 4th, 2008
  295. Dear Tony,
    You are the Best at showing the way and the solutions to a better Life!
    I can´t wait to hear your resolution to come to Portugal for a seminar!!
    I have asked your staff 4 years ago, and I am still waiting for an answer from you, to organize your event in Lisbon :)
    Thank you Tony for your Wisdom!

  297. Two days of great videos! What a great gift. The only thing I would say is you should be using my music. I hope we will talk about that soon!
    With all best wishes and much gratitude,

  298. Adrian on December 4th, 2008
  299. Tony,
    I am a recent mastery graduate and do weave my “Mastering Influence” bits between music when I walk and row a.m. but this is GREAT…it’s like Tony on “shuffle”. I can forward you to friends ect.. too. I bet you already know this is going to be an insanely powerful way for you to touch as many people as you can. It’s going to be fun to watch what your incredible mind does with this new medium now that you have warmed up to it. I read a quote one time that said “If you want people to know how [good/smart/capable] you are, give away free samples..” Keep the samples coming!

    I also don’t mind the old footage, I think it’s all great stuff..so you’re dressed a little funny..people should try to remember what THEY looked like then:)

  300. Cheri Riley on December 4th, 2008
  301. Keep ‘em coming Tony! Love it!

    I change my ’shoulds’ into ‘needs’…… seems to work better than ‘musts’ for me….. don’t know why…. must be a language anchor or something!?!

    :-) Craig

  302. craig gill on December 4th, 2008
  303. I bought your CDs in 1997 (Personal Power); and have been picking them up to relisten them again last week. And you have a new blog setup this week.

    I love your stuff. Truth always shines no matter, where they are displayed.

    God bless you, Tony.

  304. Roy on December 4th, 2008
  305. What a treat - two videos in a row! You know Tony, years ago one of my friends once asked me who I would want to be stranded on an island with - aside from friends, family and God. I said “Billy Idol (huge crush on him)and Tony Robbins because I think I could talk to that guy FOREVER.” I really could! What’s tomorrow’s topic? ;-) I’m adding these to my Facebook page. Thanks! Cathy PS - I liked your shirt!

  306. Catherine Sherman, New York on December 4th, 2008
  307. Dear Tony
    Thank your for being in my life, thank you for reminding me that you are in my life. And todays talk was very important for me. I hope your will keep up this work. See you again soon. Lovingly Lise

  308. Lise Hem on December 4th, 2008
  309. Dear Tony,

    Yesterday’s lesson was “what I link pleasure and what I link pain to shapes my destiny”. Today’s lesson is “Clarity is power”, “ask and you shall receive”, share your abundance. Thank you for all lessons and hope to get shots of inspiration daily. Activity done consistently becomes a habit or second nature. I will looking for you every morning in my email. I have also forwarded your message to severals. Thank you for sharing your video clips.

    With Love. Bhavana

  310. Bhavana H Desai on December 4th, 2008
  311. Tony…I’ve been a fan for a long time, and I LOVE that you’ve started a wordpress blog. Great way to tunnel and speak straight to your fans…Great job!

    I met you briefly in Philadelphia maybe 15 years or more ago, and I have remembered many of your stories and teachings…although I need to listen to one of your programs that I bought long ago, I will convert to my ipod and be on the way to more success.

    Lastly, yes, much video playback problem…lots of skips and pauses…perhaps you need more bandwidth or hosting power.

    Keep it up!
    Chef Tony

  312. Tony Marciante on December 4th, 2008
  313. Thanks again! Yesterday’s video made me get out my workbook from DWD and start the process of refreshing myself. My life is so far from where it was a year ago, people often don’t recognize me, the people who do are amazed, and I’m beginning to amaze myself! Thanks again for all you’ve done for me.

    Your pal,

    Dave Lundy

  314. Dave Lundy on December 4th, 2008
  315. Tony:

    I saw you in Orlando last month and it was a life changing event! Thank you for the gift of your videos as they help to keep a smile on my face and are flooding my brain with fabulous memories from UPW! Plus, I have been sharing them with friends and family.

    God bless!

  316. Wendy McCarty on December 4th, 2008
  317. Tony,

    So glad you made it to web 2.0 to rebuild relationships with your old clients. As always, your stuff is great and much needed in these trying times.

    I have noticed that your videos take longer to load than most others.

    Looking forward to the training in January.

    Pete

  318. Pete Hudson on December 4th, 2008
  319. Dear Tony, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING THESE PRINCIPLES LIKE THIS! May God continue to expand your territory of influence!

  320. Pieter van Dyk on December 4th, 2008
  321. WOW WOW another great way to start my day! As someone who was healed of Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis, going from 90 hours of work per week to 25 hours and TRIPLING my income, it’s amazing what this can do. But unless we DO it, we’ll never see it. As an ‘adrenaline’ junkie, we can feel like no matter what we do, we NEED to work more. Changing the way I think changed the way I lived and then, I was healed of Lupus, RA and other horrific pains of the heart and mind. Blessings to you Tony!

    After two UPW’s, Get The Edge package and personal power tapes, you could say i’m ‘addicted”.

    You are so inspiring!

    Thanks for changing my believes…

    Gratefully,

    God Bless!

  329. Tony-

    This is great information and I thank you for this advice. I have followed your advice for sometime now (since the very early 90’s). I have found that it is consistant with all the great heros of my life. It is amazing that folks wont follow the simplest steps to get out of a rut. People have gotten in a habit to sit and wallow in self pitty, myself incliuded. Sometimes It is easier to fall backwards then it is to walk forward.
    My only advice to you that I am sure all us Americans share is: DONT give todays advice to the BIG 3 auto makers, I dont want to see them beg for another 20 million on top of the 20 million they will ask for today.

    Your friend,

    Will

  330. Will Roberts - Modern Day Will Rogers on December 4th, 2008
  331. Thank you!! You are an amazing inspiration. My husband and I have had huge life changes since we started working with you and our life coach, Michael Nitti. Our new golf venture is just the tip of the iceberg. God Bless you and Sage.

  332. Susan Walker on December 4th, 2008
  333. Wow Tony, this was right on the mark this morning - I was in a really negative state when I got up, and you completely changed my state. This is a wonderful holiday gift, and I appreciate you!

  334. Brenda Keener on December 4th, 2008
  335. Hello Tony,

    I want to thank you for presenting these free videos. I have purchased many programs from you and books and audio cd’s in the past. For me this is a great way for you to say thank you for my business.

    I have been promoting your books and products for years to college students, friends and family to help them get a leg up early in life.

    I am currently in Puerto Rico on a consulting assignment and the internet connects here leave a lot to be desired. I am looking forward to watching them with ease once I return to Omaha, NE

    Please keep them coming and know that I appreciate this very much.

    Have a fantastic day!

    Jeff Collins

  336. Jeff Collins on December 4th, 2008
  337. Tony I wanted to say thank you for another great video I have seen major change in the past but had lost touch with the simple things that make the difference one of those is the focus of today’s video. I am excited to see what your coming videos will bring and am putting into action the advice you’ve given thus far. ON a side not your video reminds me of the music video Moments by Emerson drive in which a young man is inspired by a older homeless person. I is great to see a example in the reverse. Keep up the videos tony and hopefully I will be able to make it to a seminar of yours in the near future.

  338. Brian Nielsen on December 4th, 2008
  339. Thank you so much for these videos. Keep them coming…business is down…I need the motivation and the focus to drive my business!

  340. buford sims on December 4th, 2008
  341. These snippets are great reminders to those of us who have attended to your teachings in the past.

  342. Don Schenck on December 4th, 2008
  343. Dear Tony,
    I want to thank you for giving this awesome gift of renewal.
    These videos have come at a critical time in my life as I’m sure many others as well. You have inspired me to continue to drive myself refocus my thinking about my life and how to continue to be successful even when the walls are falling down around me. God Bless you!

  344. Shirley Mc on December 4th, 2008
  345. Once again Tony you make clear water out of a muddy puddle. I love you blog it has really inspired me to take a closer look at myself, my family life, and my goals in life. Thank you Tony keep up the good work.

  346. Sean on December 4th, 2008
  347. Enjoyed today. Thank you. It is a great follow to yesterdays video. You are generous and I appreciate it. Joanne

  348. Joanne Attebery on December 4th, 2008

  350. April Steele on December 4th, 2008
  351. Great to see you blogging Tone, About Time!!!

    Video blogging is even better, enjoying your video very much! See you next week at DWD!

  352. Maurice on December 4th, 2008
  353. Great way to start the day, my levels of passion and expectation are jacked up!

  354. Damian Gillies on December 4th, 2008
  355. What a great way to start my day…

    Lately I’ve been listening to Tony’s stuff from the earlier days. And taking baby steps everyday to condition my self for success and wealth.

    This 2nd day message is so uplifting…I wish Tony could send a message everyday that I can begin my day with. I will hold onto this message and carry it around with me like a seed…nurturing it with my own thoughts and inspiration….

    I have a challenge for Tony, to get out of his comfort zone on the consistent cities and states he goes to. The midwest would REALLY love to see and hear Tony up close.

  356. Denise on December 4th, 2008
  357. Tony,
    I think you are awesome! When I moved to a new state 5 years ago, I was bummed out and would walk around a park everyday. I was so afraid to step out of my comfort zone to make friends, and a person on the track loaned me one of your old cassettes from personal power. I have been a fan ever since! I am getting ready to submit salary requirements for a new job, and this couldn’t be more timely. Thank you so much for helping me get through hard emotional times. mmmwhah!

  358. Wendy on December 4th, 2008
  359. Thank you again Tony!

    Its almost like getting a new Power Talk episode in the mail. And its so great that you encourage us to share these videos, the world needs more focus and this can only help.

    Thank you again

    Ken Williams

  360. Ken Williams on December 4th, 2008
  361. Thanks for this video and your kind comments yesterday. I am looking for older buddies (50+) from Detroit/Michigan who are interested in living out Tony’s messages. Thank you for LIVING WITH PASSION!

  362. bob on December 4th, 2008
  363. Tony, Thank you. You’re doing a great job! Keep it up! :)

  364. Gina on December 4th, 2008
  365. Very Cool!! “Repetition is the mother of all skill” I love the spaced repetition that this blog provides. Thanks Tony you are a great mentor.

  366. Jeff on December 4th, 2008
  367. Thanks, Tony, for these great video clips! I love that they’re short–gives me time to think about what you’ve said.

    Now that I’ve thought about it, here’s my question: So what do you do to change the people around you?

    Your message about clarity and purpose helps me to work on myself. But what if I want somebody else to go along with my vision?

    I’m thinking about my community, where I live and work. To quote Dr. Seuss, I’d make a few changes if I ran the zoo.

    Anyway, Happy Holidays and thanks so much for sharing your special light!

  368. Saralee on December 4th, 2008
  369. Tony,

    Thank you for these video messages. I have not had the pleasure to see you live yet, but I do have your CD’s sets from the last decade or so and they have changed my life.

    I now have my own business because you helped me understand that I should have the courage to believe in myself. I found clarity because of you. Thank you so much.

    I know you do not have to do these messages for free and I want you to know that I really appreciate you.

    I want you to know that over the last 11 years I have had 11 surgeries (spinal surgeries) and I am scheduled for number 12. The last couple of years have been hard for me to recover from. I spent one year bedridden unable to walk from double back surgery. I got an infection in the spine after surgery and it almost killed me. One day I was lying in the bed crying and asking the Almighty, why. Why should I be the one hurting and in pain all the time. It was not fair. I wanted to pass on, then my little girl came in and kissed me on the hand. She said, mommy why are crying, are you hurting? Can I fix it for you? At that moment, I remembered your CD’s and that of finding clarity. I was in that moment when I realized why I was alive. I made myself get up that day and use my walker. I forced myself to move to believe in myself again that I will get better. I did. I have been walking again for a year now. I am back to work and now have a Girl Scout Troop with twelve 7 and 8 year olds that keep me moving. LOL! They do for sure! I wanted you to know that your motivational messages of hope, courage, and strength have transended me into getting healthier and happier. LOL! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  370. Melissa on December 4th, 2008
  371. Thank you Anthony for the videos and you up and coming effort to help during these times. It was perfect timing to reconnect with what you have taught me. I have lost clarity, identity and purpose. I just lost my job for the second time this year, going through divorce with 3 kids, and going through foreclosure, and living on a relaaive’s couch. But yet I have so many blessings. That was my story. So now forward to create a new one. I am in gratitude for all you have, are and will be doing. I suggest weekly or daily email messages.

  372. Rogelio on December 4th, 2008
  373. Tony, Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to send out these great life lessons. This came just in time for me. I am in the car business and as you know things are bad right now. November marked 3 bad months in a row for me. For most salesmen that means death in the business. I dug deep inside me and decided I would find a way to not only survive this trying time, but I some how will find a way to thrive.

    Thank you and God bless,

    Joe G.

  374. Joe G. on December 4th, 2008
  375. Thank God for you Tony! Your messages have been on target for me for the last 13+ years. I was a skeptic prior to my first experience with you however through your programs I have become a more complete person. You have made the difference in my life.

    Thank you for your work and for being the best of the best year after year no matter the weather.

    GBY

  376. Darren Morgan on December 4th, 2008

    What a GIFT for the second morning in a row!!!
    Thank you such~much

  380. KosherGoddess, Israel on December 4th, 2008
  381. Awesome, Tony! The entire country needs to see this and realize that we can reverse the challenges we are having. A recession/depression is a self-imposed condition caused by fear, and people need to know that they have the power to survive. How about a nationwide broadcast to spread the word–challenge all the negative BS that people are using to make their decisions now?

    Thank You! Say Hi to Jarek for me.

    Love and Gratitude and POI

  382. Howie Neilson on December 4th, 2008
  383. Tony,

    This format is extraordinary! You are THE ultimate force for good on the planet. Your work has touched my life in so many ways since I first purchased ‘Awaken The Giant Within’ back in ‘91.

    Growing up in a lower class family in the midwest and suffering under a physically abusive father from the age of 5, your words gave me the hope and courage to endure through my high school years and find a way to move to New York at the age of 18.

    I am moved to tears right now, as I think of the difference you have and continue to make for me in my life. The sense of gratitude is overwhelming.

    I can honestly tell you that THE biggest moment of my life came about a year ago, when you and Sage passed by me while shopping in New York City. I so desperately wanted to stop you and tell you how you had impacted my life. As you passed, you gave me the warmest smile and it felt like seeing an old friend.

    It is my dream to one day have a second chance to thank you in person for what you have given me and countless others… hope, faith, and ultimately our personal power. Until then, I hope these words can convey my sincerest gratitude.

    God bless you Tony!

  384. Rannell on December 4th, 2008
  385. Hi Tony! I’m excited to see the videos on the daily. The Gods must have been listening! There are no coincidences and my wife and I have been getting on and falling off of the health & fitness track for quite sometime. We just got back on the train and decided that we MUST do this for ourselves and our family. This acid lifestyle is so addictive and it has been a “should” for us to do better, but we “must”, on a fundamental level, make health and fitness a “must” because it affects every other aspect of our lives.

    Thank you for all you do.

  386. Jeffrey Marlow on December 4th, 2008
  387. Tony I can’t believe I have had coffee with you 2 mornings in a row:)

    This video is just what I needed. I have struggled with clarity and finding the big “P” of why I want everything that I want. I have always just come up with that I want to help people but I realize now that I really need to be more specific.

  389. I LOVE the new blog. Its one of the best parts of my day because it reminds me of what I already know and helps me to actually apply it in my life.

  391. Wonderful! - Thanks again.

    New Age concepts described in practical, real life terms.

    Inspiring, funny, fun and sad all at once!

    P.S. Suggestions: Put a “Comment” link below the video that moves people to the bottom to make a comment.

    Also, make the “request for comment” text below the video a link to the comment area as well.

  393. Dear Tony,

    Great to “see” you again. I attend your UPWs and Mastery and am working through the Power Talk series, however the Video’s add another dimension to the communication (excellent facial expressions and gestures).

    Keep it comming.

  395. The next 3-4 years may define your legacy. I’ve watched your actions, over the past 60 days, and realize that you may soon be known as “America’s Coach”. Your generous sharing with Americans, during a time when everyone’s feeling awfully down, is the perfect example of “doing what you love and the money will follow”.

    I’m sure your mind (and business advisers) tell you to hoard while your heart is telling you to share. Thanks for following your heart. We all need some TRobb, daily.

  397. NICE!!!!!!!

  399. I have seen you since you were in your 20’s and I was in my 30’s. Finally attended UPW seminar in LA March 2008. What a life changing event. Thanks for the tools. Sharing what I have learned on a daily basis helps me keep more focused on my goals, musts, and perspective. Will be attending Date With Destiny in Orlando next week, and expect a huge ROI as you have validated my BS today with the statement “Life will pay whatever returns you ask for.” Gaining more clarity and focus is what I am after and I am confident that I will return from DWD with more tools, more freinds, and most of all MORE CLARITY on how to ask more intelligent questinos.

  401. This is a great format! No technical problems on my end.

    These have been so timely. I’m trying to make a choice about a job offer I have in hand. Getting the reminder that life will pay any price you ask it has helped me have a different framework for thinking about my future.

    Inspiring and fruitful (as usual). Such a nice antidote to the environment we are being bombarded with recently.

    Thank you!

  403. Damn Robbins you are so GOOD!!!! Yay this is great and great job in blog message telling us when clip was from. I am so proud to pass these along to everyone I know - you are the best teacher I have ever had - thank you for always giving 10,000% to help others - we are listening and appreciative!

    Tip - when you play the video it says ‘holiday promo ver.4′ - that feels like way you save file internally - for us maybe change the title to say what content is - in this case ‘thepowerofclarityandpurpose’ -

    Keep it coming - this is perfect way to reach everyone!!!

  405. Great idea! I hope these videos will be an antedote for all the pessimism, that stopps people acting in a usefull way these days. As a participant of Hawaii, September 2001, I do know, what it means when people join together, facing the challenges and generate an atmosphere that leads to new creations serving the good and the better. Good Luck, Toni and all of us!

  406. Peter Kensok on December 4th, 2008
  407. Thanks for the message, Over this past year I have been inspired by you to start my own part time coaching buisness. Thank You for helping me find my purpose. I have enjoyed listening to to your live with passion, personal power class on cd’s. Thanks Again for today and yesterday’s FREE videos. Thanks Again Coach!

  411. Tony this is a great idea! I have been struggling and needed the help. I have a paper rout every morning and have worn a needle through the 2 CDs I bought at Fed ex Kinko The Edge. Would like to go on with the training, so I am trying to raise the money to continue. So I started a new business in October. Almost 50 million people in the united states don’t have health care because they cant afford it or don’t qualify. So for the Month of December Ameriplan the number one medical benefits company nationwide is offering there Dental and medical plans for $20 for the first month. and For everyone that enrolls in these plans I am donating $10 to The Rescue Mission here in Syracuse NY . $10 bucks will feed and care for 5 people this holiday season. http://www.freedomathometeam.com/lab this is my web site if any one want to enrolls in the plans or wants more information.

  423. Tony,

    Thank you very much for sharing this message with me. It remembered me one more time, that I am able to do anything I am committed to. I did your Personal Power, and It really helped me. Now, I am doing much better and I am feeling that I am very close to reach my goal.

    Thanks again, we need message like this.

  424. Elsy Mena on December 4th, 2008
  425. Hey Tony,

    Just wanted to drop a note and say thank you for this wonderful holiday gift. Deb Flores introduced me to your work while filming the “Get the Edge” promo in Palm Springs and Paradise Island. It was a a wonderful life changing experience, however my challenge is (and always has been) “staying on track” and keeping that focus that turns our shoulds into musts. These emails and video messages are a great help in conditioning that focus, and are wonderful reminders to keep going in the right direction.

    It’s great to see you online and blogging- For months I have been telling myself that I should start a blog, and with your example and inspiration I am making that should a must and am going to start one today. Unfortunately I never got the chance to really thank Deb and let her know what a profound effect her generosity has had on my life, so I will fondly think of her (and you) each time I do a blog entry.

    Living every day with passion,
    Michael
    Los Angeles, CA

    P.S. I noticed your mac in yesterday’s video, and hope your company develops some apple based RPM products someday soon. Being a fellow mac user I really miss being able to take advantage of your computer based tools, and I imagine there are a lot of other people that feel the same way.

  426. Michael Broussard on December 4th, 2008
  427. Hi Tony,
    Again, Total Brilliance. Thank you for keeping us plugged in and charged up. We all need a positive energy mentor in these adventurous times! Seeme each message is exactly what I need in the moment.
    With gratitude for all you do.
    Cathy

  428. Cathy on December 4th, 2008
  429. Thank you Tony. I have always been a huge fan of yours. While many of the other national best selling speakers/ coaches are spending a majority of thier time sending emails of their “last chance” and “blue light” specials of the year, you are sending free uplifting messages/ videos of hope and coaching when we all really need something positive and motivational. We need more of a giving attitude than a take-take attitude, thus the law of attraction. The more you give, the more you receive. Something we should all think about. Thanks again for separating yourself from holiday special authors out there.

  430. Jason Lopez on December 4th, 2008
  431. Tony,

    As usual, your timing is so perfect! I love the blog and the videos, I am so grateful to have you as a resource especially in this way. I have been listening to and reading your work for 6 years now - and I am learning more and more each time. THANK YOU!

  435. Thanks you Tony….
    I am so very thankful that whenever I am at my deepest of lows that somehow someway you are there to help me get back on track.
    I am excited to see that you are making a daily inspirational vid message available.
    Getting the inspiration I need first thing in the morning is exactly what I ( and probably many others ) need.

    Even though we have never met in person I consider you a personal mentor and I aspire to be able to help both myself and others that the power lies within all of us.

    God Bless us all and may all of you have a wonderful and Happy Holiday Season.

  437. Hey Tony: Big fan of your stuff, still working to become a TR poster boy :-)

    In the meantime, here’s a poem I’m sure you know, reproduced here for the rest of the readers:

    I bargained with life for a penny
    And life would pay no more
    However I begged at evening
    When I counted my scanty store

    For life is a just employer,
    He gives you what you ask
    But once you have set the wages,
    Why, you must bear the task

    I worked for a menial’s hire
    Only to learn dismayed
    That any wage I had asked of life
    Life would have willingly paid.

    – Jessie B. Rittenhouse

  445. Tony,
    Ask, be specific, and you shall receive! I forgot that very simple and very effective concept. One of my favorite things in life are reminders. This is a great reminder!
    A lot of people have the right tools in their head to accomplish great things, its just a matter of bringing the ideas and inspiration to the surface. I think you should come to Michigan. Lots of people here need a blessing like you. I vote for Anthony Robbins to turn the auto companies around! Seriously!

    God Bless, Nichole

I lost my job and am trying to not fall into depression about it and I watch your video and it immediately motivates me, engages me and helps me focus on what is most important and what action steps I need to take!

    God Bless You Tony!

    Thank you for these videos, I look forward to seeing more of them and can’t wait to see you in NJ in March 09! :)

  459. Hi Tony,
    I’m commenting this video blog, because YOU asked for it (I usually don’t do it). YOU mentioned it means so much to you, so it is a nice simple step to help YOU to fullfill your needs.

    I think it is a great tool (this blog), it is a fabolous way to stay in touch ALL OVER THE WORLD, at any time with you. Keep on going with your mission, with your variety to make a difference, your love to the world and your fun being you.

    Looking forward to see you one day again.

I have been inspired to get my CDs out again and listen to you. You are so inspiring. Everything just seems crystal clear when you coach. One day I hope I can attend a seminar!

  483. Tony,

    Thanks so much. I just finished Personal Power II, my first intro to your work. I love these free videos. The work you’re doing has taken everything I’ve learned from extremely powerful indigenous PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD, and put it into terms that jive extremely well with the “modern world”. I can assure you and everyone here (though it seems to go without saying): these are timeless principles.

    Like you, anything that works captures my attention. I study it, practice it, then share it. In the case of some of my teachers, I am talking things that work to support cultures that are sometimes millions of years old. Many of the people I’ve worked with have said it in this way: these principles are our INHERITANCE. Another way of saying this is, “It’s what we are born to do.” The Hawaiians call it PONO - righteousness - everything is in ALIGNMENT, and everything just flows. It’s a feedback cycle: aloha (love), pono (alignment), and mahalo (thankfulness). The Iroquois say “Everything I need is provided for me and all I have to do is to remember to give thanks.”

    So, Tony, this is all coming at a perfect time for us. My wife and I are creating a business right now to share such timeless principles of abundance and regeneration for land, culture, and self. Here’s our mission statement:

    New Leaf Regenerative Design combines ecological design solutions for land and infrastructure, with time-tested techniques for creating healthy, happy human culture, and personal training in powerful techniques of nature- and self-awareness to create a world of abundance, regeneration, connection, and resiliency.

    Your work is helping us to stay focused and “juiced”. You da man! Look forward to attending one of your seminars soon, and also having some space to talk with you!

    All the best,

    Nathan Meffert

  484. Nathan Meffert on December 4th, 2008

    Thank you for another day of happy reminders and anchors. At DWD’98, you asked with passionate intensity, “Why did you sit down at a million?”

    I responded, “Because Tony, I am worth a million!”

    Thanks for reminding me I am asking for more than a quarter.

    You empowered me to turn my shoulds into musts.

    I am just going through anther challenging period, having just lost my father and facing career uncertainties your video has come just at the right time, giving me a reminder that this is my life and I can have and achieve anything that I truely want!

    Thank you and best wishes,

  501. Dear Tony,
    I want to thank you for sending these messages out. I work in the finance industry and recently lost my job. Needless to say, its a tough time right now, especially for someone who has used your techniques before. I am relying on them more than ever, and not just the tapes either. The MSM Greens are wonderful and are really helping me through this. I’m getting the energy I need to make it through each day and keep looking to get back on track.

    A friend of mine who coaches kids football had a great analogy that I have been using to help me through these times. He tells his kids that when you run and hit the opponent, keep your legs moving. He says that most injuries happen when you stop moving your legs. I think losing a job is pretty much like getting hit in the gut, but I know if I don’t keep moving I’ll get hurt even worse.

    Good luck on all the events you have coming up, and may God Bless you and all the people you help.

    Down but not out,

    Andrew Natale **** Hey Andrew! You’re metaphor of keeping your legs moving is so accurate and powerful. I want to give you a boost. contact my assistant liz lizt@tonyrobbins.com and I have your email here. Copy this posting when you email here from your aol account. I am inviting you to come to Date with Destiny as my guest with the promise from you that you will pay this forward and help no less than five people once you have turned yourself around. I look forward to meeting you if you take me up on my offer. It starts next week on december 11th in Orlando Florida. Keep moving forward! tony

  505. Thanks Tony. You really picked up my day with this one. Might seem like a nothing statement to you but I really needed it more that you could probably imagine. This is one of those times when you touch someones life in a big way and you don’t even know you did it. I’m not sure I head anything new, but it was lik you took bunch of dirt off an old piece of glass that might have been blocking my way. Thanks again!

  506. Dave on December 4th, 2008
  507. Tony,

    This is what I am specifically asking. I want to spend a year with Tony Robbins. I don’t know how or when this will happen, but I know it will.

    I appreciate you giving back to the world. The world MUST have more teachers like you.

  508. Michael Simnitt on December 4th, 2008
  509. I have always loved it when you tell us not to “should all over ourselves”. When I create my to-do lists each day I organize the list into Musts, Shoulds and Wants. The musts, must get done. The shoulds…well, I try to hit a couple of those and I always do at least one of my wants, because that should matter.

  510. Melissa on December 4th, 2008
  511. Tony~ I just have to say how extremely grateful I am for you. You should know, as I’m sure you’ve heard this many times before…who you are makes a difference! in my life! Thank you for making the good choices in life that set an example for us and serving humanity the way you do. And for always having the willingness to be the highest and best. Anyhow, I felt impressed to share.

    Its taken 3 years to finally come back from the brink of death and a financial maelstrom. Opportunity and a fresh restart are now before me …to live the life I’ve dreamed of. Your words are like a lighthouse on a stormy sea. Thank you.

    We will meet one day. :) I know it! They say light attracts light. I imagine it will be as we serve others in the world! Perhaps I’ll choose to be a trainer of lifeskills! Tell me how I can do what you do!?

    In gratitude

  515. Hello Tony,
    It was so good to get ur video yesterday & today and can I say ur timing is Brill :)
    As I had been talking with my daughter about all the negitive vibes that are out there at the min, everytime the Tv goes on or we look at a paper its all doom and gloom & as my daughter is 20 years old I was looking for a way to get her to look at things different, She has been aware of you for many years as I have been reading ur books and have “Get the edge” All she ever said was “You fancy him MA” :) she never really took an interest nor did I force her to, But as we had our breakfast she sat with me and watched your video and thankfully she really took an interest and even listened to what you had to say. Now today she sat and watched today’s video also.
    The younger people really need our help and guidance as lets be honest they have had it good over the past ten years and really do not know how to deal with hard times.
    So thanks Tony, Your timing was great and as a mother I want my child to open up to other views on life as I know she has witnessed mant things in life.

  517. Hi Tony,
    I really appreciate what you are doing with these clips you make available for all. I enjoy seeing some sunny light shining through the big black negative clouds we currently see in most media. I’m sure your clips will positively influence peoples who are currently going through tough times but who can nonetheless fight back and succeed if they can maintain a good state of mind.
    I’ve enjoyed your material for the last 20 years and I’ve included a lot of your teachings in my life. Many times I wanted to say “Thank you” but I didn’t believe it would reach you through the zillions of other stimulus you already receive each day. So, if you are really there at the other side of this blog, I want to take this opportunity to send you the many “Thank You” I would have love to send you personally. You know, the kind of “Thank You” you send to a dear friend you didn’t see for some time but who was there when you went through some intense challenges in your life. So, thank you my dear friend.

  519. Tony,
    Thank you for sharing the video clip. I started reading and listening to your material in 2000, and made enormous improvements in my life, got a fantastic job and told everyone who’d listen that it was by following your guidance. I’ve lost sight of much over the last two years and now find myself, financially and emotionally, in a very dark place. Your video was a major wake-up and reminder. I need to pull myself up and climb that ladder once again. Thanks for opening the door!

  520. Toni on December 4th, 2008
  521. Hi Tony,

    many thanks for these videos…any chance to see you live in Zürich ore somewhere in Europe next year?

    Best wishes from far away

  533. Great Video,
    I like the time frame of the message… brief and to the point. THANK YOU!

    I respectfully ask your assistance to help me achieve my “R”…
    I have reached out to you because I
    believe you are a person that, “makes things happen”. I
    am on a mission, and I need your help to make it happen.

    Quite simply, here is what I am hoping to achieve:

    I am on a mission to make TGIT (tig-it), Thank God It’s Today, a
    national movement and catch phrase. I grew tired of all the negativity
    in this country and in the world in general. I decided that I was
    going to do my part, rather then sit by and believe that it is
    somebody else’s problem. So I created a weekly newsletter. It is brief
    and to the point. It deals with how to have a great day, every day,
    and includes action steps.

    I started with about 35 friends in my address book. My distribution list has
    grown to over 3,000. The feedback has been wonderful. My book, TGIT:
    Thank God It’s Today, was the natural follow-up to the newsletter. It
    was released on Amazon this past week.

    But this isn’t about selling books. TGIT is about creating an
    awareness. TGIT is a concept… It is a “Mantra” of appreciation and
    gratitude for each and every day! I remember growing up, and even
    today; people will say: “I dig it”… or “Can you dig it?”. I want to
    change that phrase. Can you imagine if people greeted each other by
    saying… “I TGIT (tig-it)”… “Do you TGIT?”

    I see billboards and bumper stickers. I see children and adults
    changing their awareness. This is such a powerful reminder of the
    gratitude we should all have for each day we are here. Can you imagine
    Pastors, Ministers, Priests and Rabbis saying, “I TGIT… do you!?
    What a positive impact this would have on everyone. Imagine if
    celebrities, and sports stars joined in. WOW!

    I am also in the start up stage of creating a series of books for
    children… “KidsTGIT2″. These books will deal with life lessons seen
    through the eyes of the animals in the jungle. The key character, a
    frog, will encounter another animal in the jungle that has a
    challenge. The frog will help the animal overcome the challenge, and
    when the lesson is learned the frog will go from saying, “ribbit” to
    saying “TGIT” (tig-it). My two children [8 and 12] came up with this
    idea. It is brilliant! Twenty six books… twenty six positive lessons.

    Forgive me if I have made this far longer of an introduction than you
    imagined. I am very passionate about this. I believe, Tony, that you
    can help me make this vision a reality. I would love to have the opportunity
    to discuss this with you.

    I hope you will make some time to review my websites and view the
    video.

  537. Everything happens for a purpose! My new job (for the past year) requires a 1 hour commute each way. I complained for a while, then I started getting books on tape from the local library to kill the time, and I picked up a little gem called “Awaken the Giant Within”! What a gift! Now, I love that drive as it is my time for listening to all your other programs! You’re so “real”, it’s like riding with your best bud! I’ve read your books, sent copies to my sister, and all I can say is when I’m doing my Hour of Power, YOU are one of the people I feel grateful for! Thanks for all you do, thanks for these videos, thanks for your insights, strategies….well, guess I’m just trying to say…thanks!

  538. mark on December 4th, 2008
  539. Tony, how is it that for two days straight, the topic of your video EXACTLY MIRRORS what I’ve been writing about in my personal home journal? Either you’re psychic, or you’ve been sent to underscore the truth of what I’m discovering about myself. :-) Thank you SO much for posting these videos. I must attend one of your seminars in 2009.

  540. JB on December 4th, 2008
  541. Hi Tony,

    This is one of your best stories! Thank you so much! I am so moved to tears and inspiration by all these posts ! What love and such a testament to who you touch and the incredible abilities of the human spirit!!

    The clarity message could not be more important ~ I have not done as well embracing that and I have let fear get the best of me ~ these video’s and the constant reminder of your work and presence are of great importance and very appreciated.

    You have sucessfully connected the human resilientcy and renewal of spirit and I am SO GLAD YOU ARE using this blog & video format to reach and uplift people! and a TV show would be over the top, incredible!!

    All the Best,
    Holly

  544. Agata on December 4th, 2008
  545. Thanks Tony for this powerful reminder of MUSTS, this is the second video I have received today around MUSTS and I know exactly what the Universe is telling me.. I MUST commit myself to getting my business set up. I am taking coaching through AR and am also working towards becoming a certified Professional Coach - UPW gave me the push to do what I know I love: help & inspire others - THANKS

    4 years ago I attempted suicide and thanks to a small personal development company Inside Out Leadership Development in Kelowna, BC Canada I was given the tools, support & love to bring myself back from the brink. I have attended all the programs they have to offer, which set me up perfectly to attend UPW in Toronto this year. What an experience, I have made many positive, but difficult changes and am Leading my life with Purpose & Passion.

    Thank you for your dedication, commitment and passion to make this world a better place.

  547. Dear Tony,

    I just want to say you are a ’spiritual lighthouse’ to us all & through your programs you have sincerely helped me a lot put things in perpective..
    I’m only 22 yet I feel more than often I stand at endless crossroads but thanks to you my path seems clearer..
    Your mere existence provides tremendous inspiration and your guidance is of utmost value!
    Thank you very much!
    I look forward to the day I meet you in person!
    All the best,

  557. Your first video about expanding your identity came the exact day i was focusing on…expanding my identity. I was only thinking about it. But it cannot be a coincidence,
    The message is; “pay attention on how you define yourself and expand!” Thank you super Tony!
    I write this just to let you know that somehow the universe has gave me a message also from your website… you have a great power, and a great energy. World need that we think better and you’ve making me a better thinker.
    I want see you again on stage, and bring my son with me. Without your teaching about intimate relationship he would not be here with me right now. This is priceless.
    With lots of love

  558. marco on December 4th, 2008
  559. Tony, keep up the good work. A new video everyday will inspire people, and keep them happy with a new and different message, every single new day!

  560. Brendan Ryan on December 4th, 2008
  561. These are truly fantastic , even though I have your tapes(bought personal power in early 90′ Fran Tarkenton) it is truly remarkable when we see your live seminar clips. Love
    to see you in Montreal Canada.

  562. Nick Makris on December 4th, 2008
  563. Tony,
    you taught me tenacity of purpose and a visceral appreciation for gratitude which I think lead to a shift in my consciousness;

    it humbles me to say this and I have so much to learn but I think that life does pay what you ask of it and spiritual awakening and an appreciation for the oneness of life is possible and real;

    I honor your crazy mofo ways !!

  565. Hi Tony,
    I am very Thankful to be blessed by God in many ways, may I have an Amen..:)..! Last year I was supposed to be at a seminar in the NYC Javit center. My friend at the time asked if I would drive her and her 5 pets to her new apartment in the Bronx. I was at the Expo in the morning but missed your Seminar, which I really wanted to be at.. Based on what I have been learning I created the image in my mind I would have another chance. I would have liked to have met you and experienced your live seminar. The entertainment was awesome in the morning when the dancers said Tony would like everyone to get up a dance, really awesome. I do enjoy the videos. Thanks for sharing the short movies.. I know you receive many notes and emails, but since I am being specific. I would like the pleasure of meeting you and requesting if you would be my mentor as you mention in your Books, Videos, CD; etc.. I would like a chance to discuss the many opportunities and possibility of God willingly working with you to help people and ‘Live with Passion’..! I know I am meant to do many great things so, if you see this and may spare a few minutes preferably hours of your precious time to chat or email me, I would greatly appreciate it, Thanks and God Bless you and us all today and everyday, Amen. Sal D. thats me .. from NYC.. ! Looking forward to your reply.

  569. Hi Tony,

    Thanks so much for these videos. At a time when everyone is so busy trying to sell or buy their way out of the economic situation, its so great when there is someone like you just simply contributing. As stressful as things appear to be in our nation and around the world, you can’t help but feel that kindness is making a comeback. Leaders like you are helping that happen and changing the world.

  570. Mitch on December 4th, 2008
  571. Mr Robbins,

    I was the woman blessed enough to work with you one on one at UPW in Syney Sept 08.
    I’ll be at DWD Gold Coast April 09 and am looking forward to that more than I can say.
    I wont go into detail here..partly I’m saving the reveal for DWD, as I’m simply blown away by the massive! changes in my life since I came home to Hobart and comitted to live with passion and make it through the plateus without giving up or diverting.
    You have been the most inspirational person in my life, your work is so powerful and truly for the greater good.
    (Coming form a girl who’s been a fierce loner and never accepted help or guidance…that’s a big thing for me to say.)
    I can’t see the vids yet…my computer is being painfully slow, but will watch throughout the day.
    I wept for the perfectness of the timing!
    I’m right in the middle of a BIG plataeu right now, with health, confidence and patience….but I blew a kiss to you and thanked you and God with all my heart, for the strength to get back on that polo horse :)….for more of the magical ride.
    With love, gratitude and the utmost respect.

    Sara Mae.

    Thank you so much for these videos. This came at just the right time. I just started a new job that I do not like at all. Everyday I have been depressed over the decision I have made. These videos are helping me focus on the positives of what I am doing and make me realize I need to change my state. Thanks so much.

  591. You know, the video was wonderful but the miracle is in the comments section. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an outpouring of love and gratitude. It makes me happy to be human and able to understand that gift you give to each of us in our turn and the gift we give back to you. It’s great to stand among your circle of friends.

    Thanks again (and again)

    It’s really amazing, how we get things we are asking for!
    I got your message, when i was totally frustrated. I was searching for things, that could motivate me, but there was nothing , that could help me.
    I’m from Ukraine and i just mooved to Germany for my friend, but we are not togeather anymore. So i’m here, in a foreign country, without money, family and friends.
    But now i feel,like something especial is happening to me, and i’m beginning a new life!

    Thank you so very much. I am a Vietnam vet that has severe PTSD (Post Tramatic Stress Disorder - Shell Shock). I have not been able to work since the first of this year (’08). I am having memory loss, uncontrolable shakes, uncontrolable crying spells, it goes on.
    I have your older version of Personal Power and am starting to go back through it. I hope that positive thinking will bring me out of this.
    Because of you, I have owned my own business most of my life and my family has enjoyed the rewards that positive thinking has brought to them and myself.

  623. Tony,

    Blogging is a true gift to the world, Tony and will help to augment all aspects of reaching out to everyone in the world with your message of “I can!” instead of “I can’t!”.

    Now to try and give my thoughts (the thoughts of the learner to the master) about your marketing efforts (that’s what I do for a living these days, so please indulge me!): I have always thought that the Tony Robbins newsletter didn’t come out nearly frequently enough for my liking. I’d love to hear from you at least once a month in a newsletter. I think it’s incredibly awesome you’ve blogged as much as you’ve chosen to blog recently. I just hope that you keep consistently posting something to your blog on a very regular basis over a long period of time. That kind of commitment to spreading your message in a regular manner really shows!

    Tony, I cannot express how much all of your work has touched my life. I have listened to nearly every one of your programs and just bought an RPM planner. You are one of the biggest parts of my personal self-help journey. All of the studying and reading I’ve done over the last 18 months has started with your work and from your love of changing people’s lives. These blog posts are a welcome Christmas present to all of us. If we carry joy in our hearts and spread that joy and confidence to others, we will overcome any of the so-called obstacles in our way. If through our firm belief that life’s challenges are there to give our life meaning, then this time can be seen as the most meaningful time many of us have seen in our lifetime!

    God bless you Tony, and God bless us, everyone (yes, I’m playing the role of Tiny Tim in responding to Tony’s blog…).

    David Meadows ** THANKS DAVID…I AM GOING TO CONTINUE TO UPDATE BLOGS WITH CONSISTENCY BUT BY THE NATURE OF MY LIFE THESE WILL GO IN STREAKS! I LEAVE FOR DATE WITH DESTINY TOMORROW AND THEN ITS 24-7 FOCUS ON THE PEOPLE IN THAT PROGRAM BUT I DID WANT TO SEND OUT THESE CLIPS AS A GIFT FOR PEOPLE DURING THE HOLIDAYS AND ESPECIALLY DURING THIS CHALLENGING TIME AND I HAVE BEEN OVERWHELMED BY THE RESPONSE. I’VE READ ALL THESE POSTS! ADDING THIS TO MY LIFE AS FATHER, HUSBAND, OWNER OF 12 COMPANIES, AND DEALING WITH MY NORMAL 250 EMAILS HAS BEEN A BIT CHALLENGING! IT’S 5:22 AM AND YOU ARE GOING TO BE MY LAST ENTRY TODAY BECAUSE I HAVE NOT GONE TO BED YET! SO I WILL CONTINUE TO DO THIS BUT IN SPURTS AS I SAID. GLAD TO KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN SO TOUCHED BY MY WORK AND THANK YOU FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOUR ADVISE. ALL THE BEST TO YOU! TONY

  624. David Meadows on December 5th, 2008
  625. Glad you reminded me of exerting passion when developing confidence and certainty. I will listen again to your subliminals on my CD version of Personal Power II with more intensity in incantations.

    Yes, physiology is definitely important in maintaining focus on what is important in life.

    Your approach to life, when applied in your emphasis on neuro-associative conditioning on a regular basis, is definitely life-changing.

    Thanks again for your reminder about living with passion!

  627. Hi Tony,

    I first picked up your book, AWAKEN THE GIANT WITHIN” when I was 16 at a thrift store for .20 cents.(I know right?) Reading your book completely turned my life in another direction. Since then I have purchased all of your programs and still review my goals everyday. Even my wife is writing her goals down. I have had some great influences on my life, and I would have to say reading your book was one of the top five. I am so greatful at 23 to be on track to living the greatest life I can. When I first got this email on my blackberry I was so excited! I will be following this blog every chance I get, and I look forward to going to many of your seminars in the future.
    Thanks always,

    Joe ** HEY JOE! WOW, STARTING AT 16 AND NOW YOU ARE 23 AND ON TARGET! THIS WAS ALMOST IDENTICAL TIMING FOR MY LIFE PATH. I WILL LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING HOW YOU SHAPE YOUR LIFE. REMEMBER THE SECRET TO LIVING IS GIVING! ;-) TONY

    and I have been struggling with finding a job or new career as I have not been specific as to what I want.

  633. Thanks for sharing these. I get so many ideas from you! I direct training for 7 franchise brands and present to small, medium and large groups. Sometimes I wonder why one day goes so great and another session feels like swimming through molasses. Today’s clip brought it home - being pulled multiple directions by each brand, sometimes I don’t make the time for the “pre-presentation” prep/pep talk to myself. What a great reminder! You have had a positive impact on my life at numerous points and I appreciate how willingly you share with us.

  637. Hi Tony

    This is a truly empowering video. I have researched so many self help resources and exhausted all NLP material with no fruit to bear until I came across your tapes- I am truly greatful. I love the way you have created not only unique ideas that work but integrated all that has worked with other people over the years into a succesful model we can all easily understand and use! I will hopefully be seing you in Italy! Your a top guy :)

    Kind regards

    Will

  639. Tony, muchas gracias por tus ideas, y por la inspiración para conseguir todo lo que nos proponemos

  640. Alejandro on December 5th, 2008
  641. Tony, Thank you for the recent messages. When things get our of hand, I tend to not realize that it really is a matter of making minor adjustments, which can result in the biggest changes. A couple of times I started getting goosebumps listening to you - and I am hopeful that I can start moving in the direction of my true purposes with the power and momentum necessary, and that I know I am capable of. I am sure we will meet someday.

  643. Tony, There is something more I just realized - I work a lot in the area of motivating others - through coaching and teaching. Inspiring is probably a better word for it, so it is important that I am inspired and that I have clarity of purpose. I have been struggling with this for a little bit, and your recent videos have been helpful.

  645. Hi Tony

    Thanks so much for sharing these with us. Carol and I should have been joining you in Orlando for leadership academy, (the flights are still booked and paid for) but unfortunately we had to cancel the course and hotel.
    Our story (where have you heard that before), we returned from meeting you at Life mastery and the opening of Oneness back to back at your wonderful island in Namale in March this year to discover our business sale had fell through and unfortunately we had to make our business insolvent.

    To cap this the franchisors went off with the money and we ended up having to declare bankrupt but…. this is the wonderful amazing part, this was where life began.

    We moved into a rented property but have just been given our home back because the credit crunch has put it into negative equity and no one wants to repossess it.

    Following Oneness we started going back to church and made true friends.

    Whilst in Fiji after trans-dance night we ran back to our bura and wrote out a plan of what we would like to do when we sold the business. It was a well being centre offering holsitic therapies, colonics and other treatments for stressed people. We have held onto that dream and even with everything that occurred we opened it a couple of weeks ago!

    Finally we have been accepted to be foster parents for disabled children and should be through the training process by next March so we can pass our new found skills onto others.

    This has truely been the most amazing year and we put so much of our thanks down to you and your teachings, they have helped us to stay focused on what is real and true to us and to smile all the way through.

    We would have loved to have been getting on that plane on Sunday morning and will both feel a touch of sadness we will not get the Tony buzz this year but you can be sure we will be back for more and these video clips remind us of what we are missing.

    For those of you going to leadership/DWD enjoy every second it is truely life changing “life will never be the same again” we are true testament to that.

    Thanks again

    love, hugs and a big high five

I FOUND THE WAY TO BARROW THE MONEY WHICH FOR ME AT THE TIME WAS MORE THAN MY MORTGAGE!

  649. Tony,

    THANK YOU for your inspiring messages. I have a question though. How can one focus on multiple goals that require intense psychological needs? For example, I find it hard to build a successful business yet at the same time maintaining my personal relationship and health. I mean it gets to the point where it is overwhelming. In some ways, something gives and I get fat again, or I get further apart from my girlfriend, or my business starts to suffer. PLEASE HELP AND REPLY TO ME AT: JOEVASALLO@YAHOO.COM. THANKS.

  659. Hi Tony,

    I must be security code challenged because my girlfriend was able to get her comments posted on the first attempt. This is my fourth attempt, so hopefully it will go through. I appreciate your email and video. Your message is timely and helps to shift the consciousness of the planet from “what’s in it for me” to “HOW MAY I SERVE”. I noticed that you read through over 900 blog posts and responded to some of them until 3:00 in the morning which shows your commitment to SERVING OTHERS! Your materials provide a catalyst to help others use their own “inner resourcefulness” to overcome challenges they face. I’ve been a student of your material for over 25 years, and it feels good to reconnect with you again. Keep the videos coming! I enjoyed your story about Mother Teresa. She touched many lives before she died. I look forward to seeing more of your videos in the future.

    Namaste,

  661. Toni hello.

    I am abit confused about how these blogs get posted because I originally sent one and seen it up, now as I look back my blog is no longer there. I am saddened that my blog was taking off. Can you please tell me WHY? I posted a blog about seeing you down in Boston Mass and how you changed my life. You truly inspired me and still do.
    I look at my boyfriends blog and see how much he tried to post his blog four times before it finally went through.

    Love and Happiness

  668. KD Churchill on December 6th, 2008
  669. Hello Tony (or team who reads this)

    I was very encouraged by the stance Tony had taken in response to current events, demonstrating not only his “desire” to help ordinary people in their greatest time of need, but also exercising his “ability” to help. After all, while Tony’s success has certainly been of his efforts, without the people who have so enthusiastically purchased his books, programs and tickets over the years, none of this would have been possible.

    I am sincerely disappointed that the vehicle created to assist those very same people in their deepest hour of need has become another hook to extract their shillings when they can least afford it. Many are out of work, homes are teetering on foreclosure, health plans are gone, christmas is right around the corner and now, the life-preserver many (certainly all who have been following this initiative) have been grasping is about to extract $300-400 from their already flat pockets… many will act in fear when they can least afford it. Very, very concerning.

    Stand tall Tony, either burry this program until the economy swings or make it downloadable for free.

    Struggling to retain respect,

    -Van. *** HEY VAN, I APPRECIATE YOUR POINT OF VIEW, AND YET I HAVE A VERY DIFFERENT SET OF EXPERIENCE OF LIFE THROUGH WHICH I SEE THINGS. I WAS FLAT BROKE, LIVING IN A 1968 VOLKSWAGEN BAJA BUG PARKED AT DENNY’S 24 HOUR RESTAURANT BECAUSE THEY WOULDN’T MAKE ME MOVE. I HAD NO FAMILY SUPPORT BECAUSE MY MOTHER KICKED OUT MY FATHER (SHE WAS A VERY POWERFUL WOMAN!;-) HE LEFT FOR SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDWEST AND THE NEXT DAY SHE THREW ME OUT AT THE AGE OF 17 BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT I WAS ON MY FATHERS SIDE. I WAS STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL SO I WORKED AS A JANITOR AT NIGHTS CLEANING TWO BANKS AND BARELY EARNING ENOUGH TO SURVIVE WHILE I WENT TO SCHOOL. WHAT CHANGED MY LIFE? NOT MORE OF THE SAME! AND NOT HANGING ON TO WHAT I HAD AND HOPING FOR BETTER TIMES!. IN THE BIBLE THERE IS PARABLE OF “TALENTS”. THE ESSENCE OF THE STORY IF YOU RECALL IT WAS THAT GIVEN THE SAME RESOURCES (TWO GOLD TALENTS) BY THE MASTER. ONE INVESTED IT ALL AND CREATED FOUR, ANOTHER IF MY MEMORY SERVES ME CORRECTLY HUNG ON TO ONE OF HIS TALENTS AND INVESTED THE OTHER ONE NETTING ONE ADDITIONAL TALENT-AND THE THIRD MAN BURIED HIS IN THE GROUND TO TRY TO HANG ON TO WHAT HE HAD. WHEN THE MASTER ARRIVED BACK AND ASKED HOW DID YOU DO WITH YOUR TALENTS THE FIRST MAN SAID YOU GAVE ME TWO TALENTS AND HAVE INVESTED THEM BOTH WISELY AND I NOW HAVE FOUR GOLD TALENTS. THE MASTER SAID WELL DONE…AND TURNED TO THE SECOND MAN. HE SAID I KEPT ONE OF MY TALENTS HERE AND INVESTED ONE SO I HAVE 3 GOLD TALENTS. THE MASTER JUST LOOKED AT HIM. THE THIRD MAN ENTHUSIASTICALLY SHARED YOU GAVE ME TWO TALENTS AND I PROTECTED THEM SO I WOULD NOT LOSE THEM BY BURYING THEM IN THE GROUND AND HERE THEY ARE SAFE AN SOUND I STILL HAVE TWO TALENTS. THE MASTER SAID TAKE THOSE TWO TALENTS AWAY FROM THAT MAN AND GIVE THEM TO THE MAN WITH 4 TALENTS! SORRY FOR BUTCHERING MY DESCRIPTION OF A GREAT BIBLICAL TALE! LOL ;-) BUT YOU GET THE IDEA. WHEN I READ THIS STORY IT MEANT TO ME THAT I HAD NOTHING SO I BETTER FIND A WAY TO COMPRESS DECADES INTO DAYS. I REALIZED I HAD TWO PATHS OF LEARNING…MY OWN EXPERIENCE WHICH COULD TAKE ME DECADES OR LEARNING BY OTHER PEOPLES EXPERIENCES WHICH COULD SAVE ME YEARS OF TRIAL AND ERROR EFFORTS AND LOTS OF PAIN. I CHOOSE THE LATER. I WOULD DRIVE MY VOLKSWAGEN TO DOWN TOWN LOS ANGELES AT 17 YEARS OLD AND STOP AT A PLACE CALLED KNIGHT EDUCTION. IT WAS A STORE FILLED WITH NOTHING BUT AUDIO EDUCATIONAL TAPES.. I WOULD SPEND FAR BEYOND MY MEANS TO GATHER UP AND GET MY MIND TO CONSUME THE PHILOSOPHIES, STRATEGIES AND TOOLS FOR A GREATER LIFE AND I LISTENED TO THEM AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN LETTING EACH REPETITION DIG DEEP INTO MY SUBCONSCIOUS. IN FACT ONE TIME, WITH OUT MEANING TO I BOUNCED A CHECK ON A SET OF TAPES! I DROVE ALL THE WAY BACK TO SEE THE OWNER MARIO MYSELF TO APOLOGIZE AND GIVE THE TAPES BACK UNTIL I COULD AFFORD TO PURCHASE THEM AND HE SAID TO ME KID….YOU’RE OBSESSED I LOVE YOUR STYLE. MOST PEOPLE WOULD SKIP OUT. TAKE THE TAPES LISTEN TO THEM THEY’LL HELP YOU MAKE THE MONEY TO PAY FOR THEM. WHICH THEY DID. MARIO DIED TWO YEARS AGO IN HIS EARLY 80′S AND HE LEFT ME IN HIS WILL HIS ENTIRE LIFETIME COLLECTION OF THESE TAPES. A RELATIONSHIP HE AND I STARTED WHEN I WAS JUST 17 GREW INTO A BROTHERHOOD OF TWO MEN WHO HAD AN INSATIABLE DRIVE TO FIND THE ANSWERS. EVERYTHING I KNOW AND CAN SHARE COMES FROM MODELING WHAT WORKS AND IMPROVING ON IT TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. I LEARNED THE LESSON THAT WHATEVER “TALENT” YOU HAVE INVEST IT IN WHAT IS GOING TO TAKE YOU TO THE NEXT LEVEL. THE INTEGRITY OF WHICH I OPERATE MY BUSINESS IS THE SAME AS MY MENTOR MARIO. I HAVE A MONEY BACK GUARANTEE OF EVERY PRODUCT AND SEMINAR I DELIVER. MY CLIENTS DECIDE IF IT’S VALUABLE- IF NOT THEY NOTHING. THE PROGRAM WE OFFERED TODAY IS MY FINEST WORK AND IT’S SPECIFICALLY ON THE SUBJECT OF HOW TO CREATE LASTING CHANGE …PROBABLY THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT SET OF SKILLS HUMAN BEINGS NEED RIGHT NOW AND I EVEN OFFERED IT (BECAUSE OF THE TIMES WE ARE IN) AT THE COST OF SHIPPING. THE SPECIAL GOLD EMBOSSED BOX ETC THAT HOLD IT AND MANUFACTURING COSTS MORE THAN $50 AT MY COST! FINALLY, IN CASE YOU ARE UNAWARE I HELP FEED MORE THAN 3 MILLION PEOPLE A YEAR THROUGH MY BASKET BRIGADE.. IT BEGAN WITH ME WITH NO MONEY OF MY OWN FEEDING TWO FAMILIES FOR THANKSGIVING! THE NEXT YEAR MY GOAL WAS 4 AND IT GREW AND GREW. THIS YEAR IT WILL BE WELL OVER 3 MILLION PEOPLE IN 32 COUNTRIES. WE ARE IN MORE THAN 100,000 HEALTH AND HUMAN RESOURCE FACILITIES EMPOWERING THOSE HELPING BATTERED WOMEN IN CHILDREN. I CONDUCT PROGRAMS IN PRISONS ACROSS THE USA AND WE HAVE PROGRAMS IN 700 PRISON. OUR KIDS LEADERSHIP CAMP HOST KIDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD INCLUDING DARFUR, BOSNIA ETC. I PERSONALLY MENTORED 2 KIDS FROM THE INNERCITY OF HOUSTON FOR 12 YEARS (FROM THE 5TH GRADE THROUGH COLLEGE) AND I PAID FOR THEIR COLLEGE EDUCATIONS. I DON’T TALK CONTRIBUTION I LIVE IT…THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO CANNOT HELP THEMSELVES AND WHO ARE FORGOTTEN TO SOCIETY AND MAJOR PART OF MY LIFE IS REACHING OUT TO HELP THEM. BUT YOU MY FREIND HAVE A PRESUPPOSITION THAT EDUCATION AND SKILLS TO CREATE CHANGE, TO STRENGTHEN THE MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT, TO LEARN TO MARKET AND BRAND YOURSELF IN THE COMPETITIVE MARKET PLACE SHOULD BE LEFT ON THE SHELF FOR HAPPIER OR EASIER TIMES???? LIFE DOESN’T GET BETTER UNLESS WE DO! PERHAPS YOU CAN CONSIDER THAT ACCEPTING DEFEAT IS NOT AN OPTION IN MY WORLD NOR WOULD I ENCOURAGE THAT FOR ANYONE ELSE. IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN LIFE WITH NOTHING LEFT BUT YOUR “SEED CORN” DON’T EAT IT PLANT IT! INVEST IT IN WHAT WILL TAKE YOU FORWARD. WHEN I HAVE STRETCHED TO PURCHASE SOMETHING THAT WAS DESIGNED TO EDUCATE AND STRENGTHEN ME I HAVE ALWAYS FOUND A MULTIPLE RETURN DOUBLING MY TWO TALENTS FOR FOUR. I’M NOT SAYING MY APPROACH IS RIGHT AND YOURS IS WRONG.. BUT ISN’T FREE CHOICE WHAT LIFE IS ABOUT? AND CHOICE IS ALL I AM OFFERING. I HAVE BIG TEETH, A LOUD VOICE, AND I DON’T EXACTLY HAVE DIFFICULTY EXPRESSING WHAT I FEEL. ;-) MY STYLE ALONE MIGHT TURN YOU OFF AND SEEM DORKY OR OBNOXIOUS– BUT ACTUALLY IS JUST ME…..AND THAT’S WHY IN OUR SOCIETY YOU HAVE SO MANY CHOICES. I’M NOT HERE TO BE A GURU. I’M JUST A MAN WHO LOVES PEOPLE AND WHO FOR THIRTY YEARS HAS FOUND GETTING THE ANSWERS HAS BEEN MORE THAN WORTH MY TIME, MONEY, EFFORT, AND RISKS….BECAUSE THROUGH WHAT I HAVE LEARNED I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HELP MILLIONS OF PEOPLE FIND WAYS TO HELP THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES. JUST ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW TO THINK ABOUT! ;-) ALL THE BEST TO YOU, TONY

  670. Van on December 7th, 2008
  671. Tony,

    Love the videos. On my personal path of self-development, I’ve sampled everyone (Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar, etc). You consistently outrank everyone in your skill and abilities.

    Per your request, at the end of Personal Power II, you asked me to write to you and tell you what the program has done for me. I thought this may be a decent way to do it, as it seems you actually look through these comments. I don’t need a response, as I’m certain your time is extremely limited.

    First, if you’ll bear with me, I’d like to give you a little background.

    In 1996, I was stationed at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii. Being in the military was the first time I was away from the certainty of home…and also the first time I consciously realized I could make my own way in the world…through my own power, though I was a little uncertain about that at the time.

    I wanted to do great in the military. Upon meeting with my first sergeant in the military, he asked me at the end of that meeting if I had any questions. My question to him was, “How can I do great here?” He told me what to do. I did it.

    One of the items was to volunteer. I was used to that. One of the volunteer opportunities that came to me was becoming dorm “president” of the new dorm…which was more or less a liaison to “upper management” and key person for any issues that arose in the dorm for the residents.

    Through that position, I came to meet a person named Toby Darby. He was a law enforcement officer on the base. He was also “into” fitness. He lifted weights…and you could tell. He was the most “cut” person I had ever met in real life. I got excited to know that you really could do that without steroids and asked him how he did it.

    He told me one word…goals.

    That’s when you came into my life. He introduced me to the program called Personal Power II. He talked to me about goals, which was, at the very best, a fuzzy concept to me before that day.

    I borrowed the program from him. He ended up giving it to me.

    I got very excited about the program…so excited that it sat on my shelf for five years…with me through two household moves…into a marriage.

    Fast forward four years. I pulled PPII down off the shelf one day …set a massive amount of goals with plans to reach them.

    My first goal (which, at the time, seemed insurmountable to me) was to take and pass the A+ certification (a computer certification measuring your ability to troubleshoot both software and hardware…two tests).

    I set the goal in early 2000 that I would have the A+ certification by the end of the year…again it seemed impossible. But, I went ahead and outlined the steps I needed to take, on the faith that what you were telling me in PPII was correct.

    Then, I worked my guts out. I studied like crazy. I took practice tests. I paid for a class to learn the A+ (and I was making very little money at the time). I studied again and again. I even got permission to study on company time for (at times) up to three hours a day. I didn’t realize at the time what I was doing, but it truly was the massive action you talk about in every single one of your programs.

    In November of that year, on the same day, I took and passed both exams and achieved the certification.

    Tony, I have to tell you, when I walked out of that testing center, something inside of me clicked. For the first time in my life, I had CERTAINTY that I could design and develop my life…because of the principles you outline in your teachings.

    In the following years, I continued practicing CANI in that specific area of my life…continued setting and achieving goals. I went on to obtain forty-two computer certifications. FORTY-TWO! I also had the realization that since I could do it with my career, I could also just simply make small and consistent changes in other areas of my life and the same thing would happen across the board.

    Financially, I went from making $8.00 an hour in 2000 to six figures in 2007…renting an apartment to owning a NICE house sitting on 2.5 acres of land in Indiana, but was still working as an employee (nothing wrong with that…just not utilizing my full personal power, in my opinion).

    In early June of 2008, with a friend I met on the community forum on your anthonyrobbins.com website, a company was formed under our leadership. My goal is to generate more net worth than your record of 1 million in 12 months, and we’re on our way. I say, “What recession?”

    I am continually making new distinctions. I consider myself a stubborn learner, so I listen to you every day. Every time I listen, I improve incrementally. I can see the changes…and they’re very exciting.

    I have learned through this program that you created that I am master of my destiny…I am my own decision maker. No one else has control over my life, except the control I allow them to have. That’s POWER.

    I have a long way to go…and it will never end. But, when I look back at where I was and look where I am, it’s amazing the progress that has been achieved, in such a relatively short period of time.

    So, thank you for doing what you do. Thank you for showing me the way to passion.

    Keep rockin’!

    Adam Roehm ** congratulations on the depth of your commitment Adam. You’re gifts will make room for you! god bless! tony

  672. Adam Roehm on December 7th, 2008
  673. Your messages are profound and inspiring. I thank you for the last two “gift messages” you have sent.

    I also wanted to say to those of you considering Tony’s CD series “Creating Lasting Change”…

    DO NOT hesitate. This has to be Tony’s best work ever. It can take a coaches business from beginning to mastery very quickly.

    Hi Tony-
    This is WONDERFUL. Thank you SO MUCH for giving this to people at this difficult time for so many. It’s a beautiful expression of the generosity of spirit I’ve so admired in you every time I’ve seen you in action.

    At the same time, I think I see a way that WHAT YOU’RE DOING HERE COULD BE SO MUCH MORE IMPACTFUL!

    I know it’s more than a little presumptuous for me to make suggestions of how YOU might be able to be more effective! But it seems to me that you’re limiting your impact in this blog in a way that I’ve seen you limit your impact before.

    Let me watch one more video: maybe I’m missing something. Then, if I still see what I think I see, I’ll tell you what I’m talking about. :-)

    Warm regards,
    Kalen Hammann

  677. Hi Tony

    I attended your UPW in Feb 06 London, and my life has changed dramatically since then as a wonderful result of the new decisions I was able to make that weekend. Yet, this video has come as an ‘ouch’ reminder that just this morning I had momentarily entered into the old old pattern of ‘lack’ mentality in a conversation with a friend.

    Watching this video has spun me around and woken me up in time to correct this and make something different happen.

    Thank you so much for this timely reminder. Oh those marvelous non-coincidences, I adore them! xx

  678. Dawn Berry on December 7th, 2008

  680. Joe Santini on December 8th, 2008
  681. Hi,

    I watched your first video the other week and was very impressed and then carried on working. A friend later rang who has cerebral palsy and was terrified of being baptised because of a fear of water. (full immersion). I related the main points of the video to him and in particular the piece about pain and pleasure. He’s just rang me to say that he was baptised on Saturday and that he had no fear and could hardly put into words his feelings.I said i’d pass on his thanks to you for the help you undoubtedly supplied.

    Keep up the good work, I trust you realise you are touching many hearts. *** Hey Lloyd! Wow! I am so touched that you and I could partner in helping your dear friend so he could experience the sacred ritual of baptism without fear! Please give him my congratulations and love and again thank you for “paying it forward” ;-) I hope our paths cross some day. Tony

  682. Lloyd Rumsey on December 8th, 2008
  683. Tony;

    I have listened to you for so many years and you have made such a huge impact in my life; both personal and professional. You have a away about you that moves people to succeed. I always know I can do whatever I put my mind to but you continue to teach me and move me into places I would never have thought to go.

    Thank you for continuing to make a difference in my life.

  684. Elizabeth on December 8th, 2008
  685. unfortunately, I was unable to hear most of it. Do you have this in a written form, so that I could at least read it?
    Thank you for sharing this with us!

  686. Tysha Bohorkez on December 8th, 2008
  687. Hi Tony,
    Thanks for the videos. I wrote out your INCANTATION on wealth and have been doing it for three days now, twice daily.

    I 2002 I quit my job and went full-time into my business, or so I thought. It’s now 2008. I failed at that business, I have been in a downward spiral since 2003 when I had to sell my house and with no job and at age 36 had to move in with my in-laws. I’ve told you this much because I want your help. I know exactly what I want and will do whatever it takes to get it. I just need the correct avenue, the right advice.

    What can I do to get my life where I want it? It hurts more and more daily and I just can’t seem to make it right.

    I value you and any advice you have to help me rebuild my life and be the provider I’m supossed to be for my family and for myself.

    Thanks.
    Allen Taylor *** hey allen! Contact my assistant lizt@tonyrobbins.com and I will have a message for you there. Reach out today if you can. You’re life is about to change. All the best, Tony

  689. Tony appreciate your short email videos. I have many of your cds. You used to send monthly powertalk audio cds which I loved to listen to in my car. Any thought of doing it again?-Gary

  691. Dear Tony,

    Thank you for an inspiring video clip.

    We (my family) thank you for sharing your thoughts and knowledge with us all.

    You have changed our lives for the better.
    Our story started in 2005 after attending UPW 2005. That was the year when I had taken 6 months unpaid leave to decide what was I going to do with my life going forward. Two years later, I started my own business and resigned from my job of 14 yrs in an international financial institution.

    After UPW, we went on to do the Mastery University.

    A big thank you from all three

  693. Tony, your seminar (UPW) in San Jose of 2004 changed my life forever. I came back so pumped up that I immediately bought my girlfriend a ticket to UPW in New Jersey. We got engaged on a carriage around Central Park with the snow falling and life is pretty darn good compared to before YOU. In my studio, to get an instructor’s certificate, one must attend a UPW!
    Also, the Firewalk was so life changing that I began doing my own and just recently held Firewalk #9… complete with City Mayor, Fire Department and Police Department participating!
    You have made our business a success. At our next Firewalk in July of 2009, Century Martial Arts has asked to attend; the OWN the UFC!!!

    Where would I be without you? Most likely dead by now.

    Thanks,

  695. Mr. Robbins,
    I cannot thank you enough for the inspirations and insights you have given to me for my life. I have been struggling with how to apply on a daily basis what I have learned at UPW and Mastery University for myself. It seems like I struggle along, learn delightedly for awhile and then lose some of what I havd gained. Then I get frustrated. However, I have tried something that other people might want to try. I have been working on listing just what things I would do (behaviors) that would make the key difference if I applied them in my life. You said at one time that the more often you measure an outcome, the more likely it is that the outcome will be reached. So, I’ve been working on developing daily habits that put me into an extraordinary mindset and then daily habits that move me toward what I want in my life.

    One thing that I did after Date with Destiny was to create my own morning CD where I use music and my voice to take me through my morning questions, powermove, moving toward values, and visualizations to open the doors to the future in my life. This has helped me a great deal because turning on the stereo in the morning is automatic and I go through the whole thing while I get ready for work in the morning.

    The other thing that I have been doing for the last three weeks is to buy a large checklist or star chart from a teacher supply store and to try to quantify the behaviors I need to exhibit into a doable daily or weekly list and then to rate myself on moving toward or away from my desired outcome. I use those stick-on stars and smiley faces that you can buy in most teacher stores. If I reach the highest level that I believe I could for that day in that area I give myself a gold star. If I do nothing at all toward it, I give myself a black blob. Then I use other colors for various levels. First gold, then silver, then blue, red, green, brown, black. I use the little happy faces in different colors for emotional outcomes. At the top of the list I draw little faces, happy or unhappy to see how I feel that day (the goal being to be as happy and successful as possible). I base all of the areas on the areas of CANI that I developed listening to The Time of My Life CDs. That way I know I am making significant progress in the key areas of my life in small increments.

    This really seems to be working. I’ve notinced that I am beginning to budge in areas in which I have had little or no progress up to now. It also helps me to see patterns in my behavior that I was not aware of up until now.

    I do want to say that, although I have made quite a few changes in my life, there are many obvious changes that need to be made that haven’t happened yet. I am still overweight (although much less so). I still don’t have all of the relationships I desire to have in my life, I still haven’t written the novels I plan to write, I still haven’t become the artist I desire to be. I still. . . but I become boring. the key is that every day I am taking small actions that should lead to a big result over time. I also keep feeding in the CDs, tapes, downloads, books, etc that inspire me.

    Thank you for being such a superlative teacher and untiring ally.

  697. Hello Tony,

    I have sent you one book to read, could you please let me know if it is interested to you?

  698. Jaffer Hamoodi on December 16th, 2008
  699. Tony,
    Thanks for the great videos! The ancients used to say that the people we meet are mirrors to the parts of ourselves that ask for a greater healing. The drunk you met on the street may have been a mirror to the poor part of yourself. Showing you had been asking for quarters in life. The demonstration of life mastery you displayed helped you answer and define your own healing towards money. This is a great example of we all can use moments in our life to see the lessons and learn them from everyday occurrences.

    Thanks again!
    Nicholas

  701. Thank you so much for putting these up for free. I recently purchsed your current product on TV. I have much to my ebarrasment read unlimited power and I have a copy of Awaken the Giant within that was signed by you. I have attended at least 2 of your seminars. Some how I just never made the change.

    I can say thanks to you I did stop smoking many years ago. I now want massive change. My marriage failed twice, with the same women. I am in the Mortgage business and recently have accepted that my current company must change to survive. I opened that company 5 years ago and it’s on life support these days. I have ADD so it’s very important to constantly stimulate myself to stay motivated.

    Here is where you come in. In all the reading the constant message is goals. I have listened all these years but I have never really stopped and said this is what I really want from life. I have healthy fear of not making it so I never really get it down on paper with steps to get there. Now I am that Tony in the VW with not much left to hang on to. I guess better now than never so I am commited.

    I deeply appreciate these sort messages from you. This daily approach really inspires me and keeps me motivated thanks for posting and allowing us to make a connection.

  707. Hi Tony! Thanks for inspiring us and put these videos for free! :-) So… when can you came to Portugal?

  708. Alexandra on December 27th, 2008
  709. Hi Tony! I live in hope you will pick this up. I have worked many times with you through CD’s and think of you as a close friend. However I know I am a visual learner and your on videos are FANTASTIC!! I live in the Uk and am flat broke, having been victimised out of a great, well paid teaching job two years ago. With your help I am slowly turning myself around, and re-building my self-esteem. I set a new RPM plan in motion last week and already I am flagging, but your email inviting me onto your site has really given me new oomph…. reconditioning?? Thanks for being my friend and mentor. With very best wishes from Cornwall UK. Suzi

  711. Hey Tony! I’m sorry I haven’t written back to you since the Date With Destiny event in Orlando that you invited me to. I wanted to say from the bottom of my heart and soul, thank you for the invitation. When I first read your response, I showed it to my wife. We both felt like we had just won the lottery, only better. When you win the lottery, they say congrats and give you the money. Then it’s up to you to figure out what to do with it. Your gift to me was like winning the lottery and then having someone show me EXACTLY what to do with it to achieve MY goals. I will never forget the event and am loving life everyday!

    I am using the tools and my new blueprint to help my family, my friends and neighbors, and my co-workers. I took you up on your offer, and I PROMISE to pay it forward to AT LEAST 5 people, although it will probably much more than that when all is said and done.

    I’m using my experience in finance to start my own hedge fund. My goal is to become a Platinum Partner by the end of this year so I can learn more from you as well as work with you to give back to humanity as a whole. I believe EVERYONE deserves to feel this way and shouldn’t stop until they get there.

    Thank you once again for giving me the gift of a lifetime; the gift of owning myself and my destiny. See you soon!!

    Not down and out anymore,
    Andrew

  713. There’s an old Chinese proverb that goes, “When the student is ready, the Teacher will appear.”

    Well, I must be ready to learn something, because your videos suddenly appeared, and have INSPIRED me to ask better questions.

    I didn’t realize how little I was asking of life. Is it any wonder why I was getting so little back?

    Thanks Mr. R for the lesson. I will apply it and get back to you.

    Cheers. :-)

  715. Tony, I have been reading and following your teaching since 1990. I have taking many challenges on inspite of my fears and percieved insecurities. I have continued to be encouraged by your work and challenged to never give up. I have grown from a quiet voice to a shout. Even as I go through professional challenges now, I am inspired by your tenacity to live a life of “passion”! God bless you and I look forward to the day when I can actually participate in one of your live events. Thank you.
