Successful People – Tony Robbins

   Tony Robbins is an American author, entrepreneur and one of the most known motivational speakers out there (you can read more about this guy here). His self-help books helped lots of people to go through tough moments. I love about him the fact that he is proud of the life he had so far and he embraced each obstacle he encountered. That’s a winning mindset right there!

   The fact that he talks about how we need to change our mindset and our surroundings to move forward in life is what we need to hear in our sh*tty days. He often talks about gratitude, which it can be the main source for us to improve our moods, but it can also be a source we can use to pick ourselves up when life hits us with goats shot from a bazooka.

   You can find below a video made by Evan Carmichael with his view about Top 10 Rules for Success that Tony Robbins applies in his life.

   I cannot choose between rule #3 (decide to be happy) and rule #9 (use fear) as my favorite because I find both to be incredibly powerful. It seems that we’re one decision away to be happy and one fear away to get stronger. What is your favorite rule and why?

  1. Hey!

    Tony really is a great guy and certainly knows a lot about his field!

    I’ve read two of his books (Unlimited Power & Awaken the Giant within). They were both very insightful, but honestly have to say that many of the techniques he mentions and talks about (not only in his books) are much easier said than done (e.g. changing your emotions etc.).

    I really like and follow his coaching on relationship advice he gives. I think he’s great in that!

    After all, I would probably choose to raise your standards as my favorite rule! To me, it is the answer to so many problems simply said… Want to achieve more in your career? Raise your standards. Want a clean and hygienic home? Raise your standards. Want to go to an excellent place to study or work? Raise your standards.

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. The only rule here is I follow my heart!… 🙂

    “I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.”

  3. My favourite one is “Live in a state of gratitude”. I have been doing that since before it was a thing. I have/am/will always say thank you prayers much more than the ‘I want and gimme gimme’ prayers. I feel like God/the Universe appreciates that we ask them for help just like a parent would like for their children to. However, I feel that God/the Universe/parents would really like to be appreciated for all that they do. That’s why I say thank you prayers all day long every day even for the smallest things. When you are grateful for what you have, you receive more of it.

      1. Well, I’ve been practicing what I mentioned above since I was 17. That’s when I stopped being afraid of doing things I wanted to do. It didn’t always turn out well; but, I kept it up anyway. A couple of years ago, I added saying thank for for things big and small out loud the minute I got out of bed and kept saying thank you for everything that came to my mind until my bed was made. It really made a big difference in my outlook on life cuz I was starting my day in a positive way. I lost practically all fear and things came easier to me. Also, I started taking more responsibility for the bad things that happened/were happening/are going to happen to me. Not all, but more. Obviously, I’m still a work in progress. I think I will never be done working toward becoming the best version of myself until I die.

      2. I totally agree with you and I love this part -> ” I will never be done working toward becoming the best version of myself until I die.”

  4. I have to say I actually laughed when I heard the one about fear. I’ve had this happen in the past to. I used watch shows on how to clean out a messy house and the techniques they were teaching the homeowners were things I had always done. No one taught me to do it it was simply my way. So I laughed at the fear one because I have thought the exact same way. I have been afraid to do something but I would remind myself what I would lose out on if I didn’t try. I have also been one to say that on my death bed I don’t want to have any regrets. I would rather try and fail than to go to my grave wishing I had done something.

    Tony Robbins is great but I absolutely adore Les Brown. He has a story about two boys on a patch of ice that brought me to tears and just his own story is amazing. If you don’t know him I highly recommend him.

    1. I do know Les Brown and I find him to be awesome as well! I love this part “I would rather try and fail than to go to my grave wishing I had done something.” That’s exactly what I believe too.

    1. It depends from one person to another. For me, a successful person is one that puts tons of effort to help other people by trying to solve some problems people have.
