Tony Robbins : Why we do what we do ( TED)

1 Jul

A friend of mine told me about Anthony Robbins couple of years ago that he is a master coach and must read his books.

I was not into self help and thought it somehow stops our instincts from growing but he told me anything which helps and aids self mastery must be good thing . Since perennially in trouble reconciled its good in moderation 🙂

Tony Robbins is the master of the genre and speaks like some super charged evangelist but he has some truisms to offer and they indeed can be very helpful, one’s found useful are :

– The invisible force of internal drive, activated,is the most important thing in the world. What’s driving you is more important than intellect.

– Decision is the ultimate power. Decisions shape destiny.

In this talk Tony Robbins narrates Rosa Parks defiant decision, a man’s brave refusal to not be cowed down at Tienanmen square and the now discredited Lance Armstrong’s Tour De France feats. Tony Robbins attributes it to ” emotional fitness ” or “psychological fitness.”

He further says ” Your model of the world is what shapes you long term. Your model of the world is the filter. That’s what’s shaping us. That’s what makes people make decisions.”

In a Piers Morgan interview Robbins said ” I think what happens for us is we get ourselves caught up in an environment where we forget what’s right because the environment starts to trigger us. My job is to get them out of the triggers, get them into what’s really real and sometimes it’s a strategy of helping somebody win, sometimes it’s changing their psychological state, sometimes it’s really helping them to break through some limiting belief. “

Tony Robbins states with the right emotion, we can get ourselves to do anything. Hope you like this TED talk 🙂 Thank you!
