Tony Robbins TV Takeaway

I stumbled across Oprah’s Next Chapter on OWN tonight. She attended a Tony Robbins seminar at the LA Convention Center and ended up walking on burning hot coals.

Any time he said anything that resonated,  I wrote it down.

You’d probably find different things interesting but here are my notes. They might be of use to you.

Did you know that he was thrown out of his house by his alcoholic mother when he was a teenager, lived in his car and was taken in by friends?

The first note here is tied to that experience – his and ours…

Everything is based around your story – but you have to allow the story to evolve.

 It’s not what you get, it’s who you become.

 See things as they are but not worse than they are.

 The only thing that makes you happy is progress. And you get it two ways …by growing and giving.

 Biography is not your destiny, the decisions you make are

 Emotion is motion

 Problems are the biggest addiction in humanity – they helps us escape our fear

I asked her about her joy and she gave us her wound.

 If you know how to centre yourself, no-one can knock you off balance.

 Winter doesn’t last forever. Look at everything as a season.

 Nothing is permanent.

 If you want to take the island, you’ve got to burn the frickin boats.

There’s some great stuff in there.

I bloody loved it.

Thanks Tony Robbins.

Spinny out.
