Happiness and success in life are not the result of what we have, but rather of how we live. What we do with the things we have makes the biggest difference in the quality of life.
Anthony “Tony” Robbins (born February 29, 1960) is an American self-help author and motivational speaker. He became well known through his infomercials and self-help books, Unlimited Power: The New Science Of Personal Achievement and Awaken The Giant Within . Robbins writes about subjects such as health and energy, overcoming fears, persuasive communication, and enhancing relationships. Robbins began his career learning from many different motivational speakers, and promoted seminars for his personal mentor, Jim Rohn. He is deeply influenced by neuro-linguistic programming technique and a variety of philosophies.
Being the Chairman of seven privately held companies and five holding companies in diverse industries keeps him busy. Many of his companies have become brands that are leaders in their category – from the award winning Namale Resort & Spa in the Fiji Islands, to Twinlab and Metabolife in the sports nutrition field, to the Anthony Robbins brand in personal and professional improvement.
Most of Tony’s core strategies for creating breakthroughs have come from his work with some of the biggest names in the business world: He’s had the privilege of modeling and distilling the strategies of leaders in some of the fastest-growing companies in the world. He’s used these distinctions to help optimize and grow enterprises to new and more profitable levels.
One of the things Tony is most proud of is his humanitarian work through the non-profit Anthony Robbins Foundation. He’s always believed that if we’re blessed enough to have insight and economic opportunities, then we’re also blessed enough to be able to give back. To those who much has been given, much is expected. Tony Robbins is extremely blessed to be able to feed more than two million people in 56 countries every year through his International Basket Brigade.
Robbins’ work has been featured in major media including Time, Newsweek, Fortune, Forbes, Life, GQ, Vanity Fair, Businessweek, Tycoon, and SUCCESS magazines, the CBS Evening News, NBC News, ABC’s Prime Time Live, Fox News, CNN and A&E as well as newspapers, radio programs, and Internet media worldwide. Robbins has been mentioned or featured in 15 major motion pictures. In 2007, he was named to Forbes magazine’s “Celebrity 100” list. Robbins’ programs have reached over 4 million people from 100 countries around the world.
