The Secret, Neville and Anthony Robbins
A lot of people rag Anthony Robbins.
Yes he sells books, DVDs, CDs, he's appeared in movies and they even ripped him on "Family Guy".
But I am convinced the guy knows his stuff.
His technique is a little different from most of " The Secret" clones.
And he was around WAY before The Secret.
Tony preaches positive thought, but also positive action.
You can sit in a room thinking " I'm a millionaire" all you want, but until you take positive action, the universe wont have a way to get that million to you.
David Schirmer (who was in The Secret) is a wealth coach, entrepreneur, private share investor and trader. He has acknowledged Robbins' effects on him.
Yeah I know Schirmer has run into trouble. One thing you have to realize, is that even if a person embraces manifestation and understands it, they are HUMAN and make mistakes. Your job as a human is to see what they did right and wrong. Learn from their mistakes. You can also, according to Neville, try to work in the spiritual realm to help them see their mistakes and work things out.
Anyway, back to Tony....
I think he was really the first positive thinking author I read. Oh I'd read Carlos Castaneda and his stuff really freaked me out, but Robbins taught HOW to apply his teachings to life.
Tony is a big man. Some people don't realize he's 6 feet 7 inches tall, that's one inch shorter than the WWE's Kane. He really has an imposing presence, he gets your attention.
The one thing I read in Tony's books that has really stuck with me is " A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided."
This goes back to what I posted earlier about " Right Now". Do it now, not tomorrow or next week or next month.
Positive decision, positive action.
Lots of his sayings sound like they came from Neville or Trowel or Wattles.
"Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that dis-empowers them or one that can literally save their lives."
"Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life."
"The only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment. "
"We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish. "
Tony's main points, as opposed to some others, seems to be focus, commitment and action.
As always though, you can read what he says with an objective eye. Don't accept his every word as gospel.
Like I have said before, I see all this like Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do.
Try something, if it works, keep it.
If it doesn't, throw it away and replace it with something else.
The thing is keep trying!
