About Tony Robbins
Born in the state of California as Anthony J. Mahavoric, his career started by supporting the motivational work of Jim Rohn: a successful author, speaker, and entrepreneur...
Rohn was a firm believer in the value of individuals using the resources available to them to help them find personal happiness and success. He reminded his followers that life wasn't about what you started with; it was about what you did with what was available to you.
Robbins was inspired by this life philosophy, and with missionary zeal, he forged his own path through life coaching and spreading that message to others around the world.
Tony began his coaching career with training at neuro-linguistic programming (NPL)...
Through the co-founder, Tolly Burkan, he learned how to firewalk, and this became one of his techniques for convincing his followers of the powers of mental strength and focus. When he started to spread his teachings through programs, infomercials, books, and TV, his popularity skyrocketed.
Tony Robbins’ First Book: ‘Unlimited Power’
Robbins' first book, 'Unlimited Power,' was released in 1987 and was an instant bestseller in America.
Tony had accomplished that all-enticing 'American dream.' Through his hard work and ingenuity, he had built himself an empire.
His book dealt with matters of health, energy, facing fears, how to communicate persuasively, and how to enhance personal relationships...
While the book's authenticity was questioned, it still brought him the publicity he needed to evolve further in his career and public persona.
Subsequent Books and Successes
In 1991, Robbins released 'Awaken the Giant Within.' He used a technique he coined himself, 'neuro-associative conditioning,' to share his personal development strategies with his readers and followers.
'Awaken the Giant Within' was followed by 'Giant Steps' in 1994 and 'Notes from a Friend' in 1995.
In 1991, Robbins turned his attention to the younger generation and began focusing his energy on empowering youth through his foundation: the 'Anthony Robbins Foundation.'
The organization sponsored food drives and its learning programs reflected Robbins' life philosophies.
The Next Phase
Through the establishment of his name, reputation, and fame, Robbins created a 'Leadership Academy' seminar that reached huge success...
Not only did he become the featured speaker on the Learning Anex's seminar circuit, but he also became the featured speaker at the 2007 conference of Technology, Entertainment, and Design (TED).
By 2012, his speech had become the 6th most popular TED talk.
Robbins also founded the Robbins-Madanes Center for Strategic Intervention, dealing with the organizational psychology of people and families.
His popular seminars included a four-day 'Unleash the Power Within' and 'Mastery University.'
Empowering the Business World
In 2009, Robbins focused on empowering business leaders with his 'Business Mastery' program that promoted how business leaders could find success and growth by implementing his teachings.
The Business Mastery seminar was conducted by Robbins and featured talks from other successful entrepreneurs such as Steve Wynn and Peter Guber.
Tony Robbins made his acting debut in 'The Singularity is Near: A True Story About the Future' in 2010 and made a number of small appearances in other films around that same time.
Robbins' attempt to break into the reality TV business fell short with his 'Breakthrough with Tony Robbins,' also in 2010.
The philosophies and strategies Tony applied to his own life helped him find the success he shared with so many others...
Considered his largest success and accomplishment to date, 'Unleash the Power Within' has become a catch-phrase recognized around the world as the Robbin's mantra extolling the virtues of hard work and reaching success through personal triumph and ingenuity.
