Tony Robbins: Leadership in Crisis video

This video, about reaction at a Tony Robbins event about the terrorist attacks on 9/11, I’m sure, has made it around the internet because it’s pretty old. And I’ve actually seen this seminar tape and was really struck by it, but today I came across a clip of it, and I wanted to share it here.

As a person who leads events, I wonder what it would be like to navigate through a landscape like that. Tony did an incredible job at utilizing the situation, something that obviously came from a lot of experience being on stage and being able to think on his feet.

What would you have done in Tony’s situation, here?

As you answer that question, remember that the map is not the territory. The muslim man is not “wrong” for his beliefs and I applaud him for being able to say that freely. Dogmatism just isn’t enough fun. How do we reconcile the opinions?

To me that’s a challenge worth looking into.

Personal Development

Stay Focused. Stay Strong. Stay Passionate.

“Risin’ up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive.

So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive”

– Survivor, “Eye of the Tiger”

We must purposefully create discomfort with our current situation, in order to grow beyond our limits.

I am constantly pushing myself to do things, as Kanye West says, BETTER, FASTER, HARDER, STRONGER.

You must do this as well. For the second you take things for granted is the second that you are slipping, moving back into being a somnambulist to the mass media and popular culture and to your excuses for not achieving the success you deserve.

Here is my question for you:

What will we do, to maintain our level of PASSION, our FOCUS on our goals, and our INSATIABLE DESIRE to achieve them?

It is said that people who are young are the drivers of all that is good.

Felix Dennis, in his book “How to Get Rich,” calls the stamina of the young and their unjaded perspective as their most valuable assets. Experience? Capital? These are largely irrelevant for the young people today. We must have the desire and the will to achieve.

And if we are going to climb to the top of whatever ladder or mountain we choose to set our sights on, our focus and intensity must be at a thousand percent.

Are you with me? What can we do to achieve this?

Hypnosis and NLP Personal Development

Incredible changes!

To those of you that read this with an RSS feed, I know you probably think I’m slacking. The truth is I’ve been doing more than I ever have.

Along with a good friend of mine, we have started a coaching company that uses hypnosis and NLP skills to get people to where they want to be. We guide them through the process every step of the way and ensure that they are getting maximum results.

Every live session with us includes a dual induction, which is where I am in your left ear and my friend is in your right ear, and we get you so far into trance that all you remember is that your life seems to be improving more rapidly than you can imagine.

Right now since we are in “trials,” we are working on getting the testimonials that will promote us forward. Look for them, they will be coming. The clients that we coach are experiencing incredible results and are seeing some very powerful changes manifest in their lives.

If you live in the DC area or can make it there and if you would like to be a part of our program, let me know on the forums, or send me an e-mail at pokerwithoutcardsyt at gmail dotcom.
