Anthony Robbins













Mention the name “Anthony Robbins” to someone and you will get a variety of comments, looks, glares, smiles, praises, misconceptions. Google his name and well, go ahead and do it if you haven’t already. Even on our TradeSmartU forums I remember when Josh first announced the possibility of putting together a package for our TSU family to attend the event in Orlando November 1 – 4 that there were some negative comments about Mr. Robbins and after doing my research I find that there are more people that have good things to say about him than bad. The most common thread seems to be that if you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend a “live” seminar, that one ought to embrace the opportunity with an open heart and mind. That is exactly what my wife and I plan on doing next week.

I have never really been a big fan of events like this but we are stepping out of our comfort zone for a number of reasons. I have quite a little library of motivational CD’s books, cassettes and even VCR tapes from Norman Vincent Peale, Napoleon Hill, Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar, Og Mandino, Dale Carnegie as well as Mr. Robbins, just to name a few. I have never had the desire to walk on fire. I do have a relationship with the one who walked on water and I don’t see why there would be any conflict of interest. I think most of us in the TSU family all have the desire to live a fuller more rewarding life and I’m not talking about money. I’m talking about personal happiness. The happiness that comes with setting goals and achieving them. The happiness that comes with meeting and having a relationship with your “better half”. The happiness that comes with starting a family and nurturing your children into responsible adults. The happiness that comes with having your daughter’s little girl look at you with wide eyed innocence and say ‘I love you grandpa’! The happiness of planting little seeds in the ground and watering them and caring for them then enjoying the fruit of your efforts with your family. The happiness that comes with sharing the abundance of your blessings with those who are not as fortunate. The happiness that comes with being honest and faithful.

What do all these things have to do with going to Orlando next week?

I think that we all walk a fine line, we like our privacy, we like our comforts, we like our nice cars and cool new smart phones, we like having Google puts when it’s getting hammered, we like having Apple calls when it’s trending upward. We like staying in our “comfort zone”. I believe that what I have received from all of the self help books and audios is that sometimes we have to get out of our comfort zones and experience life. That we have to take a chance. We have to make decisions to change the things that need to change and to make true changes that are lasting and consistant. We need to take that first step, to reach out and say something nice to someone we don’t know. We need to be available to help other people less fortunate than us. We need to be available, emotionally & physically to whatever greater good we may be called for. Nothing ventured nothing gained, much will be required of the person to whom much is given. He who wants the rose, must respect the thorns.


We are looking forward to the Unleash the Power Within event because we want to grow, we want to meet and get to know better the TSU family that I am connected with every single day online. We want to set new goals and achieve them. We want to know how to use pleasure and pain instead of just enduring pleasure and pain. We want to experience things we never dreamed of  experiencing, we want to know people like us who we’ve never met before. We want to be successful, healthy, happy, safe and secure. We want to be focused and direct our focus positively to have complete control of our lives. We want to be better human beings, more loving, more caring, more hopeful, more faithful. We want to boldly go where we have never been before and we hope to see you there.



One thought on “Anthony Robbins

  1. Glad to hear you and the TSU family are heading to Orlando for Unleash the Power Within! I think you’re right that we can become complacent and sit in our comfort zones—and that it’s easy to snipe at those who dare to take risks. You see that in investment communities all the time. However, no risk, no reward, right?

    I think you all will really enjoy the experiences and breakthroughs that UPW offers, and I know you -will- walk away and start the journey towards being happier, healthier and more successful.

    Live with passion! 🙂
