The first time I heard Tony Robbins speak was Monday, April 16th, 2007. I remember it like it was yesterday. “Unleash the power within and create the world of your dreams”. It was a recording of a motivational speech given by Mr. Robbins. He had given this talk 2 years ago. Even two years later, Tony Robbins’ speech was still powerful enough to change my life.
Anthony Robbins, more widely known around the world as Tony, was born on February, 29th, 1960 in North Hollywood, California. He is one of the worlds leading life coaches. In fact when most people hear the term life coaching, they think of Tony Robbins. Tony is also an author and a motivational speaker.
Tony Robbins is the inventor of what he refers to as neuro-associative conditioning, which is based on Neuro-linguistic programming, (NLP). Robbins studied NLP under NLP co-founder John Grinder. It was John who encouraged Tony to look into fire-walking, something that would change his life forever.
Tony Robbins being the amazing human being he is, learned to unleash to power within him. Not only did Tony learn to fire walk, but he began teaching it to others. Fire-walking then became the foundation of Robbins' popular seminars. He has a book Unlimited Power. The book offers a number of examples of how to employ elements of NLP in day to day situations.

His philosophy asserts that fear often holds people back from achieving what they want with their life and moving beyond that is important. There is a newly emerging mastery that he speaks of. Where one can learn not to accept limiting beliefs and move beyond fears. This concept in breakthrough moving in an important step in creating a happy existence. He also says “fear is a more powerful motivator than desire or attraction”. Tony insists that walking safely on burning coals requires no special physical skills. What Robbins does say is that it requires the mental discipline to overcome one's inner doubts. Robbins has one purpose in life, to help people apply that same principle to other aspects of their life.
