I dated a man, (let's call him Buzz) who owed all of his success to Tony Robbins' seminars and tapes. As a former college athlete from a great family with very little emotional baggage, I always believed in positive thinking and psyching yourself up for your life.
So when Buzz went off to another Tony Robbins Seminar without me, I wasn't too concerned. Before he left, he had talked about getting married, and he promised we'd be doing everything together with his daughter from a previous marriage, and merging our lives completely once he got back......
Well, when Buzz came back, he told me he needed space. He didn't call me for over a month, and during that month, he attended yet another 10K Tony Robbins seminar.
Buzz finally called me on Christmas Eve. He told me coldly and bluntly over the phone, "I'm NOT going to be calling you up anymore, I'm going to jump back into the dating game." Ten weeks later, I found out Buzz became engaged to another woman, and married her eight weeks after that.
Buzz claimed to follow all of Tony Robbins advice for living to become a high quality person. If you listen to Tony Robbins tapes, you'll see Buzz obviously didn't get the part about being loving and responsible with break-ups.
Tony Robbins plays on these kinds of people, needy, less intelligent, from dysfuntional families, and those who can't motivate themselves. Check the books and tapes out the library and you may get some good reminders for happy living. But skip the expensive seminars, you don't need to walk on wood chips through a fire.
Simply boil a pot of water and stir with a wooden spoon. (make sure the spoon is wooden and not metal that is the trick concept of the firewalk, that wood is a very poor conductor of heat). Stand over the boiling water, continously stirring with the wooden spoon. Close your eyes, think positive thoughts, and let the steam relax and warm you. I guarantee you'll feel better knowing you saved your hard-earned money, and your hand won't burn.
Tony Robbins hasn't done anything in his life except tell you how to live yours. In the meantime, he divorced his wife, led several get-rich quick schemes, and doesn't even attend many of the expensive seminars he'll sell you.
