Tony Robbins' advice for Mitt Romney

Tony Robbins, the man whose book Personal Power has sold millions of copies and over 40 million audiotapes and downloads, has some unsolicited advice for Mitt Romney, who Robbins says is "making these silly mistakes."

Robbins, who describes himself as an independent who voted for Barack Obama in 2008, said in many ways, Romney gets in his own way. "If you saw this guy off camera, when he's not so busy trying to be perfect, trying not to make a mistake, he's a very passionate man." Robbins says to get past the constant fear of making a mistake, Romney needs to get back to basics–the very qualities that have made him successful in life. "There's a part of him that doesn't give a damn what people think–when he knows it's right."
