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."

    Buy his program Get The Edge . Its not about pivtiose thinking, its not about thinking your life is going to change, its about a process to recondition your thinking habitually so that it becomes as natural as you yourself thinking that your life is what is right now and believing thats all it will be. Your reality is your life, and if you see it as this as being as good as it can get, then you are exactly right, because its what you believe.

    Robbins is a hack, prattling on and on about 'leadership' – we need collaboration and cooperation – it is the hierarchal leadership notion that has lead to such dis-empowerment as to leave our nation's populace essentially disabled....

    Robbins goes on and on about 'leadership' on every conceivable topic – old hat – it is collaboration and cooperation that is necessary – the leadership he prattles on about is what has lead us, as a nation, down a path of almost complete dis-empowerment – Robbins is a hack ....

    Maybe he should do a reality show instead of making stomp speeches and doing interviews. This way with the cameras running 24/7 we'll be able to see all this behind the scenes passion Mr. Robbins is talking about.

    Interesting. Maybe he should just tape a reality show and forget the stomp speeches. Just run camera 24/7 and we follow him around. That way we might see his passion.

    Tony Robbins is going to 'positive' Mitt Romney into the office. (sic) Funny cultic music in the background; tribes of Utah-ian clansmen and women all following Tony and Mitt. Singing glories to Joseph Smith and how to Be the person you ought to BE! AMERICA, WAKE UP: they're not your men...!

    Anthony who? What has Anthony EVER done to merit the attention the silly media shines upon him? Has he cured cancer? Has he helped poor people get an education or a job? has he disovered a life saving formulae? No. He has written, produced and sold books and tapes. The content of these? "Personal Power". People who are unsettled in themselves and looking to increase their position in their careers buy these items and Anthony gets very rich. But what is the substance of anthony's blatherings? "Just Believe it... and it will become true". Anthony– you should hang your head in shame for taking peoples monies for such drivel.

      uh are you stupid? you obviously have done ZERO research on who anthony robbins is or what he does. his self-help courses are in fact extremely pragmatic and go far beyond the 'believe it, it will happen' banter which YOU are peddling. i first found personal power ii in high school and used it to pass AP chemistry with full college credit. i used his goal-setting techniques and self-motivation practices in college and still use them to make a lot more money than you do. i can almost guarantee that by your rage.

      if you have any problems in your life and are not religious, dont be afraid of the self-help section at b&n. the world is a better place because of people trying to share success in life and help others.
