Robbins uses a lot of different theories as to what drives human beings. Drive lies within. It is a mental attitude. Recently I had to sit with my boss and we had to talk to my co-manager. Her performance dropped and we were trying to help her find her job. What we found is that she wanted a new job, but didnt want to leave the friends she had made at the current job. We told her that we were more then willing to help her, but she had to help herself as well. You can find your happiness and your drive, but it is a personal endeavor.

This video was very interesting. It is very enlightening to here how everyone stays motivated to do certain things throughout their life. I always assumed that tony robbins was some cheesy guy that sold stuff, but he has a great outlook on life and is very intelligent.

Decision making is a very important concept in everyone's life. The driving factors behind decision making are emotion, and what drives us to achieve goals. The speaker, Tony Robbins, is very intriguing and lays out information that I actually lacked. Destiny decision making has such a huge impact on people lives. Crucial decisions such as these are backed by our emotion and how we react to them. The example of Lance Armstrong opened my eyes because I never really though about it in that sense.

Tony Robbins is a very good motivational speaker. I found it very easy to stay paying attention to him. I found his speech could be used in organizational behavior in the work place. He mentioned that people need to feel significant. This is important for employees to feel valued in their work place. If not, they will suffer from job dissatisfaction. Workers will not perform well when they do not feel appreciated. It is very important to motivate your employees to boost their morale and performance.

I love this guy. He was in Shallow Hal. Haha. Anyway, his speech reminded me of my presentation on unethical decisions. He said that you give excuses for not completing a goal, such as you didn't have enough time, money, or you had poor management, or simply you didn't know how to do it. Tony said people act from emotions. Couldn't be more true. Women are constantly criticized for being too emotional, but I don't believe that. I think men are just better at hiding it. When he talked about violence, and how violence makes someone feel more significant while adding excitement in their life, it made me realize that that person feels insignificant and is crying out for attention. Now, think of the crime rate difference between men and women. I don't think they're as stable as they like to think they are.
Interesting video. I think Mr. Tony wants us to think more in depth about what we do and the cause of our actions. It's not motivating us to do things, but challenging us to notice how and why we do things. For instance, procrastinating. We know we need to do something and it is not ideal to wait until the last minute, but we still wait until the last minute to get it done. Placing unnecessary stress on ourselves. Why do we do that?
I really enjoyed Tony Robbin's viewpoint on why we do what we do. Personally, it made me think of some things I can do to improve my life. I would love to start giving back more to the community and help other people. I think my personal drive comes from certainty and love. I think it's important to know and accept what makes other people do what they do as well.

Tony Robbins has always been one of my favorite motivational speakers. He has such an incredible way of forming insight and then communicating it to others. His message is so powerful and he has a great personality. I think his message spoke beyond why we do what we do. He sparked a feeling in me to appreciate people more. Sometimes we all forget why we are here. It isn't to make money and go on vacation. We are here to be a community, to help others, and find fulfillment in just that.
I like Tony Robbins' view on what drives you. He believes that understanding one another can help us to improve our views on the world. He talks about human needs and how they drive our ability to contribute. He believes that if we are able to understand each other's needs and ability to contribute, we will be much more able to invest in one another and know what to offer people. This can come into handy when we go into the business world and have to know how to market things to people as well as in our own lives dealing with people we do not know.
First of all, Is this the guy from Shallow Hal? Other then that aspect, he kept my attention by the way he spoke. He seemed extremely enthusiastic and personable. I really like that he said that fulfillment is an art. In order to be happy, we all need to go back to the basics and remember that the emotional needs are the most important, at least in my mind. Happiness seems like an easy thing to acquire, but it is far from it. Yes, its easy to be happy on a good day, but we need to push ourselves to be happy even when we don't want to be. Not necessarily fake it, but find a way to de-clutter and de-stress in order to improve your mood.
The video explains why we do what we do. However I don't think emotions explain why we do what we do. I feel emotion explain how we do the things we do. Emotions are behavioral episode attributed toward an object, person, or event. I also think it is hard to gather emotion toward something your not connected to emotionally.

Having seen Shallow Hal, I'm very familiar with Tony Robbins. But seriously, he is a great speaker for sure. He raises some good points in this video and illustrates the six needs that all human beings have. Many of us need to really look inside and explore our needs and beliefs because I feel that many people really have no idea what drives them or even understand why it is they do what they do.
Robbins is a very interesting guy. Emotions rather than motivation being the most important things in life. I agree. Emotions have a lot to do with what's driving people to do things. I got a lot of good advice and information from him about how to analyze what drives myself to do certain things. I also think its great that he is their from people who are ready to commit suicide and he talks them through it. Awesome guy!
This was an informative, but very long video. The message was really good though. Tony Robbins is a very gifted public speaker. I think that one of the problems with unsuccessful people is that they have never taken the time to find the one thing that drives them. Without drive, there is no growth. As stated in the video, growth is necessary for us to be happy. By finding what drives and motivates employees, managers can encourage growth within the organization. This growth will also lead to happier employees which studies have shown has a positive correlation to financial success.
