I absolutely LOVED this video, lengthy yes, but well worth watching. I mean there was so much in here that could be talked about I don't really know where to start. I guess I will just talk about how encouraging this man is to me. I mean his efforts alone inspire me to be successful just so I can be a blessing to others. I loved that he truly cares about the needs of people around him.

I have never heard of Tony Robbins, but I found this video interesting. It was sort of long but touched on important concepts. One being growth. I connected to this concept because I am definitely a self-motivator who is constantly pushing myself to grow more and to push myself. But I often get the question on why am I the way I am. And for years I have struggled with the answer. In the video, Tony Robbins talks about how people's growth is driven by their emotions and after watching the video, I think that makes perfect sense. Robbins mentions that people are driven by anger, fear, sadness, etc. I am driven by disappointment. I do not want to disappoint myself or my family, or any one who depends on me. Overall, I enjoyed the information in this video and Robbins' ideas about what drive people to growth.
What is your motivation? I know what my motivation is. I know why I do what I do. My life experiences and the things I have seen and witnessed firsthand has made me the person I am today. Those things motivate me to be better. I want to be better and do better. That is why I do what I do. That is what motivates me.
I found this video very interesting I think that Tony Robbins is a great speaker and very influential. In this video he talks about why people do what they do and I think that his reasons can apply to everyone. He breaks down what people need into 6 things and says that without these things people will never be satisfied in life and it's because of these things that people make the decisions they do. One of the six things he mentions is certainty. People need certainty in their lives, they need to know will happen and why but at the same time we also need uncertainty because if we always knew what was going to happen then we would be bored with our lives. I thought that this his whole presentation really could relate to anyone. If you don't understand how people operate then you can't possibly understand why people make the decisions they do which ultimately shapes the world we live in.
My favorite thing Tony says is, "the defining factor is not resources, its resourcefulness." Its so true! Its not about what you can get, its all about what you can do with what you already have! I think this concept applies not only in business but in life as well. People are too busy making excuses about what they don't have or cant have to make the best of what they already have. Why people do what they do is important in figuring out what drives our success and what challenges us to be the best we can be.

Emotion is a major factor in everyone life. It can change our perspective on situations and make us feel and do different things. Understanding individuals emotions helps managers have a better work environment.
I agree with Tony Robbins. He states several reasons of why we are the way we are. He has some great points throughout the video. The point about emotion and how that can cultivate a state of motivation that we have not experienced up until that point was very interesting.
The video describe internal motivation very well. Human needs and personal drive is something everyone has. It is a manager or leaders job to figured that out those internal needs in order to initiate the followers ability. In most situations I've found human needs and internal drive to be relevant. He tell how human emotions make us put forth our best effort. I try to incorporate emotions into my work so that I will have more stake into my work and put forth my best efforts.

I thought that the speech was very interesting. He talks about why people are the way that they are, and why they do what they do. He talks about human needs and emotion. He knows how to talk to people, and get them to the place they want or need to be. Managers need to be able to deal with their emotions as well as others. They should be able to grow and become better people when things go well as well as when they do not.
What I took away from this video most is the idea of resourcefulness over resources. Yes it is always great to have the resources to achieve as task, but what happens when you don't have those resources or access to them? Some individuals will figure that's a sign to give up, then you have those who will make it happen who will keep try and do whatever it takes to accomplish their task or goal. This is when the drive and passion you have for your idea, company, or product truly shows.

Mr. Robinson started off saying he was not here to motivate, but that is exactly what he did for me. He motivated me to look at myself and analyze these factors inside of me so that I have a better understanding of how I work. If I know how I work, when I am faced with a situation I can look at it in a different way and without biased to change myself to be a better person. Same concept as a manager or leader at work, you have to have emotional intelligence to identify what makes your employees tick individually and then use your knowledge to change the emotional atmosphere in a given situation if need be to achieve an outcome of accomplishment in some kind of way. Such as bringing a family together with an ostracized family member or bring two highly negatively associated companies peacefully together for a merger, etc.

I feel like Tony Robbins is very good speaker. He motivates people and gives very good points throughout the video. He made really great points about emotions and being able to get things done. When people have an emotional drive, you are able to achieve more things. Anything is attainable, you just have to have the drive to achieve it!

I found Robbins to be an amazing speaker and I really enjoyed this video. I agree with how he said that some of the people who go through the most physical or emotional pain are the ones who contribute the most to society. I have personally seen instances all around me of how people when they fail blame everything except themselves. Some people are so afraid of failure that they cannot accept the fact that failure is their fault, so they can never learn from it and overcome it. I also loved his statement that with strong enough emotion we can overcome anything and do whatever we want to.

“Once an issue is identified, the most effective CEOs then work quickly to squash the potential problem before it has time to grow into a crisis.” This sounds specifically like a management issue. One where your employees are hooked up through the grapevine and move information faster than you do. Sometimes an issue that does not seem real or practical can become a problem once it gains traction. If people perceive it to be real and give it the power to affect them then it will.
I really liked this video. I completely agree with what he is saying. I would definitely say that emotions run many of our decisions, especially when the decision directly affects us. We should always look at our decisions and question how they will affect us; think of the future, long-term effects. I really like how he was able to point out the difference between surprises and problems. I believe we all are able to justify our actions, regardless of how others feel about it. This was a really good video.
