welcome to the Tony Robbins podcast

we've all had some area in our life that

we said we're going to change whether

it's our relationship our business

finances career or health we all have

something that we want to take to the

next level but for one reason or another

we just never made it happen

maybe we pulled back too soon or didn't

follow through maybe we made an excuse

or even sabotage it before we had a

chance to start whatever the reason we

just couldn't break through in this

episode Tony talks about the three

components to creating a breakthrough

strategy story and state the way you

approach a goal your beliefs about your

life and your mental game from the

foundation for any success or failure

but by taking control of these forces

you can take massive action and you can

create the quality of life that you've

always wanted about 35 years ago I got

obsessed with a simple question what

makes the difference in the quality of

people's life what makes some people

leaders and other people followers which

makes most people talk about a dream and

never follow through and other people

just a small percentage kick ass take

names

you can throw any obstacle and they find

a way to break through what's the

difference and when I first grew up I

grew up very poor financially I grew up

in a very tough environment when I met

my fourth father I said mom I'm confused

I was confused because I always loved

people love people just my nature but

when I was in high school I was not the

most popular kid in school in fact the

most popular in school treated me like

how he was so vicious and mean I thought

what what makes that guy popular so it

made me obsessed to want to know why

people's wives turned out so differently

and my first answer growing up poor with

no great role models was well some

people are just lucky they grew up in a

family where everybody loves each other

and they stay together you know some

people are lucky they were up in a

family and everybody's educated so they

work hard to educate their kids or some

people are lucky they grow up in a

family with lots of money so they have

resources to travel and learn and expand

and do whatever they want and it's much

I wanted to believe that story that some

people are just lucky that they had a

better family when you pay attention you

even slightly honest with yourself that

story doesn't hold out does it because

when you look around what happens to

people that we're truly given everything

and they don't have to work for it what

happens to the person who's born and

they got total love and support from

their family they have total financial

abundance enough to worry about it

whatsoever they got all the great

education what happens the majority of

those not all but the majority of those

people don't build any muscle they're

not hungry because everything was given

to them so they don't have any hunger

that could give them Drive which if you

asked me Tony what's the single most

important key to success above anything

else it's not talent it's not skill its

hunger if you get enough hunger going in

you for an answer you'll find the answer

if you get a hunger enough inside of you

that says I gotta take things to a next

level I got achieve I gotta make a

difference I got expand you will find

the answer people's intelligence will

expand if they got enough hunger but if

you got everything and you're not hungry

you're not gonna have much look at the

pathetic people you read about in the

rag newspapers who are given everything

and as a result what do you find out the

majority of people that are given

everything you find them living in rehab

they forget everything else that are

going in out of rehab for drugs or

alcohol or something else and then you

find these people that wife seems to

have stepped on you're the kind of

people I'm talking about life has kicked

them in the face they've experienced

tremendous injustice

nothing has been fair to them they've

been abused mentally emotionally

sexually spiritually whatever and very

often those are the very people that

most of us are inspired by who achieve

levels that most people never dream

about and who touch society for example

what would you guess would be the future

for a child if I described their

background because most people think

biography is destiny what you've been

through determines who you are and most

of us if we're not succeeding can tell

everybody the stories of why we're in

that place but it's much more fun to

tell people where you are today in spite

of what happened in your life that's a

much more interesting story isn't it but

if you look around what if a personal

story is this true story person's born

and their father's not there as a baby

their father left before they got there

their mother is going to

raise them and their mothers 13 a child

being raised by a child if that's all I

told you what would you predict the

future this child would be red real

positive uplifting expansive powerful

influential or concerning concerning

what if I said this 13 year old mother

didn't know what to do with his baby he

was overwhelmed so she gave the baby

most of the time to her grandma who had

lots to deal with and what if I told you

with grandma not noticing before this

child was 13 she was sexually abused

more than three times by different

people in family and friends now a

little baby being abused the child being

abused what's the future then look too

bright does it what have I told you at

13 when the baby turned 13 this baby

became exactly like her mother and

became pregnant as well followed exactly

in her mother's footsteps what if I told

you at 13 when the baby arrived the baby

was stillborn the baby died at birth

what would that do to an adult mom

having a baby much less a 13 year old

child what if I told you the kid went a

little crazy with her behavior got so

outrageous and out of control they put

her in an institution but fortunately

the institution didn't have enough beds

so they couldn't keep her there more

than a few days and they finally

released her to a man who claimed to be

her father cause she's not mad by now

I'm sure you figured out whose story

this is who is it

this is Oprah Winfrey story Oprah

Winfrey went through all that we just

said plus she was african-american at a

time in the US when the President had

States was not African American and when

many people in the u.s. did not judge

people by their character they judge

them by their color based on nothing

whatsoever

this woman's becoming the most

influential people in the world females

on the planet and that's her story so

the reason is whatever story you're

being told about the economy whatever

story you're being told around you you

have to be so aware not to buy into a

limiting story either someone else

telling you that are you telling

yourself that and I'll tell you

something it's gotten worse as the years

gone by and I think the US has been the

leader in an amount attacking my country

it's just it's interesting what's

happened in my country the last two

decades some of you may be old enough to

remember

20 years ago when things started to

change because America likes to export

their stories so I think many of you if

you're around them can remember there

was a story of two young men who killed

their parents in Los Angeles

their names were the Menendez brothers

does anybody here remember that story

the Menendez brothers keep your hands up

so I can see a sense yeah quite a few of

you can remember the story if you didn't

know the story it's about these two

young men they kill their parents and

mother and father at point-blank range

with a shotgun murder them in cold blood

but when they went to a jury trial the

jury couldn't decide they admitted they

did it they admitted it but they said by

our parents were abusive and so the jury

literally was deadlocked it took two

jury trials to convict them now all

because they were abused so many people

abused they don't kill the parents with

shotguns right see if you and I are

gonna be successful we're never gonna

get it by blaming somebody else

including God

people say I'm pork economy poor I'm fat

cos guy got me fat no you're poor in

fact cuz you sit on the couch and watch

TV and eat Cheetos all day it's not

God's fault so what I'm suggesting to

you and I have to come up with a better

story a story that can make things works

and I want you to tell me the truth on

something here tell me right now who

here in this room has ever failed to

accomplish something that really

mattered to you we all know we failed at

some point the first time I ever asked

this question on stage it was

spontaneous I was at this group called

tad Technology Entertainment and design

and I asked everybody in the audience

because they're all multi-billionaires

the guys that started Yahoo the guys

that started Google this really unique

group of people and then this darkness

and they weren't responding slice let me

ask you a question how many of you have

ever failed no one raised their hand I

said thank you for your full

participation how many you ever failed

they all raised their hand I said great

when you failed in the past why did you

fail and this is where you hear people's

story remember why I'm telling you this

because I want to tell you right now you

might write down something change your

story change your life we all have a

story about why we are where we are if

you're not where you want to be in your

life in some area like maybe your body's

great but your finances aren't or your
