anthony robbins says

Dear all. First let me apologise for putting someone else's words in my blog for the 2nd day running. I am MAXED out at work and working at home and sleeping fitful hours in between ... so I am today going to pass on some very wise words from Anthony Robbins of "Awaken the Giant Within" fame ... yes he is a self-help guru and you too can have accesss to his tapes, books, cd-roms, ouijja boards etc (kidding about the last) at a discount price if you're ever up at 4am in the morning eating indomie noodles with an egg dropped in, flicking work-due-yesterday on your pretty streamline ibook with the tv turned down low enough to let the cat sleep and high enough to distract you with audible calls for 'dialing direct and ordering with your credit card and you'll get the free steak-knives folks, its a once-off offer good for only the next 45678890 days' ... 7ft tall Tony Robbins and his big head (it is massive!!) and booming bass voice is a VERY persuasive force at that hour ... he's got me half-convinced I have the ability to MAXIMISE my POTENTIAL and so on and dreary forth.

Today one of the secreataries at work passed around an email with 21 points of advice from the Tony Robbins organization. And I gotta say ... lots of these echo true for me. It seems Mr Robbins just may be onto something after all ... telling us what we already know is Right and maybe just good-for-the-soul or the chi or the vasparna or the gaia or the Christian ethic or the muslim cleric or the bhuddist mantra or the hindu om et cetera et cetera, all along.

Anthony Robbins advice list :

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR. When you say, "I love you," mean it.

FIVE. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don'thave much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone.

HI there, what a great site you have, i have just been reading some of your little notes and you are saying somethings everybody wishes they could say but do not contain the balls to do so. Just a quickie everyday you have the chance to be a better person to maximise your potential because your potential can never be reached. You sound like a very grounded yet very free person, congrats for finding your true self people go their whole lives not knowing who they are and hiding from themselves. Let me say on thing if you ever have the chance to see tony robbins live it will be the best money ever spent. We went and saw him in sydney 2 yrs ago and would spend every cent i had to see him again. I am proud of the WOMAN you are and the woman you are still growing into.
