How motivated do you need to be as a person to be a motivational speaker? Swallow that pill next time you can’t get to sleep. 😉
That question was just one of the copious amounts of goodness flying through my brain when I watched Tony Robbins’ speech (added below) from the TED conference. TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is an invitation-only event where the world’s leading thinkers and doers gather to find their muses, motivation, and inspiration.
Tony Robbins was asked to give a 20min presentation to address this audience. This is the first time I’ve actually seen Tony Robbins in action outside an infomercial. Usually Robbins enters my life by accident at 430am as I’m simultaneously trying to watch Lethal Weapon 4, an episode of Married with Children, and Night Eyes 4. But in those infomercials he’s just yelling a lot, speaking to the camera, and in my opinion, taking precious seconds away from me watching gratuitous violence or Kelly Bundy.
But this time (pre-midnight) I happened to be looking for seminars or conferences I could attend for a topic I’m currently looking to learn about; and in my web travels I came across the TED conference and this amazing Tony Robbins clip. I was personally blown away by his presentation. Not just his energy and relationship with his audience, but by his clear logic, simple reasoning and ability to communicate his vision into your personal environment.
I recommend anyone looking for inspiration or motivation for ANY aspect of your life, check out this clip. The message is easily pliable to fit into any circumstance. Its fantastic. And aside from the content itself, there’s a few minutes when Tony Robbins interacts with Al Gore that is simply brilliant and absolutely HILARIOUS.
Please, take 22min and watch this clip. Then come back here, and let me know what you thought.
