Childhood & Early Life

Tony Robbins was born as Anthony J. Mahavorick in North Hollywood, California. He belonged to Croatian origin and adopted his stepfather’s surname ‘Robbins’ later in life. He was raised in Azusa and went to Glendora High School.

Career

Robbins started his career by promoting Jim Rohn’s motivational seminars. Jim Rohn was a motivational author and speaker as well as an entrepreneur.

Jim Rohn taught him that happiness and success is not a matter of how much a person has got, it depends on what he does with the available resources in his life. Robbins took inspiration from him and began life coaching.

He started teaching at neuro-linguistic programming (NPL) and Ericksonian Hypnosis after getting trained from the co-founder of NPL and in 1983 he learnt to firewalk from Tolly Burkan, father of the global firewalking movement, and started integrating it into his seminars.

Robbins career as a self-help guru started to escalate when he started selling his programs through books and TV infomercials. He popularized himself as a ‘peak performance coach’ and gained a lot of recognition.

His first major book, ‘Unlimited Power’ was published in 1987. It deals with topics of health and energy, overcoming fears, persuasive communication, and enhancing personal relationships. Although the book was a bestseller in America, its originality was disputed.

Robbins next big book ‘Awaken the Giant Within’ came out in 1991. He used his own technique, 'Neuro-Associative Conditioning' in trying to provide his readers personal developmental techniques. It was followed by ‘Giant Steps (1994)’ and ‘Notes from a Friend (1995)’.

In 1991, the ‘Anthony Robbins Foundation’ was launched to empower students and prisoners through food drives and learning programs based on Robbins’ teachings.

Since he was already very famous through his books and TV infomercials, in 1997 he started his ‘Leadership Academy’ seminar. With the success of these seminars, he became the featured speaker on the seminar circuit sponsored by Learning Annex.

With his immaculate reputation as a self-help speaker, he became the featured speaker at the 2007 Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED) conference. His talk was the 6th most popular TED talk by 2012.

Robbins is the founder of ‘Robbins-Madanes Center for Strategic Intervention’, which deals with personal, family and organizational psychology. He also takes seminars, including his four-day ‘Unleash the Power Within ‘(UPW) seminar and Mastery University.

In 2009, Robbins founded ‘Business Mastery program’, focusing on endowing business leaders with techniques to manage and grow their businesses. The seminar is conducted live by himself and features entrepreneur guest speakers, like: Steve Wynn, Peter Guber, etc.

Robbins acted in ‘The Singularity Is Near: A True Story about The Future’ in 2010. Before that he had made cameo appearances in movies like: ‘Shallow Hal’, ‘Reality Bites’, ‘Men In Black’, etc. and in various TV series.

In 2010, ‘Breakthrough with Tony Robbins’, a reality show that featured Robbins helping the show's participants dealing with their issues, was launched by NBC but was cancelled shortly due to low viewership. It was again picked up by OWN Network.

Major Work

Robbins’ four-day seminar ‘Unleash the Power Within’ is considered to be the most prominent work of his career. The seminar is based on the concept of how successful people overcome their fears. ‘Mastery University’ is another successful work of his.

Personal Life & Legacy
