Tony Robbins is not about Positive Thinking

There seems to be a misconception about Anthony Robbins from people I talk to who have not used his information or programs. To the misinformed, he is tied to positive thinking.

Positive thinking is convincing yourself that things will work out. Even when tough times come, look for the positive. This train of thought can be a quick fix and “solve” concerns immediately. It does not involve any teaching, really, other than looking on the bright side of things. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact, it’s preferred over the alternative…thinking negatively.

Re-conditioning your mind, on the other hand, retrains your thought processes. You realize that current situations with negative impacts do occur throughout life. Your re-conditioned mind views the situations differently and effectively. You experience less distress. You are in control of situations instead of them controlling you. It is not a quick fix. It takes repetition and training to reach this point. (The training can sometimes be very boring). This is what Anthony Robbins does. He teaches you how to re-condition your mind.

This reminds me of a book titled “Rational Emotive Thinking” by Robert Ellis that I studied while minoring in psychology. That book stands out among others due to its making such sense to me. Reality is how we view and interpret it. In order to be successful, according to this psychological theory, we need to view situations rationally and not emotionally.

What is appealing about Tony Robbins’ information (I purchased the Ultimate Edge and Money Masters series) is the fact it applies psychological theory. Even though I have studied numerous psychological theories throughout my educational career, I was not taught how to actually apply them in real-life. Thanks to Tony Robbins I have learned how to do that. It’s just too cool and very enlightening.

Re-conditioning the mind takes work, repetition and diligence. It is not easy. The training can sometimes be very boring. It can be fun, though. 🙂

Thought I’d throw that out there for anyone else going through the same thing. Find interesting? Kindly share…
