Personal Development Leader Tony Robbins Discusses the Key to Living In a Beautiful State In His Intimate Interview With SUCCESS for the January Issue

DALLASTony Robbins doesn’t like being called a motivational speaker. In fact, he hates it. He says that by the time someone comes to him for help, either through one of his seminars or books, the person is already craving change. He believes the key to successful transformation is energizing people so they are ready to make improvements. “If your energy is low, nothing’s gonna happen,” he says. “So I create an environment that’s like a rock concert.”

His latest goal is to encourage people to challenge their thinking so they can live in a beautiful state, something he defines as a state full of happiness, joy, courage, decisiveness or anything that isn’t suffering.

In the cover story of SUCCESS Magazine’s January issue, Editor at Large Michael Mooney visited Tony Robbins at his Palm Beach, Florida, home to talk about living in a beautiful state, motivating others, his relationship with fear, dealing with skeptics and more. 

“I don’t teach people just to solve their problems. I help them solve what caused the problem in the first place.”
