Tony Robbins on Success Through Giving

Tony Robbins had a difficult childhood, void of a consistent father figure and steady financial support. Now the entrepreneur, best-selling author, philanthropist and life strategist says that experience gave him the drive to ensure other people don’t feel the same pain and suffering. He’s on a mission to fulfill his legacy while he’s still alive—to touch the lives of as many people as he can with his books, coaching sessions and personal development seminars. SUCCESS Editor-in-Chief Josh Ellis sits down with Robbins to discuss peace of mind, finding success through giving and the importance of mastering your emotions.

This interview appears on the SUCCESS Talks Collection, available in the January 2017 edition of SUCCESS magazine.


  • What are you focusing on in life? Learn why your priorities matter.
  • Listen to hear how Robbin’s upbringing shaped him to want to end others’ suffering.
  • Your inner world—what you believe about yourself—controls how you interact with your outer world. Control your inner world and take control of your life.
  • Plus, learn how giving to others can bring joy to your life.

Favorite quote from this episode:

“We all have a reason why our life is not where we want it to be.  And the only reason is you… Until you and I can take 100% responsibility for our experience of life- we can’t control life and we can’t control other people, but we can control what we think and what we feel and what we do.”

—Tony Robbins
