Tony Robbins is the world’s most recognised, successful and influential peak-state life coach. During his life, Robbins has taken an exceptional route from a usual city boy childhood to a phenomenal self-help guru and through his programs has reached over 4 million people around the world. In this post, we’ll see how Tony developed his life success and we’ll learn from through his own words and theories, just some of the ways we could help ourselves do it to. On the 29th February 1960, a leap year, Anthony John Mohorovic was born to his parents John and Nikki Mohorovic in North Hollywood, California. A tight bond was kept between Tony and his mother during his early childhood, while his father was a quiet and content man who refrained from the level of responsibility and influence on Tony which his mother took. However, although still tight after the families move to Azusa and the arrival of a new brother, Marcus and sister, Tara the special bond between the two was soon to be tested on one day in 1967. Robbins has since said that he actually wanted to live with his Mother, but didn’t want to hurt either of their feelings. He tried his best to cope, but missed his brother and sister and began to spend his time reading alone. He joined the new family in their home in Glendora, California where it’s said he stayed on his best behaviour, did as he was told and did well in school to please his mother.
Tony was just thirteen at the time, but he says he was so stunned by the anonymous act of kindness that he made a promise to himself that day that he would one day be successful enough to repeat the help which they had received to others around the world.
This was the first time Tony had felt part of a real family and with it he changed his last name to Robbins to fit. Tony and Jim bonded over their common love for sports and Tony dreamed of becoming a professional baseball player. But by 9th Grade Tony realised he wasn’t going to make it as a baseball star and so aimed instead at what he thought was the next best thing to playing sports – writing about them. Tony didn’t want to cover the local school teams like most young sports writers but instead, he wanted to start right at the very top. One of Tony’s first interviews was with Howard Cosell, a top sports journalist at the time. Tony recorded his interview and it was later mentioned in the Los Angeles Times, a major breakthrough for Tony and something he was thrilled to have got. This lasted for quite some time, but at sixteen Tony grew ten inches in one year and reached six-foot seven-inches in height.
Tony went on to run for Student Body President and although considered as the underdog, he used his newly found appearance and well-practiced speech to his advantage – he was elected president. This went on for months but as it began to affect his school life, he was forced to share his situation with the student councillor for his school. Tony went on to search for a way to support himself and saw an ad in the local news paper for a sales position which promised $500 a week, a huge amount of money for himself as a seventeen year old boy. Just a few months after leaving high school and he’d earned enough to move into his own apartment and support himself. One day while making a sales pitch to a new potential customer, Tony’s direction began to change once more. It was now the late 1970’s and California was being described as the ‘Mecca for the spiritual enlightenment and self-help movement’, something seen to have impacted the lives of several world renowned people’s lives, including Steve Jobs. Tony gained in with this phenomenon when he was invited as a guest to a Jim Rohn speaker session one day.
Rohn has since spoke about that day saying that “Tony was not the ordinary 17 year old, he was remarkable.” He gave him a job and Tony left his old one to begin selling Jim Rohns speaker sessions to businesses all over Los Angeles instead. It’s told that Tony was soon earning $3000 a month, but in June 1978 he returned to Glendora’s High School for his graduation. Tony kept up the enthusiasm for his new career with Jim Rohn and kept a journal, similar to the ones Jim Rohn kept throughout his life, in which Tony wrote down and documented his own personal development findings.
However, it wasn’t all good and with his greatly found success at such a young age, Tony lacked social time, his relationship with Liz Acosta fell apart and he began to realise all of the jealous friends he’d lost. Tony put on 38 pounds in just two and half months, was forced to move to a small flat near Venice Beach and began wasting his days watching soap operas alone. It was now 1982, just a year after he’d hit rock bottom and Tony had made a radical transformation in his life. He was inspired, motivated and determined, and he began working on creating his own speaker sessions and seminars like the ones of his early mentor Jim Rohn.
With some found success, he decided to take his seminars back to California, the home of the self-help and self-development movement where he soon found more success than he could ever have hoped for. As time went on, Tony’s seminars and speeches gained a bigger and bigger audience, became a bigger and bigger success and made Tony a very wealthy man.
He was gaining so much success with his seminars and there promotional infomercials that he’d become household name by the later 1980’s.
As well as keeping his seminars going, Tony began to look to other ways of connecting with his audience including books, tapes and later in the era of the web, internet downloads.
Robbins published his very first book, Unlimited Power, in 1987 discussing a range of self-development topics including health and energy, persuasive communication and overcoming fears.
Four years later and in 1991, Tony released his second and to date, final best-selling book, Awaken the Giant Within.
Tony Robbins has undoubtedly had an extraordinary life and whether you believe in his teachings or not, he’s undoubtedly changed the lives of millions around the world. Robbins still hosts his seminars around the world, including his current seminar Date with Destiny and continues to deliver the timeless lessons of his life to millions around the world through his books, audio products and now the internet too. Tony’s come along way since the promise he made to himself on that Thanks Giving, many years ago and now fulfils that promise he made through the Anthony Robbins Foundation and its yearly ‘Basket Bridges’ campaign. Following his break up with Liz Acosta at around age nineteen, the pair discovered she was pregnant with his child and 9 months later in 1984, they had a son named Jairek Robbins. With such a lengthy and interesting life, full of twists and turns to his success, there are a whole range of lessons we can infer from the life of Tony Robbins. One of the biggest lessons Tony Robbins teaches through his content is focus and the power of focus and energy. Tony’s made a lot of decisions in his life, as we all do, but many of his including his decisions to go it alone and leave home, and to turn his life around after hitting rock bottom are the decisions which ultimately changed the directions of his life and lead him to his destiny of success.
It’s important to recognise the significance your decisions may have on your life, but also to realise that you can’t always predict their effects looking forwards either.
We all have standards and at the simplest level of personal development, it’s the level of standards which we set for our own lives, for our own work, for our own personality and effort that reflects on our success. You’re only on this earth for a limited number of years, yet many people waste many of theirs on minor and extraneous things.
Tony thought big with his seminars, books and actually with his whole aim of accomplishing the self-development area in all.
Andy Warhol is one of the most influential (and controversial) artists of all time; most famous for his pioneering of the Pop Art movement. Warhol now boasts the largest museum dedicated to a single artist in the whole of the United States of America. But what is most interesting to me is not the achievements that this artist reaped as the rewards of his success and talent.
For as long as there has been creative, there have been entrepreneurial people whose sole mission in life is to shake up the world of visual arts.


Andy Warhol was born on the sixth of August 1928 to Julia Zavacka and Andrej Varhola in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
In his third year of school, Andy was diagnosed with Sydenham’s chorea, a disease that attacks the nervous system. When Warhol was thirteen his father died in a tragic accident, his dying wish was for Andy to continue his education to college.
In his spare time, Andy worked alongside his brother with fruit and vegetable selling where he could often be found sketching on the spot for customers. In the 1950’s Andy Warhol began to build his prestige in the art world with ink drawings of shoe advertisements. The drawings, spotted soon after by RCA Records, proved successful in starting the budding artist’s career. Soon after working with RCA, Warhol began exhibiting his pieces in the Hugo, Bodley and Ferus gallery. The exhibit included some of his most famous works including 100 Soup Cans and Marilyn Diptych, it was also at this gallery that he met poet John Giorno who would later feature in Sleep, Warhol’s first movie, created in his studio, The Factory, the following year.
It was around this time that Warhol began experimenting further with iconic American symbols and celebrities.
In response to these attacks, Warhol took part in The American Supermarket, a show held in New York City that invited viewers into a Supermarket environment where everything, from the produce to the posters on the wall, had been created by six leading artists including Warhol himself.
The show drew Warhol lots of artistic support for this work and gave him the opportunity to collaborate with other leading artists and eccentrics whom participated also in his Factory films.
For Warhol the following decade was much quieter, he devoted more time to rounding up buyers of his work, than creating work and began to spread his focus on other issues such as founding Interview magazine, the New York Academy of Art and publishing multiple books on his artistic beliefs.
This entrepreneurial focus brought Warhol much critique from reviewers. His newer art was attacked and labeled “meaningless” and his name lost much of the respect that it had gained in the previous decade.
His body was buried in Pittsburgh, in a coffin made of solid bronze, next to his mother and father.
But despite press criticism (and even death threats regarding his work in the studio) Andy Warhol was never put off trying out new ideas and styles in his work and as a result, Warhol’s art paved the way for the future of modern art.
As stated in the previous point, being able to dream and dare is a valuable skill for artists of all kinds.
When Andy Warhol created “Jewish Geniuses” there was far more critique inflicted on the pieces than there was support. This is one of the best demonstrations of the way in which honesty contributes to creation.
Warhol openly admired Pablo Picasso’s art and fame, and the fellow artist’s use of cubism can often be seen in Warhol’s most successful pieces. Despite a career that had declined in recent years, he is still regarded as one of the most major artists of the century and became the pioneer for computer-generated art using Amiga computers, which were invented just two years before his tragic death. He’s released several self-help books, audiotapes and hosted many inspirational peak-state coaching seminars around the world. Anthony Robbins not only talks, teaches and inspires success, but also has developed his own success at phenomenal rate to. His mother took a leading role in his life from the start as she talked to him, told him who she was, where she’d come from and took almost full responsibility for his well being. His family remember the way he was always questioning what was around him and how his mother became his first teacher, answering all of his questions of the world by looking them up in the family encyclopaedia.
Not only was Tony broke at the thought of the divorce but he was then asked to choose between his parents.
His mother and siblings moved out soon after and he was left to be brought up by his father. They we’re looking towards to a poor holiday, however a package of food and gifts was left on their door just a few days before and the family got the Thanks Giving they wanted. Tony has since spoke about Jim Robbins, stating he was major influence during his childhood, even more so than his father. Tony’s uncle later told A&E Biography that even though he lost most of his games, he still gained huge amounts of physical confidence from his step father Jim. He approached Willis Osborne, a teacher and yearbook advisor at his school and told him about a ‘special project’ he’d like to work on in sports writing and asked the teacher if he could help, to which Willis replied ‘sure’. So he scoured the local papers and found out where various sports celebrities of the time where appearing, then he got his good looking mom to help in getting them to co-operate. They talked about various things during the interview but most notably about the power and value of good communication – looking back, a well placed suggestion of what was to come for Tony Robbins.
Following his mention in the paper, the local Glendora Press learned of Tony and hired him to write for their sports page and a few months later a TV station also offered Tony a reporting job. She had begun to lose control over him and thought that his new found fame was too much for her son. It was a drastic change for Tony and he’s since said that “he liked the result, because people looked at me in a different way after that.” He didn’t realise it then but this small change, would go on to change the direction of his life forever. He began to work on projects and activities for the body, but his newly found success once again lead to issues between himself and his mother at home. Tony’s sister Tara said a few years later that “Tony did just need to leave the house, it was you know, spread your wings, he was ready to go, he was motivated.” and on Christmas Eve 1977, he did just that. He moved in with a friend, called his uncle who ran a cleaning business and began working nights after school cleaning.
The councillor suggested he left school to figure out how to support himself and while he didn’t want to, feeling that he was again being forced out of something he loved, it’s exactly what he did. He knew he could be persuasive, landed the job and moved on as a sales man, selling music club subscriptions door-to-door.
Around this time, he met Liz Acosta when she came to work at the music company; they hit it off straight away and began dating.
The man was so impressed with Tony’s sales skills, he told Robbins, “you have so much talent, if you took this skill you could convince anyone, anything, you could change people’s lives,” planting a seed in Tony’s head, which would begin to redirect him for decades to come. Rohn’s seminars we’re attracting thousands at the time and Tony was so inspired by Rohn, he approached him after the seminar and asked him for a job.
He was excited and proud of his accomplishments in school, but also nervous that his mother – who he had not seen since he left home 6 months earlier – was going to present. He was offered a promotion to run his own office for Rohn in 1979, he took the offer and began working harder than ever, making $10’000 a month at just age nineteen. An upset and lonely Tony fell into a depression, began to eat exponentially and started to spoil his own business.
He began to run the seminars and gained his own gimmick – fire walking – to differentiate his from the rest.
Making the most of this fame, Tony knew he had to begin building on his range of products and he did.
It included further details of his personal development techniques and strategies, which he calls ‘Neuro-Associative Conditioning’. Coming from a life no different to most young children, through his devotion, determination and many of his now life teachings, Tony has grown to become a man of success much greater than he could have ever hoped. The foundation also works on other projects including its aim to empower students and prisoners through learning programs based on Tony’s teachings.
At a seminar of his sometime later, Tony met Becky Jenkins, a lady with 3 children, who he went on to marry.


However, Tony has built the huge list of his own teachings based on his life experiences and so in this lessons section, instead of recovering our own lessons from his life, I’ll be discussing just a few of the lessons which he often speaks about gaining from it himself instead. I’ve done this because of my strong belief that focus is the key to the successful completion of anything. He believes focus is one of the most powerful forces we have as human beings, but also that as with all powerful forces, if it isn’t used correctly, it shouldn’t be used at all.
He believes that decision if the initial and one of the most important factors of a person’s route to success, as a single decision can change a persons destiny forever. To up your game, to up your lives and your level of success, you must up your standards for yourself.
Don’t waste your time on the little things, but rather dedicate your life to the mastery of bigger things which actually have a significant impact on what really matters to you instead. Before Warhol’s time, the visual arts movement was restricted in the sense that it ignored modern and consumerism elements. As well as having painted some of the most expensive and famous pieces of art in all time, he had published multiple books including “Popism: The Warhol Sixties” and became a key figure for gay liberation before it’s height of movement.
What’s interesting to me is how a single commercial illustrator became the leading figure for a revolution. But very few people have a mind special enough to revolutionize or create an artistic movement. Whilst his brothers and classmates would play outside together, Warhol would stay inside and watch his Mother painting family furniture, selling small figures she had created by hand and showing him how to trace and print images.
This disease causes involuntary movements and was caused by the after effects of scarlet fever. He became a lonely character, outcast by his peers, but kept close bonds with his mother throughout his adolescent years. In 1945, three years after his death, Andy was accepted in Carnegie Institute of Technology to study commercial art; the first of his family to go beyond high school education. His aspiration was to become a teacher through but these plans were put to one side when Andy moved to New York City to begin a career in magazine advertising and illustration. These drawings were drawn in a casual, loose blotted-ink style and received an abundance of press admiration for their unique approach for the time. He was hired by the company, along with another budding young artist, to design promotional materials and album covers to aid the expansion of record industry and the invention of vinyl records.
This was a rapid and significant achievement for Warhol but it wasn’t until the early 1960’s that he truly began to expand his artistic work; putting up his first ever solo pop art exhibition in New York’s Stable Gallery in 1962. The studio, I would argue, was key to Warhol’s work because it united celebrities, drag queens and street people from across the world and gave Warhol the opportunity to bring focus to his artistic work. This experimentation put Warhol right at the centre of the shift in culture that had been occurring in the art world.
However, not all people were as pleased about Warhol’s developments and in 1968, feminist Valerie Solansas shot down Warhol in his studio along with an art critic who was reviewing his work at the time. In 1987 Warhol died in his sleep, aged just 58, from a sudden cardiac arrest. It is believed that the cardiac arrest came as the result of a gallbladder problem that Warhol delayed having treatment for out of fear for hospital life and all that surrounded it.
As a result of this exploration, Warhol achieved many followers throughout Andy Warhol’s career but also much critique from art reviewers who regarded his work as “capitulation to consumerism”. You will never be able to please everyone, but you’ll please far more people if your work is honest.
But if the majorities aren’t happy with the work you’re doing, then it’s important to take a look at the actions you take and ensure they are contributing to your final vision. Warhol had never taken an interest in Judaism and was not a Jew himself and as a result critics labeled the work as “meaningless”. What is most often pitched to the self-developer is the need to look at our surroundings for inspiration.
Robbins was a former minor league baseball player but was at the time, a struggling sale man instead. She took him out of everything and Tony was forced to give up his dreams and become the man of the house – he would do anything to please his mother.
He’d hit rock bottom and while starring at waves as they rolled in on to the seashore ahead of him, he thought deeply about everything he had done, gained and lost over the last few years.
It was now that Tony came to realise how he could package his story, his lessons and his inspirational speaking into a product which he could sell.
However, the pair divorced in June 2001 and Tony went on to marry Bonnie Humphrey (now known as Sage Robbins) later that year.
Be it school work, a project, a blog post, a sale, it’s only through hard focus on your vision for that task that I believe you can ever succeed in completing the task successfully. Learn this from the life of Anthony Robbins and don’t let yourself down by chasing the minor and almost worthless things in life – but alternatively aim high and Major in Major things instead! How a boy, who once was bed-ridden as a child and an outcast from his classmates, climbed the chain and used his talents in sculpture, film, photography, print making, painting to transform the world of art. But they had two other sons after their first, John and Paul, of who were significantly older than their younger brother Andy. This illness had a significant effect on Warhol and caused the young boy to become a hypochondriac and develop severe fears of hospitals, nurses and doctors. This time was important for the young artist’s developments as it was these years that he grew strong introspection skills and collected prestigious pictures of movie stars. He almost failed his first year, but a professor who had a soft spot for the young boy allowed him to enroll in a summer class.
This was an opportunity that allowed Warhol to truly begin experimenting with his approach to art and he became an early adopter of the silkscreen printmaking process and exhibition of commercial objects.
As well as being openly complimentary of other Pop Artists and was open in his indignation towards artistic attacks on consumerism art. On the day of the attack she asked for her original script back, and was told that it had been temporarily misplaced. By his side lay a copy of Interview magazine and a bottle of Estee Lauder, placed by lifelong friend Paige Powell.
But they’re also the potential seeds for a success that is unique to you and what you have to say.
This was later supported by Warhol’s diary entry, which described the series as “going to sell” and nothing more. But at the same time, it’s important that we have a deeper mission behind our works before we sell them. But one of the best ways to create truly unique and successful products is to take note and get inspired from other people’s work. As a result of her indignation, Warhol was severely wounded and had to wear a surgical corset for the rest of his life. What makes Warhol particularly special is the entrepreneurial lessons to be learnt from his rise and fall in the art world. So always focus on the support, rather than the lack of support in the next steps of your journey and dare to make the leaps that hold the skilled man back from becoming a great man.
