Tony Robbins, whose real name is Anthony Jay Robbins. He is an American author, motivational speaker, and philanthropist.
Tony Robbins was born on February 29, 1960. He was the elder child of his parents' two children. His parents divorced when he was 7 years old.
His mother tried to remarry several times but failed to keep them long. He also married Jim Robbins, a former semi-pro baseball player. Jim legally adopted Tony when he was 12 years old.
Her mother was abusive to him. He got frustrated with his family life, and at the age of 17, he decided to leave his home and never return.
He did not go to college after separating from his family. He found it difficult to get a good job without a degree, so he began working as a janitor.
Once, a site landlord told Tony, "His life changed after going to Jim Rohn seminars."
The landlord's words resonated with Tony, and he began promoting seminars for motivational speaker and author Jim Rohn.
Jim Rohn taught him how to be successful in life despite having few resources and even with our limited resources, how we can live our life happily.
Inspired by Jim Rohn, In 1980, Tony started doing his own seminars. Whatever he had learned from Jim Rohn, he now started using it in his programs.
In 1986, he launched his first book, Awaken the Giant Within. Which was a big hit. After that, he wrote many books, which are related to personal, financial, and business growth.
Now Tony Robbins is most famous for his life-changing seminars like "Date with Destiny" and "Unleash the Power Within." He worked with the most successful people, like:
Bil Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Princess Diana, Serena Williams, and many more. His net worth is roughly $600 million.
The lesson of this story- Your success depends more on your hard work than your education. Tony Robbins never went to college,
despite that he is a successful person today. Don't just be a bookworm; also start working hard and learn new things.
