If you’re ready to start or grow your own business, you need wise voices in your head giving you the advice and encouragement to keep going and achieve your dreams. For many, Tony Robbins is that voice.
The first step in being financially successful is knowing you can be, he says.
“You need to understand the game is still winnable,” Robbins tells Inc. You don’t have to be Paul Tudor Jones to make money, just start putting your money to work now.
“Set up a financial business on the side with no employees, it’ll be an extraordinary nest egg that could bring you income for life,” he says. Robbins says you should not wait until you have a pile of cash, get started with what you have.
Robbins wants you to dream big, get inspired, and live a life of wild success, but in order to get there, you have to accomplish smaller things and build up. Long-term, sustainably wealthy entrepreneurs didn’t wake up in a room of cash, they set out to add value and help people.
Robbins’s mentor, the entrepreneur and motivational speaker Jim Rohn, gave him two lessons on how to tap your strongest talents and resources to be successful:
“Find your passion and find a way to use it to do more for others than anyone else does and add value. And proximity is power. If you want to get the job done, you have to get in the environment of the best of the best,” Robbins recalls Rohn saying.

Robbins’ advice extends far beyond business and entrepreneurship. What matters is your mindset, how you see yourself and how you see your life. He encourages us to rewire our brains for hope and forward thinking. This could be your first step to the business and life that you’ve always wanted!
Today thousands of people flock to Tony Robbins’ seminars, hours-long “immersion experiences” aimed at conquering the fear and inner doubt that often hold people back from overcoming obstacles and achieving greatness.
In short, Robbins has built an empire—and a larger-than-life persona—on his breakthrough coaching and has developed a whole vocabulary in the motivational world related to achieving “peak performance.” For example, Robbins doesn’t put a lot of stock in feel-good mantras alone. He thinks the key is to change your biochemistry—and then get to work.
He says the No. 1 thing people need is a “compelling future, something to look forward to that excites you,” he says. “Something that will get you up early and keep you up late. It’s hard to do when you are in a low state, so I put people in an environment eight, 10, 12 hours a day where you start doing things you don’t think you can do—jumping out of an airplane, crossing some fire. And all the while you are [experiencing] insights. It doesn’t take 10 years to have a breakthrough—it’s a moment; it’s a moment when your brain says, This is it!; I quit!; Let’s make this happen!; Let’s move!”
To effect change, Robbins suggests people alter their “states” of consciousness by revving up their energy and emotional well-being. His high-energy immersion coaching, coupled with tools people can use to maintain the momentum long after his seminars, provide the kind of intense environment many people need to start changing their attitudes and behavior.
“The state you are in determines your abilities. Everyone’s got the ability. It’s like I have a great computer but if I’m not going to plug it in, I am not going to have much power,” he explains.
