Angelo Robles: Tony, two of your best-known quotes are: “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten,” and “In life, you need either inspiration or desperation.” For all your enormous impact and success, you continue to do things differently, evolve, and transform with some amazing results, including engaging with the family office and family leadership worlds. What catalyzes that transformation for you now? Is it all inspiration at this point?
Tony Robbins: What drives me today is the same thing that’s always driven me for the past 42 years—HUNGER. It’s an insatiable hunger to do, be, give, and create more. In my mind, there are two universal principles that lead to fulfillment at a deep level in all human beings: You must grow, and you must give. Success in measurable terms can be a great mile marker, but what keeps me perpetually hungry is a deep connection to my purpose, passion, and IMPACT.
Angelo: What keeps you growing and evolving? Where does the urgency come from to continually expand? How do you stay hungry and driven? What motivates you when money is not an issue?
Tony: At this stage of my life, I’m fortunate enough to not HAVE to work another day in my life, but I work harder than ever because it excites me. For me, it’s all about ongoing impact and creating goals that JUICE me.
How many of you have outrun your goals? Meaning, you’ve done better than you originally planned in a variety of areas? I’ve certainly done this and I’ve had to re-evaluate what the next level looks like for me.
A few years ago, when I was writing Money: Master the Game, I sat down and created some big target goals that I want to accomplish over the next 5-10 years. I looked at the number of meals that I’ve provided personally and through my foundation over the last 3 decades and said, what if I did more in ONE year that in the last 30? And not only that, what if I made it sustainable? That’s how I created the 1 Billion Meal Challenge in partnership with Feeding America, which will have provided 1 billion meals by 2025 (currently have provided 425 million). I also created goals around other areas of impact I’m passionate about, like planting 100 million trees (have already planted 10 million), rescuing 10,000 children from the horrors of slavery in partnership with Operation Underground Railroad (2,000 have already been saved). I SEEK OUT areas where I can have the most impact and create compelling goals around them.
