Anthony Robbins

Someone put up the video of Anthony Robbins' motivational talk at YouTube. Wow, a complete 3-hr talk is available free.

I watched the whole talk. While I was doing it, something kept proping up asking me to watch the video clips on 'the truth about Anthony Robbins', clips that dispute Anthony's teaching.

I have never attended Anthony's motivational talks before, but based on what I saw on the video, what he teaches is a form of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), also advocated by Dr. Van Tharp, a trader's psychology guru, and successful trader/investor.

Personally, I think NLP is useful & effective. It helps you to condition yourself on the positive side, helps people to get better results. However, just like anything in this world, there is no such thing as 100% guaranteed. NLP may not work on some individuals, especially people who have no faith in it in the first place. It won't work on people who have a closed mind, either.

You need to have a bit of faith, a lot of open-mind for NLP to be successful. And equally important, you need to be someone who will take actions, not just sitting there, listening, and then forget about it.
