Breakthrough

BreakthroughAfter only two episodes NBC has officially pulled the plug on the T.V. show, Breakthrough with Tony Robbins. No matter what you think of him, even a tiny bit of investigation will reveal that this guy has helped a tremendous about of people. After three decades of assisting individuals discover their true potential he finally got his chance at a prime time program.

The story seems to be that only 2.8 million people watched the last episode. As a result, NBC has determined that the show is not commercially viable. I guess that business is business. Part of me understands and part of me is quite disturbed. Am I bringing up a child in a world devoid of hope?

From the outside looking in, Tony Robbins has generated an army of minions who require his energy and motivation to function. In truth, he has dynamically assisted people who are already achievers and in search of accomplishment on another level. Therefore, I was personally very excited about his show. Having been a student of his programs for twenty years I know that this is precisely what the country needs right now during these challenging times. The theme of the show was to take people who are in desperation and chronicle the process of them experiencing a breakthrough in only 30 days. I watched the first two episodes and thought they were tremendously inspirational. I loved them.

The fact that a prime time show of this magnitude had failed so quickly is in my opinion an indictment of the American public. In a world where Jersey Shore is a huge hit and in its second season, how can a program granting inspiration and motivation laced with the theme of human possibility find itself failing so miserably.

To me this is not about Tony Robbins. It’s about us taking control of our own futures. I am pondering whether we as a society have become so apathetic that we have given up on each other, our hopes and our dreams. Is Breakthrough with Tony Robbins “the end all be all” to becoming happy, healthy and wise? Not necessarily. However, I am convinced the intention was for it to be tool to be utilized for a positive result. The fact this was underused is symbolic of what is going on in this great country of ours right now.

I leave you with this question: Are you really doing all you can do to get what you really want?

Let me know your thoughts.

Will’s wisdom


I personally find Will Smith fascinating. I really grew up with him. We are about the same age and I have witnessed every aspect of his evolution. Just think about it. There are thousands of people trying to make it in the entertainment industry. The vast majority don’t make it. On the flip side this guy has been successful in music, television as well as film. This feat is nothing short of astounding. What is actually just as incredible is his philosophy about what success is and how it is achieved. You can take this and apply it to all aspects of your life: weight loss, career or otherwise.

Take your clothes off


This post is actually a call to get those
clothes off your home exercise equipment.
It’s cliche’ to use home equipment as clothes
racks. I am looking to start a campaign for
people to begin taking their clothes off and start
start using their treadmill, stationary bikes and
pull up bars for what they were designed for.
Join me in taking your clothes off.

Leave a comment letting me know about your experience.

Looking for motivation

motivationI am working on a presentation on passion and motivation for next week. I was kind of reaching for ideas when an old friend reached out to me for some words of encouragement on how to get started  back with her exercise plan. She had a goal of running a half marathon. She completed but can’t find it in herself to get started again. Here is what I wrote to her. Maybe it will help you. Read more…

Is it genes or habbits?

I am often mystified by the phenomenon of the human mind. We all have the ability to rationalize things to ourselves. I know that I have done so on occasion. Maybe it’s part of being human. One of the most powerful things you can do is tell yourself the truth. If a situation is messed up, it is ok to say that it is messed up. You have to see situations as they are. However, you also have to see them as you want them to be. The cartoon in this post is a perfect example. The guy is complaining about the “fat gene” as he wolfs down a table full of burgers. He is not being truthful. Whether it is weight loss, finances, relationships career, it doesn’t matter. Do yourself a favor by telling yourself the truth. Then claim your power by envisioning how you want it to be. Next, go out and doing something to change it.
