In this video from Tony Robbins he talks about the process he goes through any time that he’s preparing to go on stage or present in any manner where he wants to have an influence on those he’s presenting to.
It’s not very often that you have the opportunity to hear Tony teach how he does what he does, but in this video he opens up. He explains how he can spend a full day in front of tens of thousands of people, teaching them and keeping them engaged in what they are learning.
Enjoy this opportunity to learn from the best at what he does. Watch this video multiple times and take notes. Then, let that learning lead to action in your life.

I just finished reading The Power of Persuasion: How We’re Bought and Sold by Robert Levine. Whether we are dealing with our clients, employees or our kids we are always trying to influence or persuade in one way or another. Though I don’t consider myself a hard core negotiator, I do enjoy reading and learning more about persuasion, negotiation and influence. On my Reading List I do have a section dedicated to this topic of the books that I have read.
I thought that it would be interesting to try Ms. Morgan’s approach and see where it goes. I would like to continue to learn more on this subject and I want to ask anyone who may read this post to share with me their favorite book or audio book on persuasion, negotiation or influence. I may not get anyone giving me a suggestion, but I hope I do. Let’s see what happens…
“Decisive, swift talkers are actually no more sure of their facts than are their more hesitant counterparts. But, more important ant, they create the impression of confidence and, as a result, are perceived to be more expert, intelligent, and knowledgeable.”
