Tony Robbins is a bestselling author, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. For more than thirty-seven years, millions of people have enjoyed the warmth, humor, and dynamic presentation of Mr. Robbins’s corporate and personal development events. He is the nation’s #1 life and business strategist. He’s called upon to consult and coach with some of the world’s finest athletes, entertainers, Fortune 500 CEOs, and even presidents of nations.

He is responsible for feeding more than 42 million people. This year, through his partnership with Feeding America, Robbins has committed to personally provide 50 million meals to those in need, and he is at work to get matching funds to feed 100 million more.

I would by live with passion again, but just remember you only need one self help product, as they are pretty much all the same. Take action, for get about the past, its gone, work on yourself and you can change your world for the better.
You only fail in life, if you give up and dont try again, use this tape as a guide to changing your life.

Believe it or not your are Whole, right here and now, your Wholeness lies in knowing that you are neither your body nor even your mind. By trying to change or fix the mind, you only trip yourself up by continuing the illusion that you are the mind. If you did not identify with the thoughts in the mind, you would be free and experience Wholeness and the Oneness of life, then you would be free from all the COMPULSIVE chasing after goals and a slave to all your desires (attachments). A deep sense of abiding peace would set in.
All the "fix it" techniques keep you tripped up constantly. They focus on changing or fixing your mind, thoughts, attitudes etc. but, as I said, if you learn to rise above that and realize that you are beyond even the mind and discover your self as Pure Awareness itself, then what would you need to learn all the NLP/Robbins fix it techniques for? Your mind would be silent and you would live in your True state and learn to BE. The more you get hung up on manipulating the mind, the more lost you get.
Please look for some good meditation/Awareness techniques, that would be far more helpful. Just about the best book I've ever come across that explains this masterfully, in a very accessable, non-mystical fashion, is The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle, I highly recommend it.

This tape set is great! Once I was about 2 or 3 minutes into it, I knew I was going to enjoy the whole thing. Robbins is fascinating to listen to -- clearly a master presenter. But more than that, his approach is an energizing blend of sound NLP principles, compassion, encouragement to try new ways of thinking and experiencing, and uncommon good sense.
Robbins has a way of introducing ideas clearly, giving entertaining examples and stories, and providing thought experiments/exercises you can perform for yourself while you are listening to the tapes.
Now, it's easy to be cynical about this sort of thing, to pooh-pooh it, or to cite loftier goals such as total Buddhistic Enlightenment. But for those who haven't closed the doors on the possibility that there might be something of value in learning how to better use one's own mind, and for whom the next step in their personal progress isn't necessarily the Ultimate Nirvana, there are many ideas and fresh approaches in this tape set that could help a person, as a mere, imperfect human being, to get out of a rut or a stuck place and get life moving in a very positive direction -- as Robbins puts it -- with real passion.
If you begin with an attitude of self-exploration, an open mind, and the willingness to learn, there are some real jewels here.
I disagree with the reviewer that said you only need 1 motivational CD, they are all the same, you just have to take action.
Yes, they are all the same basic principles, but I find personally that I need to hear it regularly to stay motivated and in that certain mindset. The more often you hear this stuff in more different ways (various CD's/speakers) the more you will be ingrained with a self-motivating script.
Yes you do have to take action, but i find that action can be more easily sustained on a fairly regular diet of motivational material. The brain is novelty seeking by nature, and a narrow, though repeated, range of exposure to anything (a single CD) will be habituated and lose effectiveness.
I refrained from rating the set at 5 stars due to the multiple references to Mr. Robbins' seminars embedded throughout the recordings. However, in the end that was a small (additional) price to pay for the inspiration and extremely useful concepts that Mr. Robbins offers. I recommend this CD set highly.
"Live With Passion" is a very good set of CDs and the information contained within is worthy of at least a four-star rating. The only reason I stop short of giving it five stars is because I had already heard about 90% of the material in the "Power Talk" series. "Live with Passion" is one of those shortened "crash course" products I mentioned above. It's meant to be a _affordable_ and quick introduction to Tony's methods. Most people could benefit greatly by listening to these recordings and learning about the basics of human behavior and what drives our desires and actions. If you think that sounds too simplistic to be beneficial or think you already know all that stuff on some academic level, I guarantee you do not. Why? Because if you are here looking at and considering buying a Tony Robbins' product it's because some level of contentment has eluded you thus far in your life. And if that is the case then there is something about your own psychology which you do not yet fully understand. Tony's ideas about "Human Needs Psychology" are the bedrock foundation upon which persons of any race, gender, religion/philosophy, sexual orientation, childhood, or education can build a life of achievement and deep meaningful fulfillment. What he teaches is rooted in psychology and neuroscience, not religion or mysticism, thus it is open and available to anyone willing to delve into their own mindset and challenge any beliefs that might be holding them back in life.
"Live with Passion" can also provide new listeners with a good sense of whether or not Tony's personality, manner of presentation, stories and analogies will energize them or if for some reason it turns them off. Whatever the case there is no doubt in my mind that _anyone_ that bothers to carefully listen to all 6 discs will not be able to deny that Tony Robbins is the real deal and he is passionately committed to helping people that are suffering or unhappy with the trajectory of their life. His passion, intensity, energy, empathy and even his silly or corny sense of humor are one hundred percent genuine. Straight up, no BS, the man truly cares. His delivery might not ignite every single individual but the fundamentals of what he teaches are intended for anyone and everyone.
If you purchase this product and enjoy it I'm sure you will want to delve deeper and further investigate Tony's ideas in greater detail. Just remember that there is going to be some overlap between this CD set and several volumes of the "Power Talk" CDs. But by purchasing the individual "Power Talk" CDs you also get some truly fantastic interviews with fascinating people that have great stories, insights, wisdom and humor to share. Personally, the interviews have always been my favorite part out of all of his products, but that's just me. I hope this review will be helpful to others and that it will steer folks in the right direction when they are thinking of purchasing any of Tony's awesome recordings or videos. :)
