I get ideas in my head about things/people/books and then I am stubborn about changing those ideas. For instance, I thought that Tony Robbins was simply some dude in the 1980's who was in some slightly sleazy "make tons of money this way" infomercials.
Then the other day, someone I respect as a blogger posted a video and it was of him and I thought, "What!? Okay, I respect this blogger so I will watch it..."
Now I am absolutely hooked because, as it turns out, Robbins is obsessed with the same question with which I am obsessed: What is the difference between people who have fulfilled lives and those who don't? In particular, what is the difference between someone who has a rough early life and comes out spiritually mature, etc. and someone who has the same but who does not quite make it?
If you have preconceptions about him, do as I did and watch anyway. You'll be glad you did:
