“Tony Robbins is a shyster.”
That’s what a friend said to me when he noticed my collection of cd’s and books authored by the tall moron. I understood exactly what the dude was saying even though he had no idea how much he had just told me.
Is Anybody Home?
My pal’s lights are on but he has vacated the premises and fled to some morally and intellectually higher ground. He now resides in the land of “None shall be brighter nor more aware than me” and has no need for any more knowledge than he now possesses.
Like most folks, my buddy knows all he finds it necessary to which pretty much puts fellows like Tony the Giant Within out of business. Or does it?
Nothing from Nothing is Nothing
Most people wander through life like my friend, completely oblivious as to what realities may be unfolding around them and they are untroubled by what they do not know.

I find it intriguing that Andrew Carnegie actually foresaw a time when the land would be dotted with libraries which would allow the common man to learn whatever he desired in order to become all he could be. And the common man stays away from these libraries in droves. Most have never darkened the doorway of such an establishment and it’s FREE!
Useless Libraries and Tony The Trickster
Its not hard to imagine that if most folks don’t see the benefit in learning from free and readily available sources like public libraries, they sure as hail aren’t going to be spending any loot on the likes of T. Robbins cds. So I see exactly what my friend meant when he called one of my mentors a neer’do well.
What he was really saying is that his head was full and he needed to be excused. And I have done just that.
No such excuses exist for the likes of you and me, however.
Because we know we know nothing, right?
Thank you, friend.
