LOL. Great headline.

If you give a guy like Tony Robbins any of your hard earned money, you're probably going to get burned no matter what.
 
2012-07-21 12:39:01 PM  
The 1980's called and said to knock this stuff off.

OK - you'd think that after the first TWENTY FARKING BURN CASES, you'd say, "Yanno, I think I'll forego the woo-woo part of the program."

"Spiritual" people are a bunch of servile f*ckwits.

pffft, receiving medical attention at a self-help seminar.

Say what you will about Tony Robbins, you have to admire a man who always leads with his chin.

A+ headline. Will read again.

Talk about injuryt to insult. I hope he charged extra for the ones who ended up in the hostpital.
 
2012-07-21 04:16:01 PM  
Oh tell me about it...I've seen so many of these "self-help" wankers...

Hey, dumbass. Know who doesn't do "walk through fire" stunts?
Anybody who knows what the hell they are doing. Especially soft, tender office pukes wearing polyester pants.

Wanna build teamwork? Try learning from the people that do it.

Say, the NAVY SEAL log walk. That's the one where several guys who are already in better shape than your pale, Dockers-clad ass will ever be in work together to shoulder a telephone pole and walk with it. When they're done, there's physical evidence of their teamwork: the pole, once at Point A, is now at Point B. And you don't dare quit halfway, because if one guy quits it just gets harder for all the rest, and you know you'll never hear the end of that.

(the smartassed drill instructor will then put the pole back at Point A with the help of a forklift, thus driving home the point that we've built machines that can do things you can't...use them!)

(meanwhile, in Japan...

I have a childhood friend who does motivational speaking. He's an amazing narcissist. Cocky beyond belief. I take great pleasure in knowing his kids are horrible and his wife has a firm two handed grip around his testicles.
 
2012-07-21 04:58:14 PM  
According to an eyewitness:

"First one person, then a couple minutes later another one, and there was just a line of people walking on that fire. It was just bizarre, man."
 
2012-07-21 05:34:02 PM  
Dumbasses. You're supposed to wait hours until the top layer of embers is only warm enough to walk on. Yes, that's pretty much a pointless exercise but hey, it's either that or you burn your feet and go to hospital.

What? You're an idiot?

Hi, my name is Sebastian Muamba from Nigeria....

At least to judge from seeing him on TV and on YouTube for free- Robbins, when speaking to a live audience, is actually engaging and very funny, an extremely good speaker. I'd put him in the top 5% of people in terms of speaking ability.

That, plus a shameless willingness to spout psycho-babble and nonsense to gullible middle-class people ready to hear how they just need to do a better job of believing in themselves to really live a glittering life, has made him a very wealthy man.

Still. I get how he can sell his stuff on infomercials, but really, why is he treated seriously on, say, the Today show? Have they no shame? Guess not.
 
2012-07-21 05:52:19 PM  
I never understood that "walking on hot coals" thing.

If I go to a motivational seminar, I want to walk on stacks of $100 bills, and then jump into a pile of hookers.

/hot farking coals? I'm motivated to skip that party.

What you did there, I see it.

Are these the same people that still hold onto their Dave Del Dotto real estate books?

Not after the first ONE???

In the mid 80's I was a manager for a 14 store chain, McCurry Camera. It seems like each week either Tony Robbins or Zig Ziglar were giving us motivational speeches. God how I hated those guys. Suffice to say the company went bankrupt in the early 90's.

How much more motivated do you need to be to walk on stacks of money and piles of hookers?

Red Shirt Blues: Speaking of the 90's


Ha ha Susan Powder (I think that's her name) hit me with her car once back in 1990. She made an illegal left turn and nailed me in the crosswalk. She got out and started screaming at me . I told her to fark off and ripped the side view mirror off her car. I was sore for months.

Gee, all those folks who think they can get rich by suing me will be surprised when they find out I'm LIVING IN A VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!!!

In other news, corporate executives not bright enough to avoid walking on fire, behaving like lemmings.
