Have you seen “I Am Not Your Guru?”
It’s the new Tony Robbins documentary on Netflix following six days at a Tony Robbins Seminar.
It’s good movie, but there is one point that stuck out. One sentence, hidden in the middle of the documentary, that struck me.
Tony was telling the story of his childhood. His mother was violent and unstable. Tony was talking about it and said, “I had to learn practical psychology.”
Tony didn’t have time for fancy ideas, for debates about what the ego means, to take classes, or to write papers. He didn’t have time to learn the history of psychology. He needed some fucking good ideas. He needed them right away.
