Tony Robbins – Blame Them

Motivational speaker Tony Robbins explains that it is important to give credit to the people in your life who have given you both happiness and pain that shaped you into the greater person you are today.


Because if you’re gonna blame people for all the shit, you better blame them for all the good too. If you’re gonna give them credit for everything that’s fucked up, then you have to give them credit for everything that’s great. ’Cause life is not so simple and black and white. My mother beat the shit out of me. She loved me. She was freaked out I was going to leave. I was her source of everything. I blame her for all the beauty in my life. I blame her that I have the woman I have in my life, because I cherish my wife because I know what the opposite is. I blame her for the capacity to feel and care. I blame her for my insatiable hunger to end suffering for any human I can. ’Cause I suffered a ton. If she had been the mother I had wanted, I would not be the man I am proud to be. If we can realize that life is always happening for us, not to us, game over. All of the pain and suffering disappears.”
