I recently watched a video by the famous life coach Anthony “Tony” Robbins and couldn’t help but think that this is exactly what soccer players need to watch and hear. Many people incorrectly label Tony as a motivational speaker. Tony is not a motivation speaker, Tony is a life coach. What’s the difference? A motivational speaker can be anybody; it is someone who understands all the trends that lead to success and then tells others about these theories. Life coaches like Tony, on the other hand, are proven professionals. He has actually taken his message, gone out into the world and challenged people to change their lives. He has proven over and over that when you align your life goals with your life practices – or as Tony refers to it as “standards” and “rituals” – you can become better than ever at whatever it is you want.
