Tony Robbins: Philanthropy and Controversy
Tony Robbins - Who is he? Well, first and foremost he is the leading man in the field of motivational seminars and motivational speaking. He is a man who came from practically nothing (just like many others all over the world), and he made a real life for himself. He picked up the shattered pieces that were his life in childhood and he decided that changes needed to be made. He made the decision to believe in himself and have more confidence in himself as well. By doing this, he was able to transform his life from having nothing but a few bucks to having wealth and great success in his life. That is a fabulous transformation that most only dream of, but with more confidence he believes that you can have the same results. However, with all of the success he has experienced, there are some philanthropic work and controversies that revolve around Tony Robbins that need to be noted and discussed. There can never seem to be a man full of success without there being some history there. Don’t you agree?
What philanthropic work should be noted about Tony Robbins?

There are many great things that Tony Robbins has done for others.
One of the things that should be noted before further discussing the greatness that is Tony Robbins is that there is a secret to life. That secret is: CREATING A PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE. You see Tony Robbins didn’t just have an idea that brought him to success, but he put his ideas and thoughts to action and that is what a personal development plan is all about. It is all about how you want to improve your life.
The first helpful thing that Tony Robbins has going for him is the charity that he founded called the Anthony Robbins Foundation. This foundation helps empower people and organizations all over the place including those inside prisons, those in schools, those who have no jobs, and those with successful careers as well. One of the great things about this foundation is the Basket Brigade which takes baskets full of household goods and food to those who need it. This program serves millions around the world. During 2014, he also worked with Feeding America by using his book’s profits to help feed millions of people as well. However, with all of this greatness there are bound to be questioning factors behind his wealth.
What controversies have been discussed about Tony Robbins?
Tony Robbins really is a top of the line, successful motivational speaker who is known all around the world. However, with success comes controversy, and that is how this world goes round. During 1995 RRI (which is Robbins Research International) had created a settlement agreement for the misrepresentation of potential earnings and had to pay $221,260. After that a few years passed until 1998 when Tony Robbins was sued for plagiarism and copyright infringement and he was ordered to pay $650,000.
With those damages, there is some news to the other side. In 2001, Tony Robbins was awarded $20,000 after suing The Vancouver Sun for libel accusations and defamation. Tony Robbins was also noted in a San Jose Mercury News article stating that people were burned and hospitalized at one of his events but this was later retracted.
