The gift of drive

Finding your ability to become more

Select Your Preferred Platform

What is the single most important ingredient for an extraordinary life, a life on your terms? Tony believes the answer is hunger. Drive. It’s even more valuable than intelligence. Because while intelligence is important, it isn’t the end-all, be-all. We all know highly intelligent people who never accomplish anything – because they don’t have the gift of drive

Hunger is the desire to do more, be more, give more, create more. This hunger isn’t a personality trait. It’s more like an energy. It is one of the greatest gifts of life. But where does it come from? The truth is that it often comes from pain. You are hungry for more because you know that something is missing. But you are not willing to let that pain make you a victim. You want to take your painful experiences and use them so that others don’t have to experience the same. 

Drive is a hunger for something greater than yourself. It’s never about you. It’s about who you serve. It’s a deep understanding that you’re made to be more, give more and do more. Drive gives us limitless vitality and the ability to accomplish anything. Because when you serve something greater than yourself, you’ll never hurt for energy. You’ll never hurt for excitement. You’ll never hurt for the drive or the ability to push yourself through limitations. We’ll all do more for others than we’ll do for ourselves. That’s the beauty of being human.

Tony speaks about discovering his own drive, years ago, that has never left him. He realized “I know who I am as a man, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, financially, psychologically, is so much more than I’m demonstrating. Something clicked and I just never let that hunger disappear again.”

In this podcast we’ll hear more from Tony as well as from two incredible humans who discovered the gift of drive and are making a difference in the lives of others. 

Two decades ago, Gabi Laszinger got lost in Kathmandu – and never left. Since then, she’s committed her life to rescuing children in Nepal who would otherwise be left behind. You’ll hear how Gabi’s internal drive has helped her overcome tremendous setbacks and save lives.

You’ll also hear from a man named Al Eisaian, who immigrated to the US from Iran in the late 1970s, by himself, at just 13 years old. Having experienced food insecurity growing up, Al used his own struggle to not only overcome his hardships – but to do good for others by setting out to solve the world’s looming agriculture crisis. 

Let these stories inspire you to never settle. Find a new level of mission, a new level of drive, a new level of hunger, to be more, to do more, to give more, to share more, to experience more of this gift of life.

The most successful people in the world have insatiable hunger to do more, be more, give more, and create more. Tony Robbins
