Tony Robbins on being abused: "I never talked about that"

On Thursday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed author and motivational speaker Tony Robbins for an engaging and enlightening face to face interview.

Joining Piers Morgan in studio, the self-help guru opened up about his traumatic upbringing, which included an absentee father, and an abusive mother:

"She was physical loving, but she would also go to the other side because she had substance challenges," Robbins shared with the host. "What it made me was a practical psychologist."

Robbins said the experience "gave me I think skill sets in life that allowed me to read almost anybody in the future because it was life and death in that case."

"I know what suffering feels like," confessed Robbins. "That gives you a hunger to make sure other people don't suffer."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the two-time best-seller further explains how his childhood yielded important training for a career spent helping others.

    It’s easy to be a Communist when there is no requirement to ecrfone the party line .MC If you think the Culture is a communist system then you either don't understand communism or Bank's writing.
