Tony Robbins on happiness: "The quality of your life is the quality of where you live emotionally"

Coming up tonight at 9, Piers Morgan invites Tony Robbins back to the program, as the best-selling author and legendary peak performance strategist shares his patented blend of positivity and mental strength.

Addressing such issues as trauma and stress in one's life, Robbins says the fundamental tenant is to understand that everything begins within one's mind:

"First of all, I want to make one thing clear: The quality of your life is the quality of where you live emotionally," he tells the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "But we all have a home. Angry people find a way to get angry even if their life doesn’t have anything to be angry about. We can always find it. Sad people find a way to be sad. Caring people find a way to care for other people. So one thing to identify is where are you living? What’s your home? What’s your habit? And then the way to change it."

Telling the tale of days in which he found himself homeless, the 52-year-old self-help guru reveals the ways in which he found the strength to persevere, and prosper: FULL POST

Clips From Last Night: Newt Gingrich on gun legislation; "Gun Girls" and why they love the AR-15

On the heels of the latest gun-related tragedy, where on Saturday a 15-year-old New Mexico boy murdered his parents and three of his siblings, Piers Morgan welcomed back recurring guest Newt Gingrich Thursday. Gingrich, who joined the program live, brought along his signature brand of candor and insight on issues such as gun legislation and gun control.

"Dianne Feinstein is attacked by many Republicans as being somebody that wants to ban all guns," said Gingrich on the public impression of Sen. Feinstein's stance on guns. "Do you know how many different types of guns she has permitted to remain in legal circulation in America under any proposal?"

"If your primary concern is saving lives," continued Gingrich, "you'd have to look at pistols because pistols are the primary killers and they're the primary killers in big cities."

Also on the program, "Gun Girls" Celia Bigelow and Aubrey Blankenship spoke with Morgan from the Blue Ridge Arsenal in Chantilly, Virginia.

Bigelow shared with Morgan why her weapon of choice for self defense was the AR-15 style assault rifle. "I want a gun that can hold a lot of ammo because if I'm faced with an intruder or multiple intruders that come into my home, I want to make sure I have enough ammo to get the job done, especially if they're armed."

Clips From Last Night: Uncle of alleged teen shooter speaks out; John Elway on Manti Te'o

On Thursday, Piers Morgan spoke with Eric Griego the uncle of Nehemiah Griego, 15, who allegedly murdered his parents and three of his siblings on Saturday in his home in New Mexico.

In addition to murder, the police claimed that the teen also intended to commit a mass shooting at the local Wal-Mart.

"He said a lot of things. Apparently, he was not in a great state of mind," said Greigo about his nephew.

Greigo also shared with Morgan that his nephew was taught how to shoot the AR-15 rifle that the teen allegedly used on his family members.

"My brother had dedicated the last 25 years of his life to try to get people who were in trouble or under addiction to turn their lives around," explained Greigo. "And by the nature of his work, there were people who were unseemly, and so he worried for the welfare of his family."

"The way he chose to deal with it was he thought his oldest son should be, essentially when he wasn't around, as this night that this terrible thing happened, that he should be able to know how to shoot the weapon and know how to protect his family."

Also on the program, football legend John Elway joined Morgan in studio and discussed the recent controversy surrounding football player Manti Te'o. FULL POST
