During an interview on FOX Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast, entrepreneur Tony Robbins said America is lacking a vision.
“As corny as it sounds, everyone needs a compelling future,” he said. “Everybody needs something to move towards. If you don’t have something to move towards, you settle for where things are and you get upset with where things are.”
Robbins reflected on the history of the country and how, at different times, there were different types of visions held by American leaders.
“[President] Kennedy brought a vision…It’s like we’re going to go to the moon. In various stages people have visions… we’re going to bring back America. What’s our vision right now… to pay our bills?”
The entrepreneur and motivational speaker explained his approach to helping people.
“It’s not about being positive, it’s about being smart,” Robbins said. “When you’re in a lousy state you treat other people poorly, your family poorly, you perform poorly. When you’re in your best state, you’re going to use your capabilities more. But right now, we’re missing a compelling future. We’re missing somebody saying ‘this is what we’re going to do and how we’re going to do it.’”
