If no one has reminded you lately, Tony Robbins specifically reminds us of how our decisions impact our current situations. And he does so in the most loving way you can imagine.
“Awaken The Giant Within” is a massive 512-page undertaking with countless lessons on living a remarkable life.
Firstly, decisions should be viewed cumulatively. What we decide to do over the course of days, weeks, months, and years shapes our reality. Tony Robbins says that our decisions are the pathway to power over our lives.
Be mindful of 3 key decisions:
- The decision about what to focus on
- The decision about what things mean to you
- The decision about what to do to create the results you desire
Focusing on the above decisions will give you the power to shape your destiny.
As a side note, if you are uncomfortable making decisions, try making more of them. Nothing flexes your decision-making muscle than actually making more decisions. Start small and build your way up.
Setting standards for yourself and others is the next key ingredient. We should set standards for what we consider to be acceptable behavior for ourselves and decide what we should expect from those we care about. Don’t mistake this for “rules” though. It is simply a way of not accepting limitations and altering your belief(s) about your ability by changing your emotional state into one of certainty. Being certain is a powerful reoccurring theme here.
Commitment is another important aspect of creating your destiny. He says that making a true decision means committing to achieving a result and then cutting yourself off from any other possibility. I have personally experienced this. There is a huge difference between saying that you want something and committing yourself to attain it.
This blog wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Tony’s principles of CANI (Constant and never-ending improvement) and NAC (Neuro-associative conditioning).
To avoid becoming complacent, we should always remember that there is something we can improve on or achieve. Always.
NAC is a step-by-step process to creating change in any area of your life.
Combining the two principles will lead to an infinite number of possible changes and miracles in your life.
Although I haven’t covered a majority of “Awaken The Giant Within,” I hope this inspires you to take action wherever it is necessary for your life.
Lastly, what an incredible human being Tony Robbins is.
