Have you heard of Tony Robbins? Or perhaps I should ask if you’ve heard Tony Robbins. His voice is a booming broadcast of whatever message he’s trying to get across and trust me, you want to hear that message. Mr. Robbins (but he’ll tell you to call him Tony) is a self-made millionaire, an entrepreneur, an author, a life coach and above all, the inspiration you need to turn your life around. With millions of people already implementing his teachings into their everyday lives, Robbins is a man full of life, and its answers. Here are a few treasure quotes made by Tony Robbins, and they will change the way you look at your life.
“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”
“Why am I not losing weight?” “Why can’t I get a promotion?” These are only some questions that so many of us have asked ourselves. The answer comes from the habits that we follow. If we want to lose weight, we can’t continue pigging out and wondering why we can’t shed any extra pounds. We desperately want a promotion at work, but we don’t pull our weight. The circumstances are lives are made of, come from the actions we carry out. If we don’t change our actions, our conditions will not change either.
“The past does not equal the future.”
I’ll tell you something that you might not want to hear. You are not “special” because you’ve experienced hardships in your life. I’m not being mean, I’m being honest. Having said that let me clarify that having gone through something traumatic or heart-breaking is one of the most difficult experiences we can deal with. The point that Tony Robbins is trying to drive home, is that everyone has experienced these hardships. Robbins explains that whatever happened in the past does not mean it is still happening in the future.
“Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.”
If only I had to count the number of times I didn’t ask a question because I thought it was a dumb question. Thank goodness I don’t do that, but I used to… a lot. The first step to getting answers and to getting guidance, is to ask questions. It’s better to know more than to wonder what you should have known. The quality of the questions that you ask will determine the results that you get from them. Lesson of the day – ask questions!
“A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”
“I am going to stop eating cookies during the week.” *Eats a cookie* – “I’ll start this diet next week, when all of these cookies are gone.” Decisions are great, but they don’t mean anything until they’re actually transformed into actions. It’s all very well and dandy to say that you’ve decided to get out of bed on the first alarm ring, but pressing that snooze button over and over again doesn’t exactly reflect that.
“Identify your problems, but give your power and energy to solutions.”
Hey, I’m not saying that there aren’t any problems in your life. But if you’re willing to dedicate so much energy and attention to those problems, then you’re probably going to be stuck with them. Problems have solutions, and when you dedicate your power towards finding them, you will be surprised with the results. We are full of energy, don’t you think it would make sense to direct that energy to solving problems, and not complaining about them?
