ANTHONY ROBBINS: DAY 1

I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denomina tor separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.

I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.

The path to success is to take massive, determined action.

It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.

Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives.

ANTHONY ROBBINS: DAY 2

Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year – and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!

The path to success is to take massive, determined action.

You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.

The action is the foundational key to all success.

I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustrations were laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.

ANTHONY ROBBINS: DAY 3

It’s not what’s happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Instead, it’s your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you’re going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny.

Put yourself in a state of mind where you say to yourself, ‘Here is an opportunity for you to celebrate like never before, my own power, my own ability to get myself to do whatever is necessary.’

Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.

Success in life is the result of good judgment. Good judgment is usually the result of experience. Experience is usually the result of bad judgement.

What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.

The truth of the matter is that there’s nothing you can’t accomplish if: Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the remarkable ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can save their lives.

ANTHONY ROBBINS: DAY 4

I’ve continued to recognise the power individuals have to change virtually anything and everything in their lives in an instant. I’ve learned that the resources we need to turn our dreams into reality are within us, merely waiting for the day when we decide to wake up and claim our birthright.

We are the only beings on the planet who lead such rich internal lives that it’s not the events that matter most to us, but instead, it’s how we interpret those events that will determine how we think about ourselves and how we will act in the future.

You see, it’s never the environment; it’s never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events — how we interpret them — that shapes who we are today and who we’ll become tomorrow.

It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.

I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.

ANTHONY ROBBINS: DAY 5

One reason, so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.

If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.

Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life.

You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don’t think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully.

All personal breakthroughs being with a change in beliefs. So how do we change? The most effective way is to get your brain to associate massive pain to the old belief. You must feel deep in your gut that not only has this belief cost you pain in the past, but it costs you in the present and, ultimately, can only bring you pain in the future. Then you must associate tremendous pleasure to the idea of adopting a new, empowering belief.

ANTHONY ROBBINS: DAY 6

It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.

It’s not what’s happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it’s your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you’re going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny.

More than anything else, I believe it’s our decisions, not the conditions of our lives, that determine our destiny.

The most important thing you can do to achieve your goals is to make sure that as soon as you set them, you immediately begin to create momentum. The most important rules that I ever adopted to help me in achieving my goals were those I learned from a very successful man who taught me first to write down the goal, and then to never leave the site of setting a goal without first taking some form of positive action toward its attainment.

You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.

ANTHONY ROBBINS: DAY 7

Your life changes the moment you make a new, congruent, and committed decision.

Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it’s who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfilment.

You decide what it is that you’re committed to achieving,

1. You’re willing to take massive action,

2. You notice what’s working or not, and

3. You continue to change your approach until you achieve what you want, using whatever life gives you along the way.

We will act consistently with our view of who we truly are, whether that view is accurate or not.

If you can’t, you must. If you must, you can.

ANTHONY ROBBINS: DAY 8

Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards. When people ask me what changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that the most important thing was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all the things I would no longer tolerate, and all the things that I aspired to becoming.
