35 Quotes From Tony Robbins: How To Become Extraordinary And Successful

35 Quotes From Tony Robbins: How To Become Extraordinary And Successful

Please don’t call Robbins a motivator, because as he has said: “If all you do is motivate, without a strategy, it’s like a warm bath. “It’s nice. It’s not enough.”

Tony Robbins, as he reveals to the Miami Herald, prefers to think of himself as an inspirer. The life coach and performance strategist extraordinaire is known for providing powerful words of wisdom on how to achieve greatness and success in businesses and life.

His first best-selling book “Awaken the Giant Within” continues to inspire millions of people around the world to great success even today, while his recently published book “MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom” (his first major book in 20 years) is equally inspiring.

“You have to keep growing; keep expanding; keep adding your skills. You got to be fit,” he says. “It’s about impact, and it’s all about love for me. Quite frankly, I’m a love bug.”

If you’re ready for some more of Robbins’ magic, here are some powerful quotes for you. These quotes will make you think about life, success and, hopefully, provide you with the inspiration you need to take action and become extraordinary. Enjoy!

  4. “Goals are like magnets. They’ll attract the things that make them come true.”

  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.”

  6. “Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.”

  7. “When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”

  8. “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.”

  9. “Where focus goes, energy flows.”

  10. “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” – (Henry Ford, quoted by Tony Robbins)

  11. “It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”

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

  13. “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.”

  14. “In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”

  22. “You can’t hit a target if you don’t know what it is.”

  24. “You either master money, or, on some level, money masters you.”

  25. “And always remember the ultimate truth: life is not about money, it’s about emotion.”

  29. “If you don’t set a baseline standard for what you’ll accept in life, you’ll find it’s easy to slip into behaviors and attitudes or a quality of life that’s far below what you deserve.”

  30. “Your income right now is a result of your standards, it is not the industry; it is not the economy.”

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
