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.”

  1. “Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.”

  2. “We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.”

  3. “Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”

  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.”

  15. “It’s not about the goal. It’s about growing to become the person that can accomplish that goal.”

  16. “You become what you do most of the time.”

  17. “Every problem is a gift–without problems we would not grow.”

  18. “Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment.”

  19. “It’s your unlimited power to care and to love that can make the biggest difference in the quality of your life.”

  20. “Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.”

  21. “Our beliefs about what we are and what we can be precisely determine what we can be”

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

  23. “I think money makes people more of who they are. If you’re mean, you’ve got more to be mean with. If you’re giving, you’ve got more to give. It’s a magnifying device. In today’s world, it’s nothing. It’s ones and zeros.”

  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.”

  26. “Lack of emotion causes lack of progress and lack of motivation.”

  27. “There is no greatness without a passion to be great, whether it’s the aspiration of an athlete or an artist, a scientist, a parent, or a businessperson.”

  28. “You have to make the shift from being a consumer in the economy to becoming an owner—and you do it by becoming an investor.”

  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.”

  31. “Things do not have meaning. We assign meaning to everything.”

  32. “The path to success is to take massive, determined action.”

  33. “The secret to unleashing your true power is setting goals that are exciting enough that they truly inspire your creativity and ignite your passion.”

  34. “It’s what you practice in private that you will be rewarded for in public.”

  35. “Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun; be crazy; be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process.”

What Makes People Happy? 20 Secrets of “Always Happy” People

What Makes People Happy? 20 Secrets of “Always Happy” People

Some people just seem to float through life with a relentless sense of happiness – through the toughest of times, they’re unfazed and aloof, stopping to smell the roses and drinking out of a glass half full.

They may not have much to be happy about, but the simplicity behind that fact itself may make them happy.

It’s all a matter of perspective, conscious effort and self-awareness. Listed below are a number of reasons why some people are always happy.

1. They Manage Their Expectations

They’re not crushed when they don’t get what they want – or misled into expecting to get the most out of every situation. They approach every situation pragmatically, hoping for the best but being prepared for the worst.

2. They Don’t Set Unrealistic Standards

Similar to the last point, they don’t live their lives in a constant pursuit towards impossible visions of perfection, only to always find themselves falling short of what they want.

3. They Don’t Take Anything for Granted

Happiness rests with feeling fulfilled – those who fail to stop and appreciate what they have every now and again will never experience true fulfillment.

4. They’re Not Materialistic

There are arguing viewpoints on whether or not money can really buy happiness; if it can, then we know from experience that we can never be satisfied because there will always be something newer or better that we want. Who has ever had enough money?

5. They Don’t Dwell

They don’t sweat the small things or waste time worrying about things that don’t really matter at the end of the day. They don’t let negative thoughts latch onto them and drain them or distract them. Life’s too short to worry.

6. They Care About Themselves First

They’re independent, care for themselves and understand that they must put their needs first in order to accommodate the needs of others.

They indulge, aim to get what they want, make time for themselves and are extremely self-reliant.

7. They Enjoy the Little Things

They stop to smell the roses. They’re accustomed to find serenity when it’s available, to welcome entertainment or a stimulating discussion with a stranger when it crosses their path. They don’t overlook the small things in life that can be just as important.

8. They Can Adapt

They’re not afraid of change and they work to make the most out of new circumstances, good or bad. They thrive under pressure, are not overwhelmed easily and always embrace a change of pace.

9. They Experiment

They try new things, experience new flavors and never shy away from something they have yet to experience. They never order twice from the same menu.

10. They Take Their Time

They don’t unnecessarily rush through life. They work on their own schedule to the extent that they can and maneuver through life at their own relaxing pace.

11. They Employ Different Perspectives

They’re not stuck in one perspective; a loss can result in a new opportunity, hitting rock bottom can mean that there’s no where to go but up.

12. They Seek to Learn

Their constant pursuit of knowledge keeps them inspired and interested in life. They cherish information and are on a life-long quest to learn as much as they can.

13. They Always Have a Plan

They don’t find themselves drifting without purpose. When something doesn’t go as planned, they have a plan for every letter in the alphabet to fall back on.

14. They Give Respect to Get It

They are respectful and, in turn, are seen as respectable; the respect they exude earns them the respect they deserve.

Advertising

15. They Consider Every Opportunity

They always have their eyes open for a new road, a new avenue worth exploring. They know how to recognize opportune moments and pounce on them to make the most of every situation. Success is inevitable for them.

16. They Always Seek to Improve

Perpetual self-improvement is the key towards their ongoing thirst for success. Whatever it is they do, they take pride in getting better and better, from social interactions to mundane tasks. Their pursuit at being the best eventually materializes.

17. They Don’t Take Life Too Seriously

They’re not ones to get offended easily over-analyze or complicate matters. They laugh at their own faults and misfortunes.

18. They Live in the Moment

They don’t live for tomorrow or dwell on what may have happened yesterday. Every day is a new opportunity, a new chapter. They live in the now, and in doing so, get the most out of every moment.

19. They Say Yes

Much more often than they say no. They don’t have to be badgered to go out, don’t shy away from new opportunities or anything that may seem inconvenient.

Advertising

20. They’re Self-Aware

Most important, they’re wholly aware of themselves. They self-reflect and are conscious of their states of mind. If somethings bothering them, they fix it.

We’re all susceptible to feeling down every now and again, but we are all equipped with the necessary solutions that just have to be discovered.

Lack of confidence, inability to feel fulfilled, and susceptibility to stress are all matters that can be controlled through the way we handle our lives and perceive our circumstances.

Final Thoughts

The main philosophy employed by the happiest includes the idea that life’s simply too short: life’s too short to let things get you down, to take things for granted, to pursue absolute and unrealistic perfection.

For some, employing these characteristics is a second nature – they do it without knowing. For others, a conscious effort must be put forth every now and again. Self-Awareness is key.
