Tony Robbins is a best selling author who is well known for the powerful impact he has on helping people change their lives. One of his most famous books is Awaken The Giant Within. We are going to dive into the master system that Tony teaches in this book.
Raise Your Standards
The quote below from Tony Robbins may begin to explain the potency raising your standards holds. What you accept from yourself in small tasks will shift the capacity you are able to achieve in the big tasks as well.
If you sincerely want to change your life: RAISE YOUR STANDARDS. What changes people is when their “SHOULDS” become “MUSTS”.Tony Robbins
When you increase what you demand of yourself you will rewire what you feel you deserve, the quality you give, and step closer to becoming what you are dreaming of.
Change Your Strategy
Successful people are successful because they are doing something right. This does not mean you need to model everything that someone successful in the line of work you want to be in does.
What it does mean is to study and take notes and be open to adjusting your strategy. There is something that works within a successful person’s strategy and it is a great place to look to model after their strategy.
Tony Robbins teaches to not just model what someone successful says but reading between the lines as well if you will. By this, he means what someone credits on television or in an interview may not be the key to their success that you would see if you looked closer at how they have marketed themselves in the past.
Decisions Shape Your Destiny
“Most people overestimate what they can do in a year and they underestimate what they can do in two or three decades.”Tony Robbins
In order to create a big dream or reach a big goal, it starts with the little steps. I’m sure you are familiar with the concept of writing out small steps of a larger plan.
The decision to start, to get out there, to no longer put up with something, or to demand more will work like a ripple throughout your life. It may seem like a small start here, but you cannot build an empire without placing the first brick.
These small decisions shape your destiny and will build the foundation for the big stuff. This gives reason to believe that even your small decisions matter.
Change Your Focus Change Your World
What you focus on will impact your world directly. Tony Robbins gives the example of going to a party. If while you are at the party you focus on a group of people who are bored you may feel the party wasn’t very interesting. If instead, your focus is on two people arguing you may feel drained or think the party was out of hand.
Where you place your focus will determine your experience as well as your mental state. One of the most immediate ways to create a mindshift is simply by changing your focus.
“The number-one fundamental they teach in driving is: Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.”Tony Robbins
Become Intentional With Your Time
Similar to covered before it takes dedication to continue placing the first bricks of a building when you cannot yet see the fruit they can reap. Although you will not get to see these rewards unless you start.
Choosing to get started and to use your time wisely is incredibly important in not only valuing yourself but creating lasting change. When we lower the standards of what we expect from ourselves we also settle for the quality of life we experience along the way.
“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.”Tony Robbins
