Use Your Body
We have learned our emotions can directly impact our body from research on the negative effects of overproduced stress hormones. Tony Robbins teaches that our bodies will actually directly impact our emotions as well.
When using our physical body such as our breath, posture, or voice we can generate a certain emotional response within us and radically alter our mental state. This has to power to help up mind shift to where we would like to be.
Direct Your Focus
To break down what Tony Robbins means when he says, “energy flows where attention goes” your attention is powerful. Through the law of attraction, you begin attracting more of what you place your focus on.
Our body actually will directly respond to what we place our focus on. Tony Robbins gives the example if you’ve ever had a massive headache or intense pain and something like an important task demanded your full attention and after completing this task you find your pain is completely gone.
The body will follow the focus of the mind and will affect how you feel. It has been proven that our brain actually cannot multi-task, instead, it is rapidly switching back and forth between objects or tasks.
This means our brain cannot take in a picture as a whole and will delete or skip the information it is not able to register.
Then when we decide on our opinion of reality, an experience, or even our capability we believe it to be all-encompassing and accurate when in fact it is only a portion.
With this focus of ours being singular and commonly zoomed in we can begin to use this to our advantage by creating a mind shift from where we place our focus. This, in turn, will generate a result
