I’ve just returned home from watching Tony Robbins at Go Pro Marketing! Such great energy! Although I had to leave early to come home to my children, I thought I would share some of the nuggets from tonight’s event.
One of the messages I keep hearing over and over and over again (so it must be true, right? Or I must really need to hear it!) is about our greatest ability as humans:
Controlling our thoughts is EVERYTHING!!
We need to strive for the mastery of our own mental and emotional state.
Eighty percent of success is psychology; 20% is mechanics.
Charisma is energy.
And I really LOVED this: PERFECT is the lowest standard in the world because we suffer so much striving for something that is unattainable.
The secret to living is giving.
If you’re going through Hell, keep going!
Life isn’t happening to you – it’s happening FOR you!
Plant and give when you have nothing to give.
If I’m sad, angry, etc. it is me. TAKE CONTROL!
Mastering your ability to change your own state as well as others’ – move to change your state. Failure due to lack of resourcefulness.
People suffer floods, tornadoes, etc. sometimes in the same location every three years!!! Why? Wouldn’t you move? “But it’s home.”
Pain is something to use.
Which positive words/feelings can I use to overcome and completely wipe out the negative words/feelings I use?
The language we use affects us and others – bum vs. ass vs. butt or cock vs. penis, etc.
Courage unused shrinks.
I am courage! I am faith!
Passion you don’t express becomes weak.
Guilt and depression are selfish – no longer have radiance for others, life.
Whatever you focus on you’re going to feel.
Controlling our focus is the single most important thing in life.
Move states – divorce bad emotions.
So in essence, HUMAN EMOTION is the greatest form of capital in the world.
