Awaken The Giant Within by Tony Robbins

There’s lots of value packed into this book, I’m going to keep this post as short as possible so I will jump right in;

  • Know that it is your decisions and not your conditions that determine your destiny.
  • It is not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what these events mean.
  • All personal breakthroughs begin with a change in beliefs. The most effective way is to get the brain to associate massive pain to the old belief.
  • If we are to change quickly we must hold two beliefs;
  1. that we can change now
  2. we’re responsible for our own change, not anyone else.
  • To create long-term change we must have 3 beliefs on responsibility;
  1. first we must believe “Something must change” not should or could, but must.
  2. we must believe “I must change it”
  3. “I can change it”
  • Link pleasure to any behaviour you want to repeat
  • The key to success is to create patterns of movement that create confidence, a sense of strength, flexibility, a sense of personal power and fun.
  • Getting old is not a matter of age, it’s a lack of movement. And the ultimate lack of movement is death.
  • Successful people asked better questions, and as a result got better answers.
  • Change your state by asking the following 5 questions;
  1. What is great about this problem?
  2. What is not perfect yet?
  3. What am I willing to do to make it the way I want it?
  4. What am no longer willing to do in order to make it the way I want it?
  5. How can I enjoy the process?
  • The words you habitually choose also affect how you communicate with yourself and therefore what you experience.
  • Words shape our beliefs and impact our actions.
  • By adopting some else habitual vocabulary, you begin to adopt their emotional patterns.
  • A whole set of rules, ideas and preconceived emotions accompany any metaphor you adopt.
  • The emotions you once thought of as negative are merely calls to action.
  • 6 steps to emotional mastery;
  1. Identify what you’re really feeling
  2. Acknowledge and appreciate your emotions knowing they support you.
  3. Get  curious about the message the emotion is offering you.
  4. Get confident
  5. Get certain you can handle this not only today, but in the future as well.
  6. Get excited and take action.
  • Sometimes we need to trust that our disappointments may truly be opportunities in disguise.
  • As long as we structure our lives in a way where our happiness is dependent upon something we cannot control, then we will experience pain.
  • Procrastination – instead of saying “I should start this project” say, ” I must finish this project”. Change your shoulds to musts.
  • “A man’s mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to it’s original dimensions” – Oliver Wendel Holmes
  • Loss is imaginary. Nothing ever disappears in the universe, it only changes form.
  • The key to wealth is to be more valuable.
  • Most important way to expand your income is to devise a way to consistently add value to peoples lives, and you will prosper.
  • The true purpose of any cooperation is to create products and services that increase the quality of life for all the customers they serve.
  • Donating/giving money away convinces your brain you have more money than you need/an abundance of money.

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker

Another great book and another on the subject of wealth. I’m probably reading money books at the minute because I have no income. This is a classic, it’s the first time I’ve read Secrets of the Millionaire Mind however I have listen the audio-book and that is equally as good!.

Here’s the value I found, hope you find it useful;

  • Thoughts lead to feelings; Feelings lead to actions; Actions lead to results
  • We are conditioned in 3 primary ways;
  1. Verbal programming – what did you hear when you were growing up?
  2. Modelling – What did you see when you were young?
  3. Specific incidents – What did you experience when you were young?
  • When the subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic. Emotions will almost always win.
  • Rich people believe “I create my life”. Poor people believe “life happens to me”.
  • Rich people play the money game to win. Poor people play the money game to not loose.
  • Rich people are committed to being rich. Poor people want to be rich.
  • Rich people think big. Poor people think small.
  • Rich people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles.
  • Rich people admire other rich and successful people. Poor people resent rich and successful people.
  • Rich people associate with positive, successful people. Poor people associate with negative, unsuccessful people.
  • Rich people are willing to promote themselves and their value. Poor people think negatively about selling and promoting.
  • Rich people are bigger than their problems. Poor people are smaller than their problems.
  • Rich people are excellent receivers. Poor people are poor receivers.

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Orange Juice

Life throws many obstacles and curve balls at us, that we have no control over. However, it’s not what happens to us that will determine our future, but what we do about what happens to us – how we react is the most important action.

Reacting to situations the way we’ve always done will get the same results we’ve always had. If we want different results, we must change how we act.

Pick someone who you aspire to become – a role model – and study how they would act. Mirror them, become them.

Be careful when picking your role model; my top tip is to go for someone who has achieved exactly what you want to do and nothing less!

failure blog post

Are you a failure? 

I fail every day. Most of time it’s small things – tying my shoelace, not saying sorry quick enough, leaving Windows mucky.

Every now and again I’ll fail big time – buying an unprofitable business for £50,000 without having any knowledge of the service being offered. Big boo boo!

I believe failure is an important part of success.

Why failure is important!

Most believe failure is something scary that should be avoided all costs. Some people dodge taking risks altogether to reduce their exposure to failure – I know I was brought up by two.

In order to succeed and realise your goal, you are going have to take calculated risks at the very least.

Taking risks stretches our comfort zone until it expands to a point where we are comfortable with the action we are taking. To put it simply taking risk forces us to grow.

Occasionally the calculated risks will not work out and failure occurs. This is when we learn the most. Failure gives us experience, if the same situation occurs again we can handle it better.

Sit back, relax and enjoy

Take a look at the video below. It was sent to me by my sister Amy. It describes failure perfectly.

Watch Me!!
