Are you a fan of Tony Robbins? If you are then you will relate to these lessons I am about to share. I am a big fan of Tony and his works. Here are the lessons that I learned:
#1. Trade your expectation for appreciation.
I don’t know about you but for me, I like setting goal and achieving it. You can call it the “achiever mindset”. The problem with this, in my opinion, is when you achieve your goal, you always look for the next level. You spend little time to celebrate or appreciate it.
My happiness was depended on the achievement of my goal. When I get the outcome I want, I am a happy person, but when I don’t, I’m very upset. The worse thing is that even when I achieve my goal and be happy, that happiness didn’t last long. Then I find myself being bored and find something else to go after again.
“Trade your expectations for appreciation and your whole world changes in an instant.” – Tony Robbins.
#2. The six human needs
I learned about this at Date With Destiny event. Everything we do and every decision we make is to meet one or more of our six human needs. If you don’t know about the 6 human needs yet, watch this video here:
- Certainty – Feeling of assurance that you can avoid pain and gain pleasure
- Uncertainty/Variety—the need for the change/surprise/difference
- Significance—feeling important and special or unique
- Connection/Love—you probably know what this means.
- Growth—as we all know, if you’re not growing you’re dying.
- Contribution—a sense that we make a difference in someone’s life. As we all know, life is not about “me”, it’s about “we”
Out of the six human needs, I value significance and growth most. This is probably the reason why I’m being hard on myself and not allowing myself to be happy. But I learn to change it. What about you? Which one of the six do you value the most?
#3. Change your story
We all have our own stories about all areas of life, whether it be finance, relationship, health, fitness etc… The question is whether our story empowers us to get what we want or destroys our chance of having success. Most of the time, we are unaware of our stories and patterns and we let them dictate our future. Let’s say you want to achieve financial freedom, then you ask yourself why you haven’t achieved it yet, your answer to this question is the story you keep on telling yourself.
Find out what your story is and decide if you need to change it. Some people just don’t want to let go of their story, even though it doesn’t support them. If your story doesn’t serve you, make a decision today that you will change your story.
‘It is your decisions, and not your conditions, that determine your destiny.’ – Tony Robbins
