9 INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES BY TONY ROBBINS
Tony Robbins' quotes are wonderful “tools” full of wisdom; an inspirational & motivational charge that pushes us to keep going, despite the difficulties, despite the curveballs that life throws at us.
If you lack the inspiration to take action leading to the goals you have set for yourself, just read one of his books or simply some of Tony’s best inspirational quotes and witness how your state changes and with it your clarity to what to do next.
These phrases help you achieve your goals and make important decisions along your journey of personal development and achievements.
If you want to grow, if you want to change (for the better), if you want to improve in many areas of your life, then take a look at his works, best quotes, and above all, dig deeper into the topic of personal development.
Considering that Tony has impacted the lives of millions of people, let the following quotes inspire us to live a fulfilling life.
“PEOPLE ARE NOT LAZY. THEY SIMPLY HAVE IMPOTENT GOALS – THAT IS, GOALS THAT DO NOT INSPIRE THEM”
Most of the time we underestimate ourselves. We attribute our inability to achieve goals to laziness, but is that always the case?
Generally what actually blocks us is getting the wrong goal or being afraid to reach it.
Let’s set up the kind of goals that excites us, something for which we can’t wait to jump out of bed.
Once identified, let’s fight to achieve it, despite the uncertainty and obstacles along the way.
At the end of the day, everything worthy in this world requires effort to be achieved.
“THE PATH TO SUCCESS IS TO TAKE MASSIVE, DETERMINED ACTION”
Action is the key to anything. Words matter and positive self-talk is really important, as well as setting goals, but if you want to move the needle toward success and fulfillment, then you have to do something about it.
When you take massive action you honor your commitment to yourself and your goal and keep going no matter what.
Taking massive action is not a one-time thing.
It’s something that you must do consistently and persistently with progressively increased levels of activity, desire, and effort.
When you fail, or something doesn’t work out, it’s not a problem, it’s just part of the process.
Try, fall down, fail, try again.
This practice will help you build both resilience and confidence.
The best thing is that massive action eliminates failure as an option – you’re either succeeding or learning.
“CHANGE YOUR STATE, CHANGE YOUR LIFE”
Although many of us mistakenly think that emotions happen to us, emotions are actually the product of our mental-emotional-physiological state.
Our mental-emotional-physiological state is determined by how we position our body (our physiology) and what we choose to focus on.
This is the basis of Tony Robbins’ change-your-state method.
Learning how to control our focus and physiology empowers us to manage our state, which enables us to feel whatever emotions we want, whenever we want.
Since our emotions impact our actions, controlling our emotional state empowers us to promote the massive action we need to take to achieve our goals and live our best life.
Observe your posture when you are happy, as opposed to when you are sad or observe a depressed person and a happy one.
There’s a difference, right?
We all get in negative psychological and emotional states, but we can transform our state of mind by changing our bodies and getting into an empowering state.
Your body language sends signals to your brain about how you’re feeling and operating.
If you have poor posture, it only lends itself to poor emotions or a negative state.
On the contrary, empowering posture and alertness produce a more positive state resulting in a change in mood.
What do you choose to focus on?
Remember that our mind has the tendency to look for the bad – to fight or flight, as it’s been doing for two million years.
But we can retrain it to look for the good.
From moment to moment our state determines the kind of actions we are going to take.
So let’s regularly check throughout the day what state we are tuned to - positive or negative, disempowering or empowering.
In Tony’s words, “When you’re in control of your state of mind, you’re the master of your emotions and you understand that life is happening for you, not to you. When you change your state, you change your life”.
“IF YOU WANT TO BE SUCCESSFUL, FIND SOMEONE WHO HAS ACHIEVED THE RESULTS YOU WANT AND COPY WHAT THEY DO AND YOU’LL ACHIEVE THE SAME RESULTS”
Success leaves clues!
If someone is successful not once but consistently they're not lucky, they're not better than you are, and they're not smarter. Yet, they have a working strategy.
There's something they do differently.
If you take the same steps if you take the same actions and you sow the same seeds you could reap the same rewards.
Why should you choose the trial and error approach when you can find someone successful - in whatever you are trying to achieve - who would spare you an awful lot of time and mistakes?
So, when you ask for help or advice, make sure you go to people who have already experienced success, they have the answers you are looking for, the pathway to the results you are aiming at.
Would you ask an obese doctor for advice concerning your general well-being?
“IT IS NOT WHAT WE GET. BUT WHO WE BECOME, WHAT WE CONTRIBUTE…THAT GIVES MEANING TO OUR LIVES”
Sure, most of us like to get tangible rewards - money, certificates, prizes, and so on - for our hard work. However, they really are not the point.
What really matters is who we become in the pursuit of our goals thanks to our effort.
This is the greatest mission each of us should have, i.e. becoming the best version of ourselves so that we can impact other people’s lives too.
Let’s not get caught up in what we can get by pursuing our goals, let’s focus on the person we can become instead.
“LIFE IS A GIFT, AND IT OFFERS US THE PRIVILEGE, OPPORTUNITY, AND RESPONSIBILITY TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK BY BECOMING MORE”
Life is something we should be grateful for.
None of us knows how long we will be here for.
Think of it as an opportunity to leave your mark.
Be an inspiration for others!
Ask yourself, “What simple action can I take today to make someone’s day”?
“YOUR PAST DOES NOT EQUAL YOUR FUTURE”
Just because we failed yesterday or today, it doesn't mean we will fail tomorrow.
All that matters is what we will do with what we have experienced so far.
Hopefully, we have been learning from our past mistakes and these will enable us to make better decisions from now on.
Walt Disney’s idea for Mickey Mouse and the theme parks was rejected by financiers over 300 times.
Stephen King’s Carrie was rejected by publishers more than 30 times.
Oprah Winfrey was first told that she was simply unfit for television.
They didn’t give up and neither should you!
“THE ONLY PEOPLE WITHOUT PROBLEMS ARE THOSE IN CEMETERIES”
The neighbor’s grass is always greener, right?
If you're reading this post right now, it’s because you have access to the internet; you're blessed and have no excuse to complain.
Compared to many other people on this planet you are doing ridiculously well.
Two-thirds of the planet lives on less than $2.50 a day... you have no excuse.
You’d better become aware then that there is someone else who envies your shape, your car, the place you live in, and the lifestyle you have.
Your worst nightmare is someone else’s dream!
We tend to compare ourselves to others and come to the conclusion that their lives are perfect.
We each have our own problems.
Some are more serious, some less, but still problems.
Don't believe in everything that appears on social networks.
Even the richest and most powerful and successful celebrities have their own tough nuts to crack.
Remember that every problem is a gift, an opportunity to grow and become better.
“THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE IS THE QUALITY OF YOUR RELATIONSHIPS”
Our happiness and general well-being are greatly influenced by the people around us.
If the people who are part of our lives are worth sticking to, we can notice it immediately.
When someone makes us happy, they bring happiness to every aspect of our life.
These kinds of people are like batteries, i.e. we feel charged whenever we are around them or even simply when we speak to them on the phone.
They inspire us to do better and become better.
Conversely, negative companions pull us down and make us sad, frustrated, and irritable.
They get in the way of our personal development and achievements.
There is only one life, so let's try to share it with those who make us feel good and bring the best out of ourselves.
Everyone else is worthless.
