Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins Presented by Brian Yablon
Chapter 1: Dreams of Destiny We all want to believe that we have a special gift to make a difference, reach out to others, to repair the world. Oftentimes, this is buried deep within us -- a sleeping giant waiting to be awakened.
Concentration of Power Most of us are unaware of the power we have -- if we can only focus our attention. “Thou shalt not major in minor things.”
How to Create Lasting Change For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.
The Ideas are Simple First: –Raise your standards –Write down all the things you will no longer accept or tolerate in your life. –Write down all the things you aspire to become.
Finding the Right Paddle Next: –Change your limiting beliefs. –Our beliefs are like unquestioned commands, telling us: how things are, what’s possible, and what’s impossible.
Our Belief Systems Our beliefs act as our universal filters. We have to change our belief systems to make lasting change in our lives. We must be certain we can and will meet our new standards before we actually do meet them.
Adapt Finally: –Change your strategy. –Find a role model and copy him/her. –There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. –Do something different.
Take Action Lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough. You must take action.
Mastery The five areas that impact us the most: –Emotional mastery –Physical mastery –Relationship mastery –Financial mastery –Time mastery
Chapter 2: Decisions: The Pathway to Power Write your epitaph! Then work backward: –Ask yourself where you want to be. –Then ask yourself how you will live today in order to reach that imagined future.
The Difficult is Done at Once; the Impossible Takes a Little Longer If we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions -- we are our habits. Everything that happens in our lives begins with a decision.
Decisions vs. Conditions Our destiny is determined by our decisions not the conditions of our lives. You may not be able to control your conditions, but you can control your decisions.
Decisions and Excuses Making true decisions allows you to move beyond excuses and change every part of your life instantly. Your past does not determine your future -- unless you allow it to.
Getting to Where You Want to Go Decide what you want. Take action. Notice what is working and what is not. Change your approach until you reach your goal.
Decisions are NOT Dreams Making a true decision means committing to achieving a result, then cutting yourself off from any other possibility.
Decisions are Power True decisions give us a sense of relief, a sense of clarity, and a sense of power.
Information and Power Information is power only when it is acted upon. Then, repetition becomes skill which becomes habit.
Control Your Destiny The three decisions that control your destiny are: –What you focus on. –What things mean to you. –What you do to create the results you desire.
Do Not Follow the Crowd! Make a plan or you’ll follow the crowd. Plans are based upon decisions. Decisions are based upon: –Your core beliefs –Your life values –Your references –Habitual questions you ask yourself. –Emotional states you experience in each moment.
The Process of Success Success is the result of good judgment. Good judgment is the result of experience. Experience is often the result of bad judgment. Expect to make mistakes on your journey toward success.
Mastery Mastery takes as long as you want it to take. There are no failures in life; there are only results. –If you don’t get the results you want, learn from your experience in order to make better decisions in the future.
Long-Term Focus Most of the challenges we experience come from short-term focus. Success or failure are not overnight experiences.
Spirituality What to do in tough times? Remember that G-d’s delays are not G-d’s denials. No season lasts forever.
Exercising Your Power Remember the power of making decisions. The hardest step to achieving anything is deciding to. Make decisions often, practice them. Learn from your decisions. Stay committed but stay flexible in your approach. Enjoy.
