Unleash the power: how now will shape your destiny
Tony Robins starts the book with his well know thanks Giving story , which happened many years back, when a stranger made a huge impact on people in need. After being astonished the some people do care, he decided to turn his life around . He understood that the bottom line is to give back in order to improve your life. It is all about putting the past aside, and making decision now, as only they will shape your destiny. Everything starts with beliefs as they are the key to unleash the power that is hidden in all of us. Backed with your beliefs you will then need to start focusing only on solutions.
The 11 lessons to quickly and simply take charge of your life
Notes from a Friend covers 11 lessons that when implemented (and not only read) will guarantee you to change your life around.
- How to turn you life around when you feel overwhelmed? First, one need to understand that the past doesn’t equate the future. What you do now will change everything. Therefore you need to start adding value to people and give back as much as you can. Don’t wait until your rich, successful…just do it now.
- There are no failures only results. Therefore if you are not experiencing the right results, you simply need to change your actions. Tweaking them until you get the results you want.
- Decisions are the base of becoming unstoppable. Make a decision now, take action, monitor your results and tweak your decision. A good example of this is the story of Mr. Honda, the man behind the now famous worldwide car empire.
- Change your beliefs about yourself and you will change your actions
- You become what you focus on. What you focus on become your reality. Make sure you have your eyes on the right ball. On the goals you want to achieve.
- Questions are the answers. You need to ask the right questions in order get the right answers. Those questions should focus on your goals, solutions and not on the actual problems.
- To be in your greatest state you will need to physically play the part. Motion creates emotions. Your posture, the way you walk, the way you talk will make a huge impact on you state.
- Choose you words carefully as they will become a part of you. Use only words with a strong positive connotation.
- Choose your metaphors carefully as they will shape your destiny.
- What would you do if you cannot fail? These should be your goals. Don’t limit yourself. Then the harder you prepare to reach those goals the luckier you will become.
- Finally the last lesson of the book is a hands on implementation of the other lessons with the 10 days mental challenge. The idea is to focus only on the positive and solutions. If you dwell into negative more than 5 minutes during the day, then you will need to start the 10 days challenge again the following morning. If you manage to complete this you will have so much more control over your thoughts and your life.
