When Tony Robbins first started helping people, he didn’t realize the true potential of what he was doing. When he started reaching more and more people.
Literally, by observing and influencing millions of people, he began to see patterns of what made some people successful and others don’t. And that information, that clarity, was mutch more valuable than anything else he had done so far. It gave him the power of knowing, with certainty, what really made a difference in people’s lives.
He found out that there are three decisions we continually make that determine the quality of our lives. If we make them unconsciously, we will end up miserably like most people. But if we make them consciously we can tap success beyond our wildest imagination.
Decision 1: Carefully choose what to focus on.
At every moment, millions of things compete for your attention. You can focus on things that are happening right here and now or on what you want to create in the future. Or you can focus on the past.
Where focus goes, energy flows. What you focus on and your pattern for doing so shapes your entire life.
Decision 2: Figure out, What does this all mean?
Ultimately, how you feel about your life has nothing to do with the events in it or with your financial condition or what has (or hasn’t) happened to you. The quality of your life is controlled by the meaning you give these things.
Most of the time you may be unaware of the effect of your unconscious mind in assigning meaning to life’s events.
Decision 3: What will you do?
The actions you take are powerfully shaped by the emotional state you’re in. If you’re angry, you’re going to behave quite differently than if you’re feeling playful or outrageous.
If you want to shape your actions, the fastest way is to change what you focus on and shift the meaning to be something more empowering.
