Recognize patterns


What you do every day creates a system or map that makes your day manageable.  It sustains or creates a pattern.  Have you ever met someone who can crack a joke out of anything? Or maybe hum a tune about everything happening?  Or someone who almost always found a way to gossip about other people’s lives?  These patterns lives define your “state” and Tony Robbins said that it is based on three critical things:  1) target -what is it do you want 2) belief system/map -how are you going to get it and 3) fuel – the reason you do what you do.

Recognizing patterns allow you to accept yourself and work out which unhealthy patterns to break.

Do you see patterns in your life?  Maybe by chance falling in love with the “wrong person”?  Or hopping from one job to another after a few months?  Are there patterns you need to change or are there ones that shall eventually be the fuel to you changing for a better you?

Conquer your fear and free yourself from your limiting beliefs


Tony Robbins shared that if you tie a rope on a baby elephant’s head, the baby elephant would grow up thinking that a pole is enough to stop him from moving.  It would stop trying.  This belief limits itself to being free.

How often do you allow your beliefs to stop you from achieving more?  Not pursuing art, singing or music because somebody once told you you’re not good enough.  Not learning another language because you were told it would be pointless.  Not changing because it simply would not work.

Fear paralyzes you and prevents you from being successful.  The beliefs fuel your limitations rather than inspire you to action.

What are your limiting beliefs?  What makes it seemingly impossible to complete a goal?  What are your fears?  What prevents you from being free?

Take control of your own mind.

Tony Robbins said, “Decision is the ultimate power.”  The mind is wired into everything that one does.  When you say, “I can’t do it,” it’s a decision.  When you tell yourself, “I’m no good,” it’s a decision.  When you listen to others and let them have a say in your life, it’s a decision.  When you abstain and not do anything, it’s a decision.

There are three things to consider when making a decision:

1) Focus – What is it that I want?  What are controllable?

2) Meaning – What is its purpose? What are the feelings involved?

3) Action – What am I going to do? What are the next steps?

The important element in decision-making is the time involved from the time a decision is made and a person initiates change and action.  As an example, Tony said on one of his videos, if you wanna lose weight and you tell me, you’ll have an 8-week plan, talk to your fitness instructor, nutritionist and plan out your schedule, he’ll tell you one thing – “Run!!!”  How to do it is a process.  What’s critical is to take action – to own that decision, to take control of the situation.  One should not get stuck in thinking but rather take control of one’s mind and move towards the target.  When you start moving towards your goal – your brain picks up and coordinates all to keep you on track.  When you feel off or out of sync, re-do.  Refocus and align your perspective  Choose to be who you are every day.  Choose to do the right thing.  Choose to be happy.  Choose to be a good leader.

What roadblocks do you get when making a decision?  What prevents you from taking action? What decisions have you made that created a huge impact in your life?  What decisions have you made that you thought weren’t decisions because of your inaction?  What action will you take as regards these decisions?
