A timeless classic. One of Tony Robbins’ earliest manuscripts I believe this to be the foundation of modern self help teachings. It’s based on NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming, and builds on this with Tony’s own freshly termed form of curative therapy Neuro Associative Conditioning. NAC is based on some simple steps.
- Decide what you really want and what’s preventing you from having it now. Get leverage on yourself. Associate massive pain to not changing and massive pleasure with the experience of changing right now. Change is not a question of capability but a question of motivation.
- Interrupt the limiting pattern. Scramble bad memories. Create a new empowering alternative
- Reward yourself with Short term goals. Not an emotional connection. An emotional. A neurological one. Create new patterns.
He starts by teaching us about the power of decision. How we need to take control and learn how to ‘flex the decision muscle’. Observe and learn from wrong or right decisions and modify future/current decision making accordingly. He enthuses how commitment to decision and really, really, really owning your decisions give your life transformational power and clarity.
Fundamentally, Tony teaches that there are 3 decisions which control your destiny and that you should never leave up to extrinsic circumstances as it’s up to you to avoid an unconscious life, to ensure you’re not swept up with the river and dragged along with a current that is not of your choosing. The 3 decisions are:-
What should I focus on in each moment that I’m Alive
What things mean to me? Is it. Good or bad?
What should I do now?
And obviously for this to be the ultimate success formula these decisions should align wholly with what you reall want and are 100% committed to so you then do indeed take action with gusto.
“A truly committed decision is the force that changes your life. Decisions equal empowerment.”
This is a classic and wherever you are on your growth journey I recommend buying this today.
