Tony Robbins’ Awaken the Giant Within, is an inspirational book that makes you realize that you can achieve whatever you want. The book provides various guidelines that will enable you to take control of all aspects of your life including your emotions, finances, and relationships.
It’s one of the best personal development books, and reading it will make you set big goals and go for them. Here are a few lessons from the book that I would love to share with you.
1.Everyone is Unique
Tony Robbins believes that every single one of us came here to contribute something special because we all have unique gifts. These gifts lie within us, and we can awaken them if we want to. Besides this, he trusts that The Creator often provides us with opportunities that can help us exploit these gifts.
2. How to Create Long Lasting Change
Raise your standards – Pinpoint the things in your life that you will no longer accept, and identify what you want to become
Change your limiting beliefs – Eliminate your limiting beliefs and create an empowering belief system
Change your strategy – Adopt the best strategies that will guarantee results.
3.The Three Main Decisions that Affect your Destiny
- The decisions about the things you concentrate on
- The decisions concerning the things that matter to you.
- The decisions concerning what to do to create the future you want
4. To Succeed, you Must Focus on the Long-Term
According to Tony Robbins, many people give up on their dreams because they focus on the short-term: they want to achieve overnight success. Little do they know that focusing on the long-term enables one to persevere hence increasing the chances of success.
Those who succeed take massive action today and expect their efforts to reap results after a long period.
5. You Attract Success By Modelling The Lives of Successful People
The surest way to achieve success is by doing what successful people did. You must, therefore, pinpoint a successful individual in your field and identify what makes him or her a success. Copy the beliefs, strategies, and behaviors you think made the person successful, and soon you will also succeed.
6.How to Change a Bad Habit and Adopt a New One
Most of us have given up changing bad habits because we often fall back to them no matter how hard we try to change.
The best way to change a bad habit, according to Tony Robbins, is to associate bad things with the poor habit and good things with a new one. For instance, if you are a smoker, associate your smoking habits with hazardous diseases such as tuberculosis, and think about how much money you will save and how healthy you’ll become if you quit smoking.
7. Your Brain Has The Answers to All Your Questions
Your brain has answers to all your questions, and for this reason, you must practice asking it questions. It might not provide an answer immediately, but with patience and persistence, it will eventually provide you the right answer.
In the book, Tony Robbins narrates a story of a man who managed to escape The Nazi Concentration Camps because he constantly asked himself how he would escape. After asking himself questions for a while, he finally realized that he could escape by hiding in rotten bodies that the Germans dumped in an open grave.
8. Learn to Use Your Emotions
Learn to make your emotions work for you. For this reason, never suppress or ignore your emotions. Instead, check what they are trying to tell you. According to Tony Robbins, both negative and positive emotions can help you know the actions you must take to reach your goals.
9. A Different Method for Creating Long-Lasting Change
Make the need to change a ‘MUST,’ not a ‘should’ or a ‘could’, because you will commit to changing, if the need becomes a ‘MUST.’
Secondly, realize that you are responsible for making the change and things will not change if you don’t change.
Thirdly, believe you can bring the change you want.
