Tony Robbins Motivational Speeches 2022 – FOCUS ON YOU
if you don't change your physiology you won't get anything so an incantation is the only you speak it but you embody what you're saying with all the intensity you can and you do it with enough repetitions that it sticks in your head like it's a small world now the conversation your head is always the.
Same and it gives you what you want so use your body and your voice so 17 years ago i started doing things i was working for jim rohn this speaker and i was 17 years old i had long hair minestrone soup acne on my face i was trying to call on bear stearns type of people and convince them why they should go to this man's seminar be more.
Successful i was driving 1968 volkswagen that i had earned at 40 a week as a janitor the only way i did it was park far from the building and then go in and i love people i believe that i put myself in state and i was able to influence people that were far more successful than i was at the.
Time i would do something that i still do backstage and have done for 23 years because i don't hope i'm going to be in a good state i demand it so i do an incantation using my whole body i'd say i now command my subconscious mind to direct me in helping as many people's possible life today to better their lives by giving me the strength the.
Emotion the persuasion the humor the brevity whatever it takes to show these people and get these people to change their lives now and i would do that literally driving in my volkswagen to a meeting in l.a on the freeway for 40 minutes people are looking i'm screaming at my lungs they're going i know he's a serial.
Killer i know he is by the time i enter that room when two people meet if there's rapport the person who's most certain will always influence the other person and i was totally certain and they were trying to get revved up to certainty do you agree with this yes or no.
I do another one because i was poor i changed my mindset i kept doing things but i never got beyond it i'd say god's wealth is circulating in my life as well flows to me in avalanches of abundance all my needs desires and goals are met instantaneously by infinite intelligence where i'm one with god and god is everything.
And i would imagine the abundance of my life and i would feel so grateful and a year later i went from making 38 thousand dollars a year to make a million dollars a year in one year how do you get better how do you know listen i was good today but i want to be great what are the metrics you use i mean is there data you get back how do.
You improve well we have all the social media data which we we uh use big data to take a look at but i also look at it individually because there's nuances that you pick up in that way so i feed that look at that but my biggest piece is watching the audience and then you know every day in my life i get feedback i'm walking down the street a dozen.
People come and tell me these beautiful stories now the life has changed and very much like like she shared earlier they'll give me way too much credit so i always straight around go look you did this i'm glad i got the help um and i try to keep that balance with everybody but my measurement is both emotional state impact as well as execution did.
They lose 20 pounds did they go turn their business around you know my business is organized around i really want to help people improve all the quality areas of their life but there's about seven that matter the most it's your body it's your emotions it's your relationships it's the way you manage time its finances it's your work and.
It's the spiritual side of life and so what i set my life doing is modeling people that are the best world you find a couple have been together for 65 years in their 80s late 80s and they're still making love and passionate not just hanging out they're not lucky they're doing something different so i'm constantly.
Finding those patterns so that hopefully i can compress decades into days i can learn from those decades of life experience say that bring the answer here to myself and others and see a measurable impact i've always been um the the type of person who uh.
Thought of i thought of myself as resilient you know that i could always make my way back being stuck in the past is a it makes it extremely difficult to to find your way out and future thinking for me has always been the way to get over difficult times to.
Be able to look over the darkness to a potential time of light very rarely do i look backwards i'm always uh looking forward when i was 25 or so i probably weighed about 138 pounds i smoked like pack cigarettes day i drank tremendous amount of alcohol i was from.
Northern alberta this rough little town up in northern alberta called fairview and you know there were long winters there and my friends were heavy drinkers and most of them dropped out of school by the time they were 15 or 16 went off to work on oil rigs and you know it was a rough town and we drank a lot i started when i was 14 and you know um.
And so i was i had a lot of bad habits let's say and uh things that were and i wasn't in great shape physically and i was also still intellectually obsessed by as i am now and uh so that would have been that would have been in 85 but when i but i decided.
Around that about 85 84 something like that maybe a little earlier that i was really going to try to get my act together and so i started doing that i you know i first of all i i quit smoking oh that took a long time because i eventually had to quit drinking too in order to quit smoking.
And i started working out starting playing sports which i'd never done i had a fine time when i was a kid and but uh i needed really to get disciplined and i had to do it because i was working on these hard problems that you know that i've been discussing with all of you and i've been working on.
Them really you know obsessively since i was probably about 18 maybe even earlier than that got to the point around 25 when i was in graduate school trying to get my phds doing all my research like i published 15 papers by the time i graduated with my phd which was by i think by a fairly.
Large measure the most papers that any un graduate student at that time had ever published at mcgill i think that's right might have been twice as many or maybe twice as many maybe even three times as many and at the same time i wrote maps of meaning which was a terrible terrible terribly difficult thing to do because i.
Was writing about three hours a day doing that and i couldn't do all that and continue with my misbehavior you know my sort of my what would you say my my my hedonistic my hedonistic my massive hedonistic consumption of.
Alcohol and all of that i just couldn't keep it up and also work seriously on the issues that were at hand so you know i had to stop that's a sacrifice i had to stop messing about and straighten myself out what are your thoughts on changing reality with thoughts and repetitions will this work or is it just a theory.
Okay so there's no doubt that the way that the brain rewires itself is through repetition neurons that fire together wire together so you very much can create reality i want to say that it isn't unfortunately like the matrix but it's so close that you might as well think of it like that but to me that's just a metaphor to get people to.
Understand that you really can influence your your hard wiring in your own brain and you certainly can influence the outside world by gaining a set of skills that allow you to go out and manipulate it and i'll give you a super easy example learning to build a house means you can actually build a house and you can.
Manifest that and turn a tree or concrete into a physical structure so you can definitely have that kind of influence you can obviously influence other people by learning about psychology um so all of these things are are very very possible you need to bet on your strengths and don't give a about what you suck at.
You're gonna way too many people in this room are gonna spend the next 30 40 years of their lives trying to check the boxes of the things that they're not as good at and that you're going to waste a load of time and lose i highly recommend auditing yourself or if you have no empathy or eq or self-awareness then.
Find somebody in your family or friendship that does and let them tell you who you are and once you believe that either for yourself or someone do house told you go directly all chips all.
Into that because that is the only possible way in my opinion watching from the outside that is let me rephrase that is a very highly likely way of over indexing because the truth is if you want to be an anomaly you've got to act like one you know like and so that's it that's what i got so.
Thanks for having me how important is rest and how much do you get of it i'm trying hard at the moment to pursue my dreams but sometimes i feel out of balance because i lack sleep for example alright boys and girls i'm telling you i'm just gonna be super arrogant for a second i built a billion dollar business without.
Setting an alarm prioritize sleep i work a lot in fact i'll take the pepsi challenge anybody that wants to go head to toe with me in terms of what you get done not just raw number of hours aimed at a computer or whatever it is that you're supposed to be doing and performing totally sub-optimally i'll.
Just take the pepsi challenge on that i always prioritize sleep i always prioritize my psychological optimization so for instance if i'm working around the clock if this happened not too long ago i was just working so many hours and it ended up encompassing too many things that took more energy than they were giving that i started to feel um.
Anxious isn't in fact i started to feel claustrophobic that's exactly how i felt i wanted to crawl out of my own skin i don't know how to explain it it's just like ah it was driving me nuts and i realized i need to chill for a minute i need to meditate i need to take an hour and go do something that's still moving me towards my dreams because.
That's my thing but that i really enjoy and so maybe in those moments i go read a comic because we're building a comic book publishing empire so that's part of what i need to do anyway but reading the comic is fun i also need to meditate and just literally breathe from my diaphragm so get the sleep that you need that's super.
Critical you do not need to set an alarm sleep as much as you need to and by the way if you're doing things that are exciting to you you're i know people some of you are going to believe me because i hopefully i've earned the credibility with you up to this point and some of you are going to call total bullsh you can ask my wife i can set an.
Internal alarm clock in my mind only if i'm excited about um something or really stressed out but that's a whole other thing which i try hardly to do ever but when i'm really excited about something i can set an.
Internal alarm clock this morning i told myself wake up at 4 15. what time did i wake up boys and girls not 4 14 not 4 16 i woke up at 4 15 because that was the time that i told myself to wake up i can usually get within five minutes of what time i tell myself to wake up it doesn't always work and if i'm tired i.
Don't give myself that edict i tell myself to sleep as much as i need but when i'm really excited about something there's something i want to get up and work on and i'm afraid there just won't be enough time and it's a reasonable amount of sleep i'll say anything north of five hours i can usually get myself to just wake up.
So get the sleep prioritize cognitive optimization because then you're efficient and efficiency is the name of the game so sleep sleep sleep i'm not a guy proposing um the you know set your alarm get up at 4am no matter what it's not me go to bed early get your sleep.
Meditate get in a good peaceful calm creative state so that you can really crush it
