TR_Beliefs1This week we have been covering the power of beliefs in our Daily Positive Points emails.  I thought it would be a good idea to share with you some of my most powerful Tony Robbins quotes on beliefs. Most are from his book I am reading, Unlimited Power but also from his new book, MONEY Master the Game.

Enjoy!
With Peace and Gratitude,
Bill

“The best strategy to get around your belief system is to develop a new belief!”
“Beliefs are the compass and maps that guide us toward our goals and give us surety to know we’ll get there.”
“Without beliefs or the ability to tap into them, people can be totally disempowered.”
Why are beliefs so important? @tonyrobbins says it best: “Beliefs can turn on or shut off the flow of ideas.”
“Belief is nothing but a state, an internal representation that governs behavior”
“It [beliefs] can be an empowering belief in possibility-a belief that we will succeed in something or achieve something else.”
“It [beliefs] can be a disempowering belief-a belief that we can’t succeed, that our limitations are clear, intractable and overwhelming.”
“If you believe in success, you’ll be empowered to achieve it.”
“The birth of excellence begins with our awareness that our beliefs are a choice.”
“You can choose beliefs that limit you, or you can choose beliefs that support you. The trick is to choose from beliefs that are conducive to success and the results you want and to discard the ones that hold you back.”
“Belief is the doorway to excellence precisely because there’s nothing divorced or static about it.”
“It is our belief that determines how much of our potential we’ll be able to tap.
“…there’s no more powerful directing force in the human behavior than belief.”
“…human history is the history of human belief.”
“The people who have changed history – whether Christ, Mohammed, Copernicus, Columbus, Edision, or Einstein – have been the people who have changed our own beliefs.”
“To change our own behaviors, we have to start with our own beliefs.”
“If we want to model excellence, we need to learn to model the beliefs of those who have achieved excellence.”
“…even at the level of physiology, beliefs (congruent internal representations) control reality.”

DissatisfactionAs much as I do not want to say this, sometimes being frustrated, angry and “fed up” is the perfect emotion to get you off your rump and do something. Just remember that it is our emotions that are our indicators to determine our next steps.

“Dissatisfaction is a great starting point, for it is right there that we have the most power, strength, and energy to push change through.” ~David DeNotaris

Fear Emerson

Today’s Message

Have you ever heard the saying, “Fake it until you make it?” Well, it’s time to get really enthusiastic about something. The first place to start is to look for how you can help others and that will change your state instantly. Click here to check out Friday’s awesome video.

Today’s AFFIRMATION

 I AM a shining example of enthusiasm.  The best part is that I share my enthusiasm with everyone I meet today.

Today’s Quote

“Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic” Dale Carnegie

Below are a few of my favorite Tony Robbins Quotes.  Using these quotes and others that he has delivered help me to stay on the track to achieving my goals.  Thank you Tony!

“All personal breakthroughs begin with a change in beliefs.”

“When you are grateful fear disappears and abundance appears.”

“Determination is the wake-up call to the human will.”

“Questions provide the key to unlocking our unlimited potential.”

“Commit to CANI! – Constant And Never-ending Improvement.”

We will act consistently with our view of who we truly are, whether that view is accurate or not.

“The more rules you have about how people have to be, how life has to be for you to be happy, the less happy you’re going to be.”

“People are bigger than anything that can happen to them.”

“The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results.”

“You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.”

“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.”

“If you are truly flexible and go until . . . there is really very little you can’t accomplish in your lifetime.”

“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”

Today’s Message

Making mistakes is inevitable. Quitting, though, is optional.

Today’s CHALLENGE

Research any famous person today. Notice the struggles they faced at some point in their lives

Today’s Quote

“It is necessary for us to learn from other’s mistakes. You will not live long enough to make them all yourself.” ~Hyman George Rickover

Today’s Message

The use of our words is more powerful than we could have ever imagined. I believe our goal is to become aware of what we say so we use words that empower versus ones that terminate and expire positive thoughts in others.  The choice of our words simply imitates the emotions inside us.

Today’s AFFIRMATION

I use only positive, uplifting words today. I feel good and I let everyone know it.
