Attitude is everything. A positive one uplifts others and encourages us to continue.  A negative one entices the opposite.

Today’s Quote

“A negative attitude attracts negative people, events, and energy—just as a positive attitude attracts positive people, events, and energy into our lives.” ~STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS

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.”

TonyRobbins_ContributeOne of my very favorite Tony Robbins posts is as follows: “It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.” I learned this for real after spending about 10 years submerged into self-help for myself. All was great with me, new job, new career, new town, happy family but something was missing. When I learned to ask a different question, “How may I serve?” it literally changed my life. I wrote my first book in 3 days while writing for 15 straight hours for 3 consecutive days. If you would have told me when I was younger I would be an author, I would have told you that you were simply crazy. No way would I have ever entertained that thought. It wasn’t until I asked that different question.

With all of the bullying that is going on around the world, we need to ask ourselves a different question. When I read about an adolescent here in the DFW area committed suicide in the middle school, I was shocked. What was interesting is that the day before my publicist asked me to give an interview on “adolescent suicide” and to be honest, I had never heard of it before. So I knew this was a message for me to ask a different question. “What can I do to help kids suffering from depression?” The end result was a complete re-write of my book, STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS and a new chapter in my life for helping kids.

So, how about asking a different question to yourself today? Please send me a message or comment below. I would love to know what creative question you will start asking yourself to contribute so that your life will have more meaning (as Tony says).

With gratitude and peace,
Bill

 

I was reading a quote by Martin Luther King Jr the other and it reminded me that so many of us give up hope way too often. I have been reading more information about bullying and it too seems that so many of them give up hope.  I believe the message is to always keep hope alive for there is always a reason, no matter how bad the circumstances are, that hope can carry us through our dark times.  I realize that we are certain to experience disappointment from time-to-time, but that doesn’t mean that we have to give up hope.

Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best, “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”  Nuff said!
With peace and gratitude (and a lot of hope),
Bill

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.”
