All of these important parts dovetail together and work with each other for you to achieve greater success. Only when you are at the peak of performance in all categories can you truly be your best self.

Believe me, these 350 Pages can transform your life, from a sitter to Goal Setter. The book starts with Benjamin Disraeli’s quote:

“A consistent man believes in destiny, a capricious1 man in chance”.

Tony Robbins says, “We all have dreams… We all want to believe deep down in our souls that we have a special gift, that we can make a difference, that we can touch others in a special way, and that we can make the world a better place. At one time in our lives, we all had a vision for the quality of life that we desire. Yet, for many of us, those dreams have become so shrouded in the frustrations and routines of daily life that we no longer even make an effort to accomplish them”.

This book focuses on 3 Rules to follow to achieve your dreams:

  • State Management
  • Success Conditioning
  • Personal Rules

For a businessman to attain a good hold on his employees, he must ask quality questions & should have a command on emotional management with applying the principle of Leveraging.

What is Concentration of Power? When we focus consistently on improvement in any area, we develop unique distinctions on how to make that area better.

The author says that people ask this question quite often. How can I take immediate control of my life? What can I do today that can make a difference—that could help me and others to shape our destinies? How can I expand, learn, grow, and share that knowledge with others in a meaningful and enjoyable way?

The Author advises them to follow 3 Steps if they wish to create long lasting change. These are:

  1. Raise Your Standards
  2. Change Your Limiting Beliefs
  3. Change Your Strategy

Anthony Robbins focuses on 5 areas of life, one must have mastery and will do a huge impact on life. These 5 will be:

  1. Emotional Mastery
  2. Physical Mastery
  3. Relationship Mastery
  4. Financial Mastery
  5. Time Mastery

This book is designed to offer you the strategies that can help you to create, live & enjoy the life you currently may only be dreaming of. You will learn a series of simple and specific strategies for addressing the cause of any challenge and changing it with the least amount of effort. For example, it might be hard for you to believe that merely by changing one word that is part of your habitual vocabulary; you could immediately change your emotional patterns for life. Or that by changing the consistent questions that you consciously or unconsciously ask yourself, you could instantly change what you focus on and therefore what actions you take every day of your life. Or that by making one belief change, you could powerfully change your level of happiness.

Ask these questions from yourself “”How am I going to live the next ten years of my life? How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I’m committed to? What am I going to stand for from now on? What’s important to me right now, and what will be important to me in the long term? What actions can I take today that will shape my ultimate destiny?”

The most powerful way to shape your lives is to get yourselves to take action. The difference in the results that people produce comes down to what they’ve done differently from others in the same situations. Different actions produce different results. Why? Because any action is a cause set in motion, and its effect builds on past effects to move us in a definite direction. Every direction leads to an ultimate destination: Your Destiny.

The answer, of course, is what I’ve been alluding to all along: the power of decision. Everything that happens in your life—both what you’re thrilled with and what you’re challenged by— began with a decision. I believe that it’s in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped. The decisions that you’re making right now, every day, will shape how you feel today as well as who you’re going to become in the nineties and beyond.

“Man is not the creature of circumstances; circumstances are the creatures of men”.

Tony Robbins says that many of us don’t make the majority of our decisions consciously, especially these three absolutely crucial ones; in so doing, we pay a major price. In fact, most people live what I call “The Niagara Syndrome.” I believe that life is like a river, and that most people jump on the river of life without ever really deciding where they want to end up. So, in a short period of time, they get caught up in the current: current events, current fears, and current challenges. When they come to forks in the river, they don’t consciously decide where they want to go, or which is the right direction or them. They merely “go with the flow.” They become a part of the mass of people who are directed by the environment instead of by their own values. As a result, they feel out of control. They remain in this unconscious state until one day the sound of the raging water awakens them, and they discover that they’re five feet from Niagara Falls in a boat with no oars. At this point, they say, “Oh, shoot!” But by then it’s too late. They’re going to take a fall. Sometimes it’s an emotional fall. Sometimes it’s a physical fall. Sometimes it’s a financial fall. It’s likely that whatever challenges you have in your life currently could have been avoided by some better decisions upstream.
