Why We Do What We Do, and How We Can Do It Better
Tony Robbins discusses the “invisible forces” that make us do what we do. What is your motive for action? What is it that drives you in your life today? Not 10 years ago. Or are you running the same pattern? Because I believe that the invisible force of internal drive, activated, is the most important thing in the world.
So, the question we’ve got to ask ourselves really is, what is it? What is it that shapes us? And we live in a therapy culture. Most of us don’t do that, but the culture’s a therapy culture. And what I mean by that is the mindset that we are our past.
What determines your resources? We’ve said decisions shape destiny, which is my focus here. If decisions shape destiny, what determines it is three decisions.
What are you going to focus on? Right now, you have to decide what you’re going to focus on. In this second, consciously or unconsciously, the minute you decide to focus on something you’ve got to give it a meaning, and whatever that meaning is produces emotion.
So, think about your own life, the decisions that have shaped your destiny. And that sounds really heavy, but in the last five or 10 years, 15 years, how have there been some decisions you’ve made that if you’d made a different decision, your life would be completely different? How many can think about it? Honestly, better or worse?
