Tony Robbins invites us to look back at the decisions that have shaped our lives.
“If decisions shape destiny, what determines it is three decisions. What are you gonna focus on? Right now, you have to decide what you’re gonna focus on. In this second, consciously or unconsciously, the minute you decide to focus on something, gotta give it a meaning. And whatever that meaning is produces emotion. Is this the end or the beginning? Is God punishing me or rewarding me or is this the roll of the dice. An emotion then creates what we’re gonna do or the action. So, think about your own life, the decisions that have shaped your destiny. And that sounds really heavy, but in the last five or ten years, fifteen years, haven’t there been some decision you’ve made, that if you’d made a different decision, your life would be completely different. The history of our world is these decisions. When a woman stands up and says, no, I won’t go to the back of the bus, she doesn’t just affect her life, that decision shaped our culture. So transformation can happen, so my invitation to you is this: explore your web. The web in here. The needs, the beliefs, the emotions that are controlling you, for two reasons, so there’s more of you to give, and achieve too, we all wanna do it, but I mean give, because that’s what gonna fill you up. And secondly, so you can appreciate, not just understand, that intellectual, that’s the mind, but appreciate what’s driving other people, it’s the only way our world’s gonna change.”
