What Tony Robbins Taught Us
About Why Motivation Is Overrated
When you think of Tony Robbins, what’s the first word that comes to mind?
In a TED talk that’s been watched by about 10 million people, he came out onto stage and the first thing he said was that in spite of what everyone thinks, his job isn’t to go around motivating people.
Instead, he’s the guy who wants to know WHY you act the way you do.
What is it in your thoughts that makes you behave the way you do?
Because the truth is...your emotions are driving you. There’s a whole lot of stuff going on behind the scenes, and you’re not aware of most of it.
The habits you have, the patterns of behaviour you engage in.
They’re all driven by things that happened in the past. Stories that you tell yourself about who you are, and what you’re capable of.
That’s why in the 28 Day I’m there to kick your arse.
I get you to take actions and create habits so that you don’t need to rely on motivation.
Motivation won’t get you through when you can’t be bothered to go for a run first thing in the morning.
But committing to taking that action for 28 days (with me keeping an eye on you) - gives you the space to build new habits.
Write new stories.
Create a new identity.
And THAT’s where you’ll create long-lasting and life-changing results.
