Everybody in life gets their “musts”, not their “shoulds” according to Anthony Robbins. We all have our “I should do this and I should do that” list, however, Tony Robbins says we don’t do the things we should, we do the things we must. We all have a definition of who we think we are and we will do anything to keep that belief because these are our musts. Our standards and beliefs about ourselves are our “glass ceilings” of limitation. The question is when did we define ourselves that way and can we change our beliefs about ourselves.
When I first started our home based business, I had many limiting beliefs about myself. My mentors taught me that I could change my life today by changing my inner game. Jim Rohn taught me “Work harder on yourself than you do at your job”. How did I do that? I raised my standards for myself by believing my mentors who said “Kellie, you’re more than you think you are”! Wow, that was so cool! Then I became very teachable and decided to be the best student. I changed by daily rituals and did the disciplines required of a home business owner, I became an entrepreneur. These were very different rituals from the ones I had followed as an employee who wanted to climb the corporate ladder. It wasn’t easy, and I was very uncomfortable, however, it became a “must” for me because I wanted more time with my son and my family. I wanted freedom!
Tony Robbins says “Success and failure are not giant events. They don’t just show up.” It’s all the little things you do each day. He says “People Are Rewarded In Public For What They’ve Practiced For Years In Private”. This is so very true!
Tony also emphasized the one thing I personally feel is the most important influences in your life…he said “Who You Spend Time With Is Who You Become”.
Jim Rohn said “There are 2 pains in life, the pain of discipline and the pain of regret. The pain of discipline weighs ounces while the pain of regret weighs tons.”
Tony said to write down 4 things:
1) Decide what you want to change,
2) What rituals got you where you are today,
3) What do you really want now,
4) What rituals will get you to what you really want.
