“NEW LIFE COMES FROM NEW DECISIONS.” –Tony Robbins
Chapter 3 The Force that Shapes Your Life
In this chapter Tony Robbins Talk about the Emotions and Sensations which is linked with our thoughts, he asked us to identify which emotions empower us, is it the emotions which create pleasure or the emotions which creates pain in us?
Chapter 4: Belief system
Here in this chapter Robbins talk about two types of belief system, 1 limiting belief system and 2) Empowering belief system
In order to remove Limiting belief system we need associate old belief with pain by telling ourselves and need to convince our mind, that we stuck to the old limiting belief, we will not grow in our life and will never improve, hence if I want to grow and want to move ahead in life it is necessary to cut and eliminate the old limiting belief.
And if we associate pleasure with a new belief, will feel good adopting that new belief.
Chapter 5 Conditioning
Here Robbins explains, once we adopt change, it becomes difficult to maintain that change for a long time. Hence to maintain it for a long time, he suggests training our nervous system to success, and we need to train it over and over again,
For example, saying that I quit smoking and not smoking one day is easy but not to smoke forever is quite difficult hence we need to Control we need to train ourselves for this.
Chapter 6 Contains major question which we must ask ourselves in order to achieve what we want
What do you Want? Why you want it? Got your answer?
Ones your Why is clear your how becomes easy
Chapter 7 is about asking question and answers
It says if you ask a good question that good question will lead to good life, but even though asking the same question again you are not growing in your life, for this Robbins says simply change your habitual questions.
Chapter 8 and 9 Talk About Vocabulary of ultimate success Thus including metaphors
Tony Robbin says Words. They have been used to make us laugh and cry, they can wound or heal, they offer us hope and devastation, with words we can make noblest intentions felt and our deepest desires known.
Hence Robbins says Words can injure our egos or inflames our hearts, we can instantly change any emotional experience simply by choosing new words to describe to ourselves what we are feeling.
Most of us don’t realize that the words you habitually choose also affect how you communicate with yourself and therefore what you experience
For example, if you develop a habit of saying you “hate” things – you “hate” your hair – you hate your job, do you think this raises the intensity of your negative emotional states more than of you were to use a phrase like I PREFER SOMETHING ELSE.
Chapter 10 Talk about The ten Emotions of power
Here author says that he believes that there are 4 basic ways people deal with their emotions
We all want to avoid painful emotions, as a result most people try to avoid any situation that could lead to the emotions that they fear- or worse. Some people try not to feel any emotion at all.
For example, they fear rejection, so they will try to avoid any situation that could lead to rejection, they shy away from relationships, they don’t apply for challenging jobs.
Dealing with emotions in this way is the ultimate trap because while avoiding negative situation may protect you in short-term. A much more powerful approach is to learn to find out the hidden positive meaning in those things you once thought were negative emotions.
A SECOND APPROACH TO DEALING WITH Emotions is the Denial strategy. People often try to disassociate from their feelings by saying, “it doesn’t feel that bad.” Meanwhile, they keep stroking the fire within themselves by thinking how horrible things are. This isn’t good it will affect you and your life
Many people stop fighting their painful emotion and decide to fully indulge in them, rather than learn the positive message their emotion is trying to give them, they intensify it and make it, even more, worse than it is, it becomes “badge of courage” and they begin to compete with others.
Never compare yourself with others. You are unique and the only competition is you yourself, this mindset will move you ahead in life.
4. Learning and using
If you want to make your life really work. You must make your emotion work for you. you can’t run from them, you can’t tune them out, you can’t trivialize them or delude yourself about what they mean, nor you can just allow them to run your life. Emotion can be really painful for sometimes, but they help you to take action and helps you to move towards your goals.
This book awakens giant contains much more such useful chapter which will for sure help you to make your life better and help you to improve quality of your life.
