I'm Cynical About Self Help Courses

Okay, I may be too cynical and lazy to actually follow through on any of the great advice Tony Robbins offers, but it's still great advice. Here are a few of his quotes:

"A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided."

"Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives."

"For changes to be of any true value, they've got to be lasting and consistent."

"How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I'm committed to?

"I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk."

"I've come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy."

"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten."

"If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you'll achieve the same results."

"In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently."

"In life you need either inspiration or desperation."

"It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped."

"It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute... that gives meaning to our lives."

"It not knowing what to do, it's doing what you know."

"It's not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean."

"Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives."

"Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year - and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!"

"One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular."

"People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals - that is, goals that do not inspire them."
