Interview With Life Coach Tony Robbins

If there’s one thing that you absolutely must do today, it’s to take 10 minutes out to read this interview with life coach Tony Robbins.  He is the focus guru, the daddy of life coaches, the ‘high priest of human potential’ according to The New York Times.   What he says is congruent with The Law Of Attraction, and the idea of focusing on what you want, rather than what you don’t want.  The Interview is conducted by Marianne Schall for the Huffington Post.  She clearly knows her stuff as you’ll see in her informed questions and engaging responses.

But, really, I think all people’s lives are controlled by three decisions. You look at people’s lives — it’s not their conditions, it’s their decisions. So everybody has a choice and every moment in your life you’re making three decisions. You’re making it while you’re listening to me right now. First one is ‘What are you going to focus on?’ You’re going to focus on what somebody is saying, what it means to you, you’re focusing on how much longer am I going to have to listen to this crap[laughs], you’re focusing on what you’re going to eat — you know, whatever it is, but whatever you focus on you’re going to feel. Now some people have a patterned focus and they focus on what they can’t control and some people focus on what they can. That one pattern alone can shift somebody from being depressed and feeling empowered. Some people’s pattern, for example, is focused on the past. Some patterns the focus almost always goes to the future. Some to the present. There’s no right or wrong, but whatever your pattern of focus is, it starts to control your whole life because it’s the first filter of everything. If your focus is on what you don’t have versus what you do have, it’s not hard to figure out what your life is going to be like. We don’t have to go any further than that and we can determine what your life is going to be like. You’re going to be miserable.

There are a number of fantastic suggestions in this interview with life coach Tony Robbins.  One of my favourite is to go seven days without allowing negative thoughts take over your mind – to catch a negative or derogatory thought as soon as it enters your head.

And this quote:

And when you shift a person’s life, you shift it by changing the pattern of focus, the pattern of meaning and the pattern of action.

It would seem, that once you’ve removed negativity from your life, and “shift your focus” by focusing on what you want, rather than on what you don’t have, and appreciate what you have, that things will start to naturally steer towards your vision.  It’s obviously not quite as simple as that; you can’t just think and realise your goals.  It would appear though, that positive thinking and creating a vision, will encourage you to do whatever it takes to reach your goals.
