Quoted by: Anthony Robbins
To get what you want out of life you have to.. think positive, set goals, work hard, be patient, and make sacrifices. Right?
I found an easier way.. and used it to transform my life, fulfill my dreams, find true happiness, and even become a millionaire by the time I was 29.
Here's how it works...
Think back to one of those rare moments when you felt ...
* on top of the world: Fearless and certain, with limitless energy, incredible ability, amazing clarity of thought... able to conquer anything...
* vibrant with an "aliveness" impossible to describe. Inspired... bursting with creativity, brilliant ideas, and plans for exciting things to do...
* in total control, optimistic, tasting a level of freedom that few ever find... a golden moment in which your life was rich with purpose, meaning, awe, and inner peace.
Then in a flash, it's gone. You're back to living half a life, and doing things the hard way.
How long do you wait for the moment to return? A week, a month, a year, a lifetime?
Let me show you how you can enter this state, instantly - at your command - unleashing an incredible power that transforms your life...
Make your dreams come true, right now!
This is about entering a state in which you possess incredible powers and extraordinary abilities - your "peak state."
The inability to put oneself in a "peak state" - and to tap into one's innate power - explains why so many intelligent, talented, hardworking people end up with less than they desire and deserve.
I'm going to show you how to unleash this inner power - whenever you wish - and use it to transform your life and make your dreams come true.
Let me share a story to illustrate my point:
I was on a flight, sitting in first class, when shortly after take-off I heard, "Aren't you the power guy?" I turned, and from across the aisle, I again heard, "Anthony Robbins. The power guy. Right?" I smiled and nodded.
The well-dressed elderly man introduced himself, told me the name of his company, and to impress me, mentioned the major league sports team he owns. I'll call him Mr. Big. He then introduced the man next to him, his lawyer, who I'll call Phil.
"You promise unlimited power. Isn't that your shtick?" asked Mr. Big.
He obviously thrives on confrontation. If he only knew what was about to happen.
"I'm intrigued," he continued without waiting for my reply, "I've watched your infomercial, and I think it's a lot of crap."
I listened politely.
"The way I see it, everyone falls into one of two groups: the powerful and the powerless. Ninety-nine percent are powerless...and regardless of what you promise them, they'll stay powerless until the day they die."
"You're missing the point," I said. "Everyone has an untapped power center, and I show people how to unleash it and use it to fulfill their dreams."
"Bull----! You want to see real power? Watch this."
Mr. Big picked up his drink and, without hesitation, poured it slowly into Phil's lap. Phil jumped up, blurted an obscenity, and looked at Mr. Big in horror.
Frantically, he brushed the ice onto the floor, wiped his wet pants, forced a frozen smile, and said, "That's funny."
Mr. Big then turned to me and said, "That, Mr. Robbins, is power."
"Powerlessness" condemns people to a lifelong prison sentence
I've seen thousands of people like Phil - intelligent, talented, well-educated, full of big dreams - who are prepared to work hard and make sacrifices. They do everything right... but in the end, they fall short of their expectations.
Because they're missing the key ingredient:
To make things happen, you first have to turn on your power and enter your peak state.
If you don't, it's like putting a roast into a cold oven and forgetting to turn on the heat.
Nothing's going to happen.
Without the power, people's lives become a string of good intentions - instead of the achievements, victories, fulfillment, and results they desire.
They spend their lives working too hard, for too long, reaping few lifetime rewards, giving up often, and settling for less than they want and deserve.
Phil could have it all. He just needed to know he had the power and how to activate it. Until he finds the power, he'll spend the rest of his working life being a doormat to bullies like Mr. Big.
I couldn't sit there and do nothing.
When Mr. Big went to the restroom, I asked Phil why he put up with such abuse. "He's harmless. He's just having fun," Phil said. Then adding, "But I have been thinking that I should drop him as a client."
It drives me crazy when I hear people say "should."
"Shoulds" never materialize. It's a clear sign that Phil sees himself as powerless. At that moment, I decided to share what I know with Phil.
I reached into my briefcase, removed my personal notes from the 3-day seminar I had just given, Unleash the Power Within, took out half a dozen relevant pages and handed them to him and said, "You MUST read this, now!"
One of the first things I tell people at my Unleash the Power Within seminar is to replace the word SHOULD with MUST.
Instead of saying, I should find a better job, I should start my own business, I should lose weight, I should quit smoking, I should spend more time with my kids...say MUST.
Say, I must find a better job, I must start my own business, I must lose weight, I must quit smoking, I must spend more time with my kids...and you'll notice an immediate change.
Achieving what you want is easy ... when you know how to unleash the power within
Mr. Big returned from the restroom, took his seat, and grabbed a magazine. Phil was studying the pages I handed him. About 20 minutes later, Phil stopped reading, placed the papers on his pullout table, and stared directly ahead into space.
"Phil," Mr. Big said. Phil didn't answer. He just kept staring. "Phil, what time are we going to land?"
Looking straight ahead, barley moving a muscle, Phil replied, "3:55."
"Jim's going to meet us at the airport, right?"
"You know how we're going to play this, right?"
"I don't want any screw-ups."
Phil sat there, staring straight ahead, appearing to be somewhere else, lost in thought. But actually, something quite different was taking place inside Phil. I could see it. I've seen it thousands of times in other people as it happened to them.
I've seen the same look in people who attend my seminar as they step onto a bed of red-hot coals - glowing at 1,500 degrees - walk across, smiling and relaxed, without burning their feet.
I've seen the same look in people who accomplish amazing feats that few can do.
How did they do it? They entered their "peak state."
Phil was there at this moment, and I watched with the same pride that parents have as they watch their child perform in a school play. I just sat and waited to see what he would do with it.
Suddenly, Phil called the flight attendant and asked if there was an empty seat back in coach. "Plenty," he said.
"Good. I'd like one, please."
Mr. Big looked startled, "What's going on, Phil?"
Phil got up, grabbed his laptop computer, turned to Mr. Big and calmly said, "You'll have to find another lawyer."
"Sit down, Phil!" he said.
Phil just smiled as he grabbed his things from overhead.
"If you don't sit down right now, I'll..."
"You'll do what?"
Still smiling, Phil turned, winked at me, mouthed, "Thanks," and walked to the rear of the plane.
Mr. Big's face was red. He turned to me and said, "Do you see the kind of idiots I have to deal with?" Then after a pause, "I'll bet you 50 bucks that he'll be back...he'll be back before this plane touches down...he'll be crawling back to me."
Phil stayed in coach, enjoyed the flight, and made plans for a new life.
The key ingredient to transforming your life is tapping into your inner power
What happened to Phil?
Well, two things.
First, he discovered something that few people know. And of those who know, only a handful understand how it works:
He learned that inside each of us is a power center - the source of that powerful, driving force that, once unleashed, makes any vision, dream, or desire a reality.
The second thing he discovered is the most beneficial of all:
A simple way to unleash that power.
But here's the interesting part.
As you unleash that power, you're entering your "peak state" and are capable of achieving whatever you desire, with surprisingly little effort.
Your physical abilities multiply. Your mental abilities multiply. Your talents multiply. Your skills multiply. Everything you do, you will do that much better. Obstacles, the unknown, and doubt disappear. You perform the most difficult task, effortlessly.
Operate from your "peak state," and you'll have more confidence, more self-esteem, more passion, and more enthusiasm. You'll be at the top of your game, as they say.
Enter your "peak state," and answers are instant and insightful. You see the higher purpose for your life. Old patterns and limiting beliefs vanish. For the first time in your life, you know what it means to be FREE! I mean Really Free!
In your "peak state" you communicate distinctly. You look different. People perceive you as taller. Better looking. You glow.
Hope and chance are replaced with "by design." You know where you're going, how you're going to get there, and nothing can stop you.
Everyone doubts it works ... until they try it
"Something doesn't sound right," people argue. "Are you saying that once you unleash the power inside you, you can accomplish anything?"
Yes, anything! And without force. Without willpower. Without positive thinking. Without repetition of affirmations. Enter your "peak state" and nothing will stand in your way.
Learning how to do it is easy. Let me show you. Here's what happened to world tennis champ, Andre Agassi:
Andre Agassi wasn't doing too well. I met him when he dropped to 50th in the world. Like a lot of people, he wasn't convinced of my technique, and his attitude showed it.
I said, "Look, Andre, the bottom line is you give me 15 minutes of your total attention. If in 15 minutes you don't feel an immediate radical change, then that will end it." He agreed, and we began.
"What was your best game?" I asked.
"When I won Wimbledon."
"What were you thinking when you walked onto the court and looked at your opponent?"
Andre laughed, "I looked at him and I said to myself, 'Why did you even show up?'" And he laughed again. His expression changed.
His face came alive, radiating with energy. During that game, Andre was in his "peak state." In that state, he doesn't think about his backhand because he's at his best. He doesn't think about anything. He just does it. He flows.
Then I asked him about his worst game.
"When I lost the French Open."
"What were you thinking when you saw your opponent?"
"I suddenly remembered the last time he beat me." As he said that, his face tightened and lost its radiance, his chest sank, and his shoulders dropped. I now had everything I needed.
During the next few moments, I showed him a couple of simple ways to trigger his peak state whenever he wished.
Less than six months later, he was number one in the world.
You see, Andre doesn't have to learn anything about tennis. But he does have to control his state so that he plays the game using 100% of the ability and knowledge he possesses.
And it's something that anyone can learn to do.
I'd like to make the same offer I made to ...
Andre Agassi, and to the 2 million people in 65 countries who have attended my seminars.
Allow me the opportunity to prove to you that you can unleash the power within you...at your will.
Use this power to free yourself from fears and past conditioning that have held you back. Join me and experience how life is supposed to be lived:
the excitement of being in control...moving down the road in a direction that feels right...with each day getting better and better.
Bring out the best in yourself, and the best from what life offers.
I urge you to learn my simple technique for unleashing the power within and experience life as it's meant to be lived...doing things that you feel passionate about ... operating from your "peak state."
