A couple of days ago, my family and I attended the National Achievers Congress. We got twelve hours of knowledge thrown at our hearts, minds and soul! We got to watch all different speakers talk about what has helped them become successful, and it was one of the best days of my life. I'm not going to lie, I initially bought the ticket to watch my sister in all her glory. Since I was a young kid, she has been absolutely freakin' OBSESSED with Tony Robbins, the biggest life success coach in the world.
When I was younger I wanted nothing to do with him or any of his ideas that my sister constantly shoved down my throat. Little did I know, I too would become completely obsessed with him as well. There is really no way to describe him, he has a contagious energy that is uplifting and euphoric. When he stands by you, he somehow makes you feel extremely valuable and important to the world without even speaking. He lights up a room with DEEP conversation and pushes you outside your comfort zone, forcing you to grow. It was epic and I loved every second of it.
I cried, laughed, and reflected A LOT. Even better, I got to see my sister cry from pure happiness when he walked out-like a little middle school girl at Justin Bieber. It was amazing to say the least.
I could be here ALL DAY talking about everything that I learned or was reminded but here are a couple:
- SELF AWARENESS IS EVERYTHING- we have to get clear about who we are, what our strengths and weaknesses in order to live successfully. We must be authentic to who we are and understand what makes us unique and then build on that.
- ACT IN SPITE OF FEAR- Fear is one of the biggest things that hold us back from our success. You can never really get rid of fear, but you can act WITH and FOR it. If you stay afraid of fear, then you will never overcome fear. We have to get out of our comfort zone, and reach our capacity for change. Once we reach this, we will be able to break through the threshold of control.
- ENERGY IS EVERYTHING- It is a state of being, and in order to create our best life daily we must give out the same energy we hope to receive.
- TAKE CONTROL OF OUR PERCEPTION- We don't experience life, we experience our interpretation of life. The way we view the world is ESSENTIAL to our happiness. It is a choice on how we interpret the world, those who live in it and what happens to us. Take control of your own happiness by shifting your perception!
- KNOWLEDGE IS NOTHING WITHOUT PURPOSE & FULFILLMENT- I can sit here all day long and deliver good content to you guys, but if it doesn't make me genuinely feel happy and fulfilled then it will never achieve success. It won't feel authentic, it will just feel forced and your audience won't buy in to the great things you have to say!
- ALL OF IT MEANS NOTHING WITHOUT ACTION- We have the choice to do ANYTHING we want, but all of it means nothing if we don't take massive action on our dreams.
These are the things I found MOST important, and really hit home. It was such a fun day and I feel so incredibly blessed to have experienced such amazing moments with my family. He has impacted us so much, we can only hope to bring half the energy and inspiration he brings to his audience, to you guys! Thank you Tony Robbins for all that you bring to our lives!
