Ever say I don’t need Motivation…that’s good because Tony Robbins will tell you he’s not the motivation guy that people say he is. He is the “Why Guy”. He has a focus in the world of neuro linguistic programming. He has created books and programs you may have heard of or own- Unleash the Power Within, Unlimited Power, Personal Power 2, Date with Destiny and so much more.
Today I’m sharing 13 tidbits of wisdom direct from the great Anthony Robbins and it’s your decision to become your very own “Why Guy or Why Gal”.
1- The way to win is with immersion
2- Focus on what is driving you today (not 10 years ago)
3- The science of achievement is when you make the invisible visible in your life there is a formula and once you’ve got it nailed you can do it over and over again
4- The art of fulfillment is met when you expereince appreciation and contribution…this is not as simple as the science of achievement
5- When people come up with all the common excuses for lack of results (time, money, knowledge, technology challenges etc.) it’s not about the lack of resources it’s all about their lack of resourcefulness
6- Decisions shape your destiny…What are you focusing on right now?
7- With the right emotion you can breakthrough
8- There are 6,000 emotions and most people use less than 12 and over half of the ones used are making people feel like crap day in and day out
9- Become aware of your “State”
10- Get a handle on your “Filters” your “Model of the World”
12- Know what drives you there are 6 Human needs they are Certainty, Uncertainty, Significance, Connection & Love. Every human finds a way to meet these first four even if it is thru destructive means. The final two are needs of the spirit that you must have in order to live a life with fulfillment. They are contribution and growth…being able to contribute beyond yourself you have to experience it not just talk about. This is not corny or stupid it’s where your growth takes you into what I like to call the area of being a ‘Go Getter and Go Giver” something that is required from more people on this planet.
13- It’s about Emotional Fitness and Physcological Strength
Tony Robbins is amazing and I love his work and passion. He is obsessed with what he calls being able to get “Right Now Results”. Each person on the planet has the ability to get the results they desire right now if they decide to focus on it. Make a note that knowing and not doing means ZERO result. Making decisions and taking action is the path to results. Enjoy his work and decide to Unleash The Power Within yourself now.
Get out there today and ask yourself…If today where my last day…What would I do “focus” on right this second.

I like to keep things simple. How do you become your own NLP Life Coach? The answer is no secret…are you ready? “Decide.” That’s it! You must first decide, then of course you dig in and do. Take action steps as soon as you decide. Go ahead, ask yourself now “What one thing can I do today that will put me on the path to becoming my own NLP Coach?” I’m going to share with you what I’ve done over the past several years and it may give you some ideas to work with today as soon as you’re finished reading this post.
Many years ago I picked up a book written by someone who most people who have been on the journey of personal development have heard of. His name is Anthony Robbins. I read pieces of the book and then retired it to my book shelf. Then fast forward many years later in my life…You know the old saying, when the student is ready the teacher appears.
In early 2008 I was invited to a teleconference training that was being conducted by Michael Bernhoff . The name of his company is the Human Communications Institute. As soon as the training call was completed, I knew I wanted to learn more from Michael. I thought…he would be the perfect teacher for me at this point in my journey. He has many gifts and I feel one of the most important gifts he lives by and teaches is summed up in a quote on his website. Here it is-
“The way you effectively communicate with yourself and others will create unlimited possibilities in your own life and the lives of those around you.”
With that quote fresh in your mind, let’s look at an exercise you can do right now to begin your journey as your own NLP Coach.
First, I want you to ask yourself three simple questions and write down the first thing that comes to mind.
1- What is my life like?
2- What is making money like?
3- What are my relationships like?
I’m sure you’ll come up with some quick answers and those are the ones to write down now. Don’t try too hard or even think too much or you’ll miss the whole purpose of this exercise. Just write the first thing that comes to you when you ask yourself these three questions. There are no wrong answers. Go write it down now.
Now that you have the word or words that immediately came to you, write out a list of positive and disempowering things that are associated with each of the words (or stories you came up with) that you’re framing your life, relationships, and money around. Once you’ve done this and you’ve been 100% honest with yourself, you can re-write or adjust your script in these three important areas. I’ll give you an example below that I re-wrote in my life.
What is making money like? My old answer was…Making money takes hard work! It takes lots of hours to make lots of money. You must work really really hard and make big sacrifices. So my old way to making money was the hard way.
My new way of defining making money-
Making money is doing what I love most daily! I no longer have to work really hard to make lots of money. I’m working from my heart and loving the energy of being myself and this makes money come to me naturally and easily. Making money is heart work!
I’m so excited for you and your decision to become your own NLP Coach. Remember it’s a process a journey, so keep going and have fun. If you’re looking for a really AWESOME Mentor, I would suggest Michael Bernoff. He has delivered so much value to me in the past two years, it’s been life changing for sure. You can start by learning more about his Call 2 Action Course. It’s five powerful hours that are proven to get results. Also, you can get it all done right from the comfort of your home.
Go out and communicate great now- Sharon Ann Irwin
