This is part 1 of the secrets to success series, where I feature world famous millionaires and their best wisdom.
Hello everyone! Man, I love Tony Robbins. Tony Robbin’s net worth is $480 Million (according to Forbes). More than that, he is a multi-millionaire life coach and author that changes the lives of millions of people around the world.
This guy has everythin’ going on, including a beautiful wife ;)
“The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you.” – Tony Robbins

1) Rev Up Your Energy and State of Well-being

If you’ve been to any Tony Robbins seminar or workshops, you’ll know that everyone gets into a severe emotional high there. Get into a higher level of consciousness, and if you’re operating at your peak emotional psych, you’ll make the best progress.
An intense environment will trigger you to alter your behaviour. That’s why seminars and camps work. 
“The state you are in determines your abilities. Everyone’s got the ability. It’s like I have a great computer but if I’m not going to plug it in, I am not going to have much power.” – Tony Robbins
Know what gets your energy up. (is it a visualisation, a cup of coffee, people you’re working with, or that particular cafe?)

2) Trade your Expectations for Appreciation

There was a period of time when I was really depressed that my internet business was not taking off. Once I learnt to let go of my expectations and most importantly be grateful for the little progress I have made, I was less harsh to myself and also a lot happier.
I’ll always remember the first 2 subscribers I got for this blog. I was glad, but not elated. I texted my boyfriend and told him, “I have two subscribers!”
And he replied, “Congratulations!”
And I said, “but it’s only two subscribers..:(”
What came next was a great life lesson for me. My boyfriend said, “That’s very good progress, every small win counts!” While it is a seemingly small matter, but that incident really left an impact on my life. From that day on, I was grateful and appreciative for every small win I had with this blog.
In a video by Tony Robbins, he advices us to trade our expectations for appreciation; and our whole life will become a miracle.
Because when we expect something but we don’t get it, we get upset. However, if we appreciate something, life becomes more wonderful.

3) Stop Believing in Your Disempowering Story

What’s your core belief system? What story do you cling on to that is holding you back?
For example, you aren’t ever going to lose weight if you believe that you can’t because you are big-boned, or succeed in business if you believe you can’t because you’re stupid.
“Your story is not why you’re stuck. It’s just that you believe your story. A story either empowers or disempowers you. It’s comforting and the reason it is comforting is that we are all deathly afraid of failure.”  – Tony Robbins
When you believe an empowering story, you’ll start putting in more effort to discover the right strategies, and from there you can find success.

4) Where we Focus, Energy Goes

Whatever you focus on, grows. If you want to master something, you have to give it laser-light focus. You have to be crystal clear on what you are focusing on. 
Be very clear on where you will be. What will you be doing? Where will you be? Who will you be with? Knowing this with clarity will help you decide on what exactly to focus on today and constantly hustle towards where your heart wants to be.  Decide today if you’ll accept life as it currently is or if you’ll live your life on your own terms, passionate and at the highest level.  

5) Make 2MM Changes For Breakthroughs in Your Life

When you change your angle of your strategies by just a little, you can make huge impact.
Small changes result in huge impact. If nothing is working, you’re just a little change away from your success.
In 2MM, your posture goes from “uncertain” to “I’m confident”.
In 2MM, you can go from looking like a superstar to being extremely ugly.
You’re 2mm away from success. Take small steps.

6) Bring Your Target Closer

Take Facebook for example. It started in a Harvard dormitory. Then Facebook went to a second school. And then a third. That’s how Facebook succeeded. First Mark aimed for one school, and then another, and then another.
It’s about making realistic goals that you believe in when you attempt to think big.
This was how Mark Cuban succeeded. He didn’t just start Broadcast.com and make a billion. First he started a bar. Then he started a computer business. Then a hedge fund. He brought the target very close and then moved it further and further away as he succeeded 

7) Know the 6 Fundamental Human Needs

Why we do what we do? In this ted talk, Tony Robbins discusses 6 human needs. Know what humans want, know what drives them, and you can understand and appreciate others.
What makes people tick? What makes people do something beyond themselves?
Certainty – Assurance you can avoid pain and gain pleasure
Uncertainty/Variety – The need for the unknown, change, new stimuli
Significance – Feeling unique, important, special or needed
Connection/Love- A strong feeling of closeness or union with someone or something
Growth – An expansion of capacity, capability or understanding
Contribution – A sense of service and focus on helping, giving to, and supporting others

8) Decisions Shape Your Destiny

Different decisions produce different results. If you want to control the direction of your life, you must consistently make good decisions. It’s not what you do once in a while that has an impact on the direction of your life—it’s what you do consistently. Make decisions today about how you are going to live in the years to come. – Tony Robbins
Here are 3 important decisions you have to make, from Tony Robbins himself.
Decision 1: Carefully choose what to focus on.
Decision 2: Figure out, What does this all mean?
Decision 3: What will you do next? If you want to shape your actions, the fastest way is to change what you focus on and shift the meaning to be something more empowering.
