4 Life Lessons From Tony Robbins to Improve Your Quality of Life

The course of your day is determined by how you start it.

If you start feeling bad about yourself, your whole day will go badly. It is pure conditioning that influences your behavior.

Tony Robbins, the positivity guru from the United States has developed the NLP technique (neuro-linguistic programming) that develops self-confidence and improves life.

He made people walk over hot coals to prove that willpower is essential.

These 4 lessons from Tony Robbins improve the quality of life and make you feel better.

Focus on your goals, always

When I start a project, I need a schedule. If I just start from scratch, nothing will come of it — it will be a big chaos.

It works the same way with goals in life.

You need to make sure you have clear goals in life that you could realistically pursue. Know what you want in life and go for it.

When you get stuck in the little things that surround it you will also keep getting stuck in the spiral process-wise in your life.

You don’t want that.

Make a list after you get up and describe to yourself what you want to accomplish in a day. Does that work? Fine, but if not, no problem but try to achieve your goals the next day.

If you give yourself a certain amount of time to achieve a goal, you will succeed.

Small changes make a significant impact

There are several metaphors to explain this concept well. You could compare it to a very fast formula 1 car.

When driving at such high speed, very little needs to be moved to make a big impact on the outcome, a few millimeters of turning the steering wheel can cause the car to crash, or go just in the right direction.

So it goes with choices in life.

Small changes in your life can lead to big results. So try something new, maybe in a year your life will look completely different: I take cold showers every day and I feel much better every day.

Try it.

Building habits to accumulate happiness

Every human being needs happiness to survive. This is a “fundamental need,” as Tony Robbins describes it.

Habits are crucial in this and we have become less and less disciplined. Now it’s hard to learn a new habit. On average, it takes 66 days to learn a new habit.

But the range is between 18 and 254 days, which of course depends on your discipline.

For example, a good habit you could implement to improve your day is to get up early and take a cold shower before you start your day.

Maybe skip your daily cup of coffee and drink half a liter of water.

Give it a try.

Money buys time, time buys freedom

Do you know the saying “time is money”?

Of course, it sounds like a cliche, but it’s true. Someone who does not have financial freedom will always continue to work to support themselves.

Those who have accumulated a lot of money can afford to do what they want. This is because they buy time, which in turn means they have freedom.

Money does not make one happy, but freedom and free time obviously do.

We live in a world where you need money to be successful. You can sit back and do nothing, but you can also make an effort to improve your life.

Final thoughts: it’s all about mindset

I have mentioned it more often in many articles I have written but the mindset is really the key to a successful and happy life. You are in charge of your life, not the negativity or others trying to influence you.

Take time for yourself to determine what you want to achieve in life. Choose a time frame, 1 year, 5 years, or 10 years. You will be amazed at how much you can accomplish in 1 year. As long as you put in the effort and try to shift your mindset.

You can apply this not only to the wealth part but also to the health part. Try setting a goal for achieving physical goals, such as exercising 2–3 times every week and eating healthy.

Within a year you will be a completely different person.
