Focus: Your First Decision
Tony Robbins - Focus: Your First Decision
If you want to achieve extraordinary results and fulfillment in life, you must begin at the center source of all your choices, decisions, feelings and experience — your focus.
Although we may believe we are constantly driving the direction of our focus, the uncomfortable truth is much of our focus time is spent dwelling on what we don’t want or fear may happen. By allowing ourselves to imagine or preemptively feel negative outcomes, we inform our bodies and minds to prepare for exactly this — what we don’t want, rather than what we do.
The first force that truly controls our life is the primary decision of Focus.
Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on improving and mastering a single area of our lives.
What do you tend to focus on more? What you can control or what you can’t control? What you have or what’s missing? The past? The present? Or the future? The honest answers to these questions will reveal your true pattern.
Before you can create a new system of thinking, you need to a true determination of where your focus is being directed, what feelings this creates and what choices you’re making as a direct consequence.
Decision is the ultimate power we all possess. By understanding the Three Core Decisions each of us makes every moment we’re alive, we grant ourselves the capacity to empower and advance or frustrate or derail yourself, depending on what choice you make.
