What is the story you are telling yourself right now? What self-limiting beliefs within that story (like, "I'm not good with money" or "I'm not creative")?
Tony Robbins says we need to see life as it is—but not worse than it is. Can you describe your life realistically without emphasizing the negative?
He says the only two choices we have are to lead an inspired life or a dead life. Which choice have you made so far? What's one example from the past six months that exemplifies this choice?
Write about a recent happy moment.
Tony Robbins has said, "I asked her about her joy, and she gave me her wound." Looking at the above answer, did you describe something happy—or tinged with pain or dissatisfaction?
He says people have six needs: love, certainty, adventure, significance, growth and contribution. Write down your two top needs from that list.
Now describe what you've given up as a result of having those two needs as your priorities. For instance, if you chose certainty, which means you value control over things, have you limited spontaneity in your life?
How do you define success? Write your definition below.
Tony Robbins says success without fulfillment is failure. Does your definition of success include things that give you a sense of meaning? Would you say you've been successful so far?
Where in your life do you feel stuck? What is the small action you can take to change? Then what massive action—an exponentially bigger step—can you take?
