Basic lesson is this: You are a reflection of all of your past thoughts and actions...but you are not your past...its all in your mind stuck leaving you in a rut and this book is the tow truck to help "you" get yourself out.
I jokingly made a list of qualities I wanted in a person as well as a list of things I would not tolerate in someone. Tony suggests a much shorter list. But I was determined to get what I really wanted! I ended up with a list of 28 qualities I’d like to have in a partner. I laughed as I continued to write and thought to myself, “No wonder I’m single!”
About one month later I met someone I really liked. By this time I had completely forgotten about the list. After dating for a couple of weeks, I remembered the list and I went back to read it. Not only was she was everything on the list, but I ended up adding 2 more things because of her.
There’s so much more in this book than a plan to find a great match. I plan on reading this book again!
I picked up the book, "Awaken the Giant Within" because I came across Tony Robbin's audio on youtube that had a similar theme. The hour long audio made me feel empowered enough that I wanted to know more about the author. I recommend this book if you would like to discover your true life's purpose and the steps to achieving your goals efficiently and effectively while taking complete control of your life.
Tony Robbin's has a reputation as a successful businessman and he teaches people how to master their emotions. He is our nation's leader in peak performance and an expert in the psychology of change. In his early life, his mother was an alcoholic who has had several husbands, while his father was absent in his life. He's like many of us, but decided without any formal education in psychology to begin his own work as a self-help coach.
Within this book he emphasizes how beliefs, values, and your rules affect your behaviors. He links pain and pleasure as the reason why people make decisions. For example, if an individual is overweight and desires weight loss, but links a lot more pleasure to eating unhealthy foods and pain when it comes to exercising, then they aren't making a change to their behavior. Tony Robbins gives step by step tips on how to associate pain to your bad habits so that you can ultimately stop those decisions or bad habits and make better life choices.
Tony also explains the importance of asking your self quality questions. He regularly uses "Seek and you shall find" and describes how your mind will find whatever you tell it to seek. If you ask lousy questions, you will get lousy answers.
He then explains how our every day vocabulary and metaphors can affect the way we are feeling. For example, using the metaphor, "I hit a brick wall" means "I'm feeling stuck" and Tony teaches how to break those metaphorical patterns by responding to this by saying, "Then climb over the wall" or "Then go around it." He describes how we can use our everyday language to benefit our daily lives.
Tony later mentions within the book that our identity is what we make ourselves to be. For example, an individual can identify them-self as an alcoholic and this will cause them to desire alcohol. In order to stop drinking, the person must start seeing themselves as a non-alcoholic to begin creating lasting changes. The person would have to create a new experience and reference points to provide them with this newer, beneficial belief. Even small successes that occur will give an individual the belief that they WILL succeed.
He then mentions the, "CANI" attitude meaning "Constant and Never Ending improvement." By going beyond what we set our limits are is enough know that we CAN be successful. The attitude is, "If I CAN do this activity, what other activities, CAN I do?" This attitude is about how accomplishments can cause you to do activities that you may have felt wasn't of your ability. As your confidence increases with your accomplishments, you will begin to believe that you CAN do more.
The difference about this book and many other self-help books is that it gives several examples and also gives a more interactive experience with the exercises he has within this book. This book has benefited me because I feel more in control of my emotions. I used to stress out a lot but found that it was so much better for me to put my energy in a more beneficial place. Because of the knowledge I have obtained from this book, I have found myself noticing patterns of people's behaviors and how it benefits them and also how it ruins them. I found that Tony's techniques have been useful is creating a more pleasant lifestyle that is healthier for my body and the people around me.
I can confirm that because of this book, the people I have surrounded myself with have changed as I became better. I am now surrounded by more successful individuals, and people who have similar interests in being in control of their life. This book will give you a fresh perspective on your life and the factors that contribute to why you are where you are. I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for the assistance of this book.
rife with insights & advice to help build yourself into the person you want to become (and know you deserve to become),
all through your own power & efforts.
In this way, you'll clear away all the mental detritus
that restrains & conceals The Giant Within.
Each chapter is well organized, and has a great flow throughout the book.
The concepts you will learn in this book will help you perfect your current situation, change your mind, thereby changing your life.
Some parts of Robbins' writing appears to be fluff, and other times he utilizes this book to advertise his seminars and his other book Unlimited Power. Which is why I fail to give this book a 5/5, and I give it a solid 4-4.5/5.
This is a book you want to read, and re-read to help advance your career, your current mindset, your relationships with people, and your finances. I recommend you pick up this book and actively take charge of your life.
