Tony Robbins: Stop Holding Yourself Back (Tony Robbins 2017)
Are your beliefs holding you back?
Actor Hugh Jackman shares how changing his story changed his life
“What’s your story? What do you believe about your lot in life? Are those beliefs empowering you or preventing you from living a happy, fulfilled life?”
Most of us do not make a conscious decision about what we believe. Rather, our beliefs are based on generalizations we make about our past. And unfortunately, many of us are wired to hone in on the painful experiences and form pessimistic beliefs about what that means for our current state of affairs and the potential for our future.
How many times have you heard someone say “that’s just my luck” when something bad happens? Or make grandiose statements, claiming that bad things “always” happen or that it would take a miracle for their misfortune to change?
No matter how much good transpires, we give the bad more attention, and, in turn, give the story of pain and struggle power. And we are uniquely skilled at finding more specific experiences to back those stories up. Because the more references we have to support our beliefs, the more valid they become for us.
Yet this personal narrative prevents us from reaching our true potential and transforming the quality of our lives. Because limiting beliefs affect how much action we take, which then affects the results we get, which, in turn, reinforces our limiting beliefs. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy in which we are our own worst enemy.
If you continue to tell yourself the same story, it will continue to be true. But when you change your story, you can change your life — a lesson actor Hugh Jackman recently learned at a recent Unleash the Power Within event:

With an empowering story, individuals tend to find effective strategies, and effective strategies yield real results. But to find that empowering story, we first have to deal with our limiting beliefs. And that begins with addressing one of the most important elements of all — our state.
The psychological and emotional state we are experiencing at any given moment tends to shape our story. We all develop emotional habits, or patterns, that influence how we perceive our lives. And the states that we are in most often become the most powerful filter of all, determining whether or not we find the strategies necessary to succeed or whether or not we create stories that empower us.
So how do we break our negative states? How do we make the shift towards positive thought and feeling patterns?
It all comes down to making the conscious decision to recondition your mind with empowering beliefs. Empowering beliefs help you transition into a new state of being where you have absolute certainty — you don’t just believe that your are capable of achieving great things, you know it. And when you have a mindset that what you’re doing is going to work, no matter what, you can propel yourself to accomplish virtually anything. Because when you’re certain about your potential, you take massive action. And when you take massive action, you get massive results, reinforcing the belief that you are not only capable of, but are destined for greatness.
“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” — Tony Robbins

Love Tony Robbins. I got to go to Fiji and was blessed to eat in his personal home. He asked me there to teach him and his top sales people to barefoot waterski. What a great time. Looking forward to seeing him again. Tony's teachings have shaped the way I teach others to walk on water. God bless you, Tony.
Would have gotten more out of the video if you would have left the disgusting
experimental example" out. I quit listening when Tony started explaining the animal abuse to help explain his point. I despise and hate animal abusers.
Excellent vid - my personal notes:
-“The best way to get it is to give it”. Tony goes into an example of someone who uses pity about his car accidents and falling down to get love from others. Rony explains that people will resent him in time. Instead, if he wants loves, he needs to give a lot of love. The university and people will reciprocate and it will feel good now. THIS is my way.
-Do not make Self-Sabotage a thing. It is just a tendency. A pattern that can be scrambled.
-If this tendency is occurring. It is because ultimately my brain is employing it as a stradegy to escape pain and increase pleasure. I need to explain to my brain that in the long run – the sabotage actually creates much more pain than the short term discomfort
-Don’t get mad at myself for this. My brain is trying to protect me. It’s awesome. Its trying to do a good job.
-Step 1: Identify the specific situation/s where the tendency occurs. For me, this is whenever I notice myself in a great peaceful mood. A part of my will straight away find something to bring me down. Maybe find a critiscism, something to worry about, or bring back something from the past. I think this pattern emerges because it is escaping pain from …. And finding pleasure in…. Recognize this.
Step 2: Find the positive it what my brain is trying to do. E.g. choking on dates may be my brain trying to protect me from rejection.
-Step 3. Explain to my brain the Cost of this pattern. How it is hurting me. Which my brain may not realize. Write down the pain it gives me and the pleasure I will get if I stop.
-Step 4. Erasure technique to interrupt the pattern. Re-play the scenario over and over, with the self-sabotage, as a cartoon, to the point where I can clearly see how ricidiclioys the pattern is.
-Step5: Success Scenarios. Re-play the scenario over and over, this time with a new pattern, without self-sabotage.i.e. getting in the pattern of success.
A true genius at emotional intelligence. This is stuff thats life changing. Theres no grand story behind self sabotage, except that the brain wants us to be protected from harm, all it cares abt is survival and pleasure. But we are the true masters of our minds. I needed to learn this very badly bc ive been associating success with pain and suffering, even tho the road to sucess is more fulfilling and meaningful than a road that i dont care about. Thank you for uploading this.
