Tony Robbins on Decisions

A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided – Tony Robbins

What is one step you mean to take, or a change you mean to make, but haven’t?

Is this a goal that really doesn’t matter? Have you changed your mind, and the goal doesn’t matter anymore?

Are you not sure of the next step and need support?

Is there something else you can focus on, even for the next week or two, to move your energy from procrastination into action mode? Once you get moving towards any other goal, if this one really matters, you’ll come back to it with a renewed commitment.

Overcoming the Hurdle of Impossibility

The greatest hurdle is convincing yourself that what you want is possible. – Author Unknown

I recently read the latest Chip and Dan Heath book, Decisive, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. It is about making better decisions, and one of the book’s first recommendations is Widen Your Options. Think “And” rather than “Either/Or”. Many times that alone makes us creative enough to figure out new solutions.

This quote also reminds us to substitute “Can I?” for “How Can I?” When we assume that something is possible, we can move our energy into how to make it so.

Where are you spinning your wheels to convince yourself to move forward? What if you knew it was a possible and it was just a question of what to do next? What will you do now?
