Awaken The Giant Within
by Anthony Robbins
I have a soft spot for Tony Robbins. I read this book and implemented its lessons in my life in my early twenties. In many ways he was my virtual coach in my pocket. I will always be grateful!
It's hard to believe that this book celebrated its 25th year with a re-write. I love this quote:
- "Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives. Controlled focus is like a laser beam that can cut through anything that seems to be stopping you. When we focus consistently on improvement in any area, we develop unique distinctions on how to make that area better. One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular. In fact, I believe most people fail in life simply because they major in minor things. I believe that one of life’s major lessons is learning to understand what makes us do what we do. What shapes human behavior? The answers to this question provide critical keys to shaping your own destiny."
Even if you read the book years ago it might be time to re-read it and find out what jumps out at this season of you life. The book is available as a free pdf below.
