When you start a USANA business your life will suddenly be filled with opportunities to meet gobs of influential people, so I was ecstatic to have the chance hear Tony Robbins live at convention this year.
Besides being highly motivational, inspiring and very direct he was also compassionate. His session for me was a very emotional journey that allowed me to explore the beliefs and emotions that are controlling my life.
Never before have I been in a room with such incredible intensity. In between jumping, screaming, dancing, hugging and kissing the people around me I somehow managed to take quite a few pages of notes. I re-read them for this blog post and have circled a few take-aways:
It is not our ability that stops us from achieving it is the state we have learned to live in. Our emotions control and determine the quality of our lives. We can change our emotions, or our state, immediately by changing our physical posture- the way we hold our body, the way we breathe, use our face etc. The mind will follow whatever state your physical body is in, not vice versa. Remember, emotion is created by motion!
Most of us have limiting beliefs or “stories” that do not serve us. In our USANA business these are things that we tell ourselves that hold us back from reaching our goals. Perhaps you have a story that you don’t have the time to raise a family and run a business, or you don’t have the right qualifications, or you’re too young for people to take you seriously. The good news is once you have identified what your “stories” are things can change in an instant because we have the POWER to change our stories. In the words of Tony Robbins “ Divorce your story and marry the truth!”
Build a personal brand with satisfied, loyal customers by adding value to people in a way no one else can. Do something for others that no one else is doing. Do it more than anyone else. Do it when we don’t feel like it. Do it when it’s inconvenient. When you feel like you have nothing to give, that is the exact time to give.
This only scratches the surface of what I learned from Tony Robbins, he shared so much more. Thank you USANA for providing us with such an incredible opportunity, at this point in my USANA career his session was truly a gift to me. Until next year, lets stay Ignited!
