Tony Robbins Success Formula
- Determine your outcome - You must make a decision. You must decide on what you want. If you don't get clear on where you're going, the chances of your getting there are rather slim.
"Begin with the end in mind."
- Take action - You must make a second decision and decide to make a change. Many of us will not do this due to fear. Don't fall into that trap. Decide to act anyway.
- Notice what is working - Know what results you're getting. Continue to monitor your results and adjust your actions if needed in order to get the results you want.
- Choose a role model - Accelerate your progress towards success by modeling those who are already successful. It's much easier to copy what someone else has already done. What's even better, is you can then improve upon what someone has done and achieve better results, often in a shorter period of time.
