There are two types of people:
1. Those who get results and
2. those with stories about why they didn’t achieve what they wanted.
Although we can’t control the events that happen in our lives, we can control how we respond to them. It’s these choices that we make—especially during challenging times when many things seem impossible—that define us.
The people who get results—the leaders and the innovators in this world—are defined by one thing: Leaders show everyone that the impossible is, in fact, possible.
When that happens, it’s called a breakthrough.
“There is a powerful dividing force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream or desire a reality.”
Thomas Edison was a man built for breakthroughs. He burned with the passion to create things that no one had before. It took him countless tries to discover the filament—made from Japanese bamboo—that made electric light possible. Lesser men would have given up, but Edison dreamed of a world lit by electricity. He persisted, and his breakthrough made him a household name, revolutionizing our lives by adding hours to our day.
Breakthroughs are the reason people succeed and companies thrive, no matter what’s going on around them.
So how do you create your own breakthrough? It takes a certain chemistry:
1.The first thing it takes is satiation. Plain and simple, you’ve had enough. Enough of your financial problems, enough of your uninspiring career, enough of that extra 20 pounds you’ve been carrying around.
2. The second thing is dissatisfaction. Whatever you’re doing doesn’t work for you anymore. Maybe it’s not profitable and maybe it’s not fun. Maybe you’re tired of not having the energy you know you need to accomplish your desired result.Your current approach might have been successful in the past, but it hasn’t adapted to your current conditions.
3. Third is, you get to a threshold where change becomes a “must”—you’re facing bankruptcy, for example, defeat simply isn’t an option or you’re having a health challenge.
4. Fourth, you get an insight and that creates an opening.
5. Finally, in the fifth stage—and this is the most important—you step through the opening.
One moment is all it takes. One insight. One conversation. One decision. One idea. One step. Step up with the Hour of Power, available for you at http://www.tonyrobbins.com/hour-of-power.
“No matter who you are—no matter how successful; no matter how happy—Tony has something to offer you.”
