Tony Robbins- What they don’t teach you about FEAR
This makes 2 Tony Robbin’s Posts in a row BUT they are that good and THAT important!
What would you do if you knew that you couldn’t fail? That is a question that I have heard many motivational experts repeatedly ask their crowds. It seems like a really basic question right? But is it?
Personally, I think that it is a really STUPID question. Let’s be real, EVERYBODY fails, EVERYBODY! FAILURE is inevitable. Failure WILL happen. Failure is basically guaranteed.
Now as some of you are reading this, you may be thinking that I am being very negative but I am not. I am simply being real. When a baby learns to walk, he or she will fall many, many times. When a child begins to read, they will stutter and mispronounce words. When a musician learns a new instrument they will struggle to learn the notes. At any point they could allow those mistakes to become the reason that they fail and quit trying or they can use their mistakes and failures to be the foundation for getting better.
Like I said, EVERYBODY will fail. That is guaranteed. So if I am right and failure is inevitable, how is it that we are surrounded by success stories. People like Bill Gates, Taylor Swift, Peyton Manning or Michael Jordan? It is because each of these people, just like EVERY other successful person, knew the magic behind failure. They all knew that in order to succeed they would have to fail, hundreds or even thousands of times. Successful people accept failure as part of the journey. Successful people learn from their mistakes and get better. Successful people NEVER allow FAILURE to stop them because for them success was a CERTAINTY and for that reason, they never stopped following through.
So they next time some someone asks you what you would do if you knew you couldn’t fail, ask yourself this question instead. “What would I do if I knew I would NEVER give up and that success was CERTAIN?”
I hope that you have a great day!
