You Are What You Think – Check Yourself

“You Are What You Think” Exampleyou are what you think

Do you believe that you are what you think? If so, then you better check yourself to make sure that you are thinking your way to success and not failure. You need to remember that if you are what you think, you better be aware of what you are focusing on! Your ability to reach your goals and objectives will increase dramatically once you are what you think. Let’s look at how Tony Robbins describes this way of thinking.

Having a clear result or outcome and consistently focusing on it immediately changes your behavior.

For example, can you remember the last time you were caught up in an argument? Maybe you forgot what you were even arguing about—yet you knew inside you had to win! What if, in the middle of that argument, you asked yourself, “What result do I really want from this?” You would have realized that your outcome was not to argue, but to create a resolution. This simple shift in focus would have immediately changed the direction of the communication, and would have likely moved you from a state of arguing toward a focus on resolution.

Remember: Whatever you focus on, you will feel and experience at a stronger level. If you focus on why you have so many problems in your life, you will surely be able to come up with a long list of reasons. If you focus on all the activities that are keeping you busy, you’ll find yourself continuously adding more and more to your list.

Focus on the results you are committed to, and you’ll find yourself consistently moving toward the result you’re after—and very often accomplishing them with a much shorter to-do list than you expected.” Tony Robbins via the Change Your Life Now Blog
