The Secret to Living is Giving – Anthony Robbins
I’ve never heard Anthony Robbins speak before.
Sure, I know who he is. Who hasn’t heard of Tony Robbins?
And because so many of the successful people I’ve studied have learned from him, I am familiar with many of the concepts he teaches. But last night I listened to Jay Abraham interview Anthony Robbins and I began to really appreciate his teaching.
As a real estate investor, understanding how to influence other people is important.
Being an excellent communicator and negotiator is critical to success. And these are subjects that were covered in detail in this interview. Tony covered the 6 needs that every human being has, the 2 main things that will impact whether you can influence somebody or not and the one thing that separates successful people from everyone else.
It’s an exceptional interview, and since it’s free I highly recommend you download your own version right here:
But if you aren’t interested in listening to the 2 hour interview, I thought I would share a few of the key things I learned from the call:
- To influence someone you need to know what influences them already. But your ability to influence them will depend on the emotional state they are in and their personal blueprint. So, sometimes you need to be able to change the emotional state they are in otherwise you won’t be able to influence them at all.
- Focus on what you can control, not on what you can’t control. There are so many powerful examples of how this applies to real estate investing … for example, you can’t control the market and you can’t control the psychology of the people in the market, but you can control how you utilize the conditions to your advantage. You can control the strategies you use in different conditions and the places you choose to invest in.
- To be successful you have to be specific and clear and you have to focus on what you want. But, positive thinking and focus are not enough for success. You have to make sure your goal is compelling and exciting. It’s what I said last week after Engage Today – you have to find the bigger WHY behind what your are doing. THAT will ensure you’re successful. When what you are after is exciting and compelling … that will get you up at 6am 7 days a week. I know … when once I used to hit snooze until 8am I now have no problems waking up … even on a Sunday. In fact, sometimes I go to bed already excited to wake up the next morning!!
If you haven’t achieved the success you want in your life, ask yourself: Who has a piece of the puzzle I am missing?
Then go out and learn from them!
