By now more than half of my farm work for my second year visa in Australia is done. It's already been a great experience showing me so much what I don't want in life: What's the point of having a full time job working for money, hardly enjoying it and wasting your life away while there are millions of ways making money work for you? There are ways to create the life you want to live, living in pleasure and happiness, being surrounded by beautiful people and living every moment. Guess where it all starts? That's right, in your head and with the way you communicate with yourself and others. A big thank you goes to @tonyrobbins today for being so extremely motivational and truely life changing 🙌🏻☀️ Watch: @wellymerck #tonyrobbins#wellymerck#farmlife#secondyearvisa
Almost exactly four months ago, I fulfilled one of my dreams - to go see Tony Robbins. Unleash Your Power Within event was pretty powerful and a great way to kick off a new year. You can find out more about this experience on my blog (link in the bio) 👀 #tonyrobbins#upw2018#singapore
From Tony Robbins’ ‘Unleash the Power Within’ where he speaks about habits changing and forming. Regardless what you may think of the man and his, what some may say, over-the-top personality, he hits the nail on the head with this topic.
To put it simply, many of us severely limit ourselves, purely because we believe we are something, when in reality we are just the sum of all of our habits. If we are able to change our habits, we can change ourselves!
The problem is that many of us are so attached to our habits, we let them form our identity without ever really stopping to think…. Is this the person I want to be?
Is this how I want to feel?
Does this habit serve a purpose to me?
Am I acting with intention or out of habit?
A good measure of this is to distinguish your identity.
I know, you’re probably like what is this ‘whoo-whoo’ crap you’re talking about! Buttttt I’m serious and this actually has helped sooo many people I’ve worked with. I mean think about it, have you ever actually sat down and written out on paper who you want to be?! The first time I did this about 3 years ago, I was baffled because who I realized I was in that moment was not who I wanted to be. But taking the first step to becoming aware of that is the most important step you can take. From there it’s all math… just reverse engineering! You see where you want to be, and then you look at each habit it takes to get there.
In my mind it would go something like this…
I SAY: “I WANT TO BE THE BEST COACH POSSIBLE, ALWAYS ENERGETIC AND CONFIDENT”
I ASK: “SO WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE?” I ANSWER: “IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE WHO MOVES QUICKLY, WALKS UPRIGHT, SMILES AT EVERYONE, AND IS INCREDIBLY KNOWLEDGEABLE.” . .
