Lately, my legions of fans keep asking me why I’m not posting. So, I thought I’d address that quickly I’m working on my new book Law of Attract This! (Insert awesome subtitle here that’ll promptly make you want to buy this book right now–it’s magnetic).
Who knows when I’ll ever finish, but even an unfinished copy is bound to rival Dianetics in sheer confusion yet awesomeness.
But I took a break today to get some inspiration, and as loyal DSP readers know, the best place to look for inspiration is from people who make a living inspiring others. A quick search on the net and I came across some quote from one of our favorite guys–Anthony “Tony” Robbins.
To dude’s a quote factory. He’s so good at it that he quotes himself in his own books. How’s that for awesome? So, the DSP staff gathered some of our favorite Anthony Robbins quotes and pondered their significance in the universe.
“If you can’t you must, and if you must you can.”
And if you musn’t, then you cannot?
“Success in life is the result of good judgment. Good judgment is usually the result of experience. Experience is usually the result of bad judgment.”
So, I learn from my mistakes? Is that it?
“You can’t have a plan for your day, ‘til you have a plan for your life.”
So, does this mean I can’t do my shopping until I figure out what I want out of life. If so, I think I’ll starve.
“Focus equals feeling.”
But my feeling is a little out of focus
“For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.”
But what if they’re bad changes?
“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”
But what if I like what I’m getting?
“In life you need either inspiration or desperation.”
Or it leads to constipation!
“It not knowing what to do, it’s doing what you know.”
How do you do what you know without first knowing what to do?
“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”
Damn straight, Tony…death won’t let us do any of those things.
“People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that do not inspire them.”
My goal is to get a whole lot of money for doing nothing. It inspires me.
“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”
But what if it’s a BAD decision?
“The meeting of preparation with opportunity generates the offspring we call luck.”
So, how do I prepare to be born into a fabulously wealthy family?
“There is no such thing as failure. There are only results.”
And one of those results is failure!
“Most people fail in life because they major in minor things.”
Hey, what’s going on here. I thought there was no failure?
“I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.”
Why does he keep talking about failure? It was only results.
“You always succeed in producing a result.”
I get it now. Even if I fail, I succeeded because I produced a result, which is failure. And even though it’s failure, it’s still a result. And if producing results makes me successful, then even producing the result of failure makes me successful. It’s all clear to me now!
