As Tony Robbins explains it in his book, “Awaken the Giant Within”:
“It’s not the events that shape my life that determine how I feel and act, but rather, it’s the way I interpret and evaluate my life experiences.”
“All your emotions are nothing but biochemical storms in your brain, and you are in control of them at any moment in time. You can feel ecstasy right now, or you can feel pain or depression or overwhelmed - it’s all up to you.”
“You don’t need any special reason to feel good - you can just decide to feel good right now, simply because you’re alive, simply because you want to.”
What you choose to think about doesn’t directly affect the results you can achieve. But what you think about affects how you feel and how you feel affects how you perform. Feeling confident, motivated, and optimistic can help you perform at your best.
Fortunately, you don’t have to only think about your current status in life in order to achieve a productive state of mind. You can choose to think about what empowers you and use persuasive strategies to make sure these thoughts have a meaningful impact on your thinking.
It’s easy to believe that we make all of our decisions based on sound facts and reasoning. It’s harder to admit that we, at times, think irrationally. However, we’re all susceptible to cognitive biases that result from the way our brains have evolved. But while this may seem like a disadvantage, it can actually be an advantage. By influencing our interpretation of reality, we can improve our ability to perform in challenging situations, such as at work, while public speaking, or in team sports.
