How Tony Robbins Sets Goals – Final Review

February 19, 2011

As the late Michael Jackson said, “This is it”, which was a prophetic statement in many ways! That being said, this is it. This is the review of the goal setting seminar. I hope you enjoyed the content, but  more importantly, I hope you are applying it!

My friend Gene is an expert in his field and currently works as a consultant with Tony Robbins and Chet Holmes. Gene teaches individuals how to use the art of persuasion as a sales tool. What does that mean? Every business deal, including “Job Interviewing” is a sales situation, an opportunity to sale yourself. Many of us don’t like to refer to  ourselves as  sales people, but we are!

If you know anything about children, they are some of the best sales people ever! They are relentless and won’t take no for an answer.

Now – let’s review the top distinctions from the past 6 weeks that Gene gave us:

1. Know what you want – decide where you want to go.

o   95% of Americans don’t have written goals.

o   Without aim we drift

o    Reticular Activation System (RAS), part of brain that help convert images to reality.

2. Make sure you’re why is strong enough!

o   When we ask ourselves the right questions, we come up with the best “Why’s”. Why I should have my dream job. Why I need to find a job that I am passionate about? Why I need t o be fulfilled in my career?

3. Take Action – Action is the key!

o   The law of attraction is an amazing thing – it got a lot of attention in the early 2000’s.

o   The biggest thing many people didn’t do was “TAKE ACTION”. It’s one thing to imagine what you want, however, there are physical laws in our universe that require action.

o   Action equals motion, motion equals results!

4. People are rewarded in public for the things they practice the most in private.

o   The best in the world do the hard things behind the scenes so that when they show up they are on!

o   What are you doing in private for your career or job search?

o   Are you doing the things the unsuccessful people don’t do?

o    Are you doing the necessary work – be on the look out, your success may be wearing overalls!

5. You have to Constantly MEASURE YOUR RESULTS!

o   You must use your Sensory Acuity

o    Step out – Reevaluate your – Make the changes

6. Model the best!

o   Find someone that has achieved the outcome you want to achieve.

o   Buy someone a cup of coffee or lunch and interview them on “How they do what they do”.

o   Successful people apply the right information in the right order.

There you have it! This formula is GUARANTEED to create success if you use it. As Gene said, you MUST put the information to use – you must take ACTION in order for the information to pay dividends.

Here is another amazing testimonial from Michael Jordan:

It’s that simple. Now, I’d like to challenge you to use this information in your life over the next week. Create a plan of action and let me know how you are progressing!

• Please post a note to let me know what you think about the information and how you are using it.
• Join my Dream Job University Group on
•Also visit my new site and let me know what you think!
• If you’d like to do any of the programs for free – ask your college to purchase a bulk membership to give its students and alumni. After all, you paid a lot for your education – right!

May you live the life that you dream, on earth as it is in heaven…

What’s your Story?

May 28, 2010

Ok, this is going to be short, but sweet! I had a conversation with a good friend of mine recently and the conversation triggered my awareness to something that is LIFE CHANGING IMPORTANT! Often times in life we have two modes; that of feeling good or great, and that of not feeling good (some would call that state feeling bad).

In our conversation, I made a huge distinction and that is, often time when we are feeling good or great it’s because our INTERNAL STORY that we are telling ourselves is a good story. Good feelings emanate, the sun is shining and there’s not a worry in the world.

However, when our INTERNAL STORY is not so good or (bad), we have the tendency to focus on what’s going wrong, how things aren’t working, how we are running out of cash, how bad the job market is, how the world is going to end by 2012…. You get the point.

This is all driven by our INTERNAL DIALOGUE. I go into more detail on this topic and the psychology of why this occurs in my book, “How to Find Your Dream Job, Even in A Recession”.

Anyway, the morale to this STORY is that I hope you are now aware of the stories you are telling yourself each day – this is the one thing that determines how you feel and WHAT YOU GET OUT OF LIFE EVERYDAY.

Until we meet again.

No Plan, No Goals, No Vision!!!

April 10, 2010

Ok, if you’ve followed me at all, you’ll know that I am way overdue for a blog! In fact, this is my first blog in 2010 and we’re already in April, OMG!!!

Now, you may or may not ask, what happened and where have you been. So the short story is, that I’ve been resting my brain and getting refocused. The long story is more interesting.

For any of you who know me or have seen me speak, you’ll know that I’m fairly energetic (without coffee). I usually have my goals set and my vision in focus by December of every year so that I can come into the New Year kickin’ butt and taking names.

But, not this year, actually, it’s the first time in almost 15 years that I haven’t done my usual process… Why? Because I needed rest. In 2008 I wrote my first book, “How to Find Your Dream Job, Even in a Recession” and built the e-learning system that accompanies the book all in the same year!

In 2009, I started the process of marketing and speaking to promote my efforts. I spent an entire year learning more about social media marketing, being on radio shows and travelling to speak at any place that would have me. Mind you, I did all of this while volunteering at my kids school, cleaning house, doing laundry (including folding), cooking, shopping and being a good husband (my wife gets a cup of tea in bed everyday – during the week and Saturday’s).

What does all this have to do with goals or plans? A lot. Here’s what I noticed has been going on with myself. After re-inventing myself due to the market change and life changes necessary, I had to create a whole new direction for my career, which was documented in my book.

At the end of this two your extensive process, I’ve need to rejuvenate, which is a natural process for all living things. The challenge is that many times we do not honor the body and it’s need to rejuvenate, thus, we continue forcing ourselves to keep going. The story that we have to make money is one of the biggest things we tell ourselves to keep us moving.

Truth be told is that when you need to rest the brain and or the body, it has a way to get your attention. Sometimes they even make us sick in order to get our attention so that we’ll slow down a little. When that happens, the money story becomes null and void – you must slow down and rejuvenate.

We’ll here it is April 11th and while I’ve been rejuvenating, I’ve still been actively involved in re-visioning my life. This is part of the dream job vision process that I teach in my online course. Yes, even I have to do what I teach and it works!

So far this year, I’ve worked with Mr. Cesar Millan (Dog Whisperer), Don Miguel Ruiz (Author of The Four Agreements and The Fifth Agreement), Carlos Santana, Eckhart Tolle, and some others.

I only say this to let you know that my dreams are also important as I blaze the trail to help people achieve their dreams, even in a down economy.

So, as I rejuvenate and recalibrate, my new vision is starting to arise from the rest that I’ve allowed and my goals are starting to make sense again. So the moral of this story is, it’s ok to not set goals or have a plan; sometimes its necessary to listen to your internal voice, which is your instinctual self.

Take time to listen to that voice daily; it’s truly a gift from the universe that many of us don’t utilize, but it is your compass in life if you honor it. My friend Cesar Millan speaks about the Instinctual nature of people in all of his books and in his work as The Dog Whisperer, I encourage you to listen to what he has to say, because it’s not just about dogs.
