I think we all are looking, to varying degrees, for a breakthrough of some sort.
We want an epiphany—a point in time where we can make the conscious decision to reject the status quo as we move forward.
To decide that where we are is not where we want to be.
We can achieve whatever we want if we have the capacity to dream, envision, create a plan and have the work ethic to achieve it.
I attended a Tony Robbins’ “Unleash the Power Within” conference and have been coaching with his organization.
I follow Robbins closely and really value his leadership and pioneering work in the field. So much so, that I want to share Tony’s 3 steps to achieving a breakthrough:
Change your strategy.
The best mindset can’t overcome a bad plan. As Tony Robbins says:
Running east looking for a sunset, I don’t care how positive you are, I don’t care how hard you work at it, it’s not going to work, it’s the wrong strategy.
He suggests you find people who’ve achieved turnarounds and transformations and study what went right.
Change your story.
Common excuses like “I’m just not good at relationships” or “Only those born rich get richer” are the stories we tell ourselves that keep us from implementing our goals.
Robbins says we must divorce ourselves from stories that limit us in order to unlock our true potential.
Change your state.
If you’re constantly stressed, overwhelmed or frustrated, you won’t have the fuel to implement your goals. Instead, you’ll develop a disempowering story, telling yourself that nothing can change and that nothing works.
Find a way to recharge.
Your mental and emotional state determines your perception of life and is essential to any breakthrough.
That’s how you begin to create a breakthrough starting right now!
“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” —Jim Rohn
Breakthroughs come from a change in strategy, story, and state of mind.
How do you tell your story? Is your mindset a negative or positive one? Self-reflection on your strategy, story and mindset will help you see changes you need to make.
Where did you have a breakthrough today? What friction did you push past to win the day?
