Think BiG Thoughts No.13

Tony RobbinsThe secret to success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you.
If you do that, you’re in control of your life.
If you don’t, life controls you.

~ Tony Robbins

 

There are only two things that motivate us;

Moving towards pleasure or moving away from pain.

Of course, pain and pleasure are not absolutes. They operate on a sliding scale. At one end of the scale, pain might be as simple as feeling a little uncomfortable or awkward. At the other end it could be a feeling of complete terror or excruciating physical pain – or the fear of those things.

The truth is, if the pain of taking the actions we need to take to reach our goals is greater than the perceived pleasure we’ll get from achieving them, we won’t do what’s necessary.

Tony reminds us that we can use both pain and pleasure to pull us in the direction of our goals.

And if you’re not sure how to do that ….. ask me.

Remember: If you’re going to think, you might as well Think BiG!

Have a great day,
