Seven Key Lessons from The Book

Key quotes from “Awaken the Giant Within” by Tony Robbins:

1. Concentration of power. “Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives”. (p.21)

2. The power of decision. “I made a decision in that moment, which was to alter my life forever. I decided to change virtually every aspect of my life. I decided I would never again settle for less than I could be” (p.21)

3. The importance of standards. “If you don’t set a baseline standard for what you’ll accept in your life, you’ll find that it’s easy to slip into behaviours and attitudes or a quality of life that’s far below what you deserve”.

4. The power of focus. Whatever we focus on becomes our idea of reality (p.160)

5. The power of belief. Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy (p. 75)

6. The power of questions. “Questions are the answer”. If you throw enough questions at a problem, you will get a solution. (p.177)

7. The simple formula for success: Raise your standards, change your limiting beliefs and change your strategy (p. 25)

2.The Alchemist
My Second favorite book, The Alchemist, written by my favorite writer Paulo Coelho, is a beautiful Fable about following your dreams. I love this book with all my heart. The gift I am sharing with you today is my favorite quotes from this inspiring and enlightening book.

“Every search begins with beginners luck and ends with the victor’s being severely tested.” By Paulo Coelho

“The Boy didn’t know what a person’s ‘destiny’ was… It’s what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young knows what their destiny is.” page 22

“The boy and his heart had become friends, and neither was capable now of betraying the other.” The Alchemist

“Treasure is uncovered by the force of the flowing water, and it is buried by the same currents” page 25

“When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.” page 28

“In order to find the treasure, you will have to follow the omens. God has prepared a path for everyone to follow. You just have to read the omens that he left you.” page 30

“Don’t forget that everything you deal with is only one thing and nothing else. And don’t forget the language of omens. And, above all, don’t forget to follow your destiny through to its conclusion.” The Alchemist page 32

“When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision. “ The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“Intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“Courage is the quality most essential to understanding the Language of the World. “ The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” The Alchemist, page 23, by Paulo Coelho

“When you want something with all your heart, that’s when you are closest to the Soul of the World. It’s always a positive force.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” Page 11

“When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“When you are in love, things make even more sense, he thought.”

“The soul of the world is nourished by people’s happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy, and jealousy. To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only obligation. All things are one.” The Alchemist p. 23 by Paulo Coelho

“I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living now.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“When you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there’s no need at all to understand what’s happening, because everything happens within you.”

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.” You’ve got to find the treasure, so that everything you have learned along the way can make sense. “

“All you have to do is contemplate a simple grain of sand, and you will see in it all the marvels of creation. Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World, and it will one day return there.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“In his pursuit of the dream, he was being constantly subjected to tests of his persistence and courage. So he could not be hasty, nor impatient. If he pushed forward impulsively, he would fail to see the signs and omens left by God along his path.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“The alchemists spent years in their laboratories, observing the fire that purified the metals. They spent so much time close to the fire that gradually they gave up the vanities of the world. They discovered that the purification of the metals had led to a purification of themselves.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“I learned that the world has a soul, and that whoever understands that soul can also understand the language of things. I learned that many alchemists realized their destinies, and wound up discovering the Soul of the World, the Philosopher’s Stone, and the Elixir of Life. But above all, I learned that these things are all so simple they could be written on the surface of an emerald.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“The boy reached through to the Soul of the World, and saw that it was part of the Soul of God. And he saw that the Soul of God was his own soul. And that he, a boy, could perform miracles.” The Alchemist page 160
