OMG. I was just typing the previous post and was listening to a recording by Tony Robbins. This was what he was saying at the point in time - roughly.
"Our life is not controlled by the external environment, it certainly can affect us.... 3 decisions:
1. What are you going to focus on? Are you going to focus on what you can't control or what you can control? If you keep focusing on what you can't control, i know you're going to be scared, angry or depressed...Instead, focus on what you can control - focus on the past of what you've lost, or the present that you need to take advantage of or the future that you can create. Focus is power! Whatever you focus on you are going to feel. Focus on what you want.
2. What does this mean? The end or beginning? Punishment or Reward? You decide. Meaning produces emotion. Crisis is a crisis of emotion. Art of fulfillment. What we do is shaped by what we feel and what we feel comes from the meaning we make up.
3. What are you going to do?"
He talked for a long time - but this part attracted me to listen closer. Have a read and see if this passage helped you to learn anything or helped you in any way. =)
Give and you shall receive.
