Leaders Read#21



👋 Hello everyone,

Here are a couple of posts you might have missed:


 

📚 Book Summary:

This week's book is "Awaken the Giant Within" by Tony Robbins.


You should read this book if you are looking for a book that provides the tools to take control of your mind, figure out what you want in life, how to succeed, and how to get there. Awaken the Giant Within taught me how much I control my outcomes, whether it is influencing the people around me or the success of my work. The book is excellent at helping you take control of how you want your life and how to deal with people and emotions.


One of my favorite take away from the book is this:

"Most people never feel secure because they are always worried that they will either lose their job, lose the money they already have, lose their spouse, lose their health, and so on. The only true security in life comes from knowing that every single day, you are improving yourself in a way, increasing the caliber of who you are, and being valuable to your company, your friends, and your family. I don't worry about maintaining the quality of my life because every day, I work on improving it. I constantly strive to learn and to make new and more powerful distinctions about ways to add value to other people's lives. This gives me a sense of certainty that I can always learn, continually expand and always grow."


✅ Actionable advice:

'As you may have guessed, the challenge is that most of us are on automatic pilot. By failing to consciously control the habitual questions we ask, we severely limit our emotional range and, thus, our ability to utilize the resources at hand. The solution? The first step is to become aware of what you want and discover your old limiting pattern.

Get leverage: ask yourself, "If I don't change this, what is the ultimate price? What will this cost me in the long run?" and "How will my whole life be transformed if I did this right now?"'
