Robbins Purpose Winning – Living Your Purpose and Winning at the Game of Life. You grow in environments in which you can’t control everything. Not getting your goal is part of the design. You expand when demands are put upon you. God’s delays are not God’s denials. How do you have a sense of certainty in a world in which everything is changing? 8:10 You cannot control events. However, you can control what events mean to you. Don’t let nervous system make connections that are false. Are you driven by guilt or your past? What’s directing the meaning you pull from life? Is it a sense of purpose? 10:15 The mind looks for the source of pain. This system can be misguided. A woman made the connection “marriage” links up with “death.” The mind says the cause pain is “men” and trusting. So the mind says
Tony relates a touching personal story about Becky’s father:
So the mind says “If you trust, you die.” 16:40 Distraction does not create a life of significance. Discover the meaning of your life. Use pain and pleasure to be more. A compelling future enhances life and gives life meaning. How are you going to live while you are here? You can’t control an event, but you can direct your mind. 32:10 What’s most important in your life? Do it now. There are only so many tomorrows. Decide consciously what you want your life to be about. We spend most of our lives in process toward goals. Enjoy the process and appreciate along the way. 35:25 Are you being efficient or being effective? What’s the purpose of your life? You are here for a reason. Who do you become as a person? What do you contribute? A life of significance is one of growth and contribution.
Robbins Purpose Winning: Ask and trust your instinct
38:10 Life is about being and doing. Many never feel fulfilled in life because they don’t know the purpose of the game. What do you really want? 39:40 People have lots of rules about how the game of life is to be played. And they have lots of rules for others. We get upset because of our rules. Whatever is going on that violates our rules, there may be other things going on as well. 41:55 The rules may be in conflict. This leads to pain and frustration. Even when you play by the rules, you don’t always win. How can I use this? What else can this mean? Sometimes you break the rules and you win. However, this takes you away from your higher purpose. 44:25 In order to win, you have to work with lots of other people who don’t have the same rules. Most people fail because they think it’s a life or death game.
Robbins Purpose Winning: This is not a practice session
However, don’t stress! 45:40 Decide what the purpose of the game is, at least for right now. All decision-making is value clarification. Have fewer rules. Make your rules consistent. Give yourself pleasure when you win even if the world does not. Acknowledge yourself. When you screw up and violate something that’s a value, give yourself a short burst of pain! Know that other people will have different rules than yours. Life has a purpose. However, don’t take it too seriously. Why do angels fly? They take themselves lightly. 49:40 What do you want to be when you grow up? Write it down. Why did you want to be that? What were the feelings you hoped it would give you? 53:55 Even you are not doing the thing you intended, you might be doing it in a different way and experiencing the same emotion.
Robbins Purpose Winning: Know the essence of your purpose
Re-experience the feelings of a time when “you were on a roll.” What was your state of mind? State your purpose in positive terms. How you are going to be as a person? Say it out loud. You are not supposed to be perfect. Instead, be excellent. Keep your purpose statement in front of you. Principles don’t change. What’s inside of you does not change. 1:01:10 Very often, not getting your dream gives you your destiny. Find an empowering meaning. Every human experience supports us. Look for benefits and you will find it. Tony tells the story of “Field of Dreams.” If what you have done hasn’t worked, it is just preparing you for more. Be one of the few who do instead of one of the many who talk.
