“Awaken the Giant Within” Still Working Since 1991…

Awaken the Giant Within: How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Destiny

Open Discussion on the Book Written by Anthony Robbins

Tuesday evening 03.13.12 at 7

Greetings All,

So we honored the introvert and discussed the amazing powers associated with them last week. We also agreed that those looking to push their careers forward and improve their game had probably best learn to shine as brightly as possible in the now. So we look now at the far opposite end of the spectrum and focus on Anthony Robbins. Tony is probably one of the most extroverted personal coaches alive today. Yet Mr. Robbins is not trying to turn everyone into a raving extrovert. He does believe that it is human nature to want to want “more” in the widest definition of “more.” In his “Unlimited Power” presentations he acknowledges that many may not feel like always expressing raving zeal and outward elation but that it is “still okay to feel good about yourself and to want more out of life.” This is not a new book; it has been in print continuously since 1991.

The ideas ensconced in “Awaken the Giant Within” are not vague and ethereal theories. They are reasonably conservative strategies marinated with a healthy dose of cheer-leading to elevate the attitude and enliven the heart. The audio versions are exquisite. This book has sold millions of copies and is available in many countries and languages. Robbins will not appeal to everyone and there is no shortage of gurus available. “Awaken the Giant Within” is possibly the best system for the individual that requires an ongoing relationship with an organization that can provide accountability, focus, and a wide variety of tools to choose from. The applause of fans easily drowns out his naysayers. His content is compelling and warrants careful consideration. He has been slow to write new books as he feels that “nobody reads books anymore” and he prefers the personal high of dealing directly with followers during workshops and conventions with the music cranked and the crowds dancing. A wide variety of videos are available as well.

Anthony Robbins declared to Larry King that “retooling is not an option in the world today.” What is an option is whether or not you embrace that change or writhe in resistance. The choice is yours. Personally, the ideas suggested by Tony challenge and intrigue me though I probably won’t be doing one of his fire walks.

“Giant” Points for Discussion:

  • Do you have a “magnificent obsession?”
  • What are “disempowering questions” and why would they be so?
  • What is a “habitual vocabulary?” and is it good or bad?
  • How do “incantations” differ from “affirmations?”
  • How is “concentration of power” achieved and why?
  • Do you much ponder “destiny?” Or lunch?
  • How much “massive pain” is “massive pain?”
  • What is meant by “personal compass?”
  • Can you really “change anything?”
  • Do “we all have dreams” as Robbins claims?
  • Could you “optimize” your game or are you at your “peak?”
  • How “habitual” is your life?
  • How to you move into a “peak state?”
  • What does it mean to “pattern interrupt?”
  • Can you make huge differences with “tiny changes?”

“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.”  – Michael Landon
