Ep 113: What Tony Robbins Taught Me About Weight Loss

Tony Robbins is one of the world’s greatest teachers. He’s a motivational speaker, yes, but he’s far more than that. He’s a coach. He helps people find their own power. He guides people out of their self-imposed darkness and helps them reach their highest potential.

Obviously, I’m a fan. I’ve read his books, taken his courses and attended his seminars. In today’s episode I’m going to share with you what Tony Robbins taught me about weight loss.

In fairness, I wasn’t exposed to Tony’s teachings until well into my weight loss journey but I am certain I wouldn’t be who I am today without the things I’ve learned from his books, programs and seminars.

What Tony Robbins Taught Me About Weight Loss

  1. I need a positive, productive focus & an effective strategy
    1. Specific
    2. Compelling
    3. Within my control
  2. Being overweight was giving me something. I was getting something out of it. Overeating and sabotaging my success was providing me something I kept seeking. I’d need to identify the need it was filling in my life and find a more constructive way to fill that need.
  3. I can’t find happiness within my comfort zone. It’s a lie. It’s a trap I was caught in.
  4. I was using food as an escape. Running never leads to resolution.
  5. All of my decisions were primed by my state. I can control my state at any time with things like:
    1. My breathing
    2. My outfit
    3. My posture
    4. My facial expressions
    5. My words
  6. I am in control of my emotions. Not taking control of my emotions will prevent me from ever taking control of my food choices & my body.
