1. Learn How to Handle Frustration
Frustration happens when there is an obstacle in your path to your goal. You don’t know how to handle it, so you feel frustrated. It’s important to handle frustration, because if you don’t learn it, then it becomes more difficult to change your condition into a better one.
Anthony Robbins writes: “Frustration can change a positive attitude into a negative one, an empowering state into a crippling one”. When you feel frustrated, you become less powerful because you spend energy to feel the frustration.
Tony Robbins says you can handle frustration by getting more frustration. Your ability to handle frustration increases with each one you get. The more you are able to handle frustration, the more success you can achieve.
It doesn’t mean to stack frustration and get stuck. It means to dissolve frustration by understanding there’s no need to feel bad about it. Work on handling the obstacle in your way, and then you will stop feeling frustrated as the obstacle gets smaller.
Tony also recommends to change frustration into fascination. Train your mind to frame your frustration, and be fascinated that you can learn new things from your frustration.
2. Learn How to Handle Rejection
“Rejection is the number one emotion most people will do anything to avoid,” writes Tony.
Rejection is correlated to success. There is no path to success that doesn’t involve rejection, especially when you are still navigating through the path. The more rejection you get, the clearer vision you have of the map to your goal.
To handle rejection, don’t allow it to have an impact on you. The word “no” itself is neutral, only you determine whether it has a negative or a positive meaning. You can see it as a dead-end wall that makes you stuck, or revealing a part of the map so you know where to go.
Persistence implies that if you keep going after being rejected, you will eventually find someone who agrees. Therefore, accept rejection because that’s how you will find success.
3. Get Help With Your Money Problems
It’s not about how much money you have, it’s about how you manage it.
There is a funny story in The Richest Man in Babylon by George Clason.
In it, a group of men gather every end of the month to share their financial condition. They realized that no matter how much money some of them made and how little some of them made, everybody ran out of money by the end of the month.
To handle your money problems, you need to learn financial management.
Tony writes, “Handling financial pressure means knowing how to get and knowing how to give, knowing how to earn and knowing how to save.”
A simple rule from The Richest Man in Babylon is to take 10% of your income and put it into savings before you spend anything. Even an amount smaller than 10% is a good start.
Having savings, even if it is small, boosts your confidence in knowing that you can manage your finances. It’s part of building your unlimited power because you build for yourself, not for others.
4. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
Complacency is the silent killer of your success. It is also known as your comfort zone.
What happens when someone gets too comfortable? That person stops growing, stops working, stops creating added value.Anthony Robbins
We get trapped in our comfort zone when we follow the standards based on our peers. We become complacent when we feel up to par with people around us, though we haven’t reached our goal.
If you want to build your unlimited power, follow the standards based on your goals and your potentials. Find the people who have the same goal as you. Better yet, find the person who has achieved your goals, and ask them to become your mentor.
Following the standards of successful people moves you out of your comfort zone.
5. Give More Than You Get
It is known as the Law of Reciprocity. The more you give, the more you get.
When you receive something of value to you, give more value to the person who gave it to you. By giving more than you are receiving, you are planting the seeds of success you can sow later.
If it’s difficult for you to give, find something easy. What do you give to people without them having to ask for it? Find something you love that you can give constantly and naturally so it doesn’t become a task of you.
The certain way to increase wealth by giving is to focus on what you can sell that other people want to buy. If you combine that with the power of a product that can help people’s lives, then you are on a fast path to success.
