Taking Action NOW Creates Success
Updated: Feb 27, 2018
Why live an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one?
I recently watched a Tony Robbins video on Rapid Planning Method (RPM) that stresses the importance of understanding our goals in life, learning how to take action now successfully to achieve these goals, to impact others and further our own fulfilment in all aspects of our life. Tony says that "the goal in life is not to manage time, but creating a life that is absolutely fulfilling, a life that is always growing and contributing." You might be asking how can we create this illusive life that is so absolutely fulfilling? The answer lays in how we organise our day, our life, our finances and our lifestyle.
Tony's Rapid Planning Method (RPM) is actually quite simply a new system of thinking that infuses our positive impactful words with a power to change our outcomes, a method of prioritising and group that affords us a focus tool to concentrate on the major things instead of "majoring in the minor things" in life.
Here's how it works.
So, what's a goal that you want to achieve? Take a minute to think of one or even a few.
The secret to setting goals is to identify the goals you want to achieve. The trick then, is to immediately commit yourself to fulfilling those goals. For example, if you want to add meditation or journaling to your daily routine, immediately committing yourself to setting your alarm 10, 20 or even 30 minutes early and setting a reminder for yourself will set you up for immediate follow-through and thus immediate success.
The Secret of RPM
“For changes to be of any true value, they've got to be lasting and consistent.”
In an effort to make changes lasting and consistent, Tony talks about 3 questions to ask ourselves
1. What outcome do I really want to achieve (Results)?
2. Why do I want to achieve that outcome & why does it excite me (Purpose)?
3. What do I need to do to achieve this outcome (Massive Action Plan)?
