Have you seen the Tony Robbins movie on Netflix?

If not, it’s called I am Not Your Guru, and I highly recommend it. Just be sure to have a box of Kleenex handy. 🙂

After watching Tony help people make such HUGE shifts in such a short time, I decided to enroll in his online course — Robbins Madanes Training — so I can learn how to do what he does.

One of the first things Tony does in his interventions is find out where his subject’s FOCUS is. What is he or she paying attention to from day to day? Is what they’re focusing on empowering or disempowering?

As you can probably guess, the person is typically focusing on disempowering thoughts and circumstances. Then, it’s Tony’s job to interrupt this pattern and reveal a new set of CHOICES that he or she couldn’t see before.

Focus is a powerful thing. Unfortunately, for reasons we’ll be exploring in next Tuesday’s podcast episode, the human brain has a tendency to latch onto negative experiences and outcomes. Our thoughts tend to fixate on the “bad” things that have happened to us while tuning out a lot of the good.

Based on these negative thoughts, we write stories about our lives that aren’t as truthful and accurate as we think they are. And the limiting voices in our heads work their tails off to validate these stories … over and over again.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Once you become aware of what you’ve been doing to yourself, you can take back the power to choose where you’re putting your focus.

You can rewrite the script and assume the role of lead actor in this movie called Life.

In this week’s episode of The SC Sessions, Aaron Anastasi, author of The Voice of Your Dreams, reveals how to turn down your voice of limitation and turn up the voice of success by shifting your focus and finding out the truth about you.
