Find Your Leverage

2019-02-09

Are you struggling to do what is necessary to achieve your goals? Are you having a hard time sticking with it? Staying consistent? If you're having trouble staying motivated, then you probably haven't found enough leverage.

Tony Robbins teaches us that we are all driven by pain and pleasure. We want to avoid pain, and we want more pleasure. We want more money, better health, to be loved, to be successful. And we don't want to feel hurt, to be lonely, to feel insignificant.

Leverage is different for everyone. And it can be different for the same person in different situations. But it's always that tipping point that we believe will save us from pain or lead us to pleasure.

So if you're having trouble doing what you know you should be doing, then you haven't found your leverage point. You haven't found something to focus on that makes you believe that doing that thing will give you more pleasure and less pain. And more, you're probably convinced that doing it will cause pain and keep you from pleasure.

Don't bother pushing yourself through it, at least for too long. Instead, find your leverage, your tipping point, something to compel you to action. Because short of that you're not gonna get very far, and even if you do it won't be a happy journey.
