Anthony Robbins: Awaken the Giant Within

Happy New Year, again, to you all!  It’s time for the first book recommendation of 2010 – a true classic.

The unofficial “father” of the life coaching industry, Tony Robbins has long been a household name.  And in my opinion, rightfully so.  His book Awaken the Giant Within: How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Destiny! has been acclaimed by many respected leaders as “must read” material.  Written in 1992, the book examines a large range of topics including goal-setting, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), relationships, and personal finance.  To this day, many people credit Robbins and this book in particular for their financial and personal success.  Awaken the Giant Within is a practical, easy-to-read, life-changing book, which enables all of us to grasp the tools to release our full potential and awaken the giant in us all.

Leadership

This was taken from a Tony Robbins workbook and I simply love it!

“If you can love everybody unconditionally and at the same time have a standard that’s higher than anybody else in the group, you will become a leader. The person with the highest standard, the person who is the most dynamic in their capacity to influence through their caring and relationships, is the person who will lead.”
