success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure quote

“Success Without Fulfillment is the Ultimate Failure”

“I would say change your story, change your life, because whatever your story is, becomes the shaper of all your perceptions. What you’re going to try or not try to do. The problem is most people are so addicted to telling that same story all over again. It does become their prison.” – Tony Robbins


Understand the meaning or big idea behind this quote:

In the talk, seminar, lecture or whateever you want to call it, Tony says:

“Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.

Don’t let that be you.

Fulfillment is as unique as there are people.

Achievement, there’re laws, you do this and that. Money, there are laws. your body there’s laws. We all have biochemical, special, unique identities.

But there are certain fundamentals. If you do them in mass, you’re going to be overweight. If you do them differently, you’re going to be fit and strong. Same thing with money, but fulfillment is as unique as art. Art is what one person thinks is beautiful.”


This reminds me of a similar saying of Jim Rohn who mentored Tony Robbins. He says to reach for a million dollars. Not for the money’s sake. But the person you must become in order to achieve it.

The idea being the purpose of a goal or any kind of success is the journey or the process to reach it. Sometimes we confuse and sacrifice too much for the sake of the goal once we achieve it, we can feel empty inside. Some successfull people will just raise the bar higher and then get stuck in a perputual cycle never really addressing the issue.
