Change Your Story Quote:

“When you realize that your problem is not a lack of resources, it’s not a lack of money or technology or contacts. It’s your psychology because the ultimate resource is resourcefulness and human emotion. That’s what starts wars, that’s what makes a business begin, that’s how you have children, and that’s how we end wars. It’s all emotion. And so what I really learned to do is how to manage my emotions.”

– Tony Robbins


The Big Idea Behind This Quote:

To give context – in the seminar Tony asks, what are the common reasons why businesses fail?

You can ask yourself this question as well, why do some people tend to fail while others succeed?

Every person in the room generally agrees, it comes down to a lack of money, time, not knowing the right people, not having the right management. All these things are resources.

And so Tony says:

“Money is a resource, time is a resource, technology is a resource, people is a resource, experience is a resource.

Here’s the only problem.

I said in my experience, and you correct me if I am wrong and I want an honest answer. When we get out of ourselves and we look at human beings and their ability to succeed or fail.

How many people you’ve ever met who did not have the resources and they beat somebody who had all the resources? When you look at the most powerful and effective people in history, resources were never the problem. They didn’t have the resources, but they got them. How do people get resources when they don’t have them? The answer is they’re resourceful.”

“The ultimate resource is resourcefulness. That’s what makes someone successful.”
And here’s what’s great about resourcefulness.

Who has it within them? Who, who? Every human being. The question is whether you access it or not.”
