we live who we believe we are tony robbins quote

We live who we believe we are:

“We live who we believe we are”
– Tony Robbins


Other quotes with a similar message:

“We live our life based on what we believe.”
– Tony Robbins

“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.”

“Those who think they can and those who think they can’t are both usually right.”
– Confucius

Big idea or meaning of this quote:

Tony says, “Whatever people have their identity attached to, they live.

We live who we believe we are.

That’s just how it works. It’s just kind of an example I give. Look at your physical body. Your physical body today is an absolute reflection of only one thing, not your goals, not your desires, but your standards.

The identity you have for yourself.”

The wisdom behind this quote is similar to the story Tony gives of a smoker.

If you’re trying to quit and you say, “well, I’ve been smoking my whole life” then you’re going to find a very difficult time quitting. If the identity you’ve formed in your head is constantly saying your a smoker how likely would you be to stop? I’d wager not very long.

It all begins with a decision and a commitment to make a change in a positive direction.

In many habit books, they teach to start with small actions which could reaffirm the identity you want to form. Make it easy as you can to do.

For example, I wanted to prove to myself that I am disciplined person and so everyday after I woke up I made a promise to make my bed. After two days you get delirious, “see, I told you”. It then carries of to other areas of your life.

Want to be more healthy, eat an apple a day.

Go for a walk around the block.

It’s a simple, but powerful idea that we sometimes need a reminder:

we're capable of change quote
