Understand the meaning or big idea behind this quote:

This quote, “where focus goes, energy flows” is not like the secret, whereby thinking something will attract it into your life.

For you to live an extraordinary life, to achieve whatever it is your after you must be focused and obsessed about it. It’s this obsession and drive within you that will lead you to results.

The Secret about the Secret

Tony in one of his talks mentions this the idea behind the secret, “Who’s to say you’re supposed to think of something and get it? That’s what the secret promises.”

He tells a story of a friend who when the book first came out said it was so simple and questioned why he doesn’t teach it in his seminars.

Tony’s response, “If you want simple, just go do it. Tell me how it’s working. He said, ‘I focused on green lights all the way here. And I’ve got green lights all the way.’ And I said, ‘what are you going to do when you get red lights?

You’re going to blind yourself.

Say you’re not thinking positively enough. You’ll begin to think you’re all messed up. I said, it’s a stupid. are you saying the purpose of people that were in Auschwitz were there because they weren’t thinking positive enough, and they attracted all this negativity in their life. That’s absurd. We all have different life paths and different stages of our path, and each stage opens up different possibilities for us.”

The Real Secret

As tony says, “Questions control what you focus on. What you focus on is what you feel. What you feel is your experience of life.”

This is a lesson on self-awareness.

To watch where your mind goes and to analyze it’s thought process.

There’s two ways to have the largest building in the city:

(1) by building it
(2) by tearing down everyone else’s

Do you get jealous or inspired by seeing other people succeed?

When you compare yourself to others it can hurt, but you don’t have to let it. You can allow other people to achieve things you want for yourself and to let it motivate you to get yours or you can take jabs or hurl insults to tear them down.

“where your attention goes energy flows”

Will leave with another quote from Tony, “So figure out what’s going to excite you like that. What’s one goal? One focus (if you want to go three, do three max) what’s one, two or three things that you’re going to accomplish in the next 90 days that are going to excite the hell out of you?”

“Where attention goes, energy flows and results show.
