“The most powerful way to shape our lives is to get ourselves to take action,” says self-help guru Anthony Robbins.
I like Tony and admire his work; as far as motivational teachers go, few can stoke my inner fire for motivation, and get me going and taking actions quite like him. But whilst I appreciate the power of taking actions to move towards what we want in life, I disagree that it is the most powerful way to shape our lives.
There’s a whole lot more involved that needs to be taken into consideration than just making yourself take actions. Yes, taking action is important but his statement requires some caveats.
