The first part focuses on internal control. Tony Robbins begins by introducing the concept of NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming), which was officially created in the early 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.
This methodology allows us to better understand our internal mental models so that we can question them, reflect on them, and whether we need to give them new meaning.
What, then, is to shape human existence? Well, according to the author there are patterns in the neurological behaviors of each individual; that can be modeled, and from that, we can take "shortcuts" for faster results.
We take as an example a very successful person in some area. You can shape that person's standards as this will give you a much faster result than if you simply sought success by trial and error. This is called modeling.
Okay, so how's the modeling done? How can we model that person's standards?
Robbins tells us that there are three keys to modeling. The first of these is belief. Tony describes belief as
"Any guiding principle, maxims, faith, or passion that can provide meaning and direction in life."
Once you know the beliefs of the successful person, you must replicate them.
The second key is mental syntax. But what is the mental syntax?
Well, it's nothing more than the way we organize our communication with our nervous system, in other words, how we organize our thoughts. One way of discovering someone's mental syntax is by observing that person.
Finally, we come to the third key, which addresses physiology. Physiology is posture, breathing, facial expressions, or gestures. It determines how people use their brains.
For example, generally, a successful person walks in a more erect, more imposing, showing self-esteem. One way to be successful, therefore, would be to replicate this behavior and start walking in that same way, more imposingly.
Knowing the three keys, we can model the behavior of any person, and this leads us to the second part of Unlimited Power.
In the second part, Robbins focuses on more external aspects, addresses his internal control with other people, that is, with the world around him. He works our limitations, how to get rid of them and find out what we really want, using the power of precision and harmony.
It also deals with how we should facing resistance and solving problems, reshaping our lives, how to anchor success and metaprograms.
Metaprograms are filters that determine how we perceive the world around us. They also have a great influence on how we communicate with the people and in the behaviors that we manifest.
In the last part of the book "Unlimited Power", Tony Robbins deals with our values, our personal beliefs, and our belief system, which, according to him, is the key to understanding our behaviors and attitudes of people around us as well as being considered the basis that will define our reactions in any situation.
In order to understand other people and get along better, this is important because we deal with people at all stages of our lives and all the time. So we need to know what is important to them and what their values are.
Another point addressed is the so-called keys of prosperity and happiness. Robbins shows us how to learn to control our frustrations, rejection, financial pressure, accommodation, and learn to always give more than we expect to receive.
In the end, he asks if this is the way you really want to go, and if not, you can change when you want, because power is the ability we all have to change, adapt, grow and evolve.
In the book "Mindset", written by psychologist Carol S. Dweck, it is debated how our beliefs shape our behavior and our growth. While mindsets produce definitive worldviews, people can change as they learn new skills. Human beings can be taught to react in different ways, such as facing challenges and thinking differently.
For Daniel Goleman, author of the book "Working with Emotional Intelligence", for leaders, their emotional intelligence translates to an organization. Often this attribute attracts clients, even more than brains or history. Again, the skills that create empathy - active listening and vision of a situation from another person's point of view - are vital.
Finally, in the book "Winning", Jack Welch discusses that we should always seek quality in our professional life. If you are not satisfied with your job, find a job that provides enthusiasm in your career. It is very important that you do not settle and leave your comfort zone.
"Only a small percentage of people actually live the life of their dreams. Why? It takes effort and it takes firmer action."
So if you want to change your life, take control of your mind, relate better to people around you, and succeed in life. The keyword is action, so act. In Tony Robbins' book, you will find several tools to help you on this path.
