Lesson #3: Anything is Possible with Passion and Purpose
“Live with passion!” he exclaims. “There is no greatness without a passion to be great, whether it's the aspiration of an athlete or an artist, a scientist, a parent, or a businessperson.” According to Robbins, a life without passion is a life of un-fulfillment.
But, it doesn’t stop at passion; that alone will not get you to where you want to go. What you also need are goals and a focus on achieving those goals. “People are not lazy,” says Robbins. “They simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that do not inspire them…In life you need either inspiration or desperation.”
Over the course of Robbins’ career, he has seen numerous athletes, business people and world leaders alike who have failed to achieve their goals, not because they lacked passion, but because they lacked focus. “One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power,” he says. “Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.”
Robbins believes beyond a doubt in the adage, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” But, there also has to be a strong dedication to that way, to achieving your goals. “I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve,” says Robbins. “This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.”
With a focus towards a clear set of goals and a steadfast commitment to achieving those goals, Robbins believes that anything is possible. Without that, we risk losing much of our short and precious time floundering around in a life of mediocrity. “Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives,” says Robbins. “In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”
Robbins believes that determination is the wake-up call to the human will, allowing each individual to achieve the life of his or her dreams. “We can change our lives,” he says. “We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.”
