Show Notes

Triggering Your Breakthrough

  • A breakthrough is a moment in time.
  • It’s when the impossible becomes possible and you aren’t just thinking about the problem anymore. You’re ready to act upon it.
  • You can have an idea or a concept, but that doesn’t create a breakthrough.
  • The breakthrough happens when you get to the point where you’re actually going to do something about it.
  • Everyone has been through times of struggle.
  • Maybe it’s being in a relationship that you keep meaning to change, but don’t. Or you want to stop smoking, lose 25 pounds, etc.
  • You may even start to make progress but then pull back, which leads to disappointment and frustration.
  • But at some point, you finally hit this threshold where your brain says, “no more”.
  • All of a sudden, you don’t want to wait another day, or even another hour. You are ready to change the relationship, lose the weight.
  • You’re going to make it happen.
  • That’s when you create the breakthrough, moving from inaction to action.
  • It’s the difference between what triggers the action versus what makes action possible.
  • What triggers action is usually pain or massive inspiration. Nothing in between does it.
  • When you hit that threshold of pain, you’re able to move into action because the pain isn’t a deterrent anymore.
  • The trigger allows action to happen.
  • If you look back at a time where you finally broke through something, the trigger was usually a moment of, “I can’t take it anymore”.
  • It can also be triggered by powerful inspiration, where you saw it was possible.

Creating Lasting Change

  • What makes change last is changing your emotions, belief systems, or developing a new strategy.
  • The right strategy is important, but you’re not going to find that strategy until it’s a must, not a should.
  • It’s the same to change your beliefs.
  • You have to reach the point where you’ve put up with your situation long enough and feel that you’re better, you deserve better, you can do better.
  • It’s a common tactic to make things complex.
  • But complexity is the enemy of execution.
  • The only way your life or business changes is through execution.
  • You always want to be looking at how you can make execution simple.
  • There are three things you need for a breakthrough.
  • But most of us do them in reverse order, so the breakthrough doesn’t happen.
  • It’s common to look for a strategy first.
  • But you may not be using the best strategy, which actually makes your strategy the problem.
  • Look at weight loss. Three-quarters of America is overweight or obese, yet very few people effectively work to make that change.
  • There are a lot of strategies to lose weight. But they may not be sustainable, or the best one for you.
  • It’s common to work for the how first, but your emotions get in the way and you end up going in the wrong sequence.
  • Rarely do you experience a breakthrough leading with strategy.
  • The real problem is usually the story you’ve developed about the problem.
  • A story is just code for all the things you’ve told yourself over and over until you believed them.
  • There’s an old language pattern that says, tell a lie big enough, loud enough, long enough, and sooner or later people believe it.
  • That was Hitler, and often you’re the Hitler of your own mind.
  • Going back to weight loss, maybe you believe you can’t lose weight because you’ve tried everything.
  • But you didn’t really try everything.
  • When really pushed, you’ve probably tried the same handful of strategies over and over.
  • You’re not seeing progress because of the story you’ve told yourself: that you can’t lose weight.
  • If your story is blinding you, you won’t be able to see the answer—even if it’s right in front of you.
  • In psychology it’s called a scotoma: a blind spot.
  • But there’s a level deeper than even the story. And that’s your state—the physical, mental, and emotional state you’re in.
  • When you’re in a low mental, emotional, or physical state, you can have all the brain capacity in the world, but you’re not going to use it.
  • And when you’re in a lousy state, you come up with a lousy story. Then no strategy works.
  • Have you ever noticed when you’re angry at someone, you suddenly remember all the ways they’ve ever wronged you?
  • But when you fall in love, what’s wrong with life? Absolutely nothing. Everything is wonderful when you’re in love.
  • Your state matters.

Unlocking Your Next Breakthrough

  • The sequence you do things in accelerates, decelerates, or stops progress when it comes to a breakthrough.
  • You have to change your state first.
  • One of the reasons Tony does immersion events is because when you’re surrounded by passionate people who are really going for their goals, you’re going to have a change of state.
  • And when you change your state, you change your story which then allows you to figure out your strategy.
  • The challenge—especially with COVID—is everyone’s state has dropped.
  • You’ve been isolated, you’ve been pushed at home, and you’ve had expectations that have fallen away.
  • When you’ve been disappointed too many times, you fall into learned helplessness and start thinking the problem is forever.
  • But no problem is forever.
  • To create effective change, you have to first change your state, then change your story, then find the right strategy.
  • If you want to go deeper into this, Tony is doing a free seminar online with over a million people.
  • It’s from January 25 – January 29, starting at 2pm EST/11am PST.
  • All you have to do is go to JimKwik.com/Tony to enroll.
  • There’s no cost, and you can bring your family, your friends, your office.
  • It’s going to cover your body, your emotions, your relationships, your financing,and your career or business over five days, over two hours per day.

Breakthrough In Action

  • Tony used to spend an average year traveling to 115 cities, 12-16 countries, some of them several times a year.
  • Every two or three days he was on a plane, train, or helicopter.
  • But all of a sudden, when the pandemic hit, and places began shutting down, Tony didn’t believe he’d have to change how he put on seminars.
  • But when everything shut down completely, he had to reevaluate his beliefs.
  • His biggest belief was that his events were not possible in a webinar format.
  • They were more than just information, they were an experience.
  • He gathered his team to figure out how to change the webinar experience to fit his seminar experience.
  • They brought in eight companies to complete a nine-month project in nine weeks.
  • They found a building with 40-foot high ceilings and built 20-foot high, 50-foot wide LCD screens to go 180 degrees around Tony.
  • They also built a software piece to go in people’s phones so when they shake it, it makes authentic clapping. The more you shake, the louder the clapping gets.
  • The interactivity was important.
  • Now, Tony can see ten times as many people as he did in his live seminar format.
  • He can reach an even broader audience.
  • He’s still going to do live events, but he’s going to continue doing these online events as well.
  • By changing what he believed was possible, his personal life improved in addition to his professional life.
