If you want to really change your thoughts or really change your actions, and act in a refreshing way, start with feelings first.
What’s the fastest way to change how you feel?
Change your physiology.
If you want to feel more confident, or happier, or unstoppable, you have to change how you feel. But how do you change how you feel?
You change your physiology. One of the best insights from Tony Robbins is that we can’t always think our way to feeling better. Changing your physiology is the fast path.
Let’s say you want to feel unstoppable. One way to start is to “remember the feeling.” Recall a time in your life when you felt unstoppable. How would breathe if you felt unstoppable? How would you hold yourself if you felt unstoppable? Actually do it. You get the idea.
So let’s not overthink this or over-analyze it. Instead, change your physiology, and “fake it ’til you make it.”
But here’s the surprise — if you actually do remember the feeling, and if you really are holding yourself as if you are unstoppable, and if you really are breathing as if you are unstoppable — you’re not faking it …
… you’re there.
