Do you want to take control of your life, abolish your limitations and achieve your most elusive goals? Anthony Robbins teaches you how to do just that. You’ll learn how your brain processes information and how to manipulate that process to your advantage. You’ll explore the science of "Neuro-Linguistic Programming" (NLP), the study of human neurology, so you can analyze and duplicate your successes. Robbins uses NLP extensively, although many experts debunk it. He explains that the best path to success is to find an accomplished person, discover his or her strategies for becoming successful, and duplicate that process. He also weighs in on how to keep your weight down, communicate and eliminate bad habits. By the way, he cautions against skimming this book to separate the self-help wheat from the chaff. Instead, he encourages you to read every page and perform every exercise. This is not easy because he explains each concept at least two or three ways. However, Robbins has a big following and is clearly onto something; getAbstract thinks you might want to find out just what. This book is a good place to start if you seek a personal achievement makeover.


No Limits

What you can be and achieve has no limits. "Unlimited power" connotes your ability to revamp your life and produce every outcome you’ve ever wanted while generating value for the people around you. Unlimited power gives you the ability to fulfill your needs and the needs of the other people in your life.

Two Types of Communication

Human communication exists in two basic forms: external and internal. External communication is the way you communicate to others through your words, tone, gestures, posture and facial expressions. Your success in society depends upon how well you communicate externally.

On the other hand, internal communication combines your internal dialogue with the images you conjure in your mind. Feeling happy, sad, excited or depressed is the direct result of the way you communicate with yourself. You can control what goes on in your mind by controlling your internal dialogue. This means you have the power to govern your emotional states, from misery to joy, by assuming the point of view that corresponds to the emotion you want. Change your mental and physical posture to match the emotion you wish to feel.
