“It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.”
— Tony Robbins
I really like Tony Robbins’s takes on certain issues, that’s not to say that I agree with everything he says.
There’s one idea that I really do like even though it isn’t necessarily true. That’s something I feel everyone needs to decide for themselves until the science on the matter comes in.
The issue here is dealing with trauma or negative self-talk.
Robbins compares it to taking a needle to a vinyl record and scratching it again and again. The idea is to scratch it so badly that the record won’t play properly.
It’s a pretty cool idea and something I feel worked for me.
When I was younger I had this habit of dealing with hard things by making fun of them. In some cases it completely changed my perception of them.
In other cases it turned out that the method was more like kicking the can down the road. I realized I needed to use other tools to manage them.
It’s just a short idea and something you just might find useful.
Have a kick-ass ₢eative day!
