Here are some words of wisdom from Robbins to help you get a jumpstart on your goals.

"People are not lazy, they simply have impotent goals- that is, goals that do not inspire them."

It is crucial that we set goals that excite and inspire us. If we don't know what those are, then we need to find out before setting them. Otherwise, you won't continue to see results. I could also add that those goals should even be a little intimidating. This lets you know you are on the right track to success, and that there is only one way through to it- forward.

"Identify your problems, but give your time and energy to solutions.

It is important to be mindful of your shortcomings while contemplating the way forward. When you look at problems, you should only see them as sources of solutions. Beyond that, they should be historical sidenotes. The key to approach your goals like Tony Robbins is to always visualize your ultimate goal.

There’s no abiding success without commitment.” 

You can't sustain your success towards your goal without a continued commitment to achieving and maintaining it. Commitment means faithfulness in your aspirations. It requires a sense of responsibility for failures as well as achievements. It requires integrity and a valiant effort. Ultimately, you're responsible for your own momentum.

The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you.”

Constantly working to avoid pain and gain pleasure is missing the point of each. You need to value both of them. Learn to be content with and never avoid the outcome of your endeavors, no matter what they are. Pain can drive you forward and allow you to try harder but pleasure is merely a fleeting reward unless you are content. To move forward, change your perception of pain and pleasure. More importantly, change how you react to them.

You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.”

If you asked someone what it took to become successful, you could often receive a succinct response that seems rather simple. So why aren't more of us successful? It's the lack of momentum. It's our responsiblity to facilitate the proper time and effort to turn our dreams into reality.

“The meeting of preparation with opportunity generates the offspring we call luck.”

Being constantly mindful of your  goals enables you to be prepared for opportunity when it arrives. Luck is merely a result of combining momentum and mindfulness with opportunity. Setting goals and committing to them on a daily basis keeps you mindful of opportunities as they come. If you keep moving foward in spite of the obstacles, you will be successful. Remember to enjoy every moment on the way to your goal. It will only make you hungry to accomplish more.
