Prioritizing your needs
Tony Robbin states that there are 6 fundamental needs that every human has:
- Certainity : Do you value and need safely, stability, security and predictability in your life?
- Variety : Do you value suprise , adventure, chaos, excitement, change and challenges?
- Significance : Do you value meaning, pride, a sense of importance and being needed
- Love and connection: Do you value the connection with other humans? The need to be loved and to feel connected with.
- Growth : Do you have the need for consistent emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth?
- Contribution : The need to give beyond our-self – to serve, protect and help others.
For me personally : This is the priority order:
Love and connection, Variety, Growth, Certainity, Contribution and Significance
2) KNOWING YOUR EMOTIONS:
Master your emotions to Master your life:
Knowing what makes you happy
Here’s a simple experiment, at the end of each day, write about the things that you are grateful for. Have a joy diary!
Pay attention to the things that make you happy!
When you write about it, you are giving life to it. You’ll feel it in. You’ll let the good emotions in you. Because people these days, detach themselves from.
People these days gets so stressed and frustrated about the negative things in their life that they completely forget about the good things!
Please don't be one of those people who divorces the love of their life because they were "too busy with work" to pay any attention! Remember it took all your life to actually find such a good connection?!
So! Start paying attention or pay more attention to the things in your life that makes you happy or makes you feel good!
- Write about the moments in your life that you want to relive!
- Have a joy diary and fill it up everyday with the things that make’s you happy.
Knowing your fear's
What are your greatest fears? What incidents in your life have caused you to fear these?
Are you the kind of person who detaches away from negative feelings? Running away from something?
To be able to experience your life to the fullest, to be able to reach the peak of happiness joy and fulfillment, you need to be willing to face any sort of negative feelings that might come along with it.
So, what are the moments in your life that caused you the most pain and suffering? How did it change you? What kind of fears did it bring into you? Know your fears! And face them.
" People are driven by the desire for pleasure or the fear of pain"
And if you are driven by the fear of pain, you'll spend most of your life running away from the life that you truly desire!
3) Knowing your purpose:
Something beyond ourself
Here's a two step process to find your purpose:
1) If you could change anything about this world, what would you change?
2) What are you good at?
The intersection between these two is your purpose! It can't be put any simpler than this!
