D E A R F R I E N D :
Welcome to Personal Power, and congratulations on your commitment to measurably improve the quality of your personal and professional life! You are about to join millions of extraordinary people who have invested in and experienced the amazing benefits of this 30-day audio coaching system. I am especially and excited to welcome you to this to this special new addition, Personal Power II: The Driving
Force, and to share with you how important this journal can be to your success with this program.
Designed to be used after you listen to each day‟s session, your Personal
Success Journal is a place to constantly capture the key concepts and „action items‟ of each day‟s session. This simple system will help you maximize the benefits you
experience. Your journal is written to reinforce specific stories, examples, and principles, so if you browse though it right now, it may make little sense to you. (This is not a set of Cliff’s Notes!) But when you review the summaries and complete the
assignments each day following your audio session, you‟ll find this journal; to be extremely valuable in acceleration the process of creating change and in expanding your appreciation of your personal progress.
I‟m a firm believer in the adage that if your life‟s worth living, it‟s worth
recording, so in addition to the written exercises, be sure to take some extra moments each day to jot own a few notes about the events in your life, how you‟re feeling what
you‟re pleased and excited about, and to acknowledge the positive changes you‟re making. Personally, I‟ve kept journals for nearly 2 decades, and I know you‟ll find real value in putting your thoughts, ideas, and emotions on paper: There‟s a certain
level of clarity that comes from journal writing that‟s difficult to reach in any other way. This is such a simple yet rewarding process! The value of it „creeps up‟ on you. Its like watching children as they grow up: Sometimes it‟s difficult to see how much
they‟re growing if we‟re their parents, but when you see a child after being away for a while, the growth is so obvious! A journal gives you a chronicle of your own progress, and when you look back on it in the future, you‟ll have that sense of
distance that allows you to see and appreciate just how far you‟ve come.
Here are a few simple steps for getting the most from your journal:
1. Each day, Monday through Friday, listen to the assigned CD
2. After the session, open your journal and take immediate action on the day‟s
3. Before you close it for the day, take a few minutes to reinforce your learning
by jotting down any additional thoughts or feelings in your journal about what
you learned and how you‟re going to use the progress you‟ve already made.
So let‟s go! I know you‟re as anxious as I am for you to get started. It‟s amazing to think what exciting things are in store for you between now and the end of the next 30 days. Throughout that time and until we meet in person, remember to…..
Live with passion! ANTHONY J. ROBBINS
Day 1 -The Key to Personal Power
What changes, your life is making decisions and using your Personal Power, which is your ability to take consistent action.
The Unlimited Success Formula
1 Know your outcome
2 Get yourself to take action by deciding to do so.
3 Notice what you‟re getting from your actions.
4 If what you‟re doing is not working change your approach.
To save time and energy, use role models to accelerate the pace of your success:
1 Find someone who‟s already getting the results you want.
2 Find out what the person is doing
3 Do the same things and you‟ll get the same results.
It‟s impossible to fail as long as you learn something from what you do!
1 Write two decisions you‟ve been putting off which, when you make
them now, will change your life.
2 Now that you‟ve made a real decision, you must take immediate action.
To do that write down the first few steps. What are three simple things
you could do immediately – right now – that would be consistent with
your new decisions? (For example, if you decided to stop smoking,
what could you do with the cigarettes that are in your house right now?)
Who could you call? What could you commit to? What letter could
you write? What could you do instead of your old behavior? List the
immediate actions, and then take action on them right now, in this
Never leave the site of setting a goal or making a decision without taking some action toward its attainment. That‟s how you create momentum and start to tap into
the real driving force within you.
1. Two decisions I‟ve been putting off which, which when I make them now, will change my life:
2. Three simple things I can do immediately that will be consistent with my two

Day 2 - The Controlling Force That Directs Your Life
Ultimately, everything we do in our lives is driven by our fundamental need to avoid pain and our desire to gain pleasure; both are biologically driven and constitute a controlling force in our lives.
We will do far more to avoid pain than we will to gain pleasure. Pain is the
greater motivator in the short term.
At any moment in time, whenever you focus you attention on is what is most real to you. Therefore, if you want to change your behavior, you must focus your attention on.
1. How not changing your behavior will be more painful than changing it.
2. How changing will bring you measurable and immediate pleasure.
You must change what you link pain and pleasure to in order to change your behavior.
Use pain and pleasure instead of letting pain pleasure use you!
To take control of your life, you must take control of the force of decision. The
power to change anything in your life is born the moment you make a real decision – which by definition is something you take immediate action upon. Take the following steps now:
1. List four new actions you know you should take now.
2. What is the pain you‟ve associated with these actions that has kept you
from following through. Write it down.
3. List any pleasures you were able to get from not following through on
these four actions.
4. For each of these actions, describe in a paragraph what it will cost you if
you don‟t follow through. What will you miss out on? What will you
5. Now begin to associate pleasure with taking action For every by asking yourself these questions. What are all the disciplined effort benefits you‟ll gain by taking action in each of these there is multiple areas now? How will it enhance your life? How will reward – Jim Rohn it create greater joy, happiness, success, freedom, or
pride? Write down your answers.
1. Four new actions I know I should take now:
2. The pain I‟ve associated with these actions in the past:
3. The pleasure I took from not following through in the past:
4. What it will cost me if I don‟t follow through now:
5. The benefits I‟ll gain by taking action in each of these areas now:
Day 3 –Taking control the first step
Specifically, what drives our lives is our neuro-associations: ie., whatever pleasure
or pain we associate or „link‟ to a situation in our nervous system is going to
determine our behavior.
If we want to change our lives, we must change our neuro-associations.
1. The science you‟re going to learn in this program is Neuro-
Association Conditioning (NAC). This system will allow you
to link massive pleasure to tasks you‟ve been putting off, but
need to take action on today, and link pain to behaviors you‟re
currently indulging in but need stop – both of which will help
you tap into the natural principles of your nervous system. The
use of this program will give you a way to take direct control of
all your behaviors and emotions, but in a way that simply
requires the power of reinforcement not discipline.
2. In this session, you learned to ask yourself, „What are some of
the negative associations I‟ve made in the past that have kept
me from taking actions I need to take to achieve my ultimate
3. Your neuro-associations control your level of motivation.
Every single action your take has an effect on your destiny.
If we study destiny, we find everything in life has four parts:
1. Everything we think or do is a cause set in motion.
2. Every one of our thoughts and actions is going to have an effect or result in
3. Our results begin to „stack up‟ to take our lives in a particular direction.
4. For every direction there is an ultimate destination or destiny.
It‟s important for your now to begin to answer two questions: What is your
ultimate destiny? What do you want your life to be about? While few people
know precisely how their lives will turn out, we can certainly decide in advance
the kind or person we want to become and how we want to live our lives. Having
this „bigger picture‟ can pull us through some of the short term tough times and
keep things in perspective, allowing us to remain happy, fulfilled, and driven to
achieve our dreams.
1. Write down three neuro-associations you‟ve made in the past that have shaped
your destiny positively.
2. List three neuro-associations that have been disempowering you until now.
Decide you will change there today
Simple awareness can be curative. It can break the pattern The past does not of allowing our unconscious conditioning to control us. equal the future – Anthony Robbins 1. Three neuro-associations I‟ve made in the past that have shaped my destiny positively:
2. Three neuro-associations that have disempowered me until now
Day 4 –The science of Success conditioning,
Neuro-Associative conditioning, (NAC)
To change your life you must change your neuro-associations. Three things must be in place for you to make these changes and count on them to last. They are the three fundamentals of NAC:
1. Get leverage on yourself. To do this, three levels of responsibility are
necessary – you must decide the following:
a. Something must change.
b. I must change it.
c. I can change it
2. Interrupt your current pattern of association. You must scramble the old
pattern of thinking and feeling: this is best done with something unusual, such
as making a radical change in what you say or how you move your body.
3. Condition a new, empowering association. Install a new choice, and
reinforce it until it is conditioned. Any thought, emotion or behavior that is
constantly reinforced will become habit (a conditioned pattern). Link
pleasure to your new choice. Reward yourself emotionally even for small
progress, and find yourself developing new patterns quickly.
For each of the four actions you listed yesterday, do the following:
1. Get leverage: Write down 10 reasons why you must change that behavior now;
then list all the reasons why you can do it.
2. Interrupt your own pattern: Design four or five ways to get yourself out of
the limiting association - and do them!
3. Condition yourself by rehearsing your new behavior. Give yourself a sense of
accomplishment and exhilaration, pride, or joy each time you do this. Do it
consistently and rapidly until each time you think of this new pattern you feel
Here is a bizarre, outrageous and effective way to get leverage and break your pattern:
Get a weight-loss buddy and promise him or her and a group of other friends that your will begin a strict regimen of healthy foods and enjoyable exercise. Further commit them that if you break your promise, you will eat a whole can of Alpo dog food.
The women who shared this with me told me that she and her friend kept their cans in plain view at all times (no pun intended!) to remind them of their commitments. When they started to feel hunger pangs or considered skipping exercise, they‟d pick up the can and read
the label. Such appetizing ingredients such as „horsemeat chunks‟ helped them achieve their goals without a hitch!
