Tony Robbins tells us how to change our state in this video clip. We can't change our behavior until we change our state, which includes physiology, and Tony Robbins is the leading mind in this behavioral technique.
Partial Transcript of Tony Robbins on Changing Your State:
"What you want to do is train a new state. So when I was 17 I started doing incantations, not affirmations. Whith affirmations you go "I'm happy I'm happy I'm happy," but what's the problem?"
"You haven't changed your physiology. If you don't change your physiology, you won't get anything. So with incantations, not only do you speak it, but you embody what you are saying with all the intensity you can. And you do it with enough repetitions that it sticks in your head. So you use your body and your voice."
"So, 17 years ago I started doing things. I started working for Jim Rome the speaker. I was 17 years old, I had long hair, acne on my face, and I was trying to call on Bear Stearns type of people and convince them why they should go to this man's seminar and be more successful. I was driving a 1968 Volkswagen that I earned at $40/wk as a janitor."
"The only way I did it is park far from the building, and I'd go in and I'd love people and I'd believe, and I'd get in state, and I was able to influence people that were far more successful than I was."
Tony Robbins Basic Premise on Changing State
To change your state, you need to not only use words to motivate yourself, but you need to include your physical body, or "physiology" to really feel and experience a changed state. If you say "I'm the king of the world," but you're slumping in your chair and using a low tone of voice, then it doesn't really stick.
But if you stand up straight, puff out your chest, and smile while you feindishly growl "I'm the king of the world," then you are using your physiology to change your state. This is the crux of Tony Robbins' teaching on changing your state.
