Chapter 1


"A consistent man believes in destiny, a capricious man in chance."

Benjamin Disraeli

We all have dreams...We all want to believe deep down in our souls that we have a special gift, that we can make a difference, that we can touch others in a special way, and that we can make the world a better place. At one time in our lives, we all had a vision for the quality of life that we desire and deserve. Yet, for many of us, those dreams have become so shrouded in the frustrations and routines of daily life that we no longer even make an effort to accomplish them. For far too many, the dream has dissipated -- and with it, so has the will to shape our destinies. Many have lost that sense of certainty that creates the winner's edge. My life's quest has been to restore the dream and to make it real, to get each of us to remember and use the unlimited power that lies sleeping within us all.

I'll never forget the day it really hit me that I was truly living my dream. I was flying my jet helicopter from a business meeting in Los Angeles, traveling to Orange County on the way to one of my seminars. As I flew over the city of Glendale, I suddenly recognized a large building, and I stopped the helicopter and hovered above it. As I looked down, I realized this was the building that I'd worked in as a janitor a mere twelve years ago!

In those days, I had been concerned whether my 1960 Volkswagen would hang together for the 30-minute trip to work. My life had been focused on how I was going to survive; I had felt fearful and alone. But that day, as I hovered there in the sky, I thought, "What a difference a decade can make!" I did have dreams back then, but at the time, it seemed they'd never be realized. Today, though, I've come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy. As I continued my flight south along the coastal route, I spotted dolphins playing with the surfers in the waves below. It's a sight that my wife, Becky, and I treasure as one of life's special gifts. Finally, I reached Irvine. Looking below, I was a little disturbed when I saw that the off ramp to my seminar was jammed with bumper-to-bumper traffic for more than a mile. I thought to myself, "Boy, I hope whatever else is going on tonight gets started soon so that the people coming to my seminar arrive on time."

But as I descended to the helipad, I began to see a new picture: thousands of people being held back by security where I was just about to land. Suddenly I began to grasp the reality. The traffic jam had been caused by people going to my event! Although we had expected approximately 2,000 attendees, I was facing a crowd of 7,000 -- in an auditorium that would hold only 5,000! When I walked into the arena from the landing pad, I was surrounded by hundreds of people who wanted to give me a hug or tell me how my work had positively impacted their lives.

The stories they shared with me were incredible. One mother introduced me to her son who had been labeled "hyperactive" and "learning disabled." Utilizing the principles of state management taught in this book, she was not only able to get him off the drug Ritalin, but they had also since been transferred to California where her son had been retested and evaluated at the level of genius! You should have seen his face as she shared with me his new label. A gentleman talked about how he had freed himself from cocaine using some of the Success Conditioning techniques you'll learn in this book. A couple in their mid-fifties shared with me that, after fifteen years of marriage, they had been on the brink of divorce until they learned about personal rules. A salesman told me how his monthly income had jumped from $2,000 to over $12,000 in a mere six months, and an entrepreneur related that he had increased corporate revenues by over $3 million in eighteen months by applying the principles of quality questions and emotional management. A lovely young woman showed me a picture of her former self, having lost fifty-two pounds by applying the principles of leverage that are detailed in this book.

I was touched so deeply by the emotions in that room that I got choked up, and at first I couldn't speak. As I looked out on my audience and saw 5,000 smiling, cheering, loving faces, in that moment I realized that I am living my dream! What a feeling to know that beyond a shadow of a doubt I had the information, strategies, philosophies, and skills that could assist any one of these people in empowering themselves to make the changes they desired most! A flood of images and emotions flowed over me. I began to remember an experience I'd had only a few years before, sitting in my 400-square-foot bachelor apartment in Venice, California, all alone and crying as I listened to the lyrics of a Neil Diamond song: "I am, I said, to no one there. And no one heard at all, not even the chair. I am, I cried. I am, said I. And I am lost, and I can't even say why, leavin' me lonely still." I remembered feeling like my life didn't matter, as if the events of the world were controlling me. I also remember the moment my life changed, the moment I finally said, "I've had it! I know I'm much more than I'm demonstrating mentally, emotionally, and physically in my life." I made a decision in that moment which was to alter my life forever. I decided to change virtually every aspect of my life. I decided I would never again settle for less than I could be. Who would have guessed that this decision would bring me to such an incredible moment?

I gave my all at the seminar that night, and when I left the auditorium, crowds of people followed me to the helicopter to see me off. To say I was deeply moved by the experience would be an understatement. A tear slid down my cheek as I thanked my Creator for these wonderful gifts. As I lifted off the grass and ascended into the moonlight, I had to pinch myself. Could this be real? Am I the same guy who eight years ago was struggling, frustrated, feeling alone and incapable of making my life work? Fat, broke, and wondering if I could even survive? How could a young kid like me with nothing but a high school education have created such dramatic changes?

My answer is simple: I learned to harness the principle I now call concentration of power. Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives. Controlled focus is like a laser beam that can cut through anything that seems to be stopping you. When we focus consistently on improvement in any area, we develop unique distinctions on how to make that area better. One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular. In fact, I believe most people fail in life simply because they major in minor things. I believe that one of life's major lessons is learning to understand what makes us do what we do. What shapes human behavior? The answers to this question provide critical keys to shaping your own destiny.

My entire life has been continually driven by a singular, compelling focus: What makes the difference in the quality of people's lives? How is it that so often people from such humble beginnings and devastating backgrounds manage in spite of it all to create lives that inspire us? Conversely, why do many of those born into privileged environments, with every resource for success at their fingertips, end up fat, frustrated, and often chemically addicted? What makes some people's lives an example and others' a warning? What is the secret that creates passionate, happy, and grateful lives in many, while for others the refrain might be, "Is that all there is?"

My own magnificent obsession began with some simple questions: "How can I take immediate control of my life? What can I do today that can make a difference -- that could help me and others to shape our destinies? How can I expand, learn, grow, and share that knowledge with others in a meaningful and enjoyable way?"

At a very early age, I developed a belief that we're all here to contribute something unique, that deep within each of us lies a special gift. You see, I truly believe we all have a sleeping giant within us. Each of us has a talent, a gift, our own bit of genius just waiting to be tapped. It might be a talent for art or music. It might be a special way of relating to the ones you love. It might be a genius for selling or innovating or reaching out in your business or your career. I choose to believe that our Creator doesn't play favorites, that we've all been created unique, but with equal opportunities for experiencing life to the fullest. I decided many years ago that the most important way I could spend my life would be to invest it in something that would outlast it. I decided that somehow I must contribute in some way that would live on long after I was gone.

Today, I have the incredible privilege of sharing my ideas and feelings with literally millions of people through my books, tapes, and television shows. I've personally worked with over a quarter of a million people in the last few years alone. I've assisted members of Congress, CEOs, presidents of companies and countries, managers and mothers, salespeople, accountants, lawyers, doctors, psychiatrists, counselors, and professional athletes. I've worked with phobics, the clinically depressed, people with multiple personalities, and those who thought they had no personality. Now I have the unique good fortune of sharing the best of what I've learned with you, and for that opportunity I am truly grateful and excited.

Through it all, I've continued to recognize the power individuals have to change virtually anything and ever... --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fresh review, almost 7 years later! 29 novembre 2004
Par Bernie O'Mahony - Publié sur
Hi all, I originally wrote a review for this book back in 1998.

See 'Easy and exciting to read, with amazing results., January 11, 1998

Reviewer: A reader'

That was me! At that time I was back in the UK and finishing up in University. In my original review, I emphasised how easy it is to apply the lessons that Mr. Robbins suggests in this book. Having recently reviewed the posts near to mine, I noticed something very interesting. Very few posts have been marked as 'helpful' where the post is giving the book a positive review. But WOW! Look at all the 'helpful' agreements for all those that have something negative to say about it!!

Those people who say nothing good about it, obviously haven't applied the everyday principles to their lives, to help themselves. Now, I'm not suggesting that one should solely rely on just this book for all their advice. Indeed, one should seek confirmation from other sources if needed. But, since reading the book, almost 8 years ago; and giving the review nearly 7 years ago; I have to tell ya, whenever I've hit bad patches, I've referred to the teachings of Mr. Robbins and put myself back on track!!

Almost 15 years ago I lost everything I had to my then partner. She took the lot, including our daughter, whom she later gave up for adoption. To this day I have never been able to trace her. (Lots of reasons stand in the way). I tried for several years to get over the depression, even seeking counselling from therapists. Nothing worked. I realised, only I know ME like ME! Mr. Robbin's book helped me understand areas of my life that were in a mess. It helped me to sort them out. In essence, what it did was help me discover myself and my OWN learning processes of success in ALL areas. Including beating severe depression. If you're feeling suicidal, trust me, you're reading this book review because somewhere in your soul and heart, you KNOW there's something better for you ahead in your life, and you're simply seeking answers to sort it out. Suicide is NOT the way. WHATEVER negativity you're feeling in your life right now, you CAN change it by applying the lessons from this book! The authors of book reviews that talk negatively, failed to continue learning. Simple as that.

Today, 15 years later, I have achieved EVERYTHING I set out to achieve to end the depression in life. I went to college, then University, and am now married, with a 3 year old son. Also, I now successfully own TWO businesses that I started from scratch, and make more money now than I ever thought possible! Why? Because I learned to believe in MY OWN POWER of change - thanks to Awaken The Giant Within!

Not every word is necessary, and this is made clear in the book. Just use what you need! I don't need the book anymore, but I KNOW, I couldn't have reached my goals today, without the invaluable advice from Mr. Robbins. I apply the lessons whenever I'm hit with negativity - which usually comes from those that don't stick with anything long enough to make the changes they seek! That or those who have plenty of 'advice' to dish out about what YOU'RE doing wrong, because it's 'Not what I would do if I were in your shoes!'. Well, guess what, they're NOT in your shoes are they? So how can they possibly know what's right for you unless they experienced the same thing and changed it? Ever get business advice from someone who doesn't own a business? Ever experienced someone telling you how to raise your kids even though they don't have any of their own? This is YOUR life, and Mr. Robbins simply helps you take it back! He did so for me, and he can do for you!

A million thank yous Mr. Robbins!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book unleashed the Giant within me! 12 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
I first saw Tony Robbins on the Joan Rivers show back in 1993. I was very impressed by his charisma and energy, but like many others, felt that Tony Robbins was just a salesman trying to dupe the naive into buying his books and then all of the other products, seminars etc. At work, I ran into a friend who was radiant (unusual for her) and unusually bubbly She told me some of the changes in her life that were taking place and she had begun to read this book: "Awaken the Giant" What really impressed me were the changes that started taking place in the days and weeks that folowed. She started to lose weight, was participating more in meetings at work, and then got promoted. I was impressed. So I decided that this must work. I went out and bought Awaken the Giant and began to use the techniques such as "the swish pattern" and"scrambling technique" Awaken the Giant is a huge book, but I read it in one week. My job performance improved immediately as did my tennis game. I got immediate and dramatic results. This is not just a "feel good book" the techniques really work. My girlfriend also recommended that I read "More Wealth without Risk" by Charles Givens. She told me that More Wealth without Risk did as much for her on a Financial Level than Awaken the Giant did on a personal development level. I went out and read that book and I got equally dramatic results from a financial perspective. I highly recommend both books to anyone who wants to dramatically change their lives...and quickly!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 an exceptional guide but ... 10 janvier 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
I would have given this book 5 out of 5 but I believe nothing compares to seeing the man in person. In October '99 I attended one of Anthony Robbins' seminars, albeit reluctantly dragged to it by my boyfriend (I too was a cynic). Two years before that I had attempted suicide, been admitted to several psychiatric hospitals and was on a huge amount of medication for a 'mental disorder' as well as various painful physical ailments. I was addicted to sleeping pills, was unemployed, overweight, depressed and often violent. Anthony Robbins' seminar inspired me enough to test out the merit of his claims by quitting smoking and no longer taking medications and I embarked on the vegan diet he suggested. Within a week I was feeling wonderful and decided to improve other areas of my life. Reading 'Awaken' has given me new insights into how I can improve and it is great as a handbook to remind you of how you can be at your best - but by all means GO to one of his seminars. Be sceptical, but also be eclectic and use to information he gives - if you want happiness enough, you can have it! This book is an excellent distillation of ideas. Start with the physical and go from there if you need proof that his ideas work. Anyone who believes they can perform at their best while eating animal products is kidding themselves - become vegan and you will understand how energetic, vital and balanced you can really feel. I have been totally vegan for 4 months and I lost 25kg effortlesly and now maintain a stable weight of 57kg. Everyone is amazed at how wonderful I look. Also, I practice the breathing techniques every day and use his simple NLP techniques to control my anger. Anthony Robbins is a fantastic guide.There is always room for improvement. It works - just give it a try!

Yes, I too thought Tony Robbins was just a huckster when I saw him doing those infomercials on TV. I mean, the guy was just so sales-ish, so excited. In my case, it was seeing Tony on QVC that turned me around. I was already reading "self-help" type books like Covey's "7 Habits of Highly-Effective People" and I believe that you should wake up and put yourself in the driver's seat of your own life. I watched Tony take live on-air phone calls from people on QVC, answering their questions and giving them individual, REAL answers. He was smart, empathetic, and THERE in the moment for that caller. I was very impressed, and thought, what the hey - I'll buy the book. Well, unlike other books such as Covey's, Robbins materials are more about work! They contain tools and mental exercises and to-do lists. In other words, they are like learning ABC's for your mind. You have to practice and work on yourself. You can't just read it and voila! your life changes overnight. I didn't expect that to happen, but some naysayers out there probably expect that. Robbins gives you the tools you need to get to working on yourself. Is it hard to change your habits? You bet! Is it difficult to change yourself? Your ways of thinking? It is the most difficult thing you'll ever do. But with Tony's materials, it's easier because he gives you a blueprint. He doesn't just tell you again what we all already know - anger is bad, eat well, lose weight, don't be sad, yadda, yadda. He gives you examples and tools for how to get out of that rut so that you can change from sad to happy, broke to whatever. Think of it as the most important toolkit you'll ever own - and get in the driver's seat of YOUR life!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A VERY GOOD BOOK 17 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
I enjoyed AWAKEN THE GIANT and feel that this book gave me a new lease on life. It's very easy to read, entertaining, uplifting as well as informational. Tony Robbins has the ability to get you to "take action" like no one else.
If you just read the book, you'll get knowledge. If you read and apply that knowledge by doing the exercises, you'll get results like you've never seen before!
I also subscribe to Tony's "PowerTalk" Program and highly endorse it. Nobody communicates with the power of ROBBINS.
As a result of "PowerTalk" I've been building my library as per Robbins recommendations. I particularly enjoyed Barbara DeAngelis "Are you the one for me" and Charles Givens "Wealth without Risk" and the related interviews with Tony on the "PowerTalk" Tapes. In fact, if anyone had to pick just three books that would substantially turn their life's around, the three best books would be 1)Awaken the Giant-perso! ! nal development and achievement, 2)Are you the one for me?-relationships and to ignite that passion in your life and, 3) Wealth without Risk-for building and keeping wealth.
So thank you TONY ROBBINS for not only helping me reach a new level of personal achievement with your book and tapes, BUT also for recommending DEANGELIS & GIVENS. Without your recommendation, I never would have considered buying their material.
I also own Tony's "PERSONAL POWER" audio program. It was the best $180 I ever spent!
