Summary of Content


Do you feel stuck like a hamster on a wheel? Do you have the feeling you are treading on the same spot and want to break out of your daily endeavours which makes you feel stressed and frustrated?

But, you don’t know how? Then I recommend you to read Tony Robbins book «Awaken The Giant Within» from all of my heart. This book is really a masterpiece of self-development. It is a true Life Changer.

By reading this book you will learn how to make an immediate change in your habits. You will learn how you can use Tony’s advice to change your health, relationships and finances to the better. You will also learn how to master your emotions and time to your benefit.

Most people associate a habit change to a long-lasting painful action. Tony says that a change can happen instantly by reshaping the focus and turn a negative thought pattern to a positive one instead.  What it takes is a clear DECISION and consciously attach a positive emotion to the new habit and a painful emotion to the bad habit.


“If you truly decide to, you can do almost anything.”

“Value guides our every decision, and therefore, our destiny.”

Quotes out of the book


The values you set for yourself are guiding you through life. So if you don’t know what your values really are then you won’t arrive at the dream destination of our life. The values are like a compass for your life and they help you to make the right decisions, which helps you to steer toward your desired goals.

I like this book so much because it is not a theoretical analysis; It is written in an understandable way with lots of plausible and real examples. Furthermore, Tony reveals techniques so you can take action upon what you have learned, while reading the book, for example on how to master your emotions, eliminate bad habits, and reshape your values.

You really must read this book if you want to take control of your behaviours and create your desired future.

I am myself implementing step by step what I have learned from Tony and I can confirm that it is true what he says; It is possible to change your thought pattern, your beliefs and values. Most important is to take that DECISION to TAKE ACTION which will guide you to the goal you have set for yourself.


«Deep within man dwell those slumbering powers;

powers that would astonish him,

that he never dreamed of possessing;

forces that would revolutionize his life if aroused

and put into action. »

Orison Swett Marden
