We all like recognition, don’t we? Remember a time when a boss or parent offered you praise. It felt good, didn’t it?
Well, the desire for recognition is common, and it’s of our broader desire for significance, which is one of the 6 Human Needs motivational author and speaker Tony Robbins says drive us all.
How do you seek this kind of significance? Do you like to be noticed, or do you try to avoid it? Well, if you’re super-driven to be successful, desire to hear you’re outstanding, or foster competitive and perfectionist actions, then significance is high on your list of human needs.
All that’s great, unless it leads you to associating with only people who pale in your shadow or choosing experiences you know you can master easily.
Connection/Love is another of Tony’s 6 Human Needs, so again, let’s ask how you go about meeting that need. If this is most important to you of all the needs, that means you’re loyal and generous, with strong social ties — but an ease at losing yourself and difficulty saying no.
As with all human needs, it helps us to try to meet them – but only if we don’t go too far in one direction or the other.
That applies to our healthy living habits and desires, as well. Think about how a desire to constantly push yourself in the activities you love has lead to a body that can’t do them as well, or at all. 🧐
Consider how much you have to sacrifice of your time and energy if you want to achieve something extraordinary, like long-distance running or extremely low body fat.
Maybe “setting priorities” is just another way of describing how we balance how we try to fulfill all these needs.
We’re here to help with all of that. Your health and fitness goals will have an overarching priority, then a bunch of reasonably spaced mini-priorities to get you there.
Then it’s about 3 things:
𝟭)𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲𝘀𝘁𝘆𝗹𝗲 𝗳𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗼𝗿𝘀, 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗰𝗵𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗲𝘅𝗲𝗿𝗰𝗶𝘀𝗲𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗱𝗼.
𝟮) 𝗜𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗴𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘀𝗲 𝗱𝗶𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰 𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝗮 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗻.
𝟯)𝗛𝗼𝗹𝗼𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗮𝗹𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝗶𝘁 𝗮𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂.
