Yesterday I asked: if you knew that what you wanted was what you really wanted, to read that go here. Make sure you’ve done that before doing this part.
Today I’m going to share one of Tony Robbins core principles: The 6 Human Needs.
He proposes that we all have 6 basic needs which include:
#1 Certainty (or security)
#2 Uncertainty (or variety)
#4 Love and Connection
#5 Growth (spiritually, or in our soul or being)
#6 Contribution (to the wider world)
We prioritise them differently from person to person, but we each have all of them to one degree or another.
So, decide right now on a level of 1 – 10 (1 being hardly at all, 10 being totally full) how does your life measure up right now . Go through all 6 and mark on a pad where you are with each. Anything below a 5 by the way means you are pretty dissatisfied with that area of your life – that need of yours is NOT being met.
THEN, go to your Perfect Day and go through the same process.
In your Perfect Day how Certain are you about where you are in your life? 1 – 10
In your Perfect Day how much Uncertainty/Variety is there in your life? 1 – 10
In your Perfect Day how Significant do you feel? 1 – 10
In your Perfect Day how much Love & Connection do you feel? 1 – 10
In your Perfect Day how much Growth is taking place in your life? 1 – 10
In your Perfect Day how much are you Contributing to others? 1 – 10
Mark these scores on your pad. Notice if you are still lower on some than you’d like to be. Are they all at 9s and 10s? If not, why not? What’s missing? Maybe something isn’t really how you want it to be.
If Yes – then that is what you really want, now go for it!
This technique can be applied to any and every area of your life and brings real clarity very quickly.
Try it and see.
