Getting in the right state to make GREAT decisions.

Getting in the right state to make GREAT decisions.

Recently I had the opportunity to go to a live event where Tony Robbins presented for 5 hours!

It was absolutely amazing. 

While I would love to tell you about everything I learned (literally over 50 pages of notes taken in 4 days) that would take WAY too long.

So I really want to focus on one thing. 

Before you make any decisions you have to get into a high-level state. 

If you want to continue making low-level decisions that are ok, go ahead and stay unmotivated and slumped over in your chair.


If you want to learn how to make SUPER high-level decisions with confidence you are going to keep reading this.

Next, turn up the sound and find some amazing song you love that is FAST.  I mean FAST!  Make it a dance song like “Shake” by Mercy Me

The first thing you have to do is stand up.

Go ahead and stand up right now.

Now shake out your whole body. 

What are you waiting for? DO IT!

For real, shake out your body.

Ok now that you’ve done that. Jump a little. Jump higher, higher, higher.  Jump like you’re a little kid at a trampoline park and you have absolutely no fear! 

Stop watching everyone around you, just jump.

Ok now that you’ve done that I have one more thing you need to do.

I know you are thinking what is this guy thinking. I look like an idiot. Everyone is watching me.


If you want to make GREAT high-level decisions you have to do the things no one else is willing to do.

Make a noise that makes you happy.

Now make it louder.

Even louder.

Did you do it?  If you didn’t you won’t get the full effect.

Ok now jump up and down again, you got it just like a kid in a mud puddle.

Are you doing it?

Ok now make that noise that makes you happy again.


Again even Louder.

Alright, sit down. Now make some noise in your seat.  Move around like you were while you were standing up.  It should be so much that you want to stand up again.

Ok now take 10 minutes and get that task done.  Make those high-level decisions you were having trouble making before.

I know what you are thinking, there is no way that I am doing what Dan just recommended.

Here’s the thing: it is 100% up to you whether you do it or not.  But if you try it once and it works, what are you out. Looking a bit ridiculous and making GREAT decisions. 

I have a rule in my life that I got from Russell Brunson (if you don’t know him to look him up) I listen and do all things that giants who own a Helicopter and have stage presence tell me to do.

If it works for Tony Robbins it can work for you.  If it works for me it can work for you.

The key is that you have to believe that it will work.  You have to get your body, mind, and heart in the right state before you start making any decisions or you won’t make GREAT decisions.

At best they will be mediocre.

And let me ask you one thing, would you marry someone who is Mediocre? 


You want a 10, not a 6.

So if we wouldn’t marry someone who is 6 why should we make decisions that only rate at a 6?

Ever since I learned this directly from Tony at a live event I use it 100% every day.  When I get ready to go teach a course. I do it.

When I get ready to write something, I do it.

When we get ready to buy another business I do it.

When I get ready to go home and see my family I do it.

Because if I’m not present for them then I’m not living my best life.  We have one life to live and we get to choose how we live that life.  We can live in a mediocre state, or we can live in an EXCELLENT STATE. 

It’s our choice. Just like it’s our choice who we marry, where we work, what we do.

Now you get to decide, do I want to live the life of a 6 or do I want to live a 100+ plus life?

Personally, I’m going all in and playing HARD every day.

One last thing that I HAVE to tell you.

Ready for this one?  It’s really good.

Life is what we make it.  We can choose to be broke, poor, busy, tired, hungry, thirsty, not satisfied.


We can choose to be fulfilled, satisfied, wealthy, healthy, faithful, in love.

It’s all our choice.  And we make that decision every single day that we wake up.

One more quick question, have you ever felt that you love your significant other, but maybe not IN love with them anymore.

I think that we have all been there at some point in our relationship.

I know that I have. (I’m sure that Jenna has too in the past, I haven’t always been the best husband and father. I have made mistakes. Thank God she is a forgiving woman.)

Can you think of something that used to be cute but is now annoying to you? 

That’s a choice.  When you were in love those things didn’t bother you.  They were indeed cute little things that they did. And now that your state has changed, they are no longer cute. 

So what can we do to fix this?

Make a decision right now to change your state.  Do whatever it takes to get in the right state and stay there.

And when you start to fall out of that state, you have to make the conscious decision to change YOUR state. Not the state of those around you, but yours. 

Guess what?

After you change your state those around you will start to change as well!

So here’s to changing OUR state so that we can make GREAT HIGH-LEVEL decisions all the time.
