Five (5) Quotes From Chapter 1 UnShakeable by Tony Robbins:
1. “The winners of the financial game know that they can’t control the future, either.”
2. “…they focus so intently on what they can control that they’ll thrive no matter what happens to the economy or the financial markets.”
3. “You need to learn the rules of the financial game, who the players are, what their agendas are, where you can get hurt, and how you can win. This knowledge can set you free.”
4. “When people are forced to make financial decisions, they often act out of fear—and any decision made in a state of fear is likely to be wrong.”
5. “But the truth is that knowledge is only potential power. You and I both know that it’s useless if you don’t act on it.”
Tony Robbins’ reminder regarding financial freedom:
Because you can’t win this game unless you have the emotional fortitude to get in it and stay in it for the long term.Unshakeable, Chapter 1
