My business partners and I were at Las Vegas yesterday for attending one of the most excited seminars that I was waiting for so long; we learned business strategies from best of the best, Tony Robbins. This event is exclusive and special. Not all people can qualify to attend and only selected top in our business are allowed to attend this event. In this event, we learned not only business principles that vital to create success in business but also learned his mindset that allowed him to get up to the top trainer.




Although all contents that we learned were worth every penny (Exciting thing is that company paid all of the expenses!!), one thing that Tony Robbins said strike to my head. This is not only relevant to the business but also to life as well…  Tony Robbins said to all audiences.


It’s not lack of resources. It’s lack of resourcefulness


If you hear this, you may feel, what’s that mean right? Then, he elaborates…


Have you ever heard this?


  • I can’t succeed because of no time
  • I can’t succeed because of no money
  • I can’t succeed because of lack of technology
  • I can’t succeed because of no background
  • I can’t succeed because of families
  • Etc


He mentioned those are all resources. Failure does never come from resources but resourcefulness. Resourcefulness is your


  • Creativity
  • Determination
  • Commitment
  • Desire
  • Caring
  • Etc


If you notice, those are all coming from inside of you not outside of you. Tony said that we have to master the internal world (your resourcefulness). If not, then external world (Resources) does not matter at all…  And, I totally agree…


Success is never coming from resource itself but how we will use the resources that we currently have. When he said that I remembered Tony Robbins’ mentor Jim Rohn said…


It is our philosophical set of the sail that determines the course of our lives. To change our current Direction, we have to change our philosophy, not our circumstances.


If you have determination, desire, creativity and commitment (Resourcefulness), you will do whatever it takes to find the way to make things (resources) work. Success is never coming from external factors but always comes from inside of you.


This principle is so critical for our success in anything in life, whether success is business or life. We all need to ask ourselves (especially when we are in the unfavorable situation), are we blaming circumstances (resource) for our own problems? As Tony Robbins said to all of us, take 100% responsibility of what happen to us. If you will change, everything will change for you.
