When you set a goal, what do you focus on? Odds are, you put most of your energy towards how you will achieve the results you’re after. But what if you shifted that focus from the how to the when. What if timing was that important? What if good timing could not only enhance your performance - it could actually give you the edge that you need to achieve your goal?
Welcome back to the Peak Performer season of the Tony Robbins Podcast. Today, we have a very special guest - New York Times bestselling author and one of the most influential business minds of our time, Daniel Pink.
Dan is widely regarded as one of the foremost thinkers in behavioral sciences. He’s upended conventional wisdom about what gives people drive and motivation. He’s challenged the value that society places on left brain over right brain skills. And he’s dispelled preconceived notions about what really makes a great salesman.
His latest work is no exception. In When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing - Dan offers profound insight into the importance of timing - and why most businesses, and most employees, really get it wrong.
Dan and I sit down and discuss the science behind timing - how it impacts your cognitive abilities, your mood, your state. And he reveals the secrets of how good timing can help you become the most efficient, effective version of yourself. And how business owners can leverage the time of day to create an optimal working environment for their employees.
Consider this episode a wake-up call. So that you can not only gain more clarity on why it’s not just about what you are doing, it’s really about when you are doing it that can make all the difference - letting you become the best version of yourself at work and at home.
What’s standing in your way of achieving your goals, your dreams? What is holding you back from taking that next step forward? For many of us, it’s fear. Fear of failure, fear of the unknowns. We become our own worst enemy, doubting ourselves into paralysis.
But imagine what your life could look like, if you were able to find a reason that was so much bigger than yourself to propel you forward. I’m not talking about money or material objects, I’m talking about a greater purpose and a resounding and unflagging faith that for you, there is no other option that to give it everything you have.
In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, you will hear a very special conversation between Tony and Eagles Quarterback, Nick Foles. Now this interview happened after Nick helped lead the Eagles to their Super Bowl Championship in 2018, where he was also named the game’s MVP. But what you’ll see is that even in spite of his incredible accomplishments, Nick’s sense of past failures and mistakes is never too far from his mind.
Nick reveals his constant battles with self-doubt and a fear of failure. In fact, it was this fear that almost kept him out of the NFL entirely. But through his faith and his family, Nick found a greater sense of purpose and strength that have helped him move forward. And he’s even adopted an entirely new perspective when it comes to fear.
He’s a firm believer that if he hadn’t experienced failure and pain in his past, he wouldn’t be where he is today. And along his journey, he’s seen how immensely important it is to be open, honest and transparent about your weaknesses. Because by acknowledging and even embracing your deepest fears, you actually free yourself, and can then grow into the person you were meant to be.
