“Things flow to you when you do your part first.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game
“Attaining possessions is not the goal. Money itself is not the goal. Our worth is not measured by the weight of our bank accounts but, rather, by the weight of our souls. The path to money, the places money can take us, the time and freedom and opportunity money can bring—these are what we’re really after.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game
“Always remember the ultimate truth: life is not about money, it’s about emotion. The real goal is to have the lifestyle you want, not the things. When you die, someone else gets those things anyway. They’re not yours. I have no illusions: as much as I cherish and enjoy ‘my’ resort in Fiji, I know I’m just the caretaker. Someday someone else will own this property.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game

Introduction: Why is the ego the enemy?
—— —— ——
The ego is the sense we have of our self-esteem and our self-worth. When it comes to moving forward in life, Ryan Holiday, author of Ego is the Enemy argues that both in success and in failure, ego only gets in the way and holds us back. The time we spend in our own heads comparing ourselves to others and measuring our esteem is time that is distracted from the real work we could be doing—the work of producing our art and cultivating our life’s task.
“Disappointment is inevitable when you are attempting to do anything of great scale. Instead, let your disappointments drive you to find new answers; discipline your disappointments. Learn from every failure, act on those learnings, and success become inevitable.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game
“Money is nothing more than a reflection of your creativity, your capacity to focus, and your ability to add value and receive back. If you can find a way to create value—that is, add value for a massive number of people—you will have an opportunity to have a massive amount of economic abundance in your life.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game
“The only way to become wealthy, and stay wealthy, is to find a way to do more for others than anyone else is going in an area that people really value. If you become a blessing in other people’s lives, you too will be blessed. Money is only one of those blessings, but it is a blessing. It’s simply another form of freedom and abundance.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game
