From the Publisher:
It's been ten years since Tony Robbins' huge international bestseller Awaken the Giant Within
. It's sold millions of copies, and his personal development audio series has sold 25 million cassettes. His new book, Inner Strength: Harnessing the Power of Your Six Primal Needs
, is going to be his next blockbuster. In it, Robbins looks at how emotions are the driving force behind all human action and experience. The most sublime acts of creation and the most depraved behaviors are products of human emotion unleashed. And within each one of us is the potential for the whole range of those emotions. Most of us are ruled by our emotions. This book shows you how to master the powerful emotional forces that drive everything you do.
In Inner Strength, Robbins takes you on a journey into your deepest self, and into the next stage of your evolution--where instead of ignoring or suppressing your emotions, you embrace all of them, good and bad. To deny the full extent of your emotional life is to deny the essence of your true nature as a human being. We are always praised for our intellectual and physical braun--and never encouraged to develop our emotional strength, even though most of our decisions, actions, and reactions are governed by our feelings. Now, Robbins challenges you to strip away your intellect and your daily routines to get at your essence--what's behind your drive to achieve? Is it the desire to find love? To raise your children well? To be financially free? What are you doing it all for? To get more out of life, you have to own your own nature. Here, Robbins shows you how to explore your full emotional palette, and to familiarize yourself with which "muscles" are strong, and which weak. Once you identify your primary emotional patterns--the emotions that drive everything you do--you'll see how those emotions are triggered by your beliefs and by the meaning you attach to events. If you change the meaning, you can change how you feel--and your whole life. But this means you have to decide which emotions to exercise. When a challenge arises, will you look to fear, anger, frustration, and anxiety? Or will you flex your determination, playfulness, courage, and compassion? All of these are at your disposal. It's your choice. Robbins has learned all of this firsthand--after having succeeded in the traditional, external ways, for years he still felt unfulfilled. Gradually, he came to appreciate how essential it is to honor our feelings. And he made another discovery: When you develop emotional strength, you not only become happier and more fulfilled--you actually become more productive. With the right emotional muscles, you can obtain any resource you need.
