On this episode of Your Retirement Elevated podcast with Scott Dougan, we’re sharing some wisdom from Tony Robbins, a motivational speaker and coach who has had a major impact on our life. 


Tony released a video called “5 Keys to Living Your Best Post-Pandemic Life.” We shared it with our team and got so much positive feedback that we wanted to share it here with you. 


One of his best pieces of advice is to feed your mind for at least 30 minutes a day, but you must pursue that knowledge and not let outside distractions pursue you. Tony also recommends giving more than you expect. 


If you’re ever wondering why you’re alive and what you’re doing here, try feeding your mind. It will make an incredible difference. When you’re in a bad place, there are five things you can do to get to a better place.


Stand guard to the door of your mind


Who do you surround yourself with? What are you reading? We live in a world where the media wants your eyeballs. We live in a culture of fear. 


Start a new daily practice. Read 30 minutes a day. Great ideas have to be pursued. Success leaves clues. If you want things to get better, you have to get better. 


Progress equals happiness. You can achieve everything in the world and still wonder, “Is this all there is?” The only way you stay happy and excited is to keep making progress.


Take Care of Your Body 


You have to feed and strengthen your body. If you don’t take care of your body, it can really mess up your mind. Strong emotions can be physical. Doing something, even if it’s simply 5 or 10 minutes of activity, will immensely help. This is also about developing discipline, strengthening your mind and body connection. 


Role Models 

Look for role models. A lot of people come from humble beginnings and it’s important to them to find role models that inspire their lives. Role models can remind you there is always a way to reach your goals. 


Massive Action 

Maybe you are constantly asking yourself “Where Do I Start?” or “How Do I Start?” The important thing is that you actually do start. You want to get things in motion. It’s about momentum! 


Give More 

Do what is right. Do something for others. “It’s not about me, it’s about we.” Giving is not about brownie points, but about connecting with others and embracing the human spirit.
