Inspirational Wednesday -Know Your Outcome

Rocky Balboa & DogMany times and in many different ways I have said on this blog and elsewhere that in order to give yourself the best chance of success in any area of your life, start by having a clear, positive image of your desired outcome.

One of my favorite stories about someone knowing their outcome and taking massive action to get it is the story of how Sylvester Stallone broke into Hollywood and the movie business.  There have been a lot of versions of the story told, but one of the best and I think most accurate comes From Tony Robbins after he made Rocky tell his to him story over dinner one night.

Tony Robbins is a big believer in the importance of “knowing your outcome”.  In the video below, he recounts the story told to him by Sylvestor Stallone about how he got his “big break”.  The video is a little longer than I normally post (a little over nine minutes), however since I consider this one of the greatest stories ever told about how someone overcame all odds to achieve their dream, I think it is worth the investment of your time.

Even if you think you know the story, I think you will learn some facts that make the story even more amazing and will inspire you even more to achieve your own dreams.   So as you sit back relax and enjoy this inspirational video, think about “that thing” that is holding you back.  What action are you prepared to take make sure your desired outcome becomes a reality in your life?
