My life changed when I attended my first Tony Robbins event back in June of 2005. Tony is a master of helping people harness their innate emotional and physical resources in order to create lives of meaning and fulfillment.
Listed below are some of Tony’s most popular selected quotes and affirmations. (Tony refers to the affirmations he uses as “incantations.” Incantations are used just like positive affirmations, which you repeat multiple times daily in order to transform your thought patterns and activate the law of attraction. However, the difference is that incantations are expressed with emotional energy, intensity, and conviction. See further below for more info.)
Tony Robbins’ Famous Quotes:
“The Past does not equal the Future.”
“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”
“The quality of your life is a direct reflection of the expectations of your peer group. Choose your peers wisely.”
“The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the amount of uncertainty that you can comfortably live with.”
“It is in the realm of uncertainty, that your passion is found.”
“The only thing keeping you from getting what you want is the STORY you keep telling yourself about why you can’t have it.”
“The most powerful force in the human psyche is people’s need for their words and actions to stay consistent with their IDENTITY – how we define ourselves.”
“Ultimately the way to win the game of life, is found in only one thing: Our ability to choose meaning in any life circumstance. Become the master of meaning and you master your life.”
“What we link to pleasure and what we link to pain determines our destiny.”
“What is an Extraordinary Life? A life of meaning, a magnificent life, a life of joy, happiness, love, passion, success, and fulfillment. Life experienced on your terms.”
“Your biggest problem, is that you think the current problem you’re facing is your problem…”
“We always have a choice.”
“Change your habitual questions and change your destiny!”
“There are no unresourceful people, only unresourceful states.”
“Effective leaders know that resources are never the problem; it’s always a matter or resourcefulness.”
“People are bigger than anything that can happen to them.”
“Ultimately, no man or woman is happy unless they have found a way to contribute beyond themselves.”
“What’s talked about is a dream, What’s envisioned is exciting, What’s planned becomes possible, What’s scheduled is real.”
“There are no failures, only outcomes. As long as I learn something, I am succeeding.”
“If I can’t – then I must. If I must – then I will.”
“The words that we attach to our experience become our experience.”
“It’s not about getting what you want. It’s about experiencing what you really need by becoming more.”
“What you consistently speak with emotional intensity, you will experience, you will create, and you will become. The words that you speak with emotional conviction become the life you live – this is your heaven or this is your hell.”
“In order to take our lives to the next level, we must realize that the same pattern of thinking that has gotten us to where we are now will not get us to where we want to go.”
“Our goal is not to ignore the problems of life, but to put ourselves in better mental emotional states to not only come up with solutions but really meet the challenge and take action.”
“Forgiveness – this needs to be our greatest skill. The way to get good at forgiveness is: to be thankful for all the little things you see in the other person.”
“Every time you reach for food, ask yourself, ‘Will this cleanse or clog me?’”
“Begin to live as though your prayers are already answered.”
“The 2 master skills of life are: The Science of Achievement and The Art of Fulfillment.”
“The Art of Fulfillment is the ability to experience not only the thrill of the chase, but also the magic of the moment, the unbridled joy of feeling truly alive.”
“Lasting fulfillment is attained only through gaining insight into the core of our human nature, unleashing the power to understand, appreciate, and enjoy our lives at the deepest level.”
Tony Robbins’ Incantations:
Remember, incantations are expressed with emotional energy, intensity, and conviction, which is also known as being in a “Peak State.” It’s best to do your incantations while standing, or even better while jogging or working out; and say them out loud. Doing so will help ensure that the meanings and the intentions of the words you’re uttering become locked into the nervous system and sink deeply into the subconscious mind, bringing about lasting and powerful life-changes.
For a great example of how incantations are used, watch this powerful video of Tony teaching his “Now I am the voice” incantation at a live event:

“God’s wealth circulates in my life; God’s wealth flows to me in AVALANCHES of abundance; all my needs, desires, and goals are met INSTANTANEOUSLY by infinite intelligence; and I give thanks for ALL of my good now and for ALL of God’s riches, for I am ONE with GOD, and GOD is Everything!”
“I now command my subconscious mind to direct me in helping as many people as possible today to better their lives, by giving me the strength, the emotion, the persuasion, the humor, the brevity, whatever it takes to show these people and get these people to change their life now!”
“How can I appreciate…even more…all of the love and guidance that is inside of me right now…?” (Tony’s Primary Question)
“All I need is within me now
and I have the courage to see it through.”
“Every day and in every way, I’m getting better and better;
Every day and in every way, I’m getting stronger and stronger.”
“I love my life and I am so blessed.”

The Winners Creed:
(“The Winner’s Creed” is based on some of the affirmations found in Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich”; it comes from an older Tony Robbins’ event manual, from Life Mastery, Hawaii.)
I know that I have the ability to achieve my definite purpose in life:
therefore I demand of myself, persistent, continuous action towards
its attainment and I here and now promise to render such action.
I fully realize that no wealth or position will long endure
unless it is built upon truth and justice;
therefore I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit
all to whom it effects.
I am succeeding by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use
and the cooperation of other people.
I induce others to serve me because of my willingness to serve others.
I eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, cynicism, anger, and fear
by developing a true love for all humanity,
because I know that a negative attitude towards others
will never bring me success.
I cause others to believe in me because I believe in them
and believe in myself.
This is my creed, my quest.
To never stop striving for the top.
To always keep moving forward.
To always be the very best I can be.
I am the power. I am the magic. I cannot be stopped. I am a winner.
I promise to always be true to myself
because I am the creator and master of my universe
and I am responsible for making a positive difference in the world
and to the quality of life in it.
I live in constant and never-ending improvement.
