Extracts from Unlimited Power by Anthony Robbins
CHAPTER 1:- Success
¾ To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of people and the affection of children;
to earn appreciation of honest critics;
to endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed
to know even one life breathed easier because you have lived.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
¾ Who you know, where you go and what you own are not the true measure of personal
¾ Ongoing process of striving to become more.
It is the opportunity to continue to grow emotionally, socially, spiritually, physiologically,
intellectually and financially, while contributing in some positive way to others.
¾ The road to success is always under construction…it is a progressive course, not an end
to be reached.
Common thread of successful people.. power. Ultimate power is the ability to produce results
you desire most, and create value for others in the process.
Eg Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, Kerry Packer, Rupert Murdoch.
Power in the ages used to be a physical thing…kings, armies, strength etc. Nowadays largest
sources of power is based on specialised knowledge. We are no longer in an industrial

goal, common bond, moving in different direction…no specific goals and targets.
Israel – a country mainly desert, minimal resources, limited people - economocally strong, a
net exporter etc etc. W
