Lessons I Learned in Fiji
I spent the past week in Namale, Tony Robbins' private resort in Fiji. And the teachings I learned there are lifelong. Here are a couple I want to share to you.
1. Instead of focusing on the reasons why you can’t do it or why it’s not possible, focus on just one thing why you can do it and why it’s possible.
2. Surround yourself with people who are positive.

Good morning everyone.
I just, getting back from a run and I’ll give Facebook’s algorithm a couple minutes to catch up with everything. So, this past week has been incredible.
Going to Namali, which is Tony Robbins’ private resort, in Fiji, was incredible. The people there were spectacular. And, the teachings there are lifelong. I’ve been practicing a lot of the teachings that everyone was sharing for a long time, but sometimes we get a little jaded and a little. Sometimes we get a little jaded, and we get a little, ah, you know, caught up with what’s going on in our world and what’s happening with us.
So, a couple teachings that they were sharing and that were abundant in Fiji were, you have to remain positive, and don’t focus on all the reasons why you can’t do something.
Sure there’s gonna be times in your life where you’re facing a challenge, or coming up to something that you’ve never done before, but to think of all the reasons why you can’t do it, is just going to stop you right in your tracks. And, what you need to do is think about, just the one reason why you can do this.
What’s one thing that you’ve done in your life that you’ve never done before that turned out successful?
Maybe it was something that you were, that you did when you were seven years old, and that’s the only time that you’ve done it but now, fast forward to today, you could take that teaching, and take that past self, or that past experience, and live in that right now. So, don’t think about all the things or all the reasons why you can’t do something. Focus on just the one reason why you can do it. The second is you have to, and which, what Tony describes as proximity is power.
You have to surround yourself with people of like-minded thoughts with high driven success, goals or high achievers, because what will happen is, lemme put it this way: if you travel abroad, a lot of people think it’s scary. Oh, I’m going to a different country, oh they don’t speak my language there, oh you know there’s, there’s something scary in the unknown. But what a lot of people don’t realize is that, most people in this world, are good people. It’s only the bad people that get the news and the attention. So, that’s why it feels like that there’s more bad people in this world. Most people are really good people, and they’d be willing to help you whether you’re new to a country, or new to a situation, or new to an environment that you’ve never been in before.
So, now that most people are good, there is one flaw in people. One flaw in people is that they’re, most people are just unhappy. Most people are negative. Most people are, they have good intentions but they’re stuck in this hamster wheel. In this trap of negativity. And that happens so often here in the US and in our culture. So, it’s surrounding yourself with people who are positive, who want to bring out the best in people. Not the people who want to bring out the best in people but, you know, have a negative spin on things, or try to think about all the ways that things can go wrong and, you know, are hedging their best that way.
I don’t think that’s the mindset of a growth mindset. You have to surround yourself with people who, who don’t bring you down, who don’t suck you down, who aren’t stressed out all the time, who aren’t, who aren’t, you know, thinking of all the possibilities, who are only thinking of ways to hold on to what they have right now. So, those are a couple key things. One, stay positive, and two, surround yourself with people who are positive. So this morning is positive vibes only.
