Tony Robbins: Incantations vs. Affirmations for Embodying Success

Tony Robbins explains how the difference between winning and losing could just be a difference of a millimeter, and cites examples of how the gap between the two may not be that unbridgeable. Tony also relates his own story and how he turned his life around by using incantations. An incantation is different from an affirmation, which is usually a mere repetition of statements in one’s head. An incantation is a way of embodying the truth of a statement and involves a change in state and physiology.


“What a great belief system that when all hell’s breaking loose and nothing’s working that you’re only one millimeter off. ‘Cause most people think it’s impossible so they give up, isn’t that true?… A very powerful belief to leave today with will be: nothing’s working, I’m one millimeter away. What little thing I’m gonna change when i do it changes everything. Because I’m heading in this direction, I make this little shift, you pick that up an hour from now, a day from now, a week from now, a month from now, you have a  totally different destination from that direction.”

(Incantation that Tony used to change his life around:) “God’s wealth is circulating in my life. His wealth flows to me in avalanches of abundance. All my needs, desires, and goals are met instantaneously because I AM one with God and God is everything!”
