Dreams of Destiny:
A Special Message From Anthony Robbins
We all have dreams…We all want to believe deep down in our souls that we have a special gift, that we can make a difference, that we can touch others in a special way, and that we can make the world a better place. At one time in our lives, we all had a vision for the quality of life that we desire and deserve. Yet, for many of us, those dreams have become so shrouded in the frustrations and routines of daily life that we no longer even make an effort to accomplish them.
For far too many, the dream has dissipated—and with it, so has the will to shape our destinies. Many have lost that sense of certainty that creates the winner’s edge. My life’s quest has been to restore the dream and to make it real, to get each of us to remember and use the unlimited power that lies sleeping within us all.
I’ll never forget the day it really hit me that I was truly living my dream. I was flying my jet helicopter from a business meeting in Los Angeles, traveling to Orange County on the way to one of my seminars. As I flew over the city of Glendale, I suddenly recognized a large building, and I stopped the helicopter and hovered above it. As I looked down, I realized this was the building that I’d worked in as a janitor a mere twelve years ago!
In those days, I had been concerned whether my 1960 Volkswagen would hang together for the 30-minute trip to work. My life had been focused on how I was going to survive; I had felt fearful and alone. But that day, as I hovered there in the sky, I thought, “What a difference a decade can make!”
I did have dreams back then, but at the time, it seemed they’d never be realized. Today, though, I’ve come to believe that all my past failures and frustrations were actually laying the foundation for the understanding that has created the new level of living I enjoy.
All these experiences have given me gifts that I’m now able to contribute to others. As I continued my flight south along the coastal route, I spotted dolphins playing with the surfers in the waves below. It’s a sight that I treasure as one of life’s special gifts.
Finally, I reached Irvine, California. Looking below, I was a little disturbed when I saw that the off ramp to my seminar was jammed with bumper-to-bumper traffic for more than a mile. I thought to myself, “Boy, I hope whatever else is going on tonight gets started soon so that the people coming to my seminar arrive on time.”
