While each of us are unique, there are universal truths - In the same way that we share a similarly functioning biology, there are also six fundamental needs that every human has in common.
“All behavior is just an attempt to meet those six needs - but the different ways people meet these needs are unlimited.” - Tony Robbins
This manifests in positive ways like saving money, eating healthy and exercising and basically doing things to maintain equilibrium in your life.
But Tony explains that there are downsides to all the needs; the downsides to certainty would be not trying new things, or not being open to new people.
At first it almost seems like a contradiction to the first point, and in the contrary way of humans it is.
However, this made more sense to me when it was phrased as ‘variety’.
Basically, it’s the need we have to seek out new experiences - new friends, new jobs, new things to learn - with the downside of instability or impulsive behaviour.
Everyone wants to feel significant- you have to choose carefully about how you achieve this feeling.
“Using the power of decision gives you the capacity to get past any excuse to change any and every part of your life in an instant,” cautioned Robbins.
To satisfy this need in a way that will make us feel good in the long run we must choose to be productive, not destructive.
Connection and Love: a strong feeling of closeness or union with someone or something.
Connection can be a positive thing, of course, but the negative ways it tends to show up fall into the categories of shallow friendships.
Growth: an expansion of capacity, capability or understanding.
‘Motion equals emotion’ - It’s a very old idea that self-esteem comes from your actions and a sense of achievement.
“Remember, rewards come in action, not in discussion.” - Tony Robbins
Contribution: a sense of service and focus on helping, giving to and supporting others.
“Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy, true fulfilment.” - Tony Robbins
While the top four needs in this list above are what shape our personality - with the last two (growth and contribution) are what is shaping our spiritual needs, each human subconsciously puts these six needs in their own order of importance.
“Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes instantly.”

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
