What Really Matters in Life?

What Really Matters in Life?

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

1. Certainty : Assurance You Can Avoid Pain and Gain Pleasure

3. Significance : Feeling Unique, Important, Special or Needed

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.

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.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

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!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

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!

Jamyson Haug

Giovanna Scalzone
