How to future-proof your career

Tony Robbins and future of work expert Elatia Abate on how to find fulfillment in the face of disruption

If you want to be successful, you must find a way to add more value than anyone else.

The average American will spend over 90,000 hours at work over the course of their lifetime – and a staggering 87% of those Americans self-report having no passion for the job they do. 
 

We are working our lives away – and it’s a recipe for stress, weight gain, strained relationships and poor health. We’re losing sleep, and ultimately losing this game of life. We weren’t put on this earth to simply exist as drones at work. We were put here to make a difference: to care, to love, to contribute, to create. Isn’t it time you ditched these statistics and stepped up to a career that sets your soul on fire? 
 

You know that you want more. And whether that means getting a promotion, landing your ideal job, starting the company you’ve been dreaming of, or taking your business to the next level, you’re in good company. Tony Robbins has discovered that the world’s most successful people have one quality in common: successful people have an insatiable hunger. 
 

But hunger is not enough: you must also take massive, determined action. This year, stop settling for a career that doesn’t sate your hunger – decide to become someone or create something that adds massive value. The part of life we call “work” cannot be separated from everything else. When you are mission driven and alive with passion, your work becomes congruent with your life – and this is where life can become truly magnificent.

Professional MMA Fighter

"There’s no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we are all equals as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that’s that. I am not talented, I am obsessed."

Hear Tony and Conor discuss how his incredible drive has pushed him to become one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time.

Identify your specific, measurable business or career goals.

  • Ask yourself, What do I really want? What’s the outcome I’m after? The more precise, the stronger it is. (For example: There’s a difference between “I want to get a new job” vs. “I want a career track job in AI that pays $200k+ a year”).
  • How will you know you’ve achieved it? How will you measure success? Whenever possible, quantify your results, and put a timeframe around it. Remember, a goal is a dream with a deadline.
  • Is there someone else who already has the results you’re after? That can help you identify the criteria of what you consider successful. Write these down.

Discover the compelling reason you want these results.

  • What kind of trigger words really motivate you to reach your goal? What are some words around career success that excite you? Free, powerful, successful, accomplished, role model, problem solver, contributor? What words really make you want to do something?
  • Ask yourself, Why do I want this? What is my real purpose? Why is this not just a “should,” but a must for me? Associate to the “why” of what you are doing.
  • What will this give me? How will it make me feel? The emotional quality of purpose makes what you will do not only sustainable, but powerful. It’s what will push you through the inevitable obstacles.

Your massive action plan

  • Once you know the exact result you are committed to achieving, as well as why you must achieve it (the purpose), you can now create a MAP – a Massive Action Plan – to actually get there. Ask: What specific actions do I need to take to achieve this result?
     
  • Remember: There are many ways to achieve a result. If one set of actions doesn’t do it, another set will. And, often only a small number of your actions will make the biggest difference in your progress toward your goal – 20% of what you do in life makes 80% of the difference. Once you find a new leadership or skill building strategy that works, double down on it. And abandon what doesn’t work.
