Are you the one in control of your life? Or are you being swept away by the forces of life? In his powerful self help book “Awaken The Giant Within” Tony Robbins the most famous self help guru presented a way for the reader to take control of their life. 

To be honest I waited sometime before reading this book because I was skeptical of Tony Robbins. To an outsider he comes off a little bit too hype. However around the same time I also felt like direction was missing in my life and so I tried it out. Turns out Tony is popular for good reason! I was really blown away by how much value was inside this book. The book presented me with life vision, emotional control, how to set goals and much more. To this day I still use it. If you’re looking to improve yourself and your life then give this book a shot. That means trying out everything Tony suggests even if it seems weird. Give it a shot, you have nothing to lose. 

Making this song was really difficult, probably because there is so much knowledge inside the book. It was really hard to condense it down without leaving important things out. So much wisdom! Starting out I was freestyling different lines based on parts of the book. Then I had to condense all of my lyrics down to get the right flow and message. It really went through so many versions. Towards the end my voice started to improve and also my recording setup had an upgrade. So I recorded again, and again! 

The construction of the song was really inspired by producers like Flume with their future bass styles. That production was really comlex and took ages. For the chorus I hired a singer called “Tashabu” who I had sung my lyrics to. We played around with the phrasing and got a cool take.
