The RPM Strategy is a Tony Robbins Concept. he talks about it often as an action Plan, a Mnemonic device and a metaphor to help you get your mind wrapped around creating a road-map for success in any area.

Steve Vai said It best in his 2011 Guitar Center Video “How to be successful.”
The first step in creating/achieving success In anything in Life is to understand what it is that you really want. You need to have a clear picture of what it is that the end result will look/sound like.
But you need to take things one step further and you need to ask yourself “Why” you want to achieve this outcome, in answering the “Why” this is where you will find your motivation.
Every Role Model in the Business world I personally know of and Follow all achieve Success through a process of Deconstructing or reverse engineering their personal Vision for success. That’s what The RPM Model is all about. Success is attainable but often we need a reboot of system in in order to really get our heads wrapped around a new way of thinking about things. This is why I like The RPM Model. It is simple, It works and It creates a metaphor that empowers your mind to create success.
This is the stage of your mastermind/Brainstorming session where you get to set your goals. I want you to Go back and Look at what you wrote in the “R” Portion of this model. Find the Key “actionable” elements in your vision. elements like
for example: ” I want to attract fans from all over the world”. Ok, Who are these fans? you’ll need an Ideal customer/fan Profile and Avatar, make one of your goals to sit down and discover who your Ideal Super Fan is, Who do you really want in your tribe? and why?
So begin By making a Goal to create a ” #1-Fan Profile” That is an actionable Goal.
This is why it it important to be Specific in the “R” Portion of this model, You’ll need Objective, actionable elements from which to create goals.
This is the part of your Model, Your Career map where you execute the plan, But There is reason That Tony Has chosen The phrasing that he has in this portion of the Model. “Massive Action” It is important that in order for any of this to matter you have To “all in” You have to dedicate yourself to this and see yourself executing your plan with the tenacity of a pit bull.This is how success happens, Success often happens after the Grind.
