I was fortunate enough to fulfill a lifelong desire to attend a live Tony Robbins event last weekend. Unleash the Power Within is Tony’s signature event. I am very grateful for the opportunity to immerse myself in four days of life changing experiences. Some wonder if it’s a cult. I don’t know about that. What I do know is that the UPW immersion experience turns cultural norms on its head and push us out our comfort zone. The experience teaches us that when we eliminate limiting beliefs and put fear in its place, we can accomplish anything.
Here are my 3 takeaways:
- When we are caught up with the challenges of life, we cannot focus on growth and contribution. Tony expound on the six human needs, one of which is certainty. When life is a continuous struggle, solo moms only seek certainty. Unfortunately, the more we search for certainty, the less certain and the more fearful we become. This fear prevents us from growing. We are so busy trying to control everything that we forget that we need to grow. It is any wonder then that we never have the time or the resources to contribute. Yes, we contribute to our children’s lives. But if we never get beyond striving for certainty, we never seem to be able to contribute to a broader audience.
- The results we get in life is a reflection of the standard we set for ourselves. That one hit me right in the gut. Why can’t I lose weight? Maybe because I don’t exercise enough? What standard do I set for myself? If I tell myself that being overweight is not where I want to be. And, if I get determined that I’m going to lose the extra weight. Then my standard could be a healthy weight. If I don’t have or set a standard then I will most likely remain overweight and unhealthy.
- I can walk on fire!!! I’m a fire walker, y’all. I dropped my fears and walked across hot coals. Now, I was really fearful of walking across hot coals but I was not going to go all the way to this event and not participate in its signature activity. No way. I stepped up and punched fear in the face.
Unleash the Power Within is a life enhancing experience that keeps you on your toes, literally for four days. I now have some very valuable tools to keep me leveling up until the next immersion. I also lost three pounds!!!
So, if your life has been in a tailspin or you frankly don’t know what to do next, why not attend a Tony Robbins event. You will stretch your mind and body to where you never dreamed possible.
