In case you are one of the few who don’t know who Anthony Robbins is, or what he does…I have one word to describe him .. OUTSTANDING!
This past week I was blessed with being able to attend his “Unleash the Power Within” or “UPW” seminar in Chicago. A four day…total immersion, amazing experience! What happened there can’t be described with complete accuracy in a blog because it really is something that you need to FEEL and EXPERIENCE to understand. Although you may see pictures or video’s from one of his seminars, or even listen to the cd’s, it is most definitely NOT the same as being there in person and going through the journey of the transformation.
Now, I have to share with you , the money that was made by this event, Tony Robbins actually was able to feed 300,000 families with it here in the Chicagoland area..why was nothing mentioned about this in the news?! Because it isn’t “bad news”. For every single ticket that is sold, several families have food that may have not had it without his help. “In keeping with his philosophy that “the secret to living is giving” Robbins has partnered with the Greater Chicago Food Depository to help feed local families in need. For every ticket sold to Unleash the Power Within, the Anthony Robbins Foundation will donate funds for 18 meals to be delivered to local families. With that in motion, lives will be changed before guests even set foot into the event.”
Day 1: Turning Fear into Power – The Fire Walk Experience – Annihilate fears. Participants will have the opportunity to walk across a bed of hot coals between 1,200 and 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit to learn that there is absolutely nothing they cannot overcome.
My daughter was supposed to go with me but couldn’t because she started a new job and had to work, so right off the bat, I was facing TWO of my fears…going to a place I have never been to before by myself ( I always worry I’ll get lost), and, being around a large crowd of people who were going to be with others they knew with myself being alone (I was very uncomfortable being around groups of people who are talking and eating together with friends and family and I am by myself)..and this event had 5000 attendees!! That’s me, when I jump in, I jump in deep! Right away though I was able to connect with others though, the excitement and anticipation while waiting for the doors to open for seating was incredible as we all talked about who we were and began making connections with each other. Immediately, I began to understand that this was not going to be like anything I had ever anticipated…it was going to be MUCH better than I could have ever imagined. And in case you were wondering, YES! I did do the Firewalk and my feet were just fine!
Day 2: Turn Dreams into Reality – The Power of Success Conditioning
Participants get the clarity and power needed to accomplish whatever they set out to do.
Here is an excerpt from my journal about day 2 ” Another AMAZING day about business growth, changing your state with physiology. Holy how, we went from 4 increasing levels of being Angry (my partner in this exercise I think scared several people around us with his angry yelling and physical behavior) to a very happy “Celebrate” with party music, dancing, and jumping up and down.”
It was at this time I took advantage of having a coaching session with one of TR’s coaches there and just in that amount of time, I was able to see what I need to do to make my dreams and goals a reality!
Day 3: Breakthrough Day – Transformation Day
Designed to integrate attendees’ key decisions to ensure they move forward with so much strength and verve that they never look back.
“The breakthrough that transforms everything—from your
finances, to your relationships, to your health—is closer than you think. All you need is within you now. Connect with the people, the passion and the environment that will make it happen!”
A very emotional, very difficult day. This is the day the transformation is made ( if you decide to allow it) and you get your “Breakthrough”. I have several pages written in my journal about this day, obviously very personal. What was holding me back, what happens if I continue to not go for my dreams, what my big dreams and goals are, what could happen if I go for those and the life that I could be living in 5 or 10 years. This was the day I decided that I MUST get the money to get to “Life and Wealth Mastery” and then “Date With Destiny
Day 4: Power of Pure Energy – 12 Master Principles of a Vital Life
Finally, it’s all about stepping into a fresh new life with vitality and inexorable energy. By learning how to care for their bodies—life’s most precious gift—they enable themselves to prosper and live life to the absolute fullest
Unfortunately I had to leave a little early during this days events but I found it interesting how many people didn’t know very much about health, fitness, and wellness. How the foods we eat affect so many things from the health of our body systems, to our appearance, energy levels, and our moods. I found that I need to stop “considering” doing a cleanse and really do it. We have been asked to accept a 10 day Challenge of eating no meat for 10 days. This is something I am still considering. It was refreshing to hear Tony talk about his passion, the vitality of life.
