Have you heard of Tony Robbins? If you have, and many of you will have, you will either be a firm believer in his work, a bit indifferent or you may even think he is a powerful leader of a cult……whatever your thoughts, the man is incredibly powerful and apparently earns $14,280,000 per year after lifestyle, taxes and other expenses. He must be doing something right.
So who is he and what does he do? Tony is an American life coach, self-help author and motivational speaker. He became well known through his infomercials and self-help books, Unlimited Power and Awaken The Giant Within.
Robbins writes about subjects such as health and energy, overcoming fears, building wealth, persuasive communication, and enhancing relationships.
Robbins began his career learning from many different motivational speakers, and promoted seminars for his personal mentor, Jim Rohn. He is deeply influenced by neuro-linguistic programming.
In May I took part in ‘Unleash the Power Within’. A four day seminar/workshop/life changing experience (as some have described it to be). I didn’t know much about him or his work, but felt compelled to you attend…..and I have to say I am so glad that I did. It was incredibly intense and for four days 5000 of us were sat in the Excel centre listening to the master tell us how we could, in essence, change our lives. It was amazing, and if you are open to it, it really can be life changing. I can only describe the vibe as being at a huge rave, just without the alcohol or drugs. Loads of dancing, hi-fiving your fellow ‘UPW’ delegates and hugging strangers.
I am now a fully fledged fire-walker after walking across hot coals on the first evening of being there….just by getting into my ‘peak state’. Powerful and inspiring to think that I could do that. So what else could I do?? The list is endless!
