From the 10th to the 13th May, I attended the Tony Robbins event – Unleash the Power Within, in London. What can I say? It was incredible!
It began at 1pm on the Friday, and for 8-9 hours, Tony built us up to the firewalk that we would be doing that evening. The idea of it terrified me, but I was determined to do it. I quickly made contact with my friend Dutch, who I met at the Millionaire Mind Seminar in March. And we had a spare seat next to us, which a woman called Jill (of Hot Power Yoga) took up, and as it turned out, she had also been to the same seminar in March! It’s a small world… In fact, despite there being 5000 people there, I recognised and reconnected with quite a few people I knew!
It’s hard to fully explain what the weekend was really like to those who weren’t there. Tony has an incredible energy that just gets to your very core, he believes in you so much, that it’s very hard not to trust him and believe in yourself. Overall, the weekend was about changing your beliefs, and achieving a peak state. To achieve that peak state, a lot of dancing, cheering and jumping up and down was involved! It wasn’t one of my goals, but over the course of the four day event, I lost 4lbs!
Here’s some pictures:
This is me and my firewalking buddy Jill. We celebrated like crazy after doing the walk, as we had both been quite scared to do it! Neither of us felt a thing, it was incredible!
Making some noise with Dave!!
To continue the transformation, Jill, Dave and I made a pact to hold each other accountable to following our dreams and achieving our goals. Having a supportive peer group is very important, as you become the average of the five people you spend most of your time with!
Another amazing person I met at UPW was Magda, a beautiful soul with bumblebee wings! She is travelling the world and having incredible adventures, you can read about them on her blog.
So if you have ever thought about attending one of Tony Robbins’ event, DO IT. My life has changed in so many ways since that weekend, and I would recommend the experience to anyone who wants to transform their life for the better.
