What would it take for you to walk over hot coals? For me, all it took was a little motivation from Tony Robbins.

Last week, I attended Unleash the Powers Within, hosted by Tony Robbins. I’ve been a fan of Robbins’ work for some time now, but never had the opportunity to attend one of his events. Unleash the Powers Within was held in West Palm Beach, which is just a few hours drive from my home in Tampa so I decided to go.

For those who are not familiar with him, Tony Robbins is an American author, entrepreneur and life coach. He is most well known for his live motivational seminars like the one I attended. In 2016 he released the popular documentary I Am Not Your Guru, which is now available on Netflix. If you have the time, check it out to get an idea of who Robbins is and what he does.

Aside from the motivation and inspiration I received over the days I was at the event, a highlight was walking on hot coals. This was something that I had never done before but was willing to give a try. The coals were spread over a distance of about 30 feet, which at the time sounded like a mile. When it came time to walk over the coals, there were hundreds of other participants around giving us encouragement and enhancing the trancelike stance that I felt. Before I knew it, I was across and felt nothing. It was almost so easy that it felt anticlimactic in a way. I only have a small blister on my foot to show for it, but I would totally do it again! This is the power of Tony Robbins.

Another thing that I did at the event was make two commitments. One was to be easy and the other was to be hard. For my easy commitment, I chose to start stretching my back daily, which is something I know I should do but do not make the time to do. My hard commitment was to grow my business while looking at things over a ten year window. I also got to do some networking at the event. I met a few people from the Philadelphia area like myself and connected with a few more people on Facebook after the event.

I can easily say that I would attend a Tony Robbins event again and recommend anyone seeking inspiration, motivation or is simply curious to check one out too, or even watch his documentary on Netflix.
