This past weekend, I was part of the crew that helped at the Tony Robbins’s Unleash The Power Within (UPW), in West Palm Beach, Florida. I was one of nearly 300 people, who assisted to help the participants have a life changing weekend.
In 2009, I attended my life changing weekend in New Jersey.
Here is some of what I was reminded of this weekend, as part of the crew that helped the participants.
1. Hang around with like minded people
Our world is filled with negativity. Think about what you hear or watch on the news, talk radio and the numerous TV shows that highlight criminals and crimes. If you aren’t careful about what you see and hear, it will creep into your subconscious mind, and you’ll be thinking negative and disempowering thoughts. Always be on guard and protect this valuable part of you. Hanging around with people who think and perform at a higher standard than the average will help you. Find or create a peer group that will positively influence you.
2. Stop and readjust
Sometimes, even with all the training and education I’ve had, it’s good to hear it again. To be reminded of new research or a technique I forgot about is always useful information. This past weekend helped readjust my mind, body and the course of my future. (Along with help me better serve my clients.)
3. Get it in your nervous system
Visualize and repeat your positive affirmations and goals to yourself every single day. Repeating them over and over again will help you reprogram some messages you heard that may be disempowering you. As a matter of fact, research has (finally) proven, when you stand in a powerful pose it will affect your neuroendocrine system or the natural chemicals in our bodies.
4. If I can walk on fire…
Yes, I have walked on 1200°F coals back in 2009 and I did not miss the opportunity to do it again this past weekend. It’s a great metaphor, if I can walk on fire, I CAN DO ANYTHING! All I have to do is set my mind on it and take action.
5. Everyday you are getting better
If you make small improvement each and everyday, over the course of time, it adds up. Take one penny and double it everyday for month, 30 days. Guess how much that will be worth at the end of the 30 days? $5,368,709.00.
This is only one part of my education and training, which affected my style of results coaching and how I deliver Master Classes. Technology has greatly improved our lives, but our brains still work as they did over a thousand years ago. We are finally tapping into and understanding how to use our brains and nervous system to help us succeed.
