Behind the Scenes at Tony Robbins UPW

Have you ever been to a Tony Robbins event?

As of today, I have attended 3 events as a participant and 2 as a crew member.

Each event is unique in experience and takeaways and the same in heart.

One of the speakers pointed out that a lot of us at the event are “like-minded” and what’s even more cool is we are also “like-hearted.”

When you find like-hearted people you can form connections that last a lifetime.

Here’s a recap of the first couple days at the event. I earned a toasty souvenir.

As crew member, our primary purpose is to help the participants have a great experience, and to help the event to run smoothly.

Often we want to be involved in the actual event content {because we’re fans}; however, certain roles require us to be out of the main room.

Our leader assured us that we would “Hear what we needed to hear.” and would be in the right place to catch a lesson if we needed it.

He was right.

I caught some amazing quotes that I needed to hear to make a shift:

“Don’t judge too soon what things mean.”

“Trade your expectations for appreciation and your whole life will change in that moment.”

“The path of least resistance will never make you proud.”

The Firewalk

Tony Robbins is known for his fire walks {among other things, obvi} This event was my 3rd opportunity to walk on fire and of course I made sure I could participate!

As I approached the fire lanes, I scanned the options and picked the one that looked most orange.  Sounds a little crazy now. LOL

I got myself into a peak state to walk across the fire and quickly thought “hot hot hot.”

That’s not good!  I was supposed to be in such a peak state that I didn’t notice the heat. I made it to the end and “wiped my feet and celebrated.” YAY!

Afterward, I found some nice souvenirs that would allow me to make some good connections with the minor medical team and a couple others who were checking on me.

As we learned in the conference – IT’S OUR CHOICE – to be in a grumpy mood about a couple blisters or to find a way to make it empowering.

Empowering is so much more enjoyable to me.

Within 24 hours, I was back to normal with no extra treatment needed – no big deal.

I look forward to my next crew event and will challenge myself to try firewalking again!

Would you walk on fire!?
