I’m back from my Tony Robbins
course, seminar, training, event in London this weekend and it was quite an experience.
I had some preconceived ideas about what it would be like. It would be highly american. People yelling and jumping for no reason. Rock concert atmosphere. Tony Robbins jumping wildly on stage.
It was all true.
Multiplied by 10.
And it totally, absolutely, convincingly and magnificently rocked. I can highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn something about themself and get the energy and some tools to do something about it.
The thing is, I can’t tell you much about what actually happens, because if you’re not there, actively participating it just sounds really, really weird. When you’re there, doing it, pushing yourself to do it to the max, it works. And it makes total, perfect sense that it would.
I will tell you my main lessons from the event:
- Personal change starts most effectively from the body. Want to put your mind in a specific mental state? Put your body in the state associated with that mental state -the mind then follows. This is based on NLP.
- A physical and mental peak state can be created in seconds.
- I have been getting too comfortable. I’be been forgetting, that I actually like taking risks and being in situations that I don’t know the outcome of. I want more of that and less comfort and certainty.
Tony Robbins himself is a great, great speaker. I agree with 90-95% of what he says, but I agree 110% with how he says it. He’s at turns funny, gentle, philosophical, technical and then funny again. He’s also on stage for hours on end with total presence and energy. He speaks to and activates all the senses and of course the body. It’s never boring and always surprising.
This experience has completely changed my perception of what is possible in a workshop/training/course format. I totally loved being there, and I will sorely miss the feeling of going totally wild along with such a great crowd. Because being among 10.000 people who are totally fired up, happy, energetic and who are constantly high-fiving, encouraging and hugging each other feels really, really good :o)
