Lodestar Solutions will Unleash the Power Within
Recently, some members of the Lodestar Solutions team went to Anthony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within event in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. I just wanted to take a few minutes to give you my take on the 4-day event. I’m not going to go into great detail, but I’d like to give you a quick impression of what the event is about.
Day 1 starts with check-in at the convention center and you can sense that people are very excited about the event starting. Around 1 PM, people are starting to be let in and, quite frankly, it seems like a sporting event or concert. Everyone is cheering and ready to go. Music goes on and, shortly thereafter, Tony Robbins is on stage and the place is rocking! As we get into the meat and potatoes of Day 1, we do a number of different exercises that turn fear into power and the day comes to an end well after midnight with a fire walk. Yes, everyone who wants to will walk on hot coals up to 2,200 degrees. Day 1 was a really good day, it was fun yet introspective, and the fire walk was a great experience, although it happened so quickly I wondered if I had really done it.
Day 2 starts in a very similar manner, but is led by Joseph McClendon with a number of videos featuring Tony Robbins. This day is focused on “The Power of Success Conditioning”, where you can develop a clear target for what you want out of life and why. This day is setting you up for the 3rd day, which is called “Transformation Day”. Day 2 ended about 8:30 PM, another 12 hour day!
Day 3 is easily the most intense day of the event. You uncover beliefs that are limiting your life; but to do this, you must go back to those limits and replace them with the results you want in your life. I’m not going into more detail about this day other than to say that it is intense and long. I think Day 3 ended about 1 AM.
Day 4 is about living a Vital Life and how to increase your energy by eating healthier and living healthier. Day 4 is pretty mellow and not very intense compared to the others, but does provide an interesting look into the makeup of your body and allows you to put into action your newly learned information.
Overall, I thought it was a fantastic experience. Some of the exercises were not for me, but I think that is to be expected. Tony Robbins is by far and away the best story teller I have ever listened to. He can certainly captivate an audience, as evidenced by the over 6000 people from 20+ countries who stayed for pretty much the whole 50 hour event.
Would I recommend Unleash the Power Within? YES! I think it is something everyone should attend once in their life. You meet lots of interesting people, and you learn a number of things that you can put to use in your own life, on the job or anywhere else.
