LIFE DOESN’T COME WITH A ROAD MAP
But if you ever need someone to wake you up and get you driving along the right path in life
Anthony Robbins is your man.
Want to join me VIRTUALLY on a road trip to Orlando?
I’ve been invited as a guest of Mr. & Mrs. Robbins and will be seated in the chairman invite seats at THE FREAKIN’ FRONT !!!!!!!
* Yes, I screamed that *
* Yes, I am doing a full body freak out *
Want to do the freak out dance with me? We can freak out together all week!
P.S. Palm trees already give me full body shivers of awesomeness. Oh…. how I love palm trees.
Note : Palm trees are like tall statues of Valium to a Canuck. We normally see cold winds and naked trees at this time of year. We see tons of squirrels too, but I’m not going to talk about that.
Our treehouse may have a panic attack.
Spending time at a Tony Robbins event AND surrounded with palm trees is like :
- Adding caramel to popcorn.
- Gin to Tonic.
- Icing to cake.
- Pina to Colada
- Coconut oil to George Clooney.
Did I just say my deepest dark Clooney wishes in my outside voice? My bad.
I attended the San Jose ‘Unleash the Power Within’ event a few months ago in San Jose, Californ-iiii-aaaay.
Oh it UNLEASHED my POWER, alright.
I thought I was going to poop my pants in fear~ just THINKING ~ about the firewalk. And then it happened. Nope. NOT the pant pooping. The firewalking. Like I would confess to pooping my pants. Shut up, Mom
For the record, Tony Robbins is like WHOOOOA.
I’m so happy I didn’t poop my pants in front of him.
There are moments during this event, where your energy level with him is beyond belief. If you could reach the roof top, you could seriously knock it off ! Blow it to oblivion !!!!!
There are also moments when it is peaceful, and you find yourself resting on the floor. It is the kind of rest where you could curl up and lose yourself. You completely forget that you are on a rock hard concrete floor. Even so, it is that kind of float on the clouds kind of relaxation.
Anything that is wrong in your world, suddenly feels right.
You feel an awakening. I know. That sounds corny. It is truly an epic awakening though.
It’s a feeling that is so deep inside you….
~ Like fluffing a big feather duvet ~
~ Giving it a huge shake down ~
~ Letting the feathers land where they may ~
Just knowing that they will land where they are meant to land.
What a beautiful feeling.
That is when you KNOW, with absolute certainty, that you can do
* And you can handle anything else that comes your way *
Originally, I had thought to myself …. Self (because that is what I say to myself) :
” You are NOT going to walk on fire. You are a nit wit for even THINKING about it. Remember child birth ? IT HURT. Remember how you forgot that having a baby was like passing a watermelon through a garden hose? Remember how you were stupid enough to go through childbirth FOUR times?! Well, let me remind you sista….walking on fire….goes against all the common sense you have ever learned & earned in your lifetime. Think twice. Think four times. Think long and hard, cause this is gonna hurt hurt hurt …duffass. ”
Funny enough, the event program/guidelines stated :
This program contains COARSE LANGUAGE.
That actually made me feel better. I planned on using some coarse language too.
The REALITY of what happened :
After spending 10 hours in a room with Tony Robbins….I walked on fire !!!!!!!
Not a little itty bitty little fake fire.
Not Betty Crocker easy bake oven light bulb fire.
Hot ass coals fire. Coals burning to the tune of 1200-2000 degrees fire. Now that is what a good Canadian calls a good FIRE. Smokin’ hot !!
Do you freaking believe it? It was EPIC (minus the pre-fire pant pooping). I lie about the pant pooping. We spent 10 hours preparing ourselves on how to be IN STATE for the fire walk. Thank goodness for learning how to be in STATE because I hadn’t packed an extra pair of pants.
I would have been S.O.L.
Pardon the pun.
P.S. News reports from around the world stated that 21 people had 2nd and 3rd degree burns on their feet. They lied. They later retracted that statement. Btw’s, there were 6000 people at the seminar.
WE DID IT. WE WALKED ON FIRE WITH MASSIVE SUCCESS.
It was like a rock concert. On the outside and on the inside of our bodies.
As I think back to that day, I still can’t believe I walked that freakin’ fire like a dainty lady. It may have been my first DAINTY moment in my entire lifetime. It was definitely my first dainty moment in my entire lifetime.
* Tip toe through the daisies *
P.S. Anthony Robbins is seriously one hawt guy. Just sayin’. He has beautiful energy. A gorgeous smile. An incredible way with words. Magnetism beyond belief. The biggest hands that I have ever seen.
He has the kindest heart. The most GIVING soul. He reaches out to others to make a positive difference in their lives. Big time.
He is larger-than-life.
The real deal.
~ A FORCE FOR GOOD ~
If don’t believe me, ask Oprah.
I luuuurve Oprah. If she jumped off of a bridge, I would too. Just sayin’.
The past does not equal the future, unless you live there~Tony Robbins
If I am going to bust my butt blogging for all of you lovelies (Yes, I bust it in my pyjamas but let’s just keep quiet about that)
I need payback for my pyjama bustin’.
You can pay me back with Facebook LOVE.
I know. I’m easy, but not cheap
Shhhhh. Let’s keep quiet about that one too.
How can YOU help?
Go LIKE my facebook page and watch for daily updates from the seminar. Hit that LIKE LIKE LIKE button and tell your mother and dog to do it too. I need some friends. Even if they are in my imaginary virtual Facebook world.
You can find me on twitter @lynneknowlton using the hashtag #UPWOrlando because that hashtag makes normal sense. I would rather use the hashtag #OhMyGoodnessTony,YouAreOneSmokingHawtTamale but that may not be putting my best foot forward.
If you are attending Unleash the Power Within in Orlando, here is some pre-game advice.
You’re welcome for saving you from black eyes and frozen tootsies :
1. Women : wear a ‘suit of armour‘ sports bra. This event is high energy, with lots of jumping and dancing and awesome music. I almost gave myself two black eyes at the last seminar. I am leaving the
ugly worn out everyday bra sexy bra at home. This time, I’m sporting a lock-down-the-hush-puppies-bra*
*Unless Tony wanted to see my bra. Then all bets are off. I joke. Not really.
2. It can be chilly in the room (even though you will be in ORLANDO with 6,000 people in the room). Wear a parka. OK, at least bring some layers of warmth. Dare to look like an eskimo. No worries, you will match all the other Canadians in attendance. Polar bears roam freely here in Canada. I joke. A moose walked through our local town. One of those statements is true. I will give you three guesses, and the first two guesses don’t count.
3. Bring lots of water to drink. Copious quantities of water. Your body will love you for it. Your bladder will not.
4. Get ready for some epic shit. Epic shit will happen. I promise. Pinkie swear it. Promise.
5. Bring healthy snacks to munch on. Pretend you are going to graze. All day long. That is what you will need to do. You won’t want to leave the room.
I hope to take some beautiful photos of him this week. As long as I don’t look too much like a dork with my camera. Wish me luck. I will need the ….I don’t want to look like a dork…. LUCK.
There is always room in your life for
and imagining the impossible.
