Unleash the Power Within Review
If you need clarity about Tony Robbins’ UPW event, please read my Unleash the Power Within Review. After attending this life-changing event, your LIFE will NEVER be the SAME!
Who is Tony Robbins?
Tony Robbins is a best-selling author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and #1 Life and Business Strategist.
As a recognized authority on the psychology of leadership and negotiations, he has served as an advisor to leaders around the world for approximately 40 years.
Casino magnate Steve Wynn and Salesforce.com founder Marc Benioff are among those grateful for his coaching as well as 42nd U.S. President Bill Clinton.
His work has touched the lives of top entertainers and athletes such as Serena Williams, Andre Agassi, Donna Karan, Oprah Winfrey, Hugh Jackman, Anthony Hopkins, Aerosmith, Green Day, Usher and Pitbull.
He has empowered more than 50 million people from 100 countries through his audio, video and life training programs, and more than 4 million people have attended his live seminars.
As a founder, co-founder, and investor, Tony has his hands in 31 businesses.
Tony is the chairman of a holding company comprised of twelve privately held businesses with combined sales exceeding $5 billion a year.
He has been honored by Accenture as one of the “Top 50 Business Intellectuals in the World”, by Harvard Business Press as one of the “Top 200 Business Gurus”, and by American Express as one of the “Top Six Business Leaders in the World” to coach its entrepreneurial clients.
Fortune’s cover article named him the “CEO Whisperer,” and he was named in the top 50 of Worth Magazine’s 100 most powerful people in global finance.
He is donating 100% of the profits from his book “UNSHAKEABLE”, to Feeding America. 1 book purchased contributes 50 meals to those in need. Through his partnership with Feeding America, he has provided over 325 million meals and the campaign’s commitment is to ultimately provide 1 billion meals by 2025.
He has also initiated programs in more than 1,500 schools, 700 prisons, and 50,000 service organizations and shelters. He also provides fresh water to 250,000 people a day in India in order to fight the number one killer of children in that country-waterborne disease.
I have enormous respect for this guy and I cannot even describe the positive change he has created in my mind just by simply watching his videos and reading his books. So, Unleash the Power Within in London 2018 was the next logical step for me.
What is Unleash the Power Within?
Unleash the Power Within is a 4-day live event with Tony Robbins designed to help you unleash the power inside you that can help you break through any limit and create the quality of life you desire.
If you come to an event with an open mind, you will have an opportunity to learn life and business strategies, raise your energy, make new friends, learn important things about yourself, change your limiting beliefs, experience firewalk and spend a great time with like-minded people.
In this life-changing 50+ hours event, you will learn how to exceed your own limitations to achieve your goals and take control of your life.
“There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream, or desire a reality.”
Day 1 – Turn Fear into Power
On the first day of the event, we came early to the venue. We were queuing with 13000 people from 65 counties. The energy was so good from the beginning. We were cheering, laughing and having fun with other participants in the queue while the crew was greeting and high fiving us.
The music was playing from the early morning, and everybody was dancing and jumping while waiting for Tony.
Tony came around 12 pm and stayed on stage until 11 pm without having a break. He had so much energy and such a huge impact on people that by the end of the first day everybody was jumping and yelling “YES!” while preparing and waiting for the firewalk experience.
The first day was all about fear and how to turn it into power.
Tony says that those who create an extraordinary life and achieve their highest vision share one fundamental power: the capacity to turn their fears and limitations into positive focused action.
What would you do if fear was no longer a factor in your life?
According to Tony Robbins, there are 3 important questions that we must answer to understand the nature of human beings and in turn, be able to predict how and why we do what we do.
1. What stops us from moving forward, taking action and being our best?
Tony says that FEAR can destroy our psychology and immobilize us from taking action. Fear is hard-wired into every human being. The secret is learning how to use fear instead of letting fear use us.
2. What controls and determines the quality of our lives?
What controls our lives are the meanings we associate with the things in our lives, which are shaped by our own personal psychology and our beliefs and values that we’ve created.
For example, two people may experience the same event, where one person may look at it as a problem and someone else may look at it as a challenge, one may see it as a disaster and the other may see it as an opportunity to learn something and grow even stronger from it.
The perceptual difference not only affects the quality of each person’s life but what action they will take next.
Once meaning is established, each individual will have a pattern of EMOTIONS that they associate to this meaning. All meanings are driven by our individual patterns of emotions which are driven by three forces:
- a pattern of physiology (breath, posture, movement),
- a pattern of focus (what you focus on, you will feel) and
- a pattern of language/meaning (your description of experience can change its meaning).
3. Why we do what we do?
There are 6 HUMAN NEEDS that drive us forward in a quest to experience a life of meaning – certainty, uncertainty/variety, significance, connection/love, growth, and contribution. Our will to satisfy these needs is automatic, we don’t need to be conscious of them.
There is always a way to fulfill a need – positive, negative or neutral – the skill lies in finding a sustainable way to fulfill it in a way that gives you more pleasure than pain.
The Firewalk Experience
On this day you will discover how to break the fear that is holding you back and will have an opportunity to walk barefoot across hot coals between 1,200 and 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you start doing what you thought was impossible, it would be easier to conquer the other fires of your life.
The Firewalk is the metaphor for moving beyond our challenges and fears. It is a symbol of all that is possible when you take your first steps towards freer and more satisfying future. It is not about the fire, but about what it takes to get through it.
The Firewalk is about getting people to push through their limitations and fears to become a better version of themselves. It is not about positive thinking, it’s about finding the tools inside of you to take your life to the next level — so that you can create the life that you want and deserve.
What holds people back from improving the quality of their lives? What prevents them from taking actions that are necessary to transform their lives? It’s a fear!
Firewalk is not some magical mind-over-matter process. As Tony says – “Anyone can walk on fire! Anyone can, but few people do! What people can do is amazing; what they will do is too often disappointing.”
Is Firewalk dangerous?
It is not completely without risks, but it is done in a highly controlled environment with trained fire professionals. It requires hours of mental training prior to the process to be able to follow the rules.
Less than 1% participant experience side effects such as hot spots or blisters from the Firewalk.
To do it successfully, it’s crucial to follow the guidance.
You must be in a peak “state” – possess a deep sense of certainty and self-assuredness. The energetic and supportive group environment helps you get into the peak “state.”
You must walk straight, at a normal pace, and fix your gaze forward and slightly up.
You must focus on the word “YES” or “cool moss.”
You must have absolute certainty that you can and will succeed.
I have successfully completed my firewalk and what is even better, I really enjoyed the process.
You are not required to do the Firewalk. Participation is 100% voluntary. If you choose not to do the Firewalk, you can stay at the venue and participate by encouraging others as they do so.
Day 2 – Turn Dreams into Reality
The second day was led by coach Joseph McClendon III. Tony has been speaking for many years, and his vocal cords are paper thin now, so his doctor mandates not to speak that long.
Joseph McClendon currently serves as a senior head trainer and instructor of Tony Robbins’ Mastery University. He is the founder of Succeleration Research Group, a leading coaching organization that serves political, entertainment and business communities. Joseph has also taught courses in human re-engineering, leadership, advanced communication and human influence at the University of California, Los Angeles.
On your second day, you will discover the ultimate success formula.
In order to turn your dreams into reality, you need clarity. Clarity is power, and you’ll acquire it here, no matter where you’re starting from. You’ll get a clear understanding of what it is you truly want in your life, make fundamental decisions, build a plan and create strategies for sustained momentum.
You will develop a clear target of what you want and why—in your career, relationships, your body and ﬁnances and will discover the 3 steps to lasting change.
You will have the opportunity to learn Tony’s personal process for getting from where you are to where you want to be, plus the universal principles for creating and sustaining wealth.
Day 3 – Transformation day
Now that you’ve conquered your fears, clariﬁed what you want and made a plan on how to get there, the only thing that’s holding you back is your inner conﬂicts (limiting beliefs) that prevent you from taking consistent action.
On this day, Tony will help you to uncover beliefs that are limiting your life.
You will experience a change in your life by replacing limiting beliefs with empowering beliefs that will drive you to get the results you want in any area of your life.
You will also learn a step-by-step process for modeling the best strategies to consistently achieve any result you desire.
Day 4 – The Power of Pure Energy
Tony says that ENERGY is the most important factor in creating an extraordinary quality of life. If you’re going to take your life to the next level, it’s vital to make a commitment to living a more energized and healthy life.
On this day you will learn how to dramatically increase your energy and strengthen your immune system. You will learn 12 master principles of vital life.
Many of the concepts may be new or even contrary to the conventional wisdom that you may have been taught in the past. The goal of the pure energy program is to empower you to take charge of your health and to take responsibility for the choices you make.
You will have an opportunity to take the 10-day challenge and put into action what you’ve learned and to experience the vibrant energy, health, and vitality you deserve.
Is UPW Overpriced?
In my opinion, you get what you pay for.
Things are not generally cheap or expensive, the same thing could be expensive for somebody and cheap for somebody else.
There are people who spend all their money on designer’s clothes, jewelry, or different material things. There are others who like to spend their money on traveling. There are also people who spend all their money on education.
Somebody who loves wearing designers’ clothes would normally spend a fortune on clothes while somebody else wouldn’t see much sense in that. The same story is with personal development events – people like me, who love this kind of event, would spend their money without hesitating while others who are not interested in self-improvement, wouldn’t.
So, it’s not about the price, it’s about your preferences.
You are either growing or dying – there is no third alternative. People are not spiritually satisfied unless their capacities are expanding. When you’re in a comfort zone, you’re not driven and you’re not growing, and when you’re not growing, you’re dying.
I consider UPW as an investment in my self-growth and as such it is not overpriced, because experience, understanding, and knowledge that I gained are forever mine.
If you really want to improve your life and you commit to CANI (constant and never-ending improvement), but you don’t have the money now, decide you’re going to an event and then you will find money – as I did!
You need to decide what you want and why you want it – the how will then reveal to you.
Just as Tony says – when you turn should into a must, it will happen!
