Walk on fire! What the hell? Why would anyone want to do that?
I had never had the desire to walk on fire. In fact, with all my wisdom, I thought I didn’t need to do anything like that. I have nothing to prove. I’m me. Just wanting to be more alive!
Unleash The Power Within is a crazy TONY ROBBINS event where over 6,000 people gather for a weekend that will literally rock your world. There was so much that happened in the weekend, but the one thing that I wanted to share with you was about this idea of walking on fire.
As little kids, we are taught that if we touch the hot stove, we will burn our hands. This can indeed be true. However, it also is entirely true that if you are in a peak state of mind, that you can accomplish anything you want. That includes walking on fire without getting burned. Pretty incredible isn’t it?
Fire Walkers in training begins on Day 1! TONY ROBBINS comes out on stage and the entire place erupts with cheers! It is absolutely electric in the air. The energy is high, and people are pumped to be pumped up. Tony does what Tony does…he inspires you to believe in yourself. He inspires you to let go of that belief that you may have previously held so and now no longer serves you.
Walking on fire isn’t about the fire at all. The fire, from my perspective, is a metaphor for all those things in your life that you thought were impossible. That you thought you couldn’t do. That you told yourself that you shouldn’t even consider. Every time you did that you diminished a little bit of your power.
In The Wizard of Oz, Glenda tells Dorothy she had the power all along. When you walk on fire, you KNOW you have the power. You know more intensely WHO you are, WHAT you are. And, more importantly, you know HOW you serve in this world.
I am not telling you to go walk on fire. I’m telling you my story so you know you don’t have to walk on fire to have an experience of transformation. You can get it from an AHA MOMENT, reading, from sharing with a friend, and from getting out of your comfort zone.
Look my friends, with all the love in my heart, I will share this with you…. Transformation Occurs When You Are Experiencing Life. Transformation happens you are LIVING your heart’s desire. Transformation happens OUTSIDE your comfort zone.
You can transform your LIFE, the ORGANIZATIONS you work within by changing your approach and deep desire to do something greater than yourself.
I am a fire-walker! Most importantly, walking on fire taught me a lesson I learned many years ago from a wise woman (my mother), the only limits we have are the ones we place on ourselves.
If you can lift one limitation you know you have today, you are one step closer to BEING FREE, making a new CHOICE and certainly more In Sync.
