As an entrepreneur seeing on stage Tony Robbins was in my bucket list for years. Today I can say I’ve done it. I saw Tony Robbins at the National Achievers 2015 Congress in Sydney. I had a mixed feelings; excitement and a little apprehension. I’m born in France and live in Australia for almost 15 years. My adoptive family is from the Caribbean’s and I lived in few countries, I believe I can say I have a flexible and open mind with other cultures, but I am not a big fan of these big American gatherings with cheerful crowds who listen their speakers as they expecting they will change their lives – forever. It’s a bit too ‘guru/sect’ for me.
All day, I listened many interesting American speakers. I have to say those guys know how to sell big time! At the end of each presentations (trading, real estate, marketing or business online) they ALL without exception offer you the best deal to make money fast and quick (really?) – to do so you have to pay (of course) AU$AU1000.00 to $5000.00 their ‘unique and amazing’ deal pack including classes, emails, books and videos…. Hmmm… At this stage, I very perplexed and feel like I paid to listen sellers who want more money from me promising to be a millionaire in 18 months. May be it’s too “American’ for the French woman in me?
5 Things I Learned At Tony Robbins’ Sydney Event
Then, finally it’s Tony Robbins’s time to come on stage, and I have to say you could almost touch the energy’s anticipation in the room, even myself I started to feel hot (no joke I’m always cold). People were bananas when Tony arrived. He is exactly what I was expecting a giant american guy, with a strong and powerful voice – not to mention his perfect fake white teeth and really nice smile. Yes, true Tony Robbins looks amazing for 55 years.
Then he delivered within 5 minutes the secret of success: energy. Wow, now he got my attention, I’m here not for changing my life as I can do it myself but to understand what it is not quite right in me which it’s having an impact in my work and Women Love Tech. Can it be energy???
His talk was so powerful and pertinent I thought he was talking to me directly. Anyone can apply his advices no matter your personal issue: losing weight, bad personal life or in my case how to re-boost my energy levels for Women Love Tech and myself.
No doubt this guy knows his work. Tony Robbins is a coach and a public talker for over 35 years, he knows perfectly how to touch people’s mind and feeling without touching them physically (can I say that?). He is an amazing seller for the soul.
What I have learn in 4 hours
There is a strategy to energy and success without fulfilment is the master of failure.
To be a successful entrepreneur, you should:
1. Absolute obsessed focus
2. More you obsessed more your energy flows
3. Trade your expectations with your appreciations
The word Faith came back many times – even if it doesn’t work right now but you believe in your success – then you have more chances to success because motivation does matter. Somewhere, some how we all know that it’s right. If you run a business and work crazy hours but if deep inside, you doubt or have negative thoughts then it will translated into your day to day work consequently having a negative impact in your business.
3 Master Skills Of Life
1. The science of achievement
2. The art of fulfilment
3. The science of duplication
I’m not here to give you in details what Tony said in 4 hours – but its technique was really good. First he used repetitively the same words, sentences with the same persuasive vocabulary – only because we can’t concentrate and process 100% during a 4 hours presentation – make sense. As well Tony moves, all the time to a point I couldn’t take a proper picture without it being fuzzy – he has a massive energy and he feeds himself with the crowd’s energy too – I have to admit its something to witness, and I was truly impressed.
“Strategies behind the state of mind to get results – 80% psychology and 20% mind.” Tony Robbins
Also another technique he is using he asked the crowd many times to stand up, to clap, to scream (I lost my voice) to bounce, to dance, to jump…. I was like “oh my… here it goes… the American show!” It was a bit embarrassing, fun, crazy but what an experience to share with 3000 people – I could feel my own energy and the others and that’s, it’s priceless.
I left a bit before the end, first because I had enough of people jumping, screaming and hugging me for no reason. Seriously, I had to go back home to take Oscar(my French Bulldog) out and to feed him .
It’s only in the morning, I started to notice few changes, I always wake up with thousands things in my mind (I’m sure it’s the same for you). Money, emails, phone calls, articles to write, people to contact, etc….. and suddenly I was aware of my own negativity, it’s like a mind’s gymnastic, I tried to switch off the negative thoughts and to admire the beautiful sunset and to go for a long walk with Oscar instead by trying not to think of the thousands things I have to do in the day, but just enjoying this quiet moment, and guess what? It works. I took my time for the breakfast, shower and get ready. Surely working from home helps, but I usually do the same routine like I’m running a marathon! It didn’t stopped me to work and to be productive but I did it with a real pleasure with a clearer mind.
I know this article doesn’t have much to do with technology, but it has and will have a direct positive impact on my work and Women Love Tech.
If you’ve missed Tony Robbins congress or simply you are on a budget – don’t worry there are lost of cool and free videos on YouTube.
