I am a big fan of Anthony Robbins, who is probably number one life and business coach. Recently I have heard some amazing stories from my friends about how Anthony’s live events transformed their lives and so I pondered: “If my friends say positive things about the event and if Oprah Winfrey and Serena Williams think that this is a life-changing event – why wouldn’t I try to attend it?”.
I went to his website and saw that the next event is held in Chicago. The idea to go there was a little bit crazy but the more I thought about NOT going there (excuses!) the more I knew I MUST go.
A lot of people who know very little (or nothing) about Anthony’s work told me that this must be a brainwashing event. In general, I’ve always felt a lot of resistance toward any kind of self improvement techniques here in Slovenia. Are we really super-human beings who are never wrong? Do we really not need to read books, listen to advice or sometimes even get some help?
Let’s take a look at one of Anthony’s teachings about relationship:
Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.
Imagine how improved our lives would be if more people were willing to understand such a simple lesson.
Me, my parents and the whole country invested A LOT of time and money in MY formal education but I was never really impressed by the results. Why? Because that is what everybody does. If I want to stand out and have different results I have to take different actions. Whenever I was strong enough to do things differently and apply my own rules I was astonished about the results. It was never easy but always fun and exciting, many times even inspiring! I am convinced that money spent on the seminar will return back to me somehow. I also know that the time I have right now will never come back. I have to do it and I have to do it NOW.
I will stay in Chicago for 14 days and here is my bucket list of the things I will do/try there:
- Attend the Unleash the Power within seminar
- Travel alone
- Try couch-surfing
- Go into Sensory deprivation tank
- Meet new people
- Try group meditation
- Rent a bike
- Work in coworking office in Chicago
- Listen to live music
- Visit one startup company
I’ve visited many crazy countries with my girlfriend but traveling like this will be something completely new for me. It is true that I am a little anxious about the whole thing, but I am sure that it is going to be epic.
