Many of those who know me also know that I regularly attend Tony Robbins events. Why? Motivation, inspiration, energy, this list goes on, and on. I recently shared my experiences with Tina Dettman-Bielefeldt (co-owner of DB Commercial Real Estate in Green Bay and past district director for SCORE, Wisconsin), who wrote and article for the Press Gazette.
Here is an expert from the article (the full version can be read on the Green Bay Press Gazette website).
Green Bay SCORE Mentor Bob Jahnke, and his son, Adam, can say that they have walked on coals and found it to be an exhilarating experience.
Jahnke, owner of Top Hat Marketing in De Pere, is an advocate of Tony Robbins, one of America’s leading motivational speakers. When news broke in late June that dozens of attendees at a Robbins’ seminar in Dallas were treated for burn injuries to their feet, Jahnke felt that the story overstated the potential for injury.
Having served on the crew at the end of the burning coals line, Jahnke said that injuries are rare.
“The first time you go through the coals, you’re kind of nervous,” he said. “But, Robbins says to look up and don’t look at the coals. When you get to the end of the line, they would tell you to stop, rinse off your feet, and celebrate. I’d say that most of the time, and it’s probably less than 1 percent of the people, you might get a small blister because you didn’t wipe off your feet.”
Jahnke has walked across the coals four times, and his son, twice. Both say that it is empowering and gives a person the confidence that if they can do that, they can accomplish anything.
That is the message of the seminars, books and videos. They are focused on helping businessmen and regular people evaluate what they really want in their lives, what prevents them from having it, and how to make changes.
Not only do I love to share my ideas on marketing and how to help you grow your business, but I would also be happy to share my experiences from seminars and walking on coals!
