Personal Empowerment

Posted February 13, 2007 by Acupuncture & Massage College & filed under Holistic Medicine


Tony Robbins, peak performance coach and motivational speaker/writer, challenges individuals to go beyond self-conceived limitations and reach their highest potential in fields from the arts to business, athletics to politics, and education. His firewalk seminars (Unleash the Power Within) demonstrate the ability to take action (personal power) as the main quality to achieve success.

Participants walk on hot coals and apply this same active principle to empower themselves to persevere in other aspects of life/tasks that previously would have been mistakenly considered impossible. Robbins teaches techniques for self-mastery and determination (interrupting limiting patterns by doing something unexpected, conditioning behavior through visualization, focusing on aspects of experience that create a positive psychology, goal-setting, imagining end results to generate power to create a compelling future).

Robbins’s mastery of self focuses on guiding individuals to define their path while removing internal obstacles that prevent being able to fulfill that path on an ongoing basis. Techniques focus on transformation, freedom to expand and progress as opposed to reinforcing the psychology of limitation. “Nothing has any power over me other than that which I give it through conscious thoughts, writes Robbins. “The past does not equal the future unless you live there. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully.”

Movement requires breaking patterns, growth requires raising standards and meeting new challenges. “All personal breakthroughs begin with a change in beliefs,” Robbins says. “If you develop the absolute sense of certainty that powerful beliefs provide, then you can get yourself to accomplish virtually anything.” Quality of life is determined by the meaning or interpretation assigned to things/events. “It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers (or empowers) them.”
