My amazing journey with Tony Robbins that most people don't know about

It is 7:53am Friday morning, September 7, 2007 ... I'm sitting at my desk with a cup of tea and just getting mentally ready for a new day.

Warren, our newest team member, said to me yesterday "I am amazed how quickly you manifest things. You discuss an idea one day and the next day people are calling you with exactly what you need!" This has happened over and over again recently.

Sometimes I forget how amazing the Law of Attraction is and how quickly it does work. It got me thinking about where my journey began. Here is some of my story that few people know:

Many people know that Bob Proctor had a big influence in my life and that I have been studying his Born Rich program now for over a decade - so much so that I teach the You Were Born Rich workshop. And because of that I introduced the producer of The Secret, Rhonda Byrne, to Bob Proctor when The Secret was produced in 2005. What most people don’t know is the other mentors that helped me along this journey - one person who had the biggest impact on my life was Tony Robbins.

In 1995 I had no money, massive debt, no job, no education or qualification, behind in rent and driving an unregistered car. I went to a Bob Proctor seminar and I really struggled with the fact that it was ok to be rich!! The Facilitator, Andres Johanssen, suggested I read two books,
Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder and Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins. Apparently he saw something in me I didn’t see myself.

I read "Awaken The Giant Within" and immediately decided to get to his seminar ... I didn't care how much it cost or where in the world it was, I just knew I had to be there and I would find a way.

I then found out that Tony was coming to Australia in 3 months time!! I had to be there … I didn't know how, but I had to be there. Isn't it interesting that when you make something an absolute MUST, you achieve it.

I had already learnt that your life in five years time will be exactly the same as it is today except for the people you meet, the books you read and the tapes (CD's) you listen to. So I had to meet Tony Robbins.

The cheapest ticket to attend
Tony Robbins UPW (Unleash the Power Within event) was $895 ... I didn't have $89!! I was also living in Toowoomba, Queensland at the time ... that is about 9 hours drive away from where Tony was running his event in Sydney or a $600 plane ticket (the price of a plane fare at that time).

I boldly approached some friends - a wonderful older couple, Cliff & Shirley Robinson, they lent me their nearly new car, and then three friends decided to make the journey with me ... they would pay for the fuel. I just have to find $895 for the ticket and somewhere to sleep.

I approached a company to do some sales work. Just before UPW I sold enough products to earn $1,100 in commission - the day before we had to leave I received my commission money. I literally arrived at UPW registration in Sydney with the money in my hand to pay for my ticket. We found a really cheap hotel accommodation near Randwick - $29/night ...
shared bathroom and shared cockroaches!

You might be asking what happens at a Tony Robbins UPW 4-day event! I have had hundreds of people ask me that same question over the years and my answer is still the same:

"I can't really explain it all … just be there, it will change your life"

Ok, how has it changed mine?

Here are just a fewof things that come to mind:

  1. Prior to attending I earned a taxable income of just under $5,000 for the whole 12 months; I came back home and I earned $10,000 in one month!!!! That’s a 2,400% increase in income!
  2. I started working for a company that gave me a stable income and good lifestyle for the next 3 years.
  3. A Robbins Consultant gave me the kick up the backside that caused me to start up Trading Edge ... our stock market education company that has turned over many millions and is now know around the world.
  4. Within 5 years of attending UPW our new business turned over $1,000,000 in a year.

There are many, many more things I could put on the list ... you see, I got such an amazing result after I attended the first time I decided to go back 18 months later. Then we doubled our income again so I went back the third time ... I have attended UPW seven times ... this year will be my eighth!

I figure this ... If Tony Robbins is worth $250 million plus and I’m not, then he can still teach me stuff.

I hope this inspires you to do whatever you can, drop everything else in your life and get there ... it will make a massive difference.

I have arranged with Tony's company here in Australia something extra special.

We have sent hundreds of people along to listen to Tony over the past 12 years so I decided to get some incredible tickets at a ridiculous price.

Two tickets to Tony Robbins UPW is now $2,990.00. I have secured 30 tickets only at $747.50/person* (You SAVE $1,495 for two tickets - that’s less than what I paid in 1995!!) as a special thank you for any of our clients who would like to attend. I promise you ...

... Life will NEVER be the same again!
