Several Mt. Diablo Members Now FIREWALKERS

Our May 20th chapter meeting "Using Peak Performance to Have a Breakthrough Career Year" inspired several members to attend the
Tony Robbins "Unleash the Power Within" weekend event on
June 26-29. They report that it was unbelievably impactful. They
learned how to control their state
and then demonstrated that control
by walking across a bed of hot coals without suffering any burns
whatsoever. It was a living, experiential metaphor for how much more
we are capable of achieving in our lives and careers,
and a weekend
with the power to change everything!
