Earlier this Year:
Several Mt. Diablo Members Became FIRE-WALKERS!

In partnership with Anthony Robbing International, 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!
