Oh how different you feel. What I didn’t include about Day 3, is how high my chest was after the “Dickens Process” and I know I wasn’t alone.
2MM. Life is nothing but 2mm.
And don’t be stupid, I don’t mean the candy.
It didn’t matter if I woke up on Sunday to protein and almond alarm, or gun shots outside of my room. You look in the mirror differently. You give a hard look at that person staring back and a smile comes across both of your faces. Like you see someone you haven’t seen in a long time that you had the biggest crush on. But you were just afraid to say something in case they let you down. Now, now you’re ready to put a ring on it!
Which is hard for me because I did get a divorce. The next marriage is my last marriage. And you know who says that more than any other human on this planet? People going on their 3rd marriage.
Nonetheless, you knew everyone did too. And today was a day full of that, and youtube videos of Tony. The star of the day was decompression. And every single product that the Robbins Research Institute had to sell. And that’s okay. I swear at one point there was a product pitch within a product pitch. Again, that’s okay. Not only is Tony a beyond phenomenal public speaker, the fella knows how to market himself. Remember those big tooth informercials interrupting my me time? Well, the guy knew market saturation. And his product was him. Well, we got a whole day of it, but we also got Wim Hof.
Walking around was almost hysterical how everyone was just smiling at each other. And if everyone wasn’t, you searched out another smile, locked eyes and just threw them one back. You ever buy a new car and notice afterward how many others have your car? Well, same thing but not so ego driven. If they had a bracelet and a smile, when you locked eyes you knew they knew something too, and it felt friggen fantastic!
True story: I’m on the phone with my mother and talking about when I was coming back. Told her the next day and when I get home after flying all day, I had to be up first thing in the morning to go to the dentist. My attitude and I literally said it aloud:
“Which is cool because my mouth needs to be cleaned, so I have that to look forward to.”
A very not ugly lady turned and looked at me like I was absolutely awesome.
At least that is what I thought. And I’m going to go with it.
Loaded up on some actually healthy food (Truth be told, they did have decent healthyish food to choose from at the SAP) And BIG PROPS to the those at the locations that would fill your water. Especially that one right next to the water fountain. Once loaded up, headed in.
Me to Security: “Good morning, thank you for everything you guys are doing”
I’m not, by any stretch trying to sound awesome, it just is coming out that way, I swear.
Met up with a hippieish kid and decided we were going to head to the same section I was last night. Which, it was pretty cool because you do see smiling faces of friends now. Sad that this was the end. But it was the beginning and a lot of us knew that.
Now, like I alluded to earlier, this day was nothing but sales. It started with a voluntary Business Mastery tease with Mike Melio. Mikey came out two nights prior to tell his difficult journey to prosperity and happiness. Afterward, they tried to sell you on one of Tony’s other live events. On this day, it was about an hour and a half of him giving you an outline and tease of the type of information you could get about your business at said event. It was good, one thing I learned about any entrepreneur or even an autonomous salesperson; be an expert of whatever you are selling. And use social media and your website to convey that message. Along with radio!!! I work for one of these mediums, can you figure out which one?
Joseph followed shortly after and for the remainder of the day we had brief moments of Joe, a guy from Egoscue (Tony Horton fans know what that is) to do some physical stretches. Joe even gave me the chance to slap a gorgeous 20 something on the ass.
And you’re goddamn right I did.
But the majority of the day was spent watching videos of Tony at another seminar talking about health. Did it come across as somewhat lame? Informative? Yes. Am I using any of the information that was provided? Yes. I stopped eating red meat of any kind and any poultry. Never much of a pork eater, though. Why?
To answer the original question; was it lame? It was Tony on a screen and the room was still pretty damn cold. I wasn’t complaining, but I wasn’t nearly as invested as I was the night before. Unless someone was on stage, and that someone was Wim Hof.
Instead of me going through who Wim Hof is, I will just pass this along for you to judge for yourself.
Wim had us doing a horse stance breathing exercise. All I know, is that I ran a 5k distance that morning and had been on my feet, a lot, for the previous 3 days. My legs didn’t get tired and we held that stance for a good amount of time. The next thing we learned was how to hold our breath to strengthen our immune system. I will just say that the third time through, I was at least at 2 minutes with my breath held. It was pretty crazy. And like that, he was gone.
There were products being pitched with lessons attached. Primarily about Alkalinity. If you are a part of Team Beachbody, a lot of what he was teaching was already known. Especially if you did the Ultimate Reset. Which I do at least once a year to clean my system. If interested (like how I did that?) feel free to look into it via:
By this point of the night, the crowd was 1/3rd the size. People were tired. But for those that stayed, well, Joseph sent us off perfectly.
Thank you, Joseph, for being the perfect Robin!
And yes, I made sure to find my Angel (had to) and say thank you for being placed on Earth for me to find at the exact right moment.
To cap off the event, Uber was simple! My God!
And what happened when I got back to my hotel? I had dinner with a phenomenal young lady.
Thank you, San Jose!
Thank you, to the entire crew!
Ah hell with it, thank you, Uber!
Now the question to ask is:
Did it work?
One more blog to go and I will have some kickass news too!
