Review: Date With Destiny West Palm Beach - Tony Robbins (6th - 11th Dec 2018)

Date With Destiny West Palm Beach

I was not a newbie at Tony Robbins events. I had previously attended Unleash The Power Within in London (Apr 2018), and watched I'm Not Your Guru, I sort of knew what to expect. Having attended previous events, I was also aware of the 6 basic human needs - Certainty, Uncertainty, Significance, Love/Connection, Growth, Contribution. You can change your state whenever you want to, and change the way you act. Whatever you focus on, energy flows

I decided to attend this event as this is Tony's flagship program, and I've heard good things about it from multiple trusted sources. Earlier last year, I joined Tony's Platinum Partnership Program (85k USD for all events and ~10k more for each Plat event), so this event was included. Tickets typically go for 4k-10k depending on the seat, and time of purchase. It is also cheaper if you buy through a platinum partner or if you order as a group at events such as UPW.

Why did I need to attend this:

Review: Engage From Your Stage- Destiny Training by Scott deMoulin

Engage From Your Stage- Destiny Training by Scott deMoulin

Before attending the event I had already read Dale Carnegie's The Art of Public Speaking; hence I was aware of how important being good at public speaking was, and the difference it can make for your career if you were a good speaker vs an average speaker. 

I also had two friends who have previously attended the event and they have briefed me on "the anatomy of a speech" section as well as the exercises that were going to be done. 

"Engage From Your Stage is a truly transformational experience with only 6 participants where you will erase limitation and become more comfortable being uncomfortable. You'll rehearse until you embody the proven verbal and physical communication skills and discover the importance of syntax and how to better engage and persuade your listeners with integrity, while you move your audience towards your desired call to action with your message."Source

Review: Launch by Jeff Walker

Summary: "With his Product Launch Formula, Jeff Walker has changed the way we sell. In his book Launch, he outlines his tried-and-tested strategy for selling products online and building a business that’s almost guaranteed to bring success. Walker shows you how he’s succeeded by outlining a step-by-step plan for launching your product – even before you know exactly what it is." Source


This is actually a popular model and a lot of people have used this  and it worked really well in the past. It's a one time launch thing where you hype it up before the launch. My plan was to combine this with a 14 or 21 day challenge and TPB (from Brendon's online course creation)  

Since I'm planning on launching an online course, and I want to try out this Launch formula. Since lots of people have used it in the past and it worked for them, my hypothesis is that it could still be a good model in Asia.


It's important for me to test out various...

Review: Experts Academy Live - Brendon Burchard (25th-28th Oct 2018)

Experts Academy Live Santa Clara

I had no idea what I was getting into when I signed up for this. I had previously done a few of Brendon Burchard's online courses and loved them, and since this event fitted into my calendar perfectly (another event ended 1 day earlier in Las Vegas and I could fly back from SF after attending this event in Santa Clara), I decided to go for it.

Mainly, I wanted to see Brendon Burchard live; I did not know what I did not know. 

What is Experts Academy Live: " Brendon Burchard and the world’s most experienced influencers as they share their business models, audience growth strategies, social media campaigns, and modern monetization strategies for book deals, online sales, sponsorships, brand deals, documentaries, appearances, and partnerships." source


Wow. I never realised how many coaches there were. The first day was spent understanding how these 'Experts' business work, and why you can do a lot of good in the world by being...

Review: Willpower Doesn't Work by Benjamin P. Hardy

Summary of book: "How to make the biggest decisions of your life--and why those decisions must be made in specific settings How to create a daily "sacred" environment to live your life with intention, and not get sucked into the cultural addictions How to invest big in yourself to upgrade your environment and mindset How to put "forcing functions" in your life--so your default behaviours are precisely what you want them to be How to quickly put yourself in proximity to the most successful people in the world--and how to adapt their knowledge and skills to yourself even quicker How to create an environment where endless creativity and boundless productivity is the norm " Source


Before reading this book I was already aware of a few things: 1. relying only on willpower will never work, because when we're tired or aren't feeling at our best it's easy to give up on things we set out to do 2. there is the internal and external component to living a disciplined life 3. it's...

Review: Date With Destiny - Tony Robbins (6th - 11th Dec 2018)

DWD West Palm Beach

This was not my first TR event; I had previously attended Unleash The Power Within in London (Apr 2018), and watched I'm Not Your Guru. As such I was aware of the "6 basic human needs": 1.Certainty, 2.Uncertainty, 3. Significance, 4.Love/Connection, 5.Growth, 6.Contribution. I also learnt that you can change your state whenever you want to and the way you act; whatever you focus on, energy flows in that direction .

I decided to attend DWD as it is Tony's flagship program and I've heard good things from multiple trusted sources.

I joined Tony's Platinum Partnership Program ($85k USD for all events + approx $10kUSD more for each Platinum event), so DWD was included. Tickets usually cost around $4-10k USD depending on the type of seat and timing you choose to purchase. It is cheaper if you buy through a platinum partner or as a group to enjoy discounts at events such as UPW.

I went into DWD wanting to understand myself better:

300k USD down the drain (to others), 300k USD invested in myself (to me)

Hi, I'm Wayne, and I'm a learning junkie.

Counting back the last 10 years, I've spent  more than $300k USD investing in my own self-improvement, and here's the story of how I got started.

Bowling

My first encounter with coaching was when I started Bowling. During my peak year I was training 5x/week for the National Under-23 team, 3x/week with my school, 1x/week with my country club, and 1x/week 1-on-1.

I started 1-on-1 coaching when I wanted to break into the national youth team, and thankfully my parents understood how important it was to me. They were struggling with their business but yet they sacrificed their own lifestyle so that I could afford Bowling equipment and coaching. For this and many other reasons, I'm eternally grateful. 

The most memorable story of how they came to realise how important this was to me was when I went home with my exam results. I was about 14 or 15 years old. I did not do well on the exams and my Mum said she was going to make me quit...
