Have you ever been to one of those seminars where you learn how to walk on fire? Or on glass or whatever they make you do you would never try at home? During those seminars they tell you, you can do anything you want. You don’t have to live the life you live now if you don’t want it. You just have to step out of your comfort zone. Euh, just and step out and comfort zone… words that don’t match according to me. During a whole day these masters of speech confront you with yourself and what they call “bad habits” that you can change if you want a better life. So basically they tell you you’re not good enough and you should change? Not sure that’s the right way.
Although long time ago I did believe in these seminars! After this one-day-seminar I thought I could become anything I ever wanted but was afraid to do.
It must have been some 12 years ago, I was just climbing out of a burn-out and thought this would make me feel better, walking on fire, yep, that’s what I’m going to do, stepping out of my comfort zone and “do it” ! Be the change! Achieve something, not letting my life pas me by without taking the lead!
Can you feel the energy already?
So I asked a good friend to join me to one of these “fire walk” events and I did it! I really did! I was so proud, I walked on fire! Can you imagine! Now I can do whatever I want because I dared to walk on fire!
I went back to work, gave my resignation and started my dream! Studying again, study PNL, PNL master, PNL Coach, PNL anything to reach my goal! Boy was I happy! I didn’t have any job, had two kids to feed on my own, a mortgage to pay, but I was doing what I wanted to do, I was working on my future!
At least that’s what I thought! The thing is, they never told me it was going to be that hard! They said: “Take the risk, what do you have to lose?” Everything will work out fine, as long as you believe in it. But actually you can not only “believe” in it, you have to DO something. You have to work hard, you have to work for it every day, you can’t just rely on luck because the stars said so, because one of the speaking masters said so. They all promise you a better life, a better job, a better anything and at the end of the day it’s not the promises that matter, it’s what you DO.
To keep a long story short. Years went by, I went back to a “normal” job and as I grew older or let’s say more mature, I understood one thing. You can do anything in life is actually no bullshit as long as you DO something for it. So I continued studying and with more envy and perseverance than ever. I studied while I was still working, I actually had 3 jobs. Now I was doing something! I got to know myself better through the Insights Discovery method, I learned a lot about others too and I made it! Like they say, it’s been blood, sweat and tears, it’s been a long journey but I DID IT!
So, if you ever wonder if you should “walk on fire” and choose to be whomever you want to, than DO IT, no bullshit, DO IT! And after you have burned your feet, make yourself even better by knowing yourself better. And that’s just why we are here! We are here to help you grow into the better version of yourself; we know this, because we went through it ourselves.
