The power of your peer group

I went to Tony Robbins with a crew of 50 incredible, charismatic, powerful, silly humans that were ready to level up.  When I first heard about UPW, I was interested but didn't know if it would be worth the time or money. Once I found out how many of my awesome friends were going, I was sold. They were the single biggest factor affecting my choice to go, and I'm so grateful for their influence because it was exactly what I needed.

I knew this group was something special, but was totally blown away by the collective energy and support that I experienced throughout the event. Even today we have an active chat where we ask for advice, send love, and keep each other in peak state.

My personal experience with this rad group of people coupled with Tony's teachings on the power of your peer group made a lasting impact in my life. Tony taught that the secret to wealth and power is to be a team player because we'll do more for others than we'll ever do for ourselves. He urged us to join a team of people who make you have to  grow because you care so much about them.  To find a team that will challenge you, not just support you.

People's lives are a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group. 
-Tony Robbins

It was such a joy to be with a powerful group of people unashamed to live life on their terms. The level at which all of these people are playing is high, and it encourages me to play full out, heart open, in the fullest expression of myself.

Our group's energy (or maybe it was the crazy outfits) garnered us a lot of attention. So much, in fact, that an admiring husband and wife passed us this beautiful note.

As a result of my Tony Robbins experience I have even more gratitude for my community and the way we inspire and uplift each other. I'm taking steps to be more intentional about what I do with my time and who I spend it with. For example, this past weekend a group of us volunteered with KEEN - Kids Enjoy Exercise Now - a group dedicated to bringing sports and play to children with disabilities. It was a beautiful experience that filled my love cup to the brim and made me even more grateful for the people in my life.
