I will start my story in Las Vegas and then go to a Virtual World created during Covid-19
I remembered a quote from Alvin Toffler, “Ask yourself what is the best thing that people are doing now in any city that you travel to.” Not only its history or fun places.
I was in Las Vegas at Bellagio, and while having a lot of fun, I remembered Toffler quote. So I took a sandwich and stopped enjoying the famous fountain that you may remember from the movie Ocean Eleven and stayed 200 meters away and looked at the people that were building a new resort.
I enjoyed seeing people working. I was doing similar things back home, and construction noise started to make me feel alive. Some people get angry about the noise, but it is about human work; if you hate that, you can get too much in life.
Those daily noises and dust become The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, a super lovely building, and every year Tony Robbins was there for five days with his seminar Business Mastery.
I was starting to apply again, the Alvin Toffler quote, “What is the best thing that is happening in this city?”
Every day, after some fun in Bellagio and Cosmopolitan, I started to climb to the Ballroom on floor 4 to see people learning to Transform Humanity.
At that time, I was on the wrong side of the door, but I saw this year at Virtual UPW a movie about what people were doing in that room, about a guy completely overwhelmed about his companies’ issues, struggling with growth and cashflow problems. We should not hate growth, even if life is pushing stuff at us while stretching.
Next to the Belmont Ballroom, there is a space with Tony’s colleagues from the sales department who told me 1000 stories about their products.
Do you usually run away from salespeople? Because I remembered a training where they proved to us that we are all salespeople. Don’t we have to sell our projects and ideas to our family and friends every day? Don’t you notice that even kids, dogs, and cats are sales machines?
So I spend hours talking with Robbins International salespeople who were free while all the people were inside the seminar room and I felt good, They were all mine to explain to me about all those lovely shiny boxes on their tables
I remember hearing, “You wish you had bought this Product during your University time.” I answered, “What about High School ?” He thought I was mocking him, but I understood that “We received life and a brain without User Manuals” and that Tony’s products are ageless. You need them at any age.
I remember a friend telling me how he got with his super Victoria Secret-like girl and said nothing during hours. Then I remember my choking.
Next to the sales team and the Ballroom was The Tony Robbins Foundation with another shiny product set. But they had a better strategy. They organized a silent auction for each product.
But, we were in Vegas, baby. I place my bets on all products.
That week I won a ticket for a 4-day seminar called Unleashed the Power Within and an audio program called Personal Power. I found a bonus inside, a Journal,
so imagine me walking through Las Vegas Casinos with a copy of Tony Robbins handwritten journal, and his phrase “The Secret of Living is Giving” written with caps locks and very high letters, probably the adrenaline was too high at that revelation 🙂 )
I then found out that he was driving an old Volkswagen at that time and stopped the car at any revelation just to have them in his Journal, and deliver them to us during his seminars.
Recently on Masterclass, David Lynch told us that we should all have a Journal,
to keep our treasure ideas inside, or risk losing them. David confesses he lost some ideas. How many did you lose? How many can you afford to lose?
I remember a nice phrase “Every time I read my journal, I receive help from a genius friend of mine.”
Then I got back to the sales team and completed my promise to them “I will buy from you what I do not win at the auction”. And I took the product “Mastering Influence” to improve my sales skills.
I started to learn Personal Power which is incredible because I never used my artillery to look inside my brain like the strange Russian toy puppet that has her eyes always looking inside. it is a transformational experience.
I joined Tony into the trip inside our brains and experiences and it is a brain expansion. The one that you “never go back to the original size” type
As a mathematician, I remember that I had to take the audio from the beginning
100+ times because this is what we learned to do when axioms, values, and beliefs changed while reading
You become a different person so you have to read the book again
Recently Tony told us that he did exactly the same thing as me.
He was on the wrong side of the door at NLP co-founder John Grinder seminar for licensed medical personnel only :-).
But that “inconvenience” did not bother him to stay alone at the door.
I was thinking of something similar during my experience
“The impact of staying, even 5 minutes, on the wrong side of the door
is the hunger that Silvester Stalone is trying to unleash and
rediscover in himself while writing new scripts, today”
So now you do this mental exercise –
Imagine yourself staying outside the virtual door of Unleash The Power Within.
30.000 people are inside, for 4 days learning and transforming their life
They are learning from the top CEO of the Planet.
They learn to envision a way to make their dreams a reality and how to get daily energy for their projects
They push one another to create more to develop new skills
And then they will remain connected in a private Facebook group for life
A group where you can not get in latter because you can not disturb the guys who are still talking about their concert
During this coronavirus lockdown, I entered in this UPW Facebook group with 30.000 people a large community where chapters of our life and brains books are written and talked about every day.
We talk about how to improve health with specialists and normal people who are fighting to make their body a temple
We talk about books that can improve your life, about things that we want to create, that we created about marketing, sales, and many others
And it all started with a 4-day Zoom session where you connect with Tony Robbins, his team and another 30.000 participants
You can see something similar in the Netflix movie “I am not your Guru”
But this Zoom session is bigger than anything because is about 30.000 living rooms connected, about kids and relatives jumping up and down all around the planet, making plans, sharing their projects
Do you like to go to concerts and sports games?.
Well, this time there is a catch –
From time to time, you will be the star.
Are you ready to show to 30k people how you can dance or what are the chapters of the books you wish to write or your personal projects?
My first UPW was live in London, got me to travel all around the Planet
create books, videos, desktop, and mobile applications
I am still connected with friends I met there
I still remember the sounds of the incantations of the people around me in The Excel London huge modern building.
It was a magical experience.
Every time I do not find the power to do something I use the power and energy of the people who were screaming around me. Because of their energy and will to win is now part of me.
I remember something similar. A great USA gymnastic girl jumped at an Olympic game with her leg scrambled.
I looked at the video and I recognized the face of the trainer from my country, Bela Karoly who prepared Nadia Comaneci and her team.
The trainer’s lips moved slowly from 10 meters away from the girl, and I could read the words on his lips “You can do it; You can do it”.
The girl, Kerri Strug, carried his advice in her mind all along her painful path to her jump
I had a deja vu because I saw Nadia live at Montreal when she delivered and took the highest note and performance ever I saw it through my fingers because my eyes were burning from fever and I had a long queue of penicillin on my table
I discovered this trick that you can learn through your fingers and even with your eyes closed.
I even won the Math contest at my University with these mental exercises.
So. What are the brain quotes that you carry during your life, like Kerri does, as I do?
Who’s your trainer?
Who are you accountable for your life and for the content of your brain?
Don’t you think that your development speed will improve if you are accountable ?
All the companies are growing using strict performance measurements.
When are you going to measure your developments, deliverables, and speed?
See you in the Virtual Room at Unleash The Power Within.
You will recognize me by my dancing moves.

The first UPW helped me a lot
I remember having to decide about a new opportunity and instead of making a long list of pros and cons
I had only one page with one question. “Is this a path to an Outstanding Standard?”.
And I said Yes.
Recently I noticed that other colleagues of ours were not that lucky.
We try to help them get top positions and they came back with a list of reasons and worries and pennies saved.
I remember Jim Rohn saying “He does not know that one motive to give up is enough – this guy has 3” :-(.
So they failed in their decision.
They did not even know that our life is a chain of decisions that can get us to improve the world, our groups, and our families or to be crushed by the complexities and crises of this Planet.
That we should focus on our creations and solving problems not on how Governments and Employers failed us on something
The Economy is changing and one day they will think that The Government or Employers hit them, when in fact is about making decisions without trips to all the books and brains of this Planet and without a guided trip inside your own brain.
My second UPW helped me to get my first printed book
My first UPW helped me to create applications, for apple watch, iPhone, Android, desktop, and cloud. Now I develop an Artificial Intelligence application and I created my first painting with AI
