It was 1 am on a Thursday night, and all I could think was “What the hell was I doing?”  


It was the first night of my 4 day experience at Tony Robbin’s Unleash the Power Within Seminar. This was the night we would walk on fire.
My mind was screaming at me. It was trying to protect me from possible danger. That’s it’s job, right!
However, I wasn’t letting my primal brain decide how this event was going to go. I was choosing this.
Luckily, Tony prepared us all with some extensive mindset work, before it was time.
When it was my turn, I stepped up on the grass and suddenly all the doubts and reasons not to do the walk over the hot coals, came rushing back in.
However, I had already told my husband, my business coach, and my friends I was going to do this. Plus, I wanted to do this. I knew I could. After all, I have given birth naturally. I knew this wouldn’t be anything like that.
So I took my deep breath and made my move (UPW friends, “MAKE YOUR MOVE”). I stepped quickly across the 1000º F coals and then celebrated like an olympic gold medalist on the other side.
I had done it. I was a fire-walker.
You might be thinking… I was crazy, but let me share with you my lessons from walking the fire walk.

Lesson 1:  The fire-walk is giant metaphor for achieving goals.

Friend, when we set a goal obstacles come up. Always! But when we keep stepping forward we will reach the destination.
The thing with the fire-walk is once you step on you will keep on stepping. There is not pausing or going slow with doubt. Once you step on you move with purpose and get your ass to the other side.
So often we set goals and then we let fear and doubt creep in. This pauses our progress. This slows our progression. That is why on paper the goal looks like it should only take 6 months, but 2 years later you are still working on it.
So I learned to attack my goals, like a fire-walker. Move swiftly and with purpose. The quicker the better.

LESSON 2:  The fire-walk taught me look at where I am going and not where I am.

Here is the deal. When you step on to those hot coals, you don’t look down. Your eyes are looking up toward the people at the end of the row. The focus is on where you are going.
Not once do you look down. Why? Because that is when the fear and doubt would sneak back in and start to trip you up or cause you panic. The last thing you want while passing over the flames is to pause and start thinking too much.
Panic, fear and doubt will be not help to you while you are walking on the embers. It would serve no positive purpose. NOT ONE! It is simply get your ass across the fire time. So you keep your eyes looking forward at the goal (the people at the end that are cheering you on) and keep stepping forward with intent and purpose.

Creating Clients

Clients are not attracted.  They are Created! We all say it.  “Attract Clients”.  It’s not a dirty word.  It is a part of what we do.  Yes, we attract people to us.  We have to or business will be a long time in coming.  But that is only one piece of the puzzle.   If...

THIRD (most importantly):  Mindset work is key to success.


Friend, I know you can imagine that in order to make that initial step on to the coals, you have to be in the right state of mind for it.
You can’t be in fear, or doubt, you have to be in certainty that you can make it across the bed of fire quickly and be safely.
To prepare for this we spent time visualizing the experience. We visualized the success at the end, the celebration we would make, the feeling of excitement that we would feel. We learned the technique for walking quickly with intent. We learned what to do when we stepped off the coals before we celebrated.
The focus was on showing the mind the experience before we moved into action.
Think of it like a using a GPS app. Once you see where to go on the map you can look around and easily spot real life the roads you are traveling on. It paves the way for you mind to make the connections to successfully do the activity.
This is a skill we can use with other goals that we set. Visualizing the outcome (for biggest impact in color, close up and like a movie), and learning the skills needed to do the activity is key.
For example if you are wanting to speak in public, learn the skills you need, practice them, and then visualize the experience in as much detail as possible. It will set you up for success. That way when you get to the point of speaking, your brain, is like, “We have done this before. We got this.”


So, friends in short my experience walking the fire, is all about mindset. You have to prepare your mind, step forward with purpose and intent, and and keep your eyes on the end goal. If you take that to other areas of your life. You will see your success unleashed.

What people are saying….

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I had my first call with Angela. I’d had group coaching calls for programs that I was in before, but I’d never had a 1-on-1 call with a life coach.  From the start, Angela and I hit it off, there was no awkwardness for either of us and, from my perspective I didn’t feel guarded at all (which isn’t typical for me).

We got to know each other a bit and then dove into the questions. Many of these questions are questions that I’d heard before, and some I’ve even asked myself and journaled on, but Angela knew just the right way to ask the next level of those questions to get things to “click”.  In just an hour together I had so many take-aways and 2 pages of notes!!

I was literally holding back tears (the good kind) because I FINALLY felt a relief – or freedom – that I didn’t even know was missing. In the few days after our call, because of our call, I had some amazing breakthroughs that have already contributed to me leveling up in my life and my business.

If you’re stuck, if you’re spinning your wheels like I was, I recommend working with Angela. She not only knows the entrepreneurial life herself, but she’s got the credentials and knowledge on the coaching side of things to help you get through those limiting beliefs, set some big goals, take action to achieve those goals, and next-level your life.
