Today I wake up at 3:03am. I am wired. I could see the headlines now, "America's Top Confidence Coach meets Top Strategist Tony Robbins." I can't stop thinking about what happened in the past 24 hours. It's almost like a dream. Not really sure what's real and what's not.
Yesterday, I was going to get my chance to ask a few questions to Tony Robbins and Thank him for everything he has done for me. I had never been so excited in my life. I set up 3 computers just in case. I tested my audio, my blab link and everything looked and sounded perfect. I do blabs all the time so this wasn't my first time at the rodeo! I turn on the lights and as soon as I jump in, Anthony Conklin (the amazing host of this blab, who totally rocked the interview), Vicki and Tony Robbins are on screen starting the interview!
I am finally going to get to thank the man that helped ignite the matches within my soul! Just to set the background here, and explain why I am so grateful for him. I wanted to die 14 months ago. I felt like I was dying anyway with no passion, no progress, no goals, no real excitement. Then I went to a Tony Robbins seminar in Dallas TX and He helped me understand how valuable my life was, how valuable each life is no matter who you are. He helped awaken me to the power within.... Here I had been searching outside myself all these years for the answer and Tony showed me that it was within me all along. After that event, so much happened, quit job, husband left me, quit smoking after 15 year Newport box habit, and so so so much more. So, come back to the interview here, as the time flew by as Tony gave us all gems and streamed his incredible energy into us on blab.
And then... Anthony said Carolyn Rim, this girl is a rockstar life coach, come on in!
So I jump on and I have never been so excited in my whole life. I was beaming. Smiling. I was practically flying. And then all of sudden, I open my mouth to speak and Tony Robbins says I can't hear you .... My audio didn't work! Omg I think. Of all the times for my audio to not work. I have done about 30 blabs with not one audio issue and now I am on the phone with my hero and he can't hear me. Tony looked at me and gave me such a warm smile, but meanwhile I am panicking, I am shouting at the screen No No No! They let me try to get on 3 times and no audio. He said he was so sorry, he had to go, and hung up. I felt crushed. I watched as his camera went off. Here was my chance and I blew it.
Then finally, as soon as Tony jumped off my audio started working. The two hosts (Vicki and Anthony) were like, "Aw man, we can hear you now. Thats a shame Carolyn." Everyone was messaging me like, saying so sorry Carolyn." As a life coach, I always do my best to look on the bright side no matter what the situation is. However, this was hard hitting. I was on the verge of tears.
Then the host Anthony said, "OMG Carolyn. You will not believe this." I stop breathing momentarily. He says, "I just got a message from Tony's assistant saying Tony wants the girl with no audio to come as his special guest to UPW Palm Beach."
At first I think, I was already going but I didn't have my ticket yet. I was planning on the money coming in for it soon. This is crazy I think to myself. I say how incredibly grateful I am for the ticket. I was still a little bit in shock when I first heard it and didn't connect the dots until later. If my audio had worked, I would not have been invited to UPW Palm Beach. I think about how I had 3 computers set up and how I tried from 3 different sources, and not one of them let my audio work until Tony jumped off!
To me, that's a sign. Destiny.
Here I thought the worst thing happened by my audio not working, but it was actually turned into a huge gift. I think back to all the dark moments in my life, I think about how grateful I am for them because they brought me to this moment right now and those moments of trials and tribulations made me who I am today. This past year, has been the hardest and the most rewarding year of my life.
I will end with one of my favorite Tony Robbins quotes. "Someone should tell us right at the start of our life that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every moment of every day. Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows." ~Tony Robbins
