Tony Robbins Reveals “The Greatest Secret EVER!”

Ok, I have literally just finished watching this video and this has literally just sparked the motivation and desire for change. I honestly don’t think I am the same person after I watched. I think this is something that everyone needs to see and learn. Thank you Mr. Robbins for sharing your light with the world and allowing is to learn from you. I recommend that you all have a watch of this and if it doesn’t make you think differently about some part of your life then, I will gladly eat my shorts. But if you are about to watch this make sure you have a pen and paper (or phone) handy to take some notes because trust me you are going to want to.

As I was watching I couldn’t help take some notes of my own. So if your in a bit of a rush and can’t find the time to sit down and watch hopefully these notes I took can summarise Tonys talk and expose the key points to you. You can see these notes  below so you can take a look.

My ‘U-CARE Urban Culture Against Racism’ Journey

ucare_logo

‘Europe has always been a continent of migration and cultural diversity, and has drawn both cultural and economical wealth from this. Recently, the ongoing crises in Europe have lead to a rise of extreme right-wing and anti-European populism in many European countries, making worse the situation for immigrants and minorities in terms of racism and discrimination. Old manifestations of intolerance receive new vigour and new forms of racism, coupled with economic, social and political marginalisation of affected groups, deepen their exclusion from active social participation.
In November 2012 the new project “U-CARE – Urban Culture Against Racism in Europe” started, where 11 organisations in 8 countries join forces and pool their knowledge to combine an anti-racist/anti-discrimination peer coaching approach with urban culture and media. Young people with diverse cultural backgrounds (including the national majorities) will be educated in national seminars and an international summer academy 2013 to become U-CARE Junior Coaches. They will empower themselves to spread the message of increasing mutual understanding and combating racism and discrimination.’

‘Being part of urban youth scenes themselves, they have potentials of reaching other young people that are mostly inaccessible for adults from social majority groups. Thus, the U-CARE Peer Coaches will carry the torch of respecting cultural diversity and deconstructing negative stereotypes on to other young people. Together with them, they will do workshops, run campaigns and create public events making the U-CARE message visible, reaching 1000+ young people all over Europe. After this project, the U-CARE Junior Coaches will be ready to run further activities on their own.’ (Taken from the official U-CARE website http://www.u-care.org)

In the summer of 2013 I was selected to attend (along with seven of my peers) an incredible academy that was located in a little place called Heek Nein-Borg, that is right near the border between Germany and The Netherlands. Screen Shot 2013-10-30 at 02.12.40I went there to partake in a 2 week academy that was all about battling racism and discrimination. People from all over Europe came and I am proud to say that I now have friends and adopted family in Romania, Italy, Greece, The Netherlands, Hungary, France, USA (not a part of Europe) and Germany. Each of these people that I had the honour to meet and live with for 2 weeks, were artists and masters of their discipline I met incredibly skilled comic artists, beautifully gifted dancers, skilful wordsmiths and inspiring spiritual teachers.

We were asked to build relationships from outside of our own countries and by the second day we all, remarkably, already felt like a family. Which to me was a true testament to the souls that were surrounding me, how quickly we each could connect to the other was mind blowing, the miles and distance between our homes, the different languages we spoke were boundaries that were effortlessly overcome. We were the untied by one common goal so straight away we bonded. We were family

I have got to tell you this out of pure honesty every other experience in my life has paled in comparison to this. This entire experience was an eye opener into what REAL artistry is, what art means and the unmeasurable power it holds. The whole atmosphere just completely captivated me and held me hostage from day 1 right through to day 14, because this academy was so cut off from the rest of the world it was a very intimate setting and therefore we each got to see the world through the others eyes.

‘This entire experience was an eye opener into what REAL artistry is, what art means and the unmeasurable power it holds over the human soul’

Each and every single day was carefully mapped out so that every hour of every day we were working towards our ultimate goal. Long hours did not stop the creative souls from expressing themselves outside of  ‘academic’ hours. I remember vividly coming home from a VERY long day and walking past the building next to where I was staying and and I thought I could hear music so I went to investigate and to my surprise there I found a jam session taking place and all people were invited to attend if they wanted to. Outside you could over hear some a few people exchanging life stories and harsh lessons they have learned over a quite beer and a cigarette. Magic.

Just in case you don’t understand the pace at which we were working let me break it down for you. So, during some of the academic hours that you guys have just seen on the timetable from the academy (above right) a group of musical artists had come together and developed and concept for a song, written it, sang/rapped it, recorded it, produced it, developed a concept for a music video, shot it and edited it then finally published it within guess how many days? … Just to put it into perspective for you (according to wikipedia.org) it took Ms. Rihanna 5 months to shoot (all in the same location) and edit then publish the video to ‘Pour It Up’… now that you understand how long it takes the ‘pro’s’ to do it you will appreciate the awesomeness of this next sentence. It took the musicians three days to write, record, sing, rap and produce a song AND shoot, edit and publish a music video. HOW AMAZING IS THAT! ..Here is what they produced.

Where I’m From – U-CARE

Love that song. Great job guys!

Now as part of the cluster groups I ended up a part of a ‘super-group’ containing 15 members each with their own ideas and concepts. We eventually created our own Project … named Project Panda. Now this Project is so intense it will need its own page which I will be posting in the near future so stay tuned in.

To conclude this experience, this adventure this journey and discovery of self was an experience that I definitely will not soon forget.  Whilst I was there, there was a man that kept popping up with a camera it wasn’t until later on in the week I was informed he was creating a documentary. I must admit I was thankful that someone was documenting it all and capturing this incredible journey we were on because me being the doofus I am completely forget to bring a camera here is the completed documentary if you watch to the end you will see me at the end.
