The Breakthrough Experience: Lessons Learned from The Breakthrough Experience

Last weekend I embarked on a whirlwind adventure, spanning 31 hours of travel, to immerse myself in the transformative The Breakthrough Experience with Dr. John Demartini. 


You might be wondering, “Why go to such lengths for just 22 hours in a room?” 


Well, as they say, sometimes you have to go the extra mile to smash through your growth ceilings blocking you from growing because…


A static state stifles the seeds of evolution. 


And deep down, I have the drive to evolve (you might relate?!). 


But I could feel stagnation creeping into my life, a subtle sense of plateauing in my personal and professional journey. 


The application of the Demartini Method in an intensely concentrated period of time has a way of shifting me, there and then and seeing the results, fast.


I see changes in my internal thinking, my business, my finances, and my relationships. 


As I navigated through the challenges of flight cancellations, airport sprints and 1 am wake-up calls, I clung to Demartini’s wisdom: “In every challenge, there is an opportunity.”


Entering the room filled with anticipation, like a kid on the eve of your birthday, knowing you have a new year ahead and wondering what life will be like at the new phase. 


One of the statements he made on the first day that still echoes in my mind is, “The moment you decide to master your time and attention, your life will change.”  


(funny – as we had worked on mastering priorities in our Business Class the week before, so it was a perfect message that aligned with our group learning)


The weekend challenged my perspectives, pushing me to reassess my priorities and redefine the areas where I invested my time and my energy.


As Richard Brandson says, ‘Time is the new money.’ But it is ‘time and energy is the new money.’


You can have a lot of time, and no energy, a lot of energy and no time. Both combined – wow!


It became clear that breaking through stagnation meant aligning my actions with my true values, fueling a renewed sense of purpose.


What is it that I truly value, and what is my true vision? Where do I really want to take my life over the next decade and beyond?


As he reminded us often, “The quality of your life is based upon the quality of the questions you ask.” 


Asking myself some uncomfortable and powerful questions helped me to get crystal clear about what I want, what i really, really want. (I wanna, (ha) I wanna, (ha) I wanna, (ha) I wanna, (ha) I wanna really, really, really wanna zigazig ah).


I left The Breakthrough Experience with a new fire in my belly.


And isn’t it beautiful that when you make a decision, the people who are not aligned fall away, the people who are aligned, magnetise you? 


So, was it crazy to embark on a 31-hour pilgrimage for a mere 22 hours in a room? 


Yes, if it means more inspiration to share with you, I’d do it again next week.


What are you prepared to do to set a goal and sail?
