Robin Sharma and I

posted in: Personal | 0

Robin Sharma, author of numerous bestselling books, such as “The Monk Who sold His Ferrary” or “The Greatness Guide” was in Kuala Lumpur recently.

I had the pleasure of attending the seminar and meeting him afterwards.

Honestly, I was impressed. Robin says that he is not a motivational speaker and not a Guru. Just someone who shares stories. Throughout the few hours that he share with me (and many others, of course), he told us stories, and we did a few exercises.

It wasn’t anything real special and I believe that was what moved us. Robin didn’t jump up and down to get the audience moving. He was sitting on his chair for longer periods of time, and moved very consciously. He didn’t shout into the microphone, and in fact, he spoke very softly.

It was intense and there was a huge sense of intensity in his voice and in his presence. This is a man who can share a lot with those who want to listen.

There were a couple of sentences that I picked up and which I start using in my trainings (and on me).

“Success is seductive. We fall in love with ourselves when we are successful. What that does is that we lose the hunger that makes us successful in the first place.”

“We fight for our beliefs because we are scared that we are wrong.”

“On the other side of fear is freedom.”

He gave us some few things that we can do in our lifes to change our attitudes and beliefs.

Learning is fun, and to improve ourselves, constantly, is important. Initially, when I received an invitation to attend the seminar, I wasn’t sure if I should spend the money, even so I got a discounted price. After the seminar, I bought many of his books and left in deep thoughts.

I was happy, ultimately, that I took the time and the effort to attend the training. I learnt something. And isn’t that something that is important? That we get value that exceeds our investment?
