21 Treated For Burns Hot Coal Walking at Tony Robbins Event
Motivational guru Tony Robbins says it’s all a matter of mind over matter. However for 21 people at his event in San Jose Thursday it wasn’t their minds that mattered it was their feet. According to AP they were treated for burns after walking on hot coals during one of Robbins’ motivational exercises. Why would anyone want to walk on red hot coals, you ask. Let’s ask Tony.
Walking across hot coals on lanes measuring 10 feet long and heated to between 1,200 to 2,000 degrees provides attendees an opportunity to “understand that there is absolutely nothing you can’t overcome,” according to the motivational speaker’s website.
Most of those hurt were treated for 2nd and 3rd degree burns. Personally, if someone tells me to “hot foot it” I’ll find someone else to talk to.
