Dominate your Day: Breaking Out: How Stepping Beyond My Fears Changed My Life

Dave Albin's fiery passion ignited in 1995 after he attended a Tony Robbins Seminar and walked on coals that were hotter than 1000 Fahrenheit. Despite his initial fear, he found himself celebrating at the other end of the fire lane, with a crewmember affirming, “You did it, you did it, you do it!” From that moment on, Dave's love, passion, and fascination for firewalking were born.

In the latest episode of the Dominate Your Day podcast (Episode 49), Dana Williams and Dave Albin delve into the topic of conquering your fears. Dave shares his exhilarating journey of facing and overcoming his fears after meeting Tony Robbins in 1995, which led to the creation of The Firewalk Experience. This episode captures riveting stories of people from all walks of life embracing their fears, from students in Grammar school to Google employees. The Firewalk Experience can be a powerful and transformative reminder of our inner strength and resilience, but it's not for everyone and should only be attempted with experienced facilitators. For those brave enough to step out of their comfort zones and face their fears, it can be a life-changing experience, according to Dave Albin.

In this episode, you’ll learn… 

  • The power of stepping outside of one's comfort zone and facing fears. 
  • The risks of staying too comfortable for too long, including missed opportunities for growth and development.
  • Relationship building: an experience with Google’s C-Suite executives
  • The Firewalk Experience and how it changed the life of Dave Albin
