“One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.” ~ Henry Ford

Take a moment and think about board breaking. What images pop into your mind? Do the images include a Karate Master who after many years of training is able to break through boards and blocks? The board-breaking events with Fire Power Seminars break through the stereotypical images and replace the Karate Master with YOU!

Board Breaking Team with Fire Power SeminarsOur board-breaking events are one of the most popular empowerment seminars. It has been our honor to facilitate these events for a wide range of ages, from students to adults and for personal and professional groups.

Board breaking begins with the very important exercise of identifying some of your limiting beliefs, obstacles or barriers. Participants are given a board and markers and asked to write down these self-imposed limitations on the boards. Breaking the board provides a physical and emotional breakthrough when the board is broken in half.

“When I saw the thickness of that board I thought to myself  “Are you kidding? How can I break this board?” When I did I was amazed! It made me realize I can do a lot of things that I have been afraid to try before. It was empowering. Thank you!”~ Marie C., Delray Beach, FL

The board becomes a symbol for all the barriers in life. The subtle messages of board-breaking events are powerful messages for a “Yes, I CAN” mindset moving forward. The elation of breaking the board that displays the written limitation(s) is contagious and memorable. Participants translate that elation into their own lives to overcome obstacles, conquer fears, and feel successful. Board-breaking seminars are real world opportunities to face fears and begin the journey of moving beyond those fears.

The environment that Fire Power Seminars creates is safe, supportive, and motivating. As each person steps up with their partner to break their board, the room is palpably attentive. Each person is inhaling in support of the person focusing on his or her board. With the snap of the board, the room erupts into applause and laughter.

“The group from Fire Power Seminars did a great job both teaching and motivating the Graduate Admissions and Concord Law School advisors during the “board-breaking” exercise. The folks at Fire Power really did their homework; the preparation call really helped to make sure that we were all on the same proverbial page. During and after the event, the energy level was noticeably high; participants talked for weeks about their experience and many now proudly display their broken boards at their desks. I’d recommend Fire Power’s board-breaking exercise to team leaders looking to provide a change of pace in terms of sales and developmental training.” ~ James Roberts, Executive Director, Kaplan University, Graduate Admissions and Concord Law School

Imagine if you can break a board in half using your bare hand with under an hour of instruction and motivation, what else can you do?
