The good news is far away in Texas Texas in US of A, there are many like us. More than 30 people have been treated for burns in Texas after a famous motivational speaker encouraged them to walk on hot coals to conquer their fears. Sky News reported that five people were taken to hospital on Thursday night, while several others were treated at the scene for burns to their feet and lower extremities, Sky News quoted fire officials Dallas as saying. They were attending motivational speaker Tony Robbins' four-day seminar, Unleash the Power Within, at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. The organizers said about 7,000 people had walked across the coals. They said only five had "requested any examination beyond what was readily available on site". On Robbins' website, the event schedule outlines the "Turn Fear Into Power" portion of the event. "Storm across a bed of hot coals," the website says. "Once you start doing what you thought was impossible, you'll conquer the other fires of your life with ease." More than 20 people were treated for foot burns after a fire walk at a Robbins seminar in San Jose, California, in 2012.One participant, Jacqueline Luxemberg, told WFAA that some people were not concentrating because they were taking selfies.
