In July, 1999, Ron Avignone, Giva founder, attended a UPW event in San Francisco and it served as the impetus to begin the creation of our enormously successful company!
In the spirit of giving back, Giva announces scholarships for free Power Pavilion tuition to a Tony Robbins' "Unleash the Power Within" seminar. UPW will help you cultivate and listen to your inner voice; the voice that should guide you and allow you to stand up to your own fear and uncertainty! You will learn how to use tools to help you live at an extraordinary level by creating and controlling your own future. It begins with understanding that most of our lives are just a "story" of limiting beliefs that we created or was told to us. Instead, you will realize on a visceral and experiential level that you have a choice to create a new "story" by changing your beliefs. You will learn how to break thought patterns by gaining leverage over yourself as you are indeed the only person truly in control of your beliefs! Any meaningful and lasting change requires a "massive action plan" to achieve results. Successful people do what unsuccessful people hate to do; they take massive actions and measure results with brutal honesty. The result is a gift to yourself, others in your life, and the world around you. You will also learn to cultivate a profound sense of gratitude for everything. In summary, you will learn to tap into your own power to create an extraordinary life of gratitude, health, personal relationships, career achievements and spiritual and monetary wealth and a sense of responsibility to give back. One weekend can change everything and put you into a radically different orbit for the rest of your life!
