Tony Robbins’ firewalk went wrong recently as 21 people were injured. Robbins, a self-help guru and motivational speaker, asked some of the 6,000 people who attended his seminar at the San Jose Convention center to walk across one of 12 lanes of “hot coals” set up outside.
A 25-year old college student said he heard “wails of pain, screams of agony” from participants in the firewalk, the San Jose Mercury News reported. “It was horrific.”
Robbins’s Web site promotes “The Firewalk Experience,” in which people walk across coals ranging in temperature from 1,200 to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, the newspaper reported.

The following are a few of the reasons why people are choosing to walk on fire:
To unlock the power of the mind
To learn how to overcome any fear and attain any goal
To realize your potential and increase self esteem
To break through barriers stopping you from reaching goals
To break bad habits, addictions and overcome self-sabotaging behaviors
To enhance personal growth and conscious awareness
To learn how to make life easy (it doesn’t have to be done the hard way)
Individuals who have done hundreds of fire-walks say that you learn something different from each fire-walk.
