Most people have a hobby they enjoy. Some people collect stamps or comic books. Others choose to go hiking and mountain biking. However, there is a growing movement of people who have a hobby that is a bit out of the ordinary. These people go firewalking, and you can too!
People don’t get into firewalking because they want to prove how tough they are or that they can withstand pain (after all, firewalking doesn’t hurt if done correctly!). It’s about much more than that.
Firewalking is about building your self-confidence, realizing that you have potential to do great things. It is about reducing the amount of fear that you have and learning to control that fear. Many people who have attended firewalking seminars have said that they feel more confident in other aspects of their lives. They do better at their jobs and they feel better about themselves.
Those who instruct people on how to go firewalking say that it is a metaphor for the figurative fires that people face throughout life. Some companies are even using these seminars for their employees to boost confidence and to promote team building.
To say that firewalking is a “hot” hobby would be an understatement. If you decide that you want to give it a shot, make sure that you have proper instruction before you begin. Find a group in your area that does firewalking and talk to them about joining. You will never be the same again!
