Robert Raymond Riopel opens Act 1 laying out the dimensions of “the box” he grew up with, including the limited options of “work for the post office or in the oil fields” to provide for your family. At 21, he found himself the “old guy,” delivering pizzas seven days a week.
Faced with losing their gig, Robert and his wife, Roxanne, worked though months of challenges – including having very little money – to buy out the franchise pizza shops they were working in.
His wife, who was raised to seek out “box-free” perspectives, had a powerful influence, helping Robert overcome his early, conditioned, “follow the rules” limitations.
As he says, “The instructions for getting out of the box – are outside the box!”
Citing the training he offers around the world, Robert points to the universality of limiting messages and the “play small” programming that keeps people stuck. He contrasts those messages with the teaching he received from his mentors, who encouraged him to surround himself with visionary, forward-moving folk.
Robert rewinds his story, looping back to his experience of spending more than he was earning, landing in debt to the tune of over $150,000, “and stressed out beyond belief.” A well-timed seminar and taking ownership and responsibility for their financial practices set Robert and his wife up to clear their debt in nine months – and set them on a track of deep learning and growth.
We wrap Act 1 with a rich conversation about energetic awareness, (no spoilers!) including a look at masculine and feminine energies as they present in relationships…
