Welcome to a brand-new Family Edition of The Tony Robbins Podcast! Join Tony Robbins, his wife Sage Robbins, and their dear friend and podcast host turned surrogate, Mary B., for an intimate, at-home conversation on the topic of CONSCIOUS PARENTING. In honor of Mother's Day 2024, Tony takes the interviewer's seat and talks to both Sage and Mary about the principles, strategies, tools, and learnings derived from their own journey as mothers. This enlightening conversation transcends traditional notions of parenting, as the trio explores the complexities of modern family dynamics. From blended families, stepparents, same-sex relationships, and co-parenting arrangements, Tony, Sage, and Mary discuss tips for how to make it work on the evolving landscape that is parenthood today. One of the highlights of this conversation is their working definition of MODERN CONSCIOUS PARENTING -- the shift from stress and fear-based parenting to an empowering and integrative awareness-based parenting.  The family discuss the helpfulness of evolving from high-resistance parenting towards a more mindful, self-reflecting, and self-aware approach. By prioritizing both presence and connection, they explain how parents can create an environment that nurtures the growth of beautiful little human beings – an inside out job. The three also emphasize the significance of our language choices around children, advocating for curiosity over fury and mindfulness over fear. They also share personal anecdotes from their own experiences as parents, highlighting the impact of screen and other stimulus on children's emotional development, creativity, imagination and worldview. This episode offers invaluable insights for parents, prospective parents, and anyone interested in creating meaningful connections within their families. By embracing conscious parenting practices, Tony, Sage, and Mary invite listeners to embark on a journey of personal growth, self-discovery, and lasting harmony.

The Happiness Formula: Retrain Your Brain to Be Happy with Mo Gawdat

Is happiness a choice?  And if so, can it be engineered?  Mo Gawdat, former Chief Business Officer of Google X and founder of One Billion Happy, believes this is true.  In fact, he's used his three decades of success in the tech industry to engineer his very own "happiness algorithm" to help all of us achieve this mind frame. Gawdat began his mission to conquer happiness after experiencing the ultimate tragedy.  In 2014, Mo suddenly lost his beloved son, Ali, which thrust him into depression and an existential reckoning with life's fragility. Rather than succumbing to this ultimate despair, Gawdat turned his grief into a catalyst for transformation. He soon embarked on a profound journey of self-discovery and healing, driven by a newfound mission to spread happiness and well-being to the world. Drawing from his personal experience and extensive research, Mo has authored the international bestseller "Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy” and continues to champion his message of happiness to millions worldwide. Via his writing, speaking engagements, and podcast, Gawdat offers practical tools and strategies for finding joy in the face of adversity.

"Forgiveness Is Not for Them, It's for You" - Immaculée Ilibagiza

How large is your capacity for forgiveness? Author and motivational speaker Immaculée Ilibagiza grew up in a small village in Rwanda, Africa. With her loving parents and three brothers, Immaculée excelled in school and eventually went on to study electrical and mechanical engineering at the National University of Rwanda. However, her life took a dramatic turn in 1994.  On April 6 of that year, the assassination of the Rwandan President ignited months of massacres targeting Tutsi tribe members across the country. To protect his daughter from rape and murder, Immaculée's father instructed her to seek refuge at a local pastor's house. There, she hid with seven other women in a cramped 3 x 4-foot bathroom for the next 91 days. Amidst the genocide raging outside, Immaculée battled anger and resentment, which threatened to consume her mind, body, and spirit. It was in this desperate state that she turned to prayer, clutching a set of rosary beads her father had given her. Through prayer and faith, she found the strength to resist hate, even using this dark time to teach herself English using only a Bible and a dictionary.  Emerging from her hiding place after 91 days, Immaculée faced a harrowing reality—her entire family, except for one brother studying abroad, had been brutally murdered. She also discovered the massacre of nearly one million extended family members, friends, neighbors, and fellow Rwandans. Despite unimaginable suffering, Immaculée shocked the world by forgiving the man who had killed her mother and brother.  Immaculée Ilibagiza's story offers profound insights and actionable steps to strengthen emotional resilience, release burdens through forgiveness, and contribute to a greater shift in collective consciousness. To share Immaculée's message of healing and forgiveness, Sage and Tony Robbins are honored to present this powerful moment from a private event with their Platinum Partners in Mexico.

Watch Your Language! The Power of Spoken Word

Welcome to another family edition of The Tony Robbins Podcast. In this intimate conversation, you'll hear from Tony Robbins, his wife Sage Robbins, and their surrogate and family podcast host, Mary B., as they explore the profound POWER of OUR SPOKEN WORDS. In a world where words carry an invisible but undeniable currency, our emotions and therefore the quality of our lives are sculpted by the meanings embedded in the words we choose.   There's power and responsibility within the words we attach to our experience of life – whether in the boardroom, family room, or across the airwaves. If you're feeling “stuck”, “anxiety,” “enraged,” “delighted,” “curious,” or even “depressed,” Tony shows us how to take inventory of the words we consistently use to describe our experience, and how we can consciously select our words to alter our experience of life.   This isn't your typical self-affirmation exercise; it's a powerful exploration of incantations, decrees, prayer, conversation, internal dialogue, and a practice that transformed Tony's life during the challenging times of his early years.   Listen to Tony's personal testimony as he shares -- during despair and uncertainty -- how he turned to incantations as a source of strength and transformation. From being broke and sleeping in a Volkswagen to who he is as a leader, husband, and father today, Tony's incantations have been a constant companion on his 46-year journey of growth, contribution, and impact. As a modern family constellation, Sage, Mary, and Tony also shed light on the transformational vocabulary and the language ratios they work to implement in their home, as well as the contemporary relevance of the power of spoken words, when it comes to the timely topic of freedom of speech and expression. It's an important reminder that our habitual words hold weight in contributing to the broader dialogue that’s shaping our world and our collective relationship with humanity.   Join us for more than just a chat – it's a journey into the power of language. Every word carries the ability to shape, transform, and awaken something within you and NOW is the time to harness this power and use it as we move forward into a new year!   If you would like to view the VIDEO version of this podcast episode (and many others), please visit: https://www.youtube.com/tonyrobbinslive   SHOW NOTES:     [00:00] Mary B. intro [01:00] Words create and words destroy   [02:35] Free speech, First Amendment, censorship   [03:50] Tony: Meanings are shaped by the words we select   [05:06] T.V.

Becker started her career in public relations, working for prominent media companies such as Warner Bros. and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. In 2001, she co-founded "Strategic, Inc.," which specialized in providing strategic communications and media relations services to clients in the entertainment, media, and consumer sectors.  However, following the death of her father in 2015, Gail needed a change. Emboldened by her two sons' diagnosis of Celiac Disease, Gail embarked on a mission to find both healthy and delicious alternatives to gluten-containing foods. She began experimenting with cauliflower as a substitute.  After countless trial and error, Gail succeeded in creating a recipe that her family actually adored. It was at this moment that CAULIPOWER was born. Thanks to Gail's vision and perseverance, CAULIPOWER has become one of the fastest-growing food companies in the United States -- and a $500M brand.  Gail has also proven that it’s never too late to become a successful entrepreneur. *** Business Mastery is the world’s premier business training event designed and hosted by the world’s #1 authority on personal growth, business transformation and peak performance – Tony Robbins.

Listen as they discuss unconditional love and the modern family. Tony begins with an introduction on our evolutionary advantage and the most powerful force on earth: LOVE.

This extended conversation covers topics including: expectations of intimate relationships, media messages, parenting, prince and princess romantic ideals, oneness, mindfulness, modern love constellations and chosen family configurations, sobriety, human behavior, couples communication, emotional fitness, the trap of blame and judgement, the importance of self-love, and more. This episode serves for all listening to be reminded that “love defies the odds.” It invites us all to offer the love that is our highest and truest human essence to our beloved, our parents, friends, children, brothers, sisters, co-workers, and beyond.  Let’s love this world up.  Enjoy!

Expand Your Identity | Featuring Tony Robbins, Sage and Mary B.

In this special podcast episode of The Tony Robbins Podcast, you’ll hear from Tony Robbins, his wife Sage Robbins, and podcast host Mary B., as they discuss the most important tool for creating lasting change: IDENTITY. Have you ever asked yourself, why did I try to make a change but not succeed?  Often, it’s “how” we define ourselves that can lead to either our success or stagnation.  As Tony notes, “The most powerful force in the human personality is the need to stay consistent with how we define ourselves.”  In fact, after 45 years of working with people in 195 countries – from the most successful to the most challenged – Tony believes that the single most important element in understanding what drives a person is to understand how they identify themselves.   Identity is simply the culmination of the beliefs that shape how we perceive ourselves. These beliefs control how we think, feel and interact with the world around us.  They also influence what we decide to do (and not do) in our own lives. Therefore, as Sage Robbins explains, what we put after “I am” is something we must always be mindful of.  By the end of this conversation, we hope you’ll have the tools and inspiration to update – and upgrade – your own sense of identity.  Maybe it’s time to expand it as you move toward a life of growth.  Or perhaps remove some of those labels that might be limiting you.   Note: In case you’d rather watch the video version of this conversation – which includes behind the scenes footage with Tony, Sage and Mary B – click on the “Expand Your Identity” video that’s on Tony’s YouTube Channel, found at youtube.com/TonyRobbinsLive.

Boom Chicka Mom & Pop! | One Couple’s Road to a $250M Acquisition

In this podcast, we drop you inside a Tony Robbins Business Mastery seminar for a 1-hour masterclass in how to build a brand that not only changes the game but empowers your customer base. You’ll hear Tony Robbins in a dynamic interview with the co-founders of BOOMCHICKAPOP, a wildly successful natural and organic popcorn brand that completely disrupted the snack industry.   Angie and Dan Bastian were looking to put aside some money for their kids' college fund when they started a small kettle corn business out of their garage.  Initially selling popcorn at outdoor events, including Minnesota Vikings games, the couple soon took their popcorn to Trader Joe's, Target, and Costco – gaining a crash course in how to operate a business along the way.  The real game changer took place when the then-named Angie's Kettle Corn embraced a bold new identity: BOOMCHICKAPOP.  Angie retired from being a nurse practitioner and Dan from a history teacher and baseball coach to run their company full time.  And after years of commitment and sacrifice, the Bastian's sold their business in 2017 to Chicago-based Conagra Brands for $250 million. In this candid conversation, the couple reveals how facing their fears and connecting to their customer base in a fresh and empowering way led to their ultimate success.

The Power of Perseverance | Shazam Co-Founder Chris Barton on Making the Impossible Possible

Chris Barton founded the app Shazam twenty years ago in 2002, years before the iPod and iTunes had even been created.  In fact, the flip phone had just come out. With an unwavering vision for what’s possible – and a core principle of creating from the heart and building with the mind – Barton built one of the most popular apps of all time. Shazam has surpassed 1 billion downloads, and has hundreds of millions of active users daily. It was acquired by Apple in 2018 for $400 million, making it Apple’s fifth largest acquisition.

The Fourth Turning | What past generations can teach us about our future

There’s no denying that we are part of a significant inflection point in human history. We are truly living in interesting times...  In this episode, Tony speaks with historian and demographer Neil Howe about the fascinating patterns of human history, as he and co-author William Strauss explained more than two decades ago in Generations (1991) and The Fourth Turning (1997).  If you’re feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or uncertain about all that’s happening in the world, this episode will give you a much-needed shift in perspective.

What does it mean to be a father? | An exclusive conversation with Tony, Sage, and Mary B. on the difference between a dad and a father

As we approach Father’s Day, join Tony Robbins, his wife Sage Robbins, and host Mary B. as they discuss their fathers, their modern family, a 14-month-old daughter, and the distinction Tony draws between a father and a dad. An archetype is just a fancy word for pattern and the universal father energy is within us and around us all, regardless of your relationship with your own father, whether you have children, or your gender. Our experience of father(s) shapes our life and influences who we become. Fathers, brothers, grandpas, godfathers, uncles, and father figures hold the powerful possibility to affect us in meaningful ways. By also recognizing these energies within us and calling upon them in different circumstances and contexts, we are able to live life fully, with access to a multitude of gifts, abilities, experiences, and emotions.  We invite you to notice, honor, and appreciate the father figures in your life as we commemorate Father’s Day with this exclusive conversation. "A father is love and strength. It's an absolute unconditional love beyond imagination and a strength to call to the highest part of them." – Tony Robbins SHOW NOTES [0:10] Introduction [1:07] What does it mean to Tony to be a father?

Your Success is 80% Psychology | How to Use Mindfulness and Meditation to Prime Your Nervous System for Peak Performance

Mindfulness and meditation aren’t just about spirituality or stress relief. In today’s world of constant demands and digital distractions, mindfulness is about making your moments truly matter and living up to your full potential. It’s about your power to put your attention where you want it to be and not on what someone else dangles on a screen in front of you. This is just one reason why Tony Robbins incorporates a gratitude meditation into his daily morning routine to prime his mind every single day. If you’re familiar with any of Tony Robbins peak performance strategies, you know that your ability to maintain a peak state is a key component of living the life you desire. Your state is affected by the way you use your physical body, your ability to direct your mind’s focus, and the language or meaning you give to your experiences. Knowing this, it’s no wonder that we aren’t able to be the best version of ourselves when we are in a stressed state. The incoherence of our head and heart, the jitters in our nervous system and body makes us less effective and less resourceful. In this 1-hour episode you’ll hear from Tony Robbins, his wife Sage Robbins, and podcast host Mary B. as they discuss one of the most valuable skills to maximize your mindset and prime yourself for power, clarity, concentration, and focused attention.   SHOW NOTES [0:00] Hi it’s Tony Robbins… [1:15] I used to think meditation was a waste of time [2:00] We don’t experience life, we experience the life we pay attention to [2:39] Tony and wife Sage and traveled the globe together for 22 years [3:30] A podcast on meditation?

The Power of Unconditional Love | An exclusive conversation with Sage Robbins

We’re all here together in this Earth School learning, doing the best we can, making mistakes, picking ourselves back up. The soothing balm that keeps us going is often another’s kindness, caring, connection, and love. Its power is truly transformational. If you think of any great mother, real or archetypal, they have a capacity to love unconditionally – to accept, to allow, to give, to understand, to listen, to nurture. A mother’s love brims with compassion and mercy. Even when their beloved has behavior that may be less desirable, there's still a universal knowingness and a loving essence for the human heart before them. That unconditional aspect of love is what is discussed in this one hour special edition episode. Hear Tony, Sage, and Mary B converse on what it means to sponsor life. There's a beauty to life. The mess of it, and the sweetness of it, and the pain of it. And so, it's not to say that there aren’t challenges and that there isn't pain in moments like right now with what's happening on the world stage. But we can contribute to the schism, or we can be a balm. We can be a balm of kindness, and goodness, and look to bring love, light, illumination, presence, connectedness, to be an ear to listen. It's amazing how that can shift another's world. I know what it feels like for me to receive that. I know what it feels like to offer that. And I think that’s a beautiful reality that sometimes in the busyness of life, we can forget how impactful in a moment we can touch another. That we can reach another. That we can move another. That we can remind each other because we're mirroring each other and as we're offering that we're experiencing that. Everything that I'm saying to you in this moment, it's really all selfishly for myself. Life is such a beautiful house of mirrors. We're all reflecting each other. - Sage Robbins LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST TO LEARN: How you can “sponsor” life How to tap into the powerful divine energies that flow through us all What life lessons two new moms have learned already   SHOW NOTES [2:00] Sage Robbins on “sponsoring life” [7:38] Mary B. & Sage on masculine and feminine energies and archetypes [13:58] On a mother’s unconditional love [14:56] In birth as in death [17:49] The teacher becomes the student [18:11] Tony pops in studio [23:10] Nurturing/Mothering of self [28:45] “You have influence over your children but you don’t have control” - Tony Robbins [31:37] The Serenity Prayer [35:08] Hello, I'm alive!

How ClassPass & Dave’s Killer Bread built success | Tony talks with the creators at Business Mastery

ClassPass users around the world have logged more than 100 million hours of workouts, while Dave’s Killer Bread is flying off shelves at a record pace. What do their founders attribute the success of their brands to? At a recent Business Mastery event, Tony Robbins hosts an in-depth conversation with both Payal Kadakia, the founder and CEO of ClassPass, and Dave Dahl, the founder of Dave’s Killer Bread.  ClassPass is this decade’s first unicorn, a start-up that reached a billion dollar valuation. But it is Kadakia’s passion for and dedication to her company’s mission of providing soul nourishing experiences to its community that drives her daily.  After spending 15 years in prison, Dahl seized his second chance by creating healthy, great-tasting bread recipes that became Dave’s Killer bread. He sold his company a few years ago to the second-largest bakery in the nation for $275M. While Kadakia and Dahl have very diverse backgrounds and entrepreneurial stories, they both harnessed challenges, obstacles and disappointments to drive them, rather than destroy them. They became servant leaders, dedicated to the needs of their raving fans, which translated into incredible opportunities to change the world through innovation and inspiration.

Karma, Consciousness, and Freedom | A Discussion with Sadhguru, Tony, and Sage Robbins

Sadhguru, a beloved friend of Tony and Sage, sits down to discuss identity, consciousness, inner freedom, human evolution, and his book Karma, A Yogi’s Guide to Crafting Your Destiny. Watch the discussion HERE. Sadhguru is a true luminary of our time and offers in this interview a fresh understanding of Karma and its common misperceptions. Removing  the stigma of “good Karma” or “bad Karma,” Sadhguru explains that our karma actually has the ability to enhance our lives if only we choose to use our past, and our memories of it, in ways that serve our perception of life, personal evolution, and spiritual growth.   [00:47] Sadhguru ID/Intro [01:18] What is Karma? [04.02] Karma is about liberation, not control [07:44] Karma is how to move from an unconscious to a conscious existence. [08:12] Responding (choice) v. reacting [11:53] One consciousness [12:59] Consciousness is not something we do [16:19] To be free, understand what ropes are holding you [17:06] What is Vasana? [19:07] Sadhguru working with prisoners in India and US [21:13] Large part of karma being created unconsciously [22:44] Sadhguru’s goal to make the whole world ecstatic [24:51] People have a fear of freedom [26:51] We die in installments. [28:37] Your attention needs to be with living. [29:26] How can you create a new destiny consciously? [30:17] Your experience of life is manufactured within you. [34:50] Why is intention so important? [36:42] Your intent is based on your identity [37:20] Fix your identity [39:14] What does Sadhguru mean? [41:44] How do you liberate Karma? [42:30] Awareness and abandon [43:22] The story of Gautama [50:32] Genetic compulsions are within all of us. [52:32] How will you use what is within you? [54:10] How do you coach people to pause? [54:52] Managing instincts consciously [57:10] What is the practice of just being and looking? [01:00:40] Not looking through the kaleidoscope of karma [01:02:38] Shifting perception from suffering to pain [01:03:29] Creating space between you and your body [01:07:23] What life throws at you is not your choice. What you make out of it is 100% yours [01:08:28] The gift of this existence [01:11:39] All human experience happens from within. [01:13:57] Sign off

The Future of Food, Energy and Space | Tony sits down with 4 visionary business leaders creating solutions to global problems

This past year was a trying one for all of us, and this new year has started off with challenges, too. It would be easy to believe that we as a society are headed in a negative direction, to be fearful of the future – but as Tony says, Fear is simply imagination undirected. What happens when you give direction to your imagination? That’s what we call faith. Faith is not learned, it’s something we are born with. Faith is what fuels us through times of fear and uncertainty. It is more powerful than any emotion, even fear. When all hell is breaking loose, it gives us the ability to find our center, to help ourselves and others to find answers, to find a higher meaning in the midst of our pain and in spite of our fear. And if you’re a leader, you take that certainty and transfer it into others, because human conviction has a viral effect and will spread. Faith is knowing that at our core we're more than anything we will ever face, and we can handle whatever life brings us. We always have and we always will. That is the power of the human race. In this episode, Tony sits down with four extraordinary human beings that are working to solve major global issues, who believe so strongly in their solutions and have so much certainty that it’s almost contagious!  These four leaders are not only world changing technology experts, but the founders and CEOs of companies that are bringing the stuff of science-fiction novels to life. And faster than anyone thought possible. They're doing things that will change the lives of billions of people all across the globe. Their ultimate outcome is to increase that quality of life for everyone in existence and for generations to come.  In this episode, you will learn about:  The future of food. Hear from CEO and co-founder of Upward Farms, Jason Green. (Yes, you read that right – he may indeed have a green thumb!) Upward Farms is a Brooklyn-based indoor aquaponic farm sustainably growing leafy greens and fish with the highest ecological and quality standards. Jason is changing the way we grow food and challenging the environmentally devastating practices we’ve been using for so long.  The future of energy. Learn from the genius mind behind the monetization of search words, Bill Gross, whose company, Idealab, is the longest running technology incubator in the history of the world. He’s taking on sustainable energy like no human on earth has done before.  The future of space. Hear from Mikhail Kokorich, CEO of Momentus, a space transportation company. Mikhail’s commercial and private space travel is the stuff of every sci-fi lover's dreams. But he’s taking it from beyond the pages of books and movies and making it real with special water propulsion technology. And he’s not just stopping at transportation.  The future of business. Tony pulls insights from founder and general partner of Prime Movers Lab, Dakin Sloss. His company is all about seeing the value in people’s visions for starting new companies, and providing the funding and guidance to get them off the ground. But these aren’t your average entrepreneurial startups, these are companies that will change the way we experience life.  Most of you know that Tony is incredibly passionate about anything that can increase the quality of people's lives. He’s obsessed with finding answers and solutions. He’s also obsessed with finding entrepreneurs and companies that are on the brink of changing the world and being a part of that in any way he can. For Tony, this usually means more than just investing with them financially, but going on a journey with them, and investing on a soul-level. We hope you enjoy this episode! "I'm obsessed with entrepreneurs and companies that are about to change the world." - Tony Robbins

Make 2021 Your Best Year Ever | The Last Fireside Chat with Tony and Sage Robbins

Despite a universally challenging year for all, there have been so many blessings – if we take the time to stop and look. In this third and final Fireside Chat of 2020, Tony and Sage share the simple rituals they do together with their family at this time each year.   Listen to hear their own new year traditions, and they’ll encourage you to put together a few photos, too. Note your big accomplishments (and the little ones!), remember the magic moments, reconnect to the joy and laughter that can easily be forgotten but recreated just as quickly as you ground yourself in gratitude and appreciate those moments all over again.  Consider the challenges of the past year, too, through a different lens – the circumstances or situations that may have caused pain at the time but pushed you to evolve and grow, built resilience, forged progress, and, as a result, ultimately blessed your life. Find the blessing, be the blessing, and your life will be blessed. And, as you’ll hear in this episode, as we head into the New Year and this entirely new world we all find ourselves in, Tony wants to give you the opportunity to grow even more, and create whatever it is you truly desire – the life you were made for.   Watch below to take part in the gift he is offering, free of charge, so that you can make 2021 not just better than the last, but your best year ever. “When you’re resolved, you’ve cut off anything other than what you’re committed to – every ounce of your soul is there.” – Tony Robbins About The Fireside Chat Series: In the 1930s and 40s, a time when the country was struggling even more than it is today, we had an amazing leader named FDR. He began doing evening radio programs called “fireside chats,” designed to communicate directly with the American people.  At that time, 90% of people in the U.S at that time had a radio. Today, 96% of people have a cell phone and nearly all have internet access. Instead of being unified and watching all the same things, and having a collective experience, now we're all kind of separated. And we can see division in our culture. We desperately need a form of unity, a form of connection, more humanity and more kindness in the world. Tony and Sage thought to bring back this time-honored tradition of a fireside chat as a means of unity and compassion. We’re entering the winter season, drawing inward into our homes and into ourselves, reflecting on the hardships and blessings alike this unique year has brought. In this three-part series, you will hear them dispel their hopes and dreams for you this holiday season, as well as share some of Tony’s powerful tools and strategies to not only survive the coming months, but to step up and thrive.

How will we feed the next billion? | Tony's interview from XPRIZE: Future Positive

For over 25 years, XPRIZE has convened the brightest minds from around the globe to tackle the world’s greatest challenges. One of the most pressing problems facing humanity today is food insecurity, and the need for nutritious, affordable, and sustainably-sourced food has reached critical status. In this exciting interview with XPRIZE Founder and Executive Chairman, Peter H. Diamandis, Tony talks about the inspiration behind the latest competition, the $15M XPRIZE Feed the Next Billion. This episode is from XPRIZE's own Future Positive podcast and released with their permission here. By 2050, Earth’s population will have reached 9.7 billion. The demand for high protein products is increasing while the impact from current meat production practices is devastating our planet. The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened food insecurity, food safety, and access for many communities around the world. Furthermore, cities projected to face rapid population growth and wealth increase are experiencing surges in demand for poultry and fish as opposed to red meat. While there is increasing activity in utilizing plant-based and cultivated approaches to create meat alternatives, more work is needed to make it widespread. XPRIZE Feed the Next Billion is a $15M competition incentivizing teams to produce chicken and fish alternatives that replicate or outperform conventional protein in structure, versatility, sensory properties, and nutritional profile, while having a lower comparable environmental footprint. Tony has made it one of his life's missions to help feed as many people as possible. His family struggled to put food on the table growing up, and it was one stranger’s kindness that inspired Tony to give back as an adult. As a philanthropist, through his partnership with Feeding America, Tony has provided over 500 million meals in the last 5 years to those in need. He’s on track to provide 1 billion meals over the next 5 years. Peter H. Diamandis is the founder and executive chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation, which leads the world in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions. He is also the executive founder of Singularity University, a graduate-level Silicon Valley institution that counsels the world's leaders on exponentially growing technologies. As an entrepreneur, Diamandis has started over 20 companies in the areas of longevity, space, venture capital and education. He is cofounder of BOLD Capital Partners, a venture fund with $250M investing in exponential technologies, and co-founder and Vice Chairman of Celularity, Inc., a cellular therapeutics company. He earned degrees in molecular genetics and aerospace engineering from MIT and holds an M.D. from Harvard Medical School. Diamandis is a New York Times best-selling author, and his newest book in this series of exponential technologies – The Future is Faster Than You Think – was released on January 28, 2020. His favorite saying is “the best way to predict the future is to create it yourself.”

How to Trade Expectations for Appreciation | A Fireside Chat with Tony and Sage Robbins (Part 2)

Tony and Sage sit down for an intimate fireside chat to unpack the stress many of us feel around the holidays. We all have rules and beliefs about how things are supposed to be or how people are supposed to be. And when they do not meet our expectations, we suffer. The holidays can hold a magnifying glass over these expectations, whether that be family dynamics, budgets, or how well the turkey turned out.   Listen as Tony and Sage suggest a new approach: To replace expectation with appreciation, to lead with gratitude and thanksgiving instead of worry, fear or anger. Sage eloquently calls us to take pause on the list-making and to-do’s associated with getting ready for the holidays. And Tony provides us with an invaluable tool for how to get more joy out of each individual moment and experience. It’s time to make a decision about what kind of holiday you want to have, to bring a new level of enjoyment for yourself and to be a blessing to those you love most.  “What’s wrong is always available, so is what’s right.” - Tony Robbins  About The Fireside Chat Series: In the 1930s and 40s, a time when the country was struggling even more than it is today, we had an amazing leader named FDR.

Find the Blessing | An Intimate Fireside Chat with Tony and Sage Robbins (Part 1)

Tony and Sage sit down for an intimate fireside chat to personally share what their own experience has been during this time, and also share a message of hope and unity during this unique holiday season. Together they tell us how this is a time to move forward, to create, to be able to step into another dimension of who we are. Because what we get will never make us happy; it’s who we become and what we contribute. “We are not the manager of our circumstances, we are the creator of our life experience.”  – Tony Robbins About The Fireside Chat Series: In the 1930s and 40s, a time when the country was struggling even more than it is today, we had an amazing leader named FDR.

Continuing the Conversation for Healing and Unity | (Part 2) Taking a stand against injustice and creating real change

“Let’s create not only some healing here but some real change. … Change is automatic, but progress is not. And so this is a conversation today to see if we can create some progress. … What this is really about is getting to what we can do to tap into unity, and love, and compassion, and connection to one another. What can we do to move forward?” – Tony Robbins   It’s been over three months since the death of George Floyd, the unarmed, 46-year-old black man, who was unconscionably killed by police in broad daylight during an arrest in Minneapolis. Captured on cell-phone video and amplified in the media, the whole world witnessed his horrific death, and it has reignited a centuries-long conversation around race supremacy in the United States and the injustice that African Americans can face. The aftermath of George Floyd’s death — and combined stacking of others like Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and most recently the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis.  — has brought this nation to a threshold. With thousands of people around the world in grief, humanity is speaking loud and clear: enough is enough, the time is now to create real change rooted in our nation’s foundation of ‘justice for all.’ Beyond change, we need progress. As Tony said in the first episode of this special two-part podcast series, change is automatic – but progress is not. The conversation continues. In this 2-hour episode, Tony hosts a panel of five unique, multi-generational leaders who share their experience of what it is to be Black in America and lend their voice to what we, as a unified society, need to listen to and hear, to unite, to make progress, and ultimately to tap into love, compassion, and our deep connection to one another. “If love is not yet won, the battle is not yet over.” – Martin Luther King III Part 2 Guests:    Charlamagne tha God (Radio show host, author, influencer) Rev. Jesse Jackson (Civil rights activist, former aide to Martin Luther King, Jr.) Barbara Becnel (Journalist, film producer, prison reform advocate) Van Jones (Author, television host) Derrick Johnson (President and CEO of the NAACP)

A historic conversation for healing and unity | Taking a stand against injustice and creating real change

“Our hope is to have you panelists share your experiences of what this is all about. What do you want all of us – maybe who have not had these experiences – to know, but also to appreciate. And most importantly, what can we do to make real progress? It’s really not about pointing fingers here. What this is really about is getting to what we can do to tap into unity, and love, and compassion, and connection to one another. What can we do to move forward?” – Tony Robbins On May 25, George Floyd, an unarmed, 46 year old black man, was unconscionably killed by police in broad daylight during an arrest in Minneapolis. Captured on cell-phone video and amplified in the media, the whole world witnessed his horrific death and it has reignited a centuries-long conversation around racism in the United States and the injustice that African Americans can face at the hands of police and law enforcement.  The aftermath of George Floyd’s death – on top of the stacking of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, and Eric Garner just to name a few other horrific losses – has brought this nation to a threshold. As thousands of people have come together around the world with heavy hearts, humanity is speaking loud and clear: Enough is enough, the time is now to create real, lasting change. Beyond change, we need progress. As you’ll hear Tony say in this episode, change is automatic – but progress is not. In this 3-hour episode, Tony hosts a historic conversation with ten unique leaders who share their experience of what it is to be black America and lend their voice to what we – as a unified society – need to do at this pivotal moment to collectively unite, make progress, and ultimately tap into love, compassion, and connection to one another.  Podcast guests include: Martin Luther King III (Global human rights leader), Benjamin Crump (George Floyd’s family lawyer), Lora King (Founder & Executive Director, The Rodney King Foundation), Officer Gomez (11-year veteran of the police force), Sybrina Fulton (Trayvon Martin’s mother), Doc Rivers (Head Coach, Los Angeles Clippers), Bishop T.D.

Hidden in plain sight | One man’s fight to end human trafficking, and bring light to the darkest side of humanity

Human trafficking is the worst part of humanity, and it’s hiding in plain sight. It’s hard not to ignore it, because it’s so unbearable to think about. When you hear about it on the news, or see it in a movie, most people turn it off, because it’s simply too hard to imagine a child of your own, a sibling, a niece or nephew, godchild, in such a situation. It’s difficult, and it’s dark – and most people don’t want to face the darkness.  But one organization, Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), is looking darkness directly in the eye. In the past six years of their existence, they have rescued 3,500 victims and assisted in the arrests of more than 1,500 traffickers around the world through coordinated rescue operations and recovery programs. Their work, and mission, is one that Tony and Sage Robbins are deeply passionate about.  In this episode, you'll hear an interview with O.U.R. founder, Tim Ballard, on how they’re working to eradicate human trafficking – and incredible stories of survival and healing.

How to free yourself of hurt, anger and expectations | Offering the gift of forgiveness

"Forgiveness is the gift you give yourself, not a gift you give someone else." – Tony Robbins We will always carry anger and hurt in our hearts as long as we have expectations of other people and life conditions we can’t control. But that built-up resentment only ends up hurting you. As Nelson Mandela said, "Resentment is like drinking a poison and then waiting for the other person to die." Forgiveness is understanding that the only person you hurt when you’re upset – no matter how justified it may be – is yourself. In this episode, you'll hear from two people who carried resentment with them from past events and expectations – and didn't even know it. But once they released the blame they held in their hearts, they experienced a level of freedom and strength of spirit. Hear the stories of Sarah Foley and Dimple Thakrar, both in entirely different situations, but tied together by the common thread of the power of forgiveness.

The mindset you need for a truly magnificent life | Knowing the gift of grace

Grace is not something you earn. It's not a reward, or something you pray or ask for. And it has nothing to do with karma, or your past actions. You don't deserve grace – it just falls on you. What's remarkable about grace is that the more you acknowledge it, the more it appears. Grace can be a guiding force when your intent is pure and your will is strong, but something else pushes you through. Janet Taylor knows the power of grace. When her daughter landed in the emergency room after overdosing on drugs, Janet didn't know what to do. She didn't even know how to react – with fear? Anger? Sadness? When she finally let go of what she couldn't control and gave in to faith, that's when she started to appreciate her daughter's progress away from addiction, even the smallest steps. Jenn Ferris also knows the power of grace. As a child she was abandoned at a bus stop in her village in India. She could have chosen to put a negative meaning on that, and many other things in her life, events that were out of her control. But you'll see how grace appeared her life, because her heart was open and her faith was strong. To learn more about the gift of grace, visit www.tonyrobbins.com/gifts.

Democratizing luxury | How Rent the Runway changed the way we shop and grew to a $1B company – an interview with co founder Jenny Fleiss

Jenny Fleiss created Rent the Runway, a company now valued at $1 billion, in the wake of the most severe economic recession the United States has seen since the Great Depression. When everyone else was panicking in 2008 and 2009, Jenny and co founder Jennifer Hyman saw an opportunity. The problem they were trying to solve was simple enough: Looking into your closet and realizing you don’t have anything to wear to an important event, like a wedding, but don’t have the budget to buy something new. So they innovated, and created an entirely NEW way to shop by allowing women to rent designer clothing, online, for a fraction of what it actually costs.  Today, the rental, or sharing economy is booming – companies like WeWork, REI, and Zipcar make it possible for us to experience something, without the cost of ownership. But to put this in perspective, nothing like this existed at the time.  Jenny shares how she and her co founder got Rent the Runway up and running – and how they grew the business to where it is today. You’ll also hear Jenny’s philosophy on how she approaches hiring talent at JetBlack, a personal shopping service she co founded after leaving Rent the Runway, which is not only critical when you’re starting a business, but also when scaling it.  The interviewer for this episode is Scott Harris, a coach, mentor and a speaker at many of Tony’s events, including his business event, Business Mastery.

Mike Tyson’s road to a second chance | The polarizing highs and lows of one of the most thrilling, controversial and celebrated boxers of all time

Mike Tyson is a household name – you might know him as the youngest heavyweight boxing champion in the world, or maybe by his cameo in the movie The Hangover.

Becoming Michael Phelps | Tony talks to the greatest Olympian of all time about the art of the comeback, what it means to win, and the power of pushing through

Having won 28 medals, Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian in history. He has trained and competed at the highest levels of elite swimming, has broken world records, and forged a lifelong career unrivaled by any other. Even after he announced his retirement in 2012, he made a valiant comeback in 2016 at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, where he won five more gold medals to bring him up to a remarkable 23 first-place finishes. Today on the The Tony Robbins Podcast, you are about to hear from this legendary athlete, as he and Tony have a one-on-one interview at Tony’s private home, as part of a small event held for his Platinum Partners. You’ll hear Michael Phelps, who shares with the groups how he came to dominate the sport of swimming – and the setbacks he faced along the way. You’ll also hear from snowboarder Shaun White was also there, so you’ll hear a bit from him towards the end. (You can hear Shaun’s full interview right here on the podcast, a few episodes back). Michael has trained and competed in the swimming pool for the vast majority of his life. He made his Olympic debut at just 15 years old, and he spent the next 16 years mastering the sport through hard work and determination, intense focus, and an unwavering trust in his long-time coach, Bob Bowman. Touted as one of the greatest coach-athlete partnerships in the history of swimming, Michael opens up to Tony about his unbreakable relationship with Bob – who not only molded him into at supreme athlete, but who also played an essential role in his emotional upbringing. But not everything for Michael Phelps has been paved with gold, and his rise to the top was not without a series of well-publicized stumbles. In this interview, he opens up about his own struggle with depression, which affects over 40 million people in the U.S., and takes a particular toll on Olympic athletes who are on a biochemical high during the games, and afterwards, return home feeling empty and directionless. Now, Michael’s life is far different from what it once was. He’s a husband and father of two boys. He’s more patient. He spends time writing. He’s rekindling a relationship with his father. He’s not planning on another Olympic comeback – instead, he’s using his platform to help save lives through the Michael Phelps Foundation and his commitment to water safety and mental health programs and awareness. And as he shares with Tony, to him, that’s a comeback that’s bigger than winning an Olympic gold medal.

From home-business to billion-dollar fitness empire | Orangetheory Fitness’ meteoric rise to the top

Life-changing. Addicting. Intense. These are just a few words that have been used to describe Orangetheory – the fitness studio known for its science-backed, technology-tracked, coach-inspired workouts. The franchise has taken the world by storm – in just eight years, it has amassed a million members, expanded to over 1,100 locations around the world, and has crossed a threshold that very few businesses manage to reach: exceeding $1 billion in revenue in a single year. But what is it that fueled Orangetheory’s rise to the top of an industry that is so full of competition? In this episode of the peak performance season, we are bringing you to Business Mastery – where you have a front-row seat at the Masters of Disruption panel. At this panel, Tony spoke with Ellen Latham, the creator and co-founder of Orangetheory Fitness. You’ll also hear a bit from Danny Meyer, founder of Union Square Hospitality Group and creator of Shake Shack, as he participates in the panel, and even asks Ellen a question toward the end. As you'll soon find out, Ellen’s energy is boundless, and certainly infectious. And it was this very energy, in combination with her creativity, determination and pure grit, that got her through the most difficult time of her life – a time when she was laid off her job, out of work and a single mother to her 9-year old son. She tells Tony about her bulletproof mindset during that time, and the sports psychology technique she used to turn what could have been a massive break-down – into the massive break-through that led her to create Orangetheory fitness. Orangetheory offers heart rate-based workouts, built around the physiological concept of excess-post-exercise oxygen consumption, or E.P.O.C., where the body continues to burn calories at a higher rate even after the workout is over. But behind the science of Orangetheory is something far less measurable, but just as powerful: its raving fan culture. Ellen reveals to Tony how she and her partners have strategically built an army of fiercely loyal clients – and what they’ve done to scale this culture across the globe.

The insatiable fight inside UFC’s Dana White | How one man’s passion and vision led the UFC to the ultimate comeback

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we are bringing you to Business Mastery – where Tony interviews the business leaders behind some of today’s fastest growing companies. You’re going to have a front-row seat as Tony sits down with Dana White – the current president of The Ultimate Fighting Championship, or UFC, and the man that took the once-fledgling organization from near bankruptcy to a globally popular multi-BILLION dollar enterprise. Outspoken, charismatic and unabashedly unapologetic, it’s fair to say that there are not many leaders of major sporting organizations quite like Dana White. Coming from humble beginnings in the Northeast, his fight to the top was an unlikely one – and nothing short of a roller coaster ride. Dana talks to Tony about the serendipitous mix of events that catapulted him from the bottom, all the way to the top of the UFC – and the risky decisions he made along the way that led the UFC to its ultimate comeback. Like the decision to embrace regulation instead of run from it, to move away from Pay-Per-View and broadcast fights on free TV, and perhaps the biggest decision of all, the one that changed the face of the sport – to allow female fighters into the organization. Dana has achieved success on a massive scale – he sold UFC for a whopping $4 billion back in 2017. But his fight isn’t over – and as he tells Tony in this special interview, he feels he hasn’t even scratched the surface of his total impact.

The Unflagging Faith of Nick Foles | How the NFL’s star quarterback overcame his fears and self-doubt to find freedom – and success

What’s standing in your way of achieving your goals, your dreams? What is holding you back from taking that next step forward? For many of us, it’s fear. Fear of failure, fear of the unknowns. We become our own worst enemy, doubting ourselves into paralysis. But imagine what your life could look like, if you were able to find a reason that was so much bigger than yourself to propel you forward. I’m not talking about money or material objects, I’m talking about a greater purpose and a resounding and unflagging faith that for you, there is no other option that to give it everything you have. In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, you will hear a very special conversation between Tony and Eagles Quarterback, Nick Foles. Now this interview happened after Nick helped lead the Eagles to their Super Bowl Championship in 2018, where he was also named the game’s MVP. But what you’ll see is that even in spite of his incredible accomplishments, Nick’s sense of past failures and mistakes is never too far from his mind. Nick reveals his constant battles with self-doubt and a fear of failure. In fact, it was this fear that almost kept him out of the NFL entirely. But through his faith and his family, Nick found a greater sense of purpose and strength that have helped him move forward. And he’s even adopted an entirely new perspective when it comes to fear. He’s a firm believer that if he hadn’t experienced failure and pain in his past, he wouldn’t be where he is today. And along his journey, he’s seen how immensely important it is to be open, honest and transparent about your weaknesses. Because by acknowledging and even embracing your deepest fears, you actually free yourself, and can then grow into the person you were meant to be.

The Power of Unity | Tony and Pastor Miles McPherson discuss the third option to healing the racial divide

Police shootings. Border protests. White nationalist rallies. There’s no denying that we live in a time of racial divide that only seems to be growing. And while it’s easy to direct our focus to these great chasms that separate us, this is actually when it becomes even more imperative to start focusing on what unites us. In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, Tony is sitting down with Pastor Miles McPherson of the Rock Church in San Diego, who leads tens of thousands of diverse individuals in sermon every month. He’s also a former NFL football player, motivational speaker, and he has recently authored The Third Option: Hope for a Racially Divided Nation. Pastor Miles brings a refreshingly different perspective to the discussion around race and race relations, asking the tough questions about how we ended up in this state of tension and turmoil, and what we can do on a psychological and practical level, so that we can initiate real change. Where does racism come from? Are we all biased in some capacity? How do we expose racial divides, and most importantly, how do we move beyond them? These are just some of the questions that Tony and Pastor Miles have a tough, honest conversation about so that we can all find a way to be part of the solution. Because perhaps it’s time for us to all take a step back, stop focusing on what separates us, and star focusing on what we have in common, so that we can all work together to build a more united world.

Shaun White’s Ultimate Redemption | Tony finds out how this Olympian and X-Games champion made a single decision that led him to greatness

Success leaves clues. If someone has done very well financially decade over decade, they’re not lucky - they’re doing something different. If someone is fit and healthy for 20 years, they’re not lucky - they understand what it takes. They have a strategy that works, and if you follow that path and sow the same seeds, you’ll not only save yourself decades of trial and error, you’ll be that much closer to operating on the level that you want to be. Perhaps your goal is to become so mentally fit that absolutely nothing will stand in your way. Maybe you’re ready to take your physiology to the next level and be in a peak state of fitness. Or maybe you’ve drawn that line in the sand, refusing to live a single day longer in suffering, and are ready to start living a life of happiness, joy and fulfillment. Whatever it is, we can all learn from others who have been there and already overcome the challenges that we are facing. If you want lasting results, you must keep growing. What can you learn by studying others’ paths to success? In this first episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast Peak Performers season, you’ll have a front-row seat as Tony sits down with three-time Olympic gold-medalist Shaun White - who holds the record for most X-Games gold medals and most Olympic gold medals by a snowboarder. Shaun was an unlikely athlete. Born with an actual hole in his heart, he went through several operations when he was just a child. But that hardly slowed him down. He was skateboarding by 5 years old and snowboarding soon after. By 13 he went pro, and began competing in everything from halfpipe to slopestyle, making a name for himself in the X-Games. Along the way, every failure or missed opportunity only fueled his competitive drive, and soon propelled him into the Olympics - where the highs and lows not only took a toll, but ultimately helped Shaun become the athlete, and the man he was truly meant to be. Shaun talks to Tony about his lifelong journey to becoming one of the most successful snowboarders in history, the uphill battle back from devastating injury and a massive loss at Sochi, and the ultimate redemption at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. They delve into what it means to embrace risk, to absolute importance of mental and physical fitness, and why a single decision can lead you down the path to greatness.

Is it time to let go? | Making the difficult decision to end a relationship

How many times in your life have you set expectations for yourself? Perhaps you believed you would have achieved a number of goals by a certain time. Or maybe you expected that you’d be married by a certain age. Or that your relationship would last a lifetime.

Are you with the right person? | Tony explains the importance of selecting your partner consciously

One of the most important decisions you could ever make is the person you choose to spend the rest of your life with. Yet so many of us make this decision with blinders on - ignoring some of the most glaring red flags. And it is these red flags that often become very real issues in the relationship, and can lead you down a path of pain, suffering and heartbreak. In this episode of the Real Breakthrough Series, we’re going back to one of Tony’s most intimate events, where he’s working with participants on building extraordinary relationships. While it may not sound particularly romantic, Tony shows us why love and passion are not the only things that matter when choosing your partner. In fact, he explains just why we must make a concerted effort to choose our partners consciously. And he even offers up the three most critical questions that we must ask ourselves when we are considering this important decision. Love is not enough. It’s vital. And it’s what life partnerships are built upon. But in the end, it’s not enough. Because opposites may attract, but it’s those with similarities that bond. And if you’re looking to build a lifetime partnership - you must remember that the right person and the right connection are everything.

The #1 decision you will ever make | Create a life shaped by decisions you control, not conditions that you can’t

When you’re looking through the lens of depression, how do you see the world? How do you react to those around you? And how do you handle obstacles that come your way? What about when you’re in a state of peace? How do you act? How do you react? Do you sweat the small stuff, or do you just shake it off? Does adversity rattle you, or are you able to approach challenges with confidence and ease? The fact is that you will have a very different experience in life when you are in a peaceful state, rather than a state of suffering. Your thoughts, actions and reactions - these stem directly from where you find yourself mentally and emotionally. This is why Tony says that the most important decision you will ever make is to live in a beautiful state - even when life doesn’t go your way. Because ultimately, our lives aren’t shaped by our conditions. Our lives are shaped by our decisions. And you must decide where to direct your focus. An undirected mind operates naturally in survival mode, constantly identifying and magnifying potential threats to our well-being. But the result? A life filled with stress and anxiety. In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, you’ll learn how most people make unconscious decisions, based on habit and conditioning. You’ll see how most people believe that suffering is an inevitable part of life. Frustration, stress, sadness, loneliness - yes, these are emotions we may all encounter - but Tony shows us that we all have the power to step out of these suffering states, and cultivate a life of love, joy, gratitude, playfulness, growth and appreciation. Because life is too short to be mired in suffering. Make the decision to master your mind. Choose a beautiful state, and start living the life you were meant to.

Beat work-related stress – forever | Tony shows business owners how transform their most stressful thoughts into fuel for success

As a business owner, what is the most stressful thought you have? What keeps you up at night? Is it a fear of failing? The anxiety of the future? Worries about hiring, or firing? Every business owner will inevitably face daunting challenges that he or she must overcome. That’s just the nature of the beast. But the stressful thoughts – the worries that we conjure in our minds about the unknown – these are not only impacting your emotional state, they’re hindering your path forward. And it’s up to you to make the decision to take back control of your thoughts, adopt a stronger, more focused mindset, and step into the role you were meant for. In this episode of the Real Breakthrough Series, we’re taking you back to Business Mastery, where Tony is working with business owners who have given into their negative beliefs, allowing these thoughts to hinder their path to growth. Tony helps them understand that the challenge they must overcome is their own psychology. He shows them that these thoughts are ultimately just machinations of their greatest fears – and that they only have power if you believe them. But - if you are ready to step out of these limiting beliefs, then you must adopt the steadfast mindset and unshakeable state of a true leader. So that any negative thought that arises is immediately dismissed. And any challenge that comes your way is seen as an opportunity to grow.

Discover your subconscious patterns | Ask this one question and you’ll know why you do the things you do, says Tony

Whose love did you crave most growing up – your mother’s or your father’s? And who did you feel you had to be for that person? Answering this question will not only help you understand how your identity was shaped, you will start to see just why you do the things you do. You will learn why you are the way you are now. The patterns that you fall into and the standards that you hold for yourself will all start to make sense. Because underneath all of this live six fundamental human needs that you are constantly striving to meet. In this episode of the Real Breakthrough Series on the Tony Robbins Podcast we’re taking you back to Date With Destiny, where Tony is helping Akila overcome the subconscious boundaries that are holding her back from the life she desires. Tony begins by asking Akila that critical question: Whose love did you crave most as a child? Because every single one of us has developed a model of the world based on the source of love we craved most growing up. This is the what influences the way we think and the way we act. This is what impacts the way we filter information. And this is what forms the entire way in which we experience the world. Tony shows us that we all create certain rule structures to support our needs. And he shows us that by uncovering our top two needs, we can begin to gain more perspective on our lives. Because when we are able to take a more objective, enlightened look at ourselves, we are able to find the way to breakthrough and break free of what is holding us back.

Why love isn’t enough | Tony shows a couple how to build a lasting partnership through communication and self-awareness

We all encounter challenges in our relationships, some more serious than others, but it’s how we handle them that ultimately matters.For many of us, when we feel pain, we tend to blame our partners. We criticize, close up. We avoid them, ignore them. All to play a game of who’s wrong and who’s right. But when you truly love someone - it doesn’t matter who’s wrong or who’s right. In fact, blame only takes our power away, and excuses only cause us to continue hurting each other. Welcome back to the Tony Robbins Podcast. On today’s episode of the Real Breakthrough Series, we’re taking you back to Date With Destiny where Tony is working with Teresa and John, a couple fighting their way out of a painful past and trying to figure out a path towards a healthier, happier future. While Teresa and John have made substantial progress since dealing with infidelity, they still struggle when it comes to constructive communication. They slip back into old ways, making excuses for their behavior and shirking responsibility for their actions. But it’s clear they are still deeply in love, and are committed to finding a better way. Tony helps them see that if you’re having problems in your relationship, and feeling pain, it’s because you’re focused on yourself, not your partner. He helps them see that you can’t continue to focus on what you’re not getting, and what your partner’s not giving you. Because if you want to build an extraordinary relationship, you need to tear up the rules and start holding yourself 100% accountable for your experience.

Break from your painful past | Witness how one victim of unspeakable trauma turns her suffering into joy

Why do we have a tendency to hold on to the past? Why do we continue to let the most painful experiences in our lives not only influence, but control our future? And what would life look like if we were able to let go of the past, shed the stories that we carry with us and move forward in a way that is untethered to the pain? Welcome to the Tony Robbins Podcast. In this episode of the real breakthrough series, we’re diving into a particularly sensitive subject - letting go of past trauma. Some of you may have endured unspeakable trauma in your lives. But as horrific as these experiences were, you may continue to hold on to them, fervently at times. Because letting go can be terrifying. But holding on has profound consequences of its own. We continue to give the pain power. We keep cords of energy tied to the people that hurt us. We even let these terrible experiences become part of our identity. In this episode, you’re going to hear from JoLynn - a woman who endured tremendous trauma in her past. And for years, decades even, she allowed that pain to dictate her life. She lived in a story of hurt, and she suffered massively because of it. But by working with Tony, she was able to step outside of that pain and gain a new level of understanding and perspective. And in a moment, she broke through to the other side - where she was able to let go, find forgiveness and choose a life of love and appreciation.

Do you ever feel like a fraud? | Tony helps Dave shed the belief he's not good enough and claim what he is made for

What’s the biggest chokehold on your business? When a business is struggling, most business owners tend to believe that it’s because they don’t have the necessary skills to run a business, or the right strategy to help it grow. But 80% of the time, the chokehold on a business is actually the psychology of the business owner. Yes, the strategy, skills and tools are all critical components to creating real and sustainable growth. But knowledge alone is not power - it’s simply potential power. You have to be able to execute to make strides forward. And all too often, we are standing in our own way. In this episode, we’re taking you to Business Mastery, where you’ll hear Tony work with a business owner whose negative thoughts have been overshadowing his potential for greatness.

Payback for Venmo | Tony Robbins and Venmo co-founder on finding your own story and getting to “yes”

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast we’re continuing our Business Mastery Panelist series with an exclusive interview between Tony and Iqram Magdon-Ismail, the co-founder of the digital payment platform, Venmo. In case you’re not familiar with Venmo, the premise is simple: you connect the app to your checking account and you can send and receive payments to anyone with just a tap and a swipe of your smartphone. It’s the ideal solution for splitting bills and paying your friends back - especially for anyone who doesn’t like carrying around cash. Venmo makes exchanging money incredibly simple, and it takes the awkwardness out of asking someone to pay you back. Paying for everything from cab rides to dinners to rent and utilities is streamlined. Venmo was acquired by Braintree in 2012 for $26.2 million, which in turn sold to PayPal for $800 million. And now, Venmo processes more than $6.8 billion in payments per quarter. Yet as ubiquitous as Venmo is today, it wasn’t an easy path to success. Iqram and his co-founder Andrew Kortina endured countless obstacles in their early years, struggling to raise capital and almost closing their doors at one point. In this episode, Tony talks to Iqram about the evolution of Venmo, from idea to fruition to acquisition, and how they were able to persevere through the darkest periods. They discuss the importance of learning to embrace criticism, creating your company’s story, and using the no’s to refine your approach to find that pivotal yes.

Build a bigger business | Lively founder on finding (and filling) the gaps in a $13B industry

Last fall, eight winners of Shopify’s Build a Bigger Business competition were flown to Tony’s Fiji resort Namale for both group and one-on-one coaching sessions with him. One of the winners was an entrepreneur that Tony personally selected from the entrants – Michelle Cordeiro Grant: the founder of Lively, a brand that is fusing athleisure and lingerie to bring comfort and style to women’s intimates. Michelle began her career with Federated Merchandising Group, creating brands and product for one of the world's largest retailers. Grant instantly fell in love with the entire process from concept to customer, and realized that her passion was in supporting, creating and developing amazing brands and products. Grant spent the tenure of her career with the industry leaders – Federated, VF Corporation and Limited Brands/ Victoria's Secret. Her work at Federated focused on the development of private label brands and at VFC, Grant was responsible for launching global brands like Nautica Women’s Sportswear. Seeing the shift in the market towards e-commerce, Grant moved to Victoria’s Secret where she focused on merchandising and strategy for VS's digital arm. Once Grant realized she wanted to create her own brand, she spent a number of years at a thriving startup, Thrillist Media Group, overseeing their commerce division. By working for top retailers, traveling the globe to meet world class manufacturers and spending a couple years with an incredible startup, Grant learned the importance of creating a strong brand affinity, crafting a quality product and building a dynamic team. While working with Victoria's Secret, she learned that this $13B lingerie category, in the US alone, was dominated by this one brand, with one point of view. Grant was inspired to create a completely new experience for the category – one she coined Leisurée – and so LIVELY was born. In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, Michelle sits down with our host, Ana, to talk about her experience with Tony, and the key insights that she took from this session and put to work in her business.   We hear what it’s been like for Michelle to build the Lively brand. We learn how she has strategically leveraged social media, curated an extraordinary customer experience, and created company ethos that serves as their north star when it comes to their most important business decisions. We learn just how Michelle intends to spread her message of body positivity and community all while bringing her customers a brand that makes them look, feel and live confidently.

Are you part of the Captain Class? | The WSJ’s Sam Walker on the 7 core qualities of true leaders

What do the greatest leaders of all time have in common? You may think it comes down to a certain sense of charisma or some inhuman level of talent - because that’s what we’ve all been conditioned to think defines a leader. But superstars aren’t the same thing as super leaders. In fact, the greatest leaders often fly under the radar and are actually easy to miss. In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, you’ll be hearing from renowned leadership expert and bestselling author, Sam Walker. A former reporter, sports columnist and sports editor, Sam founded The Wall Street Journal’s prizewinning daily sports coverage. And most recently, helped launch the Journal’s leadership column. He is the author of Fantasyland, a bestselling account of his time in Tout Wars, America’s top fantasy-baseball expert competition (of which he is a two-time champion). And in his latest book – The Captain Class – Sam profiles the greatest teams in history and identifies the secret sauce that drove these unconventional men and women to achieve massive success.   Sam and our host, Ana Yoerg, do a deep dive into the behavioral and psychological traits of these individuals and how they have been the driving force behind some of the most legendary teams in history. They discuss the myths about leadership – and how to really identify and cultivate the leaders you see in your own organization. Because it isn’t always obvious. In fact, it rarely is. And as Sam reveals, once you do find these individuals, you need to understand how to effectively partner with them so that they assume a more autonomous role that can ultimately lead the entire team to success.

It matters how you get there | Lyft co-founder John Zimmer on reinventing the transportation experience

In this episode, we are continuing our Inside Business Mastery series with an exclusive interview between Tony and John Zimmer: the co-founder and president of the massively popular ride-sharing service Lyft. 2017 was a banner year for Lyft. The San Francisco-based company expanded its coverage to 95% of the United States. And the number of rides per year reached a staggering 375.5 million, which is particularly impressive when you consider that the number was just 162.5 million in 2015. Part of that explosive growth can credited towards gaining more market share from its biggest competitor. When customers saw Lyft’s values-first, passion over profits motives, many opted out of the dominant ride-sharing platform to start supporting the company with a social purpose. But for Zimmer, it’s not about unseating the competition. It’s about becoming a viable alternative to your own car, and ultimately, reinventing the entire transportation landscape. Tony and John dive into John’s roots in the hospitality industry, the big problem with the existing transportation infrastructure, and how he’s on a mission to create a better service for everyone. Because disrupting the transportation industry is just the beginning - Lyft is set to pave a new path forward when it comes to how we see our vehicles, how we share rides, and how we can ultimately create a new network of transportation that is all about efficiency.
