Tony and Sage Robbins are excited to share this practical and instructive excerpt from their recent Inner Circle members event as they guide a volunteer through inquiry and illustrate: OUR QUESTIONS are THE ANSWER.

Tony and Sage address the source of our human suffering -- the mind’s repetitive thoughts and limiting beliefs -- that shape our emotions and drive our behavior. They discuss “The Work” of their dear friend, Byron Katie, renowned author, and teacher whose transformative method of inquiry has inspired countless individuals worldwide to achieve greater self-awareness and emotional freedom.

The purpose of this unique exercise is to demonstrate how questioning thoughts and beliefs leads to inner freedom and deeper connections to life and the people around us. In this video, watch Tony and Sage explain what they do and how they each meet their own thoughts and limiting beliefs with inquisitive curiosity and a genuine desire and willingness to see themselves.

When we choose to live as if our thoughts and beliefs are just that (and not actually absolute truths), we enter the self-inquiry process that leads to broader perspective, greater self-awareness, emotional resilience, and inner liberation.

Through four impossibly simple yet powerfully profound questions, The Work of Byron Katie helps disrupt the painful thoughts we’re thinking and believing ultimately fostering our inner freedom and a more fulfilling life. In other words, our most powerful answers can come from simply asking ourselves a few questions!

The four simple questions of 'The Work' will help you uncover truths about yourself and the world around you. Please enjoy this exclusive clip from the Tony Robbins Inner Circle!

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.

Mo's commitment to spreading happiness has touched millions of lives.  He continues to inspire people from all walks of life to embrace happiness as a fundamental choice, as well as empower them to engineer their own paths to fulfillment.

Tony and Sage Robbins are excited to share this special presentation from a 2022 private event with their Platinum Partners in Mexico. Let Mo Gawdat’s poignant insights help you create your own happiness journey today!

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. Please enjoy!

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!

In this special 3-PART MASTERCLASS, we drop you inside a Tony Robbins Business Mastery seminar to learn HOW TO BUILD A BRAND, SHOWCASE YOUR X FACTOR, and BRING YOUR UNIQUE PRODUCT or SERVICE to a COMPETITIVE MARKET.

In PART TWO, you'll hear Tony Robbins in a one-on-one interview with DAN CATHY, the dynamic Chairman of Chick-fil-A, Inc., the iconic family-owned fast food chain specializing in chicken sandwiches.

Under Dan’s leadership, Chick-fil-A has become the 3rd largest fast food chain in America, behind McDonald’s and Starbucks. Since 2013, the company has expanded to over 2,600 restaurants in 47 states and the District of Columbia, as well as new ventures into the Asian market. However, it’s Dan's unwavering commitment to customer service that has been the real key element to the company's immense success. With an emphasis on family and community, and a tireless dedication to maintaining a positive workplace culture, Chick-fil-A is more than just a fast food dining experience – it’s a model for how businesses should inspire their employees and treat their customers.

*Fun fact: Chick-fil-A has been closed on Sundays since 1946. While it’s estimated the chain loses over $1 billion in potential yearly revenue, the family continues to honor this tradition – which encourages employees to rest, spend time with family and worship (if they choose).

In PART TWO, you'll hear Tony Robbins in a one-on-one interview with CHIP WILSON, the Canadian entrepreneur and philanthropist who is best known for founding the athletic apparel company Lululemon Athletica.

Wilson is widely regarded as one of the most successful and influential entrepreneurs in the apparel industry. After working in the ski industry for several years, Wilson first founded Westbeach Snowboard in 1979, which eventually became one of the largest snowboarding apparel companies in the world.

In this special 3-PART MASTERCLASS, we drop you inside a Tony Robbins Business Mastery seminar to learn HOW TO BUILD A BRAND, SHOWCASE YOUR X FACTOR, and BRING YOUR UNIQUE PRODUCT or SERVICE to a COMPETITIVE MARKET.

In PART ONE, you'll hear Tony Robbins in a one-on-one interview with GAIL BECKER, Founder and CEO of CAULIPOWER, a wildly successful brand that has revolutionized the frozen food market by introducing healthier and innovative alternatives.  And the best part – Gail didn’t launch this company until the age of 52.

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.

This intimate episode of The Tony Robbins Podcast was recorded at home in February of 2023 with Tony Robbins, his wife, Sage Robbins, and Mary B., friend and surrogate of their child. 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. He riffs on why people become jaded and pessimistic after the loss of love, pain, past references, and cultural conditioning and implores the audience to keep their hearts open to the depths of the human heart we all crave. 

Tony and Sage share “the explosion of love” that has come through their 23 years of marriage and starting a family together.

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!

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.

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.

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.

In this lively and inspiring conversation with Tony Robbins, Barton shares how his own perseverance made the impossible possible, and reveals how personal limitations can in fact be your superpower.

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. You will understand how cycles of crisis catalyze massive economic, cultural, political, and institutional disruption – and how as a society, we solve problems we never thought we could before. 

No storm lasts forever, and this too shall pass. Listen to this episode for Neil’s predictions on how much longer this crisis period will last and what we can look forward to in our beautiful, shared future.

[12:50] Knife-age division vs. zones of transition (EX. X-ennials) 

[13:45] History shapes generations, but (later on) generations shape history  

[16:09] The cyclical nature of crises and how they spur “a total remake” 

[18:29] Institutions we rely on today were created post-WWII 

[20:01] Why do we wait until there is a crisis to solve problems? 

[22:10] 1780s economic depression: We created the Constitution in our darkest hour  

[24:18] What comes next: The High, collective, feeling more than the sum of our parts 

[26:38] The Awakening releases the individual  

[27:57] Gen X was left alone and raised themselves = pragmatism & cynicism

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


[0:10] Introduction

[1:07] What does it mean to Tony to be a father?

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.

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.

5 years ago, Tony Robbins gave behind the scenes access of his annual life changing event, Date With Destiny to Netflix and filmmaker Joe Berlinger, and the movie I Am Not Your Guru was born. Today, Tony and his wife Sage sit down with Joe and discuss how the film came to be, as well as check in with some of the people highlighted in the documentary and what their life looks like today, years after this transformative event. If interested in attending yourself, visit

Filmmaker Joe Berlinger is known for making mostly dark documentaries about rock singers & serial killers. However, when Joe attended Tony Robbins’ Date With Destiny event and moved from the dark to the light in his own life, he knew he had to make a movie about this transformative event. After months and months of convincing Tony and Sage to say yes, he agreed to their terms of not letting his crew get in the way of the event or experience of the people in the room in any way, and  I Am Not Your Guru was born. 

As we celebrate the 5th anniversary of this ground-breaking film, Joe sits down with Tony and Sage to share moving stories, behind the scenes anecdotes and life updates from several people followed in the documentary. This is a candid conversation you don’t want to miss.

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.
