The story from Genesis of Joseph and his eleven brothers is what Tolstoy called "the most beautiful story in the world." It's a tale of true forgiveness, and one of finding the higher meaning in difficult or even tragic life events.
In this episode, you'll hear Sage Robbins interview Stephen Mitchell, author of "Joseph and The Way of Forgiveness,” Mitchell's reimagination of the classic Biblical story. The two friends discuss the deep relevance of its core message still today, and the application of the inquiry work of Mitchell’s wife, Byron Katie, as a path to forgiveness in our own lives. With a special introduction by Tony Robbins.
"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.

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.

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.
