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 DWDVirtual.com

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.

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.

[07:44] Karma is how to move from an unconscious to a conscious existence.

[21:13] Large part of karma being created unconsciously

[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

Dr. Mark Hyman joins us to discuss his new book, The Pegan Diet: 21 Practical Principles for Reclaiming Your Health in a Nutritionally Confusing World. Dr. Mark Hyman is a practicing family physician, a thirteen-time New York Times best-selling author, Board President for Clinical Affairs for the Institute for Functional Medicine, and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, educator, and advocate in the field of Functional Medicine. He noticed that Paleo and Vegan diets are both plant rich diets that focus on eating good fats and whole, unprocessed foods. The only difference is where they get their protein. In combining the best of both worlds, The Pegan Diet cuts through the noise so you can biohack your biology and save the planet in the process through regenerative agriculture, eating the rainbow, and the 75% rule.

Tony has had the privilege of working with some of the most amazing athletes in history. Today he sits down ring-side with 4-time Heavyweight world champion Evander Holyfield. In this exclusive interview, Holyfield talks about what it was like growing up, his peak career moments, the notorious fight with Mike Tyson, and the possibility of stepping back into the ring all these years later. Tony guides Holyfield through an epic retelling and reveal of what it means to be a part of a comeback story and how boxing is so much more than just a physical battle. It’s about marrying the physical body, psychology, spirit, and soul for the ultimate combination of skills.

Holyfield recounts the moment that changed his life at The Boys Club, the three best pieces of advice his mother gave him that guide him through his life, and what he learned from losing almost half a billion dollars. At 58 years old, Holyfield is still training as hard as ever, and hoping for a third match up against Tyson to finish out their trilogy. In the video version of this interview, Holyfield invites Tony into his personal training ring for some punching practice. To see this extended interview, check out our YouTube page.

Welcome to today’s bonus episode. In the previous episode, The Future of Food, Energy and Space, you heard Tony introduce a group of groundbreaking entrepreneurs who are turning the status quo upside down for how we operate as humans. They shared what amazing technology we have to look forward to, not tomorrow, but today. This is technology that will improve the lives of people all over the world and for generations to come. 

Here Tony continues the conversation with Bill, Jason, Mikhail, and Dakin, but with a focus on the business side to bettering the lives of people everywhere. Bill speaks to his desire to do for energy what Elon Musk did for cars. Jason talks about the power of distribution, comparing Netflix to the food market. And Mikhail opens our eyes to the newest space race and how being business-minded with technology produces incredible results. 

In this episode Tony calls each of us to be an owner, not just a consumer. Entrepreneurship and investing is something he’s worked throughout his career to make accessible for all people. Enjoy this exciting episode and discover how you can get involved.

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

Dec 29, 2020

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.

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.”

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. 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.

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.

“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)

“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. Jakes (Founder, The Potter’s House), Daryl Davis (R&B Musician and activist), Scott Shepherd (Reformed KKK leader), Dr. Michael Beckwith (Founder, Agape International Spiritual Center)

On March 11, 2020, people all over the world were thrust into a new reality when the coronavirus was declared a global pandemic. It was as if the globe had ground to a halt as businesses closed, schools shuttered, and stay-at-home orders emptied city streets. Thousands of lives have been lost; all lives have been changed. 

Over the past two months, despite these uncertain and unprecedented circumstances, there have been shining examples of goodness and triumphs of the human spirit solidifying the fact that we as a species are both adaptable and resilient. Scientists around the globe have aligned their focus to find solutions to this challenge of historic proportions, and groundbreaking discoveries have been made. Everyday, we continue to make progress in quelling the impact of this virus and protecting our loved ones at risk. 

Unfortunately, much of the COVID-19 news comes to us clouded by the business of mass media which built momentum selling us a narrative of fear. 

In this episode, Tony goes on a journey to uncover the truth about coronavirus with a 7-person panel of highly qualified researchers, an experienced epidemiologist, a Nobel Laureate, and M.D.s testing and treating patients on the frontlines. Together, they reveal the evidence-based research that has come to light and the emerging facts that you’re not hearing in the headlines that are absolutely crucial in shaping decisions about how to move forward. 

This is one of the most important interviews that Tony has conducted in his 40+ year career. It reminds us to stand guard at the door of our mind, practice discernment when determining trustworthy sources, and think critically for ourselves in order to stay flexible and maintain the ability to pivot in light of new information – especially when lives depend on it.

In part 2 of this special edition episode, Tony – along with his friend Dr. Peter Diamandis, the Harvard Medical School trained M.D. and executive founder of Singularity University – explore the present and future of COVID-19. 

If you haven’t heard Part 1, be sure to listen to it, as Dr. Bob Hariri joined the conversation to provide additional context and clarification of the COVID-19 numbers we’re seeing around the clock in the news.

Today, Tony and Peter speak with Mei Mei Hu and Lou Reese, Co-CEOs of United Biomedical, a company that is now offering an affordable and accurate diagnostic test for COVID-19 through its subsidiary, COVAXX

Their antibody test is different from others, as it can detect not only if you currently have the virus, but also it signals if you’ve ever had the virus, which is crucial in determining the true rate of mortality associated with COVID-19 – and whether people are immune and therefore able to stop isolating, and go back to work. 

Lou and Mei Mei’s team at COVAXX is also working on a breakthrough alternative option to a traditional vaccine for coronavirus, which you’ll hear discussed in the last half of the episode.

There’s a lot that’s unknown in this economic climate. Fear and panic are taking over, and it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel – especially for small business owners, who are being faced with many tough decisions. 

But instead of letting fear consume you, now is the time to draw upon your conviction and leadership – to draw upon your training and preparation. When this is over, there will be those who squandered it, and there will be those who seized the opportunity present in this challenge – who stepped up with creativity and innovation, seeking to add as much value as possible to their clients. 

In this episode, we are bringing you interviews from Tony’s top business partners and speakers from his Business Mastery event, who will be sharing their advice on how small business owners can not just survive in this climate, but thrive – now and in the future.

You’ll also hear from Tony on how you, as a leader, can manage your mindset and create momentum in your business – so when this comes to an end – which it will – your business succeeds like never before.

In these times of uncertainty, we need to think critically for ourselves. If we don’t, we’re letting someone else dictate our focus. As Tony likes to quote his mentor, Jim Rohn, we need to STAND GUARD at the door of our own minds. 

Whatever information you're feeding your mind on a daily basis and you focus upon consistently, you're going to experience as being what life is really about – and if we don't discipline our fears and control our focus, the world will gladly do it for us. It’s your choice what to focus on.

In this episode, we are bringing you exclusive content from Tony, recorded years ago as part of his PowerTalk series. And while this is from some time ago, his message is timeless – and extremely relevant in times like these.

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.
