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.”
