m. and it’s just one of those days where I haven’t felt like my brain has been connected to the rest of my body and I haven’t really done anything and so I start and I’m on booked at like a very crunch booked online and for whatever reason words just are not really very intelligible on the page and that led me to want to ask you I guess a lot of my fans have asked this you know does Tony have bad days and if you do find yourself in a situation like this right where you’ve tried the priming for whatever reasons like the mid afternoon and you’re like wow like I really don’t think I’ve actually gotten much done today if that happens what what what do you do what is the internal monologue or the self talk I know that trying to think my way through it’s not going to do squat of course I have those days at those times I don’t days like that a pretty rare have a day like that but if I feel that happening and I catch myself up in a few hours then I I do something radical with my body because the body will change the mind the fastest and you’re never you have to find that sense of energy and passion and intensity back inside yourself that you know what makes you go and what I would do if it was my situation I’d immediately go I either do something really hot or really cold those two extremes or go for a run or go lift you know anything that’s going to pump the blood through me but my first run B jump in that freezing ass water that I always have here buy or jump in a cryotherapy because I got to tell you you know you drop your temperature down to minus 220 every night and you will you’ll have a whole new mental state that’s for sure and so but but really truly it’s getting physical in some intense dramatic way that shifts the physiology and that’s what’s going to shift your mind and then the creativity comes and once I’ve made that shift then I’d focus on you know coming back to not the deadline but to my my reasons the why right I know you do as well just what what am I doing this for what get reassociate Eduardo anything maybe read but I won’t write or speak about something I’m not totally passionate about so if I’m not feeling it cuz my body is just thrashed you know I’ve been burning the candle at both ends with just common that’s when I’ve got to do something physical to shift it to make that happen but when I do those two things that usually flows on my bed it would be for you to remember years ago I worked with John Denver popped in my head just now um and he was stuck in every way couldn’t write a damned thing and he was very very frustrated and I just took him through three of his greatest songs they’d ever done and as he walked through songs that I said I want you to describe to me the moments they were coming through you and all three of his examples he was either skiing or he gone a run or done something and then boom you know he was in this state where he was in the flow state again and I remember I did that for him and I start doing it for myself ever since that time hmm and you trout do you still travel with a small trampoline yes I don’t travel with it but I have you know I have it how many of goodies that go that go and place to place yeah and how do you use that how do you typically use I just use it I I do it because if you know most people know you have more you know you know your limp in your body is four times more limp than there is blood the limp is the detoxification system of your body when you’re feeling tired or exhausted or lethargic you know outside of sleep and hydration and then food you know it’s really making sure that limp system is moving so I jump on that thing for 10-12 minutes first thing in the morning and get a limp moving right especially if I don’t have the cold nearby if I can’t you know if I don’t have a cold plunge or something I’m in hotel then the my next piece is to lymph aside for 12 minutes and it’s just amazing you know you get all that lactic acid out of your body moving and you feel like a different person so you mentioned John Denver and of course I’ve seen your documentary which is quite the buzz at the moment and what we’re going to talk a lot more about that I wanted to ask and a few fans also asked about this if you if you think back is there a particular intervention or that that is particularly or was particularly difficult and what made it difficult and how did you handle it oh my gosh shouldn’t so many pretty difficult ones were there characteristics that make particular interventions difficult I remember one in particularly those in flashes in my mind but I’ve I’ve ever shared this with you we’ve talked a few times but I had I was it was a really big deal was my date with destiny it was the first time I brought any reporters in to see this this is gosh 20 years ago maybe and you know I always read I think you know I read people do 10 to 20 pages homework I read it all and now it takes you know a couple weeks to read it all I and I don’t remember his name but that informations in me so I’m ready and I’ve done this and Diane Sawyer was coming with her crew to kind of just do a brief filming and show all these incredible CEO types that were changing their lives and redesigning their destiny in the middle of this experience I was on day one this woman kept trying to get my attention I felt that I you know I don’t reward that right now I’m happy to do it if it’s not for attention that’s for help but this woman it was clear and so I ignore ignored it and all since she just exploded and night and started saying but I can’t Liana kid she started she had her hand like she was stabbing at people and people were like running for her going totally berserk and then I saw who she was I saw the dynamic of what was going on and instantly I realized who she was she was a woman who had 50 she was one of the first people as multiple personality disorders MPD’s that they call them my the first diagnosed ones and they first came up with the title of this and she had been institutionalized and her story was so brutal because she actually her father have been sexually abusing her for a good portion of her life and she finally told somebody and he had her institutionalized people that I guess were his friends and they they’re the doctor they’re actually sexually abused her he would drug her and sexually abused her so you can only imagine going inside your head where there’s pain no matter what you’re out of control we all have to find a way to survive you have to find a way to meet our fundamental needs for certainty for variety for God’s sakes when you’re being trapped for feeling like you have some significant control over your life for the feeling of connection or love or growth or contribution these are human needs that have to be found in our life for us to feel like we can function so if we can’t find them good ways we’ll find them in bad ways in her way was to just change personalities that’s one way to get out of pain if you’re being viciously attacked and you’re out of control try to become someone else and she kept doing it and doing it long story short and um she’s screaming doing this people are people freaking out all of a sudden she starts talking like a little girl and like an old man and I mean it looked like something out of Exorcist and the middle of all this I’d let her just go and go and go and I found he just said to her I said you know I understand you’re in a lot of pain and I just want you to know that I know who you are and I know what you’ve been through and then I told the room the story of what she pre was she stood that with a mouth opening and just gaped open and I said so I want you to know that I know you believe you’re all these personalities but I said there’s probably a reason you’re here and I said I think the reason you’re here is because you know changing personalities was a brilliant solution for you to survive in those situations and you had to keep more and more personalities but you kept doing it so much now you’re out of the institution but you’re still living in pain and I said the problem is I said you must be here because it’s some level you know oh this isn’t working because no one can love someone when they don’t know who they’re gonna be next and it just grabbed her I found her internal need and then as I started working with her she would jump back she wanted control she would try to do something and she’s I’m gonna pee on his chair and his you pee on that chair I said I’ll slap you across this room and you know she wasn’t ready for that piece I can say not gonna do it I’m just using the shock factor I said I’m not some stupid psychiatrist you can play these games with I said I know who the fuck you are and you know who you are deep inside and I said all this stuff was brilliant brilliant adaptation helped you survive but now it’s separating you from everyone it’s causing you to feel the deepest pain and I said I think it’s brilliant you have so many personalities children have lots of personnel you say you know I’m Superman no I’m Batman I’m Superman and Batman you can do all that stuff in your kid right so when you’re an adult you say that shit people want to walk you up I said see you’re probably great with I said you’re probably great with children and she looked at me at you cuz I am great with children and you just watch you going in and out so anyway you know an hour and a half process I’m trying to tell you in two minutes but the bottom line in the end is the way I’ve finally kicked her over the edge well she goes yeah but I you know she thought I was one of the first MPD’s I said I know and they’re so goddamn common now our thing because I knew I knew her biggest need was to be significant she was defeating all the psychiatrist she wanted to be the significant drive need to be met more than any other drive for her on the surface what she needed more was love so I said to her I used the significance Drive I said yeah it’s so common I mean MPD’s are a dime a dozen there’s nothing unique about them at all you just see your face just drop take it all right and then I turned around and I said but you know and the cameras are rolling by the way so what I’m not telling you is inside my gut when this first starts him like are you kidding me this woman is splitting personalities and being a freak in the middle of them filming here they’re gonna like this is who comes the turnaround stunt cars I got the room full of like CEOs you know Marc Benioff you know from Salesforce and you know billionaires and this woman is like taking away my entire ability to reach people is what ran through my head but I let go that just worked on her but at the end the cameras are still rolling and I said look they’re a dime a dozen but I said you know I don’t think there’s ever been anyone in history that’s ever had 52 personalities or even two and who integrated in a matter of two minutes or less on national television but I said I don’t think you’re capable of that it was just the perfect double bind and she went through all these conversions in her face and a long story short she transformed and then all I did for the next four days was capture and show her and I said listen you know anyone can forget things you certainly we’ve all had the skill of forgetting our keys where you go from place to place the place and then you find place you’ve been looking for the fifth time through I said forgetting can also be a skill and then I just helped her along the way to does let go of all those personalities and the beauty of it the reason I think it was powerful was you know they didn’t do that story for a year because they wanted to see what happened with her and a year later she was still clear and when Diane Sawyer interviewed her psychiatry said it’s just a miracle I can’t explain it just a miracle because you never split again so it would be a fairly dramatic example but you know I’ve gotten a call as you know and you know President Clinton little tonight saying they’re going to peach me in the morning what should I do I’ve got a chance to work the Princess Diana dal / clarify what you will really want to do to make for the biggest decisions in her life and and British history I’ve been I’ve had a ticket history of had the chance to be with mr.
Gorbachev and and really hear what end of the Cold War directly and then sit down with him and President Bush senior at that time and meteor on and Mac Thatcher and and sit in like a fly on the wall in those conversations there’s there’s been some amazing times in this life that I’ve been privileged to witness and be a part of and sometimes influence I view you as an expert question asker a crafter of questions as a way of not manipulating it’s not the right word but changing thought right changing thought patterns and if you could ask say all of the past podcast guests that I have had one question what would that would that question be and it’s enough first I would never ask one question you know somebody counted one time I was in an event and there’s this woman who was suicidal and someone counted I asked a hundred and sixty-seven questions before I ever said anything of that one presence of that one person right and she was a person that was completely shut out suicidal non-responsive so I would never ask one question but the line of questioning would depend the person but I’m always fascinated by is what is the drive that makes someone the best of who they are what is the uncovering what is the piece that triggers that and I usually ask people a question like you know whose love did you crave the most growing up your mother your father I’m sure you loved them both the most but whose love did you create the most – what whose love did you crave the most oh you’re asking me yeah probably my dad I would say I mean my yeah I would say so I had a very deep relationship with my mom and that was I was I felt close to my dad in a lot of ways but it was a different relationship yeah who did you have to be for your father the other first gut reaction without even thinking just no filters I had to be I had to be that’s a good question and it’s pretty rare that I get stumped on my own podcast but that’s good because this is deep and you’re unconscious because the reason I’m asking this question and I’ll give you a moment or two to think is what controls our life is our model of the world so our model the world as we all has to have a set of beliefs a set of values a set of rules how you should be how I should be how life should be and of course life doesn’t always match that which is where people get stressed out and thinking that all their preferences should be met but if they understand the driving force of your whole life comes because when your first born you’re wide open you can be anything a child can do anything you can you can laugh you can cry you can scream you could throw stuff you go the bathroom of your pants try that when you’re 40 see if it works so the whole thing changes because you learn from the source of love you crave the most from both sources love you learn how you need to be and you learn it by what they tell you or what they don’t tell you what you hear Utley make up in your mind based upon what you witness so just tell me the first gut response first got responses for my father I needed to be I have his respect yeah I have his love I think tempers love in his respect I mean I the first thing that comes to mind is maybe no B D n’t is not the right adjective but the accepting of whatever his instructions were effectively uh and uh as you know of me also he said I would never ask one question well I’m pretty prone to asking barrage of questions and I felt like that created a lot of that created a lot of friction III where I wanted to ask why a thousand times in a row before I was that wasn’t it and that wasn’t acceptable Oh why’d you accept what he said yeah I would I would say yeah frequent sources of conflict interesting yeah interesting and what else did you have to be about besides you had to accept his views so to some extent or not question it or not ask too many questions else did you have to be what are let me ask let me flip this around I’m buying myself some time what are what how do you dissect let me ask about your mom let me ask that your mom I say who did you to be for your mom I didn’t I didn’t feel like I needed to be anyone for my mom she was very my mom my mom is very good at exposing me to many different things we didn’t have a lot of money but she would expose us to whether it was particular books or say going to the beach and gathering black sand with magnets whatever it might be she would expose us to a lot of different stimuli and then if we became passionate about something she would to the extent that she could you know support that and so I felt like it was very my marching to my own drummer was perfectly acceptable and wherever I ended up as long as I was happy was was was was a perfectly fine so destiny so to speak so I never felt like I had to be any anyone in particular for my mom I don’t think which is also why which is also why you didn’t crave for love you see that we crave the love that we feel like we didn’t get as much of and it affects our unconscious so your pathway of your life of experimentation and feeling like it’s not only something that is good it’s something that could be great it sounds like it started with those experiences with your mother your experiences of anxiety wherever you would feel them would come from the experiences with your father because you couldn’t win yeah yeah yeah no I do so both of those pieces are inside you today are they not yeah I would say so I mean certainly yeah how could they not be right I mean yeah and so what happens is if we understand where those sources are we can reclaim certain aspects that’s a little deeper longer conversation but it’s like finding the pieces with your father finding in a different experience a different set of memories even of your father that there may be deep in your unconscious that have been pushed away by the times that and you it’s like very often when we have an experience where we feel constricted in some way like we’re not able to please the person we love at the highest level there’s a tension that grabs in our body almost like a muscle walking up and then what happens after that trauma or that frustration or whatever you want to call it that intensity that happens in our nervous system is we don’t let it go and solve often times it just stays with us and it can stay with us 20-30 years later we don’t even know why we’re feeling these feelings and we’re trying to attack it from a million ways often you can reclaim and heal that by finding the memory before that a much earlier memory where perhaps your father was maybe never was but where you felt an expression of love that was not tied to behaving in a certain way where you could actually feel that remember it and there’s a liberation that occurs and we find that so I’m interested in knowing what drives people because it helps you understand who they are and where it came from it helps you understand their strengths and their weaknesses so you can help them but I’m also interested in helping people to heal those pieces that have come that where a person has adapted so much they’ve overused a part of themselves like their I had to be in my case it was my mother’s love that I craved I had four fathers so I didn’t really crave them I didn’t they weren’t around long enough right well my mother’s love and pleasing her was not an easy task and she would beat the shit out of you if she didn’t do it I mean I love her to death though I’m grateful I am the man I am because I learned so much how to adapt and I don’t want people to experience suffering like I experienced so huge a part of who I am came from my mom I’m not dissing her in any way but I had to go back and reclaim certain aspects of my life to have some real freedom and myself and knowing where that came from was very helpful well just as a side note also I completely agree and I think that this is more of just an observation that you need feel free to respond to but you don’t have to which is I do have those memories of sort of deep bonding with my dad at a very young age that didn’t things that weren’t sort of predicated on any type of any of the things that we just discussed and I’ve tried very hard in the last few years also with a lot of the the work that I’ve done in the world of cinema theaters and psychedelics and so on as a way of facilitating some of this very early reintegration and just self-examination and it’s actually I’ve never been closer to my dad now ah that’s beautiful and just came back from a trip to Paris with both my parents and it’s so there’s been a lot of growth as a result of looking at you know trying to ask myself variants of some of these questions that you’re posing um well you know not just so people are clear I’m not big focused on your past but this specific element of who did you need to be and who did you not need to be like when you look at people that you really like a lot if you have tremendous passion or appreciation for respect for and variably it’s because you see in them something that’s actually in you but you’ve decide with it because the source of love in your life that you were trying to please or prove to did not necessarily reinforce that form of yourself so you dis identify this is not me I’m the person I need to be from my mother or my father or whoever the case may be so it’s really useful from that standpoint so that you can begin to enrich and expand your life and it sounds like you’ve used psychedelics as a way to kind of go back there and get me done obviously that way can also be done in very simple direct ways through post I kind of hypnotic patterns that can be done over a course of an hour or two I do those in many different events including David esting let’s talk about investments for a second but in a very broad in a very broad sense so if you had to think of the best or most worthwhile investment you’ve made and what I mean by that is investment of money time energy and I’ll give you an example just because it might clarify the question so Amelia Boone who’s the world’s most successful female obstacle course racer four-time world champion for her it was her first $450 which of which was a huge financial stretch at the time for her first world’s toughest motor competition which she ended up winning and it took her on this completely different life trajectory right yes does anything come to mind for you probably the first one was going to a gym realm seminar I think I’ve shared with you I had I was working for this man helping him move I was 17 I was in high school and I was just trying to earn extra money and my family had talked about my father talked about this guy had been such a loser before and then I had been so successful and so you know when you’re 17 I told the guy said you know my dad’s it used to be such a loser now you’re so successful how come what did you do you didn’t like you didn’t like that response at first but he told me on to the seminar by this man named Jim Rohn what’s a seminar and this man gets up and shares with you the best of what he’s learned over you know 20 30 years of his life and an evening and saves you all those years and I said Wow any I said you know is this happening soon he said yeah I told me when I said can you get me in he said yeah and he just didn’t say any up guys have a will you you said no it’s like why not you said could you want value it if you don’t invest in it I’d so how much is it he said $35 for three hours there’s a $35 for three hours I make $40 a week as a janitor I’m going ice cause it that’s a week’s pay he said well then just go learn on your own experience and waste ten or twenty or thirty years of your life and I said it’s up to you but he said I’m not paying for it I’m not even though I could get yet I’m not going to you decide and I wrestled for a week with that decision because it seemed like such a giant decision but you know I look back on it now on most important decisions of my life because that night stimulated me Jim Rohn became a model of what was possible to me of what I could help people out long-term I mean I had no direction or vision on you know if such a thing as a seminar an event like that occurred it all came out of that initial conversation so damn good $35 even though it seemed like all the money I’d ever see in the world yeah it’s been you know you know and when I was interviewing these people by the way for the money most of the game you never did 50 of the smartest financial people on the face of the earth right all these guys are self-made none of them from the lucky sperm Club and every single one of them as you dug in with them had different things asked them about their best investment and so forth you know guys like Warren Buffett said his best investment was going to Dale Carnegie told me he said you know it’s what you do it’s it’s investing yourself is the most important investment you’ll ever make in your life there’s no financial investment that all of our magic because if needed or skill or ability more insight or capacity he said that’s what’s going to really provide economic Beata for you because it’s those skill sets that really make that happen so I found that most people there’s different types of investments where it’s got to start with this your own development you’ve done your whole life I’m working on it I’m working on it and I’m still a collector of quotes I am sure them in Evernote and what surprised me is how many of them are Mis attributed to people that actually originate with Jim Rohn it’s been amazing I remember I was I was at a gym not long ago a few weeks ago and there was a t-shirt that this gym had made which said don’t don’t wish it were easier make yourself better and I think that actually goes back a number if people pointed out to Jim Rohn in some ways you wish you were better exactly do you have any quotes that you live your life by or anyone any particular Maxim’s I got my gosh is so many but I mean I think the core construct of my life is the decisions it your decisions not your conditions that shape your life and so it’s in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped so you want to choose really well alright you know you’d make a different decision ever I tell people as a think of a last 10 20 years your life think it’s there been a decision that if you made a different decision your life would be completely different today better worse I don’t know but completely different everybody can relate to it so I think most of us forget the power of decision that you know you don’t like your job change it you don’t like your relationship change it you know start by changing yourself because you just change people you’re gonna you get the same problems you’re carrying with you right you know you don’t like your income change it and all of us have that capacity but it really comes down to making decisions and most people they don’t make enough decisions decision taking is like a muscle the more you make them the stronger you get and if all you make are the easy decisions you know any idiot can do that the most successful leaders are the ones that have to make decisions where they’re likely maybe going to be wrong but they figure out you know I got to make the decision quicker so if I’m wrong I can find out quicker and make a better decision change to the next thing and make it go so if they’re my life is about really how can I help people to change the structure of what creates decisions and what filters that is our beliefs our values our rules and our emotions of it’s because that shapes at all so I’m constantly looking for where is the tip point that can change the quality of this person’s life often we’ve made decisions 5 10 20 years ago that still affect us today sometimes those decisions were made as a child about life about yourself about what you believe about men or women or people a relationship or finance or anything and if beliefs create and beliefs destroy either you know there’s no such thing as a belief that doesn’t have a consequence the only question is there’s an uplifting consequence or degrading consequence and so I’m huge on finding what those are eliminating the ones that are keeping people from making the decisions that move them forward and making that happen so I love quotes but it’s really more the hunt for excellence it’s the hunt for what’s outstanding it’s the hunt just like you it’s one things I love you so much and respect you so much is I feel like we’re different creatures but we’ve got some of the same core stuff in us which is we want to understand the truth and when I bring the truth to people and we want to find that truth in all it’s beautiful forms in different forms so people have a variety of ways of creating the quality of life they desire and they deserve and we’re both kind of experimenters in that area so to me that’s that’s what it’s about more than the quotes themselves love quotes love anything it’s inspiring them touched by them all but in the end information has got to be converted knowledge has got to be converted to action or it’s worthless you know it’s your own used to say as my teacher you say you know let your you know you let your learning lead to knowledge you become a fool if you learnt you learning lead to action you become wealthy his idea of wealthy was not just money it was really rich mentally emotionally spiritually and financially of course and I really have lived by that what is some of the looking at the flip side what is some of the worst advice that you see or hear being dispensed often in say the self-improvement world or self-development world it could be it could be in any sphere but I’m just wondering if if any particularly common yet bad advice comes to mind that you think is my gosh there’s so much for a big from my been to the start I tell you I’d say you know financially just because I finished you four years of obsession on on that subject you know I’m doing money match to the game and getting that out to people and I’m still so obsessed by it you know we live in a culture that you know most people allow financial quote professionals you know 95% of which in the marketplace they call them wealth managers there’s 300 names but 95% of people you’re talking about as a broker and it might be a really nice person but the advice they’re going to give you is based on what the house has taught them to sell and the house always wins these corporations are not bad they just they’re trying to make profit for or they’re you know shareholders that’s who they’re focused on first they’re not focused on you so finding a fiduciaries you know is one of the most important elements somebody who’s legally required to put your needs ahead of their own so many people put their money on mutual funds and you know 96% of all mutual funds don’t even match the market over a 10-year period of time only 4% will match it or beat it and that 4% is always changing so you want to get someone who can give you advice who is extraordinary I’m actually really excited that you know I wrote that book and then I donated all the money and I’ve had 100 million people and I’m feeding another hundred million this year I’m gonna feed a billion people over the next nine years which I’m really excited about my partnership with feeding America but in doing that and writing the book I wanted people to not be screwed over so I spent half a million dollars quite frankly my own money and then I donated that just like the book to create this online site where people could go and they could put their numbers in and and they could find out what they actually were spending is I think you know 1% in fees is makes up 10 years of income you lose in other words if you paid 2% when you could have paid 1 or 3% you know 3% sort of won you’d be paying 20 years with a future income out just in fees for the same stocks the same bonds the same investments you could have owned for less people just don’t understand this so I created the site and and I had people go there and I donated the pieces and it instantly pull all your accounts in and showed you what you’re really being charged so people can make better decisions and then if you wanted a fiduciary commended six of the best and largest firms out there and then when I went through my paper back Tim something happened that just blew my mind which was one of the guys on the site his name is Peter Mallick from creative planning it’s the number one rated wealth manager for the last three years to give you an idea and number two number one for CNBC for the last two years and Barron’s was the first one for three years no one’s ever done it for three years so he’s brilliant brilliant guy managing you know at the time about seventeen billion dollars and he said listen Tony I want to sit down with you have a conversation with you because you care so much about people but there’s a little gray area in the law that some of the people you do business with are taking advantage of and he said I think you’re gonna go berserk when you find it out so when you and Ice you came to LA from the ubw and I met him right afterwards same day and I my hotel there and we sat down and talked to he showed me how these people that say their fiduciary is saying I’m here legally required to take care of you now have this little component called dual registration where they’re a broker and they’re a fiduciary so you’re going to somebody thinking that they are legally required they’re going to tell you I’m will your honor to take care of you and the middle conversation you could sweat hats and be a broker and sell you something that is inferior product that gives them just a higher Commission that has no value for you and they can do it so I looked on about every person the site but one was doing it I couldn’t believe it and it’s just gray area they’re getting by was so I’ve knocked him off the site and then on you know I was talking to Peter and I speeders I said this is a great way to get rid of your competition and he laughed he goes no I’m I’m just if the facts I said no I get it I said you know what why don’t your number one three years ago and no one’s ever done that and he has this approach you know you know our billionaire friends all have family offices where you know you have seven or eight people who full-time we’re looking at your mortgages and they’re looking at your counting and your investment you look at every aspect of your life and they make it work but you gotta be a billionaire to have it he created a billionaire family office type format for millionaires and I said listen if you’d be willing do this with people who lose the hundred thousand 50 thousand you won’t make money on it I know you won’t make money on it but I want to help everybody they’ll do that I’ve been enjoying forces with you so we spent several months together so now so you know I’m I’m pretty excited about I’m partners with Peter at creative planning I’m member the board productors and I’m also their head director of psychology for their investment group and I’m now that’s my focus is getting people to the right kind of person and so I’m responsible for basically helping educate the public and of course it’s a partner of the firm if I grow the firm I’m gonna get more clients it helps my business his business together because we’re together now but I could have been with anybody I picked this guy because he’s just second and on so you got to find the right person the other side of decision-making would be I think you look at health oh my god there are so many things in the health area that are so conflicted I think you know I just you asked me last time about my diet and I told you I got a really boring diet fir’d I was I was for what 16 years I was you know vegetarian and vegan and then I began eating fish and that was healing I need and I felt stronger I needed that and about gosh three months ago I started I had several challenges in a row I had the challenge of first you know four years of pounding my arms together with such intensity you know fifty hours in a week on on stage the nerves and my arms I couldn’t sleep on my side so I slept on my back not a big deal but then my wife kept saying how do you stop breathing I’m really worried I went to a sleep study and founded I stopped breathing 17 times in 16 minutes on my back so extreme sleep apnea so they gave you this this sleep app which is this like vacuum cleaner to put on your face and it’s extremely sexy you’ll get girls with it for sure and and I’m just like are you kidding me this is not supposed to live my life and then in the middle of this I go snowboarding and I get a snowboarding accident I trip you know three of my rotator cuffs I’m good at handling pain so it wasn’t that big a deal but then the pain starts going down my arm and I find this incredible this level of pain that’s 99 I mean I can have a pain but if it was as severe as anything imagined couldn’t sleep Canadian when the hospital for the MRI and found out I had spinal stenosis where the nerves are being pinched and spine is tightening up and you know they tell me I can’t snowboard again I can’t play squash I can’t you know I can’t jump around on stage and be crazy and so I wasn’t going to accept that so long story short I’m telling you this because I have a core belief the core belief is you ask me about quotes it’s a belief life is always happening for us not to us and it’s our job to find out where the benefit is if we do life is magnificent so I’m trying to find some benefit in not sleeping not having pain having a vacuum cleaner on my face and just and I and I won’t give up on all these guys are telling me my life is right and in the midst of all this I’m also experiencing something insane that ain’t on my wife because I know a warrior but not only 56 years old and I’ve never I’m on stage 50 hours you know I don’t forget a thing I mean it’s like my brain is just it’s a strength and I’m on stage and I’m trying to figure out all of a sudden what did they just say and why did I say it there’s like dementia and so that’s freaking me out all this is happening at once while I’ve just maybe six months before made this decision that said I am going to become a master of joy and happiness like I never had before as great as I think my life is I’m gonna end something as it arrives I’m gonna realize that there’s only two places you can live beautiful states of being joy happiness love passion you know decisiveness creativity oh all those states that when you’re in those emotional states life is magnificent you treat yourself and others at the highest level and then there are suffering states and none of us who are achievers would probably call it suffering just like achievers are never fearful they’re just stressed this is the deeper word for fear but if I follow your stress it’ll take me to your fear same thing so I never called suffering if you had said do you have a you know are you suffer I was suffer are you kidding I’ll suffer have the most magnificent life I have this incredible mission I have millions of people that I meet in love I got four incredible kids I got the greatest wife in the world I’m physically fit I got financial freedom but I did suffer because suffering really is any emotion that takes you out of those beautiful steaks so it would be I’d get frustrated I get stressed I get concerned I get overwhelmed I get all kinds of feelings they didn’t last very long but I feel the might say that’s part of life but really what happened for me is how you talk about better advice the advice I gave myself the advice I got I went to India spend some time with a friend of mine and came out of it and said the next level for me is realizing how to experience life at the highest level every day every moment finding ecstasy and joy in this moment with you in the moment with my wife in the moment when I’m gonna go talk with someone I mean billionaires are common someone who is truly happy every moment of life is not and so my you know you talk about advice or direction my whole she became to say look my whole life is about helping people create an extraordinary quality of life not a good one not even a great one just life on their terms whatever that is some people that’s three beautiful children some people that’s a garden some people that’s poetry some people have built a billion-dollar business if there’s no right or wrong but whatever you really want to get it you got to master two skills and the one everybody knows is the science of achievement like we’ve got to figure out how to take our visions and make it real and the people to do that are the people that everybody knows the name of and respect and who have their life the way they want it seemingly and it is a science in that achievement there are rules if you want to know finance there are rules to finance I just spent four or five years doing it you follow those rules you’re gonna have an abundance the money may not be a billionaire but you’re never to bundage some money you break those rules I don’t care who you are you’re gonna have financial stress same thing with the body you and I both know we’re all biochemical unique but there’s certain fundamentals if you violate them you’re gonna have low energy and disease if you align with them you’re gonna have high energy so that’s science of achievement you and I could dig into that forever but the one I’m passionate about the one I really want to jump on this this call with you on because I really want to spread the word is two things it’s this idea that the other skill you need that is so boring and our culture does not reinforce it does not show its true importance is the art of fulfillment and it’s an art Tim it’s not a science because what’s going to light you up you and our good friends and what lights me up there’s gonna be a lot of things in common to be some things that are different there’s a woman in your life she’s gonna love certain things and get a lot of the whole common certain things she’s gonna be excited by the don’t excite you that’s just part of life I was with Steve went and I think you know Steve’s a dear friend of mine from built most of Las Vegas in Macau and I he calls me up one day he’s perfect US and he says to me he says where are you in the world I said I’m in Sun Valley and we both have some summits Cape homes and Sun Valley vacation homes there because I’m in Sun Valley he goes do you know it’s my birthday I said I do know your birthday Stevens there’s gonna call you because we don’t even call me I’m here come see me should I said I thought that comes to you he says when you come I gotta tell you something he said I have been coveting a painting for 17 years and he said I just outbid everybody had sought the bees for it and he said Tony you got to see it it’s I paid eighty two million dollars for this picture and I’m like oh my god I’ve seen some of his paintings the castles are amazing is you know he’s got he’s got everything you can imagine Rembrandt and so I said okay I can’t wait to see it so I’m driving to his house I’ll never forget I’m picturing my mind is like the Mona Lisa it’s like a ram Manion what is this is gonna be incredible and I walk in this house he goes look and I look up and it’s a big red square I mean if you know art it’s called a rock carrasco yeah red square with a little bit of orange in it right and I look at mrs.
Steve you know I first admired it and I started teasing my C you know give me 100 bucks in 15 minutes I could do this shit I’m telling you you like that ego you know you understand the guy committed suicide well if he could be a suicide that better be his blood on there for 82 million dollars for a nice face so I teased him about it but the reason I bring it up is he finds 82 million dollars of value in that paint and I respect him because I don’t like he knows each brush stroke and what it means that what went into it and what the talent is I don’t have that level of sophistication around that kind of art so I look at that and I go red square he looks in it and goes 82 million dollars of the value that’s how humans function so you and I have to figure out what it is that really lights us up because success without fulfill to me is the ultimate failure in life the worst advice you can get is going Eva your goals most people do that and they go is this all there is what you have to find out is what’s going to fulfill you and there are no it’s not like a science because it’s different everybody you want to know what’s I’m up here in BC right now I’m looking out at the forest and you look at this forest you don’t know what God loves the universe loves it’s pretty obvious nothing is the same it’s all diverse it’s pure diversity right so that’s what’s real but the principle that makes you feel like fulfilled you just got to grow anybody I don’t how much money they have how many Academy words they have how many people they like it or like them I don’t how much my doesn’t matter what they have it’s never enough if you don’t keep growing because if you don’t grow you die if your business is not growing don’t bullshit yourself it’s shrinking if your relationship is not growing it is shrinking it is dying there is no in-between in real life of how things really live and if you grow the reason I believe growth is the imperative in the universe not my rules everything universe grows or dies is because it gives us something to give and I really believe that’s what we’re made for we’re most alive when we don’t just do something for ourselves but we really feel like our life matters because it extends beyond ourselves into contribution so I’ll give you a perfect example I’ve been sharing this example all over the world because it’s just so relevant and I also wanted to test how people responded so during these premiers of I’m not your guru around the country I’ve gone up afterwards for Q&A and I ask people as well as in my seminars around the world I’d say how many of you I said we’ve lost a national treasure in the United States two years ago and I asked this in China Beijing and Tokyo and Sydney down in Brazil up in Toronto in America I said his name is Robin Williams as how many of you in this room don’t region if you liked Robin Williams raise your hand if you love Robin woods and 98% of em in Beijing in Tokyo in Sydney I’m talking about all over the world ninety two the people ninety nine percent raise their hand and I give shit to the 1% they’re assholes that didn’t like it but I see you asshole I could do that like Robert Roy that’s right but the truth is these people say they love him they didn’t even know him that was he a master of achievement science of achievement you bet I mean everybody comes to Hollywood big dreams everybody tells you’re full of shit this guy did it he won his own TV show he did it he won the number one show they all said there’s no way and some people are inch enough to remember Mork and Mindy and he did it then he wanted to have the most beautiful family and he did it and he said he wanted make more money than he could spend and he achieved it then he said this is not enough I want to make movies not just TV and he did that then he said I want to win the Academy Award for not being funny his number one skill and he did it he said you want to make the whole world laugh and he did it he want to get the whole world 11 and he did it and he hung himself hung himself in his own home leaving hundreds of millions of people around the world literally that loved this man and screw us he left his children his wife scarred for life and he was a good man how do you explain that I’ll tell you explain it the worst advice a person who never got summer got stuck in his psychology that achievement was more important than fulfillment it’s the biggest fucking lie on the planet and if you get it if you wake up to it you can actually have a life that is so rich and so beautiful but the only way you can do it is you got to understand this brand inside our heads is a two million year old brain and this two million year old brain was not designed to make you happy was designed to make you survive and it’s ancient old survival software that is running you a good deal of time whenever you’re suffering that survival software is there and the reason you’re suffering is you’re focused on yourself you’re obsessing on yourself people tell me I’m not suffering that way if I’m worried about my kids my kids are not what they need to be no the reason they’re upset is they feel they failed their kids it’s about them still in fact I began to uncover we’re all suffering comes from it I found in most simple little tools I dug in suffering comes from three thought patterns loss less never if you are in a situation where you believe that someone did something the government your friend your co-worker your kid whoever and because they did that you lost love or you lost an opportunity or you lost respect or you lost anything the illusion of loss is the place we suffer and it is unconsciously even when it’s not conscious because we’re obsessing about ourselves we’re having this illusion that something happened and now life as we expect it to be is not there and our expectations are what keeping us from feeling that happiness on the other hand the other one is less if you did something I did something you failed to do something as my friend I fail to do something for you and as a result either of us starts thinking we have less respect less love less joy less upper take less something you’re going to suffer you’re going to come up with those emotions that make you crazy and the worst one is when you start thinking because you did this or I did this or you didn’t do that I didn’t this that the government or somebody did something because of that we will never have something again then people get crazy inside and the antidote to that suffering is appreciation it’s getting outside of yourself and finding something to appreciate because we get so upset about stuff today that’s nothing give you a perfect example you know I’m privileged enough now to have a intercontinental straight to China 9 stop it’s it’s unbelievable privilege at the stage of my life but my whole life I’ve thrown commercial and I get on Qantas airlines to go to Australia 14 hours you know the drill and yeah what I be is like I got 18 companies now twelve of them that I actively manage we got 1200 employees on three continents and seven industries we knew five billion in sales plus this year combined with all these people with all that going on I get on that plane and my brand be like oh my god I’m gonna be disconnected for 14 hours and I go I create all this stress what’s stressful about sitting or lying down if you’re privileged enough to be in a first-class seat I mean the stories we tell ourselves that stress us out but on this flight it’s like you know you’re used to you know domestically you got access to internet and you got you can thank God you got connections to Facebook and Instagram god forbid that you’d be apart from that for a few minutes in your emails and I get on the plane it’s like they announced for the first time we have Internet until I swear to god it was like God entered the body people were cheering people stood up actually stood up and clapped and I have to admit I didn’t stand up and clap but I was doing that inside oh yeah this is so cool and then what do you think happens 15 minutes later yeah the Internet the Internet is it is announced to not be working for how long I’ve no idea 14 hours I did never work again and people like this is bullshit I’m not putting up with this what thousand wrongly people my point is 15 minutes earlier it was a miracle now it’s already an expectation you want to change your life you want to end suffering stop just focusing on achievement it’s easy to achieve when you’re fulfilled anyway you feel better actually trade your expectations for appreciation and your whole life changes in a moment fuck a whole game so what I decided to do is to realize if I was going to take a different level of life life is too short to suffer you know it took me to suffer Tim I would call it suffer and sake a little stressed or frustrated I just got up my phone nearby it’s all time what do you think the chances are if you’re right now are you damn what do you think the chances are with 1200 please across all these industries multiple continents what are the chances that someone is effing up something right now yeah hundred the chances are yeah its 100% and if I had my phone nearby there’s gonna be a text or an email or a slack or something to let me know that and I’m gonna go from this beautiful state I’m in – what are you kidding me and that would be my life and I realized that my happiness was so cheap I give my happiness over somebody not doing what I thought they should do and the more people that you’re then responsible to and for the more likelihood just the law of averages says it’s not going to work out the way you expect and so I finally decided I got a number one and this is my invitation everyone’s why I came on because I’m so passionate about this you could tell this that probably feels like a soliloquy right now I apologize my friend but I just want to plant the seed with everybody because it is is a beautiful life and it’s blessed the life that I’ve had and I’ve worked my ass off for it I’ve been blessed both but out of all of that nothing compares the last year and a half for my wife and I both made this distinction and said there’s only two state you live in beautiful states or suffering States and life is too short to suffer so when we start to suffer we have a 90 second rule feel it for 90 seconds figure it out let it go because all these things were so upset at my preference is that everybody would do think is a certain way my preference is I have the internet on the plane we all have these preferences that we make life and death it’s like this survival mechanism in our brain is always looking for what’s wrong that’s what it does that’s the survival mechanism it’s looking for it’s wrong so you can fight it or fight it but there’s no longer a saber-toothed tiger to avoid so now that worries about what are people thinking of me or do I have enough money in a country where if you live in poverty in the United States you’re actually in the 1% of the world people say they’re in the 99% Arline half the world lives on two dollars and fifty cents a day 900 bucks a year so I don’t anybody be in poverty anywhere but we live in a world where most of us are looking for what’s wrong what’s wrong is always available so is what’s right and if you don’t take control of your focus everything in your life will disappear so we have second rule and if you want later on the show here we can wait I can do a little process there buddy for two minutes and show them how to end some suffering as it occurs yeah the suffering will show up again because the mind is always looking for what’s wrong and so it shows up it’s not like it won’t show up it’s just you kill it I we saw people kill the monster while it’s a baby don’t wait till it’s Godzilla eating the city I mean whatever little challenge you got you want to kill it right away so in the beginning it should have probably been a for our rule quite honestly but you know in years ago would have been a four-month rule of upset and so forth but we really got it down like a muscle to 90 seconds and I cannot tell you the level of magnificence and joy and happiness you have when you don’t stress out about all the stuff that you can’t control that’s just a preference and you find the beauty and everything and you use what life is offering you I mean I’ve always done this it just it’s like anything else you can’t manage something you don’t measure right and I wasn’t measuring this because I just called these other emotions they weren’t dominant they weren’t destroying my life they were just showing up at times I called that life no that’s not life that’s survival software that’s an old brain and I teach my brain what to do I don’t my brain I don’t have an argument I don’t have negotiations in my mind I’ve trained my brain through conditioning you do this and now this year I’ve trained it to just let go and find what is beautiful in each moment and I’m telling you there is nothing on earth I’ve experienced it’s brought more joy I didn’t need my wife cuz also when you’re doing that you’re in a different place you’re not you can’t be present with someone when you’re stressed out inside and if there’s really a problem it’s so much easier to solve when you’re in a beautiful state of being with all your ability and strength than when you’re in a stressed out state all the people then getting stressed out makes me better it’s bullshit I can tell you you might look like you’re getting better but you haven’t really tried being in the ultimate beautiful states and solving something and seeing how much faster it’ll be so I am on a jury to invite people to make the most important decision of their life which is deciding to end suffering deciding to live in a beautiful state that’s my spiritual vision now my friend his name’s Christian GaN India said you know what’s your spiritual vision that’s how this conversation started he said to live in a beautiful state all day long every day that’s my entire place because if I do that else come to it and I thought someone asked me the other day eh what would cause someone to kill men women and children and you know like you’ve seen happen in Paris and what happened in Nice recently what’s happened obviously in Orlando and San Bernardino and I said I can’t tell you the kind of person who did but I tell you didn’t do it a happy person didn’t go kill all those people a fulfilled human being a person in a beautiful state does not plot or try to harm anybody much just kill anybody a person a beautiful state is not out there trying to you know steal from somebody else and so you know when you get on an airplane and and the first thing they say is if we have a problem and we lose oxygen Maskull dropped it down and put it on your child first right no they say put on yourself first which seems selfish with your child we all want to take care of a kid first but the reason is if you don’t take care of yourself you’re gonna have nothing for that child that child is going to die too putting yourself in a beautiful state is putting that living oxygen inside of you and then you have things to give other people as long as you’re suffering suffering but gets more suffering so I always tell people figure out what your favorite flavor of suffering is you are you the person gets stressed out all the time is that anxiety is it worry is it anger is it pissed off is it you know trying to please if it what is your favorite style of suffering and end it because when you end that there’s a level of freedom but no amount of money will give you no amount of love will give you to no amount of accolades no minute Academy Awards none of that shit I get the call from all those multi billionaire clients and from all those people may entertain the business who’ve got everything and they’re miserable and they bring me in to help them with their business or whatever it is and I’m the Trojan horse I give them what they want but I know what I’m really there for is also given what they need and to help them to find that joy in happening so I’ve been doing that you know like managing coaching Paul Tudor Jones on the top ten financial traders in the history of the world in a guy who 1987 when the stock market took its biggest percentage drop ever percentage-wise still the most he made 200% for his clients and then he lost money but I’m coaching him now for 22 years he hasn’t lost money in 22 years so I’m doing my job but I also making sure that man is fulfilled and that to me is my real mission with him even though I’m helping him on the business side in a way that he’s very pleased with making sure that his life is fulfilled is my ultimate ultimate right so I finished with a little piece I just think a lot of people say to me well you know God’s not really in my life I don’t know there’s a god or an infinite energy or whatever you want to call what you think is created you and I always say to people and you imagine if you viewer the Creator and you come here to one of your creations and you say to this person Joe how do you like what I created for you and he says jeez God I mean it’s hot as shit here couldn’t you just kept it at 78° what I do have to change all these temperatures make it so tough and then you got these stupid people I got a deal with all the time they’re always getting in my way and you know and I don’t have to work for a living and plus you got these little red ants a tiny Lancer they bite mast they hurt like how why would you create these annoying ant if your God do you want to hang out with this person and if you’re a human you wanna hang out with him and he your god you go to somebody else you say how is it going you know the creation that created via the guy says hey man god this is so incredible it’s the most beautiful place I could ever imagine the sky here the water oh my god there’s so many different people that challenge me and help me to grow and learn people I can love and oh my god you’ve been creating these red ants I mean these red ants are so tiny I’m a thousand times their size and they’re so courageous they come even bite me it’s cool what you’ve created here you know who do you want to hang with so life goes I don’t got in my life that’s probably because you whine and bitch too much do you feel God’s presence right we have got to stop the suffering I don’t know many people that don’t suffer regularly they don’t call it suffering but that’s what they do and it’s something you can end not like one time it’s like drawing a line in the sand and say if I want to take the island I’m going to burn the boats I’m not going back and then committing yourself to it and not beating yourself up like you know I don’t say my life oh you’re suffering and you need to change we have a 90 second rule it doesn’t work that way I’m just like honey I don’t know if you’re suffering or not I feel energy in you right now and I just want you know I’m here for you anything I can do to help and we do our own internal work but if she suffered for whatever period of time internally I’m there for her but I’m not gonna make her wrong for it because what happens is your brain starts to see how life can really be and it is more beautiful than most humans will ever dream of and so most people try to drink or smoke or do something to alter their state to get in a beautiful state and you can wire yourself to be that way so this is my little soliloquy thank you for the pump it out cuz you’re such a gem Tim let me do it but it’s just like if I could get every human being to truly make the decision keep the word and keep practicing because it’s a daily practice cuz I still feel if something shows up and you see it you let it go but as you do it more and more it’s like like I said it’s like a muscle there is a level of joy as much as you never dreamed you have I’m telling you there’s a hundredfold out there and I’m inviting your listeners to consider trying a real simple ten day challenge to say for 10 days I’m just not gonna suffer I’m an Indian I’m gonna let it go I’m gonna realize don’t sweat the small stuff it’s all small stuff I’m gonna stop obsessing about myself I’m gonna focus on what I can appreciate what’s beautiful and just try and see what happens the end of ten days you really believe is the most important thing a wife like I do then you commit to that decision long term and maybe surround some of your friends and family sharing why you’ve done it so you got some leverage on yourself and you keep moving forward and keep expanding and for people who I’m going to take you up on what you said a little bit earlier just in terms of describing how the 90 second rule works in practice I think a lot of people listening we want to take you up on the challenge and to have the sort of 90 second rule process in their toolkit as part of that what what is it what does it look like could you give us an example of what that might look like I’ll give an example right how to use it recently um I was in Dallas I don’t know three or four weeks ago I was doing an Unleashed power with an event we got about 7500 people there eight thousand people there and we went to the fire walk was no different than a fire walk I’ve ever done in 35 years we always have you know quarter of a percent or half of one percent under one percent of people that have hot spots or blisters they know they could get in advance and you know it’s like going you’re gonna go do a marathon you know you could get blisters and if you do you don’t quit you push through it and it’s a Badge of Courage and you’re proud of yourself right and you know the firewalk that’s what it is it’s an experience of someone overcoming their fear it’s something real it’s visceral and you got get yourself to take action in spite of it and you know there is some exposure some danger if you want to call it that but he knows it and we have medical professionals on-site and they take care of people it’s aloe vera some blisters they go away right and not make it like it’s no big deal but it’s not a big deal and this has happened to me five years ago when San Jose where somebody was driving by his saw some people coming out called 9-1-1 said there’s all these people burning here and it became the story overnight that all these people had burned at this fire walk it went around the world in the news cycle the 24/7 news cycle where people don’t have they don’t send reporters out do you never you they just copy the same story to the same thing over and over again they said people are hospitalized not a single person was hospitalized none of was true Fox News it took four weeks but Arianna Huffington it’s been do our events so she put a reporter on this who actually went out investigated went to the hospital thought no one was hospitalized thought it was all bullshit so they wrote a story and my lawyers actually worked and got Fox News believe it or not to do a reversal or they apologized and said it was incorrect then few weeks ago I’m in Dallas same exact thing somebody doesn’t know what’s going on calls 911 says you gotta send ambulances there’s hundreds of people burning nobody was hospitalized five people want additional attention I looked at it saw they were fine and released and they’re all in the seminar the next day but everyone might my email box my texting everything still people all the world’s I am so sorry about this what happened to you what happened to Beeman nothing happened to you man so you can only imagine now this was not truly 90 seconds less so I’m telling this one this one was like at 30 40 minutes because every time I thought it was done another thing came in but here’s what I did eventually I got myself back is at this process there’s a scientific stats and of scientific studies that show that when your mind in your heart your heart actually has hormones that affect the way your brain functions it’s not just your brain affecting your heart they interact when they’re in alignment human beings are able to resolve internal conflicts often the conflicts we have are between our conscious and unconscious mind between our mind and our heart often as an example and if I were to put electrodes on your brain and on your heart you all know an EEG and EKG we can see that they’re both in your normal state pretty jagged up and down and they don’t look anything like each other but if all you do is breathe put your hands on your heart physically and anyone listening let’s go ahead and do this right now in a second but I’ll first tell you what we’re going to do you put both your hands on your heart physically and you feel your heart you put all your focus in your heart you breathe into your heart and you feel gratitude for two minutes we think of three events in your life you feel grateful for and you step in and feel it at the end of two minutes you are in what I call a beautiful state because I can look at your EEG and EKG and it’s dramatic first they are jagged they’re rounded but what’s mind-boggling and I’m sure you’ve probably noticed him they literally sync up they become identical they look like they’re tracing each other and when that happens it’s not just your mind I always tell people get in your head you’re dead your minds great for strategy but it’ll never make you enjoy your life it’ll never let you enjoy the taste of an apple because it’ll go is there again according to come from I mean versus your heart but you can bring the juice of anything back to you so what what really I’m trying to do with everyone in this situation is I’m trying to show them how to line these up and it’s really easy so if you want to do it right now and you want to test that it works let’s do this and Tim you can do this with me if you’d like to sure link of a situation you might not have any in your life Tim you’re so crazy in this area and so on top of it but most of us have situations where there are all of you listening a place where you have some unfinished business yeah that’s the story of my life stunning okay well your story of all our lives right let’s just be a human right but it’s it’s a place where there’s something that you should have handled you haven’t handled with a person or situation it stresses you out and so what we tend to do is focus on other stuff because we don’t want to have to deal with that because it’s stressful because this you know that’s painful and so think of something that on a 0 to 10 scale where 10 is totally stressed out and zero is not at all pick something that’s unfinished business in your business or personal life with something or someone and it’s at least a seven eight nine or ten just so you can see that this really works now by the way there are hundreds of ways to do this I’m just gonna give you this one cuz we can do it in two minutes right so I’m hoping that Tim do you have one by Jim’s idea together Const okay for you know tell me the content no one estas to Kanta alright everyone if you would just for a moment I don’t have any music in the background which led you to enhance this normally but let’s just do it put both your hands on your heart and physically breathe deep into your heart you’re breathing deep in your heart feel the strength of your heart feel the power of your heart feel the beauty of your heart what are you proud or grateful that your heart has guided you to do or to give or to feel or to enjoy and feel the strength to not breathe into it feel the blood flow of the oxygen and feel grateful for your heart first cuz think about it you didn’t have to earn this heart it was given to you you didn’t have to prove your value or you’re worth you enough to accomplish anything something loved you enough to give you the gift of life as long as its heart is beating you have that gift and you live it beats a hundred thousand times a day pumps blood through 60,000 miles of blood vessels we put them end to end they go around the earth twice at the equator that’s what’s inside every one of us you want to think about it what a gift so as you breathe in your heart feeling your powerful heart I want you to spare a moment we’re going to think of three but just think first of one event in your life one experience one moment that you could feel so grateful for if you wanted to a magic moment a sacred moment sexy moment a beautiful moment a loving moment any moment really you could feel grateful for if you wanted to right now and then step into that memory from it like step on your body as if you were there see what you would have solved and as if you’re there or here what you’d hear back there not breathe the way you were breathing back then if you filled up with that sense of gratitude for that moment how do you smile when you feel so grateful or so thankful what’s the look in your eyes how do you breathe let’s look in your face when you feel really really grateful and just fill it out fill up with gratitude the reason we use gratitude by the way is the two motions that mess us up most is anger and fear and you need can’t be grateful and angry simultaneously it’s the antidote it can’t be fearful and angry simultaneously so fill up the gratitude and now think of a second moment you could feel truly grateful for and again breathe deep in your heart feel that power just think of any other moment it could be from your childhood or adult to that it could be lastly could be today it could be 10 years ago any moment that you could just truly feel like that was a grace that was magical that was beautiful that that’s magnificent something that gives you the feeling of tremendous gratitude if you really focused on it breathe it feel it enjoy it fill up with gratitude then finally think of a third moment you can feel truly grateful for step in it see it feel it be there feel the crowd – what were you so grateful for what are you grateful for and then maybe throw one extra one in think of a coincidence you know we all love when life happens for us it’s not to us we love coincidences because we didn’t do anything something happened for us you’re going to do one thing and you met somebody that you developed a partnership with or became a friend or a lover or the level of your life or maybe a business opportunity came from a coincidence or an insight came from a coincidence that’s been so valuable in your life something you’re grateful for what’s the coincidence that led to something you’re so grateful for and feel the gratitude for that it wasn’t a coincidence or were you guided hmm now you breathe in your heart you’ve been doing this for about two minutes keep breathing keep feeling it feeling grateful let’s use this state to solve the problems so the easy way to do that is to keep breathing your heart stay out of your head in your heart and think of that situation that’s unfinished business that stressed you out in the past but keep breathing this beautiful state and ask yourself this question ask yourself all I need to focus on in that situation all I need to focus on all I need to remember is what your heart knows all I need to focus on all you remember all I need to do in that situation is what your heart knows the answer calling you to focus on all I need to remember Halling to do is and then your heart probably knows the answer I’ve done this a million times not every one of you but normal drill might have so people say raise your hand if you’ve got that answer the ninety-eight ninety-nine percent of people usually do even with a simple technique and you know what to do what’s next what happened for you Tim uh yeah no I thought I did get a lot of clarity and quite frankly even if I didn’t get the clarity on the problem just the state shift and this is something of course I’ve been to unleash the power within just the and we don’t time to necessarily dig into it right now but just this the the state story strategy as opposed to the other way around I mean it’s it’s yes it’s it’s very easy for me to forget because I’m so hyper rational and I like to depend on the brain on the mind for strategy yes if is is I remember then I’m paraphrasing here you put it if you’re in a negative state or frazzled state you only see the problem you only see the problems you don’t see sort of the space grant between and so yeah it’s a tremendous exercise that’s great well you know it is it’s it’s taking the power of your incredible cognitive capacity but bringing in the infinite capacity of the heart which changes it changes the state as you said in you know in a different state you get totally different answers and beautiful states of being we want to cultivate them so two minutes put your hands on your heart breathe think of three things you’re really grateful for fully associate and then think about bothering you needed to resolve and just go where all you focus on all and you remember all you to do is what and you’ll get your answer that’s just one technique but it works so easily and works for most things – – this since it reminds me so much of my stream person experience with you at the event and of course we’ve met outside of the event but I wanted to ask you a question that’s going to segue into a conversation about the dock because I actually watched you know I was very honored to get to see the dock before it came out publicly and man talk about and I feel like good films whether they’re fiction or documentaries tend to do this but there there are a lot of moments when you don’t know whether to laugh or cry Pitts and emotionally a very emotionally powerful film uh how is date with destiny evolved over the last second certificates up a decade or so and for the people who don’t know what is David destiny that’s good well you you mentioned earlier unleash the power within which is my you know four-day weekend seminar that we do for you know eight to ten thousand people and I love if you make any comments because I hope this some of your listeners will come join us I know you’ve had a great time we can share that but date with destiny I see about two hundred thousand people a year in 12 to 15 countries some of the countries I go to three times like Australia London and so forth but I only see 2500 people on date with destiny I only do one event in the United States once a year there and do it in December usually in Florida it’s six days long I do one in Australia also but in the US only one time six days long 2,500 people people do 10 20 pages of homework I read it all and it’s an experience designed to help you to uncover the every what controls every thought feeling and emotion of your life every thought feeling emotion what you do what you don’t do is controlled by your beliefs your values and your rules and most of us did not consciously pick most of those we adapted them to our environments into the people are on a please and so our life is a reflection of us and a lot of conditioning this allows you to open it up and say I am now the conditioner what is it that I truly want most for my life at this stage where I am today not ten years ago and what’s in the way how do I remove it and what do I need to replace it with in my deep in my nervous system not just in some thought pattern but literally in the way my nervous functions and we do this six days and nights it goes you know 12 13 hours a day and Joe Bruin jur who’s you know an amazing two-time Academy Award nominated and two-time Emmy winning two-time Peabody winning documentarian he’s done some amazing films I’d saw a Metallica some kind of monster which was a brilliant film about these guys and going to a new stage of life and hating each other and how they going to break through and intervene he also didn’t want to call Paradise Lost which was three films that over two decades where he got three men that were innocent off death row is that’s kind of guy yes but he’s a he’s seen the worst side of life and I met him we have a mutual friend that created the show billions and which is an aside if people have seen that show the woman and that shows the coach to the you know the billionaire hedge fund guys I trained her and a lot of those things are actually things I really do her sex scenes I did not train but the other stuff you don’t do the domination in the the Stiletto domination that wasn’t my stilettos or my stilettos but the rest of its there yeah right Brian Koppelman yeah you know Brian that’s right so Brian Koppelman introduces us and this is 2012 and I just sense here’s this beautiful man I had so much respect for and he wasn’t fulfilled perfect example he’s like got all these Academy Awards he I mean if you got three people who are dying off of death row I mean what else need to do in your life to have valued to feel like your life was worthwhile but I could feel he was turning 50 wasn’t there so long story short I invite him date with destiny he’s told me since that he couldn’t understand why he went he said I’m not a seminar guy I’m not into any of this stuff I’m sceptical and pessimistic I see the worst side of life but something inside of our conversation intrigued him and I got in there and within two hours he wanted to run he’s trying to keep it out of the filthy I said I can’t take this energy in this jumping and his music and people want to talk to me and they want to ask me personal questions because I’m just not made for this he called his wife and said you know Tony such a nice guy and he invited me here what’s my exit strategy I can’t do six hours more I can be six minutes for the show and she said honey you know there’s a reason you were pulled to do this you never would in a million years you won’t even pick a six day vacation your why don’t you stay at least one more day before you fail and the next day we did this process where I have him everyone reclaim you know I ask people what the earliest memory is and I had to reclaim the memory before that that you don’t realize is there and when you do it releases what was holding him back and he woke up you know opened his eyes flooded with tears he said he hadn’t cried in 20 years like that and felt this incredible relief and he said okay I’m in I’m gonna play full out and then at the end of it he saw how cinematic this was these interventions are just pretty dramatic you know suicidal ones people that are so successful and miserable all these things and so he came and pitch me on it thinking I was going to say yes and I said no for two years because I just didn’t want to disrupt the environment I didn’t want to disrupt the people there because I have cameras but they’re long distance lenses only so you can see the person’s face on a giant screen with 2500 people so you get to be fully associated but you know somebody didn’t document with a camera in your face a different game so after two years he said look what if I came in and if you think it interferes with their experience you ended it’s my loss I said if you want to take that risk that I’m willing to do it because I just can’t let it disrupt the people and I was also skeptical how you going to take 6 13 12 14 hour days and put in less than two hours but that’s why he’s got the Academy Awards and he did a phenomenal job and it’s we had a half a million people join us just on Facebook while on an update came out after they watched the film for QA it’s just like the response to it has been greater than anything we could have imagined and I’ve had a number of friends reach out to me to recommend that I see the doc which of course I appreciate and I will say also for those people listening who are don’t have a lot of exposure to Tony or maybe have misconceptions the most common thing I’ve heard from friends who’ve seen the doc is I thought Tony was X and now I think about Tony totally differently and I think it’s very hard to appreciate some of your unique abilities and tools without seeing some of the interventions for instance I think I think it’s it’s a it’s a very different visceral and powerful experience so I certainly recommend it I mean I’ve already recommended it and watched it very early on and just just love this where can people find the doc I’m not your guru where’s the best place for people check it out um it’s on Netflix now it’s in 190 countries already translated so we’re pretty thrilled about the exposure that we’ve had around the world but I joined you know I didn’t make the film like so people would understand me more I want people have a translational experience and what Joe did so brilliantly is it’s like a concert film he like drops you he’s the fly on the wall and you actually get to enter that event and experience what it’s really like and just like a great movie when you watch the characters you feel what they feel well you feel these characters as they’re transforming and it has a transformative effect I was you know I was just in New York the other day and there was a woman who stood up after the premiere and Jesus crying and she just said I just have to tie I’ve been laughing and crying this entire two hours and she said you know I’ve stage three cancer and she said you know I’ve just had given up and she said I was coming here and I thought who the hell is Tony Robbins what the hell is this bullshit but your friend dragged her there and she said I’m gonna heal she cuz I’m in 1 million percent she cuz I I can’t tell you the transformation guys like I just got back from Traverse City Michigan Michael Moore calls me up and he saw the film he used to think you know what I did was BS it let you know me personally just not personal develop anything I think that’s nature it’s just all why it’s all bs and he called up and said this film effed me up because this changed me this made me a better person it made me a better filmmaker he’s put this in writing a better filmmaker a better person he said I think this film will save lives and silly– asked us if we fly up to Traverse City for his film festival we just did the other day I mean I probably laughed harder than I ever have in my life hearing his tell the story of what this bill did yes we’re really really pleased so it’s free go on Netflix it’s free if you don’t 190 countries anywhere in the world I know you’re my followers are all over the world so are yours you can go on Netflix and if you don’t have enough likes you can join for I think three the first month or eight bucks but you get everything for it so we’re excited to have this available for everyone and just just as a side note because you mentioned the crying I’m not I’m not much of a crier never have been but man and I won’t I won’t spoil it by giving too much context but the intervention with the Brazilian woman that component completely knocked me on my ass that there’s some really really powerful moments and transformational moments in the doc so I recommend everybody check it out Tony I want to let you get back to your day is there anything else that you would like to share with people any parting thoughts or anything else that you might want to add oh actually there two maybe quick things we could we could touch on you mentioned your breakfast but never came back to it oh yeah thank you reading my mind I want to close that loop and then also if with your financial partner if there is a particular website or service available people should check out or that is going to be launching if you want to mention that sure if you want if you would like to have a second opinion like someone to look at your finances for you they’ll do it for free at creative planning dotnet it’s creative planning dotnet and as I said they do like a home office for someone who’s not a multi-billionaire I mean they literally look at every aspect of it and it’s full disclosure so you understand I’m a member of that team so if you join I benefit in some way from an FCC perspective but those are just want you to be clear about that but I I could have teamed up with anybody as I say he’s been rated number one three years in a row by Barron’s no one’s done that in history number one wealth manager so he’s phenomenal guy as far as the other piece what I reason I was telling the story was twofold and so I don’t give up right so I left off with you know now I got spinal stenosis and they tell me I can’t do anything I’m going to a doctor after doctor I find a guy in Australia who says with a hundred hours of hyperbaric oxygen at two levels deep 65 feet below you will see changes in the spine that people say are impossible because the new science shows that you get eight hundred percent more stem cells released in the body when you do this and it goes to the parts of the body need to be healed or that are inflamed and starts to heal them and he sent me some MRIs for me to look at before and afters and it was it looked like magic so I said okay I’m doing this I’ll fly to Australia I’ll see this guy I got to work on this I got so much going on my nervous system and he says to me Tony before you come I want you to these inflammation tests I can see if you have any cytokines and he’s you know kind ascribing there so I go your blood tests and while I’m there man says to me you want to do a metals test while you’re here and I said well no what metals like mercury lead I said you know I had my amalgams out 25 years ago so I don’t think it’s a problem yeah why not let’s do it that metals test came back the doctor called he said I must speak to you it’s an emergency you wouldn’t leave a message I finally call him and he says mr.
Robbins he said we measure you know mercury on a zero to five scale if you’re three four or five you’re in danger you’ve got to get it out of your nervous system he said the most I’ve ever measured in a human is 75-year 123 Wow and I was like dumbfounded and he said are you losing your memory at times I was like I didn’t even told my wife this yet right because as I thought I gotta figure this out and I said yes it’s been at me on stage he said look it up this is you know a lot of people are misdiagnosed with dementia when really what it is mercury poisoning it’s just your short-term memory and he said it’ll come back once you get it out as long as there’s not long-term damage I said I can’t tell you just maybe breathe the level I can’t even tell you and he said in addition he said how exhausted are you I said I don’t think I’ve ever felt some more exhausted in my life I couldn’t figure it out and I’m working my tail off but I’ve always worked my tail off you know he’s a Tony it literally disrupts the inside the the wood he caught the mitochondria side the cell again the mitochondria and so that’s the factory of energy in the body right say year you literally are having your energy depleted out of your nervous system they said you can have a cardiac you know arrest from this experience especially this level even if you’re then even if your arteries are clean he said we have to get this out so I’ve been on this massive detox and the reason I’m sharing it though is all this shit I went through not being able to breathe and sleep a torn rotator cuff spinal stenosis it all seemed like you know the worst things that could happen in your life I was practicing beautiful state and because I was practicing that had been practicing beforehand this would have devastated me and look everything my life seems to be gone and I’m doing 7 hours a day 6 to 7 hours a day of oxygen therapy of detoxification of Myers you know into my veins all the stuff that you got to do to do this and still doing my companies being on stage doing all the crazy things I’m doing but because I was practicing it I was able to separate the 99 pain from suffering so I want people to get this you gonna pain without suffering the pain was off the charts hard hard to sleep hard to move hard to do everything initially but what was beautiful was I started realizing the suffering was the story I had the story of why this happened to me what I ever get this out of me will I ever be able to be able you know squash again get on stage again snowboard again like all that stuff that the mind wants to do because it’s so fearful and it’s trying to fight or flight and I just end it end to end to end it in this College just pain it’s just pain and I’m going to find the solution this and I kept putting myself back in that if I had not been practicing this before it never happened also if I not had all these pain and problems I wouldn’t have found out I had all these metals in my body and I’d be dead within a year or two so the good news is I’m down to 32 on Anna from 123 and I think in the next 90 days I’ll have the rest of that out of me I’m doing the oxygen therapy and I’m gonna do stem-cell therapy and I’m gonna get myself back where it belongs but I’ve been telling the story and sharing with everybody i knows all my friends to start with I’ve had three different friends with incredibly high mercury led one guy had rat poison in him he had stuff he used to work in the dental field and you probably know dentists have the highest suicide rate in the world and part of that has to do with all the metals that we live in an environment it’s toxic you say where’d you get all that metal in your body I told you before all eat was fish the two fishes I used II always was swordfish and tuna my favorite I have salad swordfish and tuna likes like clockwork and they live 75 years they consume all the smaller fish and they have a thousand times more mercury in them and no one’s going to talk about this because the fishing industry would be killed by it so I’ve moved to land-based proteins in the most part with clean sources something radically different than I’ve ever been in my life I mean I haven’t had anything of that nature since I was 17 but I want to be healthy and be alive and the world has changed so you have to adapt with it so I really recommend anyone listening get a medal Steph thanks nothing it’s a little bit of blood and know where you are because so many people are misdiagnosed with the variety of elements and it’s it’s these metals that are now so much a part of our environment and getting into our blood and pushed into ourselves but you can get it out and there’s a man named dr.
