Tony Robbins shares his BIGGEST “splurges”
Well since we're on the topic of tony robbins and dean uh i picked actually a tony robbins clip for us to watch i picked two of them actually um because i don't think tony gets enough attention on this channel like we've covered him once but he really is the poppy of self-help and he you know what he loves the most.
What excites me most to see a person die so you know he excites him most do we have emotional music to go with this because yeah here's our tony robbins clip i wasn't i was born a giant but i'm now just an average man yes yeah no he does this thing oh my god he.
Does it all the time he does it so much that even dean glaciosia started to like clap like he's like i clap too much my my poor fingies um okay so this clip is called tony robbins my biggest splurge now for me i tried to think when i before i even saw this i was like what was my biggest.
Splurge as of late you know taking a couple trips that's probably a splurge anytime i vacation it's a splurge because it's like i you know this is not an investment but i want to do it anyways or when i first bought my car i don't have any more i sold it but before i bought my first car that was a splurge i thought um.
I don't know what else that's pretty much my maybe a dinner like a fancy dinner or something that's probably my top splurges what about you me currently like dental procedures they tend to like cost a while a lot unfortunately um okay but uh i don't know like my biggest splurge.
Uh i don't i don't know if it's like necessarily a splurge but i like to buy clothes that that will last i'm more of a quality over quantity person i have very few clothes but um i like to to get like decent things because i hate like bad quality clothing but i don't like.
I don't splurge if anything is like fifty dollars is that considered like a splurge it depends on your idea of sports there's no there's no uh you know requirements um this is cam when she wears cheap clothing what am i wearing yes yeah yeah use that pretty much it's just.
It's just that they i i noticed just how and this happened recently with something because i was like okay i'm not gonna need this so i'm just gonna buy i'm just gonna need it once i'm just gonna buy it like in a bad thing and then i had to work.
Several times and they just they disintegrate like within a week oh i just cannot stand the waist to me it's like complete outer waist i hate it i know we need to all learn how to sew our own clothes by you know the next couple years when all these machines go under even though they're like super successful.
Um okay so dental work i hear clothes vacation dinner all right we're gonna see what tony splurge is all right let's see i'm sure it's gonna be really relatable to all of us well i've had a few but you know at different stages of your life what feels like a splurge changes and i think it's.
Really important never to lose the awe that you felt when you suddenly had a privilege or an ability i can remember when it was a big deal that i could go to all you could eat smorgasborg and be able to take three friends and pay for it it was a huge splurge but one of the biggest splurges happened when i was about 24 25 years old i built a company.
And become pretty successful and i had a really amazing economic month where i made a half a million dollars a month which was incredible at the time and i always wanted to go to fiji i always wanted to have an island i couldn't afford it i saw an opportunity place i loved one little condo.
He's like i always wanted an island but i couldn't afford it at 22. sorry when he didn't he say that his story was like he was just this like poor janitor and blah blah blah like how how does he always want an island as a like janitor because i never even i kind of got a dream of having a house at this point i.
Know i've given up hope i'm like well you know it was nice thought when i was five to think i deserved and you know could afford housing yeah i don't know like how i've never ever crossed my mind that i could possibly have an island.
Well apparently you're not thinking big enough cam that's what he'll teach you in you know the 20 thousand dollar dream bigger mastermind he always wanted an island yeah do you know who has an island johnny depp johnny depp i did know that.
Not amber yeah not ambrose she's planning to get an island what was the word that they kept debating in the court case it was like promising the donations it well he he made a half a million dollars back in like the 80s i guess because that'll.
Be when he was in his 20s and he was like okay now i'm now that i'm the you know the wise sage of 25 uh i guess i'll pursue my dreams now he had a really uh weight place i loved i wanted to just try and buy one little condo at this place so i put some money in as a small investor in this resort and then my partners went upside down but i wasn't.
Willing to let it go and i found a way hook his partners went upside down he did it yeah i was wondering what does he mean he just stumbled like my partner did they have a little a little bromance what happened there unknown he's gonna he's gonna stay away from that his small investment his.
Company was solid right side up but his partners they're idiots figure out how to keep it i'm sorry sorry but like did he want to buy an island with half a million dollars and even i know that's like well i guess he wanted a condo on the island but again like okay he was 25 so he already had.
Been to fiji at this point i guess and had decided he fell in love with it like yeah the way he tells the story like you said like he was poor for so long and then you know over time and all this hard grinding work he became rich and famous it's like at 24 5 i think most people are still in the beginning stages of their career not.
Making half a million months at 24 if i could just not go into my overdraft like i consider that month a success yeah same yeah sorry we're talking different levels i know like this is not tony robbins level of poverty this is like actual okay so his partners went under or went.
Upside down so bankrupt but he's fine but he couldn't like invest i don't know i guess he's saying he couldn't like comfortably invest more at that time because his partners are such fuck-ups i guess okay let's continue let's see what else put it together and make the payments and you know today i have 525 acres three miles of ocean frontage and.
The top resort in the country and i don't even go there very much i don't go there not because i don't love it because my life is so full but i'm so joyous to see people go there and be lit up it's like i don't have to do anything they go to the resort and their lives are changed by being with these fijian people in this beautiful environment.
Probably the biggest splurge outside that i can remember i called my mom and i always want to live on the beach and i said mama come down to huntington beach i want to show you this condo i'm looking at him i'm struggling should i do this or not and i'll never forget she came down and looked around and she goes oh you've got.
To do this and you look right on the smell the fresh ocean air you walk to the pier i mean put your feet in the sand because you've got to do it you're sure and she said yeah and i went here it's for you and that moment of just shock at first and then no no you can know and then tears pouring down.
Too you know my mom's been gone now for more than a decade and still one of the most treasured moments of my life so what i found is the greatest splurges i've privileged have a plane do all kinds of things and they all have added value in my life in some way but the greatest splurges are the ones where you splurge in the people you love because.
That has infinite value infinite joy to you certainly splurge on yourself you deserve you work hard but maybe find who else you want to splurge on and find what that feels like it can become a positive addiction in your life because the more you give the more alive you feel so splurge yes but splurge with value splurge beyond yourself and i.
Think you'll find it much more meaningful and a much more joyous life i hate cnbc's make it by the way i'm this guy so his splurge was a condo that at first i don't really understand what the whole story was because he basically said like i want i splurged on the condo but then something happened financially.
And now i own the whole island and now i own some mile some ocean mileage i'm like okay see this is what people i think this is what people mean when they say they hate landlords just imagine being a fijian and being like uh priced out of your own island by tony robbins because he just owned some ocean.
Mileage just a few ocean just a few ocean knots he owns a whole resort there i know a couple that in my real life that got married there semi recently and it was like because tony owns it they're like super fans so yeah that's why they got married there.
Uh interesting um i know where we usually go we're supposed to be going back and forth but um actually my second tony robbins video is related to the fujian island would you like to watch it now yes okay before we move on okay.
So and i want to answer to amiga how many teeth does he have well i will say that he definitely also splurged on dental procedures because those teeth are like all fake everyone's doing dental splurges this month apparently but he was so young in that as well i don't know why but when he was young he.
Looked like a cartoon character and i just i think he still does just no way that he was not he's a larger than life figure as they say i do agree with that um okay so speaking of fijian islands uh here he is on the island now this is a video that was done by business insider that got a billion jillion trillion.
Views um when this reporter who is apparently 18 uh he might be he's i think he's older but he looks young to me gets to go with tony to like live a day in his life on the island and there's some moments where you'll see that it looks like uh the his staff is you know held there.
Against their will i'll just say that oh my god so we can see some of the fijian people that are interacting with tony robbins honor the reporter looks like he's held there against his will yeah yeah and i will just say watching this video i watched this video before i didn't like tony.
Robbins and i remember even back then thinking like wow he really knows how to work the camera as someone who and you probably know too there's certain people that when you film them they know they're they know how to like get more airtime if that makes sense like they know how to like what's gonna be used in the footage like if you just sit there.
And you're you know sitting down and being boring like that footage probably won't be used but if you're like a zany character who's making all these noises and like you know you know that that's the best footage that is gonna be used so i just think he's very good at that tony knows his you know marks i guess.
Yeah oh yeah he is he knows he had a little slip up in his um in his seminar and uh i i it sucks that i cannot show this because i it would be basically he said something made a joke about how.
He was like younger than he is and the the sound guy put like a sound effect was like uh you know like nah like something like that and he was like hey stop that it was like just like a moment of the meaning a little bit because like he definitely did not want that like it was.
Not like a cute stop that that guy's fired very like [__] off like yeah you don't uh you don't put a dampen on my jokes here no jokes i'm the only one who can tell jokes yeah only funny books are worth yeah you know a million dollars jokes good joke.
Okay here we go tony robbins what tony robbins is really like that's what this video is called what tony robbins is really like why rich specifically why'd you invite him he's my bud his name is rich that's why i'm rich filoni senior reporter at business insider tony robbins is a what he likes to call.
Performance coach he's coached people like serena williams mark benioff at salesforce paul tudor jones who's a billionaire investor over the last few years i've had several opportunities to interview him his team reached out to me and said tony is going to be at his resort in fiji he was going to be hosting the winners of shopify's build a.
Bigger business competition so we decided that yeah this would be a great option there's a reminder he's a self helper too marietv in the flesh in fiji her and all these proskys their interaction at one point like in in her.
I think he was one of her his books was coming out and he went on her podcast or on her marietv show sorry um let's remember they don't just have like part they're not just influencers okay yeah um they're different and he was like you know he would kiss her hand or something i was just like this is sleepy.
That was a sleazy moment and she would be like just and i'm like okay kiss me here yeah oops you missed that's what i think would happen yeah she seems pretty happy yeah she seems.
Pretty chill she's she's comfortable yeah that's the thing it's like i'm a woman i support women this is all about empowering women let me go hang out with an accused uh sexual assaulter on his island though yeah what i mean do we know if they stop that just hanging out or mm-hmm i don't know.
I i have like you guys have to understand like i i have gone beyond being a a cynic like what's next you know i like you're not gonna convince me that the women in self-help are not sleeping with them like sorry just i don't know i don't know but i think that they would turn a blind eye.
If it meant more money in their bank account that's all oh yeah absolutely and which they seem to already do anyways okay marie forleo in the flesh petition so we decided that yeah this would be a great opportunity to see what tony is actually like we headed out from jfk in new york city to lax and then from lax we took fiji airways to the.
Main airport in fiji it's called nandi as we're waiting to get on this little island hopper we noticed that on the runway is uh tony's private jet and it has a big tr logo on it i'm gonna admit that i was pretty scared i haven't really been in a plane that small before this is the only time i've.
Ever actually checked the life vest so this tony's little splurge he's ever seen doesn't tony know better just get like a big plane just get a spirit airlines jumbo jet by now god tony come on just for yourself savu airport well it's called an airport.
There was a tiny little shack that was the airport but it was basically a cow pasture from there off to uh namale nimale is tony robbins resort this was one of his first major investments so he was able to get it kind of cheap and then over see there's something sketchy like he's like i.
Bought one condo then some crazy [__] happened then i owned the whole island and it's like wait how what happened it was cheap and it was your first investment ever at 25 you had a half a million dollars now you own the whole island there's something missing there yeah and apologies for the background.
Noise but um i would say um also i have a feeling that this is gonna be one of these situations where it's like the airport was just this shock but then we went to tony's thing and it's like this gigantic mansion you know like yeah that's five stars for sure luxurious yeah totally cold plunges.
Everywhere yeah i like laura's comments like you're just gonna he's gonna be what he really is like like oh well yeah all the cameras are on with his whole entourage of people who just want a competition for spotify he's gonna be definitely genuine in this situation oh yeah tony's always so genuine.
Yeah like this this reporter really is getting the deep the deep story you know he's really putting himself out for this one yeah he's a senior though yeah a senior in high school like what's going on no offense but he looks young last 30 years he's just really built it.
Up into a beautiful resort that's basically in the middle of the jungle by a bunch of coral reefs i thought it was beautiful before he got there too one of our first stops was tony's house well nice to see you on the other side of the world how are you good to see you great good.
To see you too yeah he basically has this decked out hut in like the secluded part of his resort you ready for my morning routine yes perfect so tony has this really elaborate morning routine i thought he was going to kind of give us a demo or something but he said why.
Would i give you a demo and i could just guide you through the whole thing yourself so we started off with priming which is kind of like his take on meditation and yoga begin to think of a moment in your life you could feel really grateful for if you wanted to enjoy it.
Feel it fill up his take on meditation uh i think that what he's doing is technically meditation well priming's gonna be like this there's like a pretty not famous but um one of kiki chanel's videos about mlms they they do this in the sales call of like beachbody zoom call they're like okay everyone time for priming before we.
Do these like cold reach outs on facebook we're not like skin that needs to be primed for foundation like what do you mean prime or vibrators that need to be oh yeah baby and buzzed a little bit i forgot that we need to invent science in order to be in the self-help industry.
So yeah tony must have selected this guy because he's like you know a follower a devout follower secretly or something because yes he's he selected him because he's like a senior intern so he's like okay yeah he's like this guy's ten all right i can manipulate him because like this has been a pretty long.
Video so far imagine business inside of me like oh so we have this like investigative journalist who wants to come like who else do you have on the team it's like do you have anyone that like wants to be a millionaire and like you know worships me secretly okay let me get him.
Yeah anyway so now back to priming right this guy doesn't have like like like sorry we're like i feel like we're snarking on him too much we're like um he doesn't even have like facial hair not yet so he's waiting not quite yet he's got a thrilla in manila shirt on so.
I don't know what that means but just don't want to point it out like a water situation i don't know it's in the philippines that's all i know oh okay okay yeah that was uh he's a cool reporter he's more stupid thai like the new york times he wears a thrilla and manila shirt on tony robbins island business.
Insider baby he's currently being primed for the self-help industry right now yeah they're like hypnotizing him right to make this very good yeah anyways okay with it yeah i'll admit it it was pretty weird but i just gave in totally and was like you know what we came all.
The way to fiji i'm just gonna go all in so after his priming exercise tony took us inside and i was surprised to see his personal trainer billy this incredibly energetic guy who's always it's like i got myself a little ant to teach me how to how to exercise like what i guess compared to tony anyone's.
Small but that's true actually that's true he's surprised he didn't hire like michael jordan's you know seven foot tall coach to teach him yeah okay billy never heard of this guy i never saw him before yeah i made this little cocktail that was called like a an.
Adrenal cocktail or something i didn't really know what it was but i just decided to look at him looking at him drinking it like yeah okay now he's gonna say what i want like the truth serum is out now we got him baby he's like we've poisoned him it's all good it's actually uh antifreeze he'll.
Be dead before dawn sacrifice yeah okay let's see what happens to him does he turn into a monster or something let's see let's find out that looked disgusting drink it and that fueled me for the rest of the.
Day and everything that was to come so next it's time to check out what you will do for the rest of the day what that stuff means all right i didn't eat for the rest of the week and i felt great like imagine me being like just having a coffee and i need like seven coffees to wake up but i have a coffee right like.
This fueled me for the day like no like you know other things nope just a little poison to get you started called the electric taco we're gonna work as a team you tell me when you feel it even if it doesn't hurt just tell me when you first feel it and we'll gradually go up so right now it feels like i'm getting.
Like punched in the chest on both sides tony was saying that this is something that he does essentially every morning and it basically stimulates your muscles to the point where it feels like you're getting a deep tissue massage.
I immediately felt all of the tightness in my back first get really really intense and then loosen up after the electric taco we went to tony's personal gym it was filled with these weird contraptions that looked kind of like something out of saw or a medieval torture chamber if you want we'll put you on the little torture.
Machine equipment he's like i'm so young i've never been to a gym i don't know what those are um it looks like normal gym equipment with like a little bit of weird added for no [__] reason yeah this this guy sounds like he's like.
Too young to be allowed into a gym sorry bro he really does look like he's about to join like the jv basketball team or he's trying out like what i don't know he's there like what is he doing there like making a pr piece for tony robbins that.
We're watching promoting this village i think so i think tony probably paid for this i don't know if he paid for it but he just you know offered a free trip to this guy he's like all right i'll take the free trip wow.
I don't know because this doesn't have anything like factual about it like it just seems like yeah the promotion we're still in his morning we're not even at like anything else but like his morning routine this is like the sixth step on his like oh since i wake up in the morning.
The cold plunge comes at some point because his he's famous for having a cold plunge every morning so that's coming up in a second i hope oh and push push as hard as you can the most medieval looking of all of these things it's called the four minute machine around two minutes in i really didn't think that i could do it.
This is it tony was screaming at me and i just felt like i couldn't embarrass myself there so just driven by uh i think ego i i had to finish it it felt as if i had spent like an hour in the gym tony took us to the next thing that he does every morning which is spend some.
Time in the sauna and then a cold plunge here you go to be honest it felt great basically it's part of the workout because your heart rate is accelerated the whole time you'll find your body really relaxing because you've taken it to such extremes you'll drop down to a different level like if you went meditated now you're.
Going to meditate deep so the week went by we got some great opportunities yeah opportunities to see somebody in action coaching entrepreneurs we realized the [__] is that another another 18 year old from businesses he's being coached like can you send a.
Guy to play reporter and can you send the guy to play like uh being coached because you know i need two of them here for the promotional video he's like i'm i'm drop shipping on amazon i need tips on how to make this a big booming business we'll just meditate every day and eat healthy.
Thank you tony that was worth the flight out here and i was gonna say like i went out with a guy who probably i don't know if i don't think he ever listens to any of the of the coaches or gurus but um he would take like a a cold shower in the morning um.
And that was his version of the of the cold plunge steven does that he does at the end of the shower he'll take a little coldness i'm like i'm out yeah i think that probably works like a coffee just jolts you up yeah but from like that to saying that it has any health benefits.
This guy is the ceo of gymshark what interesting we need to look him up later i had gym shark pants and i liked them but then the like within probably a week of wearing them the gym shark logo like peeled off it was like a sticker and i was like all right i'm less than impressed.
Maybe he sticks it on himself that's why maybe is he a good guy or a weirdo he looks young i'll give him that that's a pretty well-known company to be that young applaud for you sir hold on where's my applause applause for you sir okay.
So should i buy gym shark then because i want it no i just said that stickers peeled off it wasn't good damn it they look good in pictures at least i like outdoor outdoor voices outdoor voices or well.
Lululemon i like sort of but they're so expensive and i only i only got it because someone gave me a gift card one time but that also peels off after a while like the the stitching isn't perfect so i'm like no fabletics okay i haven't tried that i need to get a let's think we have fabletics in europe.
That's a kate hudson's thing just go in the nude you know just work out in the nude let's go back to our roots all right back to jim shark guy ben francis i'm putting him on my list to look up later he looks sketchy so now we're not gonna get sponsored by jim shark ever this is.
This is not a last you know chance they got enough sponsors or they got enough sponsored people that we needed some extra footage that we didn't get to kind of just wrap everything up before we headed back home how you guys doing we were really only expecting five or ten minutes he starts giving us a tour and after just a few.
Minutes he points out something and says did you go to the waterfall have we gone through the waterfall no we didn't make it no okay we should run you off the waterfall will you call them and ask them if they've got my car's broken down i think um i don't like fit in this car so uh five minute trip for his bro it's like i don't know if i can fit into.
His car his car is broken down tony robbins who has a [__] plane yeah i don't think that i think it's all orchestrated to make this guy's experience unique yeah everything is orchestrated very sus to me like i'm just not gonna.
Buy that and how he's on camera like oh yeah uh yeah that car's broken down so like let's just take this like you know special way that i take through my tunnel or whatever yeah come on guys like it's so natural organic yeah that's just part of my day my morning routine yeah i go to the.
Waterfall every morning an adventure that lasted uh over an hour we're almost done here see here's the moments where he's like i'm so good on camera at the top of this mountain was a waterfall it's pretty little.
I really wasn't expecting him to just dive into the water throw his shirt off and then scream like tarzan i dove into the water after tony it's a pretty surreal experience what i got from this last event has he ever swam before that that dive was not very good.
Well he he's not yet at the swimming age but you know um i don't have to watch it look at this what form it's like it's like pain all over he's like screaming but out of pain not like turning yeah he's like i don't know how to swim.
Actually yes what i got from this last adventure was that tony is a guy who if you give him five minutes and you're able to get in front of him if he's able to make a connection with someone he's really going to engage fully in fiji you could tell it's not because there's a [__] camera there and that this benefits him.
And all he has else to do today is get a taco massage and go on the sauna again like come on talk to the ceo of jim shark about nothing i also think that he like i believe him in that but i think that's like his strategy that's what he does you like impress people like everybody yeah that's like guys from impulsive like.
They went to his house and he showed them because he's like okay these are kids let me show them like a toy so he had this oh gosh i don't have the words in english for it he had this like slider down thing like from one thing to another i don't know like from a slide to another yeah yeah it was a.
Slide and he put them all through the slide and they were like oh my god oh my god like you know because kids no um i think like in this case is like impressing him with something else i don't know why because this guy would also enjoy the slide i think um but.
Tony robbins is cool with me he put me on a slide so but i don't think like if he invites bill gates you'd be like okay let me put you through the slide yeah you know i think he just like has a strategy for like people he wants to impress them so that they think of him like oh my god this amazing guy give him favorable.
Coverage i agree i think that's part of his plan too but the cringiest part is coming up now this is the part that really is the takeaway from this video i think all that he's like completely relaxed this is his home turf and i could see that he still kind of had like a kids approach to the whole thing are we on time or am i late they had to.
Catch a flight to australia a group of people who worked at namale had formed a semicircle to sing a traditional fiji farewell song organic and to say goodbye again i'm so sorry but i look forward to coming back home to see all the family again.
It's been a beautiful beautiful trip yeah when you're in tony's presence you kind of get sucked into this he's got a very magnetic personality totally he's not.
For everyone there are plenty of people who wouldn't be into this stuff whether it's through his work or his philanthropy i'm convinced that tony is someone who is a genuine guy yes he's able to make a ton of money because he has like very clearly defined business goals but.
Everything that he's preaching and teaching people he genuinely believes himself so after this trip i've become convinced that anything in his material that he's teaching this is something that he fully believes he's fully invested in and i think that that makes a big difference whether you're in or whether you're out.
Dude yeah i'm sure that was totally organic and it was not planned whatsoever to get everything like that's part of his morning routine everyone sings to me so i can get on my private jet and they can.
Go back to there yeah he said he had this like kids approach uh are we late are we late and he's like oh yeah cause he he makes money because he's so business-minded it's like which one is it does he have a kid's approach like or if you believe in the crazy [__] that you say then apparently it's all good.
Yeah alex jones is also totally legit because he believes what he says it makes all the difference oh my god that was so hard to watch the last part like i can't you can please such a white savior you stole this land from us thank you for this job but i would rather live here without you.
Yeah can i please have my house back you took it um yikes yeah no seriously that was so cringe yeah like what was that meant to show like he's such a humanitarian who i don't know i don't know that was a weirdo that was a weird one.
But that's his island in fiji that was his big splurge in life just a little splurge it's a full full staff of native people singing next year i'm also splurging on an island like out for sure by an island next year okay yeah no he bought when he was 25 so you know just got a little bit of catching up to.
Do that's all i'm just like seven years late but that's fine
