Talking with Titans – Tony Robbins Podcast

In this installment of the podcast, Mary Buckheit and Tony Robbins sit down with Tim Ferriss. Tim Ferriss’ 4-Hour Workweek was a celebrated bestselling book that focused on one’s mindset and actions regarding work. This interview discusses his new book, Tim Ferris’s Tools of Titans.

Tim Ferris had obsessive compulsive disorder, and he initially used physical exercise to work out his compulsions as a kid. He struggled with OCD and other mental health issues, and has publicly written about his battles with depression and suicidal thoughts.

Although he was undergoing a dark time in his life while attending Princeton University, Tim Ferriss realized his future was in his hands. He decided to veer off his academic path temporarily to pursue different professional endeavors. By delaying his graduation, he sought out a life plan that worked more effectively for him. However, before he left Princeton for his hiatus, he had to deal with lots of red tape from the faculty at his school. This caused him to return to his suicidal thoughts. A chance call from his parents helped change his mind and snap out of his thoughts of self-harm.

It was at that point that Tim Ferriss decided to dive back into the world of athletics, to put some pressure off his mind. He worked to get out of his own head by diving into Asian-inspired kickboxing classes. During this time, he started the practice of “fear-setting,” or writing down the thing that was scaring him at the time. He would list the worst possible outcome of his fears, what he could do to minimize the likelihood of these outcomes and identify what he could do to get back on track if these fears came to fruition.

This exercise showed Tim that he was capable of working past his hang-ups. What’s more, he wanted to include stories of his struggles in his recent book to show others that they’re not alone in experiencing feelings of self-deprecation or thinking about self-harm.

Tony has experienced similar periods in his life in which he felt deeply flawed and unsure of his future. He and Tim discuss strategies to getting back on track and putting energy back into their own improvement, instead of focusing on their shortcomings.

Tim Ferriss encourages listeners to ask themselves, “What’s the worst that could happen?” and “What are the assumptions I’m making, and how can I test them?” By answering these questions, one can often overcome the mental fears and insecurities holding them back. Tim Ferriss says this is crucial to succeeding in any industry.

How does your environment affect you, for better or for worse?

Think about where you feel happiest. It’s likely somewhere open and inviting, like your favorite room in your home with lots of windows or a local park. On the other hand, what type of environment causes you to live in a depressed or stagnant state? Your mind probably jumped to a dimly lit cubicle or busy city street.

Where you spend your time directly affects how you feel. When we look further into how our surroundings affect us, we find that this same notion has been studied for centuries. Philosophers used to wonder this same question – how are we impacted by our surroundings – and today, modern research is able to back up these claims.

There’s data out there supporting that people who are exposed to nature more often are less stressed at work. It’s also proven that the way we interact with our environment influences how we understand it. For instance, when given a map, travelers think about their relationship to space in terms of their proximity to objects, whereas when traveling without a map, people think more about how they physically move through a new space and their personal relation to the area.

The way we feel, think and develop a sense of self is closely tied to how we feel about our surroundings. Where you spend your time has the power to shape who you are as a person, which shouldn’t be taken likely. Choose environments that empower you to become the best version of yourself, instead of places that make you feel sad and stagnant.

Neil Blumenthal was one of the executives who launched the successful eyewear company, Warby Parker, in 2010. The company has been a massive success, in large part because their business model allows them to offer high quality eyewear at affordable prices. This concept attracted people, and the brand was able to provide something else that would quickly help their brand build an internationally acclaimed reputation — an incredible customer experience.

At the core of the Warby Parker success story is the brand’s commitment to creating a masterful customer service experience. In this episode of the Tony Robbins podcast, you’ll hear a detailed account from Neil Blumenthal about the customer-centric strategy and foresight that was critical in establishing Warby Parker as a billion-dollar business.

Neil Blumenthal and his cofounders found that glasses were ridiculously overpriced. After a friend mistakenly left a pair of $700 glasses on an airplane, they decided there was a gap in the market that they could be filling. Why should people pay ludicrous sums of money just to be able to see?

As the Warby Parker founders began planning the company, they decided that customers needed to be their main focus. They felt very much like they were entering into a David-vs.-Goliath-style battle. There were already tons of companies successfully selling glasses, but Neil and his team believed they could deliver something more meaningful to people.

The founders initially believed they could entice people to buy glasses online without ever trying them on. But as they asked test groups if they’d buy glasses this way, people couldn’t get behind the concept. When Neil and his team realized there was another way, sending glasses to customers’ homes for them to try on before making their purchase, they realized they could satisfy their client base and still make a great profit.

The home try-on program became a massive part of Warby Parker and gathered them tons of incredible press. Within three weeks of launching, they hit their first year’s sales target. They did so well that they were able to donate one pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair they sold.

In building the business, they wanted to help their customers obtain affordable, stylish eye care options, but they relished in also helping those around the world who were unable to buy the glasses they needed.

By letting their potential client base have a say in how their business operated, they were able to not only become wildly successful, but donate millions of pairs of glasses all over the world.

Do you want a better relationship?

Think about how it felt when you first got together with your partner. There was excitement. There was passion. There was a mutual sense of appreciation and love. Is your relationship still like that?

Over time, our romantic relationships can change. We become familiar with our partner and often take them for granted or vice versa. Although this type of relationship can be comfortable, we often feel that a spark is missing. We get bored. We stop giving our relationship the attention it needs to truly thrive. We neglect to give our partners the support and affection they’ve become accustomed to. Over time, if left unchecked, this can destroy a relationship.

You could let this pattern of stagnation continue, or you could choose to actively find ways to make your relationship better.

Start by addressing your expectations and learning how to make positive changes in a relationship. It all begins with the idea of expectations. When you met your partner, you didn’t expect much of them. You were thrilled to simply spend time with them and get to know them. You appreciated them for who they were – flaws and all. But over time, you needed more. You two took on more responsibilities together, you came to depend on them for more and you might have even placed unspoken expectations on them because you believe they should act, think or behave a certain way.

Suddenly, it’s as if the differences that once brought you together are now tearing your relationship apart, but it doesn’t need to be like this. Learn how to reevaluate your expectations and appreciate your partner with new eyes. Instead of getting frustrated with them for doing things differently than you, learn to feel a sense of gratitude that their different approach to the problem complements your own.

If you’re able to shift your mindset and approach your relationship from a place of love and appreciation instead of frustration, your relationship will continue to grow. However, if you’re unable to leave your negative mindset behind, you’ll continue existing in a state of discontent with your partner until the relationship eventually dies altogether.

When you feel anger or disappointment starting to build, take a step back and focus on changing your state. This could be through doing something as simple as taking a walk, drinking a sip of water or making a joke with your partner. This break from the moment will improve your emotional and physical state, causing you to diffuse the situation and re-enter with a mindset of gratitude and adoration.

You can feel 100% sure about what you need from a relationship, but the thing is, a relationship involves two people. That’s why there will always be uncertainty in relationships, because you can’t always predict the needs and desires of someone else. You can’t control how your partner will react to stressful situations or how their emotions will change from day to day, just like they can’t understand or anticipate your needs at all times.

Living with uncertainty in relationships can be challenging, but in the end, it can actually make you stronger. That is, if you’re willing to fight off the urge to build walls. Uncertainty causes some people to pull away from their partner, ultimately creating tension and distance in the relationship. You have to fight off the urge to hide when you feel it coming on – instead of pulling away, give in to the unknown and accept uncertainty.

It is only when you give up feeling like you need control over every aspect of your relationship that you can experience true joy. Choose trust and faith in times of uncertainty and you’ll never falter. To do this, you have to be present with your partner and learn to communicate openly. This will ultimately strengthen your relationship and do away with some of the uncertainty you regularly deal with.

Lastly, always believe that your partner has the best intentions. If you fully love this person and want them to know they can trust you, why wouldn’t you assume the same of your partner? Commit to giving without getting. Give love, give appreciation and give joy to your partner without expecting anything in return. Once you start to receive joy from seeing your partner living a fulfilled, loved existence, thoughts of uncertainty will banish and your relationship will flourish.

How to Make the Decision to do the Impossible – Tony Robbins Podcast

The fear of failure affects millions of people around the world – whether they admit it or not! Many people have big dreams, but they fail to act because they’re so afraid of disappointment. In this episode of the Tony Robbins podcast, Tony, Mary Buckheit
and Siri Lindley discuss how to overcome fear of failure to pursue your greatest passion.

Siri Lindley is a top-tier athlete who graduated from Brown University. After playing three collegiate sports, she graduated and became the number one triathlete on the planet.

Top athletes can be a prime example of overcoming fear of failure. Olympians decide from a young age that they are willing to compete with people from across the globe to be the best in their sport. What drives these people to pursue excellence? What’s their mindset like? Whether you’re an athlete or a business owner, you have to learn how to overcome failure. Because no matter what, you will fail. You might fail hundreds of times. But the failures don’t matter. Instead, it’s how you react to these failures. Whether you move forward or not after a great disappointment is what defines you in your field.

So how do you go from taking a seemingly impossible goal and making it real? Whether you’re applying this to your personal or professional life, you will learn how to build sustainable success in anything you pursue.

Like many people, Siri doubted herself. She didn’t know what she was capable of after graduating college. She felt alone without a team. After learning about triathlons, she immediately knew she would take part in this incredible challenge. Although she was in pique physical shape, she didn’t have much experience swimming but she didn’t let that deter her interest in the event.

Siri’s dreams were monumental. Initially, her training wasn’t promising, but she still told her friends and family that she wanted to become the best triathlete in the world. She experienced bitter failure the first few races she took part in. But what makes Siri different than the other competitors that failed that day? She persisted.

Even though she didn’t win those first few races, she recognized the hunger that triathlons brought out in her. She was excited to try again and would do anything to make it happen. Siri recognized that she never wanted anything more in her entire life. Although she was a terrible competitor at first, she was willing to put in the work it took to become an incredible triathlete.

The single most important ingredient for success is hunger. Overcoming failure is an essential skill you’ll need to learn on your path to success. And if you’re like Siri and have a huge hunger for your passion, you’ll recognize that fear of failure is not nearly as terrifying as the fear of not trying at all.

You might not realize it, but what you think about on a consistent basis becomes your reality. That’s because our beliefs become thoughts, which eventually turn into action. This can be incredible if you have empowering beliefs, or devastating if you give into negative, limiting ones.

If you’re looking to improve your life, the first step is to start by destroying your negative beliefs. Objectively examine how you feel about different areas of your life. Where do you stand financially? How’s your professional growth? What’s the state of your personal relationships? If you find that you have negative thoughts about these subjects, it’s time for a change.

Negative beliefs are often limiting and untrue. If you continually tell yourself you’re not smart or experienced enough to get a promotion, you won’t. Only when you reframe this thought into a more empowering belief will you be able to make true progress.

You can start working on this by questioning what’s real, and what’s a limiting belief. Why do you think you’re not experienced enough for a promotion, despite having the correct qualifications? Are there facts to support this, or is this coming from a place of fear and insecurity?

Once you’re able to replace your negative beliefs with empowering thoughts, only then can you make progress and find fulfillment in life.

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Love is blind”? Is love blind? What does the expression mean to you?

Love is one of the most powerful emotions on the planet – it can give us incredible highs and devastating lows. But oftentimes, when you first meet a new partner, you feel nothing but fireworks and butterflies. Why? Well, it’s because the early stages of attraction can make us feel relaxed and less critical of our new partner.

Think about it. When you first get together with someone, it’s true that love is blind. The other person has character flaws, but you only see the good in them. You’re leaning so deep into the attraction that you don’t have time to hold them up to your expectations or judgments – you just let your heart run its course. You’d go out of your way to make your partner happy, because seeing them in a positive state fuels your source of love and makes you feel necessary and wanted.

During this phase of the relationship, you’re not thinking about what your partner is giving you versus what you’re offering them – you’re only feeling the sense of strong love and doing whatever it takes to sustain this emotion.

So, why does this period of the relationship end? Even if you’re still wildly attracted to your partner, over time we start to become more critical. That’s because your mind takes over and logic eventually rules out over the heart. You begin to notice the little things they do that annoy you. You overanalyze small disagreements and they morph into large arguments in your mind. You develop expectations, and when your partner doesn’t meet them, you feel hurt and disillusioned.

Over time, these feelings can lead to tension and resentment in the relationship. If this starts to happen, take a moment to yourself. Communicate with your partner. Greet them with honesty, openness and love. Remember why you fell in love with them in the first place. Decide that if this is someone you want to keep in your life, that you need to revert back to those feelings of nonjudgmental love and adoration. This will help you to rekindle the balanced polarity, or attraction, in your relationship.
