I recently saw the documentary movie on Netflix – Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru and was very pleased with the movie. It’s filmed on set of the 2014 ‘Date of Destiny’ seminar, which is a yearly event hosted by Tony Robbins. The 6-day (12 hours a day) seminar costs almost $5,000 to attend.
For someone who has attended their fair-share of motivational and business seminars, this is like no other I have ever experienced. The energy and raw emotion from the audience is overwhelming at times and I found that often the stories told by audience members were relatable to my very own experiences, so much so that I felt he walking me through the process of healing through my television.
The viewer is first introduced to behind-the scenes footage, which showcases how the event comes together. The diligence and structure depicted by Tony Robbins and his team on every single detail is quite impressive and is an amazing example of the importance of planning & structure is in your life and path to success. Throughout the process, Tony Robbins and his team verbally visualize have they see event.
Before long, you become a spectator in this seminar, where one after another Tony Robbins takes them through a mind journey to help them achieve that ‘Ah Ha’ moment we all strive for in life. To have an epiphany of what’s holding you from taking life, finding clear insight into where that obstacle initiated from and being given the ability to see it from another angle.
A powerful scene in the movie is one scene where Tony Robbins asks those who are suicidal to stand up. 2 people stand – a woman and a man -, who both explain their thinking of why they feel they deserve more. As he walks them through talking them explaining why they are deserving of love and success, you start to see that ‘Ah Ha’ moment in how they start to speak, express themselves and their stance.
I recommend this movie and welcome you to come back and share your opinion! We would love to hear from you.
