Takeaways from Day One of Tony Robbin’s Famous Date with Destiny from Netflix’s I’m Not Your Guru Documentary


Sharing with you takeaways from day one Here are the show notes: Unknown Speaker 0:01 Welcome to Episode 83 of the Davidson hang reflections and lessons from a life worth living podcast. It’s a podcast about me sharing, sort of like an open diary journal, what’s going on in my life, and hoping that you all could get something out of what I share. So, yesterday was day one of Tony Robbins date with destiny, which is a self-development program. I’m sure many of you have heard of Tony Robbins, he’s pretty well known. I would say the probably the most popular person in self-development, personal development, business development space. Yesterday, we had an exercise called the power of effective blaming. We all blame someone in our lives for the things that have happened to us. But when you blame someone else, you make them responsible for what’s going on in your life. If things had God the way gone the way you wanted them to, would your life have really been better? Would you be the person you are today? Life is a balance when you’re in pain, it’s because you’re overvaluing the impact of an event had on the negative side of your life and undervaluing the impact on the positive side. The truth is that life doesn’t happen to us. It happens for us. So it’s only fair to blame effectively. If you’re going to blame someone, you need to blame them for the bad that the good that came as a result of the situation. Blame consciously instead of unconsciously. So. The prompt yesterday was one of the prompts yesterday was what’s an event in your life to have you thought messed up your life, what’s the impact of the life that that event has on your life up until today. So I wrote down my father’s absence for the last 18 years, has helped me be more independent and ambitious, being of service, getting into coaching, life coaching, career coaching, volunteer work, finding a stable partner, and ultimately helping me get married to my beautiful wife, Sammy. My career path, being in sales, having a chip on my shoulder, just trying really hard to be a person where he can be proud of me who can be successful and matter, no matter despite having a lack of a male role model in my life. Or a father more specifically, having a closer relationship with my mom, my sisters experience adventure, travelling the world travelling across to Hawaii, for instance, this not too long ago, being able to have fun, creating the books, the men’s group, the podcasts I produce and being able to go to amazing conferences like this one, the Tony Robbins conference and landmark joining a fraternity, with other males. And the trials or tribulations made me have a really blessed sales career. We have a fulfilled life of traveling to conferences, meeting interesting people and choosing a specific life, a family of stability with the in-laws, for instance. So yeah, just wanted to share with you all this today. It’s been quite amazing to reflect on day one. And it’s crazy to set to think this is just day one. So stay tuned for other insights. I also wanted to share with you some quotes that I thought some other realizations that I thought was extremely beneficial. So I wrote down “Wanting an apple tree is wanting an apple tree to be a pear tree. That’s what we do with others. instead. It would be beneficial for us to understand their true nature and appreciate and respect them. What is unique and special about them brings flavor to your life.” And we all tend to hold on to something but we can all agree that everyone changes everything changes. Change is essentially a part of life and it’s impossible to avoid change. And it’s honestly what makes life so interesting and rich. The differences So I reflected on the concept of us versus them. There are definitely times where I’ve thought about the differences of someone else, whether it’s race or upbringing, whatever the case may be, we all have strengths and weaknesses. And in instead of wanting to be like me, the goal is to be curious instead of judgmental, if I step into their shoes, what would I see? There’s also a concept that Tony talks a lot about called being 100%. responsible. And that’s for our experience, like you’re, like Davidson’s experience of life, no matter how someone else behaves what they say. So I felt a sense of peace and forgiveness. After we did this exercise, it’s a Hawaiian healing prayer call, where you say, I’m sorry, I love you. Please forgive me. Thank you.”

Purpose: I create an empowering context for curious and hungry people looking for fulfillment, experiences, and creativity. We do this by developing their growth mindset, introducing self-love, and powerful group experiences. It results in people with strong boundaries, resilient mental health, and practical life skills

People leave with the ability to land their dream job, have autonomy and flexibility with their lifestyle, travel the world, and create from their heart and soul.


Davidson was once broke, insecure, low-confidence, and frustrated by doing all the wrong activities. Addicted to drugs, validation, and wallowing in self-pity. No relationship to family, and at the mercy of other people’s suggestions and opinions.

It was hell.

After spending $100k hiring different coaches, traveling the world doing workshops around the world, reading>1000 books, and through curiosity, have created the most effective system to remove people from that situation. My life’s work is to bring joy and abundance to people who as on a similar path as I was and bring back the joy and abundance of their life.

Through shared experiences and storytelling, I inspire and model behaviors that lead to a richer, more fulfilled life full of joy, experiences, passion, and ecstasy from the richness of relationships and being able to experience the depths of the human experience.
