Shaun White’s Ultimate Redemption | Tony finds out how this Olympian and X-Games champion made a single decision that led him to greatness
Success leaves clues. If someone has done very well financially decade over decade, they’re not lucky - they’re doing something different. If someone is fit and healthy for 20 years, they’re not lucky - they understand what it takes. They have a strategy that works, and if you follow that path and sow the same seeds, you’ll not only save yourself decades of trial and error, you’ll be that much closer to operating on the level that you want to be. Perhaps your goal is to become so mentally fit that absolutely nothing will stand in your way. Maybe you’re ready to take your physiology to the next level and be in a peak state of fitness. Or maybe you’ve drawn that line in the sand, refusing to live a single day longer in suffering, and are ready to start living a life of happiness, joy and fulfillment. Whatever it is, we can all learn from others who have been there and already overcome the challenges that we are facing. If you want lasting results, you must keep growing. What can you learn by studying others’ paths to success? In this first episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast Peak Performers season, you’ll have a front-row seat as Tony sits down with three-time Olympic gold-medalist Shaun White - who holds the record for most X-Games gold medals and most Olympic gold medals by a snowboarder. Shaun was an unlikely athlete. Born with an actual hole in his heart, he went through several operations when he was just a child. But that hardly slowed him down. He was skateboarding by 5 years old and snowboarding soon after. By 13 he went pro, and began competing in everything from halfpipe to slopestyle, making a name for himself in the X-Games. Along the way, every failure or missed opportunity only fueled his competitive drive, and soon propelled him into the Olympics - where the highs and lows not only took a toll, but ultimately helped Shaun become the athlete, and the man he was truly meant to be. Shaun talks to Tony about his lifelong journey to becoming one of the most successful snowboarders in history, the uphill battle back from devastating injury and a massive loss at Sochi, and the ultimate redemption at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. They delve into what it means to embrace risk, to absolute importance of mental and physical fitness, and why a single decision can lead you down the path to greatness.

Is it time to let go? | Making the difficult decision to end a relationship
How many times in your life have you set expectations for yourself? Perhaps you believed you would have achieved a number of goals by a certain time. Or maybe you expected that you’d be married by a certain age. Or that your relationship would last a lifetime. While it’s admirable to set goals, and aspire to find love and connection, it’s also dangerous to tie our happiness to our expectations. Because when reality doesn’t meet our expectations, we often find ourselves lost, confused and in pain. Welcome back to the Tony Robbins Podcast where we are continuing our breakthrough series - taking you to events like Date with Destiny, UPW and Business Mastery, where you’ll have a front row seat to life-changing transformations.

Tony works with Dano to take a new perspective on his relationship, and to learn how to trade his expectations for appreciation. They delve into what it means to be truly masculine in this trying situation and why loving his partner ultimately means letting her go.
