Ever wondered what your purpose is? What are your aims and objectives which you would have to fulfil? Or even if you knew, you were confused about how to fulfil them?
To answer these questions, Tony Robbins is here with his fantastic 6-days long event to help you clear you out. The event is called Date with Destiny.
If you wish to know more about the Date With Destiny Seminar by Tony Robbins you have landed on the right article. In this article, I am reviewing the seminar, but before we begin with that, I would like to give you a brief introduction on who Tony exactly is.
Tony Robbins needs no introduction to the masses. He is one of the most well-known personalities and has helped thousands and thousands of people with his knowledge in the field of his work. However, if you are stumbling upon his name for the first time, then let me introduce you to Tony Robbins.
Born on February 29th of 1960, Tony Robbins is an American author, life coach, motivational speaker and what not. He has written several books and papers from his knowledge of being a life coach and a motivational speaker.
The skill bar he sets up is so high that even companies like Google, Intel etc. invite him to hold seminars in order to enlighten their employees.
He has written some best-selling books such as Unlimited Power, Awaken the Giant Within to name a few of them. Robbins runs a certified life-coach institution known as Robbins Research International, under which he holds up seminars and motivation events all around the world.
Thousands of people come to see and watch him enlighten them. Robbins also has audiobooks, all of which are critically acclaimed and has enlightened many people.
Apart from this, Robbins also has a huge business empire which hosts a range of freelance projects, has investments in various sectors, provides wealth management services, nutritional supplements and whatnot.
According to some sources, Robins is involved in the working of more than 31 companies, each of which makes around a profit of billions per year.
Apart from that, he has been honoured by Accenture as one of the Top 50 Business Intellectuals, which is quite a big honour itself. This is in addition with various other honours from prestigious institutions such as Harvard, American Express and various others who are always honouring him for his talent.
Now that we know about Tony, let us get into the details of the course.
Since we have learned about the trainer now, let us see the event details now and what the event packs inside of it. So let us unwind how exactly the event is laid
The event is a 6-day long event. Each day has a different curriculum and each day has new learnings for you to learn.
Day 1: The Preparation
As with everything, you need to learn about the thing first. You need to get an introduction first.
Same as with this event, you will get an introduction about the whole event on the first day. Tony Robbins will give you all the details about the event. This will include things like the course outline, the course schedule, what will you gain from the course and various other things.
Tony will tell you about his ideas to achieve fulfilment and what is necessary to drive.
Additionally, the things covered in this course are as follows :
1. 3 Levels of Mastery
Tony will tell you about the three levels of mastery for humans. These are :
- Cognitive Mastery: This is all about knowing and understanding rather than just knowing stuff.
- Emotional Mastery: This is all about having control over your emotions for yourself and among others.
- Physical Mastery: It requires you to have control over yourself physically.
2. The 6 Human Needs
Tony explains and elaborates about the six basic human needs that you need to fulfil. These human needs are :
- Sense of security
- Expectation of surprises
- Having a feeling of importance
- The feeling of love and togetherness
- Personal and career growth
- The act of giving
3. 3 Decisions that will surely help shape your destiny in a positive manner.
Tony will tell you about how you can change your future just by taking some positive decisions :
- What do we need to focus on?
What do you lack in yourself? What do we want to change? What can change in the future? These are questions you need to ask yourself to get what you want.
- What does that thing mean?
What does it mean for you, and what change will it induce in your life?
- What can we do to achieve it?
What do you need to do to achieve your goal?
Day 2: The Exploration
On the second day of your event, you will be asked up to explore your psyche. You will also be guided and be made aware of the immense power of your unconscious mind.
On this day of the event, I understood that my own behaviours, my deeds and my values change what I will feel and how I will experience each moment of my life.
Tony will tell you about the cycle of meaning. This means that our needs are meant to be fulfilled at a deep level. If it is only fulfilled at the surface level, you will never feel happy, and you would never be satisfied.
Tony also told us about the Emotional Triad. The emotional triad refers to the three main factors which are responsible for changing and affecting your emotional state. These include:
- Physical Factors: Your emotions depend upon what you eat, what you do, how do you sit, how do you spend your day etc.
- Focus: What emotions are you focusing on currently and what not.
- Language: How do you describe your emotion and express it to others around you.
At the end of this event, I knew everything there is to understand about mastering my own self and my own consciousness.
Day 3: The Discovery
This is day 3 of the six day-long events. Tony will tell you to analyse your approach to pleasure and pain and how will you deal with them.
Tony gave us knowledge about the four different categories of human consciousness. These areas following :
- Egocentric consciousness
- Ethnocentric consciousness
- World Centric consciousness
- Spirit Centric
In the Egocentric consciousness, your focus and care are all about your own self. Every baby is born both selfish and narcissistic. But there are some people who may grow older in their age but still behave like a baby and fail to feel and understand what others feel. This leads to a lot of problems in both personal as well as business life.
In Ethnocentric consciousness, you become careful about the people around you like your family and friends. At this stage, you begin to care about those who possess the capability to give you pleasure or pain. A few people fail to get over the ethnocentric stage.
In the WorldCentric consciousness, you begin to care about anyone and everyone, from feeling the sense of pain when someone feels pain to feeling the sense of joy when someone feels joy. They cannot give you a sense of either pleasure or pain. All you feel is an emotional connection.
Lastly, in the Spirit centric consciousness, you begin to care about everything around you from nature to animals and creatures. Only a very few people attain this consciousness level.
Robbins will eventually help you out to overcome the limitations of pain and fear and will bring out pleasure to you.
Day 4: Relationships
Day 4 of the event focuses completely on your relationships. Tony will advise you on how you can set up boundaries to the energy you are putting in your relationships. You can easily develop your very own understanding of relationships by attending this event.
Transformation is one of the most important days of this event. Transformation day will impart you with the values and the particular set of rules which you need to follow in order to survive in this modern world. Without these values and rules, you cannot thrive satisfactorily.
Tony will help you develop a mission statement, and he will also help you create a good action plan for you to use in future. This is the plan which you will work upon to create a better future for yourself.
Day 6: Integration
This one is the last step which you will take in your event to create a better future for yourself. This last step includes establishing a relationship between your mind and your body.
Without proper coordination between your mind and your body, you can never be happy, and nothing can give you a sense of fulfilment in your life.
Now that we know about how the course is laid, let us talk about the pricing scheme of the seminar.
Date with Destiny Pricing
Pricing is the most controversial aspect of this Date with Destiny event. You can even say that the primary source of income for Tony Robbins is this event when you look at the steep pricing you would have to pay for taking this event.
You really need to be an entrepreneur or an already successful businessman to get on the venue and watch Tony Robbins.
The ticket price is divided into three categories, namely Diamond, VIP and General Admission.
The diamond class sits closest to where Tony will be standing on the stage, with VIP a bit further and General Admission being the farthest from Tony.
However, the ticket cost is sky high even for the General Admission ticket. The event will make you shell out a good amount of around $4495, and yes that is so costly.
The General Admission includes :
- Complete six days of access to the event with Tony Robbins.
- Onsite sessions for you to watch and comprehend from.
- Team Breakouts which will make you understand how to work and stay with a team.
- A personally customised life plan for you based on your life, your mindset and your situation.
The next one is the VIP tier. The VIP tier will cost you a sum of $8895. It has all the benefits of the General Admission ticket with the added benefit of a better priority over the General Admission Ticket.
Diamond seating is the priciest option among the three. The benefits of diamond tier include the best available seating in the event. It also includes the expedited registration option for you.
Tony especially has a look-out for the people having the diamond tier. However, to enjoy these benefits, you will need to burn a hole in your pocket and pay out a sum of around $9995.
You must be thinking that if they are charging this much money, they must have been provided with a nice accommodation facility and transportation as your method to reach the venue and stay for six days there. So take care that along with the steep cost of the admission, you need to pay extra for your accommodation and transportation too. So bear that in mind when you are looking to take this course for you.
This Event Will Work For You If:
- You are someone who is very much interested in bringing about self-development.
- You enjoyed the books written by Robbins, and then this event will prove out to be an astounding opportunity for you.
- If you are someone who has seen the Netflix Documentary by Tony Robbins and feel like you can connect with the way he delivers the message.
- If you wish to explore your motivations and desires in a place where you feel safe and surrounded by the like-minded people.
Though Robbins is gifted with the capacity to win over the most sceptical of people the reality that stays unchanged is that most of the programs about self-development functions on one focal point that you get what you put. If you are someone who is not willing to spare around $4000 to $10,000, then this course is not for you.
Yays And Nays
In this section, I have listed the Pros And Cons of this event.
Will It Work For You?
Well, in my opinion, it does work for some people, but if you are someone who is attending this program with a hope that it will alone bring about a massive change in your life, then the chances are that you will be very disappointed.
From my own experience in this event, you will come across a plethora of testimonials from people claiming that they had a wondrous experience and their life has changed a lot for the better after they attended Date with Destiny.
It is astounding to see people literally transforming right before you, but the sad part is these people are a handful. Despite all of this for me, this program could have delivered more though it is promising. I liked the vibe around the room where I saw so many people just like me coming here to watch Tony Robbins and listening to what he is doing.
I even got the chance to meet Tony, and I shared a high-five with him. It was something I liked very much as I have been following Tony for a long time now. Before the event started, as per the Date with Destiny’s website and Tony, they were going to provide us with some answers and/or techniques to excel in life.
Some of these were :
Understanding your purpose
You need to know what you want for yourself.
Find more fulfilment
The ability to be satisfied with everything.
Find more happiness
Finding that inner happiness that you are missing out.
And many other such questions. However, I don’t feel like I got the answer to all of these questions that were meant to be answered. I still felt that the session wasn’t as informative as advertised.
I discussed this feeling of mine with others, and they had the same thoughts. However, the answers and knowledge gained through the event was still a nice and helpful one to me.
Another problem which I felt wasn’t actually a fault by Tony. For example, the day where they discussed relationships was a very good one, and I literally saw that it was already acting up for some people there.
However, I heavily felt the need of having my partner with me to experience the thing completely. But once again, this was something that Tony was not responsible for.
In the end, I felt that the event was good and informative but not as good as they publicised it and how it is shown on his publicity videos. For me, if you have time and money to spare, this course is worthy enough to take. It is good and informative, just not as good as they tell you.
👉What if I change my mind and want to get my money back after booking my slot?
👉Well, you cannot get your money back once you have booked your slot for the event. And considering the heavy amount of money you have to pay, it is advisable that you do not book your slot until you are completely sure that you will attend the event.
👉Are accommodation and transportation included in the ticket price?
👉No, there are no accommodation and transportation facilities provided by the organisers, you would have to pay for them separately on your own.
👉When is the next event happening?
👉The next event would be a virtual event given the situation right now. It will be happening on December 4th this year.
Tony is definitely an incredible public speaker who can bring about an influential and powerful difference in the lives of many people. But a course like this is not possible to be attended by everyone as the admission cost as well as the investment of time is pretty high.
Most of the responses, though suggest that the course is incredibly amazing, but you will also find some of the reviews stating that the event was just overhyped and under-delivering.
Awaken the Giant within the book by Robbins will cover a lot of similar events. But obviously just reading or even listening to the album cannot bring about the presence of Tony himself.
But in the end, the final decision depends upon you. You will learn that you should not rely on anyone or anything in order to bring about a change in your life.
For self-improvement, it is crucial for self-reliance. But obviously, not everyone can pay a whopping sum of $4000 to $7000 for only a 6-day event, and this takes away.
This can prove out to be a life-changing event, but if you are someone who wants to bring about self-improvement, then this might not be the accurate way of doing that because there is no secret or a magical, revolutionary technology to attain that.
What makes you best is you pushing ahead of your issues, and you do not even need the experience to do that.
In my opinion, if you really wish to experience the live vibe of Tony Robbins, it is highly recommended to attend the slightly cheaper and shorter seminar Unleash The Power.
Though it does not go deep in details, it successfully gives in a powerful impact. The seminar will help you walk away with more value.
