Stand guard at the door of your mind | Tony Robbins on why disciplining your fears and controlling your focus is important now more than ever
In these times of uncertainty, we need to think critically for ourselves. If we don’t, we’re letting someone else dictate our focus. As Tony likes to quote his mentor, Jim Rohn, we need to STAND GUARD at the door of our own minds. Whatever information you're feeding your mind on a daily basis and you focus upon consistently, you're going to experience as being what life is really about – and if we don't discipline our fears and control our focus, the world will gladly do it for us. It’s your choice what to focus on. In this episode, we are bringing you exclusive content from Tony, recorded years ago as part of his PowerTalk series. And while this is from some time ago, his message is timeless – and extremely relevant in times like these.

Hidden in plain sight | One man’s fight to end human trafficking, and bring light to the darkest side of humanity
Human trafficking is the worst part of humanity, and it’s hiding in plain sight. It’s hard not to ignore it, because it’s so unbearable to think about. When you hear about it on the news, or see it in a movie, most people turn it off, because it’s simply too hard to imagine a child of your own, a sibling, a niece or nephew, godchild, in such a situation. It’s difficult, and it’s dark – and most people don’t want to face the darkness. But one organization, Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), is looking darkness directly in the eye. In the past six years of their existence, they have rescued 3,500 victims and assisted in the arrests of more than 1,500 traffickers around the world through coordinated rescue operations and recovery programs. Their work, and mission, is one that Tony and Sage Robbins are deeply passionate about. In this episode, you'll hear an interview with O.U.R. founder, Tim Ballard, on how they’re working to eradicate human trafficking – and incredible stories of survival and healing.
