183: 3 Reasons Why You Should Watch “I Am Not Your Guru” (Even If You’re Not A Tony Robbins Fan)

Friday night, Gisele and I stayed in and watched I AM NOT YOUR GURU, the new documentary about Tony Robbins on Netflix.

To be honest, I wanted to watch something else but Gisele was insistent because Tony is one of her heroes. And I have to say that it was one of the most engaging and inspiring movies I’ve ever seen.

Here are three reasons why you should watch it (even if you’re not a Tony Robbins fan):

1-Advanced Communication Skills

In the movie, you’ll watch Tony go through some unbelievable situations with some of his attendees.

You’ll watch how Tony is able to cause a state change in the person he’s speaking with. It’s simply incredible to watch Tony navigate tough situations with empathy, grace and control.

You’ll also see how he’s able to help people with their struggles on the spot. Although I’ve enjoyed some of Tony’s CDs in the past, I’ve never been to one of his events. And I wouldn’t call myself a “true fan.”

But after watching, him in action at his Date With Destiny seminar, I’ve made it a point to attend one of his live trainings to experience it for myself.


If you’re like me, you might sometimes tend to overanalyze things. (Or always overanalyze things haha)

When you watch this movie, you’ll get a first hand look at how simply the human brain is wired.  …and how it’s really the “little things” that make the biggest differences.

I think you’ll find this especially inspiring! It’s being surrounded by like-minded people, making friends, exercise, trust and having a plan is. You just may come away feeling like, “I can totally do this!”

3-Motivation And Inspiration

Which is weird …because it’s not a motivational movie. Motivation is not the point of it at all, actually.

It’s really an inside look into one of Tony’s $5,000 Date With Destiny events.

But I challenge you to watch it and not feel motivated and inspired. I shed a few tears watching as well.

What I advise you to do is to watch it and immediately after write down your health & fitness goals for the week. And make them habit-based like: I will take a walk every day or I will workout with weights 3 times this week.

Anyway – I just wanted to share it with you.

I think it’s only on Netflix for now and totally worth the watch.

Have a great week!
