In this special VIDEO episode of The Tony Robbins Podcast, you’ll hear from Tony Robbins, his wife Sage Robbins, and podcast host Mary B., as they reflect on the significance of Father's Day with their new baby and delve deep into the profound difference between being a father and being a dad.
As Tony notes, Fatherhood holds immense importance in society, as it represents one of the most significant roles a person can undertake. While some individuals may have faced challenges in their relationships with their own fathers, others have been fortunate to experience deep and loving connections. Tony takes this opportunity to extend his love and support to all fathers of all kinds, acknowledging the vital role that they play in helping their children grow and thrive, while also touching upon his own personal family history and unique upbringing with multiple fathers. They also get into the impersonal, archetypal father figure and the gifts that masculine energy brings to our lives.
In this heartfelt conversation, Tony, Sage and Mary B. shed light on the complexity and diversity of father-child relationships, recognizing that each person may have their own unique perspective on what it truly means to be a father. They also emphasize the transformative influence fathers can have on their children's lives — and anyone they choose to coach, care for, and mentor — illustrating the impact a warm, loving father figure. Such fathers provide not only material and emotional support to families but also offer unconditional love, guidance, wisdom, and protection throughout the various stages of a child's life.
