“Your passion is for you, your purpose is for others. Your passion makes you happy. But when you use your passion to make a difference in someone else’s life, that’s a service, that’s a purpose, and that’s the hand. ” [22:54]

“Being able to reflect and observe the different voices inside of us is a great place to start your self-awareness because the biggest challenge is that most of us don’t know what we’re listening to. Most of us don’t even know that there is more than one voice inside of us.” [32:28]

“The highest form of empathy, love, and compassion is to meet people where they already are, rather than expecting them to change.” [50:49]

  1. What a bizarre interview. It’s not helpful to have a host who has not achieved a higher state of consciousness to interview a highly enlightened person. This is literally like the white guy interviewing the brown guy and the white guy struggling to understand anything beyond what is concrete. Western culture doesn’t recognize the spiritual generally speaking. As such, these philosophical ideologies are too complex for Tom to wrap his brain around. This is the strangest interview i have ever watched, almost comical.

  2. Where do you go when you have lived your life and you no longer have any direction or imagination left? Not a good place to be in

  3. Nice Video clip! Forgive me for chiming in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard the talk about – Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (should be on google have a look)? It is a good one of a kind guide for finding your true calling and achieving success without the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my BF after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical success with it.

  4. LISTEN!!!love yourself…love god love the natural state of things created by god..use mortal clothe like cotton mortal food mortal furnitures…god created adam as the most perfect being he has created..n breathed in al rooh..his soul.. small pc of his soul in each human n adamite… sons of adams ..god asked all previous creation including angels to bow to adam as an image of god n his most perefect creation n we have a pc of god in us… be happy with your creation.dont go to burning man.dont burn man…love men.. read arts n literatures that r wrote or produced in not read angry expression or hateful art from nietzsche or angry phylosophers … do not buy fake promises from scientist who hate god who wants to alter human human n food or earth… it only cause cancer with immortal substance like plastic n preservative

  5. Wow…Jay explains things so beautifully, clearly and powerfully. I can listen to him all day. And Tom is excellent as always!

  6. I want to share some life changing Truth out of The Book of all books that changed my life, that Book is The Bible, The only one true Word of GOD! I don’t know if you heard of being born again (John 3:3,5) but if not I urge you to have a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and become born again! The Bible says we were made by Him and for Him, without a relationship with Jesus Christ you will not feel complete. I am a born again Christian who’s been baptized in Jesus Name and filled with The Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues and let me tell you there is nothing more fulfilling or beautiful! I believe the Rapture of the saints and the second coming of Jesus Christ is going to happen soon! People may say "Preachers have been saying this for years, but if one understands Bible prophecy you will see that we are truly at the point of HIS return! This life is short in fact James 4:14 says "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” People need to realize that there is a life after this one. You will either spend eternity with Christ or be separated from Him forever in the Lake of Fire where there will be eternal punishment and torment. People may also say if GOD is love then why would He send people there?…Well I heard someone say once metaphorically you have to step over the dead body of Jesus to get to Hell! Meaning GOD loved the world so much (John 3:16) that He became a Man (Jesus Christ, GOD incarnate) Jesus Christ died a cruel and painful death for us to be reconciled back to Himself, that is GOD (for Jesus was fully Man (Son of GOD) and fully GOD, born of a virgin by The Holy Ghost.) He shed His blood for us (for without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins, Hebrews 9:22) for the forgiveness of our sins if we chose to accept Him, for He is the ONLY Way to have eternal life (John 14:6)! If you want to be to be saved Acts 2:38 says "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” You can see in The New Testament the common theme that one received The gift of The Holy Spirit was they spoke in other tongues (Acts 10:45-46, Acts 19:6) But you must believe in your heart! Romans 10:9 says "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” As far as Spiritual gifts they are still for The Church today, so do not let anyone tell you the gifts have ceased! Being Pentecostal (I attend a United Pentecostal Church) and I love being Pentecostal, I want to say that there is nothing wrong with showing emotion and when I feel GOD’s presence through His Holy Spirit, emotion is not something I have to put on on or manufacture but comes naturally! King David danced before the ark in The Old Testament! I love to see people dance, run or shout in Church! It’s awesome! Also I want to tell people do not be deceived by satanic deception like evolution, this is a very false theory, I would direct you to, also Ray Comfort’s evolution Vs. God
    Other satanic deceptions like practicing witch craft, psychic readings, etc. are sinful acts for Deuteronomy 18:10-12 says "There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”
    If you are practicing these things repent and turn to Jesus Christ! Also things that some are promoting like transgender or homosexuality, saying that it’s fine and going beyond that some so called churches are saying it’s okay, it’s not it is a Biblical sin and things like abortion is not right! You even see things like yoga being practiced by Christians, which is not something The Church should be taking part off (see this for why:,) but back to the point, the Good News is Jesus Christ is both Lord and GOD and can deliver anyone from living a life full of bondage including homosexuality or whatever sin you are struggling with in your life! He can heal the broken hearted woman who has had an abortion if they repent! People living in sin do not see it as bondage but it is, it is only because they are living in spiritual darkness that they do not see themselves as being captive to sin. The Bible says you are a slave to whatever controls you! Some may say to people struggling with cross dressing, homosexuality, etc. “live your truth and be free”, well there is only one Truth and that is Jesus Christ, John 14:6 says "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” He is the only Way to eternal life and He came to set the captive free! Not to pick on anyone person as we all have sinned and have come short of the glory of GOD and we all need Jesus Christ and His forgiveness as only He can forgive!
    I once lived a life of alcohol, drugs and fornication but I can testify about the grace GOD showed me and delivered me out of the mess I was in! Thank GOD for His love! Always remember GOD loved the world so much that Romans 5:8 says "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Also remember if your suffering with a sickness in your body GOD can heal that too, He is the Great Physician!

    GOD Bless to all who read this as you trust in HIM!

  7. I wonder why Jay Shetty doesn’t take the time to credit the original sources of a lot of his quotes, memes and stories. It’s not an ethical business practice for sure.

  8. I LOVE Impact Theory and think that Tom is super inspiring, but this guy is FULL OF SHIT!


    This man is a fucking con artist!

  9. Did anyone else notice how tom just cut across jay at 36:38…..he was just about to say something i really wanted to hear!!

  10. I’m not what I think I am I’m not what you think I am I am what I think you think I am. Wow. It did blow my mind and it’s so TRUE.

  11. Appreciate video content! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you heard about – Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (do a google search)? It is a great one off product for finding your true calling and achieving success without the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my friend after a lifetime of fighting got amazing success with it.

  12. Love this video. Thank you for helping how to work on myself . I hear a lot of the same things with others however you deliver the message with training.

  13. I’ve seen many interviews done by Tom. He doesn’t seem blown away as I’ve seen him with other ppl. Usually ppl would say one mindblowing own quote that captivates him. He doesn’t seem too amazed. Maybe because he heard the same things from him on social media, so nothing was new to him.

  14. basically just help your mum do the shopping take the rubbish out, etc- it will come to in the service of others esp your mum!

  15. These guys are great, but seeing how they make money off of this, it makes you wonder if they are not laughing at us once the cameras stop rolling.
