Embrace Receiving, Transform Your Life
February 27, 2024

Are you ready to shed your ego, deepen your connection with your higher purpose, and serve others with unwavering dedication? If so, it all starts with adopting the mindset of a student in every interaction. Today marks the official release of my latest book, “Lessons From Abdul,” where I unveil ten transformative life and leadership principles inspired by my unconventional childhood mentor, Abdul. These principles empower you to cultivate growth from within.

By keeping our hearts open and receptive, we unlock the potential to uncover more about ourselves, our purpose, and how we can authentically inspire others. In an exciting turn of events, I’ll be stepping into the guest seat on a podcast interview with my dear friend and renowned engagement influencer, Marc Schwantes.

During our conversation, I dive deep into the pages of “Lessons from Abdul,” exploring the obstacles that hinder us from receiving from others. I also share foundational lessons and practical solutions designed to help you break through your barriers. Moreover, I open up about a personal challenge I’m currently navigating, putting these very lessons to the test in real-time.

This interview isn’t just about my book; it’s about transformation — a conversation with the power to reshape not only your life but also your leadership journey. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to grow alongside us!


Welcome to Season 4 of Inside Out Leadership!

It is better to give than to receive.

We have all grown accustomed to this ancient nugget of wisdom. However, if everyone were focused solely on giving, would there be anyone left to receive?

There are numerous reasons why leaders (and individuals in general) often struggle when it comes to receiving help, words of praise, and unique perspectives.

In my highly anticipated new book, “Lessons from Abdul:  The Hidden Power of Receiving from Anyone, Anytime” I delve into the seven key factors that frequently hinder leaders from embracing receptivity and provide the ten transformative insights I gained from my unconventional mentor, ABDUL.

These valuable and timely lessons will help you to overcome these barriers and become a more genuine and open receiver, an as a result, help you cultivate the capacity to be a purposeful and selfless giver.

During Season 4, Episode 2, I will be interviewed by my good friend to provide valuable insights on my new book. This lays the groundwork for embracing receiving from anyone, anytime, which in turn leads to profound self-discovery, purpose, and the capacity to inspire others.
