Blaming others or situations for our discontent is very common. From where we sit, it often looks like something or someone else is the cause of our suffering. But therapists, coaches and teachers have opened my eyes to see that there is no one to blame, not even myself.
The mindset of blame drains energy and leaves us disempowered. When we shift beyond blame and take personal responsibility, more choices and opportunities arise. You become lighter, freer, and even more successful.
Today’s Man Alive podcast guest is the author of a new book: Radical Responsibility: How to Move Beyond Blame, Fearlessly Live Your Highest Purpose and Be an Unstoppable Force For Good. Dr. Fleet Maull has a wild story. He spent more than a decade in prison. As a Buddhist teacher and senior student of Tibetan teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, he spent his time as the “Prison Monk”, teaching mindfulness to thousands. He also founded the Prison Dharma Network, an international organization that supports Buddhist and contemplative prison ministry, and the National Prison Hospice Association, which develops end-of-life care programs for terminally ill prisoners.
Our amazing conversation focused on…
Things you may not realize that set you up to suffer and give up power on a daily basis
How to shift from feeling victimized to feeling empowered
What it takes to step into the flow that makes life easier and more meaningful
How to fearlessly live your highest purpose
Fleet’s journey of service in his 14 year prison stint
Fleet shares deep wisdom to relieve human suffering. I highly recommend this episode to support you with everything from relationships to success and personal well-being.
