Love Everyone Always with Bob Goff
“HUMBLE VOICES CARRY FURTHER IN THIS WORLD.”
All of us want to be loved and accepted. It’s how we were brought into this world, and it’s how we should be spending our lives.
I’ve learned that if you want to get love you have to learn to give it, but it’s not always that easy.
I’m sure you’ve found yourself around people who you may find creepy or that may hate on you for seemingly no reason.
Your knee jerk reaction is probably to respond with an attack back, but that does the opposite of what anyone wants.
Hate breeds hate and love breeds love.
At the end of the day, how do you want to be remembered? I know I want to be remembered as someone who lit the way with love, compassion, and really tried to understand everyone I encountered.
On this episode of The School of Greatness I’ve brought you someone who has been spreading nothing but love around the entire world: Bob Goff.
Bob is one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met. He used to be a lawyer and has since turned his life into one designed to spread love. He is a New York Times best selling author, a diplomat, and a phenomenal speaker.
He’s helped build schools and shelters around the world. He’s saved lives by educating witch doctors in other countries, and has even become the Uganda consolut to the US.
This was easily one of the most interesting interviews I’ve ever done.
Bob’s mission is one I truly believe in.
And believe it or not despite everything he’s done he still gets haters on social media.
We discuss how he deals with those haters, how you can love deeper, and how you can overcome your insecurities.
Discover all of that and much more, on Episode 622.
