Hey Ass Kickers!
Today’s guest is Orly Wahba, the CEO of Life Vest Inside. She’s here to talk all about how kindness is the greatest tool we have for empowering ourselves – and as Director of Kindness Boomerang, CEO of Kindness USA, and the author of Kindness Boomerang, Orly is a great person to share her insights on the subject.
As you’ll hear from Orly, who you are means a lot more than what you do, and we need to recognize that we all have the power to resolve the issues that our society is facing today.
In this episode you’ll learn:
- How Orly’s own battle with depression made her want to serve others (4 minutes and 20 seconds)
- It was her obsession with giving to others which in turn healed her (6:15)
- Kindness isn’t something you do – kindness is something you live (10:14)
- Does kindness towards others promote self-kindness as well? (18:59)
- How giving can feel like sacrifice if you’re not coming from a the right place (22:30)
- Kindness is the common thread that unites us all (32:02)
I hope you enjoy this episode of the podcast with Orly Wahba. Let’s start exercising our eye muscles to see the kindness that exists in our world!
