“Kindness is simply helping someone feel less alone.”
Welcome to today’s episode of the True Grit and Grace podcast with special guest Leon Logothestis, aka the King of Kindness. Leon is a renowned global adventurer and advocate for the power of kindness and connection, known for his popular TV series, the Kindness Diaries. Leon holds a unique perspective on kindness, viewing it as a universal gift that transcends financial situations. His experiences, from being bullied to receiving life-changing kindness from a homeless man, have shaped his belief that true wealth lies not in material possessions, but in how we treat others and make them feel valued. He encourages a shift from a mindset of fear and scarcity to one of abundance and compassion, inspiring individuals to spread kindness, regardless of their own circumstances.
Before Leon Logothetis became a global adventurer, TV host, motivational speaker, and best-selling author, he was living an uninspired and disconnected life as a broker in London. On the outside, it looked like he had it all. But inside, he was chronically depressed. He decided to do something radical about it – give it all up for a life on the road.
He embarked on an adventure around the globe, fueled by the receiving and giving of kindness. Through kindness, he discovered that when we start to compare ourselves by our similarities instead of our differences, we start to create a brighter future. On his journeys, he found the essence of humanity and learned about the bonds that connect people worldwide.
In this episode, Leon shares his remarkable journey of traveling to over a hundred countries, with a focus on highlighting the goodness in humanity. Throughout the episode, kindness takes center stage, demonstrating how even a small act of kindness can have a world-changing impact and how kindness is something universally understood.
Amberly and Leon also discuss the importance of bravery and how it can lead to personal fulfillment and help overcome feelings of loneliness. Leon’s experiences illustrate how stepping out of one’s comfort zone can lead to growth and happiness.
Tune in to be inspired to go out and be brave in your own life.
