What is the greatest obstacle to fulfillment, success, and happiness? “It's the belief that your current situation, whatever it is, has the power to determine your future,” teaches Fleet Maull.
Before he was a revered meditation teacher, Maull served 14 years in prison for drug trafficking. During that time, he embarked on a path of transformation and service that has helped tens of thousands from inmates to hospice patients to top-level business leaders. With Radical Responsibility, he invites us to experience for ourselves the life-changing journey from victim to co-creator.
“When we escape the belief that we are limited by our circumstances or others, we access the full power of our authentic selves,” writes Maull. Through teachings, practices, and Maull’s deep empathy for those in challenging life situations, this step-by-step book shows us how.
