RADICAL
RESPONSIBILITY

How to Move Beyond Blame, Fearlessly Live Your Highest Purpose, and Become an Unstoppable Force for Good.

A new book by Fleet Maull, PhD

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.

A practical, deeply inspiring manual to attain freedom from self-limitations and awaken to fearless, compassionate, conscious living."

Ronald D. Siegel, PsyD, assistant professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School and author of The Mindfulness Solution: Everyday Practices for Everyday Problems

“Fleet Maull has lived a life of transformation. Emerging from a drama-filled life that led to imprisonment, he knows deeply what I call the ‘Dreaded Drama Triangle’—originally the Karpman Drama Triangle—and its roles of Victim, Persecutor, and Rescuer. His journey of awakening to his essence as a Creator should be an inspiration to all. He is an exemplar of TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic®) and, through Radical Responsibility, he serves as a Challenger and Coach to readers to become Creators in their own lives.”

David Emerald (Womeldorff), author of The Power of TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic)

“I’ve been teaching about the importance of looking at everything through the lens of personal responsibility for decades. Taking personal responsibility is the only ‘above the line’ perspective. Anything else—blaming, shaming, or justifying—is decidedly ‘below the line,’ and will only hold you back and limit your opportunities for advancement and growth. Fleet addresses this issue beautifully in Radical Responsibility, and I wholeheartedly endorse his work.”
