Surrendering to a higher power can be hard for those who are used to controlling everything around them.

Today’s guest, Kute Blackson, is here to share his story about letting go and offer a new perspective on how we can surrender in order to experience more freedom.

Kute is a beloved inspirational speaker and transformational teacher. He speaks at countless events he organizes around the world as well as at outside events including A-Fest, YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization), and EO (Entrepreneurs’ Organization).

He is also a member of the Transformational Leadership Council, a select group of one hundred of the world’s foremost authorities in the personal development industry. 

Winner of the 2019 Unity New Thought Walden Award, He is widely considered a next-generation leader in the field of personal development. Likewise, his mission is simple: “To awaken and inspire people across the planet to access inner freedom, live authentically, and fulfill their true life’s purpose.”

In this conversation, we dive into the importance of surrender.

We discuss:

  • The inability to control the process of surrender
  • Attempting to control other people’s perceptions of you
  • How to be more gentle and patient with yourself
  • The difference between surrender and acceptance
  • Grief is an important step on the path to surrendering
  • How to keep expectations and goals without attachment
