092: Bob Goff on Insecurity, Identity, and Loving Difficult People

This week on "Win Today," I’m sitting down with Bob Goff. And today, we’re talking all about living a meaningful life through the lens of his brand-new book, "Everybody, Always: Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People."

Imagine having the secret of living without fear, care, constraint, or worry. I really believe it’s possible. See, the path toward the outsized, unfettered, liberated existence we all long for is found in a truth as simple to say as it is hard to do: love people, even the difficult ones, without distinction and without limits. And the path to doing so really isn’t found in a formula or a five-step plan. It’s found in living a life characterized by belief, vulnerability, connection, and an unwavering to remind the people in your life about who they are. Well today, I’m sitting down with a cup of tea and  someone whose life epitomizes exactly those characteristics. His name? Bob Goff. And today, we’re talking all about living a meaningful life through the lens of his brand-new book, Everybody, Always: Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People. I’m not kidding when I say the book left me in tears as much as laughter. It’s so real, just like the conversation we’re about to have.

About Bob Goff

Bob calls himself a “recovering lawyer” because after practicing law for 25 years, then becoming the Hon. Consul to Uganda, he gave up his law firm to pursue writing and speaking full time. The best part has been connecting with so many people who are on a terrific adventure as well.
