When I first published The Advice Trap back in 2022, it was accompanied by a bonus course I created called ‘The Year of Living Brilliantly.’ Fifty-two different teachers, each teaching one powerful lesson on video. If you’ve been a participant, you’ll know today’s guest because his episode is one of the most popular. If you haven’t taken the course yet, you’re in luck – you’re about to meet one of its brilliant faculty members.

Bobby Herrera is the author of The Gift of Struggle, a short, excellent book on leadership, and the co-founder and President of Populus Group. Populus is Latin for ‘people,’ and that is absolutely where Bobby’s focus is.

Bobby reads two pages from ‘The Wisdom Pyramid’ by Brett McCracken. [reading begins at 8:44]

Hear us discuss:

  • Discerning what knowledge should be applied. [12:36]
  • “I’ve simply stopped focusing on anything that I can’t control.” [16:18]
  • How to both stand out and fit in. [18:39]
  • The art of surrendering power. [21:02]
  • Learning to sit with betrayal: “I’ve come to expect disappointment.” [23:30]
  • Remaining whole while being committed to giving: “Two’s a trend.” [27:08]
