Practicing kindness is an essential step in helping to repair a world that has grown to be more divisive, lonely, and anxious than ever. But what actually makes you a kind person?

In this episode, speaker and author Houston Kraft and I discuss his new book Deep Kindness: A Revolutionary Guide for the Way We Think, Talk, and Act in Kindness. He's sharing how to take an honest look at the gap between our belief in kindness and our ability to practice it, and how to put our good intentions into actionable results. I love this episode - it's going to dramatically shift the way you talk about and act with kindness.

Get the book: Deep Kindness is perfect for anyone who believes in a kinder world and recognizes that there is a lot of work to do before we achieve it.
