770: Leon Logothetis: Traveling the World Relying on Kindness

Kindness costs you nothing but can change someone’s life forever, even your own – but how do we even define kindness, what does it mean to be genuinely kind, and how can a simple act of kindness have such lasting effects on the people around us?

What to Listen For

  • How do you deal with possible regrets when you make major life-changing decisions?
  • What is the Kindness Diaries and what inspired Leon Logothetis to start his quest for kindness?
  • How do you deal with the pushback that comes from close friends and family when you decide to leave a stable job to pursue your dreams?
  • What was it like for Leon Logothetis to approach a stranger for the first time and how has his approach evolved over time?
  • How can you use body language to allow strangers to feel comfortable talking to you when approaching them in the middle of the day?
  • How does Leon Logothetis choose who he’s going to approach and who he wants to avoid?
  • Are kindness and generosity universal or does it vary by culture?
  • What was Leon Logothetis’s favorite life-changing moment from the show and what did it teach him?
  • How does Leon Logothetis define kindness and what advice does he have for those of us struggling to be kinder in our day to day lives?
  • How can you work on being kind if you’ve been taken advantage of in the past?
  • How can you be kind and strong at the same time so you don’t get taken advantage of?

As Leon Logothetis put it, “Kindness is helping someone else feel less alone.” Loneliness is a feeling we can all relate to, as we have all felt it at one time or another, and many of us feel it regularly in a world where people are feeling increasingly isolated and disconnected from one another and their communities. Kindness can help to rectify that, even if it means one small act of kindness each day.

AJ Harbinger is one of the world’s top relationship development experts. His company, The Art of Charm, is a leading training facility for top performers that want to overcome social anxiety, develop social capital and build relationships of the highest quality. Raised by a single father, AJ felt a strong desire to learn about relationships and the elements that make them successful. However, this interest went largely untapped for many years. Following the path set out for him by his family, AJ studied biology in college and went on to pursue a Ph.D. in Cancer Biology at the University of Michigan. It was at this time that he began to feel immense pressure from the cancer lab he worked in and began to explore other outlets for expression. It was at this point that The Art of Charm Podcast was born.
