If you’re feeling trapped in a constant cycle of self-doubt and fear, always second-guessing your actions and decisions, then you are not alone! Despite your efforts to grow and become your true self, you may find yourself conforming to societal expectations, losing touch with your own desires and dreams.
The fear of judgment and rejection may be holding you back from embracing who you truly are, leaving you feeling unfulfilled and disconnected. Remember, you have the power to break free from this cycle and embark on a journey of self-acceptance and personal growth.
My special guest is Dr. Robert Heath Meeks
Charting a fresh course in the field of personal growth, Dr. Robert Heath Meeks guides individuals on a transformative journey towards self-discovery and overcoming fear. With his distinct understanding of the human mind, authentic self-expression, and personal growth, he assists individuals in breaking down barriers to reveal their true selves. Dr. Meeks’ approach primarily centers around empowering people to embrace fear as a stepping stone towards personal fulfillment instead of viewing it as a roadblock. His insightful advice resonates deeply with those seeking to embark on a path of self-improvement and authenticity.
We have ownership over when and how we’re visible, over where and with whom we’re shared, how we spend our time. We can literally pick and choose where we want to be discovered and stay there until we are. – Dr. Robert Heath Meeks

The hope is that we all leave with something I think we need these days… A Bit of Optimism.

Scott Harrison’s life as an elite nightclub promoter was an unending cycle of drinking, drugs, models, and fast cars. After ten years, his vices caught up with him, and a health scare forced him to reflect on his life.
Scott felt decadent, wasteful, and morally bankrupt. He decided to completely reverse course. Scott spent the next 2 years in West Africa on board a nonprofit hospital ship, where he saw a level of human suffering that led him to his true calling.
Today, solving the global water crisis is Scott’s life’s work, and he’s built one of the most trusted nonprofits in the world to do just that. His organization charity: water has raised over $750 million, helping more than 17.4 million people access clean drinking water.
Scott shares with me the painful road that led to his transformation and why living a life of service can be a path toward redemption.
This…is A Bit of Optimism
