What do you think of when you hear the word ‘accountability’? Do you think about ‘being held accountable for something’ in its negative connotation? What about 'accountability partners'? Is it possible there is a better way to think and live accountability? Our next guest passionately embraces the tenet that values are what a relationship is built upon and that is what drives accountability. Join Host, Mike Domitrz as he welcomes Author, Speaker, Consultant, and his personal confidante, Sam Silverstein to the podcast. Sam redefines accountability as a spiritual, values-based principle and describes the importance of understanding your non-negotiables so you can align with people who share similar values.

How much attention are you paying to the number of "likes" you get on social media? Do you seek constant feedback from others to feel valued? What do you think of when you hear the word "Ego"? Is it a negative connotation? What about "Warrior"? Can a warrior be meek and still be strong? Host, Mike Domitrz, along with CAST members Alan Anderson, Rick Clemons, Barry Moniak, and Pat Corrigan Culotti investigate the quandary, “If our primary goal is to serve others, how can our ego serve us?” 

 

The quote that inspired this conversation is “The warrior of meek has abandoned gain, victory, and fame, leaving them far behind. You are not dependent on feedback from others because you have no doubt about yourself. You do not rely on encouragement or discouragement; therefore, you also have no need to display your valor to others.” from Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, by Chögyam Trungpa
