1. Reaching Our Full Potential by Being In Control of Our Lives with Dr. Reza Abraham Dr. Ron Kaiser 45:42

As tragic and sad stories are more compelling to the general audience, there’s a whole narrative built on the idea that we must endure some kind of massive trauma before taking the reins of our lives. It might look like those with average lives, and moderate experiences aren’t capable of taking control of their reality.

Our guest, Dr. Reza Abraham, believes we can optimize and control our lives and careers without the need to go through massive trauma. Inspired by Bob Berg’s words, who said that a system can help an ordinary person achieve an extraordinary result predictably, Dr. Reza created his own systematic process: InControl.

Dr. Reza Abraham is a Keynote Speaker, Leadership Masterclass Designer & Coach, Author of the transformative book “InControl: A Systematic Approach to Taking Complete Control of Your Life and Career,” and Co-founder of InControl Group.

In this episode, we delve into Dr. Reza’s InControl system, his decision to share his work with the world, and the importance of mentorship. We explore the different aspects that contribute to the feeling of being in control of our lives, the three cornerstones of the InControl model, and why we must stop apologizing for the things in life, we can’t manage. Dr. Reza shared his thoughts on the COVID crisis, what it meant, what it should mean for us, and what he learned from it.
