    Be The Sunshine: How Can You Be a Good Ally in a Divided World? A chat with Motivational Dynamo Warrior Ric

    Be The Sunshine: How Can You Be a Good Ally in a Divided World? A chat with Motivational Dynamo Warrior Ric

    How can we be an ally in an ever-divided world?

    I had the most incredible and thought-provoking chat recently with global motivational dynamo Ricardo Gressel, aka Warrior Ric.

    In our discussion, we addressed why Warrior Ric, who hails originally from the America’s (like yours truly), has a deep connection to South Africa, as well as his hopes for a better future for all its citizens.

    A graduate of Stanford University holding more 20 years of marketing and communications experience building blue chip brands across Africa and America, Ric now works in motivational speaking, specifically as a motivator for participants of obstacle course races (OCR). Ric honestly believes that doing things such as obstacle course racing is a perfect metaphor for helping us overcome everyday life challenges. He says that true greatness comes from within. We spoke about “failing forward,” and humans innate fear of change and of failing.

    Lastly, Ric shared his thoughts and views on the global war on racial injustices, on Black Lives Matter, and how we can all become better allies for the disadvantaged and oppressed.

    It was a true honour to speak with such a powerhouse of motivation and knowledge and I look forward to following Warrior Ric’s journey in helping others reach their highest selves.

    The next awesome event he is an ambassador for is the Spar Women’s Virtual Challenge themed “Be Sunshine.”

    I signed up for this challenge and I encourage you all to do so too! I think we can all learn more about the world by walking in each other’s shoes for a bit.

    Happy listening!

Disappointing

This is why white folks should not try to “lead” conversations on anti-racism and allyship. Missing the mark is one thing, but so much harm has been caused in the process. People who have a public platform and following need to be responsible for the content they publish, and some of the episodes on this podcast fall way short of those standards of responsibility.
