Kindess Diaries is My Favorite Series On Netflix

We are excited to announce our special guest on the Positive Phil Show.  It gives us great pleasure to announce Leon Logothetis to the Positive Phil Podcast.  https://www.leonlegothetis.com

He is a best-selling author, motivational speaker, philanthropist, & cause adventurer. It wasn’t always that way. He used to be a broker in the city of London where he felt uninspired and chronically depressed. He gave it all up for a life on the road. This radical life change was inspired by the inspirational movie The Motorcycle Diaries.

Kindness Diaries is now on Netflix: www.netflix.com/title/80156137

Leon has visited more than 90 countries and traveled to every continent. He is the host of the TV series Amazing Adventures Of A Nobody, which is broadcast across the world by National Geographic International and, over the course of three seasons, sees Leon cross America, the United Kingdom and Europe on just 5 dollars, 5 pounds, and 5 euros a day, respectively.

He recently returned from filming his new TV show The Kindness Diaries, in which he circumnavigated the globe on his vintage yellow motorbike Kindness One, giving life changing gifts along the way to unsuspecting good Samaritans. All of this whilst relying on the kindness of strangers.

6:48
Leon logothetis yes beautiful and we can
6:55
find you a lilo Thetis dot-com tell us a
6:59
little bit about yourself
7:00
who are you who am I first
7:05
well I used to be a broker in the city
7:09
of london I was very depressed no real
7:14
sense of purpose very disconnected and
7:18
didn’t have any sense of connection and
7:24
I watched them movie the motorcycle
7:27
diaries and was hit some way inspired
7:32
it’s a romanticized version of Che
7:35
Guevara traveling across south america
7:37
relying on the kindness of strangers
7:39
just and there was something in that
7:41
movie that really touched my heart and
7:43
and I was on the edge of kind of
7:47
quitting my job anyway to be honest but
7:48
that movie pushed me over the edge and I
7:52
quit my job and I started to travel
7:54
around the world and I kind of did it
7:56
relying on kindness you know kind of
7:58
took the romantic version of chains idea
8:00
and started to try to connect the people
8:03
you’re a best-selling author
8:06
motivational speaker philanthropist a
8:09
cause adventurer what does that break
8:12
that term mean cause adventurer craws
8:17
adventure I think the questions I mean
8:21
but basically I like adventures
8:23
yeah I I like going out into the world
8:26
and I like meeting the world
8:30
and what I managed to do is I’ve managed
8:33
to turn my adventures into quarters like
8:39
you know my cause is really about human
8:42
connection and and kindness and and
8:45
showing people compassion and empathy
8:47
and showing people that the world is not
8:50
as you know dark and then and evil is as
8:53
people think
8:54
yes bad things happen don’t get me wrong
8:56
they do they happen all the time but so
8:59
much goodness happens all the time as
9:00
well and we tend to forget that part
9:04
I’m that’s it that’s all that’s all you
9:09
need and you built the business around
9:11
this at the same time you have this our
9:13
paranormal spirit
9:15
yeah i mean i had you know I started off
9:21
working as a broker so i guess there is
9:24
an element of entrepreneurial missed but
9:27
to me it’s not about that it’s about
9:29
going out into the world and living
9:30
fully and touching as many lives in a
9:34
positive way as I can
9:36
obviously i’m not perfect so you know
9:38
that there are days when I’m without
9:41
when I when I when I combi as as honest
9:44
as normal but it’s it’s just a beautiful
9:46
thing to be able to connect
9:48
yeah I have that problem sometimes my
9:51
wife you’re not always so positive
9:53
well not that of course you’re human
9:57
being I just because it can’t always be
10:00
you can’t always be full of bubbles bad
10:03
things happen sometimes you’re going to
10:04
deal with the pain the emotional things
10:06
that happen in life it’s just normal you
10:09
have appeared on good morning america
10:11
CNN Fox BBC and you live in LA right or
10:16
yet
10:17
yes I live in LA now oh this is
10:19
fantastic how did you get hooked up with
10:21
that flex that’s exciting
10:23
yeah well basically I was i I did the
10:29
show and
10:31
you know we discussed in the netflix and
10:33
and they just happened
10:35
I mean obviously that’s the short
10:37
version to attrition took a lot longer
10:41
than that but very very fortunate you
10:44
know the fact that it’s on netflix has
10:46
enabled the message to go out even even
10:49
wider and it’s a beautiful thing I mean
10:51
I’m literally hundreds and hundreds of
10:52
messages and I do everything in my power
10:55
to respond to every single one of them
10:57
you’re living the life are you enjoying
10:59
the journey
11:00
yes I mean you know the journey is
11:03
sometimes it is sometimes challenging
11:05
but it’s it’s definitely where the magic
11:10
is
11:10
it’s not the jerk not not so much the
11:12
destination as they say some wise man
11:14
once said that it’s the journey not the
11:16
destination
11:17
yeah that path like my my mom always
11:21
says to me if the path wasn’t hard
11:24
perhaps around the wrong one yeah LOL
11:28
alright stay on it what do you do when
11:30
that that path gets dark and tough and
11:34
what do you do to stay positive what do
11:37
you do when life comes at you with all
11:40
its madness at times yeah
11:44
life does come at you with madness
11:46
there’s nothing that you can really
11:48
gonna do about that got to just be
11:51
constantly look at share share my pain
11:54
with people you know safe people i
11:56
remind myself that a brighter day is on
12:01
its way and even even reminding myself
12:03
that sometimes you in such a bad space
12:05
it’s hard to do that and then just got a
12:08
moment to moment I try to inspire myself
12:11
with books are trying to spite myself
12:13
with movies and sometimes I just in it
12:17
you know sometimes that’s all that’s the
12:19
best you can do just just sit in it and
12:21
deal with it be with it you to build and
12:25
continue to inspire continue to this is
12:29
it right this is it for you just helping
12:32
people
12:34
yeah it’s a beautiful thing to be able
12:36
to empower someone
12:39
I along with many others you know what
12:42
bullied as a kid and that was a very
12:44
disempowering experience so I i do
12:47
everything in my power again imperfectly
12:50
to try and in power people and this is
12:53
one way to do it to have a an adventure
12:56
and have a message solid message of of
13:00
goodness that we can use to help others
13:05
i saw a bumper sticker the other day and
13:08
it said random acts of kindness
13:11
it’s just doing something kind for
13:14
someone else you know
13:19
yeah you know coming from a place of
13:20
compassion coming from a place of
13:22
empathy coming from a place of your own
13:24
humanists is is a powerful thing getting
13:28
to a place where you see someone where
13:30
that person feel scene and and in so
13:33
many ways we don’t feel see many of us
13:35
don’t you see many many people don’t get
13:37
seen and that’s one of the worst things
13:38
that can happen when you don’t feel like
13:39
you’re that you belong you don’t feel
13:42
like the people that you’re with care in
13:45
any way shape or form and just showing a
13:47
small act of kindness whatever it may be
13:49
over smaller large with that person feel
13:51
seeing is a beautiful thing man you’re
13:54
