#83. A Journey of the Mind through Great Difficulties: CEO and Activist Leon El-Alamin
Show Notes

Leon El-Alamin started out life on the wrong path. Growing up in Flint, Michigan he got into the street life. He was a drug dealer. He was shot in the head. He was incarcerated. In prison, he was put into 22-hour-a-day lockdown. Amid these difficulties, he had a revelation. He discovered who he really was, and what he wanted to become. Upon release, he went looking for work, but no one would hire him because of his record. Rather than returning to crime, Leon decided to change the community. He started a non-profit to support at-risk youth and formerly incarcerated individuals.  
In this episode, you'll learn about:

  • Taking a radically new path in life
  • The need to focus on one's self
  • The power of reading 
  • Creating yourself into who you want to be
  • The impact of spirituality on self-discipline
