Kit Cummings: Seek first to understand before achieving progress

Joined in studio by Kit Cummings, the founder and president of the Power of Peace Project, and by my co-host Gareth J. Young.

Kit CummingsKit talked to us about his extraordinary work and what he has learned working in such challenging environments and offered us many wonderful lessons that point us towards an authentic, happy and fulfilling life and career including:

1. Our fear of the unknown causes us to build walls, and by building tunnels and bridges to our unknown, we can find greater happiness, joy and meaning;

2. If you learn to work with others, you can still do what you want to do, but you – and they – will be civil and life will be easier;

3. “You can’t get me to pick a side. I have convictions, but even those convictions are changeable if I walk with you.”

4. “We fear what we don’t know or don’t understand.”
