How can we transform our collective fear and the deep divisions between us into meaningful change? In Freedom Is an Inside Job, bestselling author, humanitarian, and TV personality Zainab Salbi shares that to transform our outer world, we must turn towards our inner world.
After years of working as a successful CEO and change-maker, Salbi realized that if she wanted to confront and heal the shadows of the world, she needed to face her own shadows first. Holding nothing back, Salbi shares pivotal moments from her personal life alongside poignant and fascinating stories from her encounters around the world. Through her stories, we learn that if we want to create real change, we need to heal the inconsistencies within our own values, actions, and goals.
As Salbi explores her own riveting journey to wholeness, readers learn how embarking on such a journey enables each of us to create the world we want to live in. "So long as we are conflicted within, we will continue to have conflict without," writes Salbi. "If we want to change the world, we need to begin with ourselves. This is the path to freedom."
