Men tend to think of surrender as woo-woo and feminine. But today’s Man Alive guest gives grounded and clear reasons why surrender is the key to next level success and fulfillment, even for men. Kute Blackson, a best-selling author and transformational speaker, takes surrender to a whole new level, showing you how the greats — MLK, Jesus, Gandhi, etc. — are powerful examples of what’s possible when you surrender.
Surrender isn’t usually something men tell me they desire. It’s almost as much of a cringe word as vulnerability ;).
But surrender is actually NOT what you think!
Because surrender is often misunderstood as a woo-woo, new-agey, feminine experience, I wanted today’s Man Alive Podcast guest to focus on why surrender is powerful for men.
Kute Blackson is the author of best-selling book: You Are the One, and he has a new book called The Magic of Surrender, which has been endorsed by Jack Canfield, John Gray and many other NY Times best-selling authors. A beloved inspirational speaker and transformational teacher, Kute has a fresh, bold take on spiritual awareness that may blow your mind.
Kute’s multicultural upbringing as the child of a Japanese mother and a Ghanaian father has spanned four different continents. His unique lineage is a foundation for his approach to accessing people’s greatness, through the powerful process of surrender. I grilled him a bit, to make sure he could justify his case, that surrender is a grounded and powerful choice, rather than wishy-washy and irresponsible. We discussed…
- Why surrender is NOT weak and will NOT make you a victim or a doormat
- Discipline and responsibility as forms of surrender
- How to let go of force and the attempt to manipulate life
- The great ones’ — MLK, Jesus, Gandhi etc — surrender to a calling bigger than themselves
- Why surrender is the most powerful thing you can do and the key to your next level of success

A beloved inspirational speaker and transformational teacher, Kute Blackson offers a fresh, bold look at spiritual awareness for a whole new generation. Born in Ghana, West Africa, Kute’s multicultural upbringing as the child of a Japanese mother and a Ghanaian father has spanned four different continents. His unique lineage lay the foundation for his approach to breaking down barriers and unlocking an individual’s true gifts and greatness.
Kute was raised all over the world. When he arrived in Los Angeles, all he had to his name were two suitcases and the dream of seeking out the spiritual and self-help icons who had inspired him when he was a boy. Kute quickly learned that the “outside-in” approach favored by so many in the personal development space had to become an inside-out approach. He created his own method—a process that liberates the individual and the true self at the core and then allows those gifts to be given. It is a process of breaking free—so each individual can live, give, and share the truest expression of their self. This is what Kute calls “Liberated Living.”
