Today, I am talking to Lewis Hamilton, 7-time Formula1 world champion, with over a hundred race wins, considered the most successful F1 driver of all time. In 2014, Lewis won BBC's Sports Personality of the Year. Followed two years later by a position in Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People list. Lewis received both accolades for a second time in 2020 in a year that saw him become a leading voice in the global fight for racial equality. In doing so, he was recognized as British GQs Game Changer of the Year and Powerlist's Most Influential Black Person in the uk. Lewis is also a passionate activist for so many underrepresented groups and communities.

Lewis shows us a different perspective on finding your own purpose and going after what you believe is morally right. We talk about how even the simplest things can help change the world, the power we give to our fears and how it’s stopping us from finding our truth, the benefits of being comfortable with your own thoughts, and learning how to declutter our life so we can find our spot in this world.
