Me, Robbie LeonardHi. I’m Robbie. Welcome to the Determined Soul Blog.

I write about finding the wisdom in our struggles.

Question I try to answer:

“How do we unleash our greatest potential to change the world?”

Reawaken our curiosity

The goal of this blog is to spark the passion and enthusiasm within us that we had as kids. To learn, discover, and explore the world around us. We would question everything about the world as children. Somewhere along the line we start closing off our minds to different ideas. We stop asking questions.

I believe that awakening the Spartan curiosity and strength can unleash our greatest potential.

Are you a Spartan truth seeker? Are you ready to challenge your mind?

Join me on this journey to become the best version ourselves to make a difference in this world.

I usually post a new article once a week.

My Story

I’ve been a Californian my entire life. I hail from the small, laid-back beach town of Carpinteria, California. I now live in the blazing heat of the San Fernando Valley.

From the beginning, overcoming obstacles is a part of who I am. At birth, my umbilical cord is a coiled snake around my neck. At 5-years old, I’m diagnosed with DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy). It’s a progressive muscle disorder.

I learned that my struggles strengthened the determination within my soul. I’m determined to encourage people to find the wisdom in their own struggles.

I studied Graphic Design in college. After college, I would reminisce about my high school English teacher, Mr. Baird. He awoke the strong passion within me for literature and writing.

My calling to become a writer grasped me with a vengeance. It was time to embrace this calling with my entire heart and soul.
