Overcome Your Self in Service to Humanity

Realize Your True Self and Lead a Business You Love

Liberation is not in becoming but in being.
Freedom is not other than being what you already are.
Leadership is not a position of power but a spiritual practice—
the overcoming of self in service to humanity.
Business is not an exchange but a creative expression of love—
the truest expression of Self.
Success, like love, was never meant to be conditioned—
love doesn’t need a reason and success
doesnt need an object.
Happiness is the ever
present nature of all living beings.
Being whole, happy, and free is not a path, but the realization,
I already am.’

Who is this ME?

Fear, judgment, and self-doubt used to hold me back. I held back in my leadership, in business, and even in just being myself.

Not something most people expect from a former pro athlete and a former special forces operative, but as a high performer yourself, you know how it feels, right?

After not receiving many answers to why this was happening to “me,” I asked myself, “who is this me?”

“Who is this me that fears, doubts, and judges all the time?” And at that moment, I realized there is no me. Me is the mind’s false perception of self. The True Self is oneness, non-dual existence.

I asked myself two questions after my 10-year pro basketball career: ‘what do I do best?’ and ‘how can I best serve humanity from now on?’

The realization of the True Self or the no-self and finding the answer to these two questions led to what you see here as “my work.”

I dedicate my life to serving and guiding people like you— leaders, business owners, and former pro athletes who are spiritually curious— to realize your True Self, while becoming the most influential leader you can be and create a business you love in service to humanity.

“Gilad’s heart is so open to that it just allows you to be at ease, to be at ease being yourself and being whole in the present moment. From our work together I am able to know, gauge, and measure when I’m not functioning from my most optimal self. I am able to communicate who I am and what I stand for better than ever! There is such a shift in your perspective. You start to see clearly from your own eyes, from your real authentic perspective of the world.”

“In my 25 years experience – I’ve never had this one person and coach like Gilad, who believed in me, more than I believed in myself. This one person, who’d celebrate my extraordinary success and be by my side in the dark times. This one person, who’d support me no matter what, even when I strongly believed, I’ll be just fine on my own. 

Gilad gently guided me back to my true self, my inner wisdom, my endless joy for life!

Thank you, Gilad, for your guidance and being there in love & peace, always. You helped my growth & healing. Unconditionally.”

I struggled to have it all before working with Gilad; the career, the business, the family life, and being the calm mother I want to be. I now feel that sense constant peace and balance, and I incorporate it into my life. I feel way lighter and also in peace. Gilad challenges me in a very wise, kind, and gentle way. While also holding a mirror up very powerfully.
