Read on for a couple of quote highlights and our shout-outs from the episode! Hope you love it!
“With NLP, it puts us in a place where we can express our emotions with efficiency, meaning to know ourselves and know what our flesh is doing when we have visceral responses.”
“Perspective is the lens in which we view the world. Perception is how we experience the world.”
“I wanted to share a story of what it meant to come from the broken side of the fence, I just wanted to be a person who could have some kind of worth or impact.”
“It was the worst day of my life. But it was the best thing that could ever happen to me.”
“You’ve been weathered for a reason. Because when people go to the beach, to grab a rock, the rock that people go and pick up is the smoothest rock. It’s the one that feels nice on the skin. It’s the one that has the unique, the smoothest edges. And those are the rocks that have been weathered the hardest, and you are the desired rock on the beach.”
“I was surrounded by people who were in a phase of their life, where they had done all the living. And now here, they were giving back to themselves.”
“Give yourself permission to think different.”
“If you look at all the ways that you give to other people, look at all the things that you do for other people. Are you giving to yourself in abundance which you give to everyone else?”
“Don’t expect those closest to you to acknowledge your growth when they’re stuck in the past.”
“Everything that is happening in my life has led me to be exactly where I am today. As long as I am intentionally showing up from the inside out, everything that comes thereafter is a part of a process. The only thing I can control is how I respond. I am excited every day that I wake up to have the opportunity to do it a little bit different.”
