Key points in the episode:

  • The bumps never stopped, the bruises never stopped. It’s a misconception that when you succeed the bumps and bruises go away.
  • I think the bigger game that you play the harder you get hit.
  • It’s all about figuring out how to navigate life to avoid the bumps and bruises to the best of your ability and acknowledging it’s still going to come.
  • Confidence is the result of taking acts in courage, taking acts in courage is the result of knowing that you’re moving forward in the queue.
  • When something is temporary and it’s 10 years, it sucks.
  • Time is a very elusive thing because all that exists is now; your past is not yours, your future is not, all that exists is now.
  • If you’re creating a life that you love, every ‘now’ is enjoyable, but if you’re creating life where you’re waiting for things to be done and to ‘feel good’, your ‘now’ is always going to suck.
  • When you want to succeed in life, you only prove it to yourself if you’re doing something now.
  • If you don’t enjoy your life without money, you won’t enjoy with money. If you don’t enjoy life without love, you won’t enjoy with love.
  • When you want to succeed in life, you only prove it to yourself if you’re doing something now.
  • You won’t have that life that you love, if you allow your insecurities to garb your dreams.
  • But if you’re on the win life SUCKS’ list, it will tear you apart; your insecurities will run the show.
  • You have to have a connection to your life’s purpose.
  • Everyone is born for a purpose, to nudge the human race, planet and the universe forward.
  • When people hate what they do, they’re not connected to their life work.
  • We have to be supportive with the empowering environment; you have cut off anything and everything that is lowering your vibration.
  • You need to compare yourself to yourself, are you evolving? If you’re doing it right, you should always be embarrassed of your previous self.
  • People who really play big in their life; they are constantly outside their comfort zones.
  • I’m not going to return back to some place, which is negative and guilt-driven just because I shared DNA.
  • The more that you step outside your comfort zone, the quicker you realize how unstoppable you become.
  • Pain is like a warning that says you’re running low on something.
  • You can’t wait until you feel sorry for yourself, you have to move forward while you feel sorry for yourself.
  • Your life partner reveals you what is repressed in you, what is not fully worked out and honed yet.
