QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE
7:28 ~ “Say what you want. Talk to the universe. It will respond. Be direct. Never worry that you're not good enough. Everyone has a story... Everyone's coming from a place. Have empathy. Be nice and nice things happen to you.”
16:32 ~ "The number one key to all this is a healthy mind and keeping that in check. Just being super super self-aware and understanding that... self-help and reflection is constant. It doesn't go away. It's not like once you make millions of dollars then you're set. Oh no, then it's worse... You've got more to lose. It only gets worse..."
34:55 ~ “If it makes me feel yucky. I don't do it.”
35:03 ~ "That should probably be everyone's... guide: 'how does it make you feel...?' Like when you're with a person... and you're having lunch. If you leave and you feel uplifted and whole, that's a good person you should be around them. If you feel tired and exhausted and depleted, don't put that person in your life anymore. Kind of the same thing with social media. If it makes you feel fun and you're having a good time, do it. If it doesn't, then don't."
42:09 ~ "Everything in life, you know... if you just close your eyes, you know how it makes you feel. You know the issue. You know the problem. But a lot of people don’t know how to handle it. They don't want to talk about it. They don't want to go there. It's too uncomfortable."
43:14 ~ "Everything makes you feel a certain way. People make you feel a certain way. Social media. Talking. Being in traffic. All the things. And if we just went around paying more attention to how we feel, I think that most people would find ease in life. But we constantly are battling with things that we don't really want to do, or people we don't want to be around, because we think we should, or think we gotta get to the next thing and... there's so much that we're battling against. And I think that it can be easier. And I'm saying this to myself as a good reminder... Life should actually be quite easy.”
44:43 ~ "We're so hard on ourselves. And we are constantly putting the answer away from ourselves, when it's really just in us."
45:16 ~ "The thing that you think you want is actually not going to make you happy or solve your problems. So what you have to do is figure out how to achieve the feeling that you think that thing is going to give you without [that thing]."
