- If we all are more vulnerable with each other – everyone feels freer to be themselves. So, I really feel like being vulnerable is not only important to me as a person but then also those around me. It gives them permission to be vulnerable as well.
- When something starts to go south in my life…the thing I say to myself, my dog, my cat is… "I’m in the right place, at the right time, to learn the right thing."
- I take a step back and I go, "I don’t need to know why something is happening but I’m going to get some value out of it."
- If you’re not tasting [wine], then you’re not getting that bigger picture of, “I had no idea a wine could invoke a memory of my grandmother’s blueberry patch.”
- It is your opportunity, you’re being given an opportunity for growth. It is a challenge, like Camelot, everything you think is a heroic challenge. If you don’t meet the challenge – you tamp down your own growth and you stay where you are.
- Sometimes status quo is enough to expect.
- If you can take that challenge up, seize into it and turn toward it versus run away from it, it is that amazing place of finding resources maybe you didn’t know that you had. Finding depth that you didn’t know that you had and growing your life in a way you just hadn’t foreseen.
- It’s taken me a long time to understand that perhaps stepping back and helping the other person see from a more objective perspective is more helpful than getting on that person’s side and saying, “I’m gonna pick up a sword with you.”
-"How am I supposed to contribute to society and the world?" And if you’re playing small you don’t have that opportunity really to ever expose people to your brilliance, your unique signature that makes everyone in the world different, after you’ve existed. You have to step out of your comfort zone to do that.
- By not rewarding myself, I was holding myself back from that swirling energy of feeling great.
