Noteworthy Quotes from this Episode
“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that more and more that my worth really comes from me. It’s not from anybody else. I don’t need the validation of other people. When I really own my worth, honor myself, and give myself love I am just that much better of an advocate for other people. That’s also when I’m attracting the people that have matching vibrational energy, and then were able to do so much together.”
“It comes down to having the courage to look within and say, ‘Am I truly happy?’ When I was on the verge of leaving my last position, I remember sitting in my car and being like, ‘Wow, I really don’t want to do this today.’ Mind you, this was a dream job. It was a job that I really thought I always wanted. But that’s the thing about life, sometimes you’ll get what you ultimately always wanted. Then you’ll realize this isn’t what I thought it was going to be, it doesn’t actually fulfill me, and my interest is actually elsewhere. We get on these tracks and we create these limiting beliefs that are then affirmed by society. And the reality is that there’s no such thing. Have the courage to ask questions and really follow your happiness. Follow that curiosity. The universe will always provide.”
