Links Mentioned:


  • I needed to stop looking at trying to be successful in business by killing myself, and I needed to look inside and be successful within myself so I can live, rather than survive.
  • If you have to be very busy, working really hard to prove that you have worth, that’s a trauma response.
  • Ultimately, you’ve got to be a leader of your own self before you can effectively change productivity levels within your team.
  • Unless you change the deep, hidden beliefs that you have about yourself and about the results that you’re going to get, it’s very likely that you’re going to keep being challenged and keep getting results that you’re not happy with.
  • The only thing that we keep steady and keep constant is how we feel within ourselves, and what we believe about who we are, and how we present ourselves to the world.
  • Your lived experience up until this moment shapes who you are now.
