Key Quotes:

  • “What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do… I started to use that quote as my guidance system. Wherever I was feeling significant fear, significant resistance, I would try and put it to the top of my priority list and just step into that fear.”
  • “The reality is that you’re not gonna suddenly have more time, discipline, or willpower. So it’s best to stop living in the illusion of tomorrow.”
  • “I think back and if I wouldn’t have had that one moment of strength… I really don’t know where I’d be right now. It’d be a different world.”
  • “You can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect them by looking backward… You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
  • “There have been many times on this journey where it made absolutely no sense to me… but when I look in the rearview mirror, it’s amazing how the dots connect and have led to an absolutely incredible life.”
