    "We're coming home." - Daily Dose Minisode

    "Eleven year old you is so proud of you. You have weathered so many storms, and so many nights that felt like they just might not end. And you're here. So let's stop thinking that we need to be different and crush our goals and change all of our habits. It's like how about we honor how far we've come, how much we've soldiered through? Let's honor that."

    "The lie that we have to overcome." - Daily Dose Minisode

    "The lie that we have to overcome." - Daily Dose Minisode

    "All I have to do to do it is open my heart. I don't have to go to Harvard, I don't have to be better than Oprah, I don't have to write four bestsellers. I can literally just stand in a loving open hearted vibration and care. Care that my intention is genuine and care that I am seeking to give some empathy and some true investment in the well being of the people around me. Step into that. And it's just wow, your taxi cab light is on. Next thing you know, Gd just starts sending you opportunities to start checking out. He's like, 'How about this one? What about this? What do you think of it?' You're like, 'I don't know, it feels good. It all just feels so good.'"

    "You don't even want everybody at first until your audience is at a certain place where you have made them feel seen, and they do feel that you care and you've connected. Then I think you can start to have that traction."

    "We are the ocean inside." - Daily Dose Minisode

    "We are the ocean inside." - Daily Dose Minisode

    "When you look at the ocean, it's moving constantly. But here's the thing, my friends. What we forget is that if you go down into the ocean, you're no longer looking out at the ocean. You go into the ocean. If you drop in five feet. It's stillness. If you drop in 40 feet, it is so still. Imagine for a second that you are the ocean. We are the ocean inside. You look up at the surface, you're going to see that the top layer is choppy, windy. That's the most superficial aspect of the ocean is that top level. The majority of the ocean, 99.9% of the ocean is this stillness. That's us."
