"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."

"How happy are you willing to be?" - Daily Dose Minisode
"What's it going to cost you to feel good every day? It's going to cost a lot. It's going to cost letting go of putting yourself down. It's going to cost letting go of tapping yourself out and sitting on that bench because you're telling yourself you're not enough. Now you might be responsible, now you might actually be accountable. Now you might actually be available for joy. Well, what did we find out from research? Joy is the most vulnerable emotion. Because what happens when I let myself have it? I have something to lose. That's scary. We want to protect it. So if I could feel less joy, I could feel less good about myself. I could protect myself from failing, I could protect myself from other people saying things about me. How happy are you willing to be this year? What's it going to cost you?"
"You don't have to become anything. You have to unbecome." - Daily Dose Minisode
"That is every single journey of every single leader of every single person that you can name since the beginning of time. 'Who's going to do this? What if it's me? What if me, just this person who has no credentials other than I'm a human?' Yeah. I think it's you. Right? I think, no. So if people can do that, and lead the free world, and change history, fly planes across the world...Whatever we're going to do for the first time, we can do this."

"Receivership is the highest level of gratitude." - Daily Dose Minisode
"The more I have, the greater the capacity for me to deepen my gratitude to the creative force. And then I get to be a custodian of more of a resource to turn around, and give that away. And here's what's so cool about money. And it's the same thing with a lot of things. The more you have, you actually just created room for more expansion for other people."

SO OPEN AND VALUABLE!!!
Cathy is so open with her thoughts- not just about quitting your day job, but about spirituality, entrepreneurship, being a mom, being a friend, and just about life in general! She is inspiring and authentic and this podcast is a go-to for me on a DAILY basis!
Cathy,You continue to blow me away and give me the daily inspiration that I need to keep listening to my dreams. For this, I will be eternally thankful.
One of the best ways to start your day!
Pinching myself because I cannot believe I have listened to this podcast since day 1 and I’m just now writing a review! 🙈 Day 1, Day 1. Yes, January of 2017 is how long I have been religiously listening to Cathy and listening to Don’t Keep Your Day Job. Since 2017, I have changed jobs three times and am finally starting my own business. It has been a LONG time coming, but without Cathy and what feels like her individual support and encouragement, I don’t know that it would ever have begun. Favorite podcasts of all time include: Saul Blinkoff, Jasmine Starr, Jenna Kutcher, Jen Sincero, Christy Wright, Matthew Mcconaughey, Seth Godin, and so many more. I have grown not only in my willingness to look for more in my own business, but to look for more in my everyday life. I have listened to dozens of different podcasts, but this one, Don’t Keep Your Day Job, is my number 1 fav of all time and I adore listening and watching Cathy grow and help us all with our own growth. It was about time for a review, but just know I have been and will continue to support you all the way from Southern Indiana. My new business venture is Layne At Life on Facebook and I’d love to photograph YOU! 💕 Thanks for everything, Cath. Have a great week!
