Quotes from This Episode

“I think she gives a really good road map for recognizing the ways that you’ve been fooling yourself into thinking that you aren’t as great as you are -- and then moving forward and embracing your greatness.” - Emily

“The subconscious mind believes everything because it has no filter. It doesn’t know what’s true and what’s not true. Our subconscious mind is like a little kid who doesn’t know any better and, coincidentally, receives most of its information when we’re little kids and don’t know any better.” - “You Are A Badass,” Jen Sincero

“Watching someone else totally go for it can be incredibly upsetting to the person who’s spent a lifetime building a solid case for why they themselves can’t.” - “You Are A Badass,” Jen Sincero

“I think part of the painful process of growing up is recognizing that there are limitations to certain relationships and that’s not your fault necessarily. The only thing you can do is limit how much pain you have moving forward and recognize what role they actually have in your life.” - Emily

“They worked hard. Let’s just assume that we all worked hard for what we have, and maybe part of their working hard was getting over their limiting beliefs.” - Emily on comparing yourself to others and their successes

“The Big Snooze will do everything it can to stop you from changing and growing, especially since you’re attempting to obliterate the very identity that you and everyone else has come to know as you.” - “You Are A Badass,” Jen Sincero

“The moment you have the audacity to believe in the not-yet-seen, your reality will begin to shift. You have to change your thinking first, and then the evidence appears. Our big mistake is that we do it the other way around. We demand to see the evidence before we believe it to be true.” - “You Are A Badass,” Jen Sincero

“The only failure is quitting; everything else is gathering information.” - “You Are A Badass,” Jen Sincero

“Lame, vague goals are the best way to live a lame, vague life.” - “You Are A Badass,” Jen Sincero

“Her argument is that our thoughts are the biggest tools we have to actually respond to the world around us. So that if we can change our thoughts and we can change the way we think, we can change our reality.” - Sarah

“On the other side of fear is your freedom.” - “You Are A Badass,” Jen Sincero

“I think of a badass as someone who has readied themself against the world and what the world’s beliefs are and it’s harder for those beliefs to penetrate how they feel about themself.” - Sarah
