Dr. Carol S. Dweck - MINDSET - Changing The Way You think To Fulfil Your Potential

Brendon Burchard - HIGH PERFORMANCE HABITS - How extraordinary people become that way

“Sometimes the fastest way to get back in the game is to expect something from yourself again.”

John Assaraf - HAVING IT ALL - chieving Your Life's Goals and Dreams

“If everything in the universe is energy, then all that really matters is to understand that everything has a different frequency or different vibration.”

“For every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction in nature. If you send out good harmonious thoughts, good harmonious thoughts come back. If you send out negative thoughts, negative thoughts come back. If you send out thoughts of doubts and fears and anxieties and worry, that’s the energy field that must come back, and that is not what you want.”

Brendon Burchard - MOTIVATION MANIFESTO - 9 Declarations to Claim Your Personal Power

“None of us wants to be the cause of our own failure in life - yet most often we are. It is our own inept thinking, our own bad habits that rip the vibrancy from life. We are the ultimate oppressors of our own happiness.”

“Unless we are being chased by a deadly animal or deranges human, or face imminent physical harm like falling to our death, fear is just bad management of our mind.”

“The mother of motivation is choice. Every state, emotion, and mood available to Man can be generated at will in our mind.”

Mark Manson - THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK - A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

“Whether you realise it or not, you are always choosing what to give a f**k about. Maturity is what happens when one learns to only give a fuck about what’s truly fuckworthy.”

“What are we choosing to give a f**k about? What values are we choosing to base our actions on? What metrics are we choosing to use to measure our life? And are those good choices - good values and good metrics?”

Mel Robbins - The 5 SECOND RULE - The Surprisingly Simple Way to Live, Love, and Speak with Courage

“Forget motivation; it’s a myth. I don’t know when we all bought into the idea that in order to change you must ‘feel’ eager or ‘feel’ motivated to act. It’s complete garbage. The moment it’s time to assert yourself, you will not feel motivated. In fact, you won’t feel like doing anything at all. If you want to improve your life, you’ll need to get off your rear end and kick your own butt. In my world, I call that the power of a push.”


“What about yourself are you willing to shed to become who you were meant to be?”

“You need to hear this loud and clear. No one is coming. It is up to you. It has always been and will always be up to you. You may never feel inspired or clearheaded enough to seize a moment, but you have to force yourself to do it even if you don’t want to. Nothing is changing unless you make it change.”

“You miss an enormous number of opportunities to change your life on a daily basis because you are not focused on what you want. You are focused on your problems and maintaining the illusion that you are fine.”

Brene Brown - THE GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION - Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

“People may call what happens at midlife ‘a crisis’, but it’s not. It’s an unraveling - a time when you feel a desperate pull to live the life you want to live, not the one you’re ‘supposed’ to live. The unraveling is a time when you are challenged by the universe to let go of who you think you are supposed to be and to embrace who you are.”


“If we’re going to put ourselves out there and love with our whole hearts, we’re going to experience heartbreak. If we’re going to try new, innovative things, we’re going to fail. If we’re going to risk caring and engaging, we’re going to experience disappointment. It doesn’t matter if our hurt is caused by a painful breakup or we’re struggling with something smaller, like an offhand comment by a colleague or an argument with an in-law. If we can learn how to feel our way through these experiences and own our stories of struggle, we can write our own brave endings. When we own our stories, we avoid being trapped as characters in stories someone else is telling.”

“When we stop caring what people think, we lose our capacity for connection. But when we are defined by what people think, we lose the courage to be vulnerable. The solution is getting totally clear on the people whose opinions actually matter.”

Brene Brown - BRAVING THE WILDERNESS - The quest for true belonging and the courage to stand alone 

“There will be times when standing alone feels too hard, too scary, and we’ll doubt our ability to make our way through the uncertainty. Someone, somewhere, will say, ‘Don’t do it. You don’t have what it takes to survive the wilderness.’ This is when you reach deep into your wild heart and remind yourself, ‘ I am the wilderness’.
