Memorable Quotes

  • “We all have those opportunities to confront those things that have held us back in life. And when we do them, and they’re fun and empowering.”
  • “If we’re more courageous, and we step into our fears in a way that’s really productive, fun and intentional, that makes us happier people.”
  • “A lot of times, we don’t forgive other people because we’re afraid of what it might feel like if we forgive somebody. So there’s a lot about courage that has to do with other aspects of life.”
