“Pain is truly the only thing that's ever gotten me to change. So, it's been my growth accelerator as well as my reminder of when I've gone astray.”
"If we can develop that, the wherewithal to have the awareness around the circumstances surrounding whatever event it is, that you can leverage that crack in the door, that door cracking open, or that line in the sand to make some significant changes.”
“I can tell you that I'm happiest and most alive when I'm butting up against the outer edges of my pain threshold”
“I think that most people set the wrong goals for themselves, and it's because they're disconnected from who they are. They are living someone else's life, or they're living a life that's so disconnected from who they are that ... And they're living a life that they didn't consciously choose for themselves, and because they don't have a healthy relationship with themselves, with their interior life, it becomes very difficult to set the right goals.”
“It's easy to say, I'm an outlier. But, I'm not. I really am not anything special. I had the courage and the audacity to pursue these things. And, in so doing, I have realized that human potential is malleable. We're all sitting atop massive reservoirs of untapped potential and ability.”
