“More often than not, I notice that we’re afraid to lose our suffering because we’re afraid to lose our excuses.
It’s easier to hold on to pain as a reason for why we’re concealing our gifts, playing small, and not going after the kind of life we want to be living. But trust me on this: you are so much bigger than your suffering and pain.”

“Before you attempt to achieve anything, you must start by having extreme clarity about the outcome you want to create.
One of the best questions you can ask yourself before starting anything new, even a conversation, is,
‘What is my outcome? Why is this so important? What becomes available to me if I achieve this? What is withheld from me if I don’t?”

“You can’t always direct what happens to you and when, but, if you know what’s important to you overall and what you want to get out of life, you can have faith that, even if everything comes out of order and contradicts the particular visuals you have in mind, you will end up at the end of your life with the sense of satisfaction and fulfillment we all seek.”

“The willingness to think what you think and feel what you feel—without necessarily believing that it is true, and without feeling compelled to act on it—is an effective strategy for treating anxiety, depression, food cravings, and addiction. As we consider the evidence for each, we’ll see that giving up control of our inner experiences gives us greater control over our outer actions.”

You can’t have an up without a down. You can’t have a left without a right. This is duality. If you have a problem, you must already have the solution. The question is, do you really want the solution, or do you want to perpetuate the problem?”

Being a father has taught me the importance of self-love and self-compassion.
When people look at my 3-month-old baby boy, they often comment how he looks just like me. I feel happy whenever I hear that comment, but I also let that sink into my mind – as I cherish the beauty, innocence and purity of my baby boy, I remind myself that I also need to be more attentive, kind and compassionate to the little boy that lives inside me…Continue reading
Recently, one of my colleagues trained for, and then ran, a 70 mile-long mountain ultra-marathon. Just a few years ago, he didn’t run at all, and in fact, running was a sport he didn’t like. I now consider this formerly irresponsible procrastinator to have one of the strongest willpower muscles of anyone I know. By gradually building habits, he was able to get his elephant into gear.
