Leah Gervais: Hello, welcome to the show. I’m your host, Leah Gervais. And today I wanted to record something really fun for you guys. I wanted to just share with you my favorite motivational quotes of all time. Now, if you’ve spent any amount of time on Pinterest or Instagram, you probably have seen some of these before.
But I think that the, the best use of motivational quotes and sort of motivators like that is when you can apply them to the circumstance you’re in, because even the most wild, my background is really like hot and cold. Um, even the most motivational quotes will serve you at certain times better than others. So I wanted to share with you guys, uh, which ones I chose, why I chose them, why I kind of always come back to them and what they helped me realize on my entrepreneurial journey. And, um, I have divided them up kind of based on where I was when I needed them the most.
So I hope that you bookmark this. If you love this, I hope that it’s just always there for you. If sometimes you need to either just need to pick me up or sometimes you just kind of need to like shut out the noise. I know I get like that sometimes where as much as I love podcasts and books and I’m connecting with others on social media, sometimes there really is something to be said for just like tuning out and kind of hearing yourself.
And so, um, while I’m going to be sharing my story with you with these, I really that the intention and the hope is that you’re able to see what you need from this. Be able to take that and be able to find some inspiration. So let’s go ahead and get started. Okay. The first three quotes that I want to share with you are quotes about getting started those very early days of entrepreneurship.
When you don’t know what’s going to happen, if you’re ready, if you shouldn’t quite go yet, all those types of things going around in your head, I’ve totally been there. And so here are some of the motivational quotes, some of my favorite motivational quotes about my philosophy on getting started. The first is a very classic quote by none other than Walt Disney, where he says the best way to get started is to “quit talking and begin doing”.
And it sounds so simple on the surface, but I really want you to think about where in your life you might be waiting for something to start until you have a bit more clarity on it, or a bit more, um, uh, some, some different plans on it or whatever the case may be. I have to say that I hear the excuse. I’m just not quite sure about X, Y, and Z, which is why I haven’t done X, Y, and Z.
That’s like the lack of clarity thing is probably the number one excuse that keeps people stuck. They feel like they need to have an entire program mapped out perfectly before they start selling it. They feel like they need to have their entire website done. Absolutely none of that is true. Now you don’t want to sell something that is a fluff, like you don’t want to sell something that you can’t deliver on, but the idea that you need, uh, these huge mechanics behind anything to sell, especially selling a service like a coaching or a consulting service is not only untrue, but it is a form.
One of fear because you’re hiding behind a logistics, which are never going to be the thing that sell. Anyway, if you can get someone a result, that’s what they’re going to pay you for. And number two, it almost is less genuine to the client because then you, aren’t leaving room for exploration with them, you know, regarding what they need.
Um, and I think that this lack of clarity thing never really goes away. So the more comfortable you are moving through things and, and, and course correcting constantly and pivoting constantly the better of an entrepreneur you’ll be. And I have, you know, this, this is very dear to my heart because when I started my business, it was called Urban 20 Something. And it was a blog for 20 somethings living in New York and 30 somethings, I guess, trying to figure out their way in the big city.
And I said, I guess, just because I didn’t really know what I was doing, but I worked for a month on the mission statement for that website before I published it, I created a Google doc. I had emailed it to some friends that I really trusted had them go back and forth with me. I drafted some of the about page.
Um, I really took a month to try to figure this all out and to try to have a clear mission and have a great about page before I even publish it. And you know what? I don’t think anyone ever saw either of those. I don’t think anyone ever saw that mission. And I don’t think anyone ever read the about page.
Why? Because by the time my website had taken off enough to the point where people were actually reading it and finding it, I probably had changed the mission. I probably had changed the about me page because you need to be changing those things constantly, depending on what you like, what people are responding to, what works well, what doesn’t work, that’s what makes a good entrepreneur, responding, pivoting, you know, reacting in a way that isn’t service, uh, doing what feels good to them.
Being able to pick up on what’s going to help them move faster. So the idea that you need to have all of these things done in order to start is not only not true, but it could really be harming you. And it could actually be signs of fear and not strong entrepreneurship, honestly. So if you have been waiting for a program to be perfect, or your website to be done, or your mission statement to be drafted in order to sell, make money, do whatever it is that, you know, you’re really ready for. Let Walt be your guide that as he says, uh, the best way to get started is to quit talking, quit talking it out, quit talking to others about it, just do it.
Okay. Quote, number two, still in the starting phase of my favorite inspirational quotes is from Aristotle. And this one is about the fear of judgment. This was something that I very much suffered with before I started my business. I literally didn’t even tell a lot of people that I did it for about a year, because I was afraid of what they think about me. I was purely relying on people that would find me on the internet to make money, which is absurd.
But I was so terrified. I was afraid people from high school would make of me, people from college. Um, and I was just really afraid. People were gonna laugh at me. So if you’ve ever experienced that, then this quote is for you. Aristotle said, there’s only one way to avoid criticism and that is to do nothing, say nothing and be nothing. And I still think about this all the time. Every time I post something that I worry, someone might say, who does she think she is? Or I worry that it might sound boastful, or I worry that it’s not good enough.
You know, on either side of the coin, we have to remember that the only way to avoid those judgments we’re so afraid of is to literally do nothing. And I would even piggyback off of this and say that nowadays people will also judge you for doing nothing. So the idea isn’t to avoid judgment or to avoid criticism it’s to not let it dictate your actions, because then you are letting in my case, I was letting people from high school or college who I don’t talk to anymore, who are not part of my life, who probably never were really part of my life to begin with, you know, in any substantial way, dictate my circumstances, dictate my business or dictate my future.
And so we really have to ask ourselves, who’s running your life. People that you, people that you’re afraid of judging you or you, um, and you know, people are going to judge you, but they’re going to judge you no matter what you do.
So don’t let that be a deciding factor in what you know is best for you. And also as someone who has been very afraid of judgment with different things, I posted on social media, different things, I’ve launched different things. I’ve said, uh, there are things that I probably wouldn’t do again, who cares you learn and you move on. It doesn’t matter. It literally doesn’t matter unless you assign meaning to it. So don’t do that to yourself.
You know, the only way you can move through it is by just trying and continuing on the third quote in this starting category is about the fear of spending money. Um, this was another huge thing I had to move through. When I started my business, I am very open about the fact that I went into debt to start my business and not just debt, but debt that I thought was the most evil thing in the world credit card debt.
And I try to be open about that because I had I had so much shame about that in the beginning. And I felt like I was going against everything that I knew, everything Dave Ramsey had taught me everything. My parents had taught me everything that I should not have known better, or I should have known better than to do, but I did it anyway. And I, in no way, encourage debt, you know, everyone needs to make their own decisions, but that’s what I encourage is make your own decisions for so long.
I was making decisions based on what personal finance experts were telling me. And those didn’t pertain to starting a business. Those didn’t pertain to investing in a side hustle so that you could have it be your full time job. One day, this is what I needed to do for me, nonetheless, it was terrifying and all the things that I was scared of happening when I did it, they even did come true.
So it was scary enough spending the money, but then I was extra scared that I would lose sleep at night. Then I was extra scared that my credit score would drop. Then I was extra scared that, um, I wouldn’t be able to pay back on time. And I was extra scared that I would have interest on my credit cards for eternity, never be able to pay them off, end up being, you know, on like good morning America as like the poster child for millennials that are entitled and didn’t know, don’t know how to handle their money.
Like that’s where my head went. And that all is because of how scared I was from leaving what I knew to be safe. And so this motivational quote is what will really help you through something like that. If you’ve ever felt like that too, it’s from Helen Keller. And she said, “security is mostly a superstition, life is either a daring adventure or nothing”.
So how does this pertain to spending money? Well, oftentimes we either don’t spend money or we claim onto our savings because we think it gives us security. When in reality, we have all learned this year more than ever. That security is really only how you will. Security is only within you. You are your only security knowing that you will come through for yourself, knowing that you’ll work hard for yourself, knowing that you won’t self abandon.
If things get hard, that security, your savings account can drain, your 401k can crash. If the stock market crashes, um, you know, there’s a million different things that could happen that could change your financial situation or any situation that makes you feel secure in an instant, um, life is not supposed to be secure. I think the only security you have is your relationship with self yourself and your relationship with God that I don’t think that God put us here to feel like we’re getting safety from our savings accounts.
You know what I mean? I think he probably would be like, hello. Like I am more mighty than numbers on a screen yet we really do treat it like it is the end all be all. And like, it is our God. And Helen Keller’s motivational quote really spoke to me because it really helped me remember that, you know, this isn’t just about spending money. This is about my life. This is about my life going in the direction that I wanted to go in. This is about me doing what I want to do. This is about me starting the business. I want to start.
And as many of you probably know the end story that ended up being the best, one of the best decisions I ever made, because it did allow me to quit my full time job. And now I have very blessed and I’m not saying this to brag, but to get the point across, I am grateful to have a salary far beyond what I would have had if I would have stayed in my nine to five job and I never would have taken the adventurous route. So, in that remember that security is just a superstition. Your only security is you coming through for yourself, which is why that is more important than anything else. And your relationship with the higher power and life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
All right, moving on to the next set of my favorite motivational quotes. We’re going to talk a little bit about failing. So I’m somewhat doing this in chronological order, because at first it was really uncovering the fears behind starting a business. And this may not even be about starting a business specifically, but starting a, you know, I still go through these when I create something new or offer something new, or I raise my price when you’re doing anything new. Um, you, you feel like a beginner all over again. And so those are the things that can, that helped me through that and that continue to help me through that.
Now, once you’re on the track, once you’ve started, once you’ve, you know, become brave and, and stepped up and decided you were going to do it, what happens when you fail? What happens when things don’t go according to plan? What happens when you don’t pay your credit card back on time? What happens when you’re getting a ton of rejections after you thought that people would be so excited to say yes, what happens when things, uh, you get mean comments? What happens when a launch flops, all these very real failures that happened to all of us? How do we get through those?
So this is one of my favorite motivational quotes of all time. This is probably my favorite, one of my favorite ones on the list. I have a very special one at them. So please stay tuned for the end.
This is one of Michael Jordan’s motivational quotes, greatest basketball player of all time. He says, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my corner. I’ve lost almost 300 games, 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and I missed, I have failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” Isn’t that incredible? It’s the reminder that any for business, and then we’ll talk about life in general, but any, any business is going to hear more no’s than they’re going to hear yes’s.
Okay. Okay. Um, and you’re always going to be rejected more than you’re going to be accepted and you should be that means that you are trying enough. If you’re only looking to get like a 100% conversion rate, then you’re thinking about it incorrectly. Because if you are putting yourself out there and you are having those failures and those rejections, that means that you’re trying, that means that you’re learning. That means that there’s really nothing bad that can come out of it. You know, if the worst case scenario you learn what not to do the next time around.
And so I love that Michael Jordan quote, because I think it’s such a good Testament to how easy it is to look at someone who is perceived as the greatest of all time in their niche, or super successful, a legend even, and still, they failed more times than they succeeded. They got rejected more times than they, than they achieved whatever they wanted, every business does. So see those as wins. It’s so true that if you’re not feeling you’re not trying.
Okay, the next failure quote is from Florence Nightingale. She says, “I attribute my success to this. I never gave or took any excuse”. This is one of my favorite motivational quotes in particular because it speaks to something that I talk about frequently, which is radical personal responsibility. Some of you may have heard this story about how I realized that I was in a victim mindset when I started my business without knowing it. And you might be too. And that doesn’t mean that you are not a self disciplined person. It doesn’t mean anything about you. It just might mean that there could be more power in your life that you haven’t quite taken on yet, and you get to know do so.
So here’s some examples though. I always had seen myself as very disciplined. And when I started my business, I really prided myself on the parts of my life that I did feel disciplined in. I exercised a lot. I ate well, I was very, very strict with my budget so that I was saving a little bit every month from the very, very small salary that I could. And it wasn’t, I shouldn’t say small salary in the sense that, you know, it was everything’s relative, but in terms of New York, it was, and it felt small.
So though I was in those circumstances and I felt like I probably didn’t have any victim mindset at all. I always took responsibility for my life. I always had that kind of like pull yourself up kind of attitude. What I learned was that I was completely wrong. And so here’s an example of a way in which I had a totally victim mindset and I didn’t realize it. I went to NYU for college and NYU is an expensive school. And I took out student loans to go there.
So, I graduated with pretty heavy student loans, and that was a big reason why I didn’t ever feel like I had any money ever, ever any month because I constantly was paying back my loans. So I would have these subtle ways of thinking and speaking about though, about that, that implied, that it wasn’t my fault that I had those loans.
You know, I would say things like, Oh, well, if I didn’t have my loans, I would love to live in a nicer apartment, or I could go on this vacation or I could shop at whole foods or whatever the case may be, but I don’t. So I can’t do those things. And though it might sound innocent enough on the surface every time he said something like that, I was giving more power to NYU, which is an institution and a building that I chose to go to than I was to myself.
Now, there are nuances here, including the fact that I chose to go at 18. There’s obviously a huge student debt epidemic in this country, and I’m not really trying to make a commentary on those. I’m trying to give you an example of how even those circumstances might actually be unfair in your life, or they might be less than ideal.
You know, those things can be true and you still have the opportunity to start talking about them differently, to cut out the word “hopefully” to stop saying things that imply that there’s circumstances other than your own decision making that get you there. And so I love this quote by her because it’s basically saying if you don’t ever take any excuse, including, and most importantly, your own excuses for why your life, isn’t the way you want your life will be the way he wants.
And so when I stopped, you know, having this sob story about how I had debt from NYU and because of my student loans, I wasn’t able to do the things I wanted and I never had any money leftover. I started thinking, okay, well, how can I change this? Maybe I’ll start a side hustle. How can I make money from that side hustle?
How can I refinance my loan so that I have a smaller interest rate and can pay them off faster or whatever the case may be. And things started to dramatically change in my life. So there are so many things that can come from what seemed like simple shifts. When you step into the mindset that you will not take any excuse for why things aren’t the way they are in your life. All right. The final motivational quotes in our chapter on failing is by Winston Churchill.
He says “the pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity, the optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty”. Now this might sound like one of those abstract motivational quotes, probably a concept you’ve heard before glass half full is how you see more opportunities. But I never though I have heard this quote several times. I didn’t really learn what this looks like until I started working with a man named David Neagle, who’s one of my, one of my mentors. He’s brilliant. And he really taught me how our society, as a whole, doesn’t teach us to see solutions from different opportunities.
We have a fear based mindset collectively, um, which isn’t, it’s not meant to be a judgmental statement. It’s just meant to make you realize that a lot of the times people are reacting to things or responding to things or making decisions from places of how to overcome the obstacle or being afraid of the obstacle happening to them.
But because what is called the universal law of polarity with every obstacle, there is equally an opportunity. And when you can start seeing that everywhere you, I mean, this was probably the most transformative lesson I’ve learned in all of my entrepreneurship journey. That is when you never worry about making money again, that’s when you don’t worry about people not buying that’s when your failures become a small bump in the road, instead of something that keeps you out of the game for days, weeks, or even months.
That’s when things really start to flow, because you are able to just really swim through or be in flow from one opportunity to the next, instead of getting stuck along an obstacle, because you’re so focused on the obstacle and you can’t get through the obstacle. And so this has been said for quite some time and in many different ways.
And I feel lucky on this point in particular, because my dad really raised me, like always, he always talked about positive, the power of positive thinking and gratitude. And so, you know, all of that is related, but I recommend really sinking this into your brain more than almost anything else. Because as an entrepreneur, you will have more obstacles than almost anyone else, you know, and you’ll have more opportunity. So you have to train your brain to see the opportunity and not allow ways of thinking that maybe happened to you in the past, or that your friends and family have that don’t necessarily think like this to influence how you see your path and your business and everything around you.
Okay. The final set of motivational quotes. Thank you guys for sticking with me. And again, I have a very special one at the end, so I hope you stay for it.
The final set of motivational quotes is about excelling. So you started the business or the project. Now you have gone on to, uh, adapting to failure, thinking about failure, differently, refusing to fail, seeing failures, just learning all those very normal things that come with entrepreneurship. And now let’s talk about how you can really take off how you can really Excel.
Okay. The first of two motivational quotes is from one of my favorite teachers of all time at Mr. Bob Proctor, he says, simply “thoughts become things, if you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand”. I really learned so much from Bob Proctor when I was living in New York city. And I have to say that I will forever be grateful to have learned all of it in New York city, because his teachings are really about the power of the mind and the power of visualization and truly learning that most people don’t achieve what they want, because most people don’t try to achieve what they want.
Most people only go for what they think they can have. And so if you start realizing you can have anything, then life starts becoming very different. And it was so cool learning this in New York because, uh, you know, it seemed like every time I would come up out of a subway or every time I would, um, like an elevator would open with a view or whatever, New York city is just one huge product of visionaries.
Every building in that city at one point was just in someone’s mind’s eye. Um, you know, in some of the most famous buildings in the world, they’re like the Chrysler building, the empire state building. Now the freedom tower, especially the Chrysler building and the empire state building people probably thought they were nuts. When, when those visionaries came forth and said, we’re going to build these buildings. They’re going to be the tallest buildings in the world.
And they were at the time, and this is how they’re going to look and we’re going to do it, you know, and people, so many people probably thought, this is crazy. Why are we doing this? Is this possible? Is this necessary? You know, what is really the vision here? Uh, but because he or those people, I’m assuming there were men, um, had those visions. Whether they knew it or not, they were right that because they could hold it in their mind, they could hold it in their hand, so to speak as Bob Proctor puts it.
So that’s one of the fun motivational quotes because it really reminds you of how powerful you are and whatever, truly whatever you can see in your mind, you can see in your material world. Okay. The next quote is by Oprah, and this one of her motivational quotes is that “you can have it all, but you can’t have it all at once”.
This is something I have learned very much over the years. Um, and that I teach my clients a lot over the years. I think that, um, once you start realizing how powerful you are, once you go on a personal development journey, once you start uncovering ways that you might be limiting yourself, whether you’re a business owner or not, things get really exciting. I remember feeling like I was walking around with Rose colored glasses for like a year. I still kind of feel like I am, and then you start realizing, wow, I can have more than I ever thought I could.
I can have more money, more fun, more abundance. I can live differently than I ever thought I could. It can be very fun. It can be very exciting. But then sometimes there’s kind of this moment where it’s like, Whoa, can I really do everything? Like everything I want is that really available to me? Is it safe to do that? Does that make sense? Am I going to exhaust myself?
Am I going to spend all my money? Am I going to, you know, not have any friends, like it can get sort of like, kind of like a balance it’s back in happen. And this is the best way that I’ve ever really learned to deal or to address this. I shouldn’t say deal with it. And I also want to piggyback on another concept off of it, but the first, the first of her motivational quotes here was saying, you can have it all.
You can have it all, but you can’t have it all at once was monumental for me because it really helped me be more focused in my business and stop trying to do all the things I remember when I started, I was like, I’m going to learn Spanish. I’m also going to take piano lessons. I’m going to build a course and have an affiliate marketing thing going on and be a coach and be a speaker and be an author.
And now I believe I could do all of those things, but really being focused on doing one at a time has been huge for my business and me. I’ve never been a focus person in high school. I wanted to do everything. I wanted to be like a superstar student taking all the APS. I also studied abroad. Um, I wanted to, you know, be on the dance team and do theater and it did not go well for me.
High school was rough for me. I was constantly exhausted. I ended up not excelling really at anything. I was okay at most things. And then in college, excuse me, it was the same way. I loved being in New York. I wanted to do all these things with NYU and like their clubs and their social scene. So I wanted to work and start my life in the city. And so at school.
And so finally, for the first time in my life, really understanding the power of, okay, you can do all those things, but you need to do one at a time is I think why I found my stride and why it was able to kind of like find my zone of genius. So I love that. And then to piggyback off of that is also the concept that I believe over talks about, which is taking, taking a stand for the “and” so you can be, you can be two things, whereas so many people in our society only tell you, you can be one, you can be a mother and a business owner.
You can be charitable and make a lot of money. You can be, you know, you can indulge and still be really healthy there. It doesn’t have to be an either or so much, um, at all. Actually it just comes with knowing the chapter and, and doing the right thing at the right time. All right, we are almost there only two more motivational quotes and the, like I keep saying the last one’s really special. So I hope you tune in with me for the last of the motivational quotes or the second to last of the motivational quotes is by Stephen Kobe.
He says, “I am not a product of my circumstances, I am a product of my decisions”. So back in 2018, when my business took off, that was really the first time that I think that that was the year I quit my nine to five job I made my year, my word of the year decisions because that year was all about learning the power of making a decision quickly and not wavering on it, which is another thing that I think people commonly, especially, unfortunately, women do.
We don’t always trust ourselves to make the right decisions. So it takes us a while to, we feel the need to consult with other people about a decision. And then even after we’ve made the decision, sometimes we want a do over we second, guess ourselves. We’re not sure if we made the right decision.
Examples of this are examples of this are taking a job, not taking a job, breaking up with someone, starting a business, spending a significant amount of money on something, um, doing something that not many people do. And I like to think that I was relatively intuitive, you know, beforehand, but really saw the difference when I realized that if I just make quicker decisions, even if I did end up making a wrong decision, I would then A learn from that decision and then B still be, be still further along where I could just make a different decision to get out of that situation.
And I would always, always every single time be further along then, should I still be in indecision about the original decision? And that was transformative for me. That’s why so many things happened in that year. That was one that was a very difficult year of my life. I had some very huge personal tragedy happen, but that’s what ignited my interest in like being a quicker decision maker and listening to my gut.
It made me realize how short life was. And that was the year that in a matter of months, my side hustle took off around my nine to five job. I started working with really incredible mentors and learning from some of the smartest only marketers out there. I quit my nine to five job without looking back. I had my first five figure month. I got engaged. My life just started taking shape in the most incredible of ways.
And it’s because I finally switched the way I was thinking after years of waiting or wondering of indecision of, will this happen, is this happening? Can I do this instead of just saying, I’m going to do this. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll figure something else out, but I’m not going to be in indecision anymore. So I think that the point of these motivational quotes is recognizing that you are always one decision away from a different life. And if you’re not in a situation you want to be in, you are not a victim to that situation.
You are, you made the decisions that made you that put you there. Most of the time. I think that there’s an important disclaimer here when people are victims of abuse or systematic inequalities. And I’m not trying to make any commentary on those, but I hope that I’m making my point clear, which is that you’ll always have more power.
If you see yourself as the reason that you’re in the situation you’re in, because then you, yourself are all you need to get out of the situation. Should you want to.
All right guys, thank you for tuning in my very last of my motivational quotes which is very special to me. This is something I’ve never shared publicly, but this is one of the motivational quotes on success from my late father who was a business owner and an entrepreneur and still is somewhat my business partner.
He is probably my biggest role model in the world and he passed away two years ago. And, uh, as a business owner, he had Alyssa kind of like advice that he had kept over the years. I think he did this when he celebrated, I don’t know a milestone in business, but I have them. And I wanted to share one with you guys today that I think about a lot, I think about many of them.
But this one is, It’s actually a great marketing tip. It’s not going to be as sentimental as it might think, as you might think, but it’s a great marketing tip. So my dad was a CPA, which on the surface is typically not the most exciting job in the world. And I’m not saying that to be judgemental, but we all, I think all I can think of is parks and rec, you know, and the accounting jokes. Yeah, my dad, I found ways to make that a successful business.
And he said, “don’t work for money, work for purpose and passion. The more you work primarily for money, the less you will have. Strive to give much more than you receive, and you will become happy and content with your work. Be grateful for all blessings and challenges that come your way. There is something about gratitude that makes all the difference.”
Okay. So nevermind, this wasn’t really the marketing one, but I’m going to read this one more time because this is, this encompasses a lot of what we talked about. This is about giving more than you receive. Yes, make a lot of money. I’m all about that, especially for women, but you can always give more than what you charge, which is what the point should be. And this is also about gratitude.
Well, thank you so much. He was an amazing father. Okay. I’m gonna read it one more time because it’s kind of long, “don’t work for money, work for purpose and passion. The more you work primarily for money, the less you will have. Strive to give much more than you receive and you will become happy and content with your work. Be grateful for all the blessings and challenges that come your way. There is something about gratitude that makes all the difference.”
So I wanted to wrap it up with that because there’s so many words of wisdom in there. All I’m honestly thinking about giving more than you receive, thinking about having passion and purpose with what it is that you do. Um, being grateful for what you have and being grateful for the challenges that are there, because they are uniquely designed for you to go through them so that you can get to a higher place.
You can get to a next level, you can get to whatever goal you’re working toward, whatever vision you’re manifesting. And there is something about gratitude that makes all the difference. It’s so true. I think that there has been many studies on why that is, but my dad’s simple words were, “there’s just something about it”. So thank you guys so much for tuning in with me on this Saturday. I hope that this gave you a little bit of inspiration.

Whenever you need a reminder that there are so many things that you don’t think you can handle, that you can, or there are so many more things you can handle than you could ever imagine. You are capable of so much more than you know, and every, every name that I read today, you know, some of these, these greatest of all time, these people that will be inspiring for the rest of eternity, they are human, just like you. You can do that.
You’re only a mindset shift away from seeing things completely differently, having things completely differently, doing things differently and you know, leaving your own legacy. So never underestimate the power of your mind and the power of yourself. And also don’t forget to have fun with this because I’m pretty sure that that’s what most of these people would say. That is the point after all. And I also know that that’s what my dad would say. So I hope that you guys love this here is to your biggest vision. And I hope you have a great day. Bye
