Bishop T.D. Jakes on Going Against the Odds

This episode is sponsored by altMBA.

“We get messed up when we think of destiny in terms of destination. I have learned over the years that if you fall in love with the journey, the destination is inevitable. Fall in love with not being there, the process, the problems, the staircase, not the landing.”

Dr. Kelly Flanagan on Worthiness, Belonging and Purpose

This episode is sponsored by altMBA.

“I’m worthy by virtue of my very existence. And that means everyone around me also is worthy by virtue of their very existence. I realize that I’m walking in a world of worthy people and I can treat people as such and I can expect to be treated as such. Then life becomes a lot more compassionate and caring and supportive.”

Michael Shermer on Why We Should Be Skeptics

“Skepticism doesn’t come natural. It takes extra effort. It isn’t pleasant. I would much rather believe lots of things about the world. I wish the world was simpler, and not as complicated, and the economy, and politics in ideology, and war, and international relations. These things are messy and it would be much easier to just believe something simple. And this is why fake news sells so well.”

Talli Osborne on Embracing Your Differences

“Instead being neutral about your curves, your bigger nose, your blonde hair or your curly hair, or whatever the thing is that you think makes you different that you don’t like. Instead of being neutral about it or even disliking it, embrace it and let it sparkle. Show the world you love that quirk that you have, because you’re gonna meet somebody and people that love that about you.”

Bernadette Jiwa on Following Your Hunches

“Part of the problem is that we start off looking for opportunities to succeed, instead of looking for problems to solve. We end up falling in love with our own ideas and it’s far more fruitful to look for problems that are begging for solutions than to think about how can we create the next big thing.”
