Since I found your podcast and several months ago joined Self-Coaching Scholars, I have been taking notes of things you said that resonated with me. I opened this file and started adding up new quotes and called it Quotable Brooke and wanted to share here some of my favorite quotes:
Trust. Trust that whatever happens will be the best thing that could happen for you.
Trust yourself to deal with whatever comes up when it does, so you believe you don’t have to be on guard all the time.
You’ve got your own back.
There are no wrong decisions. Make one and commit to it.
What matters is what you finish.
Confusion pretends to be necessary.
ON NOT KNOWING
You can’t say, ‘I don’t know.’ What if you did know, what would it be? Now what?
ON FEELING EMOTIONS
Accepting that negative emotion is part of the human experience will give you much more space when it comes to moving forward through unfamiliar situations that bring up uncomfortable emotions. Your willingness to feel any emotion will help you feel fearless in your life and willing to create the results you ultimately want. Know that there is no emotion that is worth being afraid of.
Self-growth will be your ticket to having an increased capacity for well-being.
When you answer that invitation, you are answering an invitation to hard work and a lot of negative emotion. You’re also answering the invitation to a lot of positive emotion, and a lot of the fulfillment, and maybe the ultimate emotion that we can all feel is that feeling of truly being self-actualized and making a contribution with our life.
ON NEGATIVE THINKING
When it comes to negative thinking we’re just asking, “Why are you choosing to think this way? Your thoughts create your feelings, why are you choosing to think this way?”
ON YOUR FUTURE SELF
If my future says, “Listen this is where we end up but you have to do the work to get here, what would you do?
You don’t want to say something like, “Sorry I didn’t do that for you, sorry we are still here.”
