NOTEWORTHY QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE
“We did this whole process called, it’s like alter ego, but it’s alter shego, and my alter shego is the Queen of Confidence. … That’s who I aspire to be every day. But, I’m not her every day.”
“I thought confidence was the gold star, that once I’m confident, then I will be XYZ. And it’s like, no, it doesn’t guarantee that. It’s actually a horrible process that is really difficult. But you should do it anyway.”
“When we studied the most confident women, it was a practice, it looked kind of like a yoga practice, like a meditation. You don’t get good, you don’t get ‘meditated’. You’re never gonna reach ‘meditated’. … You are meditating, but there’s no end goal. So, there’s no I’m confident, you can’t say that. I can’t say I’m confident.”
“They the people that you look up to don’t think they’re good enough, the people that you look up to think that they’re messed up, and they’re not good enough. And there’s all kinds of stuff, but we think they don’t because we don’t know.”
“The number one thing that stops the women I see from creating confidence is they give too many fucks about what other people have to say about them. It freezes them, it costs them everything.”
