Here are her key takeaways:

  1. A lot of people confuse their career with their purpose. They believe that just because what they’ve been doing for a long time they have to continue to do that. The reality is you can always start over.
  2. We navigate around the things we’re afraid of, we try and suppress our feelings. We try to do anything we can to stay in this comfort zone while also pretending that we are making moves.  
  3. The moment you activate the thought of competing with someone else, you’ve already lost….now your focus has shifted. Be your own competitor! Raise the level of competition within yourself. 
  4. The biggest thing as far as overcoming this constant comparison and not being able to be with ourselves because we are constantly looking for validation is to  rediscover who we are. We are all very unique beings and we are all here to serve a different purpose.
  5. Anxiety is “I don’t know what’s out there, and I’m scared to find out” versus curiosity is – “I don’t know what’s out there, but I’m going to find out!”
  6. When we talk about the things you want to manifest in your life and putting all of your energy towards what you want – forget about putting all your energy to the things you don’t want! 
  7. Reverse imagineering is creating a picture and use it as a blueprint. Paint that picture and make it your reality!
  8. Once you put one foot in front of the other its like a video game. Every time you take a step, more of the things illuminate in front of you. You see more and more and then you can figure out where you want to go. 
  9. if you can find something where you’re operating at with your passion and your purpose – you’re operating at the peak of existence at that point!
