Power Quotes From The ShowWhen we are truly being authentic, we are not seeking attention, likes, or status. You won't see a state change in others if you're being inauthentic. Being selfish is one thing, being self-serving is another. - @LegendaryLifeClick To Tweet
“There's no need to quantify our emotions but for those who are searching for a way to do it, science can be something that leads them to a stage in life where they have more evidence showing the effectiveness of an emotional intelligence practice.” – Ted Ryce
“We try to use the power of our minds as we look for transformation through a book or a podcast. Sometimes a personal transformation can happen but far too often, even if we find clarity in someone's message, it still won't be a big enough state change because everyday life will eventually pull us out of it. Rather than taking that approach, I intuitively sought out certain activities that changed my state and the more I did them, the better I felt and the more they changed me as a person.” – Ted Ryce
“When we’re truly being authentic on social media, we’re not seeking attention, likes, or status; we’re sharing so that other people get something from it. If you check-in and feel like what you’re sharing is making a difference, you will also see a state change in other people. If you don’t, then maybe you shared it from an inauthentic place. Being selfish is one thing, being self-serving is another.” – Ted Ryce
“We all need to find what works for us and check-in internally rather than use research, randomized controlled studies, or a guru telling us what to do. We need to check in internally because only we have the answer and no one else. Everyone else is just a guide or giving some suggestions that could be good or bad but only you have the true answer.” – Ted Ryce
