Kamal told no one about it. It was his “stake on the planet”- he was going to hold onto it come hell or high water.
“I really do believe to create anything great in life, whether it’s in ourselves or outside, it requires a full on commitment. I don’t believe in the middle ground.”
“I think I’m the laziest person on the planet…but I get a lot done because I make commitments”
“The vow to oneself, is the ultimate sacred act”
“When you start saying ‘How do I do this?’, your brain starts looking for answers”
“It’s one thing to make a vow, the work is living it. The vow is like the line in the sand. Now get up and do the work.”
“If you start loving yourself, you start becoming a pretty damn good human to be around”
“I realized that the only thing I could work on was my inside. My outside was falling apart.”
Rather than reacting to the outside world, focus on what you can control – your self-talk
Everything starts with your thoughts
“All I had to do was tell the truth, in the clearest, simplest manner possible, and that’s what I said”
“The thing about putting yourself out there – I was terrified, I almost didn’t publish this book.”
“You don’t know what’s going to happen. You gotta do it, and on the other side is magic.”
“You gotta have something you believe in. If you’re afraid of what people are going to think of you, because of what you believe in, that’s when you do it. Not for the sake of being vulnerable. It’s got to be something you will really stand up for.”
Everyone has their own truth, but how do you get to discover it?
“If you have a truth, share it. It changes peoples’ lives.”
