Podcast Quotes:

  • "What we're really trying to do when we're creating an affirmation is we're priming our brain, we're priming that reticular activating system to look for evidence that the affirmation thought is true." (8:08-8:20 | Ben)

  • "When we feel different, we show up differently. And we can increase our likelihood that we'll have the requisite internal resources to go out and act in a way that gets us the kind of results that we want in the world." (13:54-14:06 | Paige)

  • "You'll know your affirmation is starting to really take root when you find yourself thinking the thought without intending to think it." (15:33-15:39 | Ben)

  • "Saying nice things to yourself is better than not saying nice things to yourself. But if those affirmations aren't in perfect alignment with your vision for yourself and your future, they're going to be a little bit less impactful." (18:59-19:10 | Ben)

  • "It might be super easy and be a really seamless transition to start thinking positive thoughts about yourself and taking on an affirmation practice. But if it isn't, just know that something in you is trying to keep you safe. Your brain is trying to save energy by doing things the way it's always done." (33:09-33:23 | Paige)
