“In that moment my life changed. Because then he gave me a framework of how to think, how to manage my emotions and self-regulate and how to upgrade my knowledge and skills so that I could become the person that could achieve all of those goals.” (9:02)

“In a state of stress, we always revert back to our highest level of training under stress. And what we have to do is interrupt that pattern, create a new empowering pattern, and now we have rewired our brain. And if we do that one time, ten times, thirty times, we have just deactivated the triggers that cause the effects.” (20:12)

“Amateurs practice until they get it right once or twice or three times. Pros practice until they can’t get it wrong.” (21:14)

“Is it possible that using the latest brain science you can actually set up an automatic pattern within yourself that checks and balances all the time? Your thoughts, emotions, feelings, sensations, behaviors? And the answer is absolutely.” (22:53)

“Our job in our 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, is to become aware of the pattern, interrupt the pattern, and create a new pattern. That is neuroplasticity at its very, very finest.” (26:48)

“Once we are in motion, we have choices. Once we are stuck, we are reinforcing a stuck pattern. So a little positive behavior in the right direction, even a behavior that is not in the right direction that you learn from, is better than stuck.” (30:59)
