You’re here because you know that it’s more important than ever that we show up for our own well-being with a positive, solutions-oriented mindset. Did you know that thinking positive, happy, hopeful, joyful and optimistic thoughts decreases cortisol and produces serotonin, which creates a sense of well-being? Well, it does! And this helps you and your brain function at peak capacity. We could all benefit from focusing on the good in our lives and in the world, and taking part in making more good happen. Here are some quotes that have inspired some of our Crazy Amazing Human guests and the greater community. We hope you enjoy!
“What is my purpose in life?” I asked the void.
“What if I told you that you fulfilled it when you took an extra hour to talk to that kid about his life?” said the voice. “Or when you paid for that young couple in the restaurant? Or when you saved that dog in traffic? Or when you tied your father’s shoes for him? Your problem is that you equate your purpose with goal-based achievement. The Universe isn’t interested in your achievements… just your heart. When you choose to act out of kindness, compassion and love, you are already aligned with your true purpose.
No need to look any further!”
Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me”
— Matthew 19:21

“Find your own Calcutta. Find the sick, the suffering, and the lonely right there where you are — in your own homes and in your own families, in your workplaces and in your schools. You can find Calcutta all over the world, if you have the eyes to see.”
“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
— Jane Goodall
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena…because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds… who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly…”
— Theodore Roosevelt

— Ezra Frech
“Try and leave this world a little better than you found it, and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate, you have not wasted your time but have done your best.”
— Robert Baden-Powell
