creating a new habit

"it's not just our own minds that try to trip up our new habits, it's also the situations themselves...[which] provide a whole new set of temptations to lure us away from our new habit. We go on a diet and cakes, chips, and beer are suddenly everywhere. Or we decide to walk to work and then it starts raining every day."

on public speaking

"if you realize that you have a chance to be generous in this moment, to teach and to lead, you can leave the self-doubt behind and speak a truth that the audience needs to hear. When you bring that to people who need it, your fear pales in comparison.
The faster we get over ourselves, the sooner we can do a good job for those tuning in."
