Episode Highlights

We need to keep showing up in service of others rather than of ourselves.” – 6:13 – JP de Villiers

A lot of the work that I do as a coach is to help people commit to goals that they know are so much of a stretch, that once they can achieve that goal, there’s no way they can be the same person that they were when they got in touch with me.” – 9:57 – JP de Villiers

“Climbing a mountain is the perfect metaphor for facing challenges and adversity and uncertainty. Because there’s no amount of certainty that comes with climbing a mountain. All you can guarantee is I’ll take my next step. Everything else is just hoping for the best.” – 13:40 – JP de Villiers

Ask any child if they just want to be average. Not only will they say no, but they won’t understand what you mean. What does settling mean?” – 14:42 – JP de Villiers

Don’t use your thinking to change your thinking. First, use your habits. This is why daily practices are so important because our habits over time influence and impact who we become.” – 19:51 – JP de Villiers

Nothing in life can let you down other than your expectation of how you believe it should be. If you had no expectation of things going right, nothing can ever go wrong.” – 23:10 – JP de Villiers

“In times of uncertainty, at least have the certainty of who I am. Certainty comes from clarity.” – 27:14 – JP de Villiers

It is our responsibility to those we love, to our employees, to our team, and our followers to do our best. Even if doing our best means practicing self care.” – 30:39 – JP de Villiers

I want to know at the end of 2021, that what I stood for was truth, and love. Truth meaning to speak what I believe is the truth, and love meaning to be kind and compassionate to every single being, including myself.” – 45:00 – JP de Villiers

Keep doing the work on the inner world and the outer world will change, because when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – 50:44 – JP de Villiers
