  • 48:20 – Consumerism as abundance; Why does the newness of an item make me feel better about myself?
  • 51:05 – Who said alignment isn’t scrappy? You have to get your hands dirty, you have to do the hard work, you have to fight for what you know is true.
  • 53:50 – Ask yourself, is my vision of alignment and personal success respectful to the growth and success of others? Am i putting the work in day in and day out when no one is watching?
  • 54:55 – On the deepest energetic level, do I steal from others or hoard resources? Consider coworkers, mentors, bosses, family, etc. Schedule unscheduled time for yourself.
