“Suffering comes from not believing in yourself. Any form of not believing in yourself takes away your right to say, do, ask, or be anything you want. Making yourself suffer like that is what’s truly keeping you down.” – Lauren Handel Zander

Power Quotes From The Show
“The most beautiful thing you can do is understand where you come from and be in love with it. What are you going to do in the fulfillment of your life to honor your family, traits, and what’s possible by being one individual who rocks it?” – Lauren Handel Zander
“You’re stuck with yourself for the rest of your life. That inner dialogue of yours is your relationship to yourself. Do you like yourself when you look in the mirror? What are you saying to yourself? What do you think of other people? Where you are with yourself is basically the most important relationship you’re having that then extends to all the other areas in your life.” – Lauren Handel Zander
“We naturally operate out of fear and we’re afraid of people leaving us if we say or do the wrong thing. So, we lie to protect other people but really we’re not checking in with ourselves about why our relationships with other people are the way that they are. Fear is the protection mechanism that’s ruling us; not love.” – Lauren Handel Zander
“Most people, in their heart of hearts, know who they are but then they’re corrupted by the family history that has been carried on through them. By stripping away all of the views and issues that have been passed onto you, you can have your own dream of what you want to fulfill on this planet.” – Lauren Handel Zander
