Quotes in This Episode

“That was the first time I realized, ‘Oh my God, your mind and body are so connected.’ I have lost who I am in this organization...So, our body is always sending us signals.” —Stella Grizont

 

“I realized that the essence of what I love to do was to listen to people and help them live their dream life.” —Stella Grizont

 

“So, it's funny because for thousands of years philosophers, mystics, teachers, poets, religious leaders have all wrestled with what does it mean to live the life worth living, and it's only in about the last 20 or so years that scientists have started asking that question.” —Stella Grizont

 

“There's tons of toxic work environments. We know that nearly 80% of people worldwide are unengaged in their work–7 out of 10 in the US. So, people are checking out.” —Stella Grizont

 

“The way I help my clients–and this is the first thing I do with my clients–is I help them establish a vision of not what it is that they want to achieve or do or accomplish in five years, it's about how do I want to be, because you can achieve a bunch of goals and still be miserable.” —Stella Grizont

 

“Traditional psychology, as we know, it is a deficit model. So, it asks what's wrong with people and how do we get them from negative five to zero–how do we get them back to normal? Positive psychology uses the same empirical approach–so evidence-based approach–but it asks a different set of questions. It asks, ‘How do we get people from zero to plus five?’” —Stella Grizont
